SEAL COVE BEACH HOUSE
$350 per week night.
This Home is new on VRBO, we welcome you to this comfortable, spacious beach house with amazing views.
This home is directly in front of the spectacular Seal Cove Beach, awesome ocean views, adjacent to the Cypress Bluff Trail along the Marine Reserve. Beautiful views of Seal Cove Beach from the upstairs and downstairs. This Beach House is across from the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve. The Cypress Beach House is the perfect location for your quiet beach vacation. Watch whales from the upstairs deck, walk along the park trails and saunter down to the beach only yards from the front door to watch seals or go tide pooling.
This is a tranquil quiet neighborhood within steps to Seal Cove Beach across from the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve. Please do not inquire if you are having a large gathering, party, wedding, or reception.
The furnishings and touches are all beach inspired. We provide the most comfortable beds you've ever slept on. You will appreciate the soft white 600 count white linens on all the beds. Everything you expect to find in a fine hotel and more, will be available at the Beach House; lots of towels, blow dryer, shampoo, etc.
A huge bonus is beach access and amazing walking paths right from the front door to an old Cypress Tree forest! Walk through this breathtaking forest overlooking Seal Cove Beach and watch the surf from above or explore the tide pools and harbor seals below on the sandy beach. You are also within walking distance to Maverick Surf Break. The bluffs are perfect for mountain biking or hiking. This area is a well kept secret - at least during the week when most visitors park on the other side of the reserve.
This fully equipped home, has a spacious kitchen which opens up to the living / dining / family rooms - all with the most amazing white water views. The Cypress forest views on one side, the ocean views and sunsets on the other side. The clean smells of the Beach and salt air, and the soothing, smells of the cypress trees are captured throughout this magical Beach Home.
The master bedroom has a king bed with added memory foam, for a comfortable sleep, with high grade bedding. The Spacious Master Bedroom has its own Private Master Bath with Peek a Boo Ocean Views from the Comfy Bed!
The second and third bedrooms, share a full bath downstairs. Second bedroom has a king bed with the high grade linens and memory foam for your added comfort. Third bedroom has a queen bed with high grade linens. There is also an air bed (queen) for the kiddies.
Laundry is downstairs, with a washer and dryer. The spiral stair case leads upstairs to the great room, kitchen and half bath. There are two decks, one off of the living room area overlooking the cypress trees. The second deck is off of the dining area overlooking the unobstructed ocean views!
For a long or short weekend or a holiday week at this beach house , this treasure has something for everybody. Plenty of ocean views, a comfortable well stocked Beach Home. Once you park your car, there is NO Reason to get in your car again. You are able to walk to the beach, walk to the historic Moss Beach Distillery Restaurant and the Marine Reserve, or hike to Princeton By the Sea Harbor for fish and chips. Or stay home, watch the whales go by while you are lazing on the back deck.

Three of us from college gather once a year for a get away and catch up on life weekend. We picked HMB area due to the easy drive from 3 different areas of CA. We picked this home due to the 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and proximity to ocean! This house is quite roomy and all the picutres online are exactly what you will get. The beds are VERY big and comfy. The house has plety of couches and room to move around in. The trails across the street are fantastic (especially the sunset walk...which we noticed is the norm to do each evening)! The beach is literally steps down! Only the locals seem to go to this beach. There is a restaurant up the hill walking distance from the house. This house is fully stocked with any dishes, paper products, supplies you may need during your stay. Plenty of parking for visitors. Two decks (one is great people watching as locals walk dogs and hit the trails and the beach) and the other is more private on the side with a nice view of the ocean. We would have loved having a table on the larger deck to enjoy a meal out there but there is ample seating available. We had a perfect weekend of sunny days (and this was NOVEMBER)! No overcast at all. The owner Fred is very accomadating as to let us have an early check in and a late check out. Fred surprised us with a flower delivery on our first evening!

We arrived at this property from our home state of Montana not knowing what to expect. We were planning a week long family get together with our kids and grandkids who all live in Northern California and were going to be in and out as work and school allowed. We had only the description as it appears on the VRBO website to go by and were understandably apprehensive about what we would find. We couldn't have been happier with the property. It's perfect for what we were doing. In fact, we are planning an annual return and have already booked for next year. The property is located on a quiet side street with very little traffic (good for the little ones) and adjacent to a huge wooded park like area. The beach is mere steps from the front door but not so close that you have to worry about kids tumbling off the cliff. The property is entirely fenced with adequate parking. In short, the description offered on VRBO website is right on. No exaggerations here. Two things not to miss are a sunset dinner at The Distillery (walking distance) and a walk along the bluffs. Absolutely gorgeous, bring your cameras.

Home was as depicted in photos and description. Great views and a short walk not only to the beach but to hiking trails. We would definitely stay here again when we return to this area.

My family and I stayed at this beach house for the first time just recently. We fell in love with the spacious and bright house and the extremely peaceful location. Beds were very comfortable, kitchen was amazing, tv was easy to use, views of the ocean and the forest were incredible. A quiet neighborhood with a great beach right down our street and lovely forest trails right across from the house. We barely left the area as we were too busy exploring the beach and forest and relaxing in the house. Very pleased with our stay and will definitely be back again soon!

Great great fun and a perfect house to host a family reunion of sorts!! The owners were very very helpful (yes there was a hair dryer in the downstairs bathroom) and there was a nice blow up mattress BUT it has a leak. It blew up nicely but didn't hold the air for very long. We had to abandon it. It's packed back up but probably you should get it repaired... Love the setting; sunsets were unreal and even the fog was beautiful. Sun came out for my brother's wedding just down the road!! If ever we come back that way, we definitely will rent this home again!!

My family and I stayed at the home and had a great time. Lots of outdoor hiking for the kids to stretch their legs. The seals at Fitzgerald Park kept the kids entertained. On our last day we say Whales off the cove of Fitzgerald park too. No reason to go very far. This home is positioned perfectly next to the Ocean and Woods.

This property is even better than its description and photographs! It is a very comfortable and well maintained home filled with personal touches that enhanced our vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed the quiet neighborhood, views of the ocean to the west, and tranquil cypress forest to the north. The beach is literally within a few steps and down a flight of stairs from the front door. We highly recommend this lovely home and hope to stay here again the next time we are in the area.

The house is beautiful and well appointed and the location can not be better for the nature/beach lover. The Marine Preserve provides views, privacy and good tidal pools. The Distillery Restaurant is fun and also has unsurpassed views - try Happy Hour. The descriptions are accurate and, if anything, are understated.
