    The SpaceLocated on the beautiful Northern California coast between the historic town of Mendocino (30 miles/48 km North) and the artist community of Gualala (20 miles/32 km South), this extraordinary 2-bath, 3-bedroom retreat -- all on one level – features incredible Pacific Ocean views from virtually every room. See Point Arena Light House, open meadows filled with wildlife, and magical sunsets. Built by a well-known artist, the home features multiple pieces of his original artwork below cathedral ceilings. Bring food and drink to create a special recipe in the well-equipped kitchen which features new appliances, including a refrigerator, microwave, and range with a convection oven. Enjoy a meal in the adjoining dining area with an ocean view. We are in a fairly remote, rural area so plan on some driving if you want to eat out. The closest restaurants are in Elk (7 miles North) or Pt. Arena (8 miles South). The master and second bedrooms are in separate wings of the house, ensuring privacy whenever you want it. The master opens to a deck with ocean views, has a Cal King bed, a reading area, and ample closet space. The expansive master bath offers a huge two-person all tile shower. The second bedroom has ocean views, a king bed (can be configured as twins), many shelves of books, and a large closet. The second bathroom is next door and features a deep infinity tub/shower with fantastic ocean views. A third bedroom/office has a queen futon, a desk & printer, and a full wall of closet space. We welcome children, but the home is not childproofed and some original artwork features tasteful female nudes. The large, comfortable living room overlooks the ocean, has mid-century modern furniture, an electric fireplace (easily removed if you prefer wood or pressed logs), board games, and a flat screen TV with Netflix and Amazon Prime shows & movies available to easily stream (just press a button) via fast, unlimited internet. An HDMI cable is provided so you can connect to your computer. There is no "regular" television service. Take an easy drive up the coast to Mendocino and Fort Bragg or south to the Point Arena light house. Enjoy the sounds of breaking waves, see migrating whales, walk or drive to the private 8-mile beach or Pomo Lake, visit Anderson Valley wineries, sample fare at remarkable restaurants & bakeries. Or do nothing...just relax. Forget something? No worries! A well-stocked grocery store is located in Manchester, 4 miles/6.5 km south. Want a little excitement? Visit the casino/restaurant, tour the lighthouse, or take in a movie in the town of Point Arena, 8 miles/13 km south. Come visit, we'd love to hear from you! Guest AccessGuests have access to all areas of the house, deck, and garage with the exception of two locked storage areas. Interaction with GuestsI touch base with guests by email, text or phone several days prior to arrival to answer questions, provide additional information on the house, and see if they have any special requests. I like to be at the home to greet guests if possible, but head home after getting everyone settled. The NeighborhoodThe area features spectacular ocean views, amazing flora and fauna (whales, hummingbirds, deer, quail...), beautiful sunsets, a private gated beach, and multiple hiking trails. We are in a fairly remote, rural location: the closest restaurants are in Elk (7 miles North) or Pt. Arena (8 miles South). If eating out or lots of nightlife is what you're after, this is not the spot for you. Getting AroundThere is a bus line which runs very infrequently: a car is required. One garage space is provided, but there is ample space on the driveway for extra cars. Other Things to NoteA county-mandated 11% tax based on accommodation cost only is collected separately the day after arrival Children 5 and over are counted as guests

    The SpaceAn unusual house, an architectural marvel on the Mendocino Coast. While the pictures don't do the house justice, they do convey its uniqueness, tranquility and the seaside beauty of the surrounding area. There are ocean views from the living room, kitchen and master bedroom. The house is cozy and spacious with fireplaces in both the master bedroom and living room. There is radiant heat, hot water circulating under the tile floors, throughout. Interaction with GuestsI generally try to meet with them before they go to the house to give them a key, directions and some details about the use of the house. If that proves unworkable, I mail the key and discuss use of the house on the phone. The NeighborhoodIt is quiet, peaceful and the ocean views are tremendously calming. Other Things to NoteI prefer to restrict one night stays to Sunday through Thursday nights to keep the more sought after Friday/Saturday combination available.

