Efficiency rooms are open year-round and come with two double beds or one king bed, a full kitchen, free Wi-Fi and TVs. Certain efficiency rooms are also pet-friendly. All rooms have either a private patio or balcony, as well. Rollaway beds are available for an additional fee. Children ages 10 and under always stay for free when sharing a room with their parents or guardians. Additional guests in rooms are charged an extra $10 per night. Minimum-night stays are required during holidays and the summer season. Check-in is at 2 p.m. and check-out is at 11 a.m. There is an onsite pool for fun, though the beach is nearby. There is no restaurant, so families should enjoy meals together at local eateries instead.

What a lovely place to stay. Great staff, terrific view, and, all of our needs met, from a nice breakfast, to homemade brownies in the afternoon. Lots of hospitable touches !! I would definitely make this my destination if traveling in the area.
Not sure how beds are in all rooms but we had one soft and one hard bed which was perfect for us. There was a lot of space in each room. The staff is very friendly. The room was spotless. Breakfast had local breads.
