About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Well, We finally did it. The great remodel of 2015 is completed and ready to enjoy just in time for the 2015 summer season. We took the beach house from the 50's and brought it into the new century. Torn down to studs, everything is brand new with all of the great upgrades including quartzite counter-tops, all new appliances, new cabinets throughout, solid wood doors, cool flooring, awesome lighting fixtures, ETC.

My favorite place is the large covered deck overlooking the ocean. You can hear the sounds, smell the mist and enjoy the views of this one of a kind California Cove called Avila Beach. If you have been here before, you will not believe the transformation. Super clean and comfortable for up to 6 people.

We are only a few blocks from all of the Avila downtown action, yet we are still out of the crowds and commotion. Great for relaxing when you want to chill at the house, but still only a short walk to the beach, coffee shops, restaurants, bars and ice cream shops.

We offer two off-street parking spots which is critical on most every weekend.

From the downstairs master bedroom there is a courtyard under the ocean side deck, ideal for relaxing and taking in a good read.

If you are looking for a great stay in 4 star quality, our beach house is the place to be. Should you have any questions feel free to contact me anytime.

About Mario

My family and I first fell in Love with Avila Beach in the Mid 90's when we moved to San Luis Obispo County. We always wanted to be a part of Avila, but it was so hard own anything as there are so few properties worth buying in our price range. Our friend was living in this one and the Landlord called him up informing him she was going to sell. He called me and the rest is history.

Mario purchased this house in 2006

Why Mario chose Avila Beach

I think it has everything a beach house should. Great character when you are there and only 1 short block to the sand when you want to enjoy the beach. Your in the action but out of the action at the same time.

A perfect stay in Avila

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO is a great find - beautifully restored and very comfortable. It's great to hear the waves crash, so soothing! The kitchen has everything you need to prepare any meal, the deck and living area are very comfortable, and you can't beat the view. Good sized bedrooms and comfortable beds. We will be back! Thanks Mario!

We all had a wonderful stay...the home was very comfortable and most importantly clean and safe. All of the amenities from home were provided so we did not need to purchase many extras. The home is perfectly located, we walked to the beach and into town each day! The view was beautiful and being able to hear the waves crashing on the beach was incredible!

We played cards on the huge patio table, bbq'd on the grill, read books and watched TV in a well appointed, super comfortable and nicely decorated home.

We rented bikes and spent a day cruising to all of the nearby sights, including a petting zoo!

Mario was always available to answer our questions and we are already looking forward to staying at your beautiful home again next year! Thank you!!!!

Perfect Beach House for a long weekend

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home with outstanding views and location. Close enough to walk to the beach, shops and restaurants, but far enough from the commotion of the crowds. Mario was easy to work with and an outstanding host. Plus, off-street parking is a great plus. We will be back (hopefully)!

Stylish Beach House - Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Mario's beach house. The view of the Ocean and fantastic sunsets on the outdoor deck was our favorite part. We also enjoyed watching the hummingbirds from the deck. The house is located very close to the coffee shops, restaurants and beach. The off street parking was a plus because parking can get tight on the streets. The house was very nicely appointed with an impressive kitchen and comfortable beds. Everything we needed was provided. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Avila Beach.
