Overview

Gualala House Rental Photos and Description

House - 2 Master Bedrooms + 2 full bathrooms - (Sleeps 4)

Phoenix Nest, our romantic and spectacular oceanfront vacation home, is nestled on two glorious acres of forest right on the ocean.

The 2500 square foot, newly remodeled home is bright and airy and includes a 44-foot living room with windows throughout overlooking the ocean. The two master bedroom suites also have unsurpassed, sweeping views of the ocean. The house has great privacy. You can hear the waves crash and see the osprey and gulls fly by as the low tide unveils the rocks and sandy beach. Watch gorgeous sunsets from the deck or hot tub.

You will see sea lions surfing or resting on the rocks on the Havens Neck peninsula. We often see gray and humpback whales and recently blue whales spouting and occasionally breaching out of the ocean.

The bluff is like a garden, covered with plants and natural wildflowers. Known as the 'banana belt,' nearby rivers provide a more fog-free and temperate climate than other coastal areas.

Please No Children, Pets Or Smoking Allowed

Unparalleled Beauty: Dear Pat,

We were greeted by deer and the gentle barking 'hellos' of the sea lions. The house is so comfortable--more space than we imagined and the light so wonderful.. The view rates in our top three--following the Grand Canyon, Positano, Italy and tied with Villa Cinciano in Tuscany. As we say farewell to the deer and sea lions, we'll promise to return and will always remember the beauty by day and the peaceful blanket of the Milky Way by night.

Thank you for sharing your spectacular home with us.

Bob and Helene

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awesome, spectacular views!!! The best of all possible worlds--ocean and forest. Your home is so well designed to incorporate the very best views. The music of the ocean infuses and calms us. I needed this spiritual experience.

P.S. Thanks for the champagne and flowers--what a delightful surprise!

Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5
the views at this property are unparalled! we enjoyed sitting out on the deck, stargazing...we also enjoyed the fireplaces and the hot tub. the upstairs living area is large and spacious, and the kitchen is sufficient to make a nice meal. we hit Wild Flour Bakery on the way up there, which is highly recommended too. if you're looking for a chill time with great views of the ocean, consider visiting this place.

A Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
Pat,
Phoenix Nest is amazing... Perfect for two couples in our 50s/60s. It truly creates the feeling of being in a nest high above the ocean and beach! Sitting out on the deck hearing the waves crashing and the distant sounds of barking sea lions was so serene and peaceful. Most days and nights were cloudy and foggy which actually was a great atmosphere. However, one night was crystal clear allowing us to gaze at thousands of stars for hours.
And Haven's Neck peninsula ! Wow! We felt honored to be allowed to hike on such special land. Words can't describe the magical feeling one feels out there.
The house is exactly as portrayed in the photos as well as in the description. And Pat, you could not be a better hostess!

A gem on the sea

  • 5 of 5
As my brother and his wife were visiting from Virginia and had never seen the north coast, I wanted them to experience it. We could not have chosen a better venue for that experience. Waking to barking sea lions, waves crashing against the rocks, breathing fresh air, and just soaking in the beauty of the sea and coast were awesome. This house is SO perfect to get away from it all, and I guarantee we will be visiting again. It's hard to really add to what others have so eloquently stated in their reviews. I highly recommend this beautiful house for romance and/or adventure, as there is so much to see and do! The Thai restaurant in Anchor Bay was quite tasty, but our dining extravaganza at St. Orres was one we shall remember for quite some time and is very highly recommended. Again, can't wait to return! Note, the pictures shown do not do justice to the real beauty of this incredible home!

The Edge of Enchantment

  • 5 of 5
What a gem! Incredible location and the property was everything we could hope for and more. Pat was very easy to work with and our transaction was smooth and efficient. Thank you. This coastline is absolutely breathtaking. We did not want to leave. My husband is an excellent cook so we had most meals in and soaked up the sweeping panorama. And the kitchen has everything you need to make you feel at home. I am a stickler for clean accomodations and Phoenix Nest ranks high on my list. Could not wait to tell my friends.

Perfect Honeymoon Getaway

  • 5 of 5
I believe I looked at about 40 possible rental accommodation options in Northern California for our honeymoon - we selected Phoenix Nest due to the great reviews and beautiful photos. Although I had very high expectations, the place surpassed them! My new husband and I only spent 3 days and nights there, but I wish it were longer. The views are truly spectacular - I think I started jumping up and down when I first looked out the living room windows. Watching hundreds of sea lions on the private beach was a particular treat. The home is beautifully designed, very clean and completely furnished and equipped, with little notes posted around explaining how to work different appliances and fixtures. We enjoyed sunset from the Jacuzzi every night, and spent one day just relaxing and enjoying the house, and another day driving up the coast to Mendocino. Finally, the house owner was very communicative and easy to book with. I couldn't recommend this place more highly - my husband and I are already planning to return for our 5th anniversary!

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
Hello Pat, We are on our way out the door, but we all want to take a quick moment to thank you for this amazing place. We were outside on the deck every morning--the most beautiful weather--and enjoyed every moment of our stay. We all feel that this was the BEST vacation spot ever. We were sad to leave the moment we arrived, and we are already looking forward to our next trip. Breathtakingly beautiful location, thorough info packet, convenient to shopping, completely private, totally comfortable, perfect furnishings and supplies, great beds...The handicapped accessibility--thank you beyond words. Most restful trip ever!
Thanks again and warm wishes,
Laura J.
