Our stay at Clara's Cottage was nothing short of magical. Tenaya was such a warm and gracious host, and we very much appreciated all of her insider tips for the area. The gardens surrounding the cabin were so serene, and we couldn't get enough of the outdoor bath open to the sky. Inside the cabin was perfectly cozy, and the homemade muffins Tenaya left us in the fridge were to die for! Our stay was all to brief, and we're already longing to return...
From the moment we met Ed, greeting us with his warm smile, and Tenaya, with her twinkle in her eye, we knew we were in store for a treat. This was our first adventure as new retirees. What a gift you gave us. The cottage is cozy; filled with light, and appointed perfectly. Our favorites included the magical garden, filled with blossoms, the birds, and the lovely outdoor bathtub. Additional highlights were walking over the dunes to the beach, humming birds welcoming us, and the gentle peace surrounding and enveloping us. Thank you for the ultimate experience in the joy around us.
The perfect unplugged weekend! We were welcomed warmly and guided through the gate of Tenaya's lovely garden at dusk. The cottage's cozy decor set a comfortable mood, with the woodstove ready to be lit. She guided us though the amenities, provided insider tips for the dunes and left us with delicious fresh fruit, seed-muffins and homemade jam. In the morning the cottage was full of light with Blue jays and quail in the yard. Her little snacks made for a tasty breakfast with a cup of coffee. The neighborhood was very quiet, with a few small houses and fences leading out to a private trail onto the surreal network of dunes by the ocean.
After climbing the dunes and walking along the beach we were a bit sandy and excited to make use of the garden shower/bath. The water is warm and steamy the moment you turn in on and is very soothing in the soft breeze. The lush garden and fence provide privacy as sunlight peeks through the trees and mingles with the steam of a soothing shower.
As this was our first trip using airbnb, we had no idea what to expect. Tenaya's listing was better than described and she is a thoughtful, thorough and generous host. When we arrived Tenaya gave us a complete tour of the cottage, explained how everything worked, had the fridge stocked with delicious homemade muffins and ten mile plum jam as well as fresh strawberries. She also had a fire all set to light in the wood burning stove! The cottage is so cozily furnished and the wood deck surrounded by beautiful gardens so inviting that you almost don't want to leave but Tenaya even helps you to be adventurous and explore by explaining, in detail and very accurately, how to navigate to the dunes and the sand dollar beach as well as to the wonderful hammock that she has set up on the highest dune ready for contemplation and meditation in this wonderful and peaceful haven. Two nights was not enough and we hope to return to enjoy Tenaya's hospitality again in the near future.
Tenaya was an EXCELLENT host! The cottage was exactly as described and everything was so nice and clean! She really goes the extra mile by putting homade preserves and muffins in the fridge for guests. Tenaya made us feel even more welcomed when she stopped by the second day to make sure we were OK and had everything we needed to make our stay perfect! Tenaya was a great,warm and friendly host and we'll recommend Clara's cottage over and over again! We can't wait to go back!
We had a lovely stay at this cabin. Tenaya was very welcoming and informative. The cabin was small but cozy, and the yard is beautiful. The dunes are only a few minutes walk and are definitely worth exploring. I appreciate how much care our host took to tell us about the best ways to access them. Great experience all around!
Tenaya has a great listing here, well stocked and cozy. The fire was set, and ready to light, there were treats in the fridge, and tranquil calm on the property.
The location here is perfect, a moments walk to the dunes, where you can spend the day walking and exploring, or lounging on a hammock Tenaya has set up on a hill.
A great getaway spot!
Clara's Cottage exceeded our expectations once again -- quite remarkable given that this was our second stay! We enjoyed all our favorite elements from our first stay (very well-designed and comfortable space/layout of the cottage, the outdoor tub, cozy wood stove, beautiful garden, delicious homemade muffins and jam) plus some new treats: watching the sun set across the dunes from the hammock, admiring the burst of spring flowers in the garden, making a short drive to Russian Gulch State Park where we hiked to a waterfall.
As always, Tenaya's attention to detail and graciousness as a host is wonderful! Clara's Cottage is truly a magical retreat!
I can't say enough about Tenaya and The Rose Cottage. My mom and I spent 3 days here and it was truly wonderful. Tenaya is a gracious host and the cottage and grounds are one of a kind. The cottage is cozy and lovingly decorated and Tenaya provided us with delicious homemade muffins and jam the first day. I highly recommend this place and we will be back!
The stay here was incredible. One of the best things I've done in a long time. Beautiful and peaceful, our favorite things were the outdoor bath and the dune beach (both things unique to this cottage). Tenaya is so nice and stocked the fridge with great muffins and home-made jam and helped me out and took the time to get to know me, even though I was a little technologically clueless about AirBnB. I really hope to return soon.
What a wonderful escape! I found the journey mild to and from this truly peaceful and regenerating little home by the sea. I couldn't have asked for more - the weather was fine, the company was friendly, and the gardens, the private beach access, the quiet breeze and flicker of sunlight on the backs of birds fluttering about. Very, very nice.
