The experience of the Kate Stanton Inn starts with the first phone call. I needed a real vacation of solitude and lollygagging and Lizzy assured me that this was the place. Upon arrival, I was greeted by 2 women who welcomed me to their sanctuary with a warmth unmatched. Gourmet pizza was generously offered and my bags wisked to my room. Lizzy and Carol have created a unique experience and dearly love to offer an aesthetically comfortable experience, lovingly prepared food, and a community experience if guests choose to partake. Quiet and the need for spaciousness are honored too. I felt pampered and was indulged in an exchange of friendship that I shall always treasure. I needed to laugh and we laughed. I needed solitude, and had all that I wanted. I needed sleep, directions, beach equipment, and refrigerator space – it was all there. The Inn is impeccably clean (that would be Carol’s attention to detail), the beds are like big fluffy clouds, and every night fresh water and chocolate was on my nightstand. I would return from my day of lollygagging and be invited for a meal, dessert, or offered their undivided attention to share my day. I returned to the KSI a month later for my daughter’s 13th birthday with her best friend. Carol and Lizzy love kids and created a dream-like experience for the girls. A pasta birthday dinner complete with balloons, expertly decorated cupcakes, all layed out with the china and crystal. The two girls were absolutely mesmerized and Mom (me) was feeling eternal gratefulness for such a gesture of the heart. New guests arrived just as we were preparing to eat and we heartily welcomed them to join us. That is just how it is at the Kate Stanton Inn. A few weeks later, we opened a package containing beautiful photos taken by Carol. The beach is a 15 minute walk and the train to San Diego is a few minute's drive. The Inn itself is a relaxing & quiet environment with a hillside view of the ocean. Guests will not be disappointed and will appreciate the genuineness of this experience. I could write more, but why don’t you see for yourself what surprises await you.
