We had a wonderful time is this beautiful home. We had two young kids and we thoroughly enjoyed trips to the beach and relaxing in the hot tub! Mattresses were all very comfortable and everything we needed was provided. We had a wonderful time and look forward to going back again soon!
Christine N. Sep 2020
It’s hard to find a good place for our family of 5 so we really enjoyed this house. Great view of the sea from the house and the hot tub. We wish we could have stayed longer! A little disappointed by the late check in and early check out but would definitely want to return.
Barbara P. Jul 2020
well appointed kitchen, super location, beautiful views and a great hot tub... what could you want more? oh - nice clean bathrooms, comfortable beds and a great washer & dryer too !
Kristopher J. Jul 2020
A beautiful house with everything you need. Will definitely stay there again!

I recently had the pleasure of staying at Rainbow's End with my wife and 2 young daughters (ages 6 & 9). It was the perfect getaway experience for us. The home was spacious, clean, and very attractively designed. The fixtures and appliances were high quality and thoughtfully placed. The large windows filled the home with cheerful sunlight and provided a very nice view of the ocean. We had everything we needed to sleep, cook, clean, relax, play, and much more. We absolutely loved the hot tub and the nearby beaches and hiking trails. We also drove to see several local attractions, including a car safari and the Redwood forests. Overall, we made some wonderful family memories and we look forward to coming back again. Highly recommend!!!

Cute house with fun hot tub and nice view. Upstairs rooms are perfect for sure footed kids, but not little toddlers due to the stairs. House had everything we needed and great location. We will visit again!!
John B. Feb 2020
Loved the remodel of the house
Diane B. Dec 2019
We've rented many houses in Sea Ranch over the years and this one is just okay, nothing special. Location is okay, not terrific. Seems like there was a recent upgrade on interior but one dining chair literally falling apart. Kitchen is woefully under-equipped and what's there has very much a cast-off vibe.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Diane. We are sorry that you did not find the kitchen better equipped and that one of the dining chairs was falling apart. We are passing along this information to our local staff to make sure this gets taken care of. We apologize for these issues but do appreicate your feedback so we can improve for our future guests.

I agree with most of the comments. Super clean because it is recently remodeled. Kitchen is lovely to work in with kitchen aid appliances that function very well. Bathrooms are very nicely done. Only things to be aware of are: very close to the road so traffic noise is present on weekday mornings especially if the windows are open and upstairs bedrooms each have one small single bed that is accessed via a narrow winding staircase that would be potentially risky in the night. Overall recommend this home highly as clean, well designed and very comfortable.
Milton G. Aug 2019
Love the deck to set on and view the ocean.
Arun R. Jul 2019
It’s a lovely home with a nice hot tub great view and good location. Close to the beaches and also the Moonraker club with the pool and tennis court. Was just remodeled so updated kitchen and nice master with bathroom. Perfect for 5 to 6 people if you double up in the two bedrooms and have 2 others for the singles. Only downside was lack of items in kitchen such as large salad and other serving bowls. But outside of this minor inconvenience, we loved it and had a wonderful time.
Peter K. Dec 2018
Very nice
Amy P. Mar 2018
This was a great spot for us. It's tucked away but still has ocean views. The hot tub is lovely and the house is comfortable for guests. Great beds and nice to have multiple bathrooms.
Tobias D. Feb 2018
This house is comfortable for a unperturbed stay: breakfast at the terrace with the first sunbeams in the morning, a long walk along the beach, a great cooking in the fully equipped kitchen, dinner in the cozy living room and a relaxing in the hot tub with sunset and afterwards the view at the sky full of stars. It’s perfect.
Jennifer C. Jan 2018
Lovely spot-great hot tub!
James J. Jan 2018
My husband and I stayed for three days. The home is perfect for two people because the second bath downstairs is small and may not work with two couples. The living area is small but cozy and very comfortable...great seating, wood stove, expansive views of the ocean. The hot tub was wonderful on a rainy night. In good weather, the deck would be delightful. Overall, we had a wonderful time and would come back.
Alicyn C. Jan 2018
Functional and well located and pet friendly. Would stay again.
Amit S. Dec 2017
As promised - beautiful views in an amazing location. The hot tub alone was worth it on a clear night!
Madelyn W. Nov 2017
It's a beautiful place to stay, the sunset we got to see was incredible! My husband and I brought our dog, McNab/Queensland, but we wouldn't bring her back. The herd of turkeys and no way to contain her on the deck meant she was trapped inside most of the time. Other than that, the house was well equipped, everything was clean, and the views were nice.
John B. Nov 2017
no thanks
Susan R. Oct 2017
Lots of privacy and great large size hot tub
Sanjay P. Oct 2017
Comfortable house with a great view. Really enjoyed the hot tub and the deck.
Duwayne S. Oct 2017
House was very livable felt like home
Beds nice and firm some thought they would be too hard to sleep on but all slept better than they imagined.
Amelia K. Oct 2017
My partner and I stayed here this past weekend and it was so relaxing! Wifi was a bit spotty, but nothing we were too concerned . The hot tub was huge and provided a lovely ocean view. We'd definitely stay here again!
Mary R. Oct 2017
Once again, we've enjoyed a fabulous vacation at lovely Rainbow's End. We keep coming back to this cute little house. It's perfect for our family and we will be back again soon!
Sandra L. Oct 2017
My friends and I spent a very relaxin and peaceful weekend at this home. It was the perfect size for three people and had a great view of the ocean. The open floor plan was great. We would love to stay here again.
Chuck P. Aug 2017
Thanks. Highly recommended for small family or group. Beautiful views everywhere. Amazing Wi-Fi. Better than home.
Mariana H. Aug 2017
Perfect for two couples with a couple of kids. The living area is very cozy. The deck is wonderful.
Gino G. Jul 2017
Great view and easy access to Lodge.

