Friends, some of whom we rarely see but truly love, were staying for a week at a cottage. We had been invited to join them but discovered the cottage was too small to accommodate everyone. So within about two weeks of arrival, we called the Relaxinn to see if they could take us for four days. Eric looked at his schedule and figured out how to accommodate our needs. We were relieved to have a place to stay but really delighted when we were greeted and shown around.
The Relaxinn is very comfortable and well-appointed. Our bed had plenty of pillows and was truly comfortable. We slept extremely well. With the "Birds of Paradise" room, we had a sitting room too. The bath is large and even has a bar in the tub for hanging wet clothing. There are also hooks outside of each room for wet towels and clothing/beachwear. The accoutrements are well thought out and make coming back from the beach easy. There was a small frig in the room, drinking glasses, and an ice bucket. Eric and Margie have gone to a lot of trouble to ensure that the guests' surroundings are attractive as well as functional.
Wine and snacks are served at about four in the afternoon but Eric waits to know you have returned fro your outing so it does not just sit if you come in from your day later. The herbed hummus was wonderful. Eric and Margie even ask what kind of wine you like best and try to accommodate likes and dislikes. Breakfast was lovely. Not only was the food good, the other guests, plus Eric and Margie made for excellent company. We laughed through breakfast every morning. Our hosts were also careful. An allergy was discovered at the last minute and a new breakfast was prepared for the guest who suffered from the allergy. Coffee and tea are available at all times in the common area.
There is a nice hot tub and a beautiful pool. The pool area includes comfortable seating, sun protective umbrellas, and flowering plants. The Relaxinn is a great place, especially if you do not have a whole week for the beach, good food, good company, comfortable accommodation. We had a wonderful experience.
