About

Bluff House has two bedrooms, & two baths in the main house, plus an optional and wonderfully cozy cottage with a bathroom. The home is suitable for up to four people in the main house (plus two more if you add the cottage). It's the drama and magic of the ocean in this lovely setting on the northern edge of Mendocino, up close and personal with the ocean.
Inside, take advantage of the well-equipped kitchen and breakfast nook. Curl up by the gas fireplace and take in the sunset or a good movie on the large flat screen TV. Then rest easy in the comfortable bedrooms with king beds. Because of the cliff front location, there is a minimum age of 10 years and over required for any guests.

First, I can't say enough about the staff. They are warm, positive, responsive, and made us feel very welcomed.

From the moment we drove into the driveway of the property, this place took my breadth away. The views are incredible. The home has wonderful character and incredible views throughout. It's secluded and the house (and cottage) were very clean and comfortable. I just can't say enough about the quaint beauty of this property. There were many things that made our long weekend incredibly special. But the ambiance of this property truly can't be expressed in words! Of course we'll be back; however, we won't be telling our friends about this house. This goes on our "best kept secret places to go", list!!

Thank you Mendocino Properties!!! You truly are the best!!!

The home takes full advantage of the setting. Common area is oriented to the view. Huge windows allow everyone in the room to watch the waves. Perfect spot to watch sunsets. House has a great kitchen with everything you need for meals. We even made dinner and baked cookies. The property is clean and well maintained. We can't recommend it enough! Next time we have a special occasion to celebrate, this will be our first choice...can't wait to return!

The Bluff House is the perfect getaway when looking for a relaxing vacation on the Mendocino coast. The main house is it very good condition and the kitchen is upgraded and new. The view from the living room is breathtaking. You are perched right on the cliff overlooking the water. The lot is very large and there is plenty of space everywhere. The only thing to note is our dog could not go off leash in the yard because they can go under the fencing and the cliff is right there.

This was our second stay at the Bluff House, perched above the ocean with picture windows looking out onto a beautiful coastal view. Private, yet a ~15 minute walk into town or to the headlands, and an even shorter drive. Main house comfortably holds four and has a fully appointed kitchen, with room for another two people in the private cottage to the rear. The property management company is easy to work with: good communications and everything delivered as promised.

The views from the house and gazebo are spectacular. Very well stocked and clean. Great weather so we walked into Mendocino. Breakfast at Good Life Cafe/Bakery was beyond good. Great views from the deck at Flow, even saw some whales spouting! A visit to Silvers at the Marina in Ft.Bragg is a must and North Coast Brewing had the best chowder. Would definitely return.

Couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to stay with the family! The views were amazing, loved the gated property for our dog, and it was spacious for 5 people. Kitchen had everything you needed. It was cozy and warm and nicely appointed. We are definitely rebooking here again!

This cozy home has unobstructed ocean views from the main living areas. It was quiet and peaceful. It has a lovely large yard for the pups to run. I would recommend this home to anyone who wants to escape to the sound of ocean waves. We really enjoyed our stay and would like to thank the owners for opening their home for others to enjoy.

The house was beautiful; the views were fabulous and the proximity to the town was a plus. As we ate out, we didn't use the kitchen much but it had all the tools if you want to eat in. The only negative comment is that it wasn't made clear to us upon renting the home that the guest cottage was a separate charge; and therefore we did not have access to it. Since there were only three of us, it wasn't necessary. Also, the guest cottage is subject to hearing road noise from the street, which isn't the case with the home itself. Overall we had a wonderful time there.

Perfect in every way. Comfortable, clean home and cottage. Well-Equipped kitchen. Nice living area with panoramic view of the ocean. Directly overlooks a cove with boulders and waves crashing over them. I would be happy returning for a few weeks. Very close to town and many good restaurants and things to do nearby. Highly recommended.

This weekend was a gift in more ways than one. The house was very nice, very comfortable. The views from the house and property were outstanding. Although we took advantage of some of the sight seeing spots in the area and all the great restaurants that are near by, we spent most of our time in the house, or oustside in the gazebo. We never even used the hot tub. The practically 180 degree views were like eye candy and changed with the tides and the time of day. We returned home refreshed and relaxed.

