Come stay in our spacious home in walking distance of Cal Poly (10 min) and downtown (25 min). Full of color, light, art and folk art, the house was designed in early 90's by Steven Pults. Now, with our kids gone, we're happy to share it with you.
Winter sale pricing is now in effect! You are looking at Trudy's room, which is small and sweet and has lovely afternoon light. It has its own bathroom, an exceptionally comfortable queen-sized bed (memory foam on a hybrid spring and cotton futon), a desk and a chair.
Guests can use the gardens, back deck and the pleasant ground floor living room anytime, as well as the kitchen in the morning or if we're not using it.
We ask that you respect our family's daily routines when using the space on the second floor: the kitchen at dinner time, the dining room and the back room. Feel free to make yourself at home if no one else is using the those areas.
The third floor is private.
Interaction with Guests
Tom and I love sharing our home with guests from around the world. Travelers ourselves and hosts to exchange students and SERVAS travelers for years before discovering Airbnb, there's nothing we enjoy more than a good conversation at the dining room table, on the deck, or by the fire.
We're 7 miles from the beach and an hour from Hearst Castle. Great wineries close by in Edna Valley, Paso Robles and Arroyo Grande. San Luis has amazingly good weather year around, a vital downtown, many excellent restaurants, wonderful music and arts, and the best chocolate around.
A bus stop two blocks away, about a mile from the Amtrak station. Street parking for one car, easy freeway access. Lovely walking neighborhood.
Other Things to Note
Guests say: " We had a wonderful stay with you~one of our favorite airbnbs now. It was great! It was fun and interesting to meet you and we certainly enjoyed our conversations. Your mother's room is sweet, immaculate and very comfortable. In that regard, thank you for good pillows too.
We appreciated access to your big and bright kitchen, and your conservation efforts.
We felt we had both privacy and friendship. Your home is a very nice combination of vibrant color and peaceful refuge."
Tom and I are members of SLOHosts, the group who worked together to keep short-term rentals available here in San Luis Obispo last fall. We voluntarily pay a 10% TOT (room tax) to the city (in addition to state and federal income taxes).
Please stay in close touch about your arrival time so we can be here to welcome you.
Please use water sparingly. We are in the midst of a severe drought.
Parking is restricted in our neighborhood on weekdays. If you come during the week, we have have one parking pass which we will lend you when you come (please remember to give it back!).
If you have more than one car, one will have to be left a few houses up the street at the end of the restricted area. On the weekends there are no restrictions.
Juliet's room is right below our own, so if you come in late, please keep your voices down. There is a fairly strictly enforced 10 PM noise ordinance in the city of San Luis Obispo.
You’re welcome to make yourselves at home in the living room outside the bedrooms anytime, or in the garden or the back deck. Provided we aren’t using it ourselves, feel free use the kitchen and the second floor living space too. The third floor is our private space.
There’s microwave near the refrigerator, an electric kettle near the sink, and both an espresso machine and a drip coffee maker on the counter that you can use. Coffee is in the freezer, tea in boxes and tins by the stove. Cups are hanging above the coffee machines, glasses are in the cabinet above the microwave. There’s filtered water in the fridge but the tap water is fine to drink.
Lily Bear is a rescued Chow Golden Retriever. She can be barky and will occasionally growl because she’s still a little fearful, but if you completely ignore her at first, she’ll eventually come to you. If she barks as you leave the house tell her “Bear stays” firmly and she’ll get the message. She rarely tries to get out the front door, but if she does get out, leave the door wide open and walk away from it to where she can’t see you, and she’ll come back in a few minutes.
The black cats are Olive and Alice. They live upstairs. It’s fine to let them in the front door so they can scoot up the stairs before Bear sees them.
Leave the lights on in the entry hall when you go to bed. Someone will turn them off.
This adorable couple owns a magical chocolate store in the middle of SLO. What else do you need to know? The house is great, they're great, we recommend this full-heartedly!
It was a beautiful place. It was a very clean and comfortable stay. Highly recommended!
A brief and delightful stay. My boyfriend and I came to SLO for a friend's wedding and stayed with Eve and her husband Tom for two nights. We had a wonderful time talking with Eve and Tom over tea and coffee in the morning. They are wonderfully unique and warm people. Our room was clean and cozy and with its en suite bathroom offered us just enough privacy. I'm so glad we opted for this over one of the hotels in the area. Creature comforts go a long way. Eve and Tom, thank you for your gracious hospitality!
Very pleasant stay with Eve, Tom and super cute Lilly Bear. The house is stunning. The room is cosy, comfortable and very homey with a massive ensuite bathroom. I had a bad headache and Eve was very kind to offer me some pain killers. SLO is a beautiful colllege town. Will no doubt recommend Eve's place to anyone looking to visit SLO on the drive down, especially to my foodie friends (because Tom is a head chef and the kitchen is something!).
My stay in Trudy's room was exquisite! From chocolate at my pillow to French press coffee in the morning, my stay was amazing. Not to mention the bed was so cozy and I swear the sleep I had was so deep and restful! I really would like to stay here whenever I visit SLO again!! Thank you Eve and Tom!
Our parents and we had a great time at Eve and Tom's house, they are great hosts, very helpful. Recommend to everyone
Eve and Tom are great hosts. Their decorations are wonderful, the bed is very comfortable. Love the pinned map. Can't wait to be back.
