On the main drag and with direct access to the beach, this sprawling inn and time-share condominium complex is popular with families and has a variety of rooms, ranging from cramped to large, including many with ocean views, balconies, and kitchenettes, and some with fireplaces and hot tubs. It is furnished Queen Anne style (think pencil-post beds and wall sconces), and has such noteworthy architectural elements as gable roofs, half-timber walls, and stone supports. Public
areas—a lobby with a waterfall and a library with overstuffed sofas and chairs—are warmed by big rock fireplaces. The entire facility surrounds brilliant seasonal gardens. The property offers a schedule of activities that includes tours to Hollywood, a beach cabana fully equipped with toys in summer, and crafts classes.
