Perfect place to stay for wedding/honeymoon

My fiance and I came to the San Diego area for our wedding and honeymoon. After many hours searching properties, I came upon this cottage. I contacted Michael and he responded quickly to availablility and rate info.
This is a perfectly beautiful cottage. Our time at the cottage was mostly evenings and early mornings, as we had many activities planned. We arrived at nearly 10pm on Wednesday evening. Michael had called to confim arrival time and key pickup. He was kind enough to let me know that right off the freeway was a grocery store in case there were things we might want to get for our stay.
The cottage is located right in the village. We walked to the beach two evenings, a short block and a half. I had my hair and makeup done at a local shop for my wedding and it was a short walk back to the cottage to dress. You can walk to many of the shops and foodie places.
Towels were plentiful, as was hot water and a strong stream in the shower (a pet peeve of mine)...new husband prefers a shower type shower head, gentle and soft...I want a strong hard stream. The shower head was adjustable so this was a plus, plus for me. Toilet in bathroom is behind the bathroom door...ample visitors will fit, but it is a smaller space.
There is nice tile on the bathroom, hardwood floors in livingroom, carpet in the bedroom. Plenty of room for hubby and me...the bedroom is large, with a comfortable king bed and lots of closet space and dresser drawers.
Nice flat screen tv and cable, wireless internet easy to connect with instructions provided. Nice kitchen table and kitchen CLEAN! Peeked at the patio, but never had an opportunity to use it.
This is actually a duplex cottage...there were neighbors...elderly and quiet, saw them only one time. Others have mentioned the train...let me just say...yes, it is close, very close and loud. This was not an issue as it stopped at 10pm, not a big deal. We were not at the cottage during the day, so no problem with the proximity. I would have liked to have seen a shade of some kind over the front door. There was a storm door, glass front and a nice front door, also glass. On the inside of the front door there was a bamboo type screen over the glass, it cut down the light entering the living room and you could see right through it. In the evening with the light on in the front room, there simply was a lack of privacy as anyone outside can see in.
A fantastic place to stay, I highly recommend it!! Thank you, Micheal!
