Spent a get-away weekend with my brother at this lovely unit in Avila Beach. Just a block from the beach and restaurants, with good ocean views from windows and porch. Parking for two cars was a plus, as was the 2nd bathroom. No A/C, but fans are provided. We had dinner at the Old Custom House and breakfast at Hula Hut - both very enjoyable.
Unfortunately, none of us slept very well on the very unsupportive mattresses and pillows. There was one very flat pillow provided for each sleeper. We have stayed in vacation rentals for years, and never had fewer than two pillows available per guest (the best rentals provide one soft and one firm). This was extremely disappointing, since several previous reviewers mentioned comfortable beds. Additionally, an extra towel or two would have been helpful. Things don't dry as quickly near the sea. Also, when any of the outside lights are on, the King bedroom is very bright. If you need it dark to sleep, bring an eye mask.
We would consider staying here again, but bring our own pillows and probably try to find a way to mitigate the mattresses - maybe top them with air mattresses. We managed, but if you have any type of back or neck trouble, this is not the rental for you.
