What a great place to relax and unwind! Whether from life in general or the daily work grind, Pacific Peace provides a break from it all. We started our days with a sunrise view of the Pacific from our cottage bedroom and from the hot tub just outside our door. We wrapped up our days listening to the waterfall in the koi pond within steps of the hot tub. Wonderfully appointed kitchen, soft fresh linens and space to spread out allowed us to enjoy lazy mornings with coffee and robes while staying connected with the modern conveniences. We were able to blend work with pleasure from this beautiful light-filled cottage. We will be back!
