AMAZING VIEW OF THE PACIFIC FROM THE HEART OF TOWN.

Mendocino Apartment Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

Imagine your own private view of Mendocino Bay and the Pacific Ocean, sitting on the balcony or in the living room, watching the sun set....or rise. You can hear the waves hitting the cliffs below the house.

You are surrounded by the artwork of Bill and Jennie Zacha, founders of the Mendocino Art Center. Casa Zacha was their home, which Bill designed and built in 1964

Artists Dorr Bothwell, Toshi Yoshida, Hilda Pertha, Fran Moyer, and Charles Stevenson, and many others gathered here on many evenings to share ideas, to celebrate and to plan. They sipped red wine, ate Spaghetti Carbonara and reaped inspiration for their next work of art.

There is no better view or location in the village than Casa Zacha. You are in town, at the West end of Main Street, yet in a very quiet area across from the Headlands State Park. You are steps to the best that Mendocino culture has to offer—great restaurants, galleries, the Mendocino Art Center, the Mendocino Theatre Company, Music Festival, & Film Festival.

Casa Zacha is most suited to sophisticated couples wanting a classic Mendocino experience. There are three private bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen bed, magnificent view and is attached to two baths. A second bedroom has a twin and double bed, ocean view from it's private deck, and an shared bath (connected to one previously mentioned). A third bedroom has a full bed, small sink, and enormous library. The baths are as unique as the rest of the house. The shower room has two showers.

The kitchen is stocked with everything needed to create a gourmet meal and entertain friends.

One-of-a-kind antiques and original artworks throughout the house will delight the eye and excite the imagination.

Keywords: Casa Zacha is a Frank Lloyd Wright inspired design, offering a peaceful and private retreat,

without any neighbors to bother you.

Raised in Mendocino, and in this house since I was eight, I am ready to share it with others. I spend half my time out of the area and am happy to give others the chance to enjoy this magnificent place.

Anna purchased this apartment in 1962

This is the family home where I grew up. I lived here with my parents, Bill and Jennie Zacha, the artists who drew their friends to this town and helped create the artists’ community it has become. My parents first saw Mendocino in 1957. As described by Look Magazine in a 1962 article, “it was virtually a ghost town. Its population, completely dependent on a dying lumber industry, was dwindling. The town had lost interest in itself; there was absolutely nothing doing. How Bill Zacha revived it is indeed a miracle.” In Bill’s words, “Towns have souls and needs like other living things. People forget this. When I first saw Mendocino, I became excited. It had an unusual, almost unearthly quality about it - pure, quiet, unsullied - but it was dying. I knew I could help it, help it get back on its feet and make it a place where people would get a simple but profound satisfaction out of living.'

After starting the Mendocino Art Center, my parents (and I) spent many years visiting and living in Italy and Japan. The influence of these countries is quite evident in the artwork throughout the house. My parents loved to entertain. While my life has taken me to Oregon now, where I spend most of my time, I want to share this home with those who appreciate its unique architecture, 60’s sophistication, and magnificent views.

The best benefit is that once you park the car everything is within a 5 block radius!

And once inside the house you are in a private, peaceful sanctuary....with a view!

BEAUTIFUL PLACE, PERFECT SETTING, WONDERFUL HISTORY

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful place! There could be no better view of the Mendocino cove. Sitting on the deck and watching the boats fish for rock cod, listening to birds, breezes, and a few tourists chat as they wander on the street below ... what could be better? The house is beautifully arranged, the beds comfortable, the artwork superb. The huge window seat was a popular spot each evening. My mother could not stop exclaiming about how wonderful the place is. And everything in Mendocino Village is within an easy stroll of your location.

I recommend, if you stay here, that you read about the artist who built this home. It will help you appreciate the place even more, and Mendocino as well. Go to the Mendocino Art Center to learn more. And visit the historic houses in town for Mendocino's early history.

Finally, in response to previous comments about the bathroom layout: there are two separate bathrooms, with a large double shower unit between them that is connected by a soaking tub. The connection is not at all a problem, because the heavy curtain between the showers allows for complete privacy. My parents joined us for two nights and none of us had any issue with this.

GREAT LOCATION!!

  • 4 of 5
Perfect for hanging out on the balcony and enjoying the views, and then walking around the village of Mendocino. Very homey--not your typical rental but that's what's cool; it's "Retro Mendocino!" The price is very reasonable for this location, and the owner is fun loving and approachable.

BEAUTIFUL ARTISTIC HOUSE

  • 4 of 5
House was gorgeous and spacious, and the view was an absolute dream. While in Mendocino, I couldn't spot another house with a view possibly better than from this one. Kitchen and bathrooms were stocked, the place was clean. There were lots of windows and sunroofs for natural lighting.

The only downsides were that one of the bedrooms didn't have a proper door, and the two showers were connected and separated by a curtain. We stayed at the house as 3 couples, and these weren't really big issues for us - just slightly inconveniences.

Overall, really excellent house - would definitely recommend.

My family and I stayed for three nights at Casa Zacha and loved it. The floor to ceiling views of the bay were fabulous. It was nice to be in town so we could walk to everything but near the western edge where it is not quite so busy. And we love the fact that there was off-street parking just for us which made unloading the car easier. We plan to stay here again.

DIFFERENT THAN EXPECTED...

  • 2 of 5
We were disappointed when we first arrived to find the rental not quite as advertised. According to the description, we were expecting a hot tub, and two private bathrooms with showers. As a group of 8 friends getting together for the summer, the bathrooms proved rather problematic; while there are two bathrooms, each has a shower door (open at top and bottom) that lead into one communal shower/bath space. Basically two bathrooms connected by one shower. There are two shower heads, and a bathtub in between the showers. So if you don't care about privacy, one person could take a bath, with a showering person on either side of them, with no dividing wall. Also, there is a notice on the refrigerator about "quiet time" from 9am-6pm every day, due to the business below. The view is lovely, but be aware that main street is directly in front of the balcony. Aside from the lack of hot tub, and the bathroom issue/weird shower setup, everything was alright. It was very peaceful at night; the kitchen is well-stocked, and there was plenty of seating. If a bohemian, central location is what you're looking for, then go for it. But for the price, we probably wouldn't do it again.

Owner's Response: The two showers share a common tiled area and there is a curtain between them. Never in all the years we have had guests has anyone complained about the setup.
The soaking tub was listed as out of service and still is...we have taken any mention of it off the info page.
Regarding the quiet time. Out of courtesy to the massage therapists downstairs we ask that between 9 and 5 (not 6) you keep the music down. They all leave at 5 so you are welcome to make all the noise you want after that.
Casa Zacha is located on Main Street IN Mendocino, so we expect that you will have some daytime passers by, as well as moderate traffic.

FANTASTIC LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Exactly as we had hoped. Charmingly elegant. We parked our car and left it for days. We sipped coffee on the deck in the morning and enjoyed cocktails there at night. Never even wanted to go out, but we did. We took morning walks on the headlands, and walked to the restaurants and theater at night. This is a surprisingly quiet area, despite being so close to everything. The price is a real bargain!

In 50 years of living in the house we have never had an issue with two people needing to shower at the same time. Usually they just take turns. Plus, we have only a 30 gallon water heater so it is better to space out the showers. We have hung a shower curtain for privacy between the showers. The Japanese soaking tub unfortunately has a leak and is temporarily out of commission.
