PERFECT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Seal Reef was the perfect retreat. The home is gorgeous, secluded, with beautiful views from every room, and full of light. The photos do not accurately capture the beautifully appointed interior, and breathtaking views.

I spent as much time as possible on the deck watching the seals, and tried to be home nightly for the amazing sunsets. The house is located in a safe, friendly neighborhood within walking distance of Russian Gulch State Park, and the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse.
The unique shopping and great restaurants in nearby Mendocino and Fort Bragg are a must.

Highly recommend: The Headlands Coffee House in Fort Bragg - excellent coffee, food, nightly music and owned by locals.

The Owners were very responsive and accommodating which made for a hassle-free experience. Would definitely recommend, and love to stay again.

ABSOLUTE OCEANFRONT IS SPOT ON!!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented Seal Reef for 4th of July long weekend - our daughter and 2 friends joined us for the weekend…we were looking for a place to unwind, Seal Reef delivered. When on vacation, rentals and hotels we stay need to be equivalent to our home - too old to rough it! Beth and Michael have tastefully renovated this lovely home. Immaculate, comfortable, amazing views and private. Pictures on this site are spot on!

Kids (26 and 27) living in San Francisco also gave Seal Reef "can't get better than this"

Renting logistics….smooth and easy - Michael and Beth are delightful hosts.

Highly recommend!!!

AMAZING HOME AND LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
A group of friends came up to enjoy the film festival in Mendocino. When we got to the house, we knew we would only see two films a day so that we'd have time to just enjoy the amazing home and setting. The place is situated on a gorgeous bluff - seemingly remote and at the end of the world. That said, we were only a few minutes from town and from a state park with magnificent hiking trails. The home is gorgeous and beautifully appointed and with quality furnishings and a kitchen outfitted for serious cooking. We loved every minute and can't wait to come back.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Seal reef is an amazing and wonderful home! Elizabeth and Michael were perfect hosts. My husband I traveled to Mendocino to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary and were accompanied by 2 of our best couple friends. The house fit all of us perfectly and the views were absolutely breathtaking! Watching the seals from the back deck every morning while sipping on coffee was a favorite for sure. A wonderful kitchen to accomidate all your cooking needs and the beds and bedding were as cozy and comfortable as ever! I would highly recommend this home for any occasion and I can only hope that we will make it back there! Thanks Elizabeth and Michael for helping us celebrate:) my only regret of the trip was not getting to meet you in person and hug your neck!

A PERFECT HOLIDAY!

  • 5 of 5
Words cannot describe the incredible vista at Seal Reef nor the generous hospitality of Michael and Elizabeth. Windows line the entire length of this beautiful home offering guests an up-close and personal view of the Pacific Ocean, seals sunbathing on the reef below, and migrating grey whales spouting and spy hopping. My husband and I, along with our two adult children, spent Christmas week at Seal Reef. Michael and Elizabeth greeted us upon arrival, pointed out the 5’ Christmas tree made from driftwood on the front porch, and then shared details about the house. The next day, Elizabeth telephoned and asked if we wanted any board games and within hours, while we were out, Scrabble and Pictionary appeared on the coffee table. Elizabeth also emailed a list of local outdoor areas to explore. The following day Michael telephoned and asked if we had seen the whales yet then suggested we look outside. There, no more than a quarter mile out, were two grey whales!

During our stay, our son did a 26 mile bike ride on the Mendocino Woodlands fire roads, we hiked the beach trails in Russian Gulch State Park (walking distance from the house), and walked to town for happy hour. Each night we grilled Dungeness Crabs on the outdoor fire pit and, after dinner, had drinks on the deck to take in the gorgeous and expansive night skies. It was the perfect holiday! Thank you Michael and Elizabeth for sharing Seal Reef with us.
