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!

A SLICE OF HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing place to stay - a slice of Heaven!

Ginny & Norm were incredibly gracious hosts and made me and my husband feel right at home the second we arrived at this cottage in Little River. The cottage is warm, cozy, and situated on a lovely plot of land with the view of the cove, an island, a beach and of course the great blue Pacific - right from the bedroom window. As a matter of fact, you get to enjoy the magnificent views from all the rooms of the cottage (except the bathroom). The inside of the cottage is so impeccably clean and tastefully decorated that we wanted to spend most of our time indoors, watching the DVDs which were there in the room too. We also enjoyed the sweet little surprise - jam,sourdough bread, butter,chocolates that waited for us and an array of ingredients / kitchen utensils for our use. You name it and they got it!! :)

The cottage is just remote enough to feel like a peaceful forest retreat, while still being close to lovely shops, cafés, restaurants, and the Mendocino downtown. I wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy more of this cozy n romantic cottage and all that Mendocino had to offer! We will be back soon, and we highly recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to enjoy peace and tranquility and a breathtaking ocean view! Ginny & Norm, thanks a whole bunch for being so helpful and thoughtful towards your guests.

FABULOUS "OCEAN FIX"

Fabulous "ocean fix"
  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Ginny and Norm's Dream cottage was so relaxing and refreshing -- The ocean was beautiful and ever changing; all the mirrors in the cottage helped bring the outdoors inside from every room; Ginny's photos thru out the house were tastefully displayed; and we had a most enjoyable 4 1/2 days. We cooked breakfast in and ventured out for dinner, making it a nice change from our usual routine and rest for the "cook". We will be back soon, and we highly recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to enjoy peace and quiet and a gorgeous ocean view!
P.S. The Austrian Sunflower bread, butter and Gourmet coffee were an added pleasure :)

BEAUTIFUL HIDEAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We wanted to spend some time on the coast between Mt Shasta and Yosemite. This cottage was the perfect retreat. The view is amazing, and the access to the shops and restaurants in Mendocino is easy and quick. The cottage is well appointed and the owners were welcoming and accommodating.

SECLUDED COTTAGE ON THE COAST

  • 5 of 5
First of all, the cottage itself is very picturesque. The inside is very neat and cozy and you're looking right out onto a small cove which has a decently private little beach at the bottom. The cottage had great accommodations (some food, etc.), was very clean, and was very well prepared. The cottage is right next to the owner's house, but the owners were happy to give us plenty of space. Also, they gave us a big document of recommendations for the whole area which was really fantastic. We hadn't planned anything and used it to plan just about every meal, and it was great. Wonderful place, would recommend to anyone.

COZY AND CHARMING SEASIDE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I loved staying in this seaside cottage! To begin with, the hosts made the reservation process so easy and were very accomodating with answering questions prior to our trip. When we arrived, we knew right away that the photos and video did not do the cottage justice. In person, you'll be taken with the beautiful views of the well-kept cottage and its charming details. The cottage was thoughtfully decorated and stocked with DVDs, board games, and card games for a fun staycation. We loved all the information Ginny left in a neat binder about the cottage, the nearby towns, and recommendations on nearby attractions/sights. We also enjoyed the local goods provided for us - jam, sourdough bread, butter... and an array of ingredients and kitchen utensils for our use. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking to have a relaxing weekend in a breathtaking place.

SIMPLY PUT - AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently stayed at this lovely cottage for a week. Words cannot describe the natural beauty of this particular spot. The pictures and video of this location are spot on! Both my husband and I haven't slept this well in several years. Ginny and Norm are the sweetest people and we wish we could have spent more time to get to know them personally. The cottage is very well laid out, not a bit of space wasted, yet quite roomy. At first I was concerned we'd be listening to waves crashing all night but the house is so well insulated that you hear absolutely nothing, which is what we needed. Everything you need is provided and a special touch of fresh bread, butter, organic jam and coffee were a sweet addition. When we arrived, Norm took us down to the beach and showed us everything we needed to know, and then you never hear or see them again, truly you will never know they are even there. The site is so pristine and dramatic. We so enjoyed the changing of the tides and the wild bunnies on the lawn just outside the front door. You truly feel like there is no one else in the world but you and your beloved. By the way, the photos in the cabin were done by Ginny. Love the one in the bathroom and over the fireplace, beautiful. Norm provided some excellent advise regarding the area and you should listen to him, he's right! Thanks Ginny and Norm for sharing this beautiful location with the rest of us. God Bless!
