This comfortably luxurious oceanfront home is complimented by a dramatic setting in one of Mendocino’s most exclusive and well-maintained coastal neighborhoods. The house is conveniently located between Russian Gulch State Park and Point Cabrillo Lighthouse State Park (both within easy walking distance), just one mile north of the historic Mendocino Artists Village.
This home is set 30 feet above a protected cove where relaxation and inspiration take on new meaning. It is safe and quiet except for the sound of surf and seagulls. Appropriately named SEAL REEF , it offers an endless attraction for watching seals basking in the sun with their pups on the reef below, migrating whales, porpoise jumping and pelicans in formation as they glide inches above the water.
'AWESOME' is understated. Seal Reef is a surreal place where nature's beauty and incredible power are right in your back yard. Guests of all ages enjoy the time they get to spend here.
Mendocino is a world famous, low-key vacation destination with a myriad of invigorating outdoor activities that include endless miles of bicycling and hiking through majestic redwoods and fern canyons or along beach trails. Kayaking through sea caves and on one of the serene rivers is an incredible adventure. The heart of Anderson Valley Wine Growing Region and wine tastings is a 40 minutes drive. Cultural highlights are the annual Music Festival, Salmon Festival, Whale Festival, Crab and Wine Festival and More.
This home is pet/smoke free and thoroughly sanitized between guests. Seal Reef is completely turn-key with WiFi internet, DVD plus streaming NETFLIX movies and is tastefully furnished including a gourmet kitchen, granite counter tops throughout , stone and glass showers and hardwood floors. All the comforts of home AND MORE in a private beachfront community.

A lovely property with a wonderful view of the ocean and surrounding shoreline! The grounds were pristine, and so was the house. We are all very tall people. The master bedroom was awesome. However the other two bedrooms had extremely comfortable mattresses, but the beds were only double sized. So several of our number had feet hanging over the edge of the bed. Would not recommend this property for 3 adult couples of more than average height. The only other slight criticism I could offer is that there is really no comfortable place in the house to sit and read after dark that has enough light for old eyes--like mine--to see well. A taller lamp by the sofa would be welcome. All in all, though, it was great. As I said, the kitchen was wonderful--best equipped of any VRBO home I have ever stayed in. The owners were gracious, helpful, and accommodating. Thank you for a lovely Christmas.
Seal Reef is an idyllic location and the home is beautifully furnished and equipped with all the things you need for a great vacation. Everything was perfect.
The house has everything you can possibly think of! The owners are very helpful and friendly. We truly felt at home with all the amenities. We biked, hiked and went to local restaurants with our children as well as cooked at home. Next time we will plan more biking trips and kayaking. After a long day, we enjoyed ourselves watching incredible sunsets over the ocean.
We stay on the Mendocino coast often and this house was one of our favorites. It's in an absolutley beautiful spot - regardless of the weather - and the house is lovely, comfortable and well stocked.
We look forward to our next trip.
Stayed here for four nights when the weather was fantastic. The house sits adjacent to the ocean, just north of Mendocino, and the views are spectacular. One evening we watched migrating whales from the deck; and we had a seal colony on the rocks just below the house. The house is nicely furnished, very comfortable and a pleasure to spend time in. We cooked dinner at the house several nights, because just sitting there and looking out at the sunset was the best thing we could do. Many wonderful things to do nearby, though sitting here was equally enjoyable.
Now that we're settled back at home we took a peek at our amazing pictures from our vacation in California at Seal Reef and they brings back all the wonderful family memories we created in Mendocino!
After our wonderful stay at Seal Reef we can hardly wait to book the house for next year! Elizabeth and Michael are so welcoming and communicated everything we needed to know regarding our stay before our trip and were there to walk us through a few things when we arrived.
We were thrilled to have a such lovely, calm and private place to call home for our trip. Seal Reef is immaculately cared for and we felt comfortable instantly. The furnishings are lovely, the couches comfy, bathrooms beautiful and beds are peaceful. Its light and bright and situated with beautiful views from every room.
Our kids could hardly wait to run out and count the seals each morning, we saw 19 one day and it was so entertaining to see them flop off the rocks into the water (of course, binoculars were thoughtfully provided!)
Every night after cooking dinner in the perfectly equipped kitchen, we opened the doors to let the sunset & sound of the surf accompany our dinner. The small market in Mendocino has absolutely everything you could possibly need, whether its a bottle of wine or a jug of milk.
When we weren't hiking in one of the many, near by parks or splashing in the ocean we were sitting on the absolutely amazing deck watching the waves roll in! There is so much to do within a short distance it is easy to spend the morning exploring and pop back to the house for lunch then hit the beach with a cooler for the rest of the day. It's perfectly located for so many wonderful adventures.
Elizabeth and Michael are thoughtful and helpful with recommendations for places to visit, eat and play! We very much enjoyed our stay at Seal Reef and know that any other family will do the same! We can hardly wait to go back!
