Give yourself the gift of a stress-free trip retreat when you book your stay at this Sea Ranch seaside escape. Surrounded by a meadow filled with native flora, you'll enjoy the stunning views from your private hot tub.

A short walk puts you on the meandering Bluff Trail that run along the beautiful and peaceful California coast. Take in the sights or play a picturesque round of golf at the Sea Ranch Golf Links, just a pleasant walk away.

Hand-crafted wood accents and vaulted ceilings showcase a contemporary style that welcomes you in for relaxation. Keep up with your favorite cable shows, or make some hot popcorn for a fun movie night with your favorite DVD in front of a roaring fire.

The fully equipped kitchen has warm, hardwood cabinets and an open style, allowing the chef to still socialize as they work on the main course. Eat a quick bite at the breakfast bar, or get everyone together for a meal at the dining room table.

This two-bedroom, two-bathroom home has room for up to four guests, making this the perfect place for a couples' retreat, or a small family to enjoy. Both bedrooms boast queen-size beds allowing everyone to indulge in the peaceful night's sleep.

Reserve your tee time and enjoy a perfect day of golf at the Sea Ranch Golf Links. Just a bit north of your home, this world-class course is designed in the traditional style, paralleling the iconic courses in Scotland.

After a long day of exploring tide pools and wandering the bluff-hugging trail, indulge in a long session in your private hot tub. If you don't feel like cooking, plan a special evening at St. Orres in Gualala or pick up a pizza from Twofish Baking Company.

Fill your next ocean getaway with stunning views, gentle ocean breezes, and rounds of golf that will make life-long memories when you book your stay at this Sea Ranch home.

    Having spent summers along the Sonoma Coast, at what is now Salt Point State Park, the Gallagher Getaway brought all those wonderful memories back, and we will be back ASAP! It is now officially, our home away from home...

    this house is typical sea ranch architecture in a quiet, serene area, close to the ocean and the bluff walk. We liked it a lot. Sea Ranch is awesome!

    It was clean and tidy with good water pressure and a nice hot tub. Hot tub though has no fencing or screen and there is a public path that runs just past the home which made using the tub during the day unappealing. Not much of a view of the cliffs or the water, but there are deer and other wildlife to watch from inside the home or on the porch. There were VHS movies on the shelf, but no player of any sort. Overall no real complaints for the price of the rental. It's a nice home with plenty of space for a small group or family to enjoy.

    A nice small home by Sea Ranch standards in a good location and nice interior layout. The owner is finally doing some much needed maintenance. We hope it will continue.

    A stay at Gallagher's retreat was memorable . Quiet , charming , well appointed and everything about Sea Ranch we wanted . Set in a field surrounded by roaming deer and the ocean roar . Can't wait to return to this retreat.

    This house is a train wreck. Needs a working stove, oven, TV and major floor repair. The beds are very hard and in the smaller bedroom be prepared to have a mattresss spring poke you all night. The floors are in need of major repair. There are bugs crawling everywhere constantly. The only thing that made it worth it was the location and the trails and of course the wildlife . The grey foxes are so small and very cute just loved them.

    I have very mixed feelings about this property, as I explain below--the TLDR version is: great location, property itself is well laid out, but it is really showing its age and we also had to deal with a very unpleasant insect infestation during our stay. The photos show the property in a very flattering light, so you should know that it's not quite as pristine as it looks.

    I will say that Joann, the Vacasa property manager, did the best that she could to address our concerns given that they didn't have another property to move us to (which would have been my preference)--because of her I'd consider renting from Vacasa again, but not this property (unless it had some updates).

    The good:
    1) Beautiful location--you can see the ocean from the house, it overlooks a meadow where deer would frequently pass by (so cool for our kids!), very close to the bluff trail, not too long a drive to Gualala.
    2) Hot tub--again, great views, and seemed to be reasonably well maintained.
    3) Layout of the house was nice--one level, open living/kitchen space with nice views, reasonably sized bedrooms. Lovely bench in the living room for reading and looking at the view.
    4) Price--this is definitely one of the cheaper properties that we looked at, especially so close to the ocean, though once we got there it was clear why. I wish that we'd spent the additional money for a nicer house, but if you're on a budget, willing to put up with an older property, and they address the insect issues, I'd halfheartedly recommend it.
    5) Kitchen supplies: I actually thought the kitchen was reasonably well stocked with equipment--we brought the cast-iron frying pan and the good chef's knife that we always bring to a vacation rental, and had everything else we needed on site.

