About Heather Douglas

We have lived in this little coastal town for 13 years now and are excited at the opportunity to share it with others. I am a nurse at our small community hospital and my husband is a wildlife biologist. We have 2 kids and a dog (Kona) who we named our cabin after. Our family enjoys exploring the coast, hiking, biking, as well as attending many of our unique community events. The world's largest salmon barbecue in July and the Ugly dog contest during Labor Day weekend are some of our favorites.

Heather Douglas purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Heather Douglas chose Fort Bragg

We fell in love with this property because of the close proximity to town, but "in the middle of nowhere" feel it has. It is set at the end of the road and feels like you are in a forest. It has the feel of a campground but offers the comforts of home just inside the door. Our kids have loved exploring the property and beyond in Jackson Demonstration State Park since we purchased it. In the fall we collected baskets of wild mushrooms and in the spring discovered wildflowers popping up everywhere.

Kona Cabin in the Redwoods
average rating of 4.9607844 based on 51 reviews

The Kona Cabin is first rate.

  • 5 of 5

Every detail you need for a vacation rental is afforded you. Heather and Robert are most excellent hosts who have thought of everything. Wonderful kitchen completely stocked, comfortable furniture, great heating unit, motion detector lighting indoors and out, many soft comfy blankets abound, fabulous shower, great bed and bedding. We loved it all but have to say our very favorite was the availablity of "Dog Survival Kit" which was more than appreciated by our 16 year old boy, Trouble. It's quiet and serene and just a short distance from town. WE highly recommend it, and will most assuredly be returning.

The property is amazing

  • 5 of 5

We love this place. Kona cottage is nestled in the Redwoods but only a short drive to the beach. This is our third time visiting and will return again. The cottage is clean and comfortable and very dog friendly. Out two dogs love relaxing on the porch or under the trees.

I definitely recommend Kona cottage.

We loved our stay at the Kona Cabin.

  • 5 of 5

What’s not to love? The hosts have thought of everything. It felt like home. We had a wonderful weekend in Ft. Bragg exploring the beaches and watching for whales. During the rain the cabin was extra cozy. We are looking forward our next stay at The Kona Cabin.

We live in Oakland, CA and usually fly out of SFO

Charming place, thoughtful landlords.

  • 5 of 5

One of the nicest places I've ever stayed in (I'm 77 and do a lot of traveling). Great kitchen, great lighting, spacious, great bed, lots of closet and drawer space, a smart TV (we watched Netflix). The landlord left fruit for us.

The landlord was quite accessible and very responsive when we had questions.

A bit out of the way, but very well worth finding

Large piece of property with redwood trees, fire put and two different porch areas to sit outside.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. Close to many things to see, or just a quiet place to relax. Loved the property and all the things Robert and Heather put in the cabin to make it comfortable. The little things like a bottle of wine, some Bailey's Irish cream, along with fresh fruit in a basket. There are blankets to toss on when the temperature drops, games, puzzles and toys for the very young. A wonderful cabin in the woods!!

Very clean and welcoming! Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this stay immensely! We stayed here as a hub to explore Northern California. We loved waking up to coffee on the porch by the redwoods and taking mini hikes around the property with our infant.

Visit the new coastal walking trail at Glass beach with awesome views of the rocky coastline or explore the beach for treasures discarded years ago now transformed into beautiful sea glass. Learn about the history of the prior logging town which used what is now Glass Beach as the town dump. For more history you can ride the historic Skunk Train which makes trips inland among the redwoods and back. A short drive to Anderson Valley offers a friendly wine tasting region with award winning boutique wineries that specialize in pinot noir and Gewürztraminer.
