Overview

About the property

4 bedroom, 2 bath home with sweeping ocean views, hot tub, sauna, dog-friendly

Welcome to La Puerta del Mar, perched above the mouth of the Navarro River where it meets the Pacific Ocean.

On nearly two private acres just a few miles south of Mendocino, this spacious home is ideal for up to eight people traveling together, or for a romantic getaway just for two. Time slows down as you watch and listen to the waves, and after a soak in the six-person hot tub, you'll sleep like a baby. Or you can warm up in the Finnish wet/dry sauna -- yes, we have a sauna!

We have four real beds -- three king-size and one double in our cozy "library" room.

We'll set up both of the fireplaces -- one in the living room, one in the master bedroom -- for you, so all you'll have to do is light the kindling. We always keep extra firewood on hand, so you'll be all set for a fire inside or outside in the firepit.

For those who enjoy an indoor soak, the master bedroom has a huge tub by the window. Draw yourself a bubble bath and take in the views down the coast in the privacy of the master bedroom.

If you can't quite leave work behind or want to stream a movie or two, we've got super-fast internet service (no slow satellite internet for us). We have three televisions with DirecTV, one of which is a smart TV with access to Netflix, Pandora, and other apps, as well as a Bose sound bar for extra-clear audio.

Your four-legged friends are welcome at our house. Please let us know you're bringing your dog so we can put out some dog gear for you (dog beds, bowls, poop bags). All we ask is that you use our paw-print fleece blankets to cover the furniture if your pup is a couch surfer and clean up after your dog. The yard is fenced so your pets will have a big area to sniff around.

We love to cook, and we've aimed to stock our kitchen with everything you'd need to whip up dinner: a large set of Calphalon pots and pans, two food processors, a pizza stone, a slow cooker, baking pans, a nice selection of spices, olive oil, and several kinds of vinegar. If you like to BBQ, you'll love our four-burner Weber Genesis gas grill.

We take our coffee seriously, and we know it's likely you do, too, so we've got a brand-new Cuisinart drip coffee pot, a French press, an electric DeLonghi moka-style espresso machine, a burr grinder, and an Aerolatte milk frother.

For those traveling with little ones, we have a portable crib and kid-friendly dinnerware.

From your home away from home, you'll have easy access to Mendocino, beaches (Navarro Beach is less than five minutes away by car, with plenty of free parking), wineries, parks, and cute Northern California towns. It's also a great home base for families gathering for weddings at Cuffey's Cove. But really, it's OK just to relax, watch for whales and seals, and read a book. You'll go home rejuvenated, we promise.

Please note: Parking is outdoors. There is a flight of 28 stairs from the parking pads down to the home. Inside the house, there are two steps down to the living area and two steps back up to the dining area and kitchen.

About Britton Jackson

My husband Bryan and I split our time between San Francisco and our home in Albion, California, just south of Mendocino. Bryan is a lifelong Californian (save for a stint in Germany, courtesy of Uncle Sam), and I've lived all over -- California, New York, Alaska and Texas. Our hearts are in Northern California, where we love the scenery, the ocean, the climate, the people, the wineries and the food.

Britton Jackson purchased this house in 2017

Why Britton Jackson chose Albion

We bought our Albion home to enjoy all that Northern California has to offer, and to give our rescue mutts, Maddie and Bowie, a place to roam outside the city. We invite you to bring your pups with you. From La Puerta del Mar, you'll have access in less than 30 minutes to world-class wineries, jaw-dropping views of the ocean, shopping and restaurants, hiking, picnic areas, and beaches. Or, you can just relax, listen to the waves, have a glass of local wine, soak in the hot tub, and count innumerable stars as the sun goes down.

What makes this house unique

When it's time to relax, get away from it all, melt your cares away in the hot tub, enjoy a glass of wine from a nearby winery, grill some local fish, take a walk on the beach or just reconnect with family and friends, we're here for you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was absolutely stunning! The deck has an incredible view of the ocean (when it's not foggy) and surrounding cliffs--not to mention the very modern and clean hot tub. The house is very private and secluded, but a short drive to Albion, Little River, Russian Gulch State Park, Mendocino, and surrounding wineries off Highway 128. Britton was always available and was kind enough to check-in with us before and during our trip. I cannot recommend this house enough! Enjoy!

Beautiful home with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend here! The house was immaculate and was the perfect home away from home for our group of two couples plus one happy dog. We could tell that the hosts put a lot of thought in to the details, from kitchen supplies to firewood to linens and soaps . There was nothing that we needed. The only time we left the house was to go walk around Mendocino one afternoon, other than that there was no reason to leave. The fact that it is dog friendly with a huge fenced yard was an extra bonus for us, we love to take our pup with us when we travel. The only things you really need to bring are food and wine and a good book. The hosts were super responsive and friendly. We will return for sure!

Stunning views of the Pacific coast and mouth of the Navarro river!

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all! Location, views, and amenities! Just say yes to yourself and enjoy! We had our own spa stay with the sauna and soaking tub. Sitting in the hot tub listening to the waves crash and the cold rain pelting your skin, YES! Well stocked home, comfortable sleeping arrangements, views out almost every window, I can’t say enough.

We enjoyed our stay immensely. The house was very accommodating for the six of us. The kitchen was really well equipped which suited us perfectly. We all would return again!

The photos and description tell it all! This home is the perfect spot to enjoy a beautiful area.

  • 5 of 5

Britton invites you into her home as if you are a dear friend and communication with her was spot on. The views are mesmerizing and the home is so comfortable and clean. It is the best outfitted kitchen I've ever experienced in a rental!! Firewood, coffee, kitchen staples and nice toiletries are all provided. The checkout was fast and easy making it feel like we were more guest than renter. I will definitely return to this wonderful home!! Thank you Britton!

Secluded getaway with a million dollar view

  • 5 of 5

What an absolute treat it was to stay here. The view alone made the entire trip worth it. The property is very secluded with lots of privacy. Plus, it's dog-friendly!

The house is laid out very nicely—great for cooking and entertaining, and the kitchen was fully equipped! The living room and dining room open up to the back patio with a STUNNING view of the ocean. The hot tub is out there as well. Don't forget the Champagne.

The house is only a few minutes away from the beach down below (easiest by car). Great for hiking and exploring with the dogs.

If you're looking for a serene, relaxing getaway with a million dollar view, you won't regret staying here!
