Overview

Mendocino House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Spectacular oceanfront home in the Village of Mendocino, within walking distance to town, restaurants, shopping, and at the start of the Mendocino Headlands. Fully-furnished kitchen open to dining area which is open to the living area. A very large solarium is in the center of the home with the rest of the house opening to and wrapped perfectly around so that where ever you are, there it is... The ocean, the headlands, the sunsets, the whales, and the breathtaking views!

Just outside the two sliders of the solarium is a large deck with lots of deck furniture. On a more private deck but with a equally great view is the hot tub.

The gourmet kitchen has double ovens and gas cook-top with all the necessary equipment, dishes, pots and pans, serving bowls and platters, china, wine glasses. Also a fully-supplied pantry with spices, flour, sugar, coffee... Most of the basics.

All on a private approximately one-half acre lot. Available for small weddings or events.

Our favorite vacation home

  • 5 of 5

For the 3rd consecutive summer we have spent a week at Headlands House, and, as usual, it did not fail to delight. Some upgrades had been done over the last year, although they were hardly needed. The house is more than comfortable, the view is magnificent and the location is perfect. We were able to walk into town and avoid searching for a parking place, especially to watch the 4th of July Parade, which delighted all of us, including our 4 year-old grandson. The house was spotless and the kitchen is perfect, although with all the great restaurants in the area, we only used it for breakfast. We would definitely recommend.

The ultimate place to stay in Mendcino

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all... The location is just a short distance from the main streets in Mendocino. The house sits on the cliff looking out to the most beautiful ocean views with decks that look out. The solarium is truly the BEST. This a great place to gather and have a party, or just sit and do some reading. The kitchen is set up perfectly with great counter tops and nice appliances. Each bedroom was very comfortable with the master bedroom to be absolutely stunning. When we arrived, the place was very clean. We plan to stay here again in the future.

Breathtaking House

  • 5 of 5

This is house a word is breathtaking. Not only can I not wait to go back, but when I shared family pictures with friends, they all asked me where they could rent this house too. It's worth staying there for the Solarium alone. A wall of windows overlooking the waves crashing into the bluffs, but shielded from the strong winds and chilly air. The deck is equally amazing. The hot tub was fun to use. And there were 3 king sized beds, so my husband and I could stay with his parents and mine, and we were all comfortable. No awkward twin beds! The house is huge. The bedrooms are all large. The one I stayed in had gorgeous ocean views. The kitchen is huge and upgraded. There are laundry facilities. Really, everything you could ask for, and then some. The house was also very clean and very well up-kept, which I appreciated. No spider infestations. The front yard even had a play house for my daughter. That was such a special surprise when we arrived. She has that same playhouse at her preschool and was so excited to see it. The walk along the headlands is right around the corner, and it was a short walk into town, so we didn't need our cars. I really can't recommend this house enough, and can't imagine staying anywhere else. Thank you, Ruth, for sharing your amazing house with my family. It's a memory I will treasure.

Unparalleled views and super comfy home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed twice and both times were great. The setting and views are phenomenal and ensure a unique experience. The home is well appointed and comfortable for up to three couples. The kitchen has everything you need and more with all details well thought out. Wifi works great and the living room includes a river stone fireplace and entertainment system. We will be back.

This was our first year at Headlands House for our annual coast ladies' getaway. Our previous rental house was sold. We were very disappointed until we arrived at Headlands. This is a lovely home and very well-maintained. The star attraction is the ocean view which is observable from many rooms as well as the deck. We hope to come back for many years to come.
