"This is a great cottage! We spent a relaxing couple of days at the Richardson's cottage a half block from Seabright Beach. The bed was comfy and there were no complaints from the kids about the pull-out couch. The outdoor shower was great for hosing off the kids after they rolled in the sand. Not only was the cottage well appointed, it was very convenient to the Boardwalk and great neighborhood restaurants. We left the car and walked everywhere. It took us less than 10 minutes to walk to the Boardwalk. The Richardsons were great, very responsive when we had an issue getting finding the key (totally my fault). They returned our security deposit very quickly (within a day or two of checking out). We plan to make this an annual trip."

"Our group of old college friends stayed here for our friend's wedding weekend. Renting a house is such a better experience than a bunch of hotel rooms - seriously, there's no comparison. Arbor Bench is a great house for this (or any other) purpose. It's private, quiet, and very well-appointed. We never did make it to the pond, but if I were here with kids, I'd be all over it. I highly recommend this property!"

"We were visiting Santa Rosa for a family wedding and chose this home because it was close to where the bride and groom lived. We were 3 couples, one with a toddler, another couple solo and another couple with 2 college-age girls. The main space of the house was big enough that everyone was happy and we didn't get in each other's way. The master bedroom was spacious and had a small outdoor balcony. One thing to consider is that the bathroom in the master bedroom does not have a door and so if you are 4 people (using the trundle bed) there may be a problem with who is in the room when someone else is showering ... We worked it out so it wasn't a real problem. The other two bedrooms were somewhat small, especially with a crib in one, but like I said, it all worked out. The house was very comfortable and it had every amenity described in the listing. We contacted the owners about the whereabouts of the crib and they were very helpful in pointing us in the right direction. We didn't get to use the pool because it wasn't warm enough, but I should think in the warmer months it would get a lot of use! It was a very nice place to stay and we would recommend it to others!"

"Our recent seven night stay was wonderful! The home is spacious, beautifully appointed with plenty of seating for eating and game playing by the whole family. We loved the many decks and particularly the ones with ocean views. There were seven adults in our family group and all had comfortable accommodations. We enjoyed cooking and eating our meals together in the well-appointed and well-stocked kitchen. The beach was just a short walk away and the great location allowed us to enjoy a day at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, another day deep sea fishing, and having grocery stores, shops and even a mall nearby made the shoppers in our group very happy. The best thing about our week was the perfect weather! We still smile as we think about the highs of 70-74 degrees during our stay, now that we are back in the Fresno area with 100+ degree temperatures. The owners provided complete and accurate information and instructions to make our stay very trouble-free. We would definitely consider returning here for another stay."
