About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Home with Hot Tub and Fireplace

The Irish Beach Retreat is a comfortable, modern, and functional home surrounded by open space with ocean and mountain views. This pet-friendly home can accommodate up to seven people for family vacations, but offers the peace and quite for a rejuvenating retreat or romantic get-away. Enjoy the jacuzzi spa on the back deck, while gazing across open space as the sun sets over the Pacific Ocean, or wait until nighttime and take a soak under the stars.

This newly remodeled home is within easy walking distance to the beach, or you can use the private gate pass and drive to within a few steps of the sand. The house is located across the street from Pomo Lake, walking trails, and wildlife viewing.

A fully functional kitchen -with ocean views- and adjoining dining area await your arrival. Bring your food, drinks, and special recipes. A gas BBQ also is available for your use.

The master bedroom is in a separate wing, with a quiet reading area, and french doors to the back deck. A large master bathroom includes a generous walk-in shower and ample closet space.

The large, comfortable living room off the kitchen and dining area includes a fireplace, flat-screen TV (with Direct TV) and DVD player. Bring your own music to plug into the surround sound system. Wireless internet is available for your use.

Two additional bedrooms are accessed from the living area, and separated by the second full bathroom. One bedroom has a queen bed and french doors leading to the front courtyard. The other bedroom has a bunk bed (twin above and double below).

It's an easy drive up the coast to Mendocino and Fort Bragg, or south to the Point Arena light house and the new CA Coastal National Monument. There is a full-service grocery store in Manchester (4 miles south) and a casino/restaurant in Point Arena (8 miles south).

The Irish Beach Retreat is the perfect place to do everything, or to simply relax and rejuvenate. This home also caters to anyone looking for a quiet retreat that will allow you to complete that important project, while staying connected at the level you desire.

About Zachary Hymanson

We are native Californians that have lived and worked throughout much of the State. My wife grew up on a ranch in the Sierra foothills. I grew up in the Bay Area. We currently live in the Tahoe basin.

Zachary Hymanson purchased this house in 2013

Why Zachary Hymanson chose Manchester

We have always loved the north coast, and owning the Irish Beach Retreat is a dream-come-true. We have traveled extensively and know that few places offer the beauty and opportunities you will find in Irish Beach and the Mendocino coast.

What makes this house unique

This is truly a magical place. Blue-water ocean views, peace and quite, easy access to an excellent beach, and close to a variety of activities. The Irish Beach Retreat offers all the amenities for that special family vacation, or the quite solitude for a relaxing get-away. This home has been thoughtfully upgraded to provide all modern conveniences for those wanting a retreat that allows them to stay as connected as they want.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We LOVED the place! We had a wonderful time and hope to return in the future. Thanks again!

Irish Beach in Manchester

  • 5 of 5

Great time at the house....very private and very quiet....just what we were looking for. Irish Beach is across the street in which you can walk forever and sometimes never see another person. I loved to listen to the owls at night while sitting in the hot tub and the owner was a pleasure to work with.

Norcal Coastal Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful, peaceful coast getaway.

The incredible night skys from the hot tub blow your mind.

Feel as though you can touch the Milky Way!

The walk to & on Irish Beach fabulous, biggest drift wood beach ever.

Being a paved road down a steep canyon, handicap accessible a big plus.

What a location in a great house.

Will definitely be back!

Exactly how I would design my own Mendocino house.

  • 5 of 5

Great location - secluded but still in a nice community. Large backyard and a great deck with a hot tub, perfect for enjoying the morning or evening. Quick walk to the beach (it's an amazing beach). The house has modern appointments and it's easy to want to lounge around the living room all day. Extremely clean and comfortable with more than enough space for a large family. Super dog friendly, which is a major plus! Looking forward to booking and staying there in the future!

Irish Beach
Car: recommended

Irish Beach is a rural community of homes located about 40 minutes south of Mendocino, and about 2.5 hours from Santa Rosa. You can stop and enjoy the wineries on highways 101 and 128 as you make your way out the coast. Access the beach at the State Parks day-use areas: Navarro River or in Elk. Visit the historic Point Arena lighthouse, Manchester State Park, and the new CA Coastal National Monument, all about 10 minutes south of Irish Beach. Horseback riding along Manchester State Beach is 5 minutes to the south (reservations required). Spend the day at Irish Beach, only a few minutes from where you are staying. There is excellent tide-pooling to the north, and miles of sandy beach to the south. Bring your kids, your dog, your lunch, and a kite. There is a full-service grocery store in Manchester (~4 miles south on Highway 1). The working town of Point Arena (~8 miles south) has a library, movie theater, and casino/restaurant. The Mendocino village is 40 minutes to the north with shops, restaurants, and the beautiful Mendocino headlands. Or continue north to Fort Bragg and visit Glass Beach and Noyo Harbor. The rhododendron gardens are spectacular in the spring.
