Our stay at the Pirate Haus Inn wasn't planned, it was a spur-of-the-moment idea. And we were not disappointed. From check-in to check-out, Andy and Conrad(who we met the next morning) were friendly, personable and eager to make sure that our accommodations were to our liking.
We stayed in the Tropical Fish Room, one of their private suites. The queen-size bed was extremely comfortable, and very clean as well. Everything was very clean, come to think of it. From the toilet to the mirror hanging on the inside of the surprisingly spacious closet's door. Clean. There was an ocean mural on the wall with a very triumphant-looking seagull, pictures of sea horses and other assorted sea creatures on the wall in the bathroom, and a tropical fish-emblazoned comforter on the bed. It felt like we were staying with friends at a cozy-yet-eccentric beach cottage, and got the best room available.
Waking up to home-made pancakes and fresh coffee really hit the mark here. Cap'n Conrad made a huge heart-shaped pancake with our names baked into it. Talk about adding a personal touch! We finished our last cup of joe in the common room, where there were lots of board games, books and movies available, as well as some toys for families traveling with their children. Another interesting thing was that there were hand-woven palm frond origami-style grasshoppers and dragonflies set up around the common areas. A friend of the owners makes them. Everyone there was really nice, out-going, and interesting.
The only negative, is actually a positive. We weren't quite ready for the construction crew outside of our window at 7:35AM. It sounded like they were about to tear our window out of it's frame, but, they seem to be nearing completion of the remodeling/restoration project on their upstairs, outdoor patio. So, we will most likely be able to take advantage of the improved amenities on our next stay, which will be as soon as our schedules permit. We really had a great time. Next time, we're booking a whole weekend.
