Moonraker House is located approximately 107 miles north of San Francisco off historic and scenic Highway 1. The house is one mile away from the ocean.

Our two bedroom, two bathroom home has an upstairs deck, private hot tub, WiFi, cable televisions, a fully equipped kitchen with bedroom linens and bathroom towels provided.

With 50 miles of private beach, bluff, and forest trails, picnic areas, tide pools, three recreational centers, two marine reserves, a fenced dog park, and an 18 hole championship golf course, there is something for everyone to do without leaving the local area.

Gualala, the closest town, is 8.7 miles north with grocery stores, specialty shops, restaurants, a bank, post office, and gas stations.

Six hundred fenced sheep and goats graze the common areas to eliminate fire hazards and follow The Sea Ranch philosophy of living lightly off the land.

The artist community of Mendocino is fifty-eight miles north and Fort Bragg is nine miles north of Mendocino. Both places are perfect day trips to explore, shop and eat. Charter boats are available for fishing and whale watching in Fort Bragg.

Grey whale migrate December through March and can often be seen off the shore or by boat.

Seal pups are born late March and early April and can be viewed from the bluff trail above the reserve.

Observe pelicans, cormorants, and oyster catchers from ocean bluffs and on the beach

Redwood violets and trilliums bloom around our house in March and April. Then in May and June the Rhododendrons are in full flower.

The Sea Ranch thespians present two productions a year, one in spring, and one in fall.

About Catherine Salm

My parents purchased our family vacation home in 1990 after several years of renting homes on The Sea Ranch and searching for the perfect home for us.

My father wanted a house in the forest and my mother wanted something close to the ocean. This home is the perfect blending of the two.

Catherine Salm purchased this house in 1990

Why Catherine Salm chose North Coast California

We are blessed to be able to share our peaceful home with you. Since our house is located in the forest, we do not have the foot or road traffic the other places do. We rarely see people or cars in the area or on the trails nearby and appreciate the serenity.

The ocean, towns and beaches are close by to explore and there are plenty of things to do in addition to just quietly relaxing in the redwoods.

Lovely house, perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

I love this house! It's like a wooden fortress in the redwood grove, with a lovely roof terrace, and so many cozy corners to read and rest and hide away. During the day, the redwoods give some shade to rest from your morning hike. In the evening, when it's quiet, you can hear the ocean so clearly and the trees smell incredible.

The house itself is very comfortable, and really feels like a weekend home, not a rental. The kitchen is fully equipped, there are plenty of towels and extra blankets. In all, it reminded me of my family's country houses.

I would most definitely come back, and recommend it to anyone coming up to Sea Ranch.

Clean, cozy, well managed forest cabin retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband, dog and I stayed here for our wedding weekend/honeymoon. We loved the house, especially the first and third floor patios - what wonderful places to drink a cup of coffee in the early morning! The entire house, kitchen included, is very well stocked and has everything you need for a great beach weekend. Moonraker house sits right up the hill from Blackpoint Beach and a ton of beautiful trails, making it super easy to step out into nature. It was too hot to use the hot tub, but it looked lovely and was well cared for.

The property and house are clean and well maintained. The owner, Catherine, is very professional and provides extremely fast service. She was so helpful in booking the house and answering questions I had while at the property.

I would highly recommend this rental for anyone looking to spend a quiet weekend in the forest, with close, easy access to the beautiful coastline.
