Guest needs anticipated and provided!

4.0 on April 07, 2015

This inn is all about service, anticipating every need and then providing them, coolers, beach chairs, sun towels, bikes etc. Breakfast to skip the diet over! The friendliest innkeeper you will encounter and with so much taken care of for you, just sit back on the upper veranda and rock and sip something hot or cold anytime of the night or day. You'll hate to leave. The scale isn't working to rate this, but it is 5 star all the way!
