This peaceful and sunny Mendocino vacation rental sits right on the edge of Russian Gulch State Park and offers ocean views, lovely architectural details, and modern comforts like WiFi, cable TV, and a private hot tub right out on the spacious deck.

With an open floor plan, there's plenty of space for relaxing and entertaining here! You'll also enjoy skylights and a gorgeous, masonry wood burning fireplace - perfect for chilly evenings in. Just start a fire and pass around mugs of hot cocoa for a cozy night. And if you require a little more entertainment, there's a TV with cable and a DVD player to pass away the hours.

The large, well-stocked kitchen includes an eat-in table, all major appliances (including a dishwasher), and large, wide kitchen windows for lots of natural light. Extras include a blender, mixer, toaster, and even a coffee grinder, so while you're here you may want to plan a special brunch before heading out on a hike.

Sunny days can be spent out on the deck, taking in the ocean view while you lounge back on a deck chair. There's a gas grill for family cook-outs and plenty of spots for everyone to sit down with a plate. And don't forget about the outdoor spa (including a hot tub and an outdoor shower) - it's the perfect way to end a fun-filled day exploring the Northern California Coast!

The three bedrooms include a variety of beds, so up to eight guests can comfortably stay at this Mendocino Magic vacation home. One room has a single queen bed, while another has a queen and two twins. And in the third bedroom, you'll find two more twin beds. This is an ideal getaway for a family vacation!

Other amenities here include a collection of board games, a stereo, and a washer and dryer. While you're out wandering Mendocino's Headlands State Park or even browsing galleries or shops, you won't have to worry about keeping your clothes clean - you can do a load of laundry whenever you need to.

After a hearty breakfast, lace up your hiking boots and set off on a excursion to Russian Gulch State Park. Here, you'll find beach access and scenic waterfalls, so be sure to take plenty of photos! This home's central location is two miles north of the heart of Mendocino village and eight miles south of Fort Bragg. No matter which direction you head off in - you'll find something to do here!

Whether you storm watch in the winter months or hunt for shells in the summer sun, this Northern California Coast vacation rental is an ideal spot for a family retreat. Enjoy the views from the deck, a soak in the hot tub, or just relax around a warm and toasty fire.

