Nothing rejuvenates you quite like the sea, and this lovely Northern California vacation rental will make you feel pampered with distant ocean views and a private soaking tub. The calming space is perfect for groups of six (one dog included), and offers and intimate coastal setting for relaxation or outdoor adventure.
The gorgeous home is surrounded by hillside trees and located in the Sea Ranch community which boasts beaches, a shared pool, a golf course, and three recreation centers. Gualala is about an eight-mile drive north and the Sea Ranch Lodge and beaches are just a quick drive across Highway 1.
Sea Garden is intimate and casual, featuring wood floors, large windows that welcome in the sunshine, and mid-century decor touches. Award-winning architect Obie Bowman designed the space around a great room which opens to the kitchen, dining room, and family room.
There’s never a bad seat in the house thanks to window bay seating and a cozy couch and rattan furniture looking out at the sea. Plan a family movie night on cable or DVD, or enjoy good conversation while curled up around the RAIS Danish woodstove. By nightfall, you may even see shooting starts from the clerestory windows!
The beauty of this charming Sea Ranch vacation rental is you have a full kitchen to spoil guests with home made fare! Whip up family favorites with help from modern appliances like a gas range stove, then leave the cleanup to the dishwasher! When the weather is sunny gather around the patio bistro table.
Outside is simply stunning, offering a beautiful private garden and calming views of the ocean. Sunbathe or read in privacy on one of two decks, one with distant ocean views. Bring a floppy sun hat and book for a quiet afternoon outdoors, or make gourmet hamburgers and cocktails for a barbecue on the gas grill. A shaded bistro table offers shelter from the sun and the soaking tub is blanketed by blossoming greenery, making it an intimate space to soak by nightfall.
Sea Garden comfortably sleeps six guests and offers two bedrooms, two full baths, and one-half bath. A laundry room will keep active gear and towels clean for extended stays.
