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
  • This studio plus outdoor seating area was the ideal place for us to land for our two nights in San Luis Obispo. On our arrival, Carrie was very helpful in getting us oriented to the available appliances, lights, and TV remotes. It was a quiet, lovely place to come back to from our forays into and around SLO for those days. We thoroughly enjoyed cooking and relaxing indoors and out. The fountain in the courtyard was a nice background sound. We would definitely return to enjoy Carrie's hospitality again.

  • Wow is all I can say about my experience staying at Carrie's place. It was beautifully decorated and fully stocked with everything you may need. The courtyard was peaceful and a wonderful place to unwind and enjoy the beautiful weather. I would definitely recommend staying there and I plan on staying there again during my next staycation. Thanks for the wonderful hospitality!!

    April 2014
  • We stayed in Carrie's lovely studio while we were in town for a wedding and it could not have been lovelier! Great location, super comfy bed and all the amenities we needed for a few days. Would absolutely stay here again next time we're in SLO!

  • We had a fantastic experience staying at Carrie's place. It is a cozy studio, and the access to the courtyard opens things up nicely. Carrie and her parents were very responsive to us, and we always felt welcome and appreciated their attention. The location is great, with easy walking access to downtown and Madonna Mountain. We did not have a car, but we rented bikes from Carrie and that gave us good access to most areas of SLO. We definitely hope to back!

  • This studio was perfect! My partner and I spent two nights here during the holidays and we couldn't ask for a more welcoming space, or a more hospitable host. The bed was large and comfortable, the kitchen was stocked with all the basics and more, the fireplace was cozy, and the courtyard was dreamy. It was also in pristine condition- cleanliness is a big must for me and I was impressed by the care with which the space is maintained. The location is also a big draw. It's a short walk from downtown SLO so there are lots of restaurants, bars, shops and history to take in. Can't wait to stay here again!

  • Let's talk about the bed. I mean, yes, the place is super cute, super clean, and super quiet. It's a nice, easy walk to shopping and food (especially the ice cream sandwich shop). But really, it's all about the bed. If you lie down, be prepared with drinks and a snack, because no one will find you for hours. So comfortable. Amazing. Can't say it enough.

    December 2013
  • This is a great place to stay for anyone visiting SLO. The unit was immaculate and well apportioned. It is also a 5 minute walk to the heart of downtown. The hosts were very accommodating, allowing us to check in a bit early and keeping us up to date on the details of our stay. They also checked in periodically to make sure all was well. I really cannot say enough nice things about the whole of the experience. Do yourself a favor, and end your search for a place here.

  • Nothing like a cozy stop in San Luis Obispo! Thanks for all your help Carrie, we had a great time!

    December 2013
  • Carrie's studio casita is now one of my favorite Airbnb spots. It's a small, wonderful space with a fantastic courtyard complete with fountains. Carrie's instructions were detailed and everything was as described. Hoping to come back soon!

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.
