Once in a while horses walk down the street toward a mountain trail. There are no sidewalks or street lamps. Yucca bloom on the hillside and you can hear the ocean waves at night.
We have recently insulated and dry-walled the ceiling to provide extra warmth for the coming fall and winter; the photos need updating as they are showing the old rafters. The big beautiful crossbeams still give it a wood feeling but it is a little less rustic, and has a little more finished feel. We added a bathroom door! The feel is casual, country-ish and relaxed with blooming jasmine, loquat and mulberry trees Once in a while coyotes howl up on the hillside. With binoculars, you can even sometimes see a whale's spout! For a great magazine article on the cottage on this property see Laura Hobbs' article:
The pool is sometimes shared with two other vacation rentals and several of us living in the main house. but all units have their own space and there is a private feel on the whole.
Interaction with Guests
The wide-open ocean view on this gentle, gardened hillside and quiet neighborhood is so peaceful and welcoming!
Car is best!
There is a stairway and a path near the pool lit at night. We love the quiet and laid-back atmosphere and are comfortable with surfboards and kayaks, etc.
