Dog-friendly Sea Ranch home near playground & beach w/ shared pool

This Sea Ranch vacation home offers guests dog-friendly accommodations and is close to the beach and playground, making it an ideal getaway for a family with younger children.

Situated in the heart of Sea Ranch, guests are about five miles from Gualala for grocery shopping, and about 55 miles from Mendocino. On-site, guests may enjoy a public golf course, a restaurant and gift shop in the Lodge, and access to numerous beaches. This rental, in fact, is just a short distance from Walk On Beach and Tide Pool Beach!

This 1,520 square-foot home is easy-going in its decor, with a classic lodge-feel, peaked ceilings, and plenty of nice art to admire. Windows are everywhere, maximizing the view of the surrounding swaying meadow grasses. You may even catch a glimpse of deer or foxes outside!

The living area is on the second floor so guests can fully enjoy the view and get the most light. Spread out over sofas and window seats while the stone-framed fireplace warms your toes. Though a flatscreen cable TV with a DVD player, and WiFi are provided, this is also the perfect time to unplug with a good book, a good board game, or good conversation.

Bring along your favorite recipes to recreate in this lovely kitchen, with major appliances done in black and plenty of counter space. Pop in a favorite CD for some meal ambiance as you gather in the dining room with spots for six at the table. A dishwasher helps take care of the clean-up.

This three-bedroom, two-bathroom rental can sleep six people comfortably with a king bed, a queen bed, and two twin beds. Relax in your own private meditation garden out back, which is fenced for privacy, and keep your packing light and fresh.

This is a great rental to enjoy as a family, since the One-Eyed Jack's Picnic Area and Playground is right across the street! Pack a picnic and watch your kids and family dog roll about in the grass (up to two dogs are welcome for an additional nightly fee).

The beach is just down the street for days spent admiring interesting rock formations and exploring tide pools. The Sea ranch Golf Links is a great place to spend the afternoon, with a Scottish links-style course and windswept landscaping. Dine at the the Sea Ranch Lodge and buy a sweatshirt to bring home, or spend a day hiking the bluffs and searching for pods of whales or herds of harbor seals.

Reconnect with the ones you love in this Sea Ranch getaway today!

We’ve stayed here before because it is so wonderful!
Philippa G. Sep 2019
Lovely house, gorgeous place.
Kay K. Aug 2019
Well-equipped house; very comfortable. More stairs than I was expecting but we all managed them.
Dawn M. Jul 2019
The house was perfect for getting ready for my daughter's wedding! The house was spacious and the neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. We were a close walk to the beach which was great for my German Shepherd! The property management ladies were fantastic and so helpful with my questions. Great experience all around! Thank you for a lovely stay!!!
Ricardo P. Jul 2019
The house, the location, the weather, the sights were all amazing!!! we had a few minor concerns but once that was done everything else was very enjoyable!!!