There's a wonderful, sandy, private beach that runs for about two miles. It's a 15-18 minute walk to the sand, or a 3 minute drive, using a magnetic gate card to go past a gated barrier. The house looks across a fifteen acre meadow to the sea. There are ocean views from everywhere in the house - you can see and hear the water from laying in bed in the master bedroom. There's a fireplace in the master bedroom, and also a TV-DVD/VCR for movie showing (but no TV reception) with a collection of 360 well chosen movies (I chose them). There's a Jacuzzied tub for two in the master bathroom. There's a fireplace in the living room, and a futon couch that opens into a comfortable full size bed. There's a second bedroom/den/office two steps up off the living room and open to it with a Full size bed, desk and chair and a chair and ottoman. There's a half bath off the living room, so if two couples go up, or a couple with children, they don't have to share a bathroom at night. The den/office also functions nicely as a writers' and artists' retreat, and has been the starting point - and midway jump start - for two published novels and three published non-fiction works, and a book of photographs. There are also two fold-out mats that accommodate another two sleepers, and since the house is tiled throughout and has radiant heat (hot water under the floor tile), sleeping close to the floor on the mats is very comfortable. There's also a chair and ottoman for reading, that also opens up to a single futon bed. There's a stereo that plays CD's. The house is set up so that you can just walk in and occupy. There's dishware, cookware, and I supply linens. Some people want to bring their own, but you'll find the bed made up with fresh sheets and fresh towels available. I ask that you keep the house clean, leave it clean, and wash and dry and put away the linens and dishes that you've used. There is laundry and dishwasher soap there. There's a patio in the front with great ocean views and some patio furniture. There is another patio in the back, completely private from the street. The front patio is also private because the street is remote enough, and there is almost no one around. There are no houses on either side, in back or directly in front. The nearest house is about 300 feet. But the real miracle is the house itself. It's a series of curves. The ceiling, in cross-section, is a softened bell shape; the centerline, if there really were one, would be like a long slow backwards 'S'; and the exterior shape is curved too. It has an amazingly compelling and satisfying feel to it. It seems to resonate with people, and they feel at home, as though it were their house at the sea, not a stranger's place. There's a large well stocked supermarket in Manchester, S&B;, five miles south of the house. And ten miles south, in Point Arena, there is a very good restaurant and a movie theatre. The Arena Cove Bar and Grill has good food and is very reasonably priced. Seven miles north in Elk, the Greenwood Pier Cafe has been highly recommended; and of course, 25 miles north, in the town of Mendocino, there are several very good restaurants. Also, please note: I restrict one night stays to Sunday through Thursday nights to keep the more sought after Friday/Saturday combination available. There is a flat 11% Mendocino County tax; there is a flat housekeeper's fee of $85 for all stays. Also note: The Den/Second Bedroom is open to the living room. See pictures. If you want to bring a dog, and I agree to it in advance, there is a $25 fee. The house is on California's scenic Mendocino Coast, half way between the Village of Mendocino and Gualala, at the Northern end of Sea Ranch.

              Our custom-built home is perched on a bluff at the northern end of Manchester State Beach. Conde Nast named Manchester as one of the ten best beaches in California. The six-mile beach offers fascinating tide pools and the finest surf fishing on the north coast. A massive jumble of driftwood logs line the base of the cliffs creating a natural playground for kids. Our home offers dramatic white water views and the ideal spot for eavesdropping on the coastal wildlife. Ospreys and red-tailed hawks soar by at eye level as they ride the wind currents at the bluff's edge. Whales veer extremely close to shore here during migration and, in the early winter, tundra swans stop off for a breather while heading south. Deer are plentiful and visit our property to graze every evening. The house has open-beamed pine ceilings throughout, and an ocean view from all but one room. A large deck and hot tub overlook the crashing surf. The master bedroom has a queen-size pine canopy bed with memory foam mattress and down comforter, a window seat overlooking the surf and a custom-tiled bathroom with a country French 12-inch shower-head. The second bedroom has a king size bed decorated with a patchwork quilt. A queen size sofa bed is available in the great room. The spacious pine kitchen is modern and fully-equipped. The separate living room boasts spectacular views, a long window seat and cozy fireplace. We also provide a small library of books and games.

                  You will love staying at this serene beach house with spectacular views of the ocean, amazing sunsets, a fully-equipped kitchen -- including a new range, refrigerator & microwave -- and access to a gated private beach with level parking! The home is new to this site but we are experienced hosts. I'll happily provide multiple reviews from recent guests with their contact information so you can be sure what you're getting. Located on the beautiful Northern California coast between the historic town of Mendocino (30 miles/48 km North) and the artist community of Gualala (20 miles/32 km South), this extraordinary 2-bath, 3-bedroom retreat -- all on one level – allows you to experience incredible Pacific Ocean views from virtually every room. See Point Arena Light House, open meadows filled with wildlife, and magical sunsets. Designed by a well-known artist, the home features multiple pieces of his original artwork below cathedral ceilings. Bring food and drink to create a special recipe in the well-equipped kitchen which features new appliances, including a refrigerator, microwave, and range with a convection oven. Enjoy a meal in the adjoining dining area with an ocean view. The master and second bedrooms are in separate wings of the house, ensuring privacy whenever you want it. The master opens to a deck with ocean views, has a king bed, a reading area, and ample closet space. The expansive master bath offers a huge two-person all tile shower. A second bedroom has ocean views, a king bed (can be configured as two twins), many shelves of books, and a large closet. The second bathroom is next door and features a deep infinity tub/shower with fantastic ocean views. A third bedroom/office has a queen futon, a desk & printer, and a full wall of closet space. We welcome children, but the home is not childproofed and some original artwork features tasteful female nudes. The large, comfortable living room overlooks the ocean, has mid-century modern furniture, a wood-burning fireplace, board games, and CD/DVD player. There is no standard television service but we do offer Netflix and Amazon Prime TV. You're welcome to bring your own DVDs or select from our library. Take an easy drive up the coast to Mendocino and Fort Bragg or south to the Point Arena light house. Enjoy the sounds of breaking waves, see migrating whales, walk or drive to the private 8-mile beach or Pomo Lake, visit Anderson Valley wineries, sample fare at remarkable restaurants & bakeries. Or do nothing...just relax. Forget something? No worries! A well-stocked grocery store is located in Manchester, 4 miles/6.5 km south. Want a little excitement? Visit the casino/restaurant, tour the lighthouse, or take in a movie in the town of Point Arena, 8 miles/13 km south. Come visit, we'd love to hear from you! A few notes: Guests have access to all areas of the house, deck, and garage with the exception of two locked storage areas. I touch base with guests by email, text or phone several days prior to arrival to answer questions, provide additional information on the house, and see if they have any special requests. I like to be at the home to greet guests if at all possible, but I head home after getting everyone settled.

