Bell View is an ideal property for a quick stay, the upstairs TV loft makes it very convenient when separating adults from others, the split decks and spa are a definite plus in sunny weather, the wood fire was welcome on cold mornings and cool evenings.
Hi Tim and Jennifer! You know you are adored by this Office Staff!!!! See ya next time. Hugs! Kim
Property has some issues. Missing window screens, ceiling panels out of place, Direct TV not working. Good location, great view. Worked well for 4 adults and 1 child.
We love staying at Irish Beach, and Bellview is becoming one of our favorite properties. We like the layout of the house and the decks, the comfort of the beds, sunshine in the kitchen in the morning, the sound of the ocean and the comfort of the hot tub
We were very happy and would be glad to return to this rental again.
The home was located high enough to give an ocean view...lots of trees, very quiet and comfortable. Beds are not overly comfortable and there is no wi-fi and if there is a lighthouse view, its probably with the telescope on a very clear day! However, we
would rent this great place again..beach is great! Appliances were in good working order, except new remotes for the upstairs TV and media would be a good idea.
Oh darn that fog! Whenever it heats up in the Valley it keeps the marine layer right on top of the Coast. The Fall is our best weather months. Hope to see you again!
A great quiet spot with a great view of the ocean and lighthouse, a great deck to also view the wildlife, relaxing and comfortable.
House is perfect for 6 people. Very comfortable. The BBQ is completely shot. The elements are rusted beyond use. When we told the man at the rental agency about it, he asked if we even checked to see if there was propane. At $200 bucks a night, I don't
think thats our responsibility. The hot tub is very nice, double deck is a plus! Appliances are like new...beds are very comfy. This is our 5th time renting from Irish Beach agency, and will do so again!!
Hi Kathleen, Oh Boy - You are so very right!! The Boss should've been much more supportive and I will chastise him shortly on your behalf. Our sincere apologies. Thank you for letting us know about the bbq. The Coastal weather causes almost everything to rust. We have sinced purchased a brand new bbq. Thank you and hope to see you again. Happy Monday! Kim
What a great stay at Bellview!! Fabulous two level deck with lots of room to spread out and enjoy the view. Upper level deck has a hot tub. The house is surrounded on 3 sides by beautiful manzanita pines. A vew of the ocean and Point Arena lighthouse.
Inside is very open, with a loft upstairs with games, chess set to play. Overalll a wonderful place!!
We had a lot of problems getting up the drivewat when wet. Our Prius may have added to the problem because of being so light. But it took 7 tries to get up to the main rd. due to the potholes in the driveway. The fireplace needs to be secured as it fell
out when unloading the fire box that was too full to start a fire. The stairs to the loft roon are very steep and the treads are way too small for the "steepness". Someone will fall if left as is. Have a few things like batteries on hand as the remotes all
needed replacement. Over-all enjoyed our stay and would return, just get the stairs redone for the renters and owners sake!
Comfortable "digs" for 8 thirty-somethings, hot tub is a plus!
Hi Jennifer! I'm so sorry that I missed you guys when you arrived. Next year right?! Hugs to Daddio!
The family had wonderful time. Great accommodations, great location.
I enjoy the Bellview. The views of the ocean were more than I expected. The hot tub was a lovely experience. I was here for my daughters wedding and the house was a perfect place to rest before the big day.
I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again next year.
Everything was great but some of the furniture had rips in it upstairs. And the hot tub was very small.
I've stayed at homes within the Irish Beach community 5 or 6 times now. The Bellview is the property that caters to my needs as a Mendocino abalone diver better than anywhere else I could find. Two huge patio deck spaces allows for gear to be rinsed and
organized each day before and after diving. The jacuzzi tub is the perfect follow-up for a four-hour dive in sub-50 degree water. The 3-bedrooms and couch space can easily accomodate 4-6 divers comfortably. Two grills on the patio (propane and charcoal) add
dimension to preparing abalone and fish. Chopping/pounding block on wheels allows us to roll it outside and enjoy the mountain air while tenderizing the catch. I have stayed here on family trips too. Adults and kids both found it the perfect place to call
home after a long day of excursions. A woodburner with plenty of wood stock gave us extra special evenings relaxing on the couch with the family. Most all my trips have a small budget. The Bellview rates are as good as it gets. I'll be back soon. Thanks again
This is a nice house with a good layout for a vacation home. Watching whales from the deck was a great plus. We thought the cost of the rental was very fair and the cleaning service made for an easy departure. Having access to the beach area is a nice
plus as well. Overall we would recommend this property for people looking to have a relaxing time at the coast.
The Bellview house is a great bargain. You may not be on the bluff or meadow, but the house is comfortable and peaceful. On a sunny day you have a good view of the Point Arena lighthouse and the ocean while you enjoy the hot tub.
The house is one of the least expensive of those offered at Irish Beach and yet was tremendously practical for a family. The house is very comfortable and set-up in a very practical sense. If you are looking for a posh executive retreat with a view overlooking
the ocean, this is not the house for you. We brought our three teenagers with us, each with their best friend, so we used the 8 person sleeping capacity available in this house and it worked out great. With a loft and a bedroom upstairs and two bedrooms downstairs,
everybody had a place to retreat to and sleep. Yet the downstairs living room and dining area are all one, like a great room, so great for everybody enjoying the evening together. The house does have a view of the ocean from the second story deck and is located
in the canyon part of the Irish Beach development, so that you also are in among forest; the best of both sea and forest; an unforeseen benefit prior to our arriving there. The location is secluded and yet not, with four neighbor homes within 100 feet or so
spread across the canyon, all with views of the ocean. Lots of wildlife can be seen there. We had deer feeding with fawns around the property in the morning and evening, LOTS of hummingbirds feeding on the Hot Poker plants planted at a house nearby, and we
even saw chipmunks, the first that I can remember seeing anywhere outside of the Sierras. There were also plenty of gray tree squirrels and about 20 buzzards sleeping each evening in a large pine tree across the canyon from us.
The only drawback was that the downstairs bathroom had an odor the entire time that seemed to be coming up the washbasin drain, probably due to a septic tank problem or due to a plugged up riser pipe connected from the waste pipe line up to the roof to vent
off fumes. These pipes sometimes get plugged up due to wildlife dropping stuff down the pipes or just detritus from the surrounding forest trees falling in.
The Bellview house was warm and cozy, the kitchen well stocked with lots of pots and pans for making a great Thanksgiving Dinner.
