    We stayed in the Einstein Cottage for three night and enjoyed the town. The room was comfortable and cozy, and the hosts are all friendly. Thank you.

    The room was extremely comfy. There was even a small fireplace inside the room which made our stay just perfect. The location is 10 ins walk from the beach.

    More than comfortable, such a beautiful setting. Gorgeous room. Gardens and outside areas were really nice, This place is such a treat to stay at. Plenty of excellent coffee in the room, Fireplace made it comfy. Bed was as good as any we have slept on. GOOD mix of pillows, which is uncommon. Nice thoughtfully assembled breakfast (delivered, too!) Hostess went out of her way to meet and greet us and offer any assistance we needed. Our dog was very relaxed and content. He enjoyed it as much as we did :=)

    Zero complaints. A couple suggestions: Breakfast was delivered at 8:45 am, a little late for starting out on a full day. Outside lights were turned off early a.m. which made it very, very dark when I had to leave at 6:20 am (should leave a couple strategic lights on until full sunrise.).

    Charming cottage.

    There was a huge window with no covering and we couldn't sleep due to the light. The breakfast was far away and not that great.

    There was no real amenities on the property like a spa or fire pit however in fairness we knew that ahead of time.
