Guestbook comments from the manager

This home was very clean, quiet, with comfy beds and great kitchen setup with everything we needed. The only problem we had was the downstairs sofa and chairs as we were there a whole month and it was uncomfortable to sit on. That would be something we would have to change for the next time. Enoyed our stay in the home versus a condo which we've rented before. This was very cozy.

Comfortable, Cozy and Convenient Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We hesitated to stay in Kenja Kottage because of its close proximity to the community pool (literally about 15 steps behind the house) and the community beach access (most of the community walks right by the house on their way to the beach). HOWEVER, we were delighted to find that the house was well-built and pretty much sound-proof. Our bedroom was right up against the pool and we heard NOTHING. In addition, the house is adorable and very well maintained. No complaints. Cuteness abounds with this little cottage. The beds were comfy, the kitchen was nicely stocked, everything was in working order and in good shape. We would strongly recommend staying here!!!

"Home Away" from home says it all!

  • 4 of 5

5 adults stayed a week with 2 extra adults dropping in mid-week. Cottage Retreat is secluded, secure, and central to everything. Beds were very comfortable and the pool/Jacuzzi area was awesome. There were some very minor issues - the small kitchen appliances had some wear and tear on them and the dishwasher didn't clean well until better soap was used. However, Kathy was very responsive to any concerns we had. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Kenja Cottage and will return next year.

Property was great for kids, plenty of space. The beach is right across the street and the pool is right behind the house. Kathy was great to lease from and very accommodating. We will definitely book again.
