They had a two O clock check in and they were very helpful. Rooms aren't huge, but you have a bed and a futon and a full fridge, and the beach is 15 feet from the room door. They have a nice beach front and it was a great place to watch the sunset. The staff was friendly and helpful.... More

We were booked for two nights down the road but arrived early and needed somewhere to stay. Canceled our previous reservation and checked in here for three nights, wonderful. All of the staff was great. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Ran into several other guests who had stayed here repeatedly and they all loved it. Will return.

What a treat to see that the standards are still in place and we were treated to a great Memorial Day catered buffet for free. This is what... More

You will really enjoy the laid back feel, gorgeous sunsets, we stayed in the penthouse unit and it is absolutely beautiful. Amy and the owners Michael and Marilyn are wonderful. We even extended our time! We'll definitely be back again!

This is a fun mom and pop place. The rooms and furnishings are like stepping back in time, but it is very clean and comfortable. The location is perfect! There is a grill and fire pit for guest use with beautiful beach access. We would definitely stay again!
