About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you for a wonderful three night stay at Pacific View Retreat! Your home is cozy, comfortable, impeccably clean, bright and beautifully decorated. The views out back are breathtaking! Half the fun in staying here is the quiet and splendor of nature unfolding before us- birds circling, little frogs staying warm by the hot tub, views of the ocean, without unwelcome wind, misty fog rolling over the hills- always changing sunrise over the mountain tops, brilliant star gazing at night!
Your kitchen and bathrooms were lovely and well equipped. We appreciated all the information on things to do in the area, and we loved the bottle of wine that welcomed out stay.
Thank you we hope to come again.

So close to Manchester Beach
Our relaxing four night stay at Pacific View
What I Like About Pacific View
The View -- As advertised, the wooded pastureland behind the house is beautiful, with cows usually dotting the landscape. The Coastal Range rises above the pasture and a creek valley winds down from there to the ocean.
The Hiking -- Going to the beach is delightful, along a path that is easy and not too far, through wooded grassland. Manchester Beach is terrific for beachcombing, especially if you enjoy odd shapes of driftwood. Sand dunes, a vibrant estuary and a great circular route for joggers/hikers/walkers makes for fine wandering for those so inclined. An old abandoned house along the path and the beach make for interesting perusing if you are into wondering "who used to live here."
The Quiet -- the house sits at the end of a cul-de-sac and the neighbors are quiet.
The Location -- While Manchester, California is a drive from the Central Valley, the location is perfect for visiting Mendocino and Fort Bragg to the north, or Sea Ranch to the south. Golf is available at Little River Inn to to the north and Sea Ranch to the south (Little River Inn is a 9-holer with challenging greens, Sea Ranch is my "Pebble Beach" of the North Coast). Excellent tide pooling is available near the Point Arena light house (small parking area on the left, just before the road turns to the right when the light house is in sight), where you can also see sea lions and seals and take in bird or whale watching. If you are into geocaching, the old cemeteries near here are popular hiding spots, as well as the many beaches lining the coast.
The Wineries -- The Anderson Valley has many worthy wineries. I like Navarro best, for their natural pest control practices. The white wines here are excellent, the reds also commendable. A complimentary bottle of Husch wine is also provided to renters. If you like beer, do not miss the Anderson Valley Brewing Company (which also has a great disc golf course on the grounds of the brewery), just outside Boonville on the road to Ukiah (about a thirty to forty-five minute drive from Pacific View, depending on your preferred speed).
The Drive -- I like driving, and touring the coast and through the redwoods along highway 128 en route to highway 1 is outstanding.
Cooking -- My wife enjoys cooking and the kitchen area is well-stocked with the necessary utensils and cookware.
We come twice a year and enjoy every trip.
