Owner's reply: Hearts are meant to be shared and we are deeply touched that Sarah and her family shared theirs with us and Casa San Miguelito. We started this venture in hopes that we could create a beach home-away-from-home atmosphere in Avila Beach with CSM. But, above all, we wanted our guests to feel valued and special. We couldn't be more grateful for this amazing review from whom we now refer to as a cherished new friend. Avila Beach is the Crown of the Central Coast, but families like Sarah's are the gems that make it sparkle and delight. Thank you Sarah for choosing CSM and we hope to see you again soon!
