Sea Ranch House Rental Photos and Description

Main house: 2 Bed/2 Bath. 'Casita': 1 Bed/1 Bath

Tastefully decorated home with Sea Ranch/Pottery Barn look and a high-end kitchen. Four decks to enjoy ocean and garden views. Easy walk to Shell Beach and privately located at the end of the cul-de-sac. Located on .5 acre with empty .5 acre lots on either side. Ideal for three couples or a family. Our rates include casita. See notes on rate page for rates for main house only if casita not needed. Three gas hearths, large HD television with DVR, hot tub, free wireless internet service included. Main House: 1 King, 1 Queen, 1 Double Sofabed. Casita: 1 Queen. ( Please note that we do not rent the 'Casita' alone.)

There is an openness to this home not only inside with its many windows but outside too. Unique to our house is the large open mowed space surrounding the house which has allowed for many a whiffle ball game, soccer, bocce, frisbee or kite flying. Bring your bicycles to enjoy either mountain biking on the trails or biking Leeward Road for a 8 mile roundtrip from our house on a road with little elevation change.

We designed the detached 'Casita' for a unique suite with its own deck, gas fireplace, flat screen t.v., DVD & spectacular views. Family & guests cannot decide which master suite they like best at the house. Our decks give you lots of options for sun or shade & protection from wind. The solar effect on the vast front windows keep the house toasty warm on cold days.

'Abalone Point' has been under property management for 4 years but we now have the time to manage the property ourselves and offer amenities not possible before. Our home will now have linens provided with the beds made so that you can enjoy your visit from the moment you walk in the door. You will find kitchen & bath towels too. Through our years of renting, we discovered many homes lacked kitchen amenities. We enjoy cooking & decided to outfit the kitchen with good kitchen dishes, sharp knives, pots and pans, lots of spices and seasonings for the gourmet chef. Views from the kitchen windows will make you want to cook. The couch and window seat will draw you for a nap, reading a book, or watching the wildlife. Deer love to graze around the house and often take their afternoon naps under the shade of a tree down from the house. Don't be surprised to see hawks, turkeys, or a fox walk by. You can take a walk or bike ride to Shell or Tidepool Beach. The seals are always there, taking their naps or watching you as you explore the beach. Another favorite spot in the house is the game table with views as you do a jigsaw puzzle or play one of the many games provided.

One-Eyed Jack playground is a short distance away and our grandchildren love exploring the cypress hedgerow next to the playground.We are sure you will enjoy your stay and love the peacefulness & beauty of The Sea Ranch.

About Peggy and Tom Phister

Our family camped on the North Coast for nearly 30 years with a love of the ocean, abalone diving and good times camping with family and friends. We learned of The Sea Ranch and began to rent homes after our camping area was closed. We soon discovered the wonderful amenities and luxuries that Sea Ranch offered.

We decided to name our house 'Abalone Point' since we loved abalone diving and we met 44 years ago on Catalina Island and loved swimming at Abalone Point on Catalina Island. We are now retired and can spend the time to maintain and keep our Sea Ranch home up to our standards.

Peggy and Tom Phister purchased this house in 2008

Why Peggy and Tom Phister chose Sea Ranch

'Abalone Point' has been under property management for 4 years but we now have the time to manage the property ourselves and offer amenities not possible before. Our home will now have linens provided with the beds made so that you can enjoy your visit from the moment you walk in the door. You will find kitchen & bath towels too. Through our years of renting, we discovered many homes lacked kitchen amenities. We enjoy cooking & decided to outfit the kitchen with good kitchen dishes, knives, pots and pans, lots of spices and seasonings for the gourmet chef. Please let us know if we are missing some! Views from the kitchen windows will make you want to cook. The couch and window seat will draw you for a nap, reading a book, or watching the wildlife. Deer love to graze around the house and often take their afternoon naps under the shade of a tree down from the house. Don't be surprised to see hawks, turkeys, or a fox walk by. You can take a walk or bike ride to Shell or Tidepool Beach. Our grandchildren love collecting shells and other treasures at these amazing spots (especially at low tide). The seals are always there, taking their naps or watching you as you explore the beach. Another favorite spot in the house is the game table with views as you do a jigsaw puzzle or play one of the many games provided.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the openness of this home not only inside but outside. Unique to our house is the large open mowed space surrounding the house which has allowed for many a whiffle ball game, soccer, bocce, frisbee or kite flying. Bring your bicycles to enjoy either mountain biking on the trails or biking Leeward Road for a 8 mile roundtrip from our house on a road with little elevation change.

