Mendocino House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 11-12)

YOUR MEMORABLE VACATION STARTS IN A MEMORABLE VACATION HOME!

WEEKENDS and HOLIDAYS HAVE a 3 NIGHT MINIMUM.

OFF SEASON WEEKENDS HAVE A 2 NIGHT MINIMUM.

WEEKDAYS HAVE A 2 NIGHT MINIMUM

From the front door or the back doors of BAY DREAM you can WALK TRAILS along the HEADLANDS and down to the tide pools, or take a short stroll down to CASPAR BEACH (a 1/4 mile WALK or a 2 minute DRIVE to the SAND ), great for surfing and kayaking. You can rent kayaks and paddle boards at Caspar Beach. You can watch the WHALES migrating, and the SEA LIONS sun themselves from this exclusive peninsula, GATED on a private road where only a handful of homes have been allowed. BAY DREAM is one of them!

This contemporary home is LIGHT, BRIGHT, OPEN, and airy with lots of HUGE windows and high vaulted ceilings. With its 5 BEDROOMS (rare for an OCEANFRONT vacation rental) and 2.5+ baths, 6 PERSON upper deck HOT TUB, LARGE, FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN area with abundant seating and all the amenities, Bay DREAM is the ultimate home for larger families or special friends to experience a Mendocino DREAM Vacation!

One of the unique features of this home is its location CLOSE TO THE BLUFF. The ebb and flow of the tides pass right in front of BAY DREAM giving the house its own natural rhythm, a rhythm that seems to REPLENISH THE SOUL AND SPIRIT of those within. Many guests have commented on this phenomenon over the years along with their remarks of 'We did not want to leave'. Stay a few days at Bay Dream and see for yourself!

This open concept, MULTI-LEVEL home with its HUGE windows, decks and large HOT TUB provide endlessly-changing views of breaking waves, A BLOW-HOLE, fishing boats, kayaks, windsurfers, surfers, sunsets, and abundant wildlife!

From the LARGE OPEN KITCHEN area you can VIEW the OCEAN with fishing boats, the BAY with kayaks and abalone-divers, and the BEACH with its surfers and paddle boarders; quite an entertaining panorama. There are BOOGIE BOARDS at the house or rent kayaks, surfboards, etc. at Caspar Beach. A wetsuit is recommended.

About The Owner

We hope you can share in the experience of a (Bay)Dream Vacation and that you leave feeling as fortunate as we do for great family, great friends, and awe-inspiring nature.

The Owner purchased this house in 1996

Why The Owner chose North Coast California

We vacationed in Mendocino for several years before we came upon this incredibly rare oceanfront lot for sale. We realized that to build a vacation home in this spot would be a once in a lifetime opportunity. We designed the home to be a vacation rental with the dream to use it on occasion for our family and to share with special friends.

What makes this house unique

LOCATION, Very Unique Viewscape up close and personal, as BAY DREAM sits close to bluff. The house has a small fence but still need to keep watch over children. With so much beautiful and fascinating drama of the sea and wildlife activity, you do not feel the need to go anywhere! You can stay at the house all day and feel like you have totally experienced the Mendocino Coast. Just a short walk or drive to Caspar Beach, a great beach to swim, surf, kayak, skimboard, and paddleboard!

A wonderful home with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

I had to remind myself to come back and post this review even though it's almost a year later.

Debra was wonderful to work with and responded with answers so promptly. The home and view are breathtaking and the furnishings were great. Debra keeps the house stocked with essential spices so our stay was a breeze because we just had to bring the main ingredients and lots of wine to enjoy our weekend.

We came there with 5 couples, all friends from law school, and just wanted a place where we could relax with each other and enjoy quality time. Bay Dream did not disappoint. We came in late the first evening, because of work of course, and were blown away the next morning with the views of the ocean and cove on both sides of the home.

The house was located near Ft. Bragg and Mendocino and a drive/short hike away from the lighthouse. Perfect location. Thank you Debra for making our stay so awesome.

This Place Has It All!

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect for views, ocean breezes, and area attractions. Mid-way between Mendocino and Fort Bragg, there is plenty to see and do. The house is fully equipped and has everything you need. Ours was a family event and included kids of all ages. Everyone found something to do whether it be playing games or taking hikes. This place was great!

A fantastic find!!

  • 5 of 5

This is my first review although we have rented several VRBO properties; this rental beats them all for a large get together. We were a family of eleven from 9 months to 90! The house was great in every way! Pictures don't do the house justice. Open floor plan, with absolutely beautiful views in every direction; bright and airy. Well away from neighboring houses. Clean and well equipped. Large floor to ceiling windows in the living room area. Plenty of room to spread out. Great bedroom space. Fantastic amazingly stocked kitchen with all equipment needed for our 'foodie' family. Well stocked with linens/towels and a large washer/dryer. Huge screen tv with supplied 3D glasses/movies/games for night time entertainment. Very friendly owners who made rental easy. Thanks.

Fabulous Rental

  • 5 of 5

I've rented from VRBO for over 10 years. This was one of the best experiences our family has had. I agree that the views are amazing and the house has everything.

Debra, the owner is the most organized owner I have ever worked with.

One of the things that impressed me most was the design of the house.

We have a large extended family and did need all 5 bedrooms. However, even with so many people, you felt like you could get away and easily take a nap.

The kitchen and family room handled our large group and made it fun for meals.

I would give this home and owner the highest of recommendations.

SIGNIFICANTLY SURPASSED EXPECTATIONS.

  • 5 of 5

Every aspect of Bay Dreams surpassed our expectations. I hardly know where to start. This was the most well equipped vacation rental that we’ve ever stayed in and we’ve stayed in quite a few from the mountains to the seashore to the beautiful North Coast of California. Glass and views in every direction. Sitting at the dining table. . . look left to the Ocean, ahead to the Beautiful bay and right to flowers. In our 11 days there, we never ate out one time. . . who would want to leave all that Bay Dreams offers. Wonderful beds/mattresses, linens, towels, games, kitchen accessories and such. Location was great with Mendocino about 5 minutes South and Fort Brag, 5 minutes to the South. The cliffs above the bay were 6 seconds away walking and the cliffs above the Pacific, 60 seconds.

The owner was a delight to work with and was most attentive to our questions and any special concerns we had before arriving. After arriving, there was not a single thing lacking or additional explanations needed. It was the most user friendly home we’ve stayed in. The owner provided a questionnaire that asked if there was anything lacking and we only found one thing. . . . more time to enjoy our stay there. We will be back!!

  • 5 of 5

The home and location are beautiful. The kitchen is exceptionally well stocked with all the cookware, dishes, utensils, etc. that you could need. My friends and I loved cooking in and relaxing in the dining room/living room area with the late afternoon light and sunset. You can hear the sea lions who stayed on one of the rock outcroppings just below the cliff barking/calling if the doors/windows were open.

There is great hiking at the various California State parks and in Jackson State Forest within a 30 minute drive, and several great restaurants in the area. The Mendocino Botanical gardens were beautiful - especially since the rhododendrons were blooming when we visited.

If I had the same size group (we were 8 women) next trip to this area I would rent the house again.
