Review Text: "We love Northern California. Mendocino has been our

favorite for years - so we were hesitant when we decided to venture South to

Gualala. But, we must admit this place is absolutely a gem. Spectacular

Views, Lots of Sunshine, Abundant Wildlife and the quality of this

home is tough to beat anywhere.



Like others here, we stay in lots of homes when traveling and

traditionally stay in the very best we can find. But, 'Serendipity' is a

masterpiece of fine living. Secluded, yet easily accessible to all this area

offers. Fine Shopping, Great Massages, Dining, Parks, Canoeing and

Beautful Beaches. Wineries are all over the area and you'll love a glass in

the relaxing hot-tub, that like the rest of the property is well

positioned for privacy and views.



In todays world it's kinda neat to spend some time in a home powered in

part by solar energy - and realized you have sacrificed nothing in

comfort, and leave feeling a bit smarter in the process.



Ethan Allen furniture, hardwoods, granite and stone...this place is

perfect for any length of time, any time of the year.



Lastly...a vacation is hard to forget when you come home refreshed and

feeling you had made a great choice. The owners are available, helpful

and the perfect hosts - although you may never actually see them. Every

detail is perfect and the beds are to die for.



If you like the best - you'll love this place!"

Couldn't have been better

Couldn't have been better

It was even better then the pictures show... my wife and two young kids plan to make this home a tradition. Perfect spot, perfect size, amazing views throughout the home. From the moment we walked in the door and saw the beautiful ocean view through the enormous bay windows we were hooked. Then to realize from every room the breathtaking scenery was right outside the glass there couldn't have been a more tranquil place. Our family spent 4 nights here and didn't in any way want to go back to the "city" life. We were able to cook together, talk with each other, laugh with each other, and just enjoy each other. In a busy hustle and bustle life you never realize how enjoyable those simple moments are. Serendipity allows you to enjoy the simple things in life. The sounds of your kids running through the halls, waves crashing on the surrounding sand dunes, the smell of ocean and some good home cooking, all make this house a home. Every memory we made here will stay with us until our next stay in this beautiful serendipity home. We hope the next families to stay, or friends create just as amazing memories as we have and will.... Katherine & Jason Huff

It's the VERY best....

I don't like the word "miraculous" because in the vast majority of cases it simply overreaches. Our 2-day stay at Serendipity was miraculous. This is a wonderfully-designed home in a fantastic location on one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, at the mouth of a river, yet. From the deck we saw deer (duh!), multiple mama whales with their calves in reach-out-and-touch proximity, a peregrine falcon perched in a pine tree for 15 minutes just off the deck, beautiful sunsets and a connection with coastal nature that cannot be duplicated anywhere. My wife and I (60's) spent the time with her parents (mid-80's) and we were all thrilled. There are nice-enough restaurants in town or up the coast, but plan to eat your meals in the house. Bring your food or buy it at the local market and everything else is at hand. The owners of this house designed and built it to be lived in and absolutely everything you will need is provided. There are numerous opportunities close at hand for hiking, biking, kayaking and other adventures and Mendocino is only a few miles up the road. Trust me...you won't want to leave the deck.

P.S. I haven't even mentioned the hot tub which, on a clear night, gives a best-ever view of sky and ocean (stars visible to the horizon). And it works!!

You will not be disappointed.

Beautiful And Peaceful Serendipity

  • 5 of 5
This home was more than we ever expected. Upon Arriving our eyes were immediately drawn to the amazing ocean view. We found the little town Gualala to be tranquil and delightful. The kitchen was laid out very nice, upgraded appliances and enough dishes and pots and pans for most any meal. I do believe the owners have thought of almost everything, you just need to bring your favorite book and dvd's. The beds were comfortable and the home was very quiet and peaceful, you only here the waves of the ocean. I can't say enough about the stunning view, hot tub and all of the wonderful amenities of this home. We would have loved to have spent more time in this lovely home. Our entire trip was great and we can't wait to return.

Serendipity

  • 5 of 5
Our last minute 4 day stay at Serendipity was simply fantastic. It all came together so harmoniously. This property is even better than the photos and description. There is a gorgeous view from every window. Birds galore. The stars at night awesome from the hot tub. The owner was really helpful and responsive. Kayaking in the river is very peaceful, hiking around the estuary and along the bluffs also great.The only thing wrong was that our stay was far too short for me! Rent it for a week or two, bring your books and sit in the window seats and only leave to get exercise and explore what you can see from your windows and deck. Heaven! Once you get to Serendipity you will never want to leave. I would go back in a heart beat. Thanks so much.

Beautiful house! Excellent views!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 stayed here for 4 nights. Excellent house and very well maintained. There was a slight problem when we got in but that was fixed shortly after our call so very prompt service. No more problems after that. The kitchen is very well stocked. We only had to buy food. There were lots of spices, very good utensils and cooking equipment plus additional items like a fondue set and waffle maker. There were 3 kinds of coffeemakers and a coffee grinder! Basic supplies like paper towels, toilet paper, and napkins were supplied so that was very helpful as well. The views are amazing! And it was quiet. All we could hear were the waves. The path down to the street (back of the house) was a nice touch. The only frustrating thing was that there was no direct access to the beach from there even if we could easily see it. The Gualala Regional Park nearby was excellent as it allowed access to the coastal trail along Sea Ranch which was an easy and beautiful trail. Wonderful house and would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words. We are so lucky to have Cathleen and her crew at Coasting Home as our property managers. We have had very few problems at Serendipity, but when they do occur, Coasting Home has always resolved them quickly, with the least amount of inconvenience to our guests.
I'm glad you enjoyed the beaches and trails. We provide our guests with a Sonoma County Park pass, so that they can enjoy them without having to pay the park fee.
