Oceanfront home w/ jetted tub; deck & wonderful views; walk to beach

This oceanfront three-bedroom, three bath Mendocino vacation rental home is the perfect setting for kicking back with friends and family, enjoying a glass of wine on the patio and watching the waves roll in. This home sets up on a bluff, which allows for a fantastic view. Set back from the edge of the ocean so one can observe varied wildlife grazing with the Pacific sunset as a backdrop you and five other guests will love every minute spent at Sunset Point!

Centrally located, you'll be a short drive to either Fort Bragg or Mendocino Village. Take a quick walk to the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens for a truly floral experience and gorgeous ocean backdrop.

Ocean focused and single level, almost every room in this relaxed open floor-plan home is designed to maximize beach views. A large westward facing deck, living room windows and a telescope in the living room and sound dock allows for endless hours of whale watching, storm surveillance and sunset soirees.

The viewing room is a masterpiece, with oceanfront full windows, a large persian rug framed by an ocean-facing sofa and plush swivel chairs to choose whether to take in the ocean views or participate in what's happening indoors. Victorian inspired patterns and designs lead you into the second sitting area, again with full ocean views, two sofas in front of a TV with DVD player and a wood-burning stove.

Drift into the updated gourmet-sized kitchen for a casual lunch, or utilize the fully stocked appliances and equipment for a formal evening seating. Granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, light wooden cabinetry and an ocean view are sure to inspire a sincerely Pacific culinary creation!

Two king suites each have unique features - one has a luxurious, almost decadent ocean view bathroom with a Jacuzzi for two & a separate walk-in shower with dual showerheads; the other has sliding doors to a private deck with ocean views. The queen bedroom has views of the front garden. The family/entertainment room is a separate cozy room; a great room for games, watching TV or using your laptop on the home's WIFI. Up to six people will find the varying room layout a perfect design for traveling couples, families and friends!

Fully embrace your settings with a few nights spent playing in the large backyard, or impress your group with fresh lobster barbecued on the gas grill, and finish off sipping a famous local wine while lounging in the patio furniture. Speaking of outdoor amenities, parking is a dream as this home features three spaces outside of the garage!

The Fort Bragg and Mendocino area offers a wide array of outdoor, nautical themed activities as well as classic Northern California culture. Spend the whole day under the sun visiting parks like the Otis Johnson Wilderness Park within city limits, Pomo Bluffs Park along the headlands overlooking the Noyo inlet, and MacKerricher State Park with miles of sandy beaches. Or take a trip to the amazing Glass Beach, world famous for its natural recycling and polishing process of dumped glass. Keep up the activity with a horseback ride down the beach, sea kayaking, or wild edible mushroom tour! Looking for a more leisurely experience? Take a ride on the acclaimed Skunk Train, schedule a wine tour through the array of local vineyards, or settle down for lunch at Laurel's Deli in the Depot shopping mall - known for it's yummy fresh-made desserts!

A wonderful home for adult couples, friends and families of up to six looking to leave the maddening bustle of the city behind! You will find all you were looking for and more with this Northern California oceanfront getaway.

