And for the golf enthusiast, it’s ideally positioned just north of the world-renown Bandon Dunes Golf Resort.

Lushly landscaped and private, the four-bedroom, three-full-and-one-half-bathroom home is sited on a “magnificent promontory” for exceptional views. According to the listing it is “intensely private, with end of the road seclusion” and affords “an awe-inspiring panorama of stunning vistas from every room.”

Steal: Seaside Bungalow With Incredible Ocean Views For $699K

 

For a fraction of the price, you could hole up in this darling seaside bungalow! The one-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage affords a spacious 786 square feet on a .023-acre lot with prime ocean views.

According to the listing, the cottage is built on a stable bluff edge in a choice spot for whale watching.

Here you can see waves crashing on magnificent sea-stack rock formations with spectacular sunsets. It is apparently known for front-row winter storm watching through its westerly wall of windows.

The home is billed as being “large enough in size to sleep six.” This bodes well for those looking to supplement their second home with rental income. In fact, the listing notes that it’s a “high occupancy vacation rental with bookings to be honored.”
