Recent Reviews About This Property

"Clean, beautiful beach views, great location! "

Travis A. from Fresno, 04/10/2024

"Beautiful location! Very clean! Great time! Fantastic customer service! "

Travis A. from Fresno, 03/31/2024

"We’ve stayed in the adjacent unit several times and have always loved this spot. Consistently clean and well managed, great views and just all-around a favorite. Being over the market, it does tend to be a bit noisy, due to early morning opening, and the crowd hanging out at the tables in the ally during the day. This side is generally a little noisier than the north/west unit, we think. "

Tracey C. from Los gatos, 03/12/2024

"Overall a great place to stay. "

from Camarillo, 01/04/2024

"This is a must stay kind of place. Perfect view over a cute little shop. Very clean. I would recommend. "

Jessica A. from Rocklin, 08/07/2023

"Well appointed would definitely go back. "

Kristen M. from Walnut Creek, 06/21/2023

Perfect setting

"This rental is in the most perfect setting! You are across the parking lot from Avila, so you have a perfect view of the beach and the pier. The furniture was very nice and the bathroom looks newly renovated. Everything is very clean!! You are right on top of the shops of Avila beach. I would highly recommend!!"

Kristy M from Apple Valley, 08/25/2022

"Coastal Vacation Rental are extremely easy to utilize. The accomadations were excellant and the views and beach accesibility were fabulous."

Daryl N. from Bakersfield, 07/18/2022

"Our family vacation was filled with relaxed fun, sunny days, al fresco meals on the patio, and oceanfront views. The condo was clean and updated. Perfect for a family of four. Great oceanfront spot. Morning walks on the beach and evening strolls through town. This location was ideal and no car was needed the entire week of our vacation. Listening to the ocean and feeling the breezes from our flat all day and night made Avila Beach the perfect small town to reset, refresh, and slow down. The town shops and restaurants close early which aligns with the sleepy village vibe. Get creative with family fun ideas when staying in town. The crowds are small and folks are friendly, ice cream and shaved ice appear everywhere and surf rentals with boogie boards are easy to find. Not a big party town which is perfect for kids. Definitely a family spot for all ages including grandparents.

from Palo Alto, 07/03/2022

"We loved renting this condo. We also rented the connecting condo so our whole family could stay together. It was wonderful, clean, well stocked. Location could not have been better, did I say ocean front?
Can’t wait to come back."

Karen P. from San Martin, 06/26/2022

"We love how convenient and comfortable it was to stay here. Can't wait until next year!!"

Tricia N. from Stockton, 06/07/2022

"What an awesome place to stay. It was perfect!"

Tricia N. from Stockton, 06/06/2022

"Outstanding location, amenities and convenience. "

David G. from Granite Bay, 04/19/2022

"I've been staying here for a month each year for several years now and always love my stay! This year was especially fabulous due to all of the wonderful upgrades they made throughout the entire condo. We spend most of our time on the patio people watching but when we do tear ourselves away from the fabulous view of the beach, the condo is well stocked, comfy and perfect for our month long stay each year. The location can't be beat, it has everything anyone could need (especially love the new super warm blankets for sitting outside on the patio first thing in the morning), and the management company is fabulous helping out with any issues that might arise!"

Cheryl F. from Turtle Creek, 04/04/2022

"We had a wonderful time. Such a great layout and well stocked with the necessities. The house was clean the location is perfect!"

from Atwater, 03/08/2022

"Great location! Directions on how to get there and park are confusing but once you are there, it is fabulous! Beautiful and comfortable. "

Heather S. from San Jose, 02/15/2022

"The unit is immaculately clean. It has everything we could possibly need. Everything was comfortable and well taken care of. The perfect home away from home."

Stephana B. from Kimberling City, 01/15/2022

"Had a great time in this beachfront condo! Great customer service, easy check-in, very comfortable beds, super clean, everything we needed in the kitchen. Highly recommend."

Kristine N. from PHOENIX, 11/23/2021

"The condo is very clean and location is perfect.
Only thing I would change is the bed. It feels a little worn out for me. Other than that, I would stay again for the location."

