The cottage was easy to find and a short distance to town. Clean and relaxing with beautiful flowers outside. Cottage just as pictured inside, and you could hear the ocean if sitting on the small porch, but would need to walk across the road to see it. Good weekend stay and base as we were out having adventures more than staying in. Thank you.

This home sits on a hill over looking the pacific , is quiet and spacious
That said it needs some appointments… more than 2 forks, smaller sauce pan and frying pan, muffin pan, darkening curtains on the bedroom so when the motion light goes off it does not shine in your eyes, and better placed stripping on the bathroom door so your hands don't come away sticky
Otherwise…We enjoyed the stay and home

The cottage was charming, comfortable, and conveniently supplied with all the basics. Loved the views from all the windows and the proximity to the ocean and to town. Hope to stay again soon.

Very nice cottage, comfortable bed, good location.
The code to get in didn't work so we had to call the info number to get a correct code.

This was a sweet and well stocked little cottage just across the street from the ocean and within an easy walk of town. It was the perfect quiet spot for a couples get away

This was a nice one room cottage for a get away to Mendocino. It was spacious and very clean. When you open the front door, you can look right out to the ocean, and you can also sit on the front porch and enjoy the view, fresh sea air, and sound of the waves.

This house is set up so nicely for two people to stay long-term. We will stay there again and again when possible. Convenient to shops, parks, walking, and resting.

This is a private, quiet, cozy cottage with comfortable furniture, tastefully decorated with pleasing artwork. Beautiful plantings and many birds. Do bring your own tissues, plastic wrap and extra paper towels. Cell reception was sporatic-- landline was available for calls. Go and enjoy.

Nice location to visit Mendocino and Fort Bragg. We enjoyed the ability to make our own meals and then walk just a few hundred feet to the ocean overlook. It is a very compact unit so you can't walk around the bed if the closet door is open and there is a full view of the toilet if the door isn't closed. We had difficulty getting our cell phones to connect, even with the WiFi connected. I hope they consider replacing the mattress soon. Overall we would still consider returning.
Manager response:
Thank you for providing feedback, Alan. We are glad this location suited you well. We appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention, and we'll be sure to check the internet for any issues and pass your suggestion to the owner for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

The cottage was spacious especially the kitchen. It was immaculate. Accessible to the bluffs and to town. We had some view of the ocean. The best was that we could hear it.

Very clean, and very quiet! Nice for a quiet getaway. The lighted walkway was convenient, as we arrived after sunset.

This gem is located across the street from the ocean. As you relax on the welcoming porch, you can hear the waves crashing. Very peaceful!
