Ann and John's little cabin is so cozy, comfortable and just a perfect getaway place. The deck with its view is amazing, and Ann and John are very friendly, hospitable people. Communication was very easy. I recommend their beautiful place whole heartedly!
John and Ann were super accommodating. The place is cute. Great spot. Nice and clean. Safe. Peaceful.
Staying with Ann & John (& Bilbo), was an amazing experience. The room was perfect and romantic, in its design and size. It's separation from the house is nice, as it offers that feeling of your own space without intrusion.
The outdoor shower is cute, and is nice in the day time. If you wait until after dark to shower and you don't like being cold, you'll be better off to wait till morning. My wife gets cold very easily, and the one night shower she took was all of 30 seconds; however, I don't mind the mix of hot water and cold air, so I took a normal shower. My wife opted for a daytime shower after that, and that was fine for her. If privacy is a concern, in my mind it really isn't an issue, as Ann and John have done a great job setting it up for privacy. If the outdoor shower is a complete turnoff, check out their other listing that is inside the house!
The hosts are extremely laid back and very helpful. They'll happily answer your questions about the area, the house, etc. We really enjoyed having John come out every time we came home and ask us about our day, as it felt very engaging and homey.
We used the grill on the deck one night, which was awesome. They have a bin of plates, silverware, and grill tools readily available, which made it nice and stress free. Also, the gas fire pit and patio heater were nice to have in the evenings, when it was a bit chilly.
Ann and John, again, are very accommodating and such wonderful people. We will not hesitate to come back when we're in the area.
I had a wonderful stay at Ann and John's place. It was pure heaven and exactly what I needed - a peaceful, restful place to come back to after a hard day of work. Loved it and will stay again if I'm in the area. Thanks Ann and John!
I absolutely love your cottage and how you meet my needs ("blender thingie") fridge, microwave, adore the outdoor shower and you and John are such great people. This year, I loved being welcomed home by the lanterns perfectly staggered. I'll be back!
"Bay View Private Cottage Retreat" was even better than I imagined! It was well-designed, constructed and maintained as well as comfortable, neat and clean. Ann and John were genuine and welcoming but not intrusive in any way. They offered quality coffees and soaps. The village, cottage, deck and view were so pleasant I spent most of my time there. The fire ring and outdoor shower added so much to the experience.
This was by far the best place we could have stayed. The price was right in our budget and our room was way more than we expected. After a short drive past the Golden Gate Bridge we could relax in our own little bungalow. Beautiful property, comfortable room, great hosts, amazing view, and we felt safe. It was so beautiful and truly relaxing. We could not have stayed with better people! They took great care of us and truly wanted our stay to be comfortable. Absolutely no complaints at all! :)
