Shelter Cove house description

Located north of SF and the wine country, this lovely home is situated 500 feet from the ocean on top of a bluff over looking Black Sands Beach in Shelter Cove, CA. Views include an unobstructed view of the ocean and coastline, forested mountains, black sand beaches and surf crashing on rocks and the beach below. From the deck are frequently observed sea otters, pelicans, and even whales. Beach access is only a 5 minute walk from the house. The house is fully furnished and appointed with a complete kitchen, two comfortable queen beds in 2 separate bedrooms, twin bunk beds in the 3rd bedroom; a comfy couch in the living room sleeps a 7th person. Satellite TV (DirecTV Total Choice). Entertainment center includes DVD player, surround sound theatre system, iPod compatible. Gas fireplace. Washer/dryer. Free local calling. The ocean community of Shelter Cove offers fishing, whale watching, dining, beachcombing, hiking and a 9 hole golf course.


'The View' : Mere words cannot describe the beauty and tranquility one sees and feels when they sit on the deck built off the top floor of 'The House' at Shelter Cove. 'Panoramic' is almost not descriptive enough. The ocean, the beach, the rocks, crashing waves, the mountains and stunning stretches all in one magical spot. Add music, your favorite beverage, the near perfect weather and then just relax, you are taking in 'The View'.

'The Redwoods': They are very tall, straight as an arrow, and as wide as a small house. These are the basic impressions one gets once they see these majestic trees. It does not stop there however, stretches you walk among these 1000 year old giants you never look at trees the same ever again. Only 30 minutes drive stretches 'The House,' the Dewitt grove offers some wonderful hiking and a good number of the massive trees to get your Redwood Tree exploration started. Head north on US 101 (from Redway) just 2 miles, then take the 'Avenue of the Giants' exit for the best Redwood Tree forest viewing anywhere.

'Big Black Sands Beach': The waves crash with tremendous force, the sand is black as night, the beach stretches for miles, you are standing on 'Big Black Sands Beach'. Beautiful, but this beach is for walking only, as the rip tide is deadly, so use caution around the water. A 1/2 mile north from the trailhead (only 1/4 mile from 'THe House'), are the stunning Kaluna cliffs and 1/4 mile to the South, the best climbing rocks (during the mid to low tides) in all the cove. The plumes of water shot from the waves hitting the rocks here can be incredible.
