Everything I’d read about this place was true. The views are fabulous and the cottage had its own little path down to a sheltered cove. I actually saw a sea otter climb out of the surf! The cottage was spotless and had a full kitchen, bathrobes, wifi, the works. The hosts were lovely and helpful in making dinner reservations . Overall, well worth the price!
