5/5 Excellent

Quiet oasis.
Very private Cute cottage. Enjoyed our stay.

5/5 Excellent

Charming cottage with a beautiful lush yard
My family and I traveled from Texas to this lovely guest cottage for a 3-night stay. Nigel is a thoughtful and responsive host, and we lacked for nothing while we were there. We hope to be back before too long!

4/5 Good

My wife loved the decorating of the cottage. Thanks for allowing us to stay there.

5/5 Excellent

Short Stay after a long day of travel
We arrived a little after 10:30 at night and Nigel stayed up late and made sure that we made it into the cottage and that we were able to get in, and even walked us through where everything was. Next time I travel to this area, this will be where I stay. A hidden Gem and an awesome host. Thanks Nigel. The new shower and bathroom were beautiful and much needed after a rough day of air travel.

5/5 Excellent

Cozy secluded cottage
Nigel is an excellent host/owner. He was very responsive during the reservation process, as well as answering several questions I had ahead of our arrival. This property is tucked away behind the owner's cottage, and he provided extra details and pictures on how to find it. The cottage itself is very cozy and we felt secluded in spite of being near a busier street. The road noise was not an issue for us at all. Upon arrival there was fresh fruit on the table and cold water and drinks in the fridge, which was so welcome after traveling. During our stay, Nigel responded very quickly to one minor detail we needed. I would definitely book with him again! He's an awesome, friendly host!
