We loved our stay at Seaglass!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here so much that we want to return someday! My family came out for a family wedding so only had a few quick days here but that was enough to want to return. The house was so cute and homey! Everything as so clean and updated, couldn’t have asked for anything better. They left us coffee and a bottle of wine which with so appreciated after our long drive and early mornings. We even went down to the private beach for a bit and despite the cold winds, had a fun morning, Thank you John and Lisa for sharing your beautiful home with us this past weekend!!!

Beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

This home is very comfortable and has a nice feeling of spaciousness. Large windows allow many lines of sight to the trees and birds living in the area.

The neighborhood was very quiet and the beds were quite comfortable so we enjoyed some good nights sleep.

Delightful getaway.

  • 4 of 5

The house is phenomenal and was spotless when we arrived. It is surrounded by forest and quite secluded, and earthquake proof, having been designed by an earthquake specialist/architect. Nice stove, good Internet access, lots of light. Access to the private beach is a steep drive. We liked Manchester State Beach down the road better. The S&B store in Manchester is great and has everything you need. House has beautiful deck with grill. Two things to consider: 1) It is cold! It was foggy most of the time and rarely above 60 degrees. We were essentially in a cloud the whole time. Also, the power went out three days in a row for several hours at a time due to inland fires. Otherwise I would give a 5-star rating. The local house manager is awesome though, and promptly brought us a flashlight. If you want sunshine, go inland or south to Gualala. We made the drive several times. The owners, John and Lisa, are courteous and responsive.

Amazing! Clean and beautifully decorated

  • 5 of 5

This rental is incredibly welcoming and tastefully decorated. The owners have spent considerable time putting together an amazing ocean retreat. The rental is extremely clean and the beds are comfortable. You will be glad you stayed here if you get the chance! It is very quiet and Irish Beach is lovely and secluded. We took a horseback ride on the beach and visited nearby Mendocino and Fort Bragg. The record player was a hit! We would give Seaglass 6/5 stars if the kitchen was more stocked with paper products, linens, some condiments in the fridge and if the pile of lumber/construction material was cleaned up! Our family would love to return.

Irish Beach (Manchester) is a get-away-from-it-all place. The S&B Market is a short 5 minute drive south of Seaglass and this very large mom-and-pop feel market has all the groceries you'll need to enjoy simple or gourmet meals. The store also carries personal care items, household goods and hardware supplies ... it has everything!

Seaside shopping, surfing, and kayaking etc. are all within a short and very scenic drive.
