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!

There just don't seem to be enough adjectives to praise this cottage! If you have ever dreamed about the perfect spot on the Mendocino Coast, this is it. Ginny and Norm are fantastic hosts and have thought of everything to make your stay memorable...fully supplied kitchen, relaxing living room, cozy and comfy bedroom, and well-equipped bathroom...all beautifully appointed inside with fabulous views of your own cove. Did I forget to mention that there's a path to the beach? And an adorable bunny who would visit us. Convenient to everything Mendocino Coast. It's the only place we ever want to stay in on the Coast. We have found our coastal Shangri La!

My husband and I just recently stayed in this lovely cottage for our honeymoon and had so much fun. There's an amazing view of the ocean and a little walkway that leads down to the beach. The cottage is in a great location, pretty secluded and just about a 6 minute drive to Mendocino. It was our first time up to Mendocino and we were very happy to stay here and plan to come again soon. The owners provided jam, bread and coffee in the cottage kitchen upon our arrival, which was very nice. We loved the cozy feel to it as well.

Look at the photos - (they're really what you'll see), read the reviews -(they're accurate) - this is the place to stay!!! Gorgeous location, immaculate cottage which is nicely furnished, (love the heated bed), and gracious hosts who provided travel tips and maps. What more could you ask for! We especially enjoyed directions to "the best beach hike" - a hidden path along the ocean! The cove is beautiful - we spent several nights enjoying wine watching the waves come in. The location is perfect - just south of Mendocino and just outside of the wine country in Anderson Valley. We are hoping to return soon!!

An ocean front cottage is very difficult to find on the Mendocino coast and we enjoyed this cottage for 4 nights. The view is wonderful -- especially at night with a full moon. We so enjoyed sitting on the bench in front and just watching the ocean. The cottage itself is very cosy and comfortable. Norm and Ginny will make your stay truly enjoyable.
We hope to come back again soon.
