Oceanfront, blufftop home w/ incredible deck & water views - close to beaches!

Wake up to the sights and sounds of ocean waves at this one-bedroom plus loft Elk home, a breathtaking oceanfront retreat with beautiful mid-century style, a gorgeous deck that overlooks the water, and stunning sunset views of Greenwood Cove and the surrounding cliffs.

This home is half of a duplex that sits atop the bluffs in Elk, an oceanfront community on a particularly beautiful stretch of Highway 1. Stop for breakfast at Queenie's Roadhouse Cafe on your way to Greenwood State Beach each morning, take scenic drives to Mendocino (16 miles north) and Point Arena (19 miles south), and end each evening with a sunset cocktail on your ocean-facing deck.

Whether you choose to spend your days reading by the fireplace (wood is provided), sharing photos on the free WiFi, or dining outside on the deck, you'll feel right at home in this elegant space. Prepare breakfast in the mod-style kitchen, soak in a few rays of sun in a lounge chair on the deck, and choose a Netflix favorite to watch with your loved ones each night. Please note that the adjacent, two-bedroom main house is available for rent as well (the two homes are connected via the garages), and that both units can be rented together as the four-bedroom Mid-Century Elk.

You'll never forget the time you spend in Elk - book today! A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

An extraordinary view, lovely light, charmingly eccentric house and easy access to the natural wonders and wine of the Coastal area around. Perfect for a relaxing few days off the grid. Please note no internet!

Wonderful home with unparalleled views! Could use a few more simple kitchen items (spent 20 minute searching for something to stir the pasta with.. :) and the TV instructions were very detailed but it still didn't work (we think one remote was missing?) But small complaints for how peaceful our vacation was...
Manager response:
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, Karen! We will review our in-home instructions for clarity and accuracy in addition to ensuring the kitchen items are supplied as outlined in our check-in details. We look forward to hosting you again in the future!

The cabin is spacious and comfortable
The deck is huge and the view is truly epic!
Beds are comfortable
Hosts are approachable and helpful
The only things that could have been better were that the TV didn’t work at all throughout our stay and there is some road noise as the cabin is right on the road. Also the cabin can make some creepy creaking sounds, especially when the heating is on. But you get used to that!! We would recommend this place for sure.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Kate! This home was built with wood in the 60s and definitely makes some creaking noises, but it is all part of it's cozy charm. We checked the TV and found it to be working and do suggest guests use the provided directions. We hope to see you again!

Great view from the deck, which is well covered from most wind. Sunny mid day. King bed, a little on the harder side, but nice bedding. Well stocked kitchen with wine glasses and pans - we needed our own lighter for the grill though. Good house for a newborn or older kids, but the deck could be dangerous for toddlers crawling around.

We love everything in this trip.

We rented the guest house of the Mid Century modern over New Years. The location is unbeatable! The back deck overlooked the ocean and several rock cliffs, you can hear the waves at night, and there's relatively little environmental light so the stars shine bright. The house itself is beautiful - lots of original woodwork.
