It's the perfect time of year to take a break and rejuvenate. We have the perfect location and home for you.

This 2800sf oceanfront home, located on the California coast North of San Francisco and the wine country, offers spectacular ocean views, soothing ocean sounds, awesome sunsets, excellent wave and aquatic viewing and an opportunity to unplug from everyday life.

The living room/dining areas as wells as the ocean side patio are each nearly 1000 sq ft and perfect for an intimate wedding, reception, anniversary or other significant events in life.

Flying enthusiasts will enjoy the convenience of the local airstrip, golfers can experience coastal golfing, fishermen can seek adventure with chartered fishing trips, children will enjoy tide pooling and lovers can stroll the long stretches of local beaches.

The golfing enthusiast will enjoy a round of golf on this unique golf course designed by Larry Hughs. This 9 hole, 33 par, 110-slope rating golf course starts at the Community Center at the south end of the run way and surrounds the air strip. The distance between holes ranges between 135 and 477 yards. Views of the ocean and local animal life are just a few distractions you might find while playing a round on this course. Currently this golf course is on the honor system as there is no Pro Shop available. There are three sets of clubs (two with cart) at Seadance for an impromptu round of golf.

For pilots wishing to fly their personal aircrafts to Shelter Cove, there is an airstrip for day use. Please see our website for airstrip links.

Fishermen looking for an exciting day on the Pacific currently have local charter boat operations available to help you catch a fish the size you won't need to exaggerate to your friends.

Within a short walk you can tour the Cape Mendocino Lighthouse at the Mal Coombs Park, take the stairs down to search tide pools at low tide, watch Sea Lions at Seal Rock Picnic Area, or watch Abalone divers from the balcony or back yard in the cove directly behind the house.

A short scenic drive through Shelter Cove and you can hunt for shells, the perfect rock, watch the magnificent wave’s crash on rock outcroppings, and walk down the long expanse of Black Sand Beach.

Looking for a beautiful backdrop to celebrate your wedding, reception or anniversary banquet; Seadance is suitable with 1,000 Sq Ft of open space inside as well as 1,000 Sq Ft of patio space outside.

                                                                I've stayed @ Seadance many times, and have even wrote a few reviews on my stays. Beautiful home and location. Wonderful decompression spot for city folks. Played guitar to the soft rhythm of the waves and enjoyed the beautiful sunsets. I'll be back!


                                                                Mary D.

                                                                We stayed here with our family while attending a family wedding in Shelter Cove.

                                                                Wow! That's what we all said when we walked in Seadance! It is breathtaking.

                                                                Large, quiet except for the lovely sounds of the ocean. Spacious doesn't even describe the space. Clean, large but cozy, well stocked kitchen, comfy beds, just wonderful. You will not regret renting this amazing place. We would have liked to have stayed longer than our three nights and hope to return.

                                                                One note, not safe for small children as the beautiful outdoor space is near a cliff and the there are many sliding doors allowing for amazing views.. The whole block is on a cliff. We had a four year old with us and he was a kid that stayed close by his parents but our 3 and 1/2 year old daredevil grandson would have made us nervous.

                                                                Right on the water!

                                                                Cindi B.Cloverdale, California

                                                                This is a great house for larger groups. Downstairs has lots of conversation areas and the kitchen is well-equipped. Downside was having to launder sheets before you leave. For the price I felt that should have been housekeeping's responsibility. The patio has great vistas and a fire pit for evening relaxation. Overall it is a great place to stay.

                                                                Awesome view of the ocean 180°

                                                                The house has absolutely everything you'll need to relax and enjoy the views

                                                                Beautiful view. Fantastic family destination!

                                                                Our family came from Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Florida. They were so impressed with the house and being just yards from the ocean. Whales and sea lions were spotted close by. Enjoyed the fog and some splendid sunny days, too. A great stay was had by all.


                                                                Pete D.

                                                                Wow! That was our first impression as we walked through the door. The ocean views are fantastic! We loved the place and can't wait to come back,
