Each of our six individually decorated rooms, named after a famous surfing spot in the area, has its own unique style.
Well protected by northwest winds, a collector for south swells, The Jetty is mostly even-tempered throughout the year. You can always find a wave at the Jetty, which has a characteristic "reverb" wave that gets its height and shape from classical physics - constructive wave interference resulting from a combination of a man-made jetty that is roughly at a right angle to the beach, forcing two waves to come together and create an explosion both incredibly steep and often times hollow. It is an easy paddle out and well viewed from Highway 1. Late take-offs are normal due to the immense energy created by the confluence of two waves, resembling a surfable Sandy Beach or even the Wedge. Most of the locals are quite friendly and this is where everyone can enjoy the surf.
What makes The Jetty 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.
There is nothing more beautiful then waking up the morning after you just got married to sunshine and the calming waters of Half Moon Bay smack dab in front of you. I selected Inn @ Mavericks because this is exactly how I wanted to wake up - just married, with our bed facing the open sea, reflecting on how this is the first day of our married life together.
No other "hotel" could guarantee I'd have a room with a FULL ocean view - at Maverick's ocean views is all they've got.
We stayed in the Ross Cove room which was incredibly comfortable and had: a clean and updated large bathroom, mini-fridge, coffee maker, microwave, small fire place, love seat and chair, small table and an incredibly cute (but small) balcony with complimentary binoculars so you could see little sea lions peep their heads out of the Bay.
The bed, a King-size of pure comfort. Fresh duvet comforters, extra blankets, tons of pillows. I personally prefer queen size, but since I was so exhausted from our wedding reception, it didn't matter all that much.
As far as the foghorn, it really is an afterthought. You do get used to it because it's a softer sounding foghorn that you would find on your Sharper Image Sleep Soother alarm clock. It's NOT like a blaring Titanic foghorn. Plus the giant sliding glass doors are double paned and super thick but if you are super sensitive to sound, then bring some ear plugs just in case. Keep in mind though if you grew up in a suburban city next to a nearby airport like my husband and I did or if you live in a downtown area it's really not a problem - Inn @ Maverick's will be heaven for you.
In fact writing this review makes me want to go back there right now...I'll be back...
