  • Well appointed cottage!

    "We loved Trinidad and the retro cottage! Fabulous retro furnishings! Spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, good shower, great fireplace! Perfect location, even with the road construction. We could walk to everything! My only input is that the coffee maker is way too small for a house that can sleep 8. Fortunately, the Beachcomber Cafe opens early and has great coffee! Bring your coffee travel mug, as they don't have paper cups. We would definitely stay at the Retro Retreat again. A dark colored towel to wipe the dogs feet before coming in the house would be a great item to add to the house. Thanks!"

  • Comfortable, cozy, and absolutely perfect!!!

    "Our family feels very blessed to have had the opportunity to stay in this cozy home. We were greeted at the door by Ruthann and John, and both of them created an environment in which my husband and I and our two children felt very welcomed and at home. Though some might be hesitant to stay at a place so close to the owners, we found it charming and actually felt a bit like we were staying with family. John and Ruthann provide great tips for sight-seeing, great food (ohmygosh, GREAT food), and are so hospitable. The kids LOVED the fresh-picked peaches and watching the juice drip down their arms was something to smile at! :) Our room had roses from the garden and John shared with us that we were welcome to the books, brought out a pool for our son (which we ended up not using because the river was warm and perfect for playing in!), and encouraged us to use their canoe if we were interested. They also offered to share spices and food items that we might need, rather than purchasing it from the store. Beside the amazing hospitality shown to us, the area is RICH with activity! We were a short drive to the Trees of Mystery, Jedediah Smith State/Nat'l Park, the Pacific Ocean, and of course, their amazing river access. We never ran out of things to do. We spent countless hours just at the river! I enjoyed runs on the beach (that were virtually private) as well as a beautiful run through Jedediah Smith. When we asked our children what their favorite parts of our vacation were, they both mentioned the river. It really is spectacular. Thankful beyond words for our great stay here. Enjoy!!!!!"

  • Perfect Hideaway

    "Casa Canon was the perfect mountainside retreat along the rugged Mendocino coast...nestled in the woods, yet with a great ocean view, including lighthouse. Accommodations were excellent for two couples, the baths superior, and the kitchen well equipped. We would return in a heartbeat."

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!
