Manchester House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Located on the beautiful Northern California coast between the historic town of Mendocino (30 miles/48 km North) and the artist community of Gualala (20 miles/32 km South), this extraordinary 2-bath, 3-bedroom retreat -- all on one level – features incredible Pacific Ocean views from virtually every room. See Point Arena Light House, open meadows filled with wildlife, and magical sunsets. Built by a well-known artist, the home features multiple pieces of original artwork below cathedral ceilings.

Bring food and drink to create a special recipe in the well-equipped kitchen which features new appliances, including a refrigerator, microwave, and range with a convection oven. Enjoy a meal in the adjoining dining area with an ocean view.

The master and second bedrooms are in separate wings of the house, ensuring privacy whenever you want it. The master opens to a deck with ocean views, has a Cal King bed, a reading area, and ample closet space. The expansive master bath offers a huge two-person all tile shower. The second bedroom has ocean views, a king bed (can be configured as twins), many shelves of books, and a large closet. The second bathroom is next door and features a deep infinity tub/shower with fantastic ocean views.

A third bedroom/office has a queen futon, a desk & printer, and a full wall of closet space.

We welcome children, but the home is not childproofed and some original artwork features tasteful female nudes.

The large, comfortable living room overlooks the ocean, has mid-century modern furniture, an electric fireplace (easily removed if you prefer wood or pressed logs), board games, and a flat screen TV with Netflix and Amazon Prime shows & movies available to easily stream (just press a button) via fast, unlimited internet. An HDMI cable is provided so you can connect to your computer. There is no 'regular' television service.

Take an easy drive up the coast to Mendocino and Fort Bragg or south to the Point Arena light house. Enjoy the sounds of breaking waves, see migrating whales, walk or drive to the private 8-mile beach or Pomo Lake, visit Anderson Valley wineries, sample fare at remarkable restaurants & bakeries. Or do nothing...just relax.

Forget something? No worries! A well-stocked grocery store is located in Manchester, 4 miles/6.5 km south. Want a little excitement? Visit the casino/restaurant, tour the lighthouse, or take in a movie in the town of Point Arena, 8 miles/13 km south.

Come visit, we'd love to hear from you!

About Karla Simmons

I worked in publishing for over 20 years so my homes are full of books. Fiction, non-fiction, travel, short stories...I love 'em all. I've lived in the Bay Area much of my life but have also spent time in Paris (4th arrondissement) where I learned to love food, art, and cooking. Sharing my home with guests gives me great pleasure and offers me an opportunity to meet wonderful people from all over the world.

Karla Simmons purchased this house in 2012

Why Karla Simmons chose North Coast

We bought this home because of the calm, the ever-changing views of the ocean, and for its wonderful art and architecture. We live in the Bay Area, which we love, but getting away from the hustle and bustle soothes us.

What makes this house unique

The views and the sounds of the magical, wild Pacific Ocean!
