About Marti Brand

25 years ago I drove through San Luis Obispo on my way to residency from Seattle to southern California I thought it was the most unspoiled beautiful place I had ever seen. Fortunately I was able to move here and can share it with you now.The weather is as perfect as the people are friendly.There is no smog or traffic.Come and enjoy California as it used to be 50 years ago.

Marti Brand purchased this house in 2013

Why Marti Brand chose San Luis Obispo

8 blocks to downtown SLO but very quiet. A large backyard with a protected oak and fenced in yard.Perfect for outdoor dining and dogs!

What makes this house unique

A historic craftsman syle home with unique touches,a claw foot tub,a front porch to sit on and meet the local folks. It is the SLO life.

Close to town but quiet

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for the month of July and loved being able to walk to town for dinner and walk home afterwards. Everything is close by and the High Street Deli was great which is right down the street. Has everything you need for an easy vacation.

The owners are great to work with and so lovely. We are thinking of moving to San Luis Obispo in the future, loved Avila Beach 13 minutes away from the house. I don't know who liked the beach more us or our dog. Had a great time.

Another Great Experience on Price Street

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this cozy bungalow. Everything we remembered it to be ... great location in SLO, warm and welcoming, well-appointed with everything we needed, dog-friendly, and Marti the owner very friendly and helpful! After enjoying all of the outdoor activities that SLO and surrounding areas have to offer, it was always nice to return to Price Street!

A Charming SLO Cottage

  • 4 of 5

My husband, dog, and I stayed for 10 days in Oct. 2014 and this house fit us and our needs perfectly. Marti was great and provided a smooth and welcoming experience. The house had everything we needed from fast Wi-Fi to a well stocked kitchen and comfy rooms. I was able to work and play and relax. The front porch chairs provided us with cool evenings and wine, watching the neighbors go by. Plus the fenced yard gave our pup a safe place to romp. If you're visiting SLO and need a homey spot to stay this a great spot.

Perfect place to stay in SLO! Cozy cottage in great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our little Maltese dog stayed for five days this past July and had a wonderful time. The house was very comfortable with a fabulous outdoor patio and barbeque area. We loved the neighborhood and location to downtown and local beaches. We were able to bike ride around SLO and hit the beach every day!

We were in SLO to attend a wedding and regretted not booking through the weekend. We were far more comfortable in this house than at the 4 star hotel we stayed at for the wedding!

The owner quickly responded to all our questions prior to booking and was very friendly upon our arrival.

Thanks so much for a wonderful vacation!

Fantastic Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the house. It is cute little old Victorian house with lots of character. It was close to downtown. We walked to Thursday night market and downtown for breakfast multiple times. Our dog loved it too. The neighborhood is nice a quiet. Beds were so comfortable. The owner is fantastic. She made sure that everything went well and gave us some great recommendations. We will definitely be coming back to this property again.

if you have kids at Cal Poly, it is a great place to be. If you love SLO, you will love this location.
