Mendocino house description

THE VIEWS DO NOT GET MUCH BETTER THAN THIS! The pictures give you some idea of the magnitude of the view down the coast, but to a tee, guests say it doesn't match seeing it in person.
When you walk in the front door, my best description is that it's like looking out of a cruise ship that' docked on a private cove. With Russian Gulch State Park as our neighbor, you have a unobstructed view all the way down the coast to the Mendocino Headlands! Stormy days are majestic as you sit and watch the coastline explode as far as the eye can see. Sit outside on our large deck overlooking ocean and hear nothing but the waves while watching the migration of the gray whales, or relax in the hot tub with the same commanding views. We added a downstairs patio complete with a fire pit. Yet you are only 5 minutes from downtown Mendocino, full of great shopping, restaurants and nightlife. Russian Gulch State park is less than 1/2 mile from the house where you can hang out at their beach, Kayak the coves, or hike the trails to waterfalls. Take a stroll to the Pt. Cabrillo Lighthouse or a little further brings you to Caspar Beach where you can surf, kayak or simply lay back on the large sandy beach.
Back at our home, we have all the amenities you will need, from a full kitchen, satellite TV, stereo, VCR, DVD, to a game room complete with a pool table, antique slot machines and exercise equipment.
Build a fire, turn on our funky fish lights (By artist Doug Rathbun), pour a libation and enjoy. Stroll downstairs to the game room and enjoy a game of pool, or walk outside to the hot tub that is situated with the same commanding views and look at the stars overhead. This place is truly special, no doubt about it. From its unassuming exterior to the warm amenities inside, we guarantee the place will take your breath away.

Welcome to Pelican Point.
You will love it, ...I guarantee it!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: My wife and I were married in Mendocino in 1981. We have always enjoyed the area and when we sold my mother-in-laws house in Hawaii we (I) embarked on finding a ocean front house there as a investment-rental for her.

                  Why the Owner Chose Mendocino:
                  I've participated in the Mendocino Abalone Cook Off several times and have taken the grand prize a few times. Always loving the area, I was looking for oceanfront property as a investment/income for my mother-in-law. After several tries (every time I made it over, the property I was coming over to look at would be in escrow) I got a call from my relator about another oceanfront property. I made it halfway to Mendocino when I got the call that it went into escrow. Being halfway there I decided to come over anyway and look at other properties. The first one was what I now call Pelican Point. I really did not want to look at it because it was WAY out of our budget. It was a beautiful sunny day. I looked at the house as we drove up and to be honest, I thought it looked kinda barn like, but my first steps into the home took my breath away. The fire was going and all I could see was coastline and ocean. It was (is) truly breathtaking! I had to have it! It was a long journey to get the house. Suffice it to say, everything fell in line and this unbelievable house is ours, and we love to share it with others! It’s November 25, 2013 as I write this, and I’m even more excited about the place than when we first got it. It’s a great place to hang with family and or friends. We invite you to come share the experience. You will not be disappointed

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  THE VIEWS ARE MAJESTIC. THE LOCATION IS INCREDIBLE. IT'S LIKE HAVING YOUR OWN ISLAND NEXT TO DOWNTOWN MENDOCINO. NO BRAG, JUST FACT
