    Magnificent!

    This oceanfront vacation rental was magnificent . . . So warm and inviting. When
    entering the house for the first time, the doors were open to that
    beautiful view. A breathtaking first impression. We especially enjoyed
    feeding and watching all the wildlife that lives around the house.

    Our stay was fantastic!

    Absolutely delighted

    We spent two wonderful weeks in your Hulls Cove home and we want
    to convey our deepest appreciation for your warm, generous hospitality.
    We were absolutely delighted by the many comforts of your exceptional house
    and by your beautiful garden in the shores of the ocean, which is both
    tranquil and animated by the incredible procession of wild animals throughout the day and night.
    We had an absolutely magical time there...

    Beautiful property

    The pictures of this property do not lie. It is as beautiful as it looks. The location is terrific - quiet, secluded, yet close enough for a short drive to town. The owner is wonderful to deal with. - James D.M, California
