The view out the back is great and beautiful grounds. Cute town as well. Also, very quiet which was unexpected Bathroom was small and the shower was smaller. Breakfast box wasn't nutritional so go to Robert Morris instead for food.

Dear 156edj, Thank you for sharing that you had a nice visit with us in Oxford, MD. We are glad you got to enjoy our historic town and property. If you would like more fruit or another substitution for baked goods in your breakfast basket we can plan for that. I would suggest a deluxe suite with a luxury bathroom and porch the next time you come. We try to explain ahead that the beach view king rooms have small bathrooms, but they are some of our most popular because of their large waterfront porches. Sorry, we didn't meet all your expectations. We hope to see you next year. Safe travels & Happy Holidays, Ben Gibson - Innkeeper

Dear h0llysapp, That is wonderful you all are planning to come back to Sandaway once again! Thanks for sharing how much you enjoyed your stay and that you are repeat guests.

Hi Dawn, We specialize in peace and quiet. Sandaway's accommodations are well built and other people's noise should not be an issue. Our property is adults only to help ensure quiet. I hope it works out for you to come visit Sandaway Suites & Beach. Safe travels, Ben Gibson - Innkeeper

Yes Al, We do have some very nice waterfront rooms and suites on the first floor. The Bay View King has a large walk-in shower. There is not an elevator to the upper floors, but you have some great choices on the 1st floor. I hope it works out for you all to come. Safe travels, Ben Gibson - Innkeeper

Sorry for delay. Yes you can swim. However be prepared with some water shoes since there are stones and shells. There is another public beach a stones throw away. Also a little seaweedy but what else can you expect. Enjoy! I did!
