  • GMAN

    "Great place to have a family reunion. Tough for the elderly to get to the dock but a great view from the main deck. Good dock was in good condition and had room for our boat an kayak. Comfortable for sleeping 10 in the main house. Seemed to have enough hot water for showering all of us. Not much room for turning cars around and DO NOT tow your boat to the house. Had unhook it and turn by hand with help from a couple who happen to drive down the driveway. First cast from the dock resulted in a 4 lb bass."

  • Perfect!

    "My best friend (of nearly 50 years) and I just stayed in your rental cottage last week-end. It was absolutely perfect. We didn't really want to do the tourist thing, so we only went in to dinner one night. It was foggy, so no sunset pictures, but that is what we wanted. It was so hot at home (over 100 degrees) and forest fires everywhere. What a welcome relief if only for a few days. Everything was as you described it. You were so very helpful and gracious. Thank you again, and we will be back."

  • Peaceful and perfect for us!

    "We arrived just before it began raining for two days. We got to watch the river go through the changes of rising and muddy to blue/green and perfect for fishing right from the living room window of this cozy log cabin in the woods. The owners were nearby to answer any questions we might have had, but greeted us upon arrival and filled us in on the simple workings of things. Having plentiful wood for the stove as well as Monitor heat to take the chill off while the fire takes off made it a cozy place to weather the storm and enjoy relaxing for the remainder of the week. The kitchen was well-stocked with all the pots, pans, dishes, cutlery, glassware and even a dishwasher to make clean up a breeze. Lots of books, puzzles, playing cards, pads to keep score gave us much to do while we waited out the storm. We will definitely be booking this pet-friendly place again. Bill, Renay and their dog, Sasha were wonderful hosts."

  • Girls weekend!

    "Amazing views from all windows! We were lucky and had beautiful sunny days that enhanced the views. We even saw a few whales from the living room windows! This is more of a rustic rental as described, but the location on the point is breathtaking. Appliances are older & not all burners on the stove worked, but 2 were enough for our purposes. Would be nice to have shower curtains instead of old hard plastic folding doors. Plenty of firewood for the nice large stone fireplace made for cozy evenings. Great get-away!"

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.
