Mendocino house description

Imagine driving by scenic wine country vineyards, through a redwood forest, along a peaceful and beautiful stretch of the California coast, and arriving at Irish Beach and The Corey House - the perfect home base for your vacation.

The house itself is luxurious and comfortable, but what makes this home truly special is the idyllic location. No photograph can convey the beauty you will see and the peace you will feel when you are in this house. Safely situated on a gentle hillside, the house is just a few hundred feet from the ocean. What you will see from the great room is miles and miles of ocean and coastal hills. The Corey House actually overlooks one of the most beautiful 'Vista Points' in the state. There are no houses or cars in your view, just the ocean, mountains, pastures and an assortment of animals, such as sheep, deer, donkeys, and birds.

Completed in 2006, this roomy 1500 square foot house was designed to be a peaceful and serene vacation home. The design is spacious and uncluttered, with soft neutral walls, lots of light, and large windows with beautiful whitewater ocean views from every room, even the bathrooms. The marble-surround gas fireplace, sound system in each room, and lights with dimmers throughout the house allow you to relax as you wish.

Sleeping up to six, there are two bedrooms and an open reading room with a sofa that converts to a double bed. One bedroom features a California king bed, TV, walk-in closet, and a fully tiled shower for two. The other bedroom has a queen bed and tiled shower with bathtub. The bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house, and each has its own deck. There are five separate decks, over 900 square feet in all. You can also relax in the very private, five-person, outdoor spa, and gaze at the stars or enjoy the sounds and sight of the ocean.

The beautiful, five mile long beach is just a few blocks away, one minute by car. A special passkey for the private, gated road down to the beach is included with your rental.

For a more complete picture of The Corey House through the eyes of the guests who have stayed there, read the guest reviews and comments below. All but the most recent comments in the guest book at the house have been entered verbatim, including the following:

'This place was paradise! We loved every minute of it! It was a perfect way for our family to relax and reconnect w/one another in such a nurturing atmosphere. We will never forget these three days together!'

                    My sister and I are writers and looked for a place to get away and accomplish a few goals--not always easy to do with husbands and energetic dogs to distract you. We couldn't have asked for more. The owner's have thought of everything. The view was perfect and everything about it was inspirational...not only for writing. Our week was a time of relaxation, spiritual renewal and creativity. Thank you, Alex and Cathy, for sharing your beautiful home. We hope to return next year.

                    Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, pet owners, girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, romantic getaway, adventure seekers.

                    Owner response: Thank you very much for the favorable words. You both were a pleasure to get to know through our conversations and emails. We truly appreciate all your kindnesses. We thank you for taking the time to write your review to let others know how much you enjoyed your stay at our vacation home on the central Mendocino coast. I agree that it is amazing how relaxing and inspirational the house and the view are. Whether it's two sisters getting away to do some writing, a family coming together for a fun and meaningful time together, newlyweds on their honeymoon, an individual seeking quiet time away from the crowd, or any small group of family or friends hoping to explore a beautiful area and to recharge their batteries, the Corey House is the perfect vacation choice because its location and view are so serene and majestic.

                    Leaving after an extended stay. We are going to think of this very special home every day. The warmth of the interior and the harmony of the outside design with the contours of the landscape give such a peaceful feeling. Every day that we sat on the bluffs overlooking the ocean—counting whales, seals, sea lions—we spoke of what a blessing this house, and its special location on the coast, is. And each day, no matter how spectacular, peaceful, invigorating—we were always in a hurry to get “home” to the Corey home. We will be thinking always of this beautiful serene piece of place. Scott, Tree and, of course, Bob Cape Neddick, Maine

                    Our first night we were greeted by a lone donkey and four deer out the back window in the field. The donkey made its loud point to us but we had nothing for it. We made sure we picked up a supply of apples and carrots the next day. We saw deer the next day but no donkey. Finally, on the 12th, FIVE donkeys appeared and they devoured the apples and carrots. It was fun to hear the crunching noise as they chewed. It is so peaceful here and the weather has been perfect. We climbed to the top of the nearby lighthouse and visited the only store in town which stocks just about everything. Great meal at the Chowder House. This house is very comfortable and has everything you could want. A great get-away. Tom, Julie, Lola and Ollie (Sacramento Charlie and Barb (Roseville)

                    As I rise at dawn to watch the early morning fog recede and the deer quietly feed, I am so grateful for peace and solitude. Your home is beautiful, organized, plentiful and restful. We felt completely comfortable from the moment we entered. Walking amongst the kelp and driftwood at Irish Beach and climbing to the top of the Point Arena lighthouse was delightful. Visiting the lighthouse at Point Cabrillo, walking through the forest, ending with a fantastic massage in Mendocino. But the best was the quiet repose in your home, on the deck reading or in the hot tub, surrounded by curious donkeys. We were even fortunate enough to have seen a small fox! May god richly bless you for being so generous and gracious to open your doors to others. Thank you for everything. Barbera San Diego, CA John 3:16 ~ Psalm 8:9 ~ Psalm 24:1-2

                    Well, what to say other than thanks for everything. The place has exceeded our expectations for sure. Favorite activities were the simple things—watching the stars, walking on the beach, good conversation, and just staring into space. We love the Corey House. Everything is well organized and the design and layout are superb. "Stick together, learn the flowers go light.” Gary Snyder John and Sandy, Ankeny, Iowa

                    Thank you so much for sharing your vacation home! We had a wonderful time exploring the coast, and Jack especially enjoyed seeing the donkey who stopped by today. Sadly we did not have any snacks for them and were justly brayed for our forgetfulness. Looking forward to visiting again soon! Nolan and Jack the wonder dog Lathrop, CA
