About the Property

3 bedroom, 2 bath, lots of windows, spacious upstairs master suite, sea breezes

Relaxing 3 bedroom/2 bath home in THE VERY BEST LOCATION at water's edge. Huge front porches on this 2 story condo enjoy spectacular views & refreshing breezes. This special beachfront villa has a legendary history, having been previously owned by well known singer & actor, Burl Ives. For many years this was his idyllic hideaway by the sea. Now you can step back in time and live the legend. Read more history below.

Also have additional 1 bedroom condo at same location that sleeps 4 and rents for $79/night. See VRBO#890649.

This 3 bedroom beachfront home is not your typical rental, it is very well equipped so you can feel right at home... but at the beach…. under the palm trees and the stars, surrounded by colorful bougainvillea in a lushly landscaped grassy park-like setting, where you can hear the waves constantly. Watch the dolphins swim by right off from the front porch. You can even join the dolphins if you want to hop in a kayak and paddle alongside, or just jump in the water and swim with them. The pristine white-sand beach invites long quiet walks where you can collect a great variety of sea shells, freshly washed up on the shore every day. You can also observe an abundance of maritime wild life including sea gulls, pelicans, sea turtles, dolphins, whales, and many different fish. Adjacent mangrove lined estuary is teaming with marine life & can be explored by kayak. There is a restaurant/bar on site so you don't have to drive into town for a night out. Most grocery needs are available at any of several stores in San Carlos, a quiet beach town 5 minutes away by car.

Sleeps 6 adults + 2 kids, with king size bed in upstairs master suite facing the water, 1 single & 1 full bed in 2nd bedroom facing courtyard and 2 single beds in 3rd bedroom, which faces beachside. Additional mattress available if necessary for younger person on floor. There is a fully equipped kitchen and adjacent dining area with a beach view. You can also cook outdoors with propane cook stove under the shade of beachfront porch. Enjoy your meals beachside around a large round mahogany table. High end 4 zone multi split A/C & Heating system provides precise temperature control in each room. Running whisper quiet, it allows you to enjoy the soothing sound of waves throughout the residence. There are dimmers on nearly every light switch, so you can enjoy the lighting at whatever level is comfortable for you. Internet phone provides free calls to US & Canada.

$179/night. Discounted weekly rates and last minute discounts are an option if arriving less than 1 week from reservation date, subject to availability. Smoke free. Pets considered with advanced authorization.

Also have additional 1 bedroom condo at same location that sleeps 4 and rents for $79/night. See VRBO#890649.

SPECIAL HISTORY OF THIS 3 BEDROOM BEACH VILLA: Architect Raul F. Garduno of Newport Beach, CA, (the uniquely talented architect of the entire Pilar community) designed this spacious villa as his personal home. It is surrounded by well kept grass lawns, colorful bougainvillea & relaxing palm trees on 3 sides, immediately next to the beach. The two front porches feature commanding views up & down the surf line in both directions, and provide spectacular views of both sunrise and sunset.

Burl Ives, well known music and film star, purchased this home from the architect and for many years it was his personal beach retreat. You can truly feel the nostalgic mystique of a bygone era surrounding this historically significant home.
