Dog-friendly, waterfront home w/ amazing views, private hot tub, & beach access

Find yourself on five private acres of beachfront beauty complete with an ocean-facing hot tub. Relax in the large living room and take in the panoramic view, and then enjoy a movie or favorite show on the large, flatscreen TV. Or just spend your days and evenings entertaining friends and family while grilling out in the yard.

What's nearby:
The Old Haul Road is a popular trail used for biking, walking, and even horseback riding. The beach offers the best of both worlds: to the left, an easy walk to the surf and sand, while off to the right of the property, you'll find a small, easy to maneuver cliff which takes you to the rocky beach where there are tide pools teeming with sea life and large rocks for scaling. Just two-and-a-half miles south, visit Glass Beach, while the Mendocino Botanical Garden can be found a little over five miles away.

Great home. Access to beach, nice view. Right on the haul road. Beds were comfortable.
Tom and Amber A. Mar 2022
We loved everything about this house! Situated at the end of a private road, the backyard looks toward the ocean and has the best view. The home’s colors and decor were cheery, and the bed and bedding were so comfortable. If you’re looking for a vacation getaway on the beach where you’d never have to leave for days, this is it! Thank you!!!

Great spot right next to the beach with lots of privacy. Comfortable beds and amazing laundry setup.
Signe G. Nov 2021
The family so needed to get together after a long year. We lost two parents this year and being together to celebrate them was awesome. We enjoyed waking up to the smell of the beach and being able to enjoy each others company. Thanks you so much to the hosts for their hospitality.

Love this house, was our familes 2nd stay at Stella, so comfortable, huge ocean views, tons of beach access
Deanna B. Sep 2021
We enjoyed our stay at this house. The view was incredible and the hot tub was superb. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars is the need for the house to have a deep cleaning. It wasn’t as clean as it should be. There was hair in the 2nd floor shower and left over food bits on the floor that my dog was pulling out from under the cabinets/ stove in the kitchen. ☹️ Also, you might want to check out the downstairs shower. It isn’t draining like it should. Other then that, we would definitely recommend people staying here. We had a wonderful time.
Manager response:

We hope to have the opportunity to better impress you in the future with a much more enjoyable stay!

Loved the isolated location and access to many different beaches and tide pools.
Marilee D. Jun 2021
This location is the best! Inside house, looking SW waves can be seen crashing onto rocks and sandy beach, W, NW sun sparkling off the ocean waves and horizon. Short sand path to Haul Road, easy enough for 90 year old mom too walk and great for 2-65 year olds to walk, ride bikes, explore Mackkericher State Park. Directly across Haul Road, beaches with rocks and tide pools for hours of exploring, also sandy beaches. Sunsets may be viewed from house or hot tub, upstairs balcony or deck (if the fog doesn't settle in before sunset). I would give 10 stars for location. I give the home 4 stars. Only two of the beds have privacy. The others are in the living room (fold downs) and in the upstairs loft (kings), so not very quiet or dark for the early-to-bed bunch. The loft is cute but a real "head knocker" and the two king beds are fairly close together. The child's bed in the tiny room was a kid pleaser, especially for the little girls. The kids loved it up in the loft, their parents, not so much. There is a bath upstairs, too. The two private rooms downstairs are nice and quiet, but can't be fully darkened during the day for napping little ones. Great laundry facility w/ two washers and dryers. A well stocked kitchen. We prepared most our meals there. Plenty of room for dining for our 12 with two tables and four seats at the counter. Kitchen dining area wasn't too spacious but big enough and you could sit in the dining room and enjoy beautiful ocean views. Absolutely, the most relaxing three days I've had in years. Enjoyed by all the family from Great Grandma down to babies. We gave it four stars mostly because lack of private sleeping areas, but there were a few condition issues on the deck, also. The dishwasher needs two wheels on the bottom left rack, making it a bit difficult to close and open. All in all, very clean, uncluttered, fresh and homey!
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your generous review with us, Marilee. We are overjoyed to hear that the location and home were enjoyed by family members of all ages during your stay. Your feedback regarding the lack of private sleeping areas and space for a larger group has been shared with the local management and is greatly appreciated. In response to your concerns about the condition of the dishwasher, we have scheduled maintenance to install the two missing wheels on the bottom left rack for better ease with opening and closing the appliance moving forward. Lastly, we will work with the homeowner to assess the condition of the deck and make any necessary repairs. Thank you once again for staying in a Vacasa home, and we hope to host you in the near future!
Sam R. Mar 2021
This is a big lovely house with a huge yard. About 150 yards to tidepools and about a 2 minutes walk to a huge sandy beach where the kids loved to play.
Kim L. Mar 2021
We had a wonderful stay - house is well equipped. Great views and close to beach. Would stay again!!
Danyelle M. Dec 2020
I love that it has everything you need to have A comfortable stay. It even had a crockpot for our Christmas ham. I would give it a 10 star if I cook.
Gary S. Nov 2020
This home is beautiful and a perfect place for a family vacation. Breath taking view of the ocean. Decor was lovely and welcoming. The hot tub was a real plus given a couple days were on the chilly side. Vacasa staff were quick to respond to an issue with the hot tub lock. The only down side is that conversations and sound can be heard everywhere in the house. The house comfortably fit our family and everyone including our 4 and 6 year old grandchildren. Short walk to the beach and tide pools. Amazing sun rises and sun sets. Because of the large number of windows, star gazing from bed is possible. We loved it.
Suzy O. Nov 2020
This trip was a magical one with the family! With a beautiful view and home, it was just what our family needed to recharge. We will be back again for sure and highly recommend!! Thank you to the family for sharing this wonderful home with us!
Janet T. Sep 2020
The house was exactly as stated. The proximity to the beach/ocean was great, kitchen was nice, plenty of towels...everything needed was provided. Only 6 of our party of 10 showed up, so we had plenty of room, but it’d still work with 10 (a little bathroom sharing/waiting but it’d work). Loved the fire pit; perfect weather for roasting s’mores! I would consider renting this one again!
Linda S. Sep 2020
The home is beautiful, obviously loved by the owners. It does not feel or look like a rental. Sleeping for a large group, private gated entry, no neighbors with views of the ocean.
Jana B. Sep 2020
This is our 4th time staying at Stella and I have to say we fall in love with it more and more each time. The location and amenities are beyond compare!
Hiedi H. Aug 2020
This house was the perfect choice for our weekend getaway from the heat. Just a couple miles north of Fort Bragg, so still close enough to town, but very private. The grounds are immaculate, the back yard is huge and overlooks the walking/bike path as well as the ocean. There are several trails you can take to get to the beach. You can hear the waves break, from the house but it’s not overwhelming. Our dog was able to play for hours in the yard while we sat on the deck and enjoyed the view. The house itself is gorgeous. Almost anything you need is provided. Very nicely decorated and we felt very much at home. We will be back!
Vern M. Jul 2020
Nice secluded home with great views of the ocean. Home was great also. Thanks D___.
David K. Jan 2020
Just finished a week at Stella Del Mare. The family loved it. The kids loved the separation the loft gave them. Everyone loved the hot tub. The dog loved the huge yard. Great location close to town, beach, trails, tide-pools, surf. Cute house, we would definitely return.

