A guest from San Rafael, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2016 A wonderful place! We had a great time spending our 5 days. The weather was awesom and the view was magnificent. Thank you! We will definitely concider the place again and recommend it to our friends.
Dan B. from Stony brook, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2016 Everything went exceptionally well. The house is beautiful and very well decorated. Much nicer than another house we had stayed at a few years ago at Irsh Beach. Michelle at the rental agency was very available and responsive when we needed her.
Beautiful base for a romantic stay or a vacation with the family
Jeff R. from Boulder, Colorado recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2016 We've been coming back to Irish Beach every year or two since getting married in Elk almost 24 years ago. I love the area with the ocean, redwoods, wineries, Botanical Gardens and everything the area has to offer. There's a gate accessible beach down below that is very private and nice to walk along and relax.This trip, my wife and I went with my brother and his girlfriend and had a great time. This is the second or third time we've stayed at the Bellagio and I really like it. Great views, nice hot tub, beautiful kitchen and great place to bring back the wine you bought and sit on the deck or in the hot tub and relax.The only issues I had were with the shower nozzle didn't operate quite correctly in the master bathroom and the fact that when we picked up our keys during a late arrival, the hot tub key wasn't included. However, I asked about it the next day and they were able to provide it without a problem.This was a couples trip, but when we've come before we've also brought the kids and the rental houses are a great way to enjoy that. I also took advantage of the timing and was able to get a great deal booking offseason at about half what it would normally cost, so that was great too.I highly recommend the area, Irish Beach, and the Bellagio.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Jeff, Thank You for choosing Irish Beach as your vacation location!! Hope to be seeing you and your family soon! Thanks Michelle
Janice C. from Waterford, California recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in March, 2016 This house has a great view. The kitchen is very well stocked so it is easy to cook all your favorites while staying here.! Relaxing sounds of the surf below 24/7 and you can't beat the view.! The deck is wonderful and has new patio furniture for lots of comfortable seating. I do feel the owners need to update the living room sofa. It is worn down and not very comfortable anymore.I love Irish Beach. It is a gem of a place.! And of course, as always the office staff are wonderful.
John C. from Reno, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in January, 2016 This is our third time renting from this agency and we could not be happier. Francesca, Kim and Gordon provided us with outstanding service from the time we booked in Dec 2014 until we checked out this past Saturday. We stayed in the Bellagio House for 8 days and loved the property.The Good:The house is very well designed with an open floor plan providing amazing views, kitchen is set up in a way so that as you work, you are enjoying the view (that is a real nice touch)Furniture is very comfortableBeds are perfect (not too hard or too soft)Kitchen is EXTREMELY well stockedDeck is spaciousHot tub is awesome (sitting in that tub and looking at the lighthouse rocks)Seeing a family of deer feeding in our yard is pricelessSome things to note:There is a market in Manchester that is OK- drive time is about 5 minutesGeneral Store in Elk makes great sandwiches and soups- drive time is about 15 minutesFranny's in Point Arena is amazing- drive time is about 15 minutesMendocino is about a 35 minute driveFort Bragg is about a 50 minute driveAnderson Valley for wine tasting is about an hour driveWe look forward to our return

A guest from Danville, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2015 Great common area and very clean and modern kitchen. Master bedroom and bath also clean. 2nd bathroom a little run down. Outside entry light and hot tub needs to be fixed. Great views of the ocean and the kitchen is well stocked with dishes. Reliable wifi.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Mr. Cuenco, Thank you so much for taking the time to review the lovely Bellagio home. We always appreciate valuable renter feedback and we look forward to your next stay. Happy Holidays, Kim
Alex S. from Pleasant Hill, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2015 HI, we have just returned from small getaway to this haven on earth. When we arrived, it was already pitch black - light posts are not really popular in that area :) thanks to navigations, we found the house. house itself looks in the process of renovation, newly redone kitchen, living room and somewhat bedrooms but outdated bathrooms (IN PERFECT CONDITIONS though, that is probably why the pressure in the shower is like Niagara Falls!!!! forgot how it feels like, to be honest )SO.... morning ... we could not get ourselves unglued from that view !!!! OH MY !!!!We were lucky to have all days clear so we had perfect breakfasts on the back balcony and UNREAL sunsets watching from Jacuzzi. House seemed to be stocked with all necessities, humongous beds and more than plenty space for family of 3. we will definitely consider to be back !!! thank you very much for perfect getaway !!!!!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Alex, Thank You for choosing Irish Beach as your vacation destination. We hope to see you again. Thanks Michelle
John G. from Malvern, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2015 Wow--what a fabulous vacation home! Bellagio is even better in person than it is on the website. We and our guests found the beds as comfortable as those in luxury hotels (for example, Westin), and the kitchen was a joy in which to prepare gourmet meals. Living room was a cozy spot to settle down with a good book, and the new dining set (Restoration Hardware?) was perfect for the long, lingering dinners we enjoy.By the way, my wife was delighted to find that a washer and dryer were in the home; the online description did not include them. We loved Bellagio so much, we have already booked it again for our next visit to California!
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Mr. and Mrs. Gorman, Thank you so much for taking the time to provide some valuable and positive renter feedback. We truly appreciate it, as does the Home Owner of the gorgeous Bellagio and we look forward to your next visit. Happy Days, Kim
Jon D. from Ukiah, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 Most stunning beach view from the kitchen and living room, to the Jacuzzi, right on the cliff. This house comes equipped to the hilt with everything - recommend highly.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Jon, Thank you for taking the time to review the Bellagio home. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed it so. Hope to see you again soon! IBRA Staff
Scott S. from Auburn, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2015 The home is small(ish) though has a great floor plan and incredible views from nearly every room. The deck and hot-tub cannot be beat. Bedrooms and bathrooms were fine, though the beds were definitely too soft - new firmer mattresses would probably improve ratings. Service from Irish Beach Rental folks was perfect - e.g. propane on BBQ was out - I called the office on a late Saturday afternoon and they brought a new tank to me in minutes. The private beach is very nice and relatively secluded, though it's a bit of a hike. Overall, great experience, and a great escape.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Scott, Thank you for taking the time to review the Bellagio home. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! We will be sure to pass along your comments about updates to the home owner. We hope to see you again soon! IBRA Staff
Barbara M. from Geyserville, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 Very private, some days you will be the only people on the beach! The home is cozy and the kitchen is loaded with dishes, pots & pans, silverware and lots more! Large flat screen t.v.,
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Barbara, So glad you enjoyed your stay in Bellagio. See you next time! -Franchesca
Brian B. from Fairfield, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 This was our second trip to Irish Beach. What's not to love about relaxing, walking on the beach and great views. Renting is easy, leaving is painful (physically, not the process).
