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.

                                                            Great location. Beautiful garden!! Generous host with quick response.

                                                            The property is very nice. Beds are comfortable, easy access, very comfortable. Well stocked kitchen for home cooking. We had to battle ants - it is after all the countryside - but they provided an organic, safe spray that did the trick. Otherwise, a perfect stay.

                                                            Great house, pefect location

                                                            Rosa L.

                                                            Whether you love the ocean or the forest, this is the place to stay.

                                                            The house is big, and the upstairs space, with the kitchen, the cozy living room, and the views is great to cook and hang out. It has everything that you may need, and the directions and help form the managers are very welcoming.

                                                            The proximity to the forest, and the ocean shore makes it specially recommendable to nature lovers and hikers.


                                                            Lindal S.

                                                            We absolutely loved our stay here. The house was just what we hoped for our Thanksgiving. The kitchen was fully stocked, the view was amazing. Thank you!

                                                            A great home away from home

                                                            Beth E.

                                                            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

                                                            Stephanie C.

                                                            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.


                                                            Elk, CA, USA

                                                            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.
