Enjoy a magnificent garden and deck at this four-bedroom Mendocino home, a breathtaking family retreat where you'll find abundant space for entertaining and wonderful access to the trails, beaches, and towns of the Northern California Coast. Ideal for reunions and peaceful family getaways, this three-level home sits on the eastern edge of Point Cabrillo Light Station State Historic Park, just one mile from the historic lighthouse itself. You'll be only half a mile from Frolic Cove Beach and its surrounding coastal trails, three miles north of Mendocino, and eight miles south of downtown Fort Bragg.

Your vacation begins in the great room, which features exposed beam ceilings and plush leather furnishings that will make you feel right at home. Admire meadow, forest, and partial ocean views through the picture windows, relax in front of the wall-mounted flatscreen TV, or use the WiFi to check your email. Prepare meals as a family in the open gourmet kitchen, which offers a farm sink, black granite countertops, 48-inch professional range, and modern appliances that include a dishwasher. Each morning, you can sip a cup of coffee in the window seat before setting the breakfast table in the window-lined dining room.

But the true beauty of Caspar Dream lies in its gorgeous outdoor spaces, which include a verdant garden and a spacious deck that were designed for entertaining. Fire up the gas grill each evening and enjoy the lovely sunset view from the patio table.

Your Northern California escape begins today - spend some quality time with your friends and family at this beautiful Mendocino home!

When we arrived at Caspar Dream, we were met by a welcome crew of seven deer (three bucks, two does, and two fawns) grazing on the lawn outside. That pretty much set the tone for our entire stay. The location and views are incredible, and the interior common rooms, decks, and garden were perfect for a group of nine adult friends who appreciate space in their togetherness.

The house was immaculate when we arrived, and everything from light switches to kitchen cabinets were well-labeled for ease of figuring things out. None of us could get cell service, but the internet was stable and fast enough that we didn't run into any issues.

Overall, we had a fantastic stay and would be happy to return to this dream house. Give our love to the deer!

First time we have vacationed with my husband's family. The house was close to so many attractions like the Point Cabrillo Light House, the Russian Gulch State Park, Caspar Beach, and so much more. Amazing views of the ocean from the 2nd floor and decks! We were able to relax and watch the sunset each night. We would definitely book this house again.
Jeremy G. Feb 2022
One of the best places we have stayed in the area. The setting was outstanding and the layout, amenities, chefs kitchen and quaility of furnishings of the house itself was exceptional!
Nikolay P. Nov 2021
Very good location. House is very well equipped, clean, and well maintained.
Christina W. Oct 2021
The two of us had stayed in Caspar Daydream last year, and this year we brought some friends to stay at Caspar Dream. It's a wonderful "home away from home" with everything we needed. Great location in Caspar to get to fave hiking and ocean views, but also wonderful to hang out at the house - inside or on the spacious deck. The kitchen is fantastic and well supplied. We all agreed we'd come back again.

Just a couple of mostly minor issues: a) the DVD player didn't work, b) the carbon monoxide alarm in the upstairs bedroom went off the first evening there (used battery notification), then on the last night there, the smoke alarm (again, probably old battery) went off in the same bedroom and it's too high to reach. We lost some sleep due to these alarm's battery backups not kept up to date and the resulting loud beeping, and c) there were 4 musicians in our group and the nice lyrics on the kitchen wall is incorrect (it's "I think to myself..." not "I say to myself..." Like I said, mostly minor issues.

This home was perfect for my family "mini reunion". We were all in town for my nephew's wedding and the house is perfectly situated in between Fort Bragg and Mendocino.

