Welcome to Cook Cottage--never before available as a vacation rental! With new owners putting finishing touches on everything, now is the right time to reserve your stay in this dramatic location. Practically everything inside is new, and very nice quality. The views are stunning from everywhere in the house, even the bathrooms!
Located on the edge of the bluff in Gualala, Cook Cottage is perfectly suited to a romantic retreat or a fun getaway for up to 4 adults. Furnishings include ample seating both indoors and out on the view deck; great electronics including flat screen TVs with Blu-ray players in living room and both bedrooms (cable in living room and one bedroom), iPod docking music tower in living area, and docking alarm clocks in bedrooms; high end Aireloom mattresses on the two king beds; and wifi throughout.
The thoughtful provisions extend to the very well equipped kitchen with fun accessories for those meals you never have the time for at home for instance, a Kitchen-Aid mixer, combination pressure/slow cooker, food processor, and more! There is also a large charcoal BBQ. The dining table is comfortably sized to hold the fruits of the chef's labors, and it's higher than normal to provide superb views even while seated.
The living room also enjoys a great view, plenty of seating, and options for relaxing with the woodstove, TV or just a great book or conversation. Also on the main living level is a bathroom with shower, and laundry facilities. Upstairs are the two bedrooms flanking the second bathroom which features a deep stand-up Japanese-style soaking tub and a stall shower. A hot tub is planned for sometime in early summer.
Cook Cottage is surrounded by wild natural beauty, and your sightings might include whales during their seasonal migrations, wild turkeys, deer, and many soaring and hunting birds like pelicans, ospreys, hawks and more.
Please note the access to the entry from street level is by a series of terraced steps. There is no beach or bluff access from this rugged location. Due to the high-risk setting, this home is not suitable for children or dogs.

This is our first time staying at Cooks Cottage and we were excited from the first time we walked in the front door and saw the view right out to the ocean.
The setting is spectacular looking directly down to the rocks and waves below.
There were 2 couples staying at the house and having two king beds was a treat.
The house is very well equipped with everything we needed. We cooked a couple meals and the kitchen is great and it had new appliances and cookware.
The location is very convenient to Gualala for groceries and beaches.
The only down side is you have to carry luggage and supply's down a stairway.
We would highly recommend it and we will be back!

My husband and I spent 5 days at Cooks Cottage in early October and loved it. We wanted a place directly on the ocean that was private and romantic and we certainly found it. It was our first trip to northern California and we fell upon Gualala by chance while looking for a place to stay. The home was so much more than we expected. Everything was new and the whole home was very clean and very well appointed. We had everything we needed to cook in or pack a picnic and take it with us for the day. The beds were exceptionally comfortable which was a major plus. The deck off the back was amazing and quite private. We spent evenings watching the unbelievable sunsets while listening to the waves crash below on the rocks. We really enjoyed hiking the bluffs, watching for seals,and discovering the beaches from Gualala north to North Point arena
We were able to easily walk into Gualala and discover what the quaint seaside town had to offer. It had just enough dining and galleries that we found plenty to do.
Dealing with Coasting Home was easy and they were very friendly and responsive to whatever we needed. It was handy as they were right located downtown Gualala. We have already given this info to family and friends and wouldn't hesitate to come back again!

If comfortable accommodations combined with spectacular ocean views are what you seek, then this is the ticket. My wife and I stayed at Cook Cottage for the weekend and it was nothing short of outstanding. The ocean is literally beneath you with unobstructed views. This is a great rental for anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of busy city life and kick back to enjoy the great Pacific coast. I'd give it two thumbs up and a solid 5 star rating.
