Mendocino Dunes - Dune Flower 33200 Beal Lane, Fort Bragg, CA 95437

The Dune Flower, one of four cabins in the Mendocino Coast Dunes Retreat complex, is a great place for a small group to stay, though it can also be rented together with the other three houses for a fun-filled group vacation! This cabin has a charming nautical theme, a private hot tub, a clean and comfortable design, and a dog-friendly attitude, so everyone will love it here!

Located about seven miles north of Fort Bragg, this home is just over half a mile from the sparkling ocean, though if you want easy beach access you may want to drive to MacKerricher State Park, because the walk from the cabin over the dunes is a bit hilly.

Up to four people are may stay in this one-bedroom, one-bathroom home which features a full-size bed in the bedroom and a comfortable fold-out futon. Feel free to bring your dogs to enjoy the vacation with you, though a nightly fee per dog and minimum fee per stay will apply.

With a delightful nautical theme, you will feel very welcome in the living area, which comes complete with cable TV, a DVD player, Internet access, and a cozy gas fireplace. A kitchenette has a hot plate and a mini fridge so you can whip up a snack easily.

In the grassy backyard area, privacy fencing will keep you separate from the other cabins. A nice deck area with seating and a firepit nearby is a great place to sit in the evening, telling stories, relaxing in the cool sea air, and roasting a few marshmallows on the fire.

This cabin would be a lovely place for a small family or a few friends to spend a nice vacation, though it would also be wonderful to rent all four cabins at the same time and invite all your loved ones! With the beach nearby, the beauty of nature surrounding you, and towns within a short drive away, you may never want to leave.

With a fun theme, this ship-shape cabin is a comfortable place to stay during your vacation!

    Close proximity to walk the the beach is great. Very quiet & peaceful. Would be great for those with small pet. We were 4, 2 adults & 2 kids. The small kitchen made it nice to have some breakfast food items not to have to run out early & the crockpot made it easy for us to have dinner in one night to relax. Beds are on the tiny side, but overall sleep was good.
    Highly recommend!

    Location and amenities were wonderful for our weekend stay I've read mixed reviews about the dunes and their accessibility I found that the accessibility was very easy and wonderful although we didn't make the full trip to the ocean from the Dune Trail I was confused on previous renters confusion on the distance and location of the dunes they seem to be quite accessible and the ocean was quite visible we would stay here again it was a beautiful comfortable home thank you for sharing with us

    This place needs a lot of TLC, especially in functioning appliances... there is no real kitchen, only the hot plate works, the bed is full sized, not a queen. The furniture is old (i.e., futon couch cover is torn in multiple places, stained and gritty chairs). The location is great, and the place is really cute, but really neglected.

    This is a cute little house for a small family of 3-4. It's on a quiet street with lots of room for kids and animals to run around outside. It says there is beach access from the property but, if you can access the beach from there, we're not sure how. We walked 20 minutes toward the beach and almost got lost in rolling sand dunes, 20 feet high, and still no closer to the beach. Don't let the sound of the waves in the distance fool you into thinking you can walk down there with your kids, drive a short way north to McKerricher State Beach instead. Beautiful spot. As for the house itself, it has most everything you need (although no regular oven or range) and is comfortable if a little rough around the edges. Wouldn't recommend it for more than one family because the usable space is essentially one room with a tight alcove with a curtain for a bedroom; not much room or privacy. A pleasant stay overall and an affordable option for the area.

    bring much bug spray for the mosqitoes, don't buy anything that needs to be frozen and mark your way from the trail to the beach so you can actually find it.

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Dune Flower. It's small, but totally fine for the two of us. The utensils and kitchen equipment is limited (mini-fridge, hot plate with two burners), but we had read about this and planned our meals accordingly. The location was quiet and convenient. A bit far out of Mendocino (25-30min), but close enough to Fort Bragg and any of the spots we wanted to be. We particularly enjoyed walking over the dunes to the beach in the morning and soaking in the hot tub under the stars at night. Thanks for the great getaway!

    This house is fantastic. Perfect for a weekend. It's small but has all the amenities you would need for a couple of days away. We had our 2 kids and our dog and we were very happy. The beach is right down the path. It's about a 10 min walk out to the water through the dunes. Some reviews say the dunes are a rough hike which they are not - our 4 yo had no issue getting out there. Should be noted dogs are not allowed on the beach which was a bummer when we saw the signs. It's about a 10 min drive back into Fort Bragg from where the house is. The hot tub, fire pit and bbq were perfect for a nice evening in. There's no stove but the hot plates work well for pasta/rice etc. The only issue we had was the master bed is a full. If you are tall (I'm 5'9" and husband is 6'3") it gets uncomfortable so my recommendation is removing the foot board. Other than that amazing spot :)

    This home was really cute and in a quiet, gorgeous location. If you are staying an extended amount of time, or you are bringing children, just be prepared for a small fridge, no freezer, and limited cooking ability (no stove, and two-burner hotplate.

