The word serendipity was formed by English author Horace Walpole (1717-1797) from Serendip, an old name for Sri Lanka, in reference to a Persian tale, The Three Princes of Serendip, whose heroes 'discovered, quite unexpectedly, great and wonderful good in the most unlikely of situations, places and people.'
Should you make the decision to spend your vacation at this high-quality ocean view home, it will probably be more a reflection of your high standards and careful planning than the discovery of unexpected good in an unlikely place.
If an open floor plan, easy beach access and a kitchen to end all kitchens is on your ‘must-have’ checklist, you need look no further.
Serendipity features an excellent floor plan, featuring two master suites, additional bedroom with private bath and exterior cottage. The garage has been set up as a game room. It features air hockey, table soccer, ping-pong, and a dart board. Outdoor games such as volley ball set, horseshoes, and croquet are included. The indoor entertainment room features a 32 inch TV with satellite and Nintendo Wii. The guest cottage has an additional TV with satellite. With an attention to detail rarely found in vacation rentals, you will be mightily impressed with the high standards to which other homes can only aspire.
Serendipity is among our most desirable vacation homes. Make your plans early to stay at this unique and stylish home.
I am the owner of Shoreline Vacation Rentals in Fort Bragg. 2012 marked our 26th year in business. Paul and Marie purchased this home and immediately set about furnishing it to satisfy the most discriminating travelers. They had an eye toward creating an environment that would be ideal for families. The house is set up for a carefree and stylish vacation where you won't have to worry about traffic.
Always wanted a beach house. This fits the bill. The owners fell in love with the house the first time they set foot in it. Why? Because it was PERFECT. The quality of construction, the interior design, the number of bedrooms and baths, the amenities. The owner/builder's attention to detail was unsurpassed.
The Mendocino coast is famous for its spectacular vistas and abundant wildlife. Having a home with access to both a sandy beach and a river offers a rare opportunity to enjoy live at the nexus of both ocean and freshwater environments.
Serendipity is in the Ocean Meadows subdivision adjacent to the mouth of the Ten Mile River. It is very shallow and can be traversed to access the sand dunes and beachside walking trail of MacKerricher State Park. There is a private stairway for owners and guests that allows access to Seaside Beach on the other side of the street. River kayaking, surf fishing, beachcombing, bird and whale watching are popular activities as is breathing in the briny fresh ocean air.
