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.
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.
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.
A group of friends and I just had our family reunion at the Irish Beach house. It was spacious enough to accommodate our large group. We especially enjoyed the large deck and hot tub overlooking the Pacific ocean. I recommend turning off all the lights on a clear night and stargazing, we were able to see the Milky Way's trail. Between the hot tub, the grill, and the gorgeous views, we spent most of our time on the deck, but the kitchen, bedrooms, and many bathrooms were also clean and well stocked for our purposes. Irish beach and the rest of the Mendocino area was gorgeous. Be sure to visit the Point Arena lighthouse (we saw seals!), the Russian Gulch Park (waterfalls, redwoods, ocean cliff trails!), and the small nearby towns such as Mendocino and Fort Bragg.
Perfect layout for our extended family . View was wonderful. All things we needed were provided
What a delight staying here was! It is very well appointed with everything you need. My family chefs were happy to find they did not need the specialty pans they brought: it was already here! TV, DVD's, puzzles, books, binoculars, you name it. Beautiful views, large private master bedroom with master bath including walk-in shower and slider with deck access. 2nd queen bedroom is also private with deck slider and half bath across hall. Bedroom with 2 twins shares full bath with living room. Large dining room table, lots of seating including window seats in front of windows. Upstairs dorm room was very nice with skylights to watch the stars. This site needs better pictures: it would be booked non-stop, so maybe not! We want to keep it our secret as we plan to return! Only complaint: radio did not work so husband could not listen to "the coast". wifi was inconsistent but adequate: we had a lot of devices sharing it! AND dog friendly! I would mention it is not a good choice for kids or dogs who run away: it is right above Highway 1 and not fenced. Loved it!
We stayed at this Irish Beach location during our recent four week roadtrip. We enjoyed the house with spacious & clean accommodations while enjoying lots of rest and relaxation at the private beach. The open living area with a large kitchen table, family room with five recliners in semi-circle arrangement, and large deck made our stay very comfortable. The loft was great for the kids to sleep in. The view was spectacular. Also enjoyed the ocean wildlife at the beach.
We would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the Northern California coast.
Jon and Diane: Thanks for letting us rent your gorgeous home.
Our group had a fantastic time at Irish Beach. The house was just perfect for our family. It was nice to find a place with plenty of beds for everyone and plenty of seating at the dining table. And the kitchen was very well set up. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!
My husband, 2 sister's-in-law, brother-in-law, 3 nieces, 1 nephew and doggy stayed here last weekend. The house was PERFECT!!! THe pictures do not do the house and all its amenities justice. The view is amazing and we all enjoyed ourselves! The loft was perfect for the kids, they enjoyed having the WHOLE upstairs to themselves. :) The house is very pet friendly and the walk to the beach is possible, but has it's steep moments. My nephew brought his fishing pole, and to our surprise, caught two fish from fishing off the beach! It was a bit on the cold side and overcast but we all throughly enjoyed our time here. The hot tub was a nice option to warm up as well. The owners are awesome and have their house set-up for a very nice stay. Thank you!!
Less than an hour's drive are Gualala, Elk, Mendocino, and Ft. Bragg, with a wonderful botanical garden, shopping, deep sea fishing and whale watching trips, the Skunk Train going through the redwoods, and four state parks for hiking and sea kayaking.
