A Local's Guide to Avila Beach vacation rentals

Avila Beach is a slice of Californian paradise, with white beaches stretching as far as the eye can see, and quaint vacation rentals dotted on the hillside. The town is nestled in a picturesque valley, with the ocean in front and rolling hills providing a beautiful backdrop, making it the perfect destination for those that want to get away from busy day to day life. Many people are drawn to the small-town vibe the area has, and with only 1000 residents, it certainly is small. Despite its size, there are still a great many hotels and condo rentals in Avila which will allow you to explore the rugged, undeveloped beauty of this part of the Californian coast.

Another draw is the beach itself, sheltered from the wind by Point San Luis, it often has a warmer climate than some of the surrounding beaches. This makes Avila Beach condo rentals a popular option. Although small, there are still plenty of other things to keep visitors entertained apart from the beach. Why not take a walk through the stunning Avila Valley down the Bob Jones Trail, or stretch your legs on a walk to Point San Luis Lighthouse. The town has many hiking and biking options, whether you just want a short walk to the beach, or a longer hike along the San Luis Creek, the town has options for all. Alternatively, hire a bike from one of the shops in town and explore the area on two wheels.

There are a range of attraction in town, a favorite being the Central Coast Aquarium. The aquarium allows you to see marine life up-close, and learn about the local habitats and ecosystems. The regular farmers' markets are also a big draw, with a huge amount of fresh produce, food booths, family entertainment, and much more.

Avila Beach shares much of its history with the surrounding San Luis Obispo County, and like its neighboring town, has become a hotspot for a getaway -- especially thanks to the large number of Avila Beach vacation rentals that have sprung up along the ocean and in San Luis Obispo.

If you are looking for a place to rest your head at night, you will find many rentals in Avila Beach. There are hotels so close to the water that you will be able to smell the ocean, such as the San Luis Bay inn, which is only a few steps to the sand. A vintage beach house rental is a great option for a larger family or group of friends thanks to the shared living space, or a townhouse rental a short walk to the town center means that you will have quick access to all the attractions. Most of the shops along Main Street have an Avila Beach rental house above them, or you could go for something bigger a little away from Main Street, such as a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom town home 1.5 blocks from the sea. Rentals offer a range of amenities, from pools to shared living rooms. There is even a resort set on top of an ancient natural mineral springs.

If you can’t find the ideal rental in Avila Beach California, then nearby Pismo beach is another option. A classic beach town, the area has a white beach and spectacular sunset views at night, as well as an award-winning boardwalk. There are many accommodation options here as well, and for a large group, a Pismo Beach 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo is a must.
