"We found this cottage on VRBO, since all of the hotels in San Luis Obispo were booked for the weekend, and we were coming into town for a wedding.. I'm glad we found it - so much nicer than a hotel! An awesome place to stay and get away from it all... Very quiet and secluded, but close to area beaches and wineries. I would definitely like to stay there again when we come back to the area.."

"I took my dance team to San Luis Obispo for the weekend and we stayed in the Windmill House! It was a gorgeous, comfortable, cozy spot. The home was equipped with everything we could think of!
I have only one piece of advice to share - check your keys before leaving/splitting up your group! My key worked (I checked it before leaving), but one of my dancers ended up needing to wait at the house with her husband at 1AM until my carpool got back from SLO. I brought the issue up with the owner (the next morning) and she was very prompt at providing a solution. It was a slight hiccup and is now just a funny story!
The commute to SLO wasn't very long - and the drive over the Grade is beautiful in and of itself. We will definitely be back to the house next time we have dancing to do in SLO! Since I was teaching all weekend, I was really only at the house for pit stops in between commitments. Next time, I would love to be able to enjoy the house and the whole area more. We did not get to try either, but we know that wine tasting and zip lining are nearby. It's on our team to-do list for our next trip!
This was kind of a last minute reservation for us, so we definitely lucked out. I have never rented a house like this before, and I TOTALLY prefer it to renting rooms in a hotel. The whole experience was amazing. In a hotel, we would not have been as comfortable as we were, and we would have paid A LOT more.
The Windmill House. Yes yes YES!"

"Wonderful cosy stay for our family of four. A short Walk to downtown, Thursday night farmers market, neighborhood Thai restaurant and coffee shop. We were made to feel at home by the owner and given excellent restaurant and activity suggestions. The kids enjoyed the front porch swing and game of horseshoes in the front yard. My wife and I enjoyed the outdoor courtyard, kitchen and fireplace. We can't wait to visit again."
