My wife and I are 60-something, and we wanted a place that was just as the title of the review described, plus quiet. We found it all, and in a beautiful, seemingly secluded setting, even though the inn is just off a rather busy road (Rt. 1). You'd never know it though, because you can't hear or see any traffic.
The room was clean as a pin. Believe me, we are both sticklers about cleanliness. The maid did a fantastic job every day, and we made sure to tip her generously.
The king-size bed was very comfortable. We had five good nights of sleep. The sheets were crisp and white, and the pillows were soft and full.
The place is simply charming. It caters to adults without children, too. The view from the private balcony is stunning. Several mornings we woke at sunrise to take some of the most beautiful pix of the sun rising out of the sea. The landscaping is immaculate, and quite pretty. Paths down to the little cove on which the inn was located made for a nice, albeit steep walk. No problem. We took it slow and easy, and got some exercise in the process.
The infinity pool is wonderful. It's heated and clean and gets ample sun exposure. The view to the cove and the sea and islands beyond is breathtaking.
If I could change one thing about the inn, I would put two sinks in the bathroom. It just makes it easier for two adults to get ready for the day. Otherwise, the inn is terrific, and the price is really reasonable for such a nice place.
