My husband and I found this spot online and stayed here for our 1st anniversary in 2015. It was lovely. We planned on coming back at the beginning of October 2016 for our 2nd anniversary. Then an unexpected death in the family occurred. I emailed the owners approx. 2-3 weeks ahead of our scheduled date(s) for a refund of our... More

The cottage was absolutely beautiful, spotlessly clean and the kitchen was so well equipped!!! Spent a few very enjoyable hours in the hot tub and explored the rugged west coast.... China beach is beautiful as advised by Ron. Many... More

We loved it here. It is a gorgeous place to stay, with amazing gardens all around and an unbeatable view from your front door. There is everything you could need here, with cooking utensils, barbecue, hot tub, hammock, toaster oven, microwave, hot plate, wonderfully comfy bed, cards, books - and beautiful surroundings.

Myself and my adult children spent a weekend at this great resort. As the weather was not the best we spent most of our time relaxing in the spacious and comfortable Captain's Quarters. We had the fireplace roaring both nights and used the amazingly stocked kitchen to prepare gourmet meals rather than venturing out in the rain. Highly recommended.
