Ascona House 36553 Sculpture Point Dr, Sea Ranch, CA 95497

Watch for passing harbor seals and grey whales from the comfort of this two-bedroom Sea Ranch home, a peaceful seaside retreat that offers wonderful beach access, a private covered hot tub, and two decks from which to enjoy the sweeping ocean and meadow views.

This two-level home is scenically situated on the ocean side of California Highway 1, less than eight miles south of Gualala's art galleries, grocery stores, and restaurants. It's also just a five-minute walk from the Bluff Trail and Pebble Beach, a short walk from Smuggler's Cove and the Sea Ranch Marine Preserve/Seal Sanctuary, less than two miles south of Stengel Beach, and three miles from the fascinating tide pools and rock formations of Shell Beach.

Whether you're planning a relaxing family vacation or a quiet getaway with friends, this Sea Ranch home offers comfort, a beautiful design, and ocean views from nearly every room.

With hardwood floors, lofty cathedral ceilings, and large windows that face the water, the second-floor living space is full of warmth and sunlight. Curl up with a novel on one of the plush sofas, sit by the cozy gas fireplace as you observe the local black-tailed deer, or gather your friends for movie night in front of the satellite cable TV and DVD/Blu-ray player. Choose from an extensive library of over 140 DVD/Blu-ray movies, or stream your favorite shows on Netflix and Amazon. The built-in, six-speaker surround sound system can connect to multiple devices, including an electronic keyboard!

Flip on the stereo system as you prepare meals in the full kitchen, which offers plentiful cabinet space for your groceries. Enjoy breakfast with family and friends around the open dining room table for six, and feel free to relax as the dishwasher takes care of the plates.

Take a soothing soak in the covered hot tub, enjoying the misty coastal views before the morning fog retreats. And when the afternoon sun is shining, head upstairs to the second deck to cook fresh seafood and steaks on the gas grill.

With two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and one half-bath, Ascona can accommodate as many as six guests on your Sea Ranch vacation. The two bedrooms are located on the ground floor, each offering a California king-size bed, a window seat, and an en-suite full bathroom.

Upstairs, you'll find a wonderful alcove that can be curtained off from the living room, featuring an extra large twin-size bed and trundle by the window.

And even if you come home from the beach covered in salt and sand, this home offers a private washer and dryer, for your convenience.

Although an unforgettable Sea Ranch vacation can easily be spent in the warmth of your hot tub or in the comfort of your living room, you'll find some of the region's most beautiful landscapes just outside your door. Walk along the majestic Bluff Top Trail to reach Walk On Beach four miles north, dive near Pebble Beach, or hop in the car to play a scenic round of golf at the Sea Ranch Golf Links just six miles away. Swimming pools and tennis courts are also available at the Sea Ranch Del Mar, Ohlson, and Moonraker Recreation Centers.

Care to see a bit more of California Highway 1? The spectacular Point Arena Lighthouse and Museum is just 26 miles north, and is especially beautiful in the late afternoon light.

Come and experience the magic of Sea Ranch for yourself - this serenely beautiful home will treat you to the best of the Northern California Coast!

    Do you want to have an astounding and almost endless view of one of the prettiest pieces of the California Coastline from just the right distance and perspective? Come to the Amazingly appointed and fabulously built Ascona mini mansion at Sea Ranch on the north Coast. You will not be disappointed. Bring layers as the coastal weather can be surprisingly varied. Whether you like to hunker down in luxury or hike every trail available from Coast to Ridge top, do not hesitate; Make your reservations early as sometimes they disappear rather rapidly!

    A wonderfully designed and very comfortable house. The high meadow site has an ocean view above other homes. Loved the view, window seats, covered spa and very comfortable beds. Altho two couples shared the house, the bedrooms had good privacy. Thanks for the TV, but we never turned it on.

    This is our second time staying at the Ascona house - the house is perched high enough to get this incredible view of the water. I find myself mesmerized by the waves. You can easily hop on the trail and go for a walk - either way is gorgeous! The house amenities are really nice - great pots, pans, utensils. We will definitely be back!

    We loved our stay at this home! The house is beautiful and very comfortable. The views are amazing! My husband was a big fan of the surround sound system, which was very nice! It rained the whole week we were there, so the movie collection was appreciated!

    My advice to anyone going to stay at this home or any other Vacasa home at Sea Ranch is to bring your own sheets and towels. The sheets and towels were standard white and likely provided by Vacasa as a general staple for all their vacation homes. The bed sheets were scratchy like they had been bleached way too many times and they provided only 4 bath towels. We had 6 people staying in the house, so 4 towels was a problem. There's also a hot tub, so bringing extra towels for that would be advisable. There were 2 dish rags in the kitchen, and a few more would have been nice. Also, they only had king size blankets for the twin size bed in the alcove upstairs. I still gave the property 5 stars, as I think that problem is more with Vacasa than the home itself.

    My parents, boyfriend, and I spent Christmas at this house and had such a great time! The views from living room, bedrooms, and hot tub are so beautiful... just like, if not better, the pictures! It was so calming to look out onto the ocean and the path alongside it seems endless and so gorgeous. The bedrooms downstairs are comfortable and private (from each other and the rest of the house). The king size beds are super comfortable! The house was clean and the living room was so spacious... we brought some extra candles to make the space feel even cozier. The fireplace is a nice touch (wish it was wood burning!) and the kitchen has almost everything you'll need (only thing missing were some serving platters). The view from the hot tub was breathtaking and a perfect place to relax any time of the day or night! I super recommend this house!

    it was our first time using Vacasa and we were very pleased with the company, but less pleased with Ascona. One bedroom in the house was very cold, while the other was overly warm. The overall atmosphere was not welcoming. We have been renting in Sea Ranch for years and would have rented our favorite, but it was not available, so based on reviews decided to try Ascona. We will not come back to this house.

    It has been some time since my last trip to Sea Ranch. This house was perfect! There was a view of the ocean from every room throughout the house. Sitting in the spa at night and watching the stars was priceless. This was my girlfriends first trip to Sea Ranch and she couldn't believe how beautiful it was. We will definitely be coming back in the near future!

    This home is just lovely. Impeccably clean and well organized, yet incredibly comfortable. it is obvious that the owners take such great care and attention to the experience of their guests. The view is just breathtaking, I felt that the photos on the website do not do justice to the view!! Beds and linens extremely comfortable. So appreciated that we did not need to bring our bed linens and make beds on arrival. Kitchen is just wonderful, every possible piece of kitchenware you could need along with all of the usual large and small appliances. Everything is newish and modern, down to the high tech toaster. The coffee makers has so many buttons, just a little TOO high tech for me! Overall a great experience, would most definitely return to this home.

    Great house!
    I was disappointed that the hot tub didn't get warm or function correctly and that the Gas's fireplace didn't wrk at all. Also, it was presented that it was beachfront but it's about a quarter mile away to get to the beach. Photos should be updated! Lots of other houses around it.

    Beautiful home, and the location was perfect. Vacasa could do more to improve their customer service. Housekeeping was knocking at the door at 11:30am letting us know it was time to go. We felt rushed and hurried. Not the feeling we were looking for considering the home, location and expense.
