Overview

About the property

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

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.

About The Owner

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!

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose North Coast California

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.

Best bang for your buck!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful getaway home is decently priced and beautifully located. If you're looking to escape the busy city life, then enchanted meadows is perfect. It's situated in the middle of forest floor while still being able to see the ocean from the deck. The kitchen is very well equipped and there are markets close by. There is no Wi-Fi and reception is iffy so be prepared with board games and dvds! Katrina is so kind and ready to answer any concerns. Highly recommend staying here!

Enchanting

  • 5 of 5

My family was looking for a quiet retreat where we could come together, but also have space apart to reflect on my father's recent passing. Enchanted Meadows was the perfect setting, and very comfortably equipped. It was also an easy drive to beautiful beaches. Just a lovely place.

Beautiful house in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this place, with views of the ocean to the west and otherwise surrounded by trees. The house was clean and had everything we needed including very detailed and helpful instructions from the hosts. The hot tub on the deck was a plus. There's not much light pollution here so the stars are very clearly visible on a clear night. Grocery stores and restaurants are conveniently located.

A cozy retreat in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

The property sits high up in the trees and is quite private. We were 2 couples, so we also used the small cabin as well as the main house. The main house was great for relaxing, especially with the hot tub, and enjoying meals together and the small cabin perfect for sleeping. Despite the rain, we had a great stay in the area, heading down to the beach for great hikes. Well stocked and had everything we needed. Very peaceful! Katrina was very responsive and easy to deal with before and during our stay. Would highly recommend this place.

Parfeit

  • 5 of 5

A perfect getaway from the city to the country. Very relaxing place to stay with an added bonus for supreme relaxation in the Hot Tub. The main house was perfect for me and my girlfriend for 2 nights where we just mostly relaxed, cooked and read. There is also a nice hiking trail from the yard leading down to a ravine and creek. We only used the main house as it was just the 2 of us, but the 2 other bedrooms detached from the main house would make it perfect for a family or a group of friends. The house was very clean, comforting and relaxing and we had everything we needed while we were there. Woke up every morning to watch the beautiful sunrise from the main bedroom with views of the ocean! Would definitely be coming back here!
