Two-Level Oceanfront Home w/ Private Hot Tub, High-Speed WiFi, and Ocean Views

*Please Note: Due to the nature of the home, we are unable to accommodate children under 12 years old.

With a private hot tub and a spacious, ocean-facing deck, this Fort Bragg vacation rental is a unique Mendocino County getaway with an historic architectural style. You'll enjoy a classic design and modern amenities like WiFi, Netflix streaming, and two TVs, so your visit here can be as relaxing as you'd like. Stay near the house, lounging by the ocean, or head into town for galleries, restaurants, and one-of-a-kind coastal shops.

Perched on top of a bluff, Ocean Breeze has two levels that include a comfortable living room on the main floor surrounded by ocean view windows. Here, you'll have a TV with a number of entertainment amenities, as well as plenty of seating in front of the fireplace with faux electric fire for ambience. There's also a table for four or more for board games and puzzles. A formal dining room provides seating for eight, plus there's an additional dining table at one end of the galley kitchen. You can play chef in this bright, well-equipped space! Besides the oceanfront deck, there's also the stone trail down to the private hot tub for a relaxing evening soak. It's just the thing for sore muscles after a day of hiking or biking along the coastal headlands.

From here, it's a short drive to the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens - peruse outdoor gardens and exhibits dedicated to the Northern California Coast. Flora is seasonal and includes everything from rhododendrons in the spring to camellias in the winter. If you continue north a couple more miles, you can spend the day in picturesque Fort Bragg. Visit galleries, take a ride on the renowned Skunk Train, or head to the Sea Glass Museum. There are also a number of restaurants to choose from after you've worked up an appetite, and if you head a bit farther north, you can stop at Pacific Star Winery along Highway 1.

If you feel like heading south from Ocean Breeze, the charming village of Mendocino is a short drive away. Here, you will also find a number of unique shops and galleries, as well as Patterson's Pub - the perfect place to sit back with beer and people watch. This Northern California vacation rental is centrally located between the Mendocino Village and Fort Bragg and offers amazing ocean views, a wonderful wraparound deck, and deluxe amenities like a private hot tub and WiFi. It's perfect for a family getaway or group traveling together; you may find that you never want to leave!

