We love properties that you can take your pets to and with this one you can! This little cottage is nestled in 2 acres (0.80 hectares) of land and is in both walking distance to the beach and a short drive the the national park. The second thing that we love about this property is the unique ‘tower’ that dominates the architecture, it really is like a fairytale. The open plan kitchen dining space is well equipped and compact, and the sofa folds out to be your bed for the evening.

Is it worth driving ten minutes away from Mendocino for a heart stopping ocean view? Well, for this property we think it is! Built from wrap around glass and stone this unique property offers sky high bay views as it is perched on top of a very steep cliff edge. This property lovingly encompasses natural materials that were washed up to shore such as driftwood and ancient ship anchors. The 2 bedroomed property each have queen sized beds which are perfect for relaxing in, and the huge stone fireplace in the property means that even in the depths of winter you won’t get cold.

Apparently this property called “The Nymph’s Reply” is named from the a poem by Sir Walter Raleigh and it certainly is poetic.
