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

7/23/12 I have stayed twice at this B&B, once alone, now with my Mother and sister. First time I stayed in one of the Honeymoon rooms which sits right on the deck so you can open your door for the constant joy of the beach breezes. Carole was such a wonderful hostess and I enjoyed my time so much I... More

The website gives you the impression that this is a B&B with lots of rooms that are very separate from the owner's living space. This is not true. We stayed in the Regatta room and it was basically just a bedroom in someone's house. That's fine if that was what we paid for, or what was billed on the website,... More

Out By The Sea Bed & Breakfast has two rooms inside the main home and three rooms in a separate location. The Regatta is located in the main home. Referencing the above review it is clear that some guests adore staying in a Bed & Breakfast and there are others that prefer a home rental. We made every effort possible... More
