Why refreshing? The service was friendly, courteous and homely. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The amenities such as the BBQ with pantry were excellent. Close walk to Main Street and the beach was very convenient. Our 3 days staying here were a pleasure and it was difficult to leave.

Had an overnight stay. Room clean. Bed comfortable. Location perfect. Walked to the beach, restaurants and pier! Service friendly and helpful. Pool beautiful. Unfortunately some noisy late night drunk guests spoiled an otherwise fantastic experience.