The home was so beautiful. It was well cared for and had lots of sleeping room. The kitchen had everything we could hope for and the washer and dryer were great. It meant that we all packed a little lighter. We used the hot tub everyday. It was a very private and quiet area.
lisa l. Aug 2018
Love the location and the hot tub. House was very comfortable and had everything!
Melissa C. Aug 2018
This is a lovely spacious home, well furnished with plenty of kitchen equipment, pots, plates etc. The house was very clean, plenty of nice towels and linens. Plenty of space for our family of 5 - would easily accommodate another 3 people. Short, easy drive into Mendocino for all the shops, restaurants and cafes (do not miss dinner at Luna restaurant - worth the wait!).
Jeff T. Aug 2018
I took my family of five here to get away from the smoky air and rain of ash produced by the California wildfires. There is plenty of space to do whatever you please! We were pleasantly surprised to find out this house is neighbor to Russian Gulch State Park which we explored immediately after arrival. We were in the spa every night after a day at the beach and closed the evenings out with a roaring fire. We were extremely sad when it was time to depart, but loved the house so much that we discussed spending Christmas here. We will return!
Minnie S. Jul 2018
Perfect location, felt very safe, fantastic home! We rent every year in this area (different homes) and this place was our favorite. The hot tub and large yard were perfect for our kids. Easy in and out. Thank you so much!!
Jim W. Jun 2018
The house was clean, well stocked, & in a great location. The ocean view was beautiful & we loved the hot tub!
Barbara S. Jun 2018
We loved walking the trails in Russian Gulch State Park, just outside our door! And we loved coffee each morning on the deck, watching the ocean and the birds. We could not bring ourselves to go inside at night, either, because the deck offers a marvelous view of the stars!
Megan R. Jun 2018
This house was so comfortable and well-stocked! We had everything we needed for a very nice stay. The view from the deck was my favorite part!
Steve A. Apr 2018
Nice clean and spacious home in a GREAT location. Kitchen is well-stocked, and the hot tub was great at night. We walked to nearby Russian Gulch State Park where there are multiple hiking trails on the coast or in the forest. And a beautiful beach as well. Would stay here again.
Rachel E. Mar 2018
We spent a wonderful weekend at this rental! Great location, beautiful view, and well-appointed home. The photos don't quite do it justice.
Brandy R. Mar 2018
Thank you so much !! It was great !! So appreciated and we hope to visit again.
Mary S. Mar 2018
This was our second stay at Mendo Magic and we look forward to visiting again. There were some issues, but if they are addressed, that place would be perfect! Had a good vacation - two couples, even though it rained the entire time!
Estee F. Feb 2018
We loved the layout of the house and the location. Close to town and and beach with lots of walking/ hiking trails. The hot tub was great and I appreciated the outdoor shower.
David L. Jan 2018
used the house many times, always good
Karla O. Nov 2017
The home was lovely and spacious! Near great hiking and excellent views! Would recommend this property to anyone!
Olga E. Nov 2017
The property is 3 minutes walk from Russian Gulch Park, 5 minutes drive from Mendocino, shops and beaches. Dears came right to the backyard!
Sandra L. Nov 2017
Had a wonderful 3 night stay in this lovely beach home!!! Incredibly clean, comfy and cheerful!!! Close to everything. The garden is beautiful. Sit in the hot tub on a clear evening to see the milky way and a billion stars!!! Stunning!!!
SANDRA L. Nov 2017
Love this house. A group of ladies from my church have met there for a weekend retreat for the last two years. Great location, the only thing that is missing is a view of the ocean.
Angela B. Nov 2017
Beautiful home with lots of space. Perfect location close to hiking options and a couple miles away from the fabulous town of Mendocino.
Sharon H. Oct 2017
I chose this home because of the rave reviews and there was no disappointment upon arrival . It is located next to Russian Gulch State Park with a beautiful landscaped yard with deck and hot tub. There is a view of the ocean through the trees. The house is in a very secluded setting, very quite and restful.
The interior has redwood paneling throughout with large windows looking out onto the deck from the living room and kitchen. The kitchen is large with a table that easily seats 8 - 10. The cabinets are well stocked with pots, pans, utensils and dishes for cooking while renting. We found the beds comfortable and bedding adequate. There are two full bathrooms, one with shower only and the other with shower and separate tub. Both baths are separate from the three bedrooms. We will be looking forward to renting this once again.
Willajean M. Oct 2017
Perfectly located between the painting sites we enjoy.
Ani G. Sep 2017
The views from the deck were nice and kitchen was a good size the property was actually nicer than the photos show.
Craig P. Jul 2017
Our family of 7 was very comfortable. Loved being 4 min from Mendicino and just a walk to Russian Gulch state park hike to waterfall.
Luxury home very well kept. Beautiful back yard. Deer grazing in front yard one morning. Highly recommended!
Carmen T. Jul 2017
Beatiful house and so relaxing. The doors could use some WD-40. They are very noisy.
Our two families of four had a lot of fun at this place. We took a short drive to Fort Bragg were we visit the glass beach. Not too much glass but beatiful place.
Rosalie A. Jun 2017
What a wonderful, calm and homey-feeling vacation home. Plenty of room to be together or have a little quiet time. Highly recommended.
Peter S. Apr 2017
The hot tub and HUGE fire place were fun after a super day of hiking, biking and kayaking!!
Nick T. Mar 2017
Everything about the house is great. Views , setup, location, quietness, design, clean.

