Seaside home w/ magnificent ocean views, private hot tub, & cozy wood stove!
Settle in for some breathtaking whitewater views at this Cape Cod-style oceanfront Mendocino Coast vacation rental. Watch the gray whales swim by, soak in the hot tub, or relax over a glass of wine. It's the perfect vacation home-away-from-home for up to 10 guests!
Situated on its own cove between the towns of Mendocino and Fort Bragg, this beautiful two-story, three-bedroom home is just a stone's throw away from the ocean, but within proximity of the various dining and outdoor options available in the coastal hamlets.
Enter another world through the beautiful landscaped grounds. The carpeted living room with a view boasts a curved leather couch, leather armchair and ottoman, and a wooden rocking chair. A comfy window seat with dozens of colorful pillows outlines the entire living space. A roaring glass-front wood stove and entertainment system make the living room a perfect place for cozy interludes or entertaining groups. Need a little alone time instead? Grab a book from the built-in bookshelf, and relax on the black leather couch in the intimate family room. And when the mood strikes, take a luxurious soak in your private hot tub.
An ample and well-supplied country kitchen (including a dishwasher) and dining room combination encourage an enthusiastic social atmosphere; there's also a grill on the deck for hosting lively summer barbecues.
The master suite offers southern coastal views through sliding glass doors, which lead to the deck, spa, pond and, yes, outdoor shower! Two upstairs bedrooms have glass sliding doors, which open to reveal a large balcony overlooking the cove. Three bathrooms ensure nobody will be fighting over the shower in the morning. All in all, this home has plenty of space for 10 guests.
A washer and dryer and free WiFi are on hand. The coastal location affords guests views of ospreys carrying fish in their talons or flocks of pelicans cruising in formation. Gray whales often swim by so be on the lookout! The grounds are expansive and lovely with large trees and beautiful flowers in bloom in the spring and summer. You'll find many a spot to relax and read outdoors.
Mendocino and Fort Bragg are both nearby, and offer a wealth of dining and outdoor opportunities. Mendocino has myriad ocean bluffs at which to gaze upon the wonder of the sea. Wineries abound, so take a day to savor the local vino. Mendocino was established in the 1850s and boasts New England-style architecture, from grand Victorians to saltbox cottages. Fort Bragg boasts many historical sites, from the Skunk Train to Noyo Harbor. It's also a great place to shop and dine.
This expansive Northern California Coast rental, complete with sea view and beautiful landscaping, is the perfect escape for a large party.

We enjoyed Sea Cove for our retreat. It had all the amenities we could possibly need. The view is to die for.
Girls weekend. The house was basic and comfy, and just what we needed
Location location location
We went there for 2 nights to spend with with family and friends and this place turned out to be a dream destination for all of us. Given its prime location in Fort Bragg makes it ideal for anyone to spend a relaxing, serene vacation away from the city life and enjoy to the fullest. The owner has really kept in mind the minute details of anyone wanting to spend a wonderful weekend. We actually did not have to go out for a single thing other than the essentials like drinking water and stuff. The house I really well maintained and clean with all amenities. The jacuzzi is very relaxing and beautiful. Lots of open space allowed the kids to hang around and run around in the house and outside the patio. And last but not the least, the viewed from every corner of the house is just breath taking. Overall this was one of the best vacation rentals we have ever stayed this far and would like to come back to this place again and again.
Loved the view and the large amount of space.
Relaxing sunset view while in the Jacuzzi is just one of the good things about this location.
This house was everything I had hoped for and much more! What gorgeous views from literally every room of the house! he house is at the top of a cliff, so you can walk into the backyard and to the edge of the cliff for even more stunning views. My family enjoyed the sunset views all the 3 nights of the stay. The kitchen is updated and fully loaded to the last fork and spoon. I ran into the owners who live in a different unit on the lot and they were very welcoming and pleasant. They were very kind offering to help if we needed any. The Wi-Fi speed was top notch/ blazing fast and I measured it at near 50 mbps, plenty enough to connect my laptop and probably and 5 other phones. In terms of location, this place is just 5 minutes from Safeway, 10 minutes from proper downtown and just 2 minutes from the botanical gardens. I'm already looking forward to returning to Sea Cove.
I took my ladies group to this house and we all loved it! The views are amazing!! The house was very clean and spacious...plenty of room for 7 ladies. The only negative things were that the hot tub could have been cleaner(sand and oil)and there was no brush to clean the BBQ after we used it.
We appreciate the guests feedback. Unfortunately, previous guests took the BBQ brush and the BBQ propane tank with them when they left, we have since purchased a new brush and tank. Local staff has informed the hot tub technician about the sand and body oil and it has been taken care of for future guest satisfaction.
