With a private hot tub, a gorgeous outdoor deck, and an enviable location overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this three-bedroom Manchester vacation home is an ideal destination for guests in search of coastal tranquility.
Beautifully secluded in the small town of Manchester in Northern California, this two-level oceanfront home is 24 miles north of Gualala, 26 miles south of Mendocino, and only a quarter-mile from the wild and rugged ocean beach.
Full of natural light and ocean views, the lofty living space brings the scenic outdoors in. Watch for passing whales and harbor seals from a seat on the sectional sofa, warm yourself by the rustic wood stove, or play a DVD favorite on the retractable flatscreen TV.
The full kitchen enjoys a panoramic view of both the ocean and the living room, while a variety of cooking tools makes meal preparation easy and relaxing. You'll find an open dining room with seating for six, as well as a dishwasher to take care of the after-dinner chores. A grill outside offers opportunities for barbecues on sunny days.
Watch the sun go down each evening from the comfort of a lounge chair on the deck, or gather your family around the picnic table for a high-stakes game of poker. And there's no better way to enjoy the brisk coastal breezes than from the warmth of the ocean-facing hot tub.
Without cable service or WiFi, the Friederichs' Beach House encourages its guests to comb the nearby ocean beach or take a scenic drive along California Highway One. And don't worry about keeping your clothes salt- and sand-free - there's a private washer and dryer, as well as a convenient half-bathroom, in the garage.
No matter your outdoor interests, Manchester is an ideal home base for fishing enthusiasts, abalone divers, hikers, and motorists. Take in one of the most beautiful sunset views in California at the Point Arena Lighthouse just ten miles south, or stop by Manchester State Park to find five miles of sandy beach and fields of seasonal wildflowers.
Escape the crowds and enjoy the natural beauty of the Northern California Coast today!
