Dog-friendly home for 4 w/ocean views & patio; fireplace

Come relax at the gorgeous Northern California Coast at this cute two-bedroom Mendocino vacation rental. You'll enjoy stunning ocean views, a large outdoor deck where you can breathe in the crisp ocean air, WiFi, and an adorable beachy-interior with white-washed walls and lots of colorful throw pillows. Located less than five miles north of Mendocino's quaint downtown area, this Mendocino Beach House offers peace and tranquility, while only a few minutes drive from all the shops, galleries, and eateries.

A large sunny living area combines a living room, dining area, and open full kitchen assuring that everyone can hang out and socialize easily. Grab a book from the shelf and curl up on the pillow-covered rattan sofa for some afternoon reading. There's also a flat screen TV, cable, a stereo, and a DVD player so you'll have plenty of entertainment options. There's even a gas stove for creating a nice and cozy ambiance on chilly coast evenings.

If you head out to the wind-protected patio, you can spend a morning taking in the ocean views and sipping coffee under the big, outdoor umbrella. This is an ideal spot for a light lunch or an afternoon game of cards out in the sun - all while listening to the crashing waves.

The full kitchen is packed with major appliances (including a dishwasher), pots, pans, dishes - everything you'll need for creating a vacation feast! There's also a blender if you want to whip up a batch of fresh fruit smoothies and a coffee grinder for freshly ground beans every morning.

At this Mendocino getaway, you'll have room for up to four guests with a spacious downstairs bedroom with a queen sized bed and upstairs, the master suite, complete with a king bed. This home is also dog friendly and welcomes up to two dogs (though a nightly fee per dog and minimum fee per stay will apply). So don't forget your furry companions at home!

Also on the upper level is a second living room, also with a TV and a wet bar. There'll be no need to head downstairs for a cold drink while in the middle of watching your favorite show up here! On nice evenings, you can step out on the second floor deck to watch a spectacular sunset. Amenities include a washer and dryer, and a collection of board games.

This Mendocino getaway offers a wonderful location only a 10 minute drive from downtown. Stroll through galleries, book browse at the Mendocino Book Company, then stop at the Cafe Beaujolais for lunch. Afterwards, you can hike through the Mendocino Headlands State Park.

From your ocean view retreat, you are also only a 15 minute drive south of Fort Bragg. The largest town in the area, you'll find even more shops and galleries to explore, as well as the North Coast Brewing Company - stop in for some Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout and a plate of garlic fries.

Book a stay at this Northern California Coast vacation rental for a Mendocino getaway you won't soon forget! This Mendocino County beach house is ideal for couples traveling together or even a romantic getaway for two.

Jill P. Jul 2020
Had a very relaxing time in this lovely home, in a quiet and beautiful setting.
kathy l. Jul 2020
This two story house is especially well suited for two couples because the upstairs is like a second living room and bedroom. The location is perfect, right in between Fort Bragg and Mendocino and very close to Caspar Beach and Russian Gulch State Park. We had everything we needed, and even though the ocean view is in the distance, you can still hear the waves at night and the fog horn. We will definitely stay here again!
Theresa B. Mar 2020
This was our fourth year staying in this beautiful home. We love it and will be back!
Lawrence F. Mar 2020
This house could not have been more perfect. The view was magnificent. The house was fully equipped with anything you could have wanted to make your stay enjoyable. The location is ideal since you are between Fort Bragg and Mendocino.
Barbara W. Jan 2020
We enjoyed our 3-day stay at the Beach House. It was a perfect place for 2 couples. The upstairs living area was the best place to relax and enjoy the view. The furniture was more comfortable than down stairs. I would not have chosen white material for any of the sitting area sofas and chairs. The home was clean. Bring your own toiletries that you like using at home. A trip to the Dollar Store is a great way to replenish anything that you used or anything you didn't find in the home like large enough bowls for a salad. We left the bowls in the home for the next tenant. We also purchased 4 medium size wine glasses and left them as well. All-in-all we had a great time visiting Ft. Bragg/Mendocino. For sure we'll be back.
Manager response:
Barbara, we are pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable stay! We appreciate you making a trip to the store and graciously leaving behind some kitchenware for the next visitors. We truly look forward to hosting you next time!
Glenda B. Jan 2020
Lovely home . Well maintained and spotless ! Kitchen had everything you needed . Great location and pet friendly was a plus ! Great support staff . Would rent again .
Michele B. Jan 2020
We had a few hiccups, we came into a cold house. Couldn't get the heat on. They have a wonderful handyman who tried to get the heat on, even brought a heater from his house. The home has electric heaters in the bedroom and all was not lost. Come to find out, no propane. The propane guy came, said he was sick and didn't fill it when he was supposed to. Not really their fault but should have been checked. Went to use the dishwasher, it was full of scuzzy water. That was not fixed while we were there. The furniture is white, shows stains and uncomfortable.

