Overview

About the property

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.

So cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at Gordon and Judy's Lighthouse! Weather was perfect in the low 70s, overcast but not chilly. Even with all the windows in the house, the evening temperature was very cozy and heaters were not turned on. The house was well-stocked with pretty much anything we needed. Didn't have any encounters with neighborhood wildlife let alone the infamous racoon...The highlight for the kids was seeing turkey vultures on the street voraciously feeding on a roadkill skunk! I think the only thing I would've liked to see improved on is removing the amount of spiders and webs behind the beds, dressers, furniture, chairs, closets, etc...I understand the environment but there was quite a lot that we encountered pulling a blanket out of the closet, or using the ironing board/iron, plugging cellphone into an outlet and hand is covered in webs...Would love to come back though! Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home!

Wish I could give 10 stars!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying on the Sea Ranch for 36 years and the Lighthouse is now our absolute favorite! Comfortable, cozy and charming- great kitchen, wonderful light, super fireplace, very comfy beds and perfect location! The owners have thought of everything to make the place feel like home. We will be back!

Owner's Response: We so appreciate this comment. We don't often reply to a comment because we don't want to imply we solicit them. Your comment however, hit the mark with what we want the Lighthouse to be: comfortable, charming, cozy and a great place to enjoy the setting of the Ranch. We are tickled that you find it your "absolute favorite" and look forward to your future stays. Gordon & Judy

Very convenient location and comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

We found the location convenient to the pool and shopping in Gualala. The house was comfortable and easily accessible for my husband who has MS and walks with a walker. Other houses are not as accessible as the ground is lumpy and hard to walk on with a walker.

We would rent this unit again. Homeowners were easy to reach with any questions we had. House and furnishings were in good repair and decor was perfect for the beach!
