2/5 Poor

Great location with abundant views; property needs TLC
We booked this property for our 34th wedding anniversary and even tacked on an additional night as we were so looking forward to the celebration. The studio is in a very quiet location, over a shuttered shop, and boasts wonderful views of the ocean. It is located within walking distance of restaurants, quant stores, and the Mendocino Headlines hiking areas. It was fun to sit on the deck and look across to the ocean and watch tourists come and go. The main problem with the property appears to be deferred maintenance issues and poor communication which have been documented in some reviews. We wish to point out that we have never written a poor review in 40 years of renting, but as customers who rely heavily on what others have to say, we feel the need to be honest and transparent. So, while the location and ocean view were highlights other issues certainly detracted from our stay. The cork floors have been neglected and are stained/worn, leading to a dirty feeling. As indicated in reviews, we spent multiple nights trying to get the Dish system to work so we could watch TV after long days of hiking. Never worked! There was either black mold or serious dirt on the wood window casings which should be addressed due to health issues. As previously noted, the couch and chair are highly stained and filthy and we had to put blankets on them. There were ants on the refrigerator, as noted by the last guest, and they eventually migrated to the kitchen and dining room table. There were no ant stakes on the premises. The shower head in the bathroom only allowed for a trickle of water and we had to splash water on us and could not wash our hair for two days. The drop off/return key directions are outdated as the Twist store below has been closed for a long time, according to people in town. We tried reaching out for assistance to the property owner, utilizing the contact telephone number on VRBO and welcome guest book, and left two messages for assistance. No response as others have noted. A helpful shop owner e-mailed the owner, addressing a few of the issues we were having. So, two days into our stay, the owner texted that a plumber could assess the problem that day. We returned to the property and the shower head was replaced. While the owner offered to have the couch cleaned it would then be damp/require us to be at the property. The dish system couldn't be fixed until our departure. A very disappointing experience for what could be a great property.

2/5 Poor

Great Location but place is dirty
Upon check-in there were ants on the fridge. Later in the night, there were ants in the bathroom. There was hair on the bed at first glance. The couch was so stained and dirty we had to throw a blanket over it. It is really beautiful location and charming place but the lack of cleanliness really killed our experience and stay

5/5 Excellent

Front Row on Nature
Best stay in Mendocino ever: we come up a few times a year.

3/5 Okay

Missed the mark
Location and setting excellent. Parking very good. Problem with non functional tv, especially on election night. Contact with owner not possible to problem solve snow on tv, no response to our calls. No dish washer soap. Drinking water not available as jugs not placed in dispenser. No light in bath room. Complaints are an easy fix, but irritating especially when one has high hopes for an excellent stay. Art Trujillo

5/5 Excellent

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend getaway to Mendocino. The apartment was clean, inviting, and had a killer view and front deck where we had coffee each morning and take out each evening. Couldn’t have asked for a better stay.
