We had a fantastic experience at Faraway. As soon as we arrived to check in, we already started talking about extending our trip. The grounds, common areas, and rooms are beautiful and extremely well maintained. The property is well located and the available bikes are a welcome bonus for trips to the beaches. The entire staff is excellent. We specifically appreciated Nemmy’s willingness to go above and beyond to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. We were also lucky enough to be staying on property when they had the grand opening of the house restaurant. The ambiance and food couldn’t be beat, and our server, Olivia, was a delight.

We were not forewarned that the dining area and bar were under construction and unavailable to guests. We had to walk two blocks to get a cup of coffee. When I complained that the website was misleading regarding the availability of the bar and restaurant, I was assured that we would receive a credit on our bill. That never happened. This was not the luxury hotel experience described on the website.

We enjoyed our stay at Faraway! We stayed in the two bedroom suite in the Gate House, the room was great! Unfortunately the restaurant wasn't open yet but we look forward to coming back once its open.

The location is top notch, and the courtyard is very nice, but the room was extremely overpriced for one with a shared bathroom. I understand supply and demand, but simple things such as a bottle of water or even a glass for water were not available, and not even in the shared bathroom. AC was old and loud as well.
