We had a perfect one night stay, I really wish it could have been longer. Within minutes of arriving we were enjoying the lounge chairs on the deck and watching whales spout in the distance. 24 hours at this cottage felt like we had spent a week on vacation.

The Sunset Cottage is a romantic oasis and perfect for a week-end getaway to leave the hustle and bustle of Silicon Valley. The view is spectacular and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean was wonderful. During our stay the weather was sunny and pleasant so it was great to sit on the patio to watch the sunset. Highly recommend. Valerie was also easy to communicate with and gave us clear instructions on everything we needed. Thank you Valerie!

Valerie's cottage was clean and comfortable. It has superb views of the ocean and is private. There is outdoor space where there's an option to barbecue or just sit around and watch/listen to the ocean. It's more convenient to go grocery shopping before arriving; the nearest store is about 15 minutes away. Valerie has a binder with all the details. Overall a relaxing experience and would recommend to friends.

This is a sweet little cottage in a very quiet neighborhood with a fabulous view of the beach/ocean. The beach was quiet, too, which made it seem "private" and access to it was on a paved path with many steps that were completely easy for this 70 year old body to handle. The cottage has everything needed for an enjoyable stay, including some surprising items left by prior visitors and meant to be shared by those that followed. Great bay views from the upper deck, too!

Our last stop on our honeymoon road trip up to SF. What a delight. Quiet, scenic... just what we needed after days on the road, and before the city. The accommodation is fantastic, clean and all that you need for your stay, plus Valerie is on hand if needed. Highly recommended. A hidden gem!

Wonderful cottage as shown on the picture, easy access to the beach. A little hard to find if you check in after sunset. Well stocked kitchen. Mattress is on the slightly firmer side for those that care.

Valerie User ProfileValerie is a superhost.

I am a nurse who loves enjoying meals and wine with good company. I'm a sucker for ambiance and engaging conversations. I also love traveling and being outdoors. When I find a spare moment (or weekend!), I can be found at the beach, the park, or in the mountains- hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, running, swimming, or reading.
