Guestbook comments from the owner

Review Rating: 5/5



Review Text: "We love Northern California. Mendocino has been our

favorite for years - so we were hesitant when we decided to venture South to

Gualala. But, we must admit this place is absolutely a gem. Spectacular

Views, Lots of Sunshine, Abundant Wildlife and the quality of this

home is tough to beat anywhere.



Like others here, we stay in lots of homes when traveling and

traditionally stay in the very best we can find. But, 'Serendipity' is a

masterpiece of fine living. Secluded, yet easily accessible to all this area

offers. Fine Shopping, Great Massages, Dining, Parks, Canoeing and

Beautful Beaches. Wineries are all over the area and you'll love a glass in

the relaxing hot-tub, that like the rest of the property is well

positioned for privacy and views.



In todays world it's kinda neat to spend some time in a home powered in

part by solar energy - and realized you have sacrificed nothing in

comfort, and leave feeling a bit smarter in the process.



Ethan Allen furniture, hardwoods, granite and stone...this place is

perfect for any length of time, any time of the year.



Lastly...a vacation is hard to forget when you come home refreshed and

feeling you had made a great choice. The owners are available, helpful

and the perfect hosts - although you may never actually see them. Every

detail is perfect and the beds are to die for.



If you like the best - you'll love this place!"

Spectacular property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have thoroughly enjoyed two weeks in this beautiful home. The house itself is most impressive - outstanding design, exceptional materials and workmanship, with a layout to maximize the sea views and capture the light. Then of course, it has a perfect location with panoramic views of the river and the shore, all within walking distance from Gualala's commercial center and close to many excellent hiking trails. We also want to comment on the beautiful furnishings and all the amenities - including first-class kitchen outfitting.

We appreciated the owners taking a personal interest in our stay, checking in with us and providing tips for nearby activities.

This was a wonderful break from our oppressive heat in Houston and we look forward to returning!

Beautiful views of ocean and river

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home with beautiful views of ocean and river. Our little group rents this house annually. We always have a very enjoyable and relaxing time. There is a nice deck and hot tub. The kitchen has more supplies than I have at home. We have fun watching the birds and the deer. Every day we go for walks. Gualala regional park is just a few minutes away by car, and can be seen from the house.

Relaxation at a stunning home

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderfully comfortable and relaxing home. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay here a memorable one. I like watching the ocean from the hot tub or one of the decks.

There is lots to enjoy about the home and lots to explore in town and the parks.

I've stayed here several years now and always enjoy returning for our annual women's retreat.

You,too, won't be disappointed with this great location and all the amenities.

Lovely Escape on California North Coast

  • 5 of 5

With visiting relatives, this was my first stay at this very charming, extremely well furnished beach house with a huge picture window overlooking the Gualala River mouth and Pacific Ocean, and with decks galore including an outdoor hot tub. We (three couples) cooked up a storm, relaxed inside and out (with a bit of January California rain), walked into town and drove North and South to several of the area's myriad beaches. We've stayed at other beach houses, but this was definitely a cut above.

A tip from a local, when we drove north to Point Arena, we were encouraged to stop at the "outhouse" on the way to the lighthouse. Stopping at a port-a-potty within sight of the lighthouse, just before the road turns right, we parked, went through a gate and walked left to find great views of the ocean bluffs and a small waterfall
