Guestbook comments from the owner
"Our stay here was just incredible. This was a perfect way for 4 sisters to be together to enjoy each other's company, stories, tears, and laughter. This gave us a chance to enjoy a little bit of heaven right here on this beautiful earth."

I've come to realize how much I enjoy enhancing the value of a home, so I now call myself a 'property manager'. My wife, Carol, is a first grade teacher and we also have 3 children who have young families in Calif. and Indiana. When I'm not playing with property design, I'm probably out training on my bike or reading or writing something. Owning this piece of 'Ocean Heaven', that we also get to enjoy, makes us feel deeply fortunate indeed.
We never planned, in a million years, to buy an ocean side property. Yet, one day after visiting at the nearby lighthouse, I expressed a long-held desire to 'just see inside' a house perched beside the Pacific. Within minutes a 'For Sale' sign appeared and we couldn't resist. We were knocked out by the view... and the price! It was not just a 'slice of the ocean'... but a panoramic view! Recovering several hours later, we started having 'Purpose of Life' conversations. Soon, the house was ours.
It's intimate and simple with many private spaces to savor. The Writer's Cottage below the lower patio is a world away.
