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!
Ginny or Norm purchased this house in 1989
My husband and I stayed hear because we need an ocean fix once in awhile. We live in the high desert but, we love the ocean. The cottage had awesome veiws of the ocean. It was very clean and quite and relaxing. My husband enjoyed the walks down to the beach cove. We also appreciate the information Ginny gave us for where to eat and things to do within driving distance. We will probably stay here again sometime in the future.
My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary! The view was amazing! Listening to the water hit the rocks in the cove, watching phenomenal sunsets each night right from the front porch or island in the cove and then waking up and seeing this view without even getting out of bed was just so nice! We also had a great dinner nearby at Little River Inn and had the best clam chowder ever! Thanks Ginny and Norm for wonderful rental and recommendations for places to go during our stay. Will definitely book this again when we return to this area! We didn't want to leave!
We had a marvelous, relaxed weekend stay at Norm and Ginny's cottage just south of Little River Inn near Mendocino. The cottage was clean and perfect for two. My husband and I had a really nice time. Norm and Ginny were great to work with; friendly, helpful and though their house is right next door, once they showed us around, we never saw them again until it was time to leave. My favorite part about the cottage was laying in bed in the morning, looking out at the ocean, trees and the cove below the house. Watching the sunset from the porch was awesome! Also, don't miss the bunnies - they're very cute! Thanks again, Norm and Ginny. We appreciate your hospitality and loved your place. Thanks for sharing!
Ginny and Norm's Dream cottage was a wonderful getaway for me and my husband. The cottage has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay and the location is just amazing. The house is just minutes away from Mendocino Village where you’ll find plenty of shops and restaurants. If you prefer a private getaway, you can sit back and enjoy the amazing view from the porch of the cottage or walk down to the nearby secluded beach and relax by the water.
You’ll never be at a loss for things to do. Ginny has thoughtfully listed countless suggestions for outings and restaurants in the area. We followed her suggestions and we were never disappointed.
We highly recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking for a relaxing getaway with a gorgeous ocean view!
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..
