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!

For such a small place ,it had all the comforts of home.We cooked our meals in the nice kitchen.We called it paradise because our room was steps to the ocean.We cant wait to go back.Once we stopped at the grocery store we never left the hotel except to step out the door to the beach

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!

Amy and Lisa are great! Wonderful place to take the family for vacation! The efficiencies are clean and well-kept. Pets are treated like family. Heading back for a month in June! Looking out for the sea wall!

Great place to take our toddler because it is directly on the beach. So after swimming for a while we would go up, take a nap, then head back for more fun. The only downside is that our room was facing a local bar and it was rockin that night. We brought a small white noise machine so that helped.... More

My partner and I stayed at the Sun Burst Inn in January of 2015 and would definitely recommend staying here. The location is fantastic, right on the beach and the small property is very quiet which is exactly what we were looking for. The review are all pretty accurate. This is a 'no frills' place to stay and as long... More

We recently spent one night and day at the Sun Burst Inn. I must say that we were definitely happy. Our room was not very big but perfect for the two of us. Very Clean, comfy bed and on the beach, what else can you ask for? Parking is limited to one car per room so don't expect to have... More

So sorry if you had a yappy neighbor. We try to tell people not to leave their dogs alone if they bark but they evidently can't hear the dog so certainly can't hear us complaining LOL. Our manager leaves her cell phone number on the office door and has come back on more than one occaision to call owners to... More

This is a cute hotel on the beach just steps away from the water. It's not your typical hotel, it's even better with an at home feel. The room was very spacious with a full kitchen and a tv in the kitchen and the bedroom. Not a lot of hotels accept dogs but I was so excited they did. The... More

Family ( 3 generations ) vacation. 2 super cute, clean and functional rooms. One with full kitchen, the other an efficiency. Everything we hoped for was there. The beach just outside the doors, all sorts of chairs for the beach, umbrellas if you needed them and a fire pit for nighttime gatherings. Outdoor showers to clean the sand off were... More
