My friend and I stayed here for two nights as part of a road trip. The stay was wonderful from start to finish. We were in the Osprey Suite which is ocean facing on the second floor. It had a bedroom with a king bed, a queen murthy bed in the sitting room, a large npathroom with jet tub and separate shower, a kitchen/diner and a balcony. In the hallway is a laundry area where you can wash and dry clothes, which was a real bonus. The furnishings and linens were all of a great standard and the blues and taupes echoed the sea and sand beyond the window.
The view from our suite was breathtaking with the estuary and the ocean providing an ever-changing feast for the eyes. You can't see the famous haystack from inside but a short walk along the beach, right out the back yard, and there it is.
There are fire pit areas dotted along the beach and, jealous of those enjoying a fire the first night, we bought somelogs, chilled some wine and sat out there ourselves the second evening, just chilling and chatting in the darkness.
The location is great - far enough from the shops and restaurants for peace but close enough to walk to for breakfast or dinner.
It is not a cheap place to stay but it was a real treat to stay somewhere so beautiful, comfortable and so close to the ocean. We were sad to leave and I'd definitely go back there in a heartbeat.
By the way, if you're there, make sure to visit the haystack just after high tide. We saw the most beautiful, huge and colourful starfish in the rock pools. Don't miss the sunsets either!
