vacation rental description

Cove House is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion or anniversary, or just to relax and forget about the rest of the world for a few days. Perched at the edge of a bluff overlooking some of the most spectacular coastline in Northern California, this charming cottage sits on a fenced acre and a half -- with private cove access. Whale watching, kayaking and tidepooling at your doorstep.

The house is 2 BR/1 BA with a light and airy feel. White-washed wood beamed ceilings and comfortable cottage-style furnishings. Oceanside bedroom provides direct ocean views and deck access. Living room entertainment center is stocked with books, board games and movies for your enjoyment. Adjacent sunken reading room leads to a large deck with hot tub. Both the living areas and deck offer whitewater views of cliffs, the cove and offshore islands. Kitchen is well-appointed (sorry, no dishwasher), and three markets --all within a few minutes' drive -- offer an excellent selection of fresh seafood, meats and organic produce.

Our seaside meadow is ideal for a leisurely game of croquet or horseshoes (both provided). Or curl up in an Adirondack chair with a good book, some wine and cheese, and the surf rolling in.

activities and attractions in Gualala North Coast

Gualala is a beautiful 3-hour drive from San Francisco, mid-way along the section of Highway 1 that was just rated the #1 North American Coastal Drive by Coastal Living magazine.  Gualala is known for its banana belt microclimate, with sun and mild temperatures much of the year -- along with the occasional whopping coastal storm! Local activities include golf, kayaking, horseback riding, wine tasting, tidepooling, abalone diving and spa treatments. The world-renowned Sea Ranch golf course is located just ten minutes south of Cove House and is open to the public. Kayak and diving equipment rentals are available in town.

The Point Arena Cinema, a 20-minute drive north is a lovingly-renovated theatre showing first-run films and live entertainment. Food lovers will want to try St. Orres (specializing in game), only 1/2-mile from Cove House.
