Hot tub old doesn't work but they will tell you it does. Had to haul wood upstairs to wood stove and out to fire pit also wood was so green it would not burn.

Owner's Response: The hot tub is an old-style Jacuzzi tub and doesn’t have high speed jets (more of a soaking tub) The tub was ready to go and hot on their arrival, but they didn’t use it the first night or check to see if it was hot. The tub is on a timer that heats it during peak periods of use. The guest said the hot tub wasn’t hot. We immediately sent our handyman to the home to check to see what the problem was. The timer button had to be reset as it was a non--peak heating time. We do have hot tub instructions in the house concerning the timer. We didn’t hear from the guest again during their stay. After their departure, we checked the tub and the temperature was at 104. Even though the tub was working, we have given the guest a credit for the hot tub. Regarding “green” wood. The wood has been seasoned three years. We fill the wood basket next to the wood stove and lay a fire for the guests. If more wood is needed, there is wood outside the home in a covered bin. Since, the wood stove is upstairs, they would have to bring wood into the home if more is needed during their stay. We’re very sorry the guest did not have a happy stay.

Absolutely unique little house!

  • 5 of 5

For 1 or 2 people, there is nothing more fun for a place to stay on the Mendocino Coast! The view is spectacular of the mouth of the Navarro, whenever the fog decides to lift (don't expect to see much when you wake up in the morning though.) But even that was fine. Everything was very comfortable. If you are a person who has to have all their devices functional, this might not be for you though. DISH doesn't work when the fog is in, and there is no cellular reception. But no matter; once you get used to being "off grid" so to speak, the silence is refreshing and restorative. I would certainly stay here again!
