About

Perched on the the bluffs of Mendocino Bay and directly facing Mendocino Village, Chapman Point House delivers a view that has been coveted by artists and sight-seers for decades straight to the comfort of your living room.

Built in 1963 by a professor of architecture, every room has a stunning ocean and Mendocino view. The house is framed with awe inspiring 150 year old hand cut giant redwood beams (reclaimed trestle) and the flooring is 3" thick maple from a San Francisco bowling alley. Modern furnishings combined with a beautiful Redwood slab dining table and bar help make the house warm and inviting. The combination of rustic and modern elements make this a truly unique and special place.

The main living area features a panoramic ocean view through which you'll be mesmerized by the ocean waves during the day and the twinkling lights of Mendocino at night. Stay in and cook in the fully equipped kitchen or sample some of the many fine restaurants in Mendocino.

Chapman Point is also directly adjacent to Spring Ranch Park, letting it's guests explore miles of beautiful headlands and meadows sprawling all the way to Van Damme Beach. Whale-watch, bird-watch, hike, go tide-pooling or picnicking for hours and it's just steps from your front door. To see all photos and details visit our website. Please note: Children under 10 yrs. not allowed due to close proximity to the bluffs.

We two professionals arrive at this sweet cottage and within 30 minutes we were asleep on the sofa. We fell asleep to the sound of wind in the trees and waves crashing against the shore. Heaven. By the end of the weekend, we were as relaxes as we'd been in ages. Such a special spot.

From the moment we entered Chapman House, we were in awe. It is so beautifully crafted, treasures and artwork all around. The ceiling hand hewn beams radiate out to the enormous windows framing the land and sea. We would highly recommend a stay here! There is also a cottage rental available on the property (the house is 2BR/2BA).

Enjoyed ten short days in this lovely interesting early use of recycled building materials in the spacious and very comfortable home. Our big thrill was the time spent watching the sea with each glance out the huge windows more beautiful than the last. One can truly say that view is better than anything you might ever see on TV...and the fireplace in the master bedroom makes me want to do a little remodel back at home. A wonderful, relaxing and delightful time in a perfect location!!!

The Chapman Point House was everything we hoped for... wonderful architecture, great views, 5 minutes (or less) from the town of Mendocino. We'd been to Mendocino years ago -- the Heritage House -- this was so much more fun. Great service, too. Eat at Luna!!!

Chapman Point House is an architectural dream. Loved the windows, the layout, the well-appointed kitchen. The view is simply lovely. The couple who joined us this time also were smitten with the home, the view, and of course, the quiet, peaceful village of Mendocino.

Beautiful location, however, the pellet stove was non-functional, making it cold in the living area. Otherwise it was great. I would ask the rental company to provide a single sheet with all information, including lockbox, that was buried in one of 4 emails received, and caused a bit of [panic when we initially arrived. A single sheet with ALL information would be extremely useful.

Manager's Response

Hello Susan, thank you for the feedback. Please know that if you ever have any issues at any of our properties, please know you can give us a call and we are happy to do what we can to get things fixed. In the case of the pellet stove, it was just a surge protector that had tripped. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and the cold living room. And thank you for sharing about the information regarding the check in process, we will take it into consideration. We are very happy you had a nice stay overall and thank you for being our valued guest.

This is the second time weve stayed at the Chapman house and it exceeded our expectations yet again! There is something very special about this place as its one of the only places were we can truly relax. Having a glass of wine or cooking in the kitchen with those breathtaking views is an experience Im so grateful to be a part of. Well be back again!

It was a very restful week in a beautiful home overlooking the town of Mendocino. The house was perched on the hill overlooking a lovely cove.
We enjoyed sunshine and rain. We could have stayed another week. I hope we are able to return soon.

This is a beautiful ocean view home with giant windows and tons of charm. The home itself was well-equipped and we really enjoyed our stay. I wish they had more than just a double bed in the guest bedroom, as it made for a difficult night's sleep, but otherwise the house was wonderful.

The house is simply stunning, the setting sublime. I have absolutely no complaints and only praise. The kitchen had all implements necessary to a week spent cooking -- we only ate in town once. The fireplace and pellet stove were both dreamy, the hot tub so tempting we used it until we had rashes from the chlorine. So many gorgeous walks all around, whales and seals, redwoods, and a kaprillion sand dollars. Oh, and friendly women selling fish and crabs off their boat. We'll be back just as soon as we can. Our only request -- two egg cups, please!