Great location and property
Dusti M. Oct 2019
I stayed here with my sisters and our families. My nephew was getting married in Fort Bragg and we were all coming from out of town. Total of 6 adults, 2 kids/teenagers and 2 toddlers. It was perfect. Very spacious, with a good separation of space so we didn't feel like we were on top of one another. There were 3 cribs so we didn't have to bring pack n plays....though they ended up sleeping in bed with us which was just fine given the king sized beds. House was very clean and had everything we needed, lot's of towels for the shower and hot tub, plenty of blankets and bedding for all the beds including the cribs. My only wish is that we could've stayed longer to enjoy the house more and explore the surrounding area.
Laura A. Oct 2019
This is a lovely home in the perfect location. My family of 5 (3 young boys and mom and dad) found this home to be clean, comfortable and meet every need.
A note - the multi use trail is between the property and the beach and we wish we had brought our bikes - next time!!!!
Brittany B. Sep 2019
This home was perfect for our girls trip. From the short stroll to the beach or the hot tub and fire, this house has it all. Our only issue was we couldn’t find any trash bags and they don’t have cooking oils or spices, so make sure to bring your own. 100% recommend.
Manager response:
We are so happy you found this home to be perfect for your girls trip! We are sorry there were no trash bags in the home. We provide a starter supply of paper towels, toilet paper, garbage bags, etc. and after that, we ask that our guests provide their own, so there should have been one or two extras when you arrived. We do not supply and spices, cooking oils, or food products in our homes. Thank you for your feedback, and we hope to host you next time you're in Fort Bragg!
Samantha S. Jun 2019
We do an annual fort bragg trip with the whole family, and stayed at stella del mar for the first time this year. We loved everything about this property! It is perfect for a family getaway, and is even dog friendly! The loft area is huge and sleeps more than I thought. Pictures don't do this house justice. We will be staying here again. Thank you for the great time!
Neil O. Nov 2018
Fabulous property with views of the ocean, whales and sunsets. And a wonderful rain storm. Perfect setting for a family get-together. The Orchards
Alisa J. Oct 2018
We LOVE staying here. The home offers great location, privacy, easy access to town, beach and bike trail. We will continue coming to this location.
Kathleen L. Oct 2018
We got to share our stay with family and friends at Stella De Mare. It was truly an amazing experience with a 24/7 ocean view and beautiful starry nights. We even had many flocks of geese visit us during our stay as well as a majestic buck. The house was beautifully decorated and we had everything we needed. Dani was also an absolute pleasure to work with. We will definitely visit again!
