About Tim and Kathy Gaughen


We recently relocated to this beautiful community from the Big Island of Hawaii. We lived on the island for 35 years where we raised a family and fully enjoyed the island style of living. When we retired, though, we knew it was time for a change.

Back in California after all those years in Puna, Volcano, and Kona, we now enjoy the proximity of children, grandchildren and extended family.

Tim and Kathy Gaughen purchased this house in 2011

Why Tim and Kathy Gaughen chose Fort Bragg

Like Kona, Fort Bragg is a spectacular Pacific Coast community. This property offers space, beauty, redwoods, wildlife, and comfort.

Rejuvenate on the beautiful Mendocino Coast. Hot tub in a Grove of Redwoods
average rating of 4.814815 based on 81 reviews

Beautiful, and you can't beat just sitting in the hot tub, under the redwoods listening to the ocean

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful stay with my grown children & Grandchildren. I would have liked to have stayed longer, and wish that I hadn't gotten sick while there (thank you babies with colds, lol). We were able to cook all of our own meals and have family dinners at the table which was nice. I would have liked to have had a softer bed, but next time I'll take a cushion. And trust me, there will be a next time!!

Had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

There is a very nice hot tub enclosed by large tress, very nice. The upstairs bedroom had enough space for two cot beds in addition to the very comfortable king bed. The kitchen was small but had all the utensils and cookware we needed. The two downstairs bedrooms allowed our adult kids more privacy (and us as well).

A wonderful family time!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay! The house was clean, well equipped and very comfortable. We enjoyed many beautiful hot tub experiences, cooking in a very well equipped kitchen, watching MSU beat Washington State on a great t.v., being in a fantastic area where we hiked, took in the sacred silence of red woods and the powerful experience of the ever present ocean, etc etc etc. the one draw back to the house was its weak and sometimes inexistant wi-fi, which I'm sure many people would relish, but having two teenagers in our group, it was a bit of a negative. Also, cell phone reception was poor. But once again, not a big negative.

Thanks for a great stay! Barbara and family

Awesome, home away from home. The hot tub was the most peaceful place we have been in a long time, especially in the rain. We are probably going to be making this a yearly trip for football season every year.

Perfect getaway spot for a group a friends

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Chateau Cleone. The property was well kept, clean and though in a neighborhood offered enough privacy for an intimate weekend. Walking distance to the ocean. Hot tub surrounded by redwoods was fantastic. Thanks to our hosts for hassle-free check in.
