Very nice overall! Friendly staff. Breakfast was decent, but I would categorize this as a bed and breakfast. Loved the community seating area, although we couldn’t use in the morning because the seats were wet. A full length mirror and darkening curtains would be nice additions. Especially when you’re away from your kids for the first time in two years! It would also be nice if the vending machine or front desk had bottled water.

Morning coffee on the deck listening to and watching the surf! Slightly quaint charm in a rambling 100+ year old inn that's been tastefully refurbished with all the modern amenities. Great location for surfers or tourists to peace out after an active day in Santa Cruz Couldn't find warmer, more gracious hosts than Rachel and Abe. They even loved our curmudgeonly English bulldog Alfonso. Hope to make many surfing trips and this will be our go-to lodging. If you have a chance, be sure to book it on your next trip to Santa Cruz.

We just stayed in the two-story, dog-friendly room at this boutique hotel. This property has well-equipped rooms, comfortable beds, and awesome views from some rooms and from the common area deck. Only one half-block away is a small ocean cove. Beautiful ocean sounds and sunsets. Our unit had a small private fenced yard that our dog loved. We cooked our Thanksgiving feast in the kitchen and on the BBQ and sat outside in our own patio table to enjoy the meal. The owners are friendly and helpful. The gave us tips on places to hike and locations for dining. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The owners are completing a renovation on two of the rooms and these will offer stunning views of the ocean.

Everything was perfect for a quite weekend getaway. A small complaint being, one of the pots was not very well cleaned. But it did not bother us, as we didn’t do any cooking. Apart from that, the setting of they property was just perfect.
