Ocean Star 41230 Leeward Road, Sea Ranch, CA 95497

Enjoy a Sea Ranch vacation full of family fun at this charming two-bedroom home, a dog-friendly retreat that offers a private deck and hot tub, foosball and air hockey tables, and close proximity to coastal trails, golf, and the Del Mar Recreation Center.

This meadow property is wonderfully located on the ocean side of California Highway 1, just blocks from the Del Mar Meadow Trail and the seaside Bluff Top Trail. It's also only half a mile from the Sea Ranch Golf Links and the outdoor pool and tennis courts at the Del Mar Recreation Center, two miles north of Walk On Beach, and less than three miles south of downtown Gualala.

Whether you're planning a vacation with friends or family, this single-level home offers lovely ocean views and endless entertainment for guests of all ages.

The nautical theme begins in the living room, which features soft leather furnishings and a wall of windows that face the water. Begin each morning by building a fire in the stone fireplace (wood is even provided), or peer through the telescope to observe passing whales, deer, and foxes.

After a scenic day of hiking on the Bluff Top Trail, return home to a flatscreen cable TV, DVD player, VCR, and a selection of VHS and DVD titles for quiet evenings in. More competitive guests will also find air hockey and foosball tables in the living room, creating a fun and festive atmosphere at all times.

Prepare breakfast each morning in the full kitchen, which offers richly hued cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and plenty of space to prepare your Surf Market ingredients. Turn on the sound dock as you gather around the dining room table for four, and feel free to linger as the dishwasher cleans up.

When the sun is shining on the Northern California Coast, head outside to find a deck, patio seating, and even a private hot tub for your ultimate relaxation. You can also walk half a mile to the Del Mar Recreation Center, where you'll have access to an outdoor heated pool, tennis courts, and saunas.

With two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, this home can accommodate seven guests, although it is more ideally furnished for six. The master suite has lofty ceilings, a queen-size bed, a flatscreen cable TV, and a private bathroom with a jet tub and shower. The guest room features a twin bed and a set of twin-over-queen bunkbeds.

And although Sea Ranch is known as a place to unplug, Ocean Star offers the modern conveniences of WiFi, central air conditioning, and a private washer/dryer. Your family dog is also welcome to join you, but please note that a small additional fee will apply.

As one of the hidden jewels of California, Sea Ranch is beloved for its unspoiled landscapes, plentiful wildlife, and awe-inspiring beaches and trails. Spend a morning three miles south at Shell Beach, where the receding waves reveal a series of tide pools filled with sea life. You'll also be just one mile south of Gualala Point Regional Park, where visitors can often spot migrating whales offshore.

In the mood for a breathtaking coastal drive? Follow California Highway 1 north for 21 miles to reach the Point Arena Lighthouse and Museum, the gorgeous structure that guards the Point Arena-Stornetta unit of the California Coastal National Monument.

It's time to begin a new family tradition - this wonderful Sea Ranch home will be a favorite for years to come!

    We loved the deer and fox who crossed in front of the windows several times! It was a short walk to the ocean bluffs and to the local pool. The kids didn't quite have the stamina to walk to the nearest beach and back, so we did some one-way shuttles and everyone was happy. The house was a perfect place to land between adventures, and had plenty for everyone on a rainy day too. We lit the fireplace and got cozy.

    I hadn't been to sea ranch in over 15 years. I was a special trip I could share again and revisit old childhood memories with my girlfriend. We loved every day there and plan to make it a yearly vacation spot for us.

    We stayed at Ocean Star for the first time in December, 2016 after many years of visiting Sea Ranch and renting many different homes. We we overall very happy with the experience here, and i would recommend it: I think this home is perfect for a young family, as they have it set up with video games all ready to go, and fusbol and air hockey tables that worked great: so if you want something to keep the kids busy, this is it. Also, it sits back from the ocean a bit but still has a great view - it's right on the street, perfect if you are bringing bikes to ride. Great hot tub but no view - but, it's protected from the wind and very private. Everything went very well for our first stay in this house, it's definitely worth a look! Patrick R.

    We had our 10 and 12 year old kids with us for the 5 days spent here. The house was great with the family (and especially the kids) really enjoying the hot tubs. We also loved having the foosball and air hockey. It rained one of the days and those indoor activities worked out really well. We will definitely look to rent the house again.

    This house is very nice and well furnished. The kitchen is large and a pleasure to cook in and the way it flows straight into the living area makes for a pleasant group experience where the chefs can be a part of the fun while the rest of the group plays games, chats, or watches a movie. The one thing to be aware of is that this house is a bit on the smaller side. Have a look at the virtual tour to make sure it will accommodate your needs. It still worked out great for our party of 6, but it was a bit cozier than some other houses I have stayed at at Sea Ranch.