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Brian, WooHoo! We are so glad that you had a great stay at Bellagio and we look forward to your next visit. Happy Days, Kim
Spectacular views, excellent location, private beach, not clean
Masha V. from Sacramento, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 This was our first time renting from this management company and staying at Irish Beach. We loved the location and how secluded the beach is. The views from the Bellagio property were just spectacular. We stayed as a family of four (parents and two young children) and everyone equally enjoyed spending time on the spacious patio watching the ocean and the waves. We also equally enjoyed access to the private beach and the beauty of the coast line. The house itself was functional, well situated, furnished, and properly stocked in the kitchen and bathrooms. We expected the home to be older, so we didn't get disappointed with the dated bathrooms' decor and overall house condition due to aging. However, the only truly negative comment I have is how clean or not clean the house was upon check in. I realize "clean" might be a subjective concept and I am the person on the very "clean" side of the spectrum, but we did expect the floors and surfaces to be wiped and washed properly. The floor under the dining room table clearly dispalyed remnants of the prior tenants' food /snacking (pieaces of chips), the hair and small general dust was around the furniture and under the tables. The surfaces in the bathrooms and living areas were not wiped properly and I had to use wipes and vaccum to make the house more pleasant for us to stay in, especially when small children are involved who like to play on the floor. Once the house was cleaned by us( which shouldn't have happenned), our stay was very relaxing and enjoyable. The views are so hard to beat. Bellagio is a superb location, but needs more attention from the cleaning staff. Please make a note of it!
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Good Afternoon Masha, We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at the gorgeous Bellagio home. We have been training a new housekeeper and we apologize if items were missed. I'll be certain to notify the Housekeeping Supervisor. Happy Days, Kim
A guest from Piedmont, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2015 We had such a great time! We had wonderful weather sun & fog it was great to see the waves crashing in. Went down to the beach and enjoyed walking to the tide pools. The Bella house was terrific - what a view!
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Kathy, We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Bellagio. It is a beautiful home. We hope to see you again soon! IBRA
A guest from Lake Tapps, WA. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 Very nice home, great kitchen if you like to cook. The view is spectacular! Would love to see some updated outdoor furniture, some of the chairs are falling apart.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Maggie, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with valuable renter feedback. We always appreciate our renter comments. We will let the home owner know about updating the outdoor Adirondack chairs. Happy Days, Kim

Lincoln Y. from Oregon House, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2015 We had a wonderfully restful getaway in this house. The house has a well stocked kitchen and the view from the deck and hot tub is unbeatable.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Mr. Young, Thank you for taking the time to review the Bellagio House. We are so pleased to hear your had a wonderful relaxing time here! Hope to see you again soon! The IBRA Staff
A guest from Castro Valley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2014 We've been visiting Irish Beach in Manchester, California on and off for over 25 years, most for a New Years getaway with friends. We've stayed in several of the homes but have really enjoyed the Bellagio. Absolutely perfect for two couples.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Daniel, So glad you enjoyed your stay once again! See you next time. Happy New Year- Franchesca
Definitely worth the stay but certainly not perfect
Kirk M. from West Bloomfield, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2014 The rental people offering this property are wonderful to work with. I stayed at the BELLAGIO rental home for two nights over this past 2014 Holiday period along with my adult age daughter. We really enjoyed ourselves there and I don't have nothing bad to stay about our rental experience. However, there are some weird things about the place which I'm sure everyplace has but I'll list some of them to help other people figure things out sooner than I did. For example, although the Wifi signal is excellent you have to refresh it every 2 hours because it automatically stops working. The room light switches don't make much sense. One light switch in the master bedroom turns on a set of living room lights! The central heating vent in the queen bedroom is located under a cabinet so you can't get to it. Unfortunately, that bedroom heats up really fast making it very warm to sleep in overnight, even with the door open. Nonetheless, there's a lot to like about this place. It has a very simple and functional floor plan with wonderful ocean views. Keep in mind it's an hour drive from Mendocino. I thought it was closer looking on the map and although its only 33 driving miles, they are tough driving miles taking you the full hours time.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Kirk, Thank you so much for taking the time to review the Bellagio home, we always appreciate renter feedback. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again! -Franchesca
A guest from Santa Rosa, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2014 We stayed with children and grandchildren and there was never a shortage of things to do. The stunning, brilliantly equipped kitchen, was a pleasure for Thanksgiving and the walks both up the hill and along the beach were incredible. This home is the perfect spot for sunset watching. The rental agency responded to our one tiny problem and despite the soft beds, we slept deeply. The sofa bed in the living room is rather old and has a wafer thin mattress. We pulled it off and put it on the floor. The one snag - Internet speed barely permits reading emails and loads too slowly for those of us who need to work. This needs improvement.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Anne-Marie, Thank you for choosing to spend your Thanksgiving here at Irish Beach and taking the time to leave a wonderful comment :) I will be sure to pass along your comments and concerns to the owner. hope to see you back here soon! Cheers, Maia
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Good Morning Anne-Marie, Thank you so very much for taking the time to review the lovely Bellagio home. We always appreciate Renter feedback. I will let the home owner know about the sofa bed. Unfortunately, in our geographically challenged locale the internet is quite scarce with only a few homes at Irish Beach even having Wi-Fi. However, good news is that a new company is in the Beta test stages for implementing new Wi-Fi on the South Coast. Fingers crossed. Happy Monday and hope to see you in the future. Kim
Robert H. from Lakeport, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2014 We love Irish Beach. Everything at the Bellagio house was very nice. The weather was perfect, in the high sixties to low seventies. The one and only thing that has us thinking of possibly looking at a different house for next year is that the Bellagio got extremely hot from around one o'clock until around five o'clock. The air and fans were not enough to keep it comfortable at these times of day. We were out on the deck most of the time so not a big deal but preparing food, playing games etc. had to wait for things to cool off later in the day.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Mr. Hammond, Thank you for taking the time to review the gorgeous Bellagio home. We always appreciate our Renter's feedback. We look forward, as always, to your next visit. Happy Days, Kim
