SECLUDED GETAWAY IN THE REDWOOD FOREST, YET CLOSE TO OCEAN WITH BEACH ACCESS

Sea Ranch House Rental Photos and Description

Comfortable cabin-esque forest home, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Moonraker House is located approximately 107 miles north of San Francisco off historic and scenic Highway 1.

Our two bedroom, two bathroom home has an upstairs deck, private hot tub, WiFi, cable televisions, a fully equipped kitchen with bedroom linens and bathroom towels provided.

With 50 miles of private beach, bluff, and forest trails, picnic areas, tide pools, three recreational centers, two marine reserves, a fenced dog park, and an 18 hole championship golf course, there is something for everyone to do without leaving the local area.

Gualala, the closest town, is 8.7 miles north with grocery stores, specialty shops, restaurants, a bank, post office, and gas stations.

Six hundred fenced sheep and goats graze the common areas to eliminate fire hazards and follow The Sea Ranch philosophy of living lightly off the land.

The artist community of Mendocino is fifty-eight miles north and Fort Bragg is nine miles north of Mendocino. Both places are perfect day trips to explore, shop and eat. Charter boats are available for fishing and whale watching in Fort Bragg.

Grey whale migrate December through March and can often be seen off the shore or by boat.

Seal pups are born late March and early April and can be viewed from the bluff trail above the reserve.

Observe pelicans, cormorants, and oyster catchers from ocean bluffs and on the beach

Redwood violets and trilliums bloom around our house in March and April. Then in May and June the Rhododendrons are in full flower.

The Sea Ranch thespians present two productions a year, one in spring, and one in fall.

About Michael, Patricia, Catherine and Josh

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.

Michael, Patricia, Catherine and Josh purchased this house in 1990

Why Michael, Patricia, Catherine and Josh chose Sea Ranch

Robinson Jeffers, Carmel poet, said it well, 'the ocean gives perpetual music and the stone mountain its music of silence.'

What makes this house unique

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.

Lovely and private

  • 5 of 5
We spent our honeymoon at Moonraker House and we LOVED IT. The house is unique and beautiful, perfect for 2 people (or 4). We enjoyed the hot tub and especially appreciated the wood fireplace. The owners added some sweet personal touches that made us feel extra welcome. The house is really comfortable and homey and feels really private. The 3 stories made us feel like we had so much space, even though the actual footprint of the house is small. We just loved every minute there, and every interaction we had with the owners was pleasant and helpful. Nearby Gualala is an adorable town and there are so many fun beaches to explore within 20 minutes either way on Hwy 1. If you are looking for a private, comfortable home base from which to enjoy the Gualala/Sea Ranch area, Moonraker House is the perfect option. Many thanks to the owners for making our stay so special.

Memorial Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful weekend with lots of peace, quiet and privacy. There is plenty of room for 2 couples or a family with 1 or 2 children. The hot tub was sublime; the kitchen fully equipped; the decor was kitchy and fun. We can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: We enjoy our house at Sea Ranch because it gives us the best of two worlds, wonderful outdoor activity and peace and privacy without sacrificing basic comfort. We love morning coffee on the small back deck, the spa for relaxing and seeing stars from the deck. We are always happy to hear that others enjoyed it as well.

This was an excellent choice for my wife and I and our son and daughter-in-law. The arrangement of the house on 3 levels gave both couples great privacy. Woodsy setting is absolutely beautiful. Highly recommend it.

Thanks for taking time to review our house. We love our house for just the qualities you mentioned, the peaceful setting, the sound of the wind in the redwoods, the stars from the deck, and the sound of the ocean. We were happy to share it with you.

My favorite place to stay at Sea Ranch

  • 5 of 5
I've rented probably seven or eight houses at Sea Ranch over the years, and this is by far my favorite, and my husband's too. Love the location in the redwoods, the access to the trails, the private hot tub. It's just a secluded, romantic getaway. Because it's on 3 levels and has the deck up top, it feels much bigger than it is. Well appointed, everything I need for cooking, wi-fi, etc. Nicely furnished and everything's comfortable and works well. It's also, oddly enough, probably the cheapest place I've rented up here.

But I think it's really this--You know how some places just "feel" right? That's how this place is. Whether it's the fact that the owners are good people (I don't know them so couldn't say, but I'm guessing yes), or it has good feng shui (about which I also know nothing!) or whatever, my pulse drops and I start relaxing as soon as I walk in the door.

I almost hate to review it, because it might make it less available! But I do want to say, thanks for making this place available. I sure appreciate it.
