Enjoy use of 2 bedrooms (each with a double bed) and 1 bathroom. Access also to kitchen, living room (with fireplace) and backyard (with bbq and table/chairs). Don't forget there is also a hot tub to relax in after a days' activities! We, the owners, welcome you into our home - we may or may not be home during your stay. If we are in residence, we will occupy what we call the 'nest' (upstairs master bedroom) and promise to not impose upon your time here (unless it is to perhaps share a glass of wine!) :)
We are located close to a shopping center, the airport and the train station. Eight wineries are within a bike ride or 5 minute drive from our house. There is a stunning hill to hike nearby and various other hikes within SLO environs. We are 10 minutes from several incredible beaches and seaside towns. Downtown SLO and the Mission, the creek through town, quaint shops and a variety of bars and restaurants are less than 5 minutes away.
Whether you are just needing a roof over your head or access to accommodation that feels 'more like home' than a hotel room... this is the place for you!
Guests are encouraged to make use of the entire downstairs - kitchen, living room, and back yard (including hot tub). A washer and dryer is also available at no additional charge. Our philosophy is to provide our guests with a comfortable and enjoyable stay... we may make use of the kitchen, but not so as to interfere with use by our guests. :)
We enjoy meeting and chatting with our guests over a cup of coffee in the morning or a cocktail at days end. Depending on our schedule and the wishes of our guests, we have been known to join for wine tasting, a tour of the area, dinner, etc. We pretty much take it as it comes! :)
We live in a quiet residential area with a fantastic park across the street. Step out our door and the area provides for bike rides, runs, and hikes.
A bus stop is just a block away. The train station is a 5 minute drive and the airport is about 4 blocks from the house (we are talking a small and quaint airport so one seldom is aware just how close the airport is).
Awesome place!!! We weren't there long, but we had a chance to take a dip in the hot tub with a glass of wine and had a good night's sleep on comfy beds after a great dinner in downtown SLO (per Robin's recommendation). Thanks Robin and Doug!
We were very nervous about our stay having never done this before. Robin and Doug made things very easy for us! We will have to return one day as we invited Doug to learn how and to play euchre with us one evening. He may need another lesson!
Robin and Doug were super hospitable for our weekend getaway! Their place is very comfy and clean, and their house is quaint and inviting. Quiet neighborhood, decent access to downtown area, and overall great place to stay. Didn't get to try out the jacuzzi; maybe next time! :)
We very much enjoyed our stay with Doug and Robin. They were great hosts and made us feel very welcome. The house made a great base to explore the SLO area.
We enjoyed our time with Doug and Robin tremendously and look forward to staying with them again. Our hosts were extremely easy going and accommodating - a very friendly couple (with many stories to share). We found their house to be warm and inviting and located in a beautiful community 7 minutes (drive) away from downtown. Our rooms were tidy and comfortable.
Thanks, Doug and Robin!
I live just outside San Luis Obispo and booked these rooms so that my best friend and i could enjoy a stay-cation. She lives in the Sierra Foothills and had never been to our fair city before. She was NOT disappointed! The home is in a lovely, quiet neighborhood and the hosts were fantastic! We especially appreciated the wine glass and chocolate placed on the beds! And the beds--SO soft and comfortable. The hosts thought of everything and made our stay so easy. We will be repeat visitors to Robin and Doug's for sure. What a great spot for a quick girls' weekend:)
Robin and Doug Perrin were amazing hosts. Truly warm individuals - they actually made it feel like we were visiting with long time friends. My husband and I took his parents with us to attend a family reunion and they, being in their late 80's, were hesitant to stay in a "strangers' house." Needless to say, they now consider Robin and Doug to be friends, as do we. We didn't really have a chance to enjoy the wonderful, warm, cozy house and amenities as we were at the reunion all three days... but the house is so inviting, and they are incredible hosts. We look forward to staying there again in the future, and to even going wine-tasting and spending time with Robin and Doug. Highly recommend staying here if you want to enjoy the beauty of San Luis Obispo and the Central Coast in a comfortable, beautiful home and with amazing people.
Doug and Robin were perfect hosts. Hubby, I and our dog, had the entire first floor including backyard. Hubby enjoyed the large screen tv. We enjoyed barbequeing and eating outsided and soaking in the hot tub. House has everything you need. Just like home. The neighborhood is beautiful and it's great to walk and jog around. There is a park (with basketball and tennis courts) across the house which made it convenient for our dog. Home is close to the freeway and supermarket. Easy access to Hwy 1 North or South. Highly recommend the home.
Robin and Doug are very kind hosts. The entire house has a warm, lively feel, and it is spotless throughout. We had lots of space (the first floor of the house), and use of the hot tub and their washer and dryer. The beds are comfortable, wi fi was reliable, and there is a TV in the living room and another in one bedroom. The back yard is well kept, and has fruit trees (we had a sample).
The location works well for getting to the center of town or Cal Poly. There is a park across the street, and a shopping center with a Vons and a few eateries about half a mile away.
Staying at Robin and Doug's place was great. Very clean and organized, and an overall great experience. The beds were comfortable, and the street was very quiet, yet not too far from downtown SLO. I'd be very happy to stay here again in the future.
