I understood this was not going to be a deluxe room at a glamorous resort. Funky was OK. But this was mind-boggling. After getting out of the car we immediately noticed workman repairing a cottage directly in front of us. One guy, taking a break, asked if we were staying there, then cautioned that "it would be noisy" until they... More

Shhhh, don't tell! We stayed at the West Cottage at Pt Cabrillo for a night and will plan on returning for a longer stay next time! Terry at the Mendocino Coastal Rental Agency was super helpful over the phone and terrific in person once we arrived in Mendocino. The cottage is a large one bedroom with a large bathroom. It...

I would never have thought of staying here, but my sister found this for me! We were coming to Mendocino for her wedding and because we had enough people to share the house, it was really quite reasonably priced, as well. It was very close to the Casper Community Center, where her wedding took place, and a very unique and... More

\We stayed for two nights and three days in the West cottage. I almost never give five stars but I do for this place. If you read the older reviews, you’ll hear about an innkeeper, but that was from 2007 - 2009. Now It is run by an excellent vacation rental company, so you pick up your keys in Mendocino.... More

Point Cabrillo Lightkeeper's House This large and comfortable home offers a great alternative to the standard vacation rental or BnB--particularly for a large family or several couples. Each of the four bedrooms has its own modern bath with shower. Books and new magazines everywhere. New flat screen television and stereo system are available with the multitudes of loaner DVDs--but who... More

We booked the West Cottage and had a delightful evening there. The cottages appear tiny from the outside but were actually very spacious inside. There was a fridge and microwave so we did not need to go into town for dinner or breakfast. We took both sunset and sunrise hikes and the views were spectacular. What a truly delightful place...

I booked the West Cottage for a romantic anniversary getaway for later this year. Although I haven't enjoyed my stay yet, I had such a great experience with Terry at the Mendocino Coast Reservations property management that I just had to post a compliment. She was very knowledgeable about the property and had a lot of good tips for a... More

An absolutely top notch place to stay, relax and enjoy all that nature on the North Coast of California has to offer. Great food, drink and shop-hopping in the town of Mendocino = art colony and wine mecca. Nearby walking trails and interesting beaches and a nice wreck dive is also available for the water hounds.

This is a truly unique location. Away from the town of Mendocino, in an isolated spot next to the lighthouse of Mendocino. Deer are walking around freely and at night it is just you, the lighthouse, the sea and the quietness. It is als a nice area to go for short walks or an early morning run. I would definitely... More
