San Luis Obispo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

One Bedroom, One Bath (2 Sleeps) Apartment Overlooking Avila Valley

Nestled at the top of a mountain, view the beautiful Avila Valley and Pacific Ocean from your cozy quiet apartment. Sit in front of the fireplace or on the balcony while watching the hawks soar, hummingbirds flutter and deer roam.

The open living room/kitchen boasts a 54 inch flat screen TV, Bose entertainment system and full kitchen. The bedroom has a Queen sized bed with full bathroom and lots of closet space for even long stays.

Enjoy a BBQ on the patio balcony while taking in the beauty that is the Central Coast or take a short trip down the mountain to the quaint town of Avila Beach to fish off the pier, take a walk or bicycle ride on the Jones Trail, golf, whale watch, have a special meal or soak in the redwood tubs under the stars or massage @ Sycamore Hot Springs and Spa. San Luis Obispo is a quick 15 minutes away with their famous Thursday Night Farmers' Market, many shops and restaurants. The 5-cities area to the south including Pismo Beach is just 10 miles away. Being surrounded by almost 200 wineries, wine tasting is very popular. Travel north about 1 hour to the magnificent Hearst Castle stopping nearby to see the elephant seals who migrate here. There is so much to do or not to do, depending on your heart's desire. Come visit us at this secluded special place.

Why Cherie & Teresa Federer chose Central Coast California

We are nestled on a mountain side on twenty acres, over looking the Avila valley and the Pacific Ocean. Please check out our website for more information.

What makes this apartment unique

Quiet and in the country, but close enough to all that the central coast has to offer. 10 minutes away from San Luis Obispo, 10 minutes to Pismo , and 5 minutes to Avila .

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a few days here on a work trip. Amazing views and lots of hummingbirds to look at as my "office view". Had a nice time grilling as well. Bed was comfy and the fireplace a nice touch on the foggy evenings. Great place, fully equipped with anything you need.

Road to Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have spent our 3rd year with Cherie and Terri at Mountain Top. Just gets better every year! As host, they are exceptional. Always tuned in to your needs. Every year we discover more and more to do. From hiking new trails, biking, beautiful golf courses, great restaurants, hiking to pier to purchase our fresh catch of the day to grill on our private deck. Can't wait to return next year! Thanks for always making our stay very memorable. Susan & Bernie

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this cute ocean top view apartment. It felt remote tucked up in the hills, but it was a short drive from the freeway. It is a short distance to Pismo, Avila and SLO. We loved sitting on the patio and taking in the beautiful scenery. This place has all the amenities you could possibly need with an extra comfortable bed. Would definitely recommend a romantic getaway here!

Loved our stay here!

  • 5 of 5

We flew into LA from Sydney, Aus and came directly to your mountaintop retreat. We were looking for a place to get our bodies adjusted to the new timezone before we moved on with our travels. Your place, and the location were just what we hoped for! The apartment was very comfortable, clean and well set-up with everything we needed. From the guest book we found some great ideas for local events and places to visit. We soaked in the hot tubs at Sycamore Springs, hiked to Avila Beach and up over Pirate Cove, went to the Avila Beach Farmers Markets on Friday night, and had a day trip into Morro Bay. Relaxing on the balcony in the early evenings and taking in the views was another highlight. I highly recommend your apartment and hope to return one day. We loved being on the Central Coast and were so taken by how much it has to offer.

Awesome territorial and ocean view

  • 5 of 5

Great territorial and sea view. Convenient access to coast and SLO. Tidy, clean and efficient. We were very pleased with our stay and felt like this VRBO was a great value. Comfortable and relaxing. Nice balcony with barbeque. We spent a lot of time in SLO at daughter's graduation, or would have enjoyed hanging out here more.
