A private hot tub, shared pool, & amazing views await at the dog-friendly home

Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Sea Ranch at this plush and comfortable three-bedroom home, where you'll enjoy a private outdoor patio with a hot tub, ocean and meadow views, and a wonderful location just steps from Pebble Beach.

This dog-friendly retreat is ideally situated on the ocean side of California Highway 1, where families and groups of friends will find easy access to beaches, trails, and gorgeous vistas. It's also just two miles north of Black Point, six miles south of the Sea Ranch Golf Links, and seven miles south of the restaurants, grocery stores, and art galleries of downtown Gualala.

Whether you're planning a cozy winter getaway or a summer excursion along the Northern California Coast, this home offers classic Sea Ranch architecture and a private cul-de-sac setting within steps of the Bluff Trail.

With hardwood floors, lofty ceilings, and a wall of windows that frame the patio, the living space is bright, casual, and comfortable. Return home from a brisk morning walk to build a fire in the natural stone fireplace, read a magazine on the sectional sofa, or watch a movie on the flatscreen cable TV and DVD player.

Turn on the stereo system as you prepare appetizers and homemade meals in the full kitchen, which features stainless steel appliances, abundant cabinet space, and even a dishwasher to help clean up. The indoor dining table has seating for four, while the outdoor picnic table offers lovely meadow and ocean views.

Sip your coffee each morning on the patio, where you can relax in an Adirondack chair, sunbathe in a lounger, or watch for passing black-tailed deer. As many as two dogs are welcome to join you at this house, but please note that a small additional fee applies.

Each evening, you'll also have an unrivaled view of the stars from the luxurious private hot tub.

With three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, Captain's Cabin can comfortably accommodate as many as six guests. One of the sunlit bedrooms has a king-size bed, while the other two rooms have a queen-size bed apiece.

And whether you spend your days strolling the Bluff Trail or watching the waves crash at Pebble Beach, you'll rest easy knowing that you have a private washer and dryer for your outdoor clothes.

As one of the most serene and peaceful stretches of the Northern California Coast, Sea Ranch is a place to reconnect with your loved ones and your natural surroundings. Take a scenic hike three miles north to Shell Beach, which features some of the most fascinating tide pools in the region, or play a beautiful round of golf at the oceanfront Sea Ranch Golf Links. Swimming pools and tennis courts are also available at the Sea Ranch Del Mar, Ohlson, and Moonraker Recreation Centers.

Care to take a thrilling coastal drive for the day? Head 24 miles south to the Fort Ross Vineyard & Winery in Jenner, where you can sip coastal Pinot Noir in a stunning mountaintop tasting room.

We have stayed at several Sea Ranch, Vacasa homes and The Captain's Cabin is on our repeat list! The location is unsurpassed with privacy as well as superior beach access and the home is cozy, clean, and has everything you could think of needing. By far, the most well-stocked of all the homes we've stayed in. Beds are good, towels, sheets, and blankets are good condition and there is plenty of firewood. We will be returning soon! Thank you Vacasa for another great vacation rental!

Beautiful home in a beautiful setting

The views, proximity to the beach, wildlife, no crowds, quiet.

First of all, they used a lot of wide angle shots with the camera, as the house is much smaller than it appears in the photos. The kitchen needs attention and hasn’t been updated since the 70s. The kitchen sink had a severe leak that had clearly been there for quite some time. Vacasa did get someone out to fix it the morning after I called them about it, but it’s not great to have to deal with that on vacation. With the severity of the leak, it’s clear that the cleaners should have known about it prior to our arrival. The dishwasher did not get the dishes clean, so most of the dishes in the cupboards were dirty and needed to be rewashed. My husband is pretty handy and noticed that the sprayers were clogged. He cleaned many of them out to get it working better, and we had to buy liquid soap since it didn’t have enough power to dissolve what was in the house. Despite all of that, we had a very relaxing time. The beds were comfortable. The hot tub was hot. The location is amazing, with gorgeous views out all the windows, and it feels relatively private. The house is cutely decorated and feels like it was well-loved at one time, but whoever owns this home doesn’t spend much time here anymore. It is a cute place that just needs a bit more TLC.

