This is our third time at ocean breeze. All I can say is it is always wonderful and continues to be our favorite vacation destination on the coast. We will be returning in the next couple of years.
Kevin M. August 2018
The ocean seems to make all your worries fade and the Ocean Breeze property does this very well. Watched whales from the deck every day of our stay!
Teresa C. July 2018
We loved the fact that there was a beautiful view of the ocean from EVERY window in the house! Beware - all living space is upstairs so be prepared with a plan for elderly guests in your party,
Stan S. July 2018
Wonderful views, pet friendly, entire perimeter deck, quiet, ample living space.
Ricky B. July 2018
Everything was excellent- great house, wonderful views.
Clare L. July 2018
We love the view. The house is spacious, clean, well-maintained, and tastefully decorated. The heater works well at some chilly nights. The location is conveniently close to restaurants and beaches. The neighborhood is nice.
Rachel C. May 2018
My wife and I loved staying here. The view is absolutely gorgeous and the house is charming.
Lai S. March 2018
The home was so beautiful and magical. We loved every moment of every second there. We will definitely be back. Spent most of our time sitting on the deck staring off into the ocean. It was very relaxing
Ronda B. March 2018
This was my first experience with Vacasa and it was so easy, convenient and efficient. The house was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The views were fabulous and we all enjoyed ourselves, even thru the rains, so much. Loved watching the whales from a cozy room. Everything was provided and so much so that I brought more than I needed. Except for steak knives. . .I could not find any, but it was ok. The Ocean Breeze was a wonderful, charming house and we
hated to leave! We plan to make this a ritual. Ronda & Wayne B.
Dan & Susan Y. March 2018
The Location and view's are fantastic and a 10 plus but the the home has alot of deferred maintenance for a multi million dollar home. Also, for you senior's and those that don't like stair's, there a two good size, one being spiral. Do your homework!!!
Manager Response:
This is a rustic ocean side home, but it is cared for very well by the owners who will be performing work on the home when they come to visit. Thank you!
James S. March 2018
We finally saw the whales off the balcony.!!! The sunsets were amazing! Very peaceful. This is definitely our go-to vacation place. The ocean view did not disappoint.
Miguel R. February 2018
Great location and scenery. Older home in need of some upgrades
John M. February 2018
This home is perfect for visitors who value ocean views and privacy. The home is located on a small peninsula, with crashing waves on 3 sides of the home. Excellent ocean views can be seen through nearly every window.
Herbert M. February 2018
If you enjoy the ocean & your privacy this is the place !!!!!!!!!!
John M. December 2017
As always, this place remains a terrific getaway. From the unobstructed ocean views to the comforting layout of the home with a GREAT degree of privacy from the adjacent homes, we are consistently drawn back to this 1 of a kind - superb - sanctuary.
Linda H. December 2017
My husband and I have done several VRBO trips in various states including Hawaii and this was definitely one to remember and visit again. The house is very clean and organized with lots of room. The most amazing part of the visit was the view of the ocean from the wrap around deck. I was a little worried about the house because it sounded so good on the website and usually it doesn't look that good in person or some part of it is disappointing. This was not the case here!! Everything was as good or better in person. Despite the fact that we went in December, it wasn't that cold and the windows are so big it wasn't a factor. The managing company was very easy to work with and very professional. We are definitely coming back!!
Loreea G. November 2017
We had a girls weekend for my 17 year old daughter and some of her friends . It was a fun relaxing weekend . The house is generously furnished and had everything we needed . The jacuzzi was clean and warm . Would defiantly stay there again .
Keri G. October 2017
Good house for a girls weekend if you enjoy views of the ocean and need plenty of common space! Only two bedrooms so you need to be comfortable sleeping in the common areas! You do need to drive to go to a beach so be prepared to not be able to walk to the beach. There are trails you can walk to look at the beach from the cliffs. Overall we enjoyed our stay!
Lisa S. October 2017
There’s no reason to leave this view. No matter what the weather, the view is gorgeous. We will return.
Erin M. October 2017
A 10
Olivia M. October 2017
The view from this property is unbelievable. We hardly left the home. We caught ourselves watching the sunset every night on the patio and listening to the waves crash as we fell asleep at nigh. I highly recommend this property.
