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!

Outstanding House

  • 5 of 5

The house is gorgeous and very tastefully decorated. Every detail is thought through, from the fully stocked kitchen to comfortable cozy beds to personalized soaps in the bathrooms. It was a working trip so we didn't spend as much time at the house as we would of liked to, but we really enjoyed the hot tub after a long day of work. And thank you so much our gracious hosts for the bottle of wine and the chocolates, so sweet! Hope to come back for vacation soon.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review, and we are glad that you at least had time to enjoy the hot tub & fantastic ocean views from there! But now you'll have to come back to enjoy the many other benefits of a relaxing & peaceful stay at Hale Kai!

Comfortable House, Wonderful Views, Great Location to Trails

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here. The views have to be some of the best at Sea Ranch. Easy to walk to trails from there and we got to see new born seal babies. Hot tub and grill were great too! House is comfortable and welcoming.

Magical location, inviting, well-equipped home

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 night stay was way too short. We loved every minute of staying at this home in TSR. The view is exceptional, the accommodations met and exceeded our expectations. It was bliss!

Magnificent February Days in Sea Ranch

  • 5 of 5

Just a short note to say we absolutely loved Hale Kai. The house was extremely comfortable, clean and so well provisioned. The kitchen had everything one could hope for, and even included a lovely large selection of condiments, herbs and spices. As a result, we were able to cook three elaborate meals - as if we were at home.

The house was in a fabulous position and had some of the best views in Sea Ranch, not to mention drenching amounts of sunlight. We also particularly appreciated the gift certificate and bottle of wine. Not only did we use the coupon at Two Fish Bakery, but went back the next day for more delicious goods.

We really plan to use the house again when we find the time and to recommend it to friends. Thanks for a wonderful 3 nights at Sea Ranch - it was magical.

Valentine's Weekend at Hale Kai

  • 4 of 5

Hale Kai was so clean, spacious, well stocked, updated, and so much more. We had a wonderful time and felt so comfortable being there. The resource binder, wine and garage door opener were awesome. It was so nice to have the ability to bike, play tennis, relax on the deck, and jump in the hot tub. Did we say it was clean!! It was impeccable. The owners are so very easy to work with and make Hale Kai feel like home.

Perfect home; perfect location; the best homeowners to rent from

  • 5 of 5

Hale Kai is truly our home-away-from-home. We have rented this wonderful home 3 years in a row and plan to return next year.

The owners are the absolute, hands down best folks to do business with. The home is beautifully and comfortably furnished, including very comfortable beds. We love to cook and appreciate the well stocked kitchen including quality stainless cookware, a variety of ceramic casserole dishes, large stainless bowls, blender and more.

The views from the kitchen, cafe table, living room and front bedroom are amazing - we never tire of watching the grey whales blow and dive on their migration south. Our favorite sighting was a group of sea lions leaping at the surface of the water, like dolphins, just off the kelp beds below Hale Kai.

Hale Kai is situated in the best part of Sea Ranch. An easy walk to the the bluff trail takes you miles in either direction to explore any number of pocket beaches. Bike out the back door south for an easy ride to Del Mar Recreation Center for a swim, or continue on to the County Park. Bike out the front door and head north for a more vigorous adventure to the Ohlson Recreation Center, or continue on to the Sea Ranch Lodge. We really like that you can bike to so many places without riding on Route 1.

We give Hale Kai 5 stars. It is a perfect home for couples, families or friends traveling together.
