This Pacific Ocean retreat is ideal for those seeking peace, quiet, and spectacular sunsets. The Whale Watch House is located in one of Mendocino’s best-kept and most-exclusive coastal neighborhoods just one mile north of the historic Mendocino Village .
This craftsman beauty features an open floor plan. Through the many large picture windows you will enjoy unparalleled views of the blue Pacific Ocean while your privacy is ensured by the surrounding grove of mature cypress trees. There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities such as walking, jogging, and biking just outside the front door. The main entrance to Russian Gulch State Park and the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse are both within walking distance.
Enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an afternoon glass of wine on the large deck and watch the seals, migrating whales, as well as an abundance of wildlife including black tail deer, wild turkeys, raccoons, foxes, brown pelicans and other sea birds.

We are mostly retired now. Harvey is a rancher -- and these ranchers never completely retire. Jackie is a retired school teacher. We are finally getting to the place where we have more time to enjoy the coast and all it has to offer. Our children and grandchildren (Idaho and Arizona folks) love to get their 'ocean fix' over here at Whale Watch House. A special treat for them is to ride the Skunk Train and to hunt for treasures on the many beaches. But, for us, just being here is very special.
We are used to country living; that is, lots of privacy. When we first saw Whale Watch House nestled in among the many mature trees, we knew we had found our quiet, coastal retreat with all the privacy we enjoy. Every time we walk up those steps to the deck, come around the corner to the front door, and see that ocean out in front of us . . . . well, we know all over again that we made the right decision to make Whale Watch House our coastal home-away-from-home.
Fantastic for Whale Watching!! Close to Pt. Cabrillo Lighthouse Station and Caspar Beach. Minutes from Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens and the famous Skunk Train, which is not just for the kids!
Plan a day trip inland to the many wonderful wineries, shop the unique boutiques in the Village and in Fort Bragg.
Be sure to visit the world famous tattoo museum in Fort Bragg. Pick up some 'just caught today' fresh fish from Noyo Harbor. While there, drop in at Carine's for a visit with Mama Carine and feast on Carine's HUGE hamburgers. Too much for one person---bring a friend to help you on this feast.
