Overview

Albion Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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 local wines while watching the whales and seals play in the ocean. This, one of a kind house is an ideal getaway for a honeymoon, anniversary, or that much needed and deserved time off.

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

You will understand why guests call this home 'Desire' and why they all tell us they will be back next year!

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

Ocean front view from deck, house, or hot tub

  • 5 of 5

A daylight filled ocean front house. It had our top priorities for an ocean front vacation: an ocean view deck immediately outside the living room, a cozy living room with gas fireplace, a hot tub with view, a quiet private setting, and a full kitchen for preparing our own meals. We would stay again and would recommend to a couple looking for a North Coast getaway.

(A note to future visitors is that the gas fireplace is fully automatic and controlled from the thermostat next to front door foyer on the left wall.)

For a stark change from the Pacific Coast visit the Van Damme State Park Pygmy Forest at the very East end of the park!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This property is just as pictured. It's clean and comfortable with everything needed for a restful stay. It is right on a small cove with beautiful ocean/sunset views. Dealing with the owner was straightforward and a pleasure. One thing to note, the property is not far from the highway, so there is some traffic noise from vehicles crossing the bridge nearby, but the location is still very private and secluded. We loved our stay and recommend.

A perfect place to relax and experience the Northern California Coast

  • 5 of 5

The home is perfectly located with a spectacular view, privacy, a secure/gated entry and is close to everything but far enough away to make you feel like you are the only one around. The photos don't do it justice. The home has everything you need for your stay and is very comfortable, the amenities are as described and more than sufficient. Lots of light, beautiful views, relaxing outdoor spaces and a very comfortable bed. If you like nature, you will appreciate the bird watching, the wild flowers, the trees and natural beauty of the landscape just outside your door. If you enjoy the beach and hiking, the state parks are minutes away, easy to hike and full of amazing things to discover and enjoy. The owner and housekeeper were great to work with and thought of everything. The jacuzzi was always hot, well maintained and has an incredible view of the ocean, the home was very clean, well stocked and cared for. With one huge loft/bedroom, the home is just the right size for one person or a small family. I had a wonderful time in Mendocino and recommend this home if you are planing a trip on the California Coast.

Perfect place to relax and get away.

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly as describe and even better in person. When you first walk in, the view through the french doors is jaw dropping. We came here to relax and have quiet time. Desire was perfect.

A few tips:

The kitchen is well equipped with everything you might need.

The bathroom is large and on the bottom floor. The shower can be awkward to get into if you have mobility problems but was large and had two shower heads.

The bedroom is up on the second floor loft area with a very comfortable king size bed.

There are no curtains or blinds in the house and there are huge skylights so the house is flooded with light when the sun comes up. So plan accordingly if you're not an early riser.

Vijna is very helpful and a pleasure to communicate with.

We will be back.

Great location and adorable!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect distance from fort Bragg and Mendocino. Close enough to be accessible, but far enough to be quaint. Also it's much closer to the ocean than most places we saw. Back doors face the ocean, so we opened em and laid about on the comfortable furniture while enjoying the sounds and sights. Very "ready to go" with amenities all prepared. --Danny and kristen erickson

Wonderful place with incredible views

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for a relaxing and romantic get away. The sounds of the waves crashing on the rock below lull you to sleep at night and the views during the day are spectacular. Remote enough to be quiet, but close enough to all the wonders of the NorCal coast to be a must do location! Did I mention it's very romantic from the flames in the fireplace to the candles for dinner?
