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.

The PERFECT weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Cabin 5. The cabin has so much character and you can tell the owners take so much pride in their place.

The giant windows in each room allow you to take in the breathtaking views of the ocean and allow the coastal breeze to flow through. The living room is so cozy, the bed is extremely comfortable and the shower with a giant window looking out onto the cove was perfect. We spent most of the time on the patio, the best part of the place, drinking coffee in the morning and champagne in the evening.

My only complaint is that I wish I would've booked a third night. We will definitely be back!

We loved our stay at Cabin 5 on the Bluff. The weather was gorgeous and the views from the deck were spectacular! We took long walks on the beaches in the area, had a lovely Thai dinner in Anchor Bay and cooked meals in the working kitchen and enjoyed every meal and happy hour on the lovely deck with those amazing views. Everything was comfortable and the sauna was an extra treat. I would book again in a heart-beat. Thanks Richard and Shelly for sharing your cabin with us.

Beautiful cabin five on the bluff

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Cabin 5, the view is out of this world. It was a little chilly outside, but there is lots of wood to keep the fire going so we were very cozy. We actually enjoyed the outdoor fire pit as well. (Until it started to rain.) We cooked our meals on site and were lacking nothing. Great cabin, we will be back!

We couldn't be happier with the experience provided by Richard and Shelley. The cabin felt like a home away from home with the added bonus of million dollar views without breaking the bank. A beautiful and comfy cabin with plenty of firewood and everything you need to prepare meals. Our pups loved the property and Shelley provided great tips on nearby places to take them. We plan to make this a regular getaway. You will LOVE this place! Susan & Jesse
