Affordable Lodging at Jalama Beach?


The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a plan to provide Jalama Beach with affordable overnight lodging, including yurts — popular at Lake Cachuma — and cabins. The project was suggested in the wake of the demolition of the old, affordable Miramar Hotel and the in-limbo construction of the new, high-end Miramar Beach Resort; the county required its developer Rick Caruso to pay $1.395 million to create new low-cost beach accommodations. Caruso paid that fee last April, and the county has until April 2022 to use it. The yurts can sleep six people and will cost $150-$200 a night.
