Very Relaxing and Accommodating, Clean and Quiet?

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with best friends last Fall. Loved how inviting it was upon arrival. Our friends were coming in later that night so I started cooking right away. No salt so neighbor across the road was more than happy to donate :-)) Even brought my own pancake griddle to find she had the exact same one already. Hubby liked the mini-bar and sitting on the upper deck, doing Sudoku. We had three young girls with us and loved how the hot tub was already so warm. Nice shower in master bedroom and other than light going on and off in dry sauna, it was fabulous. I love to cook so gourmet meals there are easily done. We hope to stay again this Fall. BBQ restaurant in town is very yummy and liked the little Farmer's Market on weekend. Our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel loved it too! The two young girls thought the captain statue in entry way was watching them the whole time, too funny.

Excellent, relaxing stay at the Rosebud :)

  • 5 of 5

'Rosebud' proved to be all that is was advertised. Great spot to relax and enjoy the California north coast. And our labrador enjoyed the stay very much as well.

So much to do and see (hike, bike, beach, kayak, fish). Or alternatively, just chill at the home, hot-tub, sauna.

Clean, well-maintained, fully functional. Kathy (owner) went out of her way to make this booking happen, at last minute notice (Thanks, Kathy!)

We loved the Sea Ranch area, and are looking forward to many return trips.

Newly retired!

Kitchen cries out for repairs to exhaust fan/ light above range. Wi-fi & TV have weak signals.

Everything else was a hit!

R U interested in selling next spring or summer?

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Glad you enjoyed your stay. We already have a new exhaust fan and light on order. Probably not selling the house this year but always open for the right offer.

Great Sea Ranch Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at this wonderful Sea Ranch home several times. The view is beautiful and the house itself is charming and so comfortable. The kitchen is very well-equipped, with all the gadgets and pans a cook could want. We intend to stay at this home many more times in the future.

Lots of space, lots of amenities, lots to do, beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I rented this space for a long scrapbookers weekend. It slept 7 of us easily as it also has a sofa sleeper not mentioned. Lots of space, very comfortable, beautiful home. The beach trails and access are great, lots of tide pools, harbor seals to watch, beautiful restive area. Great size kitchen and amenties to do lots of cooking. The hot tub was great for relaxing too. Hope this is the first year of many to visit this home, was so wonderful. Thanks Rosebud!

Anniversary escape

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I have stayed here many time in the past few years, as an anniversary escape. This place is in a perfect location not too far away & if you've forgotten anything the stores in town are a short distance away. The private beach is so calm & quiet. Each time we've visted it has been simply perfect weather to sit & have a picnic and enjoy the beach & the surf. The house has a nice private hot tub, sauna, outdoor shower and sun deck. The neighbors aren't too close so you feel quite secluded. with the living space upstairs you get a great veiw of the surrounding areas & the ocean. a short walk down to the beach, you can see deer & foxes, if you are there at the right time you can see seals and their pups. We enjoyed this vacation rental, a great home away from home to enjoy the north coast.
