OCEANFRONT 'DESIRE' ALBION MENDOCINO HOME

Albion Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom + 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Accommodations: House, 1 Bedroom + 1 Queen size convertible Sofa Bed, 1 Bath (Sleeps 3) .

This very private and romantic oceanfront Mendocino home is a spacious split-level set as close to the ocean as possible so as to take full advantage of the dramatic setting. The soothing sounds of the ocean waves rolling in and crashing against the rocks below will make you feel like you are on your own private island.

This gem of a house has romantic, private, and truly million dollar expansive views of the ocean from every room. The view through the French doors is truly breathtaking. A wrought iron spiral staircase ascends to the upstairs oversized King bed. The fireplace also has an amazing view of the ocean. The night time sky reveals a starry sky unpolluted by city lights.

The hot tub on the deck outside is a great spot for sipping local wines while watching the whales and seals play in the ocean. This, one of a kind house is an ideal getaway for a honeymoon, anniversary, or that much needed and deserved time off.

This home is close driving distance to the village of Mendocino, Fort Bragg, Point Arena as well as the renowned Anderson Valley wine country.

You will understand why guests call this home 'Desire' and why they all tell us they will be back next year!

Because of the proximity of the ocean bluffs, children under 10 years and pets are not permitted.

Just what we expected....a beautiful view and private home. Hot tub was amazing and the ocean views made for a truly unforgettable experience. Has everything you need for a getaway and isn't too far from Mendocino and Fort Bragg.

Great place. Million dollar view.

  • 5 of 5
I've been up and down the northern California coast many times over the past 40 years but never stayed in a place like this. Pretty near perfect. The view is incredible and the cottage is super nice, extremely cozy. We spent five full days there. Two of the days we took incredible hikes. The other three days we spent primarily sitting on the deck, reading, and looking out at the view. Also, the owners were extremely accessible and accommodating whenever we needed to contact them. Highly recommended.

Charming home with a beautiful view!

As soon as we walked in the view took our breath away, and we knew we chose the perfect vacation rental. We grilled local king salmon on the weber grill, and used the kitchen several times to make breakfast. The fresh ground coffee was a nice touch! This was the perfect secluded getaway, we will definitely be back!

A Little Romantic Oasis

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Desire for our 1 year wedding anniversary, and we WILL be back! From the moment we walked in the door, we were blown away by the incredible views of the ocean. While we hit up some AWESOME local breakfast spots each morning (Eggheads and Queenies are a MUST), we couldn't bring ourselvs to leave in the evenings in fear of missing the BREATHTAKING sunsets over the cliffs!

If you can manage to peel yourself off the incredibly relaxing deck, or out of the private, bubbling hot tub, however, there are a few great sights in the area to see too. Fern Canyon Trail in Van Damm State Park (about 2.5 miles each way) is TOTALLY worth the hike - true to its name, it's like walking through a canyon made of ferns. The little town of Mendocino is cute too.

As for the cottage, it is perfect for relaxing. We brought a fondue pot and made fondue one night, ordered pizza from a local place another, and cooked a delicious seafood pasta another - needless to say, the kitchen includes everything you would need to make a romantic dinner in. We brought cards, scrabble and some books on tape for the evenings, but there is a DVD player if you want to bring a movie (the TV is upstairs in the loft).

I came home and recommended this place to everyone I know! A couple of tips if you go: The cottage does have internet, but it's INCREDIBLY SLOW, so don't rely on it for trying to stream anything. The closest "big" grocery store is about 15 min away in Ft Bragg, so if you can, stop at the store ahead of time to pick up any food, snacks, drinks, booze. There is a full fridge with ice cube trays. There is also a full washer/dryer. Ejoy!

Peace and Quiet!

What a wonderful, romantic little get away. Perfect for a couples retreat. We spent the vast majority of our stay just hold up at the cottage either enjoying the hot tub or just sitting on the back deck reading or just enjoying the view. It's just a quick drive 20 minute drive up the coast to the town of Mendocino and there a number of great parks for hiking along the coast. It's not really suitable for more than two people but for a couple it is perfect.