Paul L. Jan 2023
Fantastic location, and wonderful house - a bit idiosyncratic, but that's part of the charm. The only thing we'd add is a dishwasher.....
Manager response:
Hi Paul, thank you for taking the time to share your valuable feedback, we are glad to hear you enjoyed the location of our condo. We take guest feedback seriously, and we have passed along your comments about some upgrades to the home regarding the dishwasher to our team, who will work with the homeowner to make any updates and continually enhance the home. Thank you again for this valuable information, as we always welcome the opportunity to improve. We hope to host you for another truly carefree and great vacation in the future.
Jenn A. Dec 2022
This is by far my favorite VRBO I've stayed in! It's perfect for two couples or two people that appreciate sleeping in different wings with complete privacy. The views are unmatched. You're close enough to the neighbors that you don't feel TOO isolated (we're city folk so that was a concern), but still provides a ton of privacy. The kitchen is EXTREMELY well-stocked. There wasn't one thing that they didnt have that we needed. Lots of extra blankets and pillows. Seriously, if you're thinking about going, pull the trigger on this one. I can't say enough about it.
Elizabeth L. Nov 2022
Never want to leave. Booked second stay before we left. View can’t be beat.
Monica C. Oct 2022
Love the views from this house. However it is a quirky floorplan that kept us up and down stairs often. Would not recommend for anyone with mobility issues. Kitchen is small, but we'll equipped, except no dishwasher.
Otherwise beautiful and very private! We got tons of exercise navigating the floorplan. Also has a very tight spiral staircase on one end.
PJ C. Sep 2022
Watched whales from the deck while sipping beverages. Spent an afternoon touring local restaurants trying to find the best clam chowder (spoiler: It is Mendo Cafe with N Coast Brewing a close second). A great relaxing stay.
Cory G. Aug 2022
The view, the view, the view. Wow. Nothing like it. Secluded cliff top home relaxes you like no other.
Dyanne B. Jul 2022
My family loved this home. Yes it corky but it gave us plenty of room. The view are amazing & peaceful. We are going to make this our yearly trip😊
Vrisa C. Jun 2022
Our yearly retreat! We can’t get enough of this beautiful house! We absolutely love it there and we pretend that it is our forever home 😊 The amenities suit us perfectly. The scenery is incredible. Listening to the ocean from every angle of the house is rewarding. A piece of heaven on earth! See you in September hopefully! And 2023 🤞🏻🤞🏻
Piper L. Apr 2022
Beautiful place lots of room to spread out, love the ocean views and places to walk on the bluffs, would come again.
Jennifer W. Mar 2022
My family has been coming to this house sunce 2002. We have always loved the experience this house provides. It's quirky and that is what makes it so special. The love and care that went into building not a house but a home is apparent. That being said, it's time for a new couch in the main living room. 20 years of vacationers have taken any structure out of the current one and it is really not comfortable any longer, hence my 4 stars. The common response of "The homeowner is working to replace furniture " is a really tired one and I'd like to encourage Vacasa to stop saying it. It's been noted by several other guests as well.
Deanise H. Mar 2022
Beautiful, fun quirky house with tons of space and million dollar views! The house has everything you need to escape including the hot tub overlooking the coast. My family enjoyed it immensely and we will be back!
Barry P. Dec 2021
Great views. Interesting layout with lots of nooks for reading or games.
Katerina S. Nov 2021
The location and views from this house are spectacular. Unfortunately living in it is extremely uncomfortable. Firstly, the heating system is really outdated. It's loud and outdated. Every room has its own micro climate with some rooms freezing cold and others overheated, even though all thermostats are set at the same temperature. The beds are extremely uncomfortable. I am not sure if the mattresses are old or cheap or a combination of the two. Between terrible beds and constant clicking noises coming from the thermostat, I could barely sleep. It was a first time that I couldn't wait to get out of the vacation property. The lack of the a dishwasher wasn't a big deal for us since we mostly ate out. But if I cooked, cleaning up would've been a pain and not something you want to do on a vacation. On a bright note, we had an amazing dinner at Albion River Inn. Highly recommend the place for both food and the ambiance!
Manager response:
Katerina, we deeply regret the issues and inconveniences encountered during your stay! Our local team is available to assist if you experience any unpleasantries and possible relocation during your visit. We would have been happy to address these issues had we been aware. We strive to create a relaxing and comfortable stay, not cause frustration. Our 24/7 live guest service number is available for any needs during your visit. Again, we are very sorry and will follow up with our property manager to ensure repairs and necessary updates commence. We hope to gain an additional opportunity to produce a more gratifying and pleasurable vacation stay!
Irena B. Nov 2021
4 stars only for few bugs and bad smell in the carpet
Kenneth N. Oct 2021
Awesome views, soothing waves crashing, the smell of salty ocean air, some fresh rain, lots of sunshine. A fine place to enjoy nature with loved ones.
Vrisa C. Jun 2021
Always love our stay there the Fort Bragg’s Ocean Breeze Home. We truly can’t get enough of the beauty and the serenity that we feel when we are there. The accommodations are perfect & the house is set up just right. The views are breathtaking. Getting to watch the sunset every night from the wraparound deck is just stunning. It is our yearly family trip and we look forward to it with great anticipation. Everyone leaves a little piece of their heart there. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with all of us so that we can create beautiful memories❤️
Sharon V. May 2021
The location, location, location. Even when it was to chilly and windy to sit outside we enjoyed watching the wave action from the great room. If you love to cook the kitchen is well equipped for a small or large gathering. The beds are very comfortable and we are fairly fussy sleepers. One of the few houses we have rented over the years that we would go back to in a heart beat.
Robin R. Apr 2021
This is my 3rd girls retreat to this house. Such a beautiful home. We always enjoy our time. Cooking dinner, enjoying the view. We will definitely be back again!
James S. Mar 2021
The ocean view is unreal off the balcony and from the living room. Very private and serene. The kitchen has everything you’ll need. There’s a private garage with an automatic garage door opener. Close to town and close to Mendocino and many state parks to choose from. This is our 7th time at Ocean Breeze.
Sue E. Nov 2020
