Mendocino house description

Artist Retreat

Get away to the glorious Mendocino coast and stay in a truly inspired dream house -- Erin Dertner’s artistically appointed getaway by the sea, ready to receive guests since the Spring of 2009. Boasting four bedrooms all with ocean views, 4 full baths, a large great room and a pool parlor that can become a 5th bedroom. Drive 2 miles to the village of Mendocino while being just far enough away to experience total peace and quiet, as well as taking strolls into Russian Gulch State Park which is virtually next door. Enjoy the ample “cook’s kitchen”, the outdoor hot tub, the expansive deck and the comfortable quarters, complete with Erin’s artwork adorning every room. We're on the west side of highway 1 in a quiet neighborhood, with ocean views to the south and west, from the living area and from all the bedrooms.

Perfect for 8 people, but 2 extras and seat 10 at the dining table. The master has a king bed and lavish bath with a 2 person shower and giant tub. A 2nd large room with king bed now has its own bath with shower, while a queen bedded room and a bedroom with a set of twins (that can be made into a king) share a roomy bath with large shower. The living room and both king bedded rooms have ample floor space for futons while the entry/pool room has a trundle for 2, which is also connected to the 4th full bathroom. With televisions in the living room and Art Studio room, many books, board games and your own pool hall, this is a perfect spot for groups of all ages. (For parties of more than 8-10 people, owners must give authorization and may charge extra.)

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: Erin and Tomas Dertner have been living and making art on the north coast for 27 years. Erin's work is represented by several national galleries and Tomas does picture framing and marketing. Together they are a remodeling 'Dream Team' with Erin's artistic expertise kicking in while Tomas knows just about everything structurally. They befriend everyone they meet, so be sure to look for them at the gallery / frame shop on Laurel Street in Ft. Bragg when you visit.

              Why the Owner Chose Mendocino:
              Besides being a quiet and exclusive neighborhood and its close proximity to Mendocino and Russian Gulch State Park, it is probably the most desirable location for vacation renting on the north coast.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Guest Comments: 'The bed was so comfortable that we went home and bought the same kind.' 'We leave here happy, peaceful and rested.' 'Loved every minute here, you thought of everything, the view, the remodel, the stove...we are looking forward to returning soon.' 'Your kitchen is equipped better than my house and I've lived there for 10 years!' 'We absolutely loved everything about your house. Looking from this gorgeous view was a real treat. You had all the amenities of any first rate spa, except no spa is surrounded by such gorgeous artwork.' 'We had a wonderful time in your home and truly appreciate your work in accomodating all TEN of us. It is amazingly spacious and has the most gorgeous view over lovely gardens, natural habitat and the sea. On the morning we left, two deer ambled into the driveway and helped themselves to some of your flora. Since we live in the city, it was a thrill to see them 'up close and personal,' as my daughter likes to say. I also appreciated all of the little touches you arranged and the ample use of your kitchenware!'
