About the property

Convenient Large Home, updated to be bright and comfortable

Sleeps 4, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, Bedrooms upstairs, as is one of the bathrooms

If you want to experience the quaint village lifestyle, this home is for you. Situated in the quiet residential village of Mendocino, it's a short walk to all restaurants, grocery stores, art galleries, fine shopping, beaches, walking trails and headlands. This home has a beautiful private garden and is just steps away from spectacular ocean views. A photographer's paradise, more than 40 films and television shows have been filmed in Mendocino. The charming Victorian-style homes, water towers and dramatic ocean views make it an ideal spot for rest, relaxation, creative work and exploring nature. This home is a real gem, with cozy beds and all the amenities you'll need to rest and relax.

What people often don't realize is that October, is one of the most favorable times to visit. While all seasons offer something, October is my favorite month for the warmth of the weather, the slow down of the season (re:less crowds) and the sun that shines warm before the storms of winter.

* Marigold House can also be rented in combination with Marigold Cottage (VRBO # 1164708), a studio unit with its own kitchen, on the same property, in order to accommodate up to 6 guests total.

*I will greet you at the house to answer any questions, help you with info about the area and let you in.

About Zelda Zuniga

Our family have been residents of Mendocino since 1994. We love the village and its quant uniqueness. You can walk everywhere and to the ocean is right out your doors. Mendocino is special with its three borders of ocean. Headlands hiking and spectacular ocean vistas. I made it a goal to move here almost thirty years ago.

Why Zelda Zuniga chose Mendocino

We love the village setting the most for vacationing. The slower, quiet pace of Mendocino along with the fresh ocean air and the sounds of the ocean waves at night, seem to be the perfect "soul food" for us.

This particular house was moved to where it sits on May 14,1870 making it one of the oldest homes in town. We purchased the home in 2005 and did a complete renovation / remodel of the home and property. It is a charming Cottage Style Victorian home and by giving it the restoration it deserved, we felt we were contributing to the community and town that we loved. Having enjoyed it as our own private vacation home, we are now ready to share it with others who will appreciate its unique charm.

This particular home is on a double lot and has two private decks both behind the main house and out in the garden. Because the house is a block or two inland from the headlands, it is shielded from the cooler ocean breezes which provides more available days to BBQ and sit outside in the garden. We love the charming village lifestyle and this home provides all the amenities with privacy and access to everything we need while there.

What makes this house unique

It is on the village. Convenient to all. The gardens are peaceful and the space serene. It is bright and comfortable and private too!

Well maintained home with a beautiful garden

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit. Kitchen is well stocked and furniture and beds were comfortable. Two odd things: there was no hand soaps for shower or tubs (expected soap given the price). We were two couples and there is insufficient seating for 4 people to sit and watch a movie (given House is for 4 this seems like an odd set up).

Owner's Response: Thank you for your honest feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your time in our neck of the woods. I apologize for not having individual hand soaps. We do supply liquid soap at every sink and gel soap in the shower. No one has mentioned this before, so I hadn't thought of this preference! I have placed hand soap bars in the home now, so next time you choose to come they'll be there for you and for those that prefer will have it. As far as the TV room goes, you have a very good point. The home was not originally set up for guests. The previous owners had it as a second home when they decided to offer it as a vacation rental. Its central location makes it ideal after all. The new owners recently purchased it last year, keeping it as a vacation spot, so with this in mind changes may be in store. I welcome guests to contact me if there is something I can do, to make your stay as wonderful as possible. I am minutes away and I can rectify or supply any items you may want to help your stay be awesome. Zelda

The house is close to the Mendocino Art Center, (The MAC): the heart of the spirit of Mendocino, founded in 1959, it offers 150 retreat style classes each year in ceramics, fine arts, fiber arts, jewelry and sculpture.

Right outside your doors, you can walk to the ocean in minutes. You'll be walking into town in the same time frame.

You can hike, eat, bike, tour wineries, ride the Skunk Train, visit art galleries (besides the MAC), dine, cruise on kayaks, lunch, walk the oceanfront headlands that surround Mendocino on three sides and have a gourmet dinner. (Great restaurants by the way).

The Mendocino Botanical Gardens is 7 miles north, ranked #5 in the country by USA Magazine, it is the most visited spot on the coast, with trails reaching ocean front.

There will be information inside your home away from home. I am very accessible via text, phone, email, and text (guess which is faster?)
