Small sprigs of flowers are placed in your bungalow every day when serviced. It is quiet as situated back from the road by the beach. The people that run it are... More

My husband, myself and adult son stayed for 2 weeks at Sunhaven in early August and loved everything about it. The best feature of the property is the location. It is superb, absolute beachfront and we had the added bonus of seeing whales from our deck on most days. Sunhaven is also very quiet and peaceful and with the pool... More

Sunhaven is a great find. So tranquil and right on the beach. The sunsets were amazing and this is very close to lots of great restaurants and only 10 minutes to town for supplies. The rooms are very clean. Thanks Patti and Dennis.
