“Absolutely Wonderful”
Reviewed November 1, 2004

Very wonderfully located right by the beach and downtown State street, one would think this Inn would be loud, but the weekend my husband and I stayed at the cozy Inn was very peacefully quiet! Although quite small, it is more so of a home away from home. There was a fire in the lobby fireplace at both breakfast and during wine and cheese hours, as well as candles on the pool deck tables in the evenings. The front desk staff was very willing to book us a table at a lovely restaurant within walking distance. Id say the lack of noise, and being able to walk to all destinations in town, are what makes the Villa Rosa superb! I will return for another romantic weekend very soon.

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Rosa. The small intimate feeling of this inn was a treat. We stayed in room #8 and enjoyed having french doors open to a view of the lovely courtyard. The evening wine and cheese snack and the morning continental breakfast were a nice, much appreciated touch. The staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful. While I would not classify this inn as a B&B, the atmosphere is similar. Its location is ideal-we took the train up from LA and had no need for a car. The inn is near the train station, the beach, shopping, and restaurants. My husband and I would happily stay here again.
