We had a family celebration of a 50th wedding anniversary and Vista del Mar was great. The two master suites worked well for the two couples and the wing over the garage with the game room was great for the kids. Kitchen was airy and functional with all the basics, heated floor in the upstairs master bath a nice touch. The back yard was well protected from the wind and we enjoyed a nice sunny lunch on the back deck. Overall, very nice!
Bobby D. Apr 2022
Always enjoy coming here to stay at this house. A little something for everyone plus space to spread out for the whole family! It would be awesome to see a hot tub for the backyard and maybe even a propane fire table in the front or back for a bit more relaxation options!
Manager response:
Bobby, thank you for providing your valuable feedback, as we use your comments as a means to continually improve. We look forward to hosting you again.

Location, location. Spacious home, beautiful garden.
Debbie P. Mar 2022
Views of the ocean from kitchen & living room are beautiful. The beach is jus across the street
Raymond G. Feb 2022
I liked the house being right on the ocean in a very quiet neighborhood. Great accommodations for 3 couples with each having their own bathroom. The haul road in front of the house is a great place to walk or ride a bicycle for 6 miles each way into Fort Bragg.
Debbie P. Jan 2022
Amazing view of ocean from living room & kitchen. Easy access to beach. Home is well appointed and comfortable. Will certainly return.
Coppage M. Dec 2021
Lovely, comfortable, clean home with the most beautiful views. Enjoyed a family Christmas vacation cooking in the nice kitchen, walking the beach, playing games, enjoying the gorgeous backyard. Wonderful location.
Gwen B. Dec 2021
The house is clean, beautiful, and spacious with incredible views. You can sit at the kitchen table and watch the ocean, as well as in the living room. The back yard is uniquely landscaped with plenty of space for eating and kid play. The beach and walks right out the door are perfect. Restaurants close by in Ft Bragg.
Meagan S. Oct 2021
As two young families we had an amazing time at Vista Del Mar. The house felt much bigger than the photos, there was plenty of room for all of us to have our own space. The backyard is breathtaking, and the sunset views unmatched. A big beautiful beach right across the street was perfect for the kids and morning runs/walks. The house is a little dated, but it was perfect for us with little kids. Town was less than 10min away but we honestly wanted to spend most of our time at the house so we didn't go out much. Highly recommend.
Veronica M. Sep 2021
When we went to the beach when the neighbor wasn’t able to spy on us she made it very uncomfortable
Manager response:
Hi Veronica, Your feedback is greatly appreciated thank you for submitting it. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you experienced with the neighbor during your stay. We will follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience. We hope for another opportunity to host you again soon, for a much more enjoyable stay!
Danielle L. Aug 2021
We loved our stay and hope to make it a yearly tradition.
Cheryl B. Jul 2021
This house has an amazing beach front view of the ocean and ocean access is right out the front door
Shaun H. Apr 2021
Excellent quiet area, beautiful views. Back yard was wonderful to enjoy the sun and gardens. Home was nicely decorated and stocked with any needs. Immaculately cleaned, we look forward to returning. Thank you for sharing your home.
Bobby D. Apr 2021
Great house with amazing views, beautiful back yard! Hard to leave!
Christa M. Apr 2021
This house takes the cake on location and view! The kids loved the backyard. A few kitchen items would help fill the gap on essentials: a can opener, decent sharp knives, some microwave safe plates, a lighter for the grill (we left one for the next guests), maybe kid-friendly cups, and actual wine-specific glasses. The only other thing to note was that the queen and twin size beds were on the completely opposite side of the house from the two masters.
Manager response:
Hello, thank you for staying with us. We are glad you enjoyed the amazing views and location during your stay! We apologize for the issues you encountered during your stay and appreciate your feedback. The property manager has purchased kid-friendly plastic cups, wine glasses, a can opener, and new knives. We hope to host you in the future!
Peggy M. Mar 2021
Beautiful views from living room, kitchen and both main bedrooms. Beach is just across the street-walk for miles. Very inviting, well cared for, lovely backyard.
Fiona P. Feb 2021
House was awesome, and such a great view! Felt very “homey!” Our family was very pleased!
Vanessa A. Feb 2021
Just book it, you will not regret it!
Wanda B. Jan 2021
With walls of windows, you can see the ocean waves from almost anywhere in the house. Very nicely appointed with clean and comfortable furnishings. Wi-Fi signal excellent. Would have been very nice to have a hookup to the speaker system. Lack of music a minor flaw.
Natasha S. Dec 2020
We absolutely love coming to stay at Vista del Mar! We try to spend every Thanksgiving here! Its the best.
Charlotte and lane R. Nov 2020
The 2 master bedrooms great for couples. The other 2 bedrooms not so comfortable for adults. Loved the views from kitchen and LR.
Kari E. Oct 2020
This house has the perfect view & location! It was our second time staying here & it was even better! Perfect for biking & beach walking!
Daniel B. Sep 2020
Location is everything, and this house has it. Awesome views.
Plenty of room
Cheryl B. Sep 2020
Being able to stand anywhere in this homes kitchen or living room is a beautiful ocean view. Walking straight out to the ocean shoreline is 5 minutes away.
