Cosmo was very hospitable and generous with his time, and an all-around excellent host -- friendly, helpful, and available to lend a hand if you need help with something, but also happy to give you space and let you enjoy solitude. I stayed in the cabin for a little over a month, and highly, highly recommend it to anybody interested in spending some time in the woods. The pictures and description are spot-on, and the area is absolutely gorgeous.
Awesome deal and an awesome spot. Very cozy little house that's close to town. Cosmo was an awesome host and left some local beers and chocolate bars for us, which was a great touch. There isn't really any way into Mendocino town other than to drive (only 5 min away), which was a little bit of a bummer, but the house/Cosmo were 5 star worthy!
Cosmo met us at the cabin and showed us around in person. He was friendly and made terrific suggestions for our visit to the area. He had left us a care package of goodies including fresh bread and chocolate! The cabin is spacious and so so quiet... A wonderful escape from city life, near the beach and in the trees. The kitchen had all we needed for simple meal preparation, and the bed was comfy. Happy times all around!
Cosmo gave us such a warm welcome to the weekend. We got stuck in traffic on the way up so arrived later than planned and he waited nearby to make sure he could greet us in person and show us how everything worked. He set up a fire for us and left us tasty treats to enjoy. The cabin was cute and cozy and the outdoor decorations were whimsical. :) It was nice to be in the middle of woods but just a quick drive away from downtown Mendocino.
Cosmo was a great host during our week long stay. Easy going, great chat, always ready to help us enjoy our time there and made us feel at home.
Place as advertised, fairly new and quiet. Even though it is very close to the road, there is little traffic. A 5 minute ride to downtown Mendocino or the beach makes Cosmo's place very convenient.
He left a delicious smoked fish, chocolate and wine for us. Much appreciated. We will definitely go back. Thank you Cosmo!
Cosmo was a very attentive host! He responded to questions immediately and made everything easy. The place is a little musty, but has it's charm and it's a wonderful location.
We had a fantastic stay! The cottage was exactly as pictured and was perfect for spending a few days exploring picturesque Mendocino and the surrounding area. Cosmo was extremely friendly and a perfect host, even offering to help us build a fire on our first night.

About the Host, Cosmo
I've been everywhere, man...Not really, but working on it. I'm really a Mendocino younger old timer who enjoys all the finer things of the region - the Ocean, Nature and exotic local culture. I enjoy travelers, excitement, peace and quiet.
