Native to the California Bay Area, Ken and Laura Scheidegger today live in the California Delta where they own a family farm, farmers market and a restaurant. Ken is a PhD in Oceanography and headed the PhD program at Oregon State for many years. The location of The Pelican House offers Ken the perfect setting from which he can enjoy his true love ... the Sea.
Ken and Laura Scheidegger purchased this house in 1989
Over the years the family has enjoyed The Sea Ranch and all of the joys that come with it. From Ab Diving to Golf ... the Scheideggers have built wonderful memories from their time at The Sea Ranch. The location of The Pelican House is one of the first developed and represents the best that The Sea Ranch has to offer. Busy lives have kept the family from visiting the house and it is time to share with others what they have so enjoyed over the years.
One of the finest locations in Sea Ranch! Only nature lies between you and the beautiful cliffs and majestic ocean of the The Sea Ranch coast. The Ocean Front Hiking Trail is seconds from the front door and the golf course is minutes away. The setting and layout of the property and house allow you to feel as though it is you and the Sea with nothing in between but indigenous grasses, plants, deer, and the occasional fox! Enjoy a cup of tea or glass of wine on the spacious and open deck as you take in your unobstructed view of the ocean. Particularly in March and October, you will most likely see the grand whale migration! Pelicans effortlessly soar above the coastline inspiring a feeling of peace and serenity - we hope you will find this same feeling when you visit The Pelican House.
We are gone so much we look for places we can take our dog. This place is clean and nice. Neighbors seem really close at first but you have great privacy on the deck. It does need some small things like the knob on the oven has the numbers worn off. Hard to know what temperature the oven is. That an the ice maker working would be great
Small touches would make it a five
We really enjoyed having a one story house and loved the privacy of the bedrooms being located at opposite ends of the house. The home was well equipped and everything was in working order. Great view from the deck and easy access to trails and town. We also liked being close to the Del Mar pool. We'll rent this home again.
My wife and I spent a long weekend here with old friends -- wonderfully restful! A *very* quiet and peaceful area; a lovely meadow view with a slice of ocean, and a nice deck to take it in from; a cool marine layer with intermittent sun in mid-day, making an ever-shifting palette of greys and blues on the water, a 5-minute walk from the house. The beds were great; all of us remarked on sleeping so well there. Just the getaway and relaxed visit we'd hoped for. I concur with the other reviewers about the house's amenities and the area's services. Excellent communication and service from the rental staff; thank you! Highly recommended.
Nice location for one or two couples. Just a short walk to the Oceanside trails.
Our family of 5 with our dog stayed two nights and it was perfect. The view breath taking, daily coastal hikes and enjoying some down time. We make delicious meals at home and worked a puzzle. Three teens fully present. We would definitely stay her again.
Note: VRBO list what is not included but most of it is. Hair dyer, spices, foil etc. actually where there a the home.
My daughter and her family, plus a family friend, plus a well behaved dog stayed for 2 nights and loved your place. They said the beds were great, the shower was great and they loved spending time on the deck--sheltered from the wind, facing the meadow and the beautiful Pacific. Said they would definitely stay there again if we're full at our place! Thanks for sharing your home with us.
