Dog-friendly, waterfront home w/ full kitchen & near the beach

Picture yourself at this cozy, dog-friendly cottage with spectacular views, just steps from Greenwood State Beach and cove. This rental is perfect for a romantic getaway where you can enjoy the majesty of the ocean out on the deck while you sip your favorite beverage, take in the amazing show of stars in the evening, or head inside and cozy up in front of the fireplace.

What's nearby:
Queenie's Roadhouse Café, with delicious coffee drinks and sumptuous fresh omelets, is a two-minute walk from the cottage, while the Elk Grocery and Deli next door has all the fixings to fill your picnic baskets. Take a short stroll over to Bridget Dolan's Pub and delight in the warm ambiance and excellent menu. Just 10 miles up the coast, enjoy dinner at Ledford House or the Albion River Inn, or continue north a few more miles to reach the picturesque community of Mendocino. With its quaint period inns, breathtaking views, and superb restaurants, Mendocino is bursting with artsy, unique shops for all. Visit the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens that overlook the ocean or explore the “secret” Glass Beach near Fort Bragg where the ground glistens with multicolored sea glass.

If you’re interested in hiking or doing some wine-tasting at the houses of nationally acclaimed local labels, travel east to walk among the expansive set of old redwoods at Hendy Woods State Parks, and then visit a host of famous vineyards and wineries - such as Navarro and Husch - nestled throughout the Tuscany-inspired Anderson Valley.

The views were amazing. Very relaxing and the cottage was cozy and comfortable.

I needed a getaway that was quiet, off the beaten path, and at the beach. This filled that need. The home was cozy, clean, well appointed, and close to the beach. Easy walk to get breakfast in town, easy to get to the park to get to the beach trail, even simpler to kick back on the deck and do nothing (which I did a lot of). The driveway was a little tricky, but we didn’t feel the need to go anywhere that required getting in the car. We’ve stayed all over the place up and down HWY 1, our goal this trip was a much needed, simple, quiet getaway. We brought everything we thought we’d need with us food/beverage wise, allowing us to just hang out and enjoy the view. And we did. This place is great, and we’ll be back!

A nice location and gorgeous view. However this house is not saying all that it should in the listing, so putting it here for you next folks to actually learn what you're getting.
This states 2 bedrooms, but 1 bedroom, the one with the gorgeous view has no door, only a curtain between it and the kitchen, and a pane-less window between it and the lounge (also just a curtain in that). And if that isn't enough for reduced privacy, the access to the bathroom is through the other bedroom.
Finally, it's worth noting that the deck is not a step off the house to the deck kind of enjoyment, but accessed via some stairs down the side of the house, so a wee bit less convenient. Outdoor seating is limited to 2 seats only.
I would not recommend this house for more than 2 people.

The location and the views are amazing, and the house was perfect for a couple or a small family. We loved walking down to the beach every day and having lunch on the deck overlooking gorgeous greenwood beach. And the absolutely cute town of Elk is just a few min stroll. While we very much enjoyed the stay, I do want to call attention to some aspects of the cleanliness of the house when we checked in. A lot of dishes and some kitchen surfaces were dirty, bed and pillows had hair on them etc. 
This was a bit disappointing given the current pandemic situation and our assumption that Vacasa would put in extra effort to clean the property thoroughly.
Apart from the above, we did have an excellent stay and would recommend the place as long as some of the cleaning issues are taken care of.

Manager response:
Gunaranjan, thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback! We sincerely apologize for the cleanliness issues you experienced during your stay. This is not the Vacasa standard and we appreciate you bringing this to our attention. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to get another chance to impress you in the future!

We were able to book this home last minute and it was perfect! 2 bedrooms, stocked kitchen and an amazing deck with beautiful views. Beach is practically private and a short walk down the path-great that this home is dog friendly too! Good to note the bathroom is en-suite with one of the bedrooms.

This a romantic get away if there ever was one. Wish I didn't have to waste time sleeping! Easy access to beach and nearby restaurants and hiking trails. It's an easy decision to return here for another stay.

This was a perfect small cottage for two people and two little dogs. The location couldn't be better, with a gorgeous view and an easy walk to the beach. The town of Elk is wonderful, unfortunately most of the town was closed during our stay (Christmas week), but this has nothing to do with the place. The store across the road was really nice and convenient, great beer and wine selection but no alcohol (in case you like bloody mary's), and there is a really cool art co-op in town. We also had a very good dinner at the Elk River Inn next door, and at the Albion River Inn just up the road. We look forward to returning when the pub and cafe are open and we can spend more time in Elk.

We stayed here for 3 days and it was a perfect place for us to detox and refresh. Views from the home are breathtaking. There are lots of restaurants and wineries within 20 mins driving.

The cottage has everything needed for a relaxing, stress-free stay. My husband and I had a great time, plenty of room for 2, loved the proximity to town and beach. The view from the front bedroom was amazin, and the deck was the perfect spot for watching beautiful sunsets. Can’t wait to come back!