So much for nature lovers to do in the area
Jen F. Mar 2017
We enjoyed our stay at Mendocino Magic. The house was very clean, check-in was seamless and the property is in a perfect place, close to hikes at Russian Gulch and less than a 5 minute drive to Mendocino village. The back deck is beautiful with a hot tub, patio furniture and a nice view of the water.
Beth S. Mar 2017
This was a great vacation spot for grandparents,parents and 4 grandchildren! We enjoyed having meals around the large kitchen table. In the evenings we played cards and watched movies. And of course we toured the area from Mendecino to Ft. Bragg. The grandkids are already asking if we can go back!
Richele G. Nov 2016
The beds are very uncomfortable, the house water was a light brown color, the door hinges need some w-d 40, needs bigger couches! But there are also great things about this house. It is in a wonderful location, the layout of the house is great, the back deck and spa are amazing with great views and the kitchen is nice and big to cook in. Even with all the negative things about the house I would definitely stay here again!
Sandra L. Oct 2016
Loved Mendocino Magic!! Lots of room for large family or group.
David B. Oct 2016
Wonderful place centrally located. Mountain bike trails across HY 1 and abalone diving in the other direction. Good beds, plenty of room for 6 guys
Willajean M. Sep 2016
The location, convenience, comfort and cleanliness made our stay perfect. We were 5 painters in town for the annual Mendocino Plein Air event. As soon as we know for sure the dates of next year's event we will request Mendocino Magic again.
Smadar S. Sep 2016
This house was beautifully appointed and roomier than we had anticipated. It was perfect for my mother's 70th birthday weekend with grandkids. Very close to Mendocino, and waking distance to the beach and headlands. The kids enjoyed playing in the fenced-in backyard while the adults relaxed. We will definitely return to Mendo Magic!
John W. Aug 2016
The property is beautifully maintained. The location is outstanding: very quiet, full of nature. Deer and turkeys visited us in the morning and evening.
Brenda H. Aug 2016
Great house for a family. The location is convenient for a quick trip into town or a lazy day on the beautiful beach at Russian Gulch. Downtown Mendo is really quaint and the people are very nice. The house is well maintained and comfortable, the grounds are landscaped nicely, there is a view of the ocean from the living room and the apple tree out back has ripe fruit right now!!! Highly recommend this house for laid back people that don't care about fancy.
Cory S. Jul 2016
We absolutely loved the property and location of Mendo Magic, we spent a lot of time in Russian Gulch which was beautiful. We would definitely stay again!
Donna B. Jul 2016
great stay!
Brenda J. Jul 2016
The location is perfect for our family. The house is very, very cozy.
Shusheng L. Jun 2016
The house were very clean, the check in/out procedures are very simple and convenient. Management team probably is the best in the industry. I will looking for Vacasa managed property to rent in future. Wonderful experience
Loxie D. May 2016
We, 2 couples, enjoyed our stay. Lovely location, pretty clean house. Clean hot tub. I have rented many places in Mendocino , Casper area with much nicer furnishings . None ever asked (nicely, but still) that we wash as much of the laundry as possible since "dryer is slow". Get a decent couch and a new dryer.
Manager Response:
We appreciate this feedback and will take it under consideration.
Marcus D. May 2016
Great place to get away.
Rosalie A. May 2016
The large kitchen and living room areas are very accommodating for group socializing and cooking and dining. We love the large kitchen table and the long counter bar which divides the two rooms. It is perfect for our 8 family members.
Susie D. May 2016
Great location! The home is larger than the pictures indicated. It was a great size for 7 women having a reunion. We would stay again!
Trudi M. Apr 2016
We were so impressed with our stay here. Very nice, big house. Perfect location!!! Beautiful view! So relaxing!!!! Will be back for sure!!!!
Abhijit G. Apr 2016
Amazing place to spend time in Mendocino. Enjoyed the stay. The experience of gazing at stars from the hot tub and deck was phenomenal
Jennifer W. Apr 2016
Beautiful views and a very nice home.
Trish S. Mar 2016

Cinto S. Feb 2016
We loved the place. It exceeded our expectation.
Juliet M. Feb 2016
Spacious house, gorgeous views, nearby trails, wine tasting, and convenient to get to town. Can't wait to come back!
Joshua P. Jan 2016
Had a fantastic stay at Mendocino magic, the accommodation was everything we expected and more. Also after going on a long hike there are few things better than jumping into the hot tub!
Tom O. Nov 2015
Great house! Comfortable, warm and a nice open layout. We were two young kids, parents and grandparents for three nights in November and we loved our stay.

