About Diane Heinzer

Jon & Diane built their home in 1971 when their boys were 10 and 13. With 2 bedrooms, one bath and a loft, they entertained their friends and friends of kids through college. But when grand kids came along, they expanded it to accommodate three couples , 2 .5 bathrooms and 5 twins in the loft. They have lived at Irish Beach longer than in any other home. They love sharing it with others, some of whom have been renting since they were children, and now have children of their own.

Why Diane Heinzer chose North Coast California

They bought the lot in the fog, but knew the 6 miles of beach was fabulous, and the gated entry to the beach road would keep it pristine as it has. Amazed to see the lighthouse when they returned a month later, the beauty of the setting captured them and still holds them here.

What makes this house unique

Each day is unique, living close to nature and with all the wildlife, changing sea and sky and beach, always different and the stars at night putting everything in perspective. The fabulous restaurants and wineries and artists and shops and scenic Hwy 1 help too.

It is a beautiful house with a wonderful view of the ocean and of Irish Beach.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for about 11 days and enjoyed our time here. Our grandkids loved the beach and exploring around the pond. It is a wonderful place to spend time together and we've been coming to Irish Beach for decades!

beautiful views, beach access, relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with 9 friends for a long weekend. We loved the views and it was a very comfortable home. More spacious than I expected based on the photos. Diane was extremely responsive and easy to communicate with. I could tell she genuinely wants her guests to enjoy their stay and we most certainly did. I highly recommend this house and am grateful we were able to stay there.

A homy and quiet hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for a wonderful charming and relaxing get away! The views from the living room, kitchen and master bedroom, on the ocean and nature are stunning! We enjoyed a lot taking our late breakfast on the deck. The kids loved the movies that were available and enjoyed listening to the CDs. Very confortable bedding and very nice to have 2 bathrooms. The spa is such a great way to end the day! Close to Mendocino and lots of beaches and nature parks near by. We'll definitely try to come back!

Great hosue

  • 5 of 5

We had a great a time! Irish Beach is great and the loft was perfect for 5 kids. They had an excellent time sleeping together. Be warned for kids with early bed times, the loft is open to most of the house we ended up hanging out in the Master Bedroom after bedtime, which was fine as there is a nice sitting room. The views and sunset are amazing.

The house was more spacious than expected and the deck layout and its positioning allowed for a beautiful view of Irish Beach.The house was well stocked.The WiFi was an added bonus.The 5 twins beds upstairs is well placed for the extra company.I must say i have been coming to Irish beach for the last 16 yrs and have stayed in many houses along the coast.The Heinzer house had an excellent daily rate..beautiful view...spacious and clean house and enough space if you have a large family or group gathering.I wish i Booked a longer stay 3 nights was not enough.Cannot wait to book again and i will be booking at the Heinzer house!!!!-Gabriel H.

Beautiful views and plenty of room!

  • 5 of 5

The Irish Beach House was a comfortable getaway for my friends and I when we visited the North Coast for a wedding. We each had cozy beds to sleep in and with 2.5 baths, we all had enough space to accommodate getting ready for the wedding! Diane was very easy to get in touch with and friendly in communication. The location is pristine, the walk to the beach less than 15 minutes, and you cannot beat the view from the deck of the house! One thing of note, cell service is pretty spotty in that area, so be prepared with directions to and from places, don't rely on your phone!

Overall, grateful for the opportunity to rent from Diane and enjoy her comfortable home!
