"We stayed here with three generations for a birthday weekend celebration on the coast. The home is beautiful, comfortable, and charming. The location is secluded and quiet, but a quick drive to great coffee shops, beaches, fruit stands, and grocery stores. My two kids (1 and 4 years) enjoyed the chickens, gecko, cats (outdoors only), bunnies, hammock, and garden. My son loved the kids books, and we found the kids books in French to be an added bonus for us as French speakers. The home has a beautiful deck with a hot tub, grill, and outdoor seating. The inside was clean with lots of space for our group. The owner was very helpful before, during, and after our stay (especially since we left something behind!)
One thing to know is that there are others living on the property. We did worry a bit about the kids making noise too early in the morning, but no one complained, and the people we encountered were friendly.
The only thing that took a little getting used to for us was the water situation- the tap water is from the creek and not suitable for drinking. It was actually no big deal in the end. The owner provides ample, clean bottled water for cooking and drinking. The water pressure in the upstairs shower was a bit weak, and it was a bit hard to bathe the kids in the beautiful downstairs claw foot tub. But, we did stay here for the 100+ year old charm, so it comes with the territory. We would definitely stay here again!"
