Privacy - We are on the end of a quiet cul-de-sac at the most northern end of Sea Ranch on almost an acre of land, surrounded by golf course, commons and State Park.
Ocean Views - From almost every corner of the house, the beauty and serenity that is Sea Ranch fills your eyes and spirit. We placed our furniture and designed our cottage to take full advantage of the view that we are so lucky to have. We have unimpeded sweeping blue water views of the ocean as we are on a bit of a knoll across from the golf course. In the evening, as sunset colors everything and the ocean turns grey then blue then some shade without a name, the blackbirds will often ?dance? over the empty fields in front of us. It is quite a sight.
Comfort (sleeping & napping) - We have done quite a bit of renting ourselves and for us the beds have to be inviting and revitalized frequently. We provide high quality sheets on high quality mattress on all four beds.
Our down filled couch is renowned for slipping on to for a lovely nap in the late afternoon. While the 4th bed is in a 'loft' our loft has a very private area for the bed. We get comments from renters who have kids that the kids love it as it gives them a sense of privacy yet they aren't to far away from the family.
Cooking & Dining - We love to cook & eat. Our kitchen is fully stocked, knives sharpened and a gas stove at the ready for wonderful meals eaten at our well loved 'old wood' table. We've had dinners of 12 at that table over the years, enjoying the food and company and incredible views. There are 2 really good groceries stores in Gualala and a wonderful health food store in Anchor Bay, about 15 minutes away. Several good restaurants and 2 killer bakeries within a 10 minute drive.
Weather - Sea Ranch is in the 'banana belt' of the coast. It can be sunny there when it is foggy in other areas.
When the fog does come in and we want the sun, it is a short ride to a hike along the ridge or sunny day splashing at the 'hot spot' on the Gualala River.
Activities - There are maps to all the different areas at the house
Walking - you can't beat the bluff trail for beautiful views. You can walk for miles along the well marked trails.
Beach - we've got a beach for everyone, some with thundering waves, some for wading.
River - the Gualala is minutes away - kayaking, swimming, fishing.
Biking - the roads are quiet & well maintained on The Sea Ranch - our young grandchildren find it a great place to bike, especially the meadow land on the westside. The seasoned cyclists among us find enough challenge on the hills to the east to satisfy their biking spirit.
Swimming pools - two heated pools within easy driving distance. One of them is a short 10 minute cycle away.
Reading - we have a full library.
Whale & animal watching - the deer are so entertaining, small herds cross our land frequently. Sometimes we see little foxes as well. Because of our sweeping view of the ocean, we are able to see the whales breach and spout during their migration in spring and fall.
Star gazing - There are nights that literally blow your mind with the magnificence of the night sky.
