Date of Trip: December 2006
My wife and I visited Cayucos Sunset Inn for a second time (we’d waited so long!) from Dec 27-Dec 29 as part of a five-night getaway up the California Central Coast. I warned my wife that the trip would start out on top and progress toward mediocrity. I was right!
We stayed in the largest suite, the Sunset Suite, which is 1100 sq ft of beautiful stained concrete and wood flooring, bright airy white blinds in the many windows with white bedding (amazing!) and a partial ocean view/street view large deck. The bathroom couldn’t have been larger or more elegant… the two-room bathroom (2-person jacuzzi and double-sink on one side of the hall, two person rain shower and toilet on the other side) were about as big as the WHOLE ROOMS of our stays in Carmel and Santa Barbara! Add to that a huge separate sitting room and bedroom suite (which both had cable TVs and fireplaces), we were spoiled more than we could’ve imagined. Then there was the service… wine and cheese and artichoke dip in the early evening and a full cook-to-order breakfast (four choices!) the next morning… this included a fresh fruit bowl, juice, coffee, milk and scone… nothing was left out! We bumped into Lisa, the owner… she recognized us from two years prior! Adding to her warmth was Carly who greeted us, showed us to our room, made us reservations at Hoppe’s down the street (fantastic!), served us breakfast… we hated to leave! As I write this, I’m already planning next year’s Coastal Winter Trip… it will most definitely CENTER around Cayucos Sunset Inn!
PS: Cayucos is a perfect quiet beach town with Cambria and Hearst Castle to the north, Paso Robles to the Northeast, and Morro Bay/SLO to the south… all within a 30 minute drive!
