After reading all the reviews on TripAdvisor, we zeroed in on a stay at the Sea & Sand Inn. We were not disappointed! A darling inn, right on the cliff, with absolutely spectacular views! We were lucky enough to have landed in the deluxe spa room (king bed, spa, & fireplace!) and it was worth every penny. We opened up the windows at night and listened to the waves crashing on the shore below us. The seals barking in the morning were a delight. We were pleasantly surprised to find that wine & cheese were served in the late afternoon and that a continental breakfast was included as well. A real value. Enjoying wine & cheese on our patio, and then breakfast the next morning . . . it just couldn't have been any better. The office staff was friendly and helpful and we can't wait to return to this gem in Santa Cruz!!!
