Recent Shelter Cove vacation rental reviews

Clean, inviting, lots of room, games for the kids, You name it, this place has it. Close to the beach, quite easy to find. We give this vacation home five stars all the way around.

A quiet location where you can still hear the surf.
Thomas S. | Mar 2024
Perfect family get-away. Only a few minutes to Shelter Cove. This home was perfect for a birthday get-away in the middle of winter. The home had everything we needed and a beautiful view plus it is a dog friendly home. We wished we had booked a longer stay!

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.
