About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5) One/two couples or family of 5

Welcome to our Avila Beach condo. This luxury unit offers a relaxing and comfortable getaway in the warm, eternally sunny beach community of Avila. Our three-story Avila condo is only steps away from the beach, with ocean views from our rooftop deck. Enjoy your morning coffee while sitting at our large private deck off the main floor, and relax at night around our deck firepit. Here, you wake up and go to sleep to the soothing sounds of ocean waves.

Situated within a private, gated complex and off the main street, this town-house style unit has two bedrooms (one king-size bed in the master bedroom off the main floor, and a full/twin combo bunk bed with twin size pull out trundle in 2nd bedroom). The master bathroom has a walk in shower, and the downstairs bathroom has a shower/bath combination with private vanity sinks in dressing area. It can comfortably sleep 5-6, but best accommodates two couples or one family. It is completely furnished and includes three flat-screen televisions, a stocked kitchen, Viking appliances, high-speed wireless internet, satellite tv, and quality bed linens and towels.

Our bi-level rooftop deck is complete with a built in stainless steel barbecue and counter top, mini-fridge, and sink for dinners.

This condo is perfect for a relaxing, entertaining, and carefree getaway!

Located right in the heart of this quaint town, you are surrounded by delightful oceanfront restaurants, cafes, bars, and a variety of shops. There are nine local tasting rooms within walking distance of the condo. Also available are several shops for beach equipment rentals or purchases. Nearby is the Avila Golf Course, an 18 hole course that winds through the Avila canyon, crossing the San Luis Creek several times, treating you to beautiful views of the bay. There are also hiking trails, local spas and hot springs, and a locals favorite, the Bob Jones Bike Trail, that follows the San Luis creek for miles. For the children, there is a marine life museum, a children's park, and of course the beach. Beginning in the late spring/early summer, enjoy Avila's own farmer’s market held every Friday. The town offers so much for you to enjoy. You will truly cherish the memories of the time spent in our Avila community.

About Nancy Palmer

We are a local family from San Luis Obispo and we love getting away to our Avila condo. We enjoy surfing, kayaking, fishing, and playing on the beach when we spend time in Avila.

Nancy Palmer purchased this condo in 2011

Why Nancy Palmer chose Central Coast California

The town of Avila is a peaceful, quaint community that we truly enjoy spending time in. This rental is close enough to our home for a quick getaway. It is also very close to San Luis Obispo and Pismo Beach, if there is any need to travel to a larger city.

What makes this condo unique

A corner unit that's full of light. Panoramic views from roof top deck of the golf course, ocean, pier, mountains and charming community of Avila. Everything is a walk away for a totally relaxing get-away. Beautifully appointed and well maintained.

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many places through VRBO and airbnb, and this was one of the best experiences we have ever had.

The owner, Nancy, discovered that there was construction taking place next to the rental that could affect our enjoyment of our stay, and she preemptively contacted us to find a mutually agreeable solution. She was extremely honest and fair, and we were quite happy with how it all turned out.

Sadly, they have lost their view of the beach, but there is still an amazing 360-degree view from the rooftop deck. We were fortunate that the workers took the weekend off, though we did meet neighbors who said that during the week, construction begins as early as 7am.

Before checking in, the property manager, Linda, reached out to us. She also called the morning after our arrival (we got in at midnight) to be sure all was well. There was also a bottle of wine waiting on the counter for us - a nice touch! Getting our Toyota Sienna in and out of the two-car garage was easy.

The place itself was awesome. Everything was immaculate and looked new, furniture and decor was comfortable, there were directions strategically placed for TVs, ceiling fans, thermostat, etc. Kitchen was well stocked and appliances worked well.

Location is excellent. It took literally less than a minute to get to the main street, and another minute to cross the street, descend the stairs, and be on the beach. We enjoyed the use of their surfboard, beach umbrella, and beach chairs. They have one standard size boogie board and a couple of small ones. I was glad that we brought our own.

Our three kids (14, 14, 11) shared the room downstairs and said the beds were comfortable. Our upstairs bed was also very comfortable. The room is not huge, but the walk in closet made up for it. The water in the upstairs shower does take a few minutes to warm up.

Family room provided plenty of room for our family of five to relax together after a long day at the beach. The fire pit was easy to use. At first, I was worried because there weren't screens on the sliding doors next to the kitchen, especially since we needed to keep everything open in the evenings due to the unusually hot weather, but we had no problems whatsoever with bugs.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Avila Beach and plan to return to this rental next summer.

Avila heavenly family time

  • 5 of 5

This place and its hosts were just what we needed for our family spring break. Just the right size for us and our three kids, reading together by fire pit, grilling with ocean view on top deck, hiking beautiful waterfront, playing at the beach and at the golf course (the boys and I literally walked home after evening 9 holes while girls were at the movies the next town South). This was truly a heavenly getaway!

Wonderful weekend on the coast

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here once as a guest of a friend had a fabulous time so I booked it for myself! Beautifully furnished ans well stocked kitchen, bathroom, and bedrooms. My guests and I were never in need of something we couldn't find already available at the house! Location is prime in Avila as it is one block from the beach, has an ocean view from the roof, and is steps (literally maybe 50 yards or less) from a smoothie shop, Custom House restaurant (best/nicest restaurant in Avila) and Hula Hut (perfect for coffee or casual hot breakfast). I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Avila if I could! A wonderful weekend and amazing accomodations. Highly recommend.

Lovely property, close to beach

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, well equipped.. only issue was the unreliable water pressure and unavailability of hot water during our stay. Stairs were a bit of an issue for me, but not for my family.

Enjoyed the small 'village' as the shop keepers were very friendly..especially enjoyed Hula Hut, grocery/ deli staff. The Grill, Mission Pizza food was excellent...personal very upbeat.

Fun time wine tasting across the street, appreciated the free tasting.

Great beach walking despite the cool weather.

Owner's Response: The owners regret that during this guest's stay there were water issues. We immediately responded to the problem, and the issue ended up being a major plumbing problem due to the water softening system. This system had been managed monthly, but now needed to be replaced. We compensated the guest for the inconvenience, and followed up with a post stay phone call to make sure we handled the issue fairly. This problem was not due to neglect as we maintain the property continuously, just a plumbing issue that decided to make its "appearance" during this guest's stay. The guest was very gracious and understanding.
