Property description


At our expansive beach house you'll enjoy breathtaking views of the seven-mile long Irish Beach, the Pacific Ocean and the rocky northern California coastline. Watch the whales migrate, take a hike through the quiet majestic redwoods or explore the coastal bluffs and feel the surf crash upon your toes. During the day you may wish to explore the artist colony of Mendocino, a charming town with plenty of gourmet dining, art galleries and interesting boutique shops. Unwind, relax and bask in the elements....

...It's your vacation and we have the place for you to stay.

The awe-inspiring environment makes this an ideal retreat for any couple and their family. The Friederichs' Beach House is unique; beautifully finished with redwood, oak and cedar. It is lovingly designed and maintained with attention to comfort and detail. You'll find all the necessities and more in one of the finest get-aways on the Mendocino Coast.

Simply bring your own food, sheets and towels. Before you leave we ask that you clean the house for the next guests, an act of courtesy that we can all appreciate.


Soak your cares away--if you have any left. Just lay there in the hot soothing water listening to the birds and the breakers--watching the fiery red sun dip into the ocean with the expanding glow of evening settling in. Don't get out yet--the first stars are waiting to blink back at you and tell you that there is more to life than just you and me. The Milky Way will greet you then and draw you into its majesty. All your cares seem so small compared to the infinite universe.


Three decorated, spacious and comforable bedrooms plus a large loft for the kids that want to stay up all night. All the bedrooms have queen-size beds. The loft is equipped with floor mattresses suitable for sleeping bags. Bring your own sheets, towels and sleeping bags.

Conveniences for a gracious vacation living include a full stove and oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, toaster oven, coffee maker, Belgian waffle maker, glassware, silverware, pots, pans, BBQ tools, spices and condiments. Home heating is by a gas furnace or wood stove (your choice).

Entertainment and soothing music provided by a DVD/CD/VCR player. There are plenty of DVD's to view and books to read. There is NO television, cable or streaming internet service available.

Relax on the deck overlooking the Pacific featuring, deck chairs, chaise lounges and a hot water spa.

...A stunning and magical home that will always hold a treasured place in our memories.


Life can be wonderful especially if you love to fish. Cabezone, salmon, steelhead, ling cod, rockfish of all kinds, sea bass and other superb fish are here waiting for your hook. One guest caught 125 fish during a one-week stay. Surf perch await a hooked sand crab to persuade it out of the water. Rockfish love a piece of squid on a #1 hook with a two ounce weight. They are waiting for you in those big deep pools below the house during low tide. Abalone are located there too, but they are a little more elusive to find. Some have good luck rock picking; others don dive gear and pluck them from the bottom. Scuba diving for fun, photos or spear-fishing is a great way to observe the beauty of the underwater world and bring home the bacon at the same time.


KIDS! How about poking your finger in a giant, light green, squishy sea anemone, or trying to pick up a hermit crab without getting bit, or playing 'tag you're it' with the waves on the beach. Okay, if I'm a kid I may--no I will--get wet and covered with sand, but that's what I like. How about soccer, football, volleyball, kite-flying, chasing your sister, climbing the rocks and doing somersaults? Teenagers and young adults--talk to your friends on long walks down the beach and back. The beach never ends! What about a trip to the Point Arena Lighthouse, preserve or wild animal park or a stroll through the shops in Elk or Mendocino?

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Brad is a structural engineer in the Sacramento area. We enjoy walks along the creeks, talking and doing many things together

Why the Owner Chose Irish Beach:
I, Brad, am in my sixty's now but have been coming here since I was 16 with my family. My dad first brought us here to go skin diving for abalone. We spent many times in a campground with a trailer braving the elements until 1984 when my parents built the house with their own hands. It was a project that went on for six years. My parents are really proud of their accomplishment.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beach is 1/3 mile walk from the house. You can drive or walk. The view from the house or deck is exquisite. You don't have to go anywhere. Movies and books are here so you can kick back and do nothing. Driving to Mendocino or Elk to shop and eat is a favorite.
