This was our 3rd trip to Out by the Sea B&B, and we had a blast! Ms. Carol always takes good care of us! Fun, relaxing, delicious breakfasts, close to the beach and the Big Store and restaurants! We always look forward to our next trip to the B&B! One of my daughters cried most of the way home because... More

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Out by the Sea and Ms. Carole! The house was very clean, accommodating and comfortable. She made the best sausage gravy for breakfast, set my girls their own special places at the breakfast table and made pancakes, especially for them. We, absolutely, enjoyed our stay here and will be back!

Just returned from staying here. The place is small and close to the beach. Has a Great Location! However, upon arriving at the Pirates Den the place had not been cleaned. The bedding smelled of a sweaty man, there are only 2 small window AC units that were not sufficient enough to cool the place down. I stayed on top... More

These were 5 ladies who from the moment they arrived wanted the balance of their bill discounted.. Within 5 minutes, one of the ladies came to tell me she found a bit of sand in the refrigerator and wanted money off of the bill. \She informed me that they clean houses for a living and were diligent in their work....

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
