Shelter Cove house description

Unparalleled coastal and mountain views of the Lost Coast from every window in the house create a peaceful and romantic spot for a memorable escape from everyday life. The house faces the rocky coastline, backs up to the golf course and is near the north end of the runway with tie downs for easy access from your private plane or off street parking if you've driven.

You can spend your time; gazing at the whales passing by on their way to or from Baja California, peeking at the exquisite life in the tidepools, watching waves crashing on the rocks, enjoying the planes landing and taking off, the golfers on the golf course and the towering King Mountain Range or you can participate in these and other activities available in this area called the Lost Coast.

The house has a completely equipped gourmet kitchen, marble master bathroom with whirlpool tub and elegant beds wrap you in luxurious surroundings entertained by the ever-changing sites and sounds of nature.

                  Car: Necessary

                  Coastal Redwoods, Tide Pooling, Whale Watching (in season) and Deer roaming around the house at Sunrise and Sunset. Abalone diving, surfing, hiking, beach coming, golfing and relaxing. There's a children's playground at the firehouse with great views that are perfect for a family picnic. 4th of July is a great time to visit for the quaint parade, firehouse bbq and the locals put on a firework show like no other. Sunday church service. If getting away from the kitchen for a meal appeals to you, enjoy local establishments for pizza, fish and chips, and two restaurants with weekend evening entertainment (on occasion).

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1980

                  About the owner: We are parents of 4 grown children and grandparents of 6 children from 1 to 23 years old. We are proud to be 3rd generation native Californians, living in the Bay Area. This is a family favorite location with something for everyone.

                  Why the Owner Chose Shelter Cove:
                  Shelter Cove offers a beautiful, wild coastline, set against a backdrop of California Coastal Redwoods, with beautiful, black sand beaches, tide pools, abalone diving, whale watching and great sport fishing.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  While staying at our property we wander from the front of the house, gazing at the ocean, waves, whales, and migrating birds, to the back of the house, watching small planes, golfers, deer and Canadian geese. It is hard to figure out where is the best place to be gazing! And, harder still to get our chores done!
