MORE ABOUT THE SEA RANCH!
The Sea Ranch architectural philosophy is built upon respect for the natural landscape in all its variations: shoreline, meadows, uplands and forests. It is a unique and very special location for your Northern California Vacation. Your rental of a Vacation Home at Sea Ranch California gives you access to swimming and tennis and hiking on miles of coastal and forest trails and several beaches. The California Coastline affords spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. You can watch the seasonal whale migration or the sea lions on the rocks at Shell Beach. Kayak Rentals are available on the Gualala River. The Sea Ranch Golf Links is public and offers a challenging round of golf in a spectacular coastal setting. Groceries, art galleries, gifts and services are available in nearby Gualala. Restaurants offering a range of gourmet meals to simple burgers and pizza are just a short drive away. You may want to take a day trip to Mendocino or Fort Bragg where you can visit art galleries and shops or take a ride on the Skunk Train.
Why vacation at The Sea Ranch?
Views along the rugged coastline. Swimming, tennis, hiking, abalone diving, golf. Seven miles of biking on private roads or meadow trails. Coastal wildlife - watching sea lions and whales. The views are breathtaking!
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 not it is awesome!
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.
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.
I booked Sea Myst for 3 nights for my 60th birthday with my wife. The home is rustic yet reasonably comfortable, tidy, well provisioned and tastefully decorated. The hot tub, and heating work well and the master bedroom bed is very comfortable with the hi quality linens making crawling in wonderful. We felt that the Master BR flat screen is too far from the bed for comfortable viewing and could just as easily be mounted in a fold down on the middle beam at the foot of the bed. However there is a huge new screen in the LR. We ended up watching films (good wifi signal only got wacky during the peak of the storm) on the laptop. We arrived on the first really cold rainy weekend, and discovered there was no wood for the fireplace and the top oven was inoperative requiring the birthday cake to go in the lower oven which didn't reach proper heat and took 2 hours to bake coming out like hard biscotti. From talking to the owner upon discovering this, he explained that the kitchen was original 1972 and a remodel was coming. Both would have been important to know going in as our intent was not to move the car once we parked until we left so I didn't drive out to get firewood or find a repairman for the oven. Luckily we brought a bunch of chinese takeout that lasted us the entire time. The second BR in one side of a converted garage and is best suited for responsible children who you won't mind sharing your bathtub with as it only has a half bath adjacent to it. It would be somewhat awkward for two adult couples, I think. Be careful with the locks on the second BR because they could get locked in. That could be a safety hazard if someone can't get out. The location is the best feature of Sea Myst. Walking to the beach and bluffs is at the end of the street and was our main reason for selecting it. The owners have plenty of amenities, rain coats, bikes, games, umbrellas flashlights and extensive library of books. It was fun looking at Scientific American issues from 1964 in the cozy loft. Although the LR couch sectional is new it isn't the kind of piece that was easy to sink into cozily with a book and a beverage for an afternoon. It was hard to feel really comfortable on it. Overall the time went by way too fast. With an updated and fully functional kitchen and attention to the change in the seasons this place would rate five stars.
A Very Nice Super Clean Cozy 2 Bedroom Ocean View home, in a AMAZING location, This home has everything you need, all you need to do is show up, The Beach is 3 minutes walking distance from the Sea Myst house, there are many different beach's really close to Sea Myst. The Trails are amazing well kept and super clean you can walk / hike as far as you want. On our hike we seen Seals, Dolphins, Deer, lots of wildlife. you can get real close to the deer.
There are allot of resturants close by, we ate Breakfast and lunch in and had dinner out everynight, We would go back in a Heartbeat
We enjoyed our stay. Home was clean and comfortable. Kitchen had everything needed to prepare meals. Enjoyed short walk to beach, hiking trails and ocean views.
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.
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!
Abalone Diving, Whale watching from living room, Great star gazing from hot tub, nearby 10 miles of hiking trails, stand on the bluff and feel the ocean mist kiss your face.
