What u didn’t like
We went for our honeymoon, I was excited about the jacuzzi like bathtub only to have it be broken when we took a shower the water took forever to drain. The room wasn’t cleaned for the two nights we stayed and there were ants in our bathtub.!

Great get away for couples.
Beautiful B & B. Wonderful service. Front desk was a great help. Rooms were so creatively decorated. Only complaint was the bathroom wall didnt go all the way to the ceiling 😟 and mattress was a little saggy in the middle. But the bed it's self was a beautiful 4 poster bed. Also just 2 blocks way from the beach. We loved the quick walk there. Thank you!
