About the property

Charming 20 X 30 Divided Studio With Open Ceilings, Beautiful Ocean View!

The Village Suite, is located a block away from the wedding venue Crown Hall, Portuguese Beach, and a few blocks from the Mendocino Art Center. Walk up a brick path to your private accommodation and a dutch door entry. Just inside is a fully stocked kitchen with a new 4 burner gas stove which is up against a wall that divides part of this large studio in half. A new w/d is in a closet and there is also a new fridge in the kitchen. To your right facing south, is a large picture window with a beautiful view overlooking state park and the Mendo Bay. There is Dish TV, DVD player and stereo in a cabinet, a love seat, coffee table, a large lazyboy chair with massage features and a gas fireplace. There are also books and DVD's for you to enjoy! A table for two, a comfy queen bed, and bathroom tub/shower occupy the other half of the room. A Webber gas BBQ and charcoal BBQ's are in the backyard. In the front of Village Suite are two Adirondack chairs looking out south to the bay. Village Suite is walking distance to everything and yet is not situated in a commercial district of the village, so you will have peace and quiet and yet easy access to all the village has to offer in a few minutes.

About Jennifer Linley Taylor

Our Grandmother Mary purchased this property in 1963. The Village Suite used to be her art studio and is located next to our family home. My name is Jennifer and I live a couple blocks away. I am an artist and lived in France for 20 years, but now spend most of my time in Mendocino. We love Mendocino and look forward to welcoming you and telling you about the things we love to do and see here.

Why Jennifer Linley Taylor chose North Coast

I fell in love with Mendocino in the early 60's when I used to visit my Grandmother as a little girl. I ended up buying my own home here in the late 80's. Our parents moved into our Grandmother's house in the 90's where they happily lived until just recently. We are excited to now be able to offer Village Suite now for the first time as a vacation rental.

What makes this studio unique

Because our property is located at the west end of town and in a residential district it is in a very quiet area known as Portuguese Flats. The fantastic unobstructed view across state park and onto the bay is a very unique and hard to come by view in the village. Our family has spent many happy years on this property and we look forward to sharing it with you and help others create joyful memories.

Sweet Stay at the Village Suite!

  • 5 of 5

While we could have just settled into the comfy furniture and enjoyed the view for our entire stay, we took full advantage of daily jogs along the Headlands, shopping on Main Street, drives up and down the Coast, friendly, welcoming locals, and the flood of pleasant memories, having spent weekends in the 60's on the Mendocino Coast. We had a great time, loved the Village Suite, and will be back, SOON!!

Cozy, Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

I visit Mendocino several times a year and love staying right in town. I have rented several spots from hotels to rental properties and this property has everything. It has a wonderful view from inside the home and the comfy chairs out front. The home is set up in such a cozy and comfortable way, with everything you need to stay in if it is a rainy weekend, but also close enough to get out and about. Daily walks on the headlands and then lunch at Patterson's without ever having to get in the car. A great spot if you bring bicycles too. I booked my next stay while still at the house-it's that nice!

Perfect Getaway Spot

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway spot! The location was absolutely perfect (in close proximity to walks along the ocean bluffs and right near bars and restaurants) and the view from the front room was absolutely stunning! The little apartment also had everything we needed to make ourselves comfortable. We definitely hope to stay here again in the future.

Spectacular views & wonderful accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular experience all the way around! The check-in and out process was extremely easy and convenient. The location was amazing and the view is indescribable --- one of the best finds in Mendocino for sure! Cute, cozy, charming --- all the adjectives. Couldn't say anything better about the visit and hope to return again one day!

Lovely, quiet cottage

  • 5 of 5

This home was just what we needed for four nights at the end of our travels throughout California. The nice shower and very soft bed were wonderful to come home to, and we enjoyed relaxing on the couch near the gas fireplace with a distant view of the ocean. Mendocino is tiny so most everything is walking distance. We would stay here again!
