Recent Northern California vacation rental reviews

This is a lovely, comfortable, well maintained, well stocked home. A few suggestions to the owner. 1. Improve lighting in the small bedroom. 2. Consider adding a few chairs. The master bedroom is quite large but there is a big empty space that calls out for a comfy reading chair. Also, a dining chair at each end of the dining table would be nice for those who are not comfortable sitting on a bench. 3. Another lighting issue is in the dining room - the light is too dim to the point of being useless. None of these are deal breakers for us but these few changes would make the house perfect.

The property was very nice and clean. The location was perfect less than 5-minute walk to the Village. Check-In was easy and the staff was very nice and helpful!! See you next ski season! Swoosh, swoosh....

Our family of 3, plus our bulldog, stayed for 2 nights at this delightful property. We will absolutely be back. The house had every single thing we needed - plenty of cookware, plates, mugs, glasses, even lots more staples than most rental homes have. They even provided shampoo, conditioner, and soap bars! Truly so thoughtfully appointed. We took early morning walks along the bluffs right down the street, and enjoyed fires in the wood-burning stove at night. Hearing the waves crash in the master bedroom was such a great way to fall asleep. Perfect location, within easy walking to downtown Mendocino and to all the bluffs and cliffs. It was perfect and we're so grateful we discovered this home!

Our favorite spots to visit in Northern California

Water lovers will love staying almost anywhere in NorCal, especially since we offer oceanfront, lakefront, and riverfront Northern California vacation rentals. One of the best places to stay for an outdoor adventure on the water is the world famous Lake Tahoe. Not only does the second largest lake in the state offer great fishing, boating, and kayaking experiences, but those who prefer to stay on land can enjoy fantastic hiking excursions in the summer, and world-class skiing in wintertime.

We’re also huge fans of the forests and mountains that cover the Sierra Nevada area, offering plenty to savor for lovers of the outdoors. Home to Mammoth Lakes and Yosemite, among other famous locations, visitors to the region can enjoy one of our many cabin rentals surrounded by nature.

If you’re in the mood for a beach getaway, we have vacation rentals all along the Northern California coast as well, from Mendocino and Fort Bragg to Santa Rosa. Visitors to this area can explore historic towns and award-winning restaurants, all while being steps from miles of sandy beaches.

With such a variety of locations and attractions to offer, Northern California is a great place to visit for every kind of traveller. Vacasa can help you find the Northern California vacation rental that will make your traveling experience unique and memorable.
