We just returned home from another incredible vacation at the Rainbow. My husband and I go down each year and we always stay at the Rainbow. We love that it is not a huge hotel and the fact that we are literally steps from the beach and pool. It is a fabulous spot to stay to relax and enjoy all... More

This place has it all. We found the rainbow the best rental on both coasts. The warm friendly staff is there to help with anything. Ella and Cherryl will greet you with a smile and make you feel like you've been friends for years. The grounds and warm pool are well maintained. We have stayed in a few different units... More

My husband and I along with another couple rented 2 condos during January for 1-2 weeks respectively. The condo was clean and very nice. The handyman quickly came when needed to fix a chair and we were very happy with the pool and the chairs provided. The manager Ella graciously allowed our over 55 fraternity brothers and wives to use... More

The pot of gold at the Rainbow, Is that Rainbow on the Ocean is just that , right on the ocean. Not across the street, A great find, NOT a big commercialized hotel that charges you an additional 10 to 20 bucks a night to park when you are already paying for a room. Ella and the rest of the...

Just returned from a one week stay at this wonderful little hotel. This hotel is in a great location, right on the beach, clean, quiet and very well managed. All the staff are all friendly, professional and extremely helpful with suggestions and recommendation of things to do in the area. Having a full kitchen is a plus along with several... More

My husband and I rented for the month of March a 1 bedroom condo. The units are mostly private, individually owned so they are all furnished differently. It is a small "mom and pop" place that is very charming. Right on the beach with a sand deck, plenty of lounge chairs with a few cabanas make it so easy to... More

Stayed for 6 days in a hotel unit. Our room was clean and included some dishes, a microwave and frig. Definitely an older property and could use some work, but again it was clean, the grounds and pool are nice and you are right on the ocean. It's a great value for the location. We had a couple of maintenance... More

My husband and I enjoyed our second year at Rainbow on the Ocean. We were pleased with our stay. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The grounds are very well maintained. The views are wonderful, we cannot wait to return next year. We recommend this place as a welcome respite from "Old man Winter" Marilou and John

As such, each owner and management has an interest in maintaining the integrity of their property and an interest in ensuring the safety and enjoyment of all of our guests. Accordingly, there are policies that we must follow. When there is a need to review those policies with... More
