"The Stringbender Cottage is very cute, cozy and relaxing. We wish we could of stayed longer. Everything was perfect. Star and Gene provide lots of books, CDs and DVDs to enjoy during your stay. An absolutely beautiful bouquet of flowers was on the dining table. A few things to point out. The cottage has no cellular service but that is a good thing! There is a very strong wireless which allows for texting or using the Internet if necessary. Also no shoes allowed inside, which is normal for us in our home, but some people may find it out of the norm. Usually we stay in the town of Mendocino but this time decided to stay five minutes outside and it was awesome. Also Star was very flexible with us when we had a last minute change in plans! Thanks so much for the great visit and we would love to come back again."

"Four of us (err, five including my dog) just stayed at this lovely cottage in Mendocino. Two adults stayed in the loft space of the kitchen cottage and two stayed in the main bedroom/bathroom cottage. Both spaces were clean and as adorable as they appear in the photos.
The cottage is in a great location providing easy access to town, ocean views, and sunsets. That said, you still feel tucked away in a private location with a hot tub and an outdoor shower. There are lots of beautiful plants and gardens -- it basically looks like a hobbit would live there.
The owner was very nice, clear, and easy to deal with when making my reservation. I have no complaints and encourage anyone looking for a nice, relaxing spot in a gem of a small coastal town to consider staying here."

"the house was perfect! It was very cozy and spacious. the hot tub has a wonderful view of the sunset every evening over the ocean. it was very clean and there were plenty of extra towels and cooking supplies, etc. We had a wonderful little bottle of local and very amazing wine waiting for us. the only thing that could of made it better was the ability to hear the waves from the house and the wifi connection was very weak as expected for that area. but the amount of space is incredible, with no close neighbors."

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Aside from having to kill a few spiders in the beds and bedrooms we had a wonderful time. This home and it's location is absolutely our favorite place to go when staying at the coast. We will always prefer Whalesong as our #1 Choice of Stay!"
