We just got back from a mini-vacation at this house this afternoon. Fantastic place! The location is incredible, less than a mile from several restaurants, bars, and groceries. The ocean is just across the street, and you can sit on the front porch and watch the waves do their thing.
The front porch has a locking gate, so our dog was able to hang out there without fear of him finding his way off of the deck. The back yard has a fence and gate as well and the warm afternoon sun was awesome. You can pick up the wireless network from the backyard, which meant that we got to use the big table out there as our out-of-town office.
The cottage itself is great. The heaters kept it comfortable temp wise, the bed is comfy, and the huge sectional couch is *awesome* for lounging. There are puzzles, games, and loads of movies for staying in, and the kitchen is well stocked with spices and cooking supplies (pots/pans, decent knives, spatulas, etc).
Perhaps most importantly: Amy (the owner) is GREAT! It's awesome to deal with an individual instead of a crappy rental company. Pricing was easy and affordable, especially considering the radness level of this house.
All in all, it was a great trip, and I'd recommend this property to friends, family, complete strangers who aren't a-holes, you name it. We are already trying to plan a time to go back.
