What makes this house unique

The Ohana House is in a very nice location adjacent to a State Park on two sides- you can often hear the sound of the Van Damme creek below. Beautiful coastal hiking is accessible within walking distance to the house. A great rental at an affordable price.

Memorial weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

Terrific spot in Mendocino. Old, updated "real" Mendocino house. Great kitchen, grill w/plenty of propane, fireplace that does not smoke and lots of firewood. Hot tub at good temp - clean and well situated. The beds and linens are excellent. Wi-fi and TV (did not use - too busy exploring) and good literature describing what's going on in Mendocino. Hank was easy to deal with - simple payment process and prompt return of security deposit.

Gem of Mendocino

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the Ohana house for an unforgettable Thanksgiving gathering. With a fire crackling in the living room fireplace the house felt cozy and warm. The kitchen was fully stocked with all we needed to prepare our meals and enjoy the "home away from home" feeling. We loved the location and the ability to walk along the bluffs at Gordon Lane and watch the waves crash along the cliffs. The hot tub in the redwoods was a big plus for us! Having our own private house that was so comfortable and clean was perfect for our family.

Perfect for Couples or Family and close to Trails!

  • 5 of 5

Relaxing in the hot tub was fantastic. We had 2 couples and 3 kids and it was plenty roomy. The coastal trail at the end of the lane is beautiful and I was able to run there from the rental. Very peaceful. Well equipped kitchen. The short drive to Mendocino is very scenic and it was easy to go back and forth. Definitely would rent there again!

Mendocino Village done right

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in Mendo View West many times now because it's like having your own luxurious apartment in town for the weekend. The deck looks out over the ocean, the fireplace keeps you warm and cozy, and the huge spa bath even has an ocean view. The full kitchen and the welcoming basket with a bottle of Russian River Pinot, delicious cheese, fruit and crackers provides the perfect start to a lovely getaway. The hardest part is leaving the suite to walk down to the redwood sauna baths and private massage. The quality and dedication to detail has never varied over the many years we've been coming.

Excellent vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Mendo View West suite, a full-service apartment with ocean view from all rooms, even the jacuzzi tub in the bathroom, which includes a double shower and sink. Walking distance from many wonderful restaurants and paths along the bluff. The apartment is quiet and private. The hospitality was warm and nurturing and I would return to Sweetwater in a New York minute. Thank you one and all.

Perfect location for a romantic getaway :-)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Mendo View West and loved it from the moment we arrived! The suite is really more like an apartment and it's definitely done up to a luxurious level. Part of Mendocino's charm is that the fog can roll in after a beautiful sunny day and when that happens having a cosy spot to relax is a boon. There's a great fireplace to toast in front of while chillin with a glass of wine. The bathroom is beautifully appointed with a huge spa bath as well as a double shower. There's a fully fitted kitchen as well. All of this is within easy walking distance of "downtown" Mendocino and the headlands - beauty, great coffee, great food & restaurants. All in all - a perfect location for a romantic getaway!
