Debby Merliss purchased this house in 1996
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.
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!
WOW! We just returned home from a wonderful 5 day stay at Bay Dream. From the moment we walked into the house, we were awestruck by its views. From its perch on a cliff overlooking the Pacific coast,the subtle changes to these views are a continual source of entertainment. The home itself is well-maintained and well-stocked with essentials and non-essentials that enhance your stay. We kept the house binoculars handy, relaxed in the hot tub, and enjoyed the music. There were games, books, and DVD's to use. The common areas are spacious & have sufficient furnishings to comfortably accommodate people enjoying different activities. The kitchen is large and well-equipped. It easily handles multiple cooks putting out the family meal. We appreciated a good supply of spices in the cupboard and needed no last minute runs to the market. The owner does a great job of providing you with advance information to make your stay at the house go smoothly. Our 5 days went by too quickly, so we envy the family that stayed for a month. We look forward to returning.
We had 30 glorious days at Bay Dream, hated to leave, and will cherish the memories. Our family came over the 7-10 days of the holidays and we're saturated with adventures at the home, the bluffs, the bay, the forests, glass beach, the restaurants, and on and on. The weather was rainy but didn't deter our eagerness. The home had everything from comfortable BRs to sound systems and TV and games for all ages. We adopted a gull that fascinated the kids. Our meals were easy to prepare and eating together in the DR and stools were so much fun, and the kitchen had everything! WE would recommend this home to anyone that might need a large place. Debra was available for any questions we had, and met all of our needs above and beyond.
Stayed here with a large group of friends for five nights. The house is 180 degrees surrounded by ocean, where you can see waves of water crashing against the bluff from the living room and kitchen, at all times during the day. There is a beach roughly 15-20 min walk from the house, which is also visible from the backyard. Essentially, you feel like you are along the coast of Scotland or Ireland out here, remote and beautiful. We did a lot of stuff on the bluff, including puffs on the bluff, getting rough on the bluff, getting buff on the bluff, cops came and brought cuffs to the bluff, finally we said enough with the bluff. I'm not bluffing you. Debby (the owner) was very responsive, a pleasure to work with, and coordinated with me on different notes, leading up to the trip dates. Everyone had an amazing time in this baller house.
This was our first time staying in a sea shore location.. This is an outstanding home. Very comfortable for our all men's group who spend the weekend hiking. We have rented homes all over Northern California and this is the nicest !!. This home is very nicely furnished and the kitchen is fully equipped. The beds are super comfortable. A short walk from the rear of the home brings you to beautiful bluffs which over look the sea shore which is many feet below. Gives you a full view of the coast line. Located in a gated small gathering of nice homes. Very quite and the sound of the waves is very relaxing. The living room is set up so you can sit in a semicircle which provides the perfect setting for good conversations. The large dining table was perfect for our meals together. The hot tube is great. Very relaxing after a days hiking. Highly recommended and will likely stay here again next year..
Our experience at Bay Dream was beyond perfect. From my first friendly and professional contact with the home owner, to her offering to mail me the favourite jeans I left behind, we could not have found a more suitable home for our large family gathering of
12. The setting, on one of the Mendocino Coast's iconic headlands, is magnificent, with gorgeous views of the ocean, nearby Caspar Beach, sunrises and sunsets from different windows. The house is fully
equipped and super comfortable with great mattresses in every room and extra bedding for kids crashing on-pull-out beds. There is even an outdoor shower 😃 and to my mother-in-law's great delight- a waffle iron!!! The large living dining kitchen area is perfect for hanging out, as is the outdoor area overlooking the deep bay, replete with picnic table, benches and Adirondack chairs, so condusive to family relaxing and connecting time. Fabulous spot.
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.
