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.

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

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

Quaint and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Such a gorgeous view looking out over the bluff from inside the house, on the deck or in the hot tub. The house and location has such charm. We were able to cook our own meals in the kitchen and on the BBQ. This was our second stay at Desire and we plan on going back again.

A perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Desire. Although the weather was very windy and we could only occasionally sit out on the deck, the views of the ocean and coastline from the house were spectacular, the house was very well equipped (I especially appreciated the coffee grinder and beans), and the views of the sunset from the hot tub were great. We also enjoyed the beautiful hikes in nearby state parks and the restaurants in Mendocino. We hope to return on our next visit to northern California.

Fabulous Nest With Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

The place is absolutely lovely, with a great first impression as you walk in the door and find champagne and sweet smelling soap as a welcome gift. The kitchen is well stocked and has basic spices and sundries so that you don't have to buy every little thing at the store. The bed is big and comfortable. The pictures of the hot tub don't do it justice... you can sit and soak and see the view for miles in a very private location, with trees sheltering you from the wind. We had a great romantic weekend there!

desire albion mendocino

  • 4 of 5

The view was absolutely breath taking!!!

The bed very comfortable.

We thought the place could have been cleaner, lots of dust. Also we had ant visitors.

The hot tub was a good temperature and clean but only one corner of jets worked and they were not very strong and the top out of the water. The cover was very heavy and difficult to maneuver.

The fire place was wonderful, made the place very cozy.

All in all we had a memorable stay at Desire.

Outstanding ocean views. Very comfortabke home

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about it. Plenty of things to do in the area. You could also choose to stay home looking at the views, listening to the ocean, play some board games or watch TV if you prefer..
