  • Great Girl's Getaway

    "We saw whales from the deck!!!!! This was an absolutely beautiful, well appointed home in a magnificent setting. The photos don't do it justice. We were a group of four women and we each had a private room and bath. It was extremely comfortable and the common areas were inviting. In fact, although we had dining out and activities planned, we barely left the site because we were so content and enamored with the place. I highly recommend this property for a single family, two families traveling together, or a group of 4-6 friends or colleagues traveling together. There is a private beach and lots of beautiful hikes. The hot tub overlooking the ocean is a lovely way to wind down the day too."

  • Charming luxurious retreat

    "This two story cottage is more beautifullll than the pictures show. We said that as soon as we walked in. The atmosphere is so warm and the light all day is amazing. It is charming and still the decor leaves space for YOU and is in the best way neutral. And ..the views! Pictures do not show how big the porch is that faces the ocean and the amazing sunsets. We had colder weather and so we usually lay on the bed upstairs and watched the sun setting from there or sat with a glass of wine on the cozy couch upstairs. It actually feels like you have two houses in one. Perfect ...when one of us got up earlier or wanted some alone time. Weather did permit some meals on the porch. You will find a table and grill. The lounging chars are not the most comfy but we did enjoy sitting there of course. We have to tell you about the birds. We had birds coming to visit us on the porch. A few seeds or granola and they ate out of your hand. We enjoyed that. The garden surrounding the cottage is very well taken care of too and sooooo many flowers to enjoy. Many you will find in vases waiting for you in the home. That is a lovely touch! Everything is of best quality. The towels are soooo soft. The bathrobes plush. The bed is wonderful. The kitchen supplies generous . Many informative books . You will find all you need. The bathroom...yes it is small. Shower is powerful though. Here we would have needed a bit more space just for putting our things. We stayed here 10 days so you bring more with you then :) !...maybe an extra shelf or little shelves in the window? The area is our favorite now. So close to everything and amazing vegetation and views. The owners home is close by, that was a bit of a surprise at first but ....we quickly realized that all has been arranged for complete privacy. Plants are placed for visual privacy and there are blinds where you would want them. Upstairs you are only facing nature and in the downstairs there was just one Window where we pulled down the blinds ( although the view to the garden is breathtaking) Plus...we did not even see our gracious landlady except for the introduction tour and when we received a sweet send off in the end. She is a wonderful woman who obviously really cares for the place and makes sure your experience is a 5 star one. What made this place so special for us where the generosity, the personal touches, the beauty, the silence ....and that it immediately felt like home."

    "Our trip was like a dream .....something out of a movie. We spent three fabulous nights in this amazing beachfront home to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary. My husband and I and our five children enjoyed quality time amongst the beauty of the California coast. The sound of the ocean and views from the home are more than breathtaking. Nora was there to welcome us for the celebration with fresh flowers and amenities throughout the home made to feel like you were at a spa resort. The home is clean and has every luxury you could possibly imagine to make your stay comfortable and enjoying. We did not have the most favorable weather but what better place to be than in front of a crackling fireplace with the sound of the ocean right at your fingertips. It was a dream trip and one that we will always remember. Thank you Nora for allowing us the opportunity to share your home and it's beauty."

  • Wonderful stay!

    "Stayed at Cottage by the Sea for four nights and loved every minute! Jann is a fabulous hostess who thought of our every need and then some. Cottage is very comfortable in a great location. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and very welcoming. Definitely looking forward to returning."