What a home! What a location! Quirky Cool inside and out! It was lovely from the front deck to the back deck to the hot tub sanctuary to the cliffs with waves breaking all around. We loved it and plan to come back!
Dale W. Nov 2020
Fantastic views, well stocked kitchen, very clean accommodations. A one of the kind property.
David R. Nov 2020
The views are phenomenal. The whales have a blow show every day.
Manager response:
Hi David! Thank you for staying with us. We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed the home and the location. We hope to host you again!
Vrisa C. Sep 2020
This is the fourth time we have stayed at Ocean Breeze so, with that said, we love the home! It suits our needs well. We feel as if we are completely disconnected from the world on a beautiful beach island! The accommodations are perfect. We love the openness of the home. Stunning views with such a serene feel. Thank you!!
Barri B. Sep 2020
There isn't really anything we DIDN'T love about this house or our stay except the lack of cell service (but we were able to use WiFi calling to catch and make most of our calls, so as long as you're within WiFi range and have that feature on your phone, you should be fine). The kitchen is small but well-equipped, and the grounds and views therefrom are as good as any we've experienced in our previous travels throughout the world. Proximity to fresh abalone, sea urchin and other local delicacies makes this a very tasty stay as well (the local restaurants we tried were all great). As long as you're looking for a getaway that feels a bit like it's away from bustling civilization, you've found it.
Tom N. Aug 2020
After five long months of sheltering in place, our stay at Ocean Breeze was amazing. It was relaxing and comfortable and the views of the ocean were spectacular, especially the sunsets from the back porch. We’ll be back for sure.
John M. Mar 2020
As with past trips, this trip provided the highest measures of serene views from nearly all rooms in the home, along with an extremely high degree of privacy.
James S. Mar 2020
This home and view is what keeps us coming back. This last visit might be our fifth time staying at Ocean Breeze. Besides the beautiful view and spacious home, it’s private! It’s a private paradise. You can see how much love was put into this home. Thank you Vacasa!
Julie M. Feb 2020
Beautiful views from every room in the house.
Julia S. Dec 2019
It was all about the view. No matter where you were, both inside and out, there was a wonderful view of the ocean. From almost every room there was access to the deck. The sunsets were beautiful.. Even though it rained most of the time we were there it didn't matter. The house had plenty of space for all 8 of us to spread out or gather as a large group. We would go back in a heartbeat.
Phillip F. Dec 2019
Unmatched beauty surrounds this home. Very private setting with trails on the cliffs to be explored. Perfect location to restaurants, shopping and excursions.
Jonathan T. Dec 2019
Great location with epic views from all sides of the house. Lots of room through out the house. You can also walk to Pine beach. We loved our stay. Only knock is master bedroom takes a while to warm up and doesn’t have WiFi or TV. Also the house doesn’t have great cell reception. But highly recommend this place.
Karen W. Nov 2019
This house is perfectly located between Fort Bragg and Mendocino. The views are amazing! We stayed for 4 nights and were able to see different ocean conditions from calm and deep blue to angry gray waves that pounded the bluff below us. it was fantastic.
We ate most of our meals at home in the very well-equipped kitchen, put a jigsaw puzzle together, and just relaxed in the living room watching the sea.
We would return in a heartbeat!!
Jennifer N. Nov 2019
The location was fabulous during the day but with a pg&e outage several days during our stay, we were without power and water but made the best of it glamping. The rental management was supportive and helpful and we look forward to returning when all the lights are back on!
Mike T. Oct 2019
The views from the home and property are awesome from every vantage point. The house had everything we needed. The process through Vacasa start to finish was very simple. We will definitely be back.
Sergio R. Sep 2019
The location of the house is perfect. The views were amazing. The house is fully stocked with everything needed for your relaxing weekend. The only negative thing the pull out beds were not too comfortable, especially the one in the big room. The blow up mattress should not count as accommodation for two people. This should be advertised as a house for 6 people not ten.
Manager response:
Hello Sergio, Thank you for your review. The listing reflects the maximum occupancy of eight guests but that the home sleeps six comfortably. We do hope to host you again in the future.
Laura J. Aug 2019
We stayed here for a special family birthday trip, 6 adults and one teen, one dog for 2 nights. We were all blown away by the beautiful ocean views all around the house, and the spacious rooms and grounds. We sighted whales off the deck several times, and loved watching the mesmerizing waves in the coves. Bring your binoculars, there are interesting birds here as well as whales!
Things to be aware of if considering this house is that there are only two bedrooms: one bedroom and one small bathroom upstairs, plus the master bedroom and bath downstairs. There is lots of space for air beds, but the sofa beds were not very comfortable. There are two pull out sofa beds, one in the big living room, and one in the family room adjacent to the kitchen. It was OK because we we’re all family, but others may want more privacy than the layout of this house allows. Master bedroom was very comfortable with a big bed. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking gear, but small, and there is not a dishwasher. Another thing to be aware of is that the main living space is up a flight of stairs, there is one wooden stair and a carpeted spiral staircase in the living room. Our old dog couldn’t do the wooden stairs (too slippery and tall), but managed on the spiral carpeted one. The grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed walking on the bluffs trail. The location is great if you want to visit the many attractions from Ft. Bragg to Little River, don’t miss the botanical gardens nearby! The lock is tricky and maps apps may get you lost, so read the instructions carefully and bring a printed copy, don’t rely on cell service. if you choose this unique property you’re sure to have a memorable time!
Arushi G. Aug 2019
This house has a spectacular location. It was very special. It has an old world charm. I would love to come back again.
Only other feedback would be to clean the hot tub better- it had sand in it.
Kevin M. Aug 2019
Location, Location, Location. View, View, View. Watched whales from the deck while eating fresh oysters and crab. Watched the sunset every night!
Norma E. Aug 2019
Loved the location, endless coastal views and everything readily available to temporarily live there. Wish master suite had WiFi and TV. At the same time, having only a radio there made for a romantic evening. ;-)

