Mendocino House Rental Photos and Description

Stunning Updated Home On the Ocean ~ Sleeps 8 Comfortably ~ North Coast Charmer

Overlooking Caspar Anchorage and the Mighty Pacific Ocean, just minutes north of the charming and historic town of Mendocino, sits a 4 Bedroom, 3.5 bath, 3400 SF home, we affectionately call Sea Ghost. And what a perfect location as well, for the Russian Gulch State Park and Point Cabrillo Lighthouse State Park are within easy walking distance and yet there is more, so much more!

Our home is just a few feet from the edge above a protected cove where recreation and peace, the surf and the wind make there subtle movements into your soul. Whether watching migrating whales, frolicking porpoise, seals floating on the water below, or pelicans in formation gliding inches above the water, Sea Ghost is a place to make memories for years to come. And the Osprey can seriously fish too!

Our home is spacious, comfortable and complete with loads of windows throughout, providing breath-taking views and ample natural light to entertain and relax by. We have a family room with a pool table, and large flat-screen TV, complete with Wi-Fi internet, Cable, DVD & streaming movies and TV shows. Additionally there is a separate living and dining room, 2 gas fireplaces for atmosphere and ambiance, an outdoor spa and an awesome “cook’s” kitchen, waiting for your lattes in the morning or wine pours in the late afternoon … yes, perhaps even a sumptuous gourmet meal, all with a view to come back to year after year!

Our home is Pet free, smoke free and thoroughly cleaned between guest stays. We offer discounts for longer stays, with early check-in and late check-out OK dependent upon guest scheduling.

Rate listed is for double occupancy (2 persons) w/ added charge for additional guests up to 8 guests maximum.

Our daughter was married at Spring Ranch during our stay; and Sea Ghost gave us the perfect venue to fully enjoy the joyful event, family and friends as well as the beauty of Mendocino.

Thank you!

Excellent house and amazing setting

  • 5 of 5

The Sea Ghost was very spacious and clean, set right on the cliffs overlooking Caspar Cove. Great views from throughout the house, especially the kitchen, living room and master. Very organized owner with helpful instructions on the house and amenities. Highly recommend.

spacious, clean, light, airy and uplifiting!

  • 5 of 5

So glad we chose this one! After lots of looking online, and everyone in our group having different opinions :), we were all so glad that Sea Ghost is where we ended up. It seemed even more beautiful than the photos, with gorgeous views and spacious rooms. The location up on the bluffs, just tucked into the cove enough to get the sun while the fog lingered out on the coastline, was perfect. The kitchen had everything we needed and very well stocked. Beds were all very comfortable and hot tub was nice and clean and hot. Beautiful gardens and 4 fawns parading along the fence above the sea cliff . A perfect place for a group of women celebrating a 50th and our friendship. Thank you for a great VRBO experience since we have had a few disappointments recently ;)

Stunning! Look no further - this is the place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights in July. The house was perfect for us - 4 kids (ages 7-9) and parents. The house was super spacious, clean and inviting. We loved cooking meals in the kitchen and watching the waves crash on the rocks.

The location was perfect. Just a few minutes from Mendocino and Fort Bragg. We also enjoyed the beach in Casper (you can see the beach from the house). To the left of the house is a little path that leads to a stunning place to watch the sunset (and watch the seals!)

This house has everything you need for a wonderful family getaway. The owner was extremely responsive, and we had no issues at all. The whole family cannot wait to plan another trip to Sea Ghost.

This is the place!
