  • Beautiful home! Fabulous views!

    "We have stayed at vacation rentals in Shelter Cove before, and this was one of our favorites, so far! The location is perfect! The back deck is right above the ocean and has the most beautiful views. Sunsets are amazing at Shelter Cove! It was awesome to see them from the deck, or the window seats. And, we were able to see several whales, not up close like we would have liked, but we saw them through binoculars most of the time, and it made it very enjoyable. The house was spacious, and the decor was very nice. It was stocked with everything we needed, and the owners were very easy to work with. The booking/payment process was simple, and any time I had questions prior to our trip, I would contact the owner, and he responded very quickly. Thank you for opening your home to us, and making us feel welcome! I would definitely rent from this property owner again."

  • Independence Day weekend

    "We loved this property. We went over for the long 4th of July weekend and had a fantastic time. The photos are perfectly indicative of what you get when you stay in this home. The house is centrally located and easy to walk to everything. We can't comment on the restaurants, as we did not go out to eat the whole time. I read a poor review just a couple of weeks before we went. I was a little nervous to see what was going to happen. When we arrived I was very happy with what we saw. I won't speculate as to the circumstances that Bill references in his review, but I will say that if his review was accurate, the issues he cites have been addressed and rectified (with the exception of the leaking drain from the deck into the garage. This however, was no real problem as we did not even know it was an issue until the last day as we were cleaning up and noticed it on our final walk-through). Bill also mentions that the home is for sale. I'm not sure why this is listed as a downside. It did indeed have a for sale sign in the yard, but so what. We have two young children and found that the stairs were no problem for them. There really are not that many stairs to deal with. We give the property five stars and would love to stay there again. It seems unlikely that we will be able to because our schedules are very tight and don't allow us to go the coast as much as we would like, but we would jump at the chance to stay there again."

  • Very cosy house set back from the beach and road

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was very clean. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This house is tidy and nicely furnished in kitschy lighthouse motif and beach style. Very nice hot tub on the deck. Dog enjoyed watching 'doggie tv' out the french doors (deer and woldlife). Sorry about the nose prints on the glass. Easy drive or walk to the beach and convenient for Point Arena, Mendo, etc. Manager responded on 4/6/2015: Good Morning Marguerite, I'm so sorry I missed your visit this go around! Please let me know when you come back to the area. Glad you enjoyed the Castaway Cottage. It really is a cute place to stay. Happy Days, Kim P.S. The ranch is in escrow! WooHoo! Fingers crossed. . . . . ."
