About the owner: We feel very fortunate to be able to spend time at Bay Dream. We hope you can share in the experience of a (Bay)Dream Vacation and that you leave feeling as fortunate as we do for great family, great friends, great food and wine, and awe-inspiring nature.
Why the Owner Chose Mendocino: We vacationed in Mendocino for some years before we came upon this incredibly rare oceanfront lot for sale in 1995. We realized that to build a vacation home in this spot would be a once in a lifetime opportunity. We designed the home to be a vacation rental with the dream to use it on occasion for our family and to share with special friends.
The Unique Benefits at this House: LOCATION, Very Unique Viewscape up close and personal, as the house sits close to bluff.(House has small fence but still need to keep watch over children) With so much beautiful and fascinating drama of the sea and wildlife activity you do not feel the need to go anywhere! You can stay at the house all day and still feel like you have totally experienced the Mendocino Coast.
