About Mike Murphy

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

Why Mike Murphy chose Sea Ranch

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!

What makes this house unique

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!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
We've rented many houses and are quite aware of those attentions to detail that separate the outstanding from the just ok rentals. This house was one you'd consider renting time and time again.

The view, the view, the view!

First and foremost-the view! This house has a breathtaking view from the expanse of windows in the living room, kitchen, second bedroom and TV room. Quite mesmerizing, even for Sea Ranch! The master bedroom has a different, but equally lovely view of the cypress hedgerow; it was such a private, peaceful view to wake up to!
We have rented many homes at Sea Ranch, but few are as tastefully decorated. Absolutely lovely, and we loved every detail. There were also a number of personal touches (wine, Twofish Bakery gift certificate, custom soaps and toiletries) that made the house even more special. Did I mention the plush towels?
The forest space behind the house was great to exercise our pups, and the outdoor shower was great for washing sandy dog (and human) paws!
Communication with Mike was great; we plan to rent the house again, and recommend it to others without reservation.

Everything I had hoped for and MORE!

  • 5 of 5
I had found Hale Kai by word of mouth from a friend who had stayed last year. I was looking for something pet friends so that my friends and I could bring our 2 small dogs. I was pleasantly surprised with the cost of renting such a beautiful and updated home in such a lovely location. As I soon found once we got there, not all of the homes in the area have secure patio's which would be conducive to pets. Everything about Hale Kai was beyond my expectations, from such a fully stocked kitchen (all appliances, pots, pans, utensils, BEAUTIFUL dishes and glassware, bar accessories, etc) to the wonderful bed linens, down comforters, plush towels, and top notch toiletries. Often, in vacation rental situations owners cut costs on these items, but not Mike! It was cozy, decorated beautifully, and clean!!

They also provided a "user manual" that included everything you need to know about the home, surrounding area, tips, trail maps, directions to various beaches, etc. There is a port in the stereo for your phone or ipod to enjoy music with a lovely speaker system.

We easily found the beach which was in walking distance from the house (about 10-15 minutes - flat terrain). We enjoyed taking the dogs for their first dip in the big blue ocean!

Mike was wonderful to deal with, very responsive, and answered all my questions prior to our arrival. There was even a hand written thank you note, a bottle of wine, and some chocolates waiting for us! (And a handy Hale Kai cinch bag for us)!. I couldn't recommend this more. I will definitely go back and this time for a longer duration! GORGEOUS GORGEOUS GORGEOUS! Oh, did I mention the spacious garage and washer and dryer on site? I did now. :)

The only thing I would change is perhaps having small televisions in the bedrooms? There is one TV downstairs in the rec room, which we didn't use, but I do like to fall asleep to the television, but I suppose it defeats the purpose of being near to the ocean to have technology drowning out the sound of the waves!

Please consider staying at Hale Kai. It was marvelous and I am so happy I took my friends recommendation!

Serene, relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5
Hale Kai is a beautiful, well equipped vacation home tastefully decorated and kept spotlessly clean and well maintained. The beds and furniture were comfortable. The owner is responsive and wonderful to deal with. What more could one ask for?

Thoughtful touches abound at this home: light switches are marked, rooms have night lights that come on automatically so you don't stub your toe stumbling around in the dark in a strange home if you have to get up in the night, and a large book of area information is provided for your use....as well as a bottle of nice wine, chocolates and a gift certificate to the famous local Two Fish bakery.

Access to Sea Ranch's spectacular Bluff Top Trail is just down the street. We enjoyed our daily walks, then relaxing on the home's sunny deck and/or hot tub, watching for the almost daily visits by deer and wild turkeys to the yard.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for all of your kind comments! And in particular, than you for your comments about how clean our home is. We have equally high standards for cleanliness for ourselves & our guests, & our cleaning crew works very hard to ensure that each guest has a feeling that they are the first & last guest to stay at Hale Kai! We will definitely let our cleaners know that their efforts are appreciated!

And of course, we are excited to hear that you explored the bluff trail, just across the street & extending for 10 miles north & south along the coast. The beautiful scenery from there is one of the best things about a visit to The Sea Ranch! We still love everything about it after many years.

We hope that you'll be back soon to enjoy Hale Kai again, & we thank you again for your patronage.
