About the property

Fantastic views with 2 large patios overlooking the Pacific

'THE CASTLE' - is one of Las Gaviotas' most unique oceanfront homes. This home was originally built by a Hollywood Icon - where he quietly entertained some of 'Glamour Stars' of the film industry. 'The Castle' boasts 3,000 plus square feet; two stories; along with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. When you step across this home's threshold, you will be stepping back in a 'retro designed' home with classic black, gold and white accents. 'The Castle' is the last home on the far northern side of Las Gaviotas.

This 3 bedroom home sleeps 8 people. It is a great home for family gatherings. Two private bedrooms provide king beds while the third XL bedroom has 2 queen beds.

MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY FOR THIS HOME IS 8 PEOPLE

The Las Gaviotas HOA sets the maximum # of people per home and this number cannot be exceeded, regardless of age.

The Las Gaviotas HOA does not allow renters to have guests in the community.

LAS GAVIOTAS

Visitors to Las Gaviotas can stroll along the boardwalk, play volleyball on the private sand beach, and even catch some waves in the break right out in front of the Las Gaviotas community.

If you enjoy staying in the community, Las Gaviotas offers a heated swimming pool, hot tub, putting green, shuffleboard and tennis courts, as well as a playground for the kids.

Full-time groundskeepers maintain the garden areas with various flowers, roses, hibiscus and bougainvillea spilling over flagstone paths leading to the ocean. Be captivated by the abundant sea life and the seasonal appearance of schools of dolphin, migrating whales, as well as many pelicans and swallows.

Experience stardom

  • 4 of 5

The castle is one funky house - amazingly dramatic. Sleeping in the master bedroom makes one feel like a Hollywood star living in the '50s! We rented 5 houses for a family reunion. Everyone wanted to tour this one when they heard about the spiral stairs and the ceiling with cherubs.

Perfect Mexican Oasis

  • 5 of 5

I planned a trip with several friends for wine tasting over my birthday. We had been looking at several homes in Las Gaviotas and I'm so glad we decided upon "The Castle". It was the perfect location and size for our group. The home is very unique and has breathtaking ocean views. The outside patio area was perfect for a large barbeque and relaxing to the beautiful sunset each night. It was also very close to the pool and main beach area. We will definitely be staying in this home again.

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with friends for the weekend and really liked the place. It has a funky, cool decor and feeling that is timeless retro. There is a bar (BYOB) complete with a wet sink and fridge that we had a lot of fun with and the kitchen had pretty much everything we needed dish and pan wise for each couple to make their own meal for the group. To give you an idea, we pulled off lasagna; taco bar; and a few extravagant breakfasts with the pots, pans, and serving dishes available. The location was great as you have a wall to your north so no neighbors there and only one house a good distance to the South. Wifi worked perfectly and so did all the electronics. The master bedroom is something else is all I can say... I've never seen anything quite like it.

The Castle at Las Gaviotas

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home next to this one so we could have two homes side by side and this home was the a wonderful home to host our wedding. It has a beautiful master bedroom that sits high overlooking the ocean with a rooftop patio. The outdoor space is very private as there aren't any neighbors to the north allowing for a wonderful oasis. We can't wait to go back.
