Mendocino Coast Dunes is a short, six mile drive from downtown Fort Bragg. It is set in the heart of MacKerricher State Park, famous for its white water surf, big sandy beach, sea lion colony, sand dunes and many trails for hiking and biking. A short walk down our private trail gets you to the 10-30 minute just short of half mile walk across the fabulous dunes to “Ten Mile Beach” with its breathtaking views of the Pacific coastline.
The Sand Dollar is one of four homes available at the Mendocino Coast Dunes. This spacious one bedroom/one bath home features a large, open state of the art kitchen with a gas range and stainless steel appliances throughout. The living room is open to the kitchen and dining area. A gas-log fireplace accents the entertainment wall with a 43' flat screen TV. The very spacious master bedroom holds a queen captain's bed with a spacious sitting area including a breakfast nook. Two additional queen size futons are available in the living room and a second sleeping room off the master bedroom. The additional sleeping room has large, open windows facing the dunes with a second door to the outside patio. An open patio surrounds a private hot tub with dunes for backdrop and a year round fire pit awaits you. Access to the pristine dunes and beach of MacKerricher State Park is just a short walk via our private road. Pet friends are welcome with an additional deposit and “pet contract” pending approval prior to arrival.
Come enjoy this secluded property only minutes from downtown Fort Bragg, which offers additional activities, shopping and dining. Enjoy a pint at the legendary North Coast Brewing Company, catch the Skunk Train for a leisurely ride through the redwoods, and take a break from it all at one of the many restaurants or cafes Fort Bragg has to offer.
For the wine lover, don't miss Pacific Star Winery just right up the road a few miles. This winery is located on an incredible ocean bluff and offers many varietals of fine wines sure to please any pallet. Or make the day trip through the majestic redwoods to wine tasting with scenic views in nearby Anderson Valley. Roederer (famous for their sparkling wine), Navarro Vineyards, Husch Vineyards and Lazy Creek Vineyards are just a few of the wineries that can all be easily visited on a day away in wine country.
The charming town of Mendocino is also just a short distance south of Fort Bragg. Built on the rocky bluffs of the Pacific, Mendocino is a picture-perfect coastal village. Enjoy the panoramic ocean views while walking down Main Street. Check out the gourmet shops, local wines, delicious food, and the many art galleries in town.