New sofa sleeper and/or mattresses are needed to accommodate 8. 3 stars are the best I can give due to this.

Nevertheless, we WILL return.

Manager response:
Thank you for bringing this to our attention! We are in the process of replacing and updating the sofa beds and mattresses. We hope to host you again!
Valerie A M. Jul 2019
Amazing views, comfortable and interesting interior, good hot tub.
Kathy H. Jun 2019
This house was so nice, bright and full of charm. Very spacious and lots of sunlight. It is very clean and welcoming. So wonderful to walk out on the deck and see the ocean and listen to the tides. We will definitely book another reservation here, it is going to be our main stay the next time we vacation!!!
Keith S. Jun 2019
Our days at the ocean breeze home were fantastic. Great beach and the deck was great for breakfast lunch and dinner...
Brian K. Jun 2019
Absolutely phenomenal home. Ocean front property nestled on a bluff overlooking the ocean. Loved the wrap around balcony to sit outside and enjoy the waves and stunning views to the north. Without question I’ll be back
Melissa R. Jun 2019
Words can't describe how beautiful the location was. Sitting in the hot tub and listening to the sounds of the ocean was so relaxing. We saw a seal on the beach next the house one morning and there was an area within walking distance with some really neat tide pools. The house itself is a little odd in terms of layout, but worked out fine for four people over a weekend and the sofa bed was surprisingly comfortable and the property was very clean and well maintained.
Chris T. May 2019
I doubt you will find another home with a 300 degree view of the ocean like this one. Spectacular does not describe the setting. We were there during 2 big storms and we got to experience mother nature and the Pacific Ocean at their best. This house was built on a finger of seaside bluff probably 50 years ago. 50 years from now it may not exist if the sea continues to erode the bluff it sits on. The layout of the house is odd. It appears to have been built in sections(3) over time. The kitchen is dysfunctional and claustrophobic and the strange placement of windows and the massive useless stone fireplace make you wonder. The fireplace almost completely obscures the best view to the ocean. But....once you get used to the place you can see everything you want to see. The house has almost no "charm" but it is very comfortable and so what if there are little signs everywhere saying "don't touch this"! I would not stay here again but I really enjoyed the the odd character of the house.
Deepanwita S. May 2019
It was an incredible experience! We loved our stay and could not be happier! Spectacular views! Would love to come back again!
Kelly A M. Feb 2019
What a beautiful spot. We had a marvelous weekend. The house was great! A little quirky but added to the great weekend. The wrap around deck overlooking the ocean was amazing. We could have easily stayed at the house all day and just vegged on the deck. We plan on coming back for sure.
Brenden B. Feb 2019
The house has a beautiful view overlooking the water. The house is very spacious with plenty of room and close to town. I would highly recommend this house for anyone looking to spend time on the Mendocino Coast
jacqueline L w. Feb 2019
I fell in love with the elfin quality of the home, and the incredible views. God provided a weather show----SNOW , hail,50mph winds, rainbow and crystal clear blue sky....all in 5 days. The house provided privacy for 4 couples, the kitchen had great quality equipment(everything you could need) and the spiral staircase staircase was pure fun, and easy to maneuver(I have trouble walking). The grounds surrounding the house were manicured to perfection for fun nooks and secret places. The hot tub conveniently near and wonderful(day or night). As for comments about lack of dishwasher-----four words--septic system and coastal regulations. It also gave one the opportunity to "slow down and smell the flowers" ie. enjoy the view. Ocean view from both sides of the house! All in all, if you've got a soul, this is pure joy. Jackie Warden, 3 kids, twoo longtime
couple/friend and Mocha the dog.
Jennifer G. Dec 2018
We loved the crashing spund of the ocean waves and beautiful view. The house was intriging and cozy while having plenty of room for 5 dults. The only improvements could be to air it out. It does have a heavy dog smell.
Ramona L. Dec 2018
We loved the view of the ocean that was churning with huge storm waves and we saw this from the second story deck that wraps the house and then walked on the cliffs on a path that leads from the house to the wild headlands.
Robert P. Dec 2018
Affordable, beautiful, artistic, cozy, comfy, beautiful yard, peaceful, wonderful view!
Kathy G. Nov 2018
We have rented this home on several occasions and love the location.
Melonie L. Nov 2018
I love waking to the ocean and hearing and smelling it. So calming ! We watched whales spouting in the morning and late afternoon. The sunsets are awesome.
Valerie M. Oct 2018
Amazing views, confortable, spacious home!
Betsy M. Sep 2018
Amazing views from every room, and breath-taking closeness to the ocean define this house.
Jesse F. Sep 2018
Best views . House is configured a little different but the whole house is nice and clean . Ocean is right there . Hot tub was perfect. Worth every penny!!
paul r. Aug 2018
House was big, but a funny design, where the kitchen is far away from the living room. Heat worked great as it was cold in August. But be sure to activate once you get there, as it's not turned on by default. Hot tub was good, although a little much on the chlorine. Spectacular views of the ocean, but you need to rearrange furniture to see. Don't use google to find it, that's only mentioned in link in the email that you get a few days prior to checking in.
Jessica V. Aug 2018
This is our third time at ocean breeze. All I can say is it is always wonderful and continues to be our favorite vacation destination on the coast. We will be returning in the next couple of years.
Kevin M. Aug 2018
The ocean seems to make all your worries fade and the Ocean Breeze property does this very well. Watched whales from the deck every day of our stay!
Teresa C. Jul 2018
We loved the fact that there was a beautiful view of the ocean from EVERY window in the house! Beware - all living space is upstairs so be prepared with a plan for elderly guests in your party,
Stan S. Jul 2018
Wonderful views, pet friendly, entire perimeter deck, quiet, ample living space.
Ricky B. Jul 2018
Everything was excellent- great house, wonderful views.
Clare L. Jul 2018
We love the view. The house is spacious, clean, well-maintained, and tastefully decorated. The heater works well at some chilly nights. The location is conveniently close to restaurants and beaches. The neighborhood is nice.
Rachel C. May 2018
My wife and I loved staying here. The view is absolutely gorgeous and the house is charming.
Michael T. May 2018
Marvelous views, and interesting grounds.
Lai S. Mar 2018
