Beautiful and peaceful escape!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect quiet getaway for me, my partner and our pup. It was super awesome to have access to the member only beach across the street. The owner was wonderful to work with, very easy going but organized with clear instructions and welcome letter. The house itself had a lovely cabin feel, but was also clean and fully stocked with all the essentials, including for cooking in house if you're on a budget and don't want to eat out for every meal. If we are heading to the area again, we will definitely be booking this property!

Lovely peaceful house so close to the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We've recently returned from our road trip to the States including 4 nights here. Our first impression on walking into the house was 'wow!' It is light and airy and very well equipped. The beach is maybe 5 mins walk away and was pretty much deserted throughout our stay (possibly due to the persistent fog!). We especially enjoyed Fort Bragg and also the sea kayaking out of Little River (Mendocino) which was excellent. We rented through another website but can't leave a review there.

Peaceful and serene

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Kelley, an absolutely amazing host. Her welcome letter was extremely helpful and we found the spot secluded, yet convenient. The house is cozy with west facing windows and by the afternoon, the house had a comfortable warm glow. The ocean view is lovely too. The kitchen is well stocked with major appliances and cookware. There is a Bbq, but this less than competent bbquer couldn't get it lit. The hot tub is a nice perk too. There are plenty of towels!

We managed to get to the stocked pond a short walk away which was fun for the kids. The house is pretty well child-proofed as we have a 16 month-old and felt it was safe. There was a pack and play too! The bay windows were nice for him as he could see the ocean view and the local deer in our yard.

We hit point arena pier and lighthouse ($7.50 per person, $5 for kids). If you enjoy fishing, the pier has some of the best and it is a beautiful pier. I heard late that there is a world renowned French bakery in point arena called mamma's(?) A couple ladies came from France to open this spot so apparently a must try. There is a pharmacy and gas station in point arena (10 min) and a hospital (1- 1.5 hrs) in Fort Bragg which I thought was good to know since we experienced the ER on this trip. The local market is actually pretty decent and is only 4 miles away!

We had to leave early due to a medical issue and Kelley was extremely caring and accomodating during that difficult time for us. She was kind enough to credit back the days we missed. The time we had was wonderful and we hope to make it back.

Blissful Midweek Bargain

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a comfortable retreat, rent this lovely home overlooking Irish Beach. It is an easy place to kick back — a warm, cabin-like atmosphere with beautiful coastal views and all the comforts of home. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub, grilling up some "shrimp on the barbie", and taking walks along the gorgeous private beach. An excellent value, and the owner is more than nice. ~Allen and Arli Quesada

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned to Irish Beach with our family for Spring Break. What a treat, we stayed as the guests of Kelley and thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations. The hot tub was wonderful and we managed to BBQ every night. The view is lovely and the front room was the ideal place to sit in the morning enjoying breakfast. We enjoyed how well the kitchen was equipped and ate at home every night as having a baby and going out is not always that convenient.

All in all a very successful stay at a very clean, well organized house. Thank you Kelley, we would love to return someday!
