Abalone Arch - a romantic and private guest suite on the edge of a bluff above a dramatic and private ocean cove on the rugged Mendocino coast, only two miles north of the village of Mendocino. Your privacy is of upmost importance! Behind a high entrance gate is a secluded and protected patio with two Adirondack chairs, perfect for sunset watching with a glass of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir. A private covered and protected deck has a rocking chair for whale watching. Discover the outside shower (there is an ocean view inside shower too) that is on the edge of the cliff above the arch and cove. The tastefully decorated “Coastal Living” style suite is charming and light. Inside the large windows, which are just fifteen feet from the craggy ocean bluff, is a comfortable king sized bed and a cozy sitting area with a gas fireplace. The granny kitchen (fridge, microwave, convection oven, coffee pot) comes with complimentary homemade cookies and granola (milk), local beer and wine, coffee and teas (cream), cheese and crackers. For those traveling with a computer, free secure high-speed WiFi internet connection is available. There is also an Bose Blue Tooth System, a CD player with CD’s, a flat screen TV and a private phone with unlimited long distance. Wake up to migrating grey whales, hungry brown pelicans, diving ospreys as well as the “S’s” – seals, sea lions and sea gulls. For those guests who can pull themselves away from relaxing and from their “ocean watching chore;” outdoor activities abound – hiking, cycling, kayaking, exploring - all within easy access in the several nearby State Parks. Just two miles south is the historic village of Mendocino with restaurants, theater, galleries and shopping. Forty five minutes east is the Anderson Valley where award winning pinot noir, chardonnay and sparking wines can be enjoyed in boutique tasting cellars.
