"My annual vist to Brentwood on the Beach is something I look forward to all year. Arriving there is just like like going home after being gone for a long time. Joan and Peter treat you just like family. I've been going for about 6 years now and I'm just as excited to go this year as I was the first. The staff is wonderful and the food is awesome!"

"A relaxing atmosphere, comfortable rooms and delicious food. What more could you ask for? Well next year we will be adding a night to our stay because we love it at Brentwood on the Beach and the quiet time we get to knit, read, and walk on the beach. And to add to our enjoyment are the evenings with the authors learning about writing books and meeting the people who do. We look forward to our knitting weekend retreat. We only wish it were longer."
