Blufftop Cook Cottage With 180-Degree Whitewater Views in Gualala!

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 4 nights


About the property

Welcome to Cook Cottage-

The views are stunning from everywhere in the house, even the bathrooms!

Located on the edge of the bluff in Gualala, Cook Cottage is perfectly suited to a romantic retreat or a fun getaway for up to 4 adults. Furnishings include ample seating both indoors and out on the view deck; great electronics including flat screen TVs with Blu-ray players in living room and both bedrooms (cable in living room and one bedroom), iPod docking music tower in living area, and docking alarm clocks in bedrooms; high end Aireloom mattresses on the two king beds; and wifi throughout.

The thoughtful provisions extend to the very well equipped kitchen with fun accessories for those meals you never have the time for at home for instance, a Kitchen-Aid mixer, combination pressure/slow cooker, food processor, and more! There is also a large charcoal BBQ. The dining table is comfortably sized to hold the fruits of the chef's labors, and it's higher than normal to provide superb views even while seated.

The living room also enjoys a great view, plenty of seating, and options for relaxing with the woodstove, TV or just a great book or conversation. Also on the main living level is a bathroom with shower, and laundry facilities. Upstairs are the two bedrooms flanking the second bathroom which features a deep stand-up Japanese-style soaking tub and a stall shower.

Cook Cottage is surrounded by wild natural beauty, and your sightings might include whales during their seasonal migrations, wild turkeys, deer, and many soaring and hunting birds like pelicans, ospreys, hawks and more.

Please note the access to the entry from street level is by a series of terraced steps. There is no beach or bluff access from this rugged location. Due to the high-risk setting, this home is not suitable for children or dogs.

Booking through a 3rd party site may result in additional fees for which we are not responsible and we are unable to waive or refund.

10 to 15.5% bed tax (depending on home location), plus cleaning and reservation fee will be added to the Daily and Weekly base rates shown on the blue Rates tab (next to Availability). For a quick-quote, simply click on the blue Availability tab for the date and number of nights you want to stay, and you’ll see the complete package presented. If you prefer, please call our office for personal attention.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were visiting friends who were camping in Gualala. It was the perfect retreat for us non campers with great deck with 180 degree views of ocean, and nearly on top of the ocean! Very clean and fully furnished. I took a photo of the king mattress because I am going to buy one when I get home--it was that comfortable! Thanks for the great recommendation at the property management firm!

Gualala Nirvana

  • 5 of 5

Cook Cottage sits on a bluff, directly over the ocean. The wonderful sound of the crashing waves, the fresh misty air, and the spectacular views can be experienced from any part of the house. There are lots of windows throughout the house and the large deck is a perfect place to while away the hours, from sunrise to sunset. It is an absolutely beautiful setting. The house was very well maintained and pristine/spotless. The big beds in each of the two bedrooms were very comfortable. The kitchen was very well-equipped -- there was everything on hand (pots, pans, utensils, plates, wine openers, coffee maker, etc., etc.) to be able to eat, drink, and be merry. A return trip to Cook Cottage is on my "to do" list. It was the perfect place to relax, rejuvenate, and get away from it all!

Starry, starry night

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful house and a fantastic front row seat to the ocean. The highlight was the incredible number stars you could see when dark. Spectacular.

the sounds of the sea

  • 5 of 5

Nice ambience, great private setting, great sea sounds, excellent ocean views, very comfortable bed(s), its our kind of place. It was a little cool(low to mid 50's) but we did get to see several pods of whales 100-200 yards off the deck. My wife suzanne loved the place, it was a mothers day hit with her. After hearing the wave sounds for three days, its hard to leave.

Amazing view, perfect getaway for couples or famil

  • 5 of 5

Great location, everything the pictures promise. Very well equipped and balcony perfect for dining and enjoying the view. We hiked Gualala State Park and Pt Arena and will explore further the next time we visit. There will be a next time. And, Coasting Homes were always on hand to supplement logs (not wood) for the fireplace we really enjoyed on the chilly evenings.
