About the owner: Our family business is developing residential homes we design and construct ourselves. The homes are available for short-or-long-term rental and for sale. We love what we do and think of the process as a multi-media art project on a BIG canvas! It is a lot of hard work, but also a creative and satisfying career. It is fun when we get to meet the travelers we host and always interesting to hear where they like to travel and why. Their comments are appreciated and help us build a travelog of places to go and things to do. The seven-acre Caspar Coast House property was purchased in 1996. The vacation rental home was designed specifically for the east side of the property, a 1-1/4 acre lot. It was designed with guest comfort and privacy in mind. Construction began in 1999, and was mostly completed by July of 2005, when we added Caspar Coast House to the VRBO listings and first welcomed our extended family for visits to help build word-of-mouth advertising. The 'art project' continues today and we're very happy so many folks return to Caspar Coast House to see the progress and renew friendships. The Mendocino coast is a wonderful place to visit.
Why the Owner Chose Caspar:
When looking for property to build a new home we considered the north coast to be the perfect place. Mendocino County was already home and everything we wanted in a place to live: Natural beauty, ocean views, a healthy eco-system, wildlife, quality restaurants, boutique shopping and cultural activities. There is much to enjoy on the north coast, including many parks and trails to explore. Caspar Coast House is located between two thriving towns, Mendocino and Fort Bragg. Each with their own unique personality and a variety of entertainment opportunities to choose from. The tiny community of Caspar has much more to offer than meets the eye. Caspar Inn & the Caspar Community Center offer live music, organic food and festivals. Cottage-crafts persons and many talented artists, working in a multitude of mediums, create wonderful products to shop locally for. The mild climate produces abundant varieties of flora and fauna and many lovely gardens. Tour the Mendocino Botanical Garden, '47-acres to the sea.' There is a lot of locally grown organic fresh food available, three-Farmer's Markets per week in the area and many fine-quality restaurant options for every taste and budget.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The views from Caspar Coast House are constantly changing. The light, color and textures of the ocean, sky, forest and meadow always provides something wonderful to see. The 'nature channel' is always on. Caspar Coast House is a great place to observe nature and the natural cycles. Peaceful and rural, there's much to appreciate and enjoy. There are many areas around the house and gardens to comfortably relax and enjoy the views. Add to the retreat experience by reserving time for a relaxing, restorative body work session at the on-site massage studio, used exclusively for Caspar Coast House guests. With the hot-tub and steam-saunas to use as well, it's as if guests have their own private day-spa to use anytime. Rest and restore, without having to drive somewhere else to share services with the general public. Everything at your leisure, for a fraction of the cost. Organic gardens on the property offer fresh food and flowers most of the year.
