About the property

2 bedroom contemporary cottage with hot tub on 5 acres of ocean front views

THE VIEWS DO NOT GET BETTER THAN THIS! This photo was taken from the dining room table one evening. We recently have been watching the Whales from the same dining room table. The commanding views are breathtaking, whether from the home, the hot tub, or walking along the beach or picnicking on the bluff. Watch the ocean transform from sunrise to sunset, with the Lost Coast framing the horizon. Enjoy a romantic or family stay in our contemporary home on 5 ocean-front acres. In the evenings enjoy the glass-front wood burning stove, or watch the stars and listen to the ocean from the comfort of the hot tub. Walk along the many beaches stretching along the Ocean, and enjoy the tidal pools, seals and vistas. The property shares the private beach shown in the photo, and has it's own private cove, accessible at low tide and known for the sea glass to be found in its sands.

The seaside village of Westport is only a half mile away, and makes for a pleasant walk. There is a small store in the adjoining campground with essentials, and a quaint store in the village. We are comfortably far from shopping malls and fast food, and very close to the ocean waves and the stars.

Oh, and did I mention that the views are great from the hot tub?

About Dan

Bay Area professional, with a lifelong love of travel

Dan purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Dan chose North Coast

It takes my breath away every time I look out at the Pacific Ocean surf rolling into the miles of California coast visible from the cottage windows. I would love to share this with you.

What makes this cottage unique

Peaceful setting, with incredible views of the interplay of ocean and light from dawn to sunset. Walk for miles at low tide through the pristine Nothern beaches past acres of tidepools. When the surf is up, watch from the bluff top, hot tub or dining room table as the ocean sings its song.

This is a NON SMOKING house.

Great escape

  • 5 of 5

Our dates of stay coincidentally started the same day as the Sonoma County firestorm. We live in Sonoma County. Though we live in a part that was not threatened, it was terrific to have clean air to breathe. When we left, we had no idea if our homes were threatened or not, and at the last minute I told Dan, the owner, that I was bringing my cat and to just add the pet fee. He very kindly waived the fee due to the situation. Kitty hated the drive, but loved the cottage. We enjoyed the cottage, beach and nearby places to walk along the bluffs with breathtaking views everywhere. I took lots of pictures of waves splashing on rocks. The clear skies were also wonderful for stargazing from the fabulous hot tub at night. Beds are super comfortable. 2 nice sitting areas for reading. Kitchen is very well stocked with cookware and utensils. Property is next to a small cemetery (also good for photographers!); the neighbors don't get any quieter than that! Would love to return, and will recommend Cottage at Sweet Cove to friends.

Perfect get-away! Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Views are AMAZING!! This cottage was the perfect place to celebrate my 45th birthday with my husband. We were looking for a place to relax, unwind and recharge. The walks on the beach, watching the sunsets from the bluff and the constant sound of the ocean did the trick. We enjoyed everything about this place. If you want to escape from it all and enjoy a little slice of heaven, this is the place for you. I will definitely be back. Thank you!

Can't wait until we can return :)

Our overall stay was great. The house was very nice and comfortable for our family. Very well stocked and very clean. The only suggestion I might have is maybe a small privacy fence along the road side of the yard. It was a little unnerving having the campground road right outside the window and sitting at the dining table having people driving or walking up from the campground staring at you through the window while you were eating. Other than that, it is a great location and perfect for a family. I loved that my teen kids could walk to the beach and I could still keep an eye on them.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review; we can't wait to stay again ourselves. The road does get busy on holiday weekends, and we sometimes draw the window blinds.

My husband I stayed at the cottage and loved every every minute. The views are so amazing it's hard to use words to describe them. It's private, quiet , and comfortable. We sat on the bluff that overlooks the rugged ocean and beach each afternoon. It was private which made it all the more enjoyable and relaxing. The kitchen is stocked with everything needed to make a meal to enjoy while looking at the ocean! My husband loved listening to and looking at the ocean while he barbecued. The hot tub is amazing while looking at the sunset. Sweet Cove is a wonderful place. If we ever plan a trip to the northern coast again we would definitely stay there again

Had a wonderful time. Great views. Not property fault at all but foggy the entire week which was disappointing. House kitchen well supplied & games, puzzles were fun. Comfy beds. The shower clarification was much appreciated Dan!! Loved the walk to the point & the table. And beach was easily accessible Thank you!!
