Dog-friendly home w/ hot tub, deck & patio - walk to shared pool/sauna/tennis!

Spend an unforgettable family vacation at this three-bedroom Sea Ranch home, a quiet, dog-friendly escape with a private hot tub, a wrap-around deck, and easy walking access to a community swimming pool, tennis courts, and saunas.

You'll find this beautiful home immediately west of California Highway 1, just a quarter-mile down Leeward Road from the heated outdoor pool, saunas, and tennis courts at the Del Mar Recreation Center. Walk a few minutes down the street to hike the spectacular Bluff Trail, tee off at the Sea Ranch Golf Links one mile north, and take a three-mile drive into downtown Gualala to peruse the art galleries and pick up a few specialty foods at the Surf Market.

Whether you've come to Sea Ranch to relax or reconnect with loved ones, you'll find a welcoming home in the open great room. Pile on the plush sofas with a fire burning in the wood stove (logs are even provided), spend foggy mornings curled up with a book or a board game, and spend wonderful evenings at home in the company of free WiFi, four flatscreen cable TVs, and a DVD/Blu-ray player.

Use the waffle iron, blender, and stainless steel appliances to whip up breakfast each morning, and leave the plates in the dishwasher for easy clean-up. Leash up your dog for a scenic stroll to Walk On Beach on the Bluff Trail (please note that a 50-lb. weight limit and a nightly pet fee apply), and return home to lounge on the deck and patio, prepare the gas grill for dinner, and luxuriate in the soothing comfort of the outdoor hot tub.

Fall in love with the unmatched tranquility of Sea Ranch - book your escape to the Northern California Coast today!

Can’t wait to go back
Mary M. July 2018
Great that each bedroom has its own bath.
Excellent kitchen ( we like to cook)
Nice porch with views of the sea
The pool is convenient and warm enough for swimming.
Beverly Ann N. July 2018

Everything worked, everything was clean and every amenity was provided.
(only 2 kitchen towels was the only problem)
Manager Response:
We apologize for the low number of dish towels. The property manager will be providing more for the home. Thank you!

The first thing we noticed when we walked into this dog friendly smelled clean! Not cleaning product clean- but as if no one else had been there! Over all the location was great, close to the trails and the pool club. You are close to Hwy1, but it wasn’t noticed inside the house. Hot tub was perfect! Bedrooms are on entry level, so if you have a problem with stairs and need to be in the bedroom frequently that could be an Issue. Beds and family room furniture were comfortable. SUPER ORGANIZED (lots of labels) no guess work here ;). Perfect house if you have a couple of families. A lot of room for gathering, yet room for privacy. We will most definitely be back!

The location is just a short walk to the bluffs and a short drive to the beach.
This house is well equipped and every kitchen cupboard has a label so you can find things . Great kitchen for prepping and cooking your own meals.
The hot-tub on the deck was a big hit with my grandkids.
Very comfortable, spacious bedrooms and living area and a very nice wrap around porch with a bit of a sea view.

A very modern washer/dryer so we could keep our clothes laundered.
My only complaint....not enough dish towels and bath towels... other than that it was a perfect " family" vacation rental.
Manager Response:
We are sorry to see this guest did not have enough towels. The property manager will be providing more towels for guest use. Thank you!

This home is extremely well equipped and has beautiful touches with art and libraries. Great beds, really nice furniture and huge TVs included with Roku. Would stay there anytime. It was truly delightful.

It was a great home. Only thing I would change and why I did not give 5 stars, is it has many stairs. If you are disabled or have a hard time climbing stairs, this is not the vacation rental for you. That was our own fault for not looking further into it prior to renting. But it was beautiful and clean, many wonderful books to read, a big kitchen to cook and host family meals. Comfortable beds, and a nice view of the ocean. We really enjoyed our stay.
Brian P. April 2018
We loved the well stocked kitchen, the comfortable interior, spacious bathrooms, and books and games galore. Our teenager appreciated the super fast internet. Thank you for sharing your lovely home.
Nancy W. April 2018
The house was awesome! Everything was neat, organized and made us feel right at home. The floors are loud so if you’re trying to sleep downstairs, you can hear everything, but other than that, we loved it!! Location was amazing and couldn’t be better!
Kristen M. March 2018
This house has it all. 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 4 beds. Fully stocked and so clean and comfortable. This place has spoiled us.
Mitchell D. March 2018
Great easy access. Everyone loved the space, especially the hot tub!
Carri-Ann Z. March 2018
My family had an amazing time here! Beautiful home and well stocked. My children loved the space and plenty of room for all of us. Both the decks were great, amazing ocean view, as well as not having to worry with our 2 year old out on them. And the view of the ocean was amazing, as well as covered so you could still watch the amazing colors of the sunrise and sunset, and stay dry. The kitchen had everything and more than you can imagine for either a dinner for two or a large family, as well as a propane grill on the deck. Well stocked with spices and extras well. The owner didn't miss a detail when it came to making things easy, with lights, remotes, and other labeling and operational details. We traveled along bluff tail, which is beautiful. Shell Beach was a favorite with our 3 kids, and even more spectacular along with Tide Pool Beach when the tide went out. We were able to see sea urchins, starfish, shellfish, was also able to see quite a few whale spouts from off in the distance. The community is very friendly as well, and every evening we saw deer all around, absolutely breathtaking! We will definitely be back again!!

We were very pleased with this lovely home. Bathrooms adjoining three bedrooms and an additional half-bath. House is in good condition and the kitchen is very well stocked. Close to path to the beach and a short drive to Gualala. Only slight downside is the noise from Highway 1 but not super bothersome.
Nicole C. January 2018
House is amazing. Very well stocked, store was 5 minutes away. Water was a few minutes of walking. We loved it.
The T. September 2017
We had an amazing time here! We celebrated our wedding on the 10th of August at Sea Ranch! Lots of family, lots of memories. Saw a whale for the first time and a meteor shower while in the hot tub! This house was great. We will be back!
Julianne . July 2017
We thoroughly enjoyed our four night stay at the Happy Family House! We especially appreciated the well stocked kitchen and the interesting assortment of reading material in the bookshelves throughout the house. We loved the easy access to the Bluff Trail and our dog loved the Walk-On Beach!

Thank you for providing a wonderful home for friends/family weekend! We loved the house! It was so clean and packed with everything we needed and more! We loved the deck, it was perfect for our one year old to go in and out and not have to worry. We had a great time!
