Extraordinary

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time to this property, and we know we'll keep coming back. Great communication by owner, the home is architecturally stunning, and in immaculate condition. The home's location next to the coast/7 mile bluff coastal trail makes for great family walks/talks as we marvel over the incredible views together. My 13 y/o daughter asked if we can always go on vacation at places like this (removed, and in gorgeous nature environment). Wow. Thx Diane for helping to create such wonderful memories for our family!

Beautiful home, wonderful views, great layout!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this lovely home! It was our first time to Sea Ranch, and I think we picked a great place to stay. Loved the views of the ocean from the kitchen, bedroom and crow's nest. Amazing kitchen to cook in (we ate in every night). Really comfy bed! Loved the jacuzzi tub in the bathroom too! Really close access to the walking trail--one day we went north for almost two hours, the other day south. Such incredible beauty! We saw sea lions, egrets, turkey vultures, an osprey, and even a few whale spouts. Also appreciated access to the rec centers--used the saunas there two different days and practically had the pool/place to ourselves. This house was a very special place to stay and I'm glad we came here.

Small note: it was just the two of us. This house is perfect for a couple or a family with younger kids who you wouldn't mind sharing a loft area with shared bathroom (i.e. not a lot of privacy so wouldn't recommend for two couples or folks who don't know each other *very* well!)

Remarkable Coastal Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had been looking for a break from our hectic schedule and Sea Ranch was where we decided to land. A quick email to multiple properties and Diane’s response was the by far the warmest even though some of our questions had been staring back at us in the property description.

Our mornings started with a freshly brewed coffee then a light jog north along the bluff trail towards Gualala; we took in the ocean air, marveled at that gorgeous coast line, a quick hello to the seals sunning themselves on the rocks and then it was back to the house for our home-made breakfast.

We relaxed, took in the backdrop of sea ranch where the properties disappeared into the landscape. Our visit was only 5 days, but we managed to walk Glass beach in Fort Bragg, Horseback riding in Manchester, a few drives north and south along the coast and into the woods, checked out the shops and sites of the towns along the way. Gualala, only a couple of miles north has a well-stocked grocery story and everything you will need for your stay.

The property is everything you see in the pictures, described in the ad and written in the multiple reviews. An open concept house with great sight lines, A well laid out kitchen with professional grade appliances, comfortable furniture, a romantic fireplace, all tied together with an eclectic selection of art work, wall hangings and books that would keep any reader occupied for days. We arrived on the coast needing to refuel our tanks and left with them over flowing.

If you are looking for a spot in sea ranch you will not regret this choice. Thanks Diane for sharing your house.

Casual Luxury in this Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in many homes over the years, many very lovely - but this home is very, very special. From the architecture, to the stunning exposed wood, to the furnishings, colors and textures.

It all goes together perfectly and is also the perfect size and style for for a couple seeking to experience the beauty of Sea Ranch. It feels roomy and somehow grand while still cozy and warm.

As other reviews have said, the kitchen is well-equipped and a pleasure to cook in. (I love to cook and enjoyed cooking up meals while looking out at the landscape.). The linens are luxurious. All the details are tended to with an eye for creating a peaceful, luxurious home. It's magnificent really.

Thank you so much. I’m sure we will be back!
