Our Favorite #CentralCoasting Entries: March

Spring has sprung on the Central Coast and your March #CentralCoasting entries are proof! We’ve loved seeing San Luis Obispo go green thanks to the recent rains through your camera lenses, and we look forward to witnessing another boom of wildflower blooms in April. But first, we wanted to look back on our 4 favorite #CentralCoasting entries, and share who our lucky March contest winner is!

Not familiar with #CentralCoasting yet? Each month, we randomly select one lucky #CentralCoasting entry from Instagram. The owner of this lucky photo is rewarded with a free night’s stay at one of our stunning Central Coast properties. Want to win next? Click here for details.

What We Love: We love seeing the Little Free Libary outside the Paso Robles Inn being used by young community members who share our love of reading! This adorable shot was captured by local mommy-blogger, Tonya, of Two in Tow & On the Go, who writes about her experiences exploring the Central Coast with her two tots. We’re happy that our library program is living up to its intention: to promote literacy and community sharing among guests and locals.

Each Martin Resorts property has a Little Free Libary where guests and locals alike can take a book and leave a book in return for others to enjoy. Have you seen one during your stay? Snap a shot and show us on Instagram!

What We Love: Photographer Alex Quintilla captured and posted this beautiful shot of Hearst Castle on International Women’s Day accompanied by an inspirational caption that read, “International Women’s Day serves as a reminder of the contributions that women have given our society. Julia Morgan was a renowned architect who designed this fantastic castle on a mountain in Central California. Like something out of a fairy tale, this Mediterranean-inspired marvel shows the scope for imagination of women everywhere. Don’t be afraid to build your dream castle, or you risk losing the opportunity to share your beauty with the world.”

As a company run by two impressive businesswomen, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Thanks for sharing, Alex! Be sure to visit Hearst Castle during your next trip to the Central Coast to admire Julia Morgan’s work up close.

What We Love: This amazing birds-eye view of Inn at the Cove shows that when we say “oceanfront,” we mean it! Jasmine and Trevor of The Abel Ones are a husband and wife duo who have perfected content creation and were so kind as to provide us with some beautiful photos of our property and surrounding coastline during their recent stay.

Congratulations, Corinne! Corinne was randomly selected as our winner for March’s #CentralCoasting contest. As her prize, she’ll enjoy a FREE 1-night stay at the Martin Resorts property of her choosing. But just because she was randomly selected doesn’t mean we don’t love her photo…

What We Love: We can’t get enough of family-friendly shots like this! There’s nothing like spending some father-daughter time strolling the beach just steps away from Avila Lighthouse Suites on a Spring afternoon.
