Thanks so much for this sweet little piece of heaven. I feel like I’m in my own little world at this place. Not to mention the waves on a bad day are better than most… Can’t wait to come back.

Stayed in room #1, A.C. killed it. Waves were 4 to 6 and going off. Food was great. Ask for the oatmeal. Marshall and Angela rule! See ya soon. Later

Where to begin? We had little idea of what to expect, but we could not have imagined a more perfect time at La Ponderosa! The food, the company, the cabinas, the dogs, the surroundings – and most of all, the hospitality. Thank you for everything. We’ll be back!

– Rupert & Ali/ Bermuda

Glad I took my bud’s advice to come to La Ponderosa… If the surf doesn’t bring me back the BBQ chicken will.

Many thanks to everyone. You guys took great care of us! This was a great place for Rob and I to celebrate our engagement. See you next year on our honeymoon! Best wishes to you all! Until next summer…
