Charming Home with Private Hot Tub and Spectacular Ocean Views

Looking for the perfect family reunion spot? Look no further than Captain Phil's gorgeous five-bedroom Albion vacation rental offering ocean views, a gourmet kitchen, fireplace, and private hot tub!

The vacation home is located just south of the village of Mendocino in a quaint coastal community. Nestled amongst the California Redwood Forest and the Little Salmon Creek, the home is the ideal spot to set back the clock and regain some peace and solitude. A five-minute drive will offer beautiful views of Albion River Bridge, a WWII era wooden trestle bridge, shopping, and oysters and artisan cheese plates at the Ledford House.

This charming getaway has exposed wood ceilings, ornate driftwood carvings, and soft leather touches. The large social areas, including the living room, kitchen, and dining room are upstairs in this second-story vacation home. Feel instantly at ease in the open-concept living room, with its soft leather reclining loveseats and sofa. The loveseats are huddled around a unique carved wood coffee table base with a glasstop, and frame the large rock fireplace and flatscreen smart TV.

You and guests will gaze into the fire or absorb the nearly panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the expansive patio. High-speed free WiFi makes it easy to keep up with friends and family back home.

Just off the living room is an exquisite kitchen with custom wood cabinets, granite countertops, and stainless-steel appliances including a built-in microwave, oven, gas range grill top stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, toaster, coffeemaker, double sink, and plenty of cutting boards and kitchen accessories to serve large meals. An expansive granite kitchen island will allow you to prep lunches for your ocean adventures. Just off the kitchen is a formal dining room with a wood table for eight. At the heart of the table is a twisted carved wood centerpiece.

Three sliding glass doors off the main living area lead to the expansive patio, complete with a mermaid figurehead at the eve of the roof. Slather up with sunscreen and lounge in the Adirondack chairs on the deck which overlooks the grassy knoll and rolling waves. When the mood is right, slip into your bathing suit for a romantic dip in the private patio hot tub overlooking the sea!

At night, this spacious home offers five bedrooms and thick mattress pads and four full bathrooms. Two bedrooms are upstairs, one with a king, an en suite with a soaking tub, and a walk-in closet, and the one with a queen-sized bed. Downstairs is three additional guest rooms with queen-sized beds, and a regal game room with an ornate claw-foot pool table with red felt. Don't forget to pack your gadgets!

Drive just a short distance for geocaching, fishing, and boating to where locals call “the redwood tunnel to the sea” at Navarro River Redwoods State Park. Make the 15-minute drive to Mendocino where you can go whale watching, board a charter fishing boat, browse book shops and galleries, or enjoy a pulled pork sandwich and local brew at Patterson's Pub.

No matter how you spend your time - kayaking the sea, butter dipping Dungeness crab in a local restaurant, or soaking in the hot tub, this gorgeous Northern California Coast vacation rental is the perfect spot for you and your family to relax with all the comforts of home and appreciate your time together in beautiful Albion.

