Mendocino estate description

DragonMist Estate - Your Premier Accommodations for your Vacation Home Rental and for Special Occasions on the Beautiful Mendocino Coast of Northern California.

A uniquely Private Estate on 23 Acres of forested, Ocean-View property, bordering Hwy. 1 overlooking the Pacific Ocean, located 3 miles (6 minutes) South of Mendocino Village, 3 miles from Little River Airport.

Beautifully sited on a gentle knoll above rolling meadows amidst redwood and pine forest, this spectacular 1,000 square foot Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired contemporary Guest House affords fantastic white-water ocean and long coastline views. Accessed via a meandering paved private road, this is one of the most spectacular and secluded settings on the Mendocino Coast.

DragonMist Estate provides the perfect accommodations for weekend getaways and vacations for couples and families, as well as special occasions and celebrations.

Banks of large picture windows, sliders and extensive wrap around decks, provide constant 180 degree visions of ocean, forest and gardens with dramatic white-water ocean views from every room.

The Private Guest House has its own private covered entrance and a separate, dedicated parking area. The Guest House has one private bedroom with a king bed, full bath and whirlpool/spa, a loft with 2 queen beds and half bath, full kitchen, entertainment center (including big-screen TV, satellite, DVD, VCR, CD/I-POD stereo), wood-burning fireplace. Sleeps up to 6. Immediately outside the Guest House sliders is the 8-person ocean view whirlpool spa (for your exclusive use). Spectacular meadow, forest and ocean views delight from both floors with 16 foot high windows and sliders.

With a Guest House rental, guests also have use of the Recreation Suite accessed by a covered entryway and their own private security code. This fun-filled 1,100 square foot Recreation Suite has ping pong, pool, foosball, chess table, piano, flat screen HD TV with surround-sound, CD/DVD/VCR, and many other games. Finally, guests have access to all outdoor activities on the estate: including hot tub/whirlpool spa, custom-designed firepit, propane BBQ, trampoline tree swing, basketball, horseshoes, bocce ball, hammock, rocking chairs, multiple patio tables and chairs, ocean-view benches and many beautiful walks and trails through meadows and forests.

The Home is very family and baby friendly (see suitability/age restrictions). A full-size crib, basinette and port-a-crib are available at no extra charge, includes bedding.

Storage is available for your bicycles, kayaks, and canoes at no extra charge.

The rolling hills of the property have numerous walking paths, quiet meadows with benches, intimate forests and truly amazing white-water and blue-water ocean views.

Enjoy walks through meadows and forests, relax on benches overlooking the ocean, take a swing on our trampoline tree swing, take a nap on the hammock, enjoy some wine on our 'conversation rocks', barbecue dinner on the propane BBQ, shoot some hoops on our basketball court, try your luck at horseshoes, soak in the 8-person ocean-view whirlpool spa reserved for your exclusive use during your stay, enjoy the peace and tranquility of DragonMist.

Maybe you'll catch a glimpse of our local wildlife - red-tail hawks, deer, wild turkeys, turkey vultures, rabbits, quail and numerous other birds. Watch our fawns scamper and play!

This remarkable Estate provides the perfect accommodations for weekend getaways and vacations for couples and families.

COME TO DRAGONMIST ESTATE FOR A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME EXPERIENCE.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1999

                      About the owner: Gary - retired emergency medicine physician and real estate entrepreneur, husband, father and grandfather, extraordinaire! Toni - retired medical group administrator, wife, mother, and Memaw to 9 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren! (One of them is a girl!) Oh, my!

                      Why the Owner Chose Mendocino:
                      We built the DragonMist Estate so that our immediate and remote family could enjoy this special location. DragonMist Estate is our primary residence. Now that we are 'empty nesters,' we have decided to open our home to short-term getaways, longer vacations and special occasions and celebrations. We are very excited about sharing our special property with special guests!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                      The DragonMist Estate is extremely private, enjoying 23 acres of meadows, forests and spectacular white-water and blue-water ocean views, close to beaches, state parks, and The Village. The Private Guest House is perfect for couples and families as it allows the guests to access all of the outdoor amenities while staying in a very comfortable cottage, and can accommodate 2 to 6 guests.