A guest from Oakland, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2014 The panoramic ocean views were amazing, and the house was well-appointed. The problem was, you had to discover everything during the course of your stay (for example, there was a card taped to the side of the refrigerator that was for beach access but didn't tell me where to find the trail down to the beach; the wi-fi password was taped to the wi-fi, and I didn't find that until a few days in.) Why not have a clear information sheet for the place that lists everything you need to know? And when I called the rental agency, the woman was nice but new and didn't know answers to my questions; she asked someone there and called back an hour later, with incorrect answers. Once you find everything out about the place, it's really a joy (though the mattresses are horrible and soft, as other reviewers have said, and the master bedroom shower drips for hours after it's been turned off.) Not sure we'd come back but I'd recommend it, if that makes sense.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Holly, Thank you for taking the time to leave some valuable renter feedback. Happy Days, Kim
A guest from Piedmont, California recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in September, 2014 We had a wonderful time at Bella. We loved the beautiful view and the house was well stocked. We enjoyed all the deer that came by and I loved the hot tub and that view was spectacular!!!The only thing this house needs are hand rails both going to the deck and in the house going down to the main room.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Kathy! Thank you for taking the time to review the Bellagio home! So glad to her you had a wonderful stay and I will be sure to pass along the hand rails suggestion :) See you next time! Maia
Robert C. from Palos Verdes Estates, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014 The view and ambience are tough to beat. If you are looking for a remote hideaway, this is it.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Mr. Campbell, It was a pleasure meeting you and I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay at the Bellagio home. We hope to see you again. Happy Days, Kim
Keith S. from Sacramento, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2014 Excellent house with a great view. The kitchen is fantastic and we enjoyed taking our time with dinner each night. We thought the master bed was very comfortable, soft, but very comfortable. It was clean, but previous reviews concerning the need for a deep clean are correct. Nothing significant, but there if you're looking for it. Overall, would highly recommend to anyone.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Mr. Smith, WooHoo! Someone likes the new super comfy soft bed. :-) Thank you for taking the time to leave Renter Feedback as it is always appreciated. Happy Days, Kim
A guest from Cambridge, MA. does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 We enjoyed the view, but there isn't much to do in our surrounding area less than an hour's drive. The bed was a source of concern before we arrived from previous reviews. They were confirmed, none of us had a good night's sleep on the soft beds.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Good Afternoon Alice, We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay at the Bellagio home. It is our 2nd most popular home. The isolation of the Mendocino Coast is what provides part of the charm and what most people visiting out area seem to enjoy, the peace and serenity. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. We always appreciate renter feedback.
A guest from Sonora, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2014 Lovely view. The furniture is just adequate, beds were a little uncomfortable, but If the price was a little more reasonable, I would go back again and again. At those prices I can only afford one trip a year.
A guest from Hilton Head Island, South Carolina recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014 The Bellagio home at Irish beach was a place surrounded by the best of Mother Nature. The view is breath taking the smell of ocean and flowers intoxicating the breeze delightful a wonderful place to recharge your body and soul. It was our first visit and we have booked another! The house was comfortable and well equipped cooks dream kitchen with a Wolf range and a view up the sweep of beach to the point arena lighthouse felt like I was in Giada's kitchen. The staff at Irish Beach Rentals were the best overall I can't think of one real negative ....go relax and be grateful!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Thanks so much for the great review Greg and Diane! We're so happy you enjoyed your stay. Isn't the kitchen lovely, I think Giada would even be impressed. ;) See you next time. -Franchesca
20+ years of Irish Beach rentals and still coming back!
Daniel H. from Castro Valley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2014 We fell in love with Irish Beach on our first visit in '91. The management team is friendly, easy to work with and the properties are always clean and well maintained. Although we've stayed at many Irish Beach properties over the years we're currently enjoying our stays at the Bellagio house. With grown children we make it an annual destination with close friends as the two bedroom layout is perfect for two couples. Already looking forward to our next visit.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Looking forward to your next visit Mr. Hand! Happy Days, Kim
A guest from Reno, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2014 Nice Property with wounderfull location and views.Property could use a bit of maintance though (paint and deep cleanning.Overall a great place to vacation and relax.
Janice C. from Waterford, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2014 If you need a peaceful getaway, this is the place. The sound of the surf, the view, the ocean air. The home is very comfy and the kitchen very well stocked with pots,pans,utensils and such. The only drawback is the mattresses on both the beds are in need of replacement. They have bad dips and I ended up having to sleep in the center hump to get comfortable. I did speak to the office about that. That said....this place is great.
A guest from Placerville, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2013 Yes, we would recommend this house with a few "except for" comments. We had a very relaxing week, beautiful ocean and amazing sunsets. The views were a delight. Hot tub was perfectly located to watch the waves and sunsets. The house had pretty much everything we needed except for some consumable kitchen goods like foil and plastic wrap, baggies, etc. I agree with others that the beds are too soft, like sleeping in mush! Be aware of that if you have back problems. Everything in the home was surface clean, but we were a bit amazed to find that the home was in need of a good old-fashioned DEEP cleaning. And apparently there are some electrical issues, as we had a breaker trip when we turned on a light in the master bath. All in all, a great location, with Mendocino and Ft. Bragg to the north, Point Arena and Gualala to the south. The grocery store in Manchester (2 miles south) had everything we needed, plus many treasures!
Melinda S. from San Anselmo, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 We loved our short stay at the Bellagio house in Irish Beach and only wish we could've enjoyed more gorgeous sunsets in the cozy living room...Even with the fog, we loved our stay in the house, the top-end kitchen made cooking a joy, and the proximity to H128 gave us plenty of sunny apple picking and wine-tasting options just 45 minutes away. We'd definitely come back!
