About JoAnn

We have been vacation owners for the past 7 years and enjoy having the rental business. Mendocino is a tranquil, stress-relieving place where we can completely escape and relax. The wineries are another favorite of ours as well as the hiking and biking trails.

JoAnn purchased this house in 2006

Why JoAnn chose Mendocino

We both love the ocean and beauty of northern California. We usually make an annual trip with friends to the wine country. On one of those trips we decided to look at the local real estate as a long term investment. After looking at just a few oceanview properties we knew we'd found the perfect home in Sea Ridge. Sea Ridge is nestled on 5 acres in the pines, with no other homes in sight, and quiet enough to enjoy the wildlife and ocean. Mendocino is just 15 minutes north, and the rapidly growing Anderson Valley wine region is 20 minutes inland. Just a short walk up our road are sheep, emus, deer, wild turkeys, and an occasional bobcat. Having a home in northern California affords the best that the beautiful state of California has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Sea Ridge has beautiful ocean views from most every room in the home. Much of the 5 acres is usable, and the paved private driveway is unique. The home is all single-level and feels very spacious, with numerous windows and skylights. There is a kiva fireplace in the main living area, and woodstove heaters in each bedroom for extra coziness. The kitchen has a variety of cooking utensils as well as generous bathroom baskets of those items you may have forgotten. All the linens and bedding are high quality, 100% cotton, down blankets, comforters, a variety of pillows, and large soft towels. There are toys, DVDs, VHS movies, crafts and games for the kids. The home was previously owned by two local artists who have since moved out of state, and they have left their colorful spirit throughout the home. Guests have often commented how warm and welcoming the house is, 'as if our friends just left us the keys'. The home is very quiet due to its secluded location.

Shangri-La on the Pacific

  • 5 of 5
Last week a group of us (3 couples and a dog) spent 4 lovely days at Sea Ridge. It was a Shangri-La for us - an "...earthly paradise, a permanently happy land, isolated from the outside world". Easy to find. Away from but close enough to the bustle of Mendo Village and surrounded by the natural beauty of the Pacific Coastline. Wonderful restaurants nearby - Albion Inn and Ledford House.

JoAnn and Russ are the penultimate remote host and hostess having anticipated our every need with well stocked kitchen, pantry/laundry room and bathrooms - there are even little slipper socks to keep your feet warm at night. The house is so well laid out with three tiered bedrooms such that each couple has a deck and a view of the ocean. The beds are so comfortable that only the view and shopping/wine tasting fantasies can draw you out of them. And the deck - fantastic place to commune, cook and contemplate. And did I mention the hot tub situated on its own deck below the master deck surrounded by the remains of a redwood for privacy? Fireplace in the family room and wood stoves in every bedroom. Totally pet friendly. Supermarket in Mendo is fine but recommend stopping at a supermarket before you hit the Anderson Valley. Such a wonderful few days. Thanks JoAnn and Russ! We are all looking forward to our next stay at Sea Ridge!

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5
My family spent a week at Russ & JoAnne's VRBO rental as part of a road trip from Calgary to San Francisco. The photos do not do justice to the beauty of both the view and the grounds around the home.

We had two days of fog - but it was incredibly beautiful and we could still see the ocean throughout the day. Navarro beach, which is a five minute drive from the home, offered an escape from the fog - if you needed to. We made use of the fire place and space in the house to hang out, read, and cook. It was really quite peaceful. Otherwise we lucked out and had 5 days of sunny blue skies and spent a lot of time on the decks!

The home is well equipped and very clean. All the amenities are there, and the pantry was stocked with all the items would would need to cook. There were items in the pantry (spices, sugar etc.) - we just took some and then bought items to replace what we may have used. The general living space has amazing views of the pacific ocean (as do all the bedrooms), with a huge wrap around deck that made it easy to take in the sun and sea air. There is a hot tub and lower sun deck which were basically hidden away - which was great to enjoy the solitude.

We saw quails & their babies (about 24 of them in a large group), jays, woodpeckers, humming birds (there were always 3-5 in the gardens by the kitchen/deck), rabbits (the smallest we have ever seen), a mother deer & her 2 fawns, frogs, & turkey vultures. The environment around the home was really quite alive.

We would definitely stay here again if in the Mendocino area - and there were many activities/sight seeing items to do within a short drive of this home. Fort Bragg is only 30 minutes away and Mendocino was about a 20 minute drive, and you return to the peacefulness of this space. The house is large - for four of us (3 adults, 1 8 year old) it was more than enough space - so larger groups would also do quite well.

Russ and JoAnne were easy to deal with, professional, and checked in with us to make sure everything was working well and as promised.

Relaxing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing stay at the Sea Ridge house. Such a comfortable, clean and lovely home.

The view from the house is INCREDIBLE. Even on a foggy day the view of the ocean is breathtaking, however we lucked out and got a fair amount of sunshine!

The house has a wonderful deck that closes off if you are bringing your dog. I also felt very safe letting my "city" dog run around in the yard. They even provided use of a nice large dog bed.

Inside the home there are plenty of bathrooms that are nicely remodeled. Two with new looking jetted tubs. Although I didn't bother since we had use of the hot tub. Everything was extremely clean and tidy which is always appreciated. Plenty of towels and they stocked their showers with shampoo, conditioner and soap.

In fact, JoAnn and Russ did an amazing job stocking the house with anything you might need. Tooth brushes, tooth paste, combs, nail clippers, socks and even down to nail polish remover! They thought of everything!

My one comment about the bedrooms is that one in particular (the one I stayed in) has 2 sky lights which made it difficult for me to sleep in past sunrise. If I go back I will definitely bring an eye mask.

I have stayed at many vacation rentals and I really appreciate when an owner doesn't rush you out on the last day. I've had cleaning crews show up ON THE DOT to make sure you leave on time. I understand why it has to be done sometimes, but I always appreciate when an owner is relaxed about check out. It also gave us time to tidy up the house before turning it back over. :)

Thank you for our stay! It was such a nice trip and I will always look back fondly on our weekend at Sea Ridge.

Amazing view and A perfectly appointed house

  • 5 of 5
Spent Memorial Day weekend with my family of 5 (three kids ages, 13, 11 and 9) and my 70 year old parents. The house was perfect! It had all you could need not to mention super comfortable beds. Kids all stayed in one giant kids room. The view is spectacular and it's very close to Elk and Mendocino towns. The hot tub was delightful and the large wrap around deck was perfect for grandparents and grandchildren to just chilax! We hope to return soon!

Epic Mendocino Getaway

  • 5 of 5
I have had the pleasure of staying at Sea Ridge multiple times. It's a wonderful getaway for family with plenty of room to explore and soak in the amazing views. The hot tub has the most amazing view of all. It's also the gateway to the enchanting Mendocino Coast, the Navarro River, the Redwoods and Anderson Valley wineries!

Great visit!

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a great Mendocino getaway for my wife and me and three adult children. Sea Ridge turned out to be a wonderful choice! It's well positioned within close driving distance to Mendocino, Fort Bragg and numerous rugged coastal beaches. The house itself was a wonderful experience. We spent hours in the great room and kitchen with those fabulous views of the ocean. Great hot tubbing, feeding of the woodpecker and jays on the deck, cooking smores in the huge living room fireplace. Highly recommended!