    We came here for our one year wedding anniversary. Great spot. The place is out off a dirt road FYI! I fell in love with the area, weather, and guest book with entries back to 1991! The hike over the dunes is no joke - if you're out of shape, beware! The hot tub is off when you get there so turn it on first as it takes a long time to warm up. Also there is no freezer so fridge items only or bring a cooler. The decor is great and the place is so quiet and peaceful. Also there's no fenced in area for your dog so be careful :) we will be back!

    This cottage is adorable. Unfortunately though, many things in the cottage are broken: shower door; shower handle; one of the only two hotplate burners does not work; electric saucepan is broken. Kitchen door locks do not work properly. If they fix these things, the cottage will be perfect.

    We had a great weekend here, and the dog liked it too. Fort Bragg is lovely and this place is in a great location - not far from town but still quiet and private, with lovely trees, lots of birds singing, and the dunes just a short walk away (beach involves a longer walk). The hot tub is genuinely hot (not always the case with rented properties)... but I think the controls are locked up so if we wanted it cooler we had to run the noisy jets. Close to other rental and residential properties but private because of the way the buildings and yards are oriented. Some minor issues with the amenities (no teakettle; half-functional hot plate; no ice), but the place had that perfect "beach retreat" feel. Perfect for a nap on a misty afternoon. Guest book was one of the highlights for me -- something like 20 years' worth of visitors' comments, including some who returned several times. That took away some from the weirdly generic hotel feel that the plastic Vacasa signs lent to the place.

    I was very pleased with the house and the location. It was very clean and adorable. However, they don't mention that HALF the house (with the sliding glass door) is blocked off for "owners storage". I feel it's unfair you pay for the house and you only get half !

    This was a lovely little cabin for our family of four. We had the best time exploring the dunes on the adventurous hike out to the beach from the cabin. The yard space was lovely and perfect for the kids and the cabin was delightfully charming. We just wish there was a proper door on the bathroom for added privacy in a small place. The movie selection was so much fun to choose from and the fire pit outside provided lovely evenings under the stars. Thanks for a cozy stay!

    It states that this place is suited for 4, however the main bed is barely big enough for one person. I'm only 5'2" and weight 115 lbs and my husband is 5'10" and 210lbs....the futon is old and lumpy, our children ended up sleeping on the floor. Clearly this place is not suited for a family of four. I really expected more with the price being over $400 and with what you wrote about it....I should have just stayed in town at a hotel, would have been cleaner, with more room, and not irritated our families asthma. Not to mention the other properties surrounding us were so loud with the parties they were having. This was not an enjoyable visit and I will not be returning.

    I will start by saying there is a locked curtain door that leads to another room that accesses a loft above the living room. It says it is the owners storage. I was really put off by this. I kept wondering if someone was in there. Haha I tend to have a wild imagination. I wondered why no one had mentioned this in the reviews. I guess it would have been a game changer for me as I would not have rented this place. Although after the first night I was feeling more comfortable with the situation. Also the curtain door for the bathroom offered no privacy. With that being said I ended up really enjoying the place. It was a little quirky but peaceful. We ended up staying an extra night and the property manager was very nice and accommodating. Vacassa was very thorough with everything. It was a very easy process.

    We just needed to chill, and this cottage was perfect. We did a lot of cooking and watching shows together and walked the dog on the beach and found a great coffee shop downtown and had a great meal at Silver's at The Wharf. But mostly we stayed in and about the cottage, which is comfortable and well-equipped.

    The location was great, short walk to the dunes. House is very dated and used. The bathrooms and kitchen area....which are the two most important were not very clean. Make sure you wash any kitchen items before using. The deck was a sweet location but the deck furniture was nasty. Fortunately were were there for the activities and didn't spend much time at the house. Don't set food out....ants in the kitchen.

    I stayed with my mother, boyfriend, and two dogs in May and we all had a great time! If you plan to spend a lot of time in the house, it is a little crowded with more than two people, but we were out most of the time so it was no problem for us. There isn't an oven and the fridge is a mini-fridge but there is a two burner hot plate and the grill outside is great, if you plan on doing any cooking. The location is about 10 minutes north of Fort Bragg, which was great for us. Very quiet and peaceful. Very clean, plenty of towels and bedding. Would definitely stay here again!

    We loved it from the moment we pulled up. So clean, beautiful and inviting. We loved the fact that we could cook in the kitchen and still eat outside by the camp fire. Our kids had a blast being able to explore the trail leading to the beach. I would recommend this to other families. It is small and very cozy, but very comfortable. The bed is quite small for for someone that is over 6 ft tall like my husband but we made it work! It was definitely worth getting away to this cute cozy cottage nestled in the woods. It would be great for couples or families with kids!

    We very much needed a relaxing getaway and this house gave it to us. Great location, not that far from Fort Bragg. Very quiet and had a great area for me to play catch with my son.

    It may not be on the beach, but it is close enough for a good ocean feeling. We absolutely loved the interior decorations. It was a very fun place for us to spend a few days.

    The furnishings were lovely, and the whitewashed walls are very pretty. The location is wonderfully quiet, we could enjoy every bird call and since our home is in a very dog oriented (read: barking night and day) neighborhood, the silence was so restful.
    Loved walking the dunes and beach, could have really gotten in shape had we stayed a week instead of two nights.
