Felt like home!

We stayed a month, and thoroughly enjoyed it. We'll plan to return. The Barrett's took very good care of us & we feel as if we've made some lovely friends.

If you want to feel utterly at home, while you're away, you could not do better than this charming, spacious, immaculate cottage ~ complete with outdoor patio and vast views all the way to the ocean. Serene comfort, with all the amenities ~ just wonderful (people too).

Great Getaway

I loved this cottage ....let's start with the inside...clean, very comfortable and neat....feels like home. The kitchen plus the grill outside allows you to fix a superb dinner. The views from the front porch were wonderful... the breeze.. all heaven scent. Personally, one of the best aspects of the cottage was how wonderful I felt while I was there......the sunshine, views and breeze were so amazing. The folks that run the cottage are exceptional...... 5 stars!

excellent service and accomodations

Self-Contained Cottage

Gracious hosts Robin and Aidan welcomed us to the hilltop cottage next to their own home. They provided maps and directions and had stocked the fridge for our breakfast on the porch. Their new puppy provided entertainment on the open wildflower patch where we also watched 3 hot air balloons.
