We believe that we offer the best value on the beach for many a fair mile as attested by our regular guests who consider us to be the best kept secret along the coast and, of course, the Inn place to be.

Like the Swallows of Capistrano, our guests always return. We look forward to making your visit a memorable and enjoyable experience.
