Comfortable, cozy, quiet, lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

Heather is a perfect host--kind, considerate, helpful and knowledgeable. Her cottage is in a lovely setting behind the larger main house, situated so the guests have an unblocked view to the street. There is no water view, but the headlands and Main Street are just a short walk. The Mendocino public library and Mendocino Arts Center are very close. The cottage interior is nice, bed is comfy, bath is fairly spacious w good hot water. Kitchenette is fine. Mendocino is a lovely town and this is the perfect place to stay while visiting. We will always stay here if we return.

Very private and quiet! Close to the ocean; within walking distance to shops and restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay in this cottage . In the evening we sat on the front porch to take in the garden and fresh air, just beautiful! Heather, had a tin of delicious chocolates on the counter to welcome us. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you Heather!

So convenient and charming.

Loved staying at Heather's bungalow in the heart of Mendocino. Very convenient to walk to the bluffs, restaurants, and shops. Accomodations were comfortable and my husband especially appreciated the chocolates that Heather supplied. We had a lovely time.

Perfect Cottage for a Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided on a last minute trip to Mendocino and found this property on VRBO that looked perfect. We drove up on Friday night after work and unfortunately hit some very bad weather and on the back windy roads to Mendocino it was slow going. I had let Heather know that we might be late due to traffic out of the city, however, we ended up being very late and Heather waited up for us and let us in to a the cozy cottage behind her home. I felt so bad about keeping her up but she was completely gracious and helpful.

The cottage itself is perfect for a weekend away. It's a studio with a comfortable king size bed, sitting area with table and chairs and a well equipped bathroom. It also has a coffee maker, microwave, sink and minifridge in a kitchenette area. We typically stay at places with a kitchen because we like to cook but this was so last minute that we didn't plan anything and ended up wandering around and findings great places to eat in the area. I would definitely stay here again for the weekend.

The location is perfect - walking distance from everything in downtown Mendocino. We had dinner at a lovely spot a few blocks away and got coffee and walked on the coastal trails each morning after getting up. The wineries in Philo are a must visit and we drove up to Fort Bragg to check out the brewery and were surprised by the cute downtown.

Heather has a beautiful garden and is an excellent host. We love visiting peaceful Mendocino and will definitely be back!