We had been all very overwhelmed and lost before arriving at this home. This home gave us hope and peace. It is beautiful and serine. Just what we needed. Couldn't have ask for a better vacation in such a trying time. We didn't even leave except to do laundry and shop.
Lisle H. Nov 2018
WOW what an amazing house. Wild deer in the yard in the morning and amazing sunsets in the evening. The home was located right next to the Botanical Gardens and this is highly recommended. Thank you Vacasa for everything my family and I are looking forward to coming back next year
Janice T. Oct 2018
The view is amazing.
Loretta K. Oct 2018
The house was great, views spectacular, had a wonderful time.
Cynthia P. Aug 2018
The View!! And the large kitchen!!
Anne K. Jul 2018
It's a beautiful house in a beautiful location. I enjoyed being there.
Vaishali M. Jul 2018
The house is on a bluff next to the botanical garden. We enjoyed watching sunsets and the stargazing at night. There are many restaurants and grocery shops within a couple of miles. It's nice place to relax with your family while enjoying the beautiful ocean.
Rick S. Jul 2018
When we turned off Hwy 1 down the VERY long driveway to get to the house, we were not sure what to expect. When we got there we were totally thrilled by the setting and the accommodations. They exceeded all our expectations. We were there to celebrate our 38th Anniversary and could not have picked a better spot. If we left during the day, we always made sure we got home to watch the sunsets. They were spectacular. Also, this house is central to everything anybody could want to do. We hope to return someday!
Meng C. Jun 2018
We had great time and definitely will recommend to friends!
Sandra C. Jun 2018
Loved my stay, just wished that the kitchen had more. For example plates, plastic cups, freezer door that opens all the way, and griddle. The wi-fi is HORRIBLE, need to upgrade to higher speed please. Had to go to Starbucks just to send some emails and post pics on Facebook.
Steven J. May 2018
This home is very spacious, well appointed, with lots of beautiful ocean scenery in your front yard. Two very large bedrooms plus a third, each with their own bathrooms allow for three couples to comfortably spend time. And with a "viewing room" as well as a living room and den, there is plenty of opportunity to find a cozy spot to read a book, listen to music, watch tv, or best of all, watch the ocean. The kitchen is very large allowing for several people to work on meals, drinks, or whatever without running into each other. There are enough pots/pans/ etc to prepare meals, if you like. We had a deer come through the yard in the morning, birds during the day, and many flowers and plants to look at if you get tired of your front window view.
Susan W. Apr 2018
Beautiful location and property.
Rod F. Apr 2018
We did love the property and the view… Unfortunately for us, it rained every day we were there so we will try again another time !!
Lance R. Mar 2018
We loved the house and property. It had everything we needed.
Donald B. Jan 2018
This home is located such that you get great views of the surf and bluffs. The viewing room shown in the pictures is great. You can sit with your morning coffee, watching the surf, and the whales, depending on the right time of the year. The home is quite large. One wing is a large master bedroom with a huge walk in closet and bathroom. With three sinks, a massive walk in shower, and a separate jacuzzi tub. The opposite end of the house has another “master “ sized bedroom with attached bath. It has its own sitting room, as if the house was designed for this to be a separate living space. This one alone would have been considered a good sized master suite in any other home. Between, is a bit smaller bedroom with a queen bed and bathroom just outside the door. You are down a gravel drive a few hundred yards. This gets you away from highway 1 and any traffic noise. The kitchen is very large with way more cabinets than you need and acres of granit counter tops. We ate in a few times and once cooked for 6. There was enough room in the kitchen for 3-4 people to be working on various meal projects at once.

As others have said there are some issues with the operation of the windows, and as I expected the internet is fairly slow. Good for emails and messages but not fast enough to stream Netflix etc. we worked around these issues and had a great time.

