Cute cottage!
Ladybug Cottage is between the other two cottages, Butterfly and Hummingbird. It's quite small (studio size) but comfortable for 1-2 adults; a bit too snug to accommodate two additional people for more than a very short stay. I was very comfortable with my two dogs. The cottage is securely fenced and kept my companions safely within the property. The location was great! Just a few blocks from grocery shopping (Whole Foods, my favorite market), and on/off freeway access was very convenient; about a 10 minute drive to Arroyo Burro Beach (fantastic beach that allows dogs on/off leash) and the same to downtown State Street. If I could make a few suggestions to improve guests' experiences, I'd recommend replacing the patio umbrella since it was broken and the patio gets a fair amount of sun during the day, and I'd suggest updating the kitchenette refrigerator because it was not in very good condition. It was rusty inside and tended to freeze my food, even though it wasn't set very high. Also the tv remote didn't work and neither did the DVD player. If I were to return, I'd probably request one of the other cottages because of their additional space, but the Ladybug Cottage was a good value for me.
