Mara was such a sweetheart. Anytime we needed something she was there within minutes. The cottage is cute and was perfect for our getaway. The location is close to everything, 10 minutes to downtown or the beach and walking distance to a few different restaurants. Safeway & CVS are right down the road. The neighborhood felt safe and this cottage is tucked behind the main home. Very private, which was great since there's a hot tub in the back. We were able to BBQ and enjoy the relaxing yard. I would definitely recommend this space and look forward to staying here again in the future!
Mare and her family made us feel very welcome into their home. The private cottage was cozy and safe making for the perfect environment for ourselves and our son. The smell of flowers left for us in the cottage and throughout the gardens was like a dream. This was exactly the experience we needed as we plan for some big life changes. Thank you!3
This was the perfect weekend getaway. The place was fully equipped and the hot tub was clean. The cottage is very private. Mara is very responsive and helpful when needed. It's walking distance to many great restaurants and less than 2 miles to the beach! We definitely would stay there again.
This was lovely, private, clean, inviting, quiet, with every comfort!
Overall the experience was pleasant. The place had most of the amenities one would need
