About Holly Kuchar

I owned a equipment & party rental company for 41 years. I retired and married an amazing Canadian. We live in Victoria for 6 mos. and spend 2-3 months in Fort Bragg in a little apartment on the property and travel the world in search of inspiration and wonder. My husband is an artist and I have a perpetual state of wanderlust. We are Swing Dancers and deeply love this community.

Holly Kuchar purchased this house in 1977

Why Holly Kuchar chose North Coast

This property is magical. This property is the first place I slept when I came to Fort Bragg and I did not own it for 5 years. There has been a child born here, a sweat lodge at the beach, family reunions, company parties and numerous weddings. It is constantly recharged with love and joy. I view myself as a guardian with a sincere desire to share the property with others and one hand it down to my grandchildren.

What makes this house unique

The property is near town and off Highway 1. It borders the Mendocino Botanical Gardens on the North with a private lane. There are 4 ponds, an ocean meadow,bluffs and a private cove with a year round stream. It perfect for a large gathering and has electricity and water to a tent pad and plenty of room for parking. There is go Abalone diving. Walk to the point for sunsets, play if the meadow, enjoy all the property has to offer.

Holly's Beach House

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place! The property suited the various needs of our large extended family perfectly. We were fortunate to enjoy some beautiful January weather, so we took walks down to the beach and played games on the lawn. The hot tub and fire pit were just right in the evenings. Everything was as described on VRBO, though one has to visit to truly appreciate the beautiful spot. Both the owner, Holly and caretaker Charlotte were very helpful and friendly. I would absolutely recommend this property to friends. In fact our family has already talked about making a return trip.

Thanks for a wonderful experience!

What an incredible property with a private beach! We rented this for my sisters wedding two years ago and again for a weekend getaway with friends. Large kitchen, 4 bedrooms and room to camp outdoors also! Highly recommend!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had our reception at Holly's Ocean Meadow. To say that it was a fantastic property for any event would not do it justice. This was a dream come true for my husband and I. We had a small reception with 5 young children. The kids could not have been more overjoyed by the many ponds and private beach to play around. The bluff has the most beautiful view of the ocean you could imagine. Sitting on the wood bench by the bluff and just watching, listening to the ocean, that was one of the highlights of our weekend. The home itself is gorgeous. As other reviewers have said, the pictures really don't show just how magnificent this home is. The rooms are bright and welcoming with large window to look out to the ocean bluff and surrounding woods. We are very private people and this property gave us the privacy we wanted for our special day. Holly's Ocean Meadow made my wedding day something straight out of a dream. Thank you!

The pictures posted on this site don't do this property justice. The house and it's view are amazing. It was a perfect place for my mom's celebration of life.
