A Super All-Suites Inn Overlooking Warm and Sunny Avila Beach
Central California beaches often appeal to families and couples looking for a less crowded vacation or holiday getaway. Avila Beach and the Avila Lighthouse Suites may be just what they are seeking.
Close to the beach
The Avila Lighthouse Suites, in the charming little town of Avila Beach is just a few steps from some of the finest sand and ocean views on the quiet Central Coast.
If we were to run a “best boutique California town” contest, Avila Beach would be a top contender.
A most advantageous location
Tucked away between larger San Luis Obispo and Pismo Beach, the quaint town of Avila Beach is easily accessible from busy Highway 101 that is just a few short minutes away.
Avila Beach boasts two generous piers, chic beachside restaurants, avant-garde art galleries, and more than a few seductive wine-tasting venues that are closely related to the up and coming wine growing region just to the east of the ocean.
More about the Avila Lighthouse Suites
There are 54 nautically inspired two-room accommodations at the Avila Lighthouse Suites.
This “suites” property is also properly labeled a “resort.” It has many bonus embellishments including a heated outdoor pool, putting green, life-size checkers board, a fitness room, and an affiliation with The Spa Central Coast, which provides on-site spa services to pamper and soothe the weary you – and let us never forget that all this is just a few steps from the beach.
A great place for children
Kids love “The Suites,” because everything is easy little-leg distances from the rooms. There is also a safe feel about the property. Adults like it for the same reasons.
It’s also a B&B
The Avila Lighthouse Suites serves a daily complimentary extended continental breakfast to get you started on your busy days.
Around the “Suites”
Whether it’s exploring the shops and boutiques along the Avila Beach Promenade, pedaling along the Bob Jones bike trail, or playing a round of golf at one of the three nearby courses you and your company will enjoy the activities around this little section of paradise.
This is also a great beach for jogging in the sand, and if you do, don‘t forget to cool down by wandering out onto one of the two town piers that stretch out into the blue Pacific.
Stop for a few minutes and indulge your senses with some fresh ocean air and the voice of waves stroking the long and delicious shore.
Or just be lazy
If all of that sounds like a little too much activity, each suite comes with an ocean view from your private patio or veranda from which you can personally interact with the soul of La Mer, or catch up on your reading, or just laze away the day.
Beach town hotels and resorts are not always conducive to restful nights. Have you ever spent your holiday in a room next to the “Animal House” alumni?
The Avila Lighthouse Suites has a published “Pleasant Stay Policy.” In consideration of all its guests, there are no pets, smoking, or parties allowed in the guestrooms. Ahh, the serenity of undisturbed sleep.
The Lighthouse almost next door
If it is open, something you won’t want to miss on your visit to Avila Beach is a tour of the Point San Luis Lighthouse. It is just a short drive from the Suites. We will be posting photographs and writing about this famous lighthouse and its importance to the Central California Coast in an upcoming article. Stay tuned.
We recommend the Avila Lighthouse Suites as a great place to spend a family vacation or a romantic weekend getaway.
