Adagio means to play at a slower pace. Our light and airy contemporary home invites you to slow down and rejuvenate.
Located west of Highway One (the ocean side), the house has an inverted floor plan with large windows all around. A spacious living/dining/kitchen area offers broad views of ocean, meadow and woods. Relax at night in the hot tub under a star-studded sky. There's a telescope for whale watching and wildlife watching. Wireless high-speed internet access is also provided.
Three bedrooms are downstairs, very private and decorated in contemporary colors. The master bedroom (king bed) has a bath with jacuzzi. The middle bedroom (queen bed) opens to a courtyard and hot tub. A third bedroom (twin beds) has its own TV & DVD. The family room also has a foldout sofa bed and another TV & DVD, plus stereo, VCR, and a library of books, tapes, games, puzzles, music and movies.
A trailhead to the ten-mile bluff trail is directly across from the house. It follows a gorgeous coastline and leads to several beaches. You'll find crashing waves, harbor seals, tide pools, and a variety of shore birds.
You're a two-minute walk to a recreation area with an outdoor pool heated year-round plus tennis courts, and sauna. The golf course is a few minutes in the other direction. The town of Gualala, five mintues away, has good restaurants, art galleries, clothing shops, and gourmet food stores.
Evergreen forest surrounds the house on two sides. Wildlife (deer, hawks, harriers, kestrels, jack rabbits, foxes, great blue herons) are common in the meadow areas. The hedgerow along the south side of the property is great for children who like to romp and make forts out of fallen branches. There's a children's playground, beach, tide pool access and a marine sanctuary about a mile away.
-Available year round.
-Booked and managed by Oceanview Properties in Gualala. Cleaning and linen service available. Deposit and pet fee required. Call for more information or email below to contact owner.
Sea Ranch is the special place our family has come to for years. We love this house and its gorgeous privacy and we drive up from the Bay Area when we can (not often enough!). It's such a great place to spend time with friends and family. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have. I'm the one who manages the rentals for the house and look forward to hearing from you.
Beverly B purchased this house in 1999
We were vacationing in a nearby house when we discovered Adagio for sale. It didn't take long to decide we wanted it. The family before us loved the house as we do now. We've shared many important occasions here with family and friends—birthdays, reunions, farewells, and get-better-acquainted time.
How we spend our time: whale watching, walking the headland, picnicking at the beach, trips to town for great meals, shopping, kayaking the rivers, swimming, tennis, observing seals with their new pups & cormorants feeding babies on precarious cliff walls, lazy hours reading. Time is hard to track at the beach.
We have recently placed our house on the VRBO website. We have many lovely
comments previous guests have written in the book at Adagio and we look
forward to comments from our online bookings.
Lovely home environment; upstairs, especially in afternoon, offers light, sea and sky views. Our inlaws enjoyed the hot tub--said it was very clean water, very nice temperature. Great location: We enjoyed the easy access to the cliff walk and the short trip to Gualala--shopped, went to the art museum, walked in the redwoods, all easily accessible. My husband used the swimming pool conveniently nearby. The kitchen has all the dishes, utensils, pots and pans needed; there is a CD player, CDs, books, TV, games. Enough reading light. Not for people with disabilities or crawling babies; has stairs.
The home was so well stocked with basics that the only thing we really "had" to bring was food.
(the restaurant at Sea Ranch is excellent, too!). Lots of good books, videos, games, and gorgeous views. Everything was in working order. Our only issue was when we had a few very hot days, we could not cool off the MBR downstairs by opening windows - no screens - and very aggressive flies came in.The downstairs entry was super convenient, too.The place is so clean and well tended, only an idiot would leave it in poor shape. We plan on going back, and perhaps making this an annual event to get away from our 112+ degrees in Roseville. Oh, lots of lovely wildlife all around us, and the beaches and trails are extremely walkable. I am a picky person after 5 joint replacements, and the clarity of the beach access maps made it possible for me to do the "impossible" - scramble down a cliff to the beach :) A big thank you - to the owners!
This was our second stay at Adagio and as perfect as the last. The house is so lovely and comfortable! Ocean views and the forest too. We especially appreciate how quiet and private it is, yet not far from the recreation center -- pool, spa and tennis courts. We came with family and friends, ate at Trinks (also recommended) in Gualala about 5 minutes north but cooked in most meals. The kitchen has everything.
I hiked the bluff trail each morning. This stretch of coastline is the most beautiful of all. Will definitely be returning next summer.
we stayed at sea ranch this past month for 3 nights. we were disappointed in this rental in comparison to other rentals that are at this community. The pros were it was big, fit our party of 8 comfortably, kitchen was well stocked, hot tub was nice. The cons-dirty, and very outdated ( cracked floor tiles in places, dirty grout in showers and floors, etc). The manager was nice and sent a list of what we needed and what was supplied but many of lightbulbs were out and we didn't think we would need to supply those. This place also has many hidden costs such as: linen use charge , service fee to have them write you a check to get your deposit back. There is a cleaning fee/ security deposit. The understanding is you can clean the place or they charge you an hourly fee. We showed up saw that it was kind of dirty and was suprised by this being they have these cleaning fees. We then cleaned the place for hours when we left but we still got charged a hour of cleaning especially after we mentioned to the management property the state in which we recieved the place. Would not recommend this place in the future. Better well kept places available to rent.
My stay at Adagio was wonderful. The house decor is very comfortable and aesthetically pleasing, and the house is clean and well-maintained. The design of the house is beautiful--it feels spacious and light. The layout of the house was perfect for our group of 4. Some people could be talking or watching TV in the den downstairs while others could read quietly or enjoy the great views of the ocean and meadow from the living room upstairs. We prepared most of our meals at the house, and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. When we did go out for a delicious meal at Trink's in Gualala and some shopping, it only took 7 minutes to get there. It's only a few minute walk to the pool, and there are wonderful hiking trails right there. The owners were very helpful and responsive in answering my questions before I booked Adagio. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone.
Close to Del Mar clubhouse with beautiful outdoor pool, tennis courts, sauna, meeting room, exercise classes.
