Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We loved the place super cute spacious and great location!

    Response from Veda:

    thank you . I remodeled with comfort, spacious and useable layout that is designed to work with variety of groups-families, etc.

  • The cottages were beautiful and definitely more than we could ever ask for! My group of university students got to stay here for a community service spring break and they thoroughly enjoyed their time. The size was perfect for our group of 12 and there was plenty of space to just hang out, cook, and sleep. Being half a block from the beach was AMAZING! Veda was great to work with and kept me updated with everything I needed to know. She even let me know when the repair people were coming to fix some things around the house so that they wouldn't bother us, even though we weren't going to be at the house at the time they came. This is NOT a party house, but it is great for those who just want to have a relaxing place to stay. I would definitely recommend staying here if you get the chance!!!

  • Twin Cottages was terrific for our girls weekend. Close to the beach and Santa Cruz, lots of space and a great kitchen. We had a terrific time and Veda was very clear and easy to communicate with.

  • We had a group of eight adults and were more than comfortable in the house and extra bungalow. The location and appointments we just as advertised, if not nicer. Finally, the property owner was easy to work with. We would certainly stay here again.

  • Great place! And so very close to the beach.

    December 2013
  • Beautiful cottages! Great location near the beach and for hosting families. Be careful about noise as the neighbors are very sensitive to it. This is great if you are looking for a nice quiet place for a family reunion or larger group.

    November 2013
  • We held our student leadership retreat at the twin cottages and it was perfect! everything was better than expected, the property is beautiful, peaceful, and in perfect proximity to the beach. having breakfast and coffee each morning on the deck made for such a relaxing getaway from the craziness of Berkeley. our students had a great time. Veda was really great- very helpful, great with communication, and she gave us ton of information about the local area. hope to come back the next time i need a big space!

    Response from Veda:

  • The two cottages were amazing and just steps to the beach. It was perfect for our one night stay prior to our wedding weekend in Corralitos. Important to note that the neighbors don't appreciate noise so this is more of a family rental than a party rental. Thank you Veda!

    Response from Veda:

    Thank you Meaghen. Glad it was perfect for your trip. Yes it is much more of a family rental or peaceful retreat and we try to let everyone know that quiet hours are strictly enforced out of respect for neighbors.

  • My family and I very much enjoyed our stay in the front cottage. It was beautiful and clean and very close to the beach. Veda was very responsive and helpful. LOVED it.
