About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathrooms, White Water Ocean Views, Close To Greenwood Beach

This family friendly home features 3 fireplaces, with plenty of firewood stacked on the property, ready for your use. The Master Bedroom is on the 2nd floor and has its own pot belly fireplace insert. It has a full shower and walk-in closet. The second and third bedrooms are on the ground floor. One has a queen bed and ocean view, the other has 2 twin beds. A twin roll away is also available. The second bathroom and additional half bathroom are on the ground floor. The new full size washing machine and dryer are in a closet in the downstairs area.

The fully equipped kitchen is upstairs, and features a Jenn-air convection gas range with infra-red heat lamps. Additional kitchen utensils include Keurig pod coffee maker, and we also have a drip coffee machine, waffle maker, blender, standing mixer - everything you need whether you are making a gourmet meal or a picnic lunch.

Time will appear to stand still while you sit on the ocean facing balcony where you can listen to the surf, smell the ocean, and watch the waves. The dining and living areas are also upstairs and both have ocean views; and the cream leather couch and loveseat are perfect places to relax, put your feet up and enjoy nature at its best.

We also provide a 40' flat screen TV with Netflix, Blue Ray DVD and VHS, with many family movies or CD's for your listening pleasure.

If you would prefer to read a book or do a puzzle, we have a variety of genres from which to choose, together with coloring books and board games. Sitting on the rug doing a puzzle in front of the fireplace has got to be one of our favorite things to do.

The front garden is a special feature of the property, as lavender bushes spill onto the brick walkway, and humming birds and deer are regular visitors.

Whether you are looking for rest, relaxation or romance, this property is ideal. The ocean views are breathtaking, and you can walk across the street to Greenwood State Beach or behind the house to the redwood trees for a short stroll to the river.

There are many local restaurants within walking distance, or we are only 17 miles South of downtown Mendocino where unique boutiques, antiques, and fine dining await.

The Point Arena Lighthouse is 20 miles to the South, and at 115 ft, is the tallest Pacific Coast Lighthouse which you can still climb to the top. It is also the closest point of land to Hawaii in the Continental US. Full Moon Nighttime Tours are scheduled on full moon nights through December.

If you are in the mood for wine tasting, the picturesque Mendocino Wine Country is close by, where you can taste fine wines and champagnes, and then bring a bottle home to sip while watching the spectacular sunset.

A great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect! The house was just what we needed for our family- generous, spacious home. The space allowed us to have comfortable separate areas but great community space,; great kitchen & game playing area at the dining room table. Great location; the town of ELK is warm, friendly & great location between Point Arena, Mendocino, Fort Bragg to The state parks! I can't say enough good about this house , location & the whole Pacific coast experience!

Beautiful house in quiet community

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the house - it was perfect for the six of us as it had three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The house was very clean and had all the necessary amenities. The view was great from the house and we loved how we could walk to the beach and nearby store and restaurants. The firepit was a lovely bonus and we used it every night and the garden was gorgeous. Kim and John were very hospitable hosts and answered every question we had promptly. Would recommend a stay here for a quiet getaway.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house couldn’t be more perfect. It was clean and comfortable; the view is amazing and every amenity you would need is available. There is a large, fully stocked kitchen with all the appliances one would need for cooking, all you have to do is bring your own food. We loved using the telescope to look out onto the beach and ocean, there are even a pair of binoculars to use. We were in town for a wedding and on the go most of the time, but if you are looking for a relaxing get away – this is the place! The wifi worked great. The tv has Netflix (no cable), there is an Xbox, and board games as well. We loved relaxing on the deck overlooking the ocean. The beach is accessible down the road from the Greenwood State Park. The path to the beach is not too steep, it is lined with wildflowers and very beautiful, definitely worth the walk. We had breakfast at Queenie’s (a two minute walk down the road) a few times and everything we tried was amazing! If you are thinking about a vacation to Northern California, you can’t go wrong with this home!

Amazing view, clean and great basic household needs.

  • 5 of 5

My parents, teenagers & I loved the very small town of Elk. The view of the ocean is fabulous. Very relaxing. The beach is very small but that is what makes it great. Kim has done a great job in furnishing the home basic essentials. She is also easily reachable by e-mail, if you have questions. She is quick to respond. Thank you so much in having a great home.

Beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious, has a wonderful view, and beautiful garden space. It's a two minute walk to any of the cute town stores. Coordination and correspondence were an ease. Would definitely stay here again.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay and as before we truly enjoyed it. The house has everything we needed. The location is perfect with great views.. The grounds are lovely only sorry that we didn't have a chance to enjoy the new fire pit which looked very inviting! Kim was great to work with. We look forward to our next stay!
