Large1970s era house with plenty of room for extended family or friends in beautiful San Luis Obispo, near the Cal Poly campus.

The space

Welcome to our reunion house. We grew up here and keep the house so we can meet up in San Luis Obispo with our families and friends. We love our hometown and the whole Central Coast. We think you'll agree with us that this house and area are great for a vacation with extended family or friends.

The house has five good sized bedrooms with beds and bedding for 10, plus folding mattresses and air beds for more. There is a well equipped kitchen which opens to a spacious family and dining room with room for a crowd. Just outside is a large private patio. Summer nights in San Luis Obispo are usually great for barbecuing and sitting outside. Maybe your kids will enjoy evenings running around the front yard or playing Frisbee in the empty street like we did growing up. The house was built in the 1940s by a cooperative group of Cal Poly professors, then remodeled in the 1970s. We've kept some of the 1970s vintage decor as a campy tribute to the era of our childhoods.

Located adjacent to Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, it's easy to get to all of San Luis Obispo county's attractions. The Cal Poly campus itself, quieter in the summer, is fun to explore. Climb to the P on the hill above the campus for wonderful views or stroll around the agricultural area and maybe see baby pigs. San Luis Obispo's historic downtown, full of great restaurants and shops, is a mile away and features the Thursday Night Downtown Farmers Market, great for SLO's famous ribs, music and people watching in a beautiful setting. On summer Fridays, there are often free concerts in Mission Plaza.

All of the area's great beaches are easy to get to, usually in 15 minutes or less. Our favorite, Avila Beach, is a 12 minute drive or an 11 mile bike ride. (John is an avid biker and can give you info on riding in the area.) Morro Bay is good for the usual sights and yummy fish, but also great kayaking and bird and otter watching. Paso Robles and Edna Valley wine regions are within a half hour drive. San Luis Obispo county is great for so many adventures. Take a look at some of the books we have in the house for hikes, local attractions, and things to do with kids.

Or just stay in! There is a collection of family games plus wi-fi and internet access. There's a supermarket a few blocks away.

House Rules

Thanks for coming! Have fun!
But please, no smoking.
Please lock the doors when you go out.

Unless, you've cleared it with us ahead of time, check in is 4 pm and check out is noon.

In the kitchen, feel free to use the coffee, pancake mix, condiments and spices, but it would be great if you could let us know if anything needs refilling before the next guest.

Other than bedding and towels, we do ask that you leave the place as clean as you found it. If we need to hire cleaners for more than linens, touching up and bathroom cleaning, we will need to deduct the cost from the security deposit.

At the end of your stay, please leave beds unmade if you used them and leave used towels on the bathroom floors. Please close all windows, lock the door and don't forget to return the key to the lock box.

We hope you have a great time in San Luis Obispo!

Pam was easy to get in touch with when I had a quick question. The house was perfect and even had extra ice cream in the freezer! Great experience renting this home!

While attending our son's wedding, my husband and I and several members of our family stayed at Pam's wonderful house. It was close to our wedding venues as well as stores, beaches and parks. The house is very well-suited for a family to be together. The kitchen has everything you need and there is much bedroom space. We found Pam to be very accommodating and responsive to our needs. We thank her for sharing her home and would highly recommend it to others who would be visiting San Luis Obispo.

The house was perfect for our group. Had a group of 9 ladies who all went to Cal Poly. Location was amazingly close to campus, house was clean and spacious, and had all the essentials in the kitchen.

Pam was great. The house was perfect. The decor etc was perhaps a little dated, but Pam was very upfront about that. It had a cottage feel to it, which is what we were used to and expecting when we rented her lovely home.

This house was perfect for our girls' reunion weekend! It had everything we needed, including all kitchen supplies, towels, and bedding, and it was very clean. Pam was really easy to communicate with and made us feel welcome. I would definitely stay here again!

Our stay was FANTASTIC! The neighborhood was quiet and the perfect distance from beaches, groceries, shopping, and everything fun. Pam was great. She provided us with prompt responses to questions and provided a very comfortable and homey place to vacation. Such a darling 1940's home with lots of charm and comfortable beds. Thanks so much!

The house was clean, comfortable and spacious. It was the perfect setting for a mini-family reunion and base of operations for my daughter's wedding. It was such a pleasant site for this purpose, that I half jokingly suggested to the bride that we should all return every year for her anniversary! There was plenty of room for hanging dresses, suits and all the stuff that we needed to carry with us for the ceremony (which was held just north of SLO at Santa Margarita Ranch). When I booked the house, I was a tiny bit concerned about being too close to campus and student housing. But the neighborhood was surprisingly quiet with only brief party noise one night that did not keep us awake. The wedding was Friday evening, so we had the rest of the weekend to hang out at the house and visit. Extended family and friends staying at nearby hotels arrived in waves throughout the next day. Some gathered in the house, but mostly we used the big porch area outside - the weather was great! Lots of funky outdoor furniture surrounded by drought tolerant succulents. We even used the tired looking retro (but functional) BBQ for a big meal on Saturday. The kitchen was well equipped with all the items we needed for cooking and eating. All the adults, and adult kids enjoyed playing cards and vintage board games that are available for use. The large living area with comfy leather recliners and couches accommodated the whole family and then some. If there was a TV, we never even considered turning it on. There was just too much fun to be had being together(URL HIDDEN) All in all it was a very pleasurable experience. Thank you Pam for making your home available to us - there is definitely a good vibe there, and I am serious about going back for the anniversary next summer - with or without the bride and groom! Best regards, CC

I'm a San Luis Obispo native, now transplanted to the San Francisco Bay area. My brother and I still own the house we grew up in and visit San Luis every summer with our families and friends. Nothing beats a week in SLO, hanging out, playing games (Scrabble and Settlers of Catan are favorites), crafting with my niece, bodysurfing at Avila Beach, going to the farmers market and coming home and cooking up the loot, breaking open a summer ripe watermelon with seeds, and, oh yeah, sharing the kitchen clean-up!
