Property description

Cliff Cottage offers a lot, and, it is only a 5-6 minute walk to Wright's Beach. Friends of Cliff Cottage have described their stay as restorative; and, they say that the whitewater views of the Pacific Ocean have a calming effect.

If the traveler is concerned about climate change, he or she can breath a little easier knowing that the newly installed solar-powered system can offset most of the electricity used.

The long, rear deck, living room, kitchen, and hot tub all take full advantage of the newly enhanced, panoramic ocean and whitewater views; private garden provides a sanctuary for birds, including hummingbirds, cliff swallows, warblers, finches, blackbirds, and others.

Cook a meal on the gas BBQ while you enjoy watching the waves crash on the shore and the sounds of the Pacific Ocean. Or, slip onto the padded bay-window seat with a cup of coffee, a cozy fire, and watch a storm roll in. DVD, VCR, and satellite TV are available in the living room; master bedroom (European Sleepworks engineered king sleeping system) has DVD. Free, wireless, satellite internet access was recently installed. Cook a holiday meal in the convection oven and/or the gas range while you watch the tide roll in and out from the kitchen. The loft has a queen bed with two sky-lights and views of the hilly ranch land to the east.

(At night, one can see the far-off headlights of cars traversing the steep grade down to Jenner.) To the east are rolling hills, dotted with cattle, and green grass much of the year. Hiking trails to the top of the hills provide magnificent views far up and down the coast-those lucky cows. A ten-minute hike northward along the bluff overlooking the ocean affords views of the rugged, majestic coastline. Or, after a short hike northward along the beach, all traces of human existence disappear: houses, roads, cars, even telephone poles can’t be seen. Ocean-spray from the crashing of the waves against rock formations of all colors, sea-life, sand, bluffs, and birds are all that are visible. (Keep an eye out for a small cave in the bluff.) A couple of miles or so further north along the beach, at very low tide, one can skirt a bluff that juts into the ocean to arrive at Sea Shell State Park.

During the evening, spectacular sunsets can often be seen from the deck. It is unusual to find a hot tub with such a splendid view of the ocean-in the moonlight, the water shimmers and sparkles. The nights are usually clear, giving up the unimpeded views of stars and the Milky Way. The only sound you hear is the ocean-no passing cars can be heard since you are so close to the ocean.

Garden
The garden is in the front of the house. Through the window, the dining/breakfast room and the ocean beyond are seen. Humming birds, cliff swallows, and finches are frequent visitors to the garden. Hermit thrushes are often heard, and birds of prey can be seen as well as shore birds, warblers, and vireos-to name a few. The dining/breakfast room offers views of both the garden and the ocean. The master bedroom opens through French doors to the garden.

Living-space, accommodations :There are splendid views of the ocean from the comfort of the living room. To the right is the entertainment system, including satellite TV, VCR, DVD, CD and stereo. Sliding doors close the library off from the living room.

Beach: Although Cliff Cottage is about seventy feet above Wright’s Beach-high enough that tsunamis are of little worry-the large Monterey Cypress that covers the cliff gives the impression that the ocean is very close. (The cliff is more of a steep slope, not a sheer cliff.) The beach is about a 5 to 6 minute south on Cliff Avenue and a short distance along Hiway One to Duncan's Landing, then down to the beach. There are plenty of wonders to explore along the waterfront and beach-one of the most pleasant times to explore the beachfront is in the morning, when the winds are often still.

Whale Watching: From the back deck, from Mar through the end of May or longer, one can see California greys spouting. And, sometime, a cow and a calf spend a couple of days feeding in the deep waters just off the beach.

The hot-tub area has fantastic views of the Pacific ocean often with large waves crashing on the beach and, at night, starry skies .

The kitchen has stainless-steel Cuisinart cookware (gas cooktop).
