SANCTUARY BY THE SEA-OCEANFRONT WITH HOT TUB, SLEEPS 2 TO 7

Albion House Rental Photos and Description

House, Three Bedrooms, Two Baths

We named our home Sanctuary By the Sea because it is truly a haven to relax and rejuvenate. Step away from your everyday stresses and live life as it was meant to be.

Gaze at the ocean with views for miles and miles of the dramatic Northern California coastline. Watch the wildlife—pelicans, Canadian geese, even a family of 3 bald eagles as they soar. Gray whales migrate past the cove and you have a front-row seat.

Enjoy our beautiful oceanfront home with panoramic whitewater views from virtually every room in the house. The home sits on over an acre in the exclusive gated community of Pacific Reefs in Albion. You will say “WOW” when you walk into the beautiful home and look out the window at the crashing waves. The home is open, bright and quiet—only the sound of the waves can be heard.

Master bedroom suite has spectacular whitewater views. There is a king bed with 600 thread count linen. Master bathroom has granite countertop and luxurious thick towels. Linen and towels are provided at no additional charge. 2nd bedroom has ocean views and a queen bed with luxurious linens. Large 3rd bedroom has full and twin beds.

Watch the waves crash while sitting in the warm and inviting living room with wood-burning stove. Vaulted ceilings create a spacious room. Large picture windows practically bring the outdoors in. Beautifully appointed with leather furniture. 37” TV with satellite service, DVD player, CD player and Bose & Definitive speakers.

Large dining table with comfortable seating for 8. Enjoy your meals while watching the ocean views from huge windows on 3 walls.

Fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, electric glass cooktop, microwave oven, toaster oven, icemaker and blender. Coffee grinder, coffee maker and electric tea kettle also provided.

2 spacious decks--one has a gas grill and dining area and the other has a private hot tub offering dramatic ocean views.

Why cook when there are 2 gourmet restaurants within a 5-minute drive. The Ledford House is just over the bridge (a 2-minute drive) and offers a nightly bistro dinner featuring 3 courses. Albion River Inn is just a few minutes beyond Ledford House and offers Happy Hour with wines and complimentary appetizers. We are just 7 miles south of Mendocino which has even more dining options.

Come see for yourself what you’ve been missing all your life. You’ll be back again and again.

This is a completely non-smoking property, inside and out. No pets allowed.

Since we are on septic and well, we can accommodate a maximum of 7 guests. All visitors, even those who visit during the day, are considered guests.

We rent the house by the number of bedrooms needed and number of guests. Please specify the number of guests to get an accurate quote.

We’re Janet & Flint. Although we first met in college, we went in separate directions to pursue our individual life dreams after graduation. As fate would have it, 8 years later we reconnected again in the Bay Area as we each started our careers. The timing and circumstances were apparently right, and we have been together ever since, first living in Silicon Valley and then relocating in 2010 to Santa Rosa, California.

Flint purchased this house in 2010

We had been visiting the Mendocino coast for years. When we moved to Santa Rosa, we realized that we were close enough to Mendocino to enjoy a place of our own…. a Sanctuary By the Sea. We knew this was the right property as soon as we walked in the front door and saw the spectacular oceanfront views of Whitesboro Bay. The unobstructed whitewater and coast views are the ultimate in relaxation, especially from the private hot tub. We love spending time at the Sanctuary but our work schedules keep us from visiting as much as we would like. We decided to start sharing the Sanctuary just last year with VRBO guests.

Sanctuary By the Sea has the unique blend of seclusion and privacy (private community with locked gate), yet very close to the unique and diverse activities of the Mendocino coast. Just 7 miles north is the quaint village of Mendocino, with world-class restaurants and shopping. We are close to the wine tasting region of Anderson Valley as well as the unspoiled beauty of hiking, kayaking, canoeing and diving in several nearby state parks. There is a sand beach just 5 minutes away. Or, just simply relax… at the Sanctuary By the Sea.

Perfect getaway in rain or sun

  • 5 of 5
If you're hungry for a chance to step off the merry-go-round of your life and truly relax for a few days, Sanctuary by the Sea is a great place to go. My husband and I drove up to Mendocino on a Saturday morning in a heavy rainstorm. The moment I entered the house's cozy living room and took in the spectacular, sweeping views of the sea through a wall of expansive windows, I felt the tensions of the week float away. We spent the next day and a half enjoying the views as we relaxed in front of the wood-burning stove in the living room and soaked in the steamy hot tub on the back deck.

After lunch on our first day, we were ready to get some exercise. Figuring that the nearby park trails might be too muddy, we headed up to the bluffs hugging downtown Mendocino and had a lovely walk in the drizzle before heading back to the Sanctuary's hot tub.

The house itself is well-maintained, spotlessly clean, and comfortably furnished. The couches in the living room are inviting, and we enjoyed watching the Olympics on the big screen TV. The bedroom we slept in off the dining room has a gorgeous view of an isolated cove and the bed and linens are top quality.

We so enjoyed our stay at Sanctuary by the Sea that leaving at the end of our weekend wasn't easy. But we consoled ourselves with the idea that, with any luck, we'll be back soon.

Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5
This home was the perfect get away for a long weekend. Fully equipped, comfortable, and views to die for! The wall of glass overlooking the ocean was incredible to wake up to each morning. Just a few minutes to Mendocino and a few more to Fort Bragg, yet in a quiet, peaceful location.

Amazing views, great comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5
The house is right at the edge of the small cliff and has some amazing views. The house was very clean, well kept and very comfortable.

The only thing to note is that, there were no walks/hikes close by. And the dogs in a neighboring house could be a menace.

Would go there again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review--we're glad you enjoyed your stay. Just a couple clarifications. There is a hiking trail 1 mile south of the house along the edge of the ocean. There is also hiking in the Navarro Redwoods 15 minutes from the house. As for the dogs, the house next door is a rental and pets are allowed at that house. I will be sure to include the number for the rental agency if they should have a menacing pet, as they are not allowed outside of their property.

Amazing Weekend - Just what we all needed

  • 5 of 5
Sanctuary By the Sea was our home base for an amazing 4 day weekend in Northern California. My in-laws flew in from Colorado and we enjoyed a breathtaking drive up Hwy 1 from the Bay Area. We immediately fell in love with the Sanctuary House. Between the stunning views and the wide open floor plan with wood burning stove and sea-side hot tub, we were very comfortable. The owners have thought of everything and the house is well stocked and well maintained. The owner was very accommodating and helpful in the planning process and made sure all of our questions were answered before our arrival. Only warning I have - print a map before you go, as there is very limited cell/gps service in the area. The house had fast wifi so we had great internet but no cell service, which turned out to be a blessing and enforced our goal of relaxation.

Wonderful Stay Again!
We returned for another visit. We just love the amazing views of the Mendocino coast—it’s wonderful to watch the waves crash and the sunsets were special. The hot tub added to the ambience, and watching the birds dive was entertaining. The kitchen is even better stocked than last year, with more than enough tools and equipment for in-house meals. The living room invites reading, music or TV. The views from the dining room and living room are spectacular. The house is exceptionally clean, and well maintained. Trips into the quaint town of Mendocino are easy. We hope to return again.
