Stunning Home on the Bluffs w/ Ocean Views, Redwood Decks, & Sauna!

***Please note that there may be guests on the Studio side of the home during your stay.

Spectacular in both setting and design, this contemporary craftsman-style home perfectly captures the beautiful light, ocean views, and relaxed comfort of Mendocino and the wild Northern California Coast. Here on the bluffs overlooking Russian Gulch and the Mendocino Headlands, you'll find white-water ocean views in nearly every room, a great room with 18-foot ceilings and lovely exposed beams, and glass doors that open onto the ocean-facing redwood decks. Come home from your daily walks on the nearby beaches to savor the warmth and luxury of in-floor radiant heat, Waterford wood stoves, and a Scandinavian-style sauna.

What's nearby:
On the property of this south-facing home, you'll find gorgeous sunrise views, a garden overlooking the ocean that can be used for meditation or contemplation. Russian Gulch State Park is immediately south, and the Point Cabrillo Light Station State Historic Park is less than a mile north on Highway 1. The heart of Mendocino, a blufftop village known for its charming art galleries and wonderful restaurants, is just over two miles south, and downtown Fort Bragg awaits nine miles north.

Home was spacious and well appointed for a carefree relaxing time away from the noise and hub bub of daily life. Beautiful outdoor areas for spending relaxing time while enjoying the wonderful sounds of ocean waves. Definitely recommend this beautiful home for your visit to lovely Mendocino.

Overall, we had a nice stay in this spacious 3 bedroom home. We also happily brought our two dogs and enjoyed ourselves. Thank you for allowing dogs.
Point Cabrillo lighthouse and Redwood Gulch State Park are both very close by. You get a beautiful view of the ocean from the deck and I spent many happy hours reading on the large sectional couch with my dogs napping on the floor nearby. The home also had a nice selection of games and puzzles.
I deducted a star for the low-quality supplies (e.g., single-ply toilet paper worse than what I've used in gas stations, scratchy thin bath towels, and cheap flimsy paper towels). For over $800/night (all taxes and fees included), I expect nicer supplies and felt they cheaped out on these little things. It would also have been nice if there were a small welcome basket with coffee (as we've had in other high-end vacation rentals).
We also had an issue where the maintenance man came to try and fix a downstairs shower after the cleaners had cleaned. I learned this after calling Vacasa because he left a puddle of water on the bathroom floor (which soaked my socks) and muddy dog pawprints all over the bathtub itself (which I discovered when I opened the shower curtain). We ended up not even using that shower since the showerhead had a huge leak that sprayed water from the tubing, not the actual head. I discovered it the hard way when trying to wash off the muddy dog pawprints.
Final note: they are firm on the 4 pm check-in and 10 am check-out, which is unfortunate.
Manager response:
Thank you for telling us about your stay, Anna. We apologize our maintenance tech missed cleaning up after himself once he was done inspecting the shower; we have followed-up with him on this. The necessary part needed is on order so it can be repaired.

The house is top notch with many amenities, and a gorgeous garden. Outstanding views of the ocean, Point Carrillo lighthouse, Ave the Mendocino headlands. You are really close to Russian Gulch.
Two things to know : laundry is unavailable and there are residents and dogs in the attached unit.

This home was exactly as pictured and was perfect for my family's needs. It was very comfortable, conveniently located to downtown Mendocino and had beautiful views of the ocean!

Loved the location, well appointed, with great view. Family space was great. Beds very comfortable. Big hot tub! Great get get away. Can’t wait to go back. Could use a couple of things- washer/drier access (especially for longer stays) and the 10am check out seemed a little. Even with these, highly recommend!!

Great location within walking distance of Russian Gulch and the Lighthouse and a few minutes drive to Mendocino. Lots of space and ocean views. Especially nice in that it is dog friendly!

We spent a beautiful fall week at this lovely home. Met up with friends in Sausalito and drove up, stopping at wineries along the way. ( A MUST DO). The home is stunningly situated on the hillside, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Everyone was drawn to the magnificent views throughout the home and especially scenic from the great room, kitchen and attractive deck. The kitchen is very well equipped and large enough to allow for multiple cooks at once! The bedrooms are very large and beds are very comfortable. A huge plus after an active day. When you can step away from the views at the house, the walk to and through Russian Gulch State Park is a MUST!! The Point Cabrillo Light House and surrounding Historic Park is another enjoyable walk with gorgeous views. Downtown Mendocino does not disappoint. Very good restaurants, some with amazing views, as well as artisan shops and coffee/wine cafes. Lovely place to spend an afternoon. We hated to see our week come to an end….we took home wonderful wine and same amazing memories! We will be back.

My wife and I stayed at Mendocino Sunrise for a week in early July – thrilled that the County had opened up. This was a return visit for us, as we have stayed here several times when it was previously managed by Schoolhouse. The house was stunning before, but it appears the owners have added new carpet and a huge couch and chairs since we were here last. We love the location: views from every room, close to both Mendo and Ft Bragg, Russian Gulch, Pt Cabrillo, Casper Beach and Jughandle. Some of our favorite places. We also use this house as a home base for our wine tasting trips to the Anderson Valley and to the south coast – Pt Arena, Gualala, Jenner and Russian River. Ending the day with a glass of wine in the hot tub is one of our favorite things to do! Looking forward to our next visit. ~ Brian

Mendocino Sunrise ~ Lovely vacation home for a group get together or family reunion. We’ve hosted a girls weekend at in this beautiful and quiet home for the last three years and can’t wait to return. Some spend the days exploring and enjoying all the many activities in the area, while some stay at home and sit on the veranda, smelling the sea air, looking for whales and enjoying the peace and solitude. We love the expansive windows that look out on to the bluffs — so that whether you are sitting inside or out, you are always enjoying the view. Neighborhood is very quiet — rarely see another person. Mostly just deer and turkeys wandering by…. Home is well equipped, beds are comfy and hot tub is always bubbling. This property is perfectly situated to make you feel like you’ve gotten away from it all! We’ll see you next time!
