Cerritos Hacienda on the Rocks

DSCN0734The owner of the RV parking lot where we are camped (as the story goes), Roger Pollock, built this beautiful hacienda (house) up on the rocks for his wife, but by the time it was finished construction she had left him.  It’s beautiful construction, big open spaces, heavy/chunky furniture, lots of stone/brick/ceramic details.

Dining table just the right size for our family with a highchair for Marin.  But no room to carry it in our van!

The main floor is open to the public as is the Whale Watching Bar, and guests of Cerritos Surf Colony are able to access the gorgeous outdoor pools/hot tubs and the gym.

We were disappointed to find out that we couldn’t access the stairs behind the bookshelves that leads up to the top of the tower, but we were content on seeing what we did see.  The kids were amazed, said it’s like a castle.

There is easy access from the beach via a stone staircase but we were lazy and drove up, on our way to Todos Santos for the day.
