The word serendipity was formed by English author Horace Walpole (1717-1797) from Serendip, an old name for Sri Lanka, in reference to a Persian tale, The Three Princes of Serendip, whose heroes 'discovered, quite unexpectedly, great and wonderful good in the most unlikely of situations, places and people.'
Should you make the decision to spend your vacation at this high-quality ocean view home, it will probably be more a reflection of your high standards and careful planning than the discovery of unexpected good in an unlikely place.
If an open floor plan, easy beach access and a kitchen to end all kitchens is on your ‘must-have’ checklist, you need look no further.
Serendipity features an excellent floor plan, featuring two master suites, additional bedroom with private bath and exterior cottage. The garage has been set up as a game room. It features air hockey, table soccer, ping-pong, and a dart board. Outdoor games such as volley ball set, horseshoes, and croquet are included. The indoor entertainment room features a 32 inch TV with satellite and Nintendo Wii. The guest cottage has an additional TV with satellite. With an attention to detail rarely found in vacation rentals, you will be mightily impressed with the high standards to which other homes can only aspire.
Serendipity is among our most desirable vacation homes. Make your plans early to stay at this unique and stylish home.

AMAZING, WONDERFUL, SPACIOUS, GREAT VIEW, STEPS FROM BEST BEACH
Hands down the best Vacation rental home I have ever stayed in. We have been renting houses in the Fort Bragg area for 18 years and this is by far the best. The house has everything you can imagine and more. The outside has enough room to play volleyball, horseshoes etc. Seaside beach was so wonderful. Every bed was so comfortable. This house is perfect for large groups and the layout still allows for privacy when you want it. We can not wait to go back.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: I am the owner of Shoreline Vacation Rentals in Fort Bragg. 2012 marked our 26th year in business. Paul and Marie purchased this home and immediately set about furnishing it to satisfy the most discriminating travelers. They had an eye toward creating an environment that would be ideal for families. The house is set up for a carefree and stylish vacation where you won't have to worry about traffic.
Why the Owner Chose Fort Bragg:
Always wanted a beach house. This fits the bill. The owners fell in love with the house the first time they set foot in it. Why? Because it was PERFECT. The quality of construction, the interior design, the number of bedrooms and baths, the amenities. The owner/builder's attention to detail was unsurpassed.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Mendocino coast is famous for its spectacular vistas and abundant wildlife. Having a home with access to both a sandy beach and a river offers a rare opportunity to enjoy live at the nexus of both ocean and freshwater environments.
