  • Beautiful Home

    "We had a wonderful time at the Pacific Heights. It was perfect for our Oregon contingent traveling down to see old friends from Humboldt. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a very comfortable space, especially the living room and outdoor deck with wonderful ocean views overlooking the bay. There is also a path down to the beach which we used. The house was clean and well maintained. We would definitely rent this place again."

  • Hated to leave!

    "My husband and I stayed for 4 nights and were surprised by how much we loved this place. It would have been easy to stay for a whole week. The views were amazing, exactly as pictured and the house had everything that we needed. We were so sad to go, almost cried when having to leave! I was worried from the photos that the house being older would make me feel less comfortable in it. It did not. While it could use some updates, I would take the lower price that the owner offers vs having updates made and the price increased. It was great for a couple to stay in. If I had to stay in one of the two bedrooms downstairs I probably would not have appreciated it as much as I did staying in the loft because of the view from up there. While we were staying there was an issue with the hot tub that we were notified about upon arrival and the owner kept in close contact with us until it was fixed and worked with us to make us satisfied with the situation. Very pleasant to work with! Things we appreciated: The view!!!! The stereo in the sunroom The DVR - we set several things to record so we could watch on our own schedule. The cleanliness of the house The big shower in the bathroom downstairs! The view from the loft bedroom - and the fact that there is a 1/2 bath upstairs The very soft towels and sheets Improvement item: The mattress in the loft. The only item that I would say would really improve our stay was if the mattress in the loft were softer. It is very hard, I would equate it to laying on a carpeted floor. It would really make for a much more comfortable stay if either a foam mattress topper or a pillow top mattress were added to the house. I would love to come and rent this place for a month and stay and enjoy the area even more. Was an easy drive to everywhere we wanted to go and loved coming home to this place at night!"

  • we love ocean's window

    "Romantic, private, quiet, relaxing cabin! My short vacation with my boyfriend was spent camping two days, then here two days. We had a trip of many beautiful memories, thanks to ocean's window and the accommodating people that came with it. The cabin is cutely decorated, feels like a family's house. Very tidy and organized. We hope to come back many times in the future. PS go to bowling ball beach nearby! Its a hike but so worth it."

  • Lovely place

    "Had a fantastic weekend here with friends. There's a nice charcoal grill and the hot tub, while compact, was lovely to have. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the things you would need to cook an elaborate meal and the cabin is quite cozy. The pullout couch isn't the most luxurious, but it's doable for a couple of nights. Gualala is beautiful and you're a short drive from some great scenery and ocean views."

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.
