We came from Cold Springs, Nevada, to have a week on the California coast (where we hail from). It took eight hours of driving to get there and was well worth every minute of the drive! To quote my thank you to the owners in part, "Just a brief word to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the pleasure of staying at the Beach House. It was beyond our wildest expectations, with every single detail attended to ~ nothing was missed. All was of the highest quality, unusual in a vacation home. You quite obviously treat this one like your own. We left the house only one day to go to Mendocino but only lasted a couple of hours and were happy to return to the peace and restfulness of the house. And although I am retired, I came back home tanned and rested from being out on the deck most of the time. Lots of Scrabble was played and much reading. Now we are back home and each of us into our own 'rat races', but the memory of our time at the Beach House is a treasure. We look forward to returning as soon as it becomes possible." We were looking for a good place to get some needed rest, but don't discount the many things there are to do in the area with a family. The Mendocino coast is a beautiful place and the Redwoods are a stone's throw away. There are only positive things to say about The Beach House and its location. It's one of those 'too good to be true' things that don't come along often in life. Stay here ~ you won't be sorry!!
