What a wonderful place! It is an historic farm and former winery. The house itself is beautiful. The rooms are very comfortable, we had the best sleep. A great place for a friends or family retreat, this was our yearly girls getaway and it was the best we have had in a long time. Easy access to all that the... More

My husband and I spent two nights here for our 10 year anniversary. The room as gorgeous - spacious, with a jaw droppingly beautiful bathtub, and a little couch/sitting area off to one side of the room. Lovely tiled bathroom. Quiet, peaceful and lovely. The property is a joy to meander and roam. There are only two things keeping this... More

We have stayed at hundreds of inns and bed and breakfast lodgings. Jen and Derek have developed and designed Sand Rock Farm with an exquisite and understated elegance that eclipses all others. They calmly create a home-like environment for their lucky guests. The meals are incredibly healthy and memorable. Check it out........

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Sand Rock Farm B&B in September 2015. Jen and Derrick are wonderful hosts. It is an oasis in the forest and is so close to the ocean and all the sights of the Central Coast. The rooms were very clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious.

We stopped at Sand Rock Farm on our 27th anniversary. What a lovely place! Very convenient to Highway 1, but far enough away to be quiet and tranquil. This lovely craftsman home is clean and welcoming. The gardens and nature walk with several fountains really turn up the charm. Three cats found us walking and welcomed us, eager for petting....

Perfect locaton -- close to the water, but in the forests. Perfect house -- a sprawling arts and crafts home set amidst blooming gardens. The rooms are clean and bright and stylish. The staff is relaxed, welcoming and warm, and breakfast is delicious. We booked an early flight, and showed up at 10am. (Five hours before check-in.) Jen and Derrick... More

This is simply an amazing home. Jen and Derrick are only the fourth owners of this 1870s estate built by the owner of the Spreckels company.

I stayed two nights and loved my time at the Sand Rock Farm. Every detail has been thought of by the owner who was very accommodating and kind. The breakfast was sensational. Great restaurants in the area as well. I will definitely go back.
