About the property

The Pacifica Suite is located on a bluff overlooking Mendocino Bay

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.

*** 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"

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.

Absolutely breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect for a great getaway! Coming for the Bay area it was just perfect to be away from towns, but close enough that we were able to do all the shopping and dining we wanted without hassle. Just a perfect getaway with breathtaking views and peace and quiet.

Amazing place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

The studio suite was great for my wife (6 mos) pregnant and myself. It had such an amazing view of the water and by about 9/10 it's warm enough to leave the slider open and listen to the waves crash on the beach. Finding it was easy. The owners were helpful and very nice (only spoke through several emails). The jacuzzi tub is life changing, and so is the small fire place. At night we started a small fire and listened to the waves crash. Mendocino is a couple minutes away for shipping etc. It's very small town, but quaint and beautiful. Plenty of places nearby to access the beaches. 15 minutes away is fort bragg which has a few breweries and other attractions to check out. I am struggling to think of a single negative for this property. It was just perfect for what we were looking for.
