About Leslie A. McKinley
Now that my kids are grown, I would love to share my home with you. We are all set up for grandchildren, or for adults! While you are here, I can go and have some fun in this great 1956 Ford Thunderbird...
Why Leslie A. McKinley chose San Luis Obispo
This property is the perfect place to enjoy while you are in SLO County - we have wonderful vistas, toys (if you bring the family), a bbq, a park right down the street, - everything to make your stay relaxing, enjoyable, and memorable.
What makes this House unique
This is the only lakeside rental home in SLO, and you will love it. You will feel like you have really gotten away from it all, and yet you are just two miles from downtown SLO. This house will welcome you and make you want to never leave...

That view from the deck!
A lovely welcoming home on a beautiful piece of property. Very accommodating host with everything we needed for a great gathering to celebrate our daughter’s graduation. The hot tub, outdoor fireplace, and amazing view were well appreciated. Eating breakfast on the deck with all the bird calls, morning sun, and lake reflections was a highlight.
Our family (4 adults / 3 kids) absolutely LOVED our weekend at Leslie's perfect home. There is a great playroom for kids, a well stocked kitchen, and the most amazing deck with a great view. Of course, a great hot tub!
Leslie was a great and accommodating host! Stay here if you get the chance!
Thank You! I am so happy when my guests have a great stay, and especially when they have children - I KNOW how hard it can be to travel with kids! And your message on Sunday, when you said how very peaceful my home is, was so lovely. I totally agree, which is why I so love sharing this very special place. You are more than welcome to come back any time, it would be my pleasure to host your family again. But you must be sure to bring that beautiful baby!!
Great deck, beautiful view, lovely host.
Stayed here for a weekend with some friends, the house is pleasant and clean with everything you need and decent communal space. The real selling point though is a fantastic outdoor deck with a beautiful view, hot tub, fire, BBQ and dining table. Leslie who is the host is very accommodating and lovely to deal with.
I totally agree! I have always said that my house is not glamorous, but walk out onto my deck and you cannot believe that you are just a couple of miles from downtown! It is wonderful... Thank you for your kind words. And thank you for leaving my home in such beautiful condition, I really appreciate it. I love sharing my home and beautiful haven, and it is wonderful to know that others love it as much as I do. Take care.
Awesome and BEATUIFUL spot.
Myself and 11 other friends stayed for the weekend for our own little Cal Poly reunion. Leslie was very accommodating and friendly, and had plenty of suggestions for places to visit for people that aren't familiar with the San Luis Obispo area. The view at this place was amazing and we all found it hard to leave by the end of our stay. Incredible spot, with every amenity you could ask for. She made showing up easy, and leaving easier. Highly recommend staying at this spot.
I love hearing that you enjoyed your stay, and that you loved the deck as much as I do! You are welcome to come back any time, and thank you sooo much for the wonderful bottle of wine that you left for me! I am saving it for a special occasion, Tolosa is one of my favorite wineries! Thank you for leaving the house in such nice condition, that is always wonderful to come home to. Take care. You make Cal Poly Proud!
Would recommend it! It’s a cosy home away from home
We were a pack of 14members and felt absolutely at home. Leslie is very warm and welcoming. Her home speaks volumes of her warmth and character and one of our family members even commented that if they live to be a grandma they would want to be a nana like Leslie. Thank you. We would definitely recommend this rental if you want to be in the heart of the suburbs and yet enjoy nature and a beautiful lake right in your back yard.
I am so touched by this review. It is very sweet, thank you so much. Not only am I very happy that you had a good visit, but I love that you felt my family there with you - you rented a home and that is what I always want my guests to feel! You do not want a sterile hotel room, and it makes me happy to know that you felt at home, I love it! Thank you for leaving my home in such lovely shape, and for leaving me such a wonderful gift - I will enjoy it with a friend and think of you often. Please come back any time you wish to visit the central coast, you will always be welcome in my home! Happy New Year!
Beautiful view, comfy beds, friendly Host!
We rented this house for our daughter’s graduation from Cal Poly mid December. The location was very convenient (overflow guests stayed at the nearby Best Western). We hosted dinner for 12 with no problem. So many dishes and linens to choose from! The homeowner couldn’t be nicer or more helpful. Her home is full of loving touches from her kids and grandkids - it warms your heart! The beds had Christmas bedding, which was fun, and they were so cozy and comfortable. The view of the lake is spectacular and I could have spent hours sitting on the large back deck looking at the wildlife if I had more time. Waking in the master bedroom to the light coming thru the fog onto the lake was magical. This is not a cookie cutter investment property VRBO. You are staying in a well loved home and it shows.
I love that you had a wonderful stay and enjoyed being here! I know how stressful commencement weekend can be for the family, and I am so happy that you had a wonderful visit! Yes, this is my home, and I do want my guests to feel like they are visiting a friend - it makes me feel so good when that comes across to wonderful people like you. Thank you for leaving my home in such wonderful shape and for sharing your visit with others. You can come back anytime, my door will always be open for you and your family! There are certainly guests who stand out - and you rate a 10+ in my book! Happy Holidays!
