This was our first stop of our mid-winter escape from the blahs of snowy Canada, and it was near perfect. I cannot say enough good things about the friendly and accommodating staff who go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. Ocean House has eight suites so it's never really too busy. The pool and beach are amazing,...

We just returned from two nights at Ocean House. After being home with the kids on break for 10 days, we needed a little break! Ocean House was perfect. The view of the sunrise on our first morning was breathtaking. Sitting in the hammock on the point took all the tension and clamor of the holidays away so we could...

It would be nice if the neighboring property was more considerate. Unfortunately the property was occupied during your stay at Ocean House, which is not always the case, especially during the week. Our complimentary snacks are just that, snacks. They are not intended to be a substitute for a meal. However, we do cater in food from a couple local...

My husband and I returned for our next 7th trip to our favorite place anywhere, Ocean House, in October. What can I say except we can't stay away for long. From the outstanding service, comfortable beyond belief beds, to the unbelievably lush grounds, and stellar views, there's no place we'd rather be. No need to sightsee, or go anywhere. Kick...

Very, very beautiful location. Paradise. Enjoyed watching the sun set on their small beach. Many areas to sit and play board games, read, eat, enjoy a drink, and just relax. Lovely, warm small pool. Nice jacuzzi. Staff is very attentive and friendly. Breakfast was mediocre (Yoplait yogurt, pastry, orange juice and fruit bowl.) Aside from fruit bowl, way too sweet....

Again, let me apologize for the two incidents that caused your stay to be less than a perfect get-a-way. The vendor we hired to raise the step stones along the back of the building had indicated to me that the work should not be a problem for the guests, even the guests in the downstairs rooms. I decided to block...

Ocean House exceeded all our expectations. The grounds were gorgeous, and the staff were accommodating without being obtrusive. We stayed in the Key Lime room, and it was all we needed....full refrigerator, nice sized shower, and soft bed. Days were spent on the beach and kayaking...you rarely saw other guests. Breakfast was delicious and filling...never waited more than 15 minutes....