We rented the house for a few days in January to get some rest and do some local hiking. The house was perfect for the restful periods. Unfortunately it rained hard all 3 days and our hiking was very limited. Therefor we enjoyed sitting in the living room, listening to the rain and reading more than we had planned. The couches we very comfortable and the large TV was great to watch the Australian Open tennis. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking and the rooms were very clean. We really enjoyed sitting in the hot tub and looking out at the ocean (even in the rain). The Chapman Cottage shared the same driveway and is behind this house, so their views are limited. We were lucky that the cottage was vacant during our stay. We would definitely rent the house again. The agents were very helpful and kind.

We stayed at the Chapman House in early December for a short get away. The location, architectural features and amenities made it hard to leave. We loved early morning and late evening hots tubs, reading by the pellet stove at night and cooking in the well-appointed kitchen. Views of Mendocino and the beautiful Pacific Ocean from every window made every moment memorable.

We loved the house. Adequately stocked kitchen, great to have a washer and dryer. Quiet and peaceful. The bed was comfortable. The view was spectacular both night and day, enjoyed the wildlife, seals, birds and, at night, the lights from Mendocino across the bay. The yard and the house are so beautiful. We really enjoyed Chapman Point It was cold so didn't use the hot tub but we relished the view through the floor to ceiling windows.

Downside, the TV remote is very slow and selection is less than best. Not much problem since we were out and about a lot.

Thanks for the cozy and pleasant stay.

This was our third stay. Our only concern is loosing the view because the pine tree that is to the left in your picture is slowly causing the view of the white water and part of the town to disappear. The view is much less now than our first stay three years ago. That pine tree really needs pruning.Your picture is now somewhat decieving. Other than that, the place and the location is wonderful - jut fabulous.

Everything about this place was great! The hot tub was a little too hot and seemingly unable to be adjusted, but that could have most likely been remedied with a call to property management. The only thing we could have asked for would be that the overlook deck on the lower ridge be fixed so it could be used to take in the fantastic views. Overall the property and views are beautiful! We would return to enjoy this place again.

My husband and I decided to book this property for a long weekend to celebrate our anniversary. Both of our reactions when we walked into the home was wow!!!! The views from this property are unbelievable. The fact that there is an outdoor Jacuzzi that you could see the views from is just another cherry on top of the pie. The kitchen is very well-stocked and I was able to cook several meals with no problem. The location is in very near proximity to the town of Mendo and is centrally located for exploring in general. The only negative comment I have is that I wish we booked a longer stay. My husband and I will definitely be coming back to this property again. It's the most lovely VRBO we've rented to date.

This is an archaetectually interesting home on a bluff right on the water overlooking Mendocino. Great start. The property is very quiet and private and the owners have made improvements/replacements every year we have been coming here. The kitchen is great and you should plan to take many meals at home given the great views. we will return again and again...

Located just across the harbor from scenic downtown Mendocino this two bedroom satisfied our wish for views inside and out. A wall of windows greets you as you step into the house and the architectural design is very pleasing and contributes to a relaxing atmosphere. There is a deck closer to the edge of the overlook but it is closed for safety reasons. Hope it gets fixed soon. A big plus to the location is its easy access to a path that leads to the ocean and Van Damme State Park.

The home is immaculately maintained and well stocked with cooking items and all the basics. Beautiful home, beautiful view, attentive staff. Overall a wonderful experience. The bed in the 2nd bedroom is quite small - would have been nice to know that, as really more comfortable for one person.

The views are fantastic whether it is sunny or storming, day or night. The folks at Mendocino Preferred are always very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely recommend this home for a stay on the Mendocino coast.

We have stayed in many vacation rentals, but I cannot think of any that compare in comfort and beauty to Chapman Point House. To whomever designed the place: you managed to strike a balance in which I found myself alternating between deep relaxation and the thrill of living amongst gorgeous weathered wooden beams and stunning ocean views. Will you come design my home?
The rental company went the extra mile by purchasing and delivering a card table when we requested an extra work space. All around superb experience.

The views from this home were absolutely wonderful - the cove, the cliffs, the ocean and the town of Mendocino. If that weren't enough, our party was captivated by the architecture of this home. The large hand-hewn beams were stupendous! The floor to ceiling windows in the great room and multiple windows in all rooms, made it light and airy indoors and brought the land and water all around us inside, as well. The decking in the front and oceanside beckoned each time you looked at it. The amenities of this home were more than sufficient for our needs. We so recommend Chapman Point House.

We had the most amazing mini vacation at the Chapman house. The house is amazing and the views breathtaking. We had a couple of minor issues (with the DVD player and pellet stove) but the maintenance man was there within 15 minutes of our call, and had it all taken care of. He was great! The entire rental staff was so helpful, and friendly. Loved the hotub (and the jacuzzi tub), and was able to get lots of much needed relaxation. We cannot wait to go back!

