Comfortable bed, nice kitchen, comfortable chairs, great view, lovely flowers, two decks, good shower. We had a great stay and would return. We have spent many happy times in Mendocino and this was a new location to stay. Very charming. Only problem, the road is not so busy as to be noisy for the cottage at all, but in our opinion it is a little too narrow and busy to walk safely down to the bluffs or to town so we ended up driving. Not a big deal.

Sweeping Ocean Views. Wonderful, eclectic decorations. Well appointed with everything you could need in the kitchen. Thoughtful touches (warm blankets to snuggle in on the deck, binoculars to view passing whales). Excellent use of a small space. Never felt cramped. Close to town.

A great getaway, close to headlands and downtown. The decks are fabulous. Small space, but didnt feel cramped or lacking. Would stay again!

Beautifully staged studio cottage. Don’t be fooled by the map, which shows there is a road between the cottage and the sea. The view is actually unobstructed and magnificent.

The views of the ocean from the Artist’s Studio were amazing! An absolutely gorgeous setting.

The view is pristine, the kitchen is extremely well stocked, and for 2 people it’s plenty spacious. I also doubt you can find a better combination of price and location if you’re looking at staying on the North Cali coast. This is a gem

The directions for driving to the house were easy to follow right up until we parked the car. There was no mention that you have to walk completely around to the left, around the small shed, through a gate marked Private, to the front of the Studio. There you will find the lockbox. We spent about 30 minutes trying a different door because there was no mention of this go-around route. I called Vacasa but by the time they tried to help, we had already found the path. The house was great. It had everything, except any bit of food, save a Himalyan salt shaker. You need to bring everything if you are planning to eat there. The house was very comfortable and well-organized. It felt much larger than a studio. It was very convenient to go less than a mile to town but since Lansing Street has cars we decided to drive to town instead of walking. The views from the 2 porches were amazing. I would definitely stay here again - especially now that I know how to get in!

Our 2 weeks were perfect. Kitchen well stocked. Very clean. Fantastic views. Lots of storage space for a studio. Vacasa property management team were very responsive to our inquiries. Would definitely stay here again.

This was a perfect place! The view of the ocean was fantastic. The unit was extremely well designed and excellently kept. It really was a perfect vacation spot. I can't wait to get back there!!! Also, Vacasa support staff were superb.
