We loved the apartment and especially the deck at night, under the moon with the hills outlined against the dark sky. We slept very well. So quiet! Great place.
Great space for two in PA
This is a compact but comfortable upstairs apartment at the end of a quiet street. It is walking distance from Main Street and has easy access to the Shoreline Highway (U.S. 1) north and south.
We cooked here at couple of nights in the small but efficient and well-stocked kitchen. There is a full size refrigerator and stove (electric).
The bathroom is well-appointed and well supplied. Nice shower with unusual but effective curved doors. The bed is comfortable. Internet access is good and reliable but certainly not screaming fast which may reflect the area not the apartment.
My only nitpick has to do with the placement of outlets. They are not convenient in either the bedroom or the living area. This, I believe, is a function of the converted upstairs space where the apartment was built and the way the electrical had to be done. Nevertheless, an extension cord or two (which I always carry) makes having your phone charger on the nightstand and computer use at the dining room table possible.
Overall, an excellent place to spend a few days on the Mendocino Coast. We'll stay there again. The owner, by the way, was extraordinarily accommodating for early check-in and booking an extra day.
Clean and comfortable
Really nice accommodations in the area. Super clean and very comfortable. The apartment is as described and met our expectations. The space is cozy, with the large deck providing more space. Great communication and super easy check in and out. Dinner at the Chowder House at the Arena Cove was very good. Saw whales spouting from the lighthouse point!
Point Arena Getaway
As a first time VRBO user, I found renting easy and all instructions were clear. The unit was as described, very clean with lots of light and equipped for a relaxing stay. It was close to places we visited, including the lighthouse and animal preserve. We were even able to buy fresh off the boat salmon.
My mom, sister and I recently stayed here and were very pleased with our experience at this property. The owner Tim was great about communicating with us. The property is pet friendly. We didn't end up bringing our dogs with us in the end but appreciate that feature.The kitchen is small and you will not feel secluded with a downstairs tenant, but the location can't be beat for exploring Point Arena. We were able to walk to the farmers market, dinner at a local restaurant (Bird), the local shops and coffee roastery. I would definitely stay here again.
Charming and quiet
Lovely little place that felt very private despite being part of a duplex. Well appointed, comfortable mattress (I’m picky about that!) and the owner was very responsive. The garden is one of the loveliest I’ve seen since childhood stats in my grandmothers cottage in the English countryside. Not a lot of excitement nearby if you are looking for a busy neighborhood, but the little port cafe/bar/restaurant was surprisingly good, beautiful cliff walks nearby, a historic lighthouse, and the slightly bigger town of Gualala with restaurants and shops about 15 mins away.
Point Arena is located on the rural, rugged coastline of Northern California's beautiful 'North Coast.'
Stay in the upstairs flat of this beautifully restored 'Farm Victorian' built prior to 1900. The restoration upgraded the interior to include all modern conveniences, yet maintained all of the original charm. The exterior was brought back to life, yet kept architecturally authentic to the era. We are located at the end of the street and look out upon a hillside and open woodland. Listen and you can hear the sounds of the creek hidden in the willows.
Walk two minutes to historic Main Street. Try Frannie's Cup and Saucer, a world class bakery, or dine at Uneda featuring fresh, local menus, wonderfully prepared. Catch live music or a movie at the 1930's Art Deco style theatre. Walk or drive the 1.4 miles down to Arena Cove, an active fishing hub; you can fish from the pier or dive for abalone in season (please check current fish and game regulations). Pizza up at Pizzas and Cream, chowder down at the Chowder House upstairs. Have a great cup of coffee or some of the best sandwiches anywhere at Cove Coffee.
Drive out to Point Arena Lighthouse and climb to the top; there are breath-taking views on a clear day. Or just cruise and sight-see along Highway One, known as one of the world's most beautiful drives. Check out Bowling Ball Beach south of Point Arena (minus tide only) and explore a truly unique geological anomaly. For great dining, St. Orres Restaurant is 15 minutes south of Point Arena. Try it, you'll like it. Ah, the North Coast, chill out or thrill out, either way enjoy your stay.
