Arrived with my girlfriend for a romantic weekend...
Arrived with my girlfriend for a romantic weekend...
The room was nice. We didn't anticipate the amount of stairs it took to get to the room, but they were well worth it. The room was wonderful and opened up straight to a patio into the sand. The beach sprawls out in front of you. The one dislike was the idea that you could sleep with the window open and enjoy the sound of the waves at night. First of all, the waves are a good 100-150 yards away, and are not open ocean waves. They are waves that roll in from around the bay, and tend to be small. Secondly, there is a busy bike path about 25 yards from your window, so in the morning when you're trying to relax and sleep in, and your window is open, you hear all the loud obnoxious people that yell or blare music while running or walking down the path. If you keep it closed, its still a wonderful cozy place to stay. Other than that, it was an awesome weekend, and we would definitely stay there again!

Good location, right on beach as advertised, a reasonable walk to the conference center. Get the additional room next door, and it makes a pleasant stay. Management is helpful and responsive.

My husband and I spent 4 nights at the beachside retreat. It was amazing! It was exactly like the description and pictures says. The place may seem small on the pictures, but it's surely big enough for two people. It was clean and welcoming. I talked with the owner a couple times before our arriving and she has been very helpfull. She made our stay very easy. The room is confortable, and everything is there to make you fell like you're at home. The beach is gorgeous, we even saw some dolphins! Next time we're in California, we're definitely gonna stay there again!