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at the lovely Bellagio house and our area. Looking forward to your returning visit. Barbara
A guest from Sacramento, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2013 The view from the deck was terrific! Loved the updated kitchen. A/C didn't work too well to cool off the house on a hot afternoon, tho.
A guest from Aurora, CO. recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in September, 2013 This was the 2nd time we stayed at Bellagio and we stayed for 9 nights. We have already booked it for next year, so obviously we love it. Romantic, quiet, good location, and first class amenities. The only issue is the bed and pillows which are way to soft for us. It is a matter of taste, but we feel that it is like sleeping on a marshmallow. That though did not stop us from getting a solid night of sleep every night we were there. Wonderful rental house!
A guest from Roseville, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2013 This vacation was out honeymoon, and I can say honestly was the perfect get choice for us to start our marriage off right. By far one of the quietest and peaceful spots on the ocean front
Nannette J. from Redding, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 The property was like being at home. We were very comfortable and relaxed. The Views were spectacular! Looking forward to our next vacation there in the near future!!!!
John S. from Winters, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 Excellent place to stay. The photo did not exactly reflect how close we were to the ocean or our access to it but it was fine. I suggest you turn down the hot water heater. Master toilet would run occasionally. Master shower controls were difficult. But overall, we loved this place. We would love to stay there again. Thank you!
Harry D. from Cumberland, MD. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2013 We have rented from Irish Beach Realty for 15 years and are extremely happy with them. Prevo and Bellagio are beautiful houses! Irish Beach realty has been wonderful to work with. In the event there was a problem they fixed it right away. Thank you for everything!
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Ahhh Harry, you're such a fav of this Office! See ya next year. Kim
A guest from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013 We had a wonderful stay at Bellagio. The view is fantastic - as long as the lot next door remains empty! State-of-the-art kitchen with everything you need. Hot tub overlooking the beach. Seemed to be an extra table/chairs in the living area that made it overcrowded with furniture, but hopefully they are not there permanently - as they are not in the photos on the website. Otherwise, a nicely renovated, comfortable home.
Debbie M. from Bellflower, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2013 The vacation was great. The location of the house is perfect! We were able to stand on the desk and see whales pass by on three of our five day stay. We also loved seeing the deers each morning and night in the yard.
A guest from Kendal, Cumbria recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2013 We spent 4 nights at the Bellagio during our recent two week trip to California. The house is beautiful and very well equiped. the two main bedrooms are great, the sofa bed in the lounge is less comfortable (there were 6 of us) but ok. The views are stunning and I would really recommend it.
rochelle b. from tracy, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in February, 2013 We have stayed here at the Bellagio in Irish Beach a few times. Always a great stay. The brand-new kitchen is AMAZING to cook in. the master bath shower is huge and beds are comfortable. Privte access to the beach is also a great plus! No fighting for public parking. Overall a GREAT relaxing vacation spot.
A guest from Santa Rosa, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2013 Bellagio is a very comfortable stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Good Morning Patrice, We're wondering if your stay at Bellagio was NOT to your liking and if so, is there anything we can do to make your next stay more enjoyable? We ask because you gave us a very poor review? Thank you and have a fabulous day! Kim
A guest from Geyserville, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2012 Great cozy home. Always something new at the house. The hot tub was a problem this time. Garbage & wheelbarrow n the bushes and we had to chase the large cover 2 times as it blew away n the wind cuz the strap doesn't fit. Not so fun for us. The girls n the office rock! We will be back. Not our first stay, not our last! Love Irish Beach. This house works for us
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Mr. and Mrs. Micheli,We love it when you come visit us! Sorry, about that darn hot tub lid. The storms have been crazy windy lately. New straps AND locks have been installed on all spas. The gardner apologizes for leaving his wheel barrow and items under the bushes. He planned to return to finish his To Do List as soon as you departed. :-) Happy Holidays!!
January K. from Portola Valley, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2012 The house is great. This was our 5th(?)Thanksgiving in this house.We were dissapointed by how dirty the Jaccuzzi was. The water was unfiltered and there was a sand on the bottom of the jaccuzzi. We did not use it because it was dirty. The kids were bummed out...
John W. from Sutter Creek, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2012 The view is spectacular from this home. Not another property comes close! Spa was wonderful. Kitchen is fabulous. However, this home needs to have a deep cleaning. Overhead fan, carpets, under beds, light bulbs burned out and one dimmer doesn't function since last year and heater in master bath does not work. We left a list when we turned in the keys. We do not feel that the housecleaner is responsible for doing this thorough cleaning. It takes at least 2 people to moved beds, shampoo carpet etc. There was quite a bit of trash on the property and surrounding the trash cans. We picked up around the property but not the trash cans. Like we said, this is a primo home with a view. The rest of the property should be primo as well. We look forward to being there next year. John Walser
A guest from Fremont, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2012 Had a great stay at the Belagio beach house. The views were incredible! The beds were very confortable, the kitchen had everything you needed. We were inconvinienced a couple of times due to repairmen repairing the fridge, and replacing shower door. Other than that I recomend anyone to stay at this house, it is a must!
Janice C. from Waterford, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2012 I love this home. The view can't get much better than this home has. Very comfortable furniture and beds. Kitchen is well stocked and has been updated with new appliances. It is one of the best homes at I.B. We also love the Prevo so you might want to check that out also. :)
A guest from Clear Spring, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2012 Gorgeous views. The property in general is fabulous. A few things need some attention (windows that won't stay open without propping). But the view more than makes up for it. We had a maintenance issue (broken shower door) that was taken care of and cleaned up right away. Management is super easy and delightful to deal with. I'd highly recommend to everyone. An absolutely fabulous place - we'll be back!
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency New shower door is on order, complete with rain shower glass. :-) Bellagio is a fav of mine and I'm glad that you enjoyed it, as well. Happy Days, Kim
A guest from Aurora, CO. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2012 Wonderful place to stay!We have rented vacation houses in Irish Beach before and this house is the best, we will be back next year!
