Overview

Sea Ranch House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Renowned architect Elee Tsai designed this stunning home – just a stone’s throw from the water’s edge -- to be a reflection of our soul’s connection with heaven and earth. Uniquely situated on one of the most spectacular Pacific coast bluff sites, Vista Del Mar (“View of the Sea”) boasts broad, unobstructed white and blue water ocean views from the living room, dining room, kitchen and all three bedrooms. Absorb the powerful force of the waves against the black rocks…feel (and smell) the ocean breeze on your face…this is The Sea Ranch at its absolute best.

Recently remodeled, Vista Del Mar features an elegant open floor plan with soaring exposed-beam ceilings and warm wood detailing throughout. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, it’s a short 10-minute walk to the Ohlson Recreation Center and beach where you can swim, play tennis and enjoy a relaxing sauna.

Musicians love taking in our glorious seaside sunset view while playing the Steinway Baby Grand piano – and everyone enjoys the comfy window seats, cozy fireplace and wood-burning stove. Movie fans can curl up in front of the large flat-screen TV (with DirectTV satellite) enhanced by the dramatic surround sound experience of our Bose Acoustimass entertainment center. And those that can’t entirely escape the outside world will appreciate the free nationwide phone service.

The chef(s) in your group will flip over the large, well-equipped gourmet kitchen with its exquisite Honduran Mahogany cabinetry. Grill masters and BBQ mavens always appreciate our high-quality, outdoor grill (with direct propane connection). Overlooking the crashing ocean waves, the spacious 1600 sq. foot deck gives everyone plenty of space to relax and unwind in our classic Adirondack deck chairs. If you visit in spring or late fall, keep your eyes peeled for seasonal migrating whales. After dinner, why not gaze at the moon in the star-filled sky while enjoying a relaxing soak in our new 50-jet spa tub (which can be closed off for complete privacy).

With its spacious 2400 square feet, Vista Del Mar’s three bedrooms and a loft offer comfortable sleeping for eight adults. The home’s warm, welcoming ambiance – complemented by tasteful furnishings – creates the perfect escape for relaxation and enjoyment of nature’s beauty. Bed linens and towels are available upon request. Please inquire about children under the age of 12.

About John Reis

We’re proud to be the second generation in our family to own this beautiful home – and we've created countless warm holiday memories here. When the opportunity presented itself to assume sole ownership, it was truly a dream come true. Because Vista Del Mar was originally designed and lived in as the family’s year-round residence, we realized we didn't want our beloved house sitting idle in between our own getaways to Sea Ranch (we now reside on the San Francisco peninsula). And, as it turns out, making Vista Del Mar available to responsible families and/or couples as a vacation rental was the way to go.

John Reis purchased this house in 1968

Why John Reis chose Sea Ranch

The land was purchased when Sea Ranch first sprang up as a community (way back in the late 60’s when there were only dirt roads). Being pioneers in this new town, our family was able to select the cream of the crop from all the available lots. Knowing that an ocean-front home – with steps-away access to a secluded beach – was on everyone’s wish list, the unique lot on which Vista Del Mar now sits became part of the family. Speaking of family, our guests often comment how “luxuriously inviting” it feels to stay with us. One main reason is this home wasn't built to be a part-time, weekend getaway house. From day one, the family was committed to designing a home to be enjoyed as their personal residence.

What makes this house unique

There truly is nothing like Vista Del Mar in all of Sea Ranch. With comfortable sleeping space for eight adults, every room in our 3,000+ sq. foot home has an unobstructed ocean view. The large, well-equipped kitchen is a cooks’ dream, the rec room has a foosball table and there’s even a reading library and stocked games closet. Or just relax in front of the 46” HDTV (with 230+ channels). As far as music goes, we have an amazing Bose Acoustimass 10-speaker sound system – as well as a baby grand piano in the main living area that overlooks the ocean. Step outside and enjoy the 1,600 sq. foot deck (with a BBQ wired into home’s gas line) and a private ocean-view spa. You’re only 50 feet away from the ocean bluffs where you can explore the secluded beach directly below. Vista Del Mar offers a tranquil getaway and convenient access to the best part of the California coast. We know that you will come to love Sea Ranch just as our family has.

A Memorable Experience!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Vista Del Mar with a group of old friends. What a wonderful home! Very clean, comfortable and well stocked. The views are amazing, just steps from the ocean bluff and walking trails. We loved watching the sunset from the large deck overlooking the ocean. We all were wistful about leaving this exceptional home. I love the Sea Ranch and I love Vista Del Mar!

Magnificent Home !!!

  • 5 of 5
This Sea Ranch home is breathtaking! We came here for a family birthday celebration and it was the highlight on our calendar for many months and we had been looking forward to our visit with great anticipation. This home exceeded our expectations in every possible way. The home was spotless, absolutely immaculate. The kitchen very well equipped. We loved the beautiful walks by the ocean and then returning to the home and playing the piano as the sunset was setting over the ocean. The beach just below the house had a gorgeous delicate waterfall and there was even a nice area for wind-sheltered picnicking and it was fun watching the harbor seals play in the surf. This home set the bar pretty high. No need to travel anywhere else, ever!! The owner was immediately attentive to our every question. We enjoyed our stay so much, and YES, we will return here as soon as possible!

Could not have been more perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for much for allowing our family to stay at your home at Sea Ranch. It was the first time our family of 8 had gotten together in 15 years! Everyone felt like they were in paradise with a perfect setting for all of the things we love to do outdoors, as well as rest, read, breathe!!!! Being in such a comfortable and private setting allowed us to reconnect and look forward to the next time! We look forward to getting together again soon! Very renewing for all of us! Bless you and your lovely home and all who enter there!

What a home!

  • 5 of 5
The home was absolutely perfect for our group of 8. We spent a long weekend and mostly stayed in! Wonderfully equipped kitchen for dinners in, evenings in the “great room” with room for everyone to visit, and a terrific location. We had some musicians who loved the Steinway grand piano. This property is definitely a step -- or many steps -- above the usual vacation rental home, but definitely worth the extra money. We've stayed at numerous vacation properties all over and I have to say this home was easily the most comfortable home we've ever stayed at. When we did venture into town -- Gualala is just a seven minute drive away – we found a couple of excellent restaurants, a fine-foods store, a bookstore and a first-rate crafts gallery. John was very helpful before our arrival answering our questions. I’d highly recommend Vista Del Mar and we plan to come back and make this an annual retreat!

Amazing in every way!

  • 5 of 5
The house itself is in a stunning location, and the interior of the home is beautiful and welcoming. It is a true home and the moment we stepped in the door we all felt the great energy in the house. The owner was responsive and a pleasure to work with. We would definitely go back! We spent hours just watching the whales and sea lions while sitting on the back deck. It was a special weekend! Thank you so much!!

Perfect getaway for our family

  • 5 of 5
We just spent a few days with family at this gorgeous home right on the ocean, in the company of seabirds, seals and whales. The secluded beach right in front of the house was perfect - smooth sand to play on, crashing waves and privacy. We went for many walks and runs along the cliffs, and ventured to the Del Mar Centre to swim in the lovely heated pool. The house was fantastic - spacious, immaculate, incredibly well-equipped, comfortable and with incredible views from every room. We enjoyed the wood burning fireplace and the hot tub. It was a fantastic break from the snowy winter in Canada, and we all look forward to a return visit! Thank you for sharing your lovely home.
