About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

It's the perfect time of year to take a break and rejuvenate. We have the perfect location and home for you.

This 2800sf oceanfront home, located on the California coast North of San Francisco and the wine country, offers spectacular ocean views, soothing ocean sounds, awesome sunsets, excellent wave and aquatic viewing and an opportunity to unplug from everyday life.

The living room/dining areas as wells as the ocean side patio are each nearly 1000 sq ft and perfect for an intimate wedding, reception, anniversary or other significant events in life.

Flying enthusiasts will enjoy the convenience of the local airstrip, golfers can experience coastal golfing, fishermen can seek adventure with chartered fishing trips, children will enjoy tide pooling and lovers can stroll the long stretches of local beaches.

The golfing enthusiast will enjoy a round of golf on this unique golf course designed by Larry Hughs. This 9 hole, 33 par, 110-slope rating golf course starts at the Community Center at the south end of the run way and surrounds the air strip. The distance between holes ranges between 135 and 477 yards. Views of the ocean and local animal life are just a few distractions you might find while playing a round on this course. Currently this golf course is on the honor system as there is no Pro Shop available. There are three sets of clubs (two with cart) at Seadance for an impromptu round of golf.

For pilots wishing to fly their personal aircrafts to Shelter Cove, there is an airstrip for day use. Please see our website for airstrip links.

Fishermen looking for an exciting day on the Pacific currently have local charter boat operations available to help you catch a fish the size you won't need to exaggerate to your friends.

Within a short walk you can tour the Cape Mendocino Lighthouse at the Mal Coombs Park, take the stairs down to search tide pools at low tide, watch Sea Lions at Seal Rock Picnic Area, or watch Abalone divers from the balcony or back yard in the cove directly behind the house.

A short scenic drive through Shelter Cove and you can hunt for shells, the perfect rock, watch the magnificent wave’s crash on rock outcroppings, and walk down the long expanse of Black Sand Beach.

Looking for a beautiful backdrop to celebrate your wedding, reception or anniversary banquet; Seadance is suitable with 1,000 Sq Ft of open space inside as well as 1,000 Sq Ft of patio space outside.

Perfect Family Get-away

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for the second year in a row. We had 9 adults and 3 kiddos and fit well. There are only 3 bedrooms, but the open floor plan of the living area has 2 couches and plenty of cot room. Upstairs is another pull-out couch, so as long as the younger ones don't mind a lack of having a door, it works very well. The kitchen is super well stocked for everything you need with spices and kitchen utensils. As stated earlier, the open floor plan down stairs made family dinners so nice (we used the pop-up table under the stairs as the kid's table). What we truly enjoy the best has to be the grand patio in the back on the cliff side for relax and nightly smores cooking at the fire pit. The ocean waves calmed us all.

They did add wi-fi (I think I was the only one disappointed with that one), but most of the family appreciated being able to keep up to date with messaging and emails -- I highly encourage you to hide the password and be unplugged in Shelter Cove for your trip but to each their own!

The only bummer was that my husband went to the trash drop-off too early in the cleanup process, so we were charged $50 our of our deposit for the extra trash bags, but as long as you prep ahead and cart all the trash out this is a fabulous spot for a family getaway.

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We had the best stay at this breathtaking beach home. Everything you could possibly need is at the home. The only challenge is the drive to get there just be prepared for a windy longer ride. It IS worth it!!! Who knew there were beautiful black beaches here in California? Exploring the quaint town, we discovered seals and other wild life. If you are looking for place to relax and unplug, this is the place!!!

Great Stay! Beautiful location....

  • 5 of 5

All the kitchenware we needed was provided and we loved the dvd/video selection for our nightly movie! Owner might consider installing downstairs blinds. We had several beautiful sunny days and we couldn't enjoy the seating area and its view next to the windows because the sun shines right into the house (and our eyes) for most of the afternoon and early evening. Otherwise, wonderful property set on the bluffs above a magnificent sea!
