San Luis Obispo is a picturesque town nestled in between rolling hills where cattle graze. Activities are plentiful with beaches, hiking, surfing, craft beer and wine tasting, shopping, spa-ing, cycling, movie theaters, golfing....something for everyone!
Located in "Uptown" SLO, you'll be in walking distance of EVERYTHING. Coffee shops, antique shops, restaurants, Cal Poly, The Mission, body spas & salons and downtown shops are all a short jaunt or you can wait at a nearby stop for the trolley to be your personal taxi around our quaint town.
This charming California Bungalow is spacious at 900 sq.ft. with a custom remodeled bath and bedroom. Bathroom has a tub and shower and is stocked with spa quality amenities. Bedroom has a handmade Cal King bed frame, comfortable mattress and all cotton bedding for the most comfort! Craftsman style cabinetry provides plenty of storage for any length stay.

A stackable washer/dryer is located in the laundry room to make you feel at home on your longer stays. Off street parking is available for a second vehicle.
Guests will find the lockbox through the gate on the "driveway side" of the house. We have a spacious gated patio in the front of the house that guest's are welcome to use. There is a back patio where the cars are parked that we prefer to keep private.
Interaction with guests:
We live here at the house so may run into you on the property however we tend to let our guests be and encourage them to feel at home during their stay. If you would like to actually visit with us, we are happy to meet you out on the patio for a nice beverage.
We live in a very urban part of SLOtown. There is a lot of pedestrian/auto activity as we are surrounded by restaurants, coffee shops, and schools. It's very conveniently located and the neighborhood is alive!
We are about a 10-15 minute walk in different directions to the downtown "core", Cal Poly, and the train station.
The trolley and bus stops are very near by.
The airport is about 10 miles away.
If you drive, please be aware that this house is nearly 100 years old and the driveway is very narrow. If you have a larger vehicle or one that is very low, you may prefer to park on the street. There is ONE parking space allowed on the premise. Any additional vehicles please find plenty of free parking on the street.

About juli platzer
My husband and I have lived in San Luis Obispo for a number of years, building our businesses here and making it our home. We enjoy renovating this 1928 bungalow that we live in and rent out the other half to visiting folks like yourself. We love this area of the Central Coast for it's simpleness, quiet scenery and magnificent coastline. For being such a small town, I am ever amazed at how many things there are to do around here!
juli platzer purchased this Bungalow in 2006
Why juli platzer chose San Luis Obispo
We fell in love with this house for many reasons... classic design, sturdy construction, location!
What makes this Bungalow unique
Being in the business of home design and construction, my husband and I saw the potential in this house. Code words for fixer upper! We have and continue to renovate it to our own liking, enhancing the craftsman/spanish style while adding the modern conveniences that make it a joy to live in. The Monterey Street House is clean, classic and comfortable for your stay here in San Luis Obispo. Again, the location can not be beat for easy walking/biking access to Cal Poly, Downtown SLO, and freeway access.

Great bungalow with a terrific location!
We had such a great stay! The bungalow is very clean, comfortable, spacious and the hosts provide all the amenities you need. Easy walk to down town and lots of restaurants.
Will definitely stay again!!
Bathroom nice. Beds comfortable. Bit of musty smell.
The bungalow was everything we hoped it would be. My sister and I loved our proximity to walking to dinner and shopping and it was such a cute cozy place to hang out. Definitely recommend for quiet girls weekend getaway.
Relaxing, Comfortable Home Away From Home
We throughly enjoyed our second stay here for Cal Poly's Parent's Weekend. The bungalow is roomy, comfortable and a great place to relax with our kids while visiting! We will definitely come back to this homey, relaxing retreat!
Comfortable and Convenient for Cal Poly Student Move-in Weekend!
What a great place to relax with our son before moving him into his new dorm at Cal Poly. So convenient to campus as well as walking distance to all the great restaurants and Thursday night's Farmers Market! Already have our reservation booked for Parent's Weekend in October, so we will be back soon!
Loved everything but the street noise
Well kept and spacious in a convenient location. The first night we had trouble falling asleep since it's on a fairly busy street. We happened to be in town during an unprecedented heat wave (104 three days in a row) so we slept much better with the a/c noise blocking the street noise (btw, the a/c worked great!). The bed and bedroom were plenty large and the living offered a day bed that we did not use (I never checked to see if the couch also pulled out). We did not cook but the kitchen seemed to offer all the amenities.
San Luis Obispo has a lot to offer for such a small town. We have a lot of visitors for the Cal Poly University that is right up the street from this rental, definitely in walking distance. Downtown SLO has one of the biggest farmer's markets in the US every Thursday night. There is a trolley pick up right across the street that will take you right into the heart of Downtown and bring you back. The mission is an active church open to the public with a small museum that is must see for California history. SLO also has a very cool Children's Museum that will entertain any little ones for hours, as well as their parents. Of course there are lots of cute boutiques and restaurants to enjoy.
We are down the road from Paso Robles wine country where there are tours galore! Please inquire about tour buses that will pick you up here and bring you back for worry free wine tasting!
We also are very close to the ocean. Avila and Pismo Beach are about a 15 minute drive on the 101 South. Morro Bay and Cayucos are equal distance from here on Hwy 1 North.
