LOCATION! BAY DREAM is a dramatic oceanfront home with whitewater views of the Pacific Ocean, Caspar Cove, headlands and Caspar Beach located just a few minutes drive north of MENDOCINO VILLAGE.
YOUR MEMORABLE VACATION STARTS IN A MEMORABLE VACATION HOME! Bay Dream is the ultimate home for the total coastal experience. This contemporary home is light, and bright with lots of huge windows to appreciate the ever changing ocean. From BAY DREAM you can walk the trails along the headlands and down to the tide pools, or take a short stroll down to CASPAR BEACH (a 1/4 mile WALK or a 2 minute DRIVE to the SAND ), great for surfing and kayaking. You can rent kayaks and paddle boards at Caspar Beach. You can watch the WHALES migrating, and the SEA LIONS sun themselves from this exclusive peninsula, GATED on a private road where only a handful of homes have been allowed.
THE BACK YARD HAS A FENCE BUT CHILDREN SHOULD BE CLOSELY SUPERVISED WHEN OUTSIDE, AS HOUSE IS NEAR THE BLUFF.
With its 5 BEDROOMS (rare for an OCEANFRONT vacation rental) and 2.5+ baths, 6 PERSON upper deck HOT TUB, LARGE, FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN area with abundant seating and all the amenities, Bay DREAM is the ultimate home for larger families or special friends to experience a Mendocino DREAM Vacation! THE KITCHEN HAS ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO PREPARE GOURMET MEALS FOR A LARGE GROUP!
One of the unique features of this home is its location CLOSE TO THE BLUFF. The ebb and flow of the tides pass right in front of BAY DREAM giving the house its own natural rhythm, a rhythm that seems to REPLENISH THE SOUL AND SPIRIT of those within. Many guests have commented on this phenomenon over the years along with their remarks of 'We did not want to leave'. Stay a few days at Bay Dream and see for yourself! This open concept, MULTI-LEVEL home with its HUGE windows, decks and large HOT TUB provide endlessly-changing views of breaking waves, A BLOW-HOLE, fishing boats, kayaks, windsurfers, surfers, sunsets, and abundant wildlife! The incredible wildlife entertainment include whales, sea lions, osprey, pelicans, and gulls swimming and soaring up close and personal!
From the LARGE OPEN KITCHEN area you can VIEW the OCEAN with fishing boats, the BAY with kayaks and abalone-divers, and the BEACH with its surfers and paddle boarders; quite an entertaining panorama. There are BOOGIE BOARDS at the house or rent kayaks, surfboards, etc. at Caspar Beach. A wetsuit is recommended.

About Debby Merliss
PLEASE CALL ME at 530-541-2370(H) or 530-721-2163(C) if I can help you in any way. I hope you decide to experience an awe-inspiring vacation at Bay Dream!
Debby Merliss purchased this House in 1996
Why Debby Merliss chose Caspar
We vacationed in Mendocino for several years before we came upon this incredibly rare oceanfront lot for sale. We imagined that building a vacation home in this spot would be a once in a lifetime opportunity. We designed the home to be a vacation rental with the dream to use it on occasion for our family and to share with special friends.
What makes this House unique
LOCATION, Very Unique Viewscape up close and personal, as BAY DREAM sits close to bluff. The house has a small fence but still need to keep close watch over children. With so much beautiful and fascinating drama of the sea and wildlife activity, you do not feel the need to go anywhere! You can stay at the house all day and feel like you have totally experienced the Mendocino Coast. Just a short walk or drive to Caspar Beach, a great beach to swim, surf, kayak, skimboard, and paddleboard!

Wonderful views, plenty of space, perfect vacation!
We stayed at Bay Dream with another family so there were 4 adults and 7 kids. There was plenty of space for us to spread out when we needed to be doing our own thing, but also plenty of seating for meals and hanging out on the couches together. The house also comes with more kitchen items than you could ever need, so we never had a problem cooking for and feeding everyone. The view out the main windows are to die for! One morning a few of us went on a run down to the beach (it's only a couple minutes) and wound our way back up through the neighborhood by the house. It was picturesque and dreamy! Our kids loved the hot tub and the foosball table. They practically preferred those activities over going out to a beach or exploring the coast. :) We would love to come back again in the future!
Perfect location. Beautiful home.
Just a wonderful beautiful home for our annual women’s get together. Lovely owner too!
Wonderful house. Loved it!!
This house was fabulous. We all loved staying here. The house is very well stocked compared to others we have stayed at. Everything is clearly marked and easy to use. The view is fantastic and an easy walk to Caspar Beach. Would recommend to anyone interested in a house on the Coast.
Amazing location and had everything we needed.
Great location and beautiful house.
Great stay at Bay Dream
Wonderful place to stay on the coast. Plenty of room, GREAT views, excellent kitchen, fine walks nearby, convenient to shopping and dining in Mendocino and Fort Brag. We had a grand time; we have stayed there before, and have already booked our next stay!!!
A Perfect Stay At A Perfect Spot
The house is beautiful. The view is great. Our stay was all that we hoped for.
The house has everything you could possibly need. We would love to go again
Fantastic Whale-Watching from upper and lower decks and even smaller pilot whales venture into cove for viewing up close and personal, minutes to Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens and to ride Skunk Train into Redwood Forest, take an Art Class in Mendocino Village (great scenery to paint from the house!), CV Starr Community Center with new Spath Aquatic Center in Ft. Bragg has an indoor water park with 146 foot tall twister slide.
