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.

chris knauer purchased this house in 2010

Why chris knauer chose Central Coast California

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...

Best Vacation/Location Home

  • 5 of 5

We reserved this home a year in advance for graduation week. This home and location exceeded our expectations above and beyond. Ocean front with the large front window that opens all the way allowing for the awesome view, the sounds of the waves and the breeze come through and with a first class kitchen, clean comfy beds, TV in every room. A big plus is the 4 car garage, we were there at a very busy time and parking was an issue, so we really appreciated the garage. This house is right in the center of all the action, the Friday Farmers Market, bars, and restaurants. We had the very best time there, had a couple of small gatherings to celebrate the graduation and used the upper deck to BBQ (what a view) kids used the lower entertainment room to play ping pong, watch TV etc. We were so fortunate to be there during the whale migration, so for our entire stay, we whale watched every day, all day, it was truly a special treat for us and our guest. We had the best time, we will definitely return, it was the best of everything for us. The management was very helpful and attentive, we had a couple of issues early on and they were immediately there to help.

The best - incredible - phenomenal - amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this house justice! The ocean front view, convenient shops, great quality cookware, soft beds, clean & well-maintained house, plenty of towels, fun ping-pong & basketball, roomy garage, convenient elevator, we couldn't ask for more. This house is really fully stocked, it has everything we needed for a vacation. This vacation house sets the bar high for everything else in the future.

Amazing vacation despite weather

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately we picked a week with unusually poor weather. However, everything about the house was perfect and made ignoring the weather easy. We stayed there with two families including five children under 10. The deck sliding glass doors opened all of the way to allow the sounds of waves to fill the main floor and give us a full view of the much so we let the kids go to the beach by themselves. The basement with large TV and games was heaven for the kids. The roof deck was incredible but we didn't get the chance to use it much. The building is on the main beach street with shops and restaurants but it surprisingly feels quiet and removed when you aren't looking out the window.

I would definitely recommend choosing this location and we plan to stay there again.

Stunning views, comfort, & convenience

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful downtown Avila location, even more impressive than the photos. Wonderful evenings on the roof deck around the fire pit spent star and coast gazing. A great location for us to stay for our son's wedding in SLO. Owner very helpful in making the arrangements and his rep (Gillian) very warm and welcoming in showing us all the features and operations of the home. A true luxury property.
