OCEANFRONT PRIVATE GET-A-WAY -- 2 MI. N. OF MENDOCINO VILLAGE

Mendocino Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Abalone Arch - a romantic and private guest suite on the edge of a bluff above a dramatic and private ocean cove on the rugged Mendocino coast, only two miles north of the village of Mendocino.

Your privacy is of upmost importance! Behind a high entrance gate is a secluded and protected patio with two Adirondack chairs, perfect for sunset watching with a glass of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir. A private covered and protected deck has a rocking chair for whale watching. Discover the outside shower (there is an ocean view inside shower too) that is on the edge of the cliff above the arch and cove.

The tastefully decorated “Coastal Living” style suite is charming and light. Inside the large windows, which are just fifteen feet from the craggy ocean bluff, is a comfortable king sized bed and a cozy sitting area with a gas fireplace. The granny kitchen (fridge, microwave, convection oven, coffee pot) comes with complimentary homemade cookies and granola (milk), local beer and wine, coffee and teas (cream), cheese and crackers.

For those traveling with a computer, free secure high-speed WiFi internet connection is available. There is also an Bose Blue Tooth System, a CD player with CD’s, a flat screen TV and a private phone with unlimited long distance.

Wake up to migrating grey whales, hungry brown pelicans, diving ospreys as well as the “S’s” – seals, sea lions and sea gulls. For those guests who can pull themselves away from relaxing and from their “ocean watching chore;” outdoor activities abound – hiking, cycling, kayaking, exploring - all within easy access in the several nearby State Parks. Just two miles south is the historic village of Mendocino with restaurants, theater, galleries and shopping. Forty five minutes east is the Anderson Valley where award winning pinot noir, chardonnay and sparking wines can be enjoyed in boutique tasting cellars. Majestic redwood forests are ready to be discovered on short hikes in our local State Parks.

Fall asleep to the rhythm of the tides and the music from the rocks.

Very clean, no doggy smells or drippings

Electric plug in available for plug in vehicles.

Spa Quality Suite on Breathtaking Coast

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Abalone Arch July 29-August 5, 2014. All the reviews are true – this is an exquisite suite directly on the coast a couple short miles north of the wonderful town of Mendocino. The pictures, regardless how lovely, cannot possible represent how breathtaking this property truly is.
The suite is utterly top-notch with King sized bed, wall to wall carpet, floor to ceiling windows, gas fireplace, kitchenette with designer dishes, modern spacious bathroom with huge shower, also an outdoor (hot) shower, an eating area on patio or deck and small propane grill for your use. The suite is stocked with spa quality bathroom/shower supplies, robes, linens, towels; and the kitchenette is stocked with homemade delicious granola and cookies, and wine to welcome you!
The suite is absolutely private – an attractive wooden gate separates you from the world on one side and the ocean crashes below you on the other side. Wildlife, such as many birds, including darling hummingbirds, seals, and even whales in the right season, are frequently seen from the window, deck, or nearby walk.
There are loads of beautiful activities, beaches, hikes, Redwoods, boating, theater, fine restaurants, impressive galleries (!), wildlife, National Parks, fine local produce markets, and many quaint shops, all within a few miles of the suite!
This suite and location are a treat for all your senses: great air to breath and beauty to behold, great food to consume, and beautiful sounds of the surf and birdcalls, and the suite itself provides comfort and restoration to your body and soul!
Hosts Wendy and Barry have been extremely generous in the quantity and quality of everything they put into this place! They are accommodating, yet not intrusive! They make you feel pampered and comfortable. Get this…now that we are home, we MISS them!!
If you enjoy quality living, with extraordinary natural coast abounding and kindhearted generous hospitality…then this is the place for you!
We hope to return in the future – or to move in permanently if Wendy and Barry will have us!!

Thank you Wendy and Barry for an unbelievably wonderful experience!!

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
I can't add much to what the previous reviewers have already stated - stunning, private, beautiful, perfect and more. My wife and I felt that we cheated ourselves in only staying for 3 nights. The accommodations and setting are everything as advertised and we felt totally welcome and pampered from the get-go. Wendy and Barry made us feel like returning long-time friends and enabled us to totally chill and relax. When will we go back? Not soon enough!

A wonderful place to relax and enjoy the beautiful Mendocino coast

  • 5 of 5
Wendy and Barry offer an amazing place to relax and experience northern California at its very best. Abalone Arch is very private yet Wendy and Barry make sure that all you need is close at hand. We spent 5 wonderful days at Abalone Arch and hope to return again soon. If you love waves crashing outside your room, gorgeous scenery and a culturally interesting town just a few miles down the road, this place is for you!

Romantic ocean view get away

  • 5 of 5
We were thrilled with our stay at Abalone Arch. The photos on the web site are lovely, but being there is beyond what the photos can show. The setting is more spectacular than a camera can capture. The suite is totally private and the ocean views are unbelievable. The private garden, with it’s romantic setting and seating has an magnificent ocean view. The kitchen is stocked with wine, cheese, fresh ground coffee, delicious home made granola and cookies. They have thought of everything that you would need.

We watched whales and sea lions from the suite while enjoying the ambiance of the lovely furnishings.

Wendy and Barry are very careful to give you complete privacy, but are there to help you with your every need.

We were celebrating a special event in our lives, and felt our time at Abalone Cove was beyond perfect.

Kayak the rivers by Mendocino

  • 5 of 5
Last week we spent several wonderful days at Abalone Arch. Everything you’ve read about the room and hospitality is true. On clear nights, the Milky Way is spectacular, on stormy nights the ocean rages. Either way, we had fireworks every night.

We brought our new kayaks up to Mendocino to paddle up some rivers and some tranquil ocean coves. The first day the ocean was flat so we paddled around the Van Damme State Park. This is a very nice area to become acquainted with ocean kayaking. Later that day we went up the Albion River. We also paddled the Navarro River and the Noyo River. We were told that the Big River is the best of all but we ran out of time. This area is really wonderful for kayaking!!

Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5
For our 20th wedding anniversary my husband and I booked a trip to CA. We decided to stay at several different places starting in Mendocino and making our way thru Napa and Sonoma. Abalone Arch was our first stop after a long day of travelling. The pictures do not lie. The place is breathtaking. We absolutely loved it. The owners are very welcoming and there if you need them but do not invade your privacy at all. Everything was perfect. The delicious homemade cookies and granola left upon your arrival, the bed was extremely comfortable, the indoor and outdoor showers were awesome and the view from the cottage was awesome. We particularly loved "the stump" where we had several glasses of wine while just sitting and looking out at the ocean. It was amazing. We went for a great hike in the park up the street and loved the town of Mendocino. Very friendly people and lots of great places to eat. I highly recommend Abalone Arch to anyone wanting to get away from it all. We will definitely return, hopefully soon! Thank you Wendy for a wonderful start to our vacation. It was without a doubt the most beautiful place that we stayed the entire time we were in California. What a phenomenal place to live!
