Not sure what is going on here, but this is place has some issues. Place was more mess than charm. Upon arrival, owner said she was having a surgery procedure the next day and couldn't have breakfast for us. It was like visiting a relative you don't know very well or haven't seen in a really long time, except there... More

At Out By The Sea we strive hard to please our guests. My surgery was not planned, and I had to be at the hospital at 5am. I did tell these guests the evening before that I was very sorry but surgery was unexpectedly planned early the next morning. I did offer to have their breakfast ready and just to... More

I just love Bed and Breakfasts and the beach so it is with out question that I say Out By The Sea is one of my very favorite Bed and Breakfast spots! The rooms are pretty, clean, comfortable, and the overall atmosphere of this B & B is uniquely charming. There is a wonderful home cooked breakfast every morning, with... More

This bed and breakfast is amazing and quaint. We had an outside room on the second floor. You walk on the deck and it is so peaceful, the ocean waves and stars. Mrs. Carole is an excellent host, and helpful with restaurants and things to do. Really enjoyed our trip and we plan to go back and bring the kids.

If you are headed to Crystal Beach on Bolivar Peninsula, affordable places to stay can be an issue. Out by the Sea B&B proved to be a good option. Nice room, good breakfast .. Great fun talking with the owner.

We stayed in Regatta & loved it! Owner is completely warm & thoughtful. Walking distance to beach & overall great experience. We brought our kids & owner gave them souvenirs to take back home. It's exactly what I imagined a bed & breakfast to be like but better. Hope this helps:-)!

OK Folks, I got the poop but I will tell you that later. All the bad reviews are pre-IKE and pre-Carole so Trip Advisor needs to delete those except for Ms. Bento's, it is from 2012 and she didn't tell you the entire story. First, Carole reminds me of my favorite aunt that I don't get to see all that... More

Out by the Sea is the best of the best! I couldn't & wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. The location is ideal, the food is delicious and the hostess is lovely. The rooms are oh so clean and oh so comfortable. It's a 3 minute walk to the beach, the smell of that sweet sea air and the beauty... More

Visited Out by the Sea B&B last weekend with my sweetheart and one each of our teenaged kids. We had the most amazing time! Carole really treated us like we were family. It's obvious why she gets so many return guests. I can't wait to get back. The house is on large piers, with extensive decking - all of which... More

My family and I stayed here for the weekend and loved every minute of it. The rooms are great and the service is greater. Carol made us feel right at home and gave us every accommodation including her cooking and friendliness. The patio is beautiful and relaxing with the hammocks and the garden. It is very close to the beach,... More
