Fantastic space, every corner is artistically detailed and decorated! Location is also beyond compare. Kat is a wonderful and fact-filled host. And if you miss your cats while traveling like I do, hers make you feel right at home!

Kathleen's petit retreat was wonderful. The space was clean and had everything we needed. We loved having coffee in the little outdoor oasis and especially loved showering under the stars. Thanks you for being a great host- we look forward to coming back again sometime.
