  • My two teenaged boys and I had a great stay at Gail's cottage. It's a cozy place in a great location. We loved eating breakfast and dinner outside. Gail was very responsive and even offered to cancel and give us a refund before we arrived because there had been skunks in the neighborhood. I'm glad we didn't cancel! I'd like to stay there again.

  • This cozy cottage is ideally located 2 blks from the coastal cliffs. It is very quiet and peaceful. We loved sitting in the backyard in the sun. An extra bonus was the washer and dryer just next door.

Highly recommended.

    This cancellation was due to an unexpected roof leak resulting from heavy
    rains in February. The roof was repaired as quickly as possible.
