Perfect quiet spot to walk out onto the beach - so simple to take a dip and just walk right back to the room to shower off. Or just sit under an umbrella in the grassy courtyard, and watch the waves. It's not set up for being chic or trendsetting - no fancy extras. Just the basics, done nicely.
Friendly owners and helpful staff, just as everyone else has said. They were happy to help us out with extra sheets & towels, etc. Though we got a bit of a scolding for trying to take our expensive bicycles inside our room to keep them safe overnight.
The room wasn't quite what I hoped for - a bit stuffy, a bit kitschy, not much light, not enough wall outlets, and a very soft springy bed that gave me neck ache - the one thing that would really improve for me is a much firmer mattress.
Otherwise fine - everything was clean and neat, kitchenette in good shape, plenty spacious for 2 people.
Patio area is clean, well kept and a place you can chat with the other guests and the owners. They take a lot of care over the space. It's south of the broadwalk, so most food and nightlife is about 1mi. on the other hand theres no commotion, just a few joggers coming by.
Good wifi coverage indoors and out (loved getting work done on a beach chair).
Overall: don't expect frills or special extras but would definitely go
back for some quiet, friendly down time.
