Enjoy this recently upgraded, cozy Fort Bragg bungalow, with its cheerful blue colors and comfy beach atmosphere. Relax in front of the woodstove, or take in the sunset from the front porch or patio. The master bedroom features a queen bed, warm down (or down alternative) comforters, and private master bath with custom tile and vessel sink. Reading lights and a romantic chandelier complete the picture. Second bedroom has one double bed, reading lights and dressers. A tall queen AeroBed can serve as a backup for one more. Start your morning in this sunny space adjoining the large, fully stocked kitchen. Second bath consists of shower with slate surround and floors, toilet and sink. Walk four blocks to Glass Beach, a treasure for sea glass. Or, take an easy stroll to downtown Fort Bragg where you can enjoy shops, galleries and restaurants. Check out the Skunk Train, a unique way to see the redwoods and take a step back in time. Bring your bikes and hop on the bike path adjacent to Glass Beach and ride north for ten miles to McKerricher State Park, a beautiful spot on the North Coast. For a different experience, drive 10 minutes south, to trendy Mendocino, famous for its beautiful headlands, art center, galleries, upscale stores and fine dining.

About The Owner

We are a couple with jobs in higher educaton and health care. We love to cook and eat, easy things on the North Coast. We love long walks,travel, photography, reading, spending time with our family. Now we're ready to share our special place with guests.

The Owner purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why The Owner chose North Coast California

Fort Bragg is just 2 hours from our home in Northern Sonoma County, far enough away to feel like we're on vacation, even for just a few nights. We've been renting places here for a long time, so we are very grateful to have one of our own, and to share it. Fort Bragg is a great mix of authentic working class folks, artists and folks who just love the ocean. The feeling of community is strong here.

What makes this bungalow unique

We love that we can walk out from the house and see the coast and hear the ocean. Or, our walks can take us downtown for coffee at Headlands Coffee, breakfast at Eggheads or a great dinner at Mendo Bistro. Winter on the coast includes delicious crab, cute hometown parades and unique shopping opportunities.

The perfect coastal getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house is SO amazing! Quiet street, ocean view/easy access, and walking distance to town. I spent five evenings here and enjoyed every moment. A very large, fully equipped kitchen and lovely, spacious dining area. Wood burning fireplace and VERY efficient heater. I was cozy and happy. It is exceptionally clean and beautifully furnished and exudes a very homey atmosphere. I was immediately comfortable and relaxed. I cannot wait to stay here again! Thank you for your very kind hospitality and clear, concise directions.

We love this cottage~

  • 5 of 5

We love this cottage.....the perfect get-a-way place in Fort Bragg. The cottage is filled with absolutely everything one would need for a week-end to a month long stay. Every convenience possible.....cable, wi-fi, towels, bath soap, shampoo, rinse, dish soap, laundry soap, kitchen spices, and the list goes on. The cottage is kept in pristine clean condition. The beds are very comfortable....We sleep better than at home. The location is within walking distance to Glass Beach/Coastal Path and really do not even need a car. After a long day outside, to come home to a fire in the fireplace and a pot of soup on the stove.....priceless!

Amazing Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Ted and Andi's Sea Glass Bungalow is absolutely darling. We loved all of the little details and the thoughtful touches throughout. It fit our family of 5 perfectly. We stayed for a month and wanted to stay longer. The location is ideal for exploring a lot of the fun features of the Northern California coastline. Sea Kayaking, Redwoods, Deep Sea Fishing, Sand Dollar Hunting and Tide Pools, we did it all. We even got in some boogie boarding in the surf. We will definitely stay there again if we make it back to Northern California. Thank you for the great stay! Being able to walk to the beach and bike and hike the headlands was great fun.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We (my mom (senior) and my two kids (age 10 & 11)) had the best time. The home was immaculate and had a gorgeous kitchen to cook in. It's perfect for a family of 4. Very close to Glass Beach which we visited daily. Found the home centrally located to many of the places we visited. If I have to have a negative it was the no screens on the windows which made it not easy for us to have the windows open. (bugs would fly in) But that is truly the only thing I have to say. Owners easy to work with, very accommodating, easy to get a hold of if I had questions. LOVED IT!!!!

We had an enjoyable stay. The beds were comfortable, everything we needed was provided. Great two bedroom house in convenient yet quiet end of town. Egghead restaurant for breakfast one morning was enchanting, great service and food.

Best kept secret no more....

  • 5 of 5

This is our 8th stay at the cottage. Always a delight! Bright and cozy... a wonderful get-a-way place year around. I use to think it was our 'best kept secret' ...but now it books up so fast..I am already thinking of next year. Ted and Andie really do care that their guests have everything needed for a nice comfortable stay. I could not get a window closed and within an hour, the neighbor was at the front door to help. Amazing! We always bring our own food because the kitchen has everything possible one would need.... including spices. Yes...we did hit the jackpot when we found this sweet cottage!
