Property description

We named our home Sanctuary By the Sea because it is truly a haven to relax and rejuvenate. Step away from your everyday stresses and live life as it was meant to be.

Gaze at the ocean with views for miles and miles of the dramatic Northern California coastline. Watch the wildlife—pelicans, Canadian geese, even a family of 3 bald eagles as they soar. Gray whales migrate past the cove and you have a front-row seat.

Enjoy our beautiful oceanfront home with panoramic whitewater views from virtually every room in the house. The home sits on over an acre in the exclusive gated community of Pacific Reefs in Albion. You will say “WOW” when you walk into the beautiful home and look out the window at the crashing waves. The home is open, bright and quiet—only the sound of the waves can be heard.

Master bedroom suite has spectacular whitewater views. There is a king bed with 600 thread count linen. Master bathroom has granite countertop and luxurious thick towels. Linen and towels are provided at no additional charge. 2nd bedroom has ocean views and a queen bed with luxurious linens. Large 3rd bedroom has full and twin beds.

Watch the waves crash while sitting in the warm and inviting living room with wood-burning stove. Vaulted ceilings create a spacious room. Large picture windows practically bring the outdoors in. Beautifully appointed with leather furniture. 37” TV with satellite service, DVD player, CD player and Bose & Definitive speakers.

Large dining table with comfortable seating for 8. Enjoy your meals while watching the ocean views from huge windows on 3 walls.

Fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, electric glass cooktop, microwave oven, toaster oven, icemaker and blender. Coffee grinder, coffee maker and electric tea kettle also provided.

2 spacious decks--one has a gas grill and dining area and the other has a private hot tub offering dramatic ocean views.

Why cook when there are 2 gourmet restaurants within a 5-minute drive. The Ledford House is just over the bridge (a 2-minute drive) and offers a nightly bistro dinner featuring 3 courses. Albion River Inn is just a few minutes beyond Ledford House and offers Happy Hour with wines and complimentary appetizers. We are just 7 miles south of Mendocino which has even more dining options.

Come see for yourself what you’ve been missing all your life. You’ll be back again and again.

This is a completely non-smoking property, inside and out. No pets allowed.

Since we are on septic and well, we can accommodate a maximum of 7 guests. All visitors, even those who visit during the day, are considered guests.

We rent the house by the number of bedrooms needed and number of guests. Please specify the number of guests to get an accurate quote.

2 nights minimum stay. Holidays & special events require 3 night minimum. Weekly and low-season discounts available.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We’re Janet & Flint. Although we first met in college, we went in separate directions to pursue our individual life dreams after graduation. As fate would have it, 8 years later we reconnected again in the Bay Area as we each started our careers. The timing and circumstances were apparently right, and we have been together ever since, first living in Silicon Valley and then relocating in 2010 to Santa Rosa, California.

Why the Owner Chose Mendocino:
We had been visiting the Mendocino coast for years. When we moved to Santa Rosa, we realized that we were close enough to Mendocino to enjoy a place of our own…. a Sanctuary By the Sea. We knew this was the right property as soon as we walked in the front door and saw the spectacular oceanfront views of Whitesboro Bay. The unobstructed whitewater and coast views are the ultimate in relaxation, especially from the private hot tub. We love spending time at the Sanctuary but our work schedules keep us from visiting as much as we would like. We decided to start sharing the Sanctuary just last year with VRBO guests.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sanctuary By the Sea has the unique blend of seclusion and privacy (private community with locked gate), yet very close to the unique and diverse activities of the Mendocino coast. Just 7 miles north is the quaint village of Mendocino, with world-class restaurants and shopping. We are close to the wine tasting region of Anderson Valley as well as the unspoiled beauty of hiking, kayaking, canoeing and diving in several nearby state parks. There is a sand beach just 5 minutes away. Or, just simply relax… at the Sanctuary By the Sea.
