About The Owner

We found Sea Myst as we were driving home from the Mendocino Coast. As we lamented the thought of leaving the ocean we happened on the for sale sign pointing to a house at the world famous Sea Ranch. We stopped and the rest is our Sea Myst history . One that we hope to pass on to our grandchildren.

The minute we walked into this house we knew we were home! The view, the feel and we didn't realize the best beach on Sea Ranch was 2 minutes away. The more we learned about the family who built the house the more we felt a connection to this house. Here it is five years later and we are more in love with Sea Myst and Sea Ranch than ever. You will fall in love too...

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose North Coast California

why not it is awesome!

What makes this house unique

Walking in the front door, the house is warm from the afternoon sun and the water is so blue you just melt. A short stroll to the beach and you are in a different world surrounded by driftwood, sand and the sound of the surf.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Lucy,

Your house was wonderful! I felt like I was entering my own

house, there were so many familiar touches - like the Buddhas and

garden shrine, some of the books, the music, and the very well-

equipped kitchen! We've stayed in a number of vacation rentals all

over the world, but yours was the one that was the most

comforting. Sea Ranch is an exceptional place, and you are lucky

to own property there. Seeing the wildlife, gazing at the stars from

the hot tub - well, we probably sound like all the people who spend

time at your house - thrilled. It was great to be away from the city,

the lights, the noise and congestion. A real retreat.

I hope we can come back again some time. The drive is a

bit daunting - four hours from San Jose is a long journey for a

weekend. But I felt it was well worth it.

Thank you for all the wonderful touches. You forgot nothing

in your attempts to make your guests feel pampered, comfortable,

and at home.

Sea Myst: Return to nature and be refreshed!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Sea Myst. We love it there because the beach is only a short walk away. This year we were lucky enough to sea a sea otter swim by and climb up onto the rocks! During our stay we also played tennis and swam at the recreation centers. The house is maintained and very well furnished and comfortable. Everything we needed to make our meals was there. We plan on returning again when we need to be refreshed.

My family and I had a very restful and rejuvenating stay at Sea Myst. We felt very at home and loved how close we were to the beach. We would definitely stay there again.

Fabulous stay at this beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my elderly mother and my dog, and enjoyed every minute of my stay. The home is loaded with windows and a spectacular view of the Pacific. The master bedroom is huge, the hot tub therapeutic, the kitchen is sufficient, and the spare bedroom was very comfortable. Walks along the trails were the highlight of the trip with beautiful spring flowers , some babbling brooks, and of course breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. John was very helpful and accessible on the first night of the trip with answering some questions. I had a wonderful time and am planning to return!

A perfect spot at Sea Ranch

  • 5 of 5

We spent a glorious 3 days at this adorable home at Sea Ranch. We enjoyed reading in the sun filled living room, sitting on the comfy couch, cooking meals in the kitchen which included everything we needed, soaking in the hot tub watching the stars, sleeping in the king size bed, with the window open listening to the ocean!

The house is nicely decorated and well located within Sea Ranch. You can quickly walk to the bluff trail and walk for miles in either direction. It's also close to the town of Gualala for groceries or eating out or venturing farther north. Sea Ranch is an oasis far removed from the craziness of the Bay area and spending a few days here will easily restore your soul!

The house is not 100% updated, BUT that didn't matter one bit. It was spotlessly clean and the furnishings were very upscale. The kitchen was totally functional with plenty of cookware, dishware and spices and condiments!

There were only 2 of us, but the second bedroom was fine if you had 4 people and there was plenty of room in the home to accommodate more people. We hope to come back in the not too distant future!

Highly recommended!!!

Great home away from home!

My husband and our small dog and I stayed at Sea Myst for a long weekend and only wish we could have stayed longer. Great location, very comfortable home with ocean views from every room. We would come back in a heartbeat!

A Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

The Sea Myst house was a great mix of the Sea Ranch escape and at home comforts. We ran off to the fish market to get some fresh dinner and the kitchen was well stocked with the items we needed to make a great meal. We rolled the bicycles out of the garage and rode through the streets feeling like kids again. The library in this house was great -- there's a book called 'A Guide to Troubled Birds' in the kitchen that you just have to pick up and thumb through -- after this weekend I sent in my order at the used bookstore for a couple copies of the books that caught my eye. Overall a great stay! Thank you Sea Myst.
