The SpaceYour accommodations include a full complimentary breakfast for you and your guests to prepare in the privacy of your secluded sloStudioLoft. Free parking on premises! sloStudioLoft is located at the northern perimeter of the Edna Valley AVA, and just 6-8 minutes from downtown San Luis Obispo, California. We are about half-way between San Francisco to the north (230 miles, 370 km), and Los Angeles to the south (170 miles, 273 km). 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.
The sloStudioLoft is surrounded by trees in a quiet residential neighborhood with a newly renovated and private (for your use only) swimming pool, slide, and travertine patio. There is a grass lined seasonal creek in the rear of the property under sycamore and pepper trees.
When you arrive you will be greeted with soft background music playing through remote speakers from the iPod. Auxiliary cord can be used for listening to your personal iTunes Library, or music streaming on your mobile device.
The sloStudioLoft has been recently renovated providing you and your guests all the amenities you may need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The high ceiling and loft provide a feeling of spaciousness; our guests enjoy the kitchenette, bar, dining area, and flat screen satellite TV without ever feeling "cramped".
The kitchenette (see photos) includes a 2-burner gas stove, mini fridge, counter-top convection oven, and a microwave. It is well stocked with everything you need to prepare a meal including dishes, glassware, silverware, pots and pans, bowls, knives, spices and cooking utensils. Enjoy dining indoors or outdoors on the beautiful stone patio. Seating for 6 (++). The outdoor propane grill is great for pool-side, summer-time, or any-time BBQ's.
The loft above (w/ ladder access) sleeps 4 guests in 2 queen/double -size beds (each with 4" memory foam), and down below the queen bed sleeps 2 more comfortably (also with 4" memory foam, see photos). A comfortable double bed futon/sofa now provides an additional sleep and lounging area down below.
***We also have a very comfortable queen-sized 6" foam floor pad with linen, pillows, comforters, and additional towels, all available for your children or additional guests.
The newly redesigned and upgraded bathroom, shower & laundry room are accessed through a doorway for your private use. (We sometimes share the laundry, accessed by an outer locked door for your privacy.) The private and secluded travertine stone patio winds around the pool and opens out through a gated lawn-banked seasonal creek. All outdoor area is private and available just for you during your stay. Our friendly, family golden retriever "Sadie" may want to play with you, but just close the blinds. She'll get the hint. Guest AccessOur guests enjoy a private, keyless entrance to the the sloStudioLoft. The entry door opens to a private patio and sun-warmed pool & slide in the summer (May-September). Guests enjoy sunbathing on the secluded patio lounge furniture throughout the year. The gated and fenced seasonal creek-side lawn area is a safe place for your non-barking dog to roam if you choose to bring along your pup (see "Pets" below). Laundry facilities available; please be conscious of our SLO water shortage and California drought. We respect your privacy, but are available to make your stay as comfortable as possible; please let us know in advance if you have any special needs.
There is a $25 Pet Cleaning Fee. Pets will be charged as an additional person/per day ($15/day). Pet owners will assure that their dog is respectful of the Property, not allow barking, and avoid leaving pet alone in the StudioLoft, unless host is available to help care for your pup during your absence.
We ask that our guests read and agree to comply with our Prop. Agreement which you will receive after booking via email, and sign upon arrival. The pool is an amenity. There may be a rare occasion that pool maintenance must be done in order to comply with providing a safe and sanitary environment for our guests.
Airbnb rate does not yet include 13% San Luis Obispo Bed and new County Tourism Tax. We ask that you pay the tax upon arrival. Thank you for your compliance with this new San Luis Obispo City and County ordinance. Interaction with GuestsWe want you to feel as though you belong right at home here at the sloStudioLoft. Therefore we will message you easy check-in instructions. Please review carefully prior to your arrival. Your privacy is important to us during your stay, although we are always available if you need anything. We will provide you with a "pre-visit" email list of "what-to-do" and "where-to-go" in SLO that may be helpful in planning your activities and making reservations. When you arrive you'll find a "Concierge Binder" describing some of our favorite Bars, Beaches, Restaurants, Galleries and Wineries, and Trips and Trails, as a resource for your convenience during your stay, including brochures to review. The NeighborhoodOur quiet and very safe neighborhood is on a cul-de-sac, therefore minimal car traffic is rarely heard. In the mornings you can hear the birds singing in the trees surrounding the property. This is an exceptionally secluded, upscale residential neighborhood including young families with children, as well as older, retired couples who built their own homes 30+ years ago. Please be respectful, and monitor the "noise level" of your group or party after hours. Getting Around• Uber: now available here in SLO
Our guests love the local safe and friendly drivers for quick trips downtown for dinner or "bar-hopping." Some of the drivers are also available for a "Private Chauffeured Wine Tasting Tour of SLO County." A day rate is predetermined by you (can be very reasonable).

Other Things to NoteWe have recently spent a lot of love-filled energy and time remodeling and renovating our home to improve the comfort and beauty we have come to enjoy.