Melonie L. October 2017
We celebrated our 30th anniversary here with our kids and grand pups. Driving up I knew I was going to live the property. We had trouble finding the main door for some reason. Then felt silly when we finally found it. One of the few things that was a little bit of an issue was the moldy smell first thing when you walk in. It is pretty strong. And the air fresheners don't cover it. I also really hate air fresheners. I don't know if there is anything that can be done about it. But I got used to it and we kept the patio doors open. The house is dated so if you like new and modern it is not for you. Personally I thought it added to the charm and comfort for our family. It is well stalked with all the things you need to cook. Everything was clean except maybe some of the pots and pans that previous guests did not clean well. The property has amazing views. There was space for everyone to do there own thing and for all of us to be together also. We will definitely go back
Herbert M. October 2017
We have stay in many homes on the north coast. this is the the BEST!!!!!
Donna P. September 2017
We had a great time. The house and the views were fantastic! We all want to come back soon.
Rebecca F. September 2017
This home is the best place to relax and enjoy the view of the ocean, sunrise and sunsets. Very roomy and comfortable. We had four adults and two dogs. All were very happy to wake up every morning to see the views. The kitchen has all cooking tools necessary, one of the best supplied homes we have stayed in. One person even completed a puzzle, we loved staying here. Thank you to Vacasa and the owners for opening this home, to share with others.
Robert L. September 2017
Beautiful view right on the ocean
Ed H. August 2017
This property compares to none for the views. The deck outside of the kitchen was spectacular and comfortable with Adirondack chairs. We saw whales and the most beautiful sunset. It's unique in it's layout, and I agree with other reviews, that having two living areas is a bit of wasted space...maybe a pool table in the "green" room? That would have been a lot of fun! The hot tub outside offer great relaxation after shopping downtown in all the cute shops. Dining in Ft. Bragg has PLENTY to choose from! Overall, I would definitely come back to this property.
Kevin & Leigh M. August 2017
The ocean and the earth will speak at this location if you listen long enough.
Pamela C. July 2017
The house was situated on a bluff right on top of the ocean with little coves on the left and right. It is at the end of the road and is quite private. The layout was a little odd but the living room had a nice view of the ocean and there were decks going all the way around with lounge chairs to watch the waves. It was very quiet inside and we kept some of the doors ajar to listen to the crashing waves while reading or resting. We loved walking along the bluffs seeing all the wildflowers blooming, watching the sea and the seabirds, deer grazing nearby and walking down to tide pools and an empty beach where our dog could run and we could relax. Mendocino town and restaurants were only 8 minutes away and Fort Bragg was just 7 minutes away. The only issues we had were that there was no dishwasher and the fireplaces didn't work in the living room and master bedroom which was annoying but the fireplace in the small sitting room did work on gas.
Rick B. July 2017
Our stay was excellent - the house and location were beautiful! We are already planning our next vacation!!
John M. June 2017
This home is a sanctuary for anyone who enjoys unrivaled views of the pacific - with a high degree of privacy. Each trip ends with a preference to extend the reservation.
Lee P. April 2017
the views and private location of this home are over the top.

With that said, the house is in desperate need of updating. Grandma's furniture and decor detract from the enjoyment. The cushions on couches and chairs sag and are very uncomfortable. The bed upstairs made our backs ache all day the next day. Kitchen needs to be remodeled - still looks like it is right out of the 80's and if you are shorter than 5'6" - you won't be able to work at the counters without a stool as they are 3 inches higher than normal. No dishwasher - Definitely have to be able to climb stairs as one of the two bedrooms is only accessible by a spiral staircase and the main floor is up a flight of stairs too. So two bedrooms and three living rooms sort of make this home dysfunctional.

but all and all - we enjoyed our stay. the price does not reflect the condition of the house.
Manager Response:
We value the feedback we receive from our guests and appreciate these comments. The fact that the home does not have a dishwasher is noted in the property description. There are many interior photos of the home plus a virtual walk-through that we hope guests will view to determine if the property will meet their needs and expectations. We are glad this guest enjoyed their stay and hope to see them return to the Mendocino Coast.
Lisa S. March 2017
We were lucky enough to stay here again. We were here last year and knew we'd be back. Such a stunning property with over the top views! Again, we hardly left the house because we couldn't imagine a better view. It's very private and quiet. I highly recommend staying at Ocean Breeze.
