About Me

ATTENTION LOT BUYERS!!! Be aware that NOT all lots in the Cove are buildable! Be sure to look at the property and/or complete some form of "due diligence" on any lot prior to paying anyone your hard earned dollars. There are lots of online sales & auctions taking place on Shelter Cove property that will never be buildable. Make sure you give me a call or an email prior to any purchase and I can put you in touch with someone that can help you make an informed decision. Let me help you! This is why I am here!! You'll be glad you called!! 



Vern Bonham III, Broker! I care about the purchase you make because you will be my neighbor! When you work with me you are getting honest representation in the Cove! I am a professional real estate agent with more local knowledge and experience than all the combined offices in Shelter Cove because I have been here since the beginning of the subdivision and I understand the local issues affecting ownership here in the Cove. It is important to me that your transition into your new home or your new property, in the Cove, is a great experience! I am your local Real Estate professional and I am dedicated to your satisfaction. Give me a call or send me an email. I'd love to talk with you about our Beautiful Coastal Community!! 
God Bless you all and God Bless the U.S.A!!!!


I specialize in the sale of Coastal Homes, Lots and Commercial properties in the Cove. I keep abreast of all Real Estate developments in the Shelter Cove Subdivision, Southern Humboldt and the County and I am very knowledgeable about local development, building practices & the local issues.

We met Vern almost 15 years ago when we first came to the Cove for construction work. We only knew him through other people and by reputation. It was all good! We moved back to the Cove about 3 years ago and Vern hired me to build his commercial building on Upper Pacific Drive here in the Cove! He gave me a chance that I had not had, in the Cove, before and during the entire experience Vern has worked with me to finish the project. I know Vern, now, as a personal friend and I can tell you for sure, he is a good man! He is a hard worker and believes in family virtues, values, morals and above all in his faith. I have seen many things change in his life over the past year but his foundation remains true! Vern is a rare commodity in todays world! This guy will do what is right for you!! Give him a call!
