Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom + 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Accommodations: House, 1 Bedroom + 1 Bath (Sleeps 2) .

This very private and romantic oceanfront Mendocino home is a spacious split-level set as close to the ocean as possible so as to take full advantage of the dramatic setting. The soothing sounds of the ocean waves rolling in and crashing against the rocks below will make you feel like you are on your own private island.

This gem of a house has romantic, private, and truly million dollar expansive views of the ocean from every room. The view through the French doors is truly breathtaking. A wrought iron spiral staircase ascends to the upstairs oversized King bed. The fireplace also has an amazing view of the ocean. The night time sky reveals a starry sky unpolluted by city lights.

The hot tub on the deck outside is a great spot for sipping wines while watching the whales and seals play in the ocean. Please enjoy a complimentary bottle of wine from Terra Vigna.

This home is close driving distance to the village of Mendocino, Fort Bragg, Point Arena as well as the renowned Anderson Valley wine country.

Please note the owner will send out address and access information about a week prior to checkin date of confirmed guests.

Cancellations Policy: If cancellation is made 30 days or more in advance of checkin date, guest will be refunded 100%. If cancellation is made between 30-14 days in advance, guest will be refunded 50%. If cancellation notice is given within less than 14 days, there will be no refund.

Because of the proximity of the ocean bluffs, children and pets are NOT permitted.

This, one of a kind house is an ideal getaway for a honeymoon, anniversary, or that much needed and deserved time off. You will understand why guests call this home 'Desire' and why they all tell us they will be back next year!

Clean, beautiful, comfortable and very private. In the mornings we sat on the deck and drank coffee overlooking the amazing view. In the evening, we watched the sunset from the amazing hot tub. Will absolutely be back!!

great location, amazing views, private

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing property. It was a very cute house with amazing views. The house had everything that we needed. Close to great restaurants and very private. After a day of exploring the area coming back to the house opening up some champagne and just enjoying the views was just what the doctor ordered.

A rejuvenating place!

  • 5 of 5

“Desire” Home was everything we hoped for and more. The views were spectacular and the home was cozy and comfortable. I was able to enjoy early morning yoga while watching and hearing the waves crash against the rocky coastline. Heaven! We spent a rainy evening sitting in the hot tub with our favorite wine and beer appreciating the amazing scenery. Truly an excellent place to rejuvenate.
