Lovely dog-friendly house with private hot tub, firepit, deck

Located in a very quiet neighborhood on the edge of Russian Gulch State Park, this beautiful, four-bedroom Mendocino house is waiting to provide your family and friends with lots of happy vacation memories, so pack your beach towels and get ready for a fun-filled getaway! Inside, the great room is open and spacious, with high, vaulted ceilings and skylights, wood accents, a wood-burning fireplace, and lots of attractive furniture and decor. The living room has plenty of comfortable seating surrounding a flatscreen TV, and you'll have fantastic tree views from every window. Adjacent to the living room, the reading nook includes a small bar area for assembling your favorite drinks. The full kitchen has all the small and major appliances and counter space the group chef could ask for, and you'll have plenty of counter space to work on as well. Serve up to six people at the handsome dining table while the kids chatter away from the two breakfast bar stools then let the dishwasher knock out all the dirty dishes while you adjourn outside with friends. Tuck into four well-appointed beds after a fun-filled day. (Please note the fourth bedroom is detached from the home and located off the garage.)

Outside, you'll find a large wrap-around deck furnished with a private gas grill and lots of seating. The kids will love romping around the enclosed yard with the family dog, and the private hot tub is great for soaking your weary muscles after a hot-weather hike. Gather everyone around the firepit to enjoy some toasted 'Smores and stargazing, then wrap up your evening with a good Netflix movie with the gang. Remote workers and students will have a desk to work from and the home's free WiFi will make it easy to do a bit of online research for those last-minute projects. Reward your hard work with a good hike or a fun trip to Agate Beach, just a mile away, then come back to spread out some board games for a fun game night with the kids. For even more outdoor activities, you'll find hiking, picnicking, surfing, kayaking, and fishing nearby, plus plenty of shopping and dining as well.

Loved the big windows and spacious living room. 3 decent sized bedrooms in the main house, 1 smaller bedroom attached to the garage that you access from outside. Kitchen is a bit old - one of the cabinet doors was falling off - and wasn’t super well stocked (some of the pans probably need to get replaced). House was freezing when we arrived and since it has such high ceilings, it took about 6 hours to heat up. Couldn’t locate any space heaters initially, but then found two in the closet in the bedroom attached to the garage.
Manager response:
Hi, Elisabeth! We're delighted you stayed with us and appreciate your feedback. The cabinet door has been repaired, and housekeeping has been reminded to turn the heat on for incoming guests. Thank you!

Literally in a redwood forest! House is good. Big family room, decently stocked kitchen. Fantastic hot tub which was very clean, just like the rest of the house. Great location, very close to Mendocino.

Relaxing under soft blankets on the deep couch looking out into the surrounding redwoods was magical. There were little peak a boo views of the Pacific Ocean from the house. Bed was extremely comfortable. We will be back!

What a lovely property. It was nothing short of perfect, thank you so much!

My five daughters and two adult grandchildren enjoyed a very rare long weekend together coming from Canada, LA, Sonoma County Redding and Chico. We loved the openness, the natural light, the well-equipped kitchen, the many conversation areas and, of course, the yard and hot tub area. This lovely home exceeded all our expectations.

After a 20 month hiatus, our whole family of eight, (5 adults and 3 children), spent three nights reconnecting and enjoying the comforts of home in an amazing setting. The house offered everything we needed including a kitchen filled with cooking utensils, a table large enough for everyone, comfy beds, and a large lovely back yard with a fire pit. S’mores we’re one of our highlights, along with playing among the trees. The games were quality and a big hit. Also appreciated was the quick response when we realized one of the showerheads was missing, for some mysterious reason. Within 30 minutes a handyman came and installed a new one. we are already planning a visit for next August. Thank you!

To say this place exceeded our expectations is putting it mildly. I loved the cleanliness of the home, we have rented other cabins and homes before that supposedly were clean only for us to have to clean them ourselves. My wife always packs bedding and pillows and extra linens and she found the cleanliness and quality of the home so good that she did not use any of our own things. This is a huge thing as she is extremely OCD about cleanliness. The little details and decorations of the home were outstanding as you can tell the love and care put into their selection. Things like the bird house on the tree, the lighthouse on the front, the drawing on the cement made it a wonderful discovery. The location of the house is perfect as you feel you are secluded in the forest and ocean but within very close to distance to towns and city. We have stayed at places where a hot tub is present and we have not used it because of its filthiness and overall aspect, well this not the case with this hot tub. It was in pristine condition and so clean it was super inviting we spent a ton of time in it. The home had everything in the kitchen you need for meals such as oven and pots and pans and utensils. Overall we highly recommend this home to everyone and we hope to be able to stay there once more in the future!!
