About the property

3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, Great Room Living on Shelter Cove's Rugged Shore

Sitting on the rugged shore of Shelter Cove, with unparalleled coastal views, this is the SeaSide Splendor that your vacation calls for. Enjoy the sit-down ocean views from every angle in the open great room. View stunning sunsets from inside or step out onto the expansive deck for a broad, multifaceted experience of the oceanfront evening (hear the cries of seagulls and the barking response of local sea lions). Retire to the well-appointed kitchen to prepare your dinner with the fresh seafood that you caught on your chartered fishing trip this morning (don’t forget the abalone!). With three bedrooms, two and a half baths, plus the large ocean view bonus room, this vacation home provides plenty of space to savor your coastal getaway. The home sleeps 6-8 comfortably. We will consider extra guests. If your 4 legged family members don't want to stay home, talk to us. We occasionally consider well behaved, house trained pups for an extra cost. Let the SeaSide Splendor call you back to Shelter Cove.

Tranquil oasis from the busy noisy city

  • 5 of 5

Could not have asked for a better place to stay to enjoy surfing, fishing and good friends in a beautiful location. Perfect for us 30 year olds who wanted a chance to get away from it all for a while and play in the outdoors.

The only thing I will say is while we were tide pooling off the back deck, we did get a stern talking to by one of the neighbors two houses over from the left who was not thrilled with tourists tide pooling in "his" backyard. I would not call tis a deterrent, just an observation of a grumpy person living in a small town where tourists often come and go.

Definitly recommend this place to all. Thanks Verna!

This oceanfront house is a very special rental house. With its well-equipped kitchen, lovely decor, and attention to detail, our one-week stay was so enjoyable and comfortable. It felt like home except for one thing: the ocean view was magnificent! It was so entertaining to watch the moods of the ocean as well as the variety of birds, whales, animals, and sea life happening just beyond our deck. The area is so scenic and serene with friendly locals an added plus. Our visit to Shelter Cove was made so much more enjoyable by Verna and Eric, friendly and delightful local couple who work with the home's owner in making this house such a terrific place to stay. This was our first stay at this house, and we hope it won’t be our last!

Beautifully appointed

This home had more amenities than most homes of this type. Great location, right on the water and a stunning view of the ocean. We will definitely return. I can't think of a thing that would have made our stay more enjoyable.

Gorgeous Seaside Views!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this property. My wife and I LOVE Shelter Cove, and this is about the best they have to offer! Sunset on the back deck is a must. If staying the right time of year, you can catch a glimpse of whales in the distance. This house is a short walk to the local deli, coffee shop, pizza place, lighthouse, and tidal pools.

Home is beautifully decorated, with comfortable beds, large kitchen, and games in the garage!

We will definitely be returning.

Car: recommended

Our oceanfront home, located on the California coast North of San Francisco and the wine country, offers unparalleled ocean views, stunning sunsets, and both the lulling sounds of ocean waves and the excitement of higher winter surf. Watch the whale migration from the deck (you can hear the whales exhale -- you are so close). The juxtaposition of relaxation and invigoration that accompanies a SeaSide view is inspirational.

For pilots wishing to fly their personal aircraft to Shelter Cove, there is an airstrip for day use.

The golfing enthusiast will enjoy a round of golf on Shelter Cove's golf links. This 9 hole, 33 par, 110-slope rating golf course begins at the Community Center at the south end of the run way and surrounds the air strip. You would be welcome, however, to begin your golf game on the 5th tee that is closer to our home -- just remember to pay your greens fee ($10 - honor system) when you reach the community center. The distance between holes ranges between 135 and 477 yards. Views of the ocean, mountains, and local flora and fauna are just a few distractions you might battle as you play. Currently this golf course is on the honor system ($10 per round).

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 ocean directly behind the house.

Enjoy a walk along Lower Pacific or adventure onto some of the new nature trails that the community has been blazing around the Cove.

Mountain Bike enthusiasts will be pleased with the recent addition of trails in the King's Range -- access points to which are just a brief drive back up the Shelter Cove Road.

Don't miss Black Sands Beach and the trailhead to the Lost Coast Trail. Stand on the beach and know that you are one of relatively few people in the world to see this view.

If you are here for multiple days, you might tear yourself away from the Cove for one of them in order to tour the Redwoods on the Avenue of the Giants, just a 45 minute drive away.

Finally, you are staying on the edge of the world. Turn off the outside lights at night and see stars as you might remember them from your childhood. They are gloriously bright. Use the telescope to explore the galaxy.
