Be Our Guest

Experience timeless Californian glamor. Rooms invite coastal-style serenity with a blend of light, airy textures and locally carved furnishings that echo the tranquility outside. Underfloor heating and wood burning stoves warm up the cooler seasons. Marble baths invite truly decadent bathing. Come spring, throw open your ocean-facing patio doors and drink in the breeze from the privacy of your terrace.
