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.

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.

Great place and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This house is the perfect place for a couple looking to visit the Mendocino/Anderson Valley area. The house was very clean and has everything you need and want. The bed is amazingly comfortable (and I'm picky about nice beds). The kitchen was well appointed and had everything you might need. The hot tub was always hot, privately located, and had a great view of the ocean. The house is also perfectly located just 10 minutes from Mendocino and 25 minutes from wine tasting in Anderson Valley. And the owner is incredibly nice and helpful. This place will definitely be our "go to" house when we visit the area again. Do you yourself a favor and book it. You won't be disappointed.

very nice spot on the Mendocino coast

  • 5 of 5

Over the years we have used many vacation rentals to explore the West Coast, from San Francisco to the Olympic Peninsula. "Desire" is on our top 5 list. A well cared for, and appointed unit. "Full kitchen" was full, Bed was very comfortable (would you mind giving us the info on who makes the mattress, we want one) Usually the first day we go on a nice long hike. Our first day here We hiked from the living room to the deck to watch the weather change from stormy to sunny and back again. True privacy with a great view of the Mendocino Coast. You could hear cars crossing the bridge on Highway One, but they were no competition for the sound of the surf and the view of the coast. Seriously, who made that mattress?

Another beautiful stay at Desire

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay. This time we stayed a day longer and it still wasn't enough!

We left the house for 2 hours to visit the beach and periodically to walk the neighborhood. Other than that, there was no reason to leave paradise!
