By The Sea has been run by the same family for over 40 years and it shows by how they treat their guests - like friends and family. We stayed 3 nights and after the first morning staff remember my dairy allergy at breakfast the following days. That really made an impression of how much they care and pay attention.... More

I had booked this place sight unseen and was hoping it would be okay. It was more than okay; it was fabulous! I had two rooms; one with a king bed for us and the other for my daughters with a queen and a twin. Perfect! Rooms were lovely, quiet, a little small but you don't spend any time in... More

We stayed here for two nights on 1st July. It was delightful, everything you could possibly need. It is situated on the beach with towels and sun loungers provided. Coffee and lemonade served all day. Superb breakfast. Perfect break. We were visiting from the UK.

This is just a wonderful place to stay. It's right on the beach, the room was large, and the owners pay a lot of attention to the details. The breakfasts were also really nicely done. They supply beach chairs, towels, all-day tea and coffee, and just generally seem to care about your stay.

The staff is very friendly whether your 1st or 50th visit. The rooms are spotless and comfortable. And when they... More

We have been staying at By The Sea for several years and each time our stay is perfect. We recently celebrated our 50th Anniversary with a stay here and the hosts pleasantly surprised us with flowers, sparkling wine and chocolates in our room upon arrival. Hospitality is top shelf as is the breakfast prepared fresh daily. The staff is very... More

We just spent the most delightful weekend By the Sea, celebrating our 30th anniversary. From the warm welcome we received to the smell of fresh baked cookies in the veranda overlooking the neatest beach you will find (raked every morning), we could not have been more comfortable. Our room was spotless, fresh, clean and very comfortable, great shower pressure! The... More

The location is scenic and comfortable but the staff makes this place superb. Tom Baluk creates a wonderful breakfast that starts the day just right, and his humorous repartee would put anyone in a good mood. Pastor keeps the place sparkling inside and out!

I found this Inn on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed, on the contrary, this is an exceptional find! The breakfasts are the best I've had at a B & B, cooked by Tom to perfection. My friend and I felt like we were with family and it was obvious the staff work as a team. The location is great and... More
