Moonstone Cottages Hotel Review: These unique standalone honeymoon cottages sit in a grove of cypress trees by the sea. Admittedly, it looks odd to see them right next to the big-shouldered hotels on Moonstone Beach Drive, but it somehow works, thanks in large part to meticulous upkeep and gracious owners. Each of the three cottages is individually designed and decorated. Best of all, each cottage has its own private entrance and no adjoining walls with any neighbors, making them truly private. Closest to the surf, the Seascape Cottage has an oceanfront porch and Cape Cod-style décor, while the Mariner Cottage is stuffed full of nautical whimsy. All of the cottages boast hotel-quality features and amenities, including fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, marble bathrooms with whirlpool tubs, TVs with VCRs and DVD players, mini fridges, microwaves, coffee makers, telephones, and high-speed internet access. And all this costs surprisingly little more than you'd pay for a room elsewhere along this beachfront strip. Don't bring the kids along on this trip---it's for couples only. Note the registration office is located off-site, closer to central Cambria.
