Aaron and Rose
This is an awesome place. A well-appointed home in a wonderfully isolated spot with a great outlook. Better than the pictures. David was great to deal with, especially with the 1 in 100-year storm on the weekend of our stay. We would love to stay again.
Response from Owner
Thanks for your kind words Aaron and Rose. It was great to know you were safe and warm during the storm and hopefully you will be able to visit again soon to enjoy the splendor of the West Coast in better weather!
Melissa Barker
Superb home away from home. It rained for our stay but no complaints from us as the large windows made it possible to soak up the view and bird life from the warmth of the indoors, or if you prefer to be outside the large balcony with outdoor heaters is a real treat. We can’t thank you enough for the fabulous property.
Response from Owner
Thanks Melissa for your lovely comments. We're so pleased you both enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back to Ocean View Retreat if you have the opportunity to visit the West Coast again some time!
Jude Ahearn
Breath taking views, a beautifully designed home that is well equipped with modern comfortable furnishings. Ocean View is a property that radiates warmth and I can highly recommend it to other. We spent 3 nights and could have easily stayed 5. Perfect so many thanks to David for your great communication and to Valerie for our warm West Coast welcome.
Response from Owner
Hi Jude, thanks for your lovely comments and I'm so pleased you had a wonderful time. Three nights goes by so quickly doesn't it! Thanks for staying and feel free to book again anytime. :-)