Heather G. Jan 2018
We had a wonderful time exploring the wineries in the Anderson Valley and enjoyed our lovely ocean view!
Susie A. Jan 2018
This house is a wonderful, comfortable place to stay for a family or for several couples. The view will take your breath away. We would come back in heartbeat.
Patricia L. Jan 2018
This home sits on the bluffs next to the Botanical Garden. It is a beautiful home with an amazing view. You can whale watch from the living and dining rooms!
Rachel F. Jan 2018
One of the best locations in fort Bragg. The home is very large and perfect for a large group.
Barbara W. Jan 2018
Overall a great house. Friends of ours stayed here, before house was built and it was a trailer on the property. They recognized the view and next to the gardens.
Pat W. Nov 2017
We enjoyed our Thanksgiving stay very much. Very clean and comfortable. Weather was beautiful and very family friendly. Wish the property was dog friendly.
York . Oct 2017
Its not only the luxurious equipment (living room, kitchen, baths, veranda) and the stunning view with awsome sunsets, but it was in particular the feeling the somebody created this house with creative ideas and with love for details as a family home.
There are so many spots you can sit and watch the ocean, that you would have to spend weeks for using them all, depending on the direction of sun, wind etc.
There was only one real disadvantage - the day we had to leave .....
We hope to come back
Patricia S. Sep 2017
Spacious house with beautiful views of ocean. Big kitchen and large open area connecting dining and living rooms. Only complaints are windows have no screens so couldn't open them to cool house in afternoon and evening when sun directly hit house and saggy old mattress in king bedrooms.
Joe L. Sep 2017
BEST VIEWS GREAT HOUSE
Carol B. Sep 2017
Great home. Excellent floor plan. Huge well equipped kitchen to enable 3 cooks to work together. Plenty of separate seating areas so we were not all scrunched together. One could read quietly or nap while others were nosily playing cards or board games in another family room. There were 3 rooms that we all could gather in at the same time as well. It truly has the best floor plan and ocean views of any house we have ever rented. Everyone was happy.
Peggy A. Aug 2017
Love it
David B. Aug 2017
A very special place in a truly beautiful and easy to access location! everything as advertised!
Rosemary B. Aug 2017
This home is luxurious but very comfortable at the same time. You can see the planning that went into the design and construction of it through the years. It shows such pride of ownership. We love the location of Sunset Point which is right next to the Mendocino Botanical Gardens (one of favorite places to visit). Our family group consisted of 2 children, 2 grandparents, and one 90 year old great grandmother. Everyone enjoyed all the splendor of the area. We really didn't want to go home!
Johan L. Aug 2017
If your looking for your next home for vacation this is the place, the minute you step in it says" Welcome home we miss you" ! My mother wants to come back with the rest of family and maybe do a holiday! Xmas sounds like a wonderful place to visit!
James R. Jul 2017
This is a top notch location to take in great sunsets and relax!!
Richard L. Jun 2017
This is a lovely place to spend time just sitting on the porch and watching the ocean. It is quiet and yet easy access to Fort Bragg and surrounding areas. Bedrooms are spacious and bathrooms are plentiful.
Lisa M. May 2017
Views were spectacular. Weather was perfect. Property was beautiful and very comfortable.
Linda C. May 2017
Sunset Point is comfortable well-appointed house privately situated with a panoramic ocean view. The interior living space seems to go on and on with two master suites and a third bedroom allowing for ample privacy, while all of the communal living spaces take advantage of the spectacular views.
Janet S. Apr 2017
We loved the place--spacious, comfortable and quiet. We loved to view if the ocean!
Hollie P. Apr 2017
This house is absolutely stunning and you cannot beat the view. We were here for a laid back bachelorette weekend and it was in the perfect spot for us. We were close to both Fort Bragg and Mendocino. I was worried that it was to close to the busy road but it so far from the road that you don't even notice. We were actually able to see 2 whales on 2 different days from the back porch and that was a first for me. I would recommend this house to anyone as it has everything you could want except for a hot tub.
Patricia L. Jan 2017
This is one of our favorite places to stay on the north coast. The home is beautiful and comfortable, with unbeatable ocean views. It is close enough to town to make getting food easy, but it is very private and feels secluded. Lovely!
Kelsey C. Jan 2017
We decided to head up the coast for New Years and wanted a spot with a view to the ocean. Not only did this location have a view, but direct access! You can see the view from multiple rooms in the house. Just amazing. It has a large kitchen for cooking and a small fireplace which really set the mood. We grabbed dinner at Wild Fish, a small dining restaurant, in Mendocino. We went on multiple walks around the area as well. I would highly recommend this place!
Claire T. Dec 2016
Beautiful views, great area, wonderful house and amenities.
Mark S. Dec 2016
The views from the house are amazing!! The only thing that bothered me was the price per night. We were quoted $350. 00 per night. It actually came out closer to $500. 00 a night, once taxes, booking fees, cleaning fees and other incidentals are addded. It was a beautiful pice of property. Next time I would split cost with another couple.
