PERFECT

Cottage and grounds just as in photos if not better. So comfortable, clean, cozy. For a small cottage it is very livable-great storage. The yard is gorgeous-loved watching the hummingbirds. Owner so helpful-thank you!!! Also loved the proximity to the ocean bike path-1/2 block to westcliff drive. PS-we had 1 adult plus girls ages 17, 15, and 11 and were very comfortable.

SACRAMENTO VISITOR

  • 5 of 5
Property and location was better than advertised! Only 3 homes from Cowells Beach and walking distance everywhere else. The home was perfect for one person and would work great for up to 4 visitors. Well maintained and decorated. Had everything I needed. Very quiet, except for the seals and the waves, which is exactly what one wants to hear when visiting a beach community. The owner was very helpful with suggestions. The time passed way too quickly. Highly recommend to anyone who bikes, surfs, visit the boardwalk(five minute walk) or just wants to relax.

SPLENDID

  • 5 of 5
I am so happy I chose to stay here for my writing retreat. Rebecca, you have done a spectacular job in designing and decorating this little house.

Wherever I look, I see attention to aesthetic detail, from the lattice work along the less attractive view to the north, to the complementary landscaping colors, to the colorful crockery in the open cupboards, to the panel alongside the stove that hides the gap between stove and wall. Your website really does not do the property justice.

You've also thought about comfort, and how people will use the space. I love the party lights on the deck, the toney patio set and lawn chairs, the curtains and shades on every window, all the useful kitchen paraphenalia, the helpful information in the welcome letter.

And of course, all the "regular" things were taken care of too, like everything being spotlessly clean when I arrived. This little side street was quiet, safe, and restful, but I was close to everything I needed.

I would stay here again IN A HEARTBEAT.

Indeed, I can't wait to return!

A LITTLE PIECE OF PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures of this cottage and reviews only begin to capture all that the property and the location have to offer. Our family of four (with two teens who took advantage of the loft sleeping area), thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was meticulous and tastefully decorated, while the setting tranquil! Rebecca was extremely thorough and thought of everything necessary to make this a successful stay. Within walking distance of the Boardwalk, restaurants, and the beach, it was a hidden gem offering a peaceful and quiet location complete with laundry facilities, off street parking, the sounds of sea lions, and a beautiful yard/deck area conducive to meals outside, reading, or even taking a nap! We can't say enough about this "home away from home".

SANTA CRUZ COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely vacation home. It was small, but so well laid out that there was really plenty of space for our young family of five. Especially with the beautiful tropical grounds surrounding the cottage and private lot tucked back behind the main house. Vicinity to the beach, wharf, and boardwalk could not be beat. The owner loaned us her Monterey Aquarium passes, which was a great perk. The décor of the cottage was so pretty and everything we needed was right at hand. It was very clean and with the warm outdoor shower we could help to keep it that way after coming back from the beach. The owner left a list of recommendations that was very helpful and everything we took in off the list was spot on. My husband and I surf and it was very convenient to take turns in the morning going out to Cowells beach with our board just a few minutes walk from the home while the kids slept in. We will definitely recommend this home to our friends.
