Our comfortable one bedroom one bath guest house is very close to the village, with full kitchen, flat screen T.V. deck and wonderful view.
Newly decorated, spacious 650 sq ft guest house, with new flooring, seating, bedding, and T.V . It has one queen size bed so is suitable for two adults maximum.
Kitchen is roomy with dishes, silverware, microwave, toaster, coffee pot, electric kettle and gas stove. Wi Fi is available. Deck has a nice view of meadow in front and ocean about 1/4 mile away.
Interaction with Guests
We are here most of the time. We will be here for check in, and to answer any questions, otherwise we won't bother your peace and quiet.
We are located on 5 acres at the top of a hill on a quiet country lane, very close to the village.
Our lane comes off of highway 1 and is a short drive to Mendocino. No sidewalks, so we do not recommend walking to town.
Other Things to Note
Bicycle and Kayak rentals are available at Big River here in Mendocino. The Botanical Gardens in Fort Bragg are very nice and boats in the Noyo harbor are available for charter fishing and whale watching when the season is right. The Skunk train is also fun.
No smoking and no pets and no parties. 2 Adult maximum.
Check out at 11 am.
This very private guest house was the perfect get-away! Great view, super clean, large full-kitchen and Howard couldn't have been more responsive and accommodating.
Would love to stay here again when we're in the area.
Great place to stay. Amazing location and really nice house. Would recommend to anyone.
Wonderful house with amazing view. And the half bottle of wine, muffins, coffee and jam were delightful surprises as well. Highly recommended!
I didn't even run into Howard until halfway through my stay; it is easy to find the property and easy to gain access. When I did meet Howard he was nice and easy going. No intrusions and our place felt very private. There are multiple heaters to make the place cozy and everything needed to feel at home (i.e. stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, washer/dryer, tv with netflix, wifi, etc.). The place is only 5 minutes from downtown Mendocino where there is a great grocery store, and there is an amazing ocean view as shown in the photos.
Howard was a great host. He left clear instructions on how to get to the place. He greeted us when we arrived, left welcome notes, info about the area, wine and cheese, etc for us in the home for when we arrived. He texted us once a few days later to make sure everything was great, it was. Other then that he left us alone to enjoy our beautiful vacation. A+ all around.
My girlfriend and I spent two nights over Thanksgiving break at Serenity, and we had a wonderful time. The place was very clean, was pretty large (not much smaller than our San Francisco apartment), and really had all the comforts of home. It is less than a five minute drive to Mendocino and a ten minute or so drive to Fort Bragg. It was the perfect base for our visit to the area. Also, unlike some other Airbnbs I've stayed at before, check in was effortless, with no extra coordination required.
Howard's place is the perfect location for stopping into town for dinner and drinks and driving up and down the coast.
My wife Angela and I have lived here in Mendocino for 25 years. I am a retired building contractor and Angela is an artist. She loves to paint and specializes in Mendocino scenes and the ocean. We enjoy a walk around the headlands as often as possible and a kayak up the river.