This is the second time we have stayed at Captain Phill's. The house is wonderfully appointed with bedrooms, bathrooms, seating and a stocked kitchen. Thank you for the memories!
Kaysea J. Jul 2021
Such a great place to stay. Not being able to walk around and the quiet time was hard for us but we survived. The house its self is amazing and fit perfect for our group. I could see it being great for a multi family trip. The only reason I am doing less than 5 stars is because the hot tub broke and that was the most important part for us.
Kirstin M. Jul 2021
Great set up for a couple families. We had a great time at the house. I don’t think it was worth the money we spent. We have stayed at nicer and cleaner rentals for much less but our options were limited.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Kirstin. We sincerely apologize for the disappointment. We would have been happy to assist with any questions or concerns if we had been notified during your time with us. Our local team strives to provide every one of our guests with the best vacation possible. We are so sorry if our standards were not met during your time with us, and we hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future!
Bennett Y. Jul 2021
The house was very peaceful and had something for everyone. Spa, games, pool table, ocean view, and many rooms to sleep in and plenty of full bathrooms. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Sandee B. Jun 2021
We, a group of teachers who’ve been in the classroom all year, escaped for some much needed rest and relaxation. The Good Captain, our nickname for the property, took excellent care of us. Providing us with both spaces to connect and spaces to take private time. The views are amazing and the kitchen is dreamy. Thank you for sharing this lovely place with us.
Mazy R. Apr 2021
We stayed at captain Phil’s for a family getaway with my parents and my 4 kids and it was absolutely wonderful! We were all very comfortable, plenty of space. The open kitchen and family room with a huge dining table was perfect for being together and making and enjoying great meals. The property is gorgeous, we spent a lot of time hanging out on the deck and looking for wildlife- birds, turkey and deer! The hot tub is an added bonus for maximum relaxation!
Such a great location- just a few hours from SF and then an easy drive into the adorable town of Mendocino. We went kayaking, rode the skunk train, watched the sunset from the headlands, and enjoyed the many beaches and hikes. Truly an outstanding vacation for nature lovers like us, from ages 2 to 80! :)
Leslie N. Apr 2021
We loved this home & truly felt relaxed while we were there! Loved the big kitchen & beds were super comfy!
Chris W. Mar 2021
The house is big and open for a large family getaway and room for everyone to have their space. Pool table and games in house and a deck with a view of the ocean is amazing, There is a hot tub to watch the waves from. (We didn't use it this trip) We sat out enjoyed the sun a glass of wine and watched the whales. And just relaxed away from our daily duties.
count & hope b. Jan 2021
The ocean, the deer on the lawn, the hawks and birds, the mist, the rain, the sun, the stars, the hot tub, the peace...
Michele B. Dec 2020
Lovely house in quiet area with beautiful view and all the amenities you need. Wonderful for kids and one dog. Had a wonderful time. Will come back. Thank you for a lovely week away.
Rayna S. Nov 2020
Very spacious and beautiful view but you're not allowed to walk the area. Also the house wasn't very clean. There was pet hair in one of the beds, mouse poop on the stairs, and smelled like cats.
Very good size home for a big family and fun pool table!
Manager response:
Hi, Rayna! We are so glad you stayed with us and apologize for any housekeeping oversights. We were unaware of any mice in the home and will address this right away. Thank you!
Bryan S. Nov 2020
We truly loved staying in this home. At first, we were not sure because our original reservation was a home in Sea Ranch which was cancelled by Vacasa due to Covid and the turn time needed between guests. I had never been to Albion, but it turned out to be a wonderful stay. The house is very comfortable for cooking and relaxing watching the ocean. We loved the oversized scrabble board and the comfortable furnishings. It was also a lot of fun to go to Mendocino and look at all the shops. The beach was a five minute drive to Navarro Beach which was sandy, large and when we went twice, we were the only ones on the beach. This is one of the most well-equipped houses I have ever stayed and it made it really nice. I would love to return with my family when the house is available for more guests. It would be perfect for a family gathering or holiday. Thank you for hosting us and we will return again in the future.
Jesse H. Aug 2020
It has all the amenities you are looking for a family getaway. Great location, cozy, plenty of room for everyone.
Joan N. Aug 2020
We loved this beautiful home with a great ocean view but in many places you are instructed to never walk off your own property. They ask that you don't even walk around in the neighborhood on the road! We felt a bit trapped as we had to drive any time we wanted to walk around.
Manager response:
Hi Joan! Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in this beautiful home! We appreciate your feedback and your adherence to the Good Neighbor Policy, as many of our homes are situated in areas where the neighbors are not on vacation. Our team is available 24-hours to assist with any questions or concerns a guest may have in booking the perfect home for their stay. We hope to host you again soon!
Mari S. Jul 2020
Extremely clean, spacious and well equipped home.
Karen N. Mar 2020
The views from the deck were stunning. The house was beautiful and wonderfully appointed for our group of 9.
Lauren B. Jan 2020
The views are simply stunning. The house itself has everything you’d need and plenty of space. My only complaint is when you’re in the downstairs bedrooms and someone flushes the toilet upstairs it is extremely loud - feels like you’re in a water tunnel. If you have light sleepers downstairs it could be frustrating. That said, I would still highly recommend staying here!
Randolph T. Sep 2019
We stayed here for 4 days for our daughter's September Albion wedding.
This property was all we hoped it would be. 5 lovely bedrooms, a large great room with plentiful seating and large dining area, large modern kitchen and everything we could have possibly needed. The deck was large with 4 Adirondack chairs and a beautiful ocean view and hot tub. There was a basket full of beach towels for the hot tub if you used it and light blankets for sitting outside at night. There were multiple toasters, a laundry room with w/d, iron, ironing board. It was quiet and in a gated community. We all loved this place! I would highly recommend it.
Cathy F. Aug 2019
Loved the big kitchen and all the space to make a reunion so spectacular! The home was clean and had all the amenities you could want!
Margarita B. Jan 2019
We rented Captain Phil’s to celebrate a special birthday with our family and the home could not have been more perfect for us!! Beautifully appointed, spacious and views from every window. We were able to spend quality time together in a gorgeous location We are looking forward to our next family get away at Captain Phil’s!!
Angela V. Jan 2019
We had a great family reunion over New Year's weekend with an ocean view of the Mendocino Coast. We enjoyed beachcombing, hot tubbing, cycling Hwy 1, running, cooking fabulous meals in the spacious kitchen, sleeping in VERY comfy beds, and playing pool! Great place for a large family!
Keng leng Y. Nov 2018
Awesome place and it’s so spacious. It’s a great place for a mini getaway.
Nancy D. Oct 2018
It was open, light, bright, clean with a lovely ocean view. Sunsets and stars. Well equipped and comfortable!

