We had this home built to take advantage of the seascape and want to share this while we live and work in the Bay Area

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

This location is ideally suited for visitors from the Bay Area and Sacramento. You can easily get there after work on a Friday evening. You can choose to enjoy the peace and quiet of the coast or hike and bike to your heart is content. There are also many great artists in the area who share their creations with the community.

The kitchen is fabulous. The view is spectacular. The hot tub and jacuzzi tubs give you a choice of relaxing in soothing water indoors or out.

WONDERFUL!!

  • 5 of 5
For the sake of brevity, rather than repeat in this review all of the wonderful things stated by others in their reviews of Far Niente, let me simply state that what others have written is very accurate. For many years, my friends and I stay in Gualala every July to play golf at the nearby Sea Ranch Golf Links. We had such wonderful three-night stay at Far Niente that I am going to contact Paul and Mary to book their beautiful home for a week in 2015.

THE VIEWS CAN'T BE BEAT!

Our stay at Far Niente was fabulous! We loved just looking at the ocean from the deck and breathing in the fresh ocean air, and gazing at the stars. The booking and all of the logistics were so smooth, and flawless. Even the kitchen is so well laid out and everything is labeled. Wow! Loved it all. Can't wait to return.

The Far Niente house was more than we could have wished for. The photos do not do this place complete justice! Our first impression as we walked in and saw the view was "WOW"! All the "Portalettes" enjoyed all the comforts of the house. We certainly enjoyed our time spent on the deck gazing at the ocean from sunrise to sunset, watching the Giants game on both TVs, hanging out in the living room or in the huge loft upstairs! We had specifically brought the dvd "The Ghost & Mrs.Muir" to watch up here. Close to town if you were to bring bikes with you and easy to find off the main road. With 3 floors, this house is very spacious and there is a view from every bedroom and room!

As the cook of the group, I truly enjoyed the well organized kitchen and your cookbook collection. On our previous rental a few years ago, we were calling friends to bring up essentials - this was not the case - everything a cook needs is here! Bridget, who handles the BBQing, was impressed with the gas grill as we put her and it to work each nite for dinner. The hot tub was enjoyed by the girls as well and they made a new friend, Dino, a small frog on the deck. Everything was clearly labeled and the house handbook was a great reference tool!

One of the best loved things was all the lighthouses that lighted up...they glowed every evening adding to the ambiance. All of us slept really well and stayed cozy warm even without turning on the heater - we just wrapped a blanket around us and enjoyed our time together. It was very hard to leave on Monday morning.

We will certainly be planning another (longer) visit and will recommend Far Niente to our friends as well.

FAR NIENTE, GUALALA

  • 4 of 5
This was our 2nd time staying in Far Niente, Gualala. The house has the best location it could possible have - it has ocean view from every single room, you here the waves roll to shore but you are still at a safe distance to the water. The house just got updated. The kids loved the jacuzzi, the provided movies and games. My husband and I loved the balcony - awesome view and so peaceful. The house in General was clean. However, the cleaners seemed to be in a hurry before our arrival. It was ok. and we know from our previous visit that the house is good taken care if. Gualala us a quiet and peaceful little town, about 1.5 hours south of Mendocino. We'll definitely be back.

Exceeded my expectations. Clean and well stocked. Beautiful views from every room. Great place to unwind and Do Nothing. Loved the shops especially the meat department at the Surf Market and Accents by the sea kitchen shop.