We had a wonderful time We cooked all our meals in the well stocked Kitchen. We saw whales swimming by that was especially excideing for our 6 year old it was warm and cozy in every room in Nov. and it was a Beautiful Sunny day so the Beaches were fun to walk on and fish off of. They enjoyed the Jacuzzi. All and all we had a great time
This was a very good accommodation. The view and location was exceptional. Slow or non existent Wifi and practically no Mobile reception made keeping in touch a challenge, but everything else was as expected or better. Our group of 6 adults and four kids had everything we needed to enjoy a three day weekend.
This is a beautiful vacation house with a wide view of the cliffs and sea. Everything you would need for a great vacation was available. The location was quiet and peaceful. It is somewhat remote but for those seeking this type of vacation as we were, it is perfect.
the stay was very wonderful. we enjoyed the beach view and the home had all the needed amenities.
Situated out on a bluff overlooking the ocean. Wonderful views while listening to the waves crashing. House needs updating but is tolerable.
Beautiful location with stunning views and deer running through backyards made for spectacular time. Maintenance crews and upkeep took some of the fun out
Great stay - great house - great views - great for old kids. thank you!
No two ways of saying it, this house is tired. It is surface clean at all the levels that you'll touch inside (the only reason the house does not get one star). Overall this house was not worth the inflated pricing of a beach rental house. All doors are sticky and hard to open. Black mold on the bath ceiling. A bar with a broken faucet, laminate peeling off in the kitchen, a dishwasher that is rusting away. If all you care about is an ocean view and you can overlook the interior of the house you are staying in, then you'll do fine here. Note that there is no shore access from this house. Also the hillside behind the house is unusable, it's a total bog. Your usable rental here is limited to the house and the deck. Vacasa should be ashamed of themselves for listing this place.
We deeply apologize that this guest had to stay in a home that was not in perfect condition. We're excited to report that the owner has scheduled repairs to the home for October-November 2017, addressing all issues listed above. Thank you.
This home is an excellent vacation spot for friends and family! Incredibly beautiful grounds and great location! We all loved it! The hot tub looks out over the ocean!
My family and I had a very relaxing vacation. The views from every room are amazing. We will definitely book this home again. Thank you!
The house does need a major overhaul/upgrades, didn't look any different than it did 18 years ago to all of us, that being said it does have that awesome view and location to anything you may need. Having to pay extra for house cleaning & hot tub usage was a joke, we all had to pitch in and deal with ant problem & clean hot tub/filter before it was able to even get in it.
The home has all new bedding and decorative pillows and blankets. The new carpet will be installed the first week of May, and the new fabric for the window seats will also be installed in May. Thank you!
We needed a couple days to unwind and relax, & we received just that. Even with the rainy days, we loved our bike ride, shopping in Mendocino, and especially just listening to the waves & watching the whales. We will come & stay again. Such a charming place!
Great clean and spacious place. Quiet neighbors and AWESOME view of the ocean. Had an amazing time :)
This house sits right on a Cove of the ocean. W breathtaking views. This house is well-stocked in the kitchen and other amenities. Has pretty much everything you need ex cept your own food and drink. Definitely not small child or disabled friendly. But very comfortable and baking views. some of the beds are extremely uncomfortable.
We've stayed at his home twice over the last decade. The location, coast view, deck, living room, and hot tub are as good as it gets in the Mendo/Ft. Bragg area. Just really lovely first class experience. The rooms upstairs are fine. The bathrooms ok. The kitchen was built with the house (guessing late 60's/early 70's) and is showing its age, maybe more so than other parts of the home. If cooking is important to your stay then this kitchen is not for you. Overall, the home is like a favorite aunt, wonderful in its own way and rewarding for a visit. It's cozy and fun, even as its a little frayed. Enjoy!
Lovely view of ocean and accommodates 10 nicely.
It is an old house but has a great view!!!
Location is amazing with wonderful views. The house is rustic.
We will be back again next month with a group of guys from high school. This is our preferred place to stay and we are very much looking forward to it!!
All I can say is we will be back
We had a nice time and the view is gorgeous. The house is very dated and needs TLC. It has a strange layout. There is a full size bed in the middle of the TV room! But, our 11 year-old didn't mind it. It's an extra "4th" bed, so it was ok. We spent most of our days exploring the surrounding areas like the Russian Gulch trail (to a nice waterfall) and the bluffs around the town of Medicino. The place is definitely stuck in the late 80s, but there's some charm to that. The carpet in the master was just plain dirty, which is unacceptable. There's definitely a moldy smell in the bathroom. Only 1 jet worked in the Jacuzzi so no one wanted to use it... Kind of a waste. The DVD player is broken... Won't eject. The kids listened to the ABBA DVD stuck inside several times. All in all, the issues weren't terrible. The view and the beautiful cove make up for the aesthetic problems.