Thank you!!!
Matt S. May 2019
The home was very cozy and the decor was fun, beachy, and plentiful. There were no neighboring homes right next door, so the area was very quiet. The bluff trails were a short five minute walk away from the front door. Groceries were just a five minute drive to the north. The kitchen was well-stocked with utensils, plates, bowls, etc. I could see where more than 4 people might get crowded, even in a three bedroom place. But for smaller groups, it's an ideal home for a Sea Ranch vacation.
Kajari S. May 2019
Enjoyed our two night stay. Close to trails; well equipped kitchen. Deck is facing driveway, not ocean or meadow.
Annette I. May 2019
We had two couples, a single and a dog staying at this wonderful house, close to the beach. The interior was very comfortable and we were grateful the kitchen was so well supplied.
Peter A. Apr 2019
This house with an “upside down” plan had living area upstairs with lots of light and three bedrooms on two half levels below for good privacy. The kitchen was very workable with plenty of pots, pans, dishes, etc. The location, near One-Eyed Jack area and Walk-On Beach, was great for walking and getting into Gualala. we have stayed in a number of Sea Ranch houses, and this is one of the best. Very well maintained and supplied all around. Clearly, owners who care.
Kirk G. Mar 2019
After a year of elder medical traveling, a few days at Prentiss Retreat was just what the Doctor ordered. The views, coastal bluff trail access, endless stunning vistas, and the way the sun plays with every level of this house, all day long, were all priceless. We will be back! P.S. Loved finding Rudy Becking's Coastal Flora book on your bookshelf. Dr. Becking was my Graduate Studies Major Advisor at HSU, in the mid-70s, and endless source of inspiration, for all things natural...
Mark S. Jan 2019
We love the layout as we sleep cool and others with us like it warmer. We also like being towards the middle of the Ranch so that we can go north or south , whichever way the wind blows us. We play Bocce ball and the court is across the street. Comfortable for our old dog and a good price. We have stayed here 3 times and keep coming back for more.
Steven F. Dec 2018
Great location and the house met all our needs.
Karen R. Dec 2018
The house was incredibly well appointed and extremely peaceful. Barely a two minute walk to the coastal trail in a section of the coast that is particularly beautiful. And a seal nursery that never disappoints for wildlife viewing.
Brian W. Nov 2018
We could tell that the owners occupy this spacious house at different times of the year. The furnishings were very nice, including a good mattress in the bedroom we used. It was very well-stocked in terms of kitchen utensils and spices, the TV and soundbar/woofer made streaming a pleasure. Even small details such as two pairs of binoculars for watching wildlife and a rechargeable flashlight handy by the front door. Last, but not least, the location is great...a very short walk to the ocean trails/beach and a short drive to Gualala.
Ila P. Oct 2018
Clean and comfortable and well stocked. Great location. Would have left 5 stars, but the 2 step check-in seems unnecessary and was stressful.
Elizabeth G. Sep 2018
Everything I needed and quite peaceful. Thank you!
SHERRY A. Aug 2018
The home was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a great stay. We loved the location near trails and a community building with sauna & olympic sized pool. The beds were comfortable & there were plenty of soft towels for us. We would definitely recommend this beautiful home & would tay here again.
Wendy C. Jul 2018
Our children and grandchildren really enjoyed the accommodations.
Jeanette H. Jul 2018
We loved the wildlife only a walk away from this house. In a 24 hour period we saw two gray whales, 40 seals just a few feet away on the beach, awesome tide pools, and lots of great birds. The kids enjoyed the nearby pools as well. The washing machine and dryer and detergent were greatly appreciated since we were completing a 10 day camping trip down the coast. The beds were comfortable, we played the games and did puzzles. I loved Sea Ranch and this beach house.
Meghann B. Apr 2018
We love going to Sea Ranch and my parents had stayed at this house before. I think it's our favorite Sea Ranch house- we will definitely be back! All the comforts of home and dog friendly which we very much appreciate. The kids loved the games and puzzles and we all enjoyed the close proximity to the beach and the playground.
Thank you!
Joanna V. Apr 2018
The house itself was very clean and we loved all the beautiful art on the walls. The beds were very comfortable and the hot water was dependable. The kitchen is rustic but has everything you need. Great views and wonderful location. This home is very close to so many great spots. We love the beach at the end of the road. It is in walking distance to the seal pup preserve and the chapel.
Linda S. Apr 2018
Lovely beach house. The home was clean and comfortable. We’d definitely return in the future.
Liz C. Mar 2018
Loved cooking in this kitchen, such a lovely home. Every kitchen utensil you might ask for. There’s no central heat, which was actually better considering that the heat rises to the top floor where the living/kitchen is, there are individual heaters in each room which made the temp much more controllable. Beds are also super comfy temperpedic mattresses,with shades on every window so you can sleep in (essential)!
Willem V. Feb 2018
Spent four nights at this home and enjoyed my time with my son and his dog. We loved the location and the proximity to the two nearby beaches. The home was roomy and we loved using the fireplace every evening. We definitely will make a trip back soon.
Mark S. Jan 2018
We have stayed here before and will stay here again. We like that the main bedroom is downstairs where it is cool and the upstairs can remain warm due to the windows catching the sun. Comfortable beds (and we are light sleepers).
This is near the playground and some good beaches,
Abigail G. Jan 2018
The home was perfect for us as 6. We enjoyed the vistas from the living room with plenty of space for games and puzzles. There was a fully equipped kitchen. All was just as we had hoped.
Harriet L. Dec 2017
We would stay in this house again. It was great for a reunion of family from near and far. And we noticed that the upper part has one of the few really good views of the ocean and spectacular sunsets except for those houses right on top of the bluffs. This house is just a few hundred yards back , nicely separated from its neighbors. It is actually three levels with no bathroom on the top living/kitchen area so it isn't good for folks with limited stair mobility.
Megan E. Nov 2017
I planned a trip for myself and 4 of my closest girlfriends to get away and this was the best place for some R&R! we were all very happy and loved the cozy atomosphere.
Larry K. Nov 2017
We appreciate a Sea Ranch rental that accepts our dogs. Home is very comfortable. It is close to Walk On and Shell beaches.
We like it enough that we keep coming back.

