About David Schinkel

My husband and I completed construction on Tres Tesoros in 2006. We spent about a year designing the Tri-plex. We named the building Tres Tesoros after our three children. Each condo is named appropriately after one of them. We have Condo A... La Casita de Amelia, Condo B... is La Casita de Bailyn and lastly, Condo C is La Casita de Colton. We also have some other properties located just south of Pismo Beach in Oceano, CA. We also have several things in Colorado as well.

David Schinkel purchased this condo in 2006

Why David Schinkel chose Downtown

This is a 23 mile sandy, flat beach. There are tons of things the area has to offer, winter or summer! In the summer, people escape the heat of north, east or south. Tired of crowded and hassle-filled airports, delayed and cancelled flights, traffic, lines, and long hours on Greyhound in the sky? See if this sounds better . . . A two or three-hour drive along the Pacific ocean, through wine country to a little paradise called The Gold Coast. In beautiful Pismo Beach or Oceano, you will be in the middle of a 23-mile long crescent-shaped beach, walking distance to restaurants, shops, and the pier. You can paddle a kayak amidst the otters and pelicans, catch some waves on your long board, ride ATVs or horses on the sand, have a campfire and roast marsh mellows at night, or tour the wineries just minutes from downtown. And if you would rather just relax, there are plenty of places on the sand to put a blanket or chair and just watch the waves roll in.

What makes this condo unique

In addition to spring or summer, the locals know that the best-kept secret on the central coast is winter. It’s when the calm, clear and the quiet arrives and the crowds thin. On many days, if you didn’t look at the calendar, you would swear that it was summer. It’s why Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s at the beach is one of the smartest holiday decisions you can make. But book well in advance, because the secret is getting out!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the wonderful accommodations! We really enjoyed ourselves. We had a great time playing at the beach. We had daily walks to the Java Shack and pier... a great way to start each day. The kids loved Pismo Beach, the pier, the Butterfly Park, Avila Pier, Dinosaur Park, beach, the Avila Barn, ice cream shops and spending time with Grandpa Art. Thanks for everything! Brad, Terri, Clairissa, and Cooper.

La Quinta, CA

Nice new property with easy access to town and the beach

  • 4 of 5

This condo is nicely decorated. Very useable kitchen and nice to have access to the shared BBQ.

The king bedroom is very comfortable.

Nice having a half bath on the main floor.

The balcony on the main floor is nice with a peek-a-boo view of the ocean. Great views from the bedroom balconies.

Even though it’s between Hwy 101 and the PCH, Harlow is a quiet street with quiet neighbors.

The garage is spacious, including a nice full size washer and dryer. Nice to leave the car in the garage and walk to so many restaurants....especially on the weekends.

Would give it a 5 if there was beach access at the end of the street. Steps are about 2 blocks to the right or left. Not far, but takes some planning if you’re carrying chairs, cooler, etc.

We stayed as a couple and there was plenty of room. With a shared bath on the bedroom floor it would be good with a family with kids. Not so sure with 2 couples. A bit close.

We were so pleased with the ease and comfort of this home. We stayed in Unit A over the 4th of July week and the views of the fireworks from the unit’s balconies were amazing! We enjoyed the clean enviornment and what the home has to offer. You are welcomed with a spotless two car garage that offers a washer and dryer. The home is located in a phenomenal location which lends itself to walking everywhere which is a true luxury in a beach community. We will return again! In addition, the owners have excellent communication skills which made the entire process go as smoothly as possible! Sam

This place has it all!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a hidden jewel and full of delightful surprises! First of all, the Tres Tesoros condo is spacious, comfortable, and clean! There are decks and windows that afford views of the Pismo beach ocean and hills. It is bright and airy and in a great location.


- It is a block from the beach, so you can walk with your surfboard, boogie board, or sandals. No need for a car.

- It is a 20 minute bike ride to Avila beach, 40 min to San Luis Obispo and for the 3 weeks I was here I had no need for a car.

- There is a great gym across the street (Pismo Beach Athletic Club) where you can buy visits for as little as $6/visit which has a great weight room, racquet ball, spin and aerobic classes, and even a pickle ball court!

- It is walking distance to so many great restaurants that it's hard to list them all and do justice, but here are a few of our favorites:

-> Flagship. Casual seafood restaurant literally across the street with inexpensive food and cocktails. Fun for the kids (old and young)!

-> Penny's. Best breakfast you've ever had!

-> Chop Street. Great burger and beers!

-> Ventana. Fine dining with a million dollar view. We went two Saturdays in a row it was so good! You have to try the jalapeno margaritas!!!!

-> The Oyster Loft. On the water next to the Pismo Beach pier and one of the best meals we've ever had.

-> 10 min card ride from San Luis Obispo which has many incredible eateries and fun shops, as well as the biggest Farmer's Market you've ever seen (6-7 blocks long) on Thursdays from 6-9pm.

And to top it off the owner, Marian, is a great and gracious host!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Condo A and C. Everything was perfect. Everything you could think of was supplied in the kitchen and the bathrooms. Towels were large and soft, beds were comfortable. Location was with in walking distance to beach and restaurants. My only problem was the gas grill didn't have enough flame and was hard to start. Overall we had a great time and would book again.

Owner's Response: Good to know about the gas grill. If I had known before now, I would have had it serviced. I've got a service call in now! So by early this week, we should have much better flame! We try our very best to make sure our places are well maintained. Sometimes there are things that do occur while a guest is there and we always try our very best to remedy ASAP. Thanks and we look forward to having you choose one or multiple Treasures Vacation Rentals for your next visit to this little piece of paradise. Glad everyone had a wonderful time. This is what we strive for!

Great week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in Condo A for a week in August. The property exceeded our expectations - it was very roomy, clean, well stocked, beautifully decorated and comfortable. Location is very close to the beach and walking distance to the pier and many area restaurants. We hosted a large group for dinner and enjoyed the ocean view, well appointed kitchen and gas grill. We will definitely stay there again!
