I live in Berkeley. I designed and built The Cetusaurus.

This space was amazing. Both its location and the physical layout.
Bert was kind enough to meet up a couple of days before, as I was already in California. We met for coffee and he thoroughly described everything from driving directions to the best places to see shooting stars.
I would highly recommend this space to anyone seeking to get a bit beyond the touristy areas of the NorCal coast.
What a fantastic experience from beginning to end. Bert was so accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. The Centaurus was an incredible home, and just what we had hope for. The view is spectacular, and you can hear the not too distant sound of the ocean at night. Bert gave us some hints about and tips as far as places to visit, sightseeing, etc.. He was spot on. We can't wait to visit again!
The Cetusaurus was wonderful. There were deer in the yard in the morning, and the evenings were so quiet you could hear the ocean. The house is unique and cozy. Our family had a great time. Thank you Bert!
The house was breathtaking and Bert was a wonderful host. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this unique home in a unique area.
Bert was a very helpful, and informative host. The house was absolutely beautiful and inspiring, with amazing views, in a very quiet, serene, neighborhood. All we could hear at night was the distant sound of the ocean.
This is a very special place. I drove up from the Bay Area for the weekend with my girlfriend and we absolutely loved it.
If you are looking for a getaway in the Mendocino coast area, this is a great option. The price is really reasonable, considering you are getting an entire home - nevermind the fact that this house is completely hand built by the owner.
It was winter but the house was very warm inside, even without using the heat. There are two fireplaces, one in the bedroom and one in the living room, which is nice. There is an indoor jacuzzi, which is a nice feature. I think I would have preferred an outdoor jacuzzi, given the drippy, foggy climate, but the indoor was still nice.
The house had everything we needed. If I went back I might consider doing more meals there, as the options are few and far in between. We arrived at one of the few restaurants for dinner at 8 pm and were told that we were too late - so if you're used to the Bay Area dining scene get ready for something different.
Overall amazing stay. Very relaxing and I would love to go back.
A great house, in a great locations! Good memories!
Bert was great and the house was amazing!!
The house was unbelievably, seeing photographs of Berton building this place from scratch made me so grateful to have the chance to stay in such a meaningful place. Berton was very communicative from beginning to end and our trip was truly magical!
Very beautiful, welcoming, calming home by the beach and away from all the hustle and bustle of the city life. The home had everything we needed for our stay and there were no issues with our arrival or departure.
