Ground level condo w/fireplace, large kitchen, two bathrooms, ocean balcony. Living room gives sweeping view of beach and oceanfront. Kitchen complete with dishwasher and dishes for a crowd! Wifi and 50 easy steps to the beach make this a fun place for mixed generations to enjoy! Oceanfront bedroom has queen bed and balcony. Remaining two bedrooms on street side are large and nautically-themed; one has a king-size bed, the other, a queen-size.
No smoking in the condo. No pets.
Captain's Quarters is one of eight condos in our building. Since it is perched on the low sea cliff, we can enjoy winter storms and balmy summer breezes in the condo. Or campfires and long walks on the beach. An oceanfront condo with a fireplace is the best place to be in the world! Cuddle up to the fireplace, or step outside onto the ocean balcony, and enjoy the amazing sight and sound of the mighty Pacific!
The condo is equipped with basic spices (salt, pepper, garlic salt, lemon pepper, onion powder, and Italian seasoning) plus oil and oil spray. We also have coffee filters, and an adequate array of cooking pans, pots, bowls, a crock pot, blender, waffle iron, casserole dishes, and utensils. If something you need is missing, please ask Mike the manager...he is very good at finding just what you want!
Two bedrooms have queen beds, and a third has a king-size. The couch in the front room also folds out into a queen-size bed. So this two bathroom condo sleeps 8 quite easily! Please let us know at time of booking the number of guests in your party, since our rates are based on occupancy, and Mike the manager does count noses :)
For your planning purposes: our rates are based on occupancy. Extra guests over the number of two cost only $10/person/night, and are quoted in your price when you include the total persons in your party. This makes our condo affordable for couples or families. If you arrive with additional guests who are undeclared, our extra person charge is $20/person/night.
Location, location, location! Captain's Quarters has the exploding horizon of sand and surf, which is always interesting, no matter the weather. No more beachfront is being made, so this unique cliffside condo with a fabulous view is a treasure to us.
Beach access is 50 gentle steps with one rail down to beach, or you can actually DRIVE down the ramp to the sand! During April - Sept, many people like to park their cars on the beach (right below the condo) when the tide is out! But twice a day, the tide rolls in, and clears everybody out!!!
Bring your own BBQ to enjoy at the beach, or bring some starter wood to light a campfire on the beach! (The driftwood is often wet and hard to start without dry wood from home!).
Interaction with guests
Mike and Rosie are the on-site managers and very helpful. At the time of booking, you can access AirBnb's House Manual, which contains my Welcome Letter and access info. With that, you can let yourself into our condo anytime after 4 pm :)
