The 'Cottage at Sunset Cove' is a fabulous oceanfront property located on private grounds that are fenced with gated-only access 5 minutes from Mendocino Village. It is oceanfront, completely isolated, and has 2 acres of flowering gardens and walking paths, with parking on site. The shingled cottage/bungalow, which is entered through a rose covered archway, is an intimate hideaway. It is decorated like a 'country bungalow' in soothing blues and whites. Stone floors are covered with comforting area rugs, the sofa has down pillows, and a bistro table holds your welcome basket. The owners have decorated with artifacts from their travels, and have included in the cottage their love of classical literature and music, and local artwork. There is a beautiful gas fireplace and a completely separate bedroom with luxurious linens. Windows overlooking the gardens and ocean are large and everywhere. You can go to sleep with the calming sound of crashing waves on the double cove inlets. Peaceful and quiet, the area is a treasure trove for discovering wildlife - deer, wild turkeys, hawks, whales, blue herons, seals, porpoises, geese, and the occasional Orca. Russian Gulch State Park and Point Cabrillo Light House are less than 1 mile away, where nature walks abound. Mendocino Village, designated an official historical town circa the 1870's, is just 2 miles away, with wonderful restaurants and pubs, hidden garden paths for strolling, and specialty shops.
The cottage has a separate bedroom with large closets, luxury linens and 6 down pillows, living room with fireplace, queen-sized pull-out sofa bed, 2 comfortable reading chairs, and French bistro table. Teak reading chairs overlook the 2-sided deck and spa. There is also a large outside table and gas BBQ for cooking. The separate kitchen has dishes, glasses, pans and other cooking necessities and specialty items, and is stocked with beer, wine, bottled water, jams, coffee, tea and condiments. A basket of 'goodies' is added for late night snacks. Music, videos, books, games, binoculars will enhance your entertainment options. Bathroom has a powerful shower and a deep soaking tub with views of the gardens. Extra large windows from both the bedroom and the living room look directly out onto the ocean through the gardens, and are adjoined by a large deck with your own hot tub and seating for viewing the water and nature. Private gardens with paths surround the property and reading benches are sprinkled throughout the acreage. Best of all, there are sunsets 365 days a year (excluding rainy days, of course!) and you can view them all!
Because of the proximity to the ocean, this property is not suitable for children under 14.
