Just ten minutes south of the historic village of Mendocino and only 3 minutes south of the movie-famed Heritage House Inn, TIDEPOOL is a unique cliff-top oceanfront retreat – a spacious 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home perched 100 feet above scenic Whitesboro Cove. Its angular box design, beamed ceilings, and redwood interior and exterior are reminiscent of the Sea Ranch architectural style. A veritable sixty foot wraparound floor-to-ceiling wall of glass, spanning the living and sun rooms, immerses you in the panoramic sweep of the rugged Albion Headlands whitewater coastline, Whitesboro Cove, and the Pacific Ocean. Sit inside or outside on the wind-sheltered deck or in the hot tub at eye level with soaring osprey, pelicans, hawks, and gulls and enjoy the nonstop procession of ocean swells crashing into the rocks below. The pelicans and osprey hover all day long above the cove, crashdiving into the water for the local sushi. During their seasonal migrations, you'll experience the parade of spouts, fins and flukes of Pacific gray whales.
The Master bedroom loft (king bed & half bath) and its oversized North facing window offer a picture perfect view of the crashing waves without even having to lift your head from the pillow and a private cozy deck to enjoy the sun or your own private view of the stars. The 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms on the first floor (king bed & queen bed) are located down the hall from the galley kitchen. The downstairs Master bedroom suite features its own recently remodeled bathroom with an oversized tiled shower and bench combo with bar-holds for safety. A formal dining room comfortably seats six to eight and the Franklin fireplace compliments any meal. While dining, enjoy the pre-recorded keyboard selections on the Yamaha Electric Clavinova or the musicians amongst you can make your own music.
Stretch out in the paired Scandinavian leather recliners in the privacy of the all-cedar-and-glass Lindal sunroom and listen to your favorite music while meditating upon the ever-changing panoramic ocean, coastal, and bay vistas. No matter the weather outside, it’s always comfy inside because of the house’s central heating. With a cozy fire burning in the wood stove, enjoy the spectacular ocean sunsets and the grazing and winged wildlife while ensconced upon the living room’s comfy leather sofas. Both the living room and upstairs master bedroom feature a Bose audio and 55-inch HDTV entertainment center fed by a Direct TV Network HD/DVR receiver with complimentary HBO, Starz, Showtime, and Cinemax movie channels. iPod docking cable to stereo.
Like an oceanfront oasis, your privacy is assured – located at the end of a cul-de-sac; TIDEPOOL is part of a private, GATED road just two minutes south of the Ledford House Restaurant and Albion River Restaurant, two great dining experiences on the coast. Nearby, the quaint town of Albion offers everything you need for your much-needed retreat, and the Albion Flats Cafe, just 3 minutes North, cooks up the best budget-priced breakfasts on the North Coast while offering a surrealistic view from below the last remaining wooden trestle bridge on CA Highway One. Although there is NO BEACH ACCESS from our cliff top property, you can enjoy stopping off at Van Damme Beach in Little River or Big River Beach in Mendocino during your ten minute drive into Mendocino.
Hi-Speed broadband Internet connection and WiFi is available anywhere in the house so bring your tablets, laptops, and Roku devices to stream your favorite video entertainment.

A couple of whales were right out front, just over the bench down the hill. Lots of spouts and their backs and flukes plainly visible. What a surprise to see them hanging out so close. This was our 3rd time here in this home and the first for whale viewing.
We have been renting homes from Point Arena to above Fort Bragg for 30 years, and none of them had views to beat this one. The large windows and spectacular scenery beyond are the best!
My husband and i never have regular vacations, we have mini vacations of 2-3 days. We found this place, and we will never rent another house if this one is not available! The house is gorgeous, especially the sun room, the location is unbelievable, and the hot tub, heaven!!! the loft bedroom is luxurious, and has a little deck off of it.
just a short drive to Mendocino and Fort Bragg. The owner Howard is a doll and very responsive.
If you can swing it rent this place!!!
Well kept cozy home right on a bluff with spectacular views! Great location, short drive to Mendocino & Fort Bragg with many hiking/exploring opportunities along the way. Sitting out in the hot tub at night, jets off listening to the waves crashing...aahhh..very relaxing. This home sits in a small private gated community with very few houses. So quiet and peaceful. Howard was very accommodating making sure everything was perfect for our stay. Can't wait to peel another weekend away from our busy schedule and come back to this amazing property!
Our family travelled from NYC, San Jose, and Magalia, CA to meet at The Tidepool house for a week of rest and relaxation. The house is situated on a bluff with an amazing view of the cove, the ocean, and awesome sunsets. We were all pleased to have the first 3 days fog filled as we had all come from steamy-hot locations, but when the sun broke out and stayed out for the rest of our time we were thrilled. Gorgeous weather propelled us to do lots of walking, exploring, and swimming.
The sun room and living room give you every opportunity to just gaze out to sea, or check out the abundant wildlife. We saw mule deer and their kids, sea lions, many different raptors, quail, and the highlight - a red fox and her two pups.
Close enough to go out to dinner or explore neighboring towns, and private enough to feel like you are the only ones around. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and recommend this place highly.
The scenery is as gorgeous as it looks in the photos! And there are plenty of decks and windows so you can appreciate it. The sun room is especially nice. The beds are very comfortable and the house was clean. The house is generally well-equipped and thoughtfully supplied. The kitchen is small and could be better equipped, but I have found this to be true of most rental homes. The house is close to all activities, but feels "away from it all." We had a party of three couples and found it an ideal house for a group that size. The owner was VERY responsive and I appreciated his prompt responses to my communications. We had absolutely no issues while we were staying there, but I felt confident if there had been an issue, he would have taken care of it right away.