This house is all about the location and view. The property is nice, but a little tired in areas. The moment you set your eyes on the view though, you don't care. Breathtaking.
I can't say enough about the Manager, Mendocino Preferred Vacation Rentals. They were totally on top of everything from beginning to end, so if this house is booked I would look at their other properties. It makes such a big difference to have a top notch manager when you're coordinating a trip like this. Kudos to them.

This was our 2nd stay at the Bluff House.
We have found the staff to be very accommodating. The house is warm and inviting and has every amenity one could need.
The best part is sitting in a fishbowl and looking out at the wonderous ocean in front of you. We also love the fact that we're so close to the quaint town of Mendocino. We will continue to return here.

Beautiful sea views, home thoughtfully equipped.
Centrally located with ease of reach to downtown Mendocino, state parks, etc.
Wish it had handicap handles in showers and not so many area rugs in house. (Trip hazards.)

We rented the Bluff house every Sept. for the last 4 years. This year we had family and friends join us for the weekend. Utilized the Cottage and the upstairs bedroom. Everyone had their space and the property was magnificent. We will return again next year.

This was our third time staying at this wonderful and perfectly located home in Mendocino. We come up from the Bay Area every year and love this town. The home has amazing views, and is a 10 min walk to Mendocino Village with shops and restaurants. Kitchen is supplied with everything one would need. The only "issue" I can voice is the sheets on the bed were a bit scratchy/pillee. Other than that, it's a winner and we'll be staying here from now on. Oh yeah, it's also Pet Friendly!!

Manager's Response

Thank you for the review! We're so glad you enjoyed the Bluff House. We just wanted to let you know that we brought up the sheets pilling with our housekeeping staff and will make sure you have nothing but the best bedding we have to offer in the future. We look forward to your staying with us again. Thank you again for the review and for being a valued guest.

My husband and I spent a few days at the Bluff House with our son and his wife who live in Sacramento. We're from Ohio, and hadn't seen them for a year and a half. It was just the perfect setting for re-connecting and relaxation. They stayed in the darling cottage and we stayed in the house. The views just can't be described - nothing short of unbelievable, and the house was so perfect - a little bit of elegance, but more just comfortable, beautifully decorated and homey. Our time there will never be forgotten. You get what you pay for - and this beautiful property is worth every penny!

Views!! Beautiful and close to town location! Beautifully appointed house & back cottage. The hot tub is perfectly positioned to watch the waves- we even saw whale spoutings! It was easy to add the cottage onto our reservation last minute too-great customer care. Would stay again in a heartbeat and recommend to friends/family. One drawback was the hefty house rule book with our duties listed as separating the trash and recycleables as well as taking the trash out to the dumpster ourselves.

We had a wonderful stay in Mendocino and loved the Bluff House. The views were spectacular. Only complaint is the fact that both bathrooms are downstairs and one of the bedrooms is upstairs. That necessitated us renting the cottage because doing the stairs in the middle of the night to use the restroom just wasn't an option for us. The cottage was adorable but had a pretty bad smell to it when we got there. Preferred Rentals did their best to make it right and I'm sure by now they've been able to permanently resolve the problem. Preferred Rental was a pleasure to deal with.

We would venture out for a few hours to Mendocino or Fort Bragg and finding ourselves just wanting to come back and relax at the house. The view and comfort of the house was better than we could find out and about.

We had another relaxing long weekend at the Bluff House. View is spectacular and accommodations very comfortable. We did notice on this stay that there were dead bugs and cobwebs throughout the house which we felt should have been cleaned prior to our arrival. More cleaning detail would've been appreciated especially for this type of property.

My husband and I have stayed in many rentals (domestic and international) and this is one of the best we have ever stayed in. The views and privacy are unparalleled yet it's minutes to town. Mendocino Preferred could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Because our booking was so last minute I called and asked which properties were available that week and together we decided Bluff House would be the best fit for us (with our dog and baby). They needed to book in their system the following day but all communications over phone and email made me feel confident that we would be well taken care of.

Instructions and arrival were easy. We arrived right before sunset and upon arrival the views took our breath away. They are actually wider than 180 degrees because the property is on its own cliff and whether you are out in the yard or in the house you feel like you are truly away from it all.

The house had a great setup for us, master downstairs, 2nd bedroom upstairs and apparently a third bedroom in the separate cottage. Kitchen was a very good size and laundry room and 2nd bathroom were a nice bonus. More than enough room for our little family but we are already thinking about coming back someday with another couple.