Millie B. from American Canyon, 11/09/2021

"We had such a wonderful vacation! The condo was immaculate, the kitchen well stocked with all the pots, pans and utensils we needed to make all of our meals. What could be better than starting the day with coffee on the balcony looking right out at the ocean then heading to the beach (just steps away)? Coming back to the condo for a little reading and a short nap (drifted off to the sound of the waves) and then sipping Sangria while playing board games (again on the balcony)! We did manage to tear ourselves away one evening for a bonfire on the beach - just a short drive to Grover Beach for that - but really, we just never wanted to leave."

Barbara P. from Alameda, 09/27/2021

"We've stayed at 9 other condos or hotels in Avila over the years. This was front street, so was great to have the ocean view. the condo was ok. but that's as good as I can say. Many little things made our stay less than ideal, although we would book again. Just know that it's not turn key, noise from the market that you are above starts early and when its hot, and windows are open, you will hear it. I love all the places we've rented from coastal but this one seemed neglected. broken window knobs, back door lock issues, bbq not clean, and a few other small things that say this is a rental. Again, we are pretty forgiving and would still return, but knowing what to expect is good. one parking spot. two flights of stairs were no issue, just didnt expect it. "

Ray H. from Chico, 07/03/2021

"We a wonderful experience. So nice to have morning coffee on the deck watching the waves and beach goers. The place was very nicely decorated and clean. It was the perfect base for us for graduation weekend. We walked on the Bob Jones trail in the mornings and sipped wine on the deck in the evenings. There is some noise from the restaurant below, but it wasn't much of a bother for us. The staff were extremely helpful. "

from Bellevue, 07/01/2021

"My wife and I spent 3 nights in this lovely condo overlooking beautiful Avila Beach. The reservation was easily made by phone, and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful. I received a phone call advising us that the unit was ready a little early, along with the gate and key box codes. The unit itself is wonderfully located with a stunning view of the beach; you will love the sunsets! It was sparklingly clean and seems to have been recently painted. It’s well stocked, tastefully decorated and had a wonderful balcony with BBQ. Though you enter the parking area from the other side of the block, there is an alley on the left side of the unit, at the level of the stair landing, that will allow you to walk directly out to Front St. I definitely recommend this unit, but there are a few things you should know:
1. There are two flights of steep stairs you must climb to get to the unit. You should consider this if you have mobility issues, and think about how much you want to bring, as you will have to carry everything up.
2. No cable or local TV; streaming only. If you don’t have streaming accounts, you’re pretty much out of luck. This might not be a big deal to everyone, but we were there Super Bowl Sunday, and had to scramble to be able to watch the game. At this price, they should have cable.
3. There are no instructions for the thermostat. I hard can that be? We never could get the heater to run all weekend.

As I’ve said, I still recommend this unit. I only list these things so you go into a rental with as much information as possible. Only you can decide whether they should influence your decision. "

Richard S. from Hanford, 02/10/2021

"As always, the Condo and location were Great!
One complaint though, the Patio area each time I’ve come to stay, is Dirty! The walls around the Barbecue are splashed with food and grease as is sometimes the Grill as well.. The Floor looks always dirtier than the time before. It needs a good scrub at least after a couple renters. Also, the table and chairs never get used. A couple Loungers and small table would make much better use of that Beautiful area in my opinion. Hope this info is helpful in making this Location even Better! Thanks again, JKallunki "

Jason K. from Longview, 10/31/2020

"It’s going really well!"

Jason K. from Longview, 10/05/2020

"This was a great get away for our family. We had a wonderful time!!!"

Adriana D. from N/A, 10/01/2020

"In May my family of four enjoyed one week in Avila Beach at this property. The view is stunning, and the location was perfect. We woke up to fresh air and the sound of seagulls. We took invigorating walks on the beach in the early morning before the crowds set in. Our vacation was prior to the holiday and summer rush and it felt as if we had the entire town to ourselves.
The unit design lends itself to a surprisingly private patio for sunbathing and al fresco meals. The evening sunsets from the deck were brilliant and we could hear the ocean at night ...putting us to sleep with calming waves.
We had all the conveniences and were only a few steps to the beach and stores. We also had the safety of social distancing we were looking for. Simply, we never needed to leave our private beach front unit and still enjoyed everything Avila Beach has to offer.
The management team were extremely helpful and available to answer our questions anytime we called. The unit is well kept. We hope to return later in the season.

from Palo Alto, 06/25/2020

"Great space for a small group to enjoy Avila! Fun to be able to walk across to the beach anytime. We enjoyed the deck and grill! A little bit of noise in the morning from the restaurant below, but not a big deal for us. Property Manager was extremely helpful and friendly. It was fun!"

from Danville, 06/18/2020

"We had a wonderful time in Avila. The unit fronts the ocean which you can enjoy off the back deck. The property manager was great, very easy to work with. We would definitely stay here again."