We designed the detached 'Casita' for a unique suite with its own deck, gas fireplace, flat screen t.v., DVD & spectacular views. Family & guests cannot decide which master suite they like best at the house. You will see from our photo album at the house that we have done much of the work ourselves from installing slate floors, painting, to unique artistic light fixtures. Our decks give you lots of options for sun or shade & protection from wind. The solar effect on the vast front windows keep the house toasty warm on cold days. We are sure you will enjoy your stay and love the peacefulness & beauty of The Sea Ranch.

A wonderful stay for the 6 pack

  • 5 of 5
For my 73rd birthday the 6 of us stayed here for 3 nights. Thank you for sharing Abalone Point with us. It had so much light and space and had such a nice flow. The kitchen had so many work spaces and had more than enough equipment, including really sharp knives. We all love to cook and eat in. On one of the tables there was a picture book of them remodeling the place after they bought it 2008. I loved seeing that because it reminded me of our pictures when my husband and I built our house about 40 years ago. The overcast weather made it perfect for all our coastal walks. There are so many places to explore and the location made it easily accessible to the beach and sand. While we were there my 14 year old grandson was able to find a perfect table for his puzzle and conquer their marble maze . My 19 year old granddaughter loved taking pictures of the nature all around us. The place smelled really fresh and clean with no dryer sheet smell. Usually beach water tastes bad, but we didn't find that here. Enough said, you won't be disappointed if you choose this spot to stay.

Great place for a large family

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed at many other Sea Ranch vacation rentals through the years and Abalone Point rates high among them. The home is tastefully decorated and the kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans, dishes, and utensils. We felt as though we were staying at a friend's home rather than a rental. The house is conveniently located almost equidistant from each of the major recreation pools, and Shell Beach is a 15 minute walk through the meadow. There are wonderful views of the ocean from almost all rooms in the house. The owners were responsive to emails and easy to work with.

Home Away From Home

  • 4 of 5
Loved the location 3 couples shared this very accommodating home, owners easy to communicate with. Rented 3 other homes on the same street for our group of 21. Peggy gave me some other referrals so our group could be together which was very helpful. Out door setting & barbeque area made for great group entertaining as well. We stayed in the Casita nicely equipped but would have appreciated a small refrigerator.

Wonderful house/as advertised

  • 5 of 5
This home was perfect for our multi family reunion. We chose it due to another review that the master closet was large enough for a crib: it was large enough for a 2-toddler sleepover! It's truly like another bedroom. We rented this home plus the casitas and a separate rental home next door (through another rental company) for our 4-family gathering. This rental became our central gathering point due to the large open family room with plenty of seating, the huge lawn out front (with easy supervision from all the windows), zero traffic as its on the end of the street, and the well supplied kitchen including gas BBQ on the deck. The beach at the other end of the street/hiking trails is PERFECT for sandy digging/lounging, simple tide pooling, and watching the Harbor Seals. Also an easy walk to the playground. A great location for "central" sea ranch access. We recommend bringing a stroller for younger kids (plus all the sand toys/towels,) but the 4year olds had no problem with the walk to the beach or park. Oh and the master bath tub was perfect for multiple-at-once toddler bath time. Had we not been with young families, I can see this being a perfect rental for a multi couple getaway or a romantic retreat--fireplace in the master bedroom was tempting and the cositas was adorably quaint. The owners were extremely easy to work with. Highly recommend this rental!

such a getaway

  • 5 of 5
We returned to Abalone Point after having stayed the previous year. The house is lovely, comfy, cozy yet open and light, and so well equipped (especially the kitchen!). The layout of the place is nice for hanging out with family and friends after a day out walking, playing tennis, watching seals....thank you!
