Rosh's house was exactly as described! She was such a gracious host- so happy to tune us into the fun spots in San Luis Obispo & a joy to hang out with.
Rosh is a wonderful host! She went way beyond all expectations taking care of me, and was a joy to visit with, too. She has a very nice home, and the room with connected bath is large and comfortable. This is a great place to stay to explore the fabulous wine country and is close to the beach.
She contacted me the day I was to arrive and invited me to text her when I was close. When I got there I already had a key to the front door and let myself in. Rosh was there to greet me and show me around. II had to turn around and leave right away. I saw her a day or so later though she had been there most of the time I was. Clean house, good accommodations clear understanding of the rules. Coffee was available for me to make.
Rosh is a very welcoming host and thorough with directions and rules.
Although I made the booking, it was my friends who stayed with her but I saw how she welcomed them and how she had a lovely breakfast every morning on the table for them. Her lovely home is exactly as she describes in the listing (or better) very clean and charming with stunning views of the hills in the area and close to downtown. My friends said that everything was great with the bed and bathroom. It was wonderful meeting you Rosh. Laura
We have been at Rosh's place this last weekend. We definitely recommend it . Location is great and Rosh is an awesome host. We arrived later than scheduled on Friday but she was waiting for us with a warm welcome. Next morning she prepared a really cool breakfast for us . If you plan to visit San Luis Obispo and surroundings this the place to go.
We absolutely loved our stay at Rosh's home! One of the best parts about this place is that it is within walking distance to downtown SLO, which is such a fun, thriving area with tons of restaurants and shops. The bed wasn't the most comfortable, but that's okay. Rosh graciously provided breakfast fixings like toast, cereal, and coffee which was awesome.
Hi Ben, I don't seem to have access to your phone number any more, I would have liked to phone you. You left a purple towel hanging in the room, I guess it is yours. What should I do with it? Also I am still concerned about the bed. I had a guest in last night and I asked her if she was comfortable, she said the bed and pillows were fine but she heard the train. I am of course really worried that the remark about the bed on the public profile will negatively affect my attractiveness to guests. I would think twice about a place if a review said the bed was not comfortable. Even if I replace the mattress I will still have that review. So any help you can give me about why it was not comfortable would help a lot. Thanks.
