Overview

Mendocino House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrroom, 2 bath, 1600 sq. ft home on a fully-fenced serene and private acre

“Redwood Majic” is a serene and intensely quiet property, ringed by towering magical redwoods yet located less than a mile from the charming Mendocino Village.

This two-story, 1600 sq. ft, two-bedroom, two-bath home is set within a private, fully fenced dog-friendly acre of lush ferns and towering California redwoods.

You will feel you are a world away but it’s just minutes to The Village or Mendocino Headlands State Park and its 350 acres of rocky bluffs and open space overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

This lovely home is an easy walk or short drive to some of America’s most beautiful countryside, miles of stunning beaches, hiking trails, world-class wineries and more.

To discover Redwood Majic, take the lovely drive west on Highway 128, then north along Highway 1 into the delightful Village of Mendocino. You will pass cypress trees and redwood groves, drive through the gates and up a long driveway lined with magnificent and ancient California redwoods, soaring over 200 feet into the sky!

The fast pace of the world will disappear when you enter this gracious home.

And while Mendocino Village is recognized for its excellent restaurants, our home’s large country kitchen has everything you’ll need for cooking wonderful meals. The Kitchen features an apron sink, open shelving and plenty of counter space and storage. A 6-foot-long butcher block island has seating for two and the dining table seats six. Just outside the kitchen is a high end Weber 3-burner (plus sideburner) BBQ set on an expansive wrap-around Deck with plenty of built-in seating and garden chairs. It’s perfect for enjoying a glass of wine while contemplating the stars and the stunningly beautiful redwood forest that rings the property.

The Kitchen and Dining Area flow into the Living Room graced with large windows and vaulted wooden ceilings. There is seating for seven and a new 42-inch Smart TV with access to hundreds of stations as well as Pandora radio for music. Bookshelves offer reading material, something for everyone, so slow down and relax.

Upstairs, the large windows in the light-filled 600-square-foot Master Suite provide views on three sides over the gardens and to the treetops. The Suite has plenty of closet and storage space as well as a large reading area with a romantic window seat featuring garden and forest views. A California King bed with a firm mattress is laid with fine linens and topped with a down comforter and the Bathroom features a skylight, plenty of plush towels, a large pedestal sink and a shower big enough for two.

The Downstairs Bedroom has wood paneled ceilings and views of the garden plus a fascinating redwood stump that was cut during the 1800s. It is easily 7 feet tall and covered with moss. A huckleberry bush is now growing from the top!

The Downstairs Bedroom features ample closet and drawer space, a California King bed with firm mattress, fine linens and a down comforter. Its bath, with pedestal sink and large shower, is stocked with plenty of fluffy towels.

The gardens—potted plants around the house plus an expansive open space fringed with ferns and towering California redwood trees—is acreage worth exploring. The property is rich with hydrangea, rhododendron, purple Princess flowers and lilac. See if you can find a fairy ring beneath the redwood trees! Local wildlife includes osprey, chipmunks, squirrels, possum, raccoon, deer and more.

Along the coast, we have otters, whales and seals and we are famous for our schools of sardines and salmon runs. Harvest Market offers a wonderful selection of organic foods and fresh fish but you can also buy direct from the fishermen as they unload their catch in the harbor, a real treat.

Come and visit our very special home—Redwood Majic in Mendocino—soon!

About Susie Edlund

I am a horsewoman by profession and lived in Southern California where I was involved in riding and polo—such joy! I bought Redwood Majic in 2006 and retired to Mendocino Village in 2015. I love the clear air and the slower pace of living here. And since I still travel a great deal, I love to share my home with others who appreciate all that our lovely little Mendocino Village and the surrounding area have to offer, that very special Mendocino magic and the magical redwoods.

