The water tower is nestled among redwood trees a few miles from the Pacific Ocean and a nice coastal drive to the historic village of Mendocino. Very quiet and relaxing, most of what you hear will be the birds and wind blowing through the forest.

All bookings include 11% Mendocino County bed tax.

The space

before making a reservation.

The queen bed is located in the second-floor loft space. Steps to this space are more like a ladder (very steep) stairs and may be a problem for some individuals. Just remember to go up and down facing them... like a ladder :)

*The water tower seating is lower to the ground.
Please see pictures for reference.

The space is equipped with:
- Day bed seating
- Queen bed in 2nd floor lofted sleeping area
- Full bath with standing shower
- small kitchenette with a small gas stove burner, compact fridge, standard
utensils and dinnerware. We also offer coffee and tea.
-Books/games and a record player for music.

Peace and tranquility. A perfect haven to stay for a few days. Near to the ocean, the majestic Redwoods, and the charming town of Mendocino.

This location is divine, perhaps even religious. Breathing the air is like breathing life. Look up - you will actually see thousands of starts. Listen to the breeze as it makes its way through the redwoods. Feel the crisp air on your skin. The cabin is immaculate, with wonderful touches of home and an era gone by. Book this place. Go. Change.

My boyfriend and I had a great time at Rob & Elsa's charming forest retreat. Their attention to the small details in the space made our holiday feel very special. The water house loft was beautifully designed, very functional, and we could even see the bright starry sky from the bedroom window. Would highly recommend!

The Watertower was perfect getaway. Aisa and Rob have thought of everything. This private, stylish gem in the woods we remain on our 'to return' list. There are adorable notes throughout that help navigate. Loved this place!

rob & elsa's water tower loft was beyond what we could have imagined. the pictures of the home are beautiful but they actually don't do the space justice; the photos can't convey the serenity of the space, the music, the lighting, the smells of the home and its surroundings. if you're lucky enough to book the water tower, you will not want to leave. it's truly perfect.

Simply put, this place blew our minds. As artists and designers from Chicago my girlfriend & I were beyond impressed with how stylish and comfortable Rob & Elsa have made this beautiful loft. All the little touches were on point. Directions were simple and easy to navigate even without service and with us rolling in from a road trip super late at night. Inviting tunes were playing as we arrived. There was incense to light and relax with. The place was clean and cozy inside and out (comfy chairs and a hammock outside). Organic eggs and homemade bread and butter were in the fridge for breakfast. The place was super thoughtful and just what we needed for a beautiful stay along our road trip down the California coast. My only regret is not planning to stay longer.

VERY inspiring design and decor!!! It felt like living inside of ART designed by artists, so I felt immediately comfortable in the space. Rustic yet super chic and hip, using brilliant simple touches from the local landscape, so I felt far away yet not out of touch. Clearly artistic genius lives there. Loved the map and all the thoughtful details in the little house. Beautiful, everything. It smelled BLISSFUL when I walked in the door, with soft music playing, surrounded by trees... Luxurious extra fluffy towels & blankets. It was perfect for a solo trip to recharge my batteries, but would also be very relaxing for a couple who wants to unplug and experience each other without wifi. :) Everything you need is there, so no need to worry if you forgot to pack something. I hope to be back again and stay an extra day so I can get more reading done on the hammock! :) Thank you Rob & Elsa! Well done!
