AVILA VALLEY, APPLE ORCHARD ESTATE, WHAT A LOCATION!

San Luis Obispo Estate Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedroom, 5 Bathrooms In The Main House With A 1 Bedroom 1 Bathroom Guest House

Avila Valley Apple Orchard Estate -This new listing features a Mediterranean style 4000 square foot Palace/Executive Retreat, 5 bedrooms and 5 baths, King and Queen sized beds, single beds, laundry room, gourmet kitchen, living room, family room, pool table, dining room, 3 fireplaces, covered outside patio kitchen, swimming pool, hot tub, bocce ball court, outside fire place, outside grill, outside oak pit BBQ grill and the token ping pong table. The main house sleeps 10. There is also a Guest House available for rent! The guest house is 650 square feet and is a swanky love shack, designers delight. It has 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom with a full kitchen and fireplace. It sleeps 2 very romantically. It's a perfect retreat for those looking for a little privacy. The guest house is negotiable depending upon your length of stay and size of your group.

The main house is fully loaded with things you won't even use but we have them anyway. The House feels like home. It's super cozy because we left it the way it was when we lived there full time. When we don't have guests we still love to enjoy the place and we've left a few personal items around. It's welcoming and warm with some great decorations and cool furniture. The house is thick and solid, heated with in-floor thermal/radiant heat. It feels so good and no air has to blow around. The guest house is heated with a charming 2 way gas fireplace.

The kitchen was made for chefs and wannabe's. Lots of room to play around with your favorite formulas and feel free to chop right on the counter top. This is a party kitchen and it seems to always be the place to hang out and relax.

Views from any angle of the 2 acre, fully landscaped compound are stunning. The hillsides are always green and this location has 'the best weather' in SLO county. The beaches can be foggy but it's always lovely in the valley. In the morning you can sip coffee while enjoying the backyard vistas (wearing whatever you want because it's private). The views from the backyard in the summer can be mesmerizing as the coastal fog drifts over the hill and melts away as it meets the warm valley air.

The house is just a mile off of the 101 freeway via San Luis Bay Drive. The beach town of Avila and San Luis Bay is less than 2 miles away. Nearby attractions include the town of Avila and the Harbor as well as countless wine tasting, farmers markets and SLO is only 8 minutes away. There is a little market right across the street in case you need something.

We've even got a few cruiser bikes available in the garage so you can jump on the bike path and be at the beach in just minutes. We also have a few surfboards and wetsuits available if you feel like frolicking in the Pacific and becoming part of the 'food chain'.

This is a sweet house that our family built in 2000 and we have been loving it. The kids are grown now and my wife and I are hiding out in the hills north of Santa Barbara. We decided to do the VRBO thing because so many of our friends and guest have enjoyed the house (I think they enjoyed helping themselves to my wine cellar) and we didn't really want to sell it but ... share it with others. This place has it all and the proximity to everything makes it a wonderful home for a family reunion/getaway/business retreat/girls weekend. (Note: The location is very private and in a gated neighborhood so .... sorry, but we can't allow weddings or large gatherings on the property.)

Sorry it has taken me so long to post a review! A group of us met up here in SLO to run the Marathon & what a treat it was for us to stay in this house! A beautiful, relaxing, fun property that had something to offer to the wide range of ages in our group. We all enjoyed using the professional grade espresso machine and the kitchen was well-stocked with staple items for us to use. The property was very clean and well cared for and when a problem did arise with the fridge, the owner was very handy and responded to the issue promptly. We had kids in our group that enjoyed the pool, the guys enjoyed playing bocce ball and hanging out at the outdoor fire pit, the teenagers enjoyed the state-of-the-art surround sound system that was available in every room so they could jam to their tunes everywhere they went and the ladies enjoyed relaxing around the pool and being able to cook outside and "hang" where all the action was taking place:) The fact that the property was within riding/walking distance to the beach & included bicycles for our use was extremely handy and fun for all of us when we wanted to explore a bit. We all had a wonderful time and felt really comfortable here. Would totally recommend this rental property to anyone looking for a beautiful, relaxing place to stay while visiting SLO or any surrounding area. We hope we get to return again next year:)

HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
We had an extraordinary time here. The house and grounds are gorgeous. We happened to be there during a heat wave and spent three days in the pool. Our kids ages: 11, 10 and 5 had a blast. We played pool, ping-pong, grilled outdoors, played music throughout the house and had a great afternoon watching the Kentucky Derby (Go California Chrome!). We will definitely be back.

AVILA VALLEY

This was absolutely a beautiful place. Words can hardly describe. At least part of our family met the owners and they were nice, helpful, friendly and beautiful people. We would all love to visit again someday. I do not believe California has a pretties area than San Luis Obispo.

Very special place to celebrate a special birthday. My family loved the place - including the fancy coffee maker, the pool, hot tub, pool table, bocce ball ct. and fabulous kitchen. Almost no need to leave the beautifully landscaped grounds! Everyone loved it and hope to come back next year.

ITALIAN VILLA IN AVILA!

  • 5 of 5
This place is amazing!! We absolutely loved our stay here. We booked it for my family to stay in the weekend of my wedding, which was down the way in Nipomo. The owners' daughter and son met us upon check-in and gave us a tour of the place as well as informed us how the lights and sound system worked. They gave us little tips and showed us everything we had access to in the house. They also left a cute little welcome basket on the counter as well.

Both the bride and groom got ready at the house on the day of the wedding. We took numerous pictures on site. We also had a brunch the next day on the gorgeous patio. The patio and pool are something from a dream. Everyone we invited over could not believe this place. It's that fantastic.

They also are ok with pets too! Heck, our dog loved this house too. We have already put a deposit down to rent this place for a long weekend later this year. It may become a tradition.

It's close to Avila Beach--we biked their from the house! It's right on the bike trail that runs through Avila. It's also close to Target and Costco in San Luis Obispo so you can stock up on food there and come back and cook in the gorgeous kitchen.

We loved it and can't wait to go back! Thanks!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Jody! I don't normally respond to these lovely notes but I started laughing at the end of yours because I couldn't pay anybody to write anything more flattering. We are glad that you guys all enjoyed the house. We had fun designing and building the compound knowing that it would be something worth sharing. By doing the VRBO thing we are enjoying the estate even more. (without all of our personal clutter) We hope that you come back again and .... we'll leave a light on for ya!
