About the owner: Members of our family business Turnkey Vacation Rentals, Inc., have always loved the North Coast (Redwood Coast) of California. Whenever we would pass through the Irish Beach, Manchester, Mendocino area, we would always comment that it was (in our opinions) the most beautiful piece of coastline anywhere in California. It even tops Big Sur as far as we are concerned.
I am a writer by trade and have always wanted a writer's sanctuary where the views were inspiring and ever-changing. Besides being a place I come to create, I find it indescribably romantic. It's secluded, private, quiet and comfortable inside and out.
Our family enjoys Bowling Ball Beach, the Point Arena Lighthouse, going shopping in Mendocino, horseback riding on the beach and just hanging out at the house and enjoying the view. The beach is another favorite spot of theirs. it has the largest collection of redwood driftwood of any I've seen, and at low tide, we love the tide pools. It's a special place to make memories with anyone.
We named our home Villa Mer (Villa on the Ocean). Please enjoy writing in our guest book when you visit. Operated by Villa Mer Property Management, Inc. and Turnkey Vacation Rentals, Inc.
Why the Owner Chose Irish Beach: A Turnkey vacation rental, Villa Mer, is located in the community of Irish Beach and it sits atop a 150-foot coastal bluff. The single most significant reason we purchased this vacation home was for its enchanting views and the spaciousness of the home.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The single most enjoyable benefit we personally enjoy is our reconnection with nature. All you see from this home are the amazing vistas of the ocean, sky, clouds, sunsets, local wild animals, and birds. It's simply breathtaking and a pleasure to spend time recharging our souls.
We also enjoy horseback riding on the beach, walking on the private gated beach only a two-minute drive from the house, visiting the tide pools, the Point Arena Lighthouse just 4 miles away and making wonderful memories with our family, friends and loved ones.
