The Space

This is a private studio with 500 sq. ft. and it's own entrance and patio in the back of our home next to "green space". It sits in a lovely neighborhood 2 miles from downtown SLO and Cal Poly University. There is off-street parking provided for one vehicle. The studio includes a queen bed, bathroom with shower, dining table with two chairs and kitchenette. The kitchenette includes a small fridge, microwave, full size sink and dishes/utensils and other culinary tools. Coffee and tea with fixings are provided for our guests. A press pot with hot water kettle or drip coffee machine are provided to make coffee/tea. There is a large closet in the main living area. There is a folding luggage rack and iron/board for your use stored in the bathroom closet. Our guests get a freshly made bed with cotton linens and towel sets for the bathroom.

There is a DVD player with some complimentary movies and large flat screen monitor however NO CABLE so no TV. Wireless internet is also provided. You can also connect your laptop to the flat screen and play movies for a nice movie experience if you subscribe to a movie service such as Netflix.

The patio has a teak table with four chairs that's great for dining. For Al Fresco dining, we can make a BBQ grill with stove-top available upon request. You can open the french doors for a nice experience. An umbrella is available depending on the season, as well as a hammock with pillows.

This place is best suited for a single person or couple with possibly one child. Parties are not allowed.

It is a very quiet place in a nice neighborhood with a lovely view of Bishops Peak from the studio and access to the trails through the neighborhood. Trail views are epic and it is a nice hike to gorgeous scenery and photo ops. In the springtime the wildflowers along the trails are stunning and will be sure to put a big smile on your face. We happily provide hiking information since we frequently walk the trails. Be sure to bring good walking shoes, sun block and a hat if you want to try some of the trails. I also recommend you bring layered clothing and especially jacket/windbreaker for nighttime and mornings, SLO gets very cold at night even in the summer months. If you paint, bring a camera to capture inspirational photos because the setting is magical. There are also plenty of bike trails.

The beach is 10 minutes away and the sunsets on the coast are truly fantastic.

Downtown SLO is 2 miles away and it is an exceedingly vibrant downtown with great restaurants, movie and coffee houses, and is simply nice to walk around. Farmer's Market is every Thursday from 6pm-9pm, live entertainment, great food and interesting people.

The studio is 13 miles from Pismo Beach, 16 miles from Arroyo Grande, 13 miles from Morro Bay, 33 miles from Cambria, 29 miles from Paso Robles, and 94 miles from Santa Barbara - and is exactly between San Francisco and L.A.

If you just want to get away and spend a quiet time in a beautiful place this is the spot for you.

We are striving to keep our rental very reasonable and we love families, we request if you have a child with you we ask that you be sensitive to cleaning up before you leave. We do not charge a cleaning fee.

Depending on the season we may leave out a hammock for our guests' use, please bring in the pillows and blankets if it looks like it will rain.

Depending on the season we may leave out an umbrella for the patio table, please bring it down if there is a lot of wind.

Launderosa Laundromat is about a mile from the studio if you want to do laundry. I highly recommend it, it is very clean and conveniently located near Cal Poly.
