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.
