“A peak into the past”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Sand Rock Farm is a very well maintained house from the end of the 19th century. The furniture is a reminder of an elegant and distant past, while the Jacuzzi tubs in the bathrooms provide modern era comfort. The charming house, beautiful grounds and delicious breakfast make the stay at this bed and breakfast a very pleasant experience. The scenic trails among redwooods in the Nisene Marks State Park and the endless Manresa Beach are only a few miles away.

Kris is incredible!!! She made us feel right at home in this beautiful, serene, comfy B&B. It was the best place was stayed in our "Big Trees Roadtrip 2013". The room, the bed, the tub, the grounds, and that fantastic breakfast... WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED????? She took incredible care of us and completed our engagement vacation with lasting memories! You definitely cannot go wrong staying here... and her dog made it all complete! Thank you so much for everything!

My husband and I were driving to Monterey, CA to attend the historic car race in August 2013. We stayed here the night before the race. This is a beautiful historic place to stay which is very close to the beach, restaurants, wineries and yes Monterey. Staying here was so peaceful and quiet with the most beautiful garden and vintage furniture. Our breakfast was very delicious and prepared by the owner with locally grown fruits and vegetables. The dining area was so beautiful - we sat at a large table which overlooked the beautiful trees and flowered landscaping and shared our breakfast with the other guests - two of whom just got married the night before. We highly recommend this charming vintage beautiful home to anyone traveling along the coast of California !!!!!!!!!

We stayed two nights here and loved it. We came up for a wedding in Aptos and decided to stay at Sand Farm. It is a beautiful garden spot near the beach, wineries, there are many restaruants nearby, attractions, and site seeing. Rock Sand Farm is quiet and peaceful. A great place to relax.
The breakfast was wonderful. I am Gluten and Milk free and they were able to accommodate my diet needs. Breakfast was spectacular. I had scrambled eggs and goat cheese, served with a wonderful sausage, blueberry muffins and fruit. The second morning I had Gluten free waffles,( not home cooked, but frozen). Fresh homegrown blueberries and whipped cream topped them off. They also served melon slices with fresh blackberries and raspberries. A very enjoyable meal. I would definitely come here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the upstairs garden room. The room included a jacuzzi tub in the room. Very nice extra...

We checked in on Thursday and were the only guest. We woke up in a beautiful sunlit room and gazed out the window to lush gardens and a cute little hummingbird. We were greeted with a delicious breakfast, which consisted of fresh picked raspberries from the host's garden, orange juice, coffee, tea, and pastry. The main dish was roasted asparagus (yummy) with ham and goat cheese souffle. We could hardly wait for the next morning! The french toast with huckleberries was so fantastic that we stayed a third night. When we told Kris our plans to visit Monterey Bay Aquarium she offered us her season pass. She also made dinner reservations for us at Shadowbrook restaurant where we received a complimentary delicious appetizer. We had a delightful stay and I highly recommend it! I almost forgot to mention our jacuzzi tub for two, after a long day of fun in the sun it is a relaxing reprieve.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was charming, yet the amenities were modernized. The grounds were beautiful. We stayed in the Morning Glory room, and had the best night's sleep there in a long time. The in-room Jacuzzi tub was fantastic. When my boyfriend said he wanted a hearty breakfast, Kris changed her menu a bit just for him. It was very good! We would definitely like to return someday.

Kris welcomed us to the awesome Sand Rock Farm in mid-March as we traveled down the coast. The grounds and home could not have been more unique and comfortable. She had some good recommendations for restaurants and scenery in the area to make our stay well-rounded. The breakfast was so special and graciously served. We could hardly break away from the table, and enjoyed the other guests' conversations. We will definitely tell our friends about Sand Rock Farm, and hope to return.
