MyWorld#1 - Sunset Beach, California Landmark


This 19th Century Wooden Water Tower
in Sunset Beach, California
is a vacation rental.

It contains a 3-level living space including
a large bar in the tower-top
view room.
The unique landmark stands 87 feet tall ... is 30 feet in diameter ... and offers an amazing view of the coastal area from Newport Beach to San Pedro and Catalina to the San Bernardino Mountains. I snapped these photos over the weekend after breakfast at the nearby Harbor House Cafe with my sister and her husband.

Click for others participating in My World.
That's My World for this Tuesday.
Thanks to the My World Team:

I apologize for neglecting Simply Kind Tuesdays and Monday Motivator this week and will try to get myself back on track next week, if not here ... then on another blog. Clicking on the links will take you to my previous posts for each in case you missed them and you have time to check them out.

Wow, wouldn't that be a fun place to stay! I'm guess the price is not so fun though :(

I'd love to visit that part of Cal. again and see if anything I remember is still there.

What an amazing place to stay! Just visiting would be very cool. I love high places where I can get a good view. Thanks for sharing!

I'm playing this week, too!

I like your thoughts and the watertower is great!I have never seen a tower like that. We have only concrete watertowers.

George said...

What a unique rental unit. I would enjoy staying there if I thought I could afford it.

SandyCarlson said...

That's an amazing space. I would love to see the inside. What a great use of the thing.

I had a ridiculous thought of Petticoat Junction and the three sisters in the water tower. If only they knew they were swimming in posh real estate of the future!

Mojo said...

What an ubercool idea! That rocks! I'd love to have a place like that... imagine the photos from the top...

Nah, when I fantasize about a vacation right now, I'm picturing something lower. A cabin in the woods?

chrome3d said...

It seems it doesn´t have a lift? I´ll think about it then if I want to spend my vacation there.

Arija said...

What a wonderful place to spend a holiday!

Larry Jordan said...

What a great place. I would love to spend some time there. How far from the beach is it?

I'd love to see the inside too. I bet that's cool!

Joyce said...

What an interesting landmark! The view sounds marvelous.

Enjoy this special time with your sister and her husband, and please don't worry about doing more posting. :)

Very unusual place to stay! It would be quite a buzz to be at the top of that tower! And a history as well! Fascinating!

Karen said...

I wanted to see the inside, too, but though I searched, no luck! That would be pretty cool, indeed!

Tammy said...

That is pretty cool looking!

Wow! What an interesting place to live. I bet the view is great though!
I just noticed the tiny garage at the bottom :)

Hope you're getting a chance to take a breather from the blogosphere!

Alice Audrey said...

Cool. I'd love to stay there sometime.

Ms. Hays said...

I can't be sure, but it seems like this tower was the setting in a book by Dean Koontz! I may be mistaken, because it's been a while since I read the book, but it very well could have been! Nice shots!!!

Dianne said...

cool!! I would love to stay there

Brenda ND said...

Wow, I think I'd like to visit this watertower. What a cool concept.

Michelle said...

What a neat place to take a vacation. I'm so fascinated that this is a vacation rental. Thanks for the little tid bits of history. Love that. Have a great weekend.

Since I'm known to like water tower pictures someone sent me here to see yours. I was not disappointed. What a neat tower!
