Mendocino house description

Gull Cottage is serene and welcoming. Step out of the living room onto a large deck with a hot tub and a sweeping view across the one-acre property to the ocean beyond the trees. The living room is bright and comfortable, with books and large screen HDTV. Dine on the deck or in the large,newly-remodeled eat-in kitchen with its additional gathering space. In the evenings, stand on the deck or the balcony or just at an open window, and listen for the sounds of the ocean and the cries of the sea lions. Choose the first floor bedroom with its twin beds, or a second floor bedroom with a king-size bed and a great view toward the water. The third bedroom, upstairs as well, is twin-bedded and shares the clean, crisp comfort that makes Gull Cottage a joy to stay at.
Take a short walk to Caspar beach or to our quiet neighborhood's access to the dunes and ocean cliffs. Or drive to the Village, just a few minutes away. The South Caspar neighborhood is in the heart of Mendocino's beauty.

                        This was our first and NOT last trip up the North Coast after moving to Cali from Utah. We have been missing the mountains so much and this is now a perfect exchange. This house is perfectly situated between MANY state parks - loads of beaches, forests and places to explore. The house has a brand new kitchen, bathrooms and the coziest beds we've ever had at a rental.The hot tub was a hit four our 2 boys and especially after 7 miles of hiking. The big screen tv was perfect to watch the Olympics in Sochi. Even though it POURED the WHOLE time we were there, we had an amazing time and a cozy house to return to to warm up and dry out. We could hear seals only the last day we were there but there were loads of frogs every night and wandering turkeys and deer. The house was exceptionally clean and we hope to return again soon as there were many geocaches we didn't get to due to the downpour.

                        Owner response: Thank you Cevan for the great review. Hope to see you again in the future. Love it when people enjoy my house for their vacation.

                        We attended a wedding at the Pt. Cabrillo Light House and wanted to be super close. This fit the bill perfectly. When we arrived we found it exceeded our expectations! Very up to date, clean, convenient to both Ft. Bragg and Mendocino. Communication was great with the owner....we'd highly recommend! Thank you!

                        We loved the house and enjoyed our stay. It was very quiet and everything was very clean. Loved the neighborhood and we wished that where we lived was that peaceful. I was glad that we were not any closer to the ocean because the sea lions are very loud day and night. It was not a problem at all because the house was just the right distance away from the ocean and the noise makers. Those guys party all night. The house is well decorated and stocked. It was the perfect location for us halfway between Mendocino and Fort Bragg. The Hot tub had some problems but the owner sent some one out right away to fix it. I am a pretty picky person and we have stayed in a lot of vacation rentals. I would highly recommend this house for a vacation rental!

                        The Gull Cottage is a perfect place to stay if you are wanting peace and quiet and a close proximity to the ocean. We walked to Casper Beach and the Cabrillo Lighthouse is just minutes away. Deer visit every day as well as wild turkey. The property is very clean and well maintained. The owner is very helpful in answering any questions. I would recommend this property if you want a wonderful getaway that makes you feel right at home. We had a really hard time leaving. It is in a great location just minutes from Fort Bragg and Mendocino. We were able to see the whale migration from the lighthouse...it was amazing!

                        We had a fabulous time at Gull Cottage. The hot tub was awesome and we enjoyed it almost evry night. Your house is lovely and suited our needs perfectly. I particularly appreciated the nice appliances in the kitchen. We loved seeing the deer and the turkeys raom around the property. They seem very comfortable there. The location to both Mendocino and Fort Bragg was great,too. We definitely had the exact vacation get-away we had hoped for. Thank you for sharing your lovely home.

                        What a beautiful property. As a property owner myself, I always go in an compare it with mine, because I have tried to supply my guests with all the amenities that they could wish for. I hate to say it, bit this home had more than I had hoped for. The pictures don't do it justice. On top of a beautiful home with an ocean view, we delited in the daily visits of wild turkeys and at one point a dozen deer. Thank yo so much for sharing you home.

                        We recently stayed for three nights at the lovely Gull Cottage near Mendocino. Gull Cottage is a delightful home set in quiet surroundings. It was spotlessly clean and well laid out. The kitchen is very well equipped and the furniture attractive and comfortable. We all slept well in the very comfortable beds. The owner was very welcoming and could not have been more helpful. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone wanting a calm and tranquil place to stay. We visited Mendocino, Cabrillo Lighthouse and Caspar Beach. But we just enjoyed being in the house, watching the deer and turkeys and strolling down the road!

                        Gull Cottage was extremely relaxing. The home is situated in the middle of a large grass plot,with wild turkeys,deer and rabbits frequenting the yard.We enjoyed sitting on the bench watching wildlife and listening to the seals. The road was quiet and perfect to walk on with children, not a lot of traffic at all. It was nice to be so close to the beach as well as the town of Mendocino. The beds were very comfy,ended up napping in all the rooms ! We will stay at Gull Cottage again, as the location was perfect, home was very nice and comfortable, and clean ! Thank you very much for the therapeutic retreat. Wish we could have stayed a week !!!

                        We were so lucky to find Gull Cottage available at the last minute before Memorial Day.The two story house was fabulously clean and well-kept.The master bedroom with deck is upstairs and looks out over the ocean.We were able to sleep with the window open and hear the sea lions barking and the waves crashing The house is well stocked with technology to enjoy including flat screen TVs and satellite TV as well as an upstairs stereo system.The hot tub was great. The bathrooms both had fabulous showers and were well stocked with all the needed products. All in all this was one of the best vacation rentals I have ever stayed in and my whole family agrees-we will be back again!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: I am a retired pharmacist who now has a second career as a sportswriter. I served on the Oakland Athletics Medical Staff from 1993 to 1998 and made many contacts in baseball. I joined the staff of SportsRadioServive.com in 2010 and I cover A's Baseball,some Giants, Sharks hockey and Stanford football and men's basketball. I am still licensed to practice pharmacy but the sportswriting keeps me extremely busy.

                      Why the Owner Chose Mendocino:
                      I bought the house in the Mendocino area as it is a 3 hour drive from San Francisco. You drive through beautiful vineyards on the way and pass through a magnificent redwood forest. One cannot believe the beauty of nature. I am always amazed every time I make the trip to the coast.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Love the peace and quiet and the serenity of the area. The magnificent Northern California coast line and the ability to visit the state parks such as Russan Gulch,Jug Handle and MacKerricher. Whale watching season is a must. The closeness of the house to Mendocino Village and the City of Fort Bragg. Great restaurants and good shopping make your stay memorable. One of my favorite activities is to drive up to Ten Mile beach and go for a long walk along the beach.
