                                              Mindy R.

                                              We had a wonderful stay during the month of March at this lovely home. The house had everything you could possibly need or want and was decorated beautifully. The rooms were all large and the different floors made it quite private even when having a lot of guests/family members visiting! The owner responded to every question or email promptly and her "house manager" was a dream to work with!

                                              The location of the house was great and very close to the beach and pool. We could ride our bikes into the village and it was close to restaurants, shops and grocery stores. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the house and our experience there.

                                              Our stay could not have been better!

                                              Linda B.

                                              The house was perfectly designed for our group of 7 adults. We experienced uncommonly warm weather for late February, so we enjoyed every deck-rooftop to back porch. I, especially, enjoyed reading while swinging. The short walk to the beach and the pool drew us there everyday. We had breakfast in the kitchen every morning and dinner more than half the nights we were there. Our one suggestion would be to have more space provided for the food renters bring, since the owner is overly generous with kitchen supplies. Thanks to Kathy for her warm welcome.

                                              Lovely home

                                              We love Daydream Cottage and are so appreciative of the owners being pet lovers! It is comfortable, clean, very nicely furnished, well-kept and well-stocked. We'll be back!
