Stay and relax in our pet friendly cottage by the beach! Shell Cottage is a private cottage with located on a canal with a securely fenced front and back yard for your kids and dog.

Really darling cottage and very private yard great for the dogs. The nearby bay front is great for walking the dogs. However the neighborhood is very shabby, next to a unkempt trailer park, and doesn't warrant the overall price (we paid $445 dollars for 2 adults and 2 dogs for 2 nights!!)

Management response:

Hi and thanks for the feedback. We do disclose the location and even provide photos for viewing before booking. The neighborhood shouldn't distract from the value of the nice pet friendly cottage (your price also included pet fee, taxes, and cleaning fee). If you need to find the best locations for fishing or beachcombing just ask the neighbors! Thank you...

There were no surprises other than good ones and we truly enjoyed our stay…so much so that we already booked another week for this summer! My family lives in the area and we try to make several trips a...

To me this is a REALLY unique property and experience. Living in So Cal for most of my life, after being born in SF, this is to ME what a lot of the coast of Northern California USED to be like. There are MANY more pro's than con's!! PRO's: Very "coastal" experience and charm. From what we have researched, property...

Thanks for that great review as you hit all the right notes in our description! yes, it is near a trailer park, but those are long term tenants and are quite helpful and know all the great fishing holes. they even out the trash out for us every week. Gils' by the Bay-yes don't miss it! Dogs & Kids! Great...
