Welcome to Sandpiper cottage, a beautiful getaway only blocks from the beach. This cozy cottage sleeps up to 8 (6 adults) in 2 bedrooms and a sleeping alcove, with 1 ½ baths. You are sure to feel at home in this delightful blend of seashore art and knotty pine, (like a Tahoe cabin at the Beach) with skylights in the kitchen, a porthole window in the living room and a rowing oar railing on the stairs.
The cottage is in a quiet neighborhood filled with oaks and redwoods, a short, flat, 3-4 minute walk to Rio Del Mar Beach. After walking back from the beach, rinse off at the outdoor shower, then soak in the hot tub, underneath a giant oak tree, with the sweet smell of jasmine planted nearby. Then head to the front deck with new padded chairs, patio table, 9 foot umbrella, fountain, and gas barbecue to enjoy a comfortable, relaxed outdoor experience. There is 1-carport space off the alley in the back of the cottage and more space available on the street - no permits required. The bedroom upstairs has 1-Queen bed and a TV. The 2nd bedroom is downstairs with 1-Queen bed. The Full bath is next to this bedroom. There is also a 1/2 bath at this home. The sleeping alcove has two twin bunk beds for children to sleep. There is also a pull out queen sofa bed in the livingroom. No more than 6 adults are allowed to rent the cottage per new county guidelines
New windows were put in 9/2010, and a new flat screen TV was added to the living room in 2012. The rental includes beach towels, beach chairs, beach mats, a small beach cooler, 2 boogie boards, and sand toys. Have fun cooking in this fully equipped kitchen (microwave, dishwasher, blender, coffee maker, toaster, gas stove) with a table that seats 6 (with 8 chairs available).
There is also a large washer and dryer at the home. Enjoy the cozy Living Room with a wood burning stove, seating for 7 on 2 couches and a recliner, satellite flat screen TV, DVD player, stereo, iHome, and free wireless DSL internet service.
Take the short, flat stroll to Rio Del Mar beach, where you will find a coffee shop, a restored tavern, the Pixie Deli (with outdoor seating & BBQ), Cafe Rio (upscale restaurant), a fishing pier, cement ship (The Palo Alto), and Seacliff State Park Museum. Golf is nearby, as well as Nicene Marks State park, wineries, more restaurants, and a small theater.