The home was so beautiful and magical. We loved every moment of every second there. We will definitely be back. Spent most of our time sitting on the deck staring off into the ocean. It was very relaxing
Ronda B. Mar 2018
This was my first experience with Vacasa and it was so easy, convenient and efficient. The house was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The views were fabulous and we all enjoyed ourselves, even thru the rains, so much. Loved watching the whales from a cozy room. Everything was provided and so much so that I brought more than I needed. Except for steak knives. . .I could not find any, but it was ok. The Ocean Breeze was a wonderful, charming house and we
hated to leave! We plan to make this a ritual. Ronda & Wayne B.
Dan & Susan Y. Mar 2018
The Location and view's are fantastic and a 10 plus but the the home has alot of deferred maintenance for a multi million dollar home. Also, for you senior's and those that don't like stair's, there a two good size, one being spiral. Do your homework!!!
Manager response:
This is a rustic ocean side home, but it is cared for very well by the owners who will be performing work on the home when they come to visit. Thank you!
James S. Mar 2018
We finally saw the whales off the balcony.!!! The sunsets were amazing! Very peaceful. This is definitely our go-to vacation place. The ocean view did not disappoint.
Miguel R. Feb 2018
Great location and scenery. Older home in need of some upgrades
John M. Feb 2018
This home is perfect for visitors who value ocean views and privacy. The home is located on a small peninsula, with crashing waves on 3 sides of the home. Excellent ocean views can be seen through nearly every window.
Herbert M. Feb 2018
If you enjoy the ocean & your privacy this is the place !!!!!!!!!!
John M. Dec 2017
As always, this place remains a terrific getaway. From the unobstructed ocean views to the comforting layout of the home with a GREAT degree of privacy from the adjacent homes, we are consistently drawn back to this 1 of a kind - superb - sanctuary.
Linda H. Dec 2017
My husband and I have done several VRBO trips in various states including Hawaii and this was definitely one to remember and visit again. The house is very clean and organized with lots of room. The most amazing part of the visit was the view of the ocean from the wrap around deck. I was a little worried about the house because it sounded so good on the website and usually it doesn't look that good in person or some part of it is disappointing. This was not the case here!! Everything was as good or better in person. Despite the fact that we went in December, it wasn't that cold and the windows are so big it wasn't a factor. The managing company was very easy to work with and very professional. We are definitely coming back!!
Loreea G. Nov 2017
We had a girls weekend for my 17 year old daughter and some of her friends . It was a fun relaxing weekend . The house is generously furnished and had everything we needed . The jacuzzi was clean and warm . Would defiantly stay there again .
Keri G. Oct 2017
Good house for a girls weekend if you enjoy views of the ocean and need plenty of common space! Only two bedrooms so you need to be comfortable sleeping in the common areas! You do need to drive to go to a beach so be prepared to not be able to walk to the beach. There are trails you can walk to look at the beach from the cliffs. Overall we enjoyed our stay!
Lisa S. Oct 2017
There’s no reason to leave this view. No matter what the weather, the view is gorgeous. We will return.
Erin M. Oct 2017
A 10
Olivia M. Oct 2017
The view from this property is unbelievable. We hardly left the home. We caught ourselves watching the sunset every night on the patio and listening to the waves crash as we fell asleep at nigh. I highly recommend this property.
Melonie L. Oct 2017
We celebrated our 30th anniversary here with our kids and grand pups. Driving up I knew I was going to live the property. We had trouble finding the main door for some reason. Then felt silly when we finally found it. One of the few things that was a little bit of an issue was the moldy smell first thing when you walk in. It is pretty strong. And the air fresheners don't cover it. I also really hate air fresheners. I don't know if there is anything that can be done about it. But I got used to it and we kept the patio doors open. The house is dated so if you like new and modern it is not for you. Personally I thought it added to the charm and comfort for our family. It is well stalked with all the things you need to cook. Everything was clean except maybe some of the pots and pans that previous guests did not clean well. The property has amazing views. There was space for everyone to do there own thing and for all of us to be together also. We will definitely go back
Herbert M. Oct 2017
We have stay in many homes on the north coast. this is the the BEST!!!!!
Donna P. Sep 2017
We had a great time. The house and the views were fantastic! We all want to come back soon.
Rebecca F. Sep 2017
This home is the best place to relax and enjoy the view of the ocean, sunrise and sunsets. Very roomy and comfortable. We had four adults and two dogs. All were very happy to wake up every morning to see the views. The kitchen has all cooking tools necessary, one of the best supplied homes we have stayed in. One person even completed a puzzle, we loved staying here. Thank you to Vacasa and the owners for opening this home, to share with others.
Robert L. Sep 2017
Beautiful view right on the ocean
Ed H. Aug 2017
This property compares to none for the views. The deck outside of the kitchen was spectacular and comfortable with Adirondack chairs. We saw whales and the most beautiful sunset. It's unique in it's layout, and I agree with other reviews, that having two living areas is a bit of wasted space...maybe a pool table in the "green" room? That would have been a lot of fun! The hot tub outside offer great relaxation after shopping downtown in all the cute shops. Dining in Ft. Bragg has PLENTY to choose from! Overall, I would definitely come back to this property.
Kevin & Leigh M. Aug 2017
The ocean and the earth will speak at this location if you listen long enough.
Pamela C. Jul 2017
The house was situated on a bluff right on top of the ocean with little coves on the left and right. It is at the end of the road and is quite private. The layout was a little odd but the living room had a nice view of the ocean and there were decks going all the way around with lounge chairs to watch the waves. It was very quiet inside and we kept some of the doors ajar to listen to the crashing waves while reading or resting. We loved walking along the bluffs seeing all the wildflowers blooming, watching the sea and the seabirds, deer grazing nearby and walking down to tide pools and an empty beach where our dog could run and we could relax. Mendocino town and restaurants were only 8 minutes away and Fort Bragg was just 7 minutes away. The only issues we had were that there was no dishwasher and the fireplaces didn't work in the living room and master bedroom which was annoying but the fireplace in the small sitting room did work on gas.

