“A Magical Place”

My husband and I wanted a special place to celebrate my mom’s 90th birthday and this was the right place. We had a wonderful memorable vacation at this lovely rustic nautical cabin. There are wonderful views from the living room, the bathroom and both bedrooms, with full wall windows in all the rooms (except the bathroom, although still a large window). Even with the full wall windows, we felt we were in very private space. We slept with the drapes open so we could see the brilliant stars in the night and wake up to the beautiful morning light and cliff, rock and ocean views.

We loved spending time on the deck, enjoying a glass a wine, playing dominoes, or just starring out into the vast ocean. We were excited to see whales from the deck.

We quickly felt at home in this comfortably styled and furnished cabin. We could see that a lot of love went into putting the cabin together with all the wonderful detail.

The kitchen had all the pots/pans, utensils, dishware and glassware needed to cook and serve meals. We loved the fireplace in the living room. There is even a sauna (which we did not use).
Richard and Shelley were very helpful, great communicators, and a pleasure to work with. We did not get to meet them on this trip, but I hope we get a chance to meet them on our next trip.

We were happy that our AT&T cell phones worked without a problem, but there is also a land-line at the cabin we were able to use for domestic calls. There is WiFi, however, it is slow WiFi.

We look forward to returning to this magical place.

“Cabin 5 was a great time for all”

Recently, my family and I spent 5 glorious days at Cabin 5 in Gualala, CA.
The view was as great as advertised, right above the ocean.
My wife enjoyed the crashing waves and we all enjoyed the weather immensely, always in the 50's and 60's, since as soon we returned to Texas, the heat and humidity kicked in.
In fact, we're making plans for our next trip to experience Cabin 5 in the near future.
The cabin reminded us of one of our Alaskan cruises on the rear of the ship, and the water and waves we always enjoy.
Now, we won't have to spend a small fortune for a suite on a ship, to experience the same feeling we just enjoyed last week at Cabin 5.

This place is awesome! Beautiful views from almost every room - bedrooms, bathroom and living room. The deck is the perfect place to enjoy the beauty with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.

Cabin had a fun rustic, nautical theme. Quaint and cozy. Had everything we needed.

This cabin is in the premier spot on this site. The views are awesome from both bedrooms and living room where we watched the sunsets. The beds are very comfortable. Although the kitchen is small it worked very well and served our needs. If a fisherman you can cast off the deck to the ocean below...right below the deck. Could not be happier with our selection!

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.
