"When looking for a vacation rental company, we were diligent in our homework and looked into about every available option. We had just about given up hope when we came across Pacific Blue. We sat down with the owners and invited them to come and view the house.  

From the moment we met with them, they offered nothing but confidence and instilled that and their belief in their staff upon us. We had several concerns and wishes that we were adamant about with this being our family’s home.  They worked with us to make sure every little detail was addressed and brought to an agreeable resolution. 
We started our journey with Pacific Blue and could not have made a better choice! 
They have laid out a business and marketing plan that only has proven to be a success, but their impeccable ability to have such amazing reviews in an online world that can be far from fair, is even more impressive. 
Pacific Blue and their staff have honored our family’s requests and been attentive to the needs of our customers. The attention to detail and management of our family home has been flawless and unrivaled. The house is cleaned and maintained in spectacular condition after being solely in their hands for the past year. It is without question Pacific Blue is a standout in their field, and aim to be so much more. 
I plea with anyone looking to make their home a vacation rental to look to do business with a locally-owned small business that can offer so much more than any big vacation rental company. Without further ado, I cannot offer a higher review of a company than Pacific Blue!

"A huge thank you to Carlon, Steve and the entire team at Pacific Blue! They are a wonderful property management company who goes far above and beyond the call of duty. We cannot express enough how grateful we are for their services! They have helped us so much to navigate the rental market, and to manage our property from afar. 

Pacific Blue provides very personalized, customized service. There is no “nickel and diming” with their company as there is with corporate owned property management, and as local managers, the company is incredibly responsive to both us and our rental property guests. 
The housekeeping team is fantastic, and we have fabulous reviews from our guests thanks to the Pacific Blue team! They have exceeded all of our expectations with managing our rental, we recommend their services highly.

Meet The Pacific Blue Management Team

Carlon Cathey

A native of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Carlon Cathey’s first job was in his family’s interior design and furniture business. He inherited his family’s business values of hard work, high standards, and exemplary customer service, and he has brought this dedication to all of his endeavors, including Pacific Blue Vacation Rentals. His formidable administrative and technical knowledge and his staunch integrity make him uniquely qualified to fulfill your property management needs.

He has worked on the Mendocino Coast as a property manager for three years, and in that time, he has learned a lot about the challenges of property management and the benefits and drawbacks of different methods and approaches -- which is how the seeds for Pacific Blue Vacation Rentals took root. Thanks to his business background and strongly held values, Carlon realized that he could offer a vastly improved vacation rental management model. Together with his business partner, Stephen Dunlap, he runs Pacific Blue Vacation Rentals with an emphasis on:

Clear Communication, Stellar Customer Service, and a Steadfast Adherence to the Highest Standards.


Stephen Dunlap

Stephen Dunlap brings building know-how, a successful business background, and a high-energy and efficient approach to problem-solving to the table. With decades in the roofing industry, as well as experience in construction, gutters, and rental maintenance, he has the skillset to keep your customers happy and your accommodations top-notch.

Stephen has roots in St. Louis, Missouri, but he got his start in roofing in Ventura, California, in 1976. After four years in the industry, he started his own roofing business in 1980 before moving to Dallas, Texas, in 1985. While in Texas, he constructed mobile home parks and continued to work as a roofer. But California was calling, and he returned to Ventura in 1987, moving to Fort Bragg in 1988, where he resides to this day. He is the proud father of three grown boys (veterans of the Army, Coast Guard, and Air Force, respectively) and the devoted owner of Toby the Shiba Inu.

He expanded his successful roofing business, Dunlap Roofing, from the Mendocino Coast to Ukiah in 2004, and in 2010, he branched out to gutters. Between the two businesses and his coastal and Ukiah offices, he runs a fleet of 14 vehicles and oversees a staff of 18, enabling him to respond rapidly to his customers’ needs. Finally, in 2016, he branched into property management with his business partner, Carlon Cathey, establishing Pacific Blue Vacation Rentals. Throughout the years, he has perfected the skills needed to maintain a sturdy and sound home, ensuring that guests can rest easy in a comfortable and well-constructed vacation rental.

Homeowners and renters alike benefit from Stephen’s dedication to excellence and the highest standard of service.
