With a private hot tub and the ocean close at hand, this pretty Sea Ranch home is the Northern California getaway that you've been waiting for.

Bahari House (formerly known as Noyes Retreat) is located in the north part of Sea Ranch by Shell Beach, this rental is about five miles from the town of Gualala, where you'll be able to pick up groceries, and about 55 miles from Mendocino for outdoor adventures like hiking and kayaking. The Sea Ranch Golf Links is about a couple of miles away from this rental, and the beach is within easy walking distance.

Beamed, peaked ceilings and ample windows with partial ocean views give the space an airy feel. Laid-back, classic Sea Ranch decor keeps the focus on your vacation while providing comfort to all.

The living space has plenty of seating options for guests to spread out, whether you're looking to put your feet up on the sofa or on a window seat. Beat those chilly Northern California nights with the wood stove. You are never without entertainment here - WiFi, cable, and a DVD/VCR are provided.

The kitchen is a grand space with enough room for multiple cooks to roll up their sleeves and get to work. Spread meals out buffet style on the counter, and set up a coffee bar or cocktail-making station at the separate wet bar on the other side of the dining room! Dine at the table for eight - there's plenty of extra chairs, including a high-chair. Dirty dishes don't stand a chance with the dishwasher.

Head out to the enclosed deck for a soak in the hot tub, or to admire the view of the ocean off in the distance.

This is a four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom home with enough room for up to eight guests, perfect for a large family or two smaller families traveling together. Two of the bedrooms have queen beds for the adults, and the other two rooms have sets of twin bunk beds for the kids. This home also comes with a washer/dryer for light packing and a carefree mind.

This rental is conveniently located close to Shell Beach and One-Eyed Jack's Picnic Area and Playground. Pack your favorite sandwiches and kites for days spent outside on the grass or exploring tide pools. Families with older children may enjoy hikes and bird watching nearby.

Golfers will want to set some time aside to visit the Sea Ranch Golf Links and dine out in Gualala, there are a handful of eateries including Trinks Cafe. Bring bikes to pedal around the community, or simply pick a sunny spot on your deck or by the window with a good book.

Our family has stayed at this house many times in the past. We love the location and the layout of the house. This summer the upgrades (new beds, couches, dishwasher....) were a welcome surprise for all of us. As always, we had a wonderful time staying at this house, thank you for sharing it with us. We plan to return again soon.

Bahari House is everything and more. Views. Walks. Riding bikes. Hot tubbing. Morning coffee watching the waves crash and smelling the salty sea breeze. House was fully stocked with all the family (2 adults, 2 kids 5 and 12) needed for a great long weekend. Enjoy!
Richard O. Apr 2020
The home is located close to a She’ll Beach! Great location. Bahari House is nicely set up for families.

We loved the hot tub and the magnificent view of the ocean. The house was comfortable and had a great upstairs space for our family to hang out together. The furnishings / decor are a little old and outdated and we had some small issues with appliances (e.g., the dishwasher is missing a cover for the soap dish) but that didn't bother us when we were soaking up the wonderful views and hiking around the nearby trails. Overall, we loved our stay, and would happily come back!
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Maya! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We will work to identify areas for improvement throughout the home. We look forward to hosting you again!

We were very happy with this home! The location was absolutely perfect -- just a short walk to Shell Beach. The home was well equipped, clean, and very comfortable. We look forward to staying here again.
April D. Jul 2019
The house was great! Walking distance to a beach, wild life and trails to explore everywhere. Town was close so if we needed anything it was just a short drive. Very content with the visit.
Allan M. Jul 2019
This home is within walking distance of the children’s play structure, Tide Pool Beach and Shell Beach. It is a superb view of the ocean from upstairs and also from its large porch. It is roomy with four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Two bedrooms have queen beds, and the other two have bunk beds. The bedrooms with queen beds each also have a desk and desk chair. The bunk bed rooms have only the beds in them. The upstairs area had a large table which could accommodate a number of people and lots of seating in the living area. The house was clean and very functional, although it could use a bit of up-dating.

We had a great trip. Our family all enjoyed the house. And can’t wait to come back next year.
Christine G. Sep 2018
We loved the location and the bedrooms worked well for 6 adults and 2 2year olds. Its not updated decorator wise but very functional and easy to cook in and eat and gather in the main room. Great ocean view and access.Would definitely rent again!

Beach and trail just a short 2-5 mins walk away. Clean. Good set up for two families.

Great view, wonderful layout of the house. House was very clean. Had all the amenities and supplies you could realistically expect. Bring your own DVDs and books if that's your thing. Nice little grocery story 5 minutes up the road (but expect tourist prices).

Only negative whatsoever was the next door neighbor who rudely demanded we move our car further up the driveway so we didn't "block his view". Acted like he'd never interacted with a human before.
Joseph A. Jul 2018
We enjoyed the setting and the view from the House. The perfect size of the house and the Location.
Karen L. Jun 2018
We've stayed at this house several times over the years, and as usual, the view from the balcony is great and the proximity to the beach just right.
Leslie W. Feb 2018
We rented 2 homes close together and had our whole family at Sea Ranch at one long weekend! All was good!
Jessica C. Jan 2018
Great house for groups and kids. Sleeps 8+ and decent sized kitchen for cooking up a big meal for the group. The house is steps away from Shell Beach and trails up and down The Sea Ranch community. Hot tub on the deck is a nice plus.
Shawn H. Nov 2017
This was a great house. Lots of room for a large group. Everything was clean and in working condition. Super close to the beach. Hot tub was hot and clean.
Marlene B. Oct 2017
A lovely warm home . All necessities provided to make it an easy vacation.
Steve C. Oct 2017
We stayed here as two families with small children. The bedroom setup is very good for this, with two bedrooms with bunk beds and two bedrooms with queen beds. Each set of 2 bedrooms (queen and bunks) share a bathroom and can be closed off. The entryway downstairs is a nice place to store shoes and beach stuff, but otherwise isn't functional.

