Relaxing, idyllic, quiet, seashore sounds and smells, stars. A wonderful place to be! We would visit again in a heartbeat .
This is a magical place. We set out here for a get away after receiving challenging news, and it was the perfect welcoming space to heal and refresh. Set in a stunning garden of flowers and fruit trees, this secluded cabin-house has decks to lounge, eat, and birdwatch on. Inside there is room for two to cook, eat, read, sleep..... The bed was lovely, with a fluffy duvet for the cool nights, we woke up and watched the hummingbirds feed on the red flower bush through through the window next to the bed. Tenaya is a wonderful host, she gives you all the info you need to enjoy this special spot next to the dunes and beach. She left us cofees, teas, delicious jam and muffins.
We found it to be the perfect airbnb experience. We are all lucky that she and her husband (and dog + cat) generously share their magical acre with us.
Wonderful place and Tenaya has thought of every detail to make your stay comfortable. The kitchen is super well equipped and the entire cottage is filled with light. We loved and used both porches. The landscaping is beautiful and the short walk to the dunes and beach is fabulous. Tenaya is friendly but not intrusive. She shared some great zuchinni and garlic from her garden.
We enjoyed our stay at the lovely Rose Cottage. The flowers and gardens were beautiful and the walk out to the dunes was convenient and beautiful! the sunset from the hammock with our son will be a wonderful memory! Tenaya is a great hostess who provided us with fresh strawberries from her garden and delicious homemade muffins and jam. Overall a great place to stay if you love nature!
The Rose Cottage was better than appears in the pictures, delightfully old and charming, yet very clean and comfortable. The bed was firm, yet soft, the linens fresh and crisp. Tenaya and Ed have provided every little comfort one could think of in this well stocked cabin. We especially loved the home made 10 Mile Plum jam. This quiet and serene slice of heaven sits in a secluded garden. The Dune Gardens are just beautiful, like living in a corner of the Mendocino Botanical Gardens, with fruit trees, swaths of blooming plants and an incredible array of colors and textures, and garden art. The dune walk to the beach was a great hike, and we loved our whole experience. We hope to make a return visit!
We had such an amazing time at Tenaya's Cottage! She gave us a wonderful, informative tour of her place upon arrival. There were fresh organic berries, jam, and coffee in the fridge--a very nice touch. The cottage was clean, cozy, and perfect for our weekend getaway. A short walk to the dunes, and plenty of beautiful places to walk and bike around. The ambiance was perfect! I highly recommend a stay at Tenaya's Rose Cottage. It's peaceful, beautiful, and romantic.
Lovely and relaxing. Jam and snacks were a nice touch. Make sure you make it to the hammock on the dune.
