I am still trying to pick where to stay this time on AC. Stayed at Mata Rocks last time, but want something more accessible to town so I can walk the beach and be closer to restaurants, bars, etc. Has anyone ever stayed at Corona Del Mar? Now, I am looking at this place, Coral Bay Villas, or Changes in Latitudes B & B. Can't decide!

Laurie,

We have many friends who have been staying at Corona Del Mar for more than 15 years, and love it. Woody has a pretty interesting "cocktail hour" for his guests each evening, and his wordly outlook is, by itself, worth the price of admission..

We have a certain amount of experience with Coral Bay Villas. IMHO it is a great place to stay, one of the best. We are there 3-5 times a year, and at least once a year take enough friends with us to fill it, and some adjoining properties as well. Never had a complaint. Of course I don't listen to them anyways.

CC: Can you elaborate a little on the "wordly outlook?" I sent them an e-mail and it seems like a great place. I was surprised that the price included breakfast and all day rum punches. Boy, one could get into trouble!

Also, another question: Is it far enough away from that barge thing? It is hard to tell on the map on this website. Thanks!

Laurie,
Every place in AC has a bit of an "Achilles heel". Corona Del Mar is about 150 yards from the barge, and is only a minor distraction, or a convenient form of entertainment, depending on one's perspective.

Woody Canaday is truly one of the island's more interesting "characters", and yes indeed the rum punch jug is turned on basically 18/7. I can attest to that from first hand experience (or so I'm told). Go to the AC Home page, click on the San Pedro Sun, at the SPS site do the search function using "Woody". Read the article and you'll get a better idea of the gist of my comments.

Have a great time.

Laurie, I believe it's directly next door to Coconuts. I was walking past and a really nice lady came out and offered me a tour. Forgot her name but she seemed really friendly and the place was well kept.

Okay, I read the article about him in the San Pedro Sun. Does sound like an interesting character. Plus, he comes from Southern Calif., where I was born and raised.
