Central Coast California 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.

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 .

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.

Breathtakingly beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental met all of our expectations and then some! It was very clean and well maintained and the little extras they provide makes it so if you forgot something no worries it's there! Oh yeah and the bed is like sleeping on a cloud! We will definitely go back and tell our friends.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Booked this fantastic retreat at the end of a business trip to get away from everything, but still be minutes away from SLO and the beach. The views of the ocean and surrounding mountains are beautiful. There were deer on our drive up the winding hillside road at night and plenty of hummingbirds during the day. The fireplace was great for the cool evenings and everything is provided we could need. Our only regret was we were so busy with family that we did not get to spend enough time here. Thanks for the wonderful stay.

A lovely retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned to this wonderful space for our second visit. It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and we had a very relaxing trip. Not only is it close to Avila Beach and SLO for restaurants and shopping, but there is so much hiking in the area - we ended up walking an average of 4 miles per day. The apartment has those lovely ocean and valley views, the hummingbirds, and even a few lizards who came up on the balcony for a visit. Cherie & Teresa made us feel so welcome and valued, much appreciated! We eagerly anticipate our next visit.

Our stay in this gorgeous place was nothing short of magnificent! We LOVED the view, the amenities, the surrounding area, the fireplace, the privacy, and so on and so forth. The place was clean, charming, well-kept, and well stocked with all kinds of "nice-to-haves" (we used the provided picnic basket multiple times). I feel like I could go on and on, so I'll just say this...this was our favorite place during our travels throughout the California coast, and I would recommend it to anyone!

Fantastic View - Great Little Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four nights at the Fern Canyon Rim. The apartment above the garage is very nice and has a fabulous view. There is an easy-to-drive winding road with no street lights leading to the property. It was easy for us because we arrived before sunset; after that there was no issue driving the road in the dark. One evening we saw a fox and a skunk. It was exciting to see the fox . . . the skunk . . . not so much. ;) The location feels remote and is private yet it is close to everything. It is only a 5-minute drive to the highway.

The apartment is comfortable and is as depicted in the pictures. We found it clean and stocked with coffee and the necessities of a small kitchen. It has a separate, good-sized bedroom with a very comfortable queen-sized bed. The fireplace/heater is the source of heat for the apartment. My husband and I were very comfortable. We would stay here again and we recommend it to a party of 1 or 2 as an alternative to staying at a hotel.
