The Blue Heron is a premier vacation home located on the rugged coast of Mendocino. This home is the perfect place for your family reunion, a gathering of friends, or as a romantic getaway for just the two of you.
Situated minutes from Mendocino Village, this newly remodeled home is tastefully appointed with high-vaulted ceilings, large picture windows, a wood buring stone fireplace, granite and marble countertops, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, Viking stove with six burners & convection oven, and a second fireplace above the master whirlpool bath!
Enjoy the whitewater vistas that are afforded from almost every room. Spend an afternoon observing the abundant wildlife through the picture windows or watching the Pacific Ocean crash onto the rocks. Relax in the outdoor hot tub and listen to the sounds of the ocean while you gaze up at the stars. Watch one of the many movies provided on the widescreen plasma TV with surround sound, play a board game, start a puzzle, or simply curl up with a good book in front of the fireplace.
No matter how you spend your vacation, you'll come away with lifelong memories to share with your family and friends.
