  • Fantastic Place to stay!

    "I took my students (10 boys with special needs) on a four day trip to this glorious house! Everything was absolutely perfect! The "forest" alone was enough to entertain the most active children on the planet! Nearby was Fort Ross which provided a day of education as well as great beach time. To say that the house was well stocked is an understatement. We wanted for nothing! Of course we brought our own food and such, but any little thing we forgot was right there for us. There were games to play, books to read and endless fun to be had outside. The home is furnished with sturdy, well made furniture that looks great. My class has taken a trip like this each year for the past 15 years and I can tell you that this is not true for most vacation rentals. Probably the best part of the downstairs is the large dining room table. We were able to accommodate all 13 of us with ease witch allowed us to have family style meals. Upstairs, the master bedroom is out of this world! The views alone make it so worth the trip! The house was clean and nicely kept. Gary and Nancy were very kind and prompt with all correspondence. I can't thank them enough for the valuable lessons they allowed my students to learn in their home. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants a great get away for a group of people. You are on a large private lot with plenty to do right there at your fingertips! Thanks again Gary and Nancy! I know that good Karma will come your way! Susan Folsom, CA"

  • Bungalow Love

    "We along with another couple rented the house for the truckers parade. We absolutely loved this house. It truly felt homey to the four of us. The mattresses need to be updated. The hot tub was perfect and we really could have spent longer in the house. The parade was amazing to watch from right in the front yard. We were very pleased."

  • Best place for a Rustic Wedding!

    "We recently rented the entire property including the main house, loft and large wedding barn for our August Wedding. It was such an amazing experience, if you are looking for a rustic wedding venue I recommend this place hands down. You get the whole property for three days for a flat fee (NO additional charges are tacked on later) which means you can have your wedding party or families stay on the property and make it an entire weekend getaway. Regardless if you are renting the property for a wedding or a family reunion, the place is amazing. Its large living room provides a good place to congregate and relax. There is definitely something majestic the area. Remember though, this is an older Victorian home packed with history, you are not going to a Vegas Hotel, its rustic, thats the whole point of coming here and to Mendocino in general. We thought it was tranquil during our stay and then on Saturday, the perfect place for a big wedding party!"

  • Breathtaking Beauty!!

    "The moment I closed the gates behind myself upon arrival at SeaEscape, I knew I'd chosen well! From the lush gardens to the clean air to the sound of the surf, my blood pressure dropped 10 points by the time I turned the key!! The photos can't begin to convey the cozy comforts Seamus and Natalia have gathered for their guests. A fire was already laid and within 30 minutes, I was curled up on the sofa, under a soft throw, fire crackling and the surf raging below as a storm came down from Alaska! My dream come true...snug as a bug while a storm blew all around me throughout the night! I had two glorious days of solitude, roaming around the private yard and deck, enjoying the sunrises and sunsets that served to soothe my frazzled spirit before welcoming 4 girlfriends from Kentucky, Ohio, Seattle and Sacramento for our annual retreat. We all agreed that this was the most spectacular home we've ever rented from VRBO! From the well-stocked kitchen (LOVE the Fiesta Ware) to the abundant, fluffy towels and yummy bed linens, this was a home, not a vacation rental! Natalia has every imaginable kitchen gadget you could ever need and her condiment collection covers all the bases. We truly appreciated the little touches like zip lock bags, trash bags, dish soap and the personal care products, books and could literally arrive here with only a suitcase and basic food supplies!! The morning after the big storm found me snuggled in my bed, reluctant to leave my scrumptious bed and down I didn't till the afternoon!! Great beds and linens! When I finally decided to venture out, the towns of Mendocino and Ft Bragg were a beautiful 45 minute drive North along the coast, affording one spectacular vista after another of the California headlands and the majestic Pacific Ocean. It was easy to fritter an afternoon away in the galleries and shops of Mendocino and the Harvest Market in Ft Bragg has a lovely selection of wholesome, organic food. Make sure you celebrate the charming town of Elk with breakfast at Queenie's Roadside Cafe" Eggs Benedict ever!! Thank you, Seamus, for making the reservation process so easy and for sharing your lovely home with us. I've found my new N California home-say-from-home at SeaEscape!"

North Coast Travel Tips

The Beauty of North California Coast Vacation Rentals

The Northern California coastline is famous for its beautiful beaches, historic lighthouses and miles of hiking trails through the giant redwood trees in the national state parks. The area is a paradise for nature-lovers who can anticipate seeing herds of elk or migrating whales, depending upon the season. With quiet sandy beaches offering strolls along the water’s edge, museums, wineries and quaint little towns, the spectacular coastline is what keeps visitors returning time and time again to recharge their batteries and de-stress from their busy lives. A luxury vacation home or log cabin offers the perfect retreat.

The Many Benefits of North California Coast Vacation Rentals

For those looking for an away-from-it-all vacation in the midst of beautiful natural surroundings, a vacation rental is the perfect place to stay. Whether you want an ocean view Mendocino home or a secluded Ukiah cabin amidst towering redwoods, there will be something perfect to suit your needs. For those travelling with children, vacation rentals offers the perfect relaxed lodging. Youngsters have room to play, teenagers will enjoy a second TV and internet access and in-laws will appreciate their own private space too. Calculate the cost of a vacation rental home per head and it adds up to a great deal.

Those enjoying outdoor pursuits will welcome the space to store all-weather gear and sports equipment. Return home to a long soak in the warm bath or outdoor hot tub. A home-cooked meal around the fire or outdoors on the porch makes the perfect end to a relaxing day out. Cost, comfort and convenience are the three Cs of a good vacation rental. Enjoy all the modern amenities and comforts of a luxury home-away-from-home as your base for exploring this delightful area.

Things to do From Your North California Coast Lodging

Choosing somewhere with plenty of attractions and things to do is key to avoiding bored children. North California has a host of attractions and unique things to do to suit the most difficult-to-please family! The Skunk Train is a great way to explore more than 40 miles of forest, rivers and natural scenery from Fort Bragg to Willits. These colorful steam or diesel locomotives have been running for over 125 years and offer trips lasting anything from four to seven hours in length. Those who enjoy architecture will want to visit the William Carson Mansion, one of the most photographed Victorian homes in the U.S. The Point Arena Lighthouse and Museum was rebuilt after the 1906 earthquake and can now be toured. Gourmet food-lovers will want to head for the Sonoma Cheese Factory, or go berry picking on the Country Farm Trails. Arts centers, water parks and botanical gardens are all within easy reach of your North California coast vacation rental. “I’m bored” is not something you are likely to hear on this trip!