Our stay was excellent - the house and location were beautiful! We are already planning our next vacation!!

This home is a sanctuary for anyone who enjoys unrivaled views of the pacific - with a high degree of privacy. Each trip ends with a preference to extend the reservation.
Lee P. Apr 2017
the views and private location of this home are over the top.

With that said, the house is in desperate need of updating. Grandma's furniture and decor detract from the enjoyment. The cushions on couches and chairs sag and are very uncomfortable. The bed upstairs made our backs ache all day the next day. Kitchen needs to be remodeled - still looks like it is right out of the 80's and if you are shorter than 5'6" - you won't be able to work at the counters without a stool as they are 3 inches higher than normal. No dishwasher - Definitely have to be able to climb stairs as one of the two bedrooms is only accessible by a spiral staircase and the main floor is up a flight of stairs too. So two bedrooms and three living rooms sort of make this home dysfunctional.

but all and all - we enjoyed our stay. the price does not reflect the condition of the house.
Manager response:
We value the feedback we receive from our guests and appreciate these comments. The fact that the home does not have a dishwasher is noted in the property description. There are many interior photos of the home plus a virtual walk-through that we hope guests will view to determine if the property will meet their needs and expectations. We are glad this guest enjoyed their stay and hope to see them return to the Mendocino Coast.

We were lucky enough to stay here again. We were here last year and knew we'd be back. Such a stunning property with over the top views! Again, we hardly left the house because we couldn't imagine a better view. It's very private and quiet. I highly recommend staying at Ocean Breeze.
Herbert M. Feb 2017
great views & location!!
Holly L. Jan 2017
We had a wonderful time. The location is close to town and shopping is great. We were able to see whales from the house. We will be coming back.
Clare L. Dec 2016
It is a well maintained and secluded house. The view is superb.
Ramona L. Dec 2016
A truly magical location to be perched on the edge of the contienent.i will never get tired of the ever changing view no matter what the weather.
Richard S. Nov 2016
Our few days at Ocean Breeze were wonderfully relaxing. Rain on the first day brought drama to the shore, and blue, sunny skies for the remainder of the visit let us wander in solitude over the bluffs. The hot tub was perfect. We thought we'd be eating in restaurants, but ended up buying groceries and cooking all our breakfasts and dinners, staring out at stunning views as we cooked and ate. Delightful.
Brian J. Oct 2016
The washer was out of service- The property manager asked what they could do to make this right. I suggested they have our laundry serviced off site and returned. That is exactly what they did. Excellent property management. (They picked it up and dropped it off. )
Bran L. Oct 2016
It was the nicest place we ever rented. The view was amazing.
Barbara J. Sep 2016
This is a place that you would love to have as a second home . Beautiful view and lots of things to do.
Michael F. Aug 2016
Quick getaway for our honeymoon. This place was perfect!
Deborah O. Jul 2016
Really enjoyed our stay... Would love to know a little history about the house.
Teresa C. Jul 2016
Ocean Breeze is a wonderful property! It has by far the best views of any home we have ever rented. The retro quirkiness of the home was absolutely charming!! Ocean Breeze will be our go-to house from now on. The spacious layout allowed for quiet private time and family gathering time, too. The only thing missing was the history of the property and home ... clearly there was a history and we wanted to learn all about it!
David S. Jul 2016
This house has the hands down best ocean views of any place we've rented over the years - truly spectacular. The photos do not do it justice. The very large hot tub is out at the end of the point of land the house is built on and is perfectly concealed by shrubs for privacy, yet there are plenty of "windows" in the foliage to see the ocean and beach. Some commenters have noted the house is "dated", which it is (late 1960's/early 1970's), but overall we did not find this to be a negative, rather it is part of its charm. We were very unhappy with the lack of cleanliness throughout the house and the kitchen stove was like cooking on cans of sterno or a camp stove. If we get assurances these problems are resolved, we'd definitely return.
Mike M. Jun 2016
Great house with an awesome location
Mihwa Y. Jun 2016
The view and location was awesome. A bit of odd layout though. There is a master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom downstairs and the other bedroom upstairs. Having three living rooms was a bit odd and waste of space I thought. And sharing only one bathroom upstairs was a little inconvenient.

