The Unique Benefits at this House: Watching crashing surf salt spray, breaching whales and leaping dolphins, and the sun rising over the Pacific ocean, all from the master bedroom's king sized platform bed - or while having coffee on the private lanai - or from the hot tub - or from the living room - views everywhere! Accompanied by the soundtrack of ocean, birds, frogs, and nothing more.
