Remodeled oceanfront home w/ a hot tub, deck, beach access & incredible views!

Discover a stunningly remodeled oceanfront escape at this three-bedroom Fort Bragg home, an open and light-filled coastal getaway with a gourmet kitchen, an enviable location on Babcock Beach, and a private deck and hot tub with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean.

Perched just 50-feet above the sea stacks and sheltered ocean cove of Babcock Beach and 200-feet from the water, this landscaped, one-acre property sits on the northern edge of Hare Creek. You'll be only a quarter-mile from a gourmet supermarket, a half-mile from the Noyo Harbor seafood restaurants or fish mongers, and two miles south of shopping and dining in downtown Fort Bragg. The Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens is one-mile south, and it's just three miles south of the colorful shores of Glass Beach, with the Haul Trail extending north five miles to MacKerricher State Park.

Gated for privacy and recently remodeled, this single-level home offers an unrivaled oceanfront setting for quiet retreats on the Northern California Coast. Upon entering, you'll be greeted by brand new furnishings, open beam ceilings, and a wall of glass doors that frame the ocean, beach, and neighboring bluffs.

Choose a book to read on one of the plush sofas, gather around the coffee table with a board game, or set up your laptop and log into the WiFi in the cozy office nook. Set out some cheese, crackers, and a bottle of wine, and choose something fun to watch on cable, Apple TV, Netflix, HBO GO, Showtime, or Cinemax.

Open the glass doors to let in the crisp ocean breezes or stand outside on the expansive deck to watch for harbor seals and whales in the cove. Walk down the private stairs to collect shells and stones on Babcock Beach, light the gas grill for an evening barbecue, or treat yourself to a soothing soak in the ocean-facing hot tub.

Head indoors to prepare dinner in the gourmet kitchen, an open and social space elegantly outfitted with white cabinets, pristine modern appliances, and a blender, mixer, and slow cooker to make your meals all the more delicious. Sit down to eat at the gorgeous wood table for eight, brew a fresh pot of coffee, and watch the sunset on the deck as the dishwasher and washer/dryer handle the day's clean-up.

With three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, Bay View Beachfront will accommodate as many as six guests. The bedrooms - two of which offer ocean views and glass doors that open to the deck - feature a queen-size bed apiece. A queen-size sofabed in the living room provides additional sleeping space, and the two bathrooms have a tub/shower combo and a stall shower, respectively.

Whether you spend your days walking the cove at Babcock Beach or exploring the wonders of the Northern California Coast, this home will show you the endless beauty of Fort Bragg. Admire the treasures that fill the shores of Glass Beach, stop for a Red Seal Ale at North Coast Brewing in downtown Fort Bragg, hop on the Skunk Train for an old time ride through the woods, or stroll through 47 acres of incredible plant life at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens.

Hop in the car and head south for the day to breathe in the fresh ocean air at Point Cabrillo Light Station State Historic Park seven miles south. Or, keep going just two miles further to walk the charming streets of Mendocino, pop in and out of art galleries, and sit down for dinner at the legendary Cafe Beaujolais.

Come and experience the quiet majesty of the Northern California Coast - you'll never forget your stay at this Fort Bragg vacation home!

This house is a gem. Nicely updated, great open concept with big windows to catch that million dollar view. The beds are very comfy. The kitchen has all you need. Want to grill, there is a great bbq in the courtyard. The deck will be your favorite the be, even in the freezing winter wind! Below, the hot tub will relax you after a day of hiking or tide pooling. Amazing sunsets, wild life ( deer, birds...enjoy the binoculars provided) and if the rain gets you stuck in, you can always watch TV ( Netflix! Xfinity, Apple TV...), play board games, or play on the piano! Located near everything in Fort Bragg, minutes to Safeway...the perfect getaway.

Loved everything
Kate C. Nov 2018
Loved the open feeling of the home while still having privacy. Beautiful beach.
Greg G. Sep 2018
Great setup for two couples.

Proximity to markets, and activities.

Right on the beach.

Although the house and location were excellent and overall we enjoyed our stay, there were several problems that I didn't expect from such an expensive rental. (1) the lower rack of the dishwasher constantly came off its rail making it near useless, (2) none of the bed night-stands have a reading lamp, (3) there should be lamps throughout the house because ceiling lamps are not cozy, (4) the freezer leaked water on the floor for some reason, (5) the toeboard below the kitchen sink kept falling down, (6) the LED lights used throughout the house are "daylight" type rather "warm" and also flicker when dimmed, again making the lighting not cozy. At such a high price point, I would expect more attention to quality and maintenance.
Manager response:
We apologize for the nuisance of the dishwasher and wish we had been contacted so we could have assisted the guest. The fix was simple and taken care of. The owner prefers a minimalist feel in the home and so does not decorate with lamps. The freezer has been fixed, and the toe board is in the process of being repaired. Thank you!

Ocean view. Steps away from beach
Cindy H. Jun 2018
Loved the many windows facing the ocean close to town. had a clean house .
Hot tub was a little sandy and we had 5 different cars n didn’t care for only 2 white card keys to get thru gate ! That was very inconvienet someone would have to walk down n unlock gate to let them in ! Also only 2 bathrooms and we must say the awesome pictures of the house on the internet look way much bigger then it truly is! But all n all beautiful place to
stay !

