THE FAMOUS FLOWER GARDEN! The front garden of the Ocean River Guest House is a place that people come from all over the area to see. They come to view it's wonderful stand of many tall Pride of Madeira flowering crowned plants. These magnificent plants grow about 20 feet tall, and each year there are many crowns of magnificent purple flowers.

Not only can this artistic property pay it's own mortgage; but only half of the building is set up as a Vacation Rental leaving the rest for the owner's private use. Below is a description of the property two parts; Part 1. for guests and Part 2. for the owner's private use.

1. THE RENTAL (GUEST) PART of the building is approximately 1000 sq. ft.. This portion of the building is what was once the entire original cottage that was built in 1953. Since that time it was fully remodeled in 2010. This remodel included new lighting fixtures, ceramic tile floors throughout, tiled breakfast island, tiled counter tops, new appliances, a large kitchen domed skylight, a custom designed river stone fireplace embedded with geodes, crystals, Mexican tiles and seashells. This 2010 remodel also added brand new roofing; doors; siding; wiring; insulation; plumbing and painting.

This rental (guest) part of the Ocean River Guest House has covered tiled front and back porches; an eat in kitchen; two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom includes the master bathroom and a large walk in cedar closet. The front porch is quite large and a great place for outdoor parties or picnics. The covered back porch is accessed from the master bedroom suite by double glass french doors.

ALTERNATIVE USES; I have been approached on occasion about leasing this property for uses other than a vacation rental by folks wishing to reside in the cottage side while using the private area and ocean view studio for a business. This included people such as Artists; Acupuncturists; Yoga Teachers; Designers; and Therapists. Because the Ocean River Guest House sits just west of Highway 101, it provides excellent exposure for this type of application.
