Such an enchanting place!

  • 5 of 5

This charming 2 bedroom house has the most magnificent views. We were blessed with sunshine 4 days out of 5, and I could sit on the lounge chair out on the deck, mesmerized by the ocean and the birdsong. Our hosts had everything we needed to make beautiful meals when we stayed in, and it was a pleasant drive to neighboring towns for restaurants. I also enjoyed many evenings in the hot tub. A pleasure to stay in your home. Thank you!

What a wonderful vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Paradise Found and it didn't disappoint us.

Once again we were blessed with wonderful weather and beach combed to our delight.

Morning were spent walking and exploring the beach and afternoons working on photo albums we bought with us to redo.

The large dinning room table was perfect for our project.

The house is large, bright and truly a home away from home.

Thank you Cynthia for making your home so welcoming.

Beautiful beach house in a serene setting

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as pictured on the Home Away site an eclectic mix of pottery barn and rustic. The furnishings were comfy and beautiful to look at. Every detail was well thought out and directions on how to find/use things were in the book provided. The kitchen wad great and the cookware high end. We cooked several dinners here and had everything we needed. Sitting in the hot tub looking at the ocean was our treat at the end of every day. Cindy even allowed us to purchase a fishing rod so my husband could fish😊򒠠So now there are 2 fishing rods and tackle that are there for all to share.

This place is a gem, and I would definitely book again! It should be noted that the bathroom in the master bedroom doesn't have a door & the second bedroom is actually the entrance/foyer area. Neither of these details presented any issues for us, but I can imagine that might be relevant information if your party consists of more than 2 people.

Lovely home, very quiet and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Paradise Found, and it is just as charming and comfortable as the first time. Centrally located near all of Mendocino county sites, you can see the area or just sleep in and relax all day. This home is such a bargain for what you get. Highly recommend.
