Shelter Cove House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Seadance on the Lost Coast at Shelter Cove

Relaxing Ocean Front, Whale Watch, Fish, Golf, Tide Pool

This 2800sf oceanfront home, located on the California coast North of San Francisco and the wine country, offers spectacular ocean views, soothing ocean sounds, awesome sunsets, excellent wave and aquatic viewing and an opportunity to unplug from everyday life.

The living room/dining areas as wells as the ocean side patio are each nearly 1000 sq ft and perfect for an intimate wedding, reception, anniversary or other significant events in life.

Flying enthusiasts will enjoy the convenience of the local airstrip, golfers can experience coastal golfing, fishermen can seek adventure with chartered fishing trips, children will enjoy tide pooling and lovers can stroll the long stretches of local beaches.

The golfing enthusiast will enjoy a round of golf on this unique golf course designed by Larry Hughs. This 9 hole, 33 par, 110-slope rating golf course starts at the Community Center at the south end of the run way and surrounds the air strip. The distance between holes ranges between 135 and 477 yards. Views of the ocean and local animal life are just a few distractions you might find while playing a round on this course. Currently this golf course is on the honor system as there is no Pro Shop available. There are three sets of clubs (two with cart) at Seadance for an impromptu round of golf.

For pilots wishing to fly their personal aircrafts to Shelter Cove, there is an airstrip for day use. Please see our website for airstrip links.

Fishermen looking for an exciting day on the Pacific currently have local charter boat operations available to help you catch a fish the size you won't need to exaggerate to your friends.

Within a short walk you can tour the Cape Mendocino Lighthouse at the Mal Coombs Park, take the stairs down to search tide pools at low tide, watch Sea Lions at Seal Rock Picnic Area, or watch Abalone divers from the balcony or back yard in the cove directly behind the house.

A short scenic drive through Shelter Cove and you can hunt for shells, the perfect rock, watch the magnificent wave’s crash on rock outcroppings, and walk down the long expanse of Black Sand Beach.

Looking for a beautiful backdrop to celebrate your wedding, reception or anniversary banquet; Seadance is suitable with 1,000 Sq Ft of open space inside as well as 1,000 Sq Ft of patio space outside.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented Seadance with our four kids and three grandkids. The house was absolutely beautiful. The stunning view of the ocean through the wrap-around back windows took our breath away when we first walked in. Made precious memories with the kids and grandkids during our stay. Loved the open floor plan with lots of comfy seating. Loved the pool table upstairs and the huge selection of DVDs and VHS movies. Had a fire in the fire pit several nights during our stay. The icing on the cake was the daily visit from Jag (Shorty), a little terrier that came by every day to say hi. He loved the little kids and played with them over and over. Kids are already talking about coming back next year.

Beautiful and serene

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay! The only reason it isn't a 4 star review is because the fireplace wasn't working when we were there, but otherwise, 5 stars! We had 9 adults staying in the house with 3 young kids and we never once felt crowded. The downstairs dining area sat 8 with extra chairs for all of us to fit, plus ample sitting areas indoors and out to lounge.

The outdoor patio with firepit overlooking the ocean was a great way to end each day, and that patio was perfect for the kids to run around without being too close to the cliff.

The kitchen had everything you could hope for in terms of prep and cooking/baking.

Upstairs they aren't lying about an extensive VHS collection as well as a lot of DVDs too. Pool table is well kept and 3 full bathrooms once again kept everyone from being in each other's ways.

I think I may have started a family tradition with this house as everyone fell in love with the house and the surrounding areas that offer tide pools, fishing, golfing, wading and hiking. Thanks, Seadance!

Beautiful location with plenty of space for guests

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and had a lot of dishware for hosting guests for the wedding rehearsal dinner. Laying on the patio in the sun was very relaxing. The fire pit and bbq grill came in handy. Easy to find location. I'd recommend this home to anyone! The views were as incredible from inside the house as they were from outside.

It is a joyous experience to listen to the sea crashing on the rocks as I go to sleep and wake in the morning. The home has everything you could want including plenty of room !

Beautiful home with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We were all blown away by the house, the views and all the details. There is nothing quite like watching a sunset with the waves crashing at your feet or waking up in the morning and lounging on a couch with coffee while listening to the ocean. The kitchen has everything you needed to cook a fabulous meal (way to go Sea Dance), beds are comfy and rooms quiet. VHS and DVD collection were the best we have seen since 1990. Pool table was an added bonus. My personal favorite was the daily visit from my little buddy Jag, the neighbor's dog who loves a pet and a cuddle. Can't recommend this fantastic home enough. It was hard to leave.
