Advantages of Staying at our Family Owned Inn vs Large Multiple Use Hotels – updated 1/11/2023

I want to talk to you about why staying at our Bed and Breakfast Inn is the perfect choice of lodging when you need a relaxing escape compared to staying at a large, multiple use hotel.

We provide the important components of a relaxing escape – Convenience, Privacy & Security, Personalized Service and Value.

We cater to adults (children over the age of 14 are welcome) and offer uniquely decorated King rooms with a water or Lighthouse view, and a private entrance by your parking space, making it easy to move in for your stay.

The quiet streets by our property mean practically no traffic noise providing a more restful atmosphere and allowing you to enjoy the sights and sounds of the seashore….sailboats,sea breezes, sunsets, seagulls, just outside your window. Larger hotels in our area are often located on main highways and your view may include oncoming or departing traffic.

With just 8 units there are generally no more than 16 guests on premise. And your innkeeper is on call 24/7 to correct anything affecting your comfort.

Three local restaurant/bars are within a short walk but not on premise so we don’t get the noise or restaurant smells either. And our patrons are permitted to bring their own food and drink to our lovely rooftop deck or by the pool.

Besides private entrances to all units, our facility is not accessible to the public. All entrances are locked and our registered guests are given the codes. This extra feature keeps our guest areas exclusive to our family of registered guests, unlike larger hotels that may have restaurants, meetings or weddings going on with an influx of visitors not actually staying there.

Upon check in, or as soon as possible thereafter, each guest is offered a personal tour of the facility where the innkeeper goes over information about the Sand Castle, the local area and the features of your room. You are given the innkeeper’s personal cell number for easy round-the-clock access to her and any questions will be answered.

This is perhaps the most important feature to consider. Our room rate includes every amenity we offer. No upcharge for parking here and it is self parking, not valet so you always have immediate access to your vehicle. Our breakfast is included and home cooked. All baked goods are baked in our ovens. Complimentary tea/coffee & soft drinks are available 24/7. Wifi is free, bicycle rentals are free, beach chairs, towels, passes and umbrella are free. The outdoor pool is heated (mid-May thru mid- September) and is open from sunrise to dusk.  We have a pool side fitness area too.

Our “come early, stay late” policy allows for early arrivals to use the pool area prior to check in at 3:00 pm and after check-out at 11 am. (please make arrangements with the innkeeper)

Our beautiful common areas included a cozy lounge, diningroom and sun porch all with a coastal chic decor.  There is also a DVD library of recent movies and a DVD player in each room, as well as popcorn to go with the movies!

In conclusion, getting time away is a precious commodity and an investment. I hope this helps you sort through the different choices when it comes to your chance for rest and relaxation. And I hope you choose the Sand Castle! You won’t be disappointed.
