About Peter Anderson
We bought the house in 2007 for our retirement because we can't think of anywhere else as spectacularly as beautiful. It is one of the world's truly special places.

Why Peter Anderson chose Mendocino
We have long been in love with the indescribable Mendocino coast, and bought the house for our retirement. But, that's 10 years off, and we're renting it out for vacations until then.
What makes this house unique
The thing that everyone tells us when they leave is the incredible location on the ocean. Located about 15 minutes south of the Village of Mendocino, it is not too developed, yet neither is it too remote. In this special spot, Molly has focused on providing attractive woman's touches to make guests' time there comfortable, attractive and evocative.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Peter and Molly,
This was our second time staying at Sea & River House, and it was again a magnificent experience. The house is beautiful and we enjoyed being able to watch the sunset from the hot tub in the evening. The view of nature is magnificent. The addition of WiFi saved us the choice between worrying and a trip into town. We stayed during the Mendocino music festival which was spectacular. Thank you again for a great vacation.