Home is well appointed, anything and everything you will need. (We did bring a small Keurig). Home is perfect for 2 couples, The location is what I was most impressed with. You walk out the door to ocean and trails; One of the closest homes to Beach access. We had a blast and will definitely return.
Mark H. Feb 2019
The weather was cold and rainy. The fireplace was warm and the hot tub wonderful. Great proximity to the water. Well equipped kitchen, nice views. We were just two but the dining table wouldn't work for more than four.
LeeAnne H. Jan 2019
Lovely setting with huge fireplace and hot tub tucked away on the patio. Would work well for couples or family. One house away from Pebble Beach. Baths and Kitchen are functional and well maintained. Private location and patio. Lovely art and natural found objects. Extensive library.
Andrea D. Dec 2018
We loved the yard with the flagstone patio and hot tub overlooking the ocean. We loved that you could walk to the beach or bluffs in 2 minutes! We loved the linens and the comfy rooms and the stocked kitchen.
jan Z. Oct 2018
The privacy, view, and I could take my 2 dogs. Doesn’t get better than that!
Kevin S. Sep 2018
Beautiful ocean view with short walk to beach.
Beds were very comfy. Nice theme decor with whales seashells etc.
Everything you need for your vacation.
Nanci B. Sep 2018
Very comfortable lodging in a perfect location at Sea Ranch, close to beach and the oceanside trail.
Ryan G. Sep 2018
Loved our stay here, with the private patio for enjoying peaceful ocean views and sitting in the hot tub, as well as great kitchen for cooking and living room for hanging out! Also appreciated the washer & dryer. Would definitely come back.
Ellen P. Jul 2018
Loved the location, layout of the house, patio and hot tub perfect for star-gazing. Dog friendly a plus.
Carol B. Jun 2018
A quiet, peaceful, and comfortable home. We liked the layout which gave us privacy for each of our 2 people staying there. Trails are almost out the front door which we loved as nothing beats the bluff trails! While the view (mostly meadow) from the living area was very pretty, I had hoped for more of a water view from the main area of the house.
Judy S. May 2018
This property worked out well for 2 couples and was situated in a quiet community. House was exactly as advertised and had all the coveniences of home with well appointed kitchen, laundry and TV, that we never turned on. Was peaceful to get unplugged from that. Hot tub was set up and ready to go.
Enjoyed our stay.
Rebecca L. May 2018
We enjoyed the proximity to the water and nature trails. Perfect place for some family fun.
Jennifer R. Apr 2018
Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teens) had a wonderful, peaceful vacation at this home which met all of our expectations, plus more! We grilled in the backyard and watched the sunset from our kitchen and backyard...the kids were able to run down to the beach just a few steps away...the layout allowed the kids to have fun in their own "wing"... and we were able to host guests for dinner with the great pull out dining table and beautiful dishes. We'll definitely stay again on our next visit!
Michele And Jim F. Mar 2018
Captains Cabin is wonderfully located at Sea Ranch—-just steps from the Bluff Trail and Pebble Beach. The house is well designed for two couples or a family with doors that can close off areas, and the common areas are nice. The patio is sheltered from view from the Bluff Trail; a stand of trees blocks views of the neighbors.
Most of the house is on one level—2 steps down to the master bedroom area, and 6 steps up to another bedroom with it’s own bath—-a plus at Sea Ranch where many houses are 2 stories.
This is a great place and we are planning to come again!
Barbara D. Feb 2018
We have stayed in this home so often, we think of it as our "almost" second home. So close to the beach and complete with roaming deer, we love this place!
Renee C. Jan 2018
Home well situated, easy stroll to trails. The layout of the house is perfect for families, nice room separation. Large patio and grassy area, overall a good experience.
Celia H. Jan 2018
A very nice home. Very inviting and comfortable. Amazing views from the property and very close to the beach. It was quiet and it felt very private and peaceful. The hot tub under the stars was perfect.
Doreen S. Jan 2018
We try to come up from the Bay Area every year. It’s our little escape from the hectic pace of life we have. The beauty and peacefulness is well worth the drive.
Margaret M. Jan 2018
Perfect location if you love long, beautiful walks along the bluff and quick access to beaches. Very comfortable house all around. We loved the excellent fireplace - thank you for providing firewood. Hot tub was lovely, too.
Terry L. Dec 2017
