About Kim Hodges
Hardy and Kim Hodges have been in real estate for over 15 years and continually seek hidden gems---this dream vacation home in Mendocino, appointed by well-known local artist Erin Dertner, is sure to satisfy. We have been operating vacation rentals in the NYC area for about ten years, and have experience ensuring our guests have a great, relaxing, time. Personal interests include cosmology, hiking and bicycling, and traveling the world with our two daughters. Our primary home is in Marin County (CA), across the Golden Gate bridge from San Francisco.
Why Kim Hodges chose Mendocino
Location, location, and views! Virtually 'next door' to Mendocino Village, but in a quiet and exclusive neighborhood widely considered the most desirable location for vacation renting on the north coast. The Retreat borders Russian Gulch State Park, an amazing park with trails, bluffs, beach, waterfalls, and biking---accessed by an easy stroll into park. And then the lovely ocean views...
What makes this House unique
Guest Comments: 'The bed was so comfortable that we went home and bought the same kind.' 'We leave here happy, peaceful and rested.' 'Loved every minute here, you thought of everything, the view, the remodel, the stove...we are looking forward to returning soon.' 'Your kitchen is equipped better than my house and I've lived there for 10 years!' 'We absolutely loved everything about your house. Looking from this gorgeous view was a real treat. You had all the amenities of any first rate spa, except no spa is surrounded by such gorgeous artwork.' 'We had a wonderful time in your home and truly appreciate your work in accomodating all TEN of us. It is amazingly spacious and has the most gorgeous view over lovely gardens, natural habitat and the sea. On the morning we left, two deer ambled into the driveway and helped themselves to some of your flora. Since we live in the city, it was a thrill to see them 'up close and personal,' as my daughter likes to say. I also appreciated all of the little touches you arranged and the ample use of your kitchenware!'

We had such a wonderful time in Mendocino and the location was perfect. I'm glad we arrived during the daytime or it might have been a little tricky to find the house. We loved sitting on the deck watching the waves in the distance.
The owner, Kim Hodges, was absolutely great to work with.
The house was beautiful and accommodated our family. It was exactly as the listing stated. We were close to town as well as some beautiful beaches. I would definitely love to rent this house again.
Spacious custom home
Lovely house with plenty room for my siblings who came to visit
Enjoyed big kitchen pool table hot tub
Great to have enough room for all of us
Some windows needing fixed to open and not many screens but was a lovely stay
This property was just as described and delightful from the first moment we arrived. Everything we needed was provided and more. We will definitely stay here again.
We enjoyed our stay in your home.
Great for a large group trip!
Excellent layout and wonderful amenities made for a fantastic stay. Front patio and yard are great for relaxing and games. Kim was out of town, but still very responsive and provided multiple resources for help with questions during our stay. Would definitely recommend if you're planning a trip to Mendocino!