Lori B. from Nampa, ID recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2012 We really loved our time at Irish Beach! The Bellagio house is really beautiful and the view is outstanding! We also enjoyed the hot tub and the gas fireplace after a day roaming the beach! But I have to say the view had serious competition. The feather mattress topper on the bed was heavenly, it was like cuddling down into a cloud each night!
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Lori,We are so thrilled that you had a great stay at the Bellagio home. Please consider us for your vacation needs when you are down visiting from Nampa once again. Happy Days, Kim
Rob B. from Los Angeles, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2012 We've been to Irish Beach a few times before - but this was by far the best experience. The location of Bellagio is perfect. Much more private than we had even hoped for. The hot tub was a perfect 102 when we arrived and we used it often every day of our stay. The view is outstanding - and we had deer visit us every evening. what a sight! My family loves to cook - and the kitchen at Bellagio is fantastic. All new hi end appliances. We indulged in making wonderful meals and only ate out once (a day trip to Mendocino). Our entire stay in a word was...Amazing!
Elaine M. from Mount Hope, Kansas recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 The stay at the Bellagio certainly enhanced our vacation significantly!! We enjoyed the ocean view and the sunsets including during meals at the table given the whole backside of the home has open glass views of the ocean. The hot tub was very much enjoyed as was the BBQ grill. The kitchen was very impressive with it appliances and overall look. While there were homes near us, it was a very quiet area. The location is somewhat remote so getting groceries or eating out is a bit of a drive and winding roads are part of getting to this area but they are very scenic.
A guest from Berkeley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2012 We were a group of 6 and had rented this place for a weekend to just relax and have fun. The location of this house is is right on the cliff facing the ocean. The property was also very maintained and was very clean. The hot tub overlooking the ocean was very relaxing. The kitchen was well equipped with everything that we needed. The TV and the ipod docks were great for playing music. The only complain we had is that the beds are not comfortable. One of the queen sized mattress had weird slopes which hurt our back. But overall, it was definitely an awesome weekend!
Kindra W. from Elk Grove, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2012 This was our second year at the Bellagio and it was just as wonderful as last year if not more with the new remodeled kitchen! Deer in the yard every day, sunny days on deck, beautiful sunsets and hot tubbing at night. What more can you ask for? Has everything you need and you have to love the walk in shower in the master bedroom. One caution, looks like a new house is going to be put in next door, while it won't block the view, it could ruin your vacation if massive construction is going on so you might want to check on that!
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Kendra,So happy that you love Bellagio. WooHoo! It's one of my favs, as well. The owner owns the lot next door and she is working on septic drainage issues. No construction in site :-)
10 Year Anniversary Trip to Irish Beach, Bellagio House
Jessica R. from Folsom, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2012 We had a wonderful experience at Bellagio House. We have a brand new baby girl and we were looking for a way to celebrate our anniversary that would allow us to enjoy just staying in one place. We booked this house for the hot tub and the view, which we knew we could enjoy while she napped. It did not disappoint! The house was big enough for all of us and all our stuff, but not so large as to be overwhelming. The remodeled kitchen was a real joy to use, which is good, because we brought our own food to save a little money and avoid the hassle of going out with a little baby. What a wonderful, relaxing vacation!
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Happy 10th Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Rose! So happy to read that you enjoyed your stay at the Bellagio home. Please keep your eyes peeled for the SUPER SPECIAL deals for our returning guests. Happy Days!
A guest from Palos Verdes Estates, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2012 Great location and view from bluff above the ocean. The house was excellent for our needs. The kitchen was well appointed and the barbecue and hot tub worked without any problems. This is a rural area with very limited dining options unless you drive several miles north toward Elk, Albion and Mendocino.
A guest from Hernando, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in April, 2012 We love the wonderful location, upgraded kitchen appliances/fixtures, and great beds; still wish for new bathroom faucets (hard to turn handles with soapy hands) and new master shower fixtures. Same time as last year (late April-early May) & need sun shade for high circular window at afternoon TV sports time. The other sun shades are great.
A guest from Elk Grove, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2012 The house, property and location was beautiful. The spa was not totally clean when we got there and by the time we used it for the first time, it became quite cloudy. We looked for chlorine but could not find any. Leaving some available would be helpful. Other than that, we had a wonderful stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Mary,We apologize for the spa condition. Please know that we have refunded your Spa Maintenance Fee. Did you receive the DVD that we mailed back? ;-) Hope to see you again. Happy Days, Kim
A guest from Seattle, WA. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2012 Be prepared to bring EVERYTHING you will need for cooking other than the pots and pans. There isnt any spices or condiments available, not even olive oil. Also dont forget foil and things of that nature. Beware of all the extra costs that come along with this rental as well. Other than that the place was wonderful except the septic system sometimes would waft smell to the hot tub! Sometimes it was a buzz kill. The place is beautiful and in a great location.
A guest from Fremont, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2012 My wife and I had a wonderful vacation. This is the spot to come and relax. The view from the hot tub is priceless. We both love to cook and cooking with the view from the kitchen is a definite plus. We will be back again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Isn't that brand new kitchen simply amazing?! We cannot wait for you to visit again, Mr. & Mrs. Armijo. Happy Days, Kim
Alissa B. from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2011 We enjoyed our recent stay at the Bellagio immensely. The 180 degree panoramic ocean views are amazing and it was so relaxing to listen to the ocean roar at night. The house has neighbors, but it felt very private. I had a lot of fun cooking in the gourmet kitchen and the king size bed was incredibly comfortable. The hot tub was super clean and perched right on the cliff overlooking the waves. We had plans to visit Mendocino Village during the day, but the house was so nice we decided to stay put and just relax! My family hopes to be back soon!
