Maria is the most excellent hostess, making you feel welcome and at home. The cottage is attached to the main house, and you'd think there might be overflow people traffic and noise, but not so. This is definitely a place of peace and serenity with Maria's beautiful gardens. Everything was immaculate and inviting. I was missing my comfy chair from home in the living area, but that's what happens when you travel. If you're looking for TV, this is not the place to come (3-4 channels), but they provide a wireless connection which I totally appreciated. The back patio gives you a private place outside with a wonderful view of the ocean. I would go back in a flash.
