Waterfront home with spectacular and memorable views

This Fort Bragg vacation rental boasts a private oceanfront parcel, as well and unique foliage and wildlife. It's the perfect getaway for anyone looking to be soothed by the beautiful sounds of the ocean.

Just north of the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens and near Digger Creek, this home's not far from the action. Downtown Fort Bragg is a stone's throw away, as are the other charming hamlets along the coast.

An all-redwood interior and numerous picture windows make this a highly desirable vacation residence; spend hours watching the waterfront panorama as you let your tensions melt away.

This large ranch abode is sure to delight. The vaulted ceilings and open floor plan make the already expansive space feel even more spacious. The living area features a carpet and cozy chairs for lounging. A gas fireplace is the focal point and occupies a space near the flatscreen TV and a wall festooned with duck artwork.

The modern kitchen is a gourmand's delight with a massive island, dishwasher, black cupboards, fridge, and matching gas range. There are plenty of kitchen accouterments to whip up a chef-worthy repast in no time. Craft a delicious breakfast and serve it at the four-seat breakfast bar, or dine on a larger meal at the four-seat table overlooking the ocean.

The bedroom features a cushy queen-size bed ideal for relaxing at the end of the day.

Head down the wooden steps to gaze at the beautiful Pacific Ocean. A new deck runs the length of the house where you can take excellent advantage of the whitewater vistas. You'll be able to stay well-connected as this home comes with WiFi.

Once a collection of sleepy fishing villages, the Mendocino Coast now boasts myriad food and adventure activities. Enjoy touring the Victorian homes in historic Mendocino Village. Try your hand at kayaking via Liquid Fusion Kayaking in Fort Bragg, or spend a rainy day at the Triangle Tattoo and Museum, showcasing Maori tattoo art from the 1800s. Craft beer aficionados will love the opportunity to sip a microbrew at North Coast Brewing Company before grabbing a delicious dinner.

Whatever your pleasure, a stay at this gorgeous, updated oceanfront Northern California vacation rental is sure to be a delight!

We loved how the home was not only Secluded, but it was right at the edge of the ocean cliff. Home was exceptionally clean, very spacious for two occupants. The only problem we had was that the barbecue would not light.

This is our second visit to this home. If you want a place with awesome ocean views and sounds, you can’t go wrong here. The garden as you enter is a soothing welcome. Since we cook all our meals in, the kitchen is a highlight for us. Stocked with everything from utensils to an array of spices. This home is private and quiet with ocean views that can’t be beat. The hot tub is placed so you can watch waves as you relax. The bed is comfortable and the home is very clean and homey.
We hope to return again.
Daniel J. Mar 2020
This home was amazing! Quiet, private, and with amazing views. We can’t wait to book again!

Mattress could be replaced for firmer support.
Well equipped kitchen with many utensils.
Quiet location, very peaceful/restful.
Def. will stay again.

The privacy and view is to die for. Thank you for sharing your home.
Richard H. Jan 2020
We arrived the day before a spectacular winter storm causing incredible wave action. Shortly before the arrival of the big waves we sat and watched the water spouts from the migrating Wales. Incredibly. The home was well appointed and very comfortable. Had a great time. The roar of the ocean was a little deafening but ultimately added to the experience. We will be back
Terry H. Sep 2019
Upon entering home, jaw dropping beautiful view. We didn't want to leave for other exploring of area.
We have vacationed many years in the area and, thus home has been the best find!
Thanks for sharing your Wonderful Home.

