Each of our six individually decorated rooms, named after a famous surfing spot in the area, has its own unique style.
Mind blowing. Explosive…These are some of the adjectives used to describe the most famous big wave break on the continental United States. Mavericks offers an e-ticket ride for those who have the nerve to paddle the half-mile out to an ethereal reef spot just off Pillar Point. Discovered by famed surfer Jeff Clark and ridden solo over the ensuing decade, Mavericks is a fickle spot that really only works when the swell comes from the northwest, at high tide, and with no or offshore winds. The wave needs caressing by nature, and can go from good to bad in less than an hour. In 2007 one of the largest waves purportedly reached 100 feet, although it mostly breaks anywhere from 15 to 45 feet. These are not waves to tease but to simply ride straight and hard to safety. Most take the right, which has three separate bowls that collapse on the surfer but which ultimately exits to safety.
What makes the Mavericks Guestroom so special…
Located in the quaint village of Princeton-by-the-Sea just minutes north of historic Half Moon Bay, you will find beachcombing, hiking, tidepooling, shopping, kayaking and oceanfront dining all within easy walking distance.
The best quick weekend getaway hotel we could hope for. Absolutely beautiful room with a fantastic view.It even started off amazing. Allan called us the day we were scheduled to arrive and told us our room was ready by noon, when they usually don't allow check-in until 3PM. I've never ever had a hotel do that, and even though we didn't make it there till after three, I would have loved another 3 hours there. They keep a 'journal' in each room for the guests to write in, and the things the previous guests wrote were absolutely stunningly beautiful. I guess I should not have been surprised, but over half of their guests are from the local area. If you live here, I cannot recommend this highly enough. This was our first time, but we'll be back many, many times.
