“Great view, but outdated and very dirty...”

The two good things about this property are the view and the price. However, there are many downsides to this home that unfortunately outweigh the good. You are greeted at the door with an old, musty smell (be prepared to smell like that until you return home and shower). Yes, the house is old. But some updates would make this home an even better rental worth more per night. It is in a great, quiet location close to both Fort Bragg and Mendocino. There is large wood paneling almost everywhere, which makes the home very dark and uninviting along with the low ceilings and lack of windows on the back side. The floor on the main and upper level is wood and brick. There is a large area rug in the living room. The furniture is not very functional or comfortable…3 arm chairs and a smaller loveseat would not accommodate the max occupancy of 8. One armchair is long overdue to be replaced, with ill-fitting patches on the arm rests. The decor is most likely original and highly outdated. Probably the most disappointing part of this rental was the dirtiness. My guess as this rental is considered "pet-friendly" because there was white dog hair EVERYWHERE - on the lone rug, the entire floor, stuck to the wood paneled ceiling in the kitchen (yuck), stuck to the pepper shaker I found in the cupboard, in my bedding. You name it, we found it there. And by the time we left, we were sneezing and covered with it. The floor-level TV didn't help since my two young boys just wanted to lounge on the floor to watch cartoons. Prepare to hear everything from every room while staying here. The upstairs room that looks out to the ocean does not have full walls, so getting to sleep while others are awake is next to impossible. Chilly nights when you'd like to wrap up in a blanket didn't quite work out since we were unable to find any additional ones. We were provided with 2 kitchen towels and 1 garbage bag for the 5 days we were there. Some windows would open but not close (hence those chilly nights where an additional blanket would be helpful). The deck was quite nice to sit and enjoy the sunset. The fireplace was perfect to make s'mores with the kids. The lower level was updated and very nice, with a much more comfortable bed than the others. Those of us sleeping upstairs did not enjoy the beds whatsoever. Would love to return if some things were updated and the house had a good deep-clean throughout.

We stayed four days in the house beginning of April and it was fantastic. The view from the living room on the ocean is just breathtaking. The central fireplace makes it very cosy in the evenings. The house and interior are old but everytthing is clean and functional. The art on the walls, the furniture, and the wooden wall panels match perfectly. We slept very well in the beds.