John W. from Sutter Creek, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2011 We had a wonderful vacation. Very relaxing. Cooking in this beautiful kitchen was a delightful part of this trip. We could cook and sip wine while viewing the ocean. we will be back again. The Walsers
David E. from Martinez, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2011 Once again we stayed at our favorite house on Irish Beach and loved it. The kitchen had just been remodeled and we were the first rental to get to use it. The new kitchen is beautiful, the cabinets are very nice. All the appliances are a huge improvement;loved cooking on the new Wolf range and the dishwasher was a big improvement. Unfortunately whoever designed the layout of the kitchen did a horrible job. The breakfast "nook" is a major swing and miss. Not only is it a waste of space, the large table (way too large for the space) did not allow access to the fridge and the large bench was inaccessible and useless (only a ten year old child would be able to fit between the table and the bench). Cabinet pull outs were impossible to use because they did not clear the fridge handles. My favorite was the spice rack above the stove which was inaccessible from any angle due to the hood over the stove. My suggestion would be to get rid of the table in the kitchen, that would greatly increase accessibility to things important, like the fridge. Don't get me wrong, I love the improvements as a positive thing, it is just a kitchen I would not want in my home. The biggest miss is the new gas fireplace. I've seen other gas fireplaces that were nice but this one is not. It might be that the gas is propane but a blue flame, really! Doesn't look much different than the inside of a gas barbecue. It was also installed poorly and doesn't fit the existing fireplace very well. Don't expect to sit around a cozy fire! I'd much rather have a real fireplace. Again, I love staying at this house, will probably return again, and will recommend it to anyone. The next improvement I would suggest is the living room couch.
A guest from Nevada City, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011 I have to say that the pictures did not do this rental justice ... we all felt the quality exceeded our expectations. We picked this home because of the promise of a ocean view, and we were not disappointed. We found the home to roomy enough for 6 adults and able to meet all of our needs. The sleeper couch though, was most uncomfortable ... we had to move the mattress to the floor each night ... luckily we brought a memory foam, as the mattress was pretty thin. It would probably be fine for small children ... I wouldn't recommend for adults. As stated in reviews we read before deciding to rent, we also found all the faucets to be a bit of a problem ... especially the master bath shower. Be careful not to scald yourself ... we also found it helped to not use water else where in the house when someone is bathing. More towels would have been nice. We found some of the kitchen appliances to be fine, others not so much. If you love your coffee as we all do, bring your own coffee maker ... the one there gives your coffee an added flavor of plastic. Any of the problems we had were more annoyances than anything else ... we were able to made it all work and enjoyed ourselves so much that we would come again in spite of them. The private beach was great ... bring a kite :o)
A guest from Geyserville, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2011 We Really enjoyed the GREAT view and peacefulness. The ocean is minutes away & so beautiful. The home is cute and o so cozy. Appliances need updating but all work just hard to figure out. FUN & PEACEFUL.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency We are so glad you had a wonderful time. I agree, the Bellagio home is very cozy & comfortable. The owner will be updating the kitchen this Fall. Hope you can come back to enjoy.
A guest from Hernando, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in April, 2011 We love the location & fantastic view (several whale sightings right off the beach below), the comfortable beds, nice furnishings, & well-equipped kitchen. We eventually learned to use the water faucets & stovetop (older & a bit tricky to regulate). A minor problem with dishwasher was fixed promptly. This rental agency has always been responsive to any request/need.Definitely hope to return to Bellagio.
A guest from Waterford, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2011 I didn't like the gas fireplace at all. Like to have a nice natural fire at nite. the flames barely showed and were all in a straight line. Not attractive for romantic ambiance.
Great location and views, house needs some additional updating.
Sandra B. from Reno, Nevada does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2011 We have rented in the Irish Beach area for the past 3 years. This is the first at the Bellagio. The areas of the home that have been updated (living room furniture and floors) are very nice. However the kitchen needs some work. The faucet and appliances are old, european style which were great probably when the house was built. The dishwasher handle was broken so we couln't get the door to shut. The handyman looked at it and couldn't fix it either. So we did the dishes by hand. The kitchen tile floor has tiles coming up in various areas. Upon arrival we wanted to use the hot tub but it was filthy. We called asap and the handyman arrived on Monday to drain and clean. Some minor details but when you're on vacation you expect the place to be just as advertised and in working condition on all levels. The dining table chairs were filthy, almost afraid to sit on. The deck area, views and location are ideal.
A guest from Rocklin, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2011 If you like super soft beds, then this is the place for you. Well appointed kitchen, just wish there was at least one cupboard to store our dry goods (instead of on the counter). Beautiful setting overlooking the ocean and east access to the beach.
A guest from Huntington Beach, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2011 Overall...the home was lovely, with amazing views. Irish Beach is one of our favorite destinations.A couple suggestions to make future guests' stays, traveling from great distances, more pleasant:1. Your website promised two complementary bottles of wine...we only received one.2. It's the "little things" that make a stay quite nice. Not providing coffee filters seems "silly & cheap", when 100 of them costs $1.29. Also, making sure there are matches for lighting the grill would have been nice...or makeing sure the votive holders around the house actually had a votive in them. Once those were used, guests could refill on their own if they wanted to continue their use. We left our filters we bought there for future guests. Hopefully, they don't disappear and can be used by future guests.Not meaning to sound negative...we stay in a lot of rental properties and having to pay a damage fee, cleaning fee for the spa and cleaning fee for the house made us a bit disappointed when these "little things" were not there.
My wife and I had a wonderful time. The house was outstanding.
A guest from Beaverton, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2010 Our only issue was not with the house, but with the crapy internet. I would suggest removing it from the property description because the service was down our whole stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency The local internet provider went bankrupt.
Kim H. from Oakhurst, Calif recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in November, 2010 We've been vacationing on the coast for over 20 years, the last 8 years being at Irish Beach. I would have to say the Bellagio was by far the nicest home we've stayed in. Its simple, VERY CLEAN and has a lovely location. The people that helped me rent this perfect house for us were so helpful and so nice! We have told our friends about it..and we do plan on coming back next year.Thank youKim & Toni Hansen
David E. from Martinez, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2010 This is the second time that we rented this home. It is in a great location, the home is in nice condition and with comfortable furnishings. The kitchen is very well equipped (better than most). Beautiful deck with nice hot tub that has a great view of the beach and ocean. Very comfortable home!
