We stayed in this private cottage over Valentine's Day weekend. My husband and I were looking for a quiet place to celebrate away from the business of the city but close enough to enjoy Santa Cruz restaurants. This cottage was the perfect location. We really enjoyed sitting on the deck enjoying the birds and the trees. The cottage itself was a nice size for two people and our large dog. We loved that we were able to bring our dog along. The snacks left by our hosts were the perfect touch. Comfortable bed, but the futon in the living room was a little hard but we didn't spend too much time sitting indoors. We like that there was no TV and we're able to spend time disconnected (although we also appreciated the wi-fi). We are the type of Air B N B travelers who like our privacy and not much interaction with hosts, and Michelle and Matt respected this. We would most definitely stay here again.
What a wonderful cottage! The location was so peaceful, yet easy to access, and close to many beautiful places to explore. Michele made us feel very welcome.
Sweet cottage in a lovely, quiet setting! We had no trouble getting there (excellent location!), and had good communication with our hosts. The bed was comfy (I am a big guy, and that's not always the case).
Adorable and quiet little cottage overlooking the woods. We felt very welcomed and safe, and Michele came by with a warm greeting. She has been at this for many years and has the system down :-) We would definitely go back for a longer stay!
Michele was communicative and responsive during the booking and planning process and met us to welcome us when we arrived. she made it known that she was available if we needed anything but did not intrude on our privacy -- the perfect hostess.
The cottage was cozy, quiet, private, and comfortable. it suited our needs perfectly. very good value -- we would recommend it and would stay there again.
This place was perfect for us. We attended a wedding nearby and came back to the cottage to sit under the stars and to pass out with cool breezes blowing in from the windows. The cottage sits behind a house so it feels nice and secure. It had lots of skylights (making it nice and sunny!) and it was just all around charming from the friendly hosts to the complimentary CDs on the coffee table.
We had an amazing time. The Whizin's made us feel welcome and my twin two year old boys loved the place so much that they cried when we left the "little house."
