About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

A beautiful, private 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.

Relax in the artistic beauty of this three bedroom, four bath home with gourmet kitchen, whitewater views from almost every room and enjoy our HDTV entertainment room with ocean views.

Enjoy breakfast on the 460 sq/ft deck next to the gourmet kitchen with all around ocean views. A three minute walk from the house gets you to beautiful Cooks Beach. Walking distance to St. Orres fabulous restaurant and only two miles from the town of Gualala.

Local activities include coastal sightseeing, shopping, ocean and river kayaking, horseback riding, local wineries, art galleries, hiking, and many other activities. Enjoy whitewater views from your private decks and almost every room. Come and enjoy this truly remarkable, luxurious place on the Mendocino coast!

Gualala was named one of the best 50 places to live in the United States. It is a perfect vacation destination to explore the beautiful Northern California coastline. Mendocino County is perfect for those looking to relax and enjoy nature in the mild temperate climate of the Banana Belt region. More sunny days than most of the Mendocino and Sonoma coastlines.

Exemplary quality and visual interest enhance the beauty of the enduring land and sea beyond.

Hand-selected artisan tile, richly colored fabrics and furnishings, and original artwork visually enhance a unique aesthetic standard. While the home is named 'Seascape' there is much to be appreciated within the walls, as well.

Privately placed on the ocean side of a coastal knoll. The artistic house design, special appointments create a spa like ambiance. One must spend time here to fully appreciate the beauty of this home, and the unique surroundings.


'The six people in our group all agree this was the nicest home we've ever stayed in. Scenery was breathtaking, decor was beautiful...relaxing comfortable. It's sad to leave but we hope to be back again. On a scale from 0 to 10(great), this is an 11.'

Again, thank you for the use of your beautiful home.'

Amazing house in a perfect location ! "Try it, you'll like it"

  • 5 of 5

Six adults all agree that this is an amazing house. location is perfect. the house itself is perfect inside and out. Didn't want to leave the house during the day but had to "hit the beach"! Perfect beach only about a 3 minute walk from house. I do want to thank the owners for sharing their house and for the wonderful memories that we'll cherish forever. The views from inside the house, from the main deck, and from the master bedroom deck are fantastic. The house is decorated with "Class" and is so comfortable. As we gathered for our morning coffee we all agreed that the beds were sooooooo comfortable. Everything inside and outside was very clean, Thank you so much !

The only complaint we had was the torn speakers in the living room. Plenty of good music but couldn't enjoy it. (Recommend replacing them ASAP).

Once again, "Thank You". We had a wonderful time in a wonderful house. We highly recommend this house.

What An Awesome Experience!

  • 5 of 5

I found this gem of an estate and felt like we won the lottery when we walked in. I literally had little happy tears as I took in the ocean smell and the breathtaking view of the ocean from the house. It is a very large house, two levels and it is decorated so beautifully. The peace and serenity awakened my spirits and I could not stop smiling the whole weekend. I took my husband there for his 60th birthday because he works so hard and never, ever relaxes. All week and even up till now, my husband thanks me for the trip. We loved the people, the scenery, the peaceful quiet, and oh, the wild animals we saw were just awesome.

We drove up to the Pt. Arena light house and made a few stops on the way to just take in the beautiful ocean. As animal lovers, we were so happy to see hawks, ravens, and we saw so many seals! For dinner, we went into Gualala, which is really a short distance and had a nice dinner overlooking the sea. We also star gazed at night and finally lost count of all the falling stars we saw. Each morning, we were even greeted by local deer as we drank our coffee on the huge deck!

I almost don't want to tell anyone about this spectacular place because I want to keep it as hidden as possible. However, I do feel the need to thank the property owners for allowing us to stay in their home. The home had every single thing we needed except food that was purchased from the local store, which had everything we could ever need by the way. I have traveled all over and I must say, this was the best place I have ever stayed. If you seek peace, tranquility and unmatched ocean beauty, this town is the place to be. Before I forget, the master bathroom tub was in a world of its own! You are able to gaze at the peaceful ocean, hear the waves crash as you bath in a huge Jacuzzi tub! When I show people pictures of the property, they are in awe!