That was the bad and so there were issues. It's still a good house and a really neat area. I would go back. Sometimes things go wrong but you shouldn't let that ruin anything. I could give it less stars but we still had a good time and it had all we needed.
Manager response:
We are sorry to read you had some disappointments, Michele. The propane is on automatic fill with the provider, and we are so sorry they missed it for some reason. This has been taken care of. The dishwasher is brand new but did need a new part and will get the dishwasher up and running as soon as the new part arrives. Thank you!
Chris M. Dec 2019
Loved the location near the beach, the very relaxing upstairs area and the comfy beds. Very spacious and lots of natural light.
Aaron A. Dec 2019
We loved our stay. Close to beaches, redwood hiking, and great coffee in Mendocino. Having the garage available to us was a great bonus during a couple stormy days and the upstairs made for cozy game nights. Highly recommend!
hannah s. Nov 2019
House was very nice and it's located within walking distance of Caspar beach and walking trails. We got to listen to nearby seals bark all night long. Downside- The carpet and furniture cushions are all white so it is a bit nerve-racking to have your dog (or other children) stay with you here. Since this is a pet friendly home, we recommend the owners gate the porch doorways so we can all relax outside without having to hold the leash... lot's of deer and jack rabbits roaming by. Also, bring your cleaning supplies. House was not equipped with basic surface or carpet cleaners if you needed it.
HUGH B. Nov 2019
Just spent several day in this house. It is place perfectly close to the Pacific and between Ft Bragg and Mendocino. The house is cozy and beautifully appointed. If you like this area you can’t go wrong.
Mark O. Nov 2019
Rented same property three times, going back in the spring if it's available and I'm still kicking
Hilary M. Nov 2019
We loved the location, the open space, the wildlife around us and the privacy. The house was spotless, well equipped, and every little detail was thought through. It is obvious the home is well taken care of and its visitors are highly valued!
Judith R. Oct 2019
We had a great time at the Beach House..The house offered the perfect location for seascape and lighthouse photography as well as nighttime stargazing! Quiet times for curling up with a good book, listening to the crash of the waves and the calls of the sea lions. Evening visits from a small herd of deer as well as a sighting of wild turkeys (winged, not liquid!) Terrific find-more than we expected!
Margaret M. Oct 2019
This beach house met our expectations - and more! Great location (close to Mendocino and Fort Bragg), gorgeous view from 2nd story, and full of thoughtful amenities provided by the hosts.
We enjoyed watching the deer wander through and walking out to the headlands for spectacular ocean vistas.
Would love to return someday!
jeff c. Sep 2019
Clean, comfortable, central location, perfect coastal getaway. We keep coming back for a reason!
Dale W. Aug 2019
As described, neat, private,cozy, well situated, perfect for walking the dog.
Patti N. Aug 2019
This home would be perfect for two couples. Basically, two master bedrooms, one on each level with their own living spaces. The kitchen is well appointed with every appliance you'll need and some great spices if you plan on eating in.

The ocean views are very nice. We were visited each morning and evening with a family of at least seven deer. There are also squirrels and jack rabbits hanging out. Sea lions at the beach can be heard often.