The location is really the selling point, as we've stayed at other houses in the general area and walked or drove to Shell Beach. The house is directly across from the parking lot with great views of the water from upstairs and also the downstairs deck.

The hot tub was in great condition and hot upon arrival, and the kids loved spending time with us there. The kitchen is fairly well equiped with pots, pans, dishes, etc. The knives are not really useful for preparing group meals. It'd be nice to have 1-2 larger chef's knives, even if they are cheaper Target ones. No barbeque at the house which would also be a nice addition.

Overall I would definitely recommend the house for a mixed group of adults and kids. Perfect for 2 families with kids to share. The location and views are what make the house.

Only a few minutes walk away from Shell Beach. Ideal location
Angelina S. Jul 2017
Made many new memories with the family at this location. Close to the beach and pinic playground area.
Stuart O. Jul 2017
Location was great, main reason why we come here. Vacasa is helpful, but maintenance is beginning to slip.
Jennifer K. Jul 2017
Highly recommend this house for two families looking for a perfect location for hanging out, enjoying the north coast and relaxing. Loved being able to walk to great beaches and tidepooling. Loved how close Gualala was for the market and great restaurants. Loved the layout of the house. Loved the spa and the outdoor shower (with warm water!) Highly recommend.
Joseph A. Jun 2017
The Wild Life the Beach and the Fishing was the perfect solution to our busy schedules.
Our Sibling Retreat was a success as usual.
Natalie S. Feb 2017
Had a wonderful time at the Noyes Sea Ranch house with several of our friends in celebration of my partner's birthday. The location is ideal, close to beach, quiet, not too close to other houses and easy to pick up the trails that snake over the road leading to waterfalls and other natural wonders. We were quite impressed with the diversity of nature packed into such a small area, including lots of harbor seals at the tidal pools next to Shell Beach. The house itself has a nice layout, very open with lots of windows. Furnishings are a little worn, but comfortable. Lighting could be improved, very harsh - like being under a bunch of spotlights. However, the hot tub was superb. It stayed hot hot hot all night long. Would stay here again or try another house in the area.

Perfect get away, except for the hot tub
Victoria C. Dec 2016
Great Location for us. Near my parent's house, Shell Beach and the playground.
George D. Oct 2016
We enjoy Sea Ranch every time we come
Cynthia K. Oct 2016
Nice place to stay.
D. C. Oct 2016
Great location! Great view!
Peggy S. Oct 2016
Enjoyed our stay at Sea Ranch - it was very relaxing. Home is very close to the beach so our little ones could easily walk there. We got beautiful sun and lovely rain! Home was clean and comfortable. Some of the kitchen appliances and utensils are a little old and bedding could be newer. Overall very nice for our family and kids to stay. Thanks.
Richard L. Sep 2016
We will return as soon as we can!
Sandra G. Aug 2016
we were a family of seven with 5 adults and 2 children. House accommodated us very well and was clean. Is conveniently located to at least three beaches with tide pools and seal watching. We walked the trails. Played at One-Eyed Jack's, visited the TSA swimming pools, visited the chapel. We highly recommend the Vacasa service and the home. No reservations in our comments.
Marian P. Aug 2016
loved having 2 separate suites of bedrooms for our grown son and family. It was great having the high chair provided. We enjoyed the hot tub and we all loved the proximity to the beach.
Karen L. Jun 2016
We've stayed in the Noyes house several times and enjoy the proximity to the beach as well as the view from the balcony. The neighbor however, has been working on his house for two years in a row now, and the quiet we expect was once again broken by the awful noise of a power saw starting quite early and continuing off and on throughout the day for the entire week. We also didn't know that work would be done on lines (water? cable?) and left just in time for the crews who arrived to dig in front of the property. Would have been more professional to let guests know so that they can decide whether to come or not.
Gurina K. Jun 2016
We had a wonderful trip at Noyes retreat. My two year old loved digging in the sand and seeing seals. We all enjoyed the walking paths and swimming in the rec center. My husband and I liked soaking in the hot tub in the evening and watching the stars. My son loved seeing deer all over. Walking distance to the playground was great too. Sea Ranch is a great family spot!
Joseph A. Jun 2016
This Home is and has always been Perfect for my Family and I. I have been coming here for many many years and will continue to do so.
Celine P. May 2016
The layout of Noyes is perfect for two families, though the house is a bit more rustic than others we've stayed in -- linoleum and carpet instead of hardwood floors. The outdoor hot shower next to the hot tub is fantastic for getting the sand off the kids, and the location is great to walk to Shell Beach (our two-year-olds walked the whole way). Another downside is no BBQ, but we BBQ'd at One-Eyed Jack's playground which is just blocks away.
