Very nice. Love the quiet and the view. Management helpful. We love to visit the coast on stormy days. The room offered a great view of the waves in the comfort of our room. The fireplace made the room very cozy.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. It was great because my wife could sleep in while I read my book by the fireplace in the living room. The oceanfront view is wonderful. The owners have obviously put a lot of thought in designing the interior. Nothing is old or worn and our room is one of the cleanest rooms... More

Amazing location for walking to restaurants, beach at your doorstep, and incredibly cozy, clean and tastefully decorated. We booked the 1 bedroom suite flagship and loved walking out on the patio and seeing the ocean waves crash right up against the wall. The craftsman style suite was styled with gorgeous wainscoting and details, generous space with living room and fireplace,... More

I took advantage of a 3 days for the price of 2 for my last stay in January 2016. And took an ocean front room. My bed ended up being a memory foam style mattress, which doesn't work for me. I contacted the front desk in the morning and they had the mattress switched to a traditional pillow top before... More

Nice place to stay. RIGHT on the beach. We ha a great view of the wild ocean and the river coming in to meet it. 2nd stay, and we'll be back. One improvement would be to open the hot tub earlier in the morning. Say 7AM.

Overnight getaway for my daughter and I we always stay at The Waves, we love the rooms, the staff and its right on the beach in the center of town! We always get our favorite room, the Jacuzzi is a great relaxer even when its stormy. Movies to borrow are a must. We highly recommend the Lighthouse rooms.

We've stayed at The Waves before but this was our first time renting the house. A great location with lots of room for a family event - we had 7 total in our group. The kitchen was plenty big with two refrigerators available and a large dining table for our family. It was absolutely beautiful to wake up each morning... More

We love winter storm watching at the beach. The beachfront Flagship studio had great views and beach access. The property is well maintained and everything we expected. Friendly owners and staff, we hope to come back!

This is the first time we've stayed here. One of the most positive things is they have a number of units that are directly on the beach. Beautiful views and easy access for a walk on the beach. It is an older property, but upgrades have been made (e.g., new bathrooms). Our unit has a small kitchenette which is certainly... More