The house is spacious and well appointed.
Noe H. Aug 2021
Had a great time with my family.
Dana P. Aug 2021
The house was very clean and I was impressed with how well the kitchen was stocked with everything needed to prepare meals. The patio was a perfect gathering place with a beautiful ocean view. We will definitely be back!
Susan M. Aug 2021
Was beautiful as always thank you !!!
Michelle A. Jul 2021
This was our second stay at Caspar Dream....and I can’t wait for next time. I love this house. It has all the amenities one needs, beautiful view, comfortable living and excellent location.
Rachel L. May 2021
We loved this home! Plenty of space, great location, very clean.
Susan H. May 2021
My family and I rented “Caspar Dream” to celebrate my 70th birthday. The house was very comfortable for our family of 9. The kitchen has a great gas range and was well supplied, although we mostly dined out. It was only missing a can opener. We enjoyed a hike at Russian Gulch State Park and shopping in the quaint town of Mendocino. Lovely weekend!
Yolanda R. Apr 2021
Excellent sleeping accommodations. Great deck space and views.
Margo F. Mar 2021
During pandemic times, this house gave us plenty of space when we were inside and quick access to nearby beaches and hiking trails. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need and then some. It was more money than we'd normally spend but worth every penny.
Sandra C. Mar 2021
The home was amazing. Spaciousness, views, location, 1st class all the way!!
Noe H. Jan 2021
I enjoyed the view and the specially the kitchen window while having breakfast. The garden is beautiful and the area is very quite a plus. I recommend taking basic supplies ( salt, pepper, oil, paper towels, extra trash bags) unusual with our experienced with other property rentals.
I will stay again and recommend it for large families.
Keri J. Nov 2020
Fantastic home for families
Fallon W. Oct 2020
Love the big layout. 3 floors, spacious rooms, comfy bedding. Awesome deck and furniture to relax in. Disappointed the jacuzzi is not working. Thanks for housing us. Great memories were made.
Ashley L. Aug 2019
The house was wonderful! It was so nice to fit the whole family into one house. Beds were super comfy, views were absolutely gorgeous, hottub was a huge plus. My favorite part of the house was early morning coffee on the deck. I could have lived out there the whole stay. 😍😍
Susan M. Apr 2019
Very cjean
Mark M. Jan 2019
This is the second time I have stayed at Caspar Dream and like before it did not disappoint. The house is large and great for groups, while still giving you the space to have privacy. The main level has a large very well stocked kitchen and an great big deck to enjoy the beautiful views. We will definitely be staying here again!
Barbara I. Jul 2018
Just being away from the heat was a plus for all of us. We are a group of friends that get together each summer. The views were beautiful. We all welcomed the group of turkey that wandered thru and also the family of deer.
Dianne F. Jul 2018
Loved the spaciousness and the convenience. House was very clean except appliances.(see below) It had wonderful decks and great views. Hot tub jets needed cleaning as well as the stove/oven and BBQ. Two burners were not working and other burners didn’t burn evenly. BBQ was very dirty and wouldn’t light. Electrician said stove igniter was shot and whole stove needed cleaning.
Manager response:
We cleaned the BBQ and the Stove in the home, both items are working, However, there are two burners on right side of the stove that are not working at this time. Will make a sign for guests that state the two right burners are not working at this time. The hot tub will be drained and the jets will be cleaned made a ticket for staff to complete this duty.
Francine H. Jun 2018
The house was beautiful and spacious! The decks offered many different views. The house was large enough for a big group. Casper beach is right down the road and Point Cabrillo Lighthouse is very close as well. The garden reminded us of a mini Botanical Garden. We would definitely stay here again!
Sue M. Apr 2018
This is perfect for our family. Beautiful view, close to Caspar beach, an perfect size for a large family!!!
Larry K. Apr 2018
Great kitchen and big table for the ten of us, including three small grandchildren, to enjoy family dinner while watching the sun set over the ocean, or eating breakfast spying on the wild turkeys and deer on the large grassy area outside. This home was a perfect fit for us, and we used all the bedrooms with our two adult daughters and our son, along with the three little ones and us. We could hike to the beach, or visit the attractions in Mendicino, Fort Bragg, and the Anderson Valley on the way here.
jessica m. Mar 2018
Well stocked, lovely home with a spectacular view of the ocean. We were able to cook amazing meals with what was provided in the kitchen as well as walk to and explore the gorgeous coast. Couldn’t have been better!
Tracy H. Mar 2018
This was a beautiful home and was perfect for our wine festival weekend!
Megan P. Jan 2018
We were so very impressed with the Casper dream house and with vacasa! We reccomend both to everyone now!
Rebbecca I. Jan 2018
We really enjoyed our stay - 4 couples in town for a chill NYE on the coast. House was spacious, clean, well located and beautiful views.

