My husband and I just went on our baby-moon at the Victoria guest house. The house itself is very beautiful. It is a very well maintained Victorian beach house with classic wooden shingles and pitched roofs. We stayed in the cottage and found it to be quiet and charming. Though the rooms maintained a Victorian style and decor, there were modern conveniences like wi-fi there. The house and grounds are very well kept. We went on a cooler weekend, so it was a treat to dip into the heated pool. There were lots of other great amenities too. There was a fridge full of bottled water to take to the beach. The beach chairs and towels provided were great; the chairs were especially nice featuring backpack-style carrying straps, insulated pockets for cool drinks and padded neck rests. There was a fantastic breakfast spread every morning. I haven't ever had a free breakfast before at any hotel like the one provided at the Victoria. We had the option of coffee, tea, milk, orange juice, or milk to drink and then there were cereals, bagels, muffins, croissants, homemade waffles, a variety of coffee cakes, yogurts, etc to eat. All tasted fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the homemade monkey bread, which I told the owner, Judy; the proprietress nicely printed out a copy of the recipe and passed it along to us before leaving. The bikes provided for jaunting around were really cute and convenient. Everyone staying there was extremely friendly. The owners work hard to maintain a quiet and relaxing place. It made the whole stay very relaxing. It was definitely one of the better vacations I have been on in recent years. I highly recommend it!
