Outstanding property

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 nights in this cottage and are sorry to leave. Everything was outstanding. It is quiet, charming and spotlessly clean. Mary is an excellent host and thought of absolutely everything her guests could possibly need.

We have stayed in numerous other vacation rental cottages. This one is among the very best. We wish we could give more than five stars!

La Petite Maison

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was wonderful. We were able to spread out in our building and grounds to enjoy our stay. The property has a good location, literally 5 minutes from the ocean and the town of Mendocino and near the state parks along Highway one. The host, Mary Zama, is great! She is quite charming and offered a lot of information to enjoy the area.

La Petite Maison tops in hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

This private oasis was absolutely perfect for our week-long stay. Lots of love and attention was put into creating a restful, romantic experience. The decor, gardens, fireplace, bed, balcony and other amenities made it difficult to leave. Also, a good location for getting to other places e.g. the ocean, parks, gardens, etc. The host, Mary, was lovely and very responsive, but never intrusive. She was delightful and we look forward to a future stay.

My husband and I stayed at La Petite Maison for 5 nights prior to the destination wedding of our nephew in Mendocino. I wish I had booked this charming spot for the entire stay. Nestled in the redwoods, Mary and Peter have established this sweet cottage with every comfort in mind. The surrounding gardens are a joy as is Mary with a patio, table and chairs for relaxation. Meticulous attention to detail provides the guests with every necessity met. The kitchen is wonderfully stocked plus upon arrival the fridge contains wine, English muffins, butter, eggs, jam, and fruit along with a small container of milk.

There are comfortable chairs and a small sofa downstairs; the bedroom upstairs is

just so pleasant with an ample supply of towels, soaps, and skylights which provide a feeling of space and light. La Petite Maison is a welcoming respite for the tired traveler and

Mary is on the property to greet you and answer all of your questions. Bravo!!!!!!!!!

Lovely Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice two day visit to La Petite Maison. The setting is beautiful and the owners are more than accommodating. Mary met us on our arrival. The appointments in the unit are very nice and she couldn't have been more helpful. Lovely touches throughout including providing comfy bathrooms and food items for breakfast. Very restful visit.

A Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Where do we begin. We spent 6 evenings at La Petite Maison and honestly wish we could've stayed longer. Mary was there to greet us upon our arrival. Everything was in order and a welcome change from our hot valley weather. We became fast friends with Mary & Peter, what great hosts they are. The property is even more beautiful than the pictures. A purely delightful getaway. We have not felt so relaxed in quite some time. The cabin is perfect for two, you almost feel like you are in two different cabins as the upstairs is quite different. We loved the decor and the skylights above the bed (to us) were very welcoming. We were able to enjoy the stars a few nights that we were there and woke up bright & early, but don't fret, if you want to sleep in, they have provided eye masks for the guests. Mary & Peter have thought of everything. The property is tucked away surrounded by redwoods and Mary's beautiful garden. There's a pond in front of the cottage where Prince Kermit lives and lots of tiki torches that enhance the outdoor atmosphere. Fortunately for us, we were able to enjoy the wood stove every evening we were there. We prepared a lot of our own meals at the cottage, enjoyed the quiet atmosphere, put a puzzle together and again, just relaxed. Mendocino village is so close, we were able to visit the town, Ft. Bragg, Botanical Gardens, Point Cabrillo Light House, and the ocean all within minutes, but honestly our favorite was being at the cottage. We've stayed at a lot of VRBO homes, but will definitely make it back to La Petite Maison. Date of stay: Jun 23-28th, 2016. Gina & Gary
