About Jean Johnston

This beautiful area was the inspiration for my artist/sculptor husband. It also was the perfect place to rear our 3 children.

My days almost always begin with a walk on our 2+ miles of uncrowded beach.

Now that our children are grown I have time to pursue my passion, going to gem shows and creating jewelry from my unique finds.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

This home is set back from the highway and located on 3 acres surrounded by pasture land. Follow the paved driveway around to the back of the house and you will find a 1 car garage, a ramp to the back door for easy access and plenty of parking for your cars, boat or RV.

You will also find a secluded yard with a BBQ and comfortable chairs for relaxing.

Watch for deer, herds of elk and covies of quail. You can also enjoy a variety of colorful birds that come to the feeders. (Bird food provided.)

In late August the blackberry vines are hanging with juicy berries. They make delicious cobblers. Bring jars if you like to make jam.

Our stay was lovely, the price was fantastic, the beach so close and everything we needed was available at the house. Especially appreciated the lovely laundry room. Great vacation! Sugar ants were annoying.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your vacation. Sugar ants are annoying and they seem to send their scouts out every spring. Sorry. They have been eliminated. Jean

Perfect place for my family. 😀

  • 4 of 5

Such a sweet place, nestled off the highway with ocean across 101 and trees behind and plenty of room to play inside and out. Little tricky getting all of us over the highway and down to the beach, but it was worth it. Great clam chowder and sea food down by the port in Bookings. Not much right in town . Close to the Redwood National Forrest. Stout Grove is where they filmed part of the Return of The Jedi Star Wars movie. Grandkids had a great time. Those trees are breathtaking💁 We had a wonderful time!🌻

A Beachin Good Time

  • 5 of 5

The Ocean's Treasure house is amazing. Large enough to accomodate a big group comfortably. A retro living area that will make you want to dress up and play madmen. Great views of the ocean and just a short walk down to a very quite, and mostly secluded, beach. Better yet, just a 20 minute drive down the road from the redwoods. Would/will definitely come back.

Very cozy for a rainy Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

Warm and cozy, this place was great for our Thanksgiving, close enough to all the sites and the ocean. We loved that we could just walk across the street. Very clean and stocked we didn't need to go to the store for those items that we forgot. The beds were made and very comfortable. Good job Jean

A bit funky, but roomy and clean

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 12 adults enjoyed the stay. We used air beds in the large upstairs room. Access to the ocean was wonderful and everyone enjoyed visits to the Redwood Parks. The house contained everything needed for cooking and playing. We could have used another bathroom but managed with the two bathrooms available. Thank you for providing an excellent place for our annual gathering.
