Bowsprit Retreat 63 Bowsprit Close, Sea Ranch, CA 95497

Wake up each morning to the soothing sound of ocean waves when you escape to this three-bedroom Sea Ranch home, a dog-friendly property with a private hot tub, an expansive ocean-facing deck, and a stunning waterfront location.

Gorgeously situated to face the Pacific Ocean and the wondrous rugged cliffs of The Sea Ranch, this beautiful home is just steps from the Bluff Trail and one mile north of Black Point and the Sea Ranch Lodge. It's also only eight miles south of the Sea Ranch Golf Links, nine miles from the shops and restaurants of Gualala, and 28 miles from the Point Arena Lighthouse and Museum.

Wonderfully located near wild ocean beaches and quiet hiking trails, this property is ideal for groups of friends, families, and outdoor enthusiasts in search of gorgeous scenery and serene relaxation.

With paneled walls, hardwood floors, and soft leather furnishings, the living room is full of rustic atmosphere and plush comfort. Build a fire in the wood-burning stove as you watch the morning fog blanket the ocean, or use the telescope to search for passing grey whales, harbor seals, and dolphins.

The panoramic ocean views continue in the full kitchen, which features a large refrigerator, plentiful counterspace, and a dishwasher to take care of the clean-up. Sip your morning coffee by the window at the kitchen table, or share pancakes and bacon with your loved ones around the dining room table for six.

But nowhere are the views more magnificent than on the large ocean-facing deck, where guests can relax in Adirondack chairs, use the gas grill to prepare al fresco meals, and soak their sore hiking legs in the luxurious private hot tub.

With three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and one half-bath, Bowsprit can accommodate as many as six people on your Sonoma County getaway. The master bedroom features a king-size bed, a wall of windows that frame the ocean, and a large flatscreen cable TV and DVD player. The two guest bedrooms offer a queen-size bed apiece.

One dog is also more than welcome to join you here - please be advised, however, that a small nightly fee applies.

After a day spent admiring the seasonal waterfall on Stengel Beach or exploring the tide pools of Shell Beach, you'll have a private washer and dryer for your salty clothes.

As one of the most understated and beautiful stretches of the Northern California Coast, Sea Ranch is a wonderful place to escape into nature. Walk among the local black-tailed deer as you hike the Bluff Trail, or play 18 scenic holes amid the cypress and pines at the Sea Ranch Golf Links.

This home is also just 58 miles south of Mendocino - the perfect day trip for those in search of a majestic coastal drive along California Highway 1.

The beauty of the Sea Ranch can be all yours - reserve your stay at this peaceful three-bedroom home today!

    We loved 63 Bowsprit Close: perched pretty close to the bluff, the 3-bedroom property is not immaculate, some furnishings are tuckered, could use some replacements in the kitchen -- but, what the heck. It was like home but better. We wanted a week at Sea Ranch to relax and unwind from a crazy year. And we are imperfect and perfectly happy with imperfection that comes close to perfection. Just what we needed. Loved the hot tub. The vast and inhospitable/hospitable Pacific in front of us; the trails; the vista of runners, dog walkers, families, making their way on the bluff trail. Super. we did that too. It's a very nice property. Would love to stay their again.

    Our rental through VACASA was an exceptional vacation at Bowsprit Retreat. The check-in and check-out was easy (except couldn't find the office). Beautiful property and location.

    We've stayed in many Sea Ranch homes and this is by far the best! Close to the bluffs and great views. Right off the trail, but still private.

    Nice house, very quiet with beautiful views of the ocean from most rooms in the house. Hot tub and wood burning stove were added benefits and added to the overall relaxing experience.

    Bowsprit is a great old Sea Ranch home that provides a wonderful escape for a couple or family with a dog. Views are spectacular from living room and master bedroom. Large deck to watch the sun set and a hot tub to watch the moon rise. Easy walk to recreation center with pool and tennis court, to restaurant/bar at Sea Ranch lodge, to Black Point beach and to observe the seals sunning at the Marine Wildlife Preserve. Bowsprit House needs some updating but is very comfortable and has lots of privacy for a dog and kids. We will be back!

    We loved this house! Our vacation here was absolutely wonderful. We greatly enjoyed the private outdoor patio, ocean/sunset view hot tub, proximity to the bluff and ocean (walking out the back door to the cliff edge with coffee in hand first thing in the am in my pjs was surreal and amazing), extensive hiking trails, well stocked kitchen, picture windows. awesome master bedroom, hearing the ocean day and night, beautiful front garden, and more. The pictures do not do justice to this amazing house- it seems to be one of the closest to the bluff edge in this neighborhood. The rec center was also great with their heated pool and sauna- wish we had more time to use it! The beach is down a steep cliff and not accessible from here, but a short 8 minute walk away.
    The cons:
    -Wifi network name and password were incorrect on multiple documents they gave us. One of our guests needed to work a little while staying here, so that could have been problematic, but we were able to get that info off of the router.
    -To check in and out, we had to drive into the town 10 miles away at the rental office. This amounted to 40 miles there and back total. This was compounded by a sign in the rental that said to checkout by simply leaving your keys in a lockbox, which would have been much more convenient.
    -Rental company did not promptly return our calls about beach chairs, which there were supposed to be three of (we never found them).
    -Some very minor things were broken in the house, like the medicine cabinet and a glass. Normal wear and tear stuff.
    -Not anyone's fault, but it is windy on that bluff! Luckily there is plenty of enclosed space to block the wind.
    -We had to pay $30 per room to have sheets on the beds. A bit steep.
    Overall, we just needed a little better and more accurate communication from the rental company. Other than that the house is awesome!

    Bowsprit it a very nice, clean home. Its big enough that our family of 4 (2 large teenage boys) had plenty of space. The kitchen was well equipped. And really, the house is right on the bluff at the south end of sea ranch, just minutes from Black Point beach.. They do allow 1 dog which is nice so you don't have to leave your furry family member behind! The only issue we had was the rental agency dealing with a broken hot tub. Stopped working the second day of stay and being a holiday weekend, they were unable to fix it and we had no hot tub for the last 2 days, which was a huge bummer as the hot tub had a great view. It was a last minute reservation for us. I think next time we go back we'll book well in advance and do some more research. But its a great family, pet friendly home that has an excellent view and its a comfortable.
