Relax Poolside at a Colorful Oasis with a Dreamy Desert Vibe

City ID#1837 Open the zesty yellow terrace doors and bring the outdoors in for a chilled breakfast at a vibrant, plant-filled hideaway. Hop on our bikes and take a leisurely tour through the neighborhood, then soak up the sun on a pool float with a homemade cocktail. Come to Palm Springs to experience the magic at the Dream Home!

Oceanfront Getaway on Mendocino Coast

Oceanfront cottage on the bluff-top with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and beautiful Mendocino Coast. We have our own tide pools! Great location - private yet convenient to downtown Fort Bragg. Only 5 miles from Mendocino. Sleep to rushing waves in our sunny & peaceful house. Wi-fi, full kitchen and all appliances. Renovated kitchen & bathroom. Amazing sunsets and great stargazing! Rates include all Mendocino County lodging taxes.

What guests are saying:

“The Tidepools house is perfect for a stay on the Mendocino Coast! Great location and amazing views from the patio deck. It was nice to wake up and enjoy the ocean view with a cup of cocoa. We could sit on the patio and watch a seagull family and their newly hatched babies on a distant rock. Our small family (2 adults, 1 child) had plenty of room to sprawl out and be comfortable. Nice big tv and comfy couch made for a fun family movie night. Trulee emailed and texted us local recommendations leading up to our visit, and took into account having our kid as well. All of the amenities were as described, and the house was very clean, comfortable, and well-kept. There were some ants in the kitchen when we arrived which made it hard to cook and there was some minor construction noise going on. All in all, it was a great experience and we definitely want to visit again!”

Water Tower Retreat

Water Tower Retreat

The Water Tower is tucked away and nestled among redwoods a few miles from the Pacific Ocean. This is a place to disconnect and reconnect with the surroundings. To unplug and decompress from busy life. About 5 miles from our town of Elk and a nice coastal drive 14 miles to the historic village of Mendocino. All bookings include 11% Mendocino bed tax. Our calendar is typically open 3 months in advance. If there are specific dates you are interested in, don’t hesitate to ask :)

What guests are saying:

“We planned our escape from the city around the availability of Rob & Elsa’s place, and we’re thrilled we did. It’s every bit as cozy and dreamy as the photos - perhaps even more so! Every last touch feels thoughtful and personalized. The space is beautiful - inside and out. And the rugged coast of Mendocino County feels like a hidden paradise. Be sure to hike down to the beach in Elk. We stayed for three nights - not nearly long enough! We’ve stayed in Airbnbs in Japan, Portugal, Cuba, Iceland, Estonia, Chile and lots of places in the U.S., and Rob and Elsa’s is among the very best.”
