PELICANS' NEST - HEAVEN'S A LITTLE CLOSER IN A HOUSE BY THE SEA

Gualala House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Pelicans' Nest is a beautiful four bedroom, two bath, ranch-style home with a pelican’s eye view of the ocean. It sits on a hill, within walking distance of a beautiful coved beach. The ocean view can be seen from several of the redwood-paneled rooms throughout the home, as well as from the deck that extends across the back of the home. The hot tub that sits on the deck, just off of the master bedroom, seats 4-6 people. Skylights throughout the home bring in the sunlight.

The home easily sleeps eight, but can sleep more with a bit of creativity! The den doubles as a fourth bedroom - has a full-size futon along with an easy chair and 27 inch TV and DVD/VCR unit - it is perfect for the kids. Dogs are welcome, too! A large fenced-in side yard keeps them safe, with plenty of area to explore. The house sits on three-quarter (¾) of an acre, the front, side, and back yards landscaped with a natural feel. There is even a large area for parking.

This home is such a great place to get away from it all! Picture yourself sitting on the deck enjoying the view of the ocean, or later on, a spectacular view of the stars. If you get a bit chilly, light a fire in the stunning stone fireplace in the living room. The fully-equipped kitchen with a large countertop/bar separating it from the dining room makes the area a perfect setting for small parties.

Heaven's a "Lots!!!" closer in a House by the Sea

Heaven's a "Lots!!!" closer in a House by the Sea

We didn't just like it - WE LOVED IT!!!
Just speechless! It has been such a long time that we had this heavenly comfortable feeling during our vacation. Marcie, Patty and Pat...God bless all of you sharing your priceless house. We lost our beloved 14 years old pooch this January, then came here with our new rescued 2 years old pooch to start our new chapter. This trip was a very special for our family. Our happiness truly started from this house. Entering from huge clean driveway, saw 49 Yrs flag (I'm huge fan of 49 Yrs since Montana time, so made me smile to see the flag:), then opened up with gorgeous endless ocean view & vast land holdings waiting..an exactly as Marcie described. Everything you need were there and we couldn't think of anything missing. Enjoyed cooking 5 nights and did take out dinner twice (nearby Thailand & Mexican restaurant foods were an excellent). Walked to the Cooks Beach with our pooch everyday even one rainy day. A wonderful beach and we all loved it! Local people were very friendly and our pooch had a good time playing with other pooches there too. Saw four Deer and two of them came to front yard, then saw even Whale one day at near ocean when we were hiking. Went fishing at next town peer, then saw many pelicans flying by. We have been stayed more than 20 VRBO houses so far, but this Pelican's house gave us the most "Home Sweet Home" feeling and gave us positive spirit and an extra energy. This is the house that you always want to go back again and again....PS:As a dog owner - many thanks for your safe & secure fence area for our pooch. She totally enjoyed your huge green rush garden:) Thank you so much for everything and your most comfortable house. We'll be be back again!

First, the owners Patty and Marcie are fantastic in every way. They were very responsive and provided very detailed information and instructions. The place exceeded our expectations in every way. They have everything you could possibly need from pots and pans, spices, towels, cleaning supplies, paper towels, aluminum foil, etc. We were there for Thanksgiving and did not need to bring any of those items to cook. The place was clean and bright. The house is big and comfortable! The back yard space is fantastic and great for dogs. They were in heavan! There is even a view of the ocean. Also the town has grocery stores and restaurants--great location. We just loved our stay and will be back!

Perfect combination of beautiful location, comfort and convenience!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a place that has spectacular views, convenient access to a secluded sandy beach, all the comforts of home (and more!) then look no further! Pelican’s Nest provides a roomy and comfortable home in a great location – a short 2 minute drive from Gualala and a pleasant quiet “neighborhood” location up the hill from the coast with expansive ocean views.
If you enjoy sunsets and start-filled nights – you can get it here as you relax on your deck sipping a glass of wine or whirling in the hot tub. Just as others have mentioned the views and location alone make this a perfect costal retreat. This was our second trip to Pelican’s Nest and we’re booking our next one now. Even our dog had a great time!
Having stayed at many of the wonderful places we’ve seen on VRBO we can recommend Pelican’s Nest without hesitation (we will be back – again!) The home is well stocked, all the kichen gear you really need (and more!) lot’s or room, several TV’s, satellite, CD player, DVD, even WiFi if you want stay connected. Plus the owners are very friendly and responsive and clearly take pride in their magnificent home. Marcie and Patty are super nice people and we are really glad we stumbled across this place. We had always stayed in the Mendocino area but now that we’ve discovered Pelican’s Nest we don’t want to stay anywhere else. It doesn’t hurt that it’s even closer to SF.
There’s really not much to add to what everyone else has already said so whether you’ve been to Gualala or not, if you want a great location with easy access to town for shopping (2 supermarkets) and a very relaxing, quiet location a short walk to a great beach – you’ve found it!

What a wonderful vacation home! My family and I had the greatest time at Pelicans' Nest! The home was clean, well taken care of and kid friendly. Our boys spent most of the time in the back grassy area playing, running, practicing baseball and exploring. We had two days of beautiful sunny weather and another day of cooler coastal cozy weather. It was perfect. We enjoyed cooking dinners and eating out on the deck while overlooking the ocean, hanging out in the hot tub under the stars, spending the day at the beach, reading on the deck and exploring the little town of Gualala. This is definitely a home we hope to return to in the future. Thank you for sharing your home with us. This was one of the highlights of our summer. Thank you!!

Entire family member loved it

It was well worth the drive of more than 3 hours to celebrate my 50th birthday at Pelican's Nest, even though some got car sick to and fro. My family enjoyed the outdoors and the place itself. The ocean breeze and beatiful scenery was so relaxing for all.

We just got back from a wonderful time at Pelican's Nest. The pictures just don't do it justice, but it's a great place to relax, play games, watch TV, whales, beaches - amazing views! Owners were absolutely wonderful about everything we might have needed, thank you so much for sharing your outstanding coastal retreat with us. Our entire family enjoyed it!
