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.

Absolute serenity!

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing on the coast for the past 12 years. This stay at the Moonraker was our favorite by far. We loved the quiet remote feeling we had sitting on the back deck. The home itself was well maintained and absolutely perfect for our family. We enjoyed a daily fire in the fireplace and taking long walks in the Redwoods surrounding the property. We are normally an adventurous family, but the coziness of the cabin kept us close to "home" for our entire stay. Catherine and her family made our stay especially wonderful because of their hospitality and incredible attention to detail and our needs. This was the absolute perfect vacation for us - home away from home and all we needed to bring was a some clothing and a few bags of food - everything else was provided!! Thank you Catherine and family for making our summer 2017 the best ever!!

Can't Wait To Return

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful and relaxing stay. This property is nestled in the woods. Many windows that look out into the forest. Private, secluded location. Surrounding area has many walking trails. Coastal access is less than 2 miles away.

Home was tastefully furnished and immaculate. We plan to visit again.

AWESOME POSSUM

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cabin for a Momcation and it was AMAZING. Super clean property, hot tubbing in the middle of woods, crockpot in the kitchen (what?!), nice beds and the owner was INSANELY quick to respond to any questions and even gave us suggestions about dinner places and super sweet and accommodating when we begged to get an early check-in. Most definitely will be renting this place again it is bookmarked in my faves. All of the moms agreed we didn't want to go home.

1 of 3 rec centers is right down the hill and super convenient, 6 billion beaches within a 15 mt or less drive, grocery stores within 30 mt drive in Gualala. LOVED LOVED LOVED it here. The only bad thing was we were not tech savy enough to figure out how to turn on volume on the tv for half a day (don't laugh until you try); and the wifi was spotty but everyone's wifi is spotty because its only dish but seriously you're on vacation do you really want to be tied to your email?

Peaceful Retreat!!!

  • 5 of 5

Such a quaint lovely home and location!

The kitchen was well equipped with everything one may need... including a picnic basket! The beds were very comfortable, not to firm not too soft. The home itself was very clean and well kept, a perfect place to relax after a day of hiking. While we were there the evenings were cool enough to enjoy both the fire place and the jacuzzi in the most picturesque setting.

The owner was wonderful to work with and so prompt. She obviously takes pride in sharing her home and strives for her guest to love it as much as she does.
