This was our second stay at the Manta Ray. We had a two bedroom place that faced the ocean. The view, once you opened the door, was absolutely amazing. We were blessed with a full week of balmy temperatures and cool ocean breezes. This place is perfect for anyone wanting to be directly on the beach. It is small with only two floors. There is no need for elevators. Once the car is parked you don't have to move it again as long as you bring in your own food. The kitchen is equipped with all you'll need if you want to cook your own meals. There are plenty of restaurants within driving distance if that is your preference. The Manta Ray is also within easy walking distance of several ocean front restaurants on the Broadwalk. The Broadwalk is made for walking and bikes can be rented. Gerry, the housekeeper, comes in everyday to clean the rooms, change towels, and do all he can to help people. While we were there, Donna, the owner, was by herself. Although it was a stressful time for her until her husband and son returned to help with running the place, all that was asked of her was taken care of. The place was clean with everything you would expect of small lodging. At night you can sit outside your room and actually watch the waves crashing on the beach. You are right there. With a place like this, you can actually get to know the people who are staying there. It is an ideal place to be for quiet time or getting to make new friends. It is not the Westin, or Marriott, but it is a very nice and comfortable small lodging establishment.
