Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent a week at the Coronado Apartments, Apartmenmt #1, and had a great stay. Our two bedroom was clean and attractively decorated. It was just a 5 minute walk to a broad sandy beach. The coastal trail ran for miles along the beach in both directions. We walked all the way to the Mavericks Beach, where they hold the Mavericks Giant Wave Surfing contest every year. Pillar Point Harbor was an easy walk and was quite beautiful. Fishermen were selling Dungeness crab and fish directly from their boats.

Ralph, the owner, was very helpful and gave us names of several fantastic restaurants which we enjoyed. Sam’s Chowder House was a 10 minute walk, and had indoor and outdoor seating where we enjoyed wonderful seafood while watching the sun set over the Pacific. The Mediterranean restaurant Gibraltar was a great find and a most memorable dining experience.

We enjoyed being able to cook our breakfasts and some other meals in the fully equipped kitchen. We only used the king bed and found it to be very comfortable with lots of thick, warm bedding!

Our two excursions to San Francisco went quite well. It was about a 30 minute drive and we enjoyed taking in the many sights of the city! We also drove Highway 1 to Santa Cruz, a beautiful one hour drive and great town to visit.

The week was a great getaway for us, and we loved the area!

Great place to stay-close to everything

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay! Ralph is a great host! Close to San Francisco and beach too! Only thing needed is better cookwear in kitchen and instead of carpet in bedrooms I would do hardwood floors.

Beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for us. Very clean, and beds are comfy. The bathroom is tiny, but adequate. The throw rugs and some of the cook ware needs replacing, but the kitchen had new counter tops and the appliances were in great shape. We were awakened by the new construction across the street because they started at 7 AM. Looks like a very large apt. complex going up. The apt. has individual room heaters in the walls. Only a few blocks to the gorgeous Pacific and there are restaurants and beautiful walks all around. Perfect for getting to points North (SF) and South!

Clean, comfortable, affordable

  • 5 of 5

Unit is clean and well furnished and stocked. Lots of parking, and spitting distance from a very nice brewery (Hop Dogma). Easy to get to/from and relatively quiet as it is set up and a distance from Hwy 1.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Place was exactly as advertised and met our needs. Very clean and had the necessary ammenties for our stay. The location was convenient and in a laid back area. Close enough to San Francisco without the traffic and hords of people. Enjoyed several of the local resteraunts/bars/shops that were close enough to walk to.
