Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Fort Bragg, Mendocino County, California
Among rolling dunes and just seven miles north of Fort Bragg, CA, The Sand Dollar will make your beach vacation dreams come true. There’s even a private hot tub!

With the ocean just over a half-mile away over walkable sand dunes, this dog-friendly Mendicino cottage couldn’t be in a better place. At MacKerricher State Park, seek out seals and otters from the trails.

Watch cable TV or watch DVD, play board games, or sit quietly by the fireplace in the living room. Complimentary WiFi is also available.

In the full kitchen, you’ll have all the tools needed to whip up simple meals and save a little money while on your vacation.

Six guests will be accommodated here among, as well as dogs. Just note that there is a pet fee. Curl up in the queen-size bed in the bedroom or one of the two fold-out futons.

There’s also a private washer and d...

The cottage was very clean and well-appointed. It was certainly a roomie enough for a few more people. There was lots of natural light. The hot tub is private and hot and worked really well.

It was an incredibly quiet neighborhood. The half-mile to the ocean was more difficult than it sounds it is over lots of sand but it's really beautiful.

I would be happy to come back to this Cottage and recommend it to anyone wanting a roomie quiet place to spend time. It is quite a ways out of Fort Bragg.

Management response:

Thank you so much for taking the time to tell us about your experience, we appreciate it more than you know. We are so glad that you enjoyed the hot tub and that ever-so-beautiful (and long) walk through the sand to the water. We hope to host you again in the future!

First, the nuts and bolts. This is a quirky house - if, like us, you are an extended family, some of you will end up traversing the bedroom of some others of you to go to bed and to go to the bathroom. The sun room, which is the bedroom off of the bedroom, is quite lovely. The instructions to use the futon included putting king sized sheets on it - but there were only queen sized sheets (lots of them mind you) available. And the ants - tiny, but annoying - cheerfully marched under the threshold of the front door every minute of the 4th-8th day we were there. I phoned about this and was told that someone would be around to do something about it, but that someone never showed up.

Now, past the nuts and bolts. This is an absolutely lovely part of the Northern coast of California. The sand dunes are spectacular. We walked them every night down to the beach. A good work out and something we'll never forget. Our grand daughters were in heaven. And they absolutely loved the hot tub...

Management response:

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We hope you had a great time with your family! We apologize that the ants were not addressed during your stay and will do our best to rid the house of them, and we will also remind housekeeping to leave king-sized sheets in the home. We are glad to see that you...