Jay E. Jul 2017
The problem is that the house is a little close to the road and in traffic noise can be heard. The hot tub has a fountain drip that is very annoying. It does however cover the sound of the traffic so just shut it down or take it off mat alter the peacefulness of the experience in the other way.
The ice cube maker in the refrigerator doesn't work
Scott N. Jun 2017
nice location in southern part of Sea Ranch in meadow -- very well-designed mid-1970s house in the Sea Ranch style -- great light -- good separation between bedrooms -- good for kids with 2 small bedrooms up -- interior fairly worn and dated... kitchen short of stuff a serious cook might need -- but overall good value.
Italo D. Jun 2017
We where there for a whole week, we like it a lot and the Jacuzzi was great
Cathy S. Jun 2017
We had a wonderful stay the walks were wonderful
Peter S. May 2017
If advertised as a 4 BR home, is misleading. 2 BR's upstairs are actually a loft divided into 2 BR's, each with room only for a twin bed, good for 1 kid. The house is best for 2-4 people total; 2 good BR's downstairs, a kitchen and smallish livingroom. But for the size it is, it's a pleasant cozy classic Sea Ranch style home.
Peter S. May 2017
Nothing to not like about any time spent in this beautiful place. Hands down, the prettiest spot on the California Coast...
Jessamyn C. Mar 2017
Definitely casual with a small informal kitchen. The home has a deck with white deck chairs, huge hot tub with ocean views, medium sized living room, two moderate sized downstairs bedrooms and two tiny upstairs bedrooms. Great value for the price and location. Served our purposes well. Construction nearby right now which makes it less peaceful than the average sea ranch location.
Faith P. Jan 2017
Please note that even though this house had some problems such as not thorough cleaning, fixtures, pests like ants on counter while trying to fix something to eat, drink. Or even wash hands, the beds were comfortable, we had hot showers. Our cell phones did not have any service, and we did not know that we could have used the house phone to call the office, it did fill our party of 6. We ,friends and family do love area and will continue to stay and visit.
MICHAEL M. Nov 2016
Very comfortable home with a great Jacuzzi. Great location too. The only downside is the age of the kitchen and furnishings. For the price you can't go wrong.
Matthias A. Oct 2016
Loved the beach view
Richard N. Oct 2016
We liked this house, which could use a little updating and a bathroom upstairs. But those things did not deter us from enjoying the house, which was clean and comfortable. You can walk to the coastal path in minutes, and down to the beach, too. It was quiet and we enjoyed quail in the front yard and the ocean view.
Shannon S. Oct 2016
The house was great for what we were looking for. It is clearly dated in decor and upgrades however, for the price and solitude it was just fine. bring kindling with if you intend to use the fireplace (which is the only way to heat the main living area) as anything on the grounds is too damp to light. The hot tub was amazing during the chilly evenings!
Cheryl K. Oct 2016
Comfortable small house with stairs.
Pateicia F. Aug 2016
Even after all the ups and down during our stay at the sea ranch, i have to invite my family back again next year so they can feel the peacefulness i felt when i stayed their for the first time in April 2014.
Barbara R. Aug 2016
Nice quiet place...saw a deer two days in a row...the hot tub was excellent. the only drawback I felt was the bathroom in the master bedroom was small.
Gail F. Aug 2016
It was a nice, older home which was comfortable and just fine for our needs. The house is located in the southern end of Sea Ranch so is a about 10 miles from town and a little distance from some of the beaches, etc. We just drove to parking areas to access beaches and trails. I would recommend this house to others.
Sally S. Jul 2016
Loved are stay at the Rainbow House! Very relaxing nice view of the ocean and nice easy path to get down to it. The jacuzzi is wonderful,clean great temp. We will be going back soon!!
Mary R. Jun 2016
We stayed for 10 days at Rainbow's End and loved every bit of it. The home is very comfortable and in a great location near the Lodge, Two Fish Bakery and the Moonraker recreation center. The hot tub was perfect! This is our second stay at Rainbow's End but it won't be our last--we can't wait to come again.
Wendy O. May 2016
Our stay at Rainbow's End was wonderful! The house is very well situated with easy access to the coastal trails. The house is very cozy and the hot tub and views from the deck are fantastic. Since the house has so many bedrooms, it's ideal for couples with kids or multiple singles.
Nick W. May 2016
Spent a lot of time in the hot-tub... great addition, looking out at the ocean from the tub...
Peter S. Apr 2016
Sea Ranch is great...
