Property description

SEAL COVE BEACH HOUSE
$350 per week night.
Comfortable, spacious 2 story beach house with whitewater ocean views and steps to the beach.

This home is directly in front of the spectacular Seal Cove Beach, awesome ocean views, adjacent to the Cypress Bluff Trail along the Marine Reserve. Beautiful views of Seal Cove Beach from the upstairs and downstairs. This Beach House is across from the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve. The Cypress Beach House is the perfect location for your quiet beach vacation. Watch whales from the upstairs deck, walk along the park trails and saunter down to the beach only yards from the front door to watch seals or go tide pooling.

This is a tranquil, quiet neighborhood within steps to Seal Cove Beach across from the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve. Please do not inquire if you are having a large gathering, party, wedding, or reception. There should never be more than 6 guests staying at the home and no more than 2-3 cars in the driveway. Parking is restricted on the streets.

The furnishings and touches are all beach inspired. We provide the most comfortable beds you've ever slept on. You will appreciate the soft white 600 count white linens on all the beds. Everything you expect to find in a fine hotel and more, will be available at the Beach House; lots of towels, blow dryer, shampoo, etc.

A huge bonus is beach access and amazing walking paths through a Cypress tree forest right outside the front door. Walk through this breathtaking forest overlooking Seal Cove Beach and watch the surf from above or explore the tide pools and harbor seals below on the sandy beach. You are also within walking distance to Maverick Surf Break. The bluffs are perfect for mountain biking or hiking. This area is a well kept secret - at least during the week when most visitors park on the other side of the reserve.

This fully equipped home, has a spacious kitchen with brand new stainless steel appliances which opens up to the living, dining, and family rooms - all with the breath taking white water views. The Cypress forest views on one side, the ocean views and sunsets on the other side. The clean smells of the Beach and salt air, and the soothing, smells of the cypress trees are captured throughout this magical Beach Home.

The master bedroom has a California king bed with added memory foam, for a comfortable sleep, with high grade bedding. The spacious master bedroom has its own private master Bath with Peek a Boo Ocean Views from the comfy bed. Open the windows and go to sleep to the sound of the surf.

The second and third bedrooms, share a full bath downstairs. Second bedroom has a king bed with the high grade linens and memory foam for your added comfort and sliding glass doors that open up to the backyard filled with beautiful bougeonvilla, an olive tree and grape vines. Third bedroom has a queen bed with high grade linens and a large window that opens up to the cypress trees.

Laundry is downstairs, with a washer and dryer. The spiral stair case leads upstairs to the great room with a fireplace, entertainment area, large kitchen and half bath. There are two upstairs decks, one off of the living room area overlooking the cypress trees and th ocean. The second deck is off of the dining area overlooking the unobstructed ocean views. A Brinkman propane grill is waiting for you to cook something scrumptious. Four andirondack chairs with new thick cushions welcome you to sit, sun and enjoy the view.

For a long weekend or a holiday week at this beach house , this treasure has something for everybody. Plenty of ocean views, a comfortable large beach home. Once you park your car, there is NO Reason to get in your car again. You are able to walk to the beach, walk to the historic Moss Beach Distillery Restaurant and the Marine Reserve, or hike to Princeton By the Sea Harbor for fish and chips. Watch the whales go by while you are lazing on the back deck.

Welcome to a homey, comfortable, California Beach House in a one of a kind location;

A one minute walk to Seal Cove Beach
A three minute walk to the famous Distillery Restaurant
A 30 Second walk to entry of the Cypress Bluff trail. The path leads to the entrance of the marine reserve on the northern side.
