We didn't want to stay in a hotel on our vacation, because we always are surrounded by tourists. At the penthouse loft at pillar point harbor, we truly felt like we were locals. Walking the beach in the morning, sipping coffee while looking out over the harbor, walking right out our door and getting in the car to go sightseeing made us feel like we were in a home, not a hotel. Great place, great view and a well maintained property. We wanted for nothing while we were there.
