We are at the southern tip of the world-famous Big Sur Coast, with Carmel-by-the-Sea about three hours to the north along Highway one.

My four friends and I had a great stay with Ryan and his family. The space was very clean and great for us. We also got to meet Sadie (their beautiful dog) who was super friendly. The breakfast food was great as well and we wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for your hospitality!

Very nice place with loads of extras like recommendations on what to do and eat, toiletries, music player and free breakfast stuff. Only downside was we felt it was a little crammed for 6 adults but for one night it works and great value!

I am a recent Cinematography Grad of SFSU and plan on traveling throughout the US and possibly Europe, utilizing Airbnb when possible, while developing my film career. Our permanent address is SLO where my sister and I were born and grew up. My mom lives in our family home with our Golden, Sadie, and cat, and she enjoys traveling abroad. We offer our guest "Studio Loft," which was designed as a private studio apartment with kitchen and bathroom, and includes all the amenities you'll need to assure your visit to SLO is a memorable one. Hopefully, you too will discover why San Luis Obispo is called the "Happiest Place in America."

We've put together a list of our favorite things to do for all ages and abilities, from "the Best Wineries for locally grown Cabernet, Pinot, Zins, and Chardonnay," to various hiking trails, beaches, state parks, places and events you'll want to see, and our favorite restaurants, bars, music, and much more. All of the information you might need is available to you in our "Concierge" binder. Upon your arrival, you will be greeted with soft music from the iPod, and in the morning you'll start your day with breakfast provided for you in the fridge, including delicious SLO brewed coffee. If my mom's around, she'll make sure your stay is great. So if I miss you when you come to town, enjoy yourselves and "We'll leave the light on for you."
