Guestbook comments from the manager

Albatross Cove was exactly what we were looking for. A position right on the bluff trail. A clean, modern, Zen-like interior. It was well-equipped with everything we needed, particularly the kitchen. And the perfectly located hot tub was something we looked forward to at the end of a long day hiking. We've already booked another stay, and highly recommend it for anyone looking to chill and enjoy nature.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Albatross Cove. What an amazing property! The home offers a warm, welcoming interior with modern spaces and fabulous ocean views. It has a large, open chef's kitchen with all the amenities and a great space for visiting. We loved the private courtyard and watching the night sky and ocean views from the hot tub. And the master bath has a shower for two to die for! Everything is immaculate and very well maintained and the owners were accommodating of our needs. The subtle sophistication and comfort of the home, great location offering easy access to bluff trails, and fabulous coastal views provided us with a lovely stay and a much needed restful retreat. Now that we have stayed at Albatross Cove, we can't imagine staying anywhere else in Sea Ranch! We will be returning!

We have rented many homes over the years at Sea Ranch; however, the new listing, Albatross Cove is now top of our list. This very new architect designed home is a masterpiece, taking full advantage of the beautiful ocean views. It is conveniently located for walkers who enjoy the coast trail, as well as being within walking distance of the recreational enter, pool and tennis courts. We loved the very large and livable space which includes a fabulous kitchen and counter, dining area and very comfortable living room, all with gorgeous views of the ocean. The master bedroom gave us privacy, yet provided generous views. We enjoyed this home and felt very fortunate to find it on the rental list. We will certainly be returning to Albatross Cove.

We love this property because it is recently built, so everything is new and working perfectly. The design of the house is amazingly contemporary and sleek. The views are truly amazing and the ocean is visible from every room. The open kitchen/living design and separate bedroom wings work great for entertaining or two couples. Everything is top-of-the-line and immaculate.

Absolutely Perfect Coastal Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly loved our stay in this prestine house by the sea. This recently built modern home with an open floor plan is in immaculate condition. It is bright, welcoming and very comfortable. Everything you need is at your fingertips! There is a beautiful outdoor jacuzzi area off the master. The views are spectacular. It is close to hiking paths along the ocean bluffs or in the coastal meadows. The beach is a short walk and it's a short drive to golfing and great restaurants. The owners are so easy to deal with and were very cooperative, and helpful since this was our first time in Sea Ranch. This was the perfect retreat from our hectic everyday life. I could not recommend a home more highly and we cannot wait to stay here again for our next Sea Ranch get-away.

Very relaxing but a goldfish bowl.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home, great views, perfect location. Only one thing stopped us giving it 5 stars - no blinds or drapes in the master bedroom. This wouldn't be an issue if the window didn't face a trail and several other houses. So if you don't mind being in a goldfish bowl go for it.

Owner's Response: Hi John, Thank you for your review of our home at the Sea Ranch. We do appreciate your response and the information you provided regarding the blinds. We will be addressing the privacy issue in the Master Bedroom with blinds in the next couple of weeks. We hope you come and stay again at our vacation home at the Sea Ranch. Return renters will receive a $50 credit for their next stay. Gardner & Susie, Owners
