About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 14

Serendipity and all it offers is truly inspirational. This is a fantastic four-bedroom vacation rental along the ocean, the beach and 10-Mile River north of Fort Bragg. The spacious home offers lots of room to roam with 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths and lots of pullouts and room to sleep up to 14 people. But there’s more - a fun-filled game room, fully equipped stainless-steel kitchen, a separate guest cottage right on the property, a private hot tub, and breathtaking views of the California coast - making it the perfect setting for your next family reunion or holiday gathering! The home is ideally located across the street from beach access (at 10 Mile River & Seaside Beach), just five minutes away from whale watching and collecting sea shells at MacKerricher State Park, 14 minutes to antique shopping and restaurants in Fort Bragg and if you want to stretch it a bit, just another 8 minutes down the road to Mendocino and don't forget the hot tubing right outside your back door on a 24 foot by 24 foot redwood deck.

The home will instantly relax you with heated tile flooring, a gas fireplace, a large chocolate-leather sectional sofa with a chaise lounge, and enough space for all your guests to get cozy. A stained glass window depicting life undersea becomes the beautiful focal point of the open-concept living room. The carved-wood media center offers a flat-screen TV, CD player, DVD library and player, and cable. Just around the corner, a separate entertainment nook has a second TV with a Nintendo Wii - so from family movie nights to gaming marathons, you can create memories in even the dreariest weather.

A fully-equipped, stainless-steel kitchen will allow you to serve guests in comfort… or, if you prefer, someone can serve you in comfort. Kitchen accessories include a dishwasher, French door refrigerator and ice maker, double sink, oven, and stove. The kitchen island will keep you from brushing elbows while preparing the big meal, and three bar stools around the island for relaxing and visiting with the chefs of your group. The early risers can enjoy a large pub style table with 4 chairs next to large picture windows to catch a peek at the outdoor wildlife. Just off the living area is a formal dining room and table for ten. The garage has been set up as a game room, offering 2 red leather futons, a wood table for six to deal out a game of Texas Hold 'Em, a foosball table, a ping-pong table, and plenty of storage space for your beach bags and mountain bikes. Outdoor games such as volleyball, horseshoes, and croquet are included. When game time's over, lounge outside in patio furniture on the deck or in the private hot tub, open a bottle of wine, and watch as waves crash into the shore and wildflowers rollick in the wind. The charcoal grill and private hot tub will allow you to keep the fun outdoors and take advantage of the fresh ocean air. The 3,200-square-foot home and its cozy cottage sleeps 14 guests. The first Bedroom is the Master Suite with a California King bed and a queen size sleeper sofa with upgraded mattress, it has a huge bathroom with a large jetted tub and luxurious over-sized shower. This room connects directly to the outdoor redwood deck as well. The second bedroom offers a queen-size bed, and private patio access. The third bedroom is more like a spacious nook including a queen size bed, a large couch and a TV. The fourth bedroom has a trundle bed that makes out into two twin beds. These rooms share 2 separate full bathrooms with showers. The separate cottage offers a wonderful spot for a couple or a small family who might prefer a little extra privacy. In the cottage, there's a king bed, a queen sleeper sofa with upgraded mattress, and a half-bath, There's also a cozy gas stove and cable TV, so if the cottage's occupants don't feel like socializing with a big group, they can still relax and enjoy their own private getaway. It’s “Serendipity”. (please note there is an additional charge for use of the cottage if the number of guests is 10 or less)

Reviewer Comments:

We had 4 married couples and 1 single adult for a reunion in October. Our #1 purpose was to be together. Everyone was happy to have their own bedroom unlike other trips. This location is about 4 miles to the closest restaurant, Mexican, which was yummy and about 10 miles to the town of Fort Bragg. The property was in excellent shape. Since everyone had "devices" it seem to be a drain on the internet accessibility so it was very slow and frustrating to people use to getting their daily updates of email, news, etc. One of the bedrooms had to use the other bedroom to go through to access the rest of the house unless they went outside and around. The Property was described accurately just a bit confusing when we got there to see how it would all work out. The master had it's own bathroom and one bedroom had it's own. The 3rd bathroom opened to the twin bed room and the laundry room which was the way the other bedroom residence had to enter the bathroom they shared. We had nothing but good contact with the manager. Our family enjoyed playing ping pong, watching a movie, walking down to the storming sea, eating at the Purple Rose Mexican restaurant, walking around town, seeing Glass Beach even though it was very windy and just enjoying the time together.

Reviewer Comments:

The house and cottage was perfect for our group of seven guys. The living room was large with plenty of seating and there are plenty of beds for the whole group. The kitchen was very well stocked with plenty of utensils and very nice appliances. Overall it was by far the best house we have rented in the twenty years this group has been coming to the north coast. It is close enough to town and the dive locations to be convenient but not feel like you are surrounded by the town.
