My husband and I were looking for a romantic place to spend our anniversary and this was perfect. The cottage is quaint and cozy with breathtaking ocean views of Manresa Beach. The cottage was clean, tidy and decorated very nicely with a nautical theme and a few antiques. Although it was the middle of summer, it was a little cold at night so we used the fireplace and the place warmed up quickly. The back deck was so nice. We enjoyed watching the sunset from there our first night. The owners were very nice and easy to work with.
Enjoyed our stay at cottage very much. Very relaxing and easy access to beach. Will return soon.
I cannot find the words to describe how amazing this property is. There is a perfect view of the ocean everywhere you sit in the front room. You can fall asleep and wake up to hearing the ocean waves crashing on the beach, such a peaceful feeling. A quick two minute walk and we were on the sand.
I could not have found a better place to have my post divorce bonding vacation with my stepchildren, they are excited to already be making plans for our next stay.
This cottage was exactly what we had hoped for. Cozy, Comfy, Clean, Great Location, Incredible Views! The perfect place to spend our anniversary weekend. Owners were very accomodating and helpful. We didn't want to leave, and can't wait to go back! Thank you for a perfect weekend getaway :-)
'We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the rental cottage and plan to return again next summer. We just need to verify which dates we'd like to secure for next years schedule. As soon as we decide on the time and length of our stay, I'll be in contact to reserve for next summer.
Thank you again for such professional service'
'Thank you so much for the cottage! It was the BEST vacation I have had in years. Wow, what a place. And the best part... my phone didn't work unless I was in the driveway...!
It was heavenly. I will defintely be renting it again. I hope everything was okay for your next guest.'
We just love this place! The beach walking, the view, the proximity to Capitola and Santa Cruz, Monterey and Carmel... Wow!
'we loved our stay, will recommend to friends and come back again!'
Thanks, it was perfect -- we're raving about the cottage to friends and family!
I just wanted to let you know how fabulous my stay was. We had such a great time! We just might make this a yearly thing.
