Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + game room with bed, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-10)

THE VIEWS DO NOT GET MUCH BETTER THAN THIS! The pictures give you some idea of the magnitude of the view down the coast, but to a tee, guests say it doesn't match seeing it in person.

When you walk in the front door, my best description is that it's like looking out of a cruise ship that' docked on a private cove. With Russian Gulch State Park as our neighbor, you have a unobstructed view all the way down the coast to the Mendocino Headlands! Stormy days are majestic as you sit and watch the coastline explode as far as the eye can see. Sit outside on our large deck overlooking ocean and hear nothing but the waves while watching the migration of the gray whales, or relax in the hot tub with the same commanding views. We added a downstairs patio complete with a fire pit. Yet you are only 5 minutes from downtown Mendocino, full of great shopping, restaurants and nightlife. Russian Gulch State park is less than 1/2 mile from the house where you can hang out at their beach, Kayak the coves, or hike the trails to waterfalls. Take a stroll to the Pt. Cabrillo Lighthouse or a little further brings you to Caspar Beach where you can surf, kayak or simply lay back on the large sandy beach.

Back at our home, we have all the amenities you will need, from a full kitchen, cable TV, stereo, VCR, DVD, to a game room complete with a pool table, antique slot machines and exercise equipment.

Build a fire, turn on our funky fish lights (By artist Doug Rathbun), pour a libation and enjoy. Stroll downstairs to the game room and enjoy a game of pool, or walk outside to the hot tub that is situated with the same commanding views and look at the stars overhead. This place is truly special, no doubt about it. From its unassuming exterior to the warm amenities inside, we guarantee the place will take your breath away.

Welcome to Pelican Point.

You will love it, ...I guarantee it!

About Don Walker

My wife and I were married in Mendocino in 1981. We have always enjoyed the area and when we sold my mother-in-laws house in Hawaii we (I) embarked on finding an ocean front house there as a investment-rental for her.

Don Walker purchased this house in 2011

Why Don Walker chose Mendocino

I've participated in the Mendocino Abalone Cook Off several times and have taken the grand prize a few times. Always loving the area, I was looking for oceanfront property as an investment/income for my mother-in-law. After several tries (every time I made it over, the property I was coming over to look at would be in escrow) I got a call from my realtor about another oceanfront property. I made it halfway to Mendocino when I got the call that it went into escrow. Being halfway there I decided to come over anyway and look at other properties. The first one was what I now call Pelican Point. I really did not want to look at it because it was WAY out of our budget.

It was a beautiful sunny day. I looked at the house as we drove up and to be honest, I thought it looked kinda barn like, but my first steps into the home took my breath away. The fire was going and all I could see was coastline and ocean. It was (is) truly breathtaking! I had to have it!

It was a long journey to get the house. Suffice it to say, everything fell in line and this unbelievable house is ours, and we love to share it with others! It’s November 25, 2013 as I write this, and I’m even more excited about the place than when we first got it. It’s a great place to hang with family and or friends. We invite you to come share the experience. You will not be disappointed

What makes this house unique

THE VIEWS ARE MAJESTIC. THE LOCATION IS INCREDIBLE. IT'S LIKE HAVING YOUR OWN ISLAND NEXT TO DOWNTOWN MENDOCINO.

Even better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

Natural beauty galore outside and a ton of character on the inside. We rented Pelican Point as a venue to celebrate my Dad's 80th (he's a Mendo resident). We had four couples (one of whom had two elementary age boys). The place handled us all very well and provided a gorgeous location for my Dad's dinner - which we had catered. Not only is the view captivating, but there are lots of interesting light fixtures, art-work, games, and other memorabilia. Really a cool place!

I recommend Pelican Point very highly. I own a vacation rental in Washington State and know when an owner really cares about his/her guests' satisfaction. You can easily tell that Don works hard to make sure his guests love the place as much as he does. We'll definitely be back - at the rate my Dad is going, we'll need it to celebrate his 85th!

Beautiful getway coastal home with a fantastic host.

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house with some friends for my birthday and it was perfect. There probably isn't much more I can say that hasn't already been said. The house is spacious yet cozy and has amazing ocean views everywhere. The pictures do not do it justice. The house was fully stocked which made cooking meals a blast. Its just a few minutes outside of Mendocino town which was convenient but far enough that it felt secluded. The stars at night were amazing to watch from the hottub outside.

Don himself is very responsive and helpful. My friend left a Chromecast attached to the TV and he made the effort to find it for us which not everyone would do. 5 stars from me!

Secluded, pristine, relaxing... these are a few of my favorite things.

  • 5 of 5

We searched for the right spot for a long time, evaluating cost vs luxury vs location and this was the place. Being from Texas, it was a delight to sleep with the windows open and listen to the waves crashing into the cliffs below. In the mornings we would drink coffee on the deck and watch the neighborhood turkeys roam around as well as the kayakers in the waters below. In the evening, it was wine from the hot tub and watching the hummingbirds and deer on the territory. We were never bothered by anyone and privacy was certainly respected. There were only four of us but this three story beauty of a home could have easily comforted several more people. The point is, if you have a small group of friends or a family of many, this place fits the bill. I mean that, spend the money treat yourself. I work hard and often and it was amazing to finally hit the "reset" button and just breath. My thanks go out to Mr Walker for allowing us the time to enjoy such an amazing place. We WILL be back!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay at Pelican Point. The house was in the perfect location for us. The property had a very private feel and had an amazing view. The house was really nicely decorated and very clean. The kitchen well stocked with misc. items a vacationer might need to feel at home.

A healing four days!

  • 5 of 5

Six brothers and sisters left the stress of work and health issues behind, relaxing in the hot tub, soaking up the amazing view, sipping wine and falling asleep to the sound of waves. This was a powerful prescription for feeling better in so many ways! The house had everything we needed (and most of what we wanted) and we were sorry to have our four days end. A perfect getaway!
