POOP DECK – Fort Bragg, California
AHOY, MATEY! You can’t always be sailing the 7 seas. Drop anchor and enjoy your time in port at this perfect pirate’s hideaway! Rest up from your pillaging and plundering, relax, and have some fun here on the beautiful Mendocino coast.
While you’re here, kick back and find quarter at the POOP DECK, our newest luxury travel trailer in the heart of historic Noyo Harbor.
Kayaking, canoeing, hiking, biking, surfing… you name it, we have it! You’ll never be bored while you’re here. You might even find some treasure at our local shops. (Just remember, X marks the spot!)
Whether you’re kicking back after a long day on the beach (its hard work, but somebody’s gotta do it, right?) or you’re taking a break between adventures, the POOP DECK is a great home base.
It’s a relaxing refuge where you can unwind and rest up for the next day’s adventures. The main bedroom has a queen bed, and 4 bunk beds are located on the opposite end of the unit. They all have top-of-the-line mattresses that are custom-made locally, so you’re in for a great night’s sleep!
This 37-foot-long trailer has around 319 square feet of interior space and a maximum capacity of 2 adults and 4 children.
IMPORTANT NOTE: There are 4 beds in this unit: a queen-sized bed at one end and 3 bunk beds on the opposite end. This unit is perfect for an adult couple with kids. The bunk beds are small and will not be very comfortable for adults or tall people.
Since this is a working harbor, the sounds of harbor life might not suit light sleepers, but if you like unusual environments and new experiences, then you are in for a treat! Let the barking seals, the soothing harbor foghorn, the boats coming and going, and the lapping tide lull you into a blissful and calm state.
This unit is located in the Sportsman RV Park in the heart of Noyo Harbor.
Noyo Harbor was first established as a port for logging and fishing back in the late 1800s. It is an active, fully operational harbor, the first such harbor north of San Francisco Bay.
The harbor is reminiscent of the famous Cannery Row in Monterey, which includes 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.
Once you’ve worked up an appetite, you can find plenty of fine and casual dining options within walking distance of each other. You can’t go wrong with the delicious fresh fish, caught by local fishermen and prepared by talented local chefs. (Excellent vegetarian dishes are always available, too.)
There have been many classic movies and T.V shows filmed here over 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 T.V series Murder, She Wrote (1980s).
DEFINITION OF AN ACTUAL POOP DECK
In naval architecture, a poop deck is a deck that forms the roof of a cabin built in the rear, or "aft", part of the superstructure of a ship.
The name originates from the French word for stern, la poupe, from Latin puppis. Thus the poop deck is technically a stern deck, which in sailing ships was usually elevated as the roof of the stern or "after" cabin, also known as the "poop cabin". On sailing ships, the helmsman will steer the craft from the quarter deck, immediately in front of the poop deck. At the stern, the poop deck provides an elevated position ideal for observation.
On modern, motorized warships, the ship functions which were once carried out on the poop deck have been moved to the bridge, usually located on the superstructure in the center of ships.
STUFF THAT'S GOOD TO KNOW
THIS RENTAL IS LOCATED IN AN RV PARK IN THE HARBOR
This rental is located in a classic, old school RV park that have been in the harbor for decades. I personally think that is adds to the rustic harbor experience but there are some who do not like being in an RV park. Please look through all of the photos on this rental so you can get an idea of what the park is like so you can make a personal determination if this is right for you .
UNLOCKING THE FRONT DOOR
Using the door lock : When you arrive, go to the black key pad on the door, press the corresponding numbers for the code itself. After you press the last number press the unlock button in the image in the center and wait 5 seconds. You will hear a chime indicating that the door is unlocked. Proceed to pull the handle and the door will open.
IN THE HOUSE
This rental is all about getting away from it all, the unit does have WiFi but NO PHONE in the unit. The beds are all custom made and are super comfy. There is some super cool ceiling mood lighting as well as a small deck to get out end enjoy the sounds and feel of the harbor.
There are garbage cans for the trailer park at the inside entrance to the park on the left side when looking back from the unit.
There is only room for one vehicle which can park directly beside the unit. If there is need for a second vehicle, please reach out to us so we can try to accommodate if possible. Since the parking is right behind the unit and there are other units close by, please try to be as quiet as possible early in the morning and late at night. Thank you !
