In winter, not many restaurants are open direct to the see, but the only one that is (the Custom House), is very good, with nice food and great service. There are also 4-5 tasting rooms in the little town which are nice to sample the local wines.
... are really special surprise. Having two days to chill now has given the kids much deserved rest and the first chance to really play in the surf as the water is not as bone chilling this far south, though still pretty cold. The pool and jacuzzi were very welcome after some surf time. Time here has also allowed for some packing our supplies for our two nights at the Channel Island National Park on Santa Cruz island. Should be very unique ...
... the moon is either full, or almost full so I have enough light to see that our site directly faces the Pacific Ocean. There are tenters in the site across from us, then there’s a fence, then a cliff, then the ocean! There it is! I’ve never seen anything like it. It was amazing. Then I look at our camper and I’m not exaggerating when I say, it looks like we’re poised to roll right into the ocean. Our site is on such an incline, I immediately ...
... we left and drove to a winery that Alana had to speak to about a wine evening she is hosting on Friday. Then we headed back and had a snooze. Around 6pm we got up and were thinking of starting dinner which we should have started earlier as Karen, Dale and their friend Claire arrived at 6.30pm. Whist they dug into the snacks, we got busy making chilli and at 7.30pm we all sat down to eat, drink and be merry. Alana made a nice carrot cake with a strange orange ...
... we are likely to cruise this area of Central America for some time and see where we end up toward the end of the season. As our good friend Terry says Goals in Concrete... Plans in Sand.
Renan and I are likely to go to El Salvador for a short surf and sight seeing trip and to visit Diego in San Salvador, he may come back with us and come sailing for a while. I hope so.
Well that is about it for now we will update pic soon.

TravelPod Member ReviewsInn at Avila Beach
We booked an ocean view room and were not disappointed. We had room 207. Each room has it's own guest book, which is a nice idea. The balcony overlooking the pier, mountain and ocean is comfortable. The roof patio is great to hang out and enjoy. It was a pity we couldn't stay much longer.

Historical Traveler Reviews Inn at Avila Beach
Best value around
Treat you and your family just like their own, received extra blankets, water, popcorn and great views!
Loved this place... right on the beach!
I booked this place on Hotwire for a very low price without knowing any of the details and was so pleasantly surprised when we got there! The hotel is family owned and operated, and all of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Adjacent to the lobby is a living room area with games and videos available for check out. We had booked a standard room and the room was very nice - clean and well decorated. I would suggest upgrading to one of the oceanfront suites as they don't cost much more but have many more amenities & a view. I have two recommendations - first of all, if you plan to stay here in March, be prepared for colder weather! The second recommendation is that you stay at this hotel if you want to relax and enjoy the beach, as the town is small and there is not much to do in terms of restaurants and bars. Overall, however, this hotel is an amazing bargain, I highly recommend it and would stay there again anytime!
Best place on the coast
my wife and I found this place by accident. Just a cute little Inn right on the beach. Great ocean front rooms. Could have sat on our balcony for a week just watching the ocean. The place is a very quiet with no phones, restaurants, etc. If you want a ton of services stay at a Holiday Inn. If you want a small little Inn to curl up with a good book then check this place out.
Best secret on Central Coast
This is the nicest little hotel on the Central Coast, as long as you stay in the ocean front rooms. The beach below the hotel is one of the few wind-protected beaches on the Central Coast -- that makes it a great place to sit and read a book and look out over the beautiful bay at Avila. This is a (step-by-step) renovated hotel. They have a nice little art shop, and the rooms are very well done with Sante Fe style decor. However, the back rooms in the hotel are rather miserable, and have no view, and you might as well be in a Motel 6. But they have a rooftop deck (windy, though).In a ddition, Pirate's Cove is just over the hill, with nice views, a nice swimming beach, and (if you like that sort of thing) a nudist end of the cove.Lastly, the proximity to Sycamore Springs hot tubs can not be overemphasized. These are the nicest mineral springs in the state (with the possible exception of Esalen). And you can rent a hot tub by the hour.So, my favourite holiday is ocean front room at this hotel, beach at Avila Beach (south end of the beach), dinner in San Luis Obispo, hot tubs at Sycamore Springs. You can't beat that for a getaway, beleive me.
We stayed at the Inn at Avila Beach for one night in early October 2003. The location was superb - just across from a great beach. The owner was very helpful and friendly. The room was excellent, sitting room proved to be a great addition to the room with TV / Video and CD players all available.
The only downside was the bathroom which I thought was in need of renovation.
Overall a great place to stay. Would highly recommend it.
It's not for everyone ..okay by me...it's mine
I had two friends tell me about their new secert hideout above SB ...i laughed because it was same place ..secert out girls ...No phones/no elevator..they stay at Biltmore so i didn't know i would like it (afford it)..It's like a friends beach house.eerything from robes /popcorn /movies library ,deck on roof is outrageous you can bbq,blenders,tv/vcrs on roof overlooking ocean.everyone that stayed our weekend was raving on how they had found it ..every room has a book of guests who had stayed before all were raves ..its not Ritz its fun /little /maybe alot strange but very unique ..rooms are all different so ask to see several at checkin ..
Our family spent 2 nights here and we found them to be very relaxing.
The rooftop cabanas that are at your disposal are definately the best place to spend the day. Great views and space to relax! The room that we had was far from luxury. The decor was outdated and was in need of a remodel but it was roomie (family suite) for the family to spread out.
The bathroom is very small and again needed to be remodeled. I took a peek in the oceanfront rooms and the all seemed to be updated and remodeled. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and I will go back for its casual atmosphere, friendly staff and relaxation!
Not up to expectations
Three flights up, no elevator... no telephone in room and no cell phone service... heater in room would not turn off... cold water was burning hot, hot water was tepid... construction right below us in the courtyard beginning at 8a.m. You guess what we were thinking as we left!
Last great place left
saw story in LA Magazine about this incredible place on the beach ...they were wrong it's better ...popcorn in rooms /movies in library ..lots fun extras ..checkout roof top deck ..its on their website ... you hear ocean all night ..we watched movie on the roof /bbq appetizers /meet great folks yeah on the roof overlooking ocean how cool is that !!