Pros -
Although it's not on the water you still get a nice view of the ocean.
Plenty of space and bathrooms for our group of 8
Lovely fully equipped kitchen
Nice location between Mendo and Fort Bragg
Beds were comforable
Everything labeled and explained
Beautiful dining table great for group dinners
amazing deck

Cons -
Heating down stairs (first floor of 3) did not work or was not availble
More of a note than a con - bathrooms are not on-suites - 2 beds on first floor 1 full bath | 1 Bed on main floor 2 full baths | loft offers 2 beds and one bath with only a tub. (not really the worst by any means just good to know that they aren't all attached to rooms)

Over all we had a wonderful stay and would be happy to stay again!
Manager response:
We apologize this guest was not able to get the heat going and wish they had contacted us. The property manager has ensured it is clearly outlined in the guest binder that there are two thermostats for the home. Thank you!
Priscila B. Oct 2017
Very spacious home with an abundance of light and great amenities. Love the large private garden and hot tub. Beautiful views from both decks. One of the garage doors wasn't plugged in (couldn't be reached without a ladder) so only 1 car could be parked inside despite it being a 2 car garage. Limiting a 4 bedrm house to 3 cars is inconvenient for 4 couples sharing the house. There is plenty of room for more while still keeping off the grass. The decor/furniture in the downstairs queen is significantly subar in comparison to the other bedrooms and really the house in general. The lock on the hot tub was rusted and difficult to use. Beautiful kitchen and it had all we needed -an abundance of spices! Lots of room to spread out when we wanted a little alone time.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see parking was difficult for this guest and wish they had contacted us so we could have looked into the situation. One side of the garage is kept disabled so it is available when the outdoor furniture needs to be brought in, but we are happy to try and accommodate our guests on this when possible. Thanks!
Brandon K. Oct 2017
We filled Caspar Dream with 10 people and the house was super comfortable. The carpet is nice and plush and warm, the decks are great when the sun is out, and the kitchen is amazing for cooking up large family meals. I highly recommend this spot!
Suresh G. Oct 2017
I organize dive trips to Mendocino. This is our second stay at this property. We didn't use the hot tub this time, but the house is at a convenient location. Lots of space for all of us. Kitchen was well stocked so we enjoyed amazing dinner(s).
Robin C. Sep 2017
This house was perfect for our large family. We were a group of 10 including 1-year old twins and a 3 1/2 year old. The home is nicely laid out for those wanting privacy, but also perfect for gathering in the living / dining area or on the deck. Cooking in the beautiful kitchen was a treat and the pots, pans, dishes, etc. are much nicer than any I have encountered in a rental house.
Richard M. Sep 2017
Nice home with excellect Kitchen, but too many maintenance issues. Stay was cut short when water went off and no plumber available to fix the problem.
Christine P. Sep 2017
My friends and I had a lovely weekend in Mendocino. The house was exactly what was advertised in the photos, and the location/proximity to the beach can't be beat. I'd definitely recommend this house and Vacasa in general to people looking for vacation rentals for any occasion.
Jack R. Aug 2017
Perfect for our large family. Kitchen is amazing. Large open area including kitchen, living and dining areas. Nicely furnished in living room and dining table is plenty big and quite nice. Only disappointments were musty smell and old bed clothing. There is a beautiful narrow view of the distant ocean which caught everyone's eye throughout the week. One minute drive to Cabrillo point parking and delightful 5min walk to the ocean.
Alice W. Aug 2017
Great place for family to gather, with big open kitchen and dining area, and deck with ocean view.
Wendy G. Jul 2017
My family of eight thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this very spacious, clean, and well-furnished home. The dining table is huge and gorgeous, and if I could I would replicate the kitchen in my home! My mattress was extremely comfortable, and my family said the same for their bedrooms. The hot tub was so relaxing after hiking on the beach, and so many stars can be seen at night. The home is conveniently located and very private.
Debbie G. Jul 2017
Lovely house for a vacation. Would recommend this house for large families.
Scott V. Jun 2017
Fantastic vacation spot for a family get together! Nice, clean, modern large house, will definitely be staying here again!
David D. Jun 2017
The house has an amazing open kitchen / living room area, which fills with natural light during the day and creates a perfect area for a large group, which enjoys cooking and eating. The bedrooms were also very clean and comfortable and the location is second to none. Would highly recommend this house for any large family or group.
Robin A. Jun 2017
Wonderful to see so much wildlife all around the house. Fabulous kitchen.
