Marebello! Beautiful accommodations, clean, comfy, attention to detail. We experienced stunning sunsets, breathtaking ocean viewing from the west windows, playful seals and timid wildlife on the private grounds. A Slice of Heaven!
My boyfriend and I stayed here for four days and we absolutely loved every second of it! Fort Bragg is our favorite place to stay along the coast so when we found this spot we new we had to book it:) The view was amazing, we spent most of our time out on the back deck enjoying the ocean view and the hot tub at night was super relaxing. Also there is a way down to the beach and if you go at low tide you'll find starfish and all sorts of ocean creatures, it was a truly amazing stay. We hope to come back next summer!
We wanted a location that was oceanfront so we could enjoy the ocean and watch for whales. The description was fairly accurate, although I would say getting to the tide pools could be dangerous for someone who isn't very physically fit. The walkway down is too dilapidated to use. The very efficient Rennai heater and large shower are exaggerated descriptions. Overall, we were happy with Marebello because we came for the view. For future travelers, here are the pros and cons of Marebello.
Fantastic view from inside and from the deck
Definitely an oceanfront accommodation
Restful location Very nice deck (only 30 ft, above the ocean)
Nice tile floors
Nice big, thick towels
Good water pressure
Fairly well supplied kitchen
Roar of the ocean to lull you to sleep
Good place to watch whale migration
Bed mattress needs replaced (it sags to the middle with two people in it)
Comforter and bedding are slightly worn, seemed to need laundering (housekeeper should rotate several sets so they can be laundered after each renter)
Ceiling fan only works with the light on so you can't sleep with it on
Sliding glass door needs a strong person to open/close it
Sliding glass door handle needs replaced
Shower head hits a 6ft. man in the neck and isn't adjustable (short woman can only stand under the water or get sprayed on the head)
Microwave is located on top of the frig (out of reach and unsafe for short people)
Window blinds can't be raised, you can only open the slats
Rennai heater could barely keep the place warm enough by early morning
Another note for others: The rental has a common wall with the main house and the deck joins. The Marebello deck is still fairly private and it seems they don't rent Marebello when the main house is occupied.
