Richard and Sharon were wonderful hosts with lots of information about where to eat and what to do. The rooms were gorgeous and wonderfully decorated. Breakfasts by Richard were gourmet style. My husband and I love to go to B and Bs and this was definitely one of the best.

Rich and Sharon were absolutely wonderful! We were only able to stay one night, but we would have loved to stay longer. They have plenty of cruiser bikes to go for a ride to the beach and along the boardwalk. Everything you need for the beach, from coolers to boogie boards, are available.