Vinay K. Jun 2018
Awesome view of ocean. Loved the house and arrangements.
Chee L. May 2018
Everything worked well and the place was very beautiful! Would definitely do it again, hopefully soon. The customer service was smooth and great!
Emily C. Dec 2017
There is no cell phone signal available and house phone can only make local call. Suggest to enable WiFi signal on usage as needed base, like $10 per day. Feel like disconnect with outside world without internet access.
Suzanne G. Nov 2017
Nice, spacious home with gorgeous view. Comfortable beds and linens. However, no reading lights in any of the rooms, including the family room. No internet or wi-fi means you and your kids will spend some old fashioned quality time together. The pool table and hot tub with ocean view are nice amenities. However the home could use a woman's touch to make it feel warm and inviting. Some new kitchen cookware and dishes would really make a difference. The bbq and washing machine were out of order during our stay.
Manager response:
We sincerely apologize for the inconveniences experienced due to the washing machine and BBQ being out of order. We are working very hard to either repair or replace both items. We will suggest to the owner that they provide reading lamps. Thank you!
Laura C. Oct 2017
Captain Phil's was great! It was a great location with a great view. However, unfortunately you can not walk to the beach or ocean which would have been nice. But everything was in very close driving distance. The house itself is beautiful, spacious, and very clean. Loved the hot tub, fireplace, and big kitchen, great for entertaining. I would definitely recommend and would stay here again!
Beth H. Sep 2017
Our party of seven had a wonderful, relaxing stay and this was a great place to convene after our days of adventure. Things to know: the kitchen has basics. It would be hard to do a lot of cooking; The view is wonderful, including deer that wander through. However, this property is land locked so not feasible to go for walks. If walks and cooking are not your thing, this place is a great find. Some wonderful restaurants in the area.Write your review here
Ram T. Sep 2017
The home is very spacious and the features just as described on the website. Quite neighborhood and perfect place to spend vacation with family and friends.
Kelly M. Sep 2017
Love that my blended family of 10 had a room to their selves! Great property! We will be back!
Denise M. May 2017
Very comfy home. Perfect for gathering and enjoying the area. Limited ocean view. You can see the waves but no beach etc.
John T. Apr 2017
Nice home, beautiful views, nice hot tub, plenty of room for a large group. Love the recliners!
Do coastal access and no phone, no cell service and no internet service.
Martha D. Apr 2017
Great stay! We loved the location,! There seemed to be some ants in living room.
Carla S. Mar 2017
This house had a great layout for several couples and a fantastic view. Not sure if I would bring kids. No where to walk from the house, no beach or bluff access.
Ashleigh W. Mar 2017
This property was just the perfect size for our family and offered amazing views of the ocean. Thank you so much for the weekend getaway.
Chris W. Mar 2017
This house and location was great for the group of us who needed to getaway. The weather was very nasty this weekend. And Wind and rain had things blowing all around us. So could not use the spa on the deck. The kitchen could use a few more utensils for preparing meals little easier. And has no storage for left overs. But these are little things for a Great big lovely house and views. Even has a pool table downstairs for something to do, while in the house.
Emily B. Jan 2017
Fantastic location and house! Big enough for two families and the bonus was you can bring your pet!
David D. Sep 2016
Great house. Felt like a safe and peaceful home base for dining together, and staging adventures up and down the coast. Comfy beds, lots of bathrooms and a very hot tub on the deck. Sunny living room. Large dining room table. Just right for us.
One star deleted from "location" ---- Neighbors did NOT take kindly to some of our mellow/quiet group walking (via shared driveway?) to the nearby bluffs to catch a closer view of the crashing waves and a whiff of the ocean breeze... too bad there's not an agreed-upon open access path/etc. So be tactful/careful if you decide to venture closer :-)
Scott T. Sep 2016
There is no where to walk around the house. Neighbors have many signs siting private property and no trespassing. If you want to leave the house you need to get right in your car and drive somewhere else. The trash and recycling are simple placed in the garage where there are bins labeled. Don't pay attention to the sign in the kitche that was take recycling with you. Nice house if you are fine with staying put for a few days. And in this case I hope the update the entertainment for you.
Mary Ann J. Sep 2016
House size for the 7 of us was awesome. Liked being able to sit together in the living area & at the dining table and work together in the kitchen. View is great but we could have used 2 more deck chairs. Thank you for sharing your house.
Nick R. Sep 2016
Can't wait to rent it again
Kay D. Aug 2016
