Capistrano Beach cottage description

6 guest maximum including children. 4 adult maximum.

Welcome to Shell Cottage. Enjoy this cozy beach style cottage home just a few steps from the bluffs of Capistrano Beach. This oasis getaway is just one short block from the ocean views and sunsets of Pines Park and only a short walk down the hill to feel the sand between your toes. You will find this special retreat to be uniquely calming, offering a perfect balance of entertainment and leisure. The expanse of the backyard includes pool, spa, water-slide, waterfalls, outdoor barbeque, ping-pong, and more.

Inside: TV’s are conveniently located in each bedroom and the family room, professional shuffleboard table, Juke box music at your finger tips and your own private WiFi.

Note: the pool does not have a fence around it, it is open to the rest of the backyard. If you have small children, this could be a hazard.

12 years ago we bought the 1950s cottage next door. We turned it into a guest house for distant family and a pool house/fun house for our small family. We opened up the backyards and created a very large space for fun and relaxation. Like all things, through the years it gets used less and less. Our two busy teenage daughters would much rather go to the beach in their free time than hang in the backyard. So yes it is a shared backyard, but with the exception of occasional watering of the potted plants you will probably not see us much.

We also have three, small to medium, very friendly dogs. We have a place to contain them if you are not a dog person.
