No. You need a car or bike.
Other Things to Note
North of Fort Bragg feels much less congested but it's still close to town. The beaches from the cottage north to Westport and beyond never have many people. If you are looking for peaceful and serene, this is the place!
No pets, kids or more than 2 people.
This was my first Airbnb experience, and it exceeded my expectations. Zen Jewel was serene. Lindsay was very welcoming and gave us privacy. She was very open with communication prior to our stay and provided an ample amount of suggestions (restaurants and hikes). This was also our first time in Fort Bragg, so Lindsay's suggestions were greatly appreciated.
I highly recommend staying with Lindsay at the Zen Jewel Sanctuary. Ever since I got back home, I could not help but share the pictures of the beautiful design and landscape of the property with my friends. I would definitely consider staying with Lindsay again, and next time, we will make sure to take advantage of the fire pit.
Thank you, so much, Lindsay!
The Zen Jewel is a lovely place to stay. The garden is very beautiful and relaxing and the neighborhood is very quiet. The guest house was very clean and stocked with essentials. I particularly enjoyed the large windows overlooking the garden in the main room of the guest house. Lindsay was a very thoughtful host and provided us with lots of information on the surrounding area and suggestions once we arrived. I would highly recommend staying at the Zen Jewel if you are looking for a quiet relaxing place to stay.
Lindsay's "Zen Jewel Sanctuary" gave us a wonderful and relaxing place to stay. The landscape art is indeed magnificent and the house feels really cozy and has everything you need. We loved the shower! And finally, the dunes are just a 5 minutes walk away. We are already planning to come back!! Thank you Lindsay!
Lindsay was very welcoming and hospitable. :)
She provided us with detailed directions and recommendations about stuff to do in the area. The place was very true to the pictures posted. (Actually, the place was better than the pictures) The place is quiet and secluded. Perfect for a weekend of relaxation. :)
Our experience at the Zen Jewel Sanctuary exceeded our expectations!
The beautiful space and thoughtful design was exactly what we needed for a relaxing weekend. The sanctuary had everything we needed from cooking supplies to a diverse selection of reading books. With the floor to ceiling windows, you're able to enjoy the beautiful gardens and listen to all of the nature happening around the area.
Lindsay provided directions and numerous local tips about the surrounding towns, which helped us as we were ready to explore. The house was walking distance to the sand dunes and led us to a secluded beach where we were able to collect handfuls of sand dollars.
We look forward to making this trip a regular thing!
Lindsay's home and property were wonderful! The house was super cozy and the gardens and short walk to the dunes were perfect for our weekend away from the city. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook dinner every night. Listening to the frogs by the pond right before we fell asleep was a perfect ending to every day. We will certainly be back!
