We loved spending a night here for our anniversary weekend! Having never been to Mendocino, it was a delightful and lovely getaway experience. The place is very tiny and cozy, but so thoughtfully arranged- fresh coffee, hot shower, even dvds (we watched Walk the Line). Really close to Mendocino, and a fun property to walk around with our dog, hot and perfect outdoors tub and amazing tree swing! Daphne was had everything clean and ready for us, and and it ended up feeling really private, and we felt very welcome. We had trouble with the wifi, but that was fine- it was nice to just unwind :)
Amazing little garden cabin, indeed in the middle of a redwoods forest. Great waking up with the view of the trees. It is about 15 min east of Mendocino but totally doable to go for dinner or shopping. The cabin has everything one needs and it is super quiet. Though Daphne was out of town, everything was organized and ready for my arrival. Thank you for the great night!
Charming and cozy cabin. Beautiful and peaceful property. Stellar location from which to launch day long Mendocino county excursions. Daphne took great care to welcome us and go out of her way to accomodate a special request. We appreciate her and the space.
Daphne and her sweet young hound dog daisy came right out to meet us when we arrived. She was able to allow us an early check in to drop our bags, but it turned out we didn't need it. The property is very, very quiet and Daphne is a gracious kind host.
If you're new to Airbnb like we are note that you should mention that you want her to provide breakfast for $10/per before you arrive (or at least mention it when you arrive). Also be sure to take the airbnb app with you on your phone so you have the directions, house rules and house manual all near by. For some reason this is hard to see on the desktop.
Note also that for all practical purposes there is no wi-fi or cell phone service. this is not a deal killer for us as we think of this cabin now as our "escape pod" from San Francisco. Our dog loved running around with Daisy, who is a sweet, loving, and gentle dog. She's also a great tour guide on the big property, taking us to a cool look out on our first night. If you're a foo foo city person consider this your invitation to relax and get dirty. :D
There's a giant vat of clear cucumber water waiting. Total silence. you can read, meditate, sleep, watch an old movie (she provides a pile or bring your own dvds). Turn off your damn cell phone, tablet, and laptop and talk to each other. Walk with your dog in the woods and enjoy his joy at sniffing so many glorious new things.
The hot tub was fantastic and plenty private. The cabin was snug and quiet, the bed comfortable and en suite bathroom complete. Breakfast was hot and delicious on a tray. We couldn't have asked for a better escape from the city noise, traffic, and grind.
Pro tip: get a pizza in ft bragg, then bring back to your room to nuke in the micro and drink wine so you can enjoy the hot tub to its fullest.
This is a place to shut the phone off, tune the world out, and rest your weary bones. Thanks Daphne, Rich and Daisy, we can't wait to escape to the words again soon.
This cabin is adorable! It was cute and cosy, and even had a little mini fridge which was great for us, we also appreciated the coffee and tea set up! We did a lot of hiking and exploring, so we didn't spend much time at the cabin beyond sleeping, but it was tidy and comfortable. The swing outside the cabin was awesome, and provided a great view of the stars! I would definitely stay here again.
We had an awesome time in the woods at Daphne's cabin! Total privacy under the stars and the hottub was a huge perk. We were only 10 minutes away from mendocino but felt very far away. We hiked the property with our dog and will definitely be back to stay!