                    Getaway to Irish Beach The Cetusaurus at Irish Beach is an unusual house, an architectural marvel, on the Mendocino Coast. It's 140 miles from the San Francisco Bay Area. There's a wonderful, sandy, private beach that runs for about two miles. It's a 15-18 minute walk to the sand, or a 3 minute drive, using a magnetic gate card to go past a gated barrier. The house looks across a fifteen acre meadow to the sea. There are ocean views from everywhere in the house - you can see and hear the water from laying in bed in the master bedroom. There's a fireplace in the master bedroom, and also a TV-DVD/VCR for movie showing (but no TV reception) with a collection of 360 well chosen movies (I chose them). There's a Jacuzzied tub for two in the master bathroom. There's a fireplace in the living room, and a futon couch that opens into a comfortable full size bed. There's a second bedroom/den/office two steps up off the living room and open to it with a Full size bed, desk and chair and a chair and ottoman. There's a half bath off the living room, so if two couples go up, or a couple with children, they don't have to share a bathroom at night. The den/office also functions nicely as a writers' and artists' retreat, and has been the starting point - and midway jump start - for two published novels and three published non-fiction works, and a book of photographs. There are also two fold-out mats that accommodate another two sleepers, and since the house is tiled throughout and has radiant heat (hot water under the floor tile), sleeping close to the floor on the mats is very comfortable. There's also a chair and ottoman for reading, that also opens up to a single futon bed. There's a stereo that plays CD's. The house is set up so that you can just walk in and occupy. There's dishware, cookware, and I supply linens. Some people want to bring their own, but you'll find the bed made up with fresh sheets and fresh towels available. I ask that you keep the house clean, leave it clean, and wash and dry and put away the linens and dishes that you've used. There is laundry and dishwasher soap there. There's a patio in the front with great ocean views and some patio furniture. There is another patio in the back, completely private from the street. The front patio is also private because the street is remote enough, and there is almost no one around. There are no houses on either side, in back or directly in front. The nearest house is about 300 feet. But the real miracle is the house itself. It's a series of curves. The ceiling, in cross-section, is a softened bell shape; the centerline, if there really were one, would be like a long slow backwards 'S'; and the exterior shape is curved too. It has an amazingly compelling and satisfying feel to it. It seems to resonate with people, and they feel at home, as though it were their house at the sea, not a stranger's place. There's a large well stocked supermarket in Manchester, S&B, five miles south of the house. And ten miles south, in Point Arena, there is a very good restaurant and a movie theatre. The Arena Cove Bar and Grill has good food and is very reasonably priced. Seven miles north in Elk, the Greenwood Pier Cafe has been highly recommended; and of course, 25 miles north, in the town of Mendocino, there are several very good restaurants. Also, please note: I restrict one night stays to Sunday through Thursday nights to keep the more sought after Friday/Saturday combination available.

                    The SpaceAs mentioned, we have two loud roosters that tend to compete with each other sometimes as early as 7:00 am. Our 1/2 mile dirt road is quite rough, so extra caution is required in observing and avoiding the larger rocks. Guest AccessUnfortunately, we don't offer kitchen privileges at this time. However, there is a small refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and a hot water kettle in the room for your convenience. The second floor has an additional room which is private. Interaction with GuestsThere are three of us living on the premises, so someone is always available to assist with anything guests might need. The NeighborhoodWe are a ten minute drive from the beach and twenty minutes from Point Arena. There is a small general store ten minutes away on Hwy 1. They are open 8:00 am to 7:00 pm daily. There are a few restaurants in Point Arena. Other than that, we are at least an hour from just about everything else so come prepared! Other Things to NoteOur house is a corrugated steel structure to minimize damage in the event of wildfires. It is only accessible by a mile long rocky dirt road. Four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive is recommended but not necessary. Compact cars with normal wheel base clearance should make it as long as you pay extra attention to the larger rocks to avoid them.
