Mendocino bungalow description

Driftwood Bungalow - approximately 15 private acres on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. Dramatic views of waves crashing over rocks, see the tide ebb and flow, marvel at the sunset - all from your cozy living room and deck.

Every room was created with attention paid to detail...and a few quirky surprises...fish lights, murals on walls.....

Living Room opens onto the deck. Enjoy views of the ocean as you have your breakfast, play a game of monopoly or do a jigsaw puzzle while listening to sounds of the surf. Comfortable loveseat and chairs in the living room on one end and on the other there is a cream colored table with vibrant red leather chairs and a wonderful ocean view.

Open the french doors and walk out to admire the breathtaking view. Watch pelicans diving for fish, seals frolic in the surf and whales as they migrate. Sit and enjoy lunch on the deck picnic table or read a book in a comfy mesh chair with your feet propped up as you feel your cares slip away while the ocean breeze caresses your face.

In the family room you will find a huge sectional sofa and a 32 inch LCD TV for watching movies; DVD and VCR viewing only, no cable. There is a selection of movies or bring your family favorites. (Sectional is also a full-sized hide-a-bed.)

Master Bedroom has a Queen Bed outfitted with cozy flannel sheets. Pretty blues, pale teal, and rich chocolate brown highlight the master bedroom. Wonderful ocean-themed pictures and decorations complete the decor. Open your window at night and listen to the sounds of the ocean.

Second bedroom has a fun Surfing Theme with two twin beds. Flannel sheets and colorful Pottery Barn Quilts add to your comfort. Great room for the young...or young at heart!

The kitchen is fully equipped and ready for you. Dishwasher, Toaster, griddle, blender, coffee maker, microwave, utensils, waffle iron, gadgets galore and plenty of dishes/glassware for your use. Enjoy a view of the Point Arena Lighthouse from the dining table.

Two gas powered fireplaces warm your nights with the flick of a switch. Grab a cozy afghan, pick a spot and settle in to read the novel you've been meaning to! We have a lending library for your pleasure, sometimes one book just isn't enough!

Fenced yard off the deck, great for child and pet safety. Tuggy Tugboat Sandbox and sand toys for the tykes to enjoy.

                        The view is incredible. The bungalow is much larger than expected and very clean. It is also well furnished and very comfortable. The hot tub on the deck overlooking the ocean was amazing. The owner is a pleasure to deal with. We will definitely be back.

                        Driftwood has an incredible ocean view with a private path down to Manchester beach. It is very clean and tidy with a fully equipped kitchen. We stayed 4 nights. I BBQed salmon one night, chicken one night and we made pizza another night. The weather was perfect so we drove 40 minutes to Big River and rented a canoe at Catch a Canoe(they had one that was dog friendly so my German Shepherd went on her first canoe trip!). Since we were there we ended up eating at Ravens at Stanford Inn since they allow dogs!!!! We were sort of wet and cold-looking but the staff at Stanford Inn were really nice! Doug is amazing and very easy to contact. He responds to e-mails very quickly and really wants you to enjoy your stay. The movie collection is extensive! The Hot Tub very inviting. You could not expect better accommodations. From the many nearby hiking trails we watched numerous whales spouting and breaching- especially visible from the newly opened Stornetta Public Lands. And of course we ate pastries for breakfast one morning from Franny's Cup and Saucer in Point Arena. Good thing it is only opened Wednesdays through Saturdays! Part of me wishes I'd gotten more peanut butter with jelly cookies "To go". Driftwood Bungalow is a perfect place to unwind and enjoy life! We will be back!!

                        My family spent our very first family vacation at Driftwood and it could not have been more perfect! The view over the Pacific Ocean is incredible. There's nothing like it on the East Coast. My husband and I would sip our morning coffee gazing at the endless ocean view. Our daughter was about 18 months old, and she loved playing outside on the play set and in the sandbox. We walked down to the beach a lot, and took several little excursions to the different little towns nearby. And, the hot tub! I wish we could have stayed for a month. We'll definitely be back.

                        The owner is a gracious & generous host with a lovely vacation home. We had all we needed except a clear day. We felt so welcome in the little towns & came back each night to our cozy cottage. Plus, our canine kids loved their getaway as much as we did! We'd love to return when it's not so foggy (be careful driving at night on the roads!) to see even more of the Mendocino coast. Thank you for helping make my parents' 50th anniversary so memorable.

