We had a wonderful four days at 'Just a Minit'. The house was even more charming and magical than the pictures made it look. The fencing around the property made it feel tucked away in a magical secret garden despite the close proximity to the road (which is also a very sleepy infrequently traveled road, and cars drive very slowly, so it's hardly noticeable. The kitchen, although small, was well appointed with coffee maker, blender, microwave and decent quality knives and cookware. It's never a necessity for me, but I appreciate Sha Sha's gesture of stocking basics like coffee, cream and sugar. An unexpected modern touch is the internet connected TV and stereo with speakers throughout the house.
Sha Sha was always prompt to respond to my several questions about the property and even called the house our second day to make sure everything was going ok and answer any questions. That is a first for me with local house renting. We really look forward to going back soon!
Truly unique spot! This little storybook house has a welcoming warm feel and lots of love put into each corner. It has all the charm of a rustic get-a-away, but with lots of thoughtful amenities. The open rail of inner staircase made me a little nervous for my fearless toddler, but he figured it out in no time. There are two outdoor options to the second floor as well. The upstairs area was perfect for all of us with an single foldout futon for my 2 yr old in an adjoining room, queen for us, and room for a bassinet. Lots great morning light! My son loved exploring the house and it was nice to let him explore the property too (all fenced in). The lot itself feels very private and secluded. Sha Sha was very responsive and Albert checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. We were all enchanted and plan to come back if they'll have us!
Amazing stay in Bolinas at this lovely property. Sha Sha was very helpful and accommodating. Would definitely return. Thank you!
We had a wonderful stay at just a minit. The cottage was a dream and it was in the perfect location, a short walk to the beach and to town. Sha Sha was warm and welcoming. We absolutely loved staying here.
Sha Sha's hobbit house is definitely one of the most interesting places I've ever stayed at! She left a lot of notes around the house for how to utilize different amenities - we really loved building the fire in the wood stove once we figured everything out. Once we got in the house it was relatively easy to get settled in and start our fun filled weekend. Thanks again for an amazing stay!
The house was very unique and cozy, and the location was perfect- just a few minute walk from the beach and from town. I had a super time at Sha Sha's cottage. Very clean and well kept.