We will definitely return to the Beach House!!
Susan S. Jul 2019
Loved listening to the waves, the birds, and an occasional happy harbor seal. I really needed the peace and healing of this stay. The house had beautiful light flowing in, a big cozy bed, and serenity from every window. Never got tired of the deer passing by or walks to the little Caspar headlands at sunset. Kitchen worked great for our needs. Would love a longer, hotter soak in a tub but the hot water heater is a smallish one, as other reviews mention, and it is not any reason to take away a star. With drought and energy concerns today, a hot shower with heat lamps in the bathrooms was certainly plenty nice enough for me. (But I know my fellow vacation soakers will want to be warned.) Stay here! It is a wonderful escape from the world. Have coffee on sunny mornings on the deck behind the clear windbreaks. Read by an open window. Enjoy!
Tracy M. Jul 2019
We've stayed in a number of places in/around Mendocino over the years- camping, hotels, B&B's, and vacation rentals- and this place is at the top. Such a comfortable, well-equipped home with beautiful views and a really convenient location. We loved seeing the deer, watching the sunsets, and hearing the barking sea lions. We are so grateful we could bring our dog who has had the time of his life on the beaches and headlands of this magical coastline.
Jack K. Jul 2019
Great place. Nice views. 4 miles to fort Bragg Can’t say anything bad about the place. Vacassa was great to work with
Teresa D. Jun 2019
The house is very comfortable and has great views of the ocean. Walking distance to beach and close to both Fort Bragg and Mendocino. My favorite room is the upstairs reading room, lots of windows and sun. We will definitely be back.
Elysia A. May 2019
The house was wonderful wish we would have booked a longer stay! We went for a wedding and had the nicest rental within walking distance from the wedding. Pictures dont do the house justice! Very Welcoming and clean. Highly Recommended!!
Dash G. May 2019
The beach house is a beautiful, spacious home! My wife and I and 2 younger children stayed 4 nights, It has everything you would need for a home away from home. The view of the ocean was a plus, and seeing the deer roam around the yards was also great! We will definitely stay at the beach house again.
James J. Mar 2019
The house was as advertised. clean, comfortable, well appointed. Heating is always an issue with multi-storied houses so keep the fan on to help move the heat back down-stairs, it was much warmer upstairs, but cozy over all. Bring you own binocular/telescope though, the ones provided are well worn "renters'.
Theresa B. Mar 2019
This house is just awesome. This was our third trip staying in this particular house and we never feel we want to try somewhere else.
Joann M. Feb 2019
The quiet
Thomas M. Feb 2019
We got there on a cold and rainy evening and we’re greeted with a warm cozy fire. We immediately felt welcomed! This house had everything we needed. (A few games would have been a nice touch, since we forgot ours.) It is quite spacious for 4 people. Very clean. It’s nice to be close to the ocean. You can hear the ocean from the house.
Brian Z. Feb 2019
Quiet privacy with views of the sea to be shared with the local deer.
Karen W. Jan 2019
The Beach House is comfortable, and well appointed. The views from upstairs are beautiful.
Cynthia R. Dec 2018
The house is charming, fabulous location, great floor plan, clean and comfortable. The kitchen is nicely appointed but not for gourmet cooking. We would most definitely rent this home again. Great for couples, families. Pet friendly but bring towels for wiping muddy paws, there are only nice "people" towels.
Tamara D. Nov 2018
Lovely home, beautiful and peaceful location.
Kimberly C. Nov 2018
A cozy home in a great location! Loved the sounds of the ocean at night, and the seals in the morning! Deer visited the property by day, skunk by night so check outside before you take your canine friend out in the evening! Great hiking right from the home. There's a trail nearby that will take you to the ocean, through a wildlife preserve and to the Pt. Cabrillo Lighthouse, less than a mile away.

The home is comfortable and has a bedroom and living room area on each floor. The decor is charming, and the home was well cleaned and nicely prepared for our arrival. The kitchen has all the appliances and utensils needed to put together meals to enjoy during your stay, and the gas "wood stove" creates a warm and cozy atmosphere for relaxing with a glass of wine.

