We were delighted to spend part of our California holiday at this gorgeous retreat. The attention to detail is impressive - from the lovingly designed and very comfortable interiors to the entertaining areas outside. We were touched to be welcomed by sunflowers at the entry gate and generous treats in the kitchen. Cyndy made us feel instantly welcome. We love to cook and felt right at home in the fully-appointed kitchen. Being able to pick our own lemons, oranges, fresh basil and rosemary made this experience all the more special. The best part of the day was having wine out on the loungers and being entertained by a rabbit and a Snowy Egret. This property is conveniently close to the beach, shopping and dining. Although we have never been, we often felt as if we were in Tuscany. Highly recommended for a couple needing a serious getaway, a family or a few friends. We will definitely be back.
