Mendocino/Albion Cliffside Cottage--Shangri-La

Shangri-La and Sea Cloud cottages on the Mendocino coast!
1 of 35Shangri-La and Sea Cloud cottages on the Mendocino coast!
Rental Home -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Albion, Mendocino County, California
Ideal for honeymoons or romantic breaks at any time of the year, Shangri-La is a true gem perched high on a bluff, with breath-taking panoramic views of the Pacific ocean. Couples can relax in their private cottage retreat—far off-the-beaten track; it’s a place to unwind, as you sit on the deck or take a soak in your hot tub. You can expect a quiet stay, with a cliffside view of the surf, soaring hawks, and migrating whales.

Although we are new to Trip Advisor, our cottage has been an attraction for over a decade, and has thrilled many guests over the years.

Here are some reviews:

'We have stayed in many Airbnb's over the past few years and this was without a doubt one of our favorite experiences. Genevieve and Jonathan are the ultimate hosts and they went above and beyond to ensure we had a nice stay.'

Interaction with guests
In our private parking area there is a 'doorbell' in what looks like a birdhouse. When you ring the bell, we will come down the driveway to welcome you to your cottage, and then it's all yours. If needed, we are available for suggestions and recommendations, and always around via email or mobile (we live nearby). Otherwise we won't bother you!

DRIVING DIRECTIONS ( we are about 3.5 hours north of San Francisco)

If you’re coming from the south, most people prefer taking 101 to Hwy 128 (exit for Ft. Bragg/Mendocino). It takes about 1.5 hours from Hwy. 101 to Hwy. 1 on the coast; it’s a windy road, but there are a few good places to stop in: Yorkville (good deli, wine-tasting, etc.), in Boonville (several places and a large grocery store), Philo, and Navarro, and vineyards/wineries throughout Anderson Valley.

At Hwy. 1, drive north three miles to Albion. At the sign for the Ledford House Restaurant, on your left, you can turn onto Spring Grove Rd. After you pass the restaurant, you’ll see the wooden door to Shangri-La, at 2961 Spring Grove Rd; opposite, is a driveway at 2960 Spring Grove Rd. Please pull in, up the rise, a...
