This was our 2nd stay at Cottages by the Sea. 2 years ago we went as a group of 4. This time we went as a group of 12 and everyone loved it! We have raved about Cottages for 2 years and this time brought my sister and her two kids ages 8 & 10 along with several other friends. A grand time was had by all!
We stayed in Cruzan, Chocolate, Coconut and Calabash and everyone loved their room. You are 20-30 steps from the beach from your front door. You can't ask for a better spot! The water here is very calm, which makes for great snorkeling and sea glass hunting :-) If we needed to go back to the room to get something or sit on the porch and enjoy another cup of coffee, we never had to worry about the kids being in the water alone, as we were close enough to see them playing in the calm waters.
There was never more than 15 people on the beach at any given time -- it's just that perfect! The rooms are quaint and come equipped with anything you need to enjoy your stay. We used the bbq grills under the gazebo a few nights and prepared the accompanying side dishes in the room and all dined together on the tables/chairs provided in the gazebo. It was fabulous!
They provide bikes, kayaks, a library full of books, beach toys, snorkel gear, etc for their guests at no charge. Their staff (hi Carmen!) is very accommodating and friendly and make you feel like family!
This place is truly one of my favorite places to spend my time. Thank you, Paul for another great experience!! Looking forward to our next visit!