Beautiful place with gorgeous views. No issues with this place (other than the price)
Donice P. Aug 2019
Great location and loved the geese stoping by
Chris H. Aug 2019
Really enjoyed this place. The only disappointment was the lack of any shade on the deck. This time of year it's in the sun SO much, it would have been nice to have an umbrella or somehting to, Otherwise, not much to be unhappy about.
Nicole L. Apr 2019
This home was everything - well appointed, comfortable, clean. The views were amazing and location was perfect! The home is close enough town but felt secluded as it sits on the edge of the bluff. Truly a wonderful home. Thank You to the local team that is caring for this beautiful property!
Derek F. Apr 2019
The setting, hot tub, and views were incredible. We also really loved how well stocked the kitchen was.
Bj l. Mar 2019
Very cozy! Only wish is that the steps down to the tide pools where further so we could go there during low tide otherwise awesome place!! Would love to go agine if the steps are repaired it would make it even better!!
Ellen P. Feb 2019
Loved our stay.
Hilary Z. Dec 2018
Between the ocean in your front yard, the splendid Mendocino Botanical Garden next door, and the towns of Mendocino and Fort Bragg to the south and north, this is a perfect coast location.
Melodie M. Oct 2018
The view was to die for!!
G W M. Sep 2018
Great location! Not just as far as the beautiful panaramic ocean view, but close accessibility to the botanical gardens and both Fort Bragg an Mendocino as well! Everything needed (and more) was there. Even just sitting at the kitchen “nook “ table and playing dominoes with the spectacular view was wonderful. And of course enjoying the spa/ view !
Michael S. Aug 2018
beautiful bluff front, whitewater views, 2 private coves, fully stocked kitchen and hot tub with view--Perfect
Thomas F. Aug 2018
beautiful home and magnificent views,very private
Ann Z. Jul 2018
After being diagnosed with cancer, my husband wanted me to go on a short vacation before my chemo treatments started. Tideaway was just simply perfect. So serene and peaceful. Well stocked and clean. We would recommend to family and friends.

Carol A. Jun 2018
Beautiful home, well maintained, well stocked, with an incredible view. Easy to access. Would definitely stay here again.
Joanne B. Jun 2018
This house was right on the top of a cliff with breathtaking ocean views from every room. What a treat to lie in bed, watching and hearing the waves. Completely & utterly private. Brave souls could climb down the wooden stairs and jump onto the rocks and go tidal pooling! Easy 5 min walk to the Botanical Gardens. The house was immaculate and had every modern amenity -- but the views & privacy were fabulous -- an unprecedented find. We will be back again and again.
Jason M. May 2018
My wife and I spent the weekend at Tideaway. House is clean, comfortable, well stocked, and as advertised. Being on the ocean certainly provided the relaxation and ambiance we were looking for. Everything worked and is well maintained. We had a pleasant stay and would recommend to anyone.
Poh W Y. May 2018
It's stunning views, private location, tranquility, and conveniently located to many point of interest
Maria H. Apr 2018
We loved everything!!! Thank you!!
Thea S. Apr 2018
Roomy, clean, pleasant house with ocean views from every window. Great location
Joel B. Apr 2018
I hesitate to give a glowing review and let the secret out because this place felt like a hidden gem. We loved our stay. It's tucked away on a bluff with amazing views, but only a few min car ride to Ft Bragg groceries and restaurants. It also has one the most well-stocked kitchens we've had in a rental. It's the perfect setting for a couple looking to fully unwind and appreciate the beauty of the Mendocino Co Coast.
DAVID L. Apr 2018
we had the best time it was so beautiful, the view from every where in the house seen the ocean, very clean inside and outside, 2 Geese come in a couple times a day, and you can feed them, can't wait to come back thank you so much for sharing your home David & Patricia
Hilary Z. Feb 2018
Sun-splashed blue skies, and days that were alternately blustery, freezing cold, nearly balmy. Had hail, glassy waters and roiling waves. Just what I'd hoped for in an ocean stay. Lovely garden out front. Tideaway is a gem, inside and out.
Martha K. Jan 2018
Incredible private location with the ocean in your backyard. Views of the ocean throughout the house. Tideaway offers a symbiotic blend of sleek modern, rustic with an elegant European flair. Furnishings were quality and very comfortable. We will definitely make a return visit to this lovely little treasure.
The Canada Goose out in the backyard were icing on the cake!
Ron W. Dec 2016
When we arrived and opened the door my Wife and I were excited , the redwood interior was nice and my Wife loved the Kitchen ( Black Cabinets went well with the décor ) It felt very Homey to us and the house was very well stocked with everything we could want. The views were awesome ! Didn't use the hot tub much as it was very cold and rainy ,but made good use of our time Relaxing We enjoyed so much we dove a couple hours and back for our 12 year old Son to enjoy the last 2 - Days .

