Property description

Enjoy amazing views of the beach, white water, and pier from this darling early 1900's cottage. Newly renovated with great attention to detail, you will love relaxing in our home away from home. Every inch of the cottage was remodeled with state of the art appliances, views from the entire main living area & kitchen, and a large bathroom with pedestal sink & a charming claw foot tub/shower combo. Plenty of off street parking, a large deck on which you may take in the views and a patio with fire pit allow you to live comfortably inside and out. With the beach only a half block away, it's literally your backyard!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: Our family has owned this little house since 2012 and painstakingly took the time to preserve the character and charm of the original structure. We live in San Luis Obispo and LOVE Avila Beach! We spend as much time as we can in this beautiful little beach town. Both originally from Southern California, we both relocated to San Luis Obispo while attending Cal Poly and never left. We've since raised 3 beautiful girls on the Central Coast and are blessed to call SLO & Avila home.

Why Avila Beach:
Our property is unique in that it's a charming old beach cottage built in the 1900's in which the Avila Family used to live. It's one of only a few original buildings that are left in Avila today. Fully renovated in 2013, the cottage has all of the modern amenities one needs to have a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Lastly, it seems the sun ALWAYS shines upon Avila...south facing and tucked between Pismo/Shell Beach & Los Osos/Morro Bay, this beach is often the only beach that has sun while the others are fogged in!
