Room very crowded and cluttered. No place to put bags; no drawers to use. Used Kleenex behind one bed. Living/Dining/Kitchen terribly cluttered. So much stuff you wondered what was clean or dirty. Breakfast was to be served 8:30-9. OK first two days. Third morning Carol had health issues and it was after 10 am when she showed up to cook... More

It is a suprise and a dissapointment to read this review by Beverly. Beverly and her husband/boyfriend were placed in the largest room, The Regatta. This room has 2 queen beds, a coffee station, small refrig, micro and large flat screen TV and wifi. I will post a picture of this room. The room is large and not cluttered. Breakfast... More

Scheduled our one night stay after asking many detailed questions, and repeating the questions. Confirmed many times we were gettin the "outside room for $175" They called me back, said the owner was sick it was a big mistake. If we want to stay we get the inside room, between the entrance and the kitchen. You hear every noise. This... More

This review is strange There are 2 doors between Lafitte and the main home. She did spend the night and had a large homemade breakfast. The flat screen TV does work, there are 2 remotes, she probably used the wrong remote, we have direct TV in all rooms. NEVER before have we had a complaint on a noise factor. This... More

Carol and her daughter are 2 of the sweetest ladies my family has met in a long time. The room was so homey and inviting and it felt like being somewhere familiar and cozy. The lengths that Dawn went through to make sure we were happy was amazing and the breakfast both mornings was great. We were so happy with... More

The room is great! The service is wonderful! The deck is wonderful! The two minute stroll to the beach is awesome! As I sit here listening to the waves rolling up on shore, I highly recommend the peacefulness!

Out By The Sea was absolutely amazing and so was Ms. Carole. This was our first time staying at a B&B and was surprised by the amount of food that was served for breakfast each morning. My husband is a big eater and the food just kept on coming until everyone at the table was full. We rented the Honeymoon... More

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Out by the Sea and Ms. Carole! The house was very clean, accommodating and comfortable. She made the best sausage gravy for breakfast, set my girls their own special places at the breakfast table and made pancakes, especially for them. We, absolutely, enjoyed our stay here and will be back!
