Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We bought the house in 2007 for our retirement because we can't think of anywhere else as spectacularly as beautiful. It is one of the world's truly special places.

Why the Owner Chose Mendocino:
We have long been in love with the indescribable Mendocino coast, and bought the house for our retirement. But, that's 10 years off, and we're renting it out for vacations until then.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The thing that everyone tells us when they leave is the incredible location on the ocean. Located about 15 minutes south of the Village of Mendocino, it is not too developed, yet neither is it too remote. In this special spot, Molly has focused on providing attractive woman's touches to make guests' time there comfortable, attractive and evocative.
