GRANDMA'S SPECTACULAR BEACH COTTAGE

Manchester House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Perched on a bluff at the edge of the Pacific Ocean, Grandma’s Beach Cottage offers unobstructed white water views that cannot be improved upon. She sure knew how to pick em’ - this house could not be better placed! It is located inside the private gated entrance to Irish Beach’s exclusive beach access and looks right down the beach to the western most point of the lower 48 – the Point Arena Lighthouse. Grandma was very unpretentious and so is her house; she built the first home in Irish Beach with 3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, constructed of solid core redwood (no paneling here!) with lots of windows to soak up the view and a fully equipped kitchen. Grandma didn’t want us kids sitting around a TV when there was exploring to be done outside, nor was she going to be inside doing laundry. You will not find a TV or laundry facility in this house! She didn’t really know how to use a computer, but yes our house is equipped with wifi. I think Grandma must have been a romantic, because her house sure puts you in the mood. With a glass of wine in front of the fire and the constant sound of the crashing waves, honey by my side, well... I just can’t think of anything better! If you love long walks on the beach, and natures wondrous scenery I think you too will love Grandma’s Beach Cottage.

My fondest childhood memories were created at Grandma's beach cottage at Irish Beach where imagination and creativity are allowed to run wild.

My parents built this house when I was a young child and there was not another house in sight. I am so grateful to my mother for leaving this very special beach cottage for our family to continue to enjoy for years to come. We invite you to share our piece of paradise.

Inspiration, healing & rejuvenation, complete relaxation, connection to mother earth just for starters. Easy access to the beach cannot be overstated, why drive when you can walk?

FAMILY WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My father and I (I am 27 years old) picked this vacation rental out based on its affordability and the view and proximity it appeared to have of the ocean. We were looking for a place by the sea to spend a long weekend with my boyfriend and my brother who was visiting from the east coast. Grandma's Cottage did not disappoint!

The view was BEAUTIFUL. The unceasing roar of the ocean was just lovely to fall asleep to. Cute little place, reminded me a bit of an oceanside version of our family cabin in the mountains. Cozy nights were spent watching the darkening horizon with a fire in the wood-burning stove (fueled by earlier collected driftwood) warmed the house. We enjoyed daytime walks down to the beach to explore the driftwood piles and tide pools. Walks back UP were a little less fun, as the road is fairly steep, but it is not a long walk! To give an idea of the road/walk: us being moderately fit it was only a haul when lugging a beach-blanket full of wood back up with us. For those who cannot (or would rather not) make the walk there is a parking area at the bottom by the beach, so I would suggest driving down (slowly, it is steep/windy...)

The beach being private access made it feel as if we were some of the only folks on the planet. Very cool. Although I suppose we were there in the off-season (mid-March) so there were maybe less people around than there would be in the summer. Our drive to and from brought us through a beautiful redwood forest and Mendocino was not too far either. Nice location.

Everything was as described and maintained. The only thing we found to be out of service on our arrival was the wi-fi internet...we worried about this for about 30 minutes, then VERY quickly realized we were glad it was down. It was far more rewarding to be in the moment, by the sea, and with each other. Relaxing and freeing. I recommend pretending the internet is broken, even if it is back in operation when you visit! ;]

PS-use the binoculars to scan the horizon for whale sightings, we saw some spout action out there.

NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
Nothing beats Irish Beach and this house made it all the more enjoyable. I've stayed at easily a dozen different houses in this area and loved both the view this house offered and also the beach access (you are beyond the security gate, so you can just walk on down whenever you like).

I have a couple young kids too and the interior was very kid friendly.

If this place ever gets a spa I'll be doomed to never even look at another place - I doubt it will though as they keep the cost down by having renters clean up, which I loved, but I know spas would likely need more than just clean up over time. Regardless, loved it and am definitely coming back.

Owner's Response: I agree Jeremy, as a kid I loved being able to run down to the beach on my own and wave up to mom (Grandma) watching from the deck. The ease of not having to pack up the car and load up the kids, God forbid you forgot something! The constant roar of the ocean from the house that lulls you to sleep at night, for me there is no better place on earth! You are right, I do not see a hot tub/spa in the future. For us it is just keep it simple, silly :) View, View, View!

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE THE OCEAN

There's no place like the ocean
  • 5 of 5
Living in Lake Tahoe, we have pine trees, lakes, mountain vistas and clean air. The one thing I sometimes miss is the sound of waves breaking on a beach. Last weekend I just loved looking out all the windows at the beautiful ocean, watching the birds, the clouds, the people on the beach. It was just so peaceful at Grandmas Beach Cottage. We also took a tour of the Pt Arena lighthouse which we thoroughly enjoyed. Also visited the little neighboring towns, and checked out the tide pools at bowling ball beach. The cottage had all the comforts of home, I would highly recommend it.

SPECTACULAR WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! We had a fabulous time at Grandma's Cottage. I don't think words or pics can really capture the beauty of the view. The place was clean and comfortable. Everything we could have needed was there. There was wood already loaded into the woodstove for a nice, cozy fire. We found a nice little restaurant nearby for a romantic valentine's dinner. Private beach. Wonderful time with good friends. Thank you so much for sharing Grandma's cottage with us.

SUPER VIEW

Great view, nice beach access by car-steep and far for walking to the beach. Cottage kithen well supplied; internet access a definite plus; bring CDs, thankfully there is no TV; better lighting would help.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments Edward, I love the steep walk up from the beach but it definitely gets your heart pounding! I am working on some updating and do agree that better lighting would be nice, will try to work on that! It really is the view and that wonderful beach that makes this home so special.