Herbert M. February 2017
great views & location!!
Holly L. January 2017
We had a wonderful time. The location is close to town and shopping is great. We were able to see whales from the house. We will be coming back.
Clare L. December 2016
It is a well maintained and secluded house. The view is superb.
Ramona L. December 2016
A truly magical location to be perched on the edge of the contienent.i will never get tired of the ever changing view no matter what the weather.
Richard S. November 2016
Our few days at Ocean Breeze were wonderfully relaxing. Rain on the first day brought drama to the shore, and blue, sunny skies for the remainder of the visit let us wander in solitude over the bluffs. The hot tub was perfect. We thought we'd be eating in restaurants, but ended up buying groceries and cooking all our breakfasts and dinners, staring out at stunning views as we cooked and ate. Delightful.
Brian J. October 2016
The washer was out of service- The property manager asked what they could do to make this right. I suggested they have our laundry serviced off site and returned. That is exactly what they did. Excellent property management. (They picked it up and dropped it off. )
Bran L. October 2016
It was the nicest place we ever rented. The view was amazing.
Barbara J. September 2016
This is a place that you would love to have as a second home . Beautiful view and lots of things to do.
Michael F. August 2016
Quick getaway for our honeymoon. This place was perfect!
Deborah O. July 2016
Really enjoyed our stay... Would love to know a little history about the house.
Teresa C. July 2016
Ocean Breeze is a wonderful property! It has by far the best views of any home we have ever rented. The retro quirkiness of the home was absolutely charming!! Ocean Breeze will be our go-to house from now on. The spacious layout allowed for quiet private time and family gathering time, too. The only thing missing was the history of the property and home ... clearly there was a history and we wanted to learn all about it!
David S. July 2016
This house has the hands down best ocean views of any place we've rented over the years - truly spectacular. The photos do not do it justice. The very large hot tub is out at the end of the point of land the house is built on and is perfectly concealed by shrubs for privacy, yet there are plenty of "windows" in the foliage to see the ocean and beach. Some commenters have noted the house is "dated", which it is (late 1960's/early 1970's), but overall we did not find this to be a negative, rather it is part of its charm. We were very unhappy with the lack of cleanliness throughout the house and the kitchen stove was like cooking on cans of sterno or a camp stove. If we get assurances these problems are resolved, we'd definitely return.
Mike M. June 2016
Great house with an awesome location
Mihwa Y. June 2016
The view and location was awesome. A bit of odd layout though. There is a master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom downstairs and the other bedroom upstairs. Having three living rooms was a bit odd and waste of space I thought. And sharing only one bathroom upstairs was a little inconvenient.

Other than that everything was awesome and satisfactory.
Ricky O. May 2016
Great place and great location, would rent it again someday. The house is old looking but spacious. The only thing was the house has no access to the beach. You have to walk a quarter of a mile to get to the beach which was a bummer for us. The house was too big for 8 people, we fell asleep watching tv and the sound of the ocean waves.
Lisa K. May 2016
The location of this house is spectacular! EXTREMELY PRIVATE, Overlooking cliffs on three sides. No beach access from house; you must walk down the street. Not for little kids
as you are surrounded by cliffs. House a little dated, especially kitchen but quite clean. We had a great weekend and would stay again!
Chunchi C. April 2016
This house location is exceptional, the garden entry is beautiful, and yard landscape is well maintained with many blooming flowers. The house is spacious, and the view from the deck is just amazing.

We had a wonderful time here.

Best,

Chen's family
Gwen M. April 2016
Once in a lifetime spot when on the Northern California coast. Complete comfort. Delightful and absolutely Dazzling!
V C. March 2016
Second year at this beautiful home! A true gem! What a spectacular place to make memories with your Family! Our kids have made us promise that The Ocean Breeze has to be our go-to- spot every year in Fort Bragg & how could we say no?! The location is just lovely, the views are breathtaking, the house is perfect, clean and supplies everything and WE ALL LOVE IT THERE!!!!! Thank you for sharing your home with us!! See you in 2017
Betty G. March 2016
This home is the fifth home we have rented in Fort Bragg, the view of the ocean was by far the best out of the five. We watched the whales the whole time we were there off the deck. If there was any downfall it would be that there was no access to the beach.
