My parents purchased our family vacation home in 1990 after several years of renting homes on The Sea Ranch and searching for the perfect home for us.
My father wanted a house in the forest and my mother wanted something close to the ocean. This home is the perfect blending of the two.
My father, 80, is a retired teacher and my mother, 79, worked for the State of California. They still manage the property with help from myself and my teenage son, Josh.
I am a special education teacher and have a small organic farm with horses, dogs, chickens, orchards and crops and live about ten miles from my parents in the Central Valley of California.

Robinson Jeffers, Carmel poet, said it well, 'the ocean gives perpetual music and the stone mountain its music of silence.'
We are blessed to be able to share our peaceful home with you. Since our house is located in the forest, we do not have the foot or road traffic the other places do. We rarely see people or cars in the area or on the trails nearby and appreciate the serenity.
The ocean, towns and beaches are closeby to explore and there are plenty of things to do in addition to just quietly relaxing in the redwoods.
