This newly remodeled cottage (2012) called the 'Surf Breaker' will provide you with a sunny deck, ocean view or cool shade from the redwood trees. Listen to the waves crash and the seals bark as you are sitting in the hot tub, playing horseshoes, or relaxing in the hammock. On the cool coastal nights you can enjoy the indoor fireplace. The house has two full baths, king size bed and a cozy reading room with two twin beds. For those 'gourmet chefs' there is a brand new gas range and a fully stocked kitchen. It is a 5 minute walk (3/4 of a mile) to a private beach (free access.) The cottage and the beach are both near the Anchor Bay Village. A short drive to the Point Arena Stornetta California Coastal National Monument.

This home was a perfect base camp for us and our two active teen boys. We put on lots of miles zigzagging up Hwy 1 and cross country to see many state parks, local beaches, scenic overlooks, etc and ended up each day back "home" for movies, supper, and comfortable beds. The one downer was a lack of phone service and spotty internet, but it was good too to unplug the kids from their Instagram and Snapchat and enjoy time in nature and family time. The road is scary steep to get there, but worth the view of tall redwoods and the distant sound of the waves. We loved the hot tub, the hammock, and the space to spread out and relax after a day of adventure. Nearby must do's: kayak/canoe the Gualala River with the guys from Adventure Rents, visit Bowling Ball Beach at low tide (not marked well, ask a local), and Russian Gultch State park- hike to the waterfall! Thank you!

Well stocked video library
Beach access is drive-in or a strenuous walk
We live nearby, and chose a local vacation spot to limit travel time. Really enjoyed it. Beach was great, the walk back up the hill a bit of a challenge. Mostly we just hung around the house. Great stop, would definitely go back.
Lovely cottage nestled in the Redwoods. Far enough from the ocean to get away from the occasional coastal fog.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay here. The house has everything you could need. But the kitchen appears to be setup for tall people, I'm 5-1 and needed my husband's assistance getting glasses out of the cupboard. And with arthritic knees, the hot tub was a bit difficult to step up to the deck it was on. But the upper deck was very enjoyable, we enjoyed the warm sun, cool breeze and wonderful sounds of nature. We will go back,!
Home was set back from the coast in such a way that the quiet was almost overwhelming. It was a perfect destination for serenity and relaxation. We enjoyed the amenities as described, particularly the hammock and hot tub. That said, the hot tub is a little on the small side and is tucked beneath the deck. I would absolutely recommend the property for anybody seeking a break from it all. Gualala is an adorable town and complimentary access to the Anchor Bay campground was a definite plus. Sally made herself available for questions at any time and made us feel welcome. I plan on returning to the North Coast region very soon!
Our family of four really enjoyed staying at this vacation home. It was the perfect "home-base" from which to do all of our hiking and exploring of the area, from Sea Ranch to Point Arena and Irish Beach. The heaters and the hot tub were heavenly on cold days in the wind -- warmed us right up. The fully-stocked kitchen was easy to use and kept us from having to eat out much at all! We loved peeking at the ocean from the deck, hammock, and living room. The rental was super clean and well-laid out, with great local books to peruse and tons of helpful info in the binder from the owner. We felt quite pampered and you can tell the place is well-loved. We'll definitely be recommending to others!
