Excellent all around!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this cabin with our eight month old daughter. The cabin feels much bigger than the photos suggest - lovely wrap around deck (that is entirely wired in, with a latched gate at the stairs - so felt safe for kids), fully stocked with all the basics (cooking oil, condiments, etc...), great bath tub, comfy beds, even the art work on the walls is interesting and beautiful. Very clean. The grounds and surrounding neighborhood were very quiet - lots of birds, deer, and bunnies - nice to walk around. The beach was also amazing - having the gate pass to the private beach was convenient. The owner was very kind and communicative, followed up quickly to any questions I had. I would highly recommend this listing!

Beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed the house and surroundings ...could use a fan in the bedroom

I was shocked at the total expense .594.00 for two nights with a dog...make sure you check all fees.. extra cleaning fee ,dog fee ,VBRO fee tax fee etc....advertised for 147.00 a night , in reality it came out to 300.00 a night with a dog ....a total of $844.50 on the credit card... thank God my dog didn't scratch the floor and I received my 250.00 damage deposit ,although I haven't seen it refunded to my credit card yet .

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at Ocean Tree House. I know we already spoke on the phone, but I wanted to say again how sorry I am you were not aware of the additional expenses such as a cleaning and pet fee and a lodging tax. The fees are common with vacation rentals and are disclosed on the first page of the property under the per night fee. To help any future guests know where to find the cost breakdown, it is viewable when you click View details under the total cost. The cost breakdown is also included in the first payment request. I do hope this will help anyone not familiar with VRBO/Homeaway or with other vacation rentals.

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I were looking for a nice weekend getaway and this was the perfect place. The place was spacious, clean and stocked with everything needed for dining in. The owner was quick at communicating and very helpful with all questions that we had prior to our arrival.

The location was a great starting point for heading to Mendocino and Ft. Bragg. We enjoyed being nestled in with an amazing array of birds, bunnies, and deer. We recommend going horseback riding on Irish Beach through Ross Ranch if you get the chance, you will not be disappointed!

We would definitely book again! Thank you!

Definitely did not want to leave! Tanya thought of pretty much everything, down to beach chairs for Irish Beach and bird seed for the birds! It was a great way to explore the fabled Mendocino Coast, as Manchester seems pretty centrally located.

As is always the case in this kind of travel - do your research! There's not a lot in the way of fancy restaurants or that particular kind of experience, so luckily this place is well-appointed. There is a good market nearby, so we got supplies on the way, and had some tasty meals at "home" our whole stay. The dining area is warm and inviting for just that kind of thing.

Also, the outside deck is wonderfully set up for a small dog, and there was even a little toy. Very cute, our shih-tzu loved the place, and was very happy!

Tanya was easy to reach for the one little glitch, which was entirely my bad (I missed reading an email). She also checked in to make sure all was well (and because she wanted to give me an alternate contact since she was doing a bit of traveling herself).

All in all, wonderful place, well-done, in a great location. Definitely coming back!

Beautiful, comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our time at the Ocean Tree House. It was clean and comfortable and Tanya made sure all the amenities we would need were there. I loved that the cleaning supplies were all "green," and she has an amazing tea collection! My children loved feeding the birds and watching them every morning along with the deer, quail and bunnies that are around. The deck was perfect for taking in the beautiful surroundings and we spent every day on the beach which was just a short drive across the street. We'll always look back fondly on our time there!

Comfortable and tidy home for a Mendocino Coast vacation. An excellent deal!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable and tidy rental. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, pots, pans, plates, etc. Sometimes rentals don't have enough items for you to truly use the place as home base but we had no problem here. The beds and pillows were very comfortable -- not just the cheapest things just to get by. This was also the cleanest rental I've ever been in. Tanya was a fantastic host, checking in to make sure all was well and her house instructions are very thorough. The private beach was great and it is just a couple of minutes down the road. You really don't need to venture out very far -- everything you need for a great vacation is all right there. We still went to Point Arena to their amazing bakery (Franny's Cup & Saucer) and Schooner Gulch Beach. The kids had a lot of fun putting seed in Tanya's bird feeder and watching the Bluejays and Woodpeckers feasting. I highly recommend this place.
