Wonderful location for a quiet, relaxing retreat.
My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. We were looking for a relaxing and beautiful getaway with a few activities to enjoy, and we found it here!
The bungalow is conveniently located a couple of blocks from the ferry dock and close to the main café and small store. It was beautiful in every way and obviously made with quality in mind. The view is spectacular and well enjoyed through the very large French doors and windows that spanned the whole private back of the building. The property has a couple of decks and a hammock with good opportunity to lean back and enjoy the atmosphere. They also can provide bikes at no charge, which we used to explore the island more up close. Other attractions we enjoyed on the island included the local farms and gardens where you can purchase produce and flowers on a honor system; you pick lavender farms; tide pool exploring; hikes; small local Saturday market; and interacting with the friendly locals. There are plenty of things to keep you occupied or just relax at your own pace.
The only complaint we had is the bed. As far as fold out beds go, it worked well. But still too thin and uncomfortable for a really good wake up. We didn't sleep badly, but definitely felt the difference between a more soft bed. Also, the TV was very small. It just seemed odd to have cable and lots of movies to choose from, but to provide a very small screen to do so. We didn't expect a huge screen, but they spared no expense in the other details of the bungalow and it seemed out of place. We didn't come here to watch TV the whole time, though it's certainly is a way to help unwind and relax.
Overall, the amazing view, quality in the details, and great price more than make up for anything. We would more than recommend this location and gracious hosts to anyone who may enjoy this type of getaway!
Tourists without a Car,
Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your time here. I am sorry you found the bed not as comfortable as you would have wished. Because of the size of the cottage and to utilize both the Living area and sleeping, we purchased the best Hidebed we could find, a Comfort Sleeper by American Leather which has NO bars to catch you in the back. Only one other person has suggested it is not as comfortable as she would have wished. As to the TV, initially we did not have a television there but put in one from our home to facilitate the internet and then added television and movies. At some point we may install a larger TV however this is the first time anyone has commented on it's small size. As we disire to keep the cost of the rental as low as it is at this point we really don't plan any changes. Thank you so much for your kind review. We do appreciate your imput.
