Delightful Ocean Front Suite Across the Bay from Mendocino - The Cove Suite

Bedrooms 1
Space 675 sq. ft.
Property type studio
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Our reviews speak much about the us, we are striving for the best experience.

The Cove Suite is located directly across the Bay from the quaint village of Mendocino. Just a short mile south of Mendocino this outstanding location is set on the oceanfront bluffs of Chapman Point, a natural curve of land that reaches out into the Pacific and a twin to the Mendocino Headlands. The Mendocino Bay setting has dramatic views of the ocean and a direct view of the Mendocino Village across the Bay.

The Cove Suite has a luxurious bath with a spa tub, deck with dramatic ocean views and a cozy wood-burning fireplace.

*** Make no mistake on this property, the view is the best on the north coast, here is the general theme of all our reviews, and we have been told on many occasions " Pictures don't begin to depict the value of the view from this property"

Oh, my....this place is like a dream come true !!! The most obviously wonderful thing about it is the location. This is not, simply "water front" or "water views". This is a studio that is HANGING OUT over the ocean. No need to open the sliding doors to the deck to hear the will hear it regardless ! I swear this is the best view I've ever had, and I have stayed in some pretty fabulous places. The studio was perfect for me and my dog. I am not sure what it is (although I'm going to ask) but this was the most comfortable bed EVER ! There is a wood stove for ambience and a little extra warmth (although the regular heat was more than adequate) and the hosts provided WOOD ! I have stayed in places with wood stoves before but I have NEVER had wood provided ! Also, I was here the first two weeks of January and there were a lot of rainstorms, the little town of Mendocino lost power several times but Dan and Laura, (my hosts), have a generator, something that made me feel pretty smug as I looked out across the bay to see Mendocino in the dark. Dan and Laura are EXCEPTIONAL as hosts and as people. I had lovely conversations with them and during the storms, Dan checked in with me to make sure the generator was coming on as it was supposed to. They made sure I had everything I needed and since I was there two weeks, they even had the place "spruced up", arranging for the cleaners to come by with fresh towels and sheets..chocolates on the really is in the details ! This place and it's hosts are really the best I've experienced. If you are traveling in the Mendocino area, don't miss this one. REALLY. DON'T MISS IT !!!!!! Thank you, Dan and Laura ! I will be back for sure !!!



The Cove suite is the downstairs unit and is equipped with a small fridge, a sink, a toaster, a coffee pot and a microwave. This suite is the perfect solution for those who enjoy eating out and want to sample top restaurants in the Mendocino area.

This house has 4G cell phone service. We also have Comcast high Speed internet and full HD Direct TV. We list this as many vacation rentals in this area do not have any connectivity for phones or internet.

(There are two private suites available at Cypress Cove priced individually; See VRBO listing # 687078 The Pacifica Suite for more information).

There isn’t anything better than the suites at Cypress Cove for your next romantic getaway!

Beautiful property, great location, awesome view

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for for allowing us to stay in your property. It was just the decompress and regroup weekend we needed. Perfect location right on the bluff...what a view! Very bright with all the windows. If you haven't stayed here and are thinking about it, just do it! This is the second time we have stayed at this property, enjoyed it just as much this time as we did the first. Thanks Dan and Laura for the perfect spot. Margaret and Rudy.

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable place to stay and watch the changing weather on the California Coast. This cozy suite was great for relaxing and watching the birds and surf. It is close to all the things the Mendocino area has to offer. Would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Mendocino for years to celebrate my birthday. This paradise was the best place of all and we've stayed at some great places: Little River Inn's Oceanside luxury cottages and The Heritage House. The views are spectacular, bed extremely comfy with luxurious sheets, and the suite very cozy and romantic. We look forward to going back. Only thing that would make it even better would be a hot tub on the deck.
