Sitting on the rugged shore of Shelter Cove, with unparalleled coastal views, this is the SeaSide Splendor that your vacation calls for. Enjoy the sit-down ocean views from every angle in the open great room. View stunning sunsets from inside or step out onto the expansive deck for a broad, multifaceted experience of the oceanfront evening (hear the cries of seagulls and the barking response of local sea lions). Retire to the well-appointed kitchen to prepare your dinner with the fresh seafood that you caught on your chartered fishing trip this morning (don’t forget the abalone!). With three bedrooms, two and a half baths, plus the large ocean view bonus room, this vacation home provides plenty of space to savor your coastal getaway. The home sleeps 6-8 comfortably. We will consider extra guests. If your 4 legged family members don't want to stay home, talk to us. We occasionally consider well behaved, house trained pups for an extra cost. Let the SeaSide Splendor call you back to Shelter Cove.

We had a very pleasant weekend at your house, it was overwhelming. Thank you for such a wonderful house and view.
This place was so amazing! Clean, beautiful location, perfect for our party of 6. This was the best family vacation we have had in ages, and owe it all to the beautiful place we stayed!! Thank you!!
The pictures do not do this property justice. We were absolutely thrilled with everything about our stay. The location was amazing, the accommodations were spectacular, I can’t think of a single thing that would have made it any better. Thanks for renting this amazing place!!!
Beautiful home with amazing views!
Our family of 6 had a fabulous stay at Shelter Cove. The photos don't do the house justice. We have stayed at many different rentals and this was by far the classiest. The view cannot be beat from upstairs or down. Tender attention to every detail is taken for the renter's convenience. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need. I slept like a baby with the sound of the crashing waves in THEE most comfortable bed I have EVER slept in. We tide pooled every day outside our door. Chartered a fishing boat for a very productive day of fishing. Walked Black Sands beach. And my 9 year old daughter rode the rolling waves at the Marina beach for hours. We also had a great night playing poker using the treasure chest loot as our chips! I left after our 6 day stay feeling very grateful for the opportunity of staying in such a beautiful place in such a unique part of the California Coast.
The photos on VRBO do not do this house justice. Simply beautiful! We will be back for sure.
Fabulous views, very comfortable and roomy house.
We loved this pacific paradise. My kids loved the seals just a short walk from the house and hiking nearby the lighthouse. The pizza place is very nice and it is a very safe community with many nice people. I would stay a month if I could.
Our oceanfront home, located on the California coast North of San Francisco and the wine country, offers unparalleled ocean views, stunning sunsets, and both the lulling sounds of ocean waves and the excitement of higher winter surf. Watch the whale migration from the deck (you can hear the whales exhale -- you are so close). The juxtaposition of relaxation and invigoration that accompanies a SeaSide view is inspirational.
For pilots wishing to fly their personal aircraft to Shelter Cove, there is an airstrip for day use.
The golfing enthusiast will enjoy a round of golf on Shelter Cove's golf links. This 9 hole, 33 par, 110-slope rating golf course begins at the Community Center at the south end of the run way and surrounds the air strip. You would be welcome, however, to begin your golf game on the 5th tee that is closer to our home -- just remember to pay your greens fee ($10 - honor system) when you reach the community center. The distance between holes ranges between 135 and 477 yards. Views of the ocean, mountains, and local flora and fauna are just a few distractions you might battle as you play. Currently this golf course is on the honor system ($10 per round).
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 ocean directly behind the house.
Enjoy a walk along Lower Pacific or adventure onto some of the new nature trails that the community has been blazing around the Cove.
Mountain Bike enthusiasts will be pleased with the recent addition of trails in the King's Range -- access points to which are just a brief drive back up the Shelter Cove Road.
Don't miss Black Sands Beach and the trailhead to the Lost Coast Trail. Stand on the beach and know that you are one of relatively few people in the world to see this view.
If you are here for multiple days, you might tear yourself away from the Cove for one of them in order to tour the Redwoods on the Avenue of the Giants, just a 45 minute drive away.
Finally, you are staying on the edge of the world. Turn off the outside lights at night and see stars as you might remember them from your childhood. They are gloriously bright. Use the telescope to explore the galaxy.
