We were apprehensive about "Lighthouse traffic"visiting the point on Fri,Sat,Sun as the road to gift shop/lighthouse tours goes right in front of all units.Not to worry-winter hours are from10-3:30 every day. Sunrises & Sunsets all to registered guests since gate is closed on off hours. Only 6 families rentals available.We stayed in Head Keeper's Quarters#1. A two bedroom,one bath setup with full kitchen and 6 chair dining table with awesome unobstructed views to crashing waves behind unit-these are by far the best view direction. Our unit had the only view of lighthouse from inside a unit @2 twin bedroom.Kitchen utensils,dishes,coffee,salt&pepper,microwave,coffemaker,large refrigerator,vented stove were all in top order. Wood stove was a romantic requirement as the two electric could not "keep up" without the supplement of roaring wood stove. Point Arena provided the best mix of kindling,small logs,split/dried wood,newspapers I have ever seen in a rental unit.The sheltered wood supply lasted us three days of virtual non-stop burning. We almost by-passed this property due to two night minimum on week-ends. With per night @$200 plus $50.cleaninf plus 11% tax=$$494. However a special was in effect through March 31.(later extended through April 15.)Buy 2 nights,get one free. So 3 nights for $494.= @$165. per night.The property is tranquil,quiet,remote,no cell phone service,no internet service(received e-mail from Point Arena @two weeks before our reservations re:a snafu with internet provider. It was in local papers.That being said-The good. Now for some concerns. Our unit had been "cut up" to make three separate accomodations. From the lighthouse view window in twin bedroom you could hear guests as well from the 1 bathroom,could hear guests from hall leading to back door.Could hear 2nd set of guests from dinina and g table. Could see this 2nd set of guests leaving their back door right in front of our dining picture window which did NOT have any curtains or rods. We attached a blanket in front of every night.The check-in office also bordered our unit on two sides. The walls were thin.Heat capacity was marginal. Initial smell and appearance was of "old state parks" from the 60's and 70's.The sofa and sitting chair were covered by inadequate slipcovers. The advertised "dish" tv was not working upon arrival.We arrived@5pm. Not a human being from property on site at all. Once again 10am-3:30 PM.I was able to get "dish"to work after some reconnecting of wires. Remote was held together via large rubber band. Hot water in kitchen sink takes a very long time to get warm/hot as does the bathroom sink. The bath/shower does ok.. This is a unique place. The units deserve some updating and better upkeep.Uniqueness and location can only carry a po
