HEART STOPPING OCEAN VIEW

Mendocino House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Stillwell Point offers guests a sky high, heart stopping view of Little River's rocky coastal cliffs, islands, and sea arches. This unique glass and stone hideaway sits perched on the very edge of a steep sheer drop . . . hundreds of feet above Buckhorn Cove. This is the soaring domain of the osprey and the hawk . . . in which you can share.

Even indoors, you are surrounded by sky, sea, and sunshine . . . thanks to Stillwell Point's wraparound view windows and sliding glass doors which lead to a pair of patios on the cliff's edge.

If the weather turns wet or wintery . . . and, you literally find Stillwell Point wrapped in the midst of clouds . . . there's a huge stone fireplace just waiting to keep you warm and dry, a million miles away from the worries of your everyday world.

Our home was built into the hidden hillside, incorporating natural materials that were washed up on shore such as huge wood pilings, driftwood, shells, starfish, local river stones, old glass buoys, and ancient ship anchors which add to the charm. Native plants and wild flowers blanket the cliff which overlooks the sea below.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a wonderful time at Stillwell Point! I had no idea how secluded and intimate a location it was. There can't be many locations like it on the Mendo coast. We loved it!



We were lucky enough to experience both sunny and beautiful days as well as windy and stormy days as well. We loved both equally.

Best Views Ever

  • 5 of 5
At the end of a winding private road, we found the perfect hideaway. The house was bright and charming, and the view from every window was breath-taking -- a great home to relax in, with a lovely fireplace stocked with wood. For hiking and running, a number of parks and trails were minutes away by car. Nearby Mendocino and Ft. Bragg were friendly towns to explore.

My husband and I stayed at this home with another couple for a wedding that we attended over the Fourth of July weekend. We went back and forth between driving back to San Francisco after the wedding to spend a few days there, or spending extra time in the Mendocino area. I'm so happy that we chose the latter. Having never visited the area, I wasn't sure what to expect but it was fabulous. The home is very centrally located -- the wedding was at Spring Ranch and we were so close to that location. It's also very close to Russian Gulch State Park (beautiful hiking!) and the town of Mendocino, which has lots of fun shops and restaurants. But my favorite day by far was our last day there when I sat on the lounge chair off one of the bedroom's patio's with my husband and just watched the ocean while we enjoyed a nice glass of wine. I can't even begin to describe the scene -- the weather, the view, the wine -- it was true perfection (I think I recall asking my husband, "Is this real life?" at one point). In fact, I posted a shot on Instagram of this scene (which, I should add, had no filter) and within a few hours one of my good girlfriends had emailed me saying that our photos had changed her mind and that she and her husband are now thinking about heading to Mendocino instead of Mexico for their upcoming babymoon.
Now on to the house -- when we first looked for a rental, we found several options. I will start by acknowledging that the other options we found appeared to have more up-to-date furnishings and amenities than this home. But after reading the reviews for this house, we went for it. Again, I'm so glad we did. Are the furnishings somewhat dated? Absolutely. Did that in any way impact my trip? NO! In fact, we all felt that it all added to the charm of the house. Everything was clean, the appliances all worked well, I had great water pressure, and we never ran out of warm water for showers even when we were all getting ready around the same time. The fireplace was also so nice to have (made me miss having a wood-burning one). Overall, I would call the decor / house to be in a cottage / cabin style. It's quaint and perfect. And have I mentioned that view?!? I mean, sea lions sunbathing right over the cliff every day -- it was unbelievable. Ina was also so helpful with recommendations and was always very prompt to reaspond as I had questions leading up to our trip. Overall, two thumbs up. I hope to go back one day!

Beautiful!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My fiancé and I contacted the owner last minute looking for long weekend vacation home and they pleasantly obliged. While it was a little difficult to find the driveway from highway 1 it was well worth it. We’ve been visiting the north coast for years the view from this house is by far the most amazing we’ve ever seen. The house is located on the tip top of a peninsula providing views north, west, and south of the coast line. The house was clean and well laid out for experiencing the vantage point. Thank you for accommodating us. We look forward to another visit.
