I feel privileged to have found this lovely rooming house. As stated by other travelers, life here is totally unplugged, but the place is spotless and lovingly tended by Haede and her husband. Very inexpensive, close to it all. Definitely felt like I'd stepped back in time. But when you want to just spend time at the beach, what else do you need? The wrap around porch accomodates many people, sitting, rocking, watching the world go by after sitting on the beach. Enjoying the ocean breezes. Coffee and tea in the am get you going, and there are tons of places to go for breakfast, etc. Bring everything you need, there's a nice garage to store bikes and chairs out of the elements, and there's nothing more refreshing than an outside shower on a hot day. On a rainy day you're close to shops and can play games on the porch as well. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: I agree with another guest----bottom floor is a bit noisy. Run the a/c and you'll be fine.

Staying at Holly Haven is like staying at your relative's house. Haide and Bill are great hosts and very warm and welcoming. We immediately felt at home. Keep in mind that this is a budget friendly Inn with shared baths on each floor and two outside showers. Make sure you bring a robe or large towel for trips down to the shower. You are only one block from the beach and they have off street parking which is very convenient. There is an amusement park at the end of the block but with the windows closed and the A/C on it was not a problem for us.

You will not find a TV or internet in your room. Haide will have hot coffee and tea in the morning and there are many places within walking distance for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The shared bathrooms are a little small but do the job and we never had to wait. If you want modern amenities this place is not for you, but if you are looking for clean comfortable old-fashioned accommodations with friendly owner's, you will love this place!

Room Tip: We like the third floor

This is a beautiful Victorian house located 30 seconds walk to the beach. The house is so charming, with a wrap-around deck and rocking chairs where you can enjoy complimentary coffee and fruits from the garden each morning, or your own drinks and snacks in the evening. We have stayed several times over the past two years and love every stay in Haide's home. As other reviews have mentioned, there is a shared toilet on each floor of the house, and two outdoor shower cabins in the garden. Haide was very clear about this on the phone before we made our first booking. Yes the towels are a little small and old, but everything is completely spotless, plus there is a fridge in each room which is very useful. I find the rooms totally cute - they are in keeping with the Victorian era of the house - but you might want to stay on the second or third floor, because the first can be noisier. This is not a 5 star resort - and for $100 a night don't expect one - but it is a totally charming escape from the daily grind, in an excellent location.

Where else can a couple stay at the best beach town in America, in the beach block, a hundred yards from the boardwalk, for around $100/night in a place that is immaculately, spotlessly clean and generally well-kept? With off-street parking right at your door? With really REAL old-fashioned charm and hospitality and a front porch where you can wind down and watch the world go by? Come on people, take a step back in time to when the world was unplugged and people actually had time to enjoy life and talk to each other. Put away your phone and live for once. If you have time and the opportunity, spend some time talking with Haide and, if he's feeling up to it, Bill Earl, and you will hear some wonderful stories. We own a beach house nearby and when it's rented but we want to spend a weekend at the beach, this is where we stay, so that should tell you something.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side won't hear the screams from the rides at Funland.

Before WiFi and cable TV...there was a time when only sailors sported a tattoo....and people who rocked were sitting on the front porch in chairs. If you want to revive that era in a more casual setting than in a stuffy Victorian Hotel then this may be the place for you. Great location in the heart of town with parking. The beach and board walk are less than half a block away with great shopping and restaurants. Meticulously clean and neat. Verrrry budget friendly. The bathrooms are shared between several rooms on each hallway and all showers are outside. The bathrooms and showers have always been clean. The showers are ceramic tiled 'indoor type' showers. They keep the sand and humidity outside. A hose is available to wash off feet and beach chairs. A clothesline is available for wet towels and suits. Refrigerator and A.C. in all rooms. The front porch has rocking chairs,tables and games.There is no TV or wifi. The rooms are furnished with servicable older furniture. I have been coming here off and on for years and hope to continue to enjoy this lovely respite.
