Sandra and Bill have a most beautiful little place and take great care to make their guests happy. They were kind, helpful, and went the extra mile to make us feel welcomed and give us everything we needed (and then some). Their gardens are gorgeous and serene, the guest room is large, quite comfortable and so pretty, and everything was... More

My husband and I live nearby in Laguna Beach, but just needed to get away from the craziness of life. We could not have picked a better place, it was like we were hundreds of miles away, not minutes from home. The accomodations were awesome and the food and hospitality was second to none. The gardens were just beautiful and... More

My wife and I were guests for 3 days and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were tastefully decorated, very clean, and well furnished. The grounds were immaculate, private, and exquisite. The service provided by Bill and Sandra first-class including breakfast on the patio each morning with a fantastic array of food. Our rooms were freshened anew daily. We were... More

First of all, whatever I say in this review will never be enough of a compliment! This little gem is big on comfort, service, beauty, colour, peace and two great big hearts who keep this beauty feel like family and home from home in the best sense! I have never ever come across such service in all my travels, period.... More

My Wife, and I stayed at the GC the evening of our wedding night. Sandra, was very hospitable, patient, and kind to us even after we arrived at the GC at 10pm. We were greeted with a hug, and a smile, and guided to our room. The room was lovely, we had a great fire, large comfortable, and clean bed,... More

It was a wonderful place to unwind for a short get away. The room was tastefully decorated and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast was fresh and served outdoors in the lovely garden setting. The owners were accommodating. The beach is just blocks away, accessed by walking. I would return. Delightful!

I wanted a private, intimate setting to propose to my fiance and the Garden Cottage could not have worked out any better than it did - the hosts are warm and accommodating, the grounds are beautiful, with nice, faint background music playing it seems at all times. The accommodations include a nice kitchenette with microwave, refrigerator, hot plates, crockpots, utensils... More

What a lovely, private, quiet, and ideal location to spend a weekend away from the kids! Bill and Sandra are incredibly hospitable and accommodating. The breakfast was amazing. The cottage is a five minute jog from the beach. The garden is exquisite and the perfect place to enjoy a good book. Couldn't ask for anything more!
