Overview

Manchester Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Driftwood Bungalow - approximately 15 private acres on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. Dramatic views of waves crashing over rocks, see the tide ebb and flow, marvel at the sunset - all from your cozy living room and deck.

Every room was created with attention paid to detail...and a few quirky surprises...fish lights, murals on walls.....

Living Room opens onto the deck. Enjoy views of the ocean as you have your breakfast, play a game of monopoly or do a jigsaw puzzle while listening to sounds of the surf. Comfortable loveseat and chairs in the living room on one end and on the other there is a cream colored table with vibrant red leather chairs and a wonderful ocean view.

Open the french doors and walk out to admire the breathtaking view. Watch pelicans diving for fish, seals frolic in the surf and whales as they migrate. Sit and enjoy lunch on the deck picnic table or read a book in a comfy mesh chair with your feet propped up as you feel your cares slip away while the ocean breeze caresses your face.

In the family room you will find a huge sectional sofa and a 32 inch LCD TV for watching movies; DVD and VCR viewing only, no cable. There is a selection of movies or bring your family favorites. (Sectional is also a full-sized hide-a-bed.)

Master Bedroom has a Queen Bed outfitted with cozy flannel sheets. Pretty blues, pale teal, and rich chocolate brown highlight the master bedroom. Wonderful ocean-themed pictures and decorations complete the decor. Open your window at night and listen to the sounds of the ocean.

Second bedroom has a fun Surfing Theme with two twin beds. Flannel sheets and colorful Pottery Barn Quilts add to your comfort. Great room for the young...or young at heart!

The kitchen is fully equipped and ready for you. Dishwasher, Toaster, griddle, blender, coffee maker, microwave, utensils, waffle iron, gadgets galore and plenty of dishes/glassware for your use. Enjoy a view of the Point Arena Lighthouse from the dining table.

Two gas powered fireplaces warm your nights with the flick of a switch. Grab a cozy afghan, pick a spot and settle in to read the novel you've been meaning to! We have a lending library for your pleasure, sometimes one book just isn't enough!

Fenced yard off the deck, great for child and pet safety. Tuggy Tugboat Sandbox and sand toys for the tykes to enjoy.

Great View, great house, pet friendly, Yay!

  • 5 of 5
My hubby and I spent our 5th annual Thanksgiving week at Driftwood Bungalow with our dogs and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was truly our home away from home. From the moment that we walked through the front door it felt cozy and inviting. The gas stoves were lit, the rooms were warm, spotless and it smelled like a fresh apple pie had just been taken out of the oven! Rose, the property manager, was so friendly and helpful and took great care to ensure that we had everything we could possible want. At first I was nervous about there being no cable in the house, but we so enjoyed not having it. We spent more time together talking, playing with the dogs in the wonderful fenced in yard, enjoying the deck and the beautiful ocean view, watching the tide come and go and the sun set. Thanks, Doug, for NO CABLE! The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook any meal you want -- we cooked a turkey dinner! And the bungalow is close to Point Arena where there is plenty to do to keep you interested with a great bakery, pizza shop and restaurant that serves great fish and chips. All in all our favorite place to stay on the Coast with our dogs!

Beautiful Views, Comfortable Lodging

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I enjoyed 4 nights at Driftwood despite rainy weather. It is a great spot from which to explore the coast by car. The cottage is extremely organized with directions available for all systems and the location of all the items one needs for a comfortable stay. There are 2 gas log stoves - one in the living room and the other in the family room. They worked well for the cool nights and mornings that we experienced. There is no cable, but the owner has provided many movies; however, they are dated so carrying a few of your own might add to your enjoyment on movie nights. Thanks to Rose, the cottage is very clean. She is available if you need her (She lives in the attached cottage.), but she is otherwise unobtrusive.
The only downside - especially for families with small children - is that Driftwood is on a cliff. It is quite a hike to the beach down several wide, grassy switchbacks. Carrying everything needed for a day at the beach while corralling small children could be a challenge. If this isn't an issue for you, Driftwood is a fun spot - one we wish we had enjoyed in the summer.

Beautiful location overlooking the beach

  • 4 of 5
Driftwood is a lovely location that has spectacular sunsets, night skies and a great view. We traveled up and down the coast to Pt. Arena and Mendocino while we were there and enjoyed exploring the small towns. The drive through the redwoods and vineyards through the mountains was lovely. Lots of space in the bungalow with everything you need to cook your own meals.

Roomy Bungalow

The bungalow has a great view and is very roomy. Perfect for two adults and two children. Loved listening to the ocean as I fell asleep each night. Very relaxing stay wish we could have stayed a couple more nights.

Relaxing and active vacation

  • 5 of 5
8 nights.Our 2 adult kids joined us for 3 nights . Best vrbo home in our years of California coast vacationing. Comfortable and convenient layout, along with great ocean views from the family room, back deck and hot tub. Comfortable rooms for hours of reading-conversation. We walked to the basically private beach each day and walked for a few quiet miles. Kayaking and beautiful Fern Canyon hike at Van Damme Park- and biked there, too.Nice kitchen for breakfast in the morning and excellent community restaurants for lunch and dinner. The owner, Doug , was very nice and accommodating and property manager,Rose, helpful,nice and invisible unless we needed her. Fenced yard for our dog was a nice extra.

Beautiful view, house on a cliff, hear the ocean

  • 5 of 5
This cute house was accurately represented in the vrbo listing and pictures. Doug, the owner, was very responsive to emails and pleasant and easy to work with. He also provides a lot of useful information about the property and surrounding area. His driving directions were VERY helpful and appreciated (vs the gps). Rose, the caretaker, is absolutely charming and wonderful! She does a really good job taking care of the house and cleaned it well. We rent 1-2 houses a year, but this was our first time staying at a "dog-friendly" house. I couldn't detect any lingering pet smells or see anything (like hair). Our son has allergies and asthma and he did just fine in this house. Our kids are ages 8 & 10 and enjoyed our stay there, especially with the hot tub, hammock, swing and tetherball. The hot tub can seat 3 people and it only looks a couple of years old. You need to bring your own beach towels, but Doug has this listed in his reminders. We enjoyed the hike to the beach everyday, it is amazing how far down/up the cliff you walk! I don't know if I would recommend this house as the best fit for families with young babies/toddlers that plan to spend a lot of time on the beach, only because it might be challenging to climb over the large piles of driftwood to get on the beach while carrying the babies and all of the beach gear. The house is well stocked with supplies, has a built in water filtration system for drinking, charcoal bbq and wifi (not the strongest). My cell phone (AT&T) had very limited and spotty service, so the land line was appreciated. The fridge is completely empty and cleaned out. The house windows look newer, it is so nice to be able to easily open and close them securely to enjoy the fresh air.

The only suggestion that would have made our stay more enjoyable, would be to add a laundry washer/dryer added as an amenity.