SUNG Y. Nov 2016
We had wonderful family trip
Susan M. Nov 2016
We love Sunset Point. We discovered it last year. It's a perfect getaway, has a beautiful view, and is a wonderful setting to reconnect with family.
Linda M. Oct 2016
Loved the setting , comfortable furnishings, great view. Kitchen is large and well stocked. Lovely master suite.
Chris M. Oct 2016
This house is amazing. There is so much room - and it's all on one floor! It was very clean. The small touches the homeowners have in place were appreciated! (shampoo, soap, plenty of towels, collection of paperbacks, some games, a telescope for whale watching, a very well-stocked kitchen! The property is huge! The view out the back is incredible! We had so much to do there and never drove more than 12 miles to do them! (Beaches, lighthouses, seaglass museum, Pacific Star winery, Skunk train, Botanical gardens.) Our schedule was full! Then we'd come back to cook dinner at the property. Perfect. Oh - and the sunset views - wow!
Anthony S. Oct 2016
Nice, large property with an awesome view.
Matthew B. Oct 2016
I'm sorry, such a great place don't wan't too share. No serious, if coastal relaxing is what your looking for, this is the perfect property ( soo jealous not mine).
Pamela M. Oct 2016
We stayed here with another family and our toddlers. The area is amazing (seafood, hikes, swimming holes, grocery stores). And the house is perfect for a comfy, casual stay.
Charlene P. Sep 2016
The experience was wonderful!
Nathalie C. Sep 2016
Great place, would have been better with internet
Manager response:
We apologize that the internet was down during this guest's stay. We would have been able to take care of the issue had we been notified. We discovered after this reservation that the landline was down, but AT&T has fixed it and the internet is up and running again.
Sandra K. Aug 2016
The home was very comfortable and inviting. The view was great. We all enjoyed looking at the photos and reading the history about the house. The only suggestion I have is for you to bring your own fry pans. Everything stuck to theirs.
Manager response:
It’s so wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the history of the home. We want to thank you for your feedback and are happy to announce that two new non stick pans have been added to the kitchen. We are excited to see you back to create more fond memories.5497
Porter C. Aug 2016
A wonderful property to enjoy with friends & family. The location & views are FABULOUS!! Kitchen very well equipped & large enough to work in with others-the privacy of the property is a real plus-Enjoy your stay-we did-PC
Alexander J. Aug 2016
Beautiful and great time with family and friends. I will be back in two months. Thank you for sharing your home.We had a blast.
Sheila R. Aug 2016
It was a beautiful place to stay while seeing my nephew get married next door in Hollys Meadow.
Benaifer D. Aug 2016
Great home and beautiful location.
Stuart A. Jul 2016
Just does not get any better!
Kathy Y. Jul 2016
Beautiful home and location.
Roman K. Jul 2016
Hi there.
I would really recommend this house for long vacation or few days escape.
We loved this property and will be back there.
House and surrounding property is huge, open, secluded and perfectly located.
House has amassing view and big windows. It is located right on cliff with ocean access. We were spearfishing right there near the house in secluded cove.
Property is smartly organized. Wild life walking there throughout .
I don't want to write to much. I recommend to visit this house, you are going to love it! We did.
Becky O. Jun 2016
Great spot with incredible views. And the Gardens next door are a wonderful place to spend the day. The house is very large but you will probably spend most of your time out on the deck enjoying that view!
Peggy A. May 2016
The place is great except for the small repairs mentioned above. The view and location are perfect and the house Is wonderful
Aaron J. May 2016
We brought Mom and our boys 9, 6 and 1 for a fun ocean weekend. This place was great!! Drove bout 5 minutes away to Casper for beach fun. We were so lucky and saw whales from the house! Also took the steep stairs down to the tide pools with the two older boys and went exploring. They loved it and didn't want to leave!!! Next time we are staying longer! Loved the privacy and all the beautiful scenery!!
Karen F. May 2016
A wonderful way to celebrate Mother's Day with either family or friends. Gorgeous ocean views, plenty of room and privacy. I didn't think three bathrooms was important but it made no waiting, and added to the privacy factor. Clean with lots of amenities, two TV's but only used one. A view of the Botanical Gardens, a visit a must as rhododendrons in full bloom. Very large kitchen--room for everyone!
Steve G. Mar 2016
Well, we didn't actually get to experience a sunset at this property (due to the weather,) but it hardly mattered! Every aspect of our visit was excellent. The residence is not only beautiful, it is well-supplied and well-maintained. The long driveway can be a bit of a challenge in really bad weather, but this was a truly memorable experience. In good weather, I'm sure there would not be any issues at all. We would not hesitate to return!
Gina D. Mar 2016
the perfect spot to recharge and enjoy a spectacular view!
Claudia H. Mar 2016
House is more spacious than the photos.
Everything we needed was there.
Mia T. Feb 2016
The secluded bluff overlooking the ocean is remarkable. We watched the tide go out and found fun things to look at in the tide pools.
The stairs lead down to a rocky area with tide pools-- not to a beach.

