Serendipity

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 14, 5 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms. Dogs allowed.

Fort Bragg, CA 95437 United States

Serendipity and all it offers is truly inspirational. This is a fantastic four-bedroom vacation rental along the ocean, the beach and 10-Mile River north of Fort Bragg. The spacious home offers lots of room to roam with 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths and lots of pullouts and room to sleep up to 14 people. But there’s more - a fun-filled game room, fully equipped stainless-steel kitchen, a separate guest cottage right on the property, a private hot tub, and breathtaking views of the California coast - making it the perfect setting for your next family reunion or holiday gathering! The home is ideally located across the street from beach access (at 10 Mile River & Seaside Beach), just five minutes away from whale watching and collecting sea shells at MacKerricher State Park, 14 minutes to antique shopping and restaurants in Fort Bragg and if you want to stretch it a bit, just another 8 minutes down the road to Mendocino and don't forget the hot tubing right outside your back door on a 24 foot by 24 foot redwood deck.
The home will instantly relax you with heated tile flooring, a gas fireplace, a large chocolate-leather sectional sofa with a chaise lounge, and enough space for all your guests to get cozy. A stained glass window depicting life undersea becomes the beautiful focal point of the open-concept living room. The carved-wood media center offers a flat-screen TV, CD player, DVD library and player, and cable. Just around the corner, a separate entertainment nook has a second TV with a Nintendo Wii - so from family movie nights to gaming marathons, you can create memories in even the dreariest weather.
A fully-equipped, stainless-steel kitchen will allow you to serve guests in comfort… or, if you prefer, someone can serve you in comfort. Kitchen accessories include a dishwasher, French door refrigerator and ice maker, double sink, oven, and stove. The kitchen island will keep you from brushing elbows while preparing the big meal, and three bar stools around the island for relaxing and visiting with the chefs of your group. The early risers can enjoy a large pub style table with 4 chairs next to large picture windows to catch a peek at the outdoor wildlife. Just off the living area is a formal dining room and table for ten. The garage has been set up as a game room, offering 2 red leather futons, a wood table for six to deal out a game of Texas Hold 'Em, a foosball table, a ping-pong table, and plenty of storage space for your beach bags and mountain bikes. Outdoor games such as volleyball, horseshoes, and croquet are included. When game time's over, lounge outside in patio furniture on the deck or in the private hot tub, open a bottle of wine, and watch as waves crash into the shore and wildflowers rollick in the wind. The charcoal grill and private hot tub will allow you to keep the fun outdoors and take advantage of the fresh ocean air. The 3,200-square-foot home and its cozy cottage sleeps 14 guests. The first Bedroom is the Master Suite with a California King bed and a queen size sleeper sofa with upgraded mattress, it has a huge bathroom with a large jetted tub and luxurious over-sized shower. This room connects directly to the outdoor redwood deck as well. The second bedroom offers a queen-size bed, and private patio access. The third bedroom is more like a spacious nook including a queen size bed, a large couch and a TV. The fourth bedroom has a trundle bed that makes out into two twin beds. These rooms share 2 separate full bathrooms with showers. The separate cottage offers a wonderful spot for a couple or a small family who might prefer a little extra privacy. In the cottage, there's a king bed, a queen sleeper sofa with upgraded mattress, and a half-bath, There's also a cozy gas stove and cable TV, so if the cottage's occupants don't feel like socializing with a big group, they can still relax and enjoy their own private getaway. It’s “Serendipity”. (please note there is an additional charge for use of the cottage if the number of guests is 10 or less) To see all photos and details visit our website.

    David M from Los Alamos, CA recommends this vacation rental

    My group of old divers have now used this house for two years running and find it to be one of the best we have rented in the twenty plus years of doing this annual dive trip. It is well equipped, very spacious and in a great location. A little pre-planning is required since it is a bit of a run to go to town for supplies. The management company did a great job and provided clear instructions and management of the financial transaction.

