                          e-mail for rate quote. I do not do "Book it Now". I talk with each potential guest before booking the house. The total 2 people would pay for 2 nights, low season is $931 which includes property managers's booking fee, cleaning company fee, spa prep fee, 11% lodging tax and a small utility surcharge (rent is same as 2005). We offer a "couples special" for $820.

                          Low season = October through April

                          Owner personally talks with all potential guests.

                          $300 booking fee holds the dates and becomes refundable security deposit when rent is paid and rental agreement signed and returned. 1st half of rent due within 10 days. 2nd payment due 3 weeks prior to reservation date.

                          Discount for paying by check.


                          Please wait... Travel with confidence

                          Pay with an approved method (credit card, check, or bank transfer) to protect your payment up to $1,000. Before making a payment always call the owner at the number listed on our website, and never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: Bill and Pat Scheuner live in the middle of rural Camino in El Dorado County. They are members of the Apple Hill Growers Association made up of 50 family farms. Since 1978 Grandpa's Cellar has been Pat's main occupation. Bill worked as nursery manager for the U. S. Forest Service. After retiring in 1990 Bill started working full time in the apple business. Son, Bill, Jr. and daughter, Karen grew up helping and are now pursuing their careers out of El Dorado County.

                          Why the Owner Chose Mendocino:
                          Tideaway was the dream of John and Marcia Clark back in the 1960’s when they purchased the property. Years were spent coming to the coast to clear the land and planing for their retirement home. In 1972, Frontier Homes was chosen for builder of this old growth redwood home with the modern, classic style fitting the rustic Northern Coast. The home was designed by Marcia to capture the 180 degree panoramic views from the bluff. There is probably no closer dining to the edge of the Pacific Ocean than this vacation rental. Pat Scheuner, Marcia and John’s niece and husband Bill have been coming to Fort Bragg for over 40 years to help them accomplish their dream. The Scheuner family is now sharing this special property with visitors as a vacation rental. The guests enjoy Marcia’s artwork and artistic touches throughout the home and her gardens with something always blooming. The Aquatic Center displays a plaque of John and Marcia naming the natatorium after them due to their generous donations. We hope all the visitors to the coast will take advantage of this wonderful indoor water park for the whole family. Pat and Bill come to the coast from El Dorado County from time to time to “tend to things” as Bill puts it. Our plan is to continue to rent Tideaway to the many people who appreciate the home and property and take care of it as if it were their own. We are very lucky to have such loyal, returning visitors. Thank you. Bill and Pat

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          It's all about the view! We find that we can sit for hours and watch the ever changing sea. The location is convenient for walking to the Mendocino Coast Botanical Garden and driving a mile to our favorite Harvest market.
