Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom + 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Accommodations: House, 1 Bedroom + 1 Bath (Sleeps 2) .

This very private and romantic oceanfront Mendocino home is a spacious split-level set as close to the ocean as possible so as to take full advantage of the dramatic setting. The soothing sounds of the ocean waves rolling in and crashing against the rocks below will make you feel like you are on your own private island.

This gem of a house has romantic, private, and truly million dollar expansive views of the ocean from every room. The view through the French doors is truly breathtaking. A wrought iron spiral staircase ascends to the upstairs oversized King bed. The fireplace also has an amazing view of the ocean. The night time sky reveals a starry sky unpolluted by city lights.

The hot tub on the deck outside is a great spot for sipping local wines while watching the whales and seals play in the ocean. This, one of a kind house is an ideal getaway for a honeymoon, anniversary, or that much needed and deserved time off.

This home is close driving distance to the village of Mendocino, Fort Bragg, Point Arena as well as the renowned Anderson Valley wine country.

Please note the owner will send out address and access information about a week prior to checkin date of confirmed guests.

Because of the proximity of the ocean bluffs, children and pets are not permitted.

You will understand why guests call this home 'Desire' and why they all tell us they will be back next year!

Delightful

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was delightful and the highlight of my trip. The view from the back deck and living room is exquisite. Sunsets were spectacular. After a day of exploring the coast returning here for a relaxing hot tub was just perfect. The cottage is clean with great furnishings and careful attention to amenities. The bottle of champagne was a bonus. Highly recommend a stay at Desire in Albion.

Unwind

  • 4 of 5

Great place to unwind. Killer view, comfy bed, well supplied for all we needed. Would rate 5 stars if just a bit further from hwy ( could hear traffic on bridge) and screens on doors would be nice to enjoy lovely air after dark. After seeing a rather large raccoon looking for goodies the first night- we did not leave doors open after dark. Great place to unwind !

Clean, cozy & amazing views

  • 5 of 5

What an idyllic spot, on the top of a bluff overlooking the rugged coastline of the Pacific ocean. The comfortable deck chairs and the ocean waves rolling in were great for coffee in the morning or a drink in the evening. The hot tub was very clean and you could see the ocean while you soak. Everything inside is clean and neat. Albion is 7 miles south of Mendocino, a quaint little town with restaurants, coffee shops, a grocery store, and many little shops. The hike along the coastline, right across from Main St. is a "definitely don't miss". Many other hikes, beaches, and towns are in easy driving distance. Bring a light jacket as it gets cool during much of the day. It is also worth mentioning that we didn't have cell phone service at the house (did in Mendocino) and the internet is painfully slow.

Absolutely a surreal location on the coast.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to find a bottle of champagne waiting for us right inside the front door. The first night we barbecued a steak on the grill and enjoyed the view. The rest was a blur. Such an amazing getaway. Rent this house if its available! We're definitely going to try to return next year!
