Pilot's Reach 344 Pilot's Reach, Sea Ranch, CA 95497

Perched on a hillside overlooking the Pacific, this dog-friendly Sea Ranch vacation home brings you the best in a Northern California getaway. Soak in the hot tub, have morning coffee on the deck, or explore the shore on foot - just a short drive across Highway 1.

You'll have the sense of being away from it all without being in the middle of nowhere. The small town of Gualala is about eight miles to the north and has twp groceries stores where you can stock up on necessities like wine, ice cream, and fancy cheeses. Meanwhile, the Sea Ranch Golf Links offers a diversion away from the cozy home, if you can get away! You might even find much of your time spent exploring tide pools or snapping pictures from the Bluff Trail.

The modern yet comfortable decor will inspire your imagination, while the huge amount of natural sunlight pouring through tons of big windows will inspire you to savor every moment. As your guests arrive one by one, you can greet them on the deck in one of the rocking chairs. When it gets chilly, watch the sea fog drift in and warm up in the tiled hot tub.

Head inside and find a cozy living room and relax. For the natural musicians, there's even a baby grand piano! The atmosphere is bright and contemporary and will make everyone feel right at home.

Fix a casual dinner in the bright and airy kitchen, complete with a dishwasher for easy cleanup. Talk well into the night after dessert at the picnic-style dining table, big enough to fit all six guests.

You'll likely want to curl up in bed after a full day of relaxing. At this California coastal retreat, you'll find two sunny bedrooms, each with a queen bed. One of the bedrooms has its own private sliding glass door leading out to a deck. A queen sofa sleeper is found in the living room - this home is ideal for six.

If you can't leave your dogs at home, this rental allows up to two dogs. Keep in mind that an additional pet fee applies. There's a washer and dryer to freshen up your sweater for those chilly nights.

Beyond little Gualala, Mendocino is about 57 miles to the north, where you can escape to a funky coastal town with shops and cafes. About 50 miles through rolling coastal hills to the east is Russian River Valley wine country, where you'll find tons of gorgeous stops for tasting rooms and New American cuisine in Geyserville, Simi, and Healdsburg.

Closer to home, there are woodland trails through the hillside, Twofish Baking Company is nearby for your morning latte and a number of delectable pastries, and east on Annapolis Road about six miles, you'll find Annapolis Winery. Do some tasting and then pick up a bottle for the night's dinner.

Make your next trip up the California coast a memorable one with a few friends at this Sea Ranch rental!

    Pilot's Reach is the perfect place to unplug and relax. Home is elegant, yet comfortable. Kitchen is well-equipped for cooking. There's plenty to do - hikes, swimming, games, even a piano! Hope to return there in the next year!

    We had an absolutely wonderful stay. The house we stayed in was equipped with more than we expected which made our stay stress free when it came to cooking our own breakfast,lunch and dinner. Very clean and relaxing,we would definitely stay again.

    Pilots Reach is an easy, convenient house-- it is beautifully spare without being intimidating ( items of quality mixed w a generous dose of IKEA). The radiating heat in the floors is a delight and always comfortable. The view is largely trees with a sliver of ocean. Although the house is in a neighborhood it is well secluded-- I never worried about privacy with the shades up all the time. The kitchen is well appointed and it was a pleasure to have matching dishes and silverware.

    Pilots Reach is a beautiful home. We've always stayed in homes on the Bluff in prior visits, and this was the first time we rented a hillside home. It really exceeded our expectations in every way. We had lots of wildlife visit the property - deer (with spotted fawns!), wild turkeys and even a supersized jackrabbit. The home is lovely, and the kitchen is very well equipped. I wouldn't hesitate to book this home again.

    This place was perfect for us. Clean, comfortable, beautiful, spacious, open, and quiet. It's across 1 to get to the ocean but you could still hear the water sometimes at night and you can see the ocean from the house as the house sits uphill. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking which is a nice change from some other rental houses. Hot tub was amazing. There is nothing in sea ranch as far as restaurants, coffee, or markets, but town is a short (less than 10 min) drive away. The heated pool and sauna at the center were really nice and we loved the decks and fireplace (and the piano!!!)

    We loved our 7 day stay at Pilot's Reach. It is tucked away on the forest side (east side of Hwy1) and gives you privacy that the meadow and waterfront properties do not. We had an ocean view from the upstairs rooms. The kitchen is well appointed for those that like to cook. The great room/TV area is open to the kitchen with nice leather furnishings, beautiful eclectic art. I loved the poured concrete floors upstairs and down. The enclosed hot tub was perfect for relaxing and enjoying the forest view. We had planned to rent a property on the oceanfront, but I ended up liking this much better. Lots of interconnected roads through the forest for nature hikes, dog walks, etc. We saw deer and their fawns around every turn. The two downstairs bedrooms each have their own bathroom with gorgeous walk in poured concrete showers. One has a deep soaking tub with a window to enjoy the forest view. For the tech heads- we had wifi, cable TV and unlimited long distance. Highly recommend this property.

    This is the second time we've rented Pilot's Reach. It's in a great location, has a wonderful feeling, and is tastefully furnished in a contemporary style. The kitchen is super equipped for gourmet cooking.

    This house is nice. The view is subdued but atmosphere of house location grows on you immediately. We stayed here with 4 total, but house can easily handle six. Wish we could have stayed longer.