Unfortunately our pup injured her paw so the Rx for the week was to take it easy vs. exploring the beaches and hikes. But honestly there is not a better property to hang in and enjoy the rental itself. The fireplace was cozy and we spent the majority of our time in the living room, listened to music, took in the views and sounds of the waves. When we wanted some fresh air we went outside and enjoyed the various parts of the fully enclosed property. The night sky was dense with stars as we enjoyed the hottub.

Pics don't do the property justice - we look forward to the next stay.

The Bluff House exceeded expectations! The pictures do not even do justice to the views you have from the picture windows in the main house. The space is perfect, with all amenities you need. It's also very convenient to town (a short 10-15 minute walk) and to the Highway 1. Would definitely recommend and I can't wait to go back!

Bluff House is my favorite among several houses I have vacationed at in Mendocino. It is cozy, has all amenities, and best of all is right on the cliff above the ocean with great views in three directions plus the sound of the waves! I wholeheartedly recommend it for an individual or couple! Think twice, though, for two couples because the second bedroom is upstairs without a bathroom. (The second bath is small, downstairs off the laundry room.) It is livable but not the greatest experience.

We arrived later than we thought, the key was left in the offices lock box...perfect. Wonderful views from the living room, super close to town, yet away from it all. The people in Mendocino were friendly and if you bring your dog, almost every store in Mendocino and Fort Bragg is dog friendly.
The only problem we had was the hot tub was malfunctioning and way too hot. We contacted the management and it seems a part was ordered and on the way, just didn't get fixed while we were there. Not a huge deal with us, but it would have been nice to be able to use it.
We had a wonderful anniversary meal at Trillium restaurant, would recommend it for going to for a special dinner.
We will definitely be back!!!

This was our annual August getaway and fourth stay at the Bluff House. I'll start with the bad: The controls for the outdoor spa aren't working properly. You can't adjust the temperature - it's very HOT. Left the cover off in an attempt to cool it down but I think that just made the heater work harder. The house wasn't as clean as on our past visits. The kitchen needed a thorough cleaning (the stove top & cabinets were grimy), the bathroom showers are collecting mold at the bottom edges and the baseboards need cleaning. Every interior and exterior door was dirty around the knob area & adjacent jamb area. Pretty gross - I spent a good hour or two washing door knobs. My allergies acted up and I'm assuming the prior renters had a dog as there was white pet hair on the rug in the living room and in the dust pan when I swept the kitchen floor on day two of our stay. It was that or the sofa and loveseat are in need of cleaning.

Now the good: Sheets & towels were clean. They use a linen service now so you get fresh towels & linens (as opposed to "house" washed with over-perfumed laundry soap). The kitchen is well stocked with dishes and silverware and cooking items. The appliances are in good working order. The living room is VERY comfortable with ample seating and lighting. TV works great. The view is amazing. You are on a bluff overlooking the ocean. You don't see or hear any neighbors because this house is situated on it's own little "peninsula". It's a short walk to town. (There's no walking path so I wouldn't recommend it after dark.) The property management team is phenomenal. The provide a generous welcome package that includes fresh flowers, brandy with snifters, and a lovely bottle of white wine in the fridge.

Finding the perfect spot to celebrate a milestone year in Mendocino was not an easy task, but the Bluff House exceeded expectations. The ocean views, spacious, clean kitchen, comfortable beds made our stay memorable. The location of the house is ideal - quiet, private with exceptional ocean and sunset views. Our only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer. If you want a restful and relaxing get-away - the Bluff House is where it's at.

This home is just minutes (walking) from downtown Mendocino. The home is cozy and the view is breathtaking! Great kitchen and all the amenities you could ask for. This is our second time staying here. This will most likely be our go to place for our annual visit to Mendocino.

With the above said, my only negative comments are this-
-Someone needs to go in and do a thorough cleaning of EVERYTHING. Walls, doors, shelves, etc. They are very dirty
-Picture windows do need a cleaning. They were very dirty which sometimes distracts from the view.
-It doesn't seem like the place has had a handyman come by in years. Faucet handle on the sink was very loose. Bathroom towel racks were coming away from the wall. Lastly,
-The hot tub was absolutely gross. Looked very cloudy and dirty. I'm a hot tub owner and know that's not how hot tub water should look.

I reported the hot tub and loose faucet to the management office. They sent someone out to fix the faucet but he didn't have the proper tool to tighten. Not sure what happen with the hot tub since we never got in.

