    4/19/13 Guest Review on VRBO page (#37172):
    This was our first visit to Tara cottage but it will definitely not be our last!
    Nestled into a peaceful corner of Coffee County, our host Michael has created an outdoor space that frames the breath-taking views of the ocean and coast with a magical landscape design. He has artistically integrated the paradise outdoors through the décor and floor plan of the cottage. Each corner of the cottage provides a new place for rejuvenation and reflection. The outdoor shower is heavenly and made private by beautiful bamboo, a sloping rock garden and strategically placed pottery. We loved it so much that we rarely left the property. Michael's own home is on the property but is not easily seen from the cottage and he is very respectful of his guests’ privacy.
    The magical accommodations and breath-taking views are an expression of Michael's aesthetic and of his generous personality. We were greeted by him and given a quick tour. To make us feel welcome, he made several floral arrangements for us using plants from the property as well as assembled an amazing welcome basket that included wonderful coffee from his farm, macadamia nuts grown nearby, home grown granola, fruit and more! Michael has anticipated and provided for his guests every need. The kitchen is well-equipped. There are lots of beach towels, chairs and coolers which are perfect for picnicking while visiting "Two-Step" for snorkeling or "The City of Refuge" which are a 10 minute drive from Tara cottage. Our 16 year old loved the excellent Wi-Fi!
    Tara is a magical place! We can't wait to go back!
