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 North Coast

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.

I was impressed to see bath towels, bath robes and beach towels available for our use. The house was very spacious. The views were great. We really loved the private beach. Will remember this trip forever.

A perfect getaway at Irish Beach

  • 5 of 5

We love staying in this home. It has a beautiful view of the ocean, is just across the street from the pond, and close to the private beach. This is our second time staying in this home. We have been coming up to Irish Beach for over thirty years with our family. The home is very comfortable and well stocked. The only thing I would suggest is bringing a non-stick frying pan. All the pans are stainless steel. We love this place and I am sure we will be staying here many more times in the future. Perfect place to take the family!!

Lovely house, beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

Zachary was accommodating and responsive to questions via email. His house is very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for a lovely weekend in one of our favorite spots on the CA coast. Beds were comfortable, kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed the fireplace and hot tub. We will definitely be back!

Absolutely Exceptional

  • 5 of 5

Our stay on July21 thru Jul26 2016 was Absolutely Exceptional. We could not ask for more. The home was clean beyond expectation. The itself has a perfect floor plan for two families and the dog. Beautiful courtyard and extremely spacious both inside and out. We loved being directly across the road from Pomo Lake with its walking trail, simply breathtaking. The home is well taken care of and stocked with everything you might need. We had a couple of deer in the yard the morning we checked out to bid us safe travels. We intend to return to this Wonderful place called Irish Beach Retreat. Thank you So very much , Zachery. We were truly Blessed with our stay.

Beautiful Location!

  • 4 of 5

Zach's home is on the coast, just South of Mendocino. We enjoyed the ocean view from the kitchen and the deck. The house is clean and organized. The kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms are well supplied. Zach was very helpful and made the reservation process very simple. We enjoyed the short drive down the hill to the private beach to watch the sunset and play with our dog. Zach has compiled a binder with all sorts of very helpful information about the house, amenities, ideas to how to enjoy the area, and instructions on what to do before check out, VERY HELPFUL. We would love to go back soon!

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

This is a great vacation rental. I stayed there with my family (6 adults) for 7 days and we all had a wonderful time. The house was extremely clean and well organized. You can tell that the owner takes pride in ownership. All 3 bedrooms were good sized with comfortable beds. The kitchen was very well stocked with cooking utensils and sharp knives.

I would recommend for anyone who wants to get away and relax.

Zack the owner was very good about responding via email with any questions that we had.

I look forward to my next stay.

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.
