About this listing
Our Charming Country Cottage is in a beautiful secluded garden setting surrounded by Oak trees, California plants and flowers. It is a short drive to all amenities and you will feel like you are in your own private world. It's walking distance to trails and nature as well as minutes to the 101 freeway. It feels like a hidden sanctuary. We live here and rent it out when we travel so we apologize but it is not always available. It is super quiet, safe and relaxing.
Our Charming Country Cottage is the best of both worlds. You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere but you are close to everything. It consists of 2 Bedrooms (we use the 2nd bedroom as an Office and guest room). The home has a completely remodeled kitchen and living room.

Living room has vaulted high ceilings, French doors, wood fireplace, 52" flat screen TV, Cable TV and Streaming with Roku, Amazon, Netflix, you can add any channel like Showtime or HBO if you want it . The master bedroom has a Cal King Bed and french doors that open onto a beautiful deck beneath oak trees. The 2nd bedroom/office has a super comfortable single bed. ( we can provide a full size aero bed as well). We have super High Speed wireless internet, central air and heat, ceiling fans, outdoor dining, plenty of parking and a shared Washer/dryer. The exterior has been completely landscaped. There is outdoor living room and a beautiful outdoor shower and clawfoot bathtub. The street is dead end so very few cars come up here.

Other things to note
We only rent the cottage out when we travel so it's not always available but please let us know your dates and we will see if we can accommodate you. Most often there is a cool ocean breeze. Our street is very rural but it is only minutes to the 101 freeway ( freeway noise is negligible). We know all our neighbors and they are helpful and friendly. I have a guest house on the property with it's own private area, driveway etc. Right now my mom lives in it. The only thing that is shared is the washer dryer.
The rate that you pay for our cottage includes $4.00 of propane gas use a day. that come out to approximately $120 per month Included. Anything over that will be due on top of the day rate. It will also include $3 of electricity per day or approximately $100 per month and anything over and above that will be due on top of the day rate. You should not worry as you would have to be abusing the heat or Ac to go over these minimums and hardly ever use air conditioning here because of the cooling ocean breeze.
