Our family of five stayed for two lovely nights at Carole's Out By The Sea! This b&b is clean and offers a delicious breakfast, wi-fi plus satellite tv. It's a short walk to Crystal Beach, which has soft, fine sand and plenty of privacy. Carole is charming and she was SO great with our kids (6,4 and 2.) She has...

We were looking for a place to stay for a short weekend and found Out by the Sea. We had a wonderful stay and Carole is a wonderful hostess. The quietness and relaxation was so refreshing at the b and b.

Im sitting one the back porch(which is on stilts) listening to bob marley and looking at the beach. I just got finished grilling fresh shrimp and chicken with our across-the-hallway friends that we made today. This IS NOT the place to come if you expect a rundown, non-friendly, non- family atmosphere. This is professional hospitality at its best. Carole Hamadey...

It was my year to have Spring Break with my son, so I didn't want to travel too far. I found Out By The Sea and decided to book Wednesday through Sunday.

Spent the weekend here and it was wonderful. Room was private and beautiful, beach view. Carol was fabulous, cooked dinner and breakfast for everyone. She couldn't do enough to make our stay great. We met a few friends and spent the night dancing. I can't say enough about how wonderful this place is, will certainly return.

We went two families for spring break. Both families have young children and we were looking for a good place for both kids and grown-ups. We found it! The owner is very friendly and it was situated right by the ocean. The rooms was ok. Maybe a little small if you have to squeeze in a extra queen sized bed...

I am a single Mom, this B & B was an excellent choice for my family. We had a great time even though Hurricane Alex hit the Gulf at the same time we were there. This B & B is a safe, relaxing, clean place to stay for any family. Carol and her family treated us like family! I highly...
