Guest Memories

Where our guests have come from

We’ve certainly been blessed to have had guests visit Loma Mar from all over the globe now. (Our first international guests were from Sweden ironically!)

We’ve had brides get dressed for their big day at The Cottage, birthday celebrations, gal & guy weekend getaways, wedding anniversaries, proposals, Easter, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Years festivities, reunions, honeymoons, celebrating someone’s memory, romantic weekend getaways, and of course family & friends coming together and sharing lots & lots of laughter. I know my grandparents are very proud that the memories continue at The Cottage like they always wanted. Here’s what some of our fabulous guests have had to say…..


Nothing was overlooked by the Blomquist’s putting this place together – from the landscaping to the hot tub, the deck, the kitchen – everything. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. Jennifer- Sacramento, CA

IT’S WONDERFUL! There wasn’t one thing we would have changed (and we’re picky!).
Christine- Sunnyvale, CA

We made the right decision to end our vacation here and just RELAX. We have rented many vacation homes over the years and this has to be the nicest we have ever stayed in. The landscaping around the house is a treasure– many different types of plants and flowers. I am an early riser and sat on the front deck in the mornings and listened to roosters crowing in the distance and watched a deer grazing in the grass next to the driveway. When we reluctantly left to go home, we were recharged. Patti- Winston-Salem, NC

The most wonderful experience we have ever had with a rental property. Although the pictures are beautiful, they do not fully represent the peace and tranquility you feel from the moment you walk through the gate. No detail has been overlooked in providing a comfortable, affordable, stress-free retreat. Ellen and Terri- Sacramento, CA

From the moment we entered the gates, we were greeted with little personalized details that showed the love and care from the owners. The house was very clean and fully stocked with an abundance of amenities. Thank you for providing us with such a beautiful haven for reflection! Nancy- San Jose, CA

I have never experienced the level of comfort from any other rental property. The location of the cottage was the perfect setting to show off the gorgeous redwoods, the ocean, and fantastic food California has to offer. Katherine- Menlo Park, CA

If you are looking to distress, this is the perfect getaway. We are very particular about our lodgings but fell in love with this cottage. But what makes it so special, are the details and care that the owners have put into making your stay memorable. Every time we turned around, a surprise awaited us. Serene- Burlingame, CA

We commonly rent vacation homes when we travel, from within California, to Hawaii, and all the way to Italy. We have to say, this has been one of the most positive experiences we’ve had. We would recommend this property to anyone who wants to have a memorable trip and experience, whether it be for good times with family & friends or a quiet relaxing time to rejuvenate the soul. Dule- San Francisco, CA

This was probably the best retreat/vacation I ever experienced. All I needed to do was sit in a chair and let the environment put me into a deep state of relaxation. Ellen- Belmont, CA

The darling cottage was so clean, well equipped and decorated! The landscaping was gorgeous. There aren’t many other places that provide the beautiful forest and ocean so close together and we loved it!!! Eunice- San Luis Obispo, CA

What an incredible place. Totally exceeded expectations. Every touch was personal and welcoming. So much so that I had to keep reminding myself that I didn’t actually know the owners. Erin- San Francisco, CA 

Hidden gem in Pescadero! Amy’s rental was the perfect place for my family… we visited the goat farm, Half Moon Bay, downtown Pescadero, the beach… stayed in the beautiful redwoods but only 5-10 minutes from the beach – the best of both worlds! Pam – Manteca, CA

I have stayed in a lot of VRBO places all around the US and the Caribbean and The Cottage experience was THE BEST! Amy goes above and beyond to accommodate her guests – she literally thinks of everything. Kimberly- San Francisco, CA

The cottage is lovely and well-appointed with everything you can think of. Amy was responsive to our requests and questions and was always pleasant and helpful. It was a perfect location for a get-together with old friends. We enjoyed the rockers on the deck, the hot tub, cooking in the well-appointed kitchen, grilling fresh fish outside, fires in the fire ring after supper, and fires in the living room fireplace on chilly evenings. I have particularly fond memories of reading a book in the hammock under the redwoods… Martha- Honolulu, HI

Adorable, neat as a pin, wonderful attention to detail and well-appointed. The term “gracious living” comes to mind. We loved our stay here and really appreciated how great the kitchen was. Everything we reached for (utensils, waffle maker, griddle, cutlery) was there, and the little notes and descriptions were a highlight. Betsy- Silver Springs, MD

The Cottage exceeded our expectations! As soon as we walked in, we fell in love. It is bright, clean, and comfortable. The Cottage has so many personal touches to make you feel pampered. They thought of everything and didn’t cut any corners on this place. Kelli- Cedar Park, TX
