Overview

About the property

House - 2 Bedrooms - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 2-4)

Garden lovers and romantics alike will especially enjoy this charming cottage that has the best of both worlds--views of the ocean and a garden setting. Enjoy a romantic breakfast or lunch in the secluded North Coast garden surrounded by flowers and tall trees that are protected from the cold winds on the bluffs. Soak in our Japanese cedar hot tub in the same private setting to the sound of the little rushing stream and waterfall in the gulch below. Our deck is perfect for basking in the sun during the day or stargazing at night.

The house is light and bright with vaulted ceilings, skylights, and French doors looking on the garden. Enjoy evening warmth by the Finnish wood-burning stove in this cozy home with a open kitchen perfect for entertaining with friends. There is also an antique carved piano or satellite TV for evening enjoyment. The romantic Master bed is filled with down comforters and flowing, sheer curtains. Wake up to the view of the ocean framed by the coastal forest.

About Kim Kelly

We are a family of three that loves to travel to special artistic places around the world... and Mendocino is one of those special places!

Kim Kelly purchased this house in 2001

Why Kim Kelly chose North Coast California

Mendocino is the perfect place for us because of the pristine beauty of nature, the arts and culture in the area and amazing restaurants and wineries. We came to Mendocino for the first time 10 years ago and fell in love with the place and were married on the romantic ocean cliffs there. It is truly a unique, perfect place lost in time and once you visit you will not want to leave.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kim is a wonderful host. Nothing much I can say for the house but pure happiness and the house was perfect! All the things we need, it's all there. The location is perfect since it's just a couple of minutes away from point cabrillo, fort bragg, and the mendocino proper. Very accessible and the place was so quiet and really private. We were lucky that when we were there, the weather was on point and all day sunny. We were able to use the jacuzzi and it's awesome. We cooked our meals and the kitchen was fully equiped. All in all, if you are looking for a quiet and private place to stay in Mendocino, and you are considering also the locations of the places to go to, this is the perfect place to be. I recommend this to everyone as we did enjoy our stay in Kim's place. 5 out of 5 stars!

Wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

What a great find! My husband and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary and spent two nights at the cottage. I wish we could have stayed a week. We will be back, for sure.

A charming beach getaway! Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The house was full of light from the skylights in every room. Just beautiful through out the day with the changing light. The soaking tub had incredible ferns and a beautiful garden to look at. The property has manacured gardens and pathways. We really enjoyed the cozy beds and wood stove at night. House was packed with all you need for a charming beach getaway. The house exceeded our expections and was a joy to be there. The Montibeller's

Lovely Place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully decorated and so comfortable. Close drive to Mendocino, Light house, Russian Gulch and Caspar Beach. Very serene setting. Wifi was rather weak and cable selections minimal, but for quiet relaxing vacation this place is perfect. With two couples the upstairs bedroom acoustics were rather loud, but the downstairs bedroom was more private. Hot tub was great! Thanks to Kim for such a clean, charming place.