Good times.
GLORY W. Oct 2018
Well equipped w patio furniture, well stocked kitchen including spices, comfortable beds and linens. House is in a field, a road and houses on the water in front of it. View of ocean is f upstairs. Property is split rail fenced, but not fencing to keep in a dog so leashes are necessary. There are no close ocean trails. Location is perfect for parks Jughandle, Russian Gulch) and trails and activities in Ft Bragg and Mendocino. Gas in Mendocino $6.11, Ft. Bragg $3.99. We would stay here again if the prices stay about the same.
David H. Oct 2018
Perfect spot between Fort Bragg and Mendocino. Walking distance to the bluffs and beach. Comfortable beds, plenty of space for the 4 of us. Guests are allowed use of the garage. Could use some new blinds in the upstairs bedroom.
jeff c. Sep 2018
very clean and comfortable, good central location. Reasonable price considering the location. We will stay here again.
Gregory A. Aug 2018
Fantastic location for a seaside getaway. We enjoyed walking along the cliffs by the lighthouse and how close the house was to both Fort Bragg and Mendocino.
CHARLES K. Aug 2018
House was comfortable and well equipped. Two suggestions:
House sleeps 4 but we were 3 and bottom shower ran out of hot water each day. Fragrance smell knocked us over when we opened the door. Had to open doors and windows to air out but still lingered in the air.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see there were some inconveniences with this stay. We no longer use air fresheners as we understand it bothers some of our guests. We believe the odor must have been from the previous group. It is normal for the water heater to run out after a couple of showers due to its smaller size for the unit. Thanks!
Leshanta P. Aug 2018
Couldn't have asked for a better stay, and Vacasa customer service went above and beyond when I left an electronic device at the rental. A+ book with Vacasa you won't be disappointed!
vance b. Jun 2018
Location was perfect, felt very homey.
We were able to bring our 2 small dogs and felt very comfortable leaving them by themselves when we were out and about.
We will definitely book this place again!
Ricardo A H. May 2018
You are across the street from the ocean, and between Mendocino and Ft. Bragg.
This is a home, not a little beach house. You can hear the waves from every room.
Better pots and pans and a grill would make this house "heaven."
Stacey G. Apr 2018
We had a wonderful time, stunning views . We especially enjoyed the deer & turkeys!
Would have really liked furniture for the decks & more comfortable furniture in the front living area.
Kasie E. Mar 2018
The Beach House was a great fit for our family of 4! The views were amazing and we were so close to everything! The two living spaces were a perfect fit. We will most likely return to the beach house in the future!
Theresa B. Mar 2018
We had the best time and plan to return the same time next year. Thank you so much
Mike L. Mar 2018
Nice little house with good ocean views, conveniently located between Mendocino and Ft. Bragg. Nice beach within walking distance.
Rachelle L. Mar 2018
My husband, another couple, and I were pleased to be staying in your cozy coastal home! We enjoyed walking, dining out, cooking and seeing the sights...I wish it were able to accommodate my family...We opted not to bring our lil dog... he was happy to stay with the neighbors at home.

