There is an aviary of lovebirds and budgies outside (attached to the main house). They're not very loud but you can hear them if you're sitting on the deck.

There are 2 little dogs on the property. They will not be loose in the yard but you may hear them at some point. They're very sweet and they don't bark a lot but just a heads up. They are not in the house that is available.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Carrie was really nice and incredibly helpful with lots of great suggestions about where to go and what to do in the area. I was very grateful to have such a cozy and comfortable spot to come home to after my day's adventures. It was so conveniently located-a quick walk to downtown and only a few blocks from Hwy 101. It was exactly what I needed for this trip and I would definitely recommend it and would stay here again in a heartbeat.

  • Carrie's place was so cute - we had an awesome time! It was a perfect short walk to the center of town and had everything we could have hoped for and more: adorable fireplace inside, beautiful big terrace outside to relax and enjoy the fresh air, and a ton of great recommendations. Carrie was super easy to communicate with and even welcomed us with a plate of cookies (which my boyfriend promptly ate all of.) Needless to say even the cookies were good. Very much recommend!

    April 2014
  • This was a great place to stay! The view was beautiful, the bed was very cozy, and it had great ambiance. Carrie had a wonderful selection of coffees and teas, which was a real treat. She was very quick to respond to my messages and kept in good communication.

    She even left us some sugar cookies and a nice note!

    Overall, it was an ideal spot: great price, close to downtown, yet quiet and peaceful. If I come back to the area, I would definitely choose this studio.

    April 2014
  • The apartment was beautiful and easy to find. Very helpful folded of local places and numbers; the bed was very comfortable and four Chocolate cookies in the apartment were a nice touch!

    April 2014
  • We spent a great month in Carrie's Charming Studio and absolutely loved it. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful view of the hills from the balcony, cooked wonderful meals in the well appointed kitchen, and relaxed between jaunts to the local attractions (wineries, thursday farmer's market, fantastic restaurants and shopping). The location is ideal--on a quiet street just a quick walk to downtown SLO. Carrie is a generous host who was incredibly responsive and helpful.

  • I had an awesome 2 week vacation and this lovely little studio was just perfect! I was able to cook in the kitchen some nights or take a stroll downtown the other nights. Nice and close to shops and restaurants. The pictures show the studio just as it is. Quiet and comfortable, I sat on the deck every morning with a cup of tea as I listened to the birds and fountains in the sun. Carrie was accommodating and always made sure everything was going well and I had what I needed. I didn't get to meet Carrie but did meet her mom who was a sweetheart and let me borrow a book during my stay! I would definitely recommend this beautiful little studio to anyone. And of course when I come back to visit, I'll be booking it again, no question about it!

    March 2014
  • We had an excellent visit. A lovely studio that's an excellent place to stay for visiting SLO. Walking distance to everything. Will definitely be coming back again.

  • Janek & I had such an amazing NYE here! We felt so spoiled as we relaxed in this lovely studio apt-- cooked a nice dinner for ourselves, sat by the cozy fire, watched the ball drop, and enjoyed some star gazing from the balcony. All in all, the place was perfect-- exactly what we were looking for. Carrie & her mom were true hosts and they made the start of our 2014 memorable one. Would love to come back here and stay again! We would recommend it to anyone & plan on doing so to friends visiting the area!

    January 2014
  • Carrie's place was absolutely FABULOUS! Everything about the place has impeccable flair. The queen bed is sumptuous! All amenities are top-notch. The location is convenient. Carrie has prepared a book that tells everything about the place and the area – so helpful! She was very thoughtful and had some homemade cookies and gorgeous flowers out for our arrival. Without question, we would stay at her place again in a heartbeat.

    January 2014
  • Very cozy, lots of light, on an amazing property. Full of great architectural details. Our short, but extremely comfortable stay is one that I'd recommend to anyone.

    I wish we would have stayed a few additional nights...

I grew up in San Luis Obispo, California. I love the Central Coast and everything it has to offer. I love the outdoors and exploring the coast with my little dog Callie.