Cynthia P. May 2017
Great house for group of friends or large family. Home provided all the necessary amenities, clean, and well organized. There is a nice partial view of the ocean in the distance off the deck and from dining room table. We would definitely recommend this home.
Susan M. May 2017
I would rent this home again it's in a great location very private an beautiful.
John C. May 2017
This wonderfully spacious house provided us with ample room to be together or to have privacy, as we desired. The kitchen is beautifully designed to allow a large group to eat, cook and clean up without getting in each other's way. Nice large barbeque on the deck!
The location is ideal for walking along the cliffs over the ocean and for driving a short distance to marked hikes through astounding Redwood forests. We all had a great experience at Caspar Dreams.
Alyssa K. Apr 2017
The home was absolutely beautiful! Every single bed was extremely comfortable, and for the most part the house was very clean. There were like stains on the carpet and crumbs and some trash under the couches though. The view was fantastic and the beach was walking distance (even though that hill is a struggle to walk up when coming back from the beach!!)
Salvador R. Apr 2017
It was a great experiense to rent this home. It was absolutely stunning and the scenery was outstanding. Would highly recommended to others
Susan C. Apr 2017
Beautiful house... Enjoyed the views...Convenient location
Emily S. Mar 2017
Kids were upstairs, plenty of space, cushy carpet, beautiful kitchen, nice decks, nice view, close to beaches and 2 towns. Excellent restaurants close by. Cozy king bed on second floor, nice furnishings. We'll be back!
Jennifer N. Nov 2016
This house fit us perfectly! Loved the kitchen.
Julie G A. Nov 2016
Great venue for having Thanksgiving dinner, family reunion or a small casual get together.
Mickey S. Oct 2016
Beautiful home! Large, spacious great room with open concept living area, kitchen, and dinning area. Bedrooms and baths are clean and well maintained.
Pam D. Oct 2016
Nice property, spacious and good location- worked great for our group.
Dave H. Sep 2016
worked well for us... grandparents, parents with toddler, and aunt.
Sharon K. Sep 2016
This home was a great place to stay. Lots of room for family vacations. WiFi is spotty along that area of the coast, but that isn't the property's problem. We enjoyed our time there.
Steve G. Sep 2016
Stayed 4 nights with a large group. Not within walking distance of much but close enough to Fr Bragg and Mendocino for very short drives. Great place for a large group. Good kitchen and nice great room for all to hang. Large deck was awesome when the weather was good too.
Jeffry R. Sep 2016
Amazing property! The kitchen had everything we needed! The beds were super comfy and the place was just perfect! We will stay there again!
Dawn W. Sep 2016
Seriously beautiful house. The kitchen is amazing. Enough rooms that 8 of us had perfect amount of privacy and the common areas were fun for games. Hide & Go Seek is perfect in this place! Garden in the back is very cute. Deck is great. Within a few miles are some amazing parks with beaches. Only complaint was we had to leave!
Richard P. Aug 2016
I really liked the way the rooms were spread out in the house, the kitchen was awesome but could be stocked better. But all in all we had a great time and would love to make this an annual event.
DANIEL N. Aug 2016
lots of room great time
Alison C. Aug 2016
Wonderful home, well worth the price! We enjoyed a lovely family reunion for 14 people - kids included. The dining room, kitchen, and balcony was a great gathering place. However, don't forget to bring sleeping bags if you plan on using the pull out beds!
Shelly C. Aug 2016
This home is a wonderful get-away! Spacious, classy and comfortable! Beautiful lighting, large windows, lovely yard. Hot tub was a fav with our group. Overall, a terrific experience!
Ed B. Jul 2016
Beautiful home, amazing CA experience!
Larry H. Jul 2016
Wow - what a place! The house was in perfect condition, and fit our entire family comfortably. The kitchen was gorgeous, and flowed easily into the very large deck giving views of the pacific ocean. Caspar itself is less than 10 minutes from Ft Bragg and Mendocino, so we found plenty to do within easy travel distance. The internet connection was strong enough to support getting some work done (Yes, yes, vacation - I get it). The hot tub was tucked away in a private corner of the yard. Everything was enjoyable, and we plan on staying in this house in the years to come!
Binh-Young T. Jul 2016
Beautiful home in a beautiful area. Wish it were easier to get to, would come more often if it were not such a difficult drive.
Kristy N. Jun 2016
The house was very roomy! There were three rooms with queen/king beds and a loft room on the top floor with two beds and a futon. The kitchen was spacious and looked newly remodeled. There was a great deck to hang out and we got to see the Deers and the wonderful scenery. The hot tub worked wonderfully and was very clean. It was very close to the beach and to town. We only had 10 people and it was more than enough space for everyone, definitely will inquire for our next trip!
