Drink your morning cup of coffee while sitting out on this vacation home's private deck as you watch the ocean waves. Walk down to the shore and comb the rocky and sandy beaches, or explore tide pools. Go a few rounds at Sea Ranch Golf Links, or head nine miles to the Gualala River for kayaking or canoeing.

    Wonderful location! The view is amazing!! Very quiet area with great trails that lead to the beaches. Over all we really enjoyed our stay. Our family loved watching the sunset from the back deck while enjoying a cup of tea. The home is a little old and could use some updating but no major complaints. Our kids enjoyed the board games and bunk beds. We saw deer each day and a small fox ran through once. NOTE to parents of little ones: The stairs inside have a huge gap between railings- which means we had to move some furniture and police the bottom of the stair rail. They do provide a gate for the bottom of that stairs which works. However, with the wide gaps on the side of the stairs it is easy to crawl up or fall from anywhere- second floor or second step. Sea Ranch is a beautiful place- we will be back to stay in the area again!!

    Gorgeous little house. Great decoration and amenities. Beds were absolutely horrendous, unfortunately no good sleep was had. Wonderful if you are traveling with pets and great walks accessible right from the house!

    Thayer House is a lovely getaway. The view was beautiful and the walk to the beach short and easy. The kitchen is very fully equipped which was important as we had a gourmet cook in our group. The house was very clean and comfortable.

    Second time in this same house. The best is as nice as ever (views, walks along the bluffs), but management needs to take better care of the property in terms of cleanliness and maintenance.

    We'd come back again, with our fingers crossed that it's in better condition next time.

    Thayer house has an unobstructed (almost) view of the ocean. The living room has large windows where you can enjoy the ocean waves crashing on the bluff all day and night. Its relaxing! The location is perfect.
    BUT- the furnishing are VERY old - 1940's or before kind of old...the kitchen tools are dated to the point of almost not working. Please bring your own items if you plan on making meals. The beds are very very uncomfortable so those with a bad back beware. The shower upstairs is painful because the shower head was missing. Also check with staff before assuming all items are stocked.

    The house location, the distance with the beach. The architectural design, we enjoyed every detail, be sure that you will understand that was build at the the seventy s and keep it as the original way

    Great place for our "working vacation." Our pup loved it too. The view was incredible and we loved the easy access to so many awesome hikes. And what felt like a "private" beach a ten minute walk away from the back door. All so memorable. We'll be back!

    The privacy, peace and quiet, and easy access to the scenic beach, makes this a good value. The house was clean (just a bit dusty). If you are looking for a modern accomodation, this is not for you. It is obviously an older interior with lots of decor "left behind" by owner. More like staying in an Airbnb rather than a vacation rental. Not bad but not impressive. The scenery is the winner here. Unobstructed ocean from view across a lovely meadow.

    Lovely views from the comfortable living, dining, kitchen area. Large picture windows and deck provide an unobstructed view of the ocean from a beautiful meadow often occupied by deer and fox. Even though the furnishings and decor are quite dated (and downright musty), we can definitely see staying here again due to the views, price, and pet friendly policy.
