Recent North Coast reviews

  • Comfortable, Peaceful, and So Relaxing!!!

    "We LOVED this house!! Everything about it says, “Welcome. Make yourself at home.” In fact, I think the pictures and the website actually undersell it a bit. We are a family of 10 including five children ages 8 and under. They spent a lot of time outside (yes, by choice) playing in the enclosed yard/play area, which is one of the features that was better than the posted picture led us to anticipate. We loved the way the living room was laid out because everyone could choose their view; after all, not everyone goes to the ocean to watch television. :) All of the living room seating was quite comfortable and all the throws that covered them were quilts, which added a level of coziness that also exceeded our expectations. In fact, many of the bedcovers are also quilts. The house is stocked with plenty of comfortable bedding, so there’s really no need to bring extra. One of the other pleasant surprises was the “sleeping porch.” It’s basically another room where the only single adult of the bunch slept (yes, also by choice). It has a twin-size day bed that was quite comfortable. The best thing about it was being able to open the window at the head of the bed and fall asleep to the sound and smell of the ocean. The kitchen is well stocked with all the cookware and dishes a family should need. I read a review that focused on the small kitchen, and it is small, but it has everything we needed, including a full sized refrigerator. And there may not be a lot of unused cupboard space either, but there were 10 of us and it posed no problem at all. We brought a big ice chest for drinks and kept it on the covered porch right outside the kitchen door. And there’s room in the laundry area just off the kitchen where we kept a big shopping bag or two with our pantry type items. In addition, there ARE two grocery stores literally down the street, so it’s not like one really has to bring everything they may possibly want to consume during their stay. Based on our very pleasant experience, we feel that giving this home a 2-star rating was just mean. We’re so looking forward to our next stay."

  • Comfortable, convenient and dog friendly!

    "This home really met our family's needs - a bedroom on the first floor for my mother and a dog-friendly home for us. The location is close to many wonderful places - Mendocino, Elk, Fort Bragg - where we could walk our dogs and enjoy the ocean. Everyone commented how comfortable their beds were, and we (on the second floor) appreciated the large bathroom! Thank you for opening your home to us."

  • Great Family Retreat

    "Our family of five was really happy here for 2 nights. The outdoor swing and fire-pit were a great addition to help entertain the kids. Quiet, private location perfect for a break from our city-life. LOVED having a washer and dryer available for use. Managers were very helpful with a couple of questions we had. Also loved finding a home that does not allow pets, as we all have pet allergies. A non-smoking home was also a big plus."

  • Wishing we could stay forever!

    "Cannot possibly do this home justice in a few words! Clean, comfortable, quiet, roomy, reasonable. If I could buy this house, and move here closer to my grand kids (oh yeah, kids too), I certainly would! Have visited Crescent City many times, this trip was awesome, in part because of this rental, and working with Mary. Would not hesitate to do business with Mary again! Did I mention: clean AND reasonable? Two of my favorite adjectives. Wow! Great experience.!"

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!