Karen Z. March 2016
This house is so wonderful! It rained the entire time we were there and we still had a great time. We were able to play family games and walk down to the beach during brief times the rain let up....
What is nice is the view. It is lierally "on the bluffs" so watch your pets at the edge of the property. We loved watching the tide changes and looked up high tide and low tide for the times we were there , enjoying the high waves the storm brought,
The house gave a unique seperation for guests -providing a way to have sleeping arrangements without bedrooms.
I gave suggestions for improvements as asked, but this house is beautiful and very relaxing! It was a birthday present to me and I Loved it!
Linden L. March 2016
Perfect place for a getaway
Lisa S. March 2016
This place was amazing. We had plans to visit Russian Gulch, check out some lighthouses, go kayaking and see Glass Beach. There are two reasons why we didn't go. 1) It was hard to leave the amazing view and I couldn't imagine anything that tops it. 2) It was raining most of the time, which was fine with us because we like stormy weather. Instead of eating out daily, we decided to get groceries and cook at the house. We didn't want to leave! Honestly, I'd rather stay at Ocean Breeze than go to Cabo or anywhere else. We will definitely come back. This house has everything, even a crock pot, which we used! We celebrated our 25th anniversary here and couldn't imagine a better place to go. Thank you Vacasa!!!
John M. February 2016
With the advantage of this home's location on a peninsula, it has views of the ocean from nearly every window. Most visitors will find that their initial visit to this home will be one of many to come; it is by far better and more convenient than most alternative pleasurable vacations.
Joanne G. December 2015
Cozy and spacious unique home with incredible views and so close to ocean you can hear the waves crashing from every window. Wrap around full balcony is amazing. Great location on end of quiet road and so close to both Fort Bragg and Mendocino. Highly recommend it.
Ibe L. September 2015
Everything was as described. I read the other reviews for specific details. I would definitely stay again. The views were breathtaking. My only regret was I wished I had booked longer.
Christian R. September 2015
We loved it here. There's not much else to say but that it was perfect. Blew our expectations out of the water and up the cliff side into the hot tub. There were only two down sides. One is the dishwashing situation. 1.) If you plan on cooking a lot (which I suggest because the restaurants aren't great in the area) you will have to deal with picking the food particles out of the sink with your hands. 2.) there was a homeless man sleeping on the beach near the house for the entirety of the stay which made my girlfriend feel uncomfortable. But in-spite of those two things it was one of the best trips we have ever been on
Donna A. August 2015
The location is wonderful, you fall a sleep to the sound of ocean. Note that the main living space is only accessible via a flight of stairs. The house is clean, and well furnished. The main living room with the fireplace has a musty smell. The kitchen is well stocked with kitchen items, the gas stove cooks very slow - no high on the burners.
Marc M. June 2015
We spent our honeymoon at The Ocean breeze. We loved every minute of our stay. The house is comfortable and unique. The surroundings are truly magical and majestic. Three of us rattled around the house (our dog loved everything as well), but we wouldn't have had it any other way. We look forward to calling this our anniversary home.
Skyler B. June 2015
You feel like there is nobody else around with open views and plenty of state land to wander.
Min P. May 2015
Didn't want to leave here...
Christen B. May 2015
This location is beautiful. We had a wonderful time!
Jennifer W. April 2015
This home really is a fantastic and unique place. We always look forward to our visit and feel fortunate to have had the experience of listening to the pounding surf, watching the waves crash and knowing that the house brings happiness and peace to all who enter.
Vrisa C. April 2015
This beautiful home surpassed our expectations. The pictures truly do not do this house justice. The wraparound deck it's just amazing. The property is beautiful and the views of the ocean are just breathtaking. We will definitely be booking another vacation, but this time a lot longer!!!! Thank you owners, property managers and of course Vacasa, for making our family vacation experience something to talk about for years. Memories were made!! The house is comfortable for eight people. The kitchen supplied everything we needed (and more) and again, the beauties of the home are worth experiencing! If we had millions of dollars we would want to buy that house :)
RETURNING VERY SOON!!!!!!!
Manager Response:
What a fantastic review! We are absolutely delighted that you had such a wonderful time at this gorgeous vacation home. The views are so spectacular and we are glad to hear that the home had everything you could need and more. The owners take great care in ensuring the home is warm and welcoming for guests. It is certainly a beautiful property to be able to spend time with family and make special memories in. Thank you for sharing your comments with us! We look forward to seeing you again!
