Very quiet, beautiful property. Well kept & clean!

Perfect for a small family. Quiet location with a country feel yet close to town and less than an hour from the beach.

Quiet and relaxing cottage

  • 5 of 5

Just as title states. Quiet and relaxing. The cottage was perfect as we were traveling with elderly parents and they were to walk around the property at their leisure; feed the horses and take pictures. They especially liked their afternoon adult beverages pool side.

Tidy Cottage in a Stress Free, Picturesque, and Tranquil Atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough positive, good things about this place. There's so much attention to detail in the landscaping, the environment is peaceful (hundreds of acres of well-kept, professional horse farms, a peace of heaven on earth!) - my wife and I loved waking up to see the beautiful palomino horses proudly roaming and being worked with. The cabin is clean and comfortable. The owner (Jean) is friendly, makes herself available (if needed) and allows you the freedom to wonder around (of course, for safety purposes, there are logically some off-limit areas). It was my second stay and I will return, if availability permits, whenever in the area.

Nice place!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage itself is really nice. It looks like it was a converted garage or storage house, but it was very well done. It had two nice sized bedrooms, a living room with a flat screen TV, a bathroom, a little kitchen area with a portable electric cook top and a dinette. It would have been a really comfortable stay if there was AC in the bedroom (we only used the master bedroom-- it had a ceiling fan, but it was not very strong). The AC in the living room was nice, but the cool air really didn't make it to the bedroom. The location was really good-- quiet and tranquil.

Owner's Response: I installed the brand new $10,000 air conditioning system that the professional air-conditioner company recommended I install for that space just last year. Now that I have been made aware that there is a problem, I will certainly provide extra fans.
