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!

The only plus is the location and nothing else

  • 3 of 5

The house had lot of spiders, we saw spiders crawling out of the tub jets! It was scary and uncomfortable. We had a dog with us and the moment we served him food we saw ants coming out of nowhere and spoiling his food. Not sure, if it is mentioned but the house doesn't have an AC. Moreover, the cutlery and utensils were greasy and I could see that they have not been washed properly. Overall, the property needs maintenance. We liked it as it allowed pets and was close to downtown.

Owner's Response: This is the first that I have heard about the ants. I will a service come in to spray.

Clean, quiet, comfortable and pet friendly.

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at this home, after staying there last summer also. It is clean, well maintained and a very easy commute into San Francisco, AND it is pet friendly.

The unit is immaculately clean and the bed is fantastic and is truly beyond comfortable!! I sleep on a tempurpedic mattress at home, and this was every bit as comfortable as my own. Another big selling point is the proximity to stores and restaurants, most of which are only a 5 minute walk. The neighborhood is quiet, and I felt very safe there. The kitchen is well equipped with almost anything that one would want or need. Ben, the owner, is helpful and very accommodating. I often recommend this place to friends, and I would definitely return again, and most likely will. It's a great find for the price, and again, very clean!! The owner welcomes well behaved dogs, which was what drew me there to begin with. It's pet friendly.

Nice location and place

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and the hot tub. Yard is just large enough to bring out 2 kitchen chairs to sit on. Bedding was extremely comfortable. Lots of items to cook with.

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.
