Before moving to the area, we stayed in several of the “couples" options for single night reservations along 30a for anniversary trips (vs. most beach houses which rent by the week). As someone who prioritizes comfort, cleanliness, memorable breakfasts, and proximity to the beach as my most important factors in selecting an establishment - in my book Lisbeth’s B&B hands-down wins and is a much better value than the rest. I know hotels and B&Bs are apples and oranges, but I also know that couples may be contemplating all the options like we did. I have twice now found Lisbeth’s to be more enjoyable of a stay than the area’s “luxury hotels” and Lisbeth’s location is actually a shorter walk to the beach: you just walk out the front door, cross the street, walk a small path and go down a sand hill. At the other places we had to go down long hallways, ride elevators, walk through resorts or cross large green-spaces, and then take large ramps or stairs down to the actual beach. (And neither of the hotels include beach chairs and an umbrella - in WaterColor it is an extra $25+ a day and in Rosemary Beach we were charged a separate “daily resort fee” to cover the cost whether we used them or not.) At the hotels, rates are double-to-triple the cost, meanwhile the kindness at Lisbeth’s exceeds what we experienced at the other properties. This week I returned to Lisbeth’s for three nights (Little Tokyo room) while moving across town, and it was wonderful to come "home" each day to such a relaxing respite. I slept soundly and woke to bountiful breakfasts and great company and conversation. Whether you are coming from out own town or having a “staycation” like I did, this bed and breakfast is a special find along Highway 30a. And thanks again, Lis and Tom, for all your warm hospitality!

My wife and I stayed a couple nights (8/12-8/14/2013). Tom and Lisbeth are wonderful hosts. Breakfast was so good we stole a couple recipes. The room was comfortable, clean and cold albeit a bit small and in need of some shelf space. View from the patio to the gulf was nice despite the rain. We brought our bicycles and rode the 30A bike path from end to end. Lots of back streets to ride and explore. Many good restaurants within a mile. Whisky Bravo has excellent grouper and views. But the best part of the stay was meeting Mickey Mantle. This is without a doubt the best dog ever. We will stay again when we are in the 30A area, even if Tom has the no vacancy sign out.

We loved our stay at Lisbeths. It was the perfect getaway in the perfect place. The food is delicious and there's so much to do in the area. We reccomend it highly!

We just got back from a weekend at Lisbeths Bed and Breakfast by the Sea. It was peaceful and relaxing. We enjoyed the hospitality of Lisbeth and Tom. They made us feel welcome and were perfect hosts. We stayed in the I DO room and it was beautiful. Loved the HUGE shower!

Lisbeth's B & B was a beautiful place for us to meet our friends for the weekend, celebrate a birthday, enjoy the beach, restaurants and each other. Lisbeth and Tom...and Mickey Mantle (dog) could not have been more hospitable, the house cozier or lovelier and the breakfasts more delicious! Lisbeth went out of her way to make us feel like we were staying with family. Watching the sunset from our porch was magnificent! Cannot wait to go back! D & P Moran

I loved staying at Lizbeth's bed and breakfast. The view from the second story balcony was breath taking, almost like a dream. With the remodeling and new owners i give this bed and breakfast two thumbs up. I loved waking up every morning to a fresh and hot breakfast, every morning was different! It was a spectacular experience and i will defiantly be returning. The family style that Tom and Liz brought to atmosphere brought a warm feeling to my heart and I had a incredible stay.

My wife and I booked this as a last minute choice for our anniversary trip. I talked with Lisbeth to make our reservation the night before our arrival and felt like we had made a wise choice of accommodations. Our room was the Little Tokyo and we thoroughly enjoyed the nice comfortable mattress, the newly redone bath w/rain shower head and the cooling ceiling fan. Tom's breakfasts were very good and we enjoyed our talks with them each morning over breakfast. The lovely beach was just across the street and they provided us with a bottle of wine and glasses and a couple of chairs at the beach to enjoy. They provided chairs and umbrellas for beach use and were great hosts to us for our three night stay in the middle of the week which is a great time to go for a less crowded and leisurely time at the beach. As regular B&B guests, we can attest that this is truly the only B&B on this stretch of 30A which is a great scenic road to rent bikes and ride alongside. Had a great visit and made some new friends in Tom and Lisbeth. May God bless their B&B and those who stay with them.

We had a wonderful stay at Lisbeth's in April 2012. New owners and newly renovated. Loved the room decor, very gracious hosts, delicious breakfast (and snacks available 24 hours). We could not have asked for better. Beach chairs, umbrellas and towels available. Breathtaking beach just steps out the door. Discount at the local bike rental shop too. Thanks so much Tom and Lisbeth. We'll be back!

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying three nights at Lisbeths Bed and Breakfast by the Sea for our anniversary. Lisbeth and Tom were outstanding hosts, always ensuring we had everything we needed and making us feel most welcome. We especially enjoyed the afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres on Friday and Saturday. We spent nearly two hours each day just chatting away in the kitchen, like we were with old friends. The house was very comfortable and the room was great. Just across the street is very easy access to the beach, which was wonderful. Lisbeth and Tom even provided chairs and an umbrella. Breakfast each day was scrumptious and the coffee was always on, day or night. We cannot recommend this place enough. We will return here, without a doubt. Thank you so much for a great visit. See you soon!! Kirk & Melissa

We were there the last week of March 2012 and the new owners had thoroughly and tastefully renovated the entire B & B. The "I Do" room was amazing, easily the nicest room we've ever stayed in. So peaceful and quiet, free from spring breakers, even on the beach, just a short walk away, where they were concentrated elsewhere. They were wonderfully accommodating to food allergies for the delicious breakfast meals and we enjoyed conversation across the breakfast table. Bike trail was just across the street and restaurants within walking distance. The owners had great suggestions for others which we enjoyed as well. We've stayed at many B & Bs but this experience is at the very top of the list!!! - Missing the beach from Illinois

We stayed at the Inn and enjoyed our accommodations and the new owners. The location was great with beautiful beaches and Seaside just down the street, with nice shops and good places to eat. We hope to return in the near future.

I had a short weekend stay at Liz's B&B. Tom & Liz are very personable and great hosts. The rooms are first class. I had the opportunity to stay in the Little Tokyo. It was so nice. I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed my stay. It was a home away from home and I will certainly be back.
