Things to do:
I highly recommend visiting Torrey Pines State Park. There are many opportunities for hiking and seeing the beautiful ocean from the cliffs. You could also drive the Coronado bridge and then rent bikes and go down the Silver Strand from Coronado to Imperial Beach. If you want to stay close to the guest house, I recommend you plan to hike Potato Chip Rock and/or El Capitan Mountain (very strenuous).
Because we are in the countryside, We use Dishnetwork satellite internet,We kindly ask our guests not to stream videos. Instead, guests are welcome take advantage of our satellite TV service or bring their own DVDs. This internet is also not ideal for gaming or any type of voice over IP.
We expect our guests to keep the space clean and to take care of furniture.
If you do have more than 2 people, we do have a twin day bed that can open for 2 additional people.
