About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Cabin 5 On The Bluff is located less than three hours drive north of San Francisco and is under new management. It is nestled right on an ocean cliff just off California's beautiful Highway 1 at the Mendocino County 3.83 milepost. Stand on the deck as low tide reveals the rocks where abalone abound. Crashing of the surf is always on hand and steps down to the ocean are located just across the driveway. Whales may be seen during their annual migrations, and sea lions reside on two small islands just up the coast. Cabin 5 is rustic and cozy. All rooms but one are built from redwood, and the home is completely furnished with bedding and linens, and including fireplace, forced air heating, free internet access, and DirectTV . Both bedrooms have wonderful white water views. The kitchen is small but functional with coffee maker, coffee grinder, stove, oven, toaster, refrigerator and microwave.The home is located two miles north of the small town of Gualala which has galleries, restaurants, gym, bookstore, and several spas. Five miles to the south is the eighteen hole Sea Ranch Golf Course. Other activities include kayaking on the Gualala River estuary or visiting the historic Point Arena Lighthouse located just ten miles to the north. Cap off your day by sitting on the deck with a glass of wine while watching the sun go down.

Gorgeous, serene get away

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing 2 night stay at beautiful Cabin 5 on the bluff. We were here to celebrate my 45th birthday (what?!), and it was truly one of our most wonderful stays on the coast. The cabin is very comfortable and, as the photos show, it sits in a gorgeuos spot overlooking the water. The way the cabin and deck are built, they are sheltered from the wind, so we were able to spend hours enjoying the views and sunset. Nearby are charming Gualala and Anchor Bay, and beaches to enjoy with our dog. We're already looking forward to our next stay!

fabulous views, cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

The deck is fantastic--perched on the bluff, spacious, and sheltered from the wind. We saw whales, seals, osprey and more from the comfort of our deck chairs. The cottage is rustic and comfortable. The kitchen is old-fashioned cabin style, but well supplied with all cooking basics plus a new gas stove. No dishwasher. Both bedrooms have wonderful views of the ocean. The bathroom too! (Otherwise it is rather small and would benefit from an overhaul--but perfectly functional.) The owners are gracious and accommodating. We would return in a heartbeat.

Richard was so helpful and friendly when we arrived.

The pictures don't do the panoramic views and beauty of this location justice at all - totally wonderful and 'pinch me' views. Very comfy rustic and quirky cabin, full of character and with those views! Great log burner. Fully equipped kitchen. Bathroom and bath/ shower with the views again! Lovely sandy beaches close by.

A wonderful find - highly recommended.