The house has a great layout. Beds are comfy. Nice jacuzzi tub. Fireplace is cozy.

Overall the furnishings are outdated and a little dingy feeling. But homey.

The only real problem we had was the strong musty smell in the main part of the house. Smells like a mold situation. I got a headache from it the first night. We luckily brought our air purifier and left the windows open most of the time for fresh air.

This was a very memorable trip for our family.
Jerry J. Jan 2016
Prime location for watching the waves roll in. Enjoyed every minute of our stay.
Bruce H. Dec 2015
Very comfortable with the home maintained as described. Would definitely enjoy a return with less stormy weather.
Elisia G. Nov 2015
My friends and I truly enjoyed the magnificent views from this house. Tons of space for the kids to explore. Deer and wildlife everywhere. We will definitely be back!
Marjorie D. Oct 2015
We enjoyed our stay very much. A very nice and very clean home. We enjoyed the view and watching the deer every morning. The home had everything we needed. Would love to return next year. Thank you . October 2015
Richard D. Oct 2015
Wonderful home, great views and a great long weekend. Would definitely stay again. ...
Sandra F. Oct 2015
The feeling of "ahh" when you first walk thru the door stays with you the entire visit! What more needs to be said?
Gwynn S. Sep 2015
The location was ideal. The beautiful scenery and quiet setting made it easy to relax and unwind. The ocean view was breathtaking. Loved the deer coming through the yard.
The home is quite spacious and would make a great place for a family gathering!
Benjamin M. Jul 2015
Peaceful, secluded, scenic. This is a great getaway. Lots of outside space to play and enjoy. We will definitely be back.
Heidi A. Jul 2015
This house was a great place for our family to enjoy time together. This house was beautiful, and there was plenty of torn for us to enjoy ourselves without feeling like we were on top of each other. We can't wait to go back again!
Janet C. Jul 2015
Was beautiful property, with wonderful view.
Close to Mendocino & Ft Bragg.
Jessica O. Jul 2015
This was my first time renting a place with Vacasa and I was very happy with the service. After booking the rental house, I had a question about my confirmation email which was quickly taken care of. I also asked about the phone at the house since there was a bad review about that. The person I talked to said they would check on it and call me back. Within the hour they called me back with the information I requested.

Our family thought the house was great (there's 4 of us). It is very spacious and has just about everything you need. It looks just like the pictures advertised.

I was a little hesitant to book this house after reading one review but pretty much everything turned out to be fine. So I'm going to address those things written in the other review for anyone concerned:

The phone - we could call out locally, there was no code needed.

The view - we could see the beach perfectly fine from the house - The shrubs don't interfere from the view unless you're looking to the right from the house.

Wifi - it was a little slow but worked just fine

Cell service - if you have AT&T it's hard to get service anywhere in Fort Bragg - it's not the house.

The windows - they were clean and most of them had screens

Patio Chairs - there were 4 plastic adronik chairs

Jacuzzi - we were able to fill it up with hot water.

Stocked kitchen - we didn't cook much but it seemed to have all the basics. The only thing I couldn't find was a tea kettle.

Overall, I think this place is a good value for what you get. Our family is already talking about planning another trip here next year!

Michael K. May 2015
Excellent place and location. We really enjoyed our stay.
Arlie H. Apr 2015
This is a home, not a hotel room. It's warm, welcoming, and very comfortable. The toughest part was having to leave. I can't wait to return! Soon!
Jim C. Mar 2015
A very spacious and lovely home right on the Mendocino Coast. Secluded yet five minutes to Fort Bragg. Perfect for three couples. A place you will want to return to.
Manager response:
Thank you for your 5 star review! We're glad to hear you enjoyed this home and it's proximity to Ft Bragg. The ocean views and beach access are amazing. We look forward to seeing you soon! Thank you for choosing Vacasa!
Judy E. Feb 2015
This is a gem, right on the ocean with the Botanical gardens on one side. Home is comfortable to accommodate 6. Would return again
Leona K. Feb 2015
We have used Vacasa twice now in the last 6 months! We have been pleased with the rentals and the rental process both times. The homes are clean and tidy and everything in states that they are. We will surely look for rentals from Vacasa in the future!!
Manager response:
Thank you for this great review! We would love for you to visit Vacasa again soon!
Jean B. Jan 2015
This was a fabulous rental home. Comfortable, spacious and in a great location. We were overwhelmed with the accommodations. Internet did not work well but we also were trying to contact the provider on holiday time so that may be the reason. Had to go buy shampoo but had to buy groceries anyway. Really no complaints, only thank you for a great family experience.
Donna S. Nov 2014
This a beautiful house and grounds. We saw deer , jays, other birds and squirrels. A hot tub would be wonderful. Kitchen and appliances were high end and easy to use. We would consider coming again.
James M. G. Oct 2014
Very nice home with a lot of beautiful scenery. Excellent place to get away for a week or longer.
Kelly E. Sep 2014
The home we rented had one of the most beautiful views on the coast. Huge lot and very secluded. Perfect sunsets!
