This is one of the nicest properties we have ever stayed at. Everything was spotless and the view is amazing! The online pictures truly don’t do it justice. The owners couldn’t be more friendly and helpful. I will be recommending this to all my friends!

Truly is a sanctuary!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sea Lion Sanctuary. Great location, view and immaculately maintained grounds. Peaceful and quiet. It really was a great retreat for us. Glen and Frances are awesome hosts who really showed a keen interest in seeing that our needs were met, and offering their advice on local attractions and activities. We would definitely stay here again. Big Thank You to both of you Glen and Frances for making our stay that much better. We look forward to a return trip. Dave and Ginny

4/5 Good

Clean, lovely location, kitchen a bit difficult
We enjoyed our time overall. The view and garden were stunning. The suite was wonderfully clean. The kitchen is quite inconvenient for food preparation. We would have been glad if the photos made this more obvious. Might be ok for people who eat out a lot on vacation. The library is excellent.

5/5 Excellent
