It’s vacation time! If you have finally carved some time out of your busy schedule to take that well-earned break, you are probably facing the daunting task of sifting through the myriad vacation rentals on the market. From Cabo to Hawaii and Costa Rica to the coast of sunny Florida, the options are endless and can be more than a little overwhelming. When your busy schedule simply won’t allow for a long-haul journey you may be stuck as to what to lock down—introducing our vacation rental Mendocino, Chateau Frolic, where peace, relaxation, and tranquility await, all on the majestic shores of the California North Coast.

Most all vacation rentals are researched, located, and booked online, meaning would-be vacationers are unlikely to step foot onsite until check-in. At Destinations in Paradise, we recognize that holiday time is an investment, and we hope that this blog serves as a virtual tour of what awaits you at our vacation rental Mendocino. From check-in to check-out you will be accompanied by our highly trained, attentive staff. Our property manager Elizabeth will greet you upon arrival and give you a guided tour. She will also be available throughout your stay to answer any questions that arise. Don’t want to cook? Our private chef is here to cater to your every craving (fees apply). Your home away from home will be cleaned daily (except on Sundays), and our staff are also ready and waiting to make any restaurant, activity, or tour reservation you may require.

Just a short 4-mile drive from the Mendocino town center, the 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom Chateau Frolic rests atop a rugged bluff with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. The villa features not one but two comfortable living areas and a separate media room fully equipped with the latest technology to ensure your time indoors is just as luxurious as your time outside. The house is equipped with Sonos surround sound, allowing you to pipe your favorite tunes through the indoor/outdoor living spaces. The architectural masterpiece also features a wine cellar, an art gallery, and a prized chef’s kitchen. Think everything from intimate dinners for two to larger-scale, private events.

When in Mendocino, taking advantage of the year-round 60-degree average temperatures in the great outdoors is an absolute must. Sip wine from the nearby Anderson Valley on the upper or lower wooden decks as you take in Northern California’s incredible sunsets. The vacation rentals landscaped gardens can be best appreciated from our cozy, outdoor hot tub, and why not enjoy a casual meal with your nearest and dearest by the easy-to-use gas BBQ? Regardless of how you choose to indulge, our vacation rental Mendocino offers all of the amenities you will need to make the most of your stay.

While Chateau Frolic is the kind of luxury haven you won’t want to leave, a little exploration is called for when away from home. The villa’s surroundings feature both vacation rentals and permanent residences, so the overall vibe is quiet, quaint, and very, very zen. Explore nearby hiking trails, quiet beaches, and bike rides, or visit the nearby Point Cabrillo Lighthouse for a panoramic view of what the area has to offer. Surfers will have their pick of local breaks and for wine lovers, the award-winning Anderson Valley region offers varieties that will delight even the pickiest of palettes. Local Mendocino Village is an artist's dream. Visit regional galleries, snack on artisanal delights, and be sure to indulge in the incredible experience that is local farm-to-table dining.

With all that Chateau Frolic and its surroundings have to offer, we guarantee your time away from the daily grind will have you refreshed, relaxed, and ready to book again!
