!!Special!! Cypress Dunes Bordering MacKerricher State Park

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + One Convertible bed, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

This lovely home is at the end of a quiet lane, with over an acre of lawn, flowers, and a wide variety of fruit and evergreen trees, and best of all, right next door to the beautiful beaches and dunes of Mackerricher State Park. By walking up an easy trail from the yard and into the dunes, you gain access to miles of secluded beaches and breathtaking vistas. The wildlife is wonderful...early in the morning there are deer and jackrabbits, throughout the day hawks, osprey and sea-birds are plentiful, including the rare snowy plovers running along the edge of the water.

The walk across the dunes from the house to the ocean is about 1/4 mile and takes anywhere from 15-30 minutes depending on your pace. Once you reach the beach, you can head south and hike a couple miles to the tide pools. If you head north a couple miles you arrive at the outlet of ten mile river…this is a good area to look for seals. Just north of the river are fascinating rock formations with tunnels and arches and lots of mussels.

Watching the sunset from the dunes is spectacular and afterward, it's just short walk back to the comforts of your vacation home. Sitting on the deck, you can hear the sounds of the surf in the distance.

Cooking dinner at home is a pleasure with the well-equipped kitchen and barbecue. As the moist ocean breezes cool the evening air, you can relax by the fire or in the luxurious privacy of the large hot tub on the back deck.

A wide variety of shops, galleries, restaurants, and tourist attractions such as the Botanical Gardens and the Skunk Train are just a short drive south in Fort Bragg and Mendocino. The Mendocino county area also has a growing variety of cultural and recreational activities and there are details available at the house.

Comfortable Clean Coastal Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay with elderly parents at Cypress Dunes. The property is well maintained and situated on a spacious property with beautiful trees. The furnishing were in good condition and the beds were very comfortable. The single floor layout worked well for our group. The location at the end of the lane and adjacent to the state park was quiet and private. Enjoyed the walk on the trail over the dunes to the coast. Beautiful views.

Over all the house cozy and comfortable. A slow drain in one shower and a bed room fan/light not working. The hot tub and warmth of the house were the best!

Tranquil Bird Haven

  • 5 of 5

The house is at the end of a long lane, on a lovely piece of property with lots of trees--cypress, of course, but also fruit tress and others. Even though the ocean is a good ways west of the house, it's so quiet there one can hear the ocean's roar in the distance. The birds love the place. There were quail with their babies, robins, blue jays, crows, and hummingbirds, to name a few. The hummingbirds loved the fuschia bush that is planted outside the kitchen window. It was wonderful seeing them sip nectar while I was doing dishes. The house was comfortable (as were the beds) and clean. The kitchen was well equipped, though the can opener is one that is for those with strong hands--if you had arthritis you'd be out of luck. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return someday soon. We had an small issue with the cable TV, but we received help immediately when I called the contact number.

On a separate note, a former reviewer said his/her three-year-old walked to the beach from the house unaided, and at the thought of that my husband and I laughed out loud as we made our way out to the ocean from the house. The trek to the beach is over HUGE sand dunes, and while it can be done--even by an out of shape 50 something woman-- it is no "walk in the park." If a three-year old walked there by him/herself (no assistance from parents), I say sign that kid up for American Ninja or something! It's a trek, make no mistake!

A Couples Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Cypress Dunes for over 8 years, and always enjoy the peace and tranquility of this lovely home. Such an 'out of the way' retreat located at the end of a quiet lane, and just a stones throw from the Dunes and the Beach not far beyond. A nice kitchen for cooking with lots of space for relaxing, the hot tub is very private and well maintained. Two large queen bedrooms and fold out couches offer room for all. If you like a nice fire, its right there in the center of the home with wood ready to go. My wife and I spent lots of time just enjoying the quiet bliss, patter of rain on the roof, and when the sun broke through, it was off to the beach and a little shell hunting. We cooked in a good bit, but there are a number of eateries to choose from, the North Coast Brewing Co. is our favorite. We use the Harvest Market to shop at and you should check out their Deli section, wonderful food cooked and ready to go, and the soups are so good! It won't be long before we're missing our Ocean hideaway and its time visit again. Jannelle the owner is just the best, friendly, helpful, and always accommodating.
