Great location. Set up well for guests. Beds were comfortable and kitchen had everything we needed. Clean inside.

It was perfect for two adults and our 2 teen kids. Great outdoor setup for dogs. Wonderfully peaceful and quiet. Great getaway! We did puzzles and walks and had great family time here.

Loved sitting on the upper balcony with a glimpse of the ocean and listening to the sea lions barking at night. Very clean and comfortable home within walking distance of Anchor Bay Market. Peaceful and quiet getaway. Would definitely come back!

The home was great, the mattress was fabulous. We had no soap for the dishwasher or laundry. Bought our own as the telephone # given was disconnected. Found the Lanyard so we could actually go to the beach and not pay the $3. fee per person. That should be accessible to all renters as we pay plenty for the week. Otherwise, had a good trip.

It was beautiful, had everything you could possibly need all the way down to the beach chairs in the closet. Dog blankets, rocking chairs on the back porch and sun through the windows we had a wonderful romantic weekend thank you so much!

We had an amazing spring break gatway. We loved the home and the small town of Gualala/ Anchor Bay. The house was clean and equipped with everything we needed. This is a place to relax and unplug. Our two kids can’t wait to return. We definitely plan to utilize this rental property again.

This house has a fantastic layout for a family getaway. I loved the gated yard. It really makes this dog friendly rental actually dog friendly. So nice to be able to just let dogs out without worrying about them (or having to accompany them at all times).
The kitchen is very well equipped with quality cookware, sharp knives, and plenty of dishes/glassware. We really enjoyed just hanging out on a couple rainy days, cooking, eating, and doing puzzles.
Very comfortable furniture, beds are great, and 2 full bathrooms. We really liked the floor plan too. The large open living space upstairs and the two large bedrooms downstairs make this house very comfortable.

We will definitely recommend this vacation rental and we’ll be back if we decide to stay in the area again.

The location is wonderful. The home is nestled in the trees, so you get the best of both worlds - a forrest like setting, with views of the trees and ocean! You can hear the waves crashing from the house as you relax in the evening. Surprisingly, the little store in Anchor Bay has a great selection of items, including healthy brands and even many gluten-free options.

The home was welcoming and had a very comfortable layout, with the living area on the upper level and bedrooms on the lower level. The home was very clean and was well taken care of. All of the amenities needed were present and were good shape. There is a good selection of books, which goes along with the peaceful setting of the home.

The local staff is wonderful, to say the least!

The gated area was nice for us to sit outside with our dog. The house is well furnished and has everything we needed. Nice view of the ocean and walking distance to a couple of restaurants.
Flora P. Sep 2018
This property is in a great location to explore the coast. Home is very clean, nicely furnished and well equipped. I would definitely stay here again!
B C. Sep 2018
The rooms are all spacious and bright. It was nice to walk to dinner at the Thai restaurant and to Anchor Bay beach. Not sure why it says it is Gualala because it is in Anchor Bay.

Very homey and clean. Quiet street. Beautifully decorated. Highly recommend this lovely home.
Jessamy L. Aug 2018
This home is so easy, so comfy and the perfect hang out for my family and pup. Love the gated driveway for the dog. Thanks for having us. Will definitely book again in the future

Loved that the home was comfortable and clean. Dog friendly. I didn't smell any harsh cleaning chemicals. The owners obviously care about the environment by their choices.
Mike S. Jul 2018
Wonderful home, great setting and beautiful surroundings. Will return!
Brian B. Jul 2018
House was perfect and clean. Bedrooms and living space was great. We loved that our dog could go in the gated front yard / driveway. Also loved being about a mile from town and great beaches. Will def book again next year!
Sunny D. Jul 2018
I loved this house. Very comfortable, conveniently located, clean, peaceful, functional kitchen with good utensils and plenty of things for the kids to do. I would definitely would love to came back again.
Tina B. Jun 2018
Very comfortable home and bed. Clean, nicely decorated and kitchen was well outfitted to cook, if you so desire. We loved our stay there and having a locking gate so we could let our dogs out was a big plus.
Lisa G. Jun 2018
I loved the location with all of the trees and you could see the ocean from most windows. Nice to have the BBQ on the patio.
Very comfortable. We had no cell phone service and that was fine with me, the WiFi worked good. Fun times with my kids.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Barking Seal. It is nestled in a quiet neighborhood that is nicely spaced. There is an ocean view and breeze. The drive to the beach is extremely short. I would not recommend walking for people who can't take on the hill to get back to the house. I am pregnant and in my third trimester so the climb was out of the question for me. The home is so cute and beautifully decorated. They provided tons of great seasonings and condiments in the kitchen. The house was clean and the heaters efficient. We were very comfortable and everyone in our group wished we could stay longer.
Lisa T. Apr 2018
Your house is lovely. Everything was very new, clean and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the peace and quiet. It was nice getting to walk just 2 blocks to town.
Mary H. Apr 2018
We really enjoyed staying in this home! The house has a great vibe. Whole space attractive, well done, comfortable, clean. Everything worked perfectly, and the kitchen was well outfitted. We loved that our dog was welcome. The whole family was pleased (even teens ;) The landscaping around the house is rustically beautiful, with flowering jasmine scenting the entryway. Peaceful and quiet - you can hear the surf, and yes, the barking seals in the distance :). Beautiful area. We were able to rent last minute, and hassle free. No minimum stay in this case, worked out perfectly for us. We recommend this spot, and will likely be back soon ourselves.

Perched in the Redwoods, with distant views of the ocean, in a gorgeous, home, it is so much more than a "Bungalow!" Close to everything we love along the Sonoma/Mendocino Coast, we could not have enjoyed ourselves more!! When 2 Ravens flew by the upstairs window, within a few feet of my coffee mug, we were home...
