A hand-molded archway leads to breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean.
WILDERNESS ~ Hawks glide below the deck on the coastal thermals through the canyons. Dusk and dawn can bring quail, bobcats and deer. It has been described as 'Yosemite with ocean views'. Relax on the deck with a drink and your loved one while watching the sun set over the Pacific Ocean, canyons and mountains.
