  • An excellent vaction spot directly on Clear Lake

    "Celebrated a 35th birthday here with a small group of friends and a couple of dogs. The sunset view, beautiful warm water, dockside fishing, and cozy home was exactly what we expected and more! This is a fantastic spot to go for any occasion. Easy to get to, fun places to see from Nice to Lucerne, and overall just an excellent place to relax and have some lake fun. I'd recommend it to anyone. Thanks Julee!"

  • Many Rooms with a View

    "We were looking for a special place to celebrate one of those significant birthdays for my husband as well as a 20-something one for our son. As we are a bicoastal family, our time together is very special. This wonderful property was just what we were looking for. The views are really spectacular with the gentle rhythm of the waves serving as the soundtrack. Plenty of space, a lovely fireplace (ready to be lit), comfortable beds-- all is done with such attention to detail. Information is clearly provided making the stay effortless. The kids loved the hot tub, the grill was put to good use-- I could go on and on. We really enjoyed the location-- close enough to Mendocino, but just far enough away for some additional peace and quiet. If you do want to venture out for a meal, Queenie's which is just up the road serves fantastic breakfasts."

  • Magical spot, charming rental could use a few upgrades

    "This spot was magical because it was on a lovely piece of landscaped property, down a private road, with gorgeous walking path through Dunes State Preserve, to the almost deserted beach. Dunes are magical, but 30 minute walk to beach in sand, so be prepared for that. Cottage was super cute beach-themed, but would recommend new shower, new bedding. Great propane fireplace, but no instructions, had to fiddle with it to make it work. Be aware, no stove, freezer or dishwasher. 10 minutes drive north of Ft. Bragg in Inglenook. Would go again for the access to the dunes and beach, and loveliness of property was exceptional. Cottage wasn't perfect, but great for the price. We brought our dogs, who loved romping in the dunes, (but technically, they weren't allowed in the Dune state preserve!, we got away with it...)"

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!
