ROOMY, QUIET AND SECLUDED/CLOSE TO VILLAGE

Mendocino House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Artist Retreat

Get away to the glorious Mendocino coast and stay in a truly inspired dream house -- Erin Dertner’s artistically appointed getaway by the sea, ready to receive guests since the Spring of 2009. Boasting four bedrooms all with ocean views, 4 full baths, a large great room and a pool parlor that can become a 5th bedroom. Drive 2 miles to the village of Mendocino while being just far enough away to experience total peace and quiet, as well as taking strolls into Russian Gulch State Park which is virtually next door. Enjoy the ample “cook’s kitchen”, the outdoor hot tub, the expansive deck and the comfortable quarters, complete with Erin’s artwork adorning every room. We're on the west side of highway 1 in a quiet neighborhood, with ocean views to the south and west, from the living area and from all the bedrooms.

Perfect for 8 people, but 2 extras and seat 10 at the dining table. The master has a king bed and lavish bath with a 2 person shower and giant tub. A 2nd large room with king bed now has its own bath with shower, while a queen bedded room and a bedroom with a set of twins (that can be made into a king) share a roomy bath with large shower. The living room and both king bedded rooms have ample floor space for futons while the entry/pool room has a trundle for 2, which is also connected to the 4th full bathroom. With televisions in the living room and Art Studio room, many books, board games and your own pool hall, this is a perfect spot for groups of all ages. (For parties of more than 8-10 people, owners must give authorization and may charge extra.)

Guestbook comments from the owner
"Loved every minute here, you thought of everything, the view, the remodel, the stove...we are looking forward to returning soon." "Your kitchen is equipped better than my house and I've lived there for 10 years!" "We absolutely loved everything about your house. Looking from this gorgeous view was a real treat. You had all the amenities of any first rate spa, except no spa is surrounded by such gorgeous artwork." "We had a wonderful time in your home and truly appreciate your work in accomodating all TEN of us. It is amazingly spacious and has the most gorgeous view over lovely gardens, natural habitat and the sea. On the morning we left, two deer ambled into the driveway and helped themselves to some of your flora. Since we live in the city, it was a thrill to see them "up close and personal," as my daughter likes to say. I also appreciated all of the little touches you arranged and the ample use of your kitchenware!"

Erin and Tomas Dertner have been living and making art on the north coast for 27 years. Erin's work is represented by several national galleries and Tomas does picture framing and marketing. Together they are a remodeling 'Dream Team' with Erin's artistic expertise kicking in while Tomas knows just about everything structurally. They befriend everyone they meet, so be sure to look for them at the gallery / frame shop on Laurel Street in Ft. Bragg when you visit.

Erin Dertner purchased this house in 2009

Besides being a quiet and exclusive neighborhood and its close proximity to Mendocino and Russian Gulch State Park, it is probably the most desirable location for vacation renting on the north coast.

Loved this house!

  • 5 of 5
The "Mendocino Artist's Retreat" was perfect for our group. We had 10 people (5 couples) and it was fantastic. We like to cook and the kitchen was well suited for our chef's needs. Another major plus for us was the walking distance to Russian Gulch State Park. This was great for sunset walks along the bluffs. We also brought along 2 dogs, who were able to run around in the fully enclosed backyard or play fetch in the front yard (not fully enclosed though).

Some of us did some abalone diving and kayaking as well (my friend landed a beautfiul lingcod). You'd probably want to drive to the park if you have a lot of gear. This house is a short drive to North Coast Brewery (in Fort Bragg) as well.

We'd definitely come back to this house for a Mendocino retreat!

The Artist Retreat is a wonderful and amazing get-away home for just about anyone. As you enter the home, you see a pool table and a smile on everyone's face. The view from the large living room is breathtaking and spectacular, as well as the views from each of the four bedrooms, especially the two front bedrooms. One morning, at the break of dawn, I saw four deers walking by, looking so peaceful and content, and I thought to myself that when guests leave the Retreat, they too will feel the same contentment and peace. The kitchen has all the amenities for anyone who would want to put their culinary skills to good use. There is a laundry room with detergents, etc., ready to use just like your own home. The back garden is lovely with a hot tub. The surrounding area of the Retreat is peaceful, quiet, safe and simply magnificent.

Awesome place beautiful memories

  • 5 of 5
Remembering my stay in this awesome place, making me want to come back again. I really want to let everyone know how I and my group love this place. So I wrote:
"I want to let you know that all members of the group (my brother w/his wife, my sisters w/ their husbands, my niece, my husband and I) would like to thank you for let us staying at your gorgeous place in the beautiful Mendocino. That place is awesome, tastefully decorated, fully equipped, and well maintained. It's such a tremendous and unforgettable experience to be there. We stayed, laughed, talked, joked, played, and did anything that we could together. Everybody was so pleased, happy, relax, joyful… oops sorry, I could not describe our feelings precisely…Anyway.. We were so grateful and blessed, and you’ve made it possible. Thanks again, I'm looking for the other opportunity to be in that place again someday".

True Meno Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We have rented many a house in the Mendocino Village area...some pricey, some not. When Erin claims a well appointed kitchen..it means it. The gas stove is great. The plates match.. a rarety in
a vacation home. Comfy bed with jaccuzi tub and shower with duel showerheads.
The ocean view is distant...area is quiet. Back yard is great for dogs..ours did not want to leave.
Already, re-booked for March!

Sea Glass Get-a-way....

  • 5 of 5
We love this home and have stayed for a week in April and a week in July. We are already planning for next year! With 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms ....we all had our own space at night yet during the day/evening had the spacious kitchen/dining room/living room/game room to share. It could not have been more perfect. The middle island in the kitchen is huge and after a long day sea glass hunting we all had room to pour out our sea glass and sort. We soaked in the hot tub and sat out on the front deck overlooking the ocean taking in the gorgeous sunsets. Tomas and Erin were very sweet and interesting...and always available for questions. We really hit the Jackpot with this one!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at the retreat June 21, 2011. The house and furnishings are beautiful. The pictures posted accurately reflect the condition of the property. There was plenty of comfortable seating for our large family. The kitchen was well equipped and easy to work in. The family enjoyed the pool table, hot tub and sitting on the deck watching the ocean in the distance after a busy day at the beach. We liked that you can walk to Russian Gulch headlands from the house. The owners were very accommodating throughout the process, including returning our deposit quickly. We look forward to returning.
