About Tim and Kathy Gaughen


We recently relocated to this beautiful community from the Big Island of Hawaii. We lived on the island for 35 years where we raised a family and fully enjoyed the island style of living. When we retired, though, we knew it was time for a change.

Back in California after all those years in Puna, Volcano, and Kona, we now enjoy the proximity of children, grandchildren and extended family.

Tim and Kathy Gaughen purchased this house in 2011

Why Tim and Kathy Gaughen chose Fort Bragg

Like Kona, Fort Bragg is a spectacular Pacific Coast community. This property offers space, beauty, redwoods, wildlife, and comfort.

Perfect space for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed here a few years ago and loved it! So when we started planning our trip to the coast we were happy we could stay here again. The location is just north of Ft. Bragg and just a few blocks away from MacKerricher Beach.

The house is nicely furnished and very clean .

The hot tub surrounded by redwood trees is an added plus.

We will be coming back next year!

Wonderful place for a family get together

  • 4 of 5

House is well laid out with space for everyone to gather and be together, and private bedrooms when you needed a quiet nap. We were six adults and no children and the house accommodated us perfectly.

Plenty of parking with easy access to Highway 1 for forays to the beach parks, shopping and restaurants.

The kitchen is well appointed with dishes, pots and pans, plus an outdoor gas grill on the deck. The deck was a great place to relax and read in the afternoons and watch the sun set below the trees.

We were comfortable and had a great time. The hot tub is set in the middle of a small redwood grove. We enjoyed that in the nights and early mornings.

The only downside is that being out in the country, several miles outside of Ft. Bragg, the strength of the Wi-Fi and bandwidth is low, which is typical of the area. We used our cell phones on our daily trips to town.

Plenty of room

  • 4 of 5

We had 7 adults 3 teens and a dog and there was plenty of comfortable sleeping accomodations for all. The WiFi is spotty but that may be how it is in Ft Bragg. The kitchen had plenty of silverware etc. the location of this home is close to everything. The hot tub in the trees is beautiful. We would stay again at this lovely home.

Excellent Hot Tub

  • 4 of 5

The house was fine, and the kitchen was very well equipped (much appreciated since I love to cook). We found the downstairs to be very dark and had a bit of pet odor, but the upstairs was great and the deck was lovely. The house is entirely wall-to-wall carpeted, which is cozy but not for everyone. Last, the house is surrounded by other rentals/homes, which is not entirely clear from the photos. We felt we had total privacy, but there wasn't as much outdoor space as we expected. The highlight that made this place stand out was the hot tub in the little stand of redwoods. A really special spot, very relaxing after spending a foggy day on the beach (which is only a few minutes away).