The location was great the house was unique. I was very disappointed that with such a beautiful view that no one has bothered to clean the windows in what appears to be years - really ruined the view from inside the house. Also you need to do an in depth cleaning there are cobwebs everywhere. Only half the jets are functioning on the hot tub. Disappointed that we were not able to use the wood burning fireplace and were unable to get the wood pellet stove to work. The Queen Bed was horribly uncomfortable and to be honest there wasn't a comfortable piece of furniture in the house.

Manager's Response

We’re sorry that you had a negative experience with us. We aim to provide our guests with the most relaxing and pleasant stay possible and are very concerned when that isn’t the case. In your welcome letter we do ask that you contact us with any issues that you have and if we had received any indication as to your unhappiness with the property we would have worked diligently to remedy it during your stay. To address your particular points, it is standard practice to wash our windows prior to every arrival, however due to the immediate proximity of this property to the ocean, we can’t guarantee salt won’t build up quickly. We apologize for the cobwebs and will have our spa service man fix the jets in the hot tub. The fireplace is no longer operable unfortunately, but there are detailed instructions in the home’s binder for operating the pellet stove. We’re disappointed we couldn’t help make your stay better, please know we welcome and encourage our guests to come to us with any questions or problems if you decide to stay with us again in the future.

Loved the home and views. However, I would say the home needs a little TLC. Both fireplaces were not working, which was a downer for our romantic getaway. Also, the home had a horrible must/water smell. I'd strongly encourage the owners to get a dehumidifier to resolve odor problem. Lastly, I thought the living room furniture was not that comfortable. For the price per night of Chapman House, I'd expect a much more comfortable couch that can accommodate 4 people easily. Maybe even six, if you have friends visiting from the cottage. I mean that is what the living room in this home is all about. Kicking back and enjoying the amazing water view. Tough to fully appreciate from a small, slippery, dated leather couch. Overall, the home and setting are unmatched, but I do think the issues I mentioned need to be addressed for the premium price paid for this rental.

The bed was super comfy, the shower was great. Good central heating, beautiful kitchen and living room. The only thing i did not care for was the leather couch. Other than that, this house had me in tears, it was so breathtaking. I did not want to leave.

I reserved this house for a special week long celebration of my wife's 50th birthday. We had always said that we wanted to vacation in Mendocino sometime, but we couldn't figure out how to get away from work for a week. The big birthday was a perfect excuse to make time! When perusing the web for a place to stay I was attracted to its location on the cliffs and the architecture of the house. The comfy living/dining room allows you to look out at the ocean all day long. Wonderful! When it rains, it is especially cool as it pelts down on all the windows. The hot tub on the deck also provides views of the ocean. What really attracted me to this place was that it was dog friendly. Our dogs love going on trips with us and they are good travelers and house guests. Note: We never allowed our two Australian Shepherds on the ocean side (they could have easily jumped off the cliff to hurt themselves many feet below to the beach). However, the front yard was great and they sat on on the deck there a lot.. There are two dog parks in the area in town and Fort Bragg. By far, this was the MOST RELAXING VACATION I have ever had. By day 3, I was just spaghetti in terms of relaxation. The kitchen is well-equipped but of course, there are lots of wonderful restaurants to explore in the area so we didn't eat in that much. Wonderful pellet stove in the living room to turn on at night while you're watching the flat screen to keep you cuddly warm. It's February now and we went in November. I still think about this place weekly and wish I was back. Highly recommended! (Warning: It's a little tough to find the property your first time arriving there in the dark. Follow the instructions explicitly or you'll be knocking on someone else's door!)

If you want to be enveloped in scenic beauty then Chapman Point House should be your choice for a vacation rental! Not only is it close to the ocean (just feet away!) but its only a mile from "downtown"... The windows in this house offer amazing views -- from the guest bathroom to the master bedroom and everything in between... You will not regret your decision to stay here if you're looking to escape into nature.

Our stay was wonderful. The house and surrounding property was beautiful and serene. We sat in the living room one afternoon and watched a family of deer grazing on the hillside. Earlier that morning it was a pair of wild turkeys.

The kitchen is decently appointed and we picked up supplies in Mendocino and cooked a lovely dinner. The beds and furniture are all comfortable, and the wood burning (pellet) stove in the living room was comforting on the cold windy nights.

We will definitely be returning for another stay in the near future. We missed whale watching season this year, but plan to get back in time for it next year.