William G. from Alamo, 06/06/2020

"Although during our stay the country closed down due to Covid19 it was a relaxing place to watch the world slow down to a grinding stop. This is my 4th year staying here for the Month of March and I was as happy as ever. My biggest joy was finding that they have a fabulous new grill on the deck. The kitchen is well set up for cooking all of our meals there which was great since all the restaurants were closed (but the wonderful market/deli right underneath us remained opened which was nice). We sadly cut our trip short because we were afraid planes would stop flying by the end of our month there but we are looking forward to getting back to your little piece of paradise again next year!"

Cheryl F. from Turtle Creek, 04/03/2020

Great Condo, Beautiful Town

"This condo sits front and center on the beautiful ocean in the town of Avila. What an amazing view!!! Loved waking up to the sound of waves and watching small town living right below us. Our deck sitting over the Market below provided a delightly view. Sunsets were extraordinay! Avila is a delightful small town with a friendly coastal vibe, cool shops, and plenty of nearby places of interest. The beach is amazing. It's the perfect size for walks and relaxing in the warm sun. This 2BR, 2 Bath unit had everything we needed. As I sat comfortably in the living room, my friend cooked a lot for her son who attends nearby CalPoly U and the kitchen was well equiped for every meal. We grilled a couple times on the very nice gas grill too. The beds were very comfortable and the baths had nice modern showers and baths. Towels were quality as were the bed linens. The condo is in a safe, gated community with a private parking space. Enjoyed every minute of our time here. It was fun to walk around Avila and to explore fantastic nearby San Luis Obispo and the central California coast from our Avila base. Highly recommend!"

Colleen F from Bedford, TX, 01/13/2020

Response from Coastal Vacation Rentals:

Thank you so much for your kind words, we are so pleased you enjoyed yourselves! Hope to see you again soon. - CVR Staff

"What’s not to like. Beautiful view of the beach, sunset and hear the waves crashing. We have stayed in this condo several times. "

Nancy S. from Bakersfield, 12/11/2019

"Amazing location! Home is very well furnished and equipped!"

Jason K. from Longview, 10/30/2019

"Rental was very good. Management company personnel were courteous, but, were not knowledgeable of property and unable to help with entry problems and this did not start the stay effectively."

thomas l. from Roseville, 08/23/2019

"Annual Family Beach Vacation"

Julie & Jack L. from Santa Rosa, 08/03/2019

"We had a wonderful time. The condo is oceanfront with great views, perfect location, incredibly well stocked with everything you could need, beautifully decorated with lots of linens, comfy beds and pillows, nice bathrooms and kitchen. Again it's perfect! I would highly recommend staying here. The property managers are great and I can't wait to stay again!"

Lisa H. from Arroyo Grande, 04/10/2019

"This is my 3rd year in a row staying for a month & each year I check out counting the days until my next stay! Location couldn’t be better, the beds are so comfy, the kitchen well stock & each year I notice upgrades to the apartment that are fabulous! This year I loved the new shades, pillows, art work in one of the bedrooms, mirror & basket of blankets. Thank you for adding to my yearly joy! 360 days til I’m back!!!!"

Cheryl F. from Turtle Creek, 04/05/2019

"Beautiful condo where you can experience sunrise and sunset overlooking Avila Bay. Nicely furnished and convenient to many activities including hiking,biking, wine tasting and relaxing. Will definitely be back! The property managers were fabulous as well."

from Danville , 11/27/2018

"The Unit was very clean and well equipped. Great location and view.
The refrigeraton unit from the store below ran 24-7! Also, there was construction with loud sawing, hammering, and drilling going on. The managment co was quick to respond and give us a $50 gift card."

penny g. from Laguna Beach, 10/18/2018

"We stayed two nights at this location over the weekend. It was a perfect spot for my husband and 2 year old son. It has a beautiful view and we loved falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean. It is right about above a market and restaurant which is so convenient! Got a little noisy during opening and closing times and when you walk out it’s near the garbage but we didn’t mind. Look forward to coming back! "

Nicole A. , 10/09/2018

"Great location----wish it had better parking.....overall we would love to go again..."