    The bad:
    1) General condition of the property: as I said the property is really showing it's age. The appliance are older than I am (and I'm no spring chicken). The fridge and stovetop worked OK, although I inquired after the oven and was told it worked but was inaccurate. The faucet in the kitchen sink was difficult to turn on and just seemed in generally bad condition. The floors have recently been replaced, but the installation doesn't seem to have been done correctly so there are spots in the second bedroom where the floor seems to be floating and moves up and down when you step on it. There's damaged drywall in a few places (near the master bedroom). The master bedroom door is inexplicably covered in masking tape.
    2) The HVAC system also leaves something to be desired--if we turned on the heat, it was roasting, but (in November) it was too cold with it off. This was especially true in the master bedroom--the wall heater doesn't seem to have a thermometer control so it's either on or off. I would wake up in the middle of the night sweating.
    3) The bathrooms were just this side of acceptable--older fixtures, a clogged drain (than was quickly fixed by management), and silverfish every morning--ugh.
    4) The beds were super uncomfortable, especially the one in the second bedroom, and the linens on them, especially the comforters, were old.
    5) The television is hilarious. (Although we think it's preferable to not use one while we're on vacation, with two young kids, sometimes we needed to!). It's ancient, tiny, and the image is a little wobbly if you play DVDs.

    The ugly:
    While we were at the property there was a serious infestation of pillbugs. While pillbugs, in small numbers, are far from the worst bug, and may even be kind of cute, it turns out that en masse they are super gross. They were on the walls, on the floors, and in the tub and shower. We would pick them off of every surface, and five minutes later we'd see more. I had to wear socks the whole time because I would inevitably step on one and at least with socks the feeling of the bug being squished was more muffled. I had trouble sleeping the first night for fear they'd crawl into the bed with me (turns out not, but they were right there waiting for me on the floor). I think I've got pillbug PTSD--every time I see a speck on the floor in my house, I have a flashback. Honestly, I could forgive the property a lot of things because of the location (and maybe some shabby charm?), but not this. Joann offered to send out an exterminator, but because we have young kids I wan't comfortable with them spraying chemicals around the perimeter. I can only assume they are going to take care of this problem, but it may be worth inquiring, especially if bugs freak you out.

    I do hope they fix the issues with the property, because it has a lot of potential and is in such a beautiful location.

    This rental is perfectly fine, especially for the price and its stellar location to the beach trails. I suspect it's one of the lesser expensive vacation rentals up here because of its size and it has most of the original fixtures of the Sea Ranch houses built in the late 60s. It brought me back to my childhood staying at my grandparents' old place up here, but that also means it's not flashy new modern like some folks might look for in a vacation home. More like old funky vintage beach modern. Likely the original electric stove. Happily, there is a new fridge, dishwasher, and microwave.
    Excellent VHS collection. :-)

    If you're looking for good value, fabulous location and don't need a spiffed up place with the latest luxury decor and furnishings, this is it!

    This house is well situated near the north end of sea ranch. Do not stay here for the kitchen, baths, or TV. Comfy furniture, great hiking, and unbelievable star gazing from the hot tub on a clear night. Short walk to the golf course. Nice tennis courts a short drive away. And the wonderful Surf Market is a short drive. I have to say that this place needs a new oven/range if you want to cook.

    As a very longtime client of Ramshead Rentals, I wondered whether Vacasa would be as helpful. I find that the whole rental procedure is, in fact, improved. A wonderful new service for finding the right house at The Sea Ranch!

    I guess we got caught in the transition between Rams Head and Vacasa. Dealing with Vacasa was less than professional and certainly less than pleasant. I've been coming to Sea Ranch for 30 years and this was the first time I wanted to pull my teeth out. Charged me for money I did not owe. Lied to us about the condition of our place. There are other property rental companies in Sea Ranch - use them!!!!! If you look at the Vacasa website they handle numerous properties and I guess they thought they'd just waltz in here to little old Sea Ranch and do whatever! Not again with me you won't!!!!!!!!!