We are going in April but choosing another property from the same owner just to be a little closer to the ocean. Don't get me wrong, you are literally a short walk from Cook's Beach at this one and you can see the ocean from almost every room in the house! When we left, I immediately felt sad to be going home to Los Angeles which is filled with traffic!!!! We plan to vacation there at least twice a year!

Amazing Views, Executive Quality Home, Excellent Condition, Wonderfully Appointed & Great Owners Too

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 6 adults spent an amazing Memorial Day weekend at this home and it was truly one of the best vacations rentals we have ever stayed at (and we have stayed at over 35 in California and over 90 worldwide). The views were outstanding and the location was perfect (many homes exaggerate their views in photos but I will agree that the views at this home are even better than the photos - very rare!) The master bedroom and bath were truly exquisite and the 2nd master was also nicely appointed (note the bathroom for the 3rd bedroom is not en-suite, but just one door down and easily accessible to the 3rd bedroom). The outdoor deck and grill were sizeable, sunny and offered more terrific views (I believe the grill was replaced after another guest's comment) and offered a great space to sunbathe and socialize. There is a huge dining room table with spectacular views that is perfect all year round, plus a large downstairs entertainment area with fully equipped laundry room and attached 4th bath (very convenient when watching TV or playing games downstairs). Very close by to restaurants and ample grocery shopping, plus local beaches. Truly wonderful owners and a very stress free experience - We will definitely be back. Please note that there is a fairly steep driveway and several sets of stairs - just something to keep in mind for access purposes!

Not a Five-Star Accommodation

  • 4 of 5

Our 4-night stay in mid November involved 5 adults. Prior reviewers have noted the fine views, spacious dining and sitting areas, excellent master suite, etc. But this rental has some negative aspects: the second upstairs bedroom/bathroom is not en-suite, the down bedroom is rather small with a bathroom door that would not close, a shower head that leaked and a poorly-sliding screen door. This bedroom has a gas heater that was not operative during our stay (although needed). There was only one operative hair dryer in the house. Carpet and area rugs in the house are well-used and not clean. Kitchen utensils and glasses are sparse and all glasses required washing prior to use. Although of no impact to renters, the home exterior is somewhat shabby--paint is peeling and exterior shingles missing. These negatives detract from the lovely setting and views available from the house.

My wife and two other couples spent the memorial weekend at this breath taking place. The best place we have ever stayed. The view is unbelivable. The furniture is state of the art and the kitchen is fully equiped. Very easy acces from hwy 1. I can't wait for the time that we all can go back there. The only drawback that I can think of is that his place can use a better (bigger) gas grill.

Owner's Response: Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We have replaced the grill with a bigger and better BBQ for all our valued renters. Come on back and give it a try!!

More incredible than the pictures. This place is absolutely breathtaking and was the perfect place to relax and truly breath. Very close walk to a pristine beach, short drive to the town of Gualala, and right across the street from delicious food at St. Orres restaurant. I only wish we could have stayed longer but will surely return. The owner/management was extremely helpful and organized. Completely hassle free and everything we needed was at the home. You will not regret staying here.

Gualala was named one of the best 50 places to live in the US. It is a perfect vacation destination to explore the beautiful Northern California coastline. Mendocino County is a great escape from the hectic pace of the big city. There is very little traffic and a breath-taking mix of blue ocean and green mountainsides. One of the highlights of Mendocino County is its quaint boutique wineries. What sets us apart from other vacation homes is our fantastic, private location, overlooking Cooks Beach and the Southern and Northern coastlines. There are unobstructed ocean views from 15 windows. Constantly changing scenery from morning sunrise to evening sunset. The kitchen is ideally located on the southern side of the home with a large 460 sq/ft deck to give plenty of outdoor dining space. We also have three more decks to enjoy the wonderful views. Gualala features a post office, supermarkets, organic foods, farmers markets, restaurants, art galleries, gas stations, Gualala Art Center