Suren S. Jul 2020
Best property we've ever rented. It has it all - beach access, expansive backyard with trail, ocean views, spacious house.
Sheila G. Mar 2020
We had a great in a beautiful house in an incredible location. The views from the house are amazing. Nothing like making your coffee in the morning looking out the kitchen window and looking at the whales. Seriously!! The house was very well stocked. The kitchen was better stocked than any other house we have stayed at before. Easy to get to, plenty or parking, wall to wall windows, beautiful backyard, deer running around in the back yard etc. I wouldn't even look for another house this is IT.
manya w. Mar 2020
This lovely home has a secret garden out back and a beautiful kitchen looking out to the grand Pacific. Members of our group especially enjoyed gathering round the kitchen table to visit. There are lots of stairs, and the home is cheerfully decorated in a nautical theme. I really like how it's just a short walk to the haul road, and again a short way down to the beach. Nature and great walking is near!

The pictures do show the beauty of this home! The views are amazing! We can not wait to stay here again.
Celia H. Nov 2019
Loved the location,, the backyard was amazing!
Cynthia C. Oct 2019
Right on the ocean, and the sunsets were marvelous. The kitchen was awesome, the beds were comfortable, and the back yard was beautifully landscaped. What more could you ask for?
David G. Aug 2019
The house is well build and solid. Layout is great for multi-family. Furniture is comfortable and well made. Water and plumbing is good. Appliances work well. Heating is warm and quiet. Landscaping is beautiful and well maintained. WIFI is strong. We had a problem with the TV and it was fixed right away. DVD player did not work.
Mary L. Jul 2019
Loved the size of the house and the beautiful views. The backyard was plush and lovely. The location of two of the rooms being on an opposite side of the house was not desirable with a child staying so far away and one room was extra small (twin bed in a playroom) which was an odd set up but would not deter us from renting it again. The location across from the beach is perfect. The semi automatic blinds were nice! Bring extra hand towels. DVD did not have a remote and was unusable.
Jasmit S. May 2019
Had a great time with friends and family. Very nice home and well kept too.
Manya W. Mar 2019
This home has many delightful surprises: a wonderful variety of views of the grand Pacific, a fascinating collection of decorative items, and a beautiful, well-planned-and-tended "secret garden". My grandchildren would certainly enjoy a game of hide-and-go-seek here, as there are many stairs, levels, and special places for hiding. Best of all is a very well-equipped kitchen with a sink facing the ocean. This home was certainly tidy and bright on our arrival. We had lots of fun here, and our group would definitely enjoy returning some day.
Roger S. Jan 2019
This house was perfect for our extended family. Easy access to the haul road and 10 mile beach. This kitchen is well equipped but you will need to bring your own plastic wrap/foil. There is a BBQ with propane in the backyard which is nicely landscaped. Beautiful ocean view. Fuse ball and games-beach toys, towels and beach chairs all provided. We would definitely stay again.
Valerie G. Jan 2019
We loved everything about this spot. The home was nice and provided many of the amenities needed during our stay. The location is unbeatable, steps away from the ocean with miles of quiet beach and walking paths.
Vicky S. Jan 2019
Well maintained home w easy access to beach across the street.
Home was clean upon arrival. Only 1 key noted, called property management and they brought out addition key, as we had 5 people.Great views from living room, and kitchen/table of ocean.
If sitting in family room you are below ocean view level. Quiet neighborhood. Great place to ring in 2019. Backyard private and
nicely landscaped. Majority of furniture comfortable, however; furniture in family showing wear, w tears in ottoman. Be aware all of the beds in this home are extremely firm, almost like sleeping on board. Closest store Cleone about 5 min ride. There are no stores, restaurants, coffee shops withing walking, however we knew this. Great kitchen to cook in. Bring your own foil/plastic wrap, etc. Lots of spices in cupboard.
Be aware fireplace and garage are not part of ammenities.
In order to book this home again, beds would need to be updated with new mattresses. Furniture updated in family room.
Stayed 5 days, great weather, good food, and good memories.
This was our 42nd year of celebrating New Year's together!
Ariana B. Dec 2018
This house is really a special place. Better than the pictures make it. Well appointed kitchen, playroom with books and games for kids, beach chairs, cozy heating system (we visited during the winter). The view and access to the haul road walk along the beach was restorative. Magical backyard and landscaping. Whimsical decor that made for great conversation. Thank you!
Eric J. Nov 2018
Very clean, comfortable, and spacious. We enjoyed our stay very much. Kitchen is nice to wake up to. Making yer coffee while watching the surf.
Laura K. Nov 2018
This house had wonderful views of the ocean from almost every room. Ten-mile beach is just a short walk away so you can stroll on the beach every day.
Cynthia G. Oct 2018
We always try to stay in this area when visiting Fort Bragg. The lo9cation to the beach is key. The home was nice, however the kitchen needed some updates. There are some maintenance items that need to be addressed on the property as well. Over all, these things did not prevent the family from having a wonderful vacation.
