More about us

  1. Karen, when not engulfed by domestic demands, is an attorney and a barrister in England, where she was raised. Richard is now retired. We have three daughters 22 and 20 (both at university in York, England), and 15. They love swimming, soccer, tennis, volleyball, basketball and dressing up. Come to think of it, we do too (well, maybe not dressing up so much).

  2. We have 2 vehicles, a 2007 Honda Odyssey (seats 7) and a 2002 Ford Extended Cab pickup (seats 5) which are available to exchange. We prefer non-smokers. There are 2 dogs (who can be boarded out if need be) and 2 self-sufficient cats.

  3. We speak English, Français, Deutsch, Español and Italian

Where is it?


Buzzy restaurants
We are 4 miles from the historic town of Mendocino, which has many cultural attractions, shops, art galleries, theatre and good restaurants (Cafe Beaujolais, Mendo Cafe, Mendo Bakery, Moody's, Tote Fete, The Hotel, Little River Inn, etc.)
Spot of exercise
Being 4 miles inland means that we avoid 90% of the summer fog! We have 5 adult and some kid bikes for the easy ride into town. There are many lovely trails for walking and riding very close to the house. There are numerous state-maintained riverside trails for walking and cycling with world-class views.
Day tripping
Spectacular coastline and beaches nearby provide hiking and beach combing, as well as fishing, diving, surfing, skimboarding, and kayaking. Golf (9 hole), tennis and health club facilities are available nearby. San Francisco is 3. 5 hours away. Mount Shasta 5 hours. Lake Tahoe 8 hours.