Nancy S. from Santa Rosa, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2010 We had a wonderful 5 days & nights...mixed sun and morning fog so we got to use the hot tub, the fireplace, and the sunshades...we were always comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware so we made lots of good food. Played games. Read books. Walked daily on the beach. And watched whales too!
Sharon W. from Santa Rosa, California recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2010 The only negative was getting our van broken in to at the Stonesboro Beach Access parking lot(Manchster Beach access lot). May want to warn others of this. Sheriff states there has been a lot of break-ins around there lately.
Michelle A. from Los Molinos, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2010 Loved the property. We experienced a pipe leak and were unable to use the kitchen sink. "Barbara" from the office was so helpful with trying to move us and giving us the option to stay. We chose to stay at the Bellagio. It was the best.
A guest from Clayton, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2010 The house was very comfortable and exactly what we needed. We like staying somewhere where we are not bothered by housekeeping or staff,especially in the morning. The area is very peaceful and beautiful. Check-in is very simple. We have stayed here twice and hope to make it a yearly visit.
Jessica S. from Crescent Mills, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2010 We had a great stay at the Bellagio. It was a beautiful house with a beautiful view, especially from the hot tub. I think it was the best rental on Irish Beach Rd, it seemed to have a little more privacy than the others. It was a smaller house, which was nice, but I wouldn't recommend more than four adults unless you're all very close. The house was very clean and well kept, all the furniture was nice and new. It wasn't the most child friendly since there wasn't much of a yard and the cliff was not fenced off, but it was worth it for the beautiful view. Neighbors are very close by as they are for all rentals on the street, so it might not be for you if you're looking for privacy. Still, there were not very many people, (we went before Memorial Day weekend) and we usually had the whole, beautiful beach to ourselves thanks to the private beach access. Would highly recommend for the unbeatable view.
Ed and Mary B. from Westford, MA. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2010 We've stayed here twice and we can't wait to come back again. All the comforts of home, but better! Great location for a quiet, peaceful, relaxing vacation. Absolutely perfect in every way.
Jim & Robyn F. from Chico, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2010 We had a wonderful time staying in Irish Beach at the Bellagio house. The location was very convenient for the area and the view was stunning. I would highly recommend staying here and enjoying Mendocino.
Roger R. from Sacramento, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2010 Everything for the most part was great. A few problems. Door from master bedroom to outside and door from kitchen to outside could not be opened. Master bathroom exhaust fan did not work. Unvented bathrooms require this. The gas stove in the kitchen intermittently would not light. The right front burner seemed to be the worst. We loved the location and the furnishings and of course the view. Thanks
Sydney W. from Carmichael, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2009 Our Stay at Bellagio was a wonderful time for our family to slow down, reconnect, regroup and build memories! It was a wonderful time. Our only complaint, it went by much too fast! We will return!!!
David E. from Martinez, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2009 We have stayed at two other houses on Irish Beach and we liked Bellagio the best. It seemed to be more updated than the others, and we really liked the view and location best. The kitchen was nicely stocked with appliances and utensils, but was probably the only part of the house that has not been updated. The furniture was beautiful and nicely coordinated (not just a collection of old hand-me-downs)The beds were also very nice and comfortable. The hot tub had a fantastic ocean view. The house was smaller than the others we have rented, we were four adults and found it quite comfortable. It might be a little tight for larger families.
Rick B. from Kentfield, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2009 What an amazing place to stay and relax...great deck, great hot tub, nice bedrooms and kitchen...the only thing that i would say needs improvment is the telescope (not a very good one at all) and the addition of screens on the doors and windows...we had a lot of flies in the house...a lot!Thanksrick
Donald S. from Cool, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2009 Direct tv remote switch was broken, after some effort, disassembled it and put switch in correct position, need to order new one.Dishwasher did not clean glasses, and other loads. found bottom rack missing wheels in front, jerry rig dishwasher so bottom bottom rack was not jamming wash wand. finally got clean plates and glasses. I enjoyed house, lovely locationjust needs repairs to be completed. Would rent it again, if I received a discount for problems we had.
Mary Ann B. from Modesto, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2009 The house could have been a bit cleaner, the kitchen floor was sticky and I had to mop it first thing. Also, some of the dishes were still dirty but in the cupboard (food stuck on them!) Other than that it was wonderful!
A guest from San Diego, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2009 We hope to return in the future. The view, the home interior, the private beach, the spa overlooking the ocean---too beautiful for words.
A guest from Palo Alto, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2009 Some minor points:- need steps to hot tube that do not slip on wet wood- master bedroom toilette wastes much water (handle)- updated info about local restaurants, food shopping- great wine
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Toilet has been repaired
Rob J. from Bellevue, WA. recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2009 We had such an amazing time at the Bellagio. We didn't want to leave ! The property managment was so professional, trusting and nice. Which is rare anymore. We loved the entire experience..and highly recomend Irish beach Properties to everyone. We will be back !
Michele V. from Rocklin, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2009 The place was very relaxing and peaceful and clean.The photos are dead on as far as location/view/furnishings. We did have some noisy neighbors one night, but other than that it was nice and quiet. I was however, very disappointed there were no wine bottles awaiting our arrival as posted on the website when making reservations. And when the front porch light went out making it difficult to enter past dusk, the technician was unavailable to come out and fix it. We made due with cellphone lights as we unlocked the doors after our day filled hikes. Other than that, there were no significant complaints.
Nathan B. from Simi Valley, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2009 I'm one who takes these surveys seriously, so every 5 star rating I gave is a true 5 star rating. My family thoroughly enjoyed the Bellagio cabin. Located right on the cliff overlooking the ocean with a large wrap-around deck and hot tub made for an incredible spot to sit and watch the spectacular California sunsets. The interior looks great too with the upgraded flooring, new furniture, big flat-screen TV, and roomy walk-in shower in the master bath. One of the highlights of the stay was all the wild black tail deer that frequent the grounds. A very enjoyable experience.
A guest from Durham, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2009 Open the front door & wow, the view takes one's breath away. What a view to wake up to every morning. Nicely furnished & liked the fact it wasn't cluttered. Great house for 4, crowded for any more. Very comfortable & would defintiely rent again.
