Overview

Avila Beach Estate Rental Photos and Description

Breathtaking 6 Bedroom Spanish Estate w/pool, guest house and loft suite

Casa Contenta is a sprawling and luxurious Spanish Estate nestled on 6 acres in the Avila Valley overlooking vineyards. From the home, everything is just a walk or bike ride away: beach, golf, wine tasting, dining and concerts! A quick drive to downtown SLO, Avila Valley has the most desirable weather in the county, offering a warm and sunny micro climate. The beautiful Bob Jones Bike Trail, Sycamore Hot Springs and the Avila Barn is less than a mile from the home as well as restaurants, a tennis resort and golf course.

This gorgeous residence features a heated pool and built in outdoor spa, 3 outdoor gas firepits and a stunning Moroccan lounge -- a favorite retreat for guests, as well as a playground area for younger children. There are walking trails as well within the secured, fenced 6 acres of the property.

The main residence includes 3 bedrooms, each with a private bathroom and flat screen TV, 3 fireplaces, large formal dining, gourmet kitchen, wine cellar, great room and kid’s retreat. Directly adjacent is the charming Casitas, or guest house, with two additional bedrooms, a large bathroom, living room, fireplace and a stunning eat-in kitchen. Additionally, “the Loft” is a spacious retreat including a king bed and bathroom, fireplace, flat screen TV and large lounging area.

In total, the home sleeps 12, offering 6 bedrooms, with 2 king beds, 3 queens and 1 set of full size bunk beds in a total of 6,450 square feet. A seventh bedroom can be made up in the "Circle Room" for an additional fee of $150.00. 14 guests would be the absolute maximum allowed for overnight guests, and an additional $100 per person per night would be charged for the 13th and 14th guest.

The residence has been renovated throughout offering contemporary luxury in a gorgeous Spanish hacienda. The property has endless places to gather in large groups, or escape for some privacy. The perfect location for a first-class Central Coast get-away.

Absolutely Spectacular! It doesn't get any sweeter!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much to the Cegelski family and all of the people associated with Casa Contenta! This estate is fabulous across the board! We spent five days there with out of town relatives for my daughter's Sweet 16th birthday, and everything was exceptional. There was lots of luxurious room to live and breath. The extensive grounds are meticulously maintained. The property overall is maintained to the highest standards and is upscale in every regard!

The teenagers all stayed in the guest house with their own bathroom, living room and kitchen. They loved the freedom that gave them all.

Overall this estate is of the absolute highest quality and at every turn you notice something new that you just would not ever expect from a vacation home. We spoke often of how easy it was to go to the store, buy food and you had everything you needed - just like at home! Unbelievable gourmet kitchen! The pool and spa were great ... sitting around the fire pits n the evening was relaxing ... even the way the music can be played in every room inside and out was unexpected, but greatly appreciated!

This is the PERFECT vacation home for any possible family gathering! Check in was easy and check out was even easy! Close to Avila Beach (one mile) - we walked there on the Bob Jones trail, but far enough from the crowds that beach hassles like parking or crowds did not affect us.

Thank you Robin, Rodney, Nancy, Linda and Jim for making this a truly spectacular family vacation to remember forever!!!

Incredible Family Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We recently visited Casa Contenta to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. We could not have picked a better spot. The home is PERFECT for a family gathering. We had 12 adults and 3 small children, and the home was perfect. It has plenty of space to give some privacy when desired, and the family areas - indoors and out - were great for family time. The kitchen is a gourmet chef's delight, and the outdoor kitchen was perfect for many of our meals. The pool, spa, and children's play area made for great settings fun times and memories that we will cherish forever. The home itself is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. Views and walking areas were awesome, and it was a short, 5 minute drive (or a reasonable walk) to the quaint town of Avila Beach. As I said earlier, we couldn't have asked for a better place for our family celebration.

Luxurious home and wonderful experience, perfect for our family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We hosted a family gathering, which swelled to a few dozen people for a time at this truly lovely Casa Contenta. The property was perfect for managing several generations of family with well-planned space to give everyone enough privacy and quiet, as needed, or engagement in the thick of things. We hired a local caterer for an evening and the kitchen layout and bar made this service very smooth and manageable in the space. This home is truly one of a kind in our experience and highly recommended for family gatherings, vacationers or events. Also of note was our rental experience and both responsiveness and hospitality of our hosts. We look forward to vacationing here again.

Surpassed all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the beautiful Casa Contenta for our wedding in Avila Beach. All I can say is WOW! What a beautiful home! The house was equipped with everything one could need while away from the comforts of home. We held both our rehearsal dinner and reception dinner at the house and the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed and the house provided ample space for our guests. Nancy was very responsive and helped answer any questions we had prior to our arrival at Casa Contenta. Jim and Linda were attentive to our needs during our stay and wonderful people to deal with. What a perfect location and home for our special day. We have already discussed booking here again for family reunions, we can't wait till next time!

AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here for our college reunion weekend and we could not have picked a better place. The kitchen is very spacious and everything is very modern. Our favorite aspect for the house was the spa/pool area and the lounge area upstairs with the fire pit. I would highly recommend Casa Contenta to anyone looking for a beautiful getaway!
