We stayed at the Sandpiper for three nights in one of the cabins behind the main house. We found the room to be pleasant but very crampted - there wasn't more than 30 square feet of open floor space. The bed was very comfortable. An unshaded skylight got us up much earlier than we would have liked and the glare exposed lots of cobwebs. The shower stall needs new grout - it was black in spots.
During the first night, a garden gate starting banging in the wind at 2.14 AM and kept us awake. We noted that the gate was secured with a small rock later that morning and then a large stone was required to finish the job around noon.
The breakfast was excellent and the morning host very accomodating.
We were lured by a very good rate for Carmel, but you get what you pay for. Next time, we will pay more and stay somewhere else.
