We selected the Mendocino Coast and Fort Bragg in particular for natural wooded beauty and spectacular shoreline as well as a temperate climate. Proximity to the Pacific was essential and the availability of an airstrip a wonderful addition.

For a quiet place to relax with a good book, enjoy the beaches, BBQ, see deer, watch a small plane or two take off and land, this vacation cottage of Cliff and Dee's just can't be beat. It's just the perfect size for two couples or a small family. Our son and family had his trailer parked at Cleone and one night they joined us for a fresh salmon BBQ. Afterwards the kids watched videos and we played cards. There was plenty of space for kids to run, fly kites and explore with the two resident dogs - both friendly, sweet and very well behaved (both dogs and both grandkids that is!) Cliff and Dee were very friendly and helpful hosts and were available to make our stay the best!
Michael's once in a lifetime blue whale experience while fishing with his Ft. Bragg cousins added to make this a most unforgetable gem of a vacation. We definately recommend this place.
We just returned from three nights at the little cottage on the airstrip! It was a fantastic stay. We have two children, 7 and 9, and we all had a ball! From hiking around the woods behind the cabin, to tromping to the beach, to eating yummy ice cream at Cowlick's in town, to watching two Piper Cubs come and go.... this getaway was exactly what we were looking for! Thanks, Dee and Cliff!
The place is clean and tidy. Plenty of towels for use - especially after playing and getting wet on the beach. We didn't even see or hear a plane. Also, the big lot allowed the children to run around freely. Although there isn't a washer/dryer on site, there is an affordable laundry service nearby. We would definitely stay here again!
Our family of 3 thoroughly enjoyed our summer vacation in this sweet, quiet, and secure spot. The airstrip was a fun bonus for our 3 year old and the few planes we saw were in and out so quickly and at reasonable hours that we almost missed them! The home was just right, very clean, fully equipped and enough space to enjoy our stay. The owners were available to answer any questions and we would definitely recommend this place to a friend. The dogs came to say hello and then were on their way so we felt comfortable. The quick 15 minute walk to the beach and boardwalk style bike/walking trail was also great so we could walk or bike to town if we wanted and stay off the Hwy1. Can't wait to come back again. Thanks Dee and Cliff.
Property was very clean and looked exactly like it was advertised. Great for 4 people or less and much better than staying in a hotel room. Property is located right outside of town so very convenient. The airport runway is not an issue - only small planes come in and out and we only saw about 3 planes over several days. The owners were very easy to work with. We enjoyed the Skunk Train. Owners recommended a great Mexican restaurant in town in their guest book - can't remember the name but it was really good.
We just loved this cottage...comfortable, extremely well kept, convenient location to beach and town--we love walking on the beach. Owners hospitable and very accomodating. We would love to return someday.
