Our home gives you the opportunity to be as active or relaxed as you wish - cook up a storm or choose from a number of local restaurants, read, nap, step out the door and hike the forest or ocean bluff trails, enjoy our private hot tub or go to any of three community complexes with heated pools, sauna, tennis courts. We are in a banana belt spot with more sun and less wind than the ocean bluff. We have a panoramic ocean view, with lots of wild life you can watch from the living room, dining room or deck (deer, wild turkeys, rabbits, many variety of birds, and the occasional fox).
Our recent remodel allows a cozy, secure environment with heated floor, efficient wood stove, double pane glass, comfortable furniture, all within an original, traditional Sea Ranch style home where 'living lightly on the land' is practiced.
We encourage you to come sample our bit of paradise--you will keep coming back, as we have done for 35+ years!
Our mini vacation could not have been more relaxing, breathtaking and peaceful. Your home is beautiful, has all the amenities to make it feel just like a home-away-from-home. We loved the heated floors, hot tub and living room. The quick trails behind the property were a fabulous way to start the mornings, and sitting on the deck listening to the ocean made all my stress disappear. We expect to make this trip again. You were such hospitable owners. Thank you!!
The owners are Doug and Elke Paul. Doug is a native Californian, Elke is from Germany. They met and were engaged within 3 weeks! They have two grown children, and have been coming to Sea Ranch as a family since 1975. Doug was a tax CPA, now partially retired. Elke is a Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner. Her passion at Sea Ranch is to work in her garden and to hike. Doug is on the Archives committee at Sea Ranch, and is enjoying coming to Sea Ranch without working on the remodel!
Sea Ranch is one of the few places where I totally relax and drop all of the 'every day' issues that consume so much of our energy and thoughts. To me it is an escape to recharge one's batteries.
Total comfort in a mild climate with as much or as little to do as I wish.
The Sea Ranch is a private community established in the 1960s with the underlying philosophy of 'living lightly on the land.' The homes nestle into the landscape and must be of earth colors. Views are maximized, and structures are clustered, leaving a maximum of open space. Just 5 miles north is the lumber town of Gualala, which has been transformed into a village with services for any needs. The Sea Ranch property includes trails thru meadows and forests in addition to the bluff trails and beaches. There are three recreation centers, and a historic barn.
Other Activities: wildlife viewing, basketball, shopping, kayaking
