Recent Shelter Cove vacation rental reviews

The cabin was cute, clean, and secluded . The sound of the creek just below was lovely. Had all the amenities listed including laundry machine. Very little to no cell service at the cabin BUT the Wi-Fi was fantastic! Hiking trail right there and super close to restaurant/cafe (2 min drive). Would definitely stay there again!

Well stocked kitchen implements. Clean and clutter-free interior that looks set up more like a hotel than a place somebody else is living in.
ISAGANI A. | Dec 2022
Cozy, well appointed house minutes from the beach and the lighthouse.

This resort town is home to an airport for easy access, and its coastal location means you’ll be surrounded by beaches that are perfect for the adventurous spirit. Shelter Cove Beach is great for boaters and fishermen, while Dead Man’s Beach is a popular surfing spot in spring and fall. A visit to Black Sands Beach is a must, where the name says it all: an unforgettable shoreline made of strikingly black rocks, where the waves put on a fierce display.

For a more family-friendly day at the beach, head to Seal Rock Picnic Area, located just minutes from our Shelter Cove vacation rentals. It’s a great spot for wildlife watching for sea lions and harbor seals. Gray whales may even make an appearance near shore as they’re migrating in January and February or April and May. Cape Mendocino Lighthouse is just a mile south, while golfers will love the great access to nearby Shelter Cove Golf Links.