Other than that everything was awesome and satisfactory.
Ricky O. May 2016
Great place and great location, would rent it again someday. The house is old looking but spacious. The only thing was the house has no access to the beach. You have to walk a quarter of a mile to get to the beach which was a bummer for us. The house was too big for 8 people, we fell asleep watching tv and the sound of the ocean waves.
Lisa K. May 2016
The location of this house is spectacular! EXTREMELY PRIVATE, Overlooking cliffs on three sides. No beach access from house; you must walk down the street. Not for little kids
as you are surrounded by cliffs. House a little dated, especially kitchen but quite clean. We had a great weekend and would stay again!
Chunchi C. Apr 2016
This house location is exceptional, the garden entry is beautiful, and yard landscape is well maintained with many blooming flowers. The house is spacious, and the view from the deck is just amazing.

We had a wonderful time here.

Once in a lifetime spot when on the Northern California coast. Complete comfort. Delightful and absolutely Dazzling!
V C. Mar 2016
Second year at this beautiful home! A true gem! What a spectacular place to make memories with your Family! Our kids have made us promise that The Ocean Breeze has to be our go-to- spot every year in Fort Bragg & how could we say no?! The location is just lovely, the views are breathtaking, the house is perfect, clean and supplies everything and WE ALL LOVE IT THERE!!!!! Thank you for sharing your home with us!! See you in 2017
Betty G. Mar 2016
This home is the fifth home we have rented in Fort Bragg, the view of the ocean was by far the best out of the five. We watched the whales the whole time we were there off the deck. If there was any downfall it would be that there was no access to the beach.
Karen Z. Mar 2016
This house is so wonderful! It rained the entire time we were there and we still had a great time. We were able to play family games and walk down to the beach during brief times the rain let up....
What is nice is the view. It is lierally "on the bluffs" so watch your pets at the edge of the property. We loved watching the tide changes and looked up high tide and low tide for the times we were there , enjoying the high waves the storm brought,
The house gave a unique seperation for guests -providing a way to have sleeping arrangements without bedrooms.
I gave suggestions for improvements as asked, but this house is beautiful and very relaxing! It was a birthday present to me and I Loved it!
Linden L. Mar 2016
Perfect place for a getaway
Lisa S. Mar 2016
This place was amazing. We had plans to visit Russian Gulch, check out some lighthouses, go kayaking and see Glass Beach. There are two reasons why we didn't go. 1) It was hard to leave the amazing view and I couldn't imagine anything that tops it. 2) It was raining most of the time, which was fine with us because we like stormy weather. Instead of eating out daily, we decided to get groceries and cook at the house. We didn't want to leave! Honestly, I'd rather stay at Ocean Breeze than go to Cabo or anywhere else. We will definitely come back. This house has everything, even a crock pot, which we used! We celebrated our 25th anniversary here and couldn't imagine a better place to go. Thank you Vacasa!!!
John M. Feb 2016
With the advantage of this home's location on a peninsula, it has views of the ocean from nearly every window. Most visitors will find that their initial visit to this home will be one of many to come; it is by far better and more convenient than most alternative pleasurable vacations.
Joanne G. Dec 2015
Cozy and spacious unique home with incredible views and so close to ocean you can hear the waves crashing from every window. Wrap around full balcony is amazing. Great location on end of quiet road and so close to both Fort Bragg and Mendocino. Highly recommend it.
Ibe L. Sep 2015
Everything was as described. I read the other reviews for specific details. I would definitely stay again. The views were breathtaking. My only regret was I wished I had booked longer.
Christian R. Sep 2015
We loved it here. There's not much else to say but that it was perfect. Blew our expectations out of the water and up the cliff side into the hot tub. There were only two down sides. One is the dishwashing situation. 1.) If you plan on cooking a lot (which I suggest because the restaurants aren't great in the area) you will have to deal with picking the food particles out of the sink with your hands. 2.) there was a homeless man sleeping on the beach near the house for the entirety of the stay which made my girlfriend feel uncomfortable. But in-spite of those two things it was one of the best trips we have ever been on
Donna A. Aug 2015
The location is wonderful, you fall a sleep to the sound of ocean. Note that the main living space is only accessible via a flight of stairs. The house is clean, and well furnished. The main living room with the fireplace has a musty smell. The kitchen is well stocked with kitchen items, the gas stove cooks very slow - no high on the burners.
Marc M. Jun 2015
We spent our honeymoon at The Ocean breeze. We loved every minute of our stay. The house is comfortable and unique. The surroundings are truly magical and majestic. Three of us rattled around the house (our dog loved everything as well), but we wouldn't have had it any other way. We look forward to calling this our anniversary home.
Skyler B. Jun 2015
You feel like there is nobody else around with open views and plenty of state land to wander.
Min P. May 2015
Didn't want to leave here...
Christen B. May 2015
This location is beautiful. We had a wonderful time!
Jennifer W. Apr 2015
This home really is a fantastic and unique place. We always look forward to our visit and feel fortunate to have had the experience of listening to the pounding surf, watching the waves crash and knowing that the house brings happiness and peace to all who enter.
Vrisa C. Apr 2015