Victor d. from Sacramento, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in January, 2009 We love the area of the coast around Irish Beach. The Bellagio has a great location and fantastic view. The hot tub is located perfectly.Conditions in the Bellagio are, overall, good. However, there was a problem with the garbage disposal; the repairman indicated that it had somehow become unbalanced. The over system in the kitchen is complex to use and could be upgraded. I had a very unpleasant experience on the beach when I was attacked by the poodle belonging to a man that owns a home on the road down to the beach. After that we did not go down to the beach again. For the sake of visitors, the dog, and the dogs owner that situation MUST be permanently corrected.
Taft P. from Chico, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2008 The owner offering us wine is a great extra. The house and view are exceptional. The cleaning service however needs to leave kleenex and paper towels. This has happened before. There were no extras in the house and what was there was used in the first day. It seems kind of cheap given the cost and the cleaning cost.
Chip M. from Orangevale, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2008 Nicely remodeled, comfortable, great location, and very well equipped. Complimentary wine is very much appreciated.
There were a few things in need attn-- i. e. the kitchen sink faucet needs to be tightened. But hopefully the mgt will take car
Tim and Dee C. from San Rafael, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2008 The owner has really done a fabulous job of updating. The furniture is very tasteful, the views will stop your heart! Imagine cooking at a stove where you look for six miles down a sandy beach at a lighthouse! To die for! And to have the same great view from the perfect hot tub! I almost hate to say too much because we will have a hard time getting the place again when we want to rent it! But, honestly. You really won't be disappointed in this property.
William K. from Kelseyville, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2008 Our recent six day stay at your Bellagio house included two older couples, my wife and I from Lake County, CA and our good friends from Madison, WI. Our friend from Madison is recuperating from a series illness and we knew that our wonderful California North Coast would be just what the doctor ordered for her. We were not disapointed. Our friends hated to leave. The house was perfect for two to four people, and everything was in excellent condition. we also appreciated the wine that was waiting upon our arrival.Thanks for a wonderful stay.WRK
Ed and Mary B. from Westford, MA. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2008 This home was probably built in the early eighties. There is no central heating, only a fireplace and three space heaters. There have been no improvements to date. The carpet was stained. The windows were mostly inoperable. The furniture was old and dated, although the beds were extremely comfortable. The home is slated for a much needed overhaul. After driving from San Francisco to Fort Bragg via coastal route 1, I would say that this is hands down the best location in Northern California for a vacation on the water. The house is located directly on a cliff, on the water. The views can?t be beat. It is located at the end of a cul-de-sac and is in a very quiet area. There isn't much need to leave if you stock the fridge with food. Just stay there and relax. Driving anywhere will turn into an all day affair and leave you wondering why you left such a nice spot anyway. The restaurants are few and far between and charge high prices for mediocre food. The best place to buy groceries is in Fort Bragg at the only real ?super? market within 100 miles. There is a small market four miles south, but the drive to Fort Bragg is well worth it. My stay was during the first three days of May. We had perfect 70 degree sunny days. Overall, I would recommend this house to anyone as the rates were very competitive and reasonable.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Bellagio has been remodeled recently and all new hardwood floors have been installed. All rooms in the house have been painted, beautiful andirondack deck furniture has been provided, plus all new interior living room furniture, flat screen plasma tv, iPod dock station and central heating with gas fireplace. This Fall the kitchen will receive a complete remodel. Please come again and enjoy all of the improvements that Bellagio has to offer.
A guest from Sedona, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2008 We liked everything about the location and the house in general. However we found the electric heaters to be an inefficient and wastful way to heat the house.
Property Manager Response: Response from Irish Beach Rental Agency Hi Deanne, Thanks to your renter review, Bellagio has now installed central heat and a gas fireplace. Would love for you to return to Bellagio and soak in all of the upgrades. Happy Days!
Joy M. from Auburn, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2007 When you walk in the front door and see the back wall of windows and the ocean view it takes your breath away. WOW!!
A guest from Sacramento, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2007 The Good The location of this home is probably it's most appealing feature. The view from the deck is awesome. The hot tub on the deck was in great shape and functioned well. As a nice touch the owner provided a bottle of excellent wine for the guests.
The Not So Good The rental management originally charged more than the quoted rate but amended the billing when brought to their attention. The interior of the home was adequately furnished but there were problems with the functioning of one of the showers and a lack of adequate hot water for 4 guests. The on-site maintenance manager was extremely responsive and helpful in trying to address the noted shortcomings.
If the shortcomings were fixed I would probably recommend this property, but there are others similarly situated in Irish Beach that are less expensive and offer the same amenities.
A guest from Santa Clara, CA. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2007 For safety concerns, there are no hand railings at the main entrance on granite floor and steps. My husband loves to do water color and I love to sew, knit. We work full time and still manage to be very generous people with our time for freinds, family, elder care etc. Living in the bay area since the 1950's and seeing Santa Clara Valley become Silicon Valley has been ever more a challenge to enjoy our love of art when the demands are high living there and the interruptions seem to never stop, until we leave. I could not locate a card table stored for the benefit to use either for sewing, water color etc. Fortunately, we did bring one of our own, but it would be nice to find one there to use. Because Irish Beach is strictly a residential only environment,is why we return to pick up where we left off. We do not want to go anywhere else the whole time we are there, we want to savour the real experience of being away from it all and to only see, hear and smell the ocean. One of the incredible bonus that we were so lucky to witness, was a hawk that held absolute steadfast in flight waiting for the perfect moment to drop straight down to earth and catch his breakfast. This bird of prey literally hung in the sky motionless for about 15 minutes. An incredible sight to see while we had coffee on the deck. We love to cook and enjoy wine and we would go out to the deck and watch for shooting stars and this too is so unusual to see in the bay area. We watched storms move in and then gorgeous the next day. We discovered the love of trying to launch stunt kites against the wind on Irish beach and laughing at ourselves of how much practice it will take to perfect this adventure. We hope that we can come back and pick up where we left off for our much needed respite.
Austin E. from Herriman, UTAH recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2007 We have stayed in this house twice. The view alone is worth the trip. We love the deck and hot tub. You wont be disappointed!
