This property has apparently been undergoing a complete renovation, building by building, for the past couple of years, and I'm sure it's a hundred times better than its predecessor. My husband and I rented one of their Ocean View Sundeck suites with a good sized, sunny deck overlooking the rooms one level below us, and the beach beyond. The suite was small and pleasing, but modestly decorated and included a full, tiny kitchen within the sitting area.The website indicates that the suite can sleep 6, but I would definitely not recommend more than two adults as the two sofa sleepers are in a very small room which would be overwhelmed by even two more adults. It would be suitable for a family of 4, with two younger children however.
I think the property owners are going for "luxurious" accommodations, but I would not put them in that category. The king bed was comfortable but the pillows were not and when I asked, there were no alternates available. The in-room coffee was just standard pre-packaged, there was no tea available, and bathroom amenities were not name brand. There was no desk of any type for a work/computer area and in fact, the wi-fi was very temperamental, though the staff very kindly offered to work on it (to no avail however). We were not able to lock the french doors leading out to the deck, and were told that they were "tricky." On the more positive side, the view from our room out to the ocean was excellent, the staff friendly and accommodating, the grounds kept clean and tidy, parking very convenient right outside the rooms, nice comfortable deck furniture, and a great little sandwich/ice cream shop (The Picnic Basket) at the bottom of the stairway leading down to the street.
If you are familiar with the Dream Inn just across and up the street, this property is not exactly on that level but the room prices are pretty much identical (at least at the time we stayed there), so we were expecting a bit more in the way of upscale amenities. But this property is very charming with more of a beach-town atmosphere, and we really enjoyed being able to cook in and enjoy the outdoor deck and seating area. We would definitely consider returning, now knowing what to expect.
