Overview

Sea Ranch House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

A 10 mile stretch of pristine California coastline defines The Sea Ranch. It is a world renowned coastal community with a reputation for award winning architecture and environmentally sound planning. Within the 10 mile limits of The Sea Ranch lie 3 recreation centers with sauna, tennis courts and swimming--all hidden from public view. There is also a very challenging 18 hole golf course. There are also miles and miles of bluff top meadow and redwood trails for hiking and biking. If you cross the road to the east side you will find ancient redwoods and the Gualala river where Jack London used to fish. All the amenities are available to the renter.

The Sea Ranch Lighthouse is a cozy, warm 2 bedroom/2 bath house that can easily sleep four(4),and by using the loft and its twin size trundle bed, it will accommodate six(6).The trundle bed is made up for a single but by pulling out the trundle it will make up to two twins or a double. Both bathrooms have recently been remodeled as well as the kitchen which has all new appliances and is fully equipped to delight the casual or gourmet cook. And when you are done eating, just pop the dishes into the new dishwasher and crank up the blender for some margaritas.

Located on the ocean side of California Hwy 1, the house is an easy five(5) minute walk to the ocean, the children's playground or one of the finest tide-pool areas of the Ranch. You can watch for whales while standing at the large living room window as you get toasty in front of the fireplace or, if you prefer, while you are sitting in the hot tub on the deck. Either way, you will be looking out at a beautiful blue ocean or you could be watching the deer, wild turkeys or rabbits running across the meadow. At night you will see a starry heaven that will take your breath away.

If you rather stay indoors there is a nice window seat that is perfect for that afternoon nap while you listen to music from the DVD player, the I-Pod docking station or the satellite dish. A flat panel HDTV and WI-FI INTERNET rounds out the entertainment options.

The house comes with passes to all the amenities; some interesting reading material about the whaling ships that used to travel from the Northern Coast to San Francisco and a variety of books on the flora and fauna of the Pacific Coast and binoculars.

THE LIGHTHOUSE IS IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE SONOMA COUNTY TRANSIENT OCCUPANCY TAX LAW AND HAS CERTIFICATE #660N.

Sea Ranch Lighthouse

  • 5 of 5

For the last several years we have rented a home at Sea Ranch for one month. This is the first home that was well maintained inside and out. Very clean, owners provided all you would need to cook, dine, etc. just like your own home. Beautiful views.....and short drive to Gualala to shop or dine if you prefer.

Thank you, Gordon and Judy

Relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect getaway for my daughter (35yr), granddaughter (15yr) and myself! I picked the Sea Ranch Lighthouse for my daughter's birthday weekend from reading the other reviews and we could not of been happier... It was perfect! The house has everything you would ever need.. The hot tub was so relaxing and sitting out on the deck whether it was the morning, afternoon or evening all you heard were the birds and the ocean!!! There were so many deer, rabbits in the fields..it was cool! The house is so comfortable and so clean...it felt like home away from home! We will definitely stay again!!! Thank you Gordon and Judy for making your rental feel so homey and comfortable!!

A Wonderful Memorial Day Weekend.

  • 5 of 5

Our family celebrated an important day on Memorial Day. The Lighthouse was a great place for a family gathering and for a quality time. We loved all the amenities and we were blessed by having the local sheep herd by the house for a day. The Hot Tub was a highlight for the boys! The Seal Beach was another one. We took walks and enjoyed the pool. What a great home!

Great R&R

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Lighthouse in Sea Ranch. We have been taking a spring break in Sea Ranch for almost 30 years. The Lighthouse property was comfortable and cozy. It is a huge plus to be able to take our dogs along with us now that our children have all grown up. This home was well equipped to make our stay a great one. The floor plan uses space well and makes this home very comfortable while taking advantage of its surrounding scenic beauty. The lush green meadow behind the home had deer grazing each evening and morning. The distant ocean view was both beautiful and relaxing. The dining table gave my wife a central place to relax and complete a challenging puzzle while the hot tub and bbq on the deck gave me a place to enjoy a cocktail and find some relaxation on my own. We will definitely consider returning to this home in the future.

Great meadow house, sunny living area.

  • 5 of 5

Very well-equipped, clean, comfortable, family-friendly house. Good supply of games. Owners very responsive and friendly. Short walk to interesting beaches (seals), even for infants. Wild life roam the meadows. Our third stay here, and hopefully not last.

We always like to check out Bowling Ball beach (close to Point Arena) and great walks/runs in every direction.

A great place for the price!

  • 5 of 5

A well thought-out layout makes this small house feel bigger than it is. It was more than enough space for our family of 2 adults and 1 child. The 2 bedrooms are on opposite ends of the open living room/dining area/kitchen and each bedroom has it's own attached bathroom, so there would be lots of privacy and space for larger groups, plus the little loft would be a fun sleeping area for kids. It's a great location for families with kids since a playground is a quick walk from the house, and beach access just beyond the playground. It had everything we needed for a short or longer stay....washer/dryer, hot tub, nice heating, fireplace, and a stash of games which was very handy during the rainy weekend we stayed here. I also appreciate that bed sheets and bath towels are included in the rental since many other places at Sea Ranch that we looked at require guests to bring their own. Big thanks to Gordon and Judy for sharing their place with us! I appreciate Gordon's very prompt reply to questions that we had (eg how to locate and reset the Internet router) and for his spot-on dinner recommendations (Bones Roadhouse in Gualala!). We would love to visit again.
