If you are looking for a reasonably priced place to stay with great views, wonderful beach, scrumptiously clean and comfortable with a no pets, no smoking policy this is the place for you.

An ideal place to relax, ocean hear and walk beach. Facility and rooms are clean plus comfortable. I liked the retro hardwood wall plus refrigerator and microwave. Nice deck with seating. Will stay here again. Pricing fair and worth price. Fine sink, stool and shower. Coffee maker and coffee a bonus.

Thanks Jan for providing great accommodations for a reasonable rate. We had room #7, basically a hotel room, but with the protected deck it was perfect. I could see and hear the ocean from my bed. The grounds are impeccable with flowers everywhere. Bring your own toiletries and plastic cups. Great selection of restaurants 4 miles away either direction. Also...

The best way to describe the rooms would be groups of a few attached cabins, some one-story, some two, some complete kitchen units and some not. They won't reserve a room for just one night. We stayed three and could have stayed longer. Off the porch and onto the beach, just that easy. Owners are Jan and Eugene. It is...

Amazing! We spent 1 night here on a road trip all the way up the Pacific Coast Highway. We did not want to leave. Adorable, cottage style room. Super clean and comfortable. The cost was totally reasonable. The best part? You walk out of the room directly onto the beach. It was absolutely beautiful and I would stay here again...

Terry-A-While is a funky departure from your chain hotels. It sits right on the beach, you have your own deck and there is a nice little kitchen. We were in unit 3, which has two bedrooms which are located up the spiral staircase and two bathrooms (only one shower). The fixtures are a little dated and the beds could be...
