Cozy up to the fireplace for a relaxing evening in the heart of everything San Luis. This charming 600 sq ft upstairs apartment in a small tri-plex is perfectly located just 2 short blocks to beautiful, lively downtown San Luis Obispo. It’s an easy walk to restaurants, unique shops, the Mission, wine tasting, art viewing and the famous farmers market on Thursday night and less than one mile to Cal Poly.

The space is stylishly decorated, comfortable and selectively furnished, leaving you lots of room to sprawl, enjoy the art and make yourself at home. The full kitchen/dining is stocked with everything you need for cooking meals if you choose as well as a list of our personal, local favorite restaurants and coffee shops to experience if you would rather head out and explore our town’s numerous dining options. As the evening winds down you will likely want to curl up next to the fireplace on the comfy couch to watch a movie or call it a night cuddling up in the sublimely comfortable California king bed, welcoming you with a sumptuous down comforter and soft cotton bedding for a quite nights sleep. Upon awakening, we have a drip coffee funnel with filters, grinder etc. to whip up a wicked “pour over” cup o’ joe as well as a variety of teas and an electric kettle for boiling water. Coffee shops are also 2 blocks away. The bathroom has a tub and shower, hair dryer and all your showering amenities. There is a laundry room downstairs if you need to do some washing for your longer stays. Ideally the apartment sleeps two but we can fit an extra (smallish) person on the 6’ couch if needed, there is also an air mattress and extra bedding available if requested.

This was a really delightful apartment. It retains a number of classic (1950s?) details like the vanity, built-ins, and countertops, which added a ton of charm to the place. It was spacious, really tastefully furnished, and even had really good interesting art on the walls. The bed was very comfy. The location is superb, just about 1.5 blocks from what I would call "proper" downtown SLO, but there are plenty of great places to eat and drink within less than a block (SLO Provisions across the street was a favorite). We didn't meet Lorna in person, but she was prompt and helpful in all our communications with her. Really nothing bad to say about this place--it was a pretty good value, considering how central it is, and what lodging and rental costs are like in SLO these days. We had a great time!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a wedding this past weekend, and Lorna's place couldn't have been more perfect. It is exactly as pictured, super clean, easy check in, parking, and was in a great location. You were walking distance to the main downtown area as well as a 5 minute drive to our wedding location at Higueria Ranch. We would definitely stay here again or recommend to friends!

This is a bright and airy apartment located a few blocks from downtown SLO. It is clear that a lot of thought and care has been put into making it a cozy and inviting place to stay. It is very clean. The bathroom has a nice assortment of toiletries and fluffy towels. The bed is large and really comfortable. There are cool midecentury pieces throughout the apartment. Thanks to the book on local hikes, we found a fascinating hike to Poly Canyon, also known as the Cal Poly architecture graveyard. We had a wonderful stay!

My partner and I had a wonderful stay at Lorna's! The apartment was a perfect combination of style and comfort and location can't be beat. Lorna provides you with a great photo book of her favorite SLO spots and it was also really nice to see Lorna's artwork on the walls. Lorna was really responsive and friendly and we will DEFINITELY be coming back!

Lorna User ProfileLorna is a superhost.

Born and raised in the hills of southeast Ohio I landed here in SLO with my South African surfer husband 22 years ago. We love living in this beautifully rural yet sophisticated town. Together we are raising three wonderful children and working as a local business owner of a wellness center and I am an artist and designer, passionate about creating beautiful spaces that function well and feel good, I am excited to share my passion with the guests who stay with us. My mother, Heike lives next door in the small tri-plex. She is a wonderful german lady who taught me about “beautifying” the world. She is an amazing cook, gardener, caretaker and an all around lovely, quiet person who recently moved here from Ohio to make her home in San Luis Obispo. You will most likely find her strolling around her little garden should you have any immediate questions or needs.
