  • Very Relaxing!

    "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!"

  • Wonderful Christmas week stay

    "My wife and Irish setter and I are here for 4 months undertaking our annual gray whale research and census project. We drove from Maine and were in need of some Sea Ranch tranquility. We stayed for nearly a week while waiting for our longterm rental in Irish Beach. We had considered Breakaway in past visits to the Mendonoma Coast, but it was not available. The home is very comfortable an laid out in an interesting yet very functional and comfortable way. Peter, the owner had told me he had a Danish (I think I have that correct) architect. Well, the architect had great imagination. We loved it. Its the architecture that makes TSR so interesting and often adds to the beauty. We had Christmas here and my wife very easily cooked a 17 pound turkey and everything else in the kitchen It only looks small. Its very functional. (We had turkey the remainder of the stay as well.) We began our whale census while here and had easy walks down to the bluff to count gray whales as well as sea lions and harbor seals. We did not see whales from the upstairs bedroom, but could have. In the summer I am sure humpback whales can be seen from up top. We did not have any occassion to us the downstairs bedroom other than to check it out upon arrival, but it is very lovely and looks extremely comfortable. The same with the hot tub area. Pete was quick to address any issues and made suggestions. I had a glitch with VRBO, Peter called me from his home, and together we got us booked. Great touch. They have a fantastic sat tv package btw in a very comfortable tv room. I kind of lived in there reading and watching tv when we were not out in the field. There is a house close, as is often typical at TSR. The people seem to be full time residents and are extremely quiet. So don't let that deter you at all. We took terrific walks at night with Bob our dog. Many of the homes were decorated for Christmas and looked beautiful. I recommend their home highly. We just have a really warm memory of that week there."

  • Fabulous Family Reunion/Holiday Celebration Location

    "Our family had an amazing time celebrating Thanksgiving and a baby dedication at The Hidden Haven this year, and we are all looking forward to doing it again next year! :) We are already have our reservation! While several of us live in Humboldt County, we had about 15+ relatives joining us from out of the area, and we don't have the room in all of our homes to accommodate everyone. So, after researching our area, we found this little gem practically in our own back yard! Upon arrival, we were surprised to find that the owner had already taken time to decorate beautifully for the Thanksgiving holiday! Wow! That was an unexpected bonus, but much appreciated by everyone! Our guests who ranged in age from newborn to 85 years old were also delighted to have their own big, comfortable, quiet, beautiful bedroom, and almost everyone had their own private bathroom. The kitchen is huge and allowed for many cooks to prepare the meal together (which is often half the fun of these types of celebrations) and the kitchen literally had everything we could have wanted to celebrate our holiday together. Additionally, the house has many places for family/friends to gather for large or small visiting opportunities, and the younger generation (and a few adventuresome ones from the older one as well) thoroughly enjoyed the game room downstairs for hours on end. The main living area was large enough for us to have several tables lined up to accommodate 25+ people all seated together for an all family dining experience, and the following day we had about 35 present for a baby dedication in that same room with plenty of room for others to join us. From the moment we contacted the owners, they have been extremely accommodating and wonderful to work with. We were actually a bit taken aback by all of the positive comments from our entire family, including teenagers and young adults who said it was the best Thanksgiving they had ever had! We look forward to using this home again for this event, and maybe even some others! We highly recommend this property!"
