Absolutely loved our visit. Didn't feel like a corporate, cold room. But rather, super cozy and felt looked after. Beautiful ocean views and right on the beach! We had a Queen sized studio and the kitchenette had all the appliances and dishes we needed if we wanted to prepare our own food and super close to the downtown shops and...

We were four people and we stayed in the Beach House which offered the best location we could have imagined and looked right down on the beach and just down from Haystack. Its also within walking distance to all shops and restaurants. I didn't realize when booked that this is a 3 bed unit and we had so much space...

This is our fifth visit to this cozy beachside room. A beamed ceiling, river rock gas fireplace and handsome kitchenette alcove and balcony make this a beautiful,restful home away from home. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Walk the beach, watch the sunset, relax in the hot tub, this room feels and looks like a beachside bungalow not a...

Loved the room, amenities, staff, view, fireplace, location, and walking distance to everything, except the noise that whistled down the fireplace flue and the clanging of the flue hoods rotating! The first night we were there the wind came up and being on the top floor, we had,a 'nest--6 to 8 flues, right next to our room. Couldn't sleep. The...

Came down this past weekend from Seattle after seeing the coastal weather report -- picked this place after looking at a few booking sites, price is reasonable in relation to what the other spots go for in the area, but a bit high when considered on it's own. Proximity to the beach is A+, you literally can't stay any closer....

Located right by shops and the beach, it was the best of both worlds. The townhouse was super clean and adorable and they got us in way before check in. We had coffee at the most perfect coffee house located right across the street every morning before hitting the beach. I could not have asked for anything better and we...

This was our first time to stay at The Waves and I am so glad we chose this perfect place! Our 2nd floor king room was ocean front, had beautiful picture windows, a private deck, and a very nice kitchen. The Waves is steps to the beach and town is just around the corner, the best of both! Once we...

I got a room with beachfront access. It had a panoramic view of the ocean. The room was clean and spacious. I really liked the condo style layout. The bed was comfortable. The balcony was very small but I didn't have any reasons to use it, so it didn't really bother me. I did notice that it had a weird/sour...

The office staff was extremely hospitable. The room was well furnished and clean. When I needed information, the desk personal was pleasant and helpful. Please be sure you can make the weather always be sunny and warm.
