My son, teenage grandsons and I stayed there at the large 2 bedroom. We all loved it and this is now our place to stay. I usually stay at the Sandpiper, Mustang Towers etc. This place beats them all in my books. It is so centrally located and was very clean plus the decor was excellent. The people working there...

Clean, cozy, cute! Candy & Ray treat you like family. We took our two dogs on their first vacation and had water hoses and towels to clean them after a day at the beach. Close and convenient to beach and town, but yet still private enough to have a quiet BBQ on the patio in the evening! Great summer vacation!...

There are not a lot of places to stay in Port A that are this clean, cute and friendly...at least not in this price range. We have stayed at MANY different places over the years and the Laughing Horse Lodge is now my favorite. It is SO pet friendly. They give you a basket upon arrival with towels for your...

By "excellent accommodations," I mean the place was great, just what we needed: dogs welcome, not just "accepted," close to the beach, rooms large enough for a family, a manager who sincerely sought to meet our every need and request! Couldn't have asked for more. Thank you, Candy.

This place was recommended by friends, and i was not disappointed. It offered a clean and fun place to crash in between beach/dinner/dancing outings. Bed was comfy, bathroom was clean, we had a mini kitchen with dishes provided and ice in the fridge... Only complaint is that it seems a little overpriced based on the tiny size and lack of...

Cute little place recommended to us by our neighbors in Austin, TX. We stayed in a one bedroom cottage with a kitchenette. The place was clean and comfortable, and oh-so-close to the beach. Dog-friendly, too. Also conveniently located to all the restaurants and the bay-area entertainment district. Owner/managers were super friendly and accomadating to us; even though we made our...

We loved our little cabin and it was super clean...as the smell of Pine Sol nearly knocked us over as we entered the door. The decor was cute but a little tired. And the mattress was completely worn out! It sagged so deep in the middle that we both ended up with back aches. I really hope they will do...

It was a shame this happened. We want everyone to have an enjoyable experience and we devote extra effort to make it happen. After this guest left, the housekeepers went to clean and found the bed frame totally broken. We replaced the frame and the bed is now fine. I only wish our guest would have said something so we...

These are great cozy, comfortable and colorful beach cabins. Very pet friendly place, very clean and only a short walk to the beach. Mid week is less crowded on the beaches and around town. We'll be back
