This was a great place for a romantic get-away! Access to a secluded beach, very casual and quaint. The bed was very comfortable and the room perfect! The staff was great and the breakfast was far more than Continental! We'll definitely stay here again if we get the chance.

This is not for the average tourist but instead is suited for the discriminating guest. Imagine the Santa Cruz experience within walking distance of Pleasure Point sitting RIGHT ON SUNNY COVE BEACH! I have forgotten the lady's name that runs the office but I certainly remember

Only stay here if you are friendly and kind because the people that run this place go above and beyond for their guests! The smell of fresh baked orange, cranberry bread hit us the moment we got to the door. Steps to the beach and local restaurants, the location is hard to beat.

Hello Voyager, Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. Yes, you are correct we do remind everyone to respect others with 'Quiet Time' after 10pm and we're so pleased you appreciated it. We're happy you enjoyed your stay and we hope you can come back very soon.

We stayed one night and really enjoyed the hotel. It’s quiet and conveniently located between Capitola and Santa Cruz with a quick path to a little cove off the ocean. We’ll be back some day for sure!

Hello and thank you for this nice review. We are dog-friendly, in some room and definitely in a nice quiet neighborhood location, but still close to everything you want to do do. Come back and relax with us again soon!

Cottage 6 actually has three beds: one king and two queens. Cottage 11 has two queen beds. Cottage 5 has a queen bed and two twin beds. Several of our cottages will have a bed in the bedroom and a sofa sleeper in the living room. The best thing would probably be to look at our website. The rates vary depending on the time of year, weekends vs midweek, holidays, etc. Thanks for asking!

"We reserved the pet room, then decided not to bring our pets. The room was still very nice."
"We stayed in Room 8 and it was very nice. I would ask for one of the rooms at the back of the property next time right by the beach."
