The room was average, but with a great backyard. Parking was included, which is necessary in its location, but I also liked its location, up the hill out of town a bit but still walkable. Unfortunately, there was a drought while we were there, so the pool was not really in use, which was too bad with hot hot weather....

The place is located at an amazing place. Walking distance to the ocean and fun foods at exposure. Variety of breakfast was amazing. The staff is friendly. Somehow it had that homely feeling. I liked that about it

Breakfast was particularly good, and the amenities available were good. I enjoyed the peace and quiet, which was I was looking for. A 5 minute drive from the beach was convenient, and I spent a lot of time walking down there. All in all a lovely trip away from home!
