Kelly was a great host and made our check in very easy. The courtyard is beautiful and we enjoyed the pool and garden. The beds were very comfortable and clean with nice bedding. The kitchenette was small and using a small sink for the weekend was a bit clumsy. We enjoyed our stay and making friends with Kelly's boys made the vacation rental special for our grandchildren. We would come back and stay with planning on eating out more often. Yes I would recommend this cottage for small families or couples. Very beautiful pool setting with courtyard with welcome guest.