The house was just ok.. Beds were uncomfortable, and not enough blankets for the cold weather. But outside was nice, and the kitchen had everything we needed for some wonderful meals with the family.
Ken Z. Aug 2017
This property is perfect for anyone looking to relax. The floor plan is wonderfully thought out. Spacious living/dining area. Hot tub is great on chilly nights.
Sebastian C. Aug 2017
There are so many vacation rentals in Sea Ranch, but this one had a few great advantages. First, it was steps from a beach. Second, the quality of the furnishings and kitchen equipment was quite good (i.e. there were decent pots and pans and knives that actually cut). Third, it has good decor and a hot tub! We had a great stay, and the price was very reasonable.
Kristi T. Jul 2017
We had a fun relaxing stay in Sea Ranch. The rental was as described and we had a wonderfully peaceful stay.
Ian M. Jul 2017
My family and I had an amazing time. Trails, pool, beaches, general beauty of the area including Sea Ranch are second to none. We'll be back.
Nicole B. Jun 2017
Sea Ranch is an incredible, beautiful place with beautiful, oceanfront views and deer everywhere. The trails are well maintained...BUT if the lack of housekeeping in this unit is indicative of the way Vacasa maintains its other rentals....STAY CLEAR. Pet hair and dead flies covered the floors in several rooms, hoards of dead gnats in the bathtub. Leaky bathroom sink, missing vertical blinds and several dusty surfaces....not cool for the price paid. Sadly, this unit is very well located and has a perfect yard set up...much more private than other homes in the area. Incredible wildlife and star viewing. I would return in a heartbeat if the housekeeping issues were resolved.
Laura S. Jun 2017
I have stayed in several Sea Ranch homes, and Captain's Cabin has been my favorite so far. It was super clean, the kitchen had everything you need including a view. No need to bring books, games or DVD's because there are plenty from which to choose within the house. I particularly liked the design of the deck and hot tub area. Even though it is open with a view out to one of the hiking trails and the ocean, you are sheltered from the wind and nearby homes for privacy. Very quiet property.
Tyler B. Jun 2017
This property was amazing. There are beautiful views from every window and a private hot tub area from which you can see the ocean. The house is quirky, a bit on the older side, as many houses are in sea ranch. Plenty of space, plenty of necessities (dishes, appliances, etc.). There was a big fire place with wood provided to burn. Just steps away from the beach and a walking trail along the coast. Extremely relaxing weekend at a beautiful property. Would recommend to anyone.
Charlie L. May 2017
This house was perfectly situated for families. Well-designed home given the relatively small space. We especially enjoyed the views from every room, cozy fireplace, hot tub, and outdoor area. Steps down to the beach were literally next to the home! We would definitely come back!
Katharine M. Mar 2017
This is a great house for a laid-back Sea Ranch vacation. The views are lovely, the patio is perfect for sitting out in the sun (and shielded pretty well from the wind), and the fireplace is huge and gorgeous. The house isn't huge or fancy, but it had everything we needed for our group of 5 to be comfortable during our week away.
Marianne B. Oct 2016
I have stayed at many of the Sea Ranch cabins, but the Captains Cabin was by far the most secluded giving us privacy, but close enough to view others enjoying their walks on the bluff trail.
Karen W. Sep 2016
Sea Ranch is a very special place and Vacasa made the rental of this property very easy.
Sharon S. Aug 2016
We had a wonderful stay at this Sea Ranch home. The unobstructed view of the meadow and ocean was a delight from the patio and master bedroom. Also view of the ocean in the kitchen. The ocean is a nearby walk. The patio was great to enjoy breakfast lunch and dinner. A cozy cabin with a kitchen that has all that you need for a great stay at Sea Ranch. The fireplace was great as well! Thanks so much!!
Kyla R. Jun 2016
The house was wonderful. The location perfect! We will return next year and stay longer.
Kendra R. Jun 2016
We felt very luck to have found Captain's Cabin... it was incredibly peaceful with ocean views from virtually every room, tons of privacy and light. The house is nicely laid out for a small family with teens or two couples +. Ideal for a relaxing trip spent walking the bluff trail or walking directly down to a beautiful beach cove.
David W. Jun 2016
Great spot.
Nancy F. Jun 2016
This house is in a very desirable area and close to the bluff trail. The beds are good and there is plenty of cooking equipment, including food processor, blender and coffee maker. The outside of the property is well designed and offers a great view of the meadow and the ocean.
Randy C. May 2016
it was fine
