Geta's cottage is a wonderful place to stay. It is conveniently located, close to grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants, and several parks. Tucked away from the street in a lovely and well-tended garden, it is quiet and peaceful — a little sanctuary perfect for working or reading. Geta herself is a warm and responsive host. I would recommend the cottage to anyone (without kids) on a sabbatical. I would happily spend another sabbatical here.

The cottage at 1738 MLK Jr Way is a delight to live in. Surrounded by a lovely and peaceful garden, the cottage is brightly lit from skylights and large windows. It is in very good condition, well arranged, and has sufficient storage for even large suitcases. The appliances, especially the gas stove, are a pleasure to use. The brick walls keep it feeling cozy in the winter and cool in the summer. We highly recommend this place!
