One of the oldest homes in Mendocino with a path right to the beach. Designed for longer stays. Rented only once during a month.
Very peaceful and comfortable older 3 bedroom home. Perfect for that longer vacation in Mendocino. Rented only once per month. Older, but fully stocked kitchen. One of the few homes in the Village with a path directly to the beach. Find sea glass, driftwood or enjoy a picnic on the beach. Walk everywhere. Restaurants, shops, bookstore, go see a play or take a art class. Great for families or that quiet reading or writing or art project. Right across from a hot tub and massage spa. Relax on the deck. Have a glass of wine and watch the waves. At night enjoy the fireplace or a movie on the large flat screen tv. Peaceful views from every room.
Interaction with Guests
Very peaceful. Watch the ever changing river and ocean from the deck.
Everything within walking distance.
Other Things to Note
Awesome location. Walk anywhere- to the beach to town, to restaurants. RELAX!
No smoking in the home or on the deck. 150 year old home. Please no big groups due to old plumbing and water shortage. Enjoy the peace and quiet of this home with a lot of history. Check in 3 pm. Check out 11 am.
My wife and I had a great time. Location is absolutely perfect - private access to the beach and short walking distance to everything in town. Fun, clean, eclectic house that is a perfect match for Mendocino. We really enjoyed the fire pit, record player, and view from the back deck.
Also Gary was very responsive when we had an issue with the heater which was very likely user error.
Will definitely return
This house was really comfortable, spacious, and perfectly located right on Main St. We were able to walk to everything in town. Gary was a very gracious host. He provided us with all the information we needed in advance. The back of the house faces the ocean and there's a path to the beach as well as a huge back porch/deck. I look forward to staying here again in the future.
I've traveled extensively in Europe and in the Middle East and some within the continental US. I have to say my stay in Gary's incredible home provided me with the peace and serenity I've only experienced from a few places abroad. The home was so incredibly adorable. Like something out of a Hallmark movie. My girl friend stayed in the large bedroom upstairs and we immediately went nuts when we found his record player with its enormous collection of records. The Beatles were played first and we proceeded to unpack to 'Strawberry Fields'. I loved that every room downstairs had its own set of sliding doors to the deck. Then there's the yard with the trail leading to the beach. Those were my quiet moments where I could reflect on life and re-strategize my career and personal goals. I'd head down by 6am and at that time the glow of the sun was not yet quite clear. Both the beds were incredibly comfortable. We played music at night and danced in our PJ's before bedtime. The town and everything it had to offer was incredible but Gary's added to the experience. It was the private setting we needed.
House was just as described and we felt like we were staying with a relative. Location was perfect - very close to town and beach. Our dog loved the beach and the yard.
Beautiful home, beautiful location. We loved it and we will seek to come again. Clean, yet homey. At first blush, the place seems cluttered- and yet, everything fits. They home 's collectables and antiques are so fascinating that my wife and I spent the first twenty minutes just oohing and ahhing. The place was a well-needed haven of relaxation. The ocean is just out your back window!! 10/10, would come again.
We had a lovely time at Gary's cottage! Charming and filled with art, it's full of light and a cosy ambiance. Quick walk into town for a massage or meal, 5 minutes to the beach, dog friendly and very peaceful. Highly recommend.
We had a fabulous time at Gary's house in Mendocino! First off, the weather was unreal and the deck made for the perfect sunbathing and hanging out spot. The home was very clean and comfortable. The backyard is huge, which allowed my brother's dog much room to run around! The trail down to the beach is super accessible and easy. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.
This home is one of a kind. I will no doubt be coming back to Mendocino to spend another wonderful weekend in this home!
Gary is super helpful and very flexible. We arrived earlier than the designated check in time and he allowed us access into the home. He made things very easy and very enjoyable.

Love Mendocino, and would love to share one of the best places to visit with you.
This home is a special home. Lots of history, one of the few with a path straight to the beach. Great for long stays
