About the property

Four Bedroom Beach On Private Lane Across From Beach. Walk To Everything

This is the consummate beach house in location and design, inside and out. Although the address is on Avila Beach dr., it is accessed from the private Beach Colony lane. This unique and spacious home sleeps ten and more very comfortably. On the main level the great room, dining area, and kitchen all open out a huge view deck for wave watching,relaxing and bbq's. The great room features a beautiful rock fireplace and 14' vaulted ceilings. The kitchen is defined by a large 8' x 4' granite island with ample seating for conversation and informal snacking. This combination of spaces allows everyone to belly-up, kick back, watch the beach, bbq, hob-nob and share the day's adventures while watching the cooks prepare surf and turf. Off of the kitchen are a huge well-stocked pantry and spacious laundry room.

While the main level encourages gatherings and fun, there are two more decks facing the ocean. A small one off of the master bedroom and an 18' x 14' roof deck complete with mini kitchen. The roof deck is perfect for sunset margaritas or a chilled glass of chardonnay from the fridge while you bbq spicy local sausages and k-bobs. The roof deck is accessed by a user-friendly interior stairway. Up top the view is avila panoramic.

The master bedroom features a granite bath and walk-in shower, windows with views of the ocean, a king bed and large walk in closet. The other two upstairs bedrooms each have window seats from which you can look out over the golf course across the street, and all of the upstairs rooms are vaulted and spacious. One of the upper bedrooms features a queen bed and the other a bunk bed and separate single for the kids. Every window offers views of classic avila: the surrounding hills, the distant hotel, the homes above the beach, and the beach side shops and restaurants.

The downstairs bedroom opens out to a small patio and the green beauty of the golf links across the street.

Although the bathroom openings are not wheel chair accessible width, there are stair lifts from the garage to the main level and from the main level to the second floor.

The two car garage below is large enough to easily hold two vehicles and there is room for two more vehicles onsite just off of beach colony lane. There is an outdoor shower to rinse the salt water and sand from body and wet suits. You can pack the wagon with folding chairs, ice chest, blankets, boogie boards and umbrella for the short stroll to the sand. There is a variety of beach toys from which to choose as well. If you get to beach and forgot your camera the walk back to the house takes all of three minutes. The terminus for the avila trolley which runs to shell beach and back is just out the front door, and the bob jones bike trail starts just across the street and runs to slo, shell, and the five cities. You can literally walk across the street and bike to rural wineries and city shops and restaurants.

About John Day

We moved to Cayucos a number of years back from a Colorado ski town. It took a long time for us to realize that the coastal maritime climate brings fog and wind and temperatures that are usually a little cool. Since it never snowed and the temperature hardly ever went down into the 40's, we were happy. Sometime later we moved to San Luis for the school system, and discovered it's particular inland climate. Not much fog and consistently warm sunny days. We liked the beach, but not so much the fog. We thought that you can't have one without the other. Then we happened upon Avila. A couple of years ago we bought this lot to build and sell a spec home. We soon realized that Avila enjoys a San Luis-like warm and clear inland climate and it is on the water as well. We still live in San Luis, but we think more and more these days of living in Avila.

John Day purchased this house in 2015

Why John Day chose Central Coast

You don't find a lot of homes like this one, so close to the water in the best little gem of a beach town between LA and San Francisco. We thought we'd better try to hang on to it.

What makes this house unique

An excellent example of beach house architecture. It is unique from any angle inside and out. It literally has something for everyone no matter who comes along. Large comfortable gathering spaces with big screens to watch the game. Large decks to relax and enjoy the sun and sunset. Enjoy the latest concert across the street at the event center from the roof deck while you bbq.

Car: recommended

Avila beach is a great base from which to explore and enjoy a host of different experiences unique to the central coast communities.

In avila we have a lot to offer sports-persons of every level of every interest. On one hand just out the door we have the pacific ocean: surfing and wave sports, surf casting and deep water fishing, whale watching, sailing and jet skis and jets skis and paddle boarding, and kayaking. And beach sports like reading and paddle ball and shelling, volleyball, and walking, and watching the kids chase sea gulls.

Turning to inland pursuits, if you are a cycling enthusiast you can leave your car in the garage and bike to shell and pismo beachs, edna valley wineries, downtown san luis obispo. There are bike lanes out to los osos and morro bay as well.

There are basketball courts in the park, and hiking trails leading up into the hills and along the coast. You can run or bike from avila as long as you want and find good scenery and interesting trails and roads.

Even better then pictured.

  • 5 of 5

Such a great location. We were thrilled with the home away from home. We had everything we needed plus more. The pictures don't really do it justice. We had a blast. We will be back and we recommend John Day and his beautiful home to everyone.

Great Family Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay and we'll be back next year! Avila is such a delightfully small and intimate beach getaway and this home does not disappoint. We had eleven members of our family ranging from 4-69 and all had a ball. Easy walking distance to the boardwalk and the beach. You will love it!

Awesome vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We do a family vacation every year and this was by far our best! The home afforded privacy for all 12 of us. The kitchen was centralized and well stocked. All bedrooms were beautifully decorated and comfortable with TV in each room. My husband loved the rooftop patio where he enjoyed his morning coffee. There was plenty of deck space for everyone to sit and watch the world go by. The location was perfect for our teenage grandchildren to walk to town and the beach. The owner, John was delightful and extremely accommodating. We've already booked this beautiful home again for our annual vacation next year.

Wonderful Location and Amazing Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We loved the spacious main floor with the huge kitchen and living areas to enjoy our family reunion. BBQs on the deck and walks on Avila Beach made our family reunion full of great memories. Thanks for providing everything we needed, from skimboards to beach towels. We loved this house and know other families and groups will make great memories here too.

Wonderful home away from home!

We truly enjoyed our stay at Avila Beach. This home was all that was promised- close to the beach and main street businesses, spacious and well-equipped for our stay. We hope to come and visit again!

Perfect location and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

We held a family reunion with seven adults and three young kids. Immaculate home with an open floor plan. One and a half blocks to Front Street. Really appreciated all the extra attention to details - the beach towels and equipment available for renters was a nice touch. Five parking spaces were invaluable on a holiday weekend when there was a Farmers' Market, Tequila Festival and Blues Festival. And all the choices that this property affords... want to hang out on a deck? Choose between the "roof deck", main floor deck, or master bedroom deck. John appoints the property with high quality electronics, furniture and appliances. Made our visit to our favorite beach town even more enjoyable.