Manager's Response

Thank you very much for the review. First let us extend our apologies that everything wasn’t perfect for your stay. We are very happy that you were pleased with the home overall and have taken immediate steps to resolve the problems you mentioned. The kitchen faucet and towel rack have been repaired and the home thoroughly cleaned. We also had our hot tub serviceman come out to re-clean the hot tub during your stay, so we hope it wasn’t because of its initial appearance that you didn’t use it. We try vigilantly to maintain our homes, but they do require a lot of attention due to the nature of vacation rentals and we’d like to thank you again for bringing to our attention areas where we can make the home better. We look forward to your staying with us again and would like to assure you that your next visit will be clean, comfortable and worry-free. Thanks again from all of us at Mendocino Preferred.

We had a lovely time at Bluff House. The views were unbelievable - the photos don't do it justice. The house itself was very nice, clean, comfortable beds, furniture and extremely homey. the Jacuzzi under the stars was a treat. We loved sitting out on the deck or gazebo and enjoying some wine. We would do it again in a heartbeat! One update could be a new coffee maker, but other than that - perfection!

We have stayed in homes in Mendocino for many years. None had a better view than Bluff House which is right on the bluff. Even though close to HWY 1 there was no road noise. The sound of the ocean works like white noise & that is all you hear. Size of main house is great for 2 people. If there were 4 people, we would rent the cottage bedroom in addition. The upstairs bedroom in the main house is small & there is no bathroom on the second floor. The property was well maintained & the only thing less than perfect was the condition of the spa which needed attention. We will happily rent Bluff House again.

We've stayed in many lovely ocean settings, but views of the Mendocino Headlands, Agate Cove and the ocean from Bluff House are truly amazing! The cozy living room takes full advantage of the location, with a wall of windows providing a 180 degree ocean panorama. The site is very private yet close to town. We ended up staying in for dinner, except for a birthday celebration at Wild Fish, and loved the nicely appointed kitchen. The king size bed in the master suite was extremely comfortable. The gas fireplace and nice central heating provided plenty of warmth for the breezy, chilly weather. We will definitely be back!

Our 4oth wedding anniversary was coming up and I was looking for something extra special for my wife and myself. The "Bluff House" was the perfect choice!
It is one thing to see the pictures on the web, but quite a different experience to walk into the house and see the expansive view of the ocean and crashing waves right outside the windows!
No matter where you were in the house, there was a beautiful view of the ocean (and greenery); getting up in the morning and looking out the bedroom double-doors; or in the kitchen/dining room and of course the living room; all incredible views. It was almost like being on a cruise ship with a huge stateroom to enjoy; the best of both worlds!
The 1/2 acre around the house is beautiful and totally private; no one or houses any where near you; a wonderful retreat from our normally busy lives. It was an easy walk to the downtown areas of Mendocino, which included easy access to the grocery store, bakery and shops.
Hiking was especially fun for us; unlimited trails through beautiful country, waterfalls and lighthouses gave us plenty of time together out in the sun and mist. :)
The property is clean, fully furnished (including the kitchen), well maintained and the manager was quick to respond to any requests.
I would highly recommend this property to any one who loves beautiful views, relaxation and has a heart for exploration of the area. In some ways, we felt the over-all experience was as good as or better than being in Hawaii. :)

My family (husband, son and dog) stayed at Bluff House over the Columbus Day weekend and it was wonderful! The house is absolutely a delight--far enough from town to be "away from it all", yet close enough to access everything you'd want and need. The house was exceptionally clean, very well-appointed and cozy. The location is crazy-amazing--sitting right on the bluffs of the Pacific. Nothing was more peaceful than sitting there in the morning with coffee watching the waves crash as the fog lifted. And the nighttime views were just as spectacular with a glass of wine. The furnishings and bedding were super comfortable and the kitchen was perfect. We would go back in a heartbeat.

This is a magical house, our daughter was married here by the gazebo last year and we stayed here again about the same time this year.

What makes it so magical is the 180 view from the sofa in the living room, and the view itself! The Mendocino headlands on the left and a classic Mendocino coast view to the right.

There is really very little sign of other houses in the view as this house is maybe 10 feet from the bluff and everything else is behind you.

