Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our house in Enchanted Meadows (that is the actual name of the area, you couldn’t make it up!) in Anchor Bay, California is the perfect place for a couple or a small group of family or friends to get away for a few days. It sits on top a hill along famous Highway 1 on the coast.

Because Enchanted Meadows is located in the so called banana belt, the weather is warm and sunny even if much of the coast is covered in fog. The main house has a living room and dining room with hardwood floors, a fully equipped kitchen, one bedroom, a large newly remodeled bathroom with floor heating and a huge deck around the house. Two additional buildings serve as two more bedrooms, one with a bathroom.

The house sits in a Redwood forest with a partial blue water ocean view. You can hear the waves and sea lions from the house. The setting is very private, calm and romantic. The deck and garden are perfect for hottubbing, relaxing, sunbathing, enjoying meals or watching the local wildlife. You will most likely meet the local bevy of quail, watch the hummingbirds dart around the garden, hear the ravens in the trees, see the chipmunks and squirrels and maybe get a glimpse of a deer.

One of the most wonderful features of the house is the light. In the morning the whole house is flooded with warm morning light. Watching the full moon from the hot tub on the deck or through the windows inside the house travel across the night sky is spectacular. And without the moon, the sky is exploding with stars and planets, an amazing experience from the comfort of the hot tub. For city dwellers the lack of light pollution is awe-inspiring.

In the winter, the wood burning stove in the living room will keep you warm and cozy.

Though you feel like you are away from it all, you are very close to civilization. Anchor Bay is just 5 minutes down the hill and offers a supermarket and two restaurants. Gualala is about 10 minutes to the South and offers a wide variety of restaurants, two supermarkets, a post office, gas stations, gift shops and live music. Gualala is about 10 miles north of Sea Ranch, Sonoma County.

The spectacular Mendocino coast and its beautiful beaches are a great place to explore, hike, fish, dive and surf.

Our house is a short drive to the Point Arena Cove and the Point Arena Lighthouse which offers some of the best whale watching on the entire West coast.

About The Owner

Our house in Enchanted Meadows is our personal vacation home, but we enjoy making it available for you to rent. John and I spend as much time up there as we can because we love the area. The Mendocino Coast is an easy place to fall in love with; you should try it!

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Gualala

If you have to ask, you need to come visit the area! It is paradise. This stretch is one of the most amazing parts of the California coast. It is rugged and offers any outdoor loving person unlimited possibilities.

What makes this house unique

Our property is at the end of the road, which means that you are looking out on the ocean and trees. The hill is South facing and offers a unique sunny, windless and warm climate, the locals call it the Banana Belt.

Beautiful house in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time relaxing here with our bridal party on the way up to Westport for our wedding. It was so beautiful we grilled on the patio and then went hot tubbing! The heated bathroom floor was especially nice!

Tree house with ocean view and spa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the weekend for my wife's birthday. It is a beautiful serene spot with all the quiet and restoration you want in a vacation. Being able to sit in the spa and enjoy a view of the ocean was amazing. We would definitely recommend this spot to anyone wanting a quiet and relaxing evening away.

Anchor Bay Escape

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful and quiet. Just what I needed to get away from the hot smokey air of Sacramento. This cabin is located in the perfect place in the woods.

A quiet, peaceful place to escape to the trees

  • 4 of 5

Our family loves this location. We drove from Ohio, so we had no idea what to expect. The kitchen was a great place to cook and enjoy the view. Also, my children loved their little cabin that was a few steps from the main house. They spent a lot of time in the hot tub. It was big enough for them to each have their own space. There were enough towels and blankets that everyone was comfortable. If there was one problem, it was the fact that the Wi-Fi was slow and we were unable to use Netflix or Amazon Prime. Katrina was overly helpful and stayed in contact with us throughout our trip and our stay. If we lived closer, we would definitely come back!

Beautiful getaway on the North Coast

  • 5 of 5

We were so thrilled with our experience at Enchanted Meadows! This home is lovely, the location is perfect, and Katrina is such a fantastic host. Katrina made it so simple to arrive and begin our adventures, and was full of excellent recommendations for what to do in the area. Our expectations were exceeded! We hoped to have a relaxing retreat from our busy lives, and the Enchanted Meadows delivered that in spades! We are already looking forward to visiting again soon.

Beautiful, relaxing, quiet peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure what I can say in addition to all the other wonderful reviews of this property other than they are all truthful!!! Katrina was amazing, contacting us before our trip to ensure that her beautiful home was in line with our expectations and offering numerous suggestions on things to do and see in the area. The views are breathtaking and star gazing in the hot tub was spectacular.

If you want a quiet getaway and appreciate nature, this is definitely the place to book. You will not be disappointed!!