Carol K. Sep 2018
This home is perfect for a group, with lovely views of the ocean from many sides of the house. It is roomy and comfortable. The backyard with its magical path is a total retreat. It surrounds you in greenery and beckons you to explore. The ocean is right across the street with easy access for endless beach walks.
Robert G. Aug 2018
This was a very beautiful home on the Pacific coast sited in a beautiful national park.

Large and spacious for three generations. Walking distance to the ocean and walk/bike trail. Saw whale spouts and flukes from the front porch!
Justine J. Jul 2018
We had a wonderful weekend at this property!! The house was a great size with the perfect amount of space! We made some memeoried we’ll never forget...and some I’m sure we wish we could lol.
Honestly one of the best houses I’ve ever rented in fort bragg area.
The refrigerator wasn’t staying cold, but the company brought out two smaller units to compensate. Then out coffee maker started leaking lol. So after a long night of drinking we just had to double team making coffee. One holding towel over the leak and the other pouring water. Nothing that detoured is from this amazing house!! We will book again! Thank you :)
Christine Z. Jul 2018
Loved the house and the views. The backyard was a very pleasant surprise! Very charming! Great access to the beach plenty of parking. Bummed that we could not get the second television to work and we couldn’t find a switch for the patio light by the BBQ. It was a little dark out there. Loved all the books and the front deck. We would definitely love to come back!
Manager response:
We are sorry to see there were issues with the TV and patio light and wish this guest had called for assistance so we could provide them with instructions for both.
SCOTT M. Jul 2018
The house is amazing and beautifully decorated with views of the surrounding vineyard.
Cynthia F. Jun 2018
From the youngest in our group of ladies (39), to the most senior (81), we all absolutely loved this home! From the spacious redwood deck in front, facing the magnificent Pacific, to the meticulously kept backyard, we so enjoyed the great outdoors without even leaving the property! All we had to do was cross the hardly traveled residential road to be at the dunes and the beaches off Ward Avenue. Heaven! The property is neighboring MacKerricher Park and a short drive to all the shops in Fort Bragg and Mendocino. We had a ball strolling through the various shops, including thrift stores and Noyo Harbor.
Let me talk about the house. We all agreed that it was just about perfect! The living and family rooms were both very comfortably furnished. The kitchen was a 5 out of 5 stars! It was stocked with every size pot, pan, bowl, and utensil that we needed. Double door refrigerator with an ice maker and even a trash compactor for our convenience! Best of all, it has a wall of windows facing the Ocean! Glorious views!!!
Each of the 3 bedrooms had their own bathroom which was perfection for 6 ladies! Plus a 1/2 bath downstairs.
There’s even a loft area playroom, with so many different board games to choose from, including poker chips and cards which we put to good use!
The only critique is that the bathroom in the 1st upstairs bedroom has a foul odor coming from the bathroom closet. Very strong odor of moth balls perhaps? And some of us definitely missed having a tv in the bedrooms.
All in all this is a wonderful house located just this side of heaven!
Manager response:
The bathroom closet is unused, so we have aired it out and placed some cedar in there. We apologize for the bad odor.
Chris S. Jun 2018
Clean and functional house, great location across from the beach, well organized communication from management company - we will be back!
Lynne B. Jun 2018
The home is spacious, light, clean, warm and comfortable.
It is kid friendly and a joyful place to host your family.
Thank you
Richard W. Jun 2018
Right across from the beach and spectacular views from every room. Nice decks front and back for watching the waves or enjoying lunch in the sea air. Skipped the Mendocino botanical garden because the backyard garden was just as good. Far enough from town for quiet beach strolls, but short drive to several markets. Lot of harbor seals around the rocks just south. We had young kids and they enjoyed this beach for the tidepools and dynamic waves, but highly recommend day trips to the other beaches farther south (Navarro was our favorite).
Corinne E. May 2018
loved the ocean view from almost every room in the house.
Jonathan F. May 2018
The house was big, with multiple bathrooms, so each family in our group had their own privacy in that sense. The view in the morning is just plain beautiful, nothing like waking up the view of waves. It was very clean and it easy to get in get out, I would definitely come back.

My Overall Experience: Excellent! A gorgeous, spacious home. Cozy and comfortable furnishings and décor, with many large, beautiful windows providing stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. A peaceful, uplifting place to get away for rest and relaxation. Location: Very quiet neighborhood. Home is on the frontage road and directly faces the beach! Amenities: Beautiful modern kitchen appliances. Mudroom with washer and dryer. Luxurious bed linens. Quirky, fun artwork and sculpture pieces. Gorgeous window treatments. Lovely tilework and countertops in kitchen and bathrooms. Lots of books and reading nooks. Professionally landscaped with a lovely backyard with wooden deck and inviting seating options. Garage provides covered parking. Condition of Home: Superb! Cleanliness: Excellent! Experiences I recommend: Walk or cycle along the beach to Glass Beach. Visit Fort Bragg and Mendocino and explore the many quaint shops, art galleries, and restaurants. Don’t miss the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens and take a ride on the Skunk Train.