First trip to Mendocino and it exceeded our expectations, even though we'd heard great things. Amazing coastline.

So many incredible places to visit close by, and we took a couple of walks from the house into Russian Gulch State Park for dramatic sunsets on the bluff.

Hot tub is great and on a clear night you can see every star in the sky. Take a telescope or binoculars if you have them, and even if you don't you'll be blown away. We saw eight shooting stars in an hour and a half in the hot tub, and we weren't even looking for them.

We'd book Mendocino Magic again
Susan B. Nov 2015
A lovely rustic home. Wonderful for a family. Close to all of the beauty of Mendocino. We are hoping to visit again soon
Cathi S. Aug 2015
It was a very nice place for our family get together!
Emily F. Aug 2015
Mendocino Magic was Fantastic!
We have stayed in several different places on The Mendocino Coast over the years, and this one was by far the best! Perfect for a large family with children, clean, and comfortable. We will be back!
Patricia E. Aug 2015
We would rent this wonderful home again and we recommend it to any who want hiking, fishing, sightseeing, and enjoying the ocean!
Jennifer S. Jul 2015
The kitchen is HUGE. The whole house is HUGE. The rooms were spacious, not at all cramped. The deck was HUGE and freshly stained. The hot tub was excellent. The code key lock entry system worked so nicely. Giant fireplace. Lots of room outside to run around and explore.
Yu-Jung C. May 2015
My friends and I had a great time. Mendocino Magic is right between Fort Bragg and Mendocino so it was easy to get around. The home was lovely and well appointed. We had everything we needed for a wonderful stay.
Anand R. Apr 2015
Amazing experience in Mendocino and the Magic enhanced our visit to be very pleasant. The unit was marvelous and had all the amenities you need.
Cathy S. Apr 2015
Mendocino Magic was the perfect place for our vacation. We would most certainly recommend it to others! We plan on returning sometime in the future.
Gloria M. Jan 2015
Was a very pleasing surprise, loved the spacious kitchen, and it's surroundings. Was very close to Fort Bragg and glass beach =) thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home away from home
Lance Y. Nov 2014
Make sure to ask about the hot tub and what they will refund you if it is not in working order.
Manager Response:
We apologize that the hot tub was not working for your stay, and we do understand what a disappointment this can be for our guests. We do our best to make sure our advertised amenities are in working order, and our hot tubs are serviced regularly. We always work with our guests to determine what fair compensation is when an amenity is out of order. Thank you!
Marath S. Nov 2014
We three families really enjoyed the stay at Mendocino magic. We barbecued and had great food in that well equipped Kitchen. House was well set for the visitors. Love to be there again and happy to recommend to others.
Patricia J. Oct 2014
My family was very pleased with the home and it's amenities. The kitchen was fully loaded and the home was very clean.
LoriDee M. Sep 2014
As soon as we walked in the door we were all pleasantly surprised at the comfortable and well-appointed Mendocino Magic! Its a home that's very well maintained, has an open easy floor plan and that has everything we needed or wanted for our stay. It's quiet, beautifully landscaped and central to both Mendocino and Fort Bragg.

We enjoyed the outdoor hot tub & shower. It was fun to snuggle in by the beautiful rock fireplace to watch Sunday football. We found ourselves a little bit unmotivated to leave to explore the area... it was that comfortable of a home.

We walked right out our door to take the Waterfall Hike in the adjacent Russian Gulch State Park. It was great that we didn't even have to pay park fees to enjoy the park & hike there.

The Wi-Fi is lightening fast, but we did not have AT&T cell coverage.

We would definitely return and stay here again and I highly recommend this home to anyone wanting a beautiful alternative to a hotel or Inn.
Manager Response:
Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We are glad you enjoyed this lovely home and look forward to your next visit.
Catherine R. Aug 2014
Loved every minute!
Kim T. Jul 2014
The pictures of the house doesn't do it justice. I looks much smaller in the pictures. In person the rooms are big and the woodwork and masonry is beautiful. The dryer didn't dry real well. They may need a new one. Eventually the towels got dry but took 2-3 hours to do so. I would stay here again with no dryer though. It was very comfortable.
