I have been to the Sea Breeze several times in the past decade with my husband and I cannot imagine staying anywhere else. It is very close to the center of town, but yet is so private, with a truly magical setting. Even at the height of the season, there is no noise from the very busy bars in town.
I love room 10 which has a little front porch and looks out over two ponds and the ocean beyond. It is such a restful and lovely spot and the room, actually a small suite, is simply and beautifully decorated-no Victorian frou-frou. I brought my daughter this time and she was totally charmed both with the island and the inn. Jennifer, the manager, provided us with bikes, which we rented at a very reasonable cost, and enjoyed pedaling around the island. Jennifer is very lovely and accommodating. Every morning she brings breakfast in a basket, another charming Sea Breeze touch. Since my last visit, there are more breakfast choices, a nice change from just pastries.
One minor thing that I almost hesitate to bring up, since everyone on the staff was so nice. I was a little surprised that the staff did very little to tidy and make up the room the second day. I did not lower my ranking because of this, since I am sure if I had mentioned it, the situation would have been immediately remedied. I definitely will continue to come back.
