About Caryl Morrison

Property Owner of Sea Ranch home

Caryl Morrison purchased this house in 2003

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the house immensely and, w/several decades of SR rentals to draw on, it’s lovely to be in a home that shows pride of ownership—nice furnishings, art, etc—even tho it’s a second home & rental. We’re very much looking forward to our birthday/anniversary week return in April. (BTW, the towering surf was absolutely awesome to watch from the LR window seat!)

We just got back from our second stay at Ocean Bluff, and again it didn't dissapoint! The house is amazingly clean, the hot tub is hot, and the views are spectacular. The kitchen is gourmet, and has a full array of cookware. On top of all this it's just minutes from Gualala which has a couple nice grocery stores, restraunts, and a video rental store. The porch is literally yards from the coastal hiking trail, and you can see whales without even going outside. We loved it, and 100% are ready to go back!

What a fabulous house with a fabulous view! The back door is just steps from the walking trail that hugs the coast, with views that promise to wow you. The weather during our visit was spectacular and we walked and hiked and enjoyed the beauty of the coast...all from our back door. The kitchen was well stocked, the gas grill worked well, the hot tub was nice and hot! Highly recommend this rental!

Several time renter

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this home several times,both as a couple and with others. With the separate "living rooms" both down and upstairs it is great for those with different interests or wanting their privacy. It is close to town for those needed errands or to go out to eat. We ate all of our meals in the home. It is well stocked in a variety of spices and herbs, a welcome touch that many homes do not have. It even had some of the basic staples that come in handy (oil and flour). If out, we go ahead and leave those staples we purchased as a courtesy to others.

The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and pots and pans. It also has a great pantry area for putting the food and items you might bring.

The spa is protected from the wind, and does have a limited view of the ocean. I would recommend installing a vertical handrail to the wall adjacent to the tub. It would make access to the spa safer and more convenient.

The upper deck view of the ocean off the upper living area is good, and again protected from the wind, especially a north wind. I would recommend having a sitting area on the ocean side of the home for watching sunsets and sipping wine or coffee during the day. The home next door does have such a bench.

There are good curling waves visible from the inside of the home, as well as good crashing waves partially visible, especially from the upper deck. The main bluff trail is just 50' from the home and leads to great eroded rock formations and coves. There were spectacular crashing waves while we were there, with the ground quivering on the bluff.

Home would be great for two couples, especially with the separate living and sleeping areas between the upstairs and downstairs. Both living areas have a large screen TV, large couch, window seats, and entertainment equipment. The upper area even has an extra half-bath.

Awesome home and Awesome owners!

  • 5 of 5

In spite of rainy and cold weather, we managed to have a wonderful week at Sea Ranch for our annual vacation. Ocean Knoll was the reason this was so. It was so comfortable and offered so many special features such as wood for the fire place (very "key" on a rainy day), a kitchen full of the staples and equipment to allow for cooking great meals, a gas grill, hot tub, etc. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine to start the week off right! Caryl was very helpful and gracious as an owner and the company they use to manage the house were terrific. We will definitely return next year!

Our women's group has been coming to this beautiful house for years for a jewelry making session and relaxation.

We love the views, easy access to the trails, and close to town for shopping. Very comfortable and well appointed.

There is nothing not to love about this home. Caryl is so easy to work with and so helpful with questions. We will be back again and again.