We will come back soon I hope and definitely recommend your Vacasa to our friends.
Myriah M. Jan 2018
We traveled with my in laws. My father in law has a bad back. The accommodations were very comfortable and clean.
Josh H. Jan 2018
It was exactly as advertised and had everything my group needed. Completely recommend it.
Poppy R. Dec 2017
We were inspired to stay in this lovely home with so many big windows with great views of the ocean. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed to prepare our own meals. We especially liked the second floor room with the telescope - it was cozy and had the best views. Thank you!
Frank S. Nov 2017
We stayed at this property for the 4th time. Highly recommended. I wish it had a real fireplace.
Jill W. Nov 2017
Beautiful spot and lots to explore nearby.
Dulce C. Nov 2017
This is our 2nd time staying at this beautiful cozy beach home. It was perfect for our two school age kids and us. We loved using all the amenities the kitchen had. Loved taking strolls to the cliffs to see beautiful sunsets. We were greeted by deer when we came in. We hope to come back again. Great for families, couples, girls weekend out!
Robert P. Nov 2017
Great place. Wonderful location. Made friends with many deer.
Bryan K. Oct 2017
Nice location, nice beach house, our family had a great vacation here. Very relaxing and scenic.
thank you!
Christy B. Sep 2017
Went for our babymoon. The house is peaceful and quiet but you can hear the seals and ocean from your window. Has everything you need to relax, even great books!
Loved our stay,
Salvador V. Sep 2017
Loved being in this house. Highly recommended for someone looking for a place to rest and relax.
Karan S. Sep 2017
Great place, highly recommended. Love the deers that surrounded our place every morning and evening.
Rebecca S. Aug 2017
Well-stocked house with great access to bluffs, Point Cabrillo, and other spots along the coast.
Beth M. Jul 2017
Visited for a week with my husband and dog. This house was great with two different living spaces and beautiful views! The deer were constant entertainment. Loved the trails for walking the dog and the weather was fantastic and chilly!
Elaine C. Jul 2017
What a great house! Wonderful separation of space!
Julie W. Jul 2017
Really enjoyed our stay. Sat on patio and watched the deer in the evening. Very close to all activities. Very comfortable home. Would highly recommend this home.
Sonya B. Jul 2017
My kids (ages 10 & 12), 2 dogs and I rented the house for a long weekend out of the bay area. My mom met us there the second day. She's a pilot so she flew into Little River airport which was about 15 minutes away (So convenient!). The house was perfect for us with a full kitchen, living area, bedroom and bath downstairs, and a second living area, bathroom and bedroom upstairs. The dogs loved the upstairs balcony and watching all the deer and jack rabbits. It was a perfect space for us and we would definitely return.
George L. Jun 2017
We loved the house and grounds so much we never wanted to leave. The area is beautiful and so quiet. We could hear the waves and they lulled us to sleep every night. A wonderful experience.
Suzanne W. Jun 2017
this home has two full living rooms. great for separating loud children from quiet adults.
Karen H. May 2017
I almost don't want to write the great review the house deserves because I worry it won't be available next time I want to book a stay. This house is very pleasant, and comfortable.
Cal D. May 2017
Quiet, relaxing, and very close to Mendocino and Fort Bragg. Perfect for two or four people
Melinda M. May 2017
We had such a good time at the beach cottage in Caspar. It was such a great location, close to Mendocino and Fort Bragg's eclectic shopping. The cottage itself is on a huge lot with no noisy neighbors. Although the four legged ones (deer and rabbits) were quite entertaining. We enjoyed beachcombing at low tide at the nearby beach and our dog even joined in the treasure hunt. The glass walled deck provided a great place to read, relax and have a glass of wine to watch the sunset or a cup of coffee or tea to watch the sunrise. The cottage had the most extensive collection of spices and all the kitchen equipment you need to fix a great meal. We definitely are looking forward to our next visit to the area and stay at the beach cottage.
John O. Apr 2017
Thank you for sharing your home with us . . We were very comfortable, and look forward to a return trip one day, as our stay was much too short. . . John
Mark E. Mar 2017
Very nice location. Quiet neighborhood. Limited ocean view. Good ocean access. Great place to take your dogs and family.
Theresa B. Mar 2017
It is a beautiful home. Well supplied and well furnished.
Karen H. Feb 2017
The Beach House is a pleasure to stay in when visiting the Mendocino-Fort Braggg area. The furnishings and decor are comfortable and inviting. Nothing is lacking in the house, especially in the kitchen, where everything is supplied for anyone wishing to cook a meal.
The location is perfect, only 7 miles from Fort Bragg, and 3 miles from Mendocino village.
Carolyn K H. Feb 2017
House is set up very nicely for two couples, one bedroom up, one down and not on top of each other.
Upstairs living area very pleasant especially as in our case the weather not so great.
Gas heating stove is great, comfy beds, all you need for cooking. Easy entry system.
Will definitely return
Keith B. Jan 2017
This house is a great get away for a group of people, lots of room to spread out, close to fun things to do, quiet and accommodating. We would do it again and maybe will when visiting Calif.
Eric V. Dec 2016
Wonderful time was had by all... Only wish we had stayed longer
Karen H. Nov 2016
I recently stayed at the Beach House in Caspar. I really love the house, and how comfortable it is. The location is excellent. The house has everything you need to cook your meals if you choose. It was a very enjoyable stay. I will be staying here again.
Mickey S. Oct 2016
Lovely home, very inviting and great views.
Jessica P. Oct 2016
We had a great stay at the Beach House. The house had everything we needed and more. The arrival and departure process was so easy -- thanks Vacasa and Beach House.
Roger J. Sep 2016
Apparently I cannot submit this without writing something here.
SUNG Y. Sep 2016
We had so much good time!!
Thank you..
Richard H. Aug 2016
Great location - the home is very nice - loved seeing deer outside at almost anytime of the day!
Julianne R. Aug 2016
Great place to relax, hear the ocean waves and reconnect with loved ones. We both enjoyed the accommodations and will definitely return soon!!
Gayle S. Jul 2016
Could have had better view and access to water
David M. Jul 2016
The neighbors are always visiting especially in the morning and evening. The property is spacious. We had enough room to fly a kite. And we loved the walk to the headlands and our walk on the beach.
We look forward to our next visit to Mendocino.
Rose W. Jun 2016
Very relaxing and serene setting
