About Julia Fromme

I traveled to the beautiful Central Coast almost 40 years ago to escape the cold and rainy northwest, and discovered the joy of beaches and year 'round sunshine. After retiring from a 30-year career teaching kids with special needs, I bought this huge house with the idea of sharing it with the community. I host house concerts, teach meditation and recovery, have group meetings, practice Jin Shin Do bodywork, and walk the nearby trails with my rescue dog Nova.

Julia Fromme purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Julia Fromme chose San Luis Obispo

San Luis Obispo is special. This particular property is on a corner lot that looks at a park across the street and mountains behind it. The courtyard is green and peaceful with a musical water fountain. It's a nice walk around the park, and is close to stores, downtown, and the freeway. The 'Casita Wing' is perfect for privately hosting travelers who wish to visit San Luis Obispo and nearby sights.

What makes this apartment unique

The Casita Wing provides the best view of the Irish Hills nearby and gives you a clean, comfortable, peaceful, private, safe, and beautiful place to stay.

Perfect Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Julia's casita was exactly what I was looking for while visiting my hometown of SLO. It was roomy, immaculate and tastefully decorated and the bed was very comfortable. Her courtyard is lovely and I loved the sound of the water fountain during the evening. (This can be turned off if that's your preference.) Julia graciously provides coffee and snacks along with a bottle of wine from a local vineyard. I come often to SLO to visit family and friends and this will become a permanent destination for us.

Peaceful, adorable, comfortable place; nice and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Julia's Casita for 2 months while interning in the area. Julia is a wonderful hostess; she is very kind and friendly, and she was available via text/call in case I had any questions or concerns. When I arrived, she gave me a warm welcome and had made me a lovely gift basket. The Casita was clean and tidy with a pleasant and peaceful ambiance. The outside is also picturesque with a fountain, plants, and flowers. There is a nice park across the street and great hiking trails just beyond the park. The neighborhood is adorable, and there are stores and restaurants nearby. The Casita is pet friendly, so my boyfriend was able to bring his dog when visiting me. I really enjoyed my stay and would recommend the Casita to anyone looking to visit SLO!

Loved our stay at the Casita! Quiet, comfortable and conveniently located.

  • 5 of 5

Julia was the perfect hostess; kind and welcoming. Very personable, she was available as needed. We found the Casita very clean, with a lovely basket of snacks and bottle of local wine! Julia was quick to answer any questions we had (via text) and had great suggestions for local restaurants or places to visit (and hiking trails!). We are SO happy that we found her on our first of (hopefully) MANY visits to SLO. We look forward to returning to her cozy Casita!

Julia's cottage was perfect in every way. She even loaned us a dog leash we forgot to pack. Our little dog was also made to feel at home and the park across the street was icing on the cake. Thanks Julia for sharing your property with us.

Quiet Location Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

Julia is an amazing host and the location was perfect for us. My daughter is in SLO and we were two blocks away from her apartment. Wish I would have found this gem when she started school. We will be back for sure. So about our little place.... comfy bed, amazing shower, no kitchen ( we didn't need it ) microwave and fridge stocked cupboard. Julia was so thoughtful and left us a gift full of goodies which we were able to take on our Avila hike. Thank you so much for your hospitality Julia we will be back. Hugs Kathy

San Luis Obispo at it's Finest!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay with Julia was way more than we could ever have asked for. We arrived to an awesome welcome basket full of treats and goodies to get us through our weekend. The casita was clean and welcoming with AC and the best bed we've slept on. Julia took care of our every need and made sure we were comfortable. This is a great place to stay because it's totally private but also has a host available if any issues arise. Can't wait until we get to come back and see SLO again! Thanks Julia!
