  • Wonderful Christmas week stay

    "My wife and Irish setter and I are here for 4 months undertaking our annual gray whale research and census project. We drove from Maine and were in need of some Sea Ranch tranquility. We stayed for nearly a week while waiting for our longterm rental in Irish Beach. We had considered Breakaway in past visits to the Mendonoma Coast, but it was not available. The home is very comfortable an laid out in an interesting yet very functional and comfortable way. Peter, the owner had told me he had a Danish (I think I have that correct) architect. Well, the architect had great imagination. We loved it. Its the architecture that makes TSR so interesting and often adds to the beauty. We had Christmas here and my wife very easily cooked a 17 pound turkey and everything else in the kitchen It only looks small. Its very functional. (We had turkey the remainder of the stay as well.) We began our whale census while here and had easy walks down to the bluff to count gray whales as well as sea lions and harbor seals. We did not see whales from the upstairs bedroom, but could have. In the summer I am sure humpback whales can be seen from up top. We did not have any occassion to us the downstairs bedroom other than to check it out upon arrival, but it is very lovely and looks extremely comfortable. The same with the hot tub area. Pete was quick to address any issues and made suggestions. I had a glitch with VRBO, Peter called me from his home, and together we got us booked. Great touch. They have a fantastic sat tv package btw in a very comfortable tv room. I kind of lived in there reading and watching tv when we were not out in the field. There is a house close, as is often typical at TSR. The people seem to be full time residents and are extremely quiet. So don't let that deter you at all. We took terrific walks at night with Bob our dog. Many of the homes were decorated for Christmas and looked beautiful. I recommend their home highly. We just have a really warm memory of that week there."

  • perfect weekend getaway

    "Our family of 4 decided to go on a last minute trip to Mendocino for Easter. We enjoyed everything about our stay at Casa Canon. The place is immaculately clean, nicely designed, cozy and comfortable. There is an adjacent unit, but we didn't see or hear anyone there all weekend, so we fully enjoyed the silence. The view is breathtaking. Getting to play on the private beach - one of the most gorgeous ones on the CA coast - was an added bonus. We highly recommend this place and hope to be back soon."

  • What an incredible little cottage!

    "I came to this little cottage on the coast for what I hoped would be a relaxing weekend, and I don't think I could have found a better spot! I'm already looking at my calendar to figure out when I can come back and bring my boyfriend because it would be perfect for a couple. Actually, I'd love to bring everyone I love to this place so they can experience the happiness I did while I stayed there. Having a solo weekend getaway was what I needed, and this place exceeded my expectations in a big way! I was comfortable and although I was alone this place didn't make me feel lonely. It's spacious, yet cozy, and it's pretty well equipped with most of what you'd need. The hot tub was divine, especially at night under the stars...or early morning you can watch the sunrise while relaxing in the hot tub. It was magical. There were a few minor things that I noticed and wanted to mention. The sheets and bedding had been washed in very heavy scented detergent, and it was a bit overwhelming. I'm sensitive to fragrance and have to admit it was hard to fall asleep because of the strong scent of the pillows and sheets. I'd suggest using detergent that is fragrance free for guests that have a sensitivity to that sort of thing. The other thing was the shower had a curtain only, but no inner plastic lining. So as I was showering I had to keep the actual curtain inside the shower because otherwise water was getting all over the floor...but in keeping the curtain inside the shower it was constantly sticking to me as I tried to shower. I'd recommend a simple, plastic shower liner so there's no water mess, the cute fish shower curtain doesn't get mold damage or ruined, and so guests can shower a little easier. These are merely suggestions, and not complaints. I had such a great time that these minor details weren't a biggie but I felt I should mention them anyway. All in all, I had a wonderful stay at Tom and Susan's ocean front cottage home. I want to thank them both for sharing this truly special place with me. Tom was very nice and I'm glad I was able to meet him right before I left. Unfortunately I was not able to meet Susan but hope to next time I stay. I met many locals and explored the surrounding area during me two night stay. The weather was absolutely perfect...in fact, it was even hot and it's October! I couldn't have asked for a better getaway and it was one of the best weekends of my life, and one I will never forget!"

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.
