Great place to get away with the extended family. Clean, well stocked and large kitchen for group meals.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed this home. The outdoor space was wonderful, from the hot tub to the view of the beautiful sunsets over the firepit, Indoors, the house was stoked with everything we needed. My only downside is the strict 'don't leave the property' rule made it hard to do a morning stroll. However, I highly recommend for the house and access to the area.

The house was amazing! It had everything you needed to feel at home. We went with another family and the home layout was perfect because secondary bedrooms were separated from the master. We had a wonderful time, would love to go back very soon.

The home was beautiful and very well cleaned we enjoy the view.

Great house with good views. With enjoyed the bbq and the spa on the back deck. The kitchen was ready to cook in. They had everything anyone would ever need to cook. The kitchen island should be a little smaller to give better movement around the kitchen.

Our family spent the 3-day weekend with the Captain. Perfect place for quality time together. The views, and lucky for us sunsets, were incredible. The house layout worked well for multiple couples/families and the deck and hot tub were terrific for relaxing. The Albion location was also good for time spent in Mendocino, Ft. Bragg and the beach. Only drawbacks were the soft beds and the incredibly slow internet with no cell service. That said, “unplugging” was nice and I would recommend adding that to your plans! We were all happy with our selection of the Captain’s Place! (And If I could, I’d have rated it a 4.5. Good mattresses would have made this a 5)

We loved the captain's place! It was open and spacious, and definitely light and Airy. There was plenty of room what are party of 7 and we especially loved the three bathrooms. Personally, the views of the night skies from the master bed and bedroom were spectacular! I awoke at 2:30 a.m. to see the Big Dipper and North Star and other constellations as I lay in bed. Can't think of a better way to go back to sleep.

The property was well maintained, furnished well, relaxing, beds were great and the layout for our family was perfect. We were seven adults who were experiencing a sudden loss of our Son, husband and father. We ranged from age 85 to 25. Captains Cove afforded us a place to begin the healing process in a beautiful and quiet place.

The Captains Place is a lovely house. Very large living and entertaining area, large master bedroom and small but comfy secondary bedrooms.
The spa on the deck is an excellent touch. Best enjoyed after a long hike or first think on a cool misty morning.
The house was great value for the number of rooms, however be aware that this is not ocean front, and the ocean views are quite filtered. You are looking directly at other houses/properties which are close to the water and you're not allowed to venture onto their land. I think that having this is the listing would be great so as not to let down expectations of guests. It still remains great value for what it is, just not actually as ocean front as it's ship captain themed decor.

Beautiful house and views
Cynthia P. May 2019
Great getaway for our annual Pinot Festival weekend with 7 friends. Beautiful ocean views and the home is exceptionally well maintained with all the necessities. Conveniently located and just a short dive to Mendocino Village.

Clean style, not cluttered with so many knick knacks! Everything was perfect and quiet. The master bedroom and the three other bedrooms are on the opposite side of the house. Plenty of seating in the great room with a view of the water. We used the hot tub every morning and viewed the rainbows over the ocean. The firepit was perfect while we roasted marshmallows and did some star gazing. Loved the locked gate at the entrance. Only 12 minutes from Mendocino. This house is on the top of our list when we fly back over to Little River!

Beautiful ocean view. Lots of windows. Privacy. Spacious and well appointed. Large, fully equipped kitchen. Master bedroom plus three other bedrooms. 3 total full baths. Perfect for our 3 family get together.

Just WOW! The pictures don't do this magical home justice. The layout of the home is perfect for a gathering of friends or family. The fact that there is a leather recliner for every person and a private room per couple was amazing. The views from the deck are to die for. Coming together around the fire pit was nice the final night. Also using the hot tub, which was hot when we arrived! We cooked 3 family meals in the kitchen and ate around the large dining table. I will advise any future guest to bring your own spices/oil but the house does have plenty of utensils and pans. This truly is a dream getaway, we hope to return soon!

Loved this gorgeous and comfortable home. We spent the majority of our time inside because it rained all weekend, but the reclining couches were so comfortable that we didn't mind at all. Loved having so many bathrooms and lots of natural light. Overall a great experience. Would definitely recommend!

We stayed at The Captain's Place for four nights over New Years, and were completely happy with our stay.

The house has four proper bedrooms and plenty of space for lounging and dining, plus a big deck and kitchen. The kitchen was well stocked, there were games & magazine for entertainment, and the hot tub provided an extra level of relaxation.

Given that this house seems new to the rental market, there are a few things that were missing - only 4 towels provided for the hot tub despite allowing 8 guests, no stereo or capability for music, no napkins in the house, etc., but nothing majorly detracted from our stay.

We'd recommend The Captain's Place for a Mendocino getaway- the location on the coast, the hot tub, and the large entertaining area is perfect for the group, plus Vacasa's hospitality can't be beat. Thanks again!

Loved the location of the house and layout. A little bummed we couldn’t walk down to the end of the road to see the ocean up close but not a deabreaker. Fireplace and hotub are highlights.
