Each of our six individually decorated rooms, named after a famous surfing spot in the area, has its own unique style.
Located at the northern base of Pillar Point (the western most tracking station of the United States Air Force), Ross' Cove offers unprecedented surfing. On smaller days on a high tide, the left breaks along the point and moves outside as the swell increases in size. Once in the lineup, the immense currents can take you in either of three directions, none of which are good. Volkswagen-sized boulders underwater create mushroom eddy's that identify take-off points; they also are a reminder of the downside of getting caught inside, as your leash can easily trip over one of these rocks and leave you helpless during a set. Maverick's is clearly visible from the outside lineup, and must have been seen by hundreds of surfers, which makes you wonder how Maverick's managed to stay so empty until 1990.
What makes the Ross' Cove 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.
When we arrived Thanksgiving Day the manager was not present (understandable on the holiday)but had left the key hanging outside the room-obviously a very safe neighbourhood!
The room was lovely and had the most comfortable bed ever and a beautiful large bathroom complete with soaker tub and robes.
There was a bar frig, microwave, glasses and dishes, a basket full of snack food and fruit, bottle of wine, bottle of champagne and a box of chocolates all for our enjoyment(ask for the honeymoon or anniversary special). On the table there were books and magazines and binoculars at our disposal.
My boyfriends snoring is way more annoying than the fog horn but I'm sure it would pose a problem for some.
The balcony is a nice size and you have a great view from it.We stayed at the Hyatt In San Francisco with a bay-view balcony the next night and The Mavericks was far superior-better balcony and view, better bed, far better bathroom and all the little extras- the Hyatt doesn't even supply robes.
We loved Half Moon Bay and Princeton and The Inn at Mavericks-we will definitely return.
