About the property

Main house: 2 Bed/2.5B plus loft, 'Casita': 1 Bed/1 Bath, Sleeps 8

Our home is a perfect rental for two families or 3-4 couples. We have completed a 360 sq. ft. loft addition in late December 2016. The house and casita sleep maximum of 8. Our home is very well maintained (one of number one reasons people appreciate our home) and tastefully decorated with a Sea Ranch/Pottery Barn look and a high-end kitchen. Four decks to enjoy panoramic amazing ocean and garden views. Easy walk to Shell Beach and privately located at the end of the cul-de-sac. Located on .5 acre with empty .5 acre lots on either side. Our rates DO NOT include casita. See notes on rate page for adding casita. Three gas hearths, 2 large HD television with DVR, hot tub, free wireless internet service included. Wireless will allow streaming (Netflex, etc) beginning December 1st. Main House: 1 King, 1 Queen, 1 queen sofa bed (top of the line American Leather brand) in loft, window seats for children. Casita: 1 Queen. ( Please note that we do not rent the 'Casita' alone.)

There is an openness to this home not only inside with its many windows but outside too. Unique to our house is the large open mowed space surrounding the house which has allowed for many a whiffle ball game, soccer, bocce, frisbee or kite flying. Bring your bicycles to enjoy either mountain biking on the trails or biking Leeward Road for a 8 mile roundtrip from our house on a road with little elevation change.

We designed the detached 'Casita' for a unique suite with its own deck, gas fireplace, and spectacular views. Family & guests cannot decide which master suite they like best at the house. Our decks give you lots of options for sun or shade & protection from wind. The solar effect on the vast front windows keep the house toasty warm on cold days.

Our home have linens provided with the beds made so that you can enjoy your visit from the moment you walk in the door. You will find kitchen & bath towels too. Through our years of renting, we discovered many homes lacked kitchen amenities. We enjoy cooking & decided to outfit the kitchen with good kitchen dishes, sharp knives, pots and pans, lots of spices and seasonings for the gourmet chef. Views from the kitchen windows will make you want to cook. The couch and window seats will draw you for a nap, reading a book, or watching the wildlife. Deer love to graze around the house and often take their afternoon naps under the shade of a tree down from the house. Don't be surprised to see hawks, turkeys, or a fox walk by. You can take a walk or bike ride to Shell or Tidepool Beach. The seals are always there, taking their naps or watching you as you explore the beach. Another favorite spot in the house is the game table (downstairs & upstairs) with views as you do a jigsaw puzzle or play one of the many games provided.

PLEASE NOTE: PRICES ON RATE PAGE ARE FOR MAIN HOUSE ONLY. YOU NEED TO ADD PRICE OF CASITA FOR 8 ADULTS. See NOTES section for CASITA pricing.

One-Eyed Jack playground is a short distance away and our grandchildren love exploring the cypress hedgerow next to the playground.We are sure you will enjoy your stay and love the peacefulness & beauty of The Sea Ranch.

About Peggy & Tom Phister

Our family camped on the North Coast for nearly 30 years with a love of the ocean, abalone diving and good times camping with family and friends. We learned of The Sea Ranch and began to rent homes after our camping area was closed. We soon discovered the wonderful amenities and luxuries that Sea Ranch offered.

We decided to name our house 'Abalone Point' since we loved abalone diving and we met 44 years ago on Catalina Island and loved swimming at Abalone Point on Catalina Island. We are now retired and can spend the time to maintain and keep our Sea Ranch home up to our standards.

