The deck and views were absolutely gorgeous! The cabin, although rustic in nature, was charming and extremely comfortable.The kitchen, although small, had everything we needed. Every room has an amazing view. Overall experience....amazing!

Liked best: The views and being right on the cliffs.
Liked least: Never returned our deposit and didn't respond to my inquiries. We left the cabin in really good condition so I am not sure what happened. I actually forgot all about it until just now while writing this overdue review. Booked through another site.

“Cabin 5 is serenity at it's best.”
Reviewed September 5, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

First off, please not that the owners of Cabin 5 do not have any affiliation with the surrounding Serensia cabins. I'll be nice and keep that comment as it stands.

It's been a few weeks since my stay and I have started to look for the next time I can book! It was the most relaxing place, with million dollar views, and an antiquers paradise. I'm not an antiquer but I could appreciate the love that went into the decor. I also could love the wood that was provided and the gas that was provided for the bbq. The hotdog holders and the firepit. The fresh air and the sea lion barks. The steep trail down to the secluded rock facing the river where one could plan out their future and evaluate all of their dreams. Most of all I appreciated the absolute inner peace that came to me while sitting on the desk at dusk - just me and the sound of the waves.

If you're looking to have a great relaxing place to unwind, this is your spot. Do yourself a favor and book it. You won't regret it!

“Wonderful stay in Cabin 5 on the Bluff.”

person found this review helpful

We loved our visit to Cabin 5 on the Bluff. The cabin was rustic but cozy with everything we needed. The beds were cushy and comfortable, but the highlight was the EXTRAORDINARY views!
Our thanks to the owners who were very helpful, offering detail information and local insights, including where I could pick up a great birthday cake for my husband.
We did explore the area, but quite frankly, it was hard to leave the house and the views.
Although Cabin #5 is pricey, I believe the view and serenity that came with that price was well worth it! We will return!

“Gorgeous View”
Reviewed April 11, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Cabin 5 on the Bluff has a gorgeous view with a wonderful deck to enjoy it on. We lived on the deck. It was so peaceful and serene. The beds were wonderfully comfortable.

The owners Richard a d Shelley were gracious and very accommodating, even offering to come over to build a fire.

Pictures don't do it justice. The house itself is a gem full of antique ship hardware and charm, and the view is incomparable. It's a very comfortable place to stay, too, with fluffy pillows and responsive central heat/air. I highly recommend it.

“Loved it.”
Reviewed October 9, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Very relaxing stay. Nice views of the ocean and bluffs. The bathroom is tiny, but has a large window which allows you to view the ocean as you take a bath or shower. The cabin is very comfortable, like an old shoe. After midnight, we sat in redwood lawn chairs and watched the burning orange/red crescent moon splash into the pacific ocean. That was a first for me.

“Delightful”
Reviewed August 11, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Really gorgeous scenery. Homey, comfortable, quiet, just wish I could have stayed there a lot longer. I would not recommend taking young children there because of the proximity of the cliffs. An infant or a child eight or older who doesn't have impulsivity.
