San Luis Obispo Estate Rental Photos and Description

Breathtaking 6 Bedroom Spanish Estate w/pool, guest house and loft suite

Casa Contenta is a sprawling and luxurious Spanish Estate nestled on 6 acres in the Avila Valley overlooking vineyards. From the home, everything is just a walk or bike ride away: beach, golf, wine tasting, dining and concerts! A quick drive to downtown SLO, Avila Valley has the most desirable weather in the county, offering a warm and sunny micro climate. The beautiful Bob Jones Bike Trail, Sycamore Hot Springs and the Avila Barn is less than a mile from the home as well as restaurants, a tennis resort and golf course.

This gorgeous residence features a heated pool and built in outdoor spa, 3 outdoor gas firepits and a stunning Moroccan lounge -- a favorite retreat for guests, as well as a playground area for younger children. There are walking trails as well within the secured, fenced 6 acres of the property.

The main residence includes 3 bedrooms, each with a private bathroom and flat screen TV, 3 fireplaces, large formal dining, gourmet kitchen, wine cellar, great room and kid’s retreat. Directly adjacent is the charming Casitas, or guest house, with two additional bedrooms, a large bathroom, living room, fireplace and a stunning eat-in kitchen. Additionally, “the Loft” is a spacious retreat including a king bed and bathroom, fireplace, flat screen TV and large lounging area.

In total, the home sleeps 12, offing 2 king beds, 3 queens and 1 set of full bunk beds in a total of 6,450 square feet.

The residence has been renovated throughout offering contemporary luxury in a gorgeous Spanish hacienda. The property has endless places to gather in large groups, or escape for some privacy. The perfect location for a first-class Central Coast get-away.

Casa Contenta is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Contenta is simply wonderful. We were a group of 12 celebrating a landmark birthday. The owners and manager went above and beyond the call of duty to make our stay spectacular. Casa Contenta is advertised as a 6-bedroom estate. Our group needed an extra bed. Amazingly, they purchased a high-end comfortable additional sofa-sleeper to accommodate our needs.....wow! The manager is an excellent communicator and responds very quickly. Upon our arrival, we were unexpectedly treated to a spread of hors d'oeuvres that any food professional would be proud to serve. The estate itself.....they spared no expense.....you will be in awe when you walk in the front door. The infinity pool and spa are very inviting. The upstairs Moroccan Lounge contains a fire pit that became a prime gathering place for our group....and the views from the Lounge are another wow-factor. It's close to restaurants and wineries. I highly recommend Casa Contenta.....you will not be disappointed!

Rest - Relaxation - Romance -Revelry

This place has it all. It is so gorgeous and inviting. But also secluded and peaceful.

Close to the Avila beach trail - wine tasting and dining.

Although not on the beach, it is a wonderful escape from the stress of Bay Area living.

I cannot recommend this place enough. Accommodating owners were very understanding to a little noise we made one of the nights.

It was a highly enjoyable and very memorable vacation. Extraordinarily well appointed kitchen too which made the main parts of each day easy.

Best House Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This Avila Casa Contenta was one of the most beautiful homes I have ever been it. We rented this caza for our daughter's wedding weekend. We are so happy that we did. The pictures, believe it or not, do not do it justice. The accomdations were fantastic. The views were amazing. The manager was wonderful. He was attentive to our needs. I will absolutely rent Avila Casa Contenta again.

Could not have been better!

  • 5 of 5

The home was gorgeous, the layout was perfect, there was plenty of room for everyone. The photos do not do it justice. The views are gorgeous from the three outdoor fire pits. Panoramic! The home actually made our trip. Usually our lodging is just a place to crash, but this was a place to gather. We never wanted to leave. There was nothing we needed that wasn't there. Alex, the property manager, was very friendly and could not have been more responsive and patient. We will definitely go back and can't wait!!

Avila Escape with Friends

  • 5 of 5

Even before our actual stay Nancy was so helpful in working out details and providing information. Two points were especially important to my husband......that each of our 6 couples had a private bedroom and bathroom and that all 12 of us could sit at the same dining table. Nancy allowed us to do a walk through to view the available rooms prior to the stay so my husband could rest assured. Rodney provided a beautiful addition to the dining table to accommodate our group.

The home itself is elegant and beautiful but invites visitors to relax and enjoy. There are rooms large enough for everyone to gather, play games, visit or watch a movie. But there are quiet places to have a moment to yourself. The views are amazing and the evenings around one of the fire pits after a dip in the heated pool are a perfect end to the day. The cushioned seating area in the elevated covered lounge was comfortable enough for a peaceful nap or visiting around the large fire pit.

There are several cooks in our group and they were in heaven with the beautifully appointed kitchen and pantry. We always have one special night usually with dinner out. Nancy suggested a private chef to come in, prepare, cook and clean up afterward. French Chef Jose' Dahan and his helper Carol was outstanding. Chef Jose' was personable, instructive and allowed anyone wanting to help to do so. The meal was decadently delicious and everyone enjoyed it.

Aside from relaxing and eating, our group had varied interests. Some went kayaking in Morro Bay, hiking on the nearby Bob Jones Trail, shopping, wine tasting with a picnic lunch at Edna Valley Winery. There were also a couple of heated ping pong and pool tournaments when we got back to the house.

The only "negative" to this property actually ended up making it even more fun and memorable. One of the bedrooms had only a bunk bed (double bed bottom with top twin) and the bathroom had no lock on the door leading to the hallway. The wife said she solved the problem of no lock on the bathroom door by singing while she showered. It was the newest couple to our group so we told them it was their initiation.

We highly recommend Casa Contenta and will book again!
