This place was even better than expected, and we were expecting a lot based on the TripAdvisor reviews. Matt and Ernesto were wonderful hosts - the continental breakfast was well stocked with fresh fruit, strong coffee, and individual refrigerated containers of milk for cereal and orange juice. Muffins, bagels, etc. The grounds were private and well maintained. We stayed in Room 10, which is a two bedroom apartment style on the second floor. Queen sized beds and there was plenty of room to walk around and feel comfortable. Well air conditioned and two refrigerators! Three TVs were more than we could watch. From the balcony outside the front door (there was another balcony outside the back door), you could sit comfortably and see the beach and waves - very nice. If you want FAST access to Sebastian Beach, this is the only place to stay. I believe I read some reviews that said you are 5 minutes from the beach, but they must have been crawling. 60 seconds maximum. It might take 30 more seconds to get your feet wet once you make it to the sand. Location location location. The place is probably 50 years old, but it has updated amenities and has a wonderfully quaint feel that others have also written about. We will stay here again, and recommend this place. Very reasonable rates. Can't say too many good things about it. Even the geckos here have gotten fat sunning themselves right next to the pool!
