"The good: Clean house, quiet neighborhood, within walking distance to town and beach. Town is VERY hilly so be prepared by bringing walking shoes. I wouldn't recommend lugging your stuff to and from beach on foot. View from upper balcony is beautiful (no view from house/deck).
The ok: Gas oven wouldn't light for us, could use another chair in living room, no light by door made it hard to see unlocking it, hot tub was HOT and no instructions to turn it down, only 4 washcloths but plenty of towels for the week.
The bad: Nothing! We loved our stay."

"We spent a romantic and relaxing Valentine's Day weekend at Oceansong! It was obvious that from the moment that we opened the front door and heard the welcoming soft music, champagne, and chocolate awaiting us, that we were in for a memorable time! The house is "oozing" with character and charm! Creta and Bill were wonderful hosts! Bill stopped by to greet us was very helpful in giving us tips about the area, some history and points of interest that we may want to see.
We were excited to spend our first day exploring through some bushy areas at the beach. When we got back to the house, I realized that I had a tick in my arm....yikes! :-( Trying to be brave and not really being prepared for this, I called Bill and Creta to see if they could come to the rescue. Bill not only brought over some tweezers, a magnifying glass, and Hydrogen Peroxide, he also helped me get that critter out of my arm. I was thankful that they lived very close by and were so helpful in an "emergency". The weekend went by way too quickly...so quickly in fact, that I lost track of days. I appreciated that Creta and Bill checked in with us the morning of our scheduled departure or we may have inadvertently "crashed" the next visitors stay. Next time we will just have to stay a bit longer!"

"A friend and I spent a relaxing week at this property in June 2015. For us it was the best rest and relaxation any doctor could possibly order. We had one concern/confusion, and a quick phone call later, the owner had it resolved and clarified. He is very responsive. The take an item/leave an item pantry is a wonderful idea.
You'll need to adopt a European style of living for your kitchen activities, which I enjoy and prefer, but others may need to consider. The reason is the refrigerator is small, but this is the only drawback, and I found I was able to easily adapt.
The town of Bolinas is delightful and there are many rural roads/trails for hiking and exercising.
The care the owner took and placed when he built this lovely cottage is easy to see in the detailed workmanship found throughout. Do pay mind to the short, but easily understood, list of instructions he has left. This is an environmentally friendly cottage, and this list helps you understand and work with its environmentally friendly qualities.
I would highly recommend this property and would gladly stay there again. I look forward to coming back someday and enjoying a cocktail in the hot tub as I look up at the stars."
