We loved it there!

4.4 on January 04, 2015

Very charming Bed and Breakfast! We were so graciously upgraded to the pent house on the 3rd floor because a big group showed up. It was so charming and felt like home we didn't want to leave. The views were amazing! We will be going back for sure.

Pleasant stay

The rooms were old and smelled funny but once we got used to the smell, it was ok. The room was nice & roomy but the beds were pretty hard. I was impressed with the service. And breakfast in the morning came right on time, and the service was excellent.

you get what you pay for in that area

wanted a cheap alternative for an ocean-view stay in that area; took advantage of bedandbreakfast.com's $50 discount which still made it pricey for what you got

The staff was extremely friendly, room was very large and roomy. It did have a musty smell, but with the air/fans going it was fine. We stayed there and drove into SF. The pricing was better then in SF. Enjoyed the ocean view, The little cafe next door, WONDERFUL!!
