Visited Out by the Sea B&B last weekend with my sweetheart and one each of our teenaged kids. We had the most amazing time! Carole really treated us like we were family. It's obvious why she gets so many return guests. I can't wait to get back. The house is on large piers, with extensive decking - all of which...

My family and I stayed here for the weekend and loved every minute of it. The rooms are great and the service is greater. Carol made us feel right at home and gave us every accommodation including her cooking and friendliness. The patio is beautiful and relaxing with the hammocks and the garden. It is very close to the beach,...

7/23/12 I have stayed twice at this B&B, once alone, now with my Mother and sister. First time I stayed in one of the Honeymoon rooms which sits right on the deck so you can open your door for the constant joy of the beach breezes. Carole was such a wonderful hostess and I enjoyed my time so much I...

The website gives you the impression that this is a B&B with lots of rooms that are very separate from the owner's living space. This is not true. We stayed in the Regatta room and it was basically just a bedroom in someone's house. That's fine if that was what we paid for, or what was billed on the website,...

Management response:

Out By The Sea Bed & Breakfast has two rooms inside the main home and three rooms in a separate location. The Regatta is located in the main home. Referencing the above review it is clear that some guests adore staying in a Bed & Breakfast and there are others that prefer a home rental. We made every effort possible...

Traveling to Crystal Beach for the first time, I had no idea what to expect. I am so incredibly impressed with the first-class, reasonably-priced amenities offered at Out by the Sea B & B and its owner, Carole Hamadey. The décor and details of all the rooms, which fortunately I saw during my weeklong stay, are impeccably designed, ever so...

Such beautiful rooms, and a breathtaking view of the gulf right from the balcony. Walking distance to the beach. The rooms are very clean and breakfast is always hot and delicious!

My daughter and I stayed for 2 nights and was treated as old friends! Very clean, sit out on the balcony and watch the sea roll in-or walk the 2 minutes it will take you-or drive-about 10 seconds! Best place to stay on Crystal Beach-DO NOT STAY AT THE HOTELS! There are beach toys you can take to the beach,...

We stayed at Carol's B&B for 2 nights. We have never stayed at a B&B but Carol has set our standards VERY high. She is a great hostess. We stayed in the Honey 2 and absoultely enjoyed every minute of our stay. We can't wait to go back!
