We loved the bones of this home from the moment that we walked in, but it needed TLC. Nevertheless, the views took our breath away, and we knew it would be a labor of love. So, we spent the latter half of 2012 making this the home that it was meant to be. And since we have roots in Hawaii, we nicknamed her Hale Kai! Since we love to spend time here, we have ensured that everything is exactly the way that we would want it to be if it were our full-time home!

Mike Murphy purchased this house in 2012

We've spent our lives traveling the world, but have yet to find an area more alluring & tranquil than the Mendonoma Coast! So, we thought it only fitting to encourage others to share the splendor that we've discovered. We feel like our home embodies all that we enjoy most about this area....peace, privacy, natural beauty, wildlife, and the indescribable glory of The Sea Ranch at its best!

In addition to all that we love about this home for our own get-away vacations, it also has all the practical features that one would desire, including an oversized 2-car garage, laundry room, butler's pantry, and proximity to wonderful amenities in an exceptional location. Oh, and did we mention views? We hope that you'll enjoy it as much as we do!

Hale Kai at Sea Ranch, CA

Our 25 day stay at your home, Hale Kai was WONDERFUL! This was our first time renting a vacation home and the experience was very positive from beginning to end. Hale Kai was exceptionally clean, beautifully furnished, has spectacular ocean views, as well as being stocked with everything one needs to create a home away from home. Your home is also so close to the Bluff Trail and all the walk on beaches that we and our dog Riley used every day. We loved the nearby town of Gualala and our favorite restaurants were St Orr's and the Sea Ranch Lodge.
Thanks also for the welcome package of wine and the gift certificate to the Sea Ranch local bakery. Once again, we greatly enjoyed the beauty of your Sea Ranch home!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing Hale Kai for your vacation, and we are excited to hear that you had such a great time. We hope that you'll come back soon!

Just returned from a long weekend at the Hale Kai. I don't know what I might possibly add that the other reviewers have not! This is a spectacular rental property. The listing was spot on in its description. The pictures don't do all the amenities justice. This home is well kept and spotless. Beautifully decorated and modern with everything you could possibly need. Dealing with Michael was a delight. I would recommend this property to anyone interested in a beautiful, tranquil, comfy and relaxing getaway. We already have reservations to return in November.

Owner's Response: Thank you! Your decision to return so quickly says it all, and we look forward to your next visit to Hale Kai. We sure appreciate all of your positive comments, and most importantly we love the fact that you enjoyed it so much! Since each season is so different, we know you'll be equally excited when you return later this year.

Absolutely Fantastic!!!!

My wife and our 2, now 3, Bernese Mountain Dogs have stayed at VRBO rentals up and down the west coast. I can say, without a doubt, Hale Kai is the finest accommodations we've experienced thus far. Everything that you can imagine, has been thought of, and supplied. Both my wife and i love to cook and over the years have found that we need to bring various pieces of cookware, utensils, glasses, etc. Not here! We definitely overpacked. Cooking at the kitchen counter overlooking the Pacific is wonderful. The house was impeccably clean. Spotless! Michael, (the owner), must have custom ordered the weather for us. Sunny and mild every single day, with the ocean like a mirror. We walked ourselves tired every day through the meandering trails throughout Sea Ranch. I would recommend Hale Kai to anyone who wishes to get away from it all, forget your cares and enjoy life at it's finest. Unfortunately, the last day of our vacation, I was in a freak accident far up in the coastal mountains and was injured quite badly. Once Michael heard, he was so concerned about my welfare, and insisted if there was anything he could do to help, he would. He kept in touch with me for quite awhile, after our stay, checking on my condition. I was so touched by his genuine concern. Without a doubt, we will be back, and I promise not to go up into the mountains next time.

Owner's Response: Well, the best news is that you survived your vacation! And we are REALLY happy to hear that you are recovering! It sounds like you may need another vacation soon. And of course, we are also very glad to hear how much you liked your first stay at Hale Kai! The best compliment that we can receive is the knowledge that you had such a great vacation & enjoyed the peace & serenity of a Hale Kai getaway. Please come back soon, & thank you for your kind words!
