The Last Word exceeded our expectations with a warm and friendly staff that met our every need. The ocean front view was a beautiful place to sit and enjoy the scenery. It was a fabulous place to celebrate our 25th Anniversary!

A weekend get away, great location on the beach, five star rooms and service at a surprisingly reasonable rate. The gourmet breakfast watching the early morning surfers on a perfect sunny wind still morning was the highlight.

Everything was perfect! A very romantic property located in Long Beach, ideal for couples travelling. the beach in front of the property was incredible, perfect for picnic and walks on the beach. The staff was really helpful and it felt like a home away from home!
