Rent a room in The Sea Sanctuary, a beautiful home which has everything you could desire in a place for a relaxing getaway - fireplace, hottub facing the ocean, 180 degree ocean views, great kitchen, piano, and miles upon miles of beaches to stroll just outside the home. A seal colony lives just 1/3 mile to the south and migrating whales can be seen from the home during the winter and early spring. The home normally rents out for $400-$450 / night for groups wishing exclusive access to the entire home.
This listing is for one of the two rooms downstairs available for rent, a formal bedroom which has a nice queen size bed and a view facing the ocean. The other room for rent, a lovely Japanese-style meditation room with sliding shoji screen doors and traditional tatami mats on the floor and a queen size futon can be seen in a 2nd listing here on airbnb. There is a full bathroom available for use downstairs which will be shared if the other room is occupied.
If you rent both available rooms, you would also have sole access to large open yoga/exercise area with 2 additional futons for sleeping and the full bathroom mentioned above. Groups larger than 4 pay an additional $15/night per person. If you are a group of 1 or 2 and would like sole use of the downstairs area, I would rent that to you for $30 less than the total rate for the two rooms
You are of course welcome to share the common living areas upstairs including kitchen, living room, hot tub, decks, etc.
As your host, I'll definitely respect your desire for privacy, or perhaps we can spend time conversing if that seems to be what the mood presents.
If you are into cooking, the kitchen is fully stocked including Vitamix, KitchenAId Mixer, oven, mircowave, etc.
Price includes an 11% local tax I pay to the county.
I do rent the entire house under a separate listing here if that is of interest to you.
Ted was a welcoming host and helpful with our short stay in Fort Bragg. He has a beautiful home with an amazing view--I loved sleeping to the sound of the crashing waves. He has all these wonderful reading nooks and there was a great calm energy about his place. I wish we stayed longer to enjoy the area.
The house was beautiful, and Ted was a great host. Very respectful and friendly. My gf and I only stayed one night, but the room/area was amazing and totally worth the multi-hour drive!
Our weekend trip was way too short. The house and location is beautiful and relaxing. Ted was such a great host -- we had a great time sharing stories and he is respectful and generous in sharing his home. Looking forward to our next trip up. :)
What a wonderful home! Ted's home is spacious and beautifully designed (by Ted himself). Ted is a fantastic host, friendly and warm but at the same time he was very respectful of our privacy. We arrived on a rather drizzly and overcast day, but made the most of relaxing in front of the fire on the comfortable window seat (which has fab views of the ocean) and the hot tub was a lovely surprise too. We would love to return and definitely recommend to all!
This was my first time using Airbnb and I had a wonderful stay this past weekend. Ted is a welcoming and friendly host with lots of interesting stories from his past. The Jacuzzi on the balcony was the absolute best part about his house, it has a view of the beach and makes the entire stay worthwhile. This listing is perfect for those looking to find a getaway retreat away from the urban life.
Ted was a gracious and accommodating host and his house was lovely. Watching the sun set over the pacific while sipping champagne in the hot tub was certainly a major highlight of our trip.
I stayed in Ted's incredible beachfront abode with the intention of having some time to reflect in the new year. Ted's home speaks to his creative, thoughtful and down-to-earth personality. I felt welcomed upon arrival as well as while cooking, sitting in the hottub, and singing with him at his piano. We shared wonderful conversation about travel and our shared ancestry. The bed in the front room was super cozy. The beachfront setting and dunes are absolutely magical! No whale sightings for me, but it's the type of environment that you can imagine those large and lovely creatures making their home. I didn't want to leave. There is a great path that runs along the beach, and I recommend you bring your bicycle if you like to ride. I highly recommend you stay here whether its for rest, connection or rejuvenation :)
I'm pretty sure we hit the airbnb jackpot with this place! Simply amazing house, right on the water with a hot tub perfect for star gazing. Comfortable bed and plenty of room in the open flow house. Very peaceful & lovely! Ted was equally hospitable and made our stay easy and care free. I only wish we could have stayed longer at the Sea Sanctuary.
Ted's place was the perfect sanctuary for a couple of nights as we passed through Fort Bragg. The bedroom we stayed in overlooks the sand dunes and ocean and was extremely comfortable. The house itself is beautiful. I wish I could duplicate it back home! Very peaceful and homely, yet spacious with plenty of room for us, Ted, and a couple of other guests.
Ted is a really lovely guy and very welcoming. We enjoyed chatting about photography and food. We would definitely recommend staying here!
Ted has a beautiful house in a serene setting. There are unobstructed views of the ocean, easy access to a beautiful, deserted beach. The kitchen was well-stocked, and we made good use of it. Hot tub was perfectly hot and felt good after a long day of wine tasting. Definitely a great escape for the weekend. Would love to go back.
