Response from the owner Thank you for review of our cottage. I am sorry to hear that you found the beds noisy and uncomfortable. We just bought a brand new mattress for the Queen bed this season! Based on your feedback, I just ordered a new bed frame to see if that helps. We really appreciate your feedback! And yes, the cottage is "ocean side" not "ocean front". Apologies if you felt mislead. Sincerely, Marbella Cottage

Response from the owner I am so pleased to hear you had such a wonderful stay! I take my 2 young children out to stay there too whenever I can (usually in the fall if it's not too busy). It is a magical and wondrous place for children and adults alike. We particularly love having a fire and marshmallow roast on the beach after nice BBQ supper. And my father, Randy, well you couldn't ask for any better. He is the best caretaker and goes above and beyond to ensure a great stay for guests! We hope to see you again! Thanks, Miranda McCarthy

Response from the owner We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We are very proud of our cottage. Even though we are not literally ocean front, we do have views of the ocean.
