Before you open your eyes in the morning, you can hear the sea lions on the offshore rocks. When you roll over in the comfy bed and open your eyes, it's better than a post card scene because it's real. We just spent six nights using this as our base camp for exploring the redwoods coast. The surroundings are beautiful with flowers and hummingbirds!! We set aside one morning for a walk down to the private beach. Towards the bottom of the trail the is a small creek with little waterfalls that flow out at the cobbled beach. The apartment is little small but just fine for two. We'd stay here again and again.
