COCHITO - FORT BRAGG, CA
Welcome aboard the USCG Cochito. This is the perfect anchorage for
your Mendocino Coast adventure. Make yourself at home! Named after
a ship that owner Stephen Dunlap’s son Emmanuel served on in the
Coast Guard, this large-scale tiny home offers luxurious lodging, access
to outdoor activities, and fantastic amenities.
If you want to stay in, you have entertainment options and two floors
where you can kick back and relax. If you want to set sail, you have easy
access to the beach, restaurants, Noyo Harbor, and the best the
Mendocino Coast has to offer. The water is a short walk from your front
door. (You may even see our local Coast Guard ships passing by.) The
Mendocino Coast has a thriving art and theater scene, award-winning
cuisine, and an abundance of fun expedition opportunities, including
kayaking, biking, and hiking.
When you stay at the Cochito, you’re the skipper, and you set the
course! Whether you prefer hills, redwoods, the ocean, or all of the
above, we have it here. You’ll return from leave relaxed and refreshed –
and ready to come back to the coast again.
The Cochito is situated in Sportsman’s Park in the historic Noyo Harbor,
where we have multiple vacation rentals available, so you can even
enlist the whole crew to come up. You’ll have a blast watching the
fishing boats go out in the morning and come in at night, and the lively
harbor offers plenty of opportunities to go wildlife-watching, strolling,
By the end of your stay, you’ll feel like a local. And, after falling in love
with the coast, you’ll be planning your next trip back here before you
even get home. We’ll see you at the seaside!
Note: The loft in this unit has a bedroom and TV area but the ceilings are very low, about 4 feet high.
Noyo Harbor is an active, fully operational harbor, and is the first such
harbor north of San Francisco Bay. It was first established as a port for
logging and fishing back in the late 1800s.
It’s a great place to take a stroll and check out a historic, working
harbor up close. There is plenty to see and do (and eat). Noyo Harbor is
home to some of the coast’s best restaurants, all within walking
distance of your vacation home, so you have easy access to great food,
refreshing drinks, spirited live music, and more.
The harbor is reminiscent of the famous Cannery Row in Monterey,
with fisheries and a full marina with classic and vintage fishing vessels
of all types. The harbor is a wonderful place for seal-watching,
kayaking, or just sitting back and enjoying the foghorn and the coming
and going of boats.
There have been many classic movies and TV shows filmed here
through the years, including The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are
Coming! (1966), Humanoids from the Deep (1980), Overboard with Kurt
Russell & Goldie Hawn (1987), and the TV series Murder, She Wrote
The bed in the downstairs master bedroom features a luxurious top-of-
the-line queen mattress from FloBeds and cushy pillows to accompany
it. The upstairs loft has two beds with super-comfy full-size Tuft n
Needle mattresses. You can rest assured (no pun intended) that when
it is time for bed, you will sleep well each and every night.
ABOUT THE NAME:
The Cochito is named after the second ship Emmanuel Dunlap served
on during his ocean-going days early in his Coast Guard service. The 87’
Cochito ( Marine Protector Class ) performs Search and Rescue
operations along coastal waterways in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Since
then, Emmanuel has raised his rank and training to a more comfy desk
job, currently serving in Boston. The Cochito is dedicated to all those
protecting and saving lives while serving in the United States Coast
Now let me tell you about Dusty Dillion. One day in the spring of 2017, I
was having lunch next door at Django’s Rough Bar and was telling Dusty
about my new vacation rental business, Pacific Blue. He got off his
stool, grabbed me by the shirt and said “follow me.“ He led me to
Sportsman RV Park. Dusty told me I needed to get some park model
homes and place them around the park for vacation rental purposes. I
thought for a moment and then asked him, “what’s a park model
Over the summer of 2017, we began placing homes in the
harbor, and we continue the process today. A week before
Thanksgiving in 2017, Dusty was feeling poorly.
2 days later he passed away. A shock for all of us, to be sure. Dusty
is fondly remembered for his wisdom, wit, and love of the harbor.
He is dearly missed!
