Peace & Quiet

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at the Irish Beach House and everything was perfect. The house was immaculate, comfortable and suitably equipped. You have all the comforts of home. The ocean view was spectacular and the night sky unbelievable! We saw hummingbirds and deer and the private beach was lovely. I can't wait to return.

Manchester is 3 miles away with a good grocery store and stocked with fresh caught salmon. I highly recommend this house if you are looking for tranquility. We never once turned on the TV and didn't miss it. The view is better than anything you could possibly want to see.

The Best on the Coast!

  • 5 of 5

We came from Cold Springs, Nevada, to have a week on the California coast (where we hail from). It took eight hours of driving to get there and was well worth every minute of the drive! To quote my thank you to the owners in part, "Just a brief word to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the pleasure of staying at the Beach House. It was beyond our wildest expectations, with every single detail attended to ~ nothing was missed. All was of the highest quality, unusual in a vacation home. You quite obviously treat this one like your own. We left the house only one day to go to Mendocino but only lasted a couple of hours and were happy to return to the peace and restfulness of the house. And although I am retired, I came back home tanned and rested from being out on the deck most of the time. Lots of Scrabble was played and much reading. Now we are back home and each of us into our own 'rat races', but the memory of our time at the Beach House is a treasure. We look forward to returning as soon as it becomes possible." We were looking for a good place to get some needed rest, but don't discount the many things there are to do in the area with a family. The Mendocino coast is a beautiful place and the Redwoods are a stone's throw away. There are only positive things to say about The Beach House and its location. It's one of those 'too good to be true' things that don't come along often in life. Stay here ~ you won't be sorry!!

Relaxing Beach Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

We had a thoroughly relaxing weekend at the Fries beach house. This place has just about everything anyone could want for a weekend of quiet beauty on the coast. The place was immaculate, even though dogs are allowed. The long view of surf is stunning from the house and deck which sits on a bluff above the beach. Sunsets and sparkling water - so pretty. The house gets the breeze from the ocean, but we pulled some deck chairs to the side of the house and sat in the sun reading. Almost got a tan. The house is close to the beach so our dog had a blast romping in the sand. Took a fun day trip into Gualala (only 40 so minutes sounth) and went home with a beautiful stained glass lamp from the art co-op The Dolphin. We discovered an excellent Thai restaraunt in tiny Anchor Bay. The Thai Kitchen? All in all a great weekend spot to relax and watch the waves. Even saw a whale spouting past. I also found a bakery in Gualala that makes gluten free cookies - it's to the right of the art gallery near the grocery store on the west side of the street. And yes, I'd go back to this home away from home again and I will tell my friends. Lovely place.

21st birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible venue for our celebration ! We felt right at home in this beautiful home with a wrap around deck and incredible view of the ocean. We LOVE to cook and felt right at home in the well equipped kitchen. The fireplace warmed us as we played trivial pursuit with a multigenerational group. A good time was had by all. The beach access allowed us to walk the beach . A very special place . We will be back!

Red Bluff

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure where to start! We spent three beautiful days at the Beach House in February. The weather was gorgeous. We saw the Milky Way in the clearest skies we've seen since childhood. We so loved the sound and sight of the ocean waves breaking that we spent almost all of our time at the house, not sightseeing. We went out for lunch at Point Arena, stopped at a local grocery store for supplies and headed right back to the house, enjoying the peace and beauty of the ocean below us. By our second day there, we had made plans to return for another visit.

The house itself is very accommodating...TV, games, books, computer, phone, fully stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, central hanging fireplace with wood provided with thorough instructions for operating whatever you need to use. Doggie door, dog water bowl outside, dog beds and toys, children's books, games and movies. Wi-fi if your brought your own tech stuff. Owners very nice and quick to reply. A perfect getaway!

Absolutely perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Awesome home, gorgeous location and lived up to our expectations 110 percent.

We were looking for a place close to home for a long weekend, two couples and two well trained doggies. Hubby found this listing and we booked it. I could not be happier with the choice. The home is so comfortable and cozy. it has a fireplace and heaters, games, a fully outfitted kitchen. The master bedroom is spacious. There's plenty of sleeping area for a larger party. And the deck is just amazing. It has the best view of the Pacific because it's practically on top of it.

The home was in tip-top shape when we arrived. You can tell the owners take a lot of pride in their home. It's not too "precious" and I wasn't afraid of breaking things. It fit like my favorite pair of slippers. I just walked in, sat down and let the rest of the world slip away for three days.

We went down to the beach twice (walked once, drove once) and it was gorgeous; not crowded at all. The home is close enough to go wine tasting, but really, just bring the wine with you 'cause you won't want to leave. There are also some nice restaurants nearby.

When we had to leave (sniff, sniff) all four of us agreed that this getaway was as good as it gets. We had an awesome time. Thanks Ruth and Bob!
