Disaster! Be forewarned! Why can't I rate 0 stars?
This house is so pretty on the outside, and we were really happy when we arrived and saw it, the location, view etc. However, after one shower in the upstairs master bath on day one of our stay, a leak developed, dripping through the ceiling into the downstairs hallway... beginning of a 5 day vacation marked by multiple maintenance worker visits, the opportunity to watch how black mold grows (yes, across the hallway ceiling just above our cooking area), and with 7 people using one tiny downstairs bath (shower there also with plumbing problems requiring another maintenance worker visit). I am sure that the owner of this home knew about these issues, and I would be concerned that repairs are thorough and that the home is safe/healthy. I would NOT rent this home without proof of work, removal and repair of all wet/moldy drywall and ceiling material, etc. Actually, I would not rent this home period. Additionally, we were quickly promised a partial refund within 5-7 business days of our stay and guess what? Three weeks later and nothing. Life is short, this house was expensive to rent after all the tacked on fees, and no one has time for this inconvenience after what is supposed to be a relaxing vacation. Friends we were travelling with stayed at the Beachcomber Motel up the road and had a lovely, less expensive and trouble free stay. That's where I'll be staying when I return to Fort Bragg next Spring.

We hope to have another chance to impress you.
Our stay was fantastic
Wonderful location, lots of space to sprawl out! Gorgeous ocean views! Fun had by all!
We had a family of 9 adults, and the different levels suited us. The master bedroom has an attached sitting room, which has been converted into a bedroom, so there is not much privacy between the two, so should be considered when planning. The downstairs family room has a couch that opens to a bed, which needs to be replaced. The springs were poking through the mattress, and it was very lopsided and uncomfortable. My daughter and her husband ended up sleeping in a pile of blankets on the floor. This should be considered if someone in your party plans to use it. Other than this, it is a really lovely space with room for everyone.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback following your stay. We have passed along your suggestions regarding the sofabed to the manager. We look forward to hosting you again!
Great place to stay in Fort Bragg
Lovely home with great ocean views in Fort Bragg. Convenient to get anywhere but still in a quieter part of town. Clean and spacious with enough privacy in rooms but great common areas as well. Loved the patio. Suggestion to put some chairs on the roofdeck too!
Almost too big!
Fun spaces. Comfortable furnature. Lovely view. Great trail to beach.
Spring vacation at Sea Mist
My daughter and two grandsons, and I stayed at The Sea Mist for one week. The house was great for the four of us. It had plenty of room inside and out for the boys to really move around. The kitchen was great, Since my grandson has food allergies, we have to cook every meal at home. Your home provided all the utensils that we needed to cook. We also enjoyed watching movies every night of our stay. The views from the front windows upstairs and down of the ocean waves crashing against the rocks was stunning. Also, the colors from the sunrise and sunset were beautiful. We loved watching the jack rabbits running in circles. Also, the dozens of deer just walking through the properties around us. We enjoyed walking down to the private beach not far from the Sea Mist. Having laundry facilities was a plus. The house is situated close to Ft. Bragg and other beaches and the many walking bluffs around the area. We had a great vacation.
