4/5 Good

Fantastic view
The view at Shangri-La is every bit as fantastic as the pictures show. Even if it is a bit chilly or the wind is blowing, you can completely appreciate the place and the location. Conveniently located within 10 minutes of Mendocino.

5/5 Excellent

Shangri-la Paradise
This cottage is a Shangri-la Paradise. The view from the cottage is truly Heavenly! You are mesmerized by the amazing beauty of the ocean and the ever changing scenery throughout the day. The beauty of the ocean coast in the different being glorious sunsets, clear mornings, clear nights, or misty days. Each day we spent was a picture postcard. My husband on a very clear night was able to take a picture of the moon and see the craters of the moon from the picture. He also was able to take pictures of the milky way and the stars. The cottage is cozy and quaint with all the amenities you need to enjoy your stay. The owners are very kind, helpful, and understanding. We spent our days just looking at the view, reading, or relaxing in the hot tub. We enjoyed our stay in the cottage so much that most of the time we cooked or picked up meals and ate them at the cottage. We found peace and serenity staying in this wonderful cottage. We certainly will be rebooking in the future. Thank you Jonathan & Genevieve for allowing us to experience your slice of paradise! From K&D

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful and clean!
We stayed for 3 nights at Jon and Gen’s cliff house. They take COVID-cleaning seriously, and we had no worries. We spent most of our time on the deck enjoying the sound and the view of the ocean, and we were lucky enough to catch a beautiful sunset wo the fog. We cooked all our meals at the house, and the kitchen is very well equipped with nice pots and pans. I strongly recommend this house and I’d love to come back some day!

5/5 Excellent

Second time
We love this getaway where you can walk to a lovely dinner after watching the sun set over the ocean. Hot tub view is incredible! Note the restaurant is closed on Mondays & Tuesdays so we were so glad Jonathan told us Sunday! Location is fantastic, amenities terrific and we will definitely be back. This is our go-to spot for a quiet getaway. We could not get our “smart” phones to interact with the “smart” tv but we decided it was better without. Jonathan gave us information and details when he checked us in and then we just relaxed into our nights away. The whales came to show off and the binoculars in the cabin helped us watch them. Thank you for everything and we will be back! Catherine & Tamara

5/5 Excellent

Can't wait to come back!
We loved this house! We needed an escape from everything and that was exactly what we got. From the views, to the hot tub, to the great binder filled with information and suggestions, the very friendly owners have made this place a great place to relax and recharge. We have recommended it to friends and family, some have already booked stays, and will continue to do so. Personally, we are looking forward to our next stay at this amazing little piece of paradise. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. Matthew and Karin Salling
