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. :-)

What a fabulous stay and that view!!!! You could lose a whole weekend watching the waves, basking in the sun on that deck. Host were easy to deal, gave good instructions and responded quickly when communicating. We rent just the master room and living areas. We found the Bach easily, it was well set up for cooking and entertaining if a larger group. The only thing missing was steak knives, but definitely more set up than most other places with kitchen equipment. Immaculate clean, comfy bed and good AC for hot afternoons (plus fire if need when colder). Great deck and outdoor seating. We will definitely visit again. Lots of walks to explore near by. The beach in front is beautiful black sand, with shallow shelf, so not as rough as many west coast spots. There is also a neat inlet (on the road down to the beach) which would be a great safe swimming hole, if we’d taken our 6 year old on this trip she would have been in for a dip, so picturesque. Thank you
Response from Owner
So pleased that you both had a wonderful and relaxing stay Esther. Thanks for your kind words and the additional comments, which will give others an insight in to the many wonderful things to see and do nearby. Steak knives are a good idea - we might invest in a set!
What a wonderful house for a perfect getaway, we are so happy we got to spend our Christmas time at this lovely property! The location is great - very close to Westport for any supplies and only a short scenic drive away from many walks and attractions in the area. The views from the house are truly beautiful, you can just seat on the deck and enjoy the harmony of nature around you, so peaceful. And everything in the house is very nice too - high quality amenities, comfy beds, stylish and cosy at the same time. Thank you very much to the Owner for making our stay at this lovely house so enjoyable and memorable, everything was perfect and we are looking forward to come again in the future!
