Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Born in California and love international traveling, as well as, the US. I have enjoyed the experience of amazing homes and exchanges in different parts of the world and here at home. Currently making this beach house at the water available for parts of the year. Always love coming back to Shell Beach. The serenity, natural beauty and quality of the people in this small beach town make your vacation wishes come true. There are several fine hotels and amazing restaurants to fit ANY budget.

Why the Owner Chose Shell Beach:
If you are particular about location this is the property for you. The best experience for ocean lovers is the sound of the surf at your front door. This property offers that caressing sound and so much more.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Steps to beach, wifi, fully stocked kitchen, laundry room, the upmost in amenities and organic salad growing in the backyard all to make the vacation you've dreamed of. The kitchen is fully stock with all your favorite condiments and seasoning for every kind of cooking you may choose to do. There are extra cans and various food just in case you get hungry in the middle of the night. Gazing out the window at all the birds, dolphins, seals, and occasional whales will take your breath away and bathe you in serenity.