Evelyn S. from Bakersfield, 08/14/2018

"Beautiful, ocean front condo. "

Jodie M. from Anchorage, 07/08/2018

"Stayed here for an extended weekend and had a great time. The condo is very clean and even though it is only a two bedroom it is really roomy and you never feel cramped. The patio is cherry on top for this place."

from Fresno, 05/22/2018

"Outstanding! We had a great time"

from Santa Maria, 05/11/2018

"We had another fabulous month stay at this cute little condo and can't wait to come back next year for another month. It was fun to see nice upgrades from last years stay; new bed & dresser in the guest room, several new lamps throughout. I love a vacation rental that keeps itself updated and this little gem overlooking the beach does just that. After staying in at least 6 other places in Avila throughout the past 15 years this is our "Spot"from now it! "

Cheryl F. from Turtle Creek, 04/05/2018

"My daughter goes to school nearby so her sister and farther and I met her in Avila beach and stayed at this great rental. Very up to date and roomy. Slept 4 easily and close to great restaurants, walking hiking and across the street from the beach! Wonderful. The family has decided to make this stay an annual event! The management company was so good to work with! "

Pamela W. from Atwood, 12/16/2017

"Had a wonderful time in Avila and this was a great place, perfect location and with a beautiful view of the ocean. "

Linda R. from Vancouver, 11/08/2017

"We absolutely love this place. We’ve been going to Avila for over 30 years and you can’t stay in a better place. One recommendation would be to make sure the area by the stairs and behind the grocery store is kept clean. We experienced a lot of flies by the stairs and the odor wasn’t pleasant."

from Bakersfield, 11/03/2017

"Good not have been better. Great location."

from Claremore, 09/27/2017

"Very positive. We've been coming to this same location for many years. We noticed there were more supplies than in the past. That was very helpful. "

Julie & Jack L. from Santa Rosa, 08/04/2017

"The unit was awesome!!! Clean, quiet and it couldn't be in a better location. The office staff was very helpful, even having items we forgot shipped there. Only complaint would be to get a lock box on the unit. There is really no logic making people drive to Pismo to pick up keys. Other than that, it was an absolutely perfect!"

Steve A. from Mesa, 05/30/2017

"Property was beautiful. Very clean with great beds and pillows. Great location to beach, shops and restaurants. Everything about the place was amazing."

Jennifer R. from Martinez, 04/09/2017

"We had such a fabulous month at this cute little place that we are coming back again next year! You can't beat the location and the deck, right across the street from the beach, is a perfect place to start and end your day with a smile on your face! "

Cheryl F. from Turtle Creek, 04/03/2017

"The biggest complaint I have, that could very likely keep me from renting this unit again is that the (2) small beds in the second bedroom are HORRIBLY hard & noisy. Even the lady who works downstairs at the market asked me about it. She had the same experience and said she would never stay again and she was there for FREE!
The frame creeks every time you move. Our backs hurt the rest of the trip.
The main bedroom bed was good. TV size is also very small in livingroom, but this would not keep me from coming back.
Beautiful view, very clean, well stocked.
Great service from property management company!!! "

Kathy C. from La Crescenta, 10/19/2016

Response from Coastal Vacation Rentals: I am so sorry you were so uncomfortable. I am pleased to tell you we are replacing those beds. Thank you for your comments.

"Fabulous place!"

Anita W. from Orcutt, 10/11/2016

Susan B. from Corral de Tierra, 08/10/2016

"We had a delightful stay at this lovely apartment. We will definitely be back!"

from Truckee, 05/19/2016

"We are wondering when to expect our deposit back. It has been almost 3 weeks and it seems that it should be here by now."

Claire A. from San Rafael, 06/01/2010

"Wrong sized sheets for the sofabed in the living room, but otherwise a perfect weekend and great rental. Loved the rooftop patio and bbq!"

from Chatsworth, 04/29/2010

"It was a great place for us to relax with a beautiful view & everything we needed at our fingertips. Avila Beach is a wonderful little beach town with cute shops & friendly people."

Norma R. from Geyserville, 04/23/2010

"We had a wonderful stay as usual.Probably can use some new towels."

from Northridge, 12/06/2009

"We just worried too much about the counter tops and sinks. They're beautiful but..."
