I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was spotless.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
My family's stay in Irish Beach was very nice. We appreciated the access to such a beautiful beach, where we enjoyed kite flying, playing in the sand, and tide pooling. The house was clean and comfortable. We liked the gas fireplace; it was lovely and heated the place quickly. Our children, ages 5 and 2, played well in the house and shared a room without squabbling very much. They also liked playing in the large yard, where we saw deer and quail.
We thought the house was in a great location, close to attractions in Point Arena, Fort Bragg, and Mendocino, yet remote enough that we felt we were really getting away from crowds and finding peace and quiet.
There was a small glitch in our stay when a water pipe broke (or was blocked?) in the neighborhood and we had no water for about four hours. But the office staff responded immediately to the situation and kept us apprised of the progress of repairs. They also offered us the chance to shower and prepare food in a different cabin. Fortunately, the water service resumed and we didn't need to do that.
To improve future guests' stay, we'd like to suggest sharpening the cutlery in the kitchen and providing a pizza cutting wheel. Also, it might be nice to furnish the house with a dining table that is not made of glass. All week I cringed when my kids set their milk glasses on it with little thuds. A friend of ours had a glass table break like this, in a big messy dangerous way. "Be careful!" we kept saying to our kids.
