Gualala House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The Lookout Point is a spacious bluff-top home with spectacular 180 degree coastal views. There are sweeping ocean views from expansive windows in the living room, dining room/kitchen, and bedrooms. While immersed in the ocean's beauty, upon the rhythmic coastal whitewater waves, you may encounter flocks of brown pelicans soaring in flight, Grey whales spouting in migration, or fishing vessels cruising on the coastline. Looking out on the home's wildflower covered bluff, you may gaze upon white-tailed deer grazing, a line of quail scuttling, or a seagull catching a drift-suspended in flight.

The Pacific Ocean is calling you throughout this spacious comfortable home. Dine with ocean sunset views overlooking Castle Rock each evening. Relax in the hot tub looking down on the roaring ocean, or looking up at the starry night sky. Warm yourself by the wood-burning fireplace in the cozy living room. The lower level master bedroom has a private entrance to the two-level deck with oceanfront views from your bed. In addition, the third bedroom has an ocean view. The private master bedroom suite with king bed is perched high, capturing the panoramic oceanfront views up and down the coast-from Anchor Bay to Gualala Point. The sound of the ocean will lull you to sleep.

Nearby beach access which also has hiking trails include- Gualala Point Regional Park, Salar Trail, Shell Beach, Walk-On Beach, and Pebble Beach. The Gualala River, Bower Community Park, and the community airport are just several minutes drive from the home. Other points of interest are Salt Point State Park, Point Arena Pier, Point Arena Lighthouse and the Gualala Arts Center.

The home is in the perfect location with magical forests, sandy beaches, great shopping, and fine restaurants all within just a few minutes drive. It is 1/2 mile North of the small town of Gualala, an hour South of Mendocino and, approximately two 1/2 hours North of San Francisco. This peaceful ocean home where forest meets the sea, is in the Banana Belt which has more temperate climate and less fog. The Viewpoint is such a treasure-with Pacific oceanfront views throughout.

About Debra Raney

For years our family is drawn back again and again into our magnificent ocean environment...our home away from home. We enjoy sharing the joys of our home with others. So, we invite you to make our home yours as well.

Why Debra Raney chose North Coast California

We've driven up and down the Northern coast and always come back still being amazed that we have the best ocean view-the gift that our home imparts.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is my third time here. It's a wonderful place. Breath-taking views, a warm comfortable home, and close to the beach, hiking trails, and the little town. Had a wonderful relaxing time!

Worst rental ever & Worst property manager

  • 1 of 5

Please spare yourself the misery of renting this home. I arrived with two friends for a weekend getaway that was booked a couple of months in advance. We planned to spend the weekend hiking and barbecuing since the ad listed that there was a bbq.

When we arrived at Serenisea (the property management company) to pick up the keys we were told the refrigerator did not work and that the property manager (Jim Hawkins) would bring us some ice. We were told to put all our food in the freezer. When we asked for another unit we were told there were none available. When we tried to leave he told us that he would still charge the full fee for the house because we did not cancel before the 8 day cancellation policy! He refused to even discuss a discount! We then found out that the property manager knew about the fridge not working two months prior! The receptionist also told us that she had reminded him about the fridge not working two days ago so he knew full well there was not a working refrigerator at the house.

Additionally the house is quite dilapidated and in need of repairs including blinds in the main room which fell down on us as we opened them; a disgusting grill that could not be used at all; and wooden floor boards that fell on us as we used the jacuzzi. The only good thing about this house is the view.

This house is in serious need of updating and a completely different property management company. I will be reporting Serenisea to the BBB. I suggest not renting ANY unit that is managed by Serenisea!

Hawkins House Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the Hawkins House. The location is ideal being so close to the little village of Gualala, as well as nearby beaches.. The oceanfront views from all the windows in the home are magnificent! From the first level master bedroom, you can look out over the ocean from the bed without even lifting your head. We enjoyed dining each night overlooking a gorgeous sunset. In the hot tub, the clear starry sky is above and the ocean roars below. This ocean home is spacious, well kept, and very clean. Thanks for sharing your home.

Great View, less so inside.

  • 4 of 5

Spectacular ocean view during the day, and we had great stars from all three nights in the hot tub. Wonderfully soothing to hear the ocean rhythms all night. A beautiful spot! The (gas) "wood stove" did a fine job of heating the main room, we found the upstairs master bedroom very comfortable. The main floor vertical blinds need some serious attention and reconsideration, i.e. update blinds to something more functional and 21st century. (Re-hole punching the other end of the blind?? Really?) We did not use the kitchen, nor the other guest rooms, so cannot comment on those amenities. We recommend liberating the teddy bears from their closet confinement at the beginning of your stay. "Trinks" in Gualala is good dinner & breakfast, and try their gelato! Amazing! We enjoyed St.Orres too, although slightly pricey for what one gets, i.e. it's a touch casual for the price you're paying.
