Just ten minutes south of the historic village of Mendocino and only 3 minutes south of the movie-famed Heritage House Inn, TIDEPOOL is a unique cliff-top oceanfront retreat – a spacious 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home perched 100 feet above scenic Whitesboro Cove. Its angular box design, beamed ceilings, and redwood interior and exterior are reminiscent of the Sea Ranch architectural style. A veritable sixty foot wraparound floor-to-ceiling wall of glass, spanning the living and sun rooms, immerses you in the panoramic sweep of the rugged Albion Headlands whitewater coastline, Whitesboro Cove, and the Pacific Ocean. Sit inside or outside on the wind-sheltered deck or in the hot tub at eye level with soaring osprey, pelicans, hawks, and gulls and enjoy the nonstop procession of ocean swells crashing into the rocks below. The pelicans and osprey hover all day long above the cove, crashdiving into the water for the local sushi. During their seasonal migrations, you'll experience the parade of spouts, fins and flukes of Pacific gray whales.
The Master bedroom loft (king bed & half bath) and its oversized North facing window offer a picture perfect view of the crashing waves without even having to lift your head from the pillow and a private cozy deck to enjoy the sun or your own private view of the stars. The 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms on the first floor (queen bed and 2 twin-XL's configurable as a King mattress) are located down the hall from the galley kitchen. The downstairs Master bedroom suite features its own recently remodeled bathroom with an oversized tiled shower and bench combo with bar-holds for safety. A formal dining room comfortably seats six to eight and the Franklin fireplace compliments any meal. While dining, enjoy the pre-recorded keyboard selections on the Yamaha Electric Clavinova or the musicians amongst you can make your own music.
Stretch out in the paired Scandinavian leather recliners in the privacy of the all-cedar-and-glass Lindal sunroom and listen to your favorite music while meditating upon the ever-changing panoramic ocean, coastal, and bay vistas. No matter the weather outside, it’s always comfy inside because of the house’s central heating. With a cozy fire burning in the wood stove, enjoy the spectacular ocean sunsets and the grazing and winged wildlife while ensconced upon the living room’s comfy leather sofas. Both the living room and upstairs master bedroom feature a Bose audio and 55-inch HDTV entertainment center fed by a Direct TV Network HD/DVR receiver with complimentary HBO, Starz, Showtime, and Cinemax movie channels. iPod docking cable to stereo.
Like an oceanfront oasis, your privacy is assured – located at the end of a cul-de-sac; TIDEPOOL is part of a private, GATED road just two minutes south of the Ledford House Restaurant and Albion River Restaurant, two great dining experiences on the coast. Nearby, the quaint town of Albion offers everything you need for your much-needed retreat, and the Albion Flats Cafe, just 3 minutes North, cooks up the best budget-priced breakfasts on the North Coast while offering a surrealistic view from below the last remaining wooden trestle bridge on CA Highway One. Although there is NO BEACH ACCESS from our cliff top property, you can enjoy stopping off at Van Damme Beach in Little River or Big River Beach in Mendocino during your ten minute drive into Mendocino.
Hi-Speed broadband Internet connection and WiFi is available anywhere in the house so bring your tablets, laptops, and Roku devices to stream your favorite video entertainment.

Beautiful property with perfect location
We really enjoyed our stay . Howard has the perfect place for a romantic getaway or a family reunion. The house has everything one needs including a fully equipped kitchen . The views from within and outside the house are breathtaking. Howard communicated clearly and accurately and We would love to stay again!
Terrific views to enjoy by a cozy wood fire
What a great spot. The living room and sunroom have huge wrap-around windows looking out onto the ocean. The house had everything we needed, and when we managed to tear ourselves away from it, there were nice coastal trails and other attractions nearby.
Very nice settings and a great retreat .
Albion Ocean View
My girlfriend and I wanted a romantic weekend on the Mendocino coast. Howard's place was fabulous and incredibly scenic. We loved the Sunroom with all of the windows and comfortable chairs. Although we went out to his recommended restaurants most of the time, we did prepare breakfast and dined in the Sunroom. His house is very close to so many attractions: went rode the Skunk Train, went horseback riding on Ross Beach, visited the Point Arena Lighthouse and strolled through the Botanical Gardens. The only negative we had was the wind for two days. It was extremely strong and prevented us from using the hot tub. It is a beautiful and fun place to stay and beats the heck out of a hotel.
A slice of heaven
We are getting ready to head home, neither of us want to leave. This home is everything they advertise and more. Very clean and comfortable, very very cozy.
We saw a variety of birds, lots of deer and even a skunk. Had a variety of weather, the ocean views are spectacular.
The kitchen set up is great, and eating in the sunroom looking at the views are wonderful.
We came here to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary and couldn't have picked a better spot.
Although we didn't need him, Howard responded quickly when we were setting this trip up.
This house is exactly what we had hoped for, and three days of sitting in the sunroom enjoying the view were just what we needed. Thank you for sharing this beautiful place.
Very comfortable house with great views, good beds, and lovely hot tub.
We loved the quiet of the gated community. There is lots of wildlife to see from the house. We also enjoyed walking along the bluffs nearby and biking in the redwoods. The restaurants are fabulous. We will be back!
