This was our second time at the cottage. The place is close to Trader Joe's and the Gourmet Getto. There are other good places to visit, like Acme Bakery and Monterey Market also within walking distance if you are willing to invest the time. The house is intimate and very clean. Yet we were there with our 14 years old son and the three of us had enough of room to move around. The balcony by the kitchen was very nice to enjoy the morning coffee. We will definitely be back.
