beautiful property, great location


This property is truly stunning and well maintained and the people who work here are very friendly and happy and professional. The restaurant is very good so it's nice to have that right there. And the little walkway is so pretty. But if that is too short of an area, there are plenty of places to walk/run adjacent to property as well. A couple of warnings: there is no AC, and it can get stuffy. It won't bother you unless you run warm like I do. Also, if you are noise sensitive, let them know so you are placed in a quieter area. Other than that, have fun and enjoy!

Lovely Visit

Lexington, Kentucky

We enjoyed our recent stay in a one-bedroom, ocean front condo. We were on the second level, furthest from the pool area, with an amazing view from our balcony. Everything was clean and the condo had all of the necessities, except A/C. Although A/C wasn't necessary in early September. We just opened the windows and the sliding doors to the balcony. The only real negative were the barking dogs. I had to initial a form on check-in that we did not have a dog, but apparently each condo is different. The one above us had a small dog which loved to bark on the balcony. The pool is nice and heated, and not crowded when we were there. We liked the fact the hotel was outside of Pismo Beach.
