Definitely did not want to leave! Tanya thought of pretty much everything, down to beach chairs for Irish Beach and bird seed for the birds! It was a great way to explore the fabled Mendocino Coast, as Manchester seems pretty centrally located.

As is always the case in this kind of travel - do your research! There's not a lot in the way of fancy restaurants or that particular kind of experience, so luckily this place is well-appointed. There is a good market nearby, so we got supplies on the way, and had some tasty meals at "home" our whole stay. The dining area is warm and inviting for just that kind of thing.

Also, the outside deck is wonderfully set up for a small dog, and there was even a little toy. Very cute, our shih-tzu loved the place, and was very happy!

Tanya was easy to reach for the one little glitch, which was entirely my bad (I missed reading an email). She also checked in to make sure all was well (and because she wanted to give me an alternate contact since she was doing a bit of traveling herself).

All in all, wonderful place, well-done, in a great location. Definitely coming back!

Beautiful, comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our time at the Ocean Tree House. It was clean and comfortable and Tanya made sure all the amenities we would need were there. I loved that the cleaning supplies were all "green," and she has an amazing tea collection! My children loved feeding the birds and watching them every morning along with the deer, quail and bunnies that are around. The deck was perfect for taking in the beautiful surroundings and we spent every day on the beach which was just a short drive across the street. We'll always look back fondly on our time there!

Comfortable and tidy home for a Mendocino Coast vacation. An excellent deal!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable and tidy rental. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, pots, pans, plates, etc. Sometimes rentals don't have enough items for you to truly use the place as home base but we had no problem here. The beds and pillows were very comfortable -- not just the cheapest things just to get by. This was also the cleanest rental I've ever been in. Tanya was a fantastic host, checking in to make sure all was well and her house instructions are very thorough. The private beach was great and it is just a couple of minutes down the road. You really don't need to venture out very far -- everything you need for a great vacation is all right there. We still went to Point Arena to their amazing bakery (Franny's Cup & Saucer) and Schooner Gulch Beach. The kids had a lot of fun putting seed in Tanya's bird feeder and watching the Bluejays and Woodpeckers feasting. I highly recommend this place.

For our needs the house, amenities and location were perfect...feed the birds and explore the beach!!

The 'stale (i.e. moldy)' air that greeted us as we opened the front door, could have been tempered by screens on the west windows or a front screen door that would have provided a cross breeze to 'clear the air.'

If the windows were opened the day before we arrived, the air in the house certainly would have said "come on in and breath deep".

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry you were not greeted with more inviting air, I can certainly understand that is not the greeting you had hoped for. We use eco-friendly, non-toxic cleaning supplies and products in our house which typically do not have perfumes or dyes. I discovered last week that a new wood floor cleaner we use throughout the house, ironically "free and clear" has this stale scent smell to it as described by the reviewer. I noticed this myself for the first time when I walked in and was able to trace it back to this product. Rest assured there is absolutely nothing 'moldy' in the house. Fortunately as noted by the reviewer, with some airing out the scent dissipated quickly. Needless to say, I will be looking for a new non-toxic wood floor cleaner.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Me, my wife and our dog enjoyed a wonderful 4th of July weekend at the Ocean Tree House. The house was clean. Everything worked great. Roku, great sound system to play music off your phone, and DVDs. The gas grill on the deck was great for dinner. Bathtub has jacuzzi jets. Not a lot to do in Irish Beach but this is a great central location if you are willing to travel up or down the coast. We particularly enjoyed Mendocino Headlands State Park and Gualala Point Regional Park. Both dog friendly. The drive inland on the 128 through Navarro River Redwoods is also stunning.
