General Info & Policies


Check-in is at 4:00 p.m. and check-out is by 11:00 a.m. on the departure date, unless previously arranged with the front desk.  Due to our small size, we typically cannot accommodate an early check-in or late departure.


Complimentary hot coffee, pastries and fruit available each morning from 6am to 10am daily in the Front Office Lobby.


Our outdoor pool is available to guests between 7am and 10pm. The pool is not heated, however, during the summer months the pool tends to be the perfect temperature to cool down in after enjoying the beautiful warm sunshine at the beach.


Transient Occupancy Tax is charged on the room rate only. There are no additional fees.


To guarantee your reservation, we require a valid credit card. Unless otherwise stated at time of reservation, we do not charge your card in advance except for July 1-7 and holiday/event periods which require prepayment in full at the time of reservation.
