I don't even think any picture could do justice to this gorgeous little cottage in the forest. From the moment you pull into the driveway it has a special sort of air surrounding it. You drive the twisting gravel road eager with anticipation at what you will find around the next turn and finally the house emerges in a little clearing at the top. And each moment gets better as you get out of the car and take in a breath of the freshest air, look out onto the beautiful pacific, and laugh with joy as you realize this will be your little cottage... at least for the next few days.
We had the most amazing time staying here. The house was amazing! The view was amazing! We really didn't want to leave at the end of our trip.
Donia was wonderful to work with when I decided to vacation at San Souci. My decision was based on her beautiful photographs, description of the cottage and the reviews from previous visitors, and also our conversation via email through Airbnb. I stayed at San Souci for 2 weeks, and thoroughly enjoyed my experience there and my visits to Florence, Old Town, the restaurants, the Sea Lion Caves, and all the hiking trails available in the area. James, the caretaker, was great at answering any questions I had, and available 24/7. It was a delight to see the small herd of Elk grazing in the meadows, and the views of the Pacific Ocean, in my opinion, are unbeatable. I haven't had a vacation in over 10 years and this one made up for all those others I didn't take. I'd go back again in a heartbeat. Thank you for sharing this Magical place ~
Sans Souci was the most perfect place to get much needed relaxation. You are greeted by beautiful landscapes as you pull up and once you walk in you are immediately awe struck by the places beauty and comfort! Once you open the door to walk on the deck, you are hit in the face with a cool breeze of the ocean, fresh air, picturesque view of the ocean and the most amazing feeling of privacy and quietness. There is no spot at Sans Souci that isn't comfortable, relaxing and all around good for the soul. Most importantly, if you luck out you get to meet Butterscotch! The second I walked into Sans Souci, both my wife and I, never wanted to leave! Cannot wait to hopefully return in the near future. If you have the chance to stay here, you will not regret it. Recommendation, get out and walk around the grounds. Great places for eats, Waterfront Depot and Mo's. thanks again for giving us a chance to stay here. Missed it the second I left.
What a find! Sans souci was incredible. We have been on a road trip from Vancouver BC and stayed in many great inns and bnb's this felt the most special. The property is located in 40 acres of unspoilt woodland and is superbly decorated, we stayed for four nights and didn't leave for two days enjoying the sea views, cooking and reading. A treasure.
What a fabulous location and retreat. We heard elk and saw their signs just out the back, too.
Our little family loved this little cottage perched above the ocean. We had everything we needed. Thanks to James for the great tips on which beach to explore. We had the entire beach to ourselves!
We loved our stay in this great house. The pictures do not do this property justice. Coming from Brooklyn this was a real treat and haven from NYC. Perched high with amazing pacific views, fields, beautiful gardens completely private and yet so close to the charming town of Florence and so much beautiful nature. The house was very well done and has all the conveniences you need.
Highly recommend this gem. Was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.
This place is incredible – even more spectacular than the pictures. The house and the grounds are immaculate. Sans Souci is a special place in the world. Thank you so much, Donia
When I found Sans Souci on Airbnb, I could tell from the photos that it was an amazing place and easily convinced my husband that we should spend our anniversary there. For the whole month leading up to our stay, whenever I was slogging through work or feeling stressed, I would just look through the photos on the listing and immediately feel better, knowing that soon I'd be soaking in that bathtub and looking at those incredible views.
In real life, it was even better than I anticipated! It is such a beautiful cottage perched on the hill, with stunning views of the ocean, surrounded by wind-blown grass and wild foxgloves. It is quiet and secluded, but just close enough to the conveniences of Florence and the sights of the Oregon coast. (Heceta Head Lighthouse to the north and the carnivorous Darlingtonia plants at Darlingtonia Wayside to the south were our favorite quick excursions.) Mostly though, it was just the perfect place to relax, read, paint, and restore balance. A true retreat, and one we hope to return to soon!
Having Donia as a guest was sweet... First of all she is so quiet you have no idea that she is around. Very trust worthy, honest, independent,social and she loves to laugh. I'm looking forward to spending more time with her in the future.
Wow. Donia is the absolute perfect guest! She is so sweet, intelligent, enjoys life and every moment! She is quiet-we didn't even know she was here-, but we also had nice (email hidden)d very neat and tidy. Just an all around pleasant person...A total pleasure to have Donia stay at, "French Philly!"
