  • Spectacular!

  • Deb's place was absolutely wonderful. We enjoyed the ocean-side view and quiet town. If we head back to Mendocino in the future, we'll definitely stay here again.

  • The view and the location cannot be beat. The apartment is spacious, light, private and clean. Very pleasant. I would return in an instant. Only caveats are: (1) I wish the bed was a king instead of a queen, and (2) in my perfect world, there would be a hot tub on the deck :-).

    One last comment that really has nothing to do with this particular location. The airbnb fee was surprisingly high (well over 10% of the booking costs). Kinda ruined what otherwise was a great deal. So, while I'd return to Deb & this location, I'm not sure I'd return to airbnb.

  • Deb has a lovely apartment over a shop looking right out over the water. It's a delightful place. Simple and safe and comfortable. Close to everything and appropriately priced. We fell in love with Mendo and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Deb's place

  • Deb's Seaside Studio is wonderful! The location is incredible--right on Main Street and across from the Mendocino Headlands. My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon, and we couldn't have been happier. We spent as much time as we could on the balcony, enjoyed the easy walk to all the wonderful restaurants in town, and loved how easy it was to wander out on the bluffs. Deb was a wonderful host and the apartment had everything we needed and more.

  • My husband and I went for just one night, and had a great time. We seriously loved everything about the place. The views are undeniable magnificent. Will definitely be back.

  • Deb Kettner was a warm and accessible host. She bent over backwards to solve a dilemma with our internet connection. She even provided locally roasted coffee and a bottle of wine! The studio is bright and spacious. The balcony is so much fun to sit on that it's almost impossible to move once you sit down out there. The first morning, we saw a gray whale and her calf right there in the bay! It was so enjoyable to sit out there early in the morning and watch Mendocino wake up. You can observe birds, shoppers, boats, and whales if it's the right time of year. If you want to sleep in, bring a sleep mask, or the morning sun will wake you up. We loved the location. It's very quiet at night, and it is so nice to be able to access everything you need without getting in the car. We'll return to Deb's main street aerie!

  • Really lovely stay in downtown Mendocino. The host was very pleasant and easy to reach both by phone and at the shop that she runs below the studio. The studio itself was very large and bright with high ceilings, a nice deck, breathtaking views, and close to everything! Highly recommended.

    May 2014
  • A beautiful spot. The deck is the highlight of this place, excellent for spotting whales and bird watching over breakfast or a glass of wine in the evening. We were lucky to have great weather and enjoyed walking on the headland under blue skies, surrounded by abundant wild flowers. The views are fantastic and Mendocino has everything you need for a quiet seaside holiday. We made one trip to the Anderson Valley vineyards but did not want to leave the balcony for too long. (In case we missed more whales...) Deb was very helpful and the booking process straightforward.

    May 2014
  • We couldn't have been happier with the studio, and Deb was a fantastic host. The view from the deck in particular was breathtaking. We also enjoyed the full kitchen and the comfy bed. We can't wait to return!
