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 live in San Francisco and we visit our second home in Albion, just south of Mendocino, as often as we can. 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!

This house is amazing. We have a group of girlfriends that get together every year for a trip, we have been doing this for about 15 years now. We ALL agreed that this is our favorite place/house. We will definitely be back. Thank you Britton for sharing your home with us!!!!!

Luxury Haven

  • 5 of 5

This house, with its view of the Navarro River as it meets the Pacific Ocean, is a marvelous retreat. Not only spacious and well maintained, but it has many amenities to enjoy.

A large living and dining area with a full kitchen is a start, with the living area fully accessible to the patio and its ocean vista through the accordion glass doors. With 4 bedrooms, sauna and hot tub, there is plenty of room to roam even for a larger group. It is also pet friendly and our two small dogs had as much fun as we did.

It is clean, comfortable and the hosts are very accommodating. A real haven to get away to, listen to the sound of the surf and relax!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five rented this place for the weekend. Just walking in the front door took our breath away. Pictures can not do this place justice. We were planning our next visit fifteen minutes after arriving. The beds are comfortable with nice plush linens. The kitchen is fully stocked, yes fully. Plenty of room for our family and the backyard is fenced which is nice peace of mind if you have littles. Our only regret is that we didn’t stay longer. One minor critique would be there’s only two bar stools when three could fit. This place is amazing. Next time we want to stay for a week, can’t wait to go back!

An idyllic stay in paradise on the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

The first thing we noticed about La Puerta del Mar is the VIEW! It's just gorgeous, and we spent many hours listening to the waves and watching the outlook change as a little fog crept in and then wafted away. We even saw a bald eagle fly by! Such a majestic sight to see. The house itself is amazingly well-equipped. I've stayed in a lot of vacation rentals, and I've never seen a kitchen that is this ready for cooking. There are lots of spices, condiments, coffee beans and a grinder, lots of pots and pans, and plenty of plates/glasses/coffee mugs, etc. We cooked on the gas bbq too. The hot tub and the sauna were so relaxing. At night we loved to soak in the hot tub under the stars. On a clear night the stars are incredible, with no light pollution interfering. Britton was really friendly and helpful when we had questions about restaurants, places to hike, and the best beaches to visit with our dog (Big River beach is great for the pup!). We love everything about this place and we hope to visit again in the future.

Magical

  • 5 of 5

Loved it here! If the views and the sound of the surf are not enough, the wonderful touches around the home really take it over the top. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped, beds are comfortable, the hot tub and sauna are amazing, and the dog amenities are great. Will definitely book a return visit.
