My family recently stayed at the cottage. The grounds were so peaceful. It provided a nice respite from the crowds an was a great place to relax and unwind after a busy day of sightseeing. We especially liked having the animals onsite. Tamara was a gracious host and made sure we…

It was a pleasure Tiffany! After your visit, and hearing your secret desire to see sharks, I wanted to let you know that the very next family that stayed with us went on a whale watching expedition and saw a BUNCH of them!! I think you all need to come back again and give it a second try! We always appreciate having friendly Texan's around our little farm!

Pick a different place, unless you want to pay too much, not fit everyone in the house, does not sleep 6, unless it’s 6 small children. I was not happy with the sleeping arrangements. And the owner likes to park in your only parking spots.

Response from Tamara:
We have three private parking spots, plus abundant street parking (we only have two cars, and one of them is parked elsewhere a majority of the time). Whitney booked for ONE person, but SIX arrived. Had she been honest when booking, I would have had the opportunity to suggest that our place may not have been a good fit for their particular group. We have however, accommodated six adults many times before with no issues. Regarding the price, do your research and draw your own conclusions. We have held the same price for ten years and have actually discounted it for Airbnb'rs to absorb some of the fees.

Tamara guest house was a unique place to stay, in a small mountain community close to Big Basin and Big Sir which was on our bucket list. We got exactly what we wanted and enjoyed their animals and intimate surroundings. NO REGRETS and a BIG THUMBS UP !

Had a great two night stay here. Very pretty setting, and we loved the animals. Worked very well as a base for getting up to Big Basin for hiking as well as going down to Santa Cruz.

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage! Tamara and Greg were very friendly and warm hosts. They made sure we felt comfortable and had fun during our stay. Greg showed us around and introduced to the rest of the family - piglet, donkeys, goats, huge parrot Annabella and hens. Our alm…

We're SO glad you enjoyed your stay! It was a pleasure to host your family. We really enjoyed watching your daughter's reaction to the farm animals! And a big "thank you" for the tip about the heater noise. Since we don't sleep in the cottage, we never would have known unless somebody shared! Since it's a radiant, metal wall heater, I'm not sure if the rattle noise is normal due to expansion/ contraction of the metal when it cools or not. We'll have somebody out to take a peek. Thanks for the valuable feedback!