                        We visited Driftwood Bungalow for the first time in 2012 and started counting the days until we returned this year. It is by far the most wonderfully relaxing get-away that we've ever had. Our two girls (our labs "Marley and Lola") thoroughly enjoyed the walks to and from and on the beach!!! We walked the beach every day for a couple of hours and watched as they discovered something new along the way. The path down to the beach is perfect and having the hose in the side yard made it easy to shampoo them once we got back. Then it was time for them to run the perimeter in the fenced in yard as we enjoyed a relaxing glass of wine in the hot tub. Can't even tell you how different that is from our everyday life. We sat there and it resonated with us “this is the life”. We appreciated the well-stocked movie and game selection and honestly, we did not miss the TV what so ever!!! We were lucky enough to have some fantastic weather but fog or not, we are so greatly to be able to steal away to this goldmine, to be able to unplug and enjoy one another. The home is immaculate and you really don’t “want” for anything. If it’s not there or if you have a question, you can rely on Rose. And no worries, you have your privacy and never see her. We loved the newly added furniture for the patio – excellent additions! We are again looking forward and trying to plan our next visit ? Many thanks to Doug for everything!!

                        This was amazing place to stay. Very clean. We stayed for 7 nights. The view was awesome and the path to the beach was very well maintained and a easy walk. Going over the driftwood was not hard to climb to get to the beach. Rose the caregiver of driftwood was very nice and helpful. She does a awesome job taking care of this place and the garden/yard. Thank u Doug for renting ur place out for people to enjoy. Doug is very easy to get a hold of by email and responses quickly. Very relaxing no worries. Steven and Teri Olsgard.

                        The experience of staying at the Driftwood Bungalow was wonderful in every way, start to finish. I would give it more stars if I could! First off, coordinating with the owner is a pleasure. He is VERY responsive via email -- before, during, and after our stay. He really seems to enjoy renting out his property and making sure that people have a wonderful time. When he returned my deposit check, he even included a handwritten note thanking us for staying. It didn't just seem like an "all business" transaction. This left me with a really positive impression throughout the experience. Second, the bungalow itself is absolutely incredible. We stayed for 3 nights -- 4 adults and 2 small dogs. It was cozy, comfortable, warm, and beyond relaxing. The beds were comfortable, with good quality linens. Everything was clean (the lady who takes care of the place, Rose, does a wonderful job). The home was well equipped with everything we needed, including an extensive DVD library and puzzles. The hot tub was perfect. The bbq was great (there were even charcoals and lighter fluid -- we left our own charcoals there to replenish the supply for the next vacationers). There were cozy blankets on the couches for us to cuddle up in. The gas fireplaces were warm and very romantic. The dogs loved the dog beds and toys. And I am very grateful that the fence was very carefully constructed so that there were no gaps, so my two dogs could enjoy the back yard. Last, the LOCATION was absolutely unbeatable!!!! The trail down to the beach was VERY easy to walk on (no clambering up slippery cliffs or rocks). The view is STUNNING. When you walk to the private outlooks, you see pristine beaches as far as the eye can see. Every day we had our own private sunset. Every day we walked down to the water and walked up and down the beach for hours. Some days were misty and windy, and others were warm and sunny (the weather there is quite mercurial), but every day was unforgettable and extremely relaxing. At most there were only a handful of people on the beach at any given time. The driftwood on the beach was gorgeous, and the beach is a sand beach -- not rocky as is common with so much of the California coastline. The four of us and our dogs had an absolutely unforgettable time. We had grand plans to explore Mendocino and in the end we dragged ourselves away from the bungalow ONCE. All of our troubles and stresses melted away there. Thank you for an amazing stay!!

                        Four nights at the Driftwood: too few, but so wonderful. Everything you need for the perfect vacation is right here. Got Dogs? This is the place to bring 'em. The Driftwood is cozy, clean, comfortable, with a fantastic view of the ocean. You won't feel nervous being in someone else's house, because the bungalow is so friendly and homey. Your dogs will love the fenced backyard, the beautiful walk to the ocean, the miles of beach. We saw a pod of whales, sea lions followed our progress as we walked through the sand, pelicans flew overhead. There are deer and bunnies who are in residence, and lots of birds. There's no tv (yay!!!) but there is a dvd/video cassette player, and the wifi is strong enough to stream. If the sun is out, you can lounge outside or in the back sun room, or walk to the beach. If it's overcast, the beach is still inviting. If it's windy, the back room is perfect for reading and catching up on your ZZZZZ's. If you want a great breakfast or lunch, visit Queenies in Elk.....THE best breakfasts. You can even get pizza at the wharf in Pt. Arena. 10 Stars!!!

                        Spent a wonderful Memorial Day weekend at the Driftwood. The house was very well appointed and super clean. The kids loved the movie collection, games, and tether ball. Our dog loved the large yard, dog bed and dog toys that were provided. hot tub and the views were amazing. We collected sea glass and shells and enjoyed the wonderful tide pools right there at the beach. It is a very private location and we felt like we were the only people around. We didnt want to go home! Will definitely reserve another week in the future.
