Imagine yourself...back from a busy day of exploring the Mendocino Coast...soaking in a warm, sudsy Jacuzzi bathtub...sipping a glass of local wine...and, gazing out through your private view window, across a breath-taking panorama of ocean rocks, directly at the world renown Point Cabrillo Lighthouse.
This is the stuff that Sea Dreams is made of. A perfect coastal getaway. A contemporary multi-level vacation home; warm, bright, featuring huge view windows in virtually every room, two glass front fireplaces, and a special entertainment room for fun, games, with a full size pool table and a wide screen cable TV.
Inside, an open floor plan, comfortable furniture, and a gourmet kitchen give Sea Dreams an easy going ambiance. Outside, a west facing hot tub deck offers endless sunsets and starry nights for serious soakers.
Located just off scenic Coast Highway One, Sea Dreams is just minutes by car to historic Mendocino Village, bustling Fort Bragg, and everything that the Coast has to offer to visitors, newcomers and veterans, alike. Imagine that.

Hi- Welcome to our little slice of heaven. We are Rick and Tracy. We've been married almost eight years and very happy and blessed. Rick is retired from Alameda County Social Services and Tracy is a busy consultant working with non-profits doing organizational development. We have four great kids between us, a wonderful son-in-law and two adorable grandkids. We love reading the reviews in our guest log- all of which say how they feel the love and joy in our home. We hope you will too!
Tracy and Rick purchased this house in 2005
We love Mendocino- it is just so beautiful. And then we found this house, not much when we first bought it, but the location is not to be believed. On its own promontory, the house sits surrounded on three sides by water. Views, views, views.. We remodeled the house looking forward to the day that we'll be able to retire and move up here, so everything is top notch- complete with gourmet kitchen, master bath spa and wifi. We love being here!
Mendocino is incredible, what with its views, galleries, fabulous restaurants, art classes, hiking, horseback riding, beaches, antiques- on and on.. There truly is something for everyone here.. and everyone is so friendly!
I would actually give 4 1/2 stars. Together with another couple, we visited this home for 6 days in March. Our stay included warm sunny days and a scary hurricane-like storm. This home is an amazing place to be, in either situation. The views are stunning. The waves pounded nonstop. Lighthouse beacon swirled through our bedroom at night. It was a very special place to be. Downside: we did have to battle ants in the kitchen and went out to buy some ant spray, as there was none in the house. The other kitchen issue was the complete disarray of items in the drawers and some of the cupboards, which resulted in lots of hunting around for needed utensils or containers. I would think the maids or cleaning crew could make some sense of the kitchen chaos. We have stayed in other places where everything had a labeled place, and were much more organized in the kitchen. We enjoyed the pool table during the storm, and thankfully the power didn't go out. Fireplace kept us warm and cozy. I was able to fly my kite on the bluff on the sunny days, a nice breeze was just right. Our friends said the downstairs bed was good for them. We found the upstairs bed to be quite hard; it could have used a foam topper! This home is in a lovely neighborhood and close to both Mendocino Village and Fort Bragg. Owner was very easy to work with and we extended our stay for an extra day without any trouble.
What a fantastic property in a stunning location! The home was wonderful. Airy open plan kitchen, dining and lounge with large windows for stunning views of the coast. The kitchen was well stocked so you could easily cook in. Large bedrooms with quality bedding. Modern and clean bathrooms. Fun den with pool table, large TV and plenty of board games and books. Lovely deck and hot-tub so you can enjoy watching the whales and yes, we saw many. The nearby lighthouse, beaches and state parks were all a short drive away.
Imagine a secluded home on the Mendocino Coast that's not only stocked with every amenity you could want - and then add stunning white-water ocean views available from every room and you have Sea Dreams.
From the stocked kitchen, to the comfy and capacious living room, complete with fireplace, stereo and did I mention the views? Or if you want to "get away", the game room with the 50-inch plasma TV, pool table, large selection of games, books, etc. - you will never need to leave the grounds, except to run out to the market to fill your pantry so you can prepare your meals in the modern kitchen.
Sea Dreams is nestled in a charming neighborhood right off the 1, walking distance to Russian Gulch State Park which offers great hiking trails, excellent access to the shoreline and plenty of wonderful natural beauty.
Of course you can take the short trip to Mendocino and stroll around and enjoy the shops, restaurants and ambiance offered there.
BIG PLUS - They are dog friendly and our dog enjoyed the stay as much as we did!
All of this is only enhanced by your gracious hosts - while there was not a lot of need for to communicate with Tracy and Rick the entire experience of renting this wonderful home was pleasant and we are looking forward to returning - this place has now become our FAVORITE vacation rental on the north coast and we recommend it without hesitation.
We are sharing a review posted on another travel site last year and realize that we should have posted this on VRBO where the listing is!
We have only one complaint - Sea Dreams is so popular we couldn't find an opening this year - but we will be back!
Tracy and Rick - THANK YOU for sharing your home!
I went with four girlfriends to Sea Dreams to celebrate my 50th - I couldn't have found a better place. The house is fabulous - great kitchen for cooking, living room for lounging, and the home is spacious, clean, well-equipped and comfortable. The view from this property is incomparable: Point Cabrillo lighthouse on one side and the ocean crashing from all other views. Hot tub location is perfect for ocean views and star gazing! House location is great for going into Mendocino or Fort Bragg, but also being able to walk to Russian Gulch State Park. Great dinner at Albion River Inn. Tracy was exceedingly helpful and great to work with. We hope to make a tradition of a June visit!
Our family spent 3-nights at Sea Dreams and enjoyed every minute. Beautiful, clean, nicely decorated home with LARGE rooms and a spectacular ocean front location. As soon as you walk into the open living area, you're surrounded by huge windows all opening up to the ocean on two sides. Feels like you're on your own peninsula. The neighborhood is very nice and the walk to Russian Gulch Park gave more ocean views to enjoy. Tracy was friendly & kind, as is the MCR management service. Mendocino is magical and this lovely home was a perfect way to experience it.
My family spent 3 wonderful days at SeaDreams. Everything was perfect except the weather. The house was beautiful, clean, very well equipped and very comfortable with the most amazing views. Many small details by the owners made it feel like you were at home. We would highly recommend this property and the lovely owners.