Lynn C. March 2015
Unbelievable house, beautiful and unique. So many excellent places to go nearby. Only downside was two beautiful beaches on either side with difficult beach access. Not recommended if you have kids who want to run around (cliffs) but we will definitely be back to stay!!!
Angela L. March 2015
The location is unbelievable! We saw whales while sitting on the deck. I would love to go back for a longer stay. House was very clean. The house was so amazing we spent most of our time there although we did also go to the botanical gardens and a local state beach. Loved that it was also dog friendly!
Deborah R. March 2015
The house was beautiful, pictures do not do justice. Kitchen well appointed, quality cookware, dinnerware, all the bedding and towels you need. No dishwasher was the only negative on the kitchen. Every room has its own heat controls, views galore. You are on the edge of the ocean with bluffs right outside the door to walk on, as well as a private beach that can be accessed on the right side, you just have to hunt it. Hot tub was clean well placed, protected yet with some ocean views. Beds and bedrooms were very comfortable. Living room as well, all rooms really. Cable, WiFi and a land-line. Cell phones pretty much are not workable in most areas along the coast. Fort Bragg however has great cell phone reception. Overall we loved the home and its unique craftsmanship. The home is so well insulated you had to open the window or door to hear the ocean which is directly off the house. We also loved the beautiful grounds, well maintained as well as the privacy, and again, the views. It was even better and more comfortable then I had imagined. For the night sky gazers it was outstanding with no city lights to distract. We were lucky enough to observe a rare 22 degree halo around the moon one evening. Something I had heard about but never have seen. SO to sum it up if your looking for a relaxing, quiet, beautiful ocean edge home this is it. Has everything you need just bring the change of clothes & shoes and your camera!
Jennifer H. February 2015
I was a bit skeptical as the ad for this home seemed too good to be true. But I am happy to report that it was everything it claimed to be! Can't wait to come back for an even longer stay...
Kerry B. February 2015
Beautiful property would go back again
Dale B. November 2014
My wife and I were so bedazzled when arriving at the property we were like kids at the candy store. we were amazed as to the proximity of the house to the private beach right below the balcony(low tide others can get to the private beach but we seen no one)
Totally private home. Also, some rentals I have been in have a minimum amount of cook wear, dishes, glasses, etc, but this place had more then I could ever use. the utensils were top quality with every thing imaginable was there for our use.
Ocean views from 80% of the home was a dream come true!
Donna M. November 2014
If I had millions of dollars, I would buy this house in a heart beat. But just staying there the weekend was a blessing. I will come back next time and stay a week. The house sitting is beautiful and I am very please with the comfort the house offered. It was located in a perfect sitting close to town but far enough to feel secluded.
Scott D. September 2014
We had 5 adults and one child. The setting is fantastic. The views are great as is the privacy. One car maximum rule is a little odd if the place sleeps 8 though. This is a very comfortable house that is close to Fort Bragg. Two bedrooms plus two hide-a-beds works great for 2 or 3 couples but one hide-a-bed is in the kitchen area which was ok because we put the 7 year old there. :) Two big thumbs up.
Manager Response:
Thanks for sharing your review. We love hearing back from guests who loved their stay. This home is fantastic and perfect for a family vacation. We'd like to clarify that the home does have parking for 4 cars, making a multi-family vacation easy!
Rob M. August 2014
Everything was great. The only thing I can help improve on is let everybody know there is no cell signal at all, Verizon or AT&T.. Finding front door difficult at first and in instruction Manuel where to find hot tub key. No Instructions on TV in north room.the last person had it on wrong channel and took a while to get programing back with no instructions. Enjoyed complete stay and will come back for sure. Thanks Rob.
Manager Response:
Thank you for this great feedback, we have added the info into the binder in the home.
Craig T. August 2014
We had a great time and would not have changed anything.
Marcia K. July 2014
We loved it. The house is beautiful and the property is amazing with awesome views on both sides, we took hikes to the beach on the property next to the house.
Manager Response:
Thank you for this feedback. This home is surrounded by gorgeous views since its perched right on the bluff overlooking the ocean. Its great to hear you enjoyed your stay with is. We hope you will come back soon.
