Spy serene coastline views enhanced by a post-vino haze with today's escapist Groupon. For $150, you'll get a romantic retreat at SeaCrest Resort complete with ocean-view room, wine tasting with appetizers, winery tour, bottle of wine, and $10 toward Marie Callender's, an up to $424 value.
In this Groupon-exclusive deal, you can enjoy a posh stay away from reality three hours outside of Los Angeles. Wake up to the epic sounds of waves ravishing the shores of Pismo Beach along California's central coast from plush accommodations in one of SeaCreast's ocean-view rooms. During your stay, enjoy a wine tasting at Clos Mimi, a demure Santa Maria winery established by Tim and Mimi Spear that produces 100% Syrah. You'll spend two oaky hours sipping perfect pours, noshing on appetizers, asking winey questions, and touring the buzzed-about winery. Return back to your love nook and enjoy a bottle in bed. Splurge on $10 worth of sweet pastries and pies for a decadent breakfast from Marie Callender's, which is just down the street. Try freshly baked muffins (chocolate, banana nut, zesty lemon) or a warm croissant egg sandwich served with fresh fruit.
Take after-dinner seashell-collecting strolls on SeaCrest's five acres of beachfront, or explore nearby Monarch Butterfly Grove. Guests can also meander down the famed Pismo Pier and charmingly bustling downtown area. Get this Groupon to cozy up with your sweetheart, take a day off from household chores, or for a pre-planned Valentine's Day straight out of a Kate Hudson movie that co-stars Jackie Chan.
The winery offers tours starting at 1 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays, but if you book your hotel stay on another day, Clos Mimi will do its best to accommodate you.
- The hotel layout naturally lends itself to mingling with other guests, so it's a fun and different aspect you won't find at other places. – puglover79, TripAdvisor
- After our drive up the coast and a visit to wine country , we arrived at the hotel. It was such a wonderful surprise. It really is perched on the cliffs right above the ocean. The hotel is impeccably clean, the lobby smells wonderful, and everything is tastefully modern & updated. – sedona75, TripAdvisor
- The rooms were all remodeled and they all look excellent. I am going to come back year after year – de_jo233, Yahoo! Travel
- Deep ruby. Powerful, exotic scents of red and dark berry preserves, blood orange, underbrush, smoky herbs and black olive. Pungent, smoky raspberry and blackberry flavors stain the palate and supple tannins add support. The herbal and olive notes resonate on the long, smoky, deeply sweet finish. I suspect that this will be overly wild for some winos. – Josh Raynolds
