A beautiful, private 2.5 acre estate on the highly scenic northern California coastline. The perfect get-away for special occasions, only two and a half hours from San Francisco. This property features breathtaking, unobstructed and panoramic 180 degree whitewater ocean views, overlooking the Pacific Ocean in luxury. You can hear the waves crashing and are at eye level with seagulls, ospreys, and hawks. You can see sea lions heading to Fish Rock island as well as dolphins and whales. During the spring migration, whales will pass by and you can see them from our home. This area is also known as the BANANA BELT, a temperate and more fog-free climate than other coastal areas. This is a romantic estate, ideal for a honeymoon, anniversary, or that needed vacation. West of Hwy.1 and highly scenic.

Extremely private estate on 2.5 acres of Pacific Ocean blufftop frontage!
The absolutely the most fantastic vacation ever. It was perfect from beginning to end! So very hard to leave. We were blessed to live in the Bay Area for many years, and staying here has been a dream. Great weather to top it off. We WILL be back. Barbara, you were a gem to work with. Thank you.
This review is long overdue. We've stayed at the Beach House 3 times and each visit has been heaven. Lovely home, beautifully decorated, quiet, private, and those amazing views! You can literally sit on the deck for hours and not get bored. So relaxing. The house has everything you need, close to town, but not too close, so you can run in for groceries or a meal if you need to. But you really never want to leave. It feels like our second home whenever we walk through the door. And Barbara is so great to work with - will leave you alone to enjoy the home, but quick to respond if there are any questions or concerns - friendly and courteous. We'll definitely be back!
Stayed at this beautiful house over a year ago. When you first walk in, you will see the most amazing view in the house. It is truly unreal! Wait until you see the sunset! The views from the master bedroom is unbelievable as well. We felt like we were on a different part of the world. The house is well equipped and nicely decorated. We used the hot tub for the 3 nights we stayed here. I do suggest installing some blinds for the front windows because we did saw a red car parked uphill peeking into the house. Which I did not like!! Only a 5 min drive to the nearest grocery store. This was a great vacation! Thanks to the owner for their beautiful home! I really want to come back!!
When I read the reviews here, they were all spectacular and I decided not to pay attention to the one that talked about management problems. It was a big mistake, especially seeing poor response to the complaint below the review. I have never written a negative review and always thought that people writing it just like complaining.
The internet did not work upon our arrival, which was fine as things break sometimes, so we called Barbara several times asking for help. She didn't call back until the night before we left, which is unacceptable. Even then, we tried to be understanding as it was her weekend too. However, we found several notes in the house from previous travelers saying they had troubles with phone and internet and none of those concerns were addressed. We've decided we needed to warn future renters so they can avoid the unpleasant experience we had. The house is beautiful and views are amazing, but it was not worth the trouble and stress we had to deal with. I e-mailed her upon our return with my complaint and the response was that... we left the house in a bad shape because we didn't clean up. Isn't that what the cleaning fee is for? I was shocked as we did everything she asked for (took the trash out, dishes etc.) so her response made me want to warn others before they consider renting this place. It's very unfortunate as the place is really beautiful but just not worth dealing with such poor treatment. We just wanted some apology and reassurance that she will fix the internet problem. I wonder how she is going to respond to my review - perhaps in the same way she did before - that we were very demanding renters given our only 3 day stay? I guess you will be fine if you rent it for more than 2-3 days but if you stay less than that - you may not be considered important enough to be treated with respect? Really disappointing.
This was our first time booking a vacation home through vrbo.com . This house exceeded our expectations. From the booking procedure to directions and the condition of the Beach house it could not have gone any smoother. Barb was very accommodating and a pleasure to work with. The house was everything we'd hoped for and more. The location allowed us to do as much or little as we wished. We drove North and enjoyed the redwoods. wineries and the beautiful costal drive. Gualala only 2 miles down the road had all the necessities. We had wifi and a land line at the house but don't expect cell service in the area which forces you to put away the iphone and ENJOY!!
Our family of 4 stayed at this beautiful Beach House. We were very impressed with everything from communication with the owner to the home itself. The pictures do reflect the beauty of the home but definitely not the warmth of the home that you'll feel when you walk in. We LOVED the decking that overlooked the ocean. We had 2 days of rainy weather but it forced us to just chill and relax and play games in the home. The rest of the time was sunny. I had to work each night while there and connect via a Citrix connection and had zero issues with connectivity. The TV Satellite was spotty at times and would cut in & out but no big deal - we weren't on vacation to watch tv :-)
Thank you Barbara for sharing this beautiful home. We loved it and hope to return. Hwy 1 is a little crazy but an amazing drive to an amazing location!!!
We have stayed in several homes along the coast and find the experience wonderful.
Staying in this home just raised the bar for us.. The house exceeds the expectations set by the descriptions.. This has been, by far, the nicest house we have stayed at. Exceptionally clean, well appointed, and thoughtfully decorated… We are definitely coming back to this wonderful home soon… Barbara , the manager, is excellent and very responsive. Thank you…
