About Amanda Dutra

My family and I have owned this property for more than 30 years and continue to enjoy time spent together here. I have always enjoyed gardening and take pride in finding unique garden art and birdhouses to add to the landscape.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cabin and location was wonderful. It was well prepared, clean and very comfortable. The view was amazing, both from the porch and living room and the walks to the beach, the lighthouse and the seal rock. We were in Fort Bragg Saturday and decided to go back to the cabin early just to enjoy it. Carole's Cozy Cabin is everything promised and more! Thanks for a great stay.

Perfect location and Well Equiped Cosy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The place was lovely. There was a nice view of the water, a fully stocked kitchen, clean freshly made beds in each room, and plenty of kindling and firewood for the wood burning stove which kept the place toasty even in the rain. We appreciated the little touches and felt super comfortable in the house. We also enjoyed the walks to the beach and lighthouse. The cabin is a 5 minute drive from Downtown Mendocino and 10 minutes to Ft. Bragg. Couldn't have been more convenient. Our phones did not work at the house, but I enjoyed the fact that there was less wireless signal floating around and we slept great.

Great Vacation Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This location is scenic, quiet and cozy. Worth every dime, great value! Off the beaten path; beaches, kayaking, hiking, biking, fishing, bird watching, botanical garden, and even shopping are close! The hardest part was deciding if we should leave the comfortable house looking at the ocean view to explore what the area has to offer! We will definitely be back!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed there with our two children (ages 4 and 6) and had an absolutely wonderful time! The cottage was so comfortable with everything that we needed to feel at home. Plus the yard is so beautiful and our kids had a lot of fun playing around the house. The house is in a perfect location -- just between Mendocino Village and Fort Bragg-- and within walking distance to the lighthouse and the beach. We spent our days exploring beaches and state parks and then came back to enjoy evenings by the fire. We're so glad we decided to stay here for our vacation!

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

Great location for a family long weekend. Cabin is fully equipped, hot water was never an issue unlike you experience in other cabins due to limited resources. Walking to beach and Cabrillo lighthouse was an awesome experience. Sighting of deer, rabbit, turkey was an exciting experience especially for my son. Not having cell coverage did help a lot to enjoy the nature and the wifi kept us in touch enough to keep the stress away :-)

Great Place

Great place, big, great grassy yard, great garden, great walks, nice private beach, great views of the ocean from the cliffs, well taken care of, well-stocked kitchen, plenty of firewood to keep you warm at night. Beds were comfortable. Great place.

Location and comfort supreme!

  • 5 of 5

Great location with the ocean, hiking trails and lighthouse steps away from this, cute, cozy cabin. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed, a real cooks kitchen! We loved the yard with the flowers and artistic details. We can't think of anything negative to say and would definitely book again! Tl
