About chris knauer

Chris and Diana Knauer have lived on the Central Coast for over 20 years. The Avila beach home was completed in 2010 and its conclusion was an absolute dream come true. We were involved in every detail and believe we have built a home that will delight all renters.

Some of our favorite things to do is travel and meet new people. We are happy to share our beach residence with you as I know it will be an unforgetable experience for you.

We have been in San Luis Obispo for over 20 years and the area has many great leisure activities, outdoor activities and incredible weather. Avila Beach is home to 300 days of sunshine a year. When Santa Barbara and Pismo Beach are socked in with fog, Avila Beach is sunny most days...

Beautiful House & needs some attention

  • 3 of 5

We loved the location and house. Perfect for entertaining for our family reunion. The manager was as attentive as possible and very friendly. We did have a horrible ant problem the whole week that went unresolved. I didn't want to write a bad review and tried to reach out to the owner, but he didn't respond. We had to throw out food, shake our clothes out etc. The house could have been left a lot cleaner and in better condition, considering the price we paid. If the owner addresses several issues, this place is great.

Owner's Response: I am pleased you enjoyed the house but I didn't agree with your assessment of the situation. First of All, you pushed the house manager and cleaners to get in the house early when it wasn't ready. We accommodated you. Secondly, the house manager came by on two occasions to address the ant situation and noticed food all over the counters and on the floors, etc. We supplied you with a can of Ant spray to eradicate the problem, which it did. In addition, you and I spoke on the phone about the ant problem and I addressed the situation immediately. Stating we never spoke is incorrect.

Amazing property!! Views, Views, Views!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay at this "Beach Front Paradise"!! The location is perfect - we did not need to drive anywhere other than to golf and hike Bishop Peak Trail. We BBQ'd both nights on the rooftop - gorgeous sunset, fire pit, lounge chairs. Our adult children could not stop raving about the fabulous home!! Huge thanks to Gillian for meeting us at the home (very late since we were driving in from the Bay Area after work) and showing us everything we needed to know in order to enjoy our stay. Can't say enough about this home and the town of Avila. Hope to have the opportunity to stay again very soon!!

Fantastic location, fabulous house, phenomenal rooftop deck.

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing week at this house. There was something for everyone—games, movies, people watching, boogie boarding, sunning, gourmet kitchen, and rooftop dining. The house is well-equipped, tastefully furnished, and comfortable. We loved every aspect and highly recommend this venue. Zero complaints. We are so happy we chose this house!

Incredible views

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay here - garage will fit 3-4 cars easy. I gave it four stars because the 3rd queen bed is not really in a bedroom but in the basement/theater room with no windows and a noisy cricket.

Otherwise - nice kitchen, views and rooftop deck can’t be beat. Location couldn’t have been better.

We were super happy!
