About the property

2 bedroom contemporary cottage with hot tub on 5 acres of ocean front views

THE VIEWS DO NOT GET BETTER THAN THIS! This photo was taken from the dining room table one evening. We recently have been watching the Whales from the same dining room table. The commanding views are breathtaking, whether from the home, the hot tub, or walking along the beach or picnicking on the bluff. Watch the ocean transform from sunrise to sunset, with the Lost Coast framing the horizon. Enjoy a romantic or family stay in our contemporary home on 5 ocean-front acres. In the evenings enjoy the glass-front wood burning stove, or watch the stars and listen to the ocean from the comfort of the hot tub. Walk along the many beaches stretching along the Ocean, and enjoy the tidal pools, seals and vistas. The property shares the private beach shown in the photo, and has it's own private cove, accessible at low tide and known for the sea glass to be found in its sands.

The seaside village of Westport is only a half mile away, and makes for a pleasant walk. There is a small store in the adjoining campground with essentials, and a quaint store in the village. We are comfortably far from shopping malls and fast food, and very close to the ocean waves and the stars.

Oh, and did I mention that the views are great from the hot tub?

About Dan

Bay Area professional, with a lifelong love of travel

Dan purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Dan chose Westport

It takes my breath away every time I look out at the Pacific Ocean surf rolling into the miles of California coast visible from the cottage windows. I would love to share this with you.

What makes this cottage unique

Peaceful setting, with incredible views of the interplay of ocean and light from dawn to sunset. Walk for miles at low tide through the pristine Nothern beaches past acres of tidepools. When the surf is up, watch from the bluff top, hot tub or dining room table as the ocean sings its song.

This is a NON SMOKING house.

A Real Gem

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage is very nice, and delivers exactly what it promises in the description. It's a sweet spot along the northern California coast with a very laid back feeling and all the amenities you need in a modest beach cottage. We loved cooking and eating in the well-equipped kitchen with the fantastic beach and ocean views and found things clean and in working order throughout. The wood stove and the hot tub added to the charm of a relaxing and fun get away vacation. We really didn't want to leave - and know we will return.

Absolutely perfect ... Amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this place so I could get away from my office and have some quiet time to do some writing. Dan was sooo accommodating and was there whenever we had a question . The best part of this place was the amazing ocean views and the bluffs! The beds were sooo comfy it was like the beds at a Marriott hotel. The kitchen had all you need and the wood burning stove was glorious especially cause it was all ready to go and Dan supplies everything you need. The only drawback for my hubby and was there is only a television in the bedroom. It would be nice to have one in the main room all cuddled up by the wood burning stove cause it was super bowl weekend . I was in the hot tub 4 out of the 5 nights and the stars above and the crashing waves made for an amazing experience. We really can’t say anything negative . We know some people have complained about the road to the campground below and the cars going by were irritating but “ get over it!” The campground is far enough away where you feel like you have the place to yourself . Thank you Dan for sharing your home with us. I really enjoyed sitting at the dining table with a clear view of the ocean and hearing the waves crash as I wrote. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful hidden getaway on the coast

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this cabin retreat on the north coast very much. The area is beautiful and you can't get any closer to the ocean! Views for miles and when soaking on the deck hot tub you can only see the bluff and ocean. There is a nice picnic table on the deck as well that over looks the bluff which is a treat for coffee and wine.

The place was very clean and orderly. The wood-burning stove was already set up for us to light which was a nice touch. The kitchen is well appointed with anything you would need for cooking.The view from the kitchen makes doing dishes a treat! The best part for us truly was the hot tub which is clean and hot and with the fresh air and views can't be beat. The bedrooms are clean and spacious and beds were comfortable. There is 1 TV that is in the master bedroom (no TV in the main room.)

The cabin is situated right off of Highway 1 which is very convenient. The road is also the entrance to an RV Campground but that is all the way down the bluff, but there is some RV traffic on the road outside. But you can't see the road when inside the cabin or on the deck. It is remote other than that but there is one place to eat- a wonderful little pub about 2 minutes down the highway 1 in Westport called the Abalone Inn that we enjoyed very much for lunch and dinner.

We hope to return some day!

Amazing views, cozy, comfortable and clean!

  • 5 of 5

Great spot for a little get away. We loved that it was outside of town and that it was near a campsite. We used the kitchen, fireplace and hot tub and both rooms! The master bed was an amazing night sleep! Do add this cottage to your next trip to the north coast!

Inspiring, remote paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a remote & quiet spot on the coast and boy did we find it!

With stunning view from the dining room, deck, bluff & hot tub... we could not have be happier!

The cottage is well equipped and comfortable, a perfect place to wake up and end our days of exploring. The authentic wood stove was utilized through-out as we visited in December, it did the trick and warmed the cottage quickly. The hot tub was clean and restorative.

The beach was of course the highlight as we spent countless hours exploring and finding treasures! Although remote in a sense, it is only a short drive to Fort Bragg & Mendocino which are lovely seaside communities.

We also enjoyed the best coffee found at the small local grocery store, just half a mile away and were happy to find a coffee grinder available at the cottage, as we had not realized we had bought beans instead of ground coffee. So thanks for that as well...

Overall Dan's cottage is a great place and I would not hesitate to recommend to others or return!

Thanks for everything,

Betsy & Alex Pare'

Killer views

  • 5 of 5

Loved the views and the hot tub on the deck. Place was clean and fairly well stocked with what was needed for a week's stay. Warning, all the floors are Kattywampus heading in all directions, so if you are unsteady on your feet, you need to be real careful. Otherwise it was nice