Susie Edlund purchased this house in 2006

Why Susie Edlund chose North Coast California

I wanted to be in the redwoods because they are so very special but I also wanted to be within walking distance of the Village, beach and Headlands. Privacy and quiet were very important and so, after a long search, I chose Redwood Majic. Ringed by towering redwoods, Redwood Majic is a secluded and quiet enclave hidden from the world, offering that special Mendocino magic of clean air with a touch of salt from the Pacific Ocean, the magical redwoods and a slower pace of life. Our Redwood Majic is close enough to the ocean that you can hear the ocean crashing on the rocks during rough weather and the seals barking. And when the fog rolls in from the coast, blankets the Village and creeps across Highway 1, we at Redwood Majic are just far enough east to still enjoy California sunshine! Amazing!

What makes this house unique

Sunny days when it is foggy on the coast plus a beautiful redwood forest—serene and majestic.

Plus it is just minutes to Mendocino Village and the ocean, the spectacular Big River Trail and other terrific walks.

And because dogs are special, we cater to them with a fully fenced, gated acre where they are protected and can run to their heart’s content. You might not notice it because of the trees and the lushness of the property, but the fence is wire and will keep in the miniature dogs too. So, do bring your pets!

Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful place! Perfectly updated and its dogie heaven! The giant fence yard was perfect for our family. The house comes fully stocked and the owner is great to work with. Would definitely come back! It is on the small side and the master bedroom is fully opened so you can hear everyone down stairs but overall a great stay!

Fantastic house, close to beach, right in the redwoods. Best of both worlds!

  • 5 of 5

The house was impeccably clean. The house is beautifully situated, nestled in amongst the trees. Susie, the owner is very responsive and quick to accommodate.

Our family had an absolutely wonderful time here!

Less than 5 minute drive to Mendocino, shops, restaurants and beach/ state park. Wooded lot was private and beautifully maintained.

Amazing home and property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had an absolutely wonderful time at this home! It was immaculately cleaned (even my husband noticed!), very comfortable, and outfitted with everything we needed to cook meals. The property is gorgeous! The kids had a blast exploring and taking selfies with the banana slugs! Thank you, Suzie, for the hospitality and ultra clean home! We would love to return!

Perfect for cozy getaway with the pups

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our getaway to this lovely home, situated in a redwood grove very close to town. The description was accurate and the home is bright and very well cared for. We love to cook and the kitchen was well stocked with high quality pots & pans, a nice grill and even some of the basic staples like spices, olive oil etc. We did have an issue with the stove/oven while we were there but Susie called us immediately and said she would have someone take care of it. The place is also PERFECT for dogs given the very large yard-- big enough for running, ball & frisbee-- and fully fenced, but also doesn't look or feel "doggie" because she keeps everything spotless. She even provided dog dishes and a big basket of "dog towels" for us.

I would say that the place is perfect for 4 people who know each other well and don't need a lot of privacy. The master suite upstairs is huge and spacious, but it's built as a "loft" so that the area over the living room is a half wall. So people in the living room can hear everything in the master bedroom and vice versa. Also, the downstairs bedroom is quite small and while the 3/4 bath (toilet, sink, shower stall), are right across from the bedroom door, it also serves as the only downstairs bath so others will likely be using it. None of this was a problem for us as we had good friends with us but I just thought I'd point that out.

Overall the place was a hit in our book and we'd definitely go back. Too bad it doesn't have a 3rd bedroom because we had another couple that would have loved to join us!

Peaceful Redwood Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Place is as advertised. Stunningly clean and welcoming home. While you feel far away, you are only less than a mile to the village. Cooked dinner here on two occasions using the weber grill. Enjoyed a great dinner at Cafe Beaujolais! Dog friendly home, brought our two dachshunds who loved exploring the large fenced acre of land. Couldn't have asked for a better stay at this comfortable home, so close yet so far from Mendocino. Highly recommended and very responsive owner.

Thanks Suzie

Great Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this great home in the redwoods, just minutes outside of the town of Mendocino. We were lucky enough to travel and stay here with our canines and children who all had a ball. Many thanks to our hosts for hosting us! We will keep this wonderful home in mind for future visits!
