ABALONE POINT: OCEANSIDE PANORAMIC VIEW HOME NEAR SHELL BEACH

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. 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.

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

We are sure you will enjoy your stay and love the peacefulness & beauty of The Sea Ranch.

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!

Terrific Sea Ranch Family Home. Abalone point is well equipped and very comfortable. There was lots of space for together time and even some break out space for privacy. It was very easy to work with the owners and everything was as described. Abalone Point is well located along the bluff with easy walking to the beach. The kids loved this home, the hot tub, tennis, pool and especially the beach. Same for the adults. We now have a new family tradition.

EVERYTHING AS PROMISED!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you to Peggy and Tom for a great stay in The Sea Ranch. The home was just as promised - large and comfy, well-supplied great big kitchen, large flat-screen TV, large sectional sofa just begging you to take a quick snooze before dinner. It was chilly, but we never touched the thermostat because the large windows let the sun warm the entire house. The beds were comfortable (thanks for supplying the linens and towels!), the master bath enormous, great bath tub beckoning you to take a Calgon break ... The directions to the property and instructions on access and what and what not to do were spot-on.

The Sea Ranch Lodge is rather expensive -- more than we paid for this beautiful home. AND the lodge doesn't have any TVs in their 19 rooms, so unless you are there to actually do NOTHING, Abalone Point is the place to stay.

We were there for my son's wedding, and while it was the usual Sea Ranch fog most of the time, the sun came out ten minutes before the ceremony, and the weather cooperated for the rest of the weekend. It's rutting season, and the deer and bucks were a spectacular site to see -- we even had a doe on the front lawn Sunday night, and a bushy-tailed fox scampered across our path on several occasions.

General Info: We went to The Black Point Grill for dinner Friday (party of 12), and the food was wonderful. We also at at a Mexican restaurant in Point Arena Sunday ... it was good, but not the great Mexican food you can find in SoCal. Two Fish bakery near The Lodge has to-die-for Morning Buns and other sweet delicacies, so don't miss that. There is no taxi service, so having a car is a must. It is pitch black at night so have a flashlight ready ... and wouldn't recommend walking at night unless there is a full moon and you can see critters. It is chilly at night, and typically quite damp this time of year.

All in all, a spectacular setting, a perfect weekend getaway, close to The Lodge for amazing cuisine, grocery stores a few miles up the road in Gualala (charming town), and a home that was truly Our Home for three days. We hope to be back soon. Thank you for our Abalone Point experience!
