The Blue Heron is premier vacation home on the rugged coast of Mendocino. This home is the perfect place for your family reunion, a gathering of friends, or as a romantic getaway for just the two of you.
Situated minutes from Mendocino Village, this remodeled home is tastefully appointed with high-vaulted ceilings, large picture windows, a wood burning stone fireplace, granite and marble countertops, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, Viking stove with six burners and a convection oven, and a second fireplace above the master whirlpool bath!
The two story open floor plan promotes communication between the kitchen, dining, living, and entertainment areas. The large well-stocked kitchen offers all the amenities you could want. Old and new kids alike can escape downstairs to the recreation room and play a board game, watch a movie, surf the wireless high-speed internet, or play one of 100 games on the commercial arcade machine.
Whitewater vistas are afforded from almost every room. Spend the day observing the abundant wildlife through the picture windows or watching the Pacific Ocean crash onto the rocks. Relax in the outdoor hot tub and listen to the sounds of the ocean while you gaze up at the stars. Watch one of the many movies provided on the widescreen TV with surround sound, play a board game, start a puzzle, or simply enjoy a good book.
If you prefer to venture out; stroll or bike to nearby Russian Gulch State Park with its lush fern gullies, small beach, and waterfalls. Mendocino Village is only a three minute drive south with wonderful shops and some of the finest cuisine in California. Historic Fort Bragg, just ten minutes north, is home to the famous Skunk Train, miles of oceanfront walking, biking, and horseback riding.
Enjoy the best that the North Coast has to offer in this Mendocino Gem. Don't let the chance slip away for you to reserve this wonderful home before it books up for the season.

About Saundra & Eric
Eric and I spent our first vacation together in Mendocino almost twenty years ago and it quickly became one of our very favorite places to be. We began our adventures in local B&Bs but soon found that we enjoyed the freedom and privacy of vacation rental homes. In 2004 we were fortunate to purchase a newly remodeled home near Russian Gulch State Park and dubbed her The Blue Heron. Taking the best of our experiences we strive to provide the perfect place for your vacation, retreat, reunion, or romantic getaway.
Saundra & Eric purchased this House in 2004
Why Saundra & Eric chose Mendocino
Getting away from the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area is just a short drive away. We both have a strong desire to be close to the ocean and to be surrounded by all of the beauty and nature that Mendocino has to offer.
What makes this House unique
We enjoy walking to the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse, hiking the waterfall trail in Russian Gulch, dining in some of California's finest restaurants, shopping in the village, meandering along the bluff tops, and spending time in the local Gallery Bookshop. But most of all we enjoy sitting at home watching the ocean churn and the wildlife that visits our property; wild turkeys, deer, osprey, rabbits, quail, and if there's a storm, we watch that too. Just to be there reading a book or taking a nap is wonderful!

One of our Best Vacations-House was Awesome
This was really one of our best vacations. Having rented a house in Tahoe a year ago that had a weird musty smell, we were leery to try our hand in the home rental game again. So glad we took the chance. Turned out to be one of our best vacations. This house is fantastic with lots of room and a fabulous view. It isn't a direct ocean view with a wide open ocean but easily visible and definitely could hear it. We only had 3 nights there and wish we had booked it longer. Even opted to stay in one night; having pizza and watching movies instead of hitting the local spots in Mendocino or Ft Bragg....that's how much we loved the house. The owner was AMAZING and even called us on the first night to make sure we got in ok and see if we had any questions. Some of the absolute best service....far exceeded our expectations. Definitely planning a return trip.
A Most Enjoyable Stay
Our family of five, 2 parents and 3 adult children, had a lovely time at the Blue Heron House.
There are many trees partially obstructing what COULD be a most amazing view, but the trees are lovely. The hot tub was a draw for us.
Just what we needed
Beautiful, spacious, very clean & comfortable home. On a dead end street with no traffic, and no noise. Filtered view of the ocean. Close to town & activities, but secluded if one just wants silence. House sits alone without surrounding landscaping. Saw our first black phoebe on the deck, & swallows had built a nest in the deck overhang. Nice, she as we are birders. Recommend highly.
Good Location for a Gathering
My family had a good time. There was plenty of space for us. Not as good an ocean view that I thought we would have. The inside furnishings need some TLC. All the shower heads need to be replaced. Plenty of items were provided that we didn't expect. I guess for the price I expected a little more.
Very nice home for a relaxing getaway
This home is very nice and clean. The property is at the end of a private road and very quiet. Sitting in the hot tub and listening to the waves crash into the shore is heaven. Great place for just a couple or a whole family.
