  • AMAZING!!!!

    "We stayed at this home for a week, and I wish it could have been longer. It was so beautiful and so comfortable. We felt right at home. When Lorie says that everything is there for you, she means it! The views are amazing. The area is great. And everyone is so friendly. Thank you Lorie!!! I'm so glad we extended our stay a couple more days."

  • 3 Blissful Days at Enchanted Meadows

    "My wife and I were looking for a last minute getaway before she starts a new school year. With only a couple weeks notice, Katrina was willing to accommodate us. We stayed at Katrina's Enchanted Meadows house Aug 1-3. We found the house sparkling clean, the property absolute gorgeous, and we could hear the ocean and some elephant seals in the far distance. On our way in, we stopped at Surf market and picked up a Tri-Tip for dinner. We sat out on the deck of the house, lit some candles, and watched the sun set through the marine layer. So surreal and serene. After that, we spent some time in the hot tub, looking up at the Milky Way whenever the clouds broke. I cannot begin to describe the feelings of peace, calm, and serenity that overtook our stressed out minds and bodies. Saturday we took an adventure into Anchor Bay, and Point Arena (we highly recommend stopping at "Everything Under the Sun" in Point Arena. The items for sale are very unique, but not nearly as unique as the shop owner!!). The Mrs. froze her toes in the ocean, much to her joy, and we headed back to Enchanted Meadows for another candlelight dinner on the deck. Saturday night was just as blissful, and we even had a deer stroll up the driveway while we soaked in the tub. The only bad part about the trip was having to leave on Sunday. We did not want to go. Bottom-line on this house: if you're looking for a reasonable price, peaceful relaxation, beautiful environment, and groovy nearby amenities, look no further than Katrina's Enchanted Meadow. Katrina is great to deal with. The ONLY recommendation we have for future guests is to bring a bag of ice. The refrigerator is off when you arrive, and if you want a cold cocktail upon your arrival, bring the ice or wait an hour for the freezer to do its job. Katrina, we hope to see your beautiful home again soon!!"

  • Perfect vacation

    "This was our second stay at Adagio and as perfect as the last. The house is so lovely and comfortable! Ocean views and the forest too. We especially appreciate how quiet and private it is, yet not far from the recreation center -- pool, spa and tennis courts. We came with family and friends, ate at Trinks (also recommended) in Gualala about 5 minutes north but cooked in most meals. The kitchen has everything. I hiked the bluff trail each morning. This stretch of coastline is the most beautiful of all. Will definitely be returning next summer."

North Coast Travel Tips

The Beauty of North California Coast Vacation Rentals

The Northern California coastline is famous for its beautiful beaches, historic lighthouses and miles of hiking trails through the giant redwood trees in the national state parks. The area is a paradise for nature-lovers who can anticipate seeing herds of elk or migrating whales, depending upon the season. With quiet sandy beaches offering strolls along the water’s edge, museums, wineries and quaint little towns, the spectacular coastline is what keeps visitors returning time and time again to recharge their batteries and de-stress from their busy lives. A luxury vacation home or log cabin offers the perfect retreat.

The Many Benefits of North California Coast Vacation Rentals

For those looking for an away-from-it-all vacation in the midst of beautiful natural surroundings, a vacation rental is the perfect place to stay. Whether you want an ocean view Mendocino home or a secluded Ukiah cabin amidst towering redwoods, there will be something perfect to suit your needs. For those travelling with children, vacation rentals offers the perfect relaxed lodging. Youngsters have room to play, teenagers will enjoy a second TV and internet access and in-laws will appreciate their own private space too. Calculate the cost of a vacation rental home per head and it adds up to a great deal.

Those enjoying outdoor pursuits will welcome the space to store all-weather gear and sports equipment. Return home to a long soak in the warm bath or outdoor hot tub. A home-cooked meal around the fire or outdoors on the porch makes the perfect end to a relaxing day out. Cost, comfort and convenience are the three Cs of a good vacation rental. Enjoy all the modern amenities and comforts of a luxury home-away-from-home as your base for exploring this delightful area.

Things to do From Your North California Coast Lodging

Choosing somewhere with plenty of attractions and things to do is key to avoiding bored children. North California has a host of attractions and unique things to do to suit the most difficult-to-please family!

These colorful steam or diesel locomotives have been running for over 125 years and offer trips lasting anything from four to seven hours in length. Those who enjoy architecture will want to visit the William Carson Mansion, one of the most photographed Victorian homes in the U.S. The Point Arena Lighthouse and Museum was rebuilt after the 1906 earthquake and can now be toured. Gourmet food-lovers will want to head for the Sonoma Cheese Factory, or go berry picking on the Country Farm Trails. Arts centers, water parks and botanical gardens are all within easy reach of your North California coast vacation rental. “I’m bored” is not something you are likely to hear on this trip!
