Enjoy private hot tub & spectacular ocean views, 1 dog OK!
Looking for the perfect family reunion spot? Look no further than Captain Phil's gorgeous five-bedroom Albion vacation rental offering ocean views, a gourmet kitchen, fireplace, and private hot tub! One dog is also allowed.
The vacation home is located just south of the village of Mendocino in a quaint coastal community. Nestled amongst the California Redwood Forest and the Little Salmon Creek, the home is the ideal spot to set back the clock and regain some peace and solitude. A five-minute drive will offer beautiful views of Albion River Bridge, a WWII era wooden trestle bridge, shopping, and oysters and artisan cheese plates at the Ledford House.
This charming getaway has exposed wood ceilings, ornate driftwood carvings, and soft leather touches. The large social areas, including the living room, kitchen, and dining room are upstairs in this second-story vacation home. Feel instantly at ease in the open-concept living room, with its soft leather reclining loveseats and sofa. The loveseats are huddled around a unique carved wood coffee table base with a glasstop, and frame the large rock fireplace and flatscreen smart TV.
You and guests will gaze into the fire or absorb the nearly panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the expansive patio. High-speed free WiFi makes it easy to keep up with friends and family back home.
Just off the living room is an exquisite kitchen with custom wood cabinets, granite countertops, and stainless-steel appliances including a built-in microwave, oven, gas range grill top stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, toaster, coffeemaker, double sink, and plenty of cutting boards and kitchen accessories to serve large meals. An expansive granite kitchen island will allow you to prep lunches for your ocean adventures. Just off the kitchen is a formal dining room with a wood table for eight. At the heart of the table is a twisted carved wood centerpiece.
Three sliding glass doors off the main living area lead to the expansive patio, complete with a mermaid figurehead at the eve of the roof. Slather up with sunscreen and lounge in the Adirondack chairs on the deck which overlooks the grassy knoll and rolling waves. When the mood is right, slip into your bathing suit for a romantic dip in the private patio hot tub overlooking the sea!
At night, this spacious home offers five bedrooms and thick mattress pads, four full bathrooms and comfortably sleeps 10 people - as well as one dog (30 lbs or under), for a small nightly fee. Two bedrooms are upstairs, one with a king, an en suite with a soaking tub, and a walk-in closet, and the one with a queen-sized bed. Downstairs is three additional guest rooms with queen-sized beds, and a regal game room with an ornate claw-foot pool table with red felt. Don't forget to pack your gadgets!
Drive just 10 minutes for geocaching, fishing, and boating to where locals call “the redwood tunnel to the sea” at Navarro River Redwoods State Park. Make the 15-minute drive to Mendocino where you can go whale watching, board a charter fishing boat, browse book shops and galleries, or enjoy a pulled pork sandwich and local brew at Patterson's Pub.
No matter how you spend your time - kayaking the sea, butter dipping Dungeness crab in a local restaurant, or soaking in the hot tub, this gorgeous Northern California Coast vacation rental is the perfect spot for you and your family to relax with all the comforts of home and appreciate your time together in beautiful Albion.
*This house is surrounded by other homes and all are on private property. Please stay on the immediate rental property while you are there. We know it can be tempting to walk closer to the ocean from the home but the road you see is actually a private driveway and the neighbors will take action if you do so. There is a wonderful beach three miles south on the main highway, across the Navarro Bridge and then a direct right. There is no beach access at this home.

We rented Captain Phil’s to celebrate a special birthday with our family and the home could not have been more perfect for us!! Beautifully appointed, spacious and views from every window. We were able to spend quality time together in a gorgeous location We are looking forward to our next family get away at Captain Phil’s!!
We had a great family reunion over New Year's weekend with an ocean view of the Mendocino Coast. We enjoyed beachcombing, hot tubbing, cycling Hwy 1, running, cooking fabulous meals in the spacious kitchen, sleeping in VERY comfy beds, and playing pool! Great place for a large family!
Awesome place and it’s so spacious. It’s a great place for a mini getaway.
It was open, light, bright, clean with a lovely ocean view. Sunsets and stars. Well equipped and comfortable!
Went to this wonderful, beautiful house with nine of my Sorority Sisters, plenty of room to sleep, wonderful beds and bedding, full stocked large kitchen, wonderfull large bathrooms, lots of towels, great Hottub, Pooltable. Clean well stocked house, look forward to returning.

