Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house can't get any better. With an amazing view and private beach access, it made a perfect vacation for myself and my family. The fireplace works perfect and the well stocked kitchen and new appliances were impressive. We would definitely go back to this house next year.

Could have been a five !

  • 4 of 5

This property has a fantastic location with views to die for. I would have given it five stars if not for a few small problems. First of all, we had really looked forward to fires in the beautiful round fireplace in the middle of the great room. However, there was no firewood. We called the owner and apparently the wood could not be delivered because of a storm earlier in the week. Major bummer. The heater wasn't working in the middle bedroom but that wasn't too much of a problem. The last thing that did bother us though was not being able to get the TV working even though we had a techie guy working on it. We could not watch the football playoff games that we were looking forward too. Another major bummer. So, the potential for greatness is there. Maybe you'll be luckier.

Gorgeous views

  • 4 of 5

I was not sure what to expect having rented homes before and finding the pictures were not always accurate portrail of the actual place. Boy was I delighted to find that everything was what it said and showed it would be! The house has amazing views as well as tons of information on how to use the house to tide pools and places to eat. All I can say is WOW what a wonderful view! The house itself is very accommodating, the beds were nice house was clean and had just about everything we needed. We will definitely be back.

Car: necessary

Warm, friendly setting, features: a home fully equipped for work or play, wi fi, electric piano, books and games. Short walk or car access to beach, surf and rock fishing, whale spotting tide pooling, shell collecting. During winter, the Mendocino Coast is treated to nature's great show of gray whales completing their 10,000-mile trip from Alaska to Baja, Calif. The Beach house, situated on a bluff, offers great view of their ocean route.

Coastal storms are another great show. guests need not be deterred by rain, as the cozy round fireplace, and panoramic views provide a safe and snug viewing hideaway. Spring/Summer features wildflowers, hiking trails and tidepooling. Catch and release trout pond and picnic area are a short walk.

General store is located 3 miles south in Manchester and a small store in Elk to the north. Elk offers a pub and restaurants. The village of Mendocino to the North and Gualala to the South provide art galleries, fine and casual dining.

Other Activities: Whale watching, Birding, Hiking, Tide pool exploring, Fishing, Hanging out on the deck
