Excellent location and beautiful setting. Super quiet, private and serene environment. Nothing lacking. Romina was warm and super accommodating to our needs

Moonhill is an amazing and comfortable place in a prime location on Cortes. Romina is an amazing hostess who was so helpful as well as thoughtful. We will definitely return to Moonhill!

Jody

Wow! Romina’s place is a little slice of paradise! We had such a wonderful stay and found it so relaxing. She was so generous with her abundant garden; it was lovely to enjoy such fresh herbs and rhubarb. We were even able to bring a little home with us to enjoy in the coming days. We will definitely be back!

Rylie

A wonderful place to stay! Very clean house, thoughtful touches (such as a nightlight in the bathroom and lovely décor), easy access to space and all the amenities you will need. Very quiet, lovely location and a friendly host. Not to mention all the beautifully carved doors. Can’t wait to go again!

We had a lovely stay at Romina’s sweet cottage. It was the perfect retreat for my two daughters and I. I had never visited the island before and came up to pick up my girls who had been in camp there. The three of us stayed on at Romina’s and hunkered down feeling very much at home. Romina was the best hostess for what we needed. I highly recommend this cozy, serene and blissfully quiet place in the woods…excellent location for walking to town and a short drive or bike ride to some amazing waterfront.

Excellent location right in the heart of Mansons Landing on Cortes. Perfect quiet getaway

Romina was very friendly. The guesthouse is truly beautiful. Very spacious and love to detail!

Katharina

Walking distance to the co-op in a serene area with deer and owls. Used it as a mini writing retreat and cooked all the time, two things we were really looking forward to. The space was super clean and fun to be in. The place is split so you sleep upstairs where the bathroom is and then walk outside and downstairs for the kitchen and living area. Romina was really welcoming and we appreciated it was dog friendly!
