About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

..A VIEW FROM THE BOW OF A SHIP! Exquisite comfort. The only thing exceeding the quality of the home is the quality of the view. Relax in elegance in our newly remodeled oceanfront home on the Mendocino coast or use it as a base to visit the many local attractions. Listen to the Pacific Ocean while you barbecue or view the stars while sitting in the hot tub in the evening. View soaring sea birds at eye level. Autumn and spring bring the whales offshore on their annual migrations. You are an easy drive to some of the best restaurants on the coast and 5 to 10 minutes to groceries, pharmacies, movies and shopping. Noyo harbor also has some very fine restaurants or you can book whale watching & deep sea fishing trips - just minutes away.

Vacation year-round, as the home is kept comfortable with cool ocean breezes in the summer and gas fireplace and Monitor heater during the winter months. And, if you are at the house at the right time, you can watch the beauty of winter storms from the comfort of our fully furnished home.

From the most elegant halogen light fixtures, a chef's dream of a kitchen (fully equipped), tasteful original artwork, extensive slate floors & abundant skylights, this home offers features not found in other short-term rentals. The bathroom tile work alone is beyond compare and is complemented by the upscale plumbing fixtures. The kitchen features stainless appliances, granite countertops, wine & drink cooler, produce pantry & crisper, two food prep sinks, commercial gas range, 2 ovens, microwave & built in dinette with matching granite countertop.

The floor-to-ceiling living & dining room windows gaze out to fabulous Hare Creek Bay where you can watch local surfers, birds & whales (Dec-Mar). Take a short walk to the beach - this is the only home in the area that has a deeded access to the beach via a spectacular brick stairway through a eucalyptus grove. Perched 30 feet above the bay, the southwest facing views take full advantage of sunlight throughout the year. Relax, refresh & reflect - 'A New World' awaits you!

A Lovely Splurge

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with three high school girlfriends, all of us active seniors now for a wonderful four day retreat. The home is located on a bluff overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean with easy beach access, (however the ocean water isn't the kind you want to play in), and close to sight seeing attractions. It is comfortable, immaculate, and plush. We felt like we were staying in a 5 star hotel. Bob and Lynda have thought of everything. A very worthwhile splurge.

Felt just like home (with a better view)!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Lynda & Bob for sharing your incredible home with my family! It was the perfect home away from home for our Thanksgiving celebration this year. We took full advantage of the amenities your home has to offer--the gourmet kitchen, outdoor spa, private beach, and puzzle library :) The surrounding area was also beautiful and easily accessible, keeping us busy with activities for several days (hiking, exploring the coastal bluffs, walking around the towns, wine tasting, etc.) We are already thinking about when we can return next. Thank you for such an enjoyable stay!

Incredible Views and an Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

Let me begin by saying that the pictures in VRBO of this home do not truly show you how incredible this home is and the spectacular views! Bob and Lynda truly spared NO EXPENSE when they remodeled the home completely. Everything was great. My family and I loved our vacation here and we can't wait until we come back. Thank you Lynda and Bob for sharing your amazing home with us!

Ocean..Beach..Wildlife..Beautiful Home--Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

As indicated in other reviews, as impressive as the photos and descriptions on this website portray A New World, this is one of those rare cases where reality will exceed your expectations.

The attention to detail, mentioned by other reviewers, was a major factor for my wife in choosing to celebrate her 60th birthday at A New World. She was not disappointed!

The home has a warm feel and is decorated with a pleasing, ocean theme aesthetic. The stocking of the home is well thought out: coffee beans, ready to grind; air freshener in each bathroom; very well stocked kitchen, with all the dishes, silverware, utensils, pots, pans, coffee makers, mixers, crock pots, two ovens, a gas stovetop, two refrigerated drawers for soda, wine (or whatever) in addition to a nice side-by-side refrigerator/freezer. It just goes on and on...even pancake mix and syrup! If you don't feel like doing any real cooking, there is a Papa Murphy's take n' bake pizza place about half of a mile from the house.

The open floor plan--with the kitchen, a very comfortable living room (with a large television), large "formal" dining room table, in addition to the dining table extending from the kitchen (which you will most likely use the most)---all provide spectacular ocean views.

Outside there is a Weber charcoal grill, as well as a wood fire pit with long forks for grilling hot dogs (a big hit with our guests). Spend a little extra for the Hebrew National hot dogs at Safeway--they are really good! Lots of chairs outside also.

As nice as the house is, and it is very nice, THE OCEAN is the star of the show. The view, from inside the house, will blow you away. For me, the wildlife that share the property were an additional unexpected treat. In the week and a half my wife and our guests spent at A New World, we were pleased to see deer, turkeys, very large rabbits, and a couple of grey foxes. Those were on the property.

On the beach below, you will see lots of birds; mostly seagulls, but geese, ducks, egrets and other birds will likely join the party. My wife and I were also happy to see a lone seal swim in front of us on one of our visits to the beach (via the private access).

Although all of my contacts regarding A New World have been with Lynda, I would like to commend both Bob and Lynda for their vision and hard work in discovering a diamond in the rough a number of years ago and turning it into a very special place.

My wife and I both look forward to our next visit.

Incredible home & location

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at A New World. We all gasped when we arrived. While the pictures online are beautiful, there is just no way to capture the full beauty of this location without being there. The beach access, hot tub, floor to ceiling windows overlooking the ocean were favorites. We were there for three nights and we barely went anywhere, because we didn't need to! The house, grounds, and beach, provided all that we needed. We will definitely be back.

Heaven by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 2nd stay at A New World. 3 nights of perfection! This home has completely spoiled us to ever stay anywhere else. The love that Bob & Lynda have poured into their home is so evident in each & every detail. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us.
