House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Looking for a pleasing respite from the hustle and bustle? Look no further than this spacious, upgraded four-bedroom Mendocino Coast vacation rental. The home's spacious grounds offer myriad outdoor entertaining possibilities. You'll never want to leave!

Situated outside of Fort Bragg, just steps from the coast, this two-story home is within walking distance of the 400-acre Jughandle Reserve. Outdoor activities abound and you'll be hard-pressed to find a more relaxing spot!

Enter through the main door and spy a vaulted ceiling overlooking a cozy living area complete with a brick fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows. Head to the country kitchen and whip up some delicious meals. White wood cupboards hide plenty of kitchen accouterments.

Enjoy a cool night in the outdoor hot tub, play croquet or badminton on the lawn, or fire up the gas grill and enjoy a cookout. Ping-Pong enthusiasts will love the table in the garage. Want some delicious apples? Pick a ripe piece of fruit from one of the numerous apple trees nearby. Dogs are welcome, so make sure to bring him along! (An additional nightly fee applies)

Downtown Fort Bragg is close by and offers myriad activities throughout the year. Glass Beach at MacKerricher State Park delights crowds, young and old. The Skunk Train transports guests 40 miles up the coast through redwoods. The Guest House Museum enthralls visitors and the C.V. Starr Aquatic Center boasts an eight-lane pool and water slides.

Whatever your pleasure, this gorgeous Northern California coast vacation rental will surely delight the entire party, whether friends or family!

About Vacasa of the Northern California Coast

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Very nice Mendocino vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Grey Whale. Clean, comfortable, lots of bedrooms, hot tub, close to the ocean and the numerous state parks in the Fort Bragg area.

Cute house, great setting, cooking &amp; heating are a problem

  • 4 of 5

The house comfortably fit our 5 staff members and served our purposes for a staff retreat. There were however some issues trying to cook and keep the place warm. The toaster oven doesn't work, regular oven couldn't get hot enough, heating ducts badly need cleaning, wood stove needs dry wood to burn, and hot tub jets don't work. Also important to tell guests there is no cell service there.

The Grey Whale

  • 3 of 5

This house is great for a lot of people or a large family.<br />

It wasn't one of my favorite places to stay. The decor was kind of outdated....plastic plants, ugh...The beds were really hard and uncomfortable, and regulating the heat in the house was difficult.

11 family members gathered and a wonderful time for Thanksgiving. No need to bring any cooking equipment nor extra bedding! The ocean air has caused some rust issues inside, but no mold issues were found (a concern for a few of us with asthma). Otherwise clean and a beautiful place to stay. Hope we can get together here again.
