About Caryl Morrison

Property Owner of Sea Ranch home

Caryl Morrison purchased this house in 2003

What makes this house unique

There is parking for 2 vehicles: One in garage and the other in secluded, shared parking area: right in front of house for easy unloading.

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!)

3rd Time At This Serene Home - Love It!

  • 5 of 5

Sigh.... this is such a restful home & setting in The Sea Ranch. Love the close proximity to the Ocean Bluff Trail and the amazing ocean views! After walking for hours on the trail, I love to sit in the window bench in the living room reading a book. It's fun seeing the wildlife - deer, different birds. I miss it! I've stayed at Ocean Knolls 3 times in the past year and will definitely return. As soon as we walk in the door we feel comfortable and like we just came "home".

Fantastic destination!

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Knolls is a fabulous rental. The views are stunning and the location is great. You are less than 5 minutes to great golf and about 10 minutes to the town of Gualala with a fantastic grocery store and some very good dining options.

The house is perfect. It is very well equipped with just about every kitchen item (non food) you could want or need for cooking and serving. Actually there is also a wide range of spices and various other miscellaneous food items as well.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are well equipped with plenty of nice quality linens and towels.

The owner and the local property management company are very responsive to your needs.

We have stayed at several different Sea Ranch properties over the years but this is now our “go to” destination.

We had the best possible experience!

As soon as I got there I checked into VRBO to check if they had more dates available within the next months.

This house has everything we could have wished for!

I was looking for a long time a place that could reunite all that we were interested of:

- really close to the sea

- privacy

- hot tub

- terrace / barbecue place / garden

- a place where you could enjoy every moment of the day and in every kind of weather (and you are not restricted to your hotel room)

Either you want to take a walk or a run next to the sea, to have a long breakfast in pyjamas, have a long barbecue lunch at the terrace, enjoy the hot tub under the rain or at night, watch a movie or have some wine and cheese next to the fireplace, read a book with an amazing view... here you can do it all!

The kitchen is also super well equipped (important point if you are a food lover).

The only thing I would recommend is to provide with some speakers for playing music in the living room without having to turn on the TV. Take your speakers if your heading there and you enjoy music.

Beside of that, I am completely speechless!

Thank you for the amazing anniversary weekend we had!

We hope to be there soon!

Fantastic Stay! Incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Caryl's home was incredibly relaxing. Communication with Caryl ahead of time was easy and straight-forward. An information guide, passes, keys were all waiting for us upon our arrival. The kitchen is very well stocked with utensils and condiments. Gualala is only 5 minutes awaiting by car for any grocery items. The room arrangement worked very well for our family of four, and everyone slept soundly. We spent many hours reading and watching the waves from the window nook - several times whales spouted in the background. Public coastal walking trails are a 100' from the home for miles and miles of scenic hikes / runs. Don't miss the harbor seals about 2 miles south of the property! Highly recommended stay!

Thank you for such a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home and will definitely return. Couldn't ask for a better location. It's very comfy, clean and had everything we needed. It was just my husband & I but there is plenty of room for a family. The kitchen is well stocked. We're picky about mattresses and the bed in the master suite is very comfortable, we slept like babies. We loved sitting in front of the fire or the window seat watching the waves crash (we had very high surf while we were there). There are walking trails right outside the back of the house which go a long ways in both directions along the water. Can't go wrong with this house.
