Each room is divided by an enclosed car port. There are beach chairs for the beach, two restaurant/bars within easy walking distance. David is a great man, full of stories and places to go that are personally used. Small basket of fruit and baked treats from a local bakery, gas fireplace, great bed. Really clean, ketchy place. Highly recommended for... More

We drove up HWY 1 from LA to San Francisco and wanted to spend the night near Hurst Castle as we planned to visit there in the morning. We turned off and drove down to Moonstone Beach late afternoon and it was just beautiful. We looked for a room in our budget and was surprised how many of the small... More

Then we had to compete again for accommodation. We came across Captain's Cove. Rooms were really quirky, clean and the operator/owner was courteous. He had a wealth of knowledge of the local areas...

We were very comfortable at Captains Cove. The properitor was very helpful and friendly. The inn only has about a half a dozen units. They are unique with each having an ajoining car port. The rooms are spacious, very clean, but a bit out dated, which was not an issue. The inn is right across the street from Moonstone beach... More

We came here a few weeks ago. The last time we stayed here was over 10 yrs ago, but loved it back then. It was so sweet, cute, and charming. This time, we discovered it has new owners, not family run as before. The sweet touches we had before, were non existant. You used to get a basket delivered to... More