It’s great to hear that you enjoyed the view and the nearby cove at the home. Thank you for all of your feedback about the home. With the information you provided, our local operations manager was able to look into the things you mentioned in your review. The DVD player was replaced 8/20/2016. The carpet has been cleaned. Both the carpet and the jacuzzi tub are planned to be replaced. Keep checking back, as we will update when those replacements have been completed. We hope you stay with Vacasa again the next time you plan your next vacation!
Great house for a large group and for a family, the view is wonderful.
We are fortunate to be from Northern California so that our grand children and children were able to visit us at this location, we had a rotation schedule set up and had a great time. Plenty of room and the kitchen was well stocked to cook a lot of family meals in. Every window has a great view and we even saw a couple of whales. We had a great time and certainly hope to return next year.
Quaint house in awesome location.
Only problem we had was deciding which room to watch view from. Had the time of our lives and basically never left the house
Awesome view.. Splendid experience..
This home has a marvelous view and location. Beach access during the summer would be very difficult with small children, but the view really is stunning. If I could be guaranteed that the house was clean upon arrival I would actually consider this rental again in the future.

Absolutely loved the location, Perfect views of the ocean from every Room in the house. Large enough sun room to have fun with all house members. Loved the settings in the house. Bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen fully equipped. Less channel options in TV. But anyways we didn't want to spend time with TV .. ;) Will definitely return to the property in future .. :)
The views from this house are fantastic! Easily the best thing about our family holiday vacation. The house can accommodate a lot of people with no lack of privacy.
We decided in November to try a trip to Fort Bragg with out grown children and their families. This house was expensive but clearly the reason it still had openings was the condition. It is rundown, neglected and none too clean.
Nice features are the views from two of the showers, a sliding door to the deck from one which would be great in the summer, an outdoor shower by the hot tub, plenty of seating and enough heat for the very cold nights we had.
I wouldn't stay there again although the white water view is almost worth it.
Thanks for sharing your review. We certainly appreciate the feedback as it does outline some room for improvement. We always love to hear from our guests because it allows up to implement improvements that could lead to even more enjoyable stays in the future. Our property manager has been alerted about the items you brought up and they will work diligently to maximize the potential of this home.
If you stressed out of your city life, need a short break, and love ocean, then Sea cove is the place to stay. Beautiful cottage setting house, plenty of rooms and bathrooms to use, and sleeping with ocean sound is a lullaby. Waking up with the view of the ocean, is amazing. This place is fantastic. The only suggestion is the carpet in the master bedroom, it looks old and dirty, it would be perfect if it gets replace. Other than that is excellent, and will definitely come again.
My family and I really enjoyed staying here, we loved sleeping with windows open and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. Relaxing and peaceful.
The calling of the osprey and their newly fledged offspring was the finale to our stay. The ocean varied between crashing waves and seeming like a lake. The wildlife made it seem like we were in a National Geographic special. Lots of pictures were taken from the expansive decks. We will definitely recommend and hope to return soon.
The house is ample in size for small groups. With only 6 bedrooms if this house were booked to capacity then at least 4 persons are sleeping on the side beds and roll-aways in the living room. All of the linens are dated and need to be replaced. The downstairs carpet is nearing the end of it's usable life and is heavily stained. The fridge is small - we had 5-6 guests and filled it to capacity. There was no mini-fridge in the bar area which would have helped with the low fridge capacity. Most mattresses in the bedrooms were fine, the two twins out in the main downstairs rooms were very firm. The view is stunning on both nice and stormy days and we enjoyed a lot of time just relaxing with the view. The outside space is enjoyable - plenty of deck space. A portable gas grill instead of charcoal would help with outdoor cooking. The next door neighbor (tenant?) while nice enough and approachable does smoke outside which does waft towards the house with the prevailing northwest winds that come with this area of the coast. It's a nice house and an excellent view. But the view can't hold this property alone and it would benefit from some freshening up of some amenities.
Thank you for sharing your review and feedback with us. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay. We would like to point out that this is a 3 bedroom home, not 6.
The view from all rooms of the house was wonderful. The house was had enough beds to accommodate lots of people. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood, the geese on the cliff and the botanical gardens nearby.
We were so happy to find this house that has the ocean view from the deck, as well as every room in the house. One other of our favorites was the frog pond. They serenaded us every evening. Deer made their way through the back yard in the mornings. It is just a perfect place.
We will be returning to this property again. My family and I had a blast, thank you allowing us to stay.
Came here for a girls' getaway weekend and had a wonderful time. There were storms in the area, unfortunately, and no power when we showed up the first night. Power was restored the next morning and we really enjoyed our stay. The property is beautiful and the house is more than comfortable. The location is perfect, right on the ocean, with amazing views. Close to town, whale watching (bad weather prevented this for us), beaches and lighthouses. We'll be returning with our families for another trip sometime soon.
Sea Cove is right on the bluffs overlooking the ocean. The sunroom and kitchen were great family spaces. We saw whales, enjoyed local hikes, and enjoyed a perfect Christmas away from home.