This beautiful home surpassed our expectations. The pictures truly do not do this house justice. The wraparound deck it's just amazing. The property is beautiful and the views of the ocean are just breathtaking. We will definitely be booking another vacation, but this time a lot longer!!!! Thank you owners, property managers and of course Vacasa, for making our family vacation experience something to talk about for years. Memories were made!! The house is comfortable for eight people. The kitchen supplied everything we needed (and more) and again, the beauties of the home are worth experiencing! If we had millions of dollars we would want to buy that house :)
Manager response:
What a fantastic review! We are absolutely delighted that you had such a wonderful time at this gorgeous vacation home. The views are so spectacular and we are glad to hear that the home had everything you could need and more. The owners take great care in ensuring the home is warm and welcoming for guests. It is certainly a beautiful property to be able to spend time with family and make special memories in. Thank you for sharing your comments with us! We look forward to seeing you again!
Lynn C. Mar 2015
Unbelievable house, beautiful and unique. So many excellent places to go nearby. Only downside was two beautiful beaches on either side with difficult beach access. Not recommended if you have kids who want to run around (cliffs) but we will definitely be back to stay!!!
Angela L. Mar 2015
The location is unbelievable! We saw whales while sitting on the deck. I would love to go back for a longer stay. House was very clean. The house was so amazing we spent most of our time there although we did also go to the botanical gardens and a local state beach. Loved that it was also dog friendly!
Deborah R. Mar 2015
The house was beautiful, pictures do not do justice. Kitchen well appointed, quality cookware, dinnerware, all the bedding and towels you need. No dishwasher was the only negative on the kitchen. Every room has its own heat controls, views galore. You are on the edge of the ocean with bluffs right outside the door to walk on, as well as a private beach that can be accessed on the right side, you just have to hunt it. Hot tub was clean well placed, protected yet with some ocean views. Beds and bedrooms were very comfortable. Living room as well, all rooms really. Cable, WiFi and a land-line. Cell phones pretty much are not workable in most areas along the coast. Fort Bragg however has great cell phone reception. Overall we loved the home and its unique craftsmanship. The home is so well insulated you had to open the window or door to hear the ocean which is directly off the house. We also loved the beautiful grounds, well maintained as well as the privacy, and again, the views. It was even better and more comfortable then I had imagined. For the night sky gazers it was outstanding with no city lights to distract. We were lucky enough to observe a rare 22 degree halo around the moon one evening. Something I had heard about but never have seen. SO to sum it up if your looking for a relaxing, quiet, beautiful ocean edge home this is it. Has everything you need just bring the change of clothes & shoes and your camera!
Jennifer H. Feb 2015
I was a bit skeptical as the ad for this home seemed too good to be true. But I am happy to report that it was everything it claimed to be! Can't wait to come back for an even longer stay...
Kerry B. Feb 2015
Beautiful property would go back again
Dale B. Nov 2014
My wife and I were so bedazzled when arriving at the property we were like kids at the candy store. we were amazed as to the proximity of the house to the private beach right below the balcony(low tide others can get to the private beach but we seen no one)
Totally private home. Also, some rentals I have been in have a minimum amount of cook wear, dishes, glasses, etc, but this place had more then I could ever use. the utensils were top quality with every thing imaginable was there for our use.
Ocean views from 80% of the home was a dream come true!
Donna M. Nov 2014
If I had millions of dollars, I would buy this house in a heart beat. But just staying there the weekend was a blessing. I will come back next time and stay a week. The house sitting is beautiful and I am very please with the comfort the house offered. It was located in a perfect sitting close to town but far enough to feel secluded.
Scott D. Sep 2014
We had 5 adults and one child. The setting is fantastic. The views are great as is the privacy. One car maximum rule is a little odd if the place sleeps 8 though. This is a very comfortable house that is close to Fort Bragg. Two bedrooms plus two hide-a-beds works great for 2 or 3 couples but one hide-a-bed is in the kitchen area which was ok because we put the 7 year old there. :) Two big thumbs up.
Manager response:
Thanks for sharing your review. We love hearing back from guests who loved their stay. This home is fantastic and perfect for a family vacation. We'd like to clarify that the home does have parking for 4 cars, making a multi-family vacation easy!
Rob M. Aug 2014
Everything was great. The only thing I can help improve on is let everybody know there is no cell signal at all, Verizon or AT&T.. Finding front door difficult at first and in instruction Manuel where to find hot tub key. No Instructions on TV in north room.the last person had it on wrong channel and took a while to get programing back with no instructions. Enjoyed complete stay and will come back for sure. Thanks Rob.
Manager response:
Thank you for this great feedback, we have added the info into the binder in the home.
Craig T. Aug 2014
We had a great time and would not have changed anything.
Marcia K. Jul 2014
We loved it. The house is beautiful and the property is amazing with awesome views on both sides, we took hikes to the beach on the property next to the house.
Manager response:
Thank you for this feedback. This home is surrounded by gorgeous views since its perched right on the bluff overlooking the ocean. Its great to hear you enjoyed your stay with is. We hope you will come back soon.
