  • Great house!


    Really enjoyed the space, amenities and cleanliness. The neighborhood is a little rundown but no problems of any kind. I highly recommend it.

    This was our first time staying in Payson and the Sunshine Cottage got the job done. We brought our dogs and it was dog friendly. The only downfall is that the neighbors have a dog who enjoys coming up to the fence and if you have dogs who don't like other dogs, you'll need to keep them on a leash in the yard as the fence in a chain link one. The inside of the house is great and very cozy. Everything worked and was amazing!

    The cottage is a cute renovated home with lots of convenience type amenities. House has a good sized fenced in yard for pets. Comfortable stay for a small family or couple.

    Everything was effortless. The property was ideal for our visit. Very nice "extras" with the rose petals, and supplies for smores. Thank you!
