About the property

Quaint 2-Bedroom, 2-Bath With A Trundle Bed And Sleeper Sofa

Heart Song is the ultimate beachfront cottage in immaculate condition. Cedar shingles grace the exterior of the home and the unique floor-plan lends itself to an enjoyable stay. The close-up ocean views are sure to delight throughout the day. We encourage you to enjoy your daytime hours scanning the endless horizon for whales, dolphins, and magnificent whitewater waves. However, if you're looking to spot the ideal locale for a sunset barbecue, Heart Song offers a second story barbeque vista that cannot be beat. Offshore about 200 yards directly west is a reef that catches waves perfectly, showing off huge 'rooster-tail' events that will have you 'oo-ing and 'ah-ing'. Your vacation at Heart Song will lift your spirits and offer you memories that will have you returning year after year.

The house was beautifully situated on the bluffs with a panoramic view of the ocean and lovely deck.

The beds were very nice but be aware there aren't any actual bedrooms with doors. The bedrooms are "separated" by furniture, so if you are seeking privacy this might not be the best place for you. It worked for us, a group of friends reunioning, however.

The kitchen is well-stocked in terms of rental properties, but as a group of chefs and food enthusiasts, the equipment was somewhat insufficient. I had to go to ft Bragg to purchase a cutting board, because the "cutting board" they supplied was a piece of glass. Perhaps this is why they also do not have nice knives. You will want to bring your own knives for sure and any very large cookware you might need. The pots and pans there are all very cheap with teflon flaking off of them (again, pretty typical for a rental, and I know I am very particular about kitchen supplies as a chef). There was a coffee grinder, fondue set, and popcorn popper, however!

It was an incredible rainstorm that weekend and some of the doors have a hard time shutting completely. Also, there was a significant ant infestation, so be sure to put away all of your food!

The futon couch in the living room is really poorly constructed and the cushion just slides off when the couch is upright, and does not stay laying flat when in bed-mode. I would recommend to the owners that they upgrade that to a sleeper sofa if they want to truly claim that this house sleeps 8.

Overall the house was lovely, but I know that I would appreciate knowing all of these things before booking it.

Best Ocean Views

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of family and friends who picked this place for our long weekend vacation in May. We could have been happier in our choice of this place. The views from the backyard and the house are just stunning, with the backyard ending in a cliff and with waters below. There is no beach access though. The sunset is to die for. Our year-old nephews had an amazing time in the hot tub while watching the sunset. Overall, I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a quiet and pleasant vacation right on the beach.

A gorgeous, hidden jem

  • 5 of 5

Our time spent here was purely amazing. We were looking for a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of life and got that and so much more with the Heart Song Home. The home is in immaculate condition and provided us with all the little extras we needed to cook, relax, and enjoy. There were four couples in our party and we all found that there was more than enough room to socialize, yet still have some privacy.

Complete panoramic views of the ocean from the entire back portion of the home's property left us speechless. The short walk to the neighborhood beach was well worth it, quiet and clean. We absolutely loved it here and plan to return in the near future. Thank you for making my husband's birthday getaway a complete success.

Heartsong was a little slice of heaven. The view was spectacular, the beds were amazing, the house had everything we needed and more. The hot tub was set up and nice and warm when we got there. Nice quaint little beach street was so quiet and away from lights so you could see all the stars at night listening to the peaceful sound of the waves. AMAZING......My favorite little spot was a chair built into the trunk of a tree, what a view.....My young adult kids and their kids had an amazing time and would love to stay longer next time.

Zen Paradise for travelers with a small dog!

  • 5 of 5

This home is a perfect place to relax and forget about the hustle and bustle of city life. We brought our 4 year old 19 lb terrier mix along with my nephew and his girlfriend who also brought their small poodle mix. It is always hard to find a rental that would accommodate a dog. We were so happy to discover that Heart Song was a pet friendly rental. Everything was clean and maintained well. No doggy smell to be found! The kitchen had all of the amenities and it was a joy to prep and cook with that wonderful view! The beds were super comfortable. Yoga on the deck every day was inspirational. One thing to mention to other travelers is that it takes more that 20 minutes to Fort Bragg, so if you forget something like shampoo, cooking oil, and paper plates, that little store down the road is not going to have it. We drove into Fort Bragg at least 4 times for supplies! The time spent here with the magnificent views was well worth it and the family bonding time, priceless. We love Heart Song and will return again.

Car: recommended

Heart Song is located on the water's edge of the Pacific Ocean in the picturesque village of Westport. It is a 20 minute drive to Fort Bragg and 30 minute drive to the quaint, historic town of Mendocino. Guests will love this location if they are in search of peace, fresh air, cool ocean breezes and memorable views of wildlife and the magnificent Pacific ocean.
