This beach house is in a great location, walking distance to the high street with many boutiques and eateries. It is only two blocks from the local supermarket and strolling distance to the great beach. Alka is a great host- very communicative and gives great tips. This is a lo…

Alka is a wonderful host - communicative, organised and welcoming. My feeling is that compared to many of the other Air BnBs I have used, the price tag is too high for the quality of the rental. The cottage is in a fantastic location and perfect for the beautiful neighbourhood of…

Response from Alka:
Hi Claire, We include many photos of our space in our listing, each with a description. If you were looking for a headboard or a larger bathroom, you could have seen from the photos that our cottage doesn't include either. Compared to the other listings in Pacific Grove, which don't offer the modern decor ours does, we offer a less expensive stay ("budget" in your terms). Our town is very desirable so the rates tend to be higher, even, than other parts of the US. The window you refer to as "falling out of its frame" is actually an official "egress," which allows guests to leave the cottage in case of fire or other emergency.
