Hilary and Richard's home was wonderful! I felt completely welcome upon arrival and very comfortable with the household during my entire visit. The room was lovely, (amply designed for two) with attention given to important details of quality such as sheet fabric, thirsty towels and quality beverages. I have already recommended this lovely home to friends and family and look forward to returning 'home' next time I visit SLO. :-)
Very grateful for such a happy experience!
What a heavenly place to stay in! Very private, safe and comfortable. It was my first time using airbnb and I am very satisfied.
My experience at Richard and Hilary's home was great. The room was private, quiet, large. The bed was unbelievably comfortable, and the bathroom was incredibly large, with an amazing view of the SLO valley. Hilary was very welcoming. The neighborhood is one of the nicer in SLO, with a lot of unique custom, beautiful homes. I would definitely recommend anyone stay here.
Our stay in the luxurious Eagle's Nest was so relaxing!! Hilary is a charming and sweet hostess and we immediately felt at home. The wine tasting table was all set up and ready for us to enjoy when we arrived. Also, we admired the Chinese corner commemorating the Chinese contribution to SLO history. The desk and comfy computer chair were so handy to check emails, etc. We walked to the famous Thursday night Farmers' Market, a wonderful experience especially if you love barbecued ribs! The bed was so comfortable and of course the bathroom is to die for!! The bathroom is so large that it has 4 windows and amazing views! I think we used up all the Starbuck's K-Cup pods for the Keurig machine. It was so delicious and fun to enjoy in the morning while getting ready. We highly recommend Richard and Hilary's master bedroom suite.
Richard wasn't home during our stay but his wife, Hilary was. She was very welcoming and warm and the house was stunning. She greeted us at our car and made us feel at home!
My son and I were visiting San Luis Obispo to tour the university. We had an outstanding experience at Richard's home. The setting was gorgeous, nice neighborhood, beautiful views and quiet. Our room/bathroom was spacious, light, and well appointed. The huge king bed was very comfortable, especially the sheets.
Hilary was very welcoming and we felt at home immediately. We will recommend this listing to family and friends. Staying at this home was worlds better than a hotel room and exceeded our expectations in every way.
Hilary welcomed me in Richard's absence with cheese, crackers and a room with gorgeous views. Very accommodating in so many ways, Hilary and I enjoyed visiting and sharing some of our similarities. Luxurious accommodations in a warm setting!
I am a retired high school teacher. I enjoyed outdoor activities including hiking and tennis.
My favorite travel destination is Europe. Last summer I spent two weeks traveling throughout Switzerland.
As a host, you will find me informative, likeable and charming.
My wife, Hilary, is a piano teacher from South Africa. Hilary is a world traveler and fluent in serveral languages. She makes for a most charming host.
