Overview

Sea Ranch House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Charming beach cottage in the desirable south end of Sea Ranch. Two bedrooms, each with king beds and separate bathrooms, large living room with wood burning fireplace, gourmet kitchen, vaulted wood ceilings, warm and sunny decks and beautiful views of ocean, meadow and mountains. A stone’s throw from the Bluff Trail and the ocean and a short walk to Pebble and Black Point Beaches and the Sea Ranch Lodge. Located on a quite, dead-end street far from the highway. Recently enhanced with skylights, new hot tub and deck, wine cooler, appliances, carpet, furniture, granite countertops, custom decorator touches and lots more. High Speed Wireless access, computer and iPod ready surround sound system!! Bring your work and all your tunes and stay an extra week.

The Sea Ranch is internationally known and revered for its attempt to blend man-made structures with their natural setting. This most picturesque area of California, 100 miles north of San Francisco dotted with distinctive homes, spreads for about ten miles on either side of Highway One in the coastal Sonoma County. The building design is unique in its architecture, and the challenge to 'live lightly on the land' is on-going.

With three swimming pools, saunas, tennis courts, a 18-hole championship golf course, and 45 miles of hiking trails that meander along the coastal cliffs, through meadows and forests, there is no shortage of outdoor activity for your Sea Ranch vacation. And after a hard day of having fun, soak in the spa, have a glass of wine and enjoy the sunset over the ocean.

Why Keith Brown chose North Coast California

Sea Ranch is without equal. The ocean, mountains, wildlife - a little something for everyone in one of the most pleasant and tranquil climates on the planet.

What makes this house unique

A four mile hike to Two Fish Bakery is definitely on the agenda to start each morning. The hike begins after stepping out the front door and into the coastal meadow which surrounds house. Slowly the pounding of the surf receeds as you make your way from the ocean and into the trees and up the ridge. Tall redwoods tower over head while ferns blanket the ground. Once conquering the ridge, a well-deserved sticky buns awaits at Two Fish and pleasant downhill walk home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really appreciate all of the attention to details that you and your wife obviously went through to make stays here enjoyable and comfortable. I have rented vacation houses for many years and can honestly say that your house is one of the best that I have encountered. Not only are the accommodations, furnishings and amenities nice, clean and comfortable, but all the little "homey" furnishings scattered around make your place feel very welcoming. The binder with all of the information is just amazing. I have never seen anything as well organized and instructive as that in a vacation rental. I mean, you even had instructions on use to use the light switches! The kitchen is well stocked with everything one needs to cook. One little suggestion is that it would have been nice if you had a dish drying rack available. We don't always like to use the dishwasher, especially when something just needs rinsing, so we hand washed quite a few things everyday and placed them on a towel on the counter top.

Beautiful, peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our young family, three children ages 4 - 9. This house was the perfect getaway! Trails all around for hiking, walking and running. The neighborhood was quiet and the surrounding area was beautiful. The house had everything we needed for the week and all directions for operation were clear and precise. We absolutely would recommend this vacation home for your trip to Sea Ranch. We will be back!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

The home is impeccably clean and well organized, spacious and quiet. The fact that they provide linens (very nice ones I might add) and bathrobes makes it so much easier. The location is convenient to everything. We all, including our 10 yr. old golden retriever, loved sitting on the back deck looking at the meadow and the ridge beyond, watching and listening to the birds. One of our best times at Sea Ranch yet, and we've had many! Thanks Keith for a wonderful time.

Should have stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

Three of us came to Sea ranch to do a 50K at Salt Point. What a beautiful house in the meadow. We could not believe our luck finding such a great place. Our only mistake was not booking for a longer stay. The beds were comfortable(very comfortable!!!). The after run soak in the hot tub was just what our bodies needed. At night we sat outside and looked at the stars while the crashing waves serenaded us. We'll be back again for a longer stay!

Best house I ever rented

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed from the moment I walked in. The house was sparkling clean and smelled fresh. The house was spacious and a great deal for where it was and how nice it was. I enjoyed all the original watercolor artwork on the walls, it shows the owner has class and cares about art. My wife loved the overstuffed chair and ottoman.

The beds were very comfortable and I slept like a baby. The complimentary bottle of wine was a nice touch. Everything was there and I found nothing lacking.

We even had several deer walk by outside in the field. We also saw a grey fox, several species of birds, and the ocean walks were excellent.

I had an opportunity to do several scetches and take numerous photos.

Sea Ranch is truelly beautiful!

The home was very clean, and exactly what it had been portrayed in the advertisement. The instruction book was great for places to tour, eat and shop. Totally enjoyable!

Thank you!
