Overview

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 4

Dune Flower is one of 4 homes known as the Mendocino Coast Dunes Retreat. The nautical theme of this barn-like "Guest House" begins outside and invites you to enter.

A cozy bedroom alcove and bathroom is to your left with the gas-log fireplace in between facing the living room. The living area is open and spacious, charmingly decorated to put you in a beach-combing mood.

If you wish to follow that train of thought, take the path leading to the MacKerricher State Park and Beach at the end of the private road. Once you make the trek (15-20 min.) to the dunes, you'll be greeted by the panoramic view of pristine dunes and ocean views--great for quiet walks, picnics, and communing with the natural beauty of your surroundings. You can even bring your dogs, though a small nightly fee applies.

Come back to Dune Flower and enjoy the fire-pit outside (firewood is not provided). This little "getaway" is perfect for a single person or couple.

About Vacasa, CA - Northern California Coast Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.

<br>

<br>

Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.

<br>

<br>

Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Great potential, great location, but place needs a lot of TLC

  • 2 of 5

The location was great, and the place itself is very cute with great grounds, but that's where it ends... the only appliance that worked was the hot plate (we didn't try the coffee maker). We knew there wasn't a full kitchen, so we came prepared, but the microwave didn't consistently work (we got it to work once), and the fridge just froze our stuff, regardless of the temperature setting. The furniture was very worn (the couch had tears all over), and unclean feeling, and the shower was really hard to get in and out of because of a misfit door. The hot tub was also broken and the deck is definitely falling apart in places. It is a really cute place, but the lack of upkeep and working appliances had us wishing we had stayed elsewhere.

Great potential, but place needs TLC

  • 2 of 5

This place needs a lot of TLC, especially in functioning appliances... there is no real kitchen, only the hot plate works, the bed is full sized, not a queen. The furniture is old (i.e., futon couch cover is torn in multiple places, stained and gritty chairs). The location is great, and the place is really cute, but really neglected.

Owner's Response: We're sorry the guest appeared to be surprised as to what amenities are available. The bed is advertised as a double, and the pictures show a coffeemaker and a hotplate.

Nice little house for a small family on a budget

  • 3 of 5

This is a cute little house for a small family of 3-4. It's on a quiet street with lots of room for kids and animals to run around outside. It says there is beach access from the property but, if you can access the beach from there, we're not sure how. We walked 20 minutes toward the beach and almost got lost in rolling sand dunes, 20 feet high, and still no closer to the beach. Don't let the sound of the waves in the distance fool you into thinking you can walk down there with your kids, drive a short way north to McKerricher State Beach instead. Beautiful spot. As for the house itself, it has most everything you need (although no regular oven or range) and is comfortable if a little rough around the edges. Wouldn't recommend it for more than one family because the usable space is essentially one room with a tight alcove with a curtain for a bedroom; not much room or privacy. A pleasant stay overall and an affordable option for the area.

Owner's Response: It takes about 20-30 minutes through the dunes to reach the ocean (it's just over half a mile from the house). Thank you!

bring much bug spray for the mosqitoes, don't buy anything that needs to be frozen and mark your way from the trail to the beach so you can actually find it.

Quiet spot - Perfect for a weekend away

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Dune Flower. It's small, but totally fine for the two of us. The utensils and kitchen equipment is limited (mini-fridge, hot plate with two burners), but we had read about this and planned our meals accordingly. The location was quiet and convenient. A bit far out of Mendocino (25-30min), but close enough to Fort Bragg and any of the spots we wanted to be. We particularly enjoyed walking over the dunes to the beach in the morning and soaking in the hot tub under the stars at night. Thanks for the great getaway!
