About This Listing View Location >>
You won't believe the exquisite views from this farmstyle vacation house! If you are looking for peace, privacy and beauty you've found it! Relax in the hot tub and look out over a freshwater lagoon with the ocean in the background (1/4 mile away), and enjoy all of the deer, hawks and rabbits all around you! The property is set on 43 acres and is completely silent except for the sounds of the ocean, yet a six mile long beach, grocery store, and restaurants are all within five to ten minutes! The property is on one level and most of the rooms overlook a stunning view of the ocean and a large lagoon.There are also several walking trails on the property that lead to two private benches on a vista overlooking seemingly endless scenery and wildlife. Choose between five nearby towns for restaurants, galleries, fisherman's wharf, movie theater and shopping(Elk, Point Arena, Mendocino, Fort Bragg,and Gualala). There is a Six mile long beach within five minutes which offers horseback riding and relaxing. Fishing, biking, kayaking, surfing, and bird or whale watching are all right nearby. There is even a wild African animal preserve just 10 minutes away offering daily tours! Or just spend the day exploring the coastline and enjoying the remarkable vistas and scenery, and then come home to bbq dinner on the deck. This kind of relaxation is truly a rare find!

Just a little r & r in Mendocino for my wife, myself and daughter. Cozy and quiet cabin(more like a house). Enough room to fit a 2nd family. We had everthing we needed: washer,dryer,stove,microwave, and every kitchen utensil that was necessary. It had 4 beds and a shower and bath. The wood beam ceilings are beautiful. The place was clean as a whistle.We used a couple of space heaters and blankets and snuggled up and watched the the beach and water from the large glass doors in the living room.And took a dip in the 104degree hottub went it got dark. Walked the trail by the house and saw 3 deer and a beaver. Plenty of wild life: chipmunks, hawks and nearby farms with lambs,cows and goats. I took some great pictures of the beaches.There are walking trails and beaches everywhere.Bought some gifts in downtown Mendocino and the coffee at the organic coffee store was the best I had in 6 months. Found some good wine and at a decent price at the liquor store across from the general store in Pt. Arena. A little treacherous driving around Mt. View Rd., I should have driven up rte 1 which is a little less scary,plus you could stop by and see one of the early Russian settlements. Drove to a large garage before Pt. Arena and a lady had a consignment shop there with old furniture and miscellaneous items. Fun and old stuff. Found some old ball jars for canning and my wife picked up some jewelry. Drove to Geyserville and had a fabulous lunch at Diavola. There are wineries in every direction and stopped to pick up a few items at a 100 yr old store across from Diavola. What a GREAT weekend! I have stayed in a lot of fancy 5 star restaurants and hotels traveling to work on my food and wine blog. Every once in awhile you have to get back to your roots and see nature and find peace and quiet away from the city and technology. Kelley's place was right in the heart of it. Simple, restful, quiet, and close to everything I needed. THANKS Kelley for a delightful weekend ! It was nice to be alone with my family and show my daughter the beauty of this world and to meet other people. Will be back again. Next time with more friends and family... Steven.

WOW - what a great place. It was so clean and ready right on time. We were so impressed with the open layout of the home, the little touches that made it like coming home, and such a well stocked kitchen. The owners were great to work with and were super friendly. The dogs had a blast in such a wide open space. If you want peace, seclusion, and a beautiful view, this is the place for you!! The private beach access was wonderful. We all had a blast. Mom, dad, three adult children, two significant others, one beautiful grand baby, and all the dogs.....not ONE complaint from anyone. PRICELESS family time. Nothing beats sitting in a hot tub while watching the sun go down on the water. We will certainly be staying again soon!!
Stayed for 2 nights in early January, 2012 ... it was a last minute arrangement when our other place turned out to be a dive. Very happy that we came here (3 adults, 2 young kids). Lots of sun, cheery, comfortable, in good repair and clean, large property to enjoy, fun sitting in hot tub after day of exploring the area. Went riding 5 minutes from here (Ross Ranch beach ride)- was quite enjoyable. Recommend this house for anyone looking for a reasonably priced, well-located vacation rental in the Mendocino area.
My husband and our two basset hounds spent a wonderful relaxing week at this terrific home. So peaceful. The view is fantastic. The beds comfortable. We loved exploring the area. Dear grazed in the side yard. Bunnies visited every morning. It was so private that the dogs could be out without leashes and they loved exploring.

We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful location for a long weekend. The house was spacious for our needs and we found it exactly as was advertised. We hope to come back soon. Highly recommend!
Hi, First I must say that Kelley, the owner is very kind and sweet, and checked in with us about our stay. Feel awful to write a negative review, since most others are all great. Maybe my family and I are just too picky??? The price was good for us though. The location is indeed quiet, and did see deer one morning, but the view from the house is quite far away, unless you take the short trail to the bench area. Restaurants we tried were in Point Arena - a short drive away, but we were disappointed with the both we tried, Chowder House and Pheonix - not good at all, in fact awful! The house needs some TLC, new curtains (that actually open and close) a carpet clean, and kitchen needs thorough clean (the cooker hood was awful and even had cobwebs in it),and I had to clean everything before using it, and light fixtures need bulbs, and plugs in bathrooms needed to be fixed. Having the open bathrooms actually in the bedrooms was a little odd, but worked, although there is only one shower, the other room has a bath tub, so we had to shuffle around in the a.m.'s for everyone to get a shower.. The hot tub lid was extremely heavy, and took 3 of us to lift it off, but nice once you're in, looking at the stars. Fully stocked, plenty of towels and bed linens. The fireplace took the chill off the rooms. For the price is was fine, and wanted to like it more. Sorry.
Absolutely the best! This is our 3rd time back and we are looking forward to our next visit!

Comfortably Loved is how we had describe the home. We just returned from a 4-day weekend stay and found the home very enjoyable. The home is well stocked for your needs, just bring the groceries! Our Labs loved the daily multiple trail walks on the property. The benches on the bluff are a sweet surprise. It's nice to sit and take in the beautiful natural soundings. Amazingly, we found the beds quite comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped, as well as the home. The views from the home and deck are beautiful. Irish Beach is worth the short drive, what a rarity to see and enjoy. Directions provided by owner were helpful in finding our bearings. The owner is a joy to work with and we had an easy transaction. The home is a get-away-from-it-all relaxing home, yet close to stores & shops. Thank you!

Seldom, if ever, have I been to a more perfectly done rental. Very clean, with privacy & seclusion, but close to necessary stores and eateries. Pt. Arena is only 4 miles away, with beaches and the whole upper Mendocino coast quite accessible. It is well laid out for 2 families. Rural but updated. Open design makes it cozy but very roomy. Large bedrooms are totally contained and separated by the living area, so even more privacy. Well supplied kitchen and electronics. View form the deck, hot tub, living area, bedroom are ALL vistas. You really feel the North Coast pastoral flavor. A glass of wine is all you need to add. The bench is worth the walk even if the weather turns on you. With 43 acres to play on our dog was in heaven. We even had 2 doe and a fawn for daily visitors. And, yes we kept the dog in while they were there. The owner is a dream to work with and most accommodating. We are already booking our next visit to Mendocino, here.

What a great find, especially for dog owners!! We walked around the property quite a bit, and enjoyed the freedom from leashes for a few days! The beach nearby was fantastic (for walking purposes only), and access to the nearby supermarket was perfect! If you want an escape where you don't see or hear your neighbors, look no further! A definite return destination!
