Very clean and in a great location with a shared hot tub in the back woods next to a creek!

Beautiful, peaceful.

This is a nice little studio+ right off Hwy1 (but with a sheltered expansive front yard) and butted up against the woods. Hot tub is looking out over a creek into the woods. Pretty sweet. The kitchenette is small but functional (only room for one person at a time) and the walls to the other 2 rental-spaces are a tad thinner than I would hope… but we didn’t have any problems. I really like Gualala, too - one of the quieter towns along the Sonoma/Mendocino coast, but with plenty of food and market choices. I would definitely consider going back.

This apartment is a pleasure to look at. It is decorated really thoughtfully in good colors with lovely original paintings. The bed is really excellent, a lovely large king size with a great mattress and nice bedding. The apartment is small, but well thought-out and is very comfortable. The kitchen is fine, but doesn’t have a lot of cooking equipment. It was fine for us because we brought prepared food which only had to be re-heated. The only other issue was the wifi which was a bit spotty, but the website does warn visitors of this problem. The apartment was very clean and quiet and close to many oceanside hikes which were fantastic.

Please tell me the brand name of the bedding! I have to have it in my home. It was like sleeping in a cloud. The trees! The deck! The single item for impovement would be a coffee make. Other than that, this place was perfect. I would totally come back!

We found the suite comfortable and nicely appointed. It makes good use of its space including a well stocked kitchen. TV is excellent with huge selection of channels. Electronic fireplace is a nice touce. There are good hiking areas from the suite. Just walk across the road for a beautiful view of the ocean. Or, hike up the trail behind the suite for a panoramic view.
Due to covid restrictions the hot tub was closed.

We had a very action packed few days, which meant we literally only used our rental to sleep. And that bummed us out because it was very much set up to enjoy. The room was neat and clean. We had ample amounts of pots and pans to cook with. A beautiful back porch which screams “drink your coffee and wine out here” and a hot tub that I wish I had used. We will definitely be back!
