Cottage suite accommodations open to stunning Pacific views and feature every creature comfort one could wish for. When you're not traipsing the grounds on foot, by bicycle or by four-wheel drive, tee off on the award-winning golf course, where each hole offers ocean views — promising to thrill golfers of all levels.