    We have stayed in houses around Sea ranch for 20 years. You can tell the owners care about and visit the property. Nice details throughout the house. Some key fixes need to be addressed which I communicated via online feedback. As if feb 2017, the wood provided was not seasoned so it took a lot of work to burn. I would consider staying here again if they address the issues we encountered.

    This house is the perfect, cozy spot to take in all that the West Coast has to offer. Beautiful Pacific Ocean views, all sorts of wildlife to watch including whales and sea lions, and great food and people. Such a serene and majestic place to rejuvenate.

    The oceans to her house is good for family with children. The number of occupants for the house is listed at seven, but unless you are traveling with adults who like to sleep in bunkbeds or in a queen size bed under a bunk bed or on the couch, the house is really more suitable for two adults. Also bring your own reading lamps or prepare to rearrange the furniture to improvise reading lamps in the living room. Strong points of this house are the kitchen, the view, and the access to trails and to shopping in Gualala.

    This was my family's first time in Sea Ranch, and we couldn't have been happier with rental. While you can see the ocean from the front porch, it's only a short walk to the hiking trail along the coast, which is beautiful. The house is also only a short drive to food and shopping in Gualala or the Del Mar Rec Center where you can enjoy the pool.

    My kids especially enjoyed the air hockey/foosball tables and DVD library, and my husband and I enjoyed stargazing at night in the hot tub. To top off the experience, we were finally able to take our dog with us on vacation, and she enjoyed walks on the coast followed by naps under the air hockey table. ;)

    This was our second stay at Ocean Star. We just love this house so much. It is clean and cozy. It's perfect if you are looking for some serenity and quality family time. In the past we were able to deal directly with the owners, who are wonderful, I wish that we could still do that. I did not find Vacasa very helpful and would rather not use them again.

    This home is the perfect beach getaway! All of the pictures are completely accurate except the house is actually better in person. The owners have thought of every detail. The beds are unbelievably comfortable. The jacuzzi is fantastic and at night you can see a million stars while relaxing either one of the decks. Ocean trail access is only a few steps further than across the street where you can see lazy seals hanging out on the rocks. We had deer and fox greet us through the living room windows every morning. The community is very friendly. I would comment that you may want to bring groceries as the shopping is slightly limited (hours). There are two grocery stores and a couple of restaurants - all of which are very busy. Also, the internet is a hit and miss at the house although if you walk right across the street to the trail, it's perfect. We highly recommend this Sea Ranch home and will return again soon.

    We had a wonderful three-night stay at Ocean Star, July 17-20 2016. The seven of us covered the age gamut: me, a 60ish grandmother; my mid-30s son and daughter-in-law; three kids (8, 5 and 2.5) and my college-student nephew, 23. The ocean view was a constant delight -- and about a 10-minute walk to the shoreline and crashing surf. We were visited frequently by a doe and fawn, and our last morning we watched a sleek fox hunting in the front yard. The kitchen was well equipped. Nice master bedroom and wonderful master bath for a couple, and all the kids and I slept fine in the other bedroom. Beds were comfortable, too! College kid on the couch. Everybody loved the air hockey, foosball, and hot tub. We went tidepooling at Shell Beach, and also enjoyed the Sea Ranch tennis courts and swimming pool. But bring your Sea Ranch passes -- they're attached to the parking pass. You'll need them.

    Go to Trinks in Gualala for wonderful breakfasts, lunches, coffee and pastries.

    The one big drawback for us was the very bad WIFI setup. For some reason, the owner intentionally has blocked lots of the internet, including Gmail and Facebook. Since our AT&T smartphones didn't work, either, we were kind of stuck. Trinks has WIFI or you can sit in the parking lot at Surf Market and pick up a signal. Also, the DVR didn't work -- we played movies for the kids on the Xbox.

    All in all, though, a wonderful experience, lots of fun, and very relaxing.

    Pros: Great location,close to Gualala, lovely deer and fox and raccoons. Divine master bath and the master bed was comfy

    Cons: Kitchen is not as well stocked (i.e.: no salad spinner, etc), and overall the screensand air hockey table were in disrepair. Not as clean in the kitchen, Living or bedrooms as I expected.

    Good for families with active kids

    Staying at the house was a refreshing and relaxing North coast experience. Soaking in the hot tub was perfect. The view from the deck beyond the meadow to the ocean even included a fox.
