STUNNING OCEAN FRONT HOME WITH PANORAMIC LOST COAST VIEWS AT SHELTER COVE, CA

Shelter Cove House Rental Photos and Description

3 bed, 2-1/2 bath, sleeps 7, Visa, Master Card, Discover & Debit cards accepted

Located north of SF and the wine country, this lovely home is situated 500 feet from the ocean on top of a bluff over looking Black Sands Beach in Shelter Cove, CA. Views include an unobstructed view of the ocean and coastline, forested mountains, black sand beaches and surf crashing on rocks and the beach below. From the deck are frequently observed sea otters, pelicans, and even whales. Beach access is only a 5 minute walk from the house. The house is fully furnished and appointed with a complete kitchen, two comfortable queen beds in 2 separate bedrooms, twin bunk beds in the 3rd bedroom; a comfy couch in the living room sleeps a 7th person. Satellite TV (DirecTV Total Choice). Entertainment center includes DVD player, surround sound theatre system, iPod compatible. Gas fireplace. Washer/dryer. Free local calling. The ocean community of Shelter Cove offers fishing, whale watching, dining, beachcombing, hiking and a 9 hole golf course.

'The View' : Mere words cannot describe the beauty and tranquility one sees and feels when they sit on the deck built off the top floor of 'The House' at Shelter Cove. 'Panoramic' is almost not descriptive enough. The ocean, the beach, the rocks, crashing waves, the mountains and stunning stretches all in one magical spot. Add music, your favorite beverage, the near perfect weather and then just relax, you are taking in 'The View'.

'The Redwoods': They are very tall, straight as an arrow, and as wide as a small house. These are the basic impressions one gets once they see these majestic trees. It does not stop there however, stretches you walk among these 1000 year old giants you never look at trees the same ever again. Only 30 minutes drive stretches 'The House,' the Dewitt grove offers some wonderful hiking and a good number of the massive trees to get your Redwood Tree exploration started. Head north on US 101 (from Redway) just 2 miles, then take the 'Avenue of the Giants' exit for the best Redwood Tree forest viewing anywhere.

'Big Black Sands Beach': The waves crash with tremendous force, the sand is black as night, the beach stretches for miles, you are standing on 'Big Black Sands Beach'. Beautiful, but this beach is for walking only, as the rip tide is deadly, so use caution around the water. A 1/2 mile north from the trailhead (only 1/4 mile from 'THe House'), are the stunning Kaluna cliffs and 1/4 mile to the South, the best climbing rocks (during the mid to low tides) in all the cove. The plumes of water shot from the waves hitting the rocks here can be incredible.

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5
I spent four nights in this house in mid-April, 2010. It's very comfortable with all the important amenities (no wi-fi, but there is satellite TV). The real highlight is the deck which overlooks Black Sand Beach and affords a near 180 degree view of the ocean. Grey whales were very close to the shore. Beach access is close to the house (a short drive to the parking lot) and then there's the hiking in the Lost Coast Range. I took the trail up to King's Peak and loved the views.

The owner was very responsive to all pre-rental inquiries, and the security deposit was returned in short time. You can't go wrong with this vacation rental.

Shangrila!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I met with our son and daughter-in-law and spent an incredible week at this clean, bright home. The views are indeed stunning -- so much so we never turned on the entertainment system. Between beach walking, pleine aire painting, enjoying the Cove's sights, but mainly surrendering to the ocean sunsets, the rhythm of the surf, we all rejuvenated and discovered the pleasures of NOT caring to be "connected 24/7" to the world. Between redwoods nearby, the surf, cliffs, birds, and sunflower meadow at the edge of our cliff abode -- we cannot wait to return again! A true pleasure!

Shangrila!

  • 5 of 5
We shared the home with son and daughter-in-law. The setting is just stunning! They did pleine aire painting, we did calligraphy and walked the nearby beach. No need for the excellent entertainment unit: never used it -- the home and locale are it! Stayed a week and left calm & rejuvenated.Only left once to tour Humbolt Redwood Park. Great General Store nearby, Intriguing lighthouse and Seal Rock in the Cove itself. Rooms were spacious, clean, bright, not stuffed with owner frufru. Would rerent in a heartbeat! Not for those who need to be "connected" 24/7 -- a great chance to reconnect to partners and -- yourself!

Gem within a Gem!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent a wonderful weekend in the hidden gem that is Shelter Cove. We were all extremely pleased to have stayed in this comfortable home. The kitchen was well stocked, the home was clean, and the view from the deck is magnificent.

The owner is gracious and was very helpful in answering questions we had. Security deposit was returned with no delay.

Overall a pleasant experience. My husband and I look forward to returning someday soon.

Beautiful Views, Clean, Spacious

  • 4 of 5
We loved the home, and the owner and property manager could not have been more accomodating. We were thrilled to find the home clean and well stocked for our needs. We would love to have had a King bed, as both men in our party are 6'4". Be aware that the main living area is upstairs, so the person sleeping on the lower level must be able to negotiate stairs. In order to use the washer and dryer, which I may add were GREAT, you must go through the downstairs bedrooms to reach the washer and dryer. Having said that, I would still highly recommend this home. Our only regret is that we did not have more days to stay and enjoy the home and the awesome views! We saw Whales, Deer, Dolphin, sea lions. We grilled on a wonderful charcoal grill. What's not to like???? Our deposit was returned promptly.

Owner's Response: Thanks Vivian,

My wife feels the same way about getting a King sized bed in the master bedroom, maybe next year. Glad to hear you enjoyed the stay.
