Where do I begin..After looking for a romantic and private getaway for my great girl and I (celebrating an anniversary as well) we stumbled on what appeared to be a perfect place for a romantic weekend. I was a bit surprised to walk into a room that was not only cold (under 50 degrees - same as the temperature that day) but also had an old fish/milk smell in the refrigerator, hot water that worked for a total of 10 minutes (3 separate times in the first 6 hours in the room) and an obviously unprepared owner that wasn't ready for this years guests. I offered to clean the fridge and was assisted by the owner (as I tried to overlook the problem). We found the best source for heat in the room came from our electric stove. We needed almost 4 hours to get the Jacuzzi filled with tepid (at best - 80 degree) water we turned the Jacuzzi to watch large chunks of black scale fly from the jets as we both grew a bit ill at what may come next. When we addressed our concerns they were met with "be patient...we are fixing it and wait one hour". That was fine and I decided to make dinner - the pots and pans all needed last years food residue to be cleaned from them. After dinner we decided to try again with the Jacuzzi - again no luck . 10 minutes of hot water (enough to get a great ankle/mid calf bath but not with the jets running mind you - we couldn't get that much water in the tub.) We asked again for assistance and finally were told that "we were the problem". The owners husband decided that letting us know that "this was some way to fool around together and get out of paying him while using all of his hot water" was the best way to deal with us. I was appalled and honestly speechless (for about 2 seconds) until I decided to pack everything and leave at 11:15 p.m. to travel the 2 hours home. I was again surprised by the negotiation at the front desk when I asked for a refund and they wanted to be paid "for all that we did while we were there" - I couldn't even wash the dirty dishes from dinner without taking a break to let my hands get warm. Don't even get my started on the 3rd bedroom, with the king size bed, that was nearly impossible to get into from the metal ladder that had to be pulled down and the ceiling so low that I was unable to stand up in. As this was the room with the king bed, and the room we planned on staying in, when we mentioned this to the owner, we were told it was the "children's room". I would not have allowed young children to climb the dangerous ladder had any been with us. This is a perfect place to visit if you want to find a way to never begin a great planned vacation. I have much to be thankful for in my life and this abomination of a getaway destination is not on that list. Bring some hot water, bleach and be close to a friends house that is not too far away to enjoy this trip to the Sea Breeze. On the other hand if you want to smell the cold ocean and never leave the room in the winter - open the fridge and pour a nice cold bath and be ready for your rude awakening to begin.
