A cute little retreat at the end of the road in Irish Beach
During our son's recent spring break we had the opportunity to spend nearly two weeks on the Mendocino coast, at the peak of the northward grey whale migration. Considered off-season--and come now, is there ever an "off" season here?--we were given a daily rate offer we just couldn't refuse. This is our second recent visit to this home, and confirmed that our first visit wasn't simply influenced by the pleasant surroundings, although that'd be hard to deny. It really is a nicely appointed home, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, plenty of storage space, and a wide-open floor plan--all packed into perhaps 1000 sq ft. It contains nearly everything needed for a family vacation: plenty of dishes, knives, cookware, glasses--even quite a collection of wine glasses. A Weber kettle on the porch allows for some special meals (you'll need to supply the brickettes). The master bedroom is light and roomy, with a balcony, walk-in closet, and lovely walk-in shower; the washer and dryer located behind the curtain in the master bath is very convenient. The home sits up off the road, as far away from Hwy 1 as you can get, so it's very quiet, with very little traffic; only an occasional owner with dog! The view is pretty impressive, too--backed up to tree-covered hills and plenty of huge cypress nearby, there is a blue water view from the west which results in wonderful sunsets. TV, DVD player (no blu-ray), fireplace, overhead fans all add to the pleasant ambiance. The sofa and lounge chair in the living room are quite comfortable for sleeping on as well. The only annoyances we experienced were the hair-triggered smoke detector which sounded off several times, and the soiled carpeting in the master bedroom, a "gift" from a recent previous visitor, which will require replacement. But these are minor issues; the home is a nice, peaceful retreat which will make for a very pleasant vacation.
