Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + game room with bed, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-12)

THE VIEWS DO NOT GET MUCH BETTER THAN THIS! The pictures give you some idea of the magnitude of the view down the coast, but to a tee, guests say it doesn't match seeing it in person.

When you walk in the front door, my best description is that it's like looking out of a cruise ship that docked on a private cove. With Russian Gulch State Park as our neighbor, you have a unobstructed view all the way down the coast to the Mendocino Headlands! Stormy days are majestic as you sit and watch the coastline explode as far as the eye can see. Sit outside on our large deck overlooking ocean and hear nothing but the waves while watching the migration of the gray whales, or relax in the hot tub with the same commanding views. We added a downstairs patio complete with a fire pit. Yet you are only 5 minutes from downtown Mendocino, full of great shopping, restaurants and nightlife. Russian Gulch State park is less than 1/2 mile from the house where you can hang out at their beach, Kayak the coves, or hike the trails to waterfalls. Take a stroll to the Pt. Cabrillo Lighthouse or a little further brings you to Caspar Beach where you can surf, kayak or simply lay back on the large sandy beach.

Back at our home, we have all the amenities you will need, from a full kitchen, cable TV, stereo, VCR, DVD, to a game room complete with a pool table, antique slot machines and exercise equipment.

Build a fire, turn on our funky fish lights (By artist Doug Rathbun), pour a libation and enjoy. Stroll downstairs to the game room and enjoy a game of pool, or walk outside to the hot tub that is situated with the same commanding views and look at the stars overhead. This place is truly special, no doubt about it. From its unassuming exterior to the warm amenities inside, we guarantee the place will take your breath away.

A little update. At this point we've owned the place for some 7 years (2011-2018). I still get chill's every time I enter the home. The views are commanding. You'd be hard pressed to find a better location. It literally takes 5 minutes to get to downtown Mendocino. There you will find a historic town ripe with restaurants, shopping, grocery store and a museum. 6 miles north you will find Ft. Bragg with all the above plus a harbor that offers fishing and whale watching. Don't miss the Skunk Train.

Welcome to Pelican Point.

You will love it, ...I guarantee it!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth year at Pelican Point. All six of us in our group enjoy the lovely view, comfortable furniture, well stocked kitchen and eclectic art pieces. We also enjoy that we can spread out. Pool table and hot tub are a definite plus.

Since I own it, I love it every time I arrive!

  • 5 of 5

I own Pelican Point. I never ask my guests for a review. I always love it when they do because it’s from the heart. I never want guests feel they need to. VRBO sends out requests and that’s OK, but I never want guests to feel obligated to. I’ve owned the home since 2011 and I enjoy the view every time I go there. It truly is a magical place!

Fantastic, Sunrise to Sunset

  • 5 of 5

This older home is very special. Layout is great for several couples or large family. The place is exceptionally well equipped, and the dual theme of music and the ocean provides an eclectic decorators delight. Plenty of seating inside or out for a large party to enjoy the homes best feature, a million dollar view! Don, the owner is exceptional in responding to questions and leaves no doubt that any problems will be addressed timely, etc... we had none. Just an incredible place to enjoy all that Mendocino has to offer, with a killer ocean view first and foremost.

Simply beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at the house my father built. I so wish it was still ours! I can't thank Don and Jean enough for renting it out. It has so many good memories for me personally and now we are able to make new, wonderful memories for my kids and grandchildren! Everyone had a ball (5 adults and 4 kids); the kids love the local beaches and the hot tub! The adults love being able to sit on that marvelous deck, soaking in the sunshine and watching the ocean. So relaxing and refreshing. God bless you! P.S. We found awesome macarons at Sweet Things in Ft. Bragg and the Christmas lights at the Botanical Gardens were great.

About Don Walker

My wife and I were married in Mendocino in 1981. We have always enjoyed the area and when we sold my mother-in-laws house in Hawaii we (I) embarked on finding an ocean front house there as a investment-rental for her.

Don Walker purchased this house in 2011

Why Don Walker chose Mendocino

I've participated in the Mendocino Abalone Cook Off several times and have taken the grand prize a few times. Always loving the area, I was looking for oceanfront property as an investment/income for my mother-in-law. After several tries (every time I made it over, the property I was coming over to look at would be in escrow) I got a call from my realtor about another oceanfront property. I made it halfway to Mendocino when I got the call that it went into escrow. Being halfway there I decided to come over anyway and look at other properties. The first one was what I now call Pelican Point. I really did not want to look at it because it was WAY out of our budget.

It was a beautiful sunny day. I looked at the house as we drove up and to be honest, I thought it looked kinda barn like, but my first steps into the home took my breath away. The fire was going and all I could see was coastline and ocean. It was (is) truly breathtaking! I had to have it!

It was a long journey to get the house. Suffice it to say, everything fell in line and this unbelievable house is ours, and we love to share it with others! It’s November 25, 2013 as I write this, and I’m even more excited about the place than when we first got it. It’s a great place to hang with family and or friends. We invite you to come share the experience. You will not be disappointed

What makes this house unique

THE VIEWS ARE MAJESTIC. THE LOCATION IS INCREDIBLE. IT'S LIKE HAVING YOUR OWN ISLAND NEXT TO DOWNTOWN MENDOCINO.
