I go to Oceano every year for a retreat. Great place all the time, but this past time I was placed in the "Villas" section. Good walk from the main lobby. Room has a kitchen, but the layout is stacked, where the bedroom is in a loft upstairs. Everything else is downstairs.

In the "Villas", bedroom is in a loft. Bathroom, kitchen and everything is downstairs. This room is not handicap accessible.
