The cottage has an amazing location on a bluff above a magnificent cove, sandy beach and island. A short private path on the property leads you down to the peaceful cove. The cottage is just 3 miles from Mendocino Village and close to restaurants, markets, activities, golf and hiking. It's a perfect romantic place for 2 (or an inspiring single's retreat). It's a great place to celebrate an anniversary, birthday or just get away from it all.
This charming oceanfront cottage is a separate and private building on the owner's 3-acre property. It's light and airy, nicely decorated, and very clean! Vaulted ceilings give an open feel to this romantic little house. It is well-equipped with electronics, including 2 Cable TV’s, WIFI, DVD player, stereo IPOD docking station, and CD player.
Enjoy the scent of the ocean, see and hear the waves, and have a front-row seat for the sunset. And on clear nights, enjoy the moon shining on the water and an amazing array of stars.
THANK YOU for taking the time to read it all. If this suits you, we will be happy to welcome you for a special oceanfront getaway. Ginny & Norm
We fell in love with Mendocino in the late 80’s while staying at an oceanfront vacation rental. In 1989, we got the wild idea to buy an oceanfront property and left our home in Sausalito to become “Mendonesians”. Since we both had jobs in the wine business which allowed us to work out of our home, we have managed quite well over the years thanks to the FAX-era of the 80’s, the dial-up era of the 90’s, and finally the high-speed era of today.
The cottage was almost totally rebuilt in the 90’s and was used as our offices for several years. We also lived there while we built our new house and have very fond memories of our years in the cottage. On sunny days, we liked to sit on the porch steps for our evening glass of wine.
We have only been renting the cottage since February, 2010 and so far it's been a 100% positive experience for us, as well as our guests. We give our guests the key and we usually don't see them again until they leave, totally relaxed and happy. Most people report that the cottage is like a decompression chamber and a great escape from work, home, and city life. This is always music to our ears!
The cottage is 3 miles from Mendocino Village with many restaurants, galleries, markets, and activities. Our location is only one mile from one of the best oceanfront walking trails in the areas and within one mile of the Little River market, 3 restaurants, and a beautiful ocean view golf course..
