About Cindy Morey Owner

I am an avid traveler who loves the sea. I am a diver, sailor, snorkeler, kayaker, hiker, horse back rider and love to meet new people and explore new places.

Cindy Morey Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why Cindy Morey Owner chose North Coast California

I fell in love with this property the moment I stepped onto the upper and lower decks! The commanding views, the open areas with lots of wildlife, the beach, the coast line and the towns that I can get to for a days outing. I just love sitting on my deck, listening to the birds and the waves. I enjoy sharing it with others who love the ocean and wilderness as much as I do.

What makes this house unique

All of the above. The location, the area, the views, the wildlife, and most of all the house. I love the open floor plan, the high ceilings, the kitchen and everything about it.

Light-Filled Comfort

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful vacation home (better than described!)

New, with an open floorplan that includes lots of windows allowing light to fill the common areas, even in the foggy and cloudy weather. All the comforts of home including fluffy duvets, tub and showers, coffee grinder, coffee maker, and miles of counterspace.

Not right on the beach, but you would not want to be; it is up on a high point and has an unparalleled view of the Point Arena lighthouse out on the tip of the crescent of Irish Beach stretching out before you. Beach access is within walking distance, down an adjacent road.

The Mendocino Coast is spectacularly rocky with small towns dotting the winding road, both north and south. Perfect home base to just relax and unwind or to go day tripping inland to the Anderson Valley, and take in some redwoods as well. The area is particularly friendly to bicyclists, although bike lanes seem virtually non-existent. Kayaking available on the various rivers in the area. Recommend the Albion River Inn for dinner, ($$) about 2 miles south of the charming town of Mendocino.

It is evident that the owners take great pride in their lovely home. We appreciate and respect the opportunity to enjoy it. I especially enjoyed the baby grand piano!

Awesome Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Loved going away here for the weekend, everything was very clean and the house was decorated very nicely to give it a beach house feel. All we had to take was food-dishes, pots/pans, grill, utensils were all there! Another plus is that the house is pet friendly which always makes it easier than leaving your dogs with someone. Cindy was very nice in sending us the information quickly and getting us booked as well as questions we had were answered. We also love that this house has a key for Irish Beach since it's a private beach-definitely hung out there for a great part of the day. We would definitely recommend this beach house to our friends and are looking forward to coming back up in the next few months!

Relaxing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I felt right at home the moment we walked in the door. The decor and layout of the house was so open and welcoming. We enjoyed the daily visits of the local deer and one morning had three of them grazing just off of the patio. We highly recommend this house to anyone that is looking to kick back and relax.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. It's always so nice to know that our guests enjoy the house as much as we do and for all the same reasons! Relaxing and just being with the nature that surrounds the house and the area while also seeing and hearing the ocean is like being on a long retreat! I hope you will come back for another visit in the future. This is the main reason I bought this house, to be able to share it with others who appreciate the beauty of the layout and the views.

Nice house but outdoor photos are misleading.

  • 3 of 5

The house is great - very well stocked and comfortable, it even has a piano! For that, the house gets four stars. However, the outdoor photos are misleading, which was disappointing, and that's the reason for the three star rating.

It appears that the house is a beachfront property but this is not the case. There are roads running along two sides of the house between the house and the ocean. And although there are a lot of window that offer great views, there are no unobstructed views of the ocean - every view includes houses or rooftops and the photo of the view from the rooftop deck is zoomed in. We realize that owners want/need to make their houses look desirable but would have appreciated full disclosure and more accurate photos (the indoor photos were accurate). When I contacted the owner to see about getting a refund for our remaining days and moving to a beach front property. She was kind and offered to refund one night of our stay but not the remaining nights. In the end, we decided to stay instead of losing money on our weekend.

If you're not concerned about having an oceanfront property, this house does have good views and everything you'll need to be comfortable during your stay.

Owner's Response: It is always good to hear from our guest. The website states that the house has a Panoramic view of the ocean with spectacular sunsets, which is definitely the case. It is located on the ocean side of Highway 1 and does have other homes in view. However, after renting for several years to people all over the world, this is the first time anyone has complained about the houses, given that the view is so expansive, from all directions. This custom built home sits on a knoll that is 300 feet above sea level. There are homes directly on the bluff facing due west out to the ocean. Our view looks directly over these to the open sea. The Irish Beach community has done a great job at keeping the building heights and view corridors open to every house that is located there. We have watched many whales go by without the houses impacting our view. The scenic outlook to the south also sees a few homes, but again, they do not impact our fantastic view of the beach, waves, light house, and the cliffs. There are only about 15 homes that are located in that section of Irish Beach, with only a few of those in my view corridor. The local streets that are near the house are not intrusive at all. Given the amount and speed of the local traffic, you can barely hear the cars go by and in most cases you cannot even see them due to our landscaping and being high up on an elevation . My refund policy is very clear in the rental agreement that every quest signs before their stay. Since these guests had already spent one night, and I had talked to them on the phone several times, I thought it was fair to refund one night, but not 2 or 3 nights. I will be happy to add some new pictures of the view with and without the homes, and even point out where the roads are since it was never my intent to deceive anyone. The owner

Relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

We (two adults and a two-and-a-half-year-old) greatly enjoyed our week at this property. It's as stunning as it looks in the photos and the location is ideal for peace and quiet, while still having the wherewithal to get all the supplies you might need within a few miles by going to Manchester, Point Arena or Elk. Mendocino and Gualala within fairly easy reach, too, although we found that we spent most of our time at the house and on the beautiful beach below it.

We had a slight issue with a broken key on arrival, but Cindy was very helpful in sorting out a locksmith and getting us into the house as quickly as possible - and this at 5pm on a Friday evening! There's lots of information about the local area in the house, with a couple of folders full of website print-outs about the area.

The kitchen is beautiful and very well-stocked, the house is decorated in a lovely manner and the beds are comfortable. Overall, a wonderful place to stay.
