Just 3 1/2 miles south of Mendocino (and immediately south of Little River), Ocean Splendor is the finest vacation rental on the Mendocino Coast. Ocean Splendor is designed as the romantic getaway for two people... and only two!
You'll see in the accompanying pictures that this private, oceanfront home has a fantastic, impeccable ocean view from the setting just a few feet from the ocean bluff. And from the top of the bluff it drops down 200 feet to the dramatic, surging Pacific.

From the house, from the deck, from the hot tub... you'll feel like you're on top of the world!... and you will be. Ocean Splendor is wonderfully designed and beautifully decorated. Once you get to Ocean Splendor, you won't want to leave. It is very special.

There’s a large, beautiful master suite with a fireplace, a luxurious bath with...

The location/view is breathtaking and unique. The living room is comfortable with lots of windows and light. There are no screens in doors/windows and the manager claimed there is no need. We like fresh air and had to chase out flies and moths. The shades in the bedroom are flimsy paper like and there is a large skylight on the... more

Management response:

In the opening lines of the guest’s review, she echoes all of our reviews – “breathtaking and unique” … and these guests actually called us when they checked-in to say how wonderful everything was. But all of us who operate vacation rentals find out we can’t actually please everyone. Most of our guests are extremely happy with Ocean Splendor, but... more

This place is awesome. It is indeed an ocean splendor. Beautiful house and furnishings, breathtaking views, two fireplaces, four patios, one hot tub, comfortable bed and furniture. The kitchen is first class - top appliances and well supplied. Beautiful and secluded grounds. We saw deer. Don't need to bring anything to read - they have a large and varied library.... more

There is nothing I can possibly say that can describe the true "splendor" of this place and it's serene, spiritual beauty. If I could have my heaven here on Earth, it would be this. I had that heaven for three amazing days with my husband. We were lucky enough to have perfect weather, but any type of weather would be... more
