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 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.

Another stay in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We seldom do repeat visits, yet this was our third stay at Desire. What else to say?

The house is small, the perfect size for a couple to rest, read and reconnect in a quiet environment!

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Perched at the edge of the bluff, we watched the 20 ft waves crashing every 15 seconds. Yes, it was a stormy weekend. But even with all of the rain, it is still one of the very best views on the coast.

The bed was incredibly comfy. The kitchen was well equipped. Other than the crashing waves, it is a very peaceful location. It is in a "gated" community, so there is not a lot of traffic going by the house. The owner was great to work with.

Our Second Visit

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Desire in March last year and absolutely fell in love with it so we knew it would be the perfect place to spend our anniversary. We love everything about this place: eclectic decor, comfy furniture, toasty fireplace, hot tub with the perfect view. Plus it's very clean and stocked with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We really feel like it's our home away from home and can't wait to return for a third stay.

Desire

  • 5 of 5

This home is spectacular. The deck overlooks the Ocean. We could sit for hours and watch the water splash against the rocks and cliffs. It is very comfortable and warm inside. It provides everything we need and more like the hot tub, bubbly, TV, board games and a complete kitchen with all of the right utensils. It is well maintained and clean and the duel shower is an added bonus. We have visited "Desire" twice and we will always look to see if this home is available before we book a reservation elsewhere.

PERFECT!!!

  • 5 of 5

Spending time at "DESIRE" is a must. We have spent many years going to the North Coast and have finally found a gem. "Desire" is everything anyone could possibly want. Privacy, quiet, relaxing, secluded and what a view!! You feel as though the Pacific is yours. Vinja Mathew is simply wonderful to talk to and deal with and so kind to open "Desire" to us. It broke my heart that we had to leave such a beautiful place. We will return.