Jessica S. Jun 2016
Very clean and spacious home. Close to Caspar beach, which is beautiful! Quiet and peaceful location with deer in the yard and views of the ocean. Everything you need is there.
Disha G. Jun 2016
Had a wonderful experience, the house is very well maintained and furnished with great view. My mom & dad were visiting us so this was there 1st trip to Mendocino and they loved it. And my 22 month old toddler was so happy to see deer and jack rabbits around the house everyday. A beach close by less than a few minutes away. I would like to come back again.
Virginia B. Jun 2016
Comfortable and affordable. Good long views across the meadows to the ocean.
Tom And Sue S. Jun 2016
This great house has a perfect location between the village of Mendocino & the town of Ft Bragg. It was very clean,comfortable, & spacious for two couples. It's location is good for walking the South Caspar loop road, hiking to Point Cabrillo Light House, or walking to the point for a great view of the ocean &/or to see the sea lions, which one can hear from the house. It was fun watching the wildlife that paraded by the house windows....lots of deer, some jack rabbits, & wild turkeys. This was a very relaxing, well supplied house that we hope to rent again.
Rob W. Jun 2016
I recently rented the Beach House property in Mendocino. This place was a great value and I would return and/or recommend to a friend. We chose this location because my family does an annual camping trip to (very) nearby Caspar Beach and my wife is not a big fan of camping and we have a 1 year old daughter; my compromise was this rental. It was super close to the campground and beach, but with the conveniences of home (or without the inconveniences of camping). You can't beat the location of this property; I would gladly come back, hopefully for a longer visit, because this area is beautiful.
Lynn M. May 2016
Lovely home well equipped very comfortable beds.
Very quiet and enjoyed seeing the deer everyday.
Sophia V. May 2016
Excellent house configuration. Can see 2 separate families also sharing since there's 2 different living areas. Lots of room and played soccer with my sons and dog. Well furnished kitchen so you can really cook great meals. Casper is center to all the great places: Mendocino downtown, Russian Gulch State Park, Fort Bragg, and Van Damme State Park.
Sue B. May 2016
Very accommodating . Watch for the deer and jack rabbits around house. Enjoyed the wildlife. Great views and nice 1 mi walking loop around residential area
Courtney C. Apr 2016
Beautiful location less than a few minutes away from a great family beach
Mark H. Apr 2016
The whole West Coast experience was fabulous. Loved the Beach HOuse along with the views, sensational sunsets, Glass Beach.
Debbie S. Apr 2016
This home is very charming and very comfortable. Very home like. We didn't finished some of our unopened drinks so we left it for the next person who rent that beach house
Dulce C. Apr 2016
The Beach House is a great place to stay--for couples or for family. It is walking distance to a little trail to the cliffs to watch a sunset or see seals basking in the sun (just be careful though when walking on the cliffs--stay on the trails). This vacation house has everything you could ask for for a vacation home. The hosts are so nice and generous to offer binoculars even for bird watching. The kitchen is well appointed--we even baked cookies ( they even provided parchment paper!!) there and watched a movie on their DVD. If you are a gourmet cook and want to cook something, you have everything you'll need to cook in their cheery kitchen. While, their furniture is a bit outdated, thrown all the way back to the '80's (even their radio station was set to '80's and now music--kind of fun), it is comfortable enough. The beds are comfortable (just put earplugs on if you don't want to hear the seals barking in the night). The washer and dryer are great--had to use since my kids came back all wet and sandy running around in the sand at dusk. It's always nice to have all clean laundry packed and ready to put away when you come home from vacation. My favorite spot was in the little room leading to the balcony outside. It was cozy enough to just relax and curl up with a good book or magazine and do yoga there in the morning. We are a family of four--we have two girls ages 7 & 5 and we really all loved it here. It is clean. Just be mindful to save water, reduce, recycle. I definitely would come back to this nice beach house. Oh, FYI, this house is in in Caspar, not in Mendocino. It is situated driving distance between Ft. Bragg and Mendocino, both villages which we took advantage of while on our stay here. Hope you have a wonderful stay here as we did!
David E. Mar 2016
The location, amenities of the home and local adventures made our short visit memorable. In short, a wonderful place to spend some time!
Christene H. Mar 2016
My best friend and I were due for a much needed vacation and we chose the mendo coast/Ft. Bragg area. The house was perfect for just that! There was very limited cell phone reception (which we were totally ok with) however, it did have great internet/wi-fi in case someone should need to get ahold of us. There are hardly any close neighbors and barely ANY traffic on the road in front of the house. The house is well stocked with essentials and you feel very comfortable. Overall, it is the perfect "getaway from it all" beach house!
Carol M. Feb 2016
We had a wonderful visit! The kitchen was really well stocked so we were able to cook at the house which was a treat. The neighborhood is so quiet...the only noise we heard was the crashing waves and the seals barking - it was awesome. We definitely recommend staying at the Beach House.
Jennifer H. Feb 2016
The house and property were great! Loved listening to the ocean and the sea lions! Great location, very close to Ft. Bragg and Mendocino.
Crystal R. Feb 2016
We had THE best stay at the Caspar Beach House. The location is SO quiet and relaxing. It's an easy walk to a protected cove beach or even shorter to a rocky point for an up close and personal view of the wild north coast shoreline. The home is absolutely lovely; very beachy, comfortable, clean. The only problem was it was SO hard to leave! We can't wait to go back.
Colleen B. Feb 2016
We fell in love with this area of the Mendocino coast. The home was perfect in every way. We spent every morning and evening watching the sunrises and sunsets from the second floor living area ... The view was spectacular. It was the perfect home for two couples as the bedrooms and bathrooms were on two different levels. We loved that the entire home was surrounded with windows and there was a view from every room. We hope to come back again in the spring. We have rented many VRBO properties and this is definitely one of our favorites. We would have enjoyed an outside grill, but understand that may be a safety issue . We will definitely be back and have already recommended the property to friends.

