SAND DOLLAR AT MENDOCINO COAST DUNES, PRIVATE LUXURY & SPA

Fort Bragg House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Mendocino Coast Dunes is a short, six mile drive from downtown Fort Bragg. It is set in the heart of MacKerricher State Park, famous for its white water surf, big sandy beach, sea lion colony, sand dunes and many trails for hiking and biking. A short walk down our private trail gets you to the 10-30 minute just short of half mile walk across the fabulous dunes to “Ten Mile Beach” with its breathtaking views of the Pacific coastline.

The Sand Dollar is one of four homes available at the Mendocino Coast Dunes. This spacious one bedroom/one bath home features a large, open state of the art kitchen with a gas range and stainless steel appliances throughout. The living room is open to the kitchen and dining area. A gas-log fireplace accents the entertainment wall with a 43' flat screen TV. The very spacious master bedroom holds a queen captain's bed with a spacious sitting area including a breakfast nook. Two additional queen size futons are available in the living room and a second sleeping room off the master bedroom. The additional sleeping room has large, open windows facing the dunes with a second door to the outside patio. An open patio surrounds a private hot tub with dunes for backdrop and a year round fire pit awaits you. Access to the pristine dunes and beach of MacKerricher State Park is just a short walk via our private road. Pet friends are welcome with an additional deposit and “pet contract” pending approval prior to arrival.

Come enjoy this secluded property only minutes from downtown Fort Bragg, which offers additional activities, shopping and dining. Enjoy a pint at the legendary North Coast Brewing Company, catch the Skunk Train for a leisurely ride through the redwoods, and take a break from it all at one of the many restaurants or cafes Fort Bragg has to offer.

For the wine lover, don't miss Pacific Star Winery just right up the road a few miles. This winery is located on an incredible ocean bluff and offers many varietals of fine wines sure to please any pallet. Or make the day trip through the majestic redwoods to wine tasting with scenic views in nearby Anderson Valley. Roederer (famous for their sparkling wine), Navarro Vineyards, Husch Vineyards and Lazy Creek Vineyards are just a few of the wineries that can all be easily visited on a day away in wine country.

The charming town of Mendocino is also just a short distance south of Fort Bragg. Built on the rocky bluffs of the Pacific, Mendocino is a picture-perfect coastal village. Enjoy the panoramic ocean views while walking down Main Street. Check out the gourmet shops, local wines, delicious food, and the many art galleries in town.

The Sand Dollar is the ideal place for smaller families or a romantic weekend away. Reserve all four Mendocino Coast Dunes homes for larger groups. All four homes are wheelchair accessible throughout. Rates listed for the Sand Dollar are per FOUR persons with a small fee for additional occupancy and pets (6 persons maximum, two night minimum). Owner maintained/managed for over 20 years.

Mendocino Coast Dunes is managed by a local property management company whose staff is available to assist you with any questions that may arise.

Quiet and clean! Everything we needed!

We rented this place for a few day over Thanksgiving so that we could get away from all the holiday madness! We brought our baby and our 2 dogs. It was nice to find somewhere our dogs were welcome! The walk over the dunes to the beach wasn't too exhausting, but dogs are not allowed right there. There was an even better beach 1 mile up the road where dogs are allowed and it was beautiful! The house had everything we needed to make a few meals - but don't forget something to store leftovers in! The hot tub was great, we spent a lot of time in there while the baby slept! It was a nice homebase for the hiking and sight seeing we did!

Perfect place to stay wih a dog!

The house was perfect place to stay with a dog. We were a little disappointed there was no beach access.
The bed was a mattress in a water bed frame which made it hard to get in and out of.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your input and we are glad that things worked out well for you in general. This issue of the dogs not being on the dunes is completely new and is an extrapolation of no dogs on the beach (shoreline) which is general in California. We have been here for 26 years with no restriction at all. This new ruling- which makes no sense- is under appeal and hopefully will be reversed in the near future. The mattress on the Captain's bed is about 2" above the wood siding and with the steps it is generally reasonably manageable and we are sorry it was a distraction for you- - this is the first note of concern we have had on that since we have been here, but I will certainly see if there is something that can be done to improve it- perhaps we can add a narrow "eggshell" mattress for a little extra height.. Your comments are appreciated. We'll look forward to seeing you again.

If you are looking to stay at a home with everything and the kitchen sink, this is it! All you have to do is bring your clothes, bathing suit for the Jacuzzi, food, drink, bbq coals and lighter fluid. There was plenty of room for two adults and three teenagers. Beach was not even close, but that was ok, the house made up for it :) The house was six beautiful miles past town, so pick up what you need at Safeway on the way in. Flat screen tv and games kept the kids entertained. Yard was a good size and private, to host a bbq :) I will absolutely rent this house again :)

not an easy walk

The home is comfortable and owner responded immediatly when i said hot tub wasnt working. I will say if you want to take anything to the beach you might need a camel. The walk is not a 10 to 15 min walk it is a hard up and over sand dunes walk and if you are out of shape it hurts. You can't even see or hear the ocean for 30 min. Then a ranger informed us no dogs on that beach at all. She did tell us about a great beach about a mile and half from the house. We were disappointed we had to load up and drive to beach but it was a great beach and dog friendly.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry that you had such a tough outing. We are also gratified that you found Sand Dollar itself satisfactory and that the loosened hot tub wire got fixed promptly. Reading your journey plight we realize we need to mention the dune walk is not for everyone under all circumstances and that there are 4 other readily available beaches easily reached by car- more details will be available at each of our site location booklets-also bicycle trip opportunities. I am glad you ultimately got to one of the other nearby wonderful beaches. We have enjoyed the walk across the dunes for so many decades that we did not adequately describe how difficult it could be for others venturing under unanticipated circumstances. At age 83 I recently walked to the ocean water in 13 minutes- I no longer can run; in earlier days I would frequently continue the enjoyable course along the beach and Haul Road into downtown Fort Bragg- so enthusiasm can differ. An additional attraction of our dune walk is that Ingelnook Creek comes into the ocean there and children can play for hours- as our kids have- without a constant vigil on them or the ocean. But if lugging an ice chest or a crib or there are other significant encumbrances, the other nearby beaches reached by car are certainly preferable as you mentioned. Knowing your additional options we do hope you will come again to enjoy Sand Dollar and thanks for your comments.

Notes:
Fire-pit and sitting logs under the stars (Bring own firewood) Nestled amid the Dunes. The ocean is visible after walking to the top of the first chain of dunes. Reach the ocean by going down the private path at end of Beal Lane and a pleasant 10-15 minute walk over the dunes and unique coastal fen to the shoreline where you also will see Inglenook Creek coming into the ocean - a fun area for children.
