Avila Beach condo description

Avila Beach is the place to be on the central coast! Don't miss out on staying in this amazing 2 bedroom full size condo. A hotel room just won't be enough when you want to relax and stretch out after some fun in the sun.

There is no need to drive around Avila when you can stay in a wonderful 2 bedroom condo that is fully furnished to meet your needs. You can stay at Avila Beach Vacation Rentals at the top of San Luis Street. No need to stress about driving or parking, just stay with us. Once you stay in our vacation rental, you will wonder why you ever stayed in a hotel because there is just no comparison.

Our townhouse style rental sits on top of the hill as you come into Avila beach. It is spacious and has 2 bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths. The rentals have a deck in front with a gorgeous ocean view where you can sit and listen to the sound of the waves crash on the beach. The 2 story units have a 2 car garage with automatic opener. Inside, they are fully furnished and can be rented for a few days or a few weeks. We also have an on-site coin operated laundry facility for your convenience. It is an easy 2 block walk down to the ocean. The beach is perfect for swimming, surfing, laying in the sun or people watching. Lifegaurds are on duty during weekends, summer months and holidays.

We have rental units available year round and you can stay for a couple of nights to a few months in the Fall/ Winter season. The rentals are the same size (1200 sq. feet) so there is room to stretch out. No more crowding into a small hotel room! Imagine the comfort of your very own full sized condo with your own deck to enjoy the ocean. Each condo has 2 bedrooms and there is a queen bed in each bedroom. The bedrooms are all downstairs. In the living room upstairs, there is a sofa sleeper. Bedding for all beds, including the sofa sleeper, is provided.

The entire downtown area of Avila Beach has recently been rebuilt. It includes a fun new childrens park, a small grocery store and deli as well as new restaurants and stores. It is no longer a rundown little town. It is beautiful, upscale and the place to be. The weather is warm year round and it is consistently much warmer and less foggy than Pismo Beach. The California Central Coast is waiting for you.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We have had ties to Avila Beach since we were very young. Jan's family has owned property in the town since the mid 1950's. Once Danny met Jan, he also began spending a great deal of time in Avila and he loved it also. For many years, there was no building allowed in town because of a lack of water but once that changed, we built our beautiful apartments. We wanted to share the beauty and tranquility of the area with others. The warm summer days, balmy winter days, calm evenings and beautiful views are too good not to share. Avila Beach has a very special place in our heart. We are sure it will hold special memories for you also. We built our rental (completed in November 2005) with you in mind- comfortable, open, bright and welcoming. We hope you enjoy the area as much as we do. We will do our best to see to it that you do! Danny and Jan Kleinsmith and Family

                  Why the Owner Chose Avila Beach:
                  We built this property to provide a nice place for people to enjoy the area.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Not only do you have a gorgeous ocean view from the outside deck but it is within walking distance to the beach or anyplace else in Avila Beach. This unique village is only 13 blocks in size. You can walk to the grocery store or the children's park or to any of the local restuarants. We are not a property management agency. We are the property owners and we will give you the attention you deserve. We care about our property and we care about our guests.
