Audubon House 287 Bluff Reach, Sea Ranch, CA 95497

Behold the magnificent ocean and meadow views of the Sea Ranch when you escape to this beautiful two-bedroom home, a spacious and dog-friendly retreat that offers an ocean-facing deck, a private tree-lined patio and hot tub, and wonderful access to nearby beaches and trails.

Conveniently located five miles south of Gualala's restaurants, art galleries, and grocery stores, this two-level home is scenically situated on the ocean side of California Highway 1. You'll be just steps from the Bluff Trail that runs between Black Point and Gualala Point Regional Park, less than one mile from the tide pools of Shell Beach, and less than two miles from Walk On Beach.

Thanks to both an open living area and private sleeping quarters, this home is ideal for couples' vacations and family getaways to one of the most stunning stretches of the Northern California Coast.

The interior living area was thoughtfully placed on the second floor, allowing guests to enjoy sweeping views at every turn. Read an engrossing novel from the comfort of the leather sofa, or keep warm by the wood-burning fireplace as you watch for whale spouts on the water.

With granite countertops, a stainless steel refrigerator, and a dishwasher for your convenience, the full kitchen provides ample space to prepare meals. You'll find plenty of seating around the dining room table, as well as a flatscreen cable TV and DVD player in the living room for after-dinner movie nights.

But why eat indoors when you have a spectacular outdoor deck that overlooks the ocean and meadow? Prepare fresh local seafood on the gas grill, enjoy evening meals around the patio table, and watch the spectacular sunset as you share a bottle of local Pinot Noir.

The tree-lined patio offers guests a wonderful sense of privacy, and is the perfect place to soak in the hot tub or let your dogs stretch their legs. Please be advised, however, that there is a two-dog maximum and a small additional pet fee applies.

With two private bedroom suites located on the ground floor, Audubon can comfortably accommodate as many as four guests. Each of the two sunlit bedrooms has a king-size bed, lofty ceilings, and an en suite full bathroom. There is one additional half-bath for guests to use as well.

And as you spend your days jogging along the Bluff Trail or strolling the length of Walk On Beach, you'll always have a private washer and dryer to come home to, as well as WiFi for your added convenience.

Whether you're hoping to explore the great Northern California outdoors or planning a weekend of quiet relaxation, Sea Ranch manages to offer it all. You can watch passing grey whales, harbor seals, and California sea lions from the nearby Bluff Trail, or head less than four miles north to play 18 holes at the Sea Ranch Golf Links.

Guests can also explore this majestic region by car, as the 54-mile stretch of Highway 1 north to Mendocino is one of the loveliest drives in the state.

Once you arrive, you won't ever want to leave! Book your unforgettable Sea Ranch vacation home today.

    We really enjoyed the Aubudon House. It is spacious and the upstairs view down the coast to the south is fantastic. The kitchen was one of the best equipped we've seen at Sea Ranch. It is a little walk to the bluff trail. It is only a 1/2 mile drive to Shell Beach. A raccoon entered through a small torn screen one night and enjoyed all of our hot dog buns. So this critter comes over with each new renter to see if you might have left that small low window open off the patio. I suspect that the owners will replace the screen. But if you rent Audubon, make sure that all five, not just four of those small windows are closed over night. Otherwise a perfect rental home.

    Beautiful spot for the house with lovely view down the coast. Easy access to bluff trail and walk to Shell Beach. We've stayed in many homes at Sea Ranch and this one was nicely furnished and comfortable. The 4 stars are a reflection of: missing a hair dryer, the lighting very dim, oven did not work and downstairs heating difficult to control (we were there in February). We had a lovely time at Sea Ranch, as always, and these things will no doubt be addressed.

    We stayed here for a week in October and really enjoyed the house except for a problem with leakage around one of the windows in the living room. It was an annoyance only when it was just overcast and or intermittently raining, but was a huge problem with a downpour on the Sunday morning we left. Rain coming in the living room covered a portion of the hardwood floor, wet the coffee table and got the leather chairs wet. Definitely needs to be fixed and I would specifically ask about that repair before renting.
    Assuming the repair of the window gets done, the house couldn't be better. The view is lovely, the house is attractively decorated, the beds are great, the bathrooms up to date and the kitchen is very well supplied for cooks. My sister and I enjoy cooking and we were very pleased with the pots, pans, utensils, knives and dishes.

    Beautiful location with great view of the ocean. It is set back a nice distance, with a fenced yard. We loved our stay and Joann of VACA addressed all needs we had. The trails and beach's are easily accessible. Nice, quiet property without view obstructions.
