About the property

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 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.


Sonoma County Transient Occupancy Tax Certificate No. 749N.

Why Keith Brown chose Sea Ranch

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 peaceful meadow setting with mountain and partial ocean views. Only 100 yards to the ocean so no shortage of the calming sounds of the ocean surf. Lots of deck space for socializing with friends and the perfect two bedroom/bath arrangement for two couples. A well equipped kitchen for the perfect dinner.

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.

Comfortable, inviting, relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the property was magnificent. The house is impeccably maintained. The fireplace made the house very “homey” and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped with everything (and more!) than we could have needed. And the trails along the bluff were easy to access. We will definitely return!

You will have a fantastic experience staying here. The hosts are extremely organized; they have thought of everything. Wifi is not great so make sure you have a hot spot. Verizon works perfectly. Absolutely exquisite location.

Amazing views and peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sea Ranch. If you are looking for a break from the world, this is it! This place offers something year round. Soft paths with incredible views of the ocean and it’s life; a hot tub with a starry view; comfy beds, plenty of hot water; a fireplace; swimming in a nearby heated pool with a Pacific backdrop; and though not luxurious, the accommodations are welcoming and comfortable.

Keith is quick to respond and a boon of information. We plan on returning and sharing this with others!

Perfect getaway for two

  • 5 of 5

The house is cozy and comfortable, with a great fireplace and a well-appointed kitchen. We made food every night and hiked all over during the day. Bed was incredibly comfortable and the shades on the windows helped us sleep in! Especially loved the big tub in the master bedroom, plus each bedroom has a bathroom which would be great for privacy if anyone had stayed with us. Keith was very prompt and responsive, and the property had binders with tons of info - very clear instructions, stuff to do, best hikes, nearby attractions, and more! Easy to get into and out of, without waiting for keys or anything else. Overall perfect experience and with every penny.
