About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms , 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

This 1860's home is large and comfortable. Although home is rustic and a bit funky, (Over 155 years old!) beds are all new and very comfortable, and it the only home in the entire area with a large yard and path directly to the beach from the large back yard. Great for a couple or a family.

Great for a couples or a family. Everything is within walking distance, including coffee, restaurants, ice cream, two beaches, whale watching, live theater, shops and site seeing.

For that true needed relaxation the Mendocino beach house is the place. Just watch the waves from your deck as you drink some local wine, have a picnic lunch, or take a walk down the special beach path and explore the caves and look for shells and sea glass. Great for 4 weeks or more!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at the Mendocino beach house was excellent. The house was really comfortable and full of interesting artwork . The yard and views were beautiful. The walk to the beach was quick and you could see the ever changing beach from the house. The garden art was unique and it was so fun just to explore around the house and yard. The home was close to everything we needed and our dog charlie especially enjoyed the trip! Cheers to the beach house!

Cozy, well-situated home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in Mendocino and in this home. It is minutes from everything you could want to do or see, the yard is fun, quirky and very big-kid friendly and the beach walk is a stellar bonus! We would definitely stay again.

Amazing place to rejuvenate!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a wonderful time relaxing and enjoying the views and vibes of this beautiful Mendocino home. The spacious living room was a great home base for socializing, mingling, and a whole bunch of R &R.

The walk to the beach is almost as enjoyable as exploring the beach itself. Downtown Mendocino is adorable with plenty of fun unique shops waiting to be explored.

Highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a getaway to a wonderful area.

5 star location, 3 star accomodations

  • 4 of 5

This might sound like I am complaining but I am not -- just think it is helpful for people to know what to expect...I would have enjoyed my time even more had I known: The place is cluttered and in need of a good cleaning (spider webs in the windows); dirty windows; the linens are slightly better than Motel 6...slightly... and the kitchen layout will drive any even part-time cook insane. Almost zero counter space, no toaster, no coffee. No bathroom amenities, the shower had old bar soaps from others in there. But the location is fantastic...private path to the beach...can't beat that. Finally, I was there when it was really cold outside (freezing at night) and the energy efficient Nest (which I appreciate) was awful in that you had to get up during the night to turn it back on so you didn't freeze your butt off. Other than that, bright, sunny windows (probably a delight in the summer), wonderful view and did I mention the private path to the beach?
