Overview

Sea Ranch House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Charming beach cottage in the desirable south end of Sea Ranch. Two bedrooms, each with king beds and separate bathrooms, large living room with wood burning fireplace, gourmet kitchen, vaulted wood ceilings, warm and sunny decks and beautiful views of ocean, meadow and mountains. A stone’s throw from the Bluff Trail and the ocean and a short walk to Pebble and Black Point Beaches and the Sea Ranch Lodge. Located on a quite, dead-end street far from the highway. Recently enhanced with skylights, new hot tub and deck, wine cooler, appliances, carpet, furniture, granite countertops, custom decorator touches and lots more. High Speed Wireless access, computer and iPod ready surround sound system!! Bring your work and all your tunes and stay an extra week.

The Sea Ranch is internationally known and revered for its attempt to blend man-made structures with their natural setting. This most picturesque area of California, 100 miles north of San Francisco dotted with distinctive homes, spreads for about ten miles on either side of Highway One in the coastal Sonoma County. The building design is unique in its architecture, and the challenge to 'live lightly on the land' is on-going.

With three swimming pools, saunas, tennis courts, a 18-hole championship golf course, and 45 miles of hiking trails that meander along the coastal cliffs, through meadows and forests, there is no shortage of outdoor activity for your Sea Ranch vacation. And after a hard day of having fun, soak in the spa, have a glass of wine and enjoy the sunset over the ocean.

Why Keith Brown chose Sea Ranch

Sea Ranch is without equal. The ocean, mountains, wildlife - a little something for everyone in one of the most pleasant and tranquil climates on the planet.

What makes this house unique

A four mile hike to Two Fish Bakery is definitely on the agenda to start each morning. The hike begins after stepping out the front door and into the coastal meadow which surrounds house. Slowly the pounding of the surf receeds as you make your way from the ocean and into the trees and up the ridge. Tall redwoods tower over head while ferns blanket the ground. Once conquering the ridge, a well-deserved sticky buns awaits at Two Fish and pleasant downhill walk home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really appreciate all of the attention to details that you and your wife obviously went through to make stays here enjoyable and comfortable. I have rented vacation houses for many years and can honestly say that your house is one of the best that I have encountered. Not only are the accommodations, furnishings and amenities nice, clean and comfortable, but all the little "homey" furnishings scattered around make your place feel very welcoming. The binder with all of the information is just amazing. I have never seen anything as well organized and instructive as that in a vacation rental. I mean, you even had instructions on use to use the light switches! The kitchen is well stocked with everything one needs to cook. One little suggestion is that it would have been nice if you had a dish drying rack available. We don't always like to use the dishwasher, especially when something just needs rinsing, so we hand washed quite a few things everyday and placed them on a towel on the counter top.

Perfect Fit

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 humans plus large mutt took full advantage of Keith's house and environs. Every morning after coffee, we explored nearby trails and looked for the sheep herd while our teen slept. The days consisted of longer hikes, seal pup gazing, wildflower photos, swimming at an outdoor heated pool, reading on the deck, golf, yoga class, napping, and grazing on food in the well appointed kitchen. After dinner, we'd catch the sunset on a post-meal stroll along the Bluff Trail, watch movies (amazing house collection), read, and hop in the hot tub to star gaze. We'd never stayed so far south at Sea Ranch and loved exploring new neighborhoods and trails. Would love to rent from Keith again.

Very comfortable and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this 2 bedroom 2 bath homey place! The owner, Keith, was great when we couldn't figure out how to operate the tv/DVD player -- he sent his handyman and apparently the wires in the back were not connected properly, so easy fix. The place was clean and the kitchen was a pleasure to be in. Definitely will consider this one again!

Comfy coastal getaway

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this comfy rental house. The beds were huge and comfortable. The kitchen was well-stocked. And the hot tub was such a treat. Plenty of room for the 4 of us. Great to be close to hiking, beaches, swimming, tennis. We would definitely stay here again.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice house on a quiet street in Sea Ranch. This was our first time in the area, and we had a lot of fun walking to the bluffs and just hanging out relaxing. Gualala is also a fairly short drive if you want to eat out. Everything in the house was very clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable. There was a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived, and it was actually very good! No real complaints, other than the cable wasn't working (yes, we followed the directions to a T), and we couldn't figure out how to get the convection oven to heat up quickly at first. Would definitely recommend this rental.

perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We were able to book a last minute stay and everything was perfect. The owner has prepared a list of favorite to-do's which we found useful, as well as, prepared a variety of useful information. The home was exactly as pictured and the location is fabulous! I highly recommend.
