We stayed at the Gables 2 which is down the street from the Gables. We were on the second floor. There were 3 couples and we had 3 of the rooms on the second floor. There are 6 rooms total with 2 bathrooms that are shared. Thought that might be a problem but it was not. There was always a bathroom open when needed. The rooms in the back of the building had more windows so there was a nice breeze for sleeping. There were also ceiling fans as there is no Air conditioning. We loved the location and spent a lot of time of the second floor deck relaxing. Its a quick walk across the street and you are on the beach. Although if you are up to it I would either walk along the beach, ride a bike or taxi to the other end of the town beach. It is much nicer there-no seaweed or rocks and nice waves for body surfing even on calm days. The Inn provided beach chairs, umbrellas, towels and coolers which was great as you didn't have to bring them from home. Plenty available. Continental breakfast is juice, coffee, tea and packaged pastries so if you are looking for more there is a bagel shop and a Juice and Java shop within 1 block. Would stay again as we loved the location!
