Amazing place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the beach house for my boyfriend's 40th birthday with four friends, and it couldn't have been more perfect. We never left the property, except for the 5 minute walk down to the private beach! The house layout is awesome -- the kitchen, dining area, and living room are in one big space, so you're always able to hang out together (especially during food prep). The view is stunning -- a view of the ocean and a dramatic rock jutting out of the sea, framed by a beautiful green canyon. Whether you're inside or outside on the deck or in the hot tub or even in your bed, you have this amazing view There's floor to ceiling windows along the entire west-facing side of the house, so even if it's chilly outside, you can sit inside next to the fire and have the exact same view. It feels totally private -- you can't really see other houses. We'd love to stay here again!

Great for people with dogs

  • 3 of 5

Pictures represent home accurately. Location is prime, being situated down a private gated road. View is wonderful. Beach is very nice and uncrowded once you hike south aways. However, I cannot recommend this rental to anyone without dogs. We do not have dogs, and had some issues stuff. The Owner was very kind, and not a problem to communicate with, and addressed the issues in a very timely and concerned manner. If you own dogs...this is the rental and beach for you!

Nice location

  • 3 of 5

As of the day of our arrival we still didn't have directions or info in regards to getting into the property the owner said they had trouble with vrbo, emails, etc. but we got it worked out at the last minute. The location is beautiful, nice gated area for privacy, not too many restaurant's in the immediate area if youre into going out. As for the property itself its a little run down and the furnishings are dated. It needs some maintenance we could barely open the sliding glass door to get out onto the patio which is the only access to the patio so that was a pain. Cabinet doors falling off their hinge's, I fixed one myself. The master bed although comfortable was very squeaky. The place is nice the hot tub was great plenty of kitchen items, linens, etc. master shower was nice. So it does have its pluses for sure it just needs a little TLC. We noticed the property is for sale if that means anything. I would recommend it as a good place to stay as long as you are aware there are a few issues.

Best Vacation Ever!!! 10 STARS!!!

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed at Canyon Beach House 8/31-9/6/17 and we fell in LOVE! Diane, the owner was so lovely to talk with and so responsive with any questions I had! It was obvious in speaking with her how deeply she loved her beautiful vacation home and the whole north coast! When we arrived at the Canyon Beach House the view of the ocean and beach were much closer than we thought from the pictures and the view was ABSOLUTELY breathtakingly beautiful! You seriously could stare at that view all day long just mesmerized and since you can see the view from the 2 bedrooms, kitchen, great room, deck, spa and yard it was very easy to enjoy the serene and gorgeous view as much as possible! It took a mere 5 minutes to walk to the beach and in 2 hours of walking we didn’t even cover that 7 mile beach! We took our dog Leo who had so much fun and we have tons of fabulous photos to prove it! We saw Quail, Rabbits, Seals, Pelicans, Hawks, etc. on the property and at the beach. We truly enjoyed the hummingbirds and were so moved that Diane had a humming bird feeder as we have several at our house too! The kitchen was very well stocked with every bit of cookware, bakeware, dishes, glasses, utensils, spices, etc. that you could want so we cooked in every day. We also ventured out for a few dinners and brought some meals back to Canyon Beach House just so we could relax, eat and take in that magical view. We enjoyed food from Pier Chowder House in Point Arena a couple times, The Ledford House in Albion and Bridget Dolan’s Pub & Dinner House in Elk! The Pier had great food with low prices! The S & B Market minutes away in Manchester is SO stocked you can’t imagine! From all kinds of meat, cheeses, wonderful local produce and everything else—it’s like a full on large grocery store! The bed at Canyon Beach House was VERY comfy, the spa with the full moon, waves crashing and the beautiful view could not have been any better! We truly felt that we’d died and gone to Heaven! You can hear the ocean at all times inside and out, with windows open or shut and it’s sooo soothing! Before our vacation, we had listed out several walks/places we wanted to see but honestly we enjoyed the peacefulness and wonderful sound of the ocean 24/7 so much that we spent the majority of our time enjoying and taking advantage of the Canyon Beach House, amazing deck, spa and Irish Beach! We have found our new favorite vacation rental and plan to return soon and many times at that! 10 Stars for Sure!

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved it! Myself, wife and two kids (20 & 17) really enjoyed our stay. WIFI, TV, hot tub, ridge hike, beach, great kitchen it was a perfect three night stay for us. Next time we will do more nights. We had excellent weather for the trip, fog with a break in the late afternoon. Evening walk to the beach to watch the sunset just cannot be beat. Comfortable beds, great shower, games, plenty of room for all. Thanks for sharing with us. Also a very clean home. Well done.
