5 Stars-A real Gem!

  • 5 of 5

So happy to have found this cottage!

First, the comfortable bed was like sleeping on a cloud. I have a medical back issue and I slept the best I've slept in years on this mattress.....I gotta buy one now. I actually woke up pain free, which never happens!!

The cottage is quiet, private and charming. Everything you need is there. The bathtub is deep with jets. Big t.v., great kitchen, wonderful patio. Closet space, overhead fan, good heater, all in all really comfortable-like having your own little house.

The owner, Ben, is very efficient and quick to respond to anything you may need. He wants to be sure you're happy and that everything is working in the all was!!

Close proximity to everything. I'm a former Marin resident, this cottage is centrally located to everything. Even San Francisco is close.

I will return, this time I will stay longer!

Cozy space, but could use some updates.

  • 3 of 5

I enjoyed the jacuzzi and sauna, but my husband and I had to swap sides of the bed every other night so at least one of us got some sleep. The mattress should be replaced as there is a huge sunken hole on the left side.

Owner's Response: As you can see the renter just prior, on April 17 stated how wonderful the bed was. The mattress was changed 4 months ago with a expensive pillow top mattress which has a layer of memory foam on the top. It would have been much better if the complaint was made while the renter was there, so that it could have been explained or showed in more detail to management.

Cozy getaway close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

The owner answered all of our questions and provided us with everything we needed to know about the property and the local area. The place has a large bedroom and bathroom along with a full kitchen and eating area. The hot tub and sauna worked perfectly as did the internet. Great location with a Safeway, Starbucks, and other restaurants and shops less then half a mile away. Definitely recommend for any couple looking for a fun getaway spot in north bay.

All right.

  • 4 of 5

Property was clean. The bed left a bit to be desired. When I rolled towards the middle, it felt like there was a deep hole.😂� By the way, I'm not a big person. Would also have appreciated a secured wifi.

Owner's Response: Comcast internet was down due to an area outage; beyond my control. Mattress is only 15 months old & no one else has complained. I will have it checked. Sorry for the problems.
