Our place is less than 5 minutes from the village of Mendocino on the ocean side but in a private, quiet neighborhood. We are close to Russian Gulch State Park, Point Cabrillo Lighthouse and Casper Beach great for hiking and visiting the beach.

The space
Garden lovers and romantics alike will especially enjoy this charming cottage that has the best of both worlds--views of the ocean and a garden setting. Enjoy a romantic breakfast or lunch in the secluded North Coast garden surrounded by flowers and tall trees that are protected from the cold winds on the bluffs. Soak in our Japanese cedar hot tub in the same private setting to the sound of the little rushing stream and waterfall in the gulch below. Our deck is perfect for basking in the sun during the day or stargazing at night.

The house is light and bright with vaulted ceilings, skylights, and French doors looking on the garden. Enjoy evening warmth by the Finnish wood-burning stove in this cozy home with a open kitchen perfect for entertaining with friends. There is also an antique carved piano or satellite TV for evening enjoyment. The romantic Master bed is filled with down comforters and flowing, sheer curtains. Wake up to the view of the ocean framed by the coastal forest.

Guest access
House is by itself on the property with a private garden and hot tub.

Other things to note
We have rented our place to romantic couples, honeymooners, and traveling friends for over 10 years on other sites. Here are our reviews that you can see from other guests:

A perfectly relaxing stay...
5 of 5
The garden by the sea is an absolutely beautiful and COZY home.

We loved the quiet setting in a woodsy area with a nice view of the Pacific. The wood burning stove that heats the house warmed the home perfectly and also contributed to an absolutely relaxing vibe. If you sit on the day bed in the living room for too long, you might be in for a nice snooze or an early night. Soaking in the wooden Japanese hot tub was both the perfect start and end to each day. The kitchen was well equipped and we were able to make some nice meals. The garden was full of fresh herbs which we used to enhance our home cooked dishes.

Downtown Mendocino was about a 5 minute drive from the home and Fort Bragg was only about 10 minutes drive in the other direction. Each town was charming and each had their own perks, but two of the three nights we were happy to stay in after day tripping in the area.

If you're looking for pure relaxation, this is the perfect spot. We really enjoyed our time and I could definitely picture visiting again in the future. We didn't meet the hosts, but Kim and Juan did a great job creating a very welcoming experience in their beautiful home.

Perfect week in artistic setting
5 of 5
We spent a week in this darling cottage and had a great girl's getaway. Such a beautiful setting, the hot tub was spectacular looking up at the stars at night. A romantic setting, a little rustic and made for disconnecting from the outside world- altogether charming. Would love to return!

A house full of art and spirit
5 of 5
The perfect getaway for us, to a house full of light in the foggy forest. We appreciated the well-equipped kitchen as we enjoy fixing our own meals most of the time. A soak in the tub was the perfect ending to days spent at the Headlands, nosing around the village or at the beach. We read, wrote, sat on the deck and watched the birds, or wandered through the flowering garden. Many thanks for the respite!

Great stay for 4 adults
5 of 5
My wife and I and another couple spent two nights at this property. The property was well maintained and included an edible garden with different types of vegetables and fruits - bonus! The inside was clean, spacious and included all of necessities. The wood barrel hot tub was a fun addition! We look forward to our return!