    Cheebo F from Olympia, WA recommends this vacation rental

    Other reviews are right, the photos really do not show how fantastic the home is. The spaciousness, comfort, amenities and small details that the management provide really make the vacation rental stand out. On photos, the home appears small but it is very spacious, tons of room, bed availability, bathrooms and the added feature of the cottage is an extra that is so worth it. You can be close and you can have privacy at the same time. The location is so perfect! Awesome views, distance from neighbors, the trail to the beach is wonderful (short) and leads to the perfect location to spend water time. They have obviously put a lot of time into the details of providing all of the necessities. The number of towels, blankets, sheets shows you they don't skimp on anything. The beds are comfortable and the layout so great. The game room in the garage is a HUGE plus for children of all ages to enjoy - video games, card games, traditional games, ping pong. The outdoor shower was fantastic. The hot tub was so accessible and the BBQ grille was put to use. The large table outside and the huge dining room and table inside made shared meals so easy. and the large living room space lent to good family together time. We've done vacation rentals all over the states and this one by far is a gem and I really appreciate that it made our family time so awesome. Rave reviews by our children and visitors. I have no qualms highly recommending this home for your future stays and we already want to schedule to come back.
    Plenty of parking, very clean, spacious.
    Don't forget the radiant heated floor for added comfort.
    They set you up with information and a packet that lists restaurants and tips.

    Serendipity was nothing short of amazing. The open layout was perfect for our large group and the game room kept the kids entertained the whole trip. The beach is accessible right across the street and the neighborhood is quiet and friendly. The kitchen was fully equipped for cooking dinners each night and there was no shortage of dishes for all of us. Can't wait to return!

    The Serendipity home was more perfect than we expected. The home was very clean, the furniture was nice, the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen had everything you would ever need. The hot tub was relaxing. The game room was awesome. The lawn area out front was a perfect place for the kids to fly their kites. The view of the ocean from the home was magnificent. The staff was extremely helpful and answered every question promptly before our trip. I would and already have recommended this home to many friends. We stayed four nights and would have loved to stay longer.

    Having all the kids together for a couple of days was just what I needed. The house was wonderful - fully equiped kitchen, hot water, friendly neighbors. The one exception was the internet - one guest had homework/test to take care of - after phone calls - the internet was reconnected and homework accomplished.

    a guest from Camarillo, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We had 4 married couples and 1 single adult for a reunion in October. Our #1 purpose was to be together. Everyone was happy to have their own bedroom unlike other trips. This location is about 4 miles to the closest restaurant, Mexican, which was yummy and about 10 miles to the town of Fort Bragg. The property was in excellent shape. Since everyone had "devices" it seem to be a drain on the internet accessibility so it was very slow and frustrating to people use to getting their daily updates of email, news, etc.
    One of the bedrooms had to use the other bedroom to go through to access the rest of the house unless they went outside and around.
    The Property was described accurately just a bit confusing when we got there to see how it would all work out. The master had it's own bathroom and one bedroom had it's own. The 3rd bathroom opened to the twin bed room and the laundry room which was the way the other bedroom residence had to enter the bathroom they shared.
    We had nothing but good contact with the manager.
    Our family enjoyed playing ping pong, watching a movie, walking down to the storming sea, eating at the Purple Rose Mexican restaurant, walking around town, seeing Glass Beach even though it was very windy and just enjoying the time together.

    The house and cottage was perfect for our group of seven guys. The living room was large with plenty of seating and there are plenty of beds for the whole group. The kitchen was very well stocked with plenty of utensils and very nice appliances. Overall it was by far the best house we have rented in the twenty years this group has been coming to the north coast. It is close enough to town and the dive locations to be convenient but not feel like you are surrounded by the town.

    Vacation house was beautiful and well kept. The pictures posted do not give it credit. The view from the hot tub on the master bedroom side was amazing. One of the fun things that I wasn't expecting was the telescope in the living room. Both nights we pulled this out to stargaze and look at the planets. The weekend ended way to soon, I did not want to leave.

    We had an excellent time. Plenty of room for everyone. Things that should be looked at between customers. Batteries were dead in at least three of the remotes. The directions for the propane stove in the guest house do not match the remote provided. We never did get it to work. Air mattresses on the folding couches need to be checked for leaks. All in all a very delightful stay. Furniture was comfortable, kitchen was well stocked and the ocean was a short walk away.
