Perfect wedding weekend!!!
"My husband and I spent our wedding weekend in this beautiful, cozy cottage. We were married up the street at the Martin Johnson House and this home was a perfect retreat. We live in San Diego but wanted to be closer to the venue without staying in a crowdy hotel. The location you could not have asked for better! With our venue a half mile away, the cottage also served as the grooms and groomsmen getting ready headquarters. Plenty of space for 6 men to get ready and take amazing photos in this quaint cottage. The two bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect and a good size. With a market down the street and the beach a couple blocks down, the location could not be beat! On top of a perfect location, the cottage was impeccably clean, the beds were big and comfortable, and the kitchen was fully equipped for anything we needed. My favorite room in the house had to be the front porch! It was perfect for a morning coffee, taking in the ocean breeze and relaxing after our wedding. The garden was well taken care of and you could tell the owners take great pride and work into their cottage. Bob and his wife were a delight to work with and so welcoming to our big weekend. Our wedding weekend was perfect and Truel's Cottage had a big reason for that!! This cottage will always hold a special place in my heart."

"This is a fantastic house for either a large family or group of friends. The beach is so close that you could always come home for lunch. The BBQ and dining area is large enough that if you didn't want to go out for dinner, you could easily prepare something for 10+ people with ease."

"We stayed for a week, two families, four adults, 2 five-year old girls. We had a lovely time. The house is spacious, comfortable, and all of the necessities are available, including a tv in nearly every room, which might sound like overkill, but not when you have two kids who have different movie agendas. We had a couple of minor hitches and Brant was super responsive. We will definitely be back."

"We were in town for our daughters wedding at the Martin Johnson House. This home was perfect for our family (4 adults & 2 children)! We stayed in the rental for 8 days and it very quickly became home to us, which is important with 2 little kids in the house. Everything is there that you need in the house along with the grill on the patio to the beach items in the garage. My son especially like the quiet office space and used it daily. Coming from cold and dreary Ohio, I especially loved the beautiful courtyards and being able to open the doors and still not worry about the little girls getting out, as the house is all gated. The house is a short stroll to the beach, the playground and the local shops and restaurants. Brant Westfall was excellent to work with. He and his wife were quick to answer all questions I had. I highly recommend this home and will definitely book again"
