THE SPACE

THE SPACE

Built by one of the first surfers who migrated here in the 1970s, this cozy cottage was expanded and remodeled into a charming escape. Beautiful woodwork, natural lighting and simple comfortable furnishings create an aesthetic that allows your mind and body to unwind. 

The main gathering area is largely open with well-equipped kitchen, living and dining area with cathedral ceilings. 

There is one private bedroom and an open sleeping loft. Stairs to the loft are a bit steep, but the skylight creates a open and natural feel. The ceiling is low in the loft, so watch your head! 

There is a a separate reading nook. A deep covered porch, complete with sofa and rocker, runs the length of the house, allowing you to live indoors or out. 

A lovely yard with large live oaks, native plants and natural visitors invites you to enjoy more than just the beach. Just sit back, and soak it all in. Also outside, a luxurious private shower helps you rinse off the beach and enjoy the freedom of outdoor bathing.