Already planning on staying here again in a few months!! I rent homes about 5 times a year, this place was a great surprise, so close to the beach, 5 minutes to Mendocino, and 8 minutes to Fort Bragg (I timed it). The house was in great shape, nicely stocked kitchen,easy to use the tv, comfy beds, soft towels, beautiful views of the coast. And whoever they use for house cleaning do a superb job!!

This house is in a great location - the house itself is very well organized and comfortable. Great view of the ocean as well.

Traveling with my parents and child; needed to be in the middle. Wanted quiet and a fully useful kitchen. Everything here felt like being a guest in someone's beloved home; the best about vacation rentals. Lots of love here.

A beautiful home...warm and welcoming...

Great location!! We so enjoyed our time here!! The location is AMAZING! Only a few feet out the door is a gorgeous coast line view. Pictures on the site don't do it justice! The property was clean and well maintained and we loved just hanging out by the fire place and chatting or playing games around the kitchen table! Thank you so much!!

The house has much more space than pictured; house very well stocked with everything you need; location to the headlands to see the sea lions was excellent and easy and short walk to the beach. We enjoyed the house and location and would definitely recommend and come back for another visit!

This house was very comfortable and has a great location. There is beach access across the street. And it is located about half way between Fort Bragg and Mendocino so it is easy to get to either location. And several state parks are nearby so there was plenty to do if you don't want to go in to town.
Judi R. Nov 2015
Very quiet neighborhood and location is great for trips into Mendocino or to Fort Bragg. Enjoyed hearing the sea lions barking and hearing the waves crash over the rocks. The house has ocean views from every room. We will definitely be back.
Marianne S. Nov 2015
Probably the best holiday rental we have done in 20 years and on this 6 week road trip we are doing a lot. Thank you for all the little touches

We loved this house! The upstairs place was delightful!
Beds were comfortable.

Had a restful weekend in the Beach House. Appreciated the spaciousness of the house and of the surrounding property. It was very peaceful. Particularly enjoyed being able to watch across the street to the coastline and beach. A very short drive to Mendocino for dinner and shopping.
Patricia F. Oct 2015
The Beach House was even nicer than in the pictures, and had lovely views of the ocean in the distance - it was so comfortable and relaxing - a great place to hang out. Perfect for 2 couples as each have their own space. Short walking distance to the beach, or to an overlook where there are seal lions that you can hear barking in the distance during the night. Only 2 mile drive to Mendocino Village. We're from New England and have already recommended the Beach House to friends going out to northern CA.
Frances P. Aug 2015
We enjoyed two nights at the beach house. The location is great- a very quiet neighborhood with easy beach and bluff access, as well as a short drive to either Fort Bragg or Mendocino. The home was well stocked with all of the kitchen supplies we needed. The beds were comfortable and the home was clean. The only thing missing was a BBQ, so if you have your heart set on that, chose another home.
Phyllis H. Jul 2015
The view of the ocean from the driveway was perfect, however, from the house it was disappointing. The property is perfect for a stay, but the goal of this visit was to view the ocean with a glass of wine and take in the beauty. Had to walk away from the house to do that.
Jiri N. Jul 2015
this was really fantastic place, we really like it a lot. It was very clean with beach feel to it. Fully furnished with a lot of kitchen tools. I cannot be happier!

It has really nice deck, I wish there would be outdoor grill and perhaps a hot tub.
Michelle M. Jul 2015
Beach house was awesome. There are great views of the ocean and the lighthouse, especially from upstairs. We were very comfortable and wished we didn't have to leave. We will definitely be back!!
Prasad S. Jun 2015
We had a wonderful stay at the beach house near Caspar beach. It is a great location for walking over and enjoying the ocean at the nearby beaches. The house itself is very spacious, well-furnished. We enjoyed this ideal beach house and highly recommend to others.
Tina W. Jun 2015
We spent 5 lovely days at this well appointed beach house and will forever treasure the memories we created here. It was perfect for my husband and I, our 12 YO son and his friend, and our dog. The house is so comfortable and cozy and we truly loved it here. I shed a few tears as we pulled out of the drive-way. Even our dog was sad to leave ... I literally had to drag him out of the house. We will definitely be returning for more happy times. The Whelon Family, San Francisco.