The space is lovely and large and bright. It is well outfitted with most everything one could want in the kitchen. THe views are lovely, and the beds were very comfortable. Everythign was clean and ready for our visit.
Great house, great value. Perfect for a family reunion or wedding in Albion!
We loved our time at this home. Hot tub was a hit.
OK so if you are looking for peace quiet solitude gorgeous nature view amazing hiking trails a beautiful home with all the amenities this is absolutely place for you!
Great place will stay agian
Awesome view of ocean. Loved the house and arrangements.
Everything worked well and the place was very beautiful! Would definitely do it again, hopefully soon. The customer service was smooth and great!
There is no cell phone signal available and house phone can only make local call. Suggest to enable WiFi signal on usage as needed base, like $10 per day. Feel like disconnect with outside world without internet access.
Nice, spacious home with gorgeous view. Comfortable beds and linens. However, no reading lights in any of the rooms, including the family room. No internet or wi-fi means you and your kids will spend some old fashioned quality time together. The pool table and hot tub with ocean view are nice amenities. However the home could use a woman's touch to make it feel warm and inviting. Some new kitchen cookware and dishes would really make a difference. The bbq and washing machine were out of order during our stay.
We sincerely apologize for the inconveniences experienced due to the washing machine and BBQ being out of order. We are working very hard to either repair or replace both items. We will suggest to the owner that they provide reading lamps. Thank you!
Captain Phil's was great! It was a great location with a great view. However, unfortunately you can not walk to the beach or ocean which would have been nice. But everything was in very close driving distance. The house itself is beautiful, spacious, and very clean. Loved the hot tub, fireplace, and big kitchen, great for entertaining. I would definitely recommend and would stay here again!
Our party of seven had a wonderful, relaxing stay and this was a great place to convene after our days of adventure. Things to know: the kitchen has basics. It would be hard to do a lot of cooking; The view is wonderful, including deer that wander through. However, this property is land locked so not feasible to go for walks. If walks and cooking are not your thing, this place is a great find. Some wonderful restaurants in the area.Write your review here
The home is very spacious and the features just as described on the website. Quite neighborhood and perfect place to spend vacation with family and friends.
Love that my blended family of 10 had a room to their selves! Great property! We will be back!
Very comfy home. Perfect for gathering and enjoying the area. Limited ocean view. You can see the waves but no beach etc.
Nice home, beautiful views, nice hot tub, plenty of room for a large group. Love the recliners!
Do coastal access and no phone, no cell service and no internet service.
Great stay! We loved the location,! There seemed to be some ants in living room.
This house had a great layout for several couples and a fantastic view. Not sure if I would bring kids. No where to walk from the house, no beach or bluff access.
This property was just the perfect size for our family and offered amazing views of the ocean. Thank you so much for the weekend getaway.
This house and location was great for the group of us who needed to getaway. The weather was very nasty this weekend. And Wind and rain had things blowing all around us. So could not use the spa on the deck. The kitchen could use a few more utensils for preparing meals little easier. And has no storage for left overs. But these are little things for a Great big lovely house and views. Even has a pool table downstairs for something to do, while in the house.
Fantastic location and house! Big enough for two families and the bonus was you can bring your pet!
Great house. Felt like a safe and peaceful home base for dining together, and staging adventures up and down the coast. Comfy beds, lots of bathrooms and a very hot tub on the deck. Sunny living room. Large dining room table. Just right for us.
One star deleted from "location" ---- Neighbors did NOT take kindly to some of our mellow/quiet group walking (via shared driveway?) to the nearby bluffs to catch a closer view of the crashing waves and a whiff of the ocean breeze... too bad there's not an agreed-upon open access path/etc. So be tactful/careful if you decide to venture closer :-)
There is no where to walk around the house. Neighbors have many signs siting private property and no trespassing. If you want to leave the house you need to get right in your car and drive somewhere else. The trash and recycling are simple placed in the garage where there are bins labeled. Don't pay attention to the sign in the kitche that was take recycling with you. Nice house if you are fine with staying put for a few days. And in this case I hope the update the entertainment for you.
