We had the best week at the Rolling Waves -- it was cozy, clean, and perfectly fit our family of 5. The view and location can't be beat. We will definitely be back!

We have rented this home 3 times already, and will continue to do so! It's a great location, and the layout of the home is ideal for 2 couples. There are 2 separate "master" suites (bedroom with their own bathroom), which is rare in a SR property, and hence why we continue to rent here.
The living area is great, with lovely views of the water. The public path is far enough away that you don't have people walking in front of the home all the time. It's close to the beach. We get deer, bunnies, and quails randomly in the yard (yay!). It's peaceful and quiet, just what we want from this.
The cons are that there are some things that need repairing. The windows do not work, and when the sun is hot, you want the airflow - but they're not slider windows, they're the kind that push out (why they did this I have no idea) and so with the crazy wind, it seems like they're going to be ripped off or ram back into the house, so it doesn't feel safe to open them (the center one is really the only one "openable", but it's broken; the other two are right behind the vertical blinds so when open, the blinds go nuts and slap/slam constantly). A couple of the sliding doors are not really functional, either, and screens are missing. The whole place could do with some basic updating (the faucets are all backwards, too).
That said, it is clean and the location is incredible! The hot tub has a nice view of the night sky and of the ocean, and is clean and well maintained. We are definitely going to continue renting this place!
Manager response:

This is a dream vacation rental. The house is architecturally stunning and sits right on a bluff overlooking the wild Pacific. The beds are super comfortable & the kitchen is extremely well-equipped; it made our stay during a wild and stormy winter weekend absolutely perfect. Already looking forward to coming back!

My family thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing week in Sea Ranch at this lovely home! Its large, central living area is ideal for gathering the whole family by the fire. The bedrooms are fairly secluded, allowing for privacy. The home's location in central Sea Ranch is nice for access to bluff trail both to the north and the south.

Great views, nice kitchen with killer view, beautiful location, lots of space -- its a great place. Also, Joanne, the property manager was absolutely fantastic -- she was there whenever we needed a bit of assistance and went above the call of duty to ensure our hot tub got fixed over the holiday week.

Are you in need of the sweeping coastal views? Crisp, clean, natural air with the abundance of negative ions which restore and promote your well-being? Of being captured by the perfect sunset? Then look no further than Sonoma's The Sea Ranch.

During what was truly a memorable experience for our party of four, the space we rented, 271 Walk On Beach, provided us with the comfort and serenity we sought after. The kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms were well-maintained, immaculately clean, and bountifully stocked with all of the essentials. The floor plan is beautiful and the furniture had us feeling as if we're floating on clouds. The TV comes with Netflix and the WiFi is reliable and efficient.
Outdoors, we saw deer, hawks, owls, and hare; while the flora, rich and expansive with saplings, sugar pine, Monterey cypress, a leathery grape fern, milk thistle, and water parsley add a Celtic forest touch. We made every moment count with a full, two-day sojourn so as to explore The Sea Ranch's landscape with free curiosity and awe.
We make our trips to The Sea Ranch quarterly, and we can hardly wait until our next visit. In the meanwhile, we're telling all our good friends about it. We recommend this community to couples and small groups, alike.

Loved that the kitchen was very well stocked with everything I needed to cook!
Loved the upstairs bedroom the most. Opening the window at night brought in the wonderful breeze as I slept soundly and I could hear the waves as soon as I woke up! So peaceful!
Loved the bookshelves everywhere! My hubby found a book he couldn't put down!
It was an easy walk to the beach every day!!!
The only minor problem was the blinds in the dining area were sticking and difficult to open and close!
But I still give this home a five star. My family all agreed that this was the best home we've stayed in at Sea Ranch for 6 people, and we've been coming to Sea Ranch almost every year since year 2000! Considering its layout, closeness to the beach and its amenities.
Our time was very short but we'll certainly go back!
