This magnificent new custom designed home – The Sea Sanctuary – is situated just a hundred yards from the sand with 180 degree whitewater views. A seal colony can be found 1/2 mile to the south and exceptional tidepooling can be found directly in front of the home. A bike/walking trail runs along the ocean as well. Enjoy a solitary walk along the beach – in fact you could walk for miles and miles in secluded exploration of beach and sandy dunes. Radiant floor heat and a wood-burning fireplace can make this rental extra cozy in the winter. Elevated decks both front and rear allow for enjoyable outdoor living as well. A Jacuzzi-brand hot tub sits on the front deck from which you can watch and listen to the ocean’s roar, see the pelicans glide by, and at night watch thousands upon thousands of stars.
To take advantage of the great view, the main living area in the house is on the 2nd floor, including the master bedroom, kitchen, living and dining areas, all with gorgeous bamboo floors. A 5×7′ loft in the living room accessible from a built in ladder is a great place to play a game of cards, relax, or have a private conversation. Kids always want to sleep up there on the carpeted floor, and adults sometimes do too! Directly under the loft is the most popular spot in the house, the window seat, a great place to take a nap, read a book or just hang out and watch the waves. The 42″ wall-mounted flat screen TV is in a smaller den attached to the living room. The double doors on the den close, keeping the viewing noise from infiltrating the peacefulness of the rest of the house.
A gourmet custom granite and bamboo kitchen with double oven, All-Clad Cookware, Dishwasher, Kitchen Aid Mixer, and other appliances make cooking or baking a joy for small or larger groups.
Downstairs, you enter through the slate entry area to find a photography gallery/carpeted open yoga/exercise area which includes two futons for additional sleeping. It’s also a great place for kids to play if you want them to have their space separate from the rest of the group. The downstairs bedroom has a wonderful view facing out to the ocean, and the Japanese-style tatami room makes for a serene meditation room.
The Sea Sanctuary is truly a beautiful home which can help to make your vacation by the sea very relaxing and extra memorable.
