My husband and I stayed at this property in October 2006. It was a spur of the moment trip and we arrived fairly late on a Saturday evening. Check in was easy and we were shown right to our room. Our room had a fire place (fire wood was provided) a balcony with an amazing view of the ocen through beautiful redwoods and a very large jacuzzi tub. (No phone or TV in the room, which was fine by us and we did not have cell reception. There is a phone in the lobby to use if necessary).
We were invited to a gathering in the main room for wine and appetizers. There was a very large round fire place in the center of the room and the hostess/owner was serving the wine and appetizers. It was very nice and we enjoyed talking with some of the other guests. We drove back to into town for dinner and it was very good, sorry don't remember the name. We enjoyed the hot tub (warning....do not turn on the jets until the water has COMPETELY covered them). The fireplace was wonderful as it got pretty cold and romantic! There was a delicious breakfast delievered to our room in the morning and newspaper. We explored the property after breakfast and went down to their private beach. It was very nice but be prepared to climb many stairs. Overall our stay was great! For the price however, I do think the owners should consider updating the rooms and definately update the mattress. Otherwise, fantastic!
