Wonderful seaside cottage

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying here - the cottage is small, but well appointed. M’Liss is an extremely gracious hostess. I managed to screw up, and arrived at the cottage a day early. M’Liss bent over backwards to accommodate our circumstances. We were very grateful for her ingenuity and flexibility.

Lovely area and great location!

  • 3 of 5

I was very pleased with the cottage. The kitchen was well stocked with staples. There were great utensils and pots and pans. Cupboards were well stocked with plate settings. The kitchen is bright and cheerful.

However, my husband didn't like the steep and narrow driveway. The other tenant was very accommodating and made sure that their car was parked in the garage and not on the driveway so that we could back up and go down the driveway head first instead of backing up--too risky when you are not used to backing down a narrow driveway. The closet in the spare bedroom was not easily opened and their were no drawers in the room. However, there may have been shelves in the closet--just not easily opened to see if there were some.

The back patio had a grill, but it wasn't a pleasant setting even though there was space for a table and chairs.

Lighting was great in the master bedroom--not so much in the smaller bathroom. The shower door in the smaller bathroom was not easy to open and close according to my husband.

On the bonus side, there was a walkway just across the street that takes you down to the 101 that goes right through Del Mar (the main drag). You do not hear any of the traffic from the inside of the cottage.

The best tonic

  • 5 of 5

This sweet cottage was everything we could have hoped for. It was immaculately clean and definitely well cared for. The beds were excellent quality and we slept like babies each night. For such a small kitchen we cooked with ease each night with quality pots and pans, tableware and did I mention a wonderful grill! The Petes coffee was so nice to have! I'm not a lover of carpet in a home but that is the only thing that took some getting used to. Thank you M'Liss for sharing your treasure with us. We will be back.

Incredible view of the ocean and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing vacation! The House is right in town and easily accessible to the beach. The kids had a blast! The house had everything we needed and M'Liss was always available to ask questions. It was clean and lovely. The views were definitely my favorite part! Couldn't be happier and would definitely stay there again.
