This Mendocino house has a king, a queen, and two trundle beds (each of these beds can sleep two singles or make into queen size beds). All firewood, linens, kitchen supplies, and bedding are provided for your convenience as well as a washer and dryer. Portable crib is available.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a lovely first visit to The Coast House. Everthing needed was amply provided and we appreciated how CLEAN everything was. The position of the house on the propeerty let us feel secluded and the view from all the many windows was peaceful. A big bonus was seeing several varied trush up close - what a beautiful bird. We enjoyed the rain the sunshine and finally fresh crab. Just delighful !!

Comfortable and Homey

  • 5 of 5

Nice and cozy home in a convenient location. So close to the local towns, yet enough space to sit outside and enjoy nature. House was clean and ready for us upon arrival. Really enjoyed our stay.

What a wonderful home and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 3 absolutely loved this place! It was charming, clean, and cozy. It had everything we needed and little things I forgot to pack, they had available. It rained one night, so while we couldn't go outside to eat on the patio, we enjoyed the firewood stove and could have stayed inside all weekend if we hadn't already had plans to explore the tide pools and glass beach. We really enjoyed the comfort of the house and in our next stay, could just relax inside the house the entire time. The bed in the master bedroom was so soft and inviting. While I enjoyed staying up and hanging out in the living room, it was a treat to go to bed and just lay there listening to the rain in the nights. It also is the type of mattress that you can't feel any movement in when the other person on the other half of the bed is moving around so you don't get disturbed at night. It was secluded and private, yet not far from the main strip and close to the destinations we wanted to explore. It was a perfect location for us. What a great atmosphere to relax in and getaway from our everyday fast paced lives. All my communications with the owners were easy and prompt. They were helpful prior to the trip in answering questions I had about the house and the area. It didn't list coffee maker in the Kitchen of the listing, but there is one as well as the filters that go with it. We hope to return to the area in the future and this would be the only place we consider when we do. I searched a lot of the other homes in the area online before deciding on this one and I'm glad we came across it in the listing. Definitely a great place to stay!

Very homey

  • 4 of 5

This home is cozy and has a great deck. Our family enjoyed the good beds (although the trundle bed frames are pretty old and hard to use), the wood burning stove with a glass door and convenient drives to beaches and restaurants. It’s not a new home, so outlets were a little hard to find/use, and the kitchen isn’t spectacular, but we had a great time.

Burlingame, Ca

Clean, cozy and comfy...!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to several VRBO homes and had great luck.

This is anothe good one...!

The amp and hosue is easy access for a wheel chair.

The kitchen counters are low so my friend could share

in the cooking and cleaning.

It was unusally cold this weekend but the house warms up quickly and stays very comfortable.

The wood burning stove makes for great atmoshoere and comfort.

This is a home I would def recommend and return to for future fun...!
