A jewel retreat in Mendocinto near headlands, shops & restaurants...
"Jade's Tower is by far the most lovingly created and maintained retreat for a relaxing getaway in Mendocino that we have ever experienced. It was artfully designed and is lovingly taken care of. It is extremely comfortable and esthetically delightful. Even in early November, the garden had blooms. The grounds are beautiful and the caretakers living on the property are helpful but never intrusive. The sofa is comfy. The bed and bedding even comfier. The instructions for streaming and dvd watching are easy and the system works well with great sound. The small kitchen is perfect for breakfast making. And the plates and glasses and pots are all beautifully displayed as well as functional. There is a small private deck to enjoy just outside the kitchen. And the location is perfect for walks along the nearby headlands and for accessing the local restaurants and shops. A perfect town location, which feels very private.
There are only 2 issues that might be problematic for some folks. The one bathroom (which itself has gorgeous stained glass windows and beautiful tile), is downstairs. And the bedroom loft is above, up a rather steep, but very sturdy metal spiral staircase. The other issue is that all of the large windows are odd shapes, designed to fit the water tower shape of the building. The downstairs windows in the main living space are shadeless, and the largest one, faces west. Even in early November, the sun streams in filling the room. So unless you like indoor sun bathing, you'll find yourself dodging the sun. I imagine that it is way more difficult to do so in the summer months when the place must get very very warm. There is a ceiling fan in the main living space and in the loft bedroom, but I don't know how effective the fans would be in the face of unrelenting summer sun. The sleeping loft windows have shades, as well as a stellar view of the ocean, so sunlight is not an issue upstairs.
The owner was helpful when we requested to arrive a bit early, and always responsive. We would most definitely stay here again at the right time of year."

Perfect for groups, very clean and comfortable, ton of bed space
"I stayed here for a weekend with a group of friends - 11 of us total. The house exceeded our expectations - spacious, clean, beautiful hardwood floors, very comfortable, and best of all - SO MANY beds! No one had to sleep on the couch. The kitchen/dining/living room area are a nice big, open space very conducive to socializing. The kitchen is very modern and has everything you'd ever need. And the hosts Susan and Jon were very communicative. I highly recommend this rental!"

The Whalesong home was perfect for a long overdue reunion with my brother and sister-in-law. We were right at home right away. We loved everything from the accommodations to the location. Only wished we could have stayed longer."