House size for the 7 of us was awesome. Liked being able to sit together in the living area & at the dining table and work together in the kitchen. View is great but we could have used 2 more deck chairs. Thank you for sharing your house.
Can't wait to rent it again
There really is no beach access, walking paths, or cliff views because the property is inland from the neighbors and they have strict no trespassing signs. So even though the ocean is right there, one needs to drive a distance to access cliff or shoreline views. There are some beautiful public areas within 20 to 30 minutes' drive north or south of the home.
Large house and property but besides the fun in the house, there really isn't anything you can do unless you go out with your car. Th e property is surrounded by private homes and private property signs so you can't really do any walking or anything adventurous.
Had a nice stay, and the location was perfect for access to boat launch and close enough to Mendocino for shopping
Our family had a wonderful vacation kicking off our summer. The house worked perfectly for our trip and we found that it had everything we needed. We would stay at Captain Phil's again in a heartbeat and hope it's still available for our next trip!
Beautiful home, fairly close to Anderson Valley wineries and Mendicino
Beautiful vacation home in the sea front to spend your time with family and friends.
The view and overall structure of the house was great. We loved the open floor plan with lots of light and windows to enjoy the view. The hot tub was great. We had an issue with the overall cleanliness (odor, dust, dirty dishes put away in the cabinet, master bedroom sheets not clean). Also, there was not enough towels and the ones they supplied were stained and in bad shape. All of that aside, our family enjoyed our time and stay.
We are very sorry to see that housekeeping was not up to par and will be sure to work with our team on reaching our cleanliness standards.
Great central living space upstairs with beautiful Pacific views, easy parking and comfortable beds. Note that there is no beach or cliff access because that is someone else's property; go to parks for that experience. Hot tub is hot with a great view of the ocean, but not completely private from view of other houses. Pool table is a plus!!
No wifi for me is a major bummer! For my work that was a huge deal!
I would have never stayed here if I had know there was no wifi! the phone was not functioning. So without cell phone reception. We had no way to communicate with work or family without driving into town...
I have rented a lot of places. It was my bad for assuming there would be wifi.... i should have looked at the rental agreement..
We apologize that the lack of WiFi caught you off-guard and hope it allowed you the opportunity to disconnect and enjoy your time on the coast.
Great house for the 10 of us gathering once yearly. Captain Phil's is a roomy beautiful home. We enjoyed the fire place on the rainy weekend we were there.
This house was perfect for a big group of people there is plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen, fireplace and views were so relaxing. Lots of laughter and fun we will definitely be staying again. I can't say enough how much I liked this house the rooms are spacious and the pool table down stairs was such a bonus, kept everyone engaged without the phones. I LOVE that is no WiFi just the views and sounds of the ocean. There is cable which is nice at night for movies. So amazing!
Every November a group of friends gets together for one last weekend of abalone diving before the season ends. We've had some epic weekends but I think this one was the best. The house was perfect. Very clean, the lay out was perfect, had everything we needed, and the views are beyond description. The large upstairs was perfect for a large group dinner and it never felt cramped. We had a wonderful experience and will be back next year for sure.
We had a lovely time at Captain Phil's. Our one regret was not bringing captain hats to wear for our pictures! Thanks again!!
We had a pleasant relaxing stay. Everything seemed clean and comfortable. CD, DVD, surround sound needs replacement/ upgrade and WiFi would be nice but not necessary. We certainly would consider coming back.
Lovely home and location. Management should oversee it better. Considering the cool and foggy weather there we think it crucial that the TV in the main living area work. We were able to work through it...there are printed info and warnings as to how to operate it, but apparently the prior visitors had messed it up. So a simpler fool (kid) proof approach would be helpful.
Away from city noise, true nature's beauty can be observed here. At night time you can clearly see milky-way and stars. At day time, you can soak yourself to sandy beaches.
We loved the location! Easy drive to Ft. Bragg and Mendocino. Several places along the way to hit the beach. The house was beautiful, clean and easy to find. The bbq was dirty, but otherwise we loved it! Peaceful, quiet, great ocean view! The Ledford House and The Albion River Inn are great dinner options. We would love to go there again!
Great family room and kitchen!!
Loved the space. Thank you for a great weekend.
Beautiful views and a great location. If you want a nice newer home with million dollar views, this is the place!
