Property description

Special May 30+% off - Ask for special deals! The pool is warming up, and our new pool-slide is waiting just for you and the "kid(s) in you";-) The SLOStudioLoft is just 4-5 minutes from downtown San Luis Obispo, California, half-way between San Francisco to the north, and Los Angeles to the south. We are at the southern tip of the world-famous Big Sur Coastline, with Carmel-by-the-Sea about three hours to the north, and Santa Barbara 90 minutes south. The StudioLoft is surrounded by trees in a quiet residential neighborhood with a newly renovated swimming pool and travertine patio. There is a grass lined seasonal creek in the rear of the property under sycamore and pepper trees. When you arrive you will be greeted with a complimentary bottle of chardonnay or cold beer in the fridge. We provide food for your breakfast (often including homemade coffee cake) and you can 'french press' freshly ground SLO-roasted coffee in the morning to start your day off right! Our private StudioLoft has been recently renovated providing you, our guest, all the amenities you may need to enjoy an intimate dining experience, both indoors, and on the natural stone patio by the pool. The StudioLoft is equipped with a kitchenette, bar, dining area, computer, flat screen satellite TV, and beautiful piano. The kitchenette (see photos) includes a 2-burner gas stove, mini fridge, counter-top convection oven, and a microwave. It is well stocked with everything you need to cook a meal including dishes, glassware, silverware, pots and pans, bowls, and cooking utensils. The loft above (w/ ladder access) sleeps two in a double-size bed (with 4' memory foam), and down below, the couch converts to a queen size bed (also with 4' memory foam) and sleeps 2 more comfortably (see photos). Our outdoor propane grill is available for pool-side, summer-time, or any-time BBQ's. The SLO bed tax is 10% and isn't included with HomeAway's price.

***We have a Queen Aerobed with linen, pillows,comforters and towels available for extra guests to accommodate a cozy crowd of 6, if you like closeness!*** or a thick queen-sized sleeping pad.

The new designed and upgraded bathroom, shower, and laundry room are accessed by a doorway for your private use. (We sometimes share the laundry, accessed by an outer door for your privacy.) Our travertine stone patio winds around the pool and opens out through a gated lawn-banked seasonal creek. All outdoor area is available to you during your stay. The friendly family golden retriever Sadie may want to play with you, but just close the blinds. She'll get the hint.

Guest Access

The StudioLoft is easily accessed through a redwood gate on the right side of the private residence driveway, along a well-lit pathway to your separate entrance facing the pool (see photos). Our guests enjoy the sun-warmed pool in the summer (May-October), and also enjoy sunbathing on the patio lounge furniture. The gated and fenced creek-side lawn area is a safe place for your non-barking dog to roam. Laundry facilities available if absolutely needed- please be conscious of our SLO water shortage and California drought. We are available to make your stay as comfortable as possible; please, let us know in advance if you have any special requests.

Ryan and family.

Interaction with Guests

We respect that you may desire privacy during your stay, and therefore we will provide you with a 'pre-visit' email list of 'what-to-do' and 'where-to-go' in SLO that may be helpful in planning your activities and making reservations as desired. When you arrive you'll find a 'Concierge' booklet describing some of our favorite Bars, Beaches, Restaurants, Galleries and Wineries, and Trips and Trails, as a resource for your convenience during your stay, including brochures to review, along with a section for your comments for future guests!

The Neighborhood

Our quiet neighborhood is on a cul-de-sac, therefore minimal car traffic is rarely heard. In the mornings you can hear the birds singing in the trees surrounding the property. Our neighbors are out walking their pets at all hours, and there is never a concern for safety. This is an exceptionally quiet, secluded, upscale residential neighborhood including young families with children, as well as older, retired couples who built their own homes 30+ years ago.

Getting around

We're near Southwood Drive and Johnson Avenue. Our local city bus transit is a 3 minute walk 2 blocks to the corner #1 Bus Stop- SLO City Transit, which takes you to the Downtown City Center, approximately a 10 minute bus-ride, where transfers are available by bus to the Amtrak Station, all over SLO, Cal Poly, and San Luis Obispo County, including Hearst Castle if desired. SLO Airport is a 7 minute Cab Ride. Transportation available online:
San Luis Obispo Regional Transit Authority
Amtrak Coast Starlight - Seattle - Los Angeles

Pacific Coast Surfliner San Luis Obispo - Santa Barbara - Los Angeles - San Diego

Other Things to Note

San Luis Obispo charges a 10% TOT (room tax) and we will collect that amount from you when you arrive. We have recently spent a lot of love-filled energy and time remodeling and renovating our home to improve the comfort and beauty we have come to enjoy. We hope you will come visit and relax here in SLO for a day or more so that you too can appreciate some of the beauty that surrounds us here on the Central Coast: Beaches, hiking trails, biking trails, downtown boutique shopping, wine-tasting, music festivals, film festivals, and so much more! Our rates are generally lower in the winter and spring, and as the summer sun warms our new pool, we hope you'll enjoy using it during your stay! So please enjoy swimming in front of your own secluded Studio Loft May through October. We will provide simple instructions on removing the Solar Blanket before swimming. (Grab two corners, and pull off of the pool, @ 5 feet at a time onto the deck, fan-folding it on the deck near the deep-end.) Have fun, but please, keep your pets out of the pool for their safety. And remember- NO LIFEGUARD ON DUTY, unless, of course you are one!

We do NOT allow smokers inside our home, and greatly appreciate your compliance with this request. Again, the local tax is 10% of rental fee before Fees. This all be collected in cash with receipt given upon your arrival. General courtesy is the 'unwritten rule,' as is pretty much true for anytime our lives impact others. We would love to meet your pup, if you decide to bring her along with you, but please keep pets off of the furniture, or use our large 'Pet Protector' sheet to cover the couch upon your arrival to the Studio Loft. *There is a one-time $25 cleaning fee for pets. When booking, please include your pet as an extra guest as well ($15/night) or pay upon arrival (honor system- and we trust you).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: We like to travel, and explore new adventures. Meeting new people during their travels through San Luis Obispo, and sharing their travel stories is really fun! We're happy to be able to share the 'SLOStudio Loft experience' with others along their journey up or down the California Coast.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
The SLOStudioLoft is a unique accommodation that makes great use of the space. The high ceilings add to the feeling of 'open-air' and vast spaciousness, yet when you're up on the loft, you get a sense of privacy from the living area below, without feeling isolated. A great place to share with friends and family: Reunions, anniversaries, birthdays, and any reason for a holiday celebration,the SLO Studio Loft is a perfect landing spot along your journey. Breakfast comes included, so you don't have to rush off in the morning. Great sunsets on the travertine patio with the beautiful pool in the foreground, and large sycamores along the grass-lined seasonal creek in the background offer some breathtaking sunsets right in front of the Studio Loft!
