Ocean View Home w/ Gorgeous Sunset Views, Large Deck, Wood Stove, WiFi, W/D!

Beautifully situated a stone's throw from the edge of the Pacific Ocean, this two-bedroom home in Shelter Cove is the serene, relaxing escape you've been seeking on the gorgeous Northern California Coast. You'll be able to walk to the beach, the lighthouse, the neighboring golf course, and great spots for tidepooling and whale watching, with a large viewing deck and an upstairs balcony waiting to welcome you home with commanding ocean views.

This home is filled with charm and character, which is immediately apparent in the large and plentiful windows, the richly hued wood beams and paneling, and the wood-burning stove that warms the living room. After a day spent hiking or tidepooling, you can curl up in the window seat with a good book or the provided telescope, or step out onto the viewing deck for cocktail hour with an amazing ocean view at sunset. Prepare dinner in the fully appointed kitchen, sit down to eat at the circular dining table for four, and adjourn to the den on the main floor to choose a DVD to watch on the flatscreen TV (with DirecTV, HBO, Starz, and other premium channels). Leave the day's clothes to spin in the laundry room and enjoy a restful night's sleep in one of the two upstairs bedrooms. Choose between one bedroom with a queen-size bed and an open loft room with a king-size bed, a sitting area, and a cozy window seat. There's a full bathroom on each floor - one with a tub/shower combination upstairs and another with a stall shower downstairs.

What's nearby:
This home sits on a grassy, unfenced property just across Lower Pacific Drive from the ocean in Shelter Cove. You'll find nearby access to the water at the Cape Mendocino Lighthouse (less than half a mile down the road), Cove Beach (just over half a mile down the road), and Black Sands Beach (two miles north). The nine-hole Shelter Cove Golf Links are right around the corner as well.

The Cove House was the perfect place to stay! It was quiet, had views of the ocean and easy walk to the Brewery. We will definitely be back!

Nice accommodations with ocean views. Well stocked with everything for a relaxing stay. Even the weather cooperated.
Would definitely return!

Lovely home yards away from the ocean short walking distance from beaches, tide pools, etc. Interior is upscale. Very comfortable and does nothing feel like a rental. Only drawback is poor internet. Great for a couple or family.

We enjoyed this house. It’s a great location and wasn’t too blustery even during a storm. It’s pretty well appointed but does not have a microwave. That was a downside for us. It was fine other than that. I would recommend it.

We really enjoyed our stay at this nice home. There are many windows in the rooms to see the ocean. The Kitchen is well equipped with lots of pots and pans and accessories that makes preparing meals at home and ease. A nice retreat for a nice time.