Have stayed in several houses in Sea Ranch in the past. Vacasa gave us the best price for the same place. Another site wanted over a hundred dollars more for the same week and place with added fees. Vacasa kept us up to date with rental information into he days leading up to our vacation. They even reminded us about our rental on the day we were to start our vacation! LOL. Will be using Vasca for all future stays. We have already recommended Vacasa to friends.
Michael S. Oct 2017
Nice place to stay at Sea Ranch
Kevin S. Aug 2017
It's a nice house that met our needs. It's cozy but not small. It has everything you need. There are beautiful views from the many windows. You can see all the way to the ocean.
Noel O. Jul 2017
Great home, great location, amenities terrific! Love it as ysual!
Michael S. May 2017
Nice House
Diane H. Mar 2017
This really was the perfect house for grandma and pup, auntie, mom, dad and small child. Rooms for everyone. Nice sized living room and dining room, with beautiful ocean views; a nicely appointed kitchen; a TV & DVD player that worked; books & games available; a lovely little garden. It was also close to a playground; lots of trails just down the road; a lovely walk to tide pool beach and shell beach. Last year we had rabbits visiting in the meadow; this year it was deer every evening. We loved it!
Mark S. Feb 2017
I loved that the living area was upstairs and the bedrooms were downstairs. We like our bedrooms cold and this helped to meet our needs. The master bedroom bed we slept in was very comfortable.
Jessica W. Dec 2016
Location is spectacular. A short walk to the amazing bluff trail and close view of snoozing harbor seals. Easy drive to Gualala for supplies. Love the inverted floor plan with stunning views from huge upstairs windows. The kitchen is so well equipped I could have cooked anything. Very comfortable and relaxing. Lovely beds. I would go back ttomorrow if I could.
Janice C. Dec 2016
Our stay was a happy one thanks to great weather and a charming and clean home. Couldn't have asked for anything to be better than a sunny winter day at Sea Ranch in a wonderful home.
Timothy S. Nov 2016
We had 4 nights here and were very thankful for the property and location. Close to the beach, nice fire place. A great place to get away and unplug!
Lori I. Oct 2016
Worked well for our mini family reunion as we had rented another property that we have rented many times before(vrbo) & this was the closest rental to that property.
Steven F. Sep 2016
The home is well taken care of and it is obvious the owner has a love of great art work and ambience. We had a lovely time and enjoyed the sunset from the kitchen while eating dinner. The trails are great and the complex is very charming. The owner deserves credit for making such a welcoming home for guests.
Elizabeth G. Jul 2016
Wonderful experience, would book again!
Christie W. Jun 2016
This house is perfect location for kids. Very close to the playground and beach. We loved relaxing on the balcony. Beautiful ocean view from dining area. Master bedroom bed very comfortable. House has everything you need!
Teresa N. Jun 2016
The Prentiss house is comfortable, the kitchen well-stocked with most everything you need to cook a great meal, or bake a pie or cookies. Just a few minutes walk to a spectacular beach. We saw whales, sea lions, fox, and deer and many kinds of birds. Living area is upstairs, so if you don't like carrying all your stuff up to the second floor, keep this in mind. Nice wood burning fireplace.
Bill B. Apr 2016
We have stayed in various homes at Sea Ranch for over 35 years. Each experience has been wonderful. Accommodations are always clean, private, check in /check out times are great, rental staff always helpful and friendly..
