Our house in Enchanted Meadows (that is the actual name of the area, you couldn’t make it up!) in Anchor Bay, California is the perfect place for a couple or a small group of family or friends to get away for a few days. It sits on top a hill along famous Highway 1 on the coast.
Because Enchanted Meadows is located in the so called banana belt, the weather is warm and sunny even if much of the coast is covered in fog. The main house has a living room and dining room with hardwood floors, a fully equipped kitchen, one bedroom, a large newly remodeled bathroom with floor heating and a huge deck around the house. Two additional buildings serve as two more bedrooms, one with a bathroom.
The house sits in a Redwood forest with a partial blue water ocean view. You can hear the waves and sea lions from the house. The setting is very private, calm and romantic. The deck and garden are perfect for hottubbing, relaxing, sunbathing, enjoying meals or watching the local wildlife. You will most likely meet the local bevy of quail, watch the hummingbirds dart around the garden, hear the ravens in the trees, see the chipmunks and squirrels and maybe get a glimpse of a deer.
One of the most wonderful features of the house is the light. In the morning the whole house is flooded with warm morning light. Watching the full moon from the hot tub on the deck or through the windows inside the house travel across the night sky is spectacular. And without the moon, the sky is exploding with stars and planets, an amazing experience from the comfort of the hot tub. For city dwellers the lack of light pollution is awe-inspiring.
In the winter, the wood burning stove in the living room will keep you warm and cozy.
Though you feel like you are away from it all, you are very close to civilization. Anchor Bay is just 5 minutes down the hill and offers a supermarket and two restaurants. Gualala is about 10 minutes to the South and offers a wide variety of restaurants, two supermarkets, a post office, gas stations, gift shops and live music. Gualala is about 10 miles north of Sea Ranch, Sonoma County.
The spectacular Mendocino coast and its beautiful beaches are a great place to explore, hike, fish, dive and surf.
Our house is a short drive to the Point Arena Cove and the Point Arena Lighthouse which offers some of the best whale watching on the entire West coast.

Our house in Enchanted Meadows is our personal vacation home, but we enjoy making it available for you to rent. John and I spend as much time up there as we can because we love the area. The Mendocino Coast is an easy place to fall in love with; you should try it!
Owner purchased this House in 2007
Why Owner chose Gualala
If you have to ask, you need to come visit the area! It is paradise. This stretch is one of the most amazing parts of the California coast. It is rugged and offers any outdoor loving person unlimited possibilities.
What makes this House unique
Our property is at the end of the road, which means that you are looking out on the ocean and trees. The hill is South facing and offers a unique sunny, windless and warm climate, the locals call it the Banana Belt.

Looooved the place!!! The house is beautiful and the location is just gorgeous! Being in the woods was super calming but also fun as we saw a few awesome big birds there and a couple baby deers on our way to the place. It's also very romantic there. We had the best time with my boyfriend sitting outside at night, watching millions of stars in the sky and listening to the sound of the ocean. Location is especially great because it's super private, which was very important for us as we were trying to escape from the city noise. However, there were still people in the neighborhood so it didn't feel scary :)) The house is super cozy and had everything we needed, so we really felt like home! Thanks a lot for this perfect weekend, we're really hoping to come again!
Dreamy, relaxing retreat
I spent a March weekend with my sisters and partner at Katrina’s place and it was utterly dreamy. Highlights included several whale migration sitings, using the wood stove to cozy up and relaxing in the hot tub after a hike with drinks in hand and view of light rain from a blue sky sparkling through the red woods. There are countless stunning views and attractions in the surrounding area. We did not even drive up to Mendocino as planned because there was more than enough beauty right outside the door. Katrina was very accommodating and responsive. Would highly recommend this place.
clean, beautiful, perfect
This is the second time we have rented this lovely property from Katrina and John, and as always, we were beyond pleased with the entire experience. The house is immaculate. Clean, comfortable, and nestled in a gorgeous area. The hot tub was clean and the perfect temperature. The kitchen was well stocked, and there are plenty of places to lounge indoors or out. Although the surrounding area has some amazing hikes, it is tough to leave the deck! The hosts are easy to reach and responsive when we had questions about the wifi. Thank you for an amazing stay and we will be back again!
Clean, peaceful and tranquil. Beautiful cozy cabin in the forest with everything you need for a relaxing weekend. We stayed thru a storm and it was an amazing experience. The host provided great dry wood for the fire place and the kitchen was fully stocked with cookware and essentials. Wonderful experience, would highly recommend this getaway again.
Beautiful home situated in tall redwoods.
What a wonderful home Katrina and her partner has. My friends and I spent the NYE here in this hidden away home slightly up the hills. We fully enjoyed the BBQ, hot tub, and the two little cabins by each side. I can't wait to come back! I'd recommend it for anyone who's looking for something rustic and homey!
Tranquil and lovely....
We enjoyed our stay tremendously. The property is wonderful with all the amenities and great location. Katrina is very accommodating and a good resource for things to do in the area. we would stay again!