Was spectacular overall
Christine W. Oct 2016
We have stayed at other homes and motels in the area.
Now we have found our "perfect " second home in Fort Bragg
Lynda A. Oct 2016
Tideaway is so exceptionally comfortable and private, and the views so spectacular, that nothing could make it any more wonderful. Beds are so comfortable and so are the furnishings.
Brittany S. Jul 2016
I just want to start out by saying that this house was perfect. The process leading up to our stay was very organized and informative. The house was perfect for our stay and had everything we could possibly need and more. It felt like home! It was very clean and not one thing out of place. This was my first experience renting a home and you made it perfect for my family getaway. I will definitely be back to stay here. Just want to thank you for making my first vacation in a very long time as perfect as I could have wanted it. I have told so many people about this house. :) See you soon.
Walter M. Jun 2016
very nice property. Nice noise of the ocean. a comfortable home. I would like to come back.
Jack S. May 2016
It is a wonderful property. Perfect for 2 couples. Be back next year!!
Tom W. Apr 2016
This was our second stay at the Tideaway. The location and view cannot be beat. We love this seaside stay and will be back for more.
Gayla B. Apr 2016
The ocean view from the deck and hot tub was beautiful! We were able to see some whales and seals!! All of the bedrooms had incredible views of the ocean. The fishing was great and we enjoyed the privacy! We will definitely be back ????
Wendi L. Mar 2016
Tideaway is a comfortable, spacious house with over the top amazing views! If you're looking for a private location that is close to town with views to die for then this is the place for you! Tideaway worked out perfectly for our family spring break vacation! We will definitely come back to stay! Tideaway exceeded all of our expectations and more!
Kristi C. Feb 2016
The view was spectacular. Walking distance to Botanical gardens.
Scott S. Dec 2015
We were 2 small families staying in Fort Bragg together for a few days so we could take the kids on the X-Mas Skunk Train which was 5 minutes away. The house had a wonderful warmness and charm to it and the view could not have been better. We were lucky enough to be there during a storm and the roar and crash of the huge waves was awesome to watch and feel in your bones. A truly great spot.
Sonja G. Nov 2015
We came for a couples retreat and this was the absolute perfect house for this. it is secluded and an absolutely amazing view with a short drive to get to all of the local attractions -
Loretta K. Oct 2015
Just a great location to explore the many things the Fort Bragg ,Mendocino area has to offer.
Lisa B. Sep 2015
Right on the edge of the cliff was the perfect place to watch the waves all the time during our visit.. We loved how each bedroom had an openable window looking out on the ocean so that we could listen to the waves all night long. The big living room which had the kitchen on one end was so comfortable and convenient. We had to pry ourselves out of the hot tub at night because the stars and waves were so beautiful! Very comfortable beds! Everything was wonderful!
Leanne Y. Aug 2015
I considered not writing a review because I'd like to keep Tideaway a secret so that I can stay there whenever I'd like! It's comfortable, secluded and the views can't be beat! We enjoyed our very short two-day stay and look forward to coming back and further exploring near-by Mendocino.
Manager response:
Thank you so much for sharing your secret!
Leslie E. Jul 2015
Our kids loved exploring and sleeping with the windows open. The view was incredible and my husband loves searching for whales through the telescope.
David G. Jun 2015
The Tideaway is a wonderful beach home where you can relax and enjoy amazing No. Cal sights and sounds. I don't think the photos on VRBO do it justice. When we entered everyone in our family let out a squeal of delight. Every room has a fantastic view of the ocean. There are two little private beaches in the backyard with tide pools that provide hours of entertainment. The hike down to them is quite steep so it may not be great for young children. Every room was spacious and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to do all of our cooking at home. We will definitely return someday.
Walt M. May 2015
beautiful house with great view.
Chris M. Feb 2015
We were so very pleased with our stay! We saw dolphins and whales while we were relaxing in the back yard. We didn't have to leave the house, everything we wanted was right there. Waking up in the morning was such a treat, opening your eyes while still laying in bed and having an amazing view of the ocean was incredible. Can't wait to stay again!
Chris & Nicole McHenry
Christie M. Feb 2015
Beautiful and peaceful! Absolutely loved it!!
Ember D. Feb 2015
This place is great! From the spacious rooms and common space, to the hot tub, to the gorgeous surroundings...we were all quite happy to have landed in this spot for our time in Ft. Bragg. I would love to stay here again!
Cheri E. Jan 2015
My husband and I took our disabled adult son on a quick weekend getaway. My son who is 29 with severe autism loved the kitchen and cooked for us for 2 days. He keeps asking when can we go back! Beautiful and relaxing.
