I wanted a quiet writing retreat. I got that. The owners of this property were kind, helpful and non-intrusive. The evening I arrived I was quite stressed, exhausted and a bit disoriented (because I didn't know where I was going)! They called me the next day just to check in and see if I was okay. They didn't have to do that. The cottage had all the essentials; nothing fussy which was fine with me. A few minor adjustments would have made a difference although a minor one. Both owners seemed pleased that I cared enough about their property and subsequent visitors to share some of my ideas for refinements with them. The cottage was clean, the blankets fluffy and fresh smelling, cooking utensils were more than adequate and I had all the quiet I wanted. I spent hours a day (in the early morning and late afternoons), walking up and down the easily accessible beach. I was so thrilled with this experience that I am coming back to one of their other rental properties in September.
