Loved the layout and location. The pool and BBQ areas are very well maintained and fenced for privacy from the road; they also have great views of the ocean. The ample grassed areas are great for the kids to run around, play ball sports and even climb trees; all overlooking the beach. Not even a bike track to cross to... More

We are pleased you had a great stay and enjoyed everything we have to offer here at San Simeon and the local area. Hopefully we get to keep our lovely big front lawn and for it not to be turned into a pathway as council is trying to do. We look forward to seeing you next time. More
