Sha Sha ensured that it was very easy to find and enter their wonderful cottage in Bolinas. We immediately felt welcome and at home with coffee, milk and cereal on hand to make our first morning effortless. Communication with Sha Sha was very clear and easy. "Just A Minit" was very cosy with everything we needed on hand and only 2mins walking to the village shops, restaurant, bar and beaches. We especially enjoyed soaking in the hot tube out back and warming the cottage with the wood stove each evening. I'm sure we will be back to discover more of the Point Reyes Seashore ad Marin County and would definitely try to stay at "Just A Minit" again.
Sha Shas bolinas cottage is just like Beatrice potters Mrs. Tittlemouses house! It was so fun exploring all the different passageways and special rooms. A true handmade house Sha Shas "just a minit" is like living in a creative mind with wonders around every corner. Our two year old loved the tiny staircase and the multiple doorways. Just like exploring an enchanted mouse house from a fairy tale.
We loved Sha Sha's place. Quite a jewel of a place. Lovely town. She was very communicative. Thx Sha Sha
This place is great. Cozy, cute and quiet. Just steps from shops and restaurants in Bolinas, but a world away from everything else. Perfect for a weekend getaway. I left my iPad behind and Sha Sha arranged to have it sent to me even though she was in Taiwan.
We loved staying at ShaSha's cottage...
Amazing location! Best treat was seeing three baby foxes playing around the soaking tub early one morning...
The house has everything you could ask for.. And even though we are tall.. There was no issue as the one low staircase has an alternative entrance outside...from the upstairs bedroom you can watch the stars at night.. Quick walk to the ocean and to town.. Would love to stay there again!!
Everything was accurately described and Shasha was very responsive. The place is charming and we enjoyed every minit!
Sha sha was a really nice and accommodating. She had great communication and answered all of our questions. She also allowed us to stay later on the day of the check which was very nice. The house is really cute but I have to say: it's a little cramped and bit difficult to navigate because its small and the layout is sort of windy/confusing. plus sides: great host, amazing location, lots of towels including beach towels for use, provided half and half and coffee!great outdoor bathtub, great sunny bathroom, cozy bed. down side: small small and a bit crowded with knick knacks. Also remember cell phone reception is spotty but there is a landline.
