  • Wedding weekend

    "This property is exactly what you see in the photos. It's very clean and well kept. Quiet, peaceful and a beautiful view. We had 5 adults and 2 children for a weekend wedding at Pt. Cabrillo Lighthouse. It was close by everything, ie: reception in Caspar and activities in Mendocino village. The two couples, plus a single had their own room and the children loved sleeping on their own futons in the game room downstairs. The owners are very nice people to work with, very professional. The Wednesday before our arrival there was a big catastrophe, the water heater and furnace going out meaning no hot water and no heat. The owners tried finding us another place to stay in Mendocino Village, but was everything was booked (3 weddings that weekend) and another house for us to look at online in Ft. Bragg. They offered us a 50% discount to stay if we wanted to. After looking up the house in Ft. Bragg, it was not close to Blue Heron quality, we opted to stay without hot water. We survived and glad we did, it's a beautiful home and you'll love staying there."

  • The raiting was a 5, but couldn't seem to get the start to go wherer I wanted them to

    "The house was perfect for our needs, comfortable and well stocked with pot, pans, knives, silverware, dishwasher, toaster and charcoal BBQ. We had to purchase more paper towels and TP but that was to be expected."

  • Magical vacation stay in the Redwoods

    "You sometimes wonder if the details you are planning for your vacation will be true to the brochure or website info. This darling chateau is everything the website says and more. What a gorgeous place! It was very comfortable, quiet and peaceful, and very accommodating. We chose this place for its central location to all the places we wanted to see in Redwoods country & we highly recommend the following: Fern Canyon & Gold Bluffs Beach (saw some Roosevelt Elk, a whale and sea lions!), Agate Beach, Humboldt Bay & Samoa Dunes, Avenue of Giants, Ferndale historic Victorian homes & various farmer's roadside stands with outstanding fresh produce! We also enjoyed delicious food at Mazzotti's Italian restaurant in Arcata! All of the activities and attractions we visited were incredible as well! This country is unsurpassed in beauty! Jennifer is a fantastic hostess and her hospitality and kindness are unmatched! We found everything we needed for cooking our own meals, towels for the bathroom and very comfortable beds after long days of exploring. Everything was clean and well-maintained, the website's photos were exactly what we got, & then some! We roasted hotdogs outside one night, breakfast was so refreshing while enjoying the orchard, the kids loved the ping pong table and exploring the property! Jennifer's directions were clear and easy to follow, we drove right to it! We loved the scenery and Redwoods on the property and hated to leave such a charming place. We enjoyed visiting with Jennifer immensely! There is so much to see and do along the North Coast, if we ever get the chance to come again (we hope!) we will be staying here again. This place is off the charts in perfection! Our vacation was so much more than we expected! THANK YOU Jennifer!!!"

  • We love this place!

    "Rating Details: I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We have rented this home twice now and would definitely come back again. Price is affordable and the location is great and the house is nice. We love it here. Two things need improving. The pots and pans need to be replaced. They are really worn and dirty feeling and I had to scrub them before even using them. Also your knives don't really cut. When we rent again I would need to bring my own cooking pots and pans and knives if these don't get replaced. The new TV set up is great! Manager responded on 10/15/2014: Hi Jane, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us some valuable feedback. We will pass along your suggestions and see about getting new pots and pans for the lovely Nebenzahl home. See ya on the next trip. Happy Days, Kim"

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!
