Ocean and hillside views, large patio w/grill, short walk to Sunset Beach!
Enjoy the peace and quiet you’ve been longing for at this inviting ocean view house! The large and cozy back porch provides plenty of seating and is the perfect spot to kick back, relax and take in the hillside views. The large backyard is perfect for a volleyball or badminton game if guests bring their own net and ball. Gather in the living room area with your group and spend the afternoon eating snacks and playing board games. The fully-equipped kitchen and the dining area with enough seating for everyone are ideal to enjoy a tasty meal together before heading out to explore the large patio and surrounding area. Take a 5 minute walk to private Sunset Beach to revel in the beautiful rock formations. Bring a kite to fly, hunt for shells and sand dollars, build a fort out of driftwood, or just enjoy the stunning scenery of the Northern California Coast.
What’s nearby: Just a five minute walk will take you to a private access gate and down the steps to Sunset Beach! Glass Beach is only eight and a half miles south and one of the most popular beaches nearby. It gets its name from the smooth colorful glass pieces that you can find there and that are illegal to remove! The Fort Bragg Coastal Trail is a 4.5 mile-long paved trail which offers incredible views of the ocean and is the perfect place to take a relaxing walk and enjoy the breeze. MacKerricher State Park offers plenty of outdoor activities including hiking, biking, and horseback riding, with facilities available for overnight camping. You can even book an excursion for coastal whale watching! North Coast Brewery is a renowned award-winning brewery and a local favorite you must visit.

The property is located on a quiet away from town. Which I wanted was to spend time together with grandkids and daughter. Close to the beach.

I love the calm colors of Dolphin Manor and the amenities. The big kitchen has lots of appliances, gadgets, serve ward and is easy to prepare meals in. The large back deck is awesome. Plus, the beach is a 3 minute walk away; the sound of the surf can be heard at the house. Lovely.

Walking distance to private beach, nice quiet neighborhood 10 minutes from town. If you are looking for a covid safe, relaxing trip, this is a good option. House was loaded/well equipped although dryer was broken. Tv option wasn't spectacular but who needs that when you are so close to the beach?
We appreciate you staying with us, Kristen. The dryer is currently out-of-order, but the parts are on order so we can repair it as quickly as possible. Thank you!

The house is nice, but dated.
Hi Kelly! We are happy you enjoyed the home! We will inform our local manager of your feedback for review and updates. We hope you allow us to host you again!

This was a clean, nicely decorated and close to the beach house. If you can't make it up the staircase from the private beach, just drive around the corner. It was perfect for us.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Dolphin Manor! The house is very well kept and very clean! Very easy and short walk to a private beach which was amazing with kids! Definitely would love to come back and stay again.

We rented this house for a small family get together to celebrate my moms 80th birthday and year and a half late due to the pandemic. Loved the patio out back. The house was well equipped and clean. The decor was early 80s but we liked it. I was like stepping back in time. Had an issue with the oven but they sent someone right away and got it working. Great customer service! Would definitely stay here again.

Was originally looking for a house on the beach, this one looked a little plain from the outside but what a pleasant surprise! It was very clean, very comfortable and a short walk to a great beach. The kitchen was well stocked,bedrooms were very clean and comfortable ( A nice touch to have soap and shampoo and conditioner in the showers) and a beautiful setting. If I had to find one thing to improve on it would be may be better Wi-Fi service but wouldn’t prevent me from going back. The house is very light inside and kept up very well. Loved that you could hear the ocean and have a partial view. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this wonderful House.

Enjoyed our stay. Everything was above average. I would stay here again.
Knocked it down a star due to TV, and Wifii were a little weak.
Thank you for staying with us, Douglas We are glad you enjoyed this home and we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. WiFi is provided, but please be aware that connection can sometimes be spotty due to this rental's remote location. We look forward to hosting you again!

We enjoyed our week at Dolphin Manor!! The house was very clean, well equipped and comfortable. It had everything we needed to make our adventure complete. We would definitely request this house next time we can escape to the beautiful Mendocino/Ft. Bragg coast, one of our favorite destinations. We felt covid safe and were able to find some of our favorite hikes and beaches that weren't crowded.

My family of 4 spent the week of Christmas 2020 at this home. We had a wonderful time! We loved the quietness of the place and the fact that a sandy beach is a 5 minute walk away! This house was built circa 1985 and other than the refrigerator (approx 10 years old) everything else is around 35 years old, but still works (just barely!).
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, Peter. We are delighted to hear that this lovely ocean view home provided for a great gathering place over the holidays. We hope you enjoyed both the charm and comfort of this well maintained home and we’re excited to report that the fridge, oven/cooktop, and dishwasher have all been updated. We hope you’ll return to enjoy these improvements!

We loved Dolphin Manor. This hidden gem came into our lives when our originally booked home had a water line issue. Vacasa came through with this property. Part of a tranquil neighborhood, walking distance to a peaceful residential beach with cool features like caves, a ton of driftwood, and river access. The house was super clean and comfortable and we loved the view of the cows across Highway 1 every evening. No complaints! Great Hosts!
