Paradise Was Found!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, Vizsla doggie-daughter, and I enjoyed a long weekend at Paradise Found and we were more than impressed! This home is so lovely -- spacious, well-appointed, and created just the right amount of hygge/coziness for our very stormy weekend. The views of the ocean are absolutely mesmerizing. The hot tub was a lovely added touch and the private beach access make this for an amazing weekend. We will definitely be back! The owner, Cindy, was always in touch with us and so, very helpful! We fell in love with the little town of Point Arena! Thanks again -- we couldn't have had a better weekend:)

A perfect seaside getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is, by far, one of the most wonderful rental properties we have ever found! A gorgeous setting, with amazing views - and the house itself is sheer perfection. Immaculate, comfortable, spacious - with every amenity one could hope for. We can't wait to come back again and again!

Beautiful home near the beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a great 4 day stay at this beautiful home. The sunroom was wonderful. Just wish we had more sunny days while we were there. The wood stove worked well and we enjoyed the warmth especially during the two days of rain and wind. From the pictures we expected the house to be on the beach side of Highway 1, instead it was on the inland side and very close to the road. The highway noise did not bother us though. We visited Ft. Bragg and Point Arena and found neat places to go. The local grocery had everything we needed for our meals and the kitchen was well equipped. Cynthia was very responsive to the two small problems that we had. The beach was a beautiful place to walk, managed it on the one day that the sun was out. Hot tub was wonderful. Overall a good place and a nice break from the usual.

Relax and enjoy this beautiful beach house.

  • 5 of 5

Paradise Found is the perfect name for this beautiful house that welcomed us to relax the minute we opened the door. The beach themed decor throughout the home let us know we were on vacation so no stress allowed. The owner's clever displays of shells, driftwood, sea glass ... were cleverly placed making it fun to discover them as they caught our eye. It is very evident that this home was lovingly furnished making it hug you with warmth. A handy notebook to guide guests in using the home was very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this relaxing retreat.

Cozy, Beautiful Views, and a Well-Appointed Kitchen

  • 5 of 5

I was a bit nervous when picking a place as I was planning to propose. I needn't have worried as Paradise Found certainly lives up to its name. It was wonderfully cozy, from the warm beds to the hot tub to the wood burning fireplace. What's more, you could enjoy all of that cozy warmth with a beautiful view of the ocean. I proposed to my girlfriend in front of a roaring fire and we were able to have our coffee the next morning as fiancé and fiancée in the sun room watching the sun come over the mountains and light up the beach.

The kitchen itself was also wonderfully appointed with a wide variety of pots, pans, utensils, etc. There was even quite a bit of oils and vinegars and spices and the like, though we didn't use them as I had brought pretty much everything we need. That said, it was a wonderful kitchen to work in and I was able to make a feast of fried chicken, black eyed peas, and brussels sprouts easily and effectively. For anything additional we might want, the supermarket cum hardware store less than 10 minutes from Paradise Found is quite well stocked.

So, beautiful views, wonderful cabin... the only thing left is the surrounding area. We explored beaches mainly, from the nearby Irish Beach to Schooner Gulch and Bowling Ball Beaches a bit further south. We hiked out at low tide and had a great day exploring the tide pools. We also planned to go to the Point Arena Lighthouse, but didn't have time. We had to settle with enjoying its beacon of light from the hot tub as we relaxed at night.

As a bonus, the owner Cindy is an excellent host and provided great customer service. I always had the information I needed at the right time to enjoy the place.

Overall, it was a great vacation with a perfect home base in Paradise Found. I would highly recommend it to anyone from couples wishing to spend some quality time together to family or friends looking to appreciate the beauty of the Northern California coast.
