7/23/12 I have stayed twice at this B&B, once alone, now with my Mother and sister. First time I stayed in one of the Honeymoon rooms which sits right on the deck so you can open your door for the constant joy of the beach breezes. Carole was such a wonderful hostess and I enjoyed my time so much I... More

The website gives you the impression that this is a B&B with lots of rooms that are very separate from the owner's living space. This is not true. We stayed in the Regatta room and it was basically just a bedroom in someone's house. That's fine if that was what we paid for, or what was billed on the website,... More

Referencing the above review it is clear that some guests adore staying in a Bed & Breakfast and there are others that prefer a home rental. We made every effort possible... More

Traveling to Crystal Beach for the first time, I had no idea what to expect. I am so incredibly impressed with the first-class, reasonably-priced amenities offered at Out by the Sea B & B and its owner, Carole Hamadey. The décor and details of all the rooms, which fortunately I saw during my weeklong stay, are impeccably designed, ever so... More

My daughter and I stayed for 2 nights and was treated as old friends! Very clean, sit out on the balcony and watch the sea roll in-or walk the 2 minutes it will take you-or drive-about 10 seconds! Best place to stay on Crystal Beach-DO NOT STAY AT THE HOTELS! There are beach toys you can take to the beach,... More
