I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was very clean.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
This house is tidy and nicely furnished in kitschy lighthouse motif and beach style. Very nice hot tub on the deck. Dog enjoyed watching 'doggie tv' out the french doors (deer and woldlife). Sorry about the nose prints on the glass. Easy drive or walk to the beach and convenient for Point Arena, Mendo, etc.

"My husband and I stayed hear because we need an ocean fix once in awhile. We live in the high desert but, we love the ocean. The cottage had awesome veiws of the ocean. It was very clean and quite and relaxing. My husband enjoyed the walks down to the beach cove. We also appreciate the information Ginny gave us for where to eat and things to do within driving distance. We will probably stay here again sometime in the future."

"My family of 4 spent three great evenings at this property. It was very clean, comfortable, but most impressively - filled with beautiful artwork. Every wall and shelf had the most interesting pieces on display. Every night we were finding new stuff. My kids loved it.
The Casper / Mendocino area was stunning. There were tons of outdoor spots to check out, all within a 10 - 15 minute drive. This is a great area for outdoorsy families like ours.
The property owner / manager lives in an adjacent house. At first, this concerned me as we like to be on our own. It turned out fine. I think we saw them twice through our three day stay, but if we needed anything, they were right there.
We've rented lots of houses. This one was truly 5 stars."

"Virginia, Winnie, and Andy:
Anything I would say would just echo the wonderful things that previous guests have already said. We have sent pictures to family and friends. At least one couple plans on staying there in the future. We also plan on returning to the "Tower". For your information. there was a power outage during our stay. We were at dinner when it occurred, but noticed one of the clocks blinking on and off upon our return. No big deal. However the net effect was that we were unable to access the internet, netflixs, etc. I reset the control box (I think) and it returned. However netflix was unstable and would not play a show completely. It was very windy at the time, and I was wondering if there was a problem with the service. I don't know if there is a proper procedure to deal with this situation.
Once again, thank you for the use of your beautiful home.
Dave and Jeryl"
