  • Perfect place to see the redwoods

    "Beautiful, well maintained house in a spectacular setting. Our family of 3 generations stopped here on an extensive tour of the west coast. We were happy to see the personalized welcome sign in the driveway after an all-day drive. We found the house to be very clean and the owner was right next door to answer questions. We did all our "redwood spotting" from the house as a base for a couple of days before continuing on south. We would highly recommend this house and stay there again if we return to the area."

  • An excellent vaction spot directly on Clear Lake

    "Celebrated a 35th birthday here with a small group of friends and a couple of dogs. The sunset view, beautiful warm water, dockside fishing, and cozy home was exactly what we expected and more! This is a fantastic spot to go for any occasion. Easy to get to, fun places to see from Nice to Lucerne, and overall just an excellent place to relax and have some lake fun. I'd recommend it to anyone. Thanks Julee!"

  • Quiet Redwood Retreat

    "Was quite happy with our experience. The house was nice-loved the kitchen and it's layout. The grounds were done nicely and loved the use of natural elements to make up planter boxes, paths and seating areas. Some things were a challenge-like trying to light a fire in the wood burning stove to heat the place-it had rained and the wood was wet. Once started it did warm the place up nicely. The water heater was tricky as well-not sure if it is on a timer or what, but we had to fire it up for hot water and then it seemed to stop on it's own after a day or two. It was quiet and very nice to just hang out at the house and enjoy the outdoors. There were six people and three dogs in our group. We all enjoyed ourselves-especially the dogs...they had a great time romping around the property. A few people in our group had wifi/internet withdrawls and only the people who had Verizon were able to have cell service. All in all it was a wonderful weekend-loved the area, loved the acreage-the house was a good size for all of us. Will definitely look into staying here again."

  • Sand Dune Serenity

    "We are very familiar with the Fort Bragg and Mendicino area as we have been vacationing there since 1978. This property is by far the best equipped and appointed that we have stayed at. Practically everything was brand new. Totally private at the end of a private lane, 1/2 mile walk thru the dunes to the beach. Completely quite, slept with the windows open every night. Lots of deer wandering around eating the apples on the property. Exactly 7 miles north from the Train Station, downtown Fort Bragg. Only 2 miles drive north to Ten Mile where you can park on the road right at the beach. Our 2 dogs thought this was their vacation! Will stay again next year. It's always great to walk into a property and go WOW! This is way, way better than the pictures show. If you like solitude among the big trees, yet want to be within easy driving distance to town, this is the ticket."

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.
