JUST STEPS FROM THE OCEAN

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.

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.

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.

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.

GREAT PLACE, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The pictures don't really do this house justice. It is very nice. We had a great stay. Incredibly relaxing, nice hot tub, great views and nice hiking along the bluff. Caveat: Buy your food in "civilization" before arriving. We paid 12 bucks a pound and a total of $52 (yes, $52) for two crabs in Gualala. On the plus side the crab was really good. Aside from that you can't beat this sweet retreat. Excellent communication from the owner and very quick refund of the deposit. Highly recommended.

Steps from the Ocean was our first choice, having perused the listings for doggy-friendly homes that were near the bluff trail. Keith could not have been easier to work with, and was very responsive to my emails and calls. In fact, there was a (brief) power outage while we were there, and he even phoned our home number (he didn't have our cell numbers), leaving us the information he'd received about the outage from PG&E on our answering machine. Very thoughtful! We were there with another couple, and the home was ideal for us, with what is essentially 2 master suites. The kitchen was fully-equipped; the entire home was very nicely appointed. (We even admired the artwork!) A bonus from Keith was a binder, clearly indexed, with all you'd need to know about the home and the area. The fireplace kept us cozy, with more than enough wood stacked and available for our use. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this very comfortable and beautiful home. We definitely plan to return!

NOT QUITE STEPS FROM THE OCEAN BUT NICE

  • 4 of 5
The house is very nice and easy to live in for a long weekend. We were disappointed that it wasn't close to the ocean and that the view was a peek-a-boo if you walked out to the corner of the backyard. The master bedroom bed was super comfortable! It's a great place to get away and relax and be quiet. The owners obviously take pride in the property.

COMFORTABLE HOME

  • 5 of 5
I recently stayed here with a friend and found the place to be very comfortable with easy access to the coast trail. Had fun watching a bobcat dart around the homes in view.
Thanks.

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
A group of friends stayed at Keith's delightful home for the weekend and had the best time. The home is incredibly cozy and warm. The appliances were incredible for cooking. Keith was beyond easy to communicate with and very thoughtful. The home is in a great location and the hot tub was great! Everything was carefully laid out and executed. A great stay. Will definitely be back!

SEA RANCH VISIT

  • 4 of 5
This was a very nice property, clean, comfortable and well provisioned with a lot of helpful "what to do, where to go" information compiled by the owner. For me, the 2br, 2 bath house was a perfect size for my 10 day stay. Visitors may not have cell coverage, but a landline is available for use at the house if necessary and most 4G+ devices can find WiFi access for internet and email. Wildlife abound in the area and I had at least two visits by groups of grazing deer right outside the living room window. The owner is dog friendly, if that's a consideration. The trail network is nearby and easy to access. Walking along the ocean bluff trail a mile north to see the seal cove sanctuary is a must! I'd stay here again.
