Oceanfront Blufftop Home with Incredible Deck & Water Views - Close to Beaches

Wake up to the sights and sounds of ocean waves at this 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!

Trying and failing to keep this hideaway a secret as I have never slept better in my life. A result of mornings spent on the deck, breathing in deep the new day, my daily walks along the bluff to the beach, soaking in the view with a good book and curling up by the fire at night. Love the time capsule vibe that forces you to escape.

Our first night there I found a mouse - I called the next morning to report it. When I woke up the mouse had gotten into my bread and granola and I found droppings on the counter top. They said someone would call me...they never did. They didn't offer us to stay at the main house either which appeared to be vacant. We spent 2 nights tip toeing around the house hoping not to see the mouse. Each night I could hear the mouse in the kitchen and in the cabinets. I woke up both mornings to droppings on the counter. I called three times, emailed pictures twice...and as of now...I'm only receiving $135 refund. I paid $900 to stay here. This is unacceptable.

We loved staying here. The midcentury architecture was phenomenal, though the place is a bit "worn", since everything appears to be original, other than appliances. The deck overlooking a stunning cove was amazing. We loved it!!

This is everything I needed for a getaway to rest and reset. Just spend days looking into the bluffs and the ocean - and listening to the waves hit the rocks. It was absolutely perfect. The house was cozy, everything mid-century one can dream. All appliances were quite new too - which was great!

We loved our stay and had a great time relaxing an unwinding for a weekend. The property is clean and the architecture is amazing, The views from the patio are one of a kind and we really appreciated the thoughtfulness of the host providing us binoculars to view the wildlife around us. The light switches took a while to figure out at first, but all in all we had a great time and we would definitely go back!

comfortable, stylish house with a great patio and view. we had no complaints, but note that the main house shares the same deck but they are some distance away.

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.