There really is no beach access, walking paths, or cliff views because the property is inland from the neighbors and they have strict no trespassing signs. So even though the ocean is right there, one needs to drive a distance to access cliff or shoreline views. There are some beautiful public areas within 20 to 30 minutes' drive north or south of the home.
Sharon F. Jul 2016
Large house and property but besides the fun in the house, there really isn't anything you can do unless you go out with your car. Th e property is surrounded by private homes and private property signs so you can't really do any walking or anything adventurous.
Laurel E. Jul 2016
We enjoyed the house
Jeff W. Jun 2016
Had a nice stay, and the location was perfect for access to boat launch and close enough to Mendocino for shopping
Renee B. Jun 2016
Our family had a wonderful vacation kicking off our summer. The house worked perfectly for our trip and we found that it had everything we needed. We would stay at Captain Phil's again in a heartbeat and hope it's still available for our next trip!
Gregory And Debbie S. May 2016
Beautiful home, fairly close to Anderson Valley wineries and Mendicino
Peter K. May 2016
Beautiful vacation home in the sea front to spend your time with family and friends.
Dennis Y. Apr 2016
The view and overall structure of the house was great. We loved the open floor plan with lots of light and windows to enjoy the view. The hot tub was great. We had an issue with the overall cleanliness (odor, dust, dirty dishes put away in the cabinet, master bedroom sheets not clean). Also, there was not enough towels and the ones they supplied were stained and in bad shape. All of that aside, our family enjoyed our time and stay.
Manager response:
We are very sorry to see that housekeeping was not up to par and will be sure to work with our team on reaching our cleanliness standards.
Marcia M. Apr 2016
Great central living space upstairs with beautiful Pacific views, easy parking and comfortable beds. Note that there is no beach or cliff access because that is someone else's property; go to parks for that experience. Hot tub is hot with a great view of the ocean, but not completely private from view of other houses. Pool table is a plus!!
Paul B. Mar 2016
No wifi for me is a major bummer! For my work that was a huge deal!
I would have never stayed here if I had know there was no wifi! the phone was not functioning. So without cell phone reception. We had no way to communicate with work or family without driving into town...
I have rented a lot of places. It was my bad for assuming there would be wifi.... i should have looked at the rental agreement..
Manager response:
We apologize that the lack of WiFi caught you off-guard and hope it allowed you the opportunity to disconnect and enjoy your time on the coast.
Cathy O. Mar 2016
Great house for the 10 of us gathering once yearly. Captain Phil's is a roomy beautiful home. We enjoyed the fire place on the rainy weekend we were there.
Sydney E. Dec 2015
This house was perfect for a big group of people there is plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen, fireplace and views were so relaxing. Lots of laughter and fun we will definitely be staying again. I can't say enough how much I liked this house the rooms are spacious and the pool table down stairs was such a bonus, kept everyone engaged without the phones. I LOVE that is no WiFi just the views and sounds of the ocean. There is cable which is nice at night for movies. So amazing!
Garrett Y. Nov 2015
Every November a group of friends gets together for one last weekend of abalone diving before the season ends. We've had some epic weekends but I think this one was the best. The house was perfect. Very clean, the lay out was perfect, had everything we needed, and the views are beyond description. The large upstairs was perfect for a large group dinner and it never felt cramped. We had a wonderful experience and will be back next year for sure.
Aileen C. Oct 2015
We had a lovely time at Captain Phil's. Our one regret was not bringing captain hats to wear for our pictures! Thanks again!!
Jules F. Sep 2015
We had a pleasant relaxing stay. Everything seemed clean and comfortable. CD, DVD, surround sound needs replacement/ upgrade and WiFi would be nice but not necessary. We certainly would consider coming back.
Barbara C. Sep 2015
Lovely home and location. Management should oversee it better. Considering the cool and foggy weather there we think it crucial that the TV in the main living area work. We were able to work through it...there are printed info and warnings as to how to operate it, but apparently the prior visitors had messed it up. So a simpler fool (kid) proof approach would be helpful.
Ajay P. Sep 2015
Away from city noise, true nature's beauty can be observed here. At night time you can clearly see milky-way and stars. At day time, you can soak yourself to sandy beaches.
Christina J. Aug 2015
We loved the location! Easy drive to Ft. Bragg and Mendocino. Several places along the way to hit the beach. The house was beautiful, clean and easy to find. The bbq was dirty, but otherwise we loved it! Peaceful, quiet, great ocean view! The Ledford House and The Albion River Inn are great dinner options. We would love to go there again!
Mary D. Jul 2015
Great family room and kitchen!!
Loved the space. Thank you for a great weekend.
Kirk S. Feb 2015
Beautiful views and a great location. If you want a nice newer home with million dollar views, this is the place!
