    The beautiful, peaceful little cottage was perfect for an extended weekend away from the city. Highly recommended!

    Very lovely relaxing atmosphere, my 8 yr old can't wait to go back! Very handy to 7th ave for buses. I'd recommend taking some supplies as you won't want to leave once you get there except for a beach or vineyard walk. The cottage is dog friendly but best to establish if there's any spraying going on at nearby vineyards and mind yr pet around them.

    Location so peaceful and great that it's so close to Casita Miro. Loved the outdoor bath and the house was nice and cosy.