Peggy & Tom Phister purchased this house in 2008

Why Peggy & Tom Phister chose North Coast California

'Abalone Point' was under property management for 4 years but we now have the time to manage the property ourselves and offer amenities not possible before. Our home will now have linens provided with the beds made so that you can enjoy your visit from the moment you walk in the door. You will find kitchen & bath towels too. Through our years of renting, we discovered many homes lacked kitchen amenities. We enjoy cooking & decided to outfit the kitchen with good kitchen dishes, knives, pots and pans, lots of spices and seasonings for the gourmet chef. Please let us know if we are missing some! Views from the kitchen windows will make you want to cook. The couch and window seat will draw you for a nap, reading a book, or watching the wildlife. Deer love to graze around the house and often take their afternoon naps under the shade of a tree down from the house. Don't be surprised to see hawks, turkeys, or a fox walk by. You can take a walk or bike ride to Shell or Tidepool Beach. Our grandchildren love collecting shells and other treasures at these amazing spots (especially at low tide). The seals are always there, taking their naps or watching you as you explore the beach. Another favorite spot in the house is the game table with views as you do a jigsaw puzzle or play one of the many games provided.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the openness of this home not only inside but outside. Unique to our house is the large open mowed space surrounding the house which has allowed for many a whiffle ball game, soccer, bocce, frisbee or kite flying. Bring your bicycles to enjoy either mountain biking on the trails or biking Leeward Road for a 8 mile roundtrip from our house on a road with little elevation change.

We designed the detached 'Casita' for a unique suite with its own deck, gas fireplace, flat screen t.v., DVD & spectacular views. Family & guests cannot decide which master suite they like best at the house. You will see from our photo album at the house that we have done much of the work ourselves from installing slate floors, painting, to unique artistic light fixtures. Our decks give you lots of options for sun or shade & protection from wind. The solar effect on the vast front windows keep the house toasty warm on cold days. We are sure you will enjoy your stay and love the peacefulness & beauty of The Sea Ranch.

Abalone Point is a 5+ star in our book!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Abalone Point around midnight, feeling travel-sick and exhausted. Driving on the winding CA-1 is breathtaking during the day, but is intense in the dark; we learned that from this experience. Thankfully, Peggy gave us clear directions and we were able to find the property without any problem. We instantly loved the house; there was a sense of welcome right when we opened the door; the layout of the rooms is artistically lovely and perfect. We crashed in deep sleep until morning and felt refreshed when we woke up. Abalone Point is actually more beautiful than in the photos.

We took several hikes along the Bluff Trail and the views were spectacular! There are several spots along the trail where groups of sea lions enjoy themselves.

Absolutely would recommend!

Great Long Weekend at Abalone Point

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at Abalone Point! There were several things we really appreciated: 1) Lockbox was really convenient and not having to drive to Gualala to pickup keys was really nice. 2) Very spacious interior, with lots of seating and lounging space. 3) Relatively secluded at the end of the cul-de-sac. Didn't really see any neighbors during our stay. 4) Great price especially with the 3 for 2 deal offered during the off-season.

The house offered excellent accommodations and was really clean and comfortable. Will definitely consider staying at Abalone Point again!

Amazing Stay - Family of 4

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing four day stay at this home. The hot tub was great; pre-heated to 101 degrees and we turned it up to 104 degrees. Yahoo! Beautiful home with tons of amenities. Great kitchen, fully stocked. Wild turkey and deer grazed in front of the home in the early morning and evening. Kids loved the home as well. We went mushroom hunting in Salt Point Park, walked down the block to enjoy Shell Beach (amazing beach, saw whales spouting off the coastline AND we even saw a group of Leopard Sharks swimming in a tidal pool north of Gualala.

The owners of the home were very responsive in answering questions and setting up the stay for us; and they were traveling internationally at the time!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The description is accurate. We had a wonderful time and felt comfortable most the time. All the notes did make us feel a little anxious like we might do something wrong but in the end it was only a minor annoyance. We would all come back!

Nice Ocean View Home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at sea ranch, this property was nicely located within walking distance of the shore and local beaches. The home was furnished and the beds were confertable with a nice use of space. The electronics all worked properly and the internet was satisfactory. We did use the spa it was great. The kitchen had nice relatively new appliances however a few of the pans should be tossed and replaced, the master bedroom had spa tub and a great shower area. the decks outside were fantastic and the views were wonderful. We had a great time.

Prefect fit for our family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Sea Ranch has been a part of your family since I was little. To do something fun, and different, we decided to have our family Christmas enjoying Sea Ranch. Our oldest daughter is married with a 6 month old. The Casitas, atop the garage, was a prefect get away for them. The rest of the house was cozy and well appointed for our family needs. Cooking Christmas dinner away from my home kitchen was a worry. There wasn't a thing I lacked for any cooking needs. The close proximity to the bluffs and beach made it prefect for the afternoon sunset stoles. Hopefully, we will be back again to make more memories.
