About the owner: I am an avid world traveler which is my passion. When not traveling, I enjoy the 'SLO' life and spend my time with hobbies like cooking, designing, and hiking the surrounding hills. I am happy to be of assistance if needed and/or be your concierge.
Why the Owner Chose San Luis Obispo: I chose this home because of its sunny rooms and ideal location to walking downtown and nearby outdoor activities and beaches. I love being able to look out and see San Luis Mtn. from the front porch swing. The weather is almost always perfect and there is always something fun to do in this area.
The Unique Benefits at this House: All within walking distance, there are great restaurants, tapas and coffee bars, boutiques, Farmers' Market (Thursdays), summer concerts in Mission Plaza and movie houses (The Palm Theater shows foreign films!). But if you venture out a little further, we have incredible day trips such as: Morro Bay for whale watching and other sea life, Big Sur for world class vistas, Avila Beach for surfing and swimming and sunbathing. Even Santa Barbara is just only an hour and a half away! But the best part of this house is coming back from a great outing and relaxing with friends or family in the cheerful, cozy atmosphere, or waking to the sound of the Mission chimes downtown.
