GREAT TIME

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time. The house is charming, the view is great. The beds are so so comfortable. We enjoyed watching the wild turkeys and the deer. Very clean and very relaxing. If we get to Mendocino again, we will want to stay here.

Owner's Response: I am so happy these guests enjoyed their time in our cottage which has been in the family for three generations. We got a new cleaning service and are very happy about this. I actually got a call from these guests and they are buying a new mattress like one of those in the cottage!

WONDERFUL TIME!

  • 5 of 5
We love this property. The view is great and the house was sweet. We felt right at home from the second we walked in the door. The kids had a great time playing hide & seek on the acreage and the dog loved chasing them around. We will be returning.

Poorly maintained property; dirty and not stocked

  • 2 of 5
The only way I can describe our first impression of the house is shocked by the peeling paint, spiderwebs, and overgrown weeds, with obviously no grounds maintenance in quite some time. The screens on most windows are torn and need replacing. The jacuzzi top was covered with debris and spider webs. A broken and tattered umbrella lay on top of it.

As first impressions go, this rental was NOT inviting. We discovered sticky counters in the kitchen, old frying oil in a bowl sitting on the microwave, crumbs on the chairs, toothpaste in the bathroom sink that hadn't been cleaned out, and cobwebs everywhere inside. It looked like the place hadn’t been touched since the last guests left, except for clean towels and made beds.

In addition, there was not a single roll of toilet paper in the house. We spent the first hour of our stay cleaning the place. We had to make a run to the market to purchase the basic necessities, including paper towels, kleenex, napkins and, of course, toilet paper.

The water from the faucets taste and smell strongly of sulfur and after running it a bit, the whole house reeked of sulfur. (We went back to the market for air freshener and drinking water.)

The thermostat for the furnace didn’t work despite following the directions. We had already paid for a week’s stay and therefore had to purchase wood and matches to heat the house. All of this added to the cost of our stay quite a lot.

There’s poor lighting in the house. During the day it’s not an issue, but after dark there’s not enough light in the living room to read by. Only one dim lamp. We used our headlamps to read in the evening hours.

While there we contacted the owner who then apologized and offered to pay back our cleaning deposit. To date, a week later, we have not heard from her nor received the refunded deposit.

Prior to arriving, the owner had asked if we were okay with having a cable person come by during our stay there. We declined and she agreed to wait until after our visit. One day we came back from a trip into town to discover a cable worker alone inside the house with none of us present.

This small house and it’s location has great potential. It sits on very nice land and the small house itself can be comfortable and quiet. The beds were great. Solid stove and refrigerator. Furniture was decent. There is a nice Fisher wood stove in the living room.

We managed to enjoy our stay, however we would not choose to return unless things change.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry they had such a bad experience. We just recently had the entire water system redone. I did not know there was an issue. It has been taken care of. I sent my cleaning people there after the guest complained to re-clean and stock the house. They are the ones who let the Comcast guy in. Comcast had been requested to change the appointment date, but failed to do so. The furnace works fine. If they had called me I could have helped them. We want everyone to have a great time there. It is such a charming house.

Unacceptable

  • 1 of 5
My daughter and I rented this "cabin" for 4 nights; we stayed 4 hours and found a wonderful hotel. No amount of money lost on rental could have kept us there for 1 night. It is more like a trailer than a cabin; it is dark; uncomfortable and in need of major work. The wall heater does not come close to reaching the bedrooms which were the only spaces that looked at all hopeful.
If you like camping this would be perfectly fine. I can be discerning but even my 21 year old daughter agreed that she wouldn't be able to stand it!

Owner's Response: I am so sorry this person did not enjoy the cottage. We have guests who return year after year for the last 15+ years and really love it. The heating system is relatively new and, as the guest mentioned, the cottage is pretty small--about 1,000 square feet with two bedrooms and one bath. Since it is small, the heating system has always been adequate for me and has warmed the bedrooms. Also, there is a wood-burning stove that lends heat and charm. I have never had anyone else say the heating system does not reach the bedrooms. The walls are beautiful, polished redwood and that might seem "dark" to some, but to many it is cozy and very appropriate in an area that is famous for redwood trees. The ceilings are high and white-washed wood which does lighten up the rooms. The cottage, to many of us, is very charming with a great view and plenty of land for kids and dogs to run. There is a creek that runs through the property that lends great fun for water-lovers and explorers. It is an attraction for wildlife such as turkeys, frogs, deer, birds, etc. To many of us, it is a great refuge and place to unwind!

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5
We so much enjoyed our stay at this property. The cottage is so quaint and the view is incredible. From the living room window we were able to view migrating whales. The beds are wonderful and the kitchen was stocked with spices. We enjoyed the hot tub and our dog loved running around the property and playing in the creek. We will make this our destination of choice when visiting Mendocino!

Not so great....

  • 2 of 5
We were really disappointed with this "cottage". It was more like a doubewide trailer. The heater would not turn on and there was not enough wood for the weekend...we were freezing! The dishwasher was falling out of the cabinet, the coffee maker didn't work, and the hot tub water was so dirty the girls didn't want to get in.
On the bright side the dogs had a ball, the beds were comfy (not the pullout bed though) and the view was great. Would NOT return.

Owner's Response: Sadly, you can't please everyone. Unbeknownst to us, for about a month the filter on the hot tub needed repair. It has been taken care of. Apparently this guest could not figure out how to turn on the heater. It's pretty easy to do. Just turn up the thermostat. Our maintenance guy has checked it out and it works fine. It is a propane heater so it is a good idea to check the pilot light, but that was on. Also, if they had read the Rental Agreement (which they signed) it states we do not guarantee there will be wood available. it mentions in the Agreement places to purchase wood in the area. We try to keep it stocked but it is not always possible.
