Pacific-Coast-Highway-Travel.com has just released its comprehensive iPhone app with hand-picked accommodation suggestions and reviews for all along the Pacific Coast Highway from Seattle to San Diego.
The app is available immediately in the iTunes App Store for the introductory price of $0.99, and can be downloaded from http://www.guidegecko.com/pchh-app.html.
To celebrate the launch, one lucky person is about to win a free night in Carmel – or maybe even two. The winner (and one guest, sharing the room) will receive one free night at the writers’ favorite inn along the Pacific Coast Highway: the beautiful Vagabond’s House Inn in romantic Carmel.
If you travel between January and March 2012, the Inn will throw in a second night as part of the prize. The competition runs until 31st August 2011. To participate, answer three simple questions on http://www.guidegecko.com/contest/c,193, the information for which is all contained in the app.
The app includes over 200 hand-picked accommodation options ranging from guesthouses to inns and hotels, with many historic and unusual choices at various price ranges. A bonus section on California Wine Country is also included. All reviews are written by award-winning travel writers Mike Gerrard and Donna Dailey.
The app also features photos for every hotel as well as offline maps to save on roaming charges for international visitors.

“It was surprisingly easy to produce the app. We worked with the clever guys at GuideGecko, whose technical wizardry took our book and, once we’d found photos for all the hotels, turned it into an app at the push of a button.” says Mike Gerrard, co-owner of Pacific-Coast-Highway-Travel.com. “It took just 7 weeks from the first email to the app appearing in the Apple Store”, he adds.
