About the Property
Bungalow, 1 Bedroom + 1 room with 2 bunks +Loft + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)
In the 30's it saw the likes of John Steinbeck and Jimmy Stewart.
In the 40's and 50's it served as the honeymoon cabin for just about all the family relatives. The 60's as the perfect summer vacation spot and the main fights between the kids revolved around who got the built- in bunk beds or the loft. Today it usually serves as a place to simply get away.
A charming, knotty pine shinned living room is focused on a large wood burning brick fireplace adjacent to a picture window providing a great view of the Bay. it is 'The' place to curl up with a book or gaze into the fire after a day at the beach.
Two generations of kids have grown up spending much of their summers on Rio del Mar beach which is a huge beach that is perfect for kids and only 1-1/2 miles away.
The interior of the house is very comfortable and has two separate areas to hang out. There is a den area attached to the kitchen as well as the very separate living room. Each room has a wide screen TV but often one room has people quietly playing games and reading while the other is filled with laughter and cheers.
The kitchen has a bar/counter with 4 stools and a table for 4.
There is a large table in the living room which seats 8 for dining and also makes a great area to play games.
The master bedroom has its own bath with shower.The bunk room is simply 2 extra wide built-in bunks and the loft is a double bed only. There is a separate bathroom as well as a dressing room/closet. This bath has a tub and shower.
There is a brick patio out front with chairs to hang out and watch the sunset while the very large back deck has tables and chairs and a gas bbq.
'The Shack' is truly unique and charming. It feels a million miles away from the nearby cities and towns.
