Gualala Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Stand alone cottage, spacious studio, 1 Bath, full kitchen
WHITE WATER OCEAN BLUFF COTTAGE -
I can't thank Tom & Susan enough for sharing their slice of heaven with us. The view is beyond amazing. The furniture is comfortable & their house was very clean. It was much bigger than we expected. The hot tub was pleasant and there are touches of thoughtfulness throughout the cottage. IE. Robes, spare blankets to snuggle, land line if we were without service. Their suggestions getting to their location, and other suggestions. They thought of everything. It was hard to leave knowing that we were in the most beautiful part of the country.

About Tom or Susan
Susan and I met in 2000 and discovered we both had the desire to live close enough to the ocean to see and hear the ever changing ocean and waves. As a professional photographer I could not be happier with our surroundings. In five minutes we can be walking amongst huge old redwood trees along the Gualala River or kayak on the very same river or standing on the beach. Susan finds a wealth of inspiration for her various artwork creations along this coastal area.
Tom or Susan purchased this cottage in 2006
Why Tom or Susan chose Gualala
Susan and I found this 2 acre property and saw the potential of having an incredible view of the ocean and well as the sounds of the waves crashing below. After building the our house we completed the Ocean Cottage in August of 2006. As you can read in the guest comments log, many people call the Ocean Cottage their favorite vacation get away. Come find out why.
What makes this cottage unique
The views are larger than can be shown on this site. Whales, Pelicans, osprey complete with a dangling fish, hawks, ravens as well as numerous other birds entertain as only nature can. Seeing the ever changing ocean will keep you fascinated for hours. If you are a dog owner, there is an off leash beach 1 mile from the cottage. We take our border collie, Dave, almost daily.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Words cannot express how magical this weekend has been. This cottage is truly special. I came here alone to get away from it all and spend some time by myself and I really did find exactly what I was looking for in this little gem on the sea. I did a lot of exploring and found this area to be one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. The locals here and in Point Arena were all very sweet. Shell Beach is worth checking out and the Dolphin Art Gallery here in Gualala is a neat shop...you'll see more of Tom's photography there, too, which is quite lovely. I don't want to ever go home. I want to bring everyone I love here - just so they can experience the beauty I have. The weather has been perfect all weekend. I've never seen stars so bright at night. And watching the waves hit the rocks so hard as though they're trying to knock them over is a memory I won't soon forget. Wake up at 6:30 am and watch the sunrise. Don't miss the sunset, either. I was very comfortable here and have already begun checking out my calendar to see when I can come back! This has been one of the best weekends of my life! Thank you for sharing this wonderful place, Tom and Susan. I will be back as soon as I can.
