I spent four nights in this house in mid-April, 2010. It's very comfortable with all the important amenities (no wi-fi, but there is satellite TV). The real highlight is the deck which overlooks Black Sand Beach and affords a near 180 degree view of the ocean. Grey whales were very close to the shore. Beach access is close to the house (a short drive to the parking lot) and then there's the hiking in the Lost Coast Range. I took the trail up to King's Peak and loved the views.
The owner was very responsive to all pre-rental inquiries, and the security deposit was returned in short time. You can't go wrong with this vacation rental.
