Near one of the most scenic and undiscovered beaches in California sits Avila Hot Springs. This rustic retreat sits atop natural mineral hot springs. Those springs supply the water for the mineral pool and also provide heat for the fresh water pool. The property includes both cabin and dry camping options for guests. This kid friendly spot is a good choice for travelers looking for a unique stay.
Avila Beach is a quiet beach town located just off Highway 1 and Highway 101 on California’s Central Coast. Avila Hot Springs is situated a few miles further inland. Visitors are invited to disconnect and recharge during their time. Those wanting to venture out will find the popular Avila Valley Barn nearby. It offers seasonal produce, baked goods and a petting area for the kids. San Luis Obispo is a short 10-minute drive away.
Vacation rental cabins provide comfortable options year-round for visitors. Each one has one queen bed and two bunk beds. This allows for up to six people in each unit. They also have a kitchen, living area and dining space. With a refrigerator, microwave and basic cable, these Cavco manufactured cabins are the right amount of “roughing it.” Dry tent camping and spaces for RVs up to 25 feet are also available.
Cabins are stocked with cookware, dishware and flatware. Bedding is provided for up to four guests in each unit. There is a laundromat on site for visitors. The best amenities at Avila Hot Springs are the springs themselves. And the pool with its double slide brings out the kid in everyone. The mineral waters are purported to have healing properties. The property also offers massage and facial services. And there are beach cruiser bike rentals available on-site, perfect for a ride along the Bob Jones Trail to the beach.
