What Others are Saying

Steve said: “Erinleigh by the Sea was a very cozy stay for an adult couple. The view over the water was nice and south facing, making the sunrise and sunset slightly out of view. If you have a kayak or paddle board, bring one, as the property is right on the water. It’s a short walk to Cafe Aquatica, which has great breakfast food. It is also a very short drive down to Rivers End, again, great food for takeout. We took advantage of visiting the coastline. Goat Rock Beach is great. The Kortum Trail is a great place to run. Would suggest against Shell Beach though and head to other nearby beaches. We also drove up to Salt Rock, which had some really cool Rock formations.”
