Mendocino house description

LOCATION! Dramatic oceanfront home with whitewater views of the Pacific Ocean, Caspar Cove and Caspar Beach located just a few minutes drive north of MENDOCINO VILLAGE.

YOUR MEMORABLE VACATION STARTS IN A MEMORABLE VACATION HOME!
WEEKENDS and HOLIDAYS HAVE a 3 NIGHT MINIMUM.
WEEKDAYS HAVE A 2 NIGHT MINIMUM
From the front door or the back doors of Bay Dream you can WALK TRAILS along the HEADLANDS and down to the tide pools, or take a short stroll down to CASPAR BEACH (a 1/4 mile WALK or a 2 minute DRIVE to the SAND ), great for surfing and kayaking. You can rent kayaks and paddleboards at Caspar Beach. You can watch the WHALES migrating, and the SEA LIONS sun themselves from this exclusive peninsula, GATED on a private road where only a handful of homes have been allowed. BAY DREAM is one of them!

This contemporary home is LIGHT, BRIGHT, OPEN, and airy with lots of HUGE windows and high vaulted ceilings. With its 5 BEDROOMS (rare for an OCEANFRONT vacation rental) and 2.5+ baths, 7 PERSON upper deck HOT TUB, LARGE, FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN area with abundant seating and all the amenities, Bay DREAM is the ultimate home for larger families or special friends to experience a Mendocino DREAM Vacation!

One of the unique features of this home is its location CLOSE TO THE BLUFF. The ebb and flow of the tides pass right in front of BAY DREAM giving the house its own natural rhythm, a rhythm that seems to REPLENISH THE SOUL AND SPIRIT of those within. Many guests have commented on this phenomenon over the years along with their remarks of 'We did not want to leave'. Stay a few days at Bay Dream and see for yourself!

This open concept, MULTI-LEVEL home with its HUGE windows, decks and large HOT TUB provide endlessly-changing views of breaking waves, A BLOW-HOLE, fishing boats, kayaks, windsurfers, surfers, sunsets, and abundant wildlife! The incredible wildlife entertainment include whales, sea lions, osprey, pelicans, and gulls swimming and soaring up close and personal!

From the LARGE OPEN KITCHEN area you can VIEW the OCEAN with fishing boats, the BAY with kayaks and abalone-divers, and the BEACH with its surfers and paddle-boarders; quite an entertaining panorama. There are BOOGIE BOARDS and a Skim Board at the house or rent kayaks, surfboards, etc. at Caspar Beach. A wetsuit is recommended.

For more entertainment on the MAIN FLOOR you have a 60' 3D SMART HDTV with 3D DVD's, WHOLE HOME DVR (TiVo), home theater sound bar, all Direct TV Premium Channels, Direct TV Cinema (similar to Netflix), XBOX ONE and Wii Gaming Systems, a 3 CD Sony Stereo with MP3 capability, and of course, free wireless Internet.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1996

                  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. Just a short walk or drive to Caspar Beach, a great beach to swim, surf, kayak, skimboard, and paddleboard!
