I had to find a place in a hurry to stay a few nights before we could get a plane home. There was a Mardi Gras celebration on the beach, and what better place to be if we're stuck in FL than on the beach right? I didn't expect to find any open rooms at a decent rate, and called around without much luck. I spotted this B&B on my list but kept calling other places. Well, my girlfriend likes B&Bs so why not? Mike answered, room is available, right price, just steps to the beach, come on down. "You don't need a credit card to hold the room? No, just come on in."
We dropped off our bags and went for a walk down the beach broadwalk to find some dinner at a place Mike suggested. We stayed out longer than expected, but had no problem arriving “home” late. Breakfast the next morning was delicious; much better than I make at home and worth the stay on its own. Ours was a cozy room on the corner of the house so we opened the windows to let the breeze off the beach and the sound of the waves wash through.
The place was quiet during the day and evening even with a lot of other people staying there. We had good conversation over breakfast and Mimosas the next morning as we met some of the folks that were staying there. Mike and Diane must attract good people.
How’s the service? As soon as we got through security at the airport I realized I’d left something kind of large and awkward on the bed. No problem, Mike graciously figured out how to box it up and get it to me.
It’s a beautiful place with beautiful people, good food, great location, and I look forward to staying more than a couple of days next time.