My mom and I stayed in the beach house for three nights in April. We were wowed by the size of the house. The photos do not do it justice. There are two big living areas, one on each floor, plus a little nook on the second floor where we spent most of our time because it had the best view and comfy chairs. The bedrooms are on diagonally opposite sides of the house so no one disturbs anyone else. The area is very quiet. We saw many deers in the neighborhood. We would definitely stay here again if we visit Mendocino.

view was great,could have been better..Upstairs balcony facing away from ocean..Looks towards neighbors house
Philippa W. Mar 2015
Good location, walking distance to a pretty beach and wonderful viewing of the sea lion colony and the coast from the nearby headlands. Lots of natural light, quiet and comfortable. Warm and sunny, deer walking past the desk, close to Fort Bragg, good central location for all the surrounding activities.
Nese O. Mar 2015
A lovely home, perfectly situated between Mendocino and Fort Bragg. It had all the conveniences of home, plus a lovely view. We hope to visit again in fall. Thank you!
Ethan E. Mar 2015
Great long weekend in the Mendocino area. Home was very centrally located between Fort Bragg and Mendocino. Quiet neighborhood with lots of deers wandering around and nice ocean views. Kids (2&5 yrs old) had a blast running around the spacious yard. Small beach at bottom of hill (.25 miles) w/ convenient store. House had everything we needed, and we would happily recommend it to a friend.

Lona A. Jan 2015
We used to vacation for many years in the 1970 and 1980, and stayed in the campground at Casper Beach Rv park. We celebrated my husband's 80th birthday at the Beach House with our friends of over 50 years that we used to vacation with at Casper Rv park. We enjoyed remembering all the fun we had over the years with our children. But the Beach House was just perfect for us. The layout is great for 2 couples, the upstairs sitting area had a good view of the ocean and cove at Casper Beach. The beds were comfortable, nice and quite at night, we enjoyed hearing the seals down on the rocks. The kitchen was stocked well with just about anything you would need to cook. We did very little cooking as this was a vacation. We would like to come back to this house again. The house was very cozy and we loved the way it was decorated. A great 4 day week and the sun was out every day and no wind. Thanks for providing us a great beach house for the Birthday celebration. We hope to come again.

Thank you for sharing a special occasion with us! We are delighted to see that you enjoyed the home during your stay, and we hope to see you again. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!
Rose W. Jan 2015
The Beach House was in a beautiful location with ocean views, in a neighborhood where the deer roamed freely, near coastal access and within walking distance to the Cabrillo Point Lighthouse.
Most importantly, the home was quite cozy and the kitchen was very well supplied with almost anything you need to prepare a great meal.
Roger H. Dec 2014
First off, we rent vacation homes a couple three times a year, and this is the first time ever we have had one share the garage - what a priceless touch. A great home we slept well and the last day we saw whales off the lower deck.
Erika G. Dec 2014
We live in the area & wanted to show my boyfriend's parents a lovely weekend on the coast. This house was perfect for 2 couples. It has a real seaside charm to it & they allowed us to bring the our 2 dogs which we really appreciated. Spectacular location right by Caspar Beach. Very clean. Huge grassy lot. Would definitely recommend. Cheers!
Paula P. Oct 2014
Great house, great amenities, great location, good views, and deer in the yard most of the day! We had a great time here and highly recommend it for a nice coastal getaway.
Robert G. Sep 2014
We only wished that the view to the ocean was better.
Maegan G. May 2014
Photos do not do the Beach House justice, the home and location are absolutely beautiful! Everything in this rental was spot on perfect and everything you could possibly need was right there. Looking at the stars at night on the upstairs patio while the light from Cabrillo Point lighthouse beams is beautiful and unforgettable. The ocean views are amazing and the waves will lull you into the best night's sleep. There is a lot of character to this little beauty and our family enjoyed every day we were there. Vacasa was wonderful and very professional to deal with. Thank you to the owners for sharing this gem and to Vacasa for making everything so easy! We love this spot and would rent this house again in a heartbeat when we head up the north coast again!!!
Manager response:
Thank you so much for your feedback. I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed not only the home but the area around it as well. Mendocino does has some very wonderful galleries and I agree that the Glass Fire Gallery is definitely worth a visit. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Cindy D. May 2014
We LOVED our stay at the beach house with our two canine best friends. The views, the large kitchen, the huge yard, the secure garage, and the proximity to the ocean were unbelievable.
