IRISH BEACH QUAINT CUSTOM HOME, SCENIC OCEAN VIEW WITH HOT TUB

Manchester House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our home is the perfect fit for all types people. If you are looking for a relaxing weekend by the beach, go pick up some freshly caught fish at our local market and cook a scrumptious dinner and for desert, enjoy a cocktail as you watch the sunset from our hot tub.

If you are looking for more of an outdoor experience, go abalone diving or fishing and have a barbeque and enjoy the wildlife.

Or if you are a shopaholic, head up to Mendocino and visit all of the stores and enjoy the north coast.

For sleeping amenities, we have a master bedroom, a guest bedroom and a sun room, each with ocean views. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed with its own full bathroom. The guest room is also a queen-sized bed but doesn't have a connecting bathroom. The sun room has a lazy boy couch with a pull out mattress that will sleep two.

We chose this location because of the area it sits in. We love the fact that you can either be in the outdoors and go hiking or diving, or you can just stay in and relax on the couch. Its in the perfect location because you are close enough to everything, but just far enough away too!

Very short walk to private beach, beautiful scenery and wildlife, great shops and restaurants nearby, scenic drives with breathtaking view points, and all-around a great time.

NEGLIGENT, UNRESPONSIVE OWNER

  • 2 of 5
Before we rented we communicated with the owner by email. He said he had not figured out how to accept payment by credit card, so would we please pay by check? (No problem.) Then when we asked for a rental contract, he said he preferred to keep it informal. To be fair, he did offer to prepare a rental contract, but we had had perfect luck with many Sea Ranch and Irish Beach rentals till this one, so in the spirit of his request we agreed to keep our arrangement informal. We arrived for our weeklong January 2012 stay to a note on the counter saying that the hot tub was broken and would not be working for the duration of our stay. Then the house book said to not use the fireplace and the heater at the same time because the heater would draw the fireplace smoke back into the house. Other notes said to not use the kitchen sink disposal or the trash compactor because both were broken. The oven made a racket when we used it and it kept making a racket after we turned it off, probably due to a faulty convection fan. Water leaked through living room ceiling window seals. Numerous light bulbs throughout the house were out or missing. The grates in the old charcoal barbecue out back were nearly rusted through. The stained, weather-beaten deck chairs had to be covered to use. The roof shakes were covered with moss. There was not enough hot water to enjoy the two heads in the shower for more than a minute or two. With one head there was barely enough hot water for a normal shower. After our stay we asked the owner by email about some of these issues, especially the hot tub and fireplace, and received no response. We had to stop payment on our security deposit check because the owner did not return it and did not explain why. Perhaps not cashing it was the owner's way of returning it? We'll never know because the owner refused to communicate. This is a beautiful, comfortable home, and very well kept other than that noted above. But we wouldn't rent it again from the same owner for obvious reasons. The house is on the market. Perhaps that explains the lack of maintenance.

Owner's Response: Dear Joel and Elizabeth,
I'm so very sorry that your stay was less than perfect. I fully apologize and take full respnsibility for the miscommunication.
I'm sorry about the email mix up, I did attempt to contact you via the address that I beleived was correct and never had any response. Somehow we must have got our wires crossed with the email addresses.
As far as the hot tub issue, unfortunately with the hottub situation, our property manager had only disocovered that there was in issue with it a day prior to your stay, and it was improbably for us to be able to fix it on time, and we do apologize for that as well.
As far as all of the other issues, I assure you that they have been taken care of. Our previous property manager wasn't (obviously) handling things the way we would have liked, and i can assure you that all of the issues stated above were taken care of.
Lastly as far as the security check goes, yes we do shred them and dispose accordingly. Again sorry for the miscommunication.

Feel free to send me an email and we can work something out to get you guys up there again so we can get you a much better expperience.

Sincerly,
Dillon

CHRISTMAS 2011

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 has stayed numerous times over the last 20 years at Irish Beach. Without a doubt your home is one of the finest it’s been our pleasure to enjoy. From comfortable beds, living room sofas and recliners, to an extremely well provisioned kitchen, clean windows and great lighting, it’s pretty much the complete package. It is an extremly well desigined home and we loved the decorating touches throughout the house.

FAMILY AND FRIENDS GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Very nice property. The house is beautiful with a great floor plan for visiting. A well equipped kitchen made staying in and relaxing a great choice. Bedrooms were large and very comfortable as was the sleeper sofa. The hot tub was enjoyed nightly by all along with the regular visits from the deer and Quail. Nice walk down to the beach, remember to ask for the gate key if you are driving down to it. Had a great tour of the Point Arena Lighthouse, highly recommended, beautiful view from up top. Also, went horseback riding in the mountains (beach rides were available also), great views!
A great time was had by all, plannig on visiting again next year.
