Excellent location with freeway access, and awesome ocean views. The pool and hot tub are inviting for a swim, or relax in the hot tub.

The Beauty of Nature canvassed infront of my eyes everytime i wake up in the morning that reminds me all the blessings from the Lord. Staff were extending extra miles to accomodate unusual needs, soecial mention Derek & Maggie of front desk. Very clean, simple elegant amenities and experienced closeness nature’s vastness of beauty lies infront of me. Highly recommendable! - EdgarLopez
