My husband and I stayed at the Addy Sea for four night. It is an absolutely fantastic place - quiet and very peaceful. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Breakfasts are scrumptious. We will definitely come back.

Great sea scenery from our bedroom window. Nice room. Very Good breakfast. Fireplace in the LR felt warm and cozy. Enjoyable guests. We felt fortunate to have clear weather but it was a bit cold. Bethany is a lovely town and the B and B's location perfect. It was well

I've lost track of how many times we've visited the Addy Sea over the last 10 years, but it's the kind of place we'll keep returning to. The ocean front location is wonderful, as are the rooms, the views, the food, and the service!

Love the idea that we can get away and still be at the beach . it is good just to sit and listen to the music, color the shells, read a book, meet new friends. And have a breakfast that you would not believe. Donna it a fanatic cook, she even took the time to make something

are you pet friendly?
No, they are not pet-friendly. (They are not even kid-friendly!) Adults only and it's great that way.

Do any of your rooms have private balconies and ocean views?
Rooms #10, third floor ocean front, rooms #6, 7, second floor ocean front corners, are the three rooms with 'ocean front views.' Rooms #9, 11, third floor each have limited 'side ocean views.' Other rooms have very limited 'ocean glimpse' views from windows in room. No rooms have a balcony. There is a nice first floor L-shaped wrapped porch, very wide with ample rocking, single and love seat style seating with tables for eating, and also side/coffee tables available. The porch overlooks front view of 'house' towards beach, only with views of the short expanse of yard/grass, and the sand dunes/grasses that are higher than the beach and which obscures the view but one is still able to enjoy the breeze and the sounds of the surf and fowl. Room #10 is the premier room with a view.

"Room #8 is not great for tall people. My husband is over 6" and the ceiling was a little bit too low for him. "
"We very much felt our room was very nice. "
"everything was fine"
"All the rooms we have stayed in are great but our favorites would be the ones that face the ocean, fantastic views!"
"The web site is very helpful in finding a room. We chose an ocean view."
