perfect beach house get away

  • 5 of 5

The house is right on the beach. We loved having easy access to the beach for our kids. The street is quite, very minimal traffic, sunsets gorgeous, climate great.

The house has lots of updates. The pictures show it brown but it has been painted and is blue. Inside was nice. New floors, paint and nice decor. It was pretty clean on arrival, although we did re-clean the bathrooms because they could use a little TLC. Overall impressed. Any questions or concerns response time was amazing. Within minutes we had a text message or email to most questions or concerns. Dani was great to work with. BBQ, SPA and everything in the house was great.

The state park for Tide Pools and whale watching was within a mile (a nice walk along the park trail in front of the house).

Fort Bragg was only a few miles away. We also enjoyed Mendocino. We took a drive up to the redwoods state park about 2 hours away.

I would recommend to all and would stay again.

Thanks for a great stay

Another perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our third visit to Sea Dream and I hope it won't be the last. The house is so well set up and comfortable that there was nothing else we needed. Fort Bragg has so many things to do that we didn't even scratch the surface. The Kids were so happy just playing on the beach and poking around the tide pools that we didn't even make it to the redwoods. Hopefully next time.

Absolutely beautiful!!!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family & I stayed here for four nights. The property was exactly what we wanted and needed. The owner was even let us check in early which helped us to have an extra day. The house is only about a 2-3 minute walk from the beach. There was also very little traffic on the street and an awesome Sandhill play area in the back of the house that the kids had an awesome time with. There were 7 adults and 8 kids & it never felt over crowded. I felt as though there was plenty of space. The sand dollar suite was great too in that it added extra space and was worth the extra money. The house was perfect!!

Awesome Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

There were 7 of us for a long weekend in April 2016. The home is as wonderful if not better than the photos, I especially LOVED the decor, a true beach home. The location is spectacular and we had a wonderful time. Everything you need is adequately provided with stores nearby however we brought too much food and wine. The home and property is very large and well maintained and we never felt crowded. Something for everyone to do, lots of walks even with severe winds one day. Lots of seal moms with their pups on the beach south of the house. Beautiful deer in the back yard every day. The fire pit out back is large and a great way to wind up the day. The spa is indoors and very relaxing. Everyone raved about the house and the beds. Yes, all of them very comfortable and better than home! We met Dani and she was just wonderful. Even in bad weather we were still happy to sit inside with all the huge windows and watch the sea and sky. We all highly recommend this rental and are sure we will be back. Thank you!

The coast is full of life and beauty whether experiencing it directly or just viewing it. The nature in this area is beyond real and just offers a new world for those who don't experience the Pacific Coast often.
