In May 2015, the resort completed a $6 million renovation of the Meadows Clubhouse and introduced Seasons Restaurant with indoor/outdoor dining daily along with a variety of dining options that include:
Chef’s Table: An interactive, family-style setting within the working kitchen, this venue can seat up to 12 guests and offers an exciting, “behind-the-scenes” look at the energy and choreography that fuels a gourmet restaurant.
Kitchen Counter: A unique venue to watch Executive Chef Sudar prepare a five-course “Taste the Senses” tasting menu, this back-of-the-house counter gives six guests a “front-row” seat.
Private Dining Room: For larger groups, this well-appointed room can seat up to 32 guests and is an ideal venue for private events, business functions, and parties.
Seasons Living Room: For a more casual, laid back dining experience, the Living Room, located in the main lobby, offers comfortable seating, low tables and a light-filled ambiance. This a great place to grab a cocktail, a quick snack or enjoy a cup of coffee.
Barista Bar: At the entrance to Seasons, the bar offers a variety of freshly made coffee and espresso drinks, teas and juices. House-made sandwiches, salads and pastries to-go are also offered.
At The Summits Clubhouse, The Summits Grill offers casual poolside dining and cocktail service daily. Higher Grounds Coffee Shop features specialty coffees, teas and fresh pastries daily.
One of the finest golf facilities in Southern California – The Aviara Golf Club — is just moments from Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara. Designed by Arnold Palmer, the 18-hole, 7,007-yard, par-72 course is sculpted around the natural coastal topography – with water hazards positioned as visual extensions of the Batiquitos Lagoon. The club includes a lavish two-story Spanish-colonial clubhouse with the Argyle Steakhouse and a complete golf shop.
The exclusive Del Mar Country Club, Southern California's premiere private golf destination in nearby Rancho Santa Fe is currently extending special National Membership privileges to Aviara owners in residence. This unique opportunity, currently offered through December 2014, allows Aviara owners to pay this 7,226-yard championshp course, and provides access the the clubhouse, two restaurants, fitness facilities, junior olympic swimming pool, tennis courts, and playground after the first round of play with the convenience of charging privileges posted to your Four Seasons villa account.
Residence Club owners have access to the following during their stay:
Children's amenities, such as child-size bathrobes, complimentary baby and children's toiletries, childproofing equipment, and cribs and highchairs upon request.
Babysitting Services (please allow at least 24 hours notice)
Club 760: a dedicated game room at the Summits Clubhouse with X-Box, Wii, board games, books, computers and movies.
Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara is also one of the few pet-friendly properties available. Owners may bring well-behaved pets upon submitting a Pet Cleaning Fee of $175.00 (for a two-bedroom villa) or $75.00 (for a one-bedroom villa). The Pet Cleaning Fee is charged only once per stay, so if you are occupying for multiple weeks, you will pay only one fee for your entire stay. Pet feeding bowls, beds and other amenities are provided.
Types of Usage
Each villa may be reserved for seven nights of use each year, checking in on your choice of Friday, Saturday or Sunday during your season of ownership.
Other usage options available to ALL owners include:
Double Use (Lock-off)
As an alternative to using your ownership for seven nights each year in the full two bedroom villa, the "lock-off" feature provides you the option of vacationing for two weeks each year, one week in a one bedroom villa with king bedroom, ensuite bath plus guest bath with shower, full kitchen, laundry room and two private patios or balconies, and a second week in the Studio Guest Room with king bed, en suite bath, private patio or balcony and equipped kitchenette.
You may split your week in the one bedroom premium or the full two bedroom villa and reserve two separate stays at different times during your season of ownership, one a three-night stay checking in on a Friday and checking out on Monday; the other a four-night stay checking in on a Monday and checking out on Friday.
Within the Platinum season, a limited number of units were sold as "Fixed Weeks". A Fixed-Week ownership entitles the owner to use a specific week within Platinum season every year without having to make a reservation request. Fixed week reservations are automatically confirmed each year, but fixed-week owners may also request alternate dates, if desired, during standard reservation windows.
Fixed Weeks require a higher initial investment but are an excellent option for owners who want guaranteed availability of their desired week(s) during peak travel times within Platinum season.
All owners are eligible to utilize Double Use (Lockoff) and Split Week options. These options do not require affiliation with Four Seasons Club Exchange.
Unless you purchase a "Fixed Week" ownership, use of your unit requires that you make a reservation request through Owner Services for your desired stay.
Reservations at your Home Resort during your season of ownership may be requested 12 months before your desired check-in date. If you own two or more weeks and wish to reserve consecutive weeks or concurrent units (two units for the same week), you may request reservations 13-months to the day before your desired check-in date.
Annual maintenance fees provide for all costs of maintenance and operation of the villas, common areas and amenities; insurance; utilities; daily housekeeping services; and resort staff . A portion of each maintenance fee is also allocated to capital reserves to provide for major repairs of fixtures and equipments and periodic refurbishing of the villas and clubhouses.
Annual maintenance fees for 2020, regardless of the season of ownership, are $2,569.00 per interval week owned for the two bedroom lock off, and $2,130.00 for the one-bedroom premium villa.
Property taxes are billed separately at approximately 1.5% of your purchase price.
