Recent North Coast reviews

  • A fantastic find!!

    "This is my first review although we have rented several VRBO properties; this rental beats them all for a large get together. We were a family of eleven from 9 months to 90! The house was great in every way! Pictures don't do the house justice. Open floor plan, with absolutely beautiful views in every direction; bright and airy. Well away from neighboring houses. Clean and well equipped. Large floor to ceiling windows in the living room area. Plenty of room to spread out. Great bedroom space. Fantastic amazingly stocked kitchen with all equipment needed for our 'foodie' family. Well stocked with linens/towels and a large washer/dryer. Huge screen tv with supplied 3D glasses/movies/games for night time entertainment. Very friendly owners who made rental easy. Thanks."

  • BREATH TAKING!!

    "Stayed at this beautiful house over a year ago. When you first walk in, you will see the most amazing view in the house. It is truly unreal! Wait until you see the sunset! The views from the master bedroom is unbelievable as well. We felt like we were on a different part of the world. The house is well equipped and nicely decorated. We used the hot tub for the 3 nights we stayed here. I do suggest installing some blinds for the front windows because we did saw a red car parked uphill peeking into the house. Which I did not like!! Only a 5 min drive to the nearest grocery store. This was a great vacation! Thanks to the owner for their beautiful home! I really want to come back!!"

  • Great location among the redwoods yet close to the ocean

    "We had a wonderful stay and are already looking forward to returning. The cabin is very comfortable with all the modern conveniences plus a well stocked kitchen. It was a real treat to soak in the hot tub while looking at huge redwoods. Nights are very quiet. If you are a walker, the cabin is about one mile from town. There was mention of the sky light in the bedroom - not a problem as far as we were concerned. We would even get cell coverage - one or two bars which is more than we got at other places in Gualala. Overall, two thumbs up from these happy travelers."

  • Independence Day weekend

    "We loved this property. We went over for the long 4th of July weekend and had a fantastic time. The photos are perfectly indicative of what you get when you stay in this home. The house is centrally located and easy to walk to everything. We can't comment on the restaurants, as we did not go out to eat the whole time. I read a poor review just a couple of weeks before we went. I was a little nervous to see what was going to happen. When we arrived I was very happy with what we saw. I won't speculate as to the circumstances that Bill references in his review, but I will say that if his review was accurate, the issues he cites have been addressed and rectified (with the exception of the leaking drain from the deck into the garage. This however, was no real problem as we did not even know it was an issue until the last day as we were cleaning up and noticed it on our final walk-through). Bill also mentions that the home is for sale. I'm not sure why this is listed as a downside. It did indeed have a for sale sign in the yard, but so what. We have two young children and found that the stairs were no problem for them. There really are not that many stairs to deal with. We give the property five stars and would love to stay there again. It seems unlikely that we will be able to because our schedules are very tight and don't allow us to go the coast as much as we would like, but we would jump at the chance to stay there again."

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!