Still the great location we were wanting overlooking the bay. Being on the water is a must! We had 4 days of Mendocino Coast beauty, decompression and fun. The property was the perfect size, nice and clean too. If you cook in, suggest that you bring some of your favorite spices with you. If you don't mind a drive, head up to Pacific Star Winery, north of Ft. Bragg, you will not be disappointed with the location. Eating in the bar at Little River Inn is perfect not only for the food, but sunsets too. We will definitely use Mendo Preferred for future getways! Thanks much.

This was our second stay at the Chapman Point House. We stayed here last year and liked it so much we re booked for the same time period again. The house is ideally set up for two couples, with bedrooms on opposite sides of the house, and in between there is a kitchen/dining room/living room with high ceilings and a stunning view. The pictures do not do it justice. The kitchen has plenty of cooking equipment and if you want to go out for dinner etc. the house is only a couple of miles from Mendocino via the main highway. This time we also used the hot tub, which was fantastic with the full moon. We highly recommend this home and will stay again.
I should also say that the property managers could not have been more helpful and easy to deal with.

Upon entering the home we were taken by the amazing view. This soon changed as rain poured through the leaky windows causing condensation, rendering the view invisible. The house leaks from the windows and roof. All the window casings and beams in the living room are water stained and wet to the touch. The moldy stench in the Master Bedroom was unbearable. We slept in the Living Room the entire stay. Our guests pulled back the blanket and top sheet to retire the first night to find the bottom fitted sheet stained with fresh feces. ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING ! We would have left immediately had it not been for our out of state guests.
Extremely Disappointing. Such a amazing view with beautiful architectural features. The home is a mold infested health hazard.

It is a beautiful well appointed house on top of the bluff overlooking the town of Mendocino. The spacious kitchen and dining room became the focal point of our evenings as we chose to wine and dine at "home" rather than dining out.
We lucked out with the weather as well .. allowing us to go on hikes in the trails and walks on the beaches.
We have already spread the good word to our friends and family and will definitely be back ourselves.

Lovely house with a great view and an ideal location. We can't possibly be more positive about it. Perfect for two adult couples.

Outstanding property. Everything we expected.

My girlfriend and I have rented houses all over the state of California, but this was the kind of experience that makes us never want to rent a house ever again. Where to begin? Let's start with the foul, sewage stench that greeted us the moment we entered the house. And the rancid odor only got worse. It got so bad that it woke us up in the middle of the night, forcing us to retreat to the cramped Guest Room and place towels on the door crack. Imagine trying to have a relaxing dinner with a glass of wine while smelling rancid human sewage? But worst of all was the property manager who -- after his own plumber admitted there was a problem with the septic tank -- refused to refund our money, claiming a box of baking soda would fix everything. What a total crook. And no apology either. He treated us like troublemakers -- and acted like we were being divas because we asked him to find us another home. I would beware of Mendocino Preferred (Jim Hay) altogether -- they really treated us like ****. I've never had a conflict with any of the homeowners I've ever rented from - until this disaster... Bottom line: if you enjoy vacationing in an outhouse, this is the place for you. Otherwise, stay far, far away.

Great place for a relaxing get-away

Chapman point house is beautifully designed and nicely appointed. The design and siting of the house is ideal for enjoying the magnificent views of the water and Mendocino. The appliances, kitchen gear, furniture and art work were all very nice well suited to the house, making it easy to feel at home. The location was perfect for us as we wanted a quiet spot right on the water and didn't want to be right in town. I biked into Mendocino which was only about a mile away and there was a back route with little traffic most of the way. We look forward to returning.

A Perfect Week!

My husband and I spent a week at Chapman Point House and loved our time there. From hanging out on the deck overlooking one of the most beautiful views in Mendocino to cooking delicious dinners in a perfectly appointed kitchen, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Even though the home has wifi, we completely disconnected from our gazillion devices and walked away rejuvenated. We will certainly be back!

This is a beautiful, unique property that was clearly designed by someone who wanted to make an architectural statement. And they succeeded. It is a great place for a couple getting away. You could bring kids but you would need to watch them along the cliff.

Location to Little River Inn and Mendocino is great; furniture is not that comfortable. So five stars for location, two stars for furniture and four stars for other amenities = four stars overall.

We are torn between honesty and deception!

Our stay at Chapman Point House was most enjoyable. We enjoyed the views from every vantage point in the house. It was very comfortable, clean and well maintained. We enjoyed several of the restaurants in Mendocino and Fort Bragg. The local grocery was well stocked for any items we needed or wanted. I would recommend this location to anyone who wanted to visit.
