My hub and I decided on the Harbor House after reading the reviews here and on Yelp.
I'm happy to say the reviews are accurate. The room we were in was really nice (room #6 upstairs) and the view spectacular (see pics) The setup is nice too as you have a small frige and a microwave so if you had leftovers from say.... Pasta Moon (yummy place in town try the pasta it's homemade!) you could bring them back and finish them up later! Being right on the water was just great. I looked out to see dozens of pelicans just hanging out in the bay. We also saw a seal in the morning..nice! Take the small walk up to the cliffs it's well worth the view! The breakfast is not one of a typical B&B but it's nice. After brewing your own coffee (which was a nice fresh coffee from the Santa Cruz Roasting Company I think?) we opened the door to find a basket with a little note and a rose. The basket contained canned apple juice, yogurt ,fresh fruit and a loaf of the warm fruit bread of the day...ours was strawberry bread and it was delicious!
The Not So Good...
The foghorn does go off every 6 seconds or so but as it was rhythmic we were not really bothered by it . Also, small airplanes go right over your room! A dozen went over ours but they were not too loud so they didn't bother us too much but, to be honest we are not bothered by noise! I think the room, the view and the strawberry bread make it worthwhile!
