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

Bedrooms Studio
Space 675 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

The Pacifica Suite is located on a bluff overlooking Mendocino Bay


Reservations for winter are HERE NOW, last year we were very busy in Nov, Dec, Jan and Feb. If the OCEAN view is the reason you come to Mendo, watching the spectacle otherwise known as “Mother Nature” is you’re first thought, review the winter pictures. Book before the storms come as they provide the best view anywhere. Mendo loses power at times….. We have a whole house generator to keep you powered up 24/7.

*** 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"


(There are two private suites available at Cypress Cove priced individually; See VRBO listing # 676824 for "The Cove Suite" for more information), Also check out our website at

We have stayed in both units 2 times now. It would be impossible to tell you which we liked best because we LOVE them both! Renting from Dan & Laura is always a pleasure they are so helpful and pleasant to deal with. The place was spotless (as usual) and the view was even better than these pictures show! There was plenty of firewood and a we made full use of it during the cool evenings. We stayed for 4 nights but wished we could stay for more. During our stay we only left one time and that was to get groceries and grab a bite to eat, because it was so cozy. Granted we have been to Mendocino a few times now so we had previously made the trip to a few nice places to eat, nearby Fort Bragg, to Glass Beach, all the cute downtown shops and art galleries, the private beach, and the dog friendly river just down the street otherwise we would have taken advantage of the close location to all of these places. There really is no better location than this it's so close to everything but feels like it's on its own island. You really have to experience it yourself to believe it.....We will be back.


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

The Pacifica suite is upstairs and has a full kitchen, equipped with a fridge, an oven and stove, a sink, a toaster, a coffee pot and a microwave. This suite is ideal for those preferring to cook while enjoying the stunning Oceanfront views.

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

Nothing better!

  • 5 of 5

Let me save you some time - I did a lot of searching (and researching) and finally settled on this place for the weekend. It's. Perfect. It's just a few minutes from town, has better views than any other lodging option, and is perfectly kept. There's a fireplace so you can put on a fire and listen to (and watch) the ocean from bed. Oh, and it's dog friendly. Pinch me, I've found heaven.

p.s. owners were responsive and easy to deal with - a total A+ experience.

Wonderful location. Exactly as promised!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay while visiting Mendocino. Pictures of the town and ocean just don't do it justice. Great to have coffee and creamers waiting upon your arrival. We would definitely stay again.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

Far exceeded our expectations. From the minute we walked in the door we felt we had arrived at a very special place. The view, the sparkling clean suite. The owners thought of everything; from toaster to large fluffy bath towels. We hated to leave and definitely plan to be back in March. We've stayed at most of the high-end motels and hotels in Mendocino over the past thirty-years; Cypress Cove far exceeded all of the them.

Pictures don't do it justice

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to Mendocino for almost 25 years, staying at several diffent places, all of which have been very nice. Cypress Cove is by far the best. We stayed in the Pacifica Suite. The views of Mendocino and the ocean are spectacular. The amenities of the Pacifica Suite are perfect for a short or long stay, (we stayed for 7 days). Our Golden Retriever loved being here. (He loved going out on the deck, looking at the ocean, smelling the ocean breeze and taking a nap). The beach less than a quarter mile away, under the bridge which leads to Mendocino, is beautiful and heaven for people and dogs alike. The owners Dan and Laura were amazing to rent from. We will definitely be coming back and have recommended Cypress Cove to many of our friends.

Amazing Mendocino getaway with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

This little place is great for a weekend away from it all. You feel like you've got your own little private hideaway off Hwy 1. Watching the waves crash onto the shore from bed? Being 2 minutes away from shops, beaches, and quality restaurants? Dog-friendly? Yes please!

Dan and Laura, thank you for being so attentive and sharing your wonderful home with us. We'll be back one day!
