  • Heaven's a "Lots!!!" closer in a House by the Sea

    "We didn't just like it - WE LOVED IT!!! Just speechless! It has been such a long time that we had this heavenly comfortable feeling during our vacation. Marcie, Patty and Pat...God bless all of you sharing your priceless house. We lost our beloved 14 years old pooch this January, then came here with our new rescued 2 years old pooch to start our new chapter. This trip was a very special for our family. Our happiness truly started from this house. Entering from huge clean driveway, saw 49 Yrs flag (I'm huge fan of 49 Yrs since Montana time, so made me smile to see the flag:), then opened up with gorgeous endless ocean view & vast land holdings exactly as Marcie described. Everything you need were there and we couldn't think of anything missing. Enjoyed cooking 5 nights and did take out dinner twice (nearby Thailand & Mexican restaurant foods were an excellent). Walked to the Cooks Beach with our pooch everyday even one rainy day. A wonderful beach and we all loved it! Local people were very friendly and our pooch had a good time playing with other pooches there too. Saw four Deer and two of them came to front yard, then saw even Whale one day at near ocean when we were hiking. Went fishing at next town peer, then saw many pelicans flying by. We have been stayed more than 20 VRBO houses so far, but this Pelican's house gave us the most "Home Sweet Home" feeling and gave us positive spirit and an extra energy. This is the house that you always want to go back again and again....PS:As a dog owner - many thanks for your safe & secure fence area for our pooch. She totally enjoyed your huge green rush garden:) Thank you so much for everything and your most comfortable house. We'll be be back again!"

  • Spectacular views

    "The girls needed a coast break and this was the perfect spot to watch the waves, sunsets and sunrises. All but one room has a wonderful ocean view and it is minutes from town should you need a break or walk on the beach. Several will be booking family weeks they loved it so much."

  • Best of the Best!

    "To celebrate 28 years together, we could not have picked a better place! Set on a private ocean bluff the Tideaway is a romantic and rustic home with breathtaking ocean views. Close to Ft. Bragg, Mendocino, and State Parks there are plenty of places to explore. The home is beautifully appointed and very comfortable; the well stocked kitchen has everything you could possible need and more. If you are looking for serenity, inspiration or adventure then the Tideaway is your place. Enjoy the day taking in the sites, relax in the hot tub and then fall asleep listening to the waves crashing below. We shall return ! Scott & Nola Montgomery-Lee Camino, CA"

  • Great Cabin

    "The cabin was as described in the listing. The pantry was well stocked. Even though we arrived during heat wave, the cabin was comfortable. The cabin does need a few minor repairs but it did not impact our stay.."

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!
