Even though we had no chance to stay overnight, because there were no rooms left, Joe gave us good advice where to go and saved us from a long ride back to NYC! Thanks Joe, we made it and we´ll be back for a stay and not just pass by :)! Have a great summer! Berit from Frankfurt/Germany

Rooms are very clean, large kitchen area with a full size refrigerator. Nice outside area to grill or just use table and chairs for take out. Owner is so friendly and helpful, makes you feel like family. Great location, quieter than being on the Boulevard. Easy walk to the beach.
