The cabins and very cute and tidy. They definitely show their age inside and out, but they are very comfortable. The kitchen is usable, but the stove and sink are very small. We made a full breakfast each morning and it was fun. I would not want to cook all meals in this room, but it could be done. There is a full grocery store (Ralph's) a few blocks away. The microwave and fridge were both good sized and both appeared to be new. It is clear that the management works to maintain satisfactory and is not resting on past glory. The flooring was new and the interior paint was fresh. The front of the cottages was in good condition and each one had window boxes with very well tended succulents. The back of our cottage was in need of paint. But, these cottages take a beating inside and out and it is clear that upkeep is constant. It was a bit cool during our stay and it was very windy on our deck. Bring some warm clothes just in case. Our view from the deck of the cottage is what you are paying for. We've stayed at some very nice beach hotels and the perspective from out in the water is very unique. Surfers are a constant presence right off the deck. This was very entertaining and it was totally unique to see them from this perspective. Gulls and pelicans were frequent visitors to the deck. One small complaint is that the horizontal slats around the deck railing are so wide that the view is pretty limited when you are sitting. I'm sure this is for safety, but I'd maybe consider some steel cables or something less obtrusive. The bed and pillows were clean and comfortable. Furniture was nice and appropriate to the setting. The shower and toilet area in cottage B is due for a rehab, but it was not terrible. I bet this is on their list. We really enjoyed our stay. It was a very unique experience and felt like a good value to us for that reason.
