  • Perfect home away from home!

    "the house was perfect! It was very cozy and spacious. the hot tub has a wonderful view of the sunset every evening over the ocean. it was very clean and there were plenty of extra towels and cooking supplies, etc. We had a wonderful little bottle of local and very amazing wine waiting for us. the only thing that could of made it better was the ability to hear the waves from the house and the wifi connection was very weak as expected for that area. but the amount of space is incredible, with no close neighbors."

  • Not a Five-Star Accommodation

    "Our 4-night stay in mid November involved 5 adults. Prior reviewers have noted the fine views, spacious dining and sitting areas, excellent master suite, etc. But this rental has some negative aspects: the second upstairs bedroom/bathroom is not en-suite, the down bedroom is rather small with a bathroom door that would not close, a shower head that leaked and a poorly-sliding screen door. This bedroom has a gas heater that was not operative during our stay (although needed). There was only one operative hair dryer in the house. Carpet and area rugs in the house are well-used and not clean. Kitchen utensils and glasses are sparse and all glasses required washing prior to use. Although of no impact to renters, the home exterior is somewhat shabby--paint is peeling and exterior shingles missing. These negatives detract from the lovely setting and views available from the house."

  • Anniversary Weekend

    "My husband, toddler son and I enjoyed a relaxing weekend along with his cousin and her husband celebrating our anniversaries (marriage and engagement). The house is huge with two bedrooms on opposite sides of the home to ensure privacy. The kitchen is huge and had all the things we needed to cook or barbeque. The pool wasn't heated but for the guys it felt good because it was hot outside. The hot tub was body temperature and felt good. The property is fenced in and secure; we left our dog outside as we went wine tasting. My favorite part was getting up early and going outside to sit on the deck to watch the sun rise over the vines. We had a wonderful weekend and would easily come back again to stay."

  • Family Fun

    "We were all very comfortable and had every thing that we expected from a vacation rental. We were greeted by the owner who was putting fresh flowers in vases in the house. The fireplaces gave us the camping atmosphere so the young children could enjoy making smores. The views from the upstairs living room and the kitchen window were very nice. We were within walking distance of the beach and had the joy of seeing whales and sea lions. The tide pools had lots of ocean life to observe and touch. It was also great fun to fly kites. Even though we did not see elk from the house this time we could hear them bugling at night. What a treat!"

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.
