Loved the flowers, wine and taffy, best visit yet. Great weather, minimal crowds, and of course, the Shadowbrook. An awesome place to stay.

Marilyn and Joe are the best, we needed a nice quiet beach home to entertain clients before a Cisco event in San Jose. Marilyn and Joe have the perfect house in a quite but accessible area. We were able to enjoy the beach and entertainment within walking distance. The Berg's allowed us tho ship Omaha Steaks to their home and we picked them up on our way to the beach. Marilyn let one of our clients to pick oranges right out of her yard. The weekend was magical. Oh yeah, business is good!

Thanks Marilyn and Joe! We will return.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway
