We love the Sea and Sand! Perfect location -- every room has a view, good value, nice clean rooms with fireplaces -- very romantic. The staff is friendly and efficient and really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Love this place!
Everything was perfect. WE tried to stay in Half Moon Bay but because the power was out that did not work out. We accidentally found Sea and Sand on the internet and were extremely happy. Clean, great staff, great location, etc.
