Guestbook comments from the owner

For thirteen years Mendocino has become one of our favorite destinations. And, after these last two days at your wonderful retreat, it has become even more alluring. This room, with every comfort of home, spectacular views, the song of the sea and yummy baked goods was perfect. Mr. Osprey has made three landings outside our window this morning. He preens for awhile before taking off for another foray – ah, what a life.B & K – Modesto, CA

Ocean view best ever

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had never enjoyed such a fabulous experience by the beach as we did at Abalone Arch. Words cannot truly describe the incredible ocean view and the sensational feeling of being so close to the water front. This is the place to be for a breathtaking seascape resort. Thank you Wendy and Dave for your hospitality. We loved it!

4-Day stay review

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had been searching for a place like this for years while traveling elsewhere, both nationally and internationally. There are many options, but when narrowing our selection to the Mendocino Coast area, this property clearly stood out and at the top of the charts regarding our main goal - a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean! Not only does this very private suite afford one the most spectacular view, Abalone Arch essentially places one nearly on the edge of a very secure coastal rock formation footing, where everything that happens, happens directly in front of where one sits while reading (either inside or outside), or where one showers (again, either inside or outside). The owners are exceptional as well - they simply and cordially greet you, followed by an overview of the suite, as well as an introduction to the tremendous wealth of information assembled for reading and discovery planning for your stay in the area, which includes the various coastal communities, beaches, state parks, restaurants, food and beverage stores and shops, wineries, the coastal botanical garden only a few minutes north, etc....
We were genuinely and most pleasantly surprised to find so many amenities inside and outside - we cannot even think of what else (within reason) one would ever expect beyond all that is readily available. The bed is a very nice king and bedding is top drawer and so comfortable. The bathroom and shower inside are perfect with fine towels, robes, etc.. Oh and the OUTSIDE shower is a must! The view from the bed makes it extremely difficult to move each morning - so beautiful with the waves crashing against the rocks below and the cool air flowing through the windows. My wife is an avid reader and she could have stayed four days in a chair just reading and reading. When we returned home, we missed (and still do) the sounds of the sea!
Having owned a beach front condominium in Destin, Florida for nearly 1 1/2 decades and having also rented it out for large blocks of time each year creates an easy comparison - we had ocean view and sea sounds, BUT even being a much larger and fully equipped unit, nicely furnished, it was not as magnificent as Abalone Arch - clearly a unique find and a destination for as long as we can find the time to revisit. We know of nothing that gives one continuous Ahhhh moments from the time you enter the gate until you depart!
Without hesitation we strongly recommend this incredible retreat!

Spa Quality Suite on Breathtaking Coast

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Abalone Arch July 29-August 5, 2014. All the reviews are true – this is an exquisite suite directly on the coast a couple short miles north of the wonderful town of Mendocino. The pictures, regardless how lovely, cannot possible represent how breathtaking this property truly is.
The suite is utterly top-notch with King sized bed, wall to wall carpet, floor to ceiling windows, gas fireplace, kitchenette with designer dishes, modern spacious bathroom with huge shower, also an outdoor (hot) shower, an eating area on patio or deck and small propane grill for your use. The suite is stocked with spa quality bathroom/shower supplies, robes, linens, towels; and the kitchenette is stocked with homemade delicious granola and cookies, and wine to welcome you!
The suite is absolutely private – an attractive wooden gate separates you from the world on one side and the ocean crashes below you on the other side. Wildlife, such as many birds, including darling hummingbirds, seals, and even whales in the right season, are frequently seen from the window, deck, or nearby walk.
There are loads of beautiful activities, beaches, hikes, Redwoods, boating, theater, fine restaurants, impressive galleries (!), wildlife, National Parks, fine local produce markets, and many quaint shops, all within a few miles of the suite!
This suite and location are a treat for all your senses: great air to breath and beauty to behold, great food to consume, and beautiful sounds of the surf and birdcalls, and the suite itself provides comfort and restoration to your body and soul!
Hosts Wendy and Barry have been extremely generous in the quantity and quality of everything they put into this place! They are accommodating, yet not intrusive! They make you feel pampered and comfortable. Get this…now that we are home, we MISS them!!
If you enjoy quality living, with extraordinary natural coast abounding and kindhearted generous hospitality…then this is the place for you!
We hope to return in the future – or to move in permanently if Wendy and Barry will have us!!

Thank you Wendy and Barry for an unbelievably wonderful experience!!

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
I can't add much to what the previous reviewers have already stated - stunning, private, beautiful, perfect and more. My wife and I felt that we cheated ourselves in only staying for 3 nights. The accommodations and setting are everything as advertised and we felt totally welcome and pampered from the get-go. Wendy and Barry made us feel like returning long-time friends and enabled us to totally chill and relax. When will we go back? Not soon enough!

A wonderful place to relax and enjoy the beautiful Mendocino coast

  • 5 of 5
Wendy and Barry offer an amazing place to relax and experience northern California at its very best. Abalone Arch is very private yet Wendy and Barry make sure that all you need is close at hand. We spent 5 wonderful days at Abalone Arch and hope to return again soon. If you love waves crashing outside your room, gorgeous scenery and a culturally interesting town just a few miles down the road, this place is for you!

Romantic ocean view get away

  • 5 of 5
We were thrilled with our stay at Abalone Arch. The photos on the web site are lovely, but being there is beyond what the photos can show. The setting is more spectacular than a camera can capture. The suite is totally private and the ocean views are unbelievable. The private garden, with it’s romantic setting and seating has an magnificent ocean view. The kitchen is stocked with wine, cheese, fresh ground coffee, delicious home made granola and cookies. They have thought of everything that you would need.

We watched whales and sea lions from the suite while enjoying the ambiance of the lovely furnishings.

Wendy and Barry are very careful to give you complete privacy, but are there to help you with your every need.

We were celebrating a special event in our lives, and felt our time at Abalone Cove was beyond perfect.

Location

Activity and Interests

Ocean, ocean, ocean, all the sea critters at the bottom of your cliff. Whales, river otters, seals, sea lions, pelicans, seagulls and osperys are your neighbors. Walk out the gate to miles of trails ~ ocean front, quiet sandy beaches and deep fern drapped redwood canyons. Two miles south is Historic Mendocino. Lots of Restaurants, galleries, theater, and unusual shopping. Pick up a novel to read at Gallery Bookshop, come home with a bottle of wine from the Wine shop and spend the afternoon reading in the comfortable, cushioned redwood Adirondack chairs, put your feet up on the stump and pass the afternoon. The white capped waves of the ocean are just 10 feet away.
