Their airy, breezy, blue oasis has been professionally curated by design professionals and features products from Arhaus, Serena and Lily, and One King’s Lane, and bursts with a coastal, vivacious vibe.

The bunk room is an almost soundproof haven for fort building or movie watching and can sleep 8 kids with two full beds and 4 twins, has its own TV, a lounge-like sectional, a swing, and even a sliding barn door.
The house also comes with fat-tire bikes, fishing gear, filled to the brim toy boxes, and a multitude of kites to enchant flyers of all ages. Try the Traeger Wood Pellet Grill and Smoker that infuses your meal with hickory, apple, pecan, cherry, or mesquite flavors and can braise, boil, barbecue, and even smoke your meal! There’s even an ice cream maker for creating uniquely icy delights. And don’t forget the putting green! Frankly, you may never want to leave.
Both families enjoy the off season at the beach too, when the weather is cooler, the crowds thinner, and the town easier to navigate. Lori’s favorite time of year in Port A is autumn, but Lost Shaker of Salt has hosted both families for holidays, like Thanksgiving and New Year’s, opening up a whole new opportunity to experience the beach culture in novel ways. From fireworks to boat-building, from crab boils, to summer concert series, at Palmilla Beach you can create a lifetime of happy memories and at Lost shaker of Salt you can luxuriate in a light-filled home with panache and personality.
