i am a performance artist and i live in bolinas
What a beautiful, interesting and cozy story book cottage! There were lots of nice details too- heated toilet seat, motion sensor lights for the bathroom and outside where the wood was stored, an amazing shower and tub. We had a very pleasant stay and Sha Sha was communicative and helpful.
Sha Sha thank you for everything! We appreciate you granting us a late check in and late check out. Your creative and art filled home was amazing and inspiring! It was fun, mysterious and I only wish I was there right now! We used the soaking tub and it was a delight. It was relaxing with the birds in the morning and the endless stars at night. We enjoyed walking to the beach (great surfing had by my husband and son) and to town (stores and restaurant). Bolinas is a magical place and your house fits in perfectly. We hope to be back very soon!
Our family really enjoyed staying at "Just a Minit" cottage. While it is very small, it is unique and charming. You can tell that each piece of furniture, each window, lamp, quilt - each item was hand picked and special.
The location is great. Just up the road are an overlook of the Pacific and beach access. The little hippy village of Bolinas is just a couple of blocks away. The whole area has the scent of eucalyptus and we saw many hummingbirds.
One note - you should know that this cottage is unusual in ways that we liked - but some people might not. To gain access to the upper level, you climb a stair/ladder, duck under a beam and then can emerge standing! The stove is an antique - we did just fine but be prepared. The whole place is quite an experience!
This house was a great little hidden gem!
Had a nice stay steps from the beach. Super fun!
Lovely cottage - kind of like a hobbit house! Sha sha provides coffee, tea, cooking supplies, and all the condiments you could use!
the house is well supplied w/wood and there is a space heater to keep it warm as well.
Very cozy, warm and charmingly eccentric cottage in Bolinas. Short walk to the beach, and even shorter walk to the downtown area. Plenty of heaters and blankets to stay warm, and we absolutely loved the wood burning stove. Kitchen is well stocked with the basics, and everything in the cottage is well laid out with clear directions. Look forward to coming back!
Response from Sha Sha:
Thanks for your specific input
The cottage is perfect! One of the most romantic and secluted places you could possibly find in such a great and central location!
I would definitely recommend it and Shasha was super helpful and easy to communicate with.
Unfortunately we missed the flight to SF and lost one night and had to leave a night earlier because of a personal emergency...ended up staying just 2 of the 4 nights paid but Shasha kindly invited us to come back after the weekend. We didn't but were very grateful she offered!
Response from Sha Sha:
So you really did leave in the middle of the night,the wood stove was still warm the next morning. Too bad you could not relax into the place and truley enjoy it. We were sad about that.
I really love staying here. It is one of my favorite places. Sha Sha is great.
Echoing what all reviewers have said below me: this place is warm, quirky, and beautiful. It's location is perfect and my friends and I had a wonderful time. Sha Sha made everything super easy to figure out and it was a breeze coming and going from the house. My only regret in writing this is that it may be booked the next time I want to go back!
Wonderful little "hobbit" style home full of personality and treasures.
Beautiful little rustic furnishings, outside hot tub, a minute from the surf breaks and downtown. Great location. Great friendly host!
Thanks for the tip! Made it out to RCA - awesome little adventure.
Sha Sha was a very interesting person with a great group of friends. She was here in Buffalo for an Asian Lacquer Conference. Her friend Nhat, an artist in the conference, stayed in the Kids' Room and was very quiet and polite. We loved hosting her and recommend her!
