The rugged coastal village of Mendocino is in Northern California and is a perfect spot for holidays and hiking. The views across the Mendocino Bay are some of our favorite in Northern California and so we’ve handpicked the top ten Airbnbs that are either coastal properties or offer beautiful and clear sea-views. You’ll be spoilt for choice!
This laid back B&B is small enough to feel just like being in your own house. The rooms are well decorated and the price includes the price of breakfast. In peak season there is a 2 night minimum stay. A fantastic option to kick back and relax for a few days!

With a view of Caspar Bay, just 8 minutes from Mendocino, sits this quaint cottage in which you can rent a room. The large bedroom has a queen sized bed from which you can look down on the passing wildlife before making your way to the fully equipped kitchen for breakfast. There are two sun decks attached to the property and so these are the perfect spot to look out over the ocean view whilst you eat. Sometimes life is so simple.

This property is in a fantastic location, across the road from the State Park and within just a few minutes walking distance to the beach. As such, this private studio has entrancing ocean views perfect for enticing you outside in the summer. If you’re visiting in the winter fear not because the cozy wood stove can just as easily tempt you to stay inside for the day. There is a small kitchenette onsite, but you are close enough to the town to head test the local eateries.

We love this place because if you sit early morning on the decking you can listen to the seals! This property is a private apartment attached to the main house, there is a bedroom space and two seating zones. It is worth noting that there is only a small kitchen onsite which has a coffee maker, small refrigerator and cutting board. However you are only minutes away from the local restaurants and amenities.

For the last one on our list we’ve decided to throw in something a bit more unique, that is the District Water Tower! This converted water tower offers guests ocean views, and an ideal location. The tower is a self catering option with a fully equipped kitchen, a bedroom with queen-sized bed, and even WiFi. Just a short walk away is a market where you can pick up all your fresh fruit and vegetables.

Located just one street from the sea front, this beautiful cafe and inn has rooms with sea-views available to enjoy. A simple continental breakfast is available in the mornings, and we also strongly recommend making use of the onsite cafe. There are only three bedrooms, which are above the restaurant, so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
