  • Best place for a Rustic Wedding!

    "We recently rented the entire property including the main house, loft and large wedding barn for our August Wedding. It was such an amazing experience, if you are looking for a rustic wedding venue I recommend this place hands down. You get the whole property for three days for a flat fee (NO additional charges are tacked on later) which means you can have your wedding party or families stay on the property and make it an entire weekend getaway. Regardless if you are renting the property for a wedding or a family reunion, the place is amazing. Its large living room provides a good place to congregate and relax. There is definitely something majestic the area. Remember though, this is an older Victorian home packed with history, you are not going to a Vegas Hotel, its rustic, thats the whole point of coming here and to Mendocino in general. We thought it was tranquil during our stay and then on Saturday, the perfect place for a big wedding party!"

  • Stunning cliff top home

    "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 stayed with children and grandchildren and there was never a shortage of things to do. The stunning, brilliantly equipped kitchen, was a pleasure for Thanksgiving and the walks both up the hill and along the beach were incredible. This home is the perfect spot for sunset watching. The rental agency responded to our one tiny problem and despite the soft beds, we slept deeply. The sofa bed in the living room is rather old and has a wafer thin mattress. We pulled it off and put it on the floor. The one snag - Internet speed barely permits reading emails and loads too slowly for those of us who need to work. This needs improvement. Manager responded on 12/1/2014: Hi Anne-Marie, Thank you for choosing to spend your Thanksgiving here at Irish Beach and taking the time to leave a wonderful comment :) I will be sure to pass along your comments and concerns to the owner. hope to see you back here soon! Cheers, Maia Manager responded on 12/1/2014: Good Morning Anne-Marie, Thank you so very much for taking the time to review the lovely Bellagio home. We always appreciate Renter feedback. I will let the home owner know about the sofa bed. Unfortunately, in our geographically challenged locale the internet is quite scarce with only a few homes at Irish Beach even having Wi-Fi. However, good news is that a new company is in the Beta test stages for implementing new Wi-Fi on the South Coast. Fingers crossed. Happy Monday and hope to see you in the future. Kim"

  • Vanity Fair Cover/Casa Zacha

    "As a returnee, once again, we find this a place of infinite charms, magical views, and resplendent with peace, tranquility, and rejuvenatory powers. We feel the spirits of Bill and Jennie always in residence and welcome their sage guidance on all things Mendocino. The highest praise for Annie, Lucia, and the joys of Zacha House until the next time we return."

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.

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!
