  • Beautifully relaxing

    "As my cancer treatment progressed in late summer and early fall, I realized that I wanted something beautiful to look forward to. My husband and I love Mendocino and selected Sea Garden for its setting, which looked like the perfect spot for some serious R&R after treatment. We couldn't have been more right. Sea Garden is a lovely home in a remarkable setting, offering ocean views, birds galore, deer, the perfect kitchen, solitude, and of course the garden, which was beautiful even in November. Our five-night stay was all we had hoped for. Nearby restaurants are excellent and the Mendocino Botanical Garden in Fort Bragg is not to be missed. My treatment completion date kept changing, effecting our visit dates. But the owner was wonderfully cooperative and easy to work with. We will be back! Can't wait!"

  • Beautiful home

    "We (my mom (senior) and my two kids (age 10 & 11)) had the best time. The home was immaculate and had a gorgeous kitchen to cook in. It's perfect for a family of 4. Very close to Glass Beach which we visited daily. Found the home centrally located to many of the places we visited. If I have to have a negative it was the no screens on the windows which made it not easy for us to have the windows open. (bugs would fly in) But that is truly the only thing I have to say. Owners easy to work with, very accommodating, easy to get a hold of if I had questions. LOVED IT!!!!"

  • Spectacular views

    "The girls needed a coast break and this was the perfect spot to watch the waves, sunsets and sunrises. All but one room has a wonderful ocean view and it is minutes from town should you need a break or walk on the beach. Several will be booking family weeks they loved it so much."

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! The Skunk Train is a great way to explore more than 40 miles of forest, rivers and natural scenery from Fort Bragg to Willits. 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!