This is a beautiful spot and a very comfortable home. The kitchen had everything we needed, close proximity to town and the market, and the bedrooms comfortable (although table lamps will help at night). Hot tub we great but strong chemical smells could be an issue for some. Access to beach was easy. The dual driveway gates may be an issue for some, but it’s pretty manageable. I’d happily return here.
Marie L. Apr 2018
I can't wait to return. The home is in an incredible location. It's like living on a private beach. I saw whales everyday! It's magical.
Judy T. Mar 2018
We had an amazing weekend. Whale were jumping out of the water as we looked out the back window. I only can say great things about this house. Opening and closing the gate to the house everytime is the only thing that sucked, but then again it was no big deal. Thanks for a great St Patties weekend.

Traci N. Jan 2018
This house made us feel like we brought our own home to the ocean. It was very comfortable, we enjoyed cooking in the kitchen, the hot tub and of course, the ocean. We plan to come back as often as possible.
Milad H. Jan 2018
Beautifully furnished interior with an amazing view. Great kitchen and living room to spend quality time together. The rental is definitely larger than it looks in the photos. And direct access to the beach from the back yard. Really enjoyed our stay here.
Philippe P. Dec 2017
Great views, quiet place, very nice beach and peaceful.
Diana W. Nov 2017
House was located near town, and even closer to the beach. It's a unbeatable combination! Will defiantly be coming back to this house.
Kim V. Oct 2017
Home had a great view of the ocean, dramatic for us Coloradans. Enjoyed the locale and easy access to the beach. Also enjoyed the feeling of being off the beaten path but close to restaurants.
Barbara P. Oct 2017
Loved the house, the location, the view, whale watching from our deck... the best!

I prefer not to do a review
Rhonda H. Sep 2017
The house was very exciting. Every modern convenience. Top of the line appliances and amenities. The house was big and bright. clean and secure.
Jonathan S. Sep 2017
We recently stayed here with another couple. The house was perfect sized for us. It was unusually hot on the coast that week, so when we arrived, the house was very hot, but once we opened up the windows and doors it quickly cooled down with the breeze off the coast. There isn't A/C, but there is a constant breeze, so you really don't need it.
The hot tub was a great addition and we enjoyed evenings listening to the waves. I think we all slept with out doors open to the patio to fall asleep to the waves crashing on the beach every night.
There is plenty in town and local to do, but we mostly just enjoyed the view. The beach is public, but if you are there on a downtime, it's mostly empty.
Overall, we greatly enjoyed the house and anticipate using it again next trip!

First time renting this place, but pretty sure it won't be the last. The view from the house was amazing, so nice to wake up to… and the private beach access is super cool. The beach and the cove is hard to access (or maybe find) for the general public, so it’s like having your own private beach all to yourself. Was looking at the other homes around the cove, and seemed like this house and maybe one other were the only houses with direct access (stairways) down to the beach. House itself was cool, had all the amenities you’d need. Loved all the sliding glass doors off the entire beach-facing wall. Large deck was cool, and hot tub was nice to have as well. It’s a little funky getting to the house, but once you get there the first time, it’s easy thereafter.

Highly recommend this house, although have reservations about doing so… cause maybe now it’ll be harder to book! ;)
Jennifer M. Jul 2017
Beautiful house. Great location with the beach access. Would definitely stay here again. Very comfortable house!
June B. Jul 2017
Loved it!!! Absolutely a dream.
Hilary F. Jul 2017
Lovely, well appointed home with stunning view and tasteful decor. Beautiful landscaping.
Rick C. Jun 2017
This home was a pleasure to say in as the remodel was done to perfection.
The proximity to the beach was the selling feature for us and it did not disappoint, super nice. Local tell us it is the best beach for miles in either direction.
Linda H. Jun 2017

Anna H. Apr 2017
Loved every part of our stay, the place is very clean, comfortable, and beautiful. The view and private beach access is amazing!
Peter S. Apr 2017
We had a great off season visit to the Bay View Avenue house! The house was fantastic and the hot tub was perfect. The views from the house are breathtaking and having direct access to a nearly private beach was fantastic! We saw lots of wildlife too. Would definately stay there again!
Daniel M. Apr 2017
The house is in very good condition and the security of location is great. Once you step through the house onto the back deck your breath is taken away the view is beautiful and leaving your sliding door open just a crack at night to hear the waves is simply amazing.
Heidi G. Mar 2017
This house was the perfect location! The house had everything you could need! Great private beach and great view from the house. Loved our stay here!
Christopher S. Mar 2017
My husband & I brought our family here for our yearly vacation. The beach access was superb! The deck & spa area was so much fun for everyone. Everything anyone could want was in the house, new everything! Unbelievable! Great job on remodel. Thanks, Chris & Gigi.
Autumn W. Feb 2017
This home was so beautiful and comfortable! The view from the house was spectacular and the beach access was so awesome! Loved sitting in the hot tub watching the ocean while the rain drops fell on us and cooled us. We will be back for sure!
