A relaxing stay at an elegant, romantic hotel just steps from the beach, with welcome treats and plenty of other perks
California or Mexico? Land or sea? If you can’t bear to choose, don’t. Simply head to this coastal property that gives you a bit of everything.
Avila La Fonda Hotel plants south-of-the-border aesthetics right in the
heart of San Luis Obispo County, a few blocks from the Bob Jones Trail
and less than one block from the bay. When not hanging around the
Saltillo-tiled common area, by the massive rock fireplace, you’ll be out
and about, on a hike or a whale-watching tour.
If you haven’t
tried sea kayaking or Avila Beach golfing (a lot like regular golfing,
just with sweeping ocean views), now’s the time. Classes in the former
are available through a popular provider in nearby Shell Beach, while
there’s a par-71 golf course within a three-minute drive. Sport fishing
and trolley touring aren’t far, either. And if you haven’t tried the
delicious pie from Avila Valley Barn, you’ll have no trouble fitting in a
tasting. In fact, there’s one at the hotel every night, following the
afternoon Mexican chip-and-salsa bar and evening Cali-wine reception.
Good to know
This property is adults-only, and guests must be over the age of 21 to stay here.
