I just stayed here for a romantic Valentine's Day weekend and had a really wonderful time. I hadn't heard of the place before but it is in a beautiful and quiet area only about 20 minutes from Monterey and Carmel.
The unit, Pelican 67, was clean and spacious and well equipped. It would be a great place to come with another couple or your family. We sat out on the balcony and watched the waves crash and woke up to a view of the ocean every morning from the master bedroom. It was so relaxing! Our days were mostly spent down the coast but we were able to stop at the store in Watsonville and cook dinner as well which was a great option. The condos seemed full of people but it was very quiet both day and night.
Sitting outside with a glass of wine listening to the waves never gets old! I will be back!
