Literally, our memories go back to this beautiful place with its wonderful hosts, Gayle and Rodney. Our kids (four and ten years old) could not pass the office without dropping in to share their new day's excitement with either of them and were always met with a kind smile and were welcome for a friendly conversation. The suite was big... More

I can't say enough about this little gem. I go crazy on vacation planning especially when it come to cleanliness. After all the great reviews I decided to book the weekend for my daughter and I. Gayle and Rodney were so accommodating and helpful. They have anything you might need so you don't have to bring everything with you. I... More

Gayle and Rodney are the consummate hosts. They work hard to get 5 star ratings and they really deserve it. Rodney always knew the best food around for time of day and day of the week. They made sure any needs we had were met, and were always friendly. Gayle went out of her way to make sure we felt... More

Easy two block walk to the Beach and they offered us chairs, umbrellas, coolers, sunscreen, beach towels, beach toys, etc. We had the unfortunate... More

Stayed here for 4 nights for a family vacation. I can't get over how awesome Rodney and Gayle were. They were the most accommodating hosts we've ever dealt with. We had the Jungle Suite and it was as advertised. The location doesn't get any better. Short walk to the beach and great eats nearby. Rodney gave us a ton of... More

The Blue Wave Motel is a great place! This is a cute little place tucked back a couple streets from the ocean front, making it a nice quiet little place where you can listen to the music playing over at Pearly's Beach Eats. It takes like 3 minutes to walk to the beach. Rodney and Gayle are wonderful people and... More
