"Celebrated a 35th birthday here with a small group of friends and a couple of dogs. The sunset view, beautiful warm water, dockside fishing, and cozy home was exactly what we expected and more! This is a fantastic spot to go for any occasion. Easy to get to, fun places to see from Nice to Lucerne, and overall just an excellent place to relax and have some lake fun. I'd recommend it to anyone. Thanks Julee!"

"Our 4-night stay in mid November involved 5 adults. Prior reviewers have noted the fine views, spacious dining and sitting areas, excellent master suite, etc. But this rental has some negative aspects: the second upstairs bedroom/bathroom is not en-suite, the down bedroom is rather small with a bathroom door that would not close, a shower head that leaked and a poorly-sliding screen door. This bedroom has a gas heater that was not operative during our stay (although needed). There was only one operative hair dryer in the house. Carpet and area rugs in the house are well-used and not clean. Kitchen utensils and glasses are sparse and all glasses required washing prior to use. Although of no impact to renters, the home exterior is somewhat shabby--paint is peeling and exterior shingles missing. These negatives detract from the lovely setting and views available from the house."

"Stayed at the St. Clair house for 2 nights for our 8 year wedding anniversary. It was very relaxing to say the least! Great views of the beach, a hot tub overlooking the garden and the ocean and all amenities that you can think of. Some helpful tips: The walk down to the beach is not as easy as you would think. It is steep and the climb back up the hill is treacherous (at least for out of shape people like us) ;-) We definitely recommend taking the car. Also, bring non stick pans if you plan on cooking anything that may require it as we couldn't seem to locate any- although there is just about everything else you can imagine to cook with. While the vacation we took was just for us two for our anniversary, we have small children (Under 6) and could imagine that if we took them to the vacation home, it may be challenging due to a lot of breakables in the home (accidents happen) so I am not sure that we would recommend bringing really little ones however when ours get older, it seems like it would be fun. One more tip: we did not get any phone reception at all- so if you need to call home to check on your kids like we did, invest in a $5 calling card because the phones are only for local use in the home. This place was so beautiful- we highly recommend to any one wanting a nice visit to Mendocino County in a nice cozy environment. The drive to Mendocino is only about 30 minutes and the drive to Point Arena is only about 10. Donna was absolutely accommodating in every way and the process was very simple. It was our first vacation rental on VRBO so we were unsure how it all worked but she made it much more comfortable. Cant wait to come back again!"

"My partner and I had an absolutely wonderful 5 day R & R get=away at this very special hideaway. We so loved the privacy, the quiet, the trees and fresh air, the distant ocean view, and the faint barking of the sea lions and seals that wafted in over the airwaves from time to time. The grounds are magical, the fireplace is big and heartwarming, the hot tub is a dream, and all amenities, appliances, and conveniences are well-appointed and in good shape. We loved cooking in the big kitchen. The owner is warm and friendly and very helpful. We heartily recommend this rental. You won't be sorry !"