Its on a large lot and the hot tub is private. You can walk into downtown Mendocino in 12 minutes or drive in 2, when you really need to get more wine, champagne and comestibles from Mendozas/Harvest Market, or to go out for dinner, but the kitchen has a nice convection oven and gas stove and a kitchen layout that lets you still have the view while cooking, which I enjoy.

Its easy to spend the whole day on the sofa here.

We did for several!

We spent 3 nights at Bluff House in Mendocino and loved every minute. The house was right on the cliff, views that are breathtaking, gorgeous home and the sweetest guest cottage behind the house that we also rented, perfect for our group. The location was ideal, we walked into town and when we did venture out, the drive to everything we wanted to see was less than 15 minutes. I would return in a heartbeat but would add on another week to the trip! Everything was perfect.

We will most certainly return to Bluff House. It is so close to the village and yet so private. If the house were any closer to the cliffs, it would be in the ocean. Morning coffee on the Gazebo was delightful. The views from the Great Room are spectacular. The house is small but well appointed, immaculate and comfortable. The kitchen well stocked. The cottage was very charming. We appreciated the bottle of wine left for us and our guests appreciated the coffee left in the cottage for them. Our girls enjoyed the short walk to the village. Bluff House is a wonderful place to center a Mendocino stay.

There was a PG&E outage for an entire afternoon and the ladies at the management office kept us well informed of the power updates and even called in the evening to make sure our electricity had been restored. The only recommendations would be to provide a BBQ grill and screens on the windows which open. This home is great for sitting on the deck to watch the sunset with a nice glass of wine!!!

Don't mean to be too critical because we had a wonderful stay but those two things stood out. Just for your information.

We had a good time, even though it is a small place. The beds are comfortable, but the upstairs bedroom people have to go downstairs and through the kitchen to use the bathroom. That is a bit inconvenient. But the view is wonderful. There is some traffic noise since the house is so close to the road, but not too bad. It is beautiful here, and we found it restful. It seemed very clean except that the floor needed mopping. The couches were clean, but a bit saggy. Loved sitting outside in the adirondack chairs.

Before going into the positive aspects we noted to rental company of the kitchen needing some cleaning attention, no screens on the windows and no BBQ pit being somewhat annoying.
Otherwise the property is in a fabulous location and all the windows that overlook the Pacific provided us the chance to spot so many whales we lost count. The bedrooms were comfortable although the 2nd bedroom upstairs loft area is a trot to the downstairs second bathroom. The sun coming up and going down were a beautiful site from the comfort of the living room. Was a to little nippy in the evenings to sit outside but there was plenty of setting areas to enjoy the views from the front yard. Enjoying our coffee on the last morning we were there we saw a whale "breach" twice. Breath taking. House is very close to downtown Mendocino which is a wonderful town to wander in. Our favorite restaurant was Flow which we seemed to land at almost daily. We would recommend this property for its beauty and feeling of safety.

The only drawback was that it was unusually warm and when we opened the windows for air, the mosquitoes flew inand the dish tv wasn't very user friendly, even for our 20-somethings!

Great place, always enjoy our stay. However, would be better: 1. for those who stay a week, it would be nice if you had a supply of toilet paper, paper towels, and hand soap; 2. Some screens on the windows so you can enjoy the ocean breezes 3. replace those baking sheets; 4. A CD player that works.

This house has wonderful, one-hundred eighty degree views of the coastline. It is close to downtown Mendocino. It has a good-sized yard and is pet-friendly. There are a few negatives. The layout is inconvenient, particularly the lack of an upstairs bathroom and a TV that cannot be comfortably viewer from the seating set-up. The kitchen is not well-equipped, so if you like to cook, bring your favorite fry pan and some decent knives.

Wonderful long weekend at Bluff House. Could have stayed on the property the whole time and just watched the waves, tides and birds. Walking distance to Mendocino for coffee and shopping and the headlands for hiking. definitely will return - what a find!

I wouldn't have thought it possible to have such water views from a house - breathtaking! The furnishings and bedding was new and clean. The location was perfect. We have stayed at several places in Mendocino and our friends have been visiting there for 30 years. We all agree it's the best rental ever!

I have rented close to a dozen different properties up and down the North Coast over the past 15+ years, and this is one of the most impressive. The combination of proximity to the water and the convenience of being able to walk into town...supplemented by a dog-friendly yet well-appointed/maintained/decorated property make this a unique value proposition for people like me, who are looking for the serenity of a breathtaking view without the inefficiencies of an overly rustic situation.
