About Rhianna Henderson

The owners are San Luis Obispo locals that enjoy the Central Coast life style. They have a one year old, so the house is very kid friendly. They travel frequently during the summer/fall, so the house is available most weekends and holidays.

Rhianna Henderson purchased this house in 2012

Why Rhianna Henderson chose San Luis Obispo

The house is an easy drive to Cal Poly and downtown SLO and is conveniently located near shopping and hiking. Our home is part of a wonderful neighborhood with a city park next door. The Irish Hills open space is less than 100 yards from our house, which makes it easy to go for short or long hikes. We use the Irish Hills for weekend trail running and mountain biking all year long.

A few blocks away we have several nice retail stores such as Whole Foods and Costco.

Family Home

  • 3 of 5

This is a very beautiful. clean family home. I want to stress family home. There are family pictures everywhere on the fire place mantel, hanging on the walls and even on their tv as their screen saver. It felt like we were intruding on their family home. Also, they do not have TV. Yes, they have a monitor that you can use if you can figure out their Netflix and Apple TV. I do not have apple tv account so we could not use that. I could not figure out how to use their Netflix so my son had to come over and show us how to use it. We could not watch the news or random television because they do not have cable. They did not lay things out for us so we didn't have to dig around to find what we needed. Specifically coffee, coffee filters, bottle openers, wine and beer. We had to buy coffee. Thye did lay out towels in the hallway and at the end of our stay we realized there were kitchen towels laid out in the hallway too. The backyard and spa are very nicely decorated and clean however the neighbor stays up most of the night and his window looks down onto the spa. We did not use the spa. Something was wrong with the Wifi the first night and I contacted her asking for help and she did not get back to me until the next day. Overall it's a beautiful, clean home with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, smells good, has a good location and we felt safe. We paid a premium price and we expected more than we received.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Cindy! I appreciate the feedback on the location of key kitchen/pantry items. I will look into placing certain items in more obvious places. As per our listing description, this is our primary home (hence the family pictures) and we do not have cable (though we have Netflix and Apple TV). We try to keep our listing description as accurate/transparent as possible, so I apologize if this was unexpected. Thank you for taking wonderful care of our home, and I hope you had a lovely time visiting with family!

SLO stay

  • 4 of 5

The home is in a great location as you can hike or take small children to park. The house had ants in kitchen which was bothersome, the bath towels could be updated. The back yard was a great place to gather so overall it is a comfortable modern home as advertised. The owners also were available for any concerns.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Rhianna and Eric's beautiful home for a long weekend while we visited our daughter who attends school in SLO. This home exceeded our expectations! We enjoyed the spacious and inviting rooms, comfortable furniture, and neighborhood (park across the street and hiking nearby). The kitchen and family room allowed us to cook and relax. The bedrooms and bathrooms were large and comfortable. Rhianna provided us with everything we needed to make our stay feel like home! We explored the town, Edna Valley, and beaches, and were grateful to have a home to return to after our full days. We will keep our fingers crossed that this home is available during our next visit to SLO!

Wonderful time in SLO

  • 5 of 5

We have spend time in SLO before and were super excited go re-visit. The house was wonderful and comfortable to stay in. We were lucky to have a perfect weather weekend for winter.

The whole house was immaculate when we arrived. The host left out some snack and wine for us. The house was larger than we expected. The master bedroom had plenty of space, the King mattress was soft, and the deep bath tub was relaxing for my wife. We really enjoyed the backyard at night, we used the hot tub under the stars.

I would love to stay at this house again.

Convenient and Spacious

  • 5 of 5

Having lived in SLO for 7 years in my Cal Poly days, I was familiar with the location of this property, though the area is significantly more developed than it was 20 years ago. The house is located minutes from the 101 so easy access to the beaches to the south, Morro Bay and San Simeon to the north along the coast, and a quick jaunt to downtown SLO. Many shopping amenities are within walking distance from the home if desired. The house itself is more spacious than the photos portray. We stayed as two couples with three small children and it was easy. Well maintained, great kitchen, fabulous master bath with soaking tub. Will stay again!

Lovely getaway with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here! The home was clean and comfortable, and had everything we needed for a wonderful weekend.

The location is perfect - in a nice neighborhood only a few minutes away from trails/hiking with views of SLO, shopping and amenities within walking distance, and a short drive downtown or out to the coast.

Thank you for a cozy home base for the long weekend!
