"We have been doing a multigenerational family vacation at Fort Bragg for about 20 years and stay in different houses. This was our 2nd time at Chateau Cleone. It was perfect. Tim and Kathy are easy to work with and everything was ready when we arrived. The house was very clean and comfortable for all of us. We enjoyed it's beauty and being so close to the ocean and exploring. The kitchen was well stocked and the barbecue was clean and waiting for us. The downstairs bathroom has a large walk in shower and a higher toilet. I especially love the cheerfulness of the yellow room. There were games provided and interesting books to read. The hot tub was heavenly among the redwood trees. We had lunch at the Mayan Infusion restaurant in Noyo Harbor. Yum! Right now our ages range from 6-75. The stairs were do-able for all of us. Each year we vote on where to go. Everyone voted on the Chateau Cleone for next year."

Stay Here With Dear Friends, Bring Great Food & Wine, You Will Have A Time You Love to Remember.
"We were invited to a 50th birthday celebration at this house, we loved the place so much we rented it for five days for a 40th birthday celebration two months later. One of the people who came with us on the second trip told her father about it and he is going to rent it. We were lucky to see the house in two different temperatures. One, hot, wearing shorts and t-shirts with all the windows open and the other time it was cool and we had the fire place going, both times were simply magnificent in their own way. We are definitely going back. The view is amazing! Sitting, watching the sunset on the couch, by the fire, or out on the deck. (writing this makes me want to go back there right now) Having the fully stocked kitchen was perfect. We cooked all our meals at the house. We love the private beach access. The drift wood sculptures are very creative and the beach is just beautiful. The hot tub was the best at night with the stars and the sound of the crashing waves. Bonnie is a pleasure to work with. Everything was as she said it would be. I really like her attention to detail, It helps make for a stress free trip. I love, love, love, this place and can't wait to go back!"

"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."

"This is a lovely cottage. Surely this is what a French or English countryside cottage must be like. It is well kept, charmingly decorated, and peacefully romantic. It is very close to the village of Mendocino (minutes away) and not too far from Ft. Bragg should you require anything from stores like Safeway or CVS. The California coast is spectacular and state beaches are nearby. There are also numerous wineries within a short driving distance. If you are planning a trip to the area, I would recommend this cottage as your home base. Although I would consider the cottage as a destination in itself. We sat out in the garden with wine and cheese one afternoon. In the wee hours of the morning we went out to view the lunar eclipse and enjoyed the sound of the ocean in the still of the pre dawn hours. We played guitar by the fire in the evening and grilled steaks for a quiet dinner. Lastly, the added bonus is Mary. She is simply a gem--charming and hospitable. She adds little touches that are considerate and demonstrate her hospitality. Thank you for sharing this spot with us."
