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 wines while watching the whales and seals play in the ocean. Please enjoy a complimentary bottle of wine from Terra Vigna.

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.

Cancellations Policy: If cancellation is made 30 days or more in advance of checkin date, guest will be refunded 100%. If cancellation is made between 30-14 days in advance, guest will be refunded 50%. If cancellation notice is given within less than 14 days, there will be no refund.

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

This, one of a kind house is an ideal getaway for a honeymoon, anniversary, or that much needed and deserved time off. You will understand why guests call this home 'Desire' and why they all tell us they will be back next year!

Very cute cabin with easy access and a great view.

  • 4 of 5

Communication with the owner was good via email, everything was as promised. Would be nice if the shrubbery next to the deck was trimmed back a bit to allow a better view from the deck. A couple nice chairs on the upper deck along with a working light would be appreciated. The sofa could use a update as the cushions are flaking. Overall I would recommend this cabin to others, some updating of the furniture would make this a five star.

Very private & amazing views

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time staying here. It is a gated neighborhood which gave an extra level of comfort & security. Very private & quiet when we were there mid August/ mid week for 4 nights. The home is very welcoming, clean and comfortable. We would love to return someday. Important to note the only bathroom is on the main floor and bedroom is up the very cool spiral staircase. The views are incredible!! Home owner was quickly responsive to any questions including restaurant recommendations. BOOK IT & ENJOY!!

Great view. Very convenient.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I attended a 3-day wedding just north of Elk, and we used Desire as our "home" base. The house is very comfortable with large rooms. Exceptional views. Comfortable bed. Great shower. Clean hot tub. What more could one want!

Beautifaul Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had an amazing time while staying at Desire! The views were amazing. The temperature was perfect for the hot hut at night and the nearby parks were close enough to enjoy every day if we had chosen to do so. Most days, we were content to relax watch the ocean, while spending some much needed "us time" together. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality and the chance to vacation in such a unique and relaxing location.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We make a 9-11 hour drive to get here - sometimes through rush hour traffic in two major metropolitan areas - and it's our third visit, so that should tell you something. We never get tired of the incredible ocean view, right off the deck, and the sounds of the waves breaking in the cove. With the exception of one trip to the supermarket, we spent the entire time in the cottage or on the deck reading and relaxing. In past years we've taken some of the fantastic hikes in the area. Can't beat this place for relaxation and rejuvenation.
