We were hesitant when we saw photos online and drove into the driveway....but we met Maxine the owner who is warm, friendly and delightful to talk to and were sold after we had our tour. The gardens are beautiful and she has atleast 3 sets of patio furniture in different hidden areas for you to sit in. We rented the cottage for 4 adults and one baby and it was perfect. She has redecorated it with antique furnishings and crisp white linens. The bathroom was brand new and elegant. The beds were very comfortable with fluffy down comforters. The cottage has a large tv and dvd player and lots of books to peruse. Breakfast was several courses and delicious. She has a huge sitting area in the main house for guests with a flat screen tv. All the rooms are decorated elegantly and I would consider equivalent to a 5 star hotel. We definately recommend it to others. The only negative is its too far to walk to town but its only a 5 minute drive. There is a lovely wooded area within walking distance and you can walk to the beach in 20 minutes.
