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, 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.

Nice spot for two couples or a small family.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice comfortable home. We loved all the thoughtful touches, like soft bath robes and a very detailed binder on things to do in the ares. Everything was labeled for easy operation location and in good working order. We especially enjoyed the hot tub!

Lovely home in an fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do the place justice, we expected a intimate little two bedroom but the home was very spacious. Extremely nice, tranquil neighborhood that was perfect for a calming weekend getaway.

A terrific retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely, relaxing stay at Sea Ranch. The house suited our family of four very well, with two super comfortable king size beds, a hot tub that we thoroughly enjoyed, and a lovely bottle of red wine waiting on the counter upon our arrival. We have never before rented a house that offered such a well stocked kitchen, so it was easy to cook delicious meals for ourselves. We enjoyed walking along the ocean cliff, exploring the redwood forest, watching the winter tide roll in and out again at the beach in Gualala. The market in town had everything we needed. Keith was super responsive to our inquiry and shared really thorough information and instructions before our stay. We very much appreciated his forethought so that no question went unanswered. Our only problem was that the ample supply of wood was damp due to the moist air (no fault of Keith), which made it difficult to build a raging fire. In the future we will plan to buy bundles of dry wood at the market. We highly recommend this property and would stay again if we return to the area. Thanks, Keith!!

Nice Vacation Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was very well maintained, and had an Ocean view in the kitchen and the master bedroom. The owner was very responsive to my questions. There were dog towels for whipping little paws, which was a great little amenity. Very warm and inviting home to vacation during Christmas. A special thank you for providing a Christmas tree that was decorated.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home! Kitchen is well stocked and the house was very clean. A welcome book has everything you need...hiking trail maps, directions for how to use things in the house, etc. We felt so welcome in such a warm, cozy home...especially with the addition of the Christmas tree. Would absolutely stay in this home again.
