Whitewater Retreat 36859 Green Cove Dr, Sea Ranch, CA 95497

Spend time at this Sea Ranch bluff home and you may never want to leave! Up to six guests can relax and take in gorgeous ocean views from the deck and many picture windows inside. There's even a hot tub tucked away behind a privacy panel for a leisurely soak at the end of the day.

Located between Smuggler's Cove to the south and Stengel Beach to the north, this three-bedroom home is well-situated. Take a walk on the Bluff Trail for even more stunning views as you make your way down to the beach or follow through the hedgerow for forested views. Mendocino is just over 50 miles to the north and charming Gualala is about seven miles away for groceries or a meal out.

The open floor plan inside is light and bright with wood accents, while a wall of windows let the outside in. On chilly evenings create a mood and warmth with a fire in the wood-burning fireplace and music on the stereo, while you settle back and watch a Blu-ray, DVD, or cable on the flatscreen TV. There's WiFi, so bring along that camera and post some ocean shots!

The kitchen is stocked with major appliances, so after you pick up some groceries at Surf Market in Gualala, you can come back and prepare a feast. The dining table has spots for all six guests and you'll be able to enjoy dinner with a view.

The deck is a great retreat for sunny afternoon barbecues. Alternately, escape to the courtyard garden and enjoy the hot tub.

After a full day, choose one of the three bedrooms for a good night's sleep. The master has a queen bed and its own attached bathroom, a TV with a DVD player, and more lovely ocean views. The two other bedrooms each have their own queen bed and share a bathroom. This Whitewater Retreat is ideal for up to six guests.

The Sea Ranch offers an opportunity to get away from it all and relax. Meander along the Bluff Trail, walk through the Monarch Glen Trail, or spend time looking for abalone shells and exploring tide polls along the mix of rocky and sandy beaches.

Point Arena and its lighthouse is about 20 miles from your door and while in town, you can also catch a movie at the Arena Theater and then finish up the day with something interesting and tasty at the cash-only Uneda Eat. Other day trips can include a hike through the Gualala Point Regional Park or an afternoon of wine tasting at the Annapolis Winery, about nine miles east.

However you spend your time, this charming Northern California Coast vacation home offers great amenities, wonderful views, and the perfect home base for your Sea Ranch adventure!

    It's great to wake up and to see and hear the ocean right out your door. And then go down to the bluffs and see the seals. And then watch the sun set at night. With nothing but nature.

    The location is a nice one hour walk from the lodge and a short 20 min walk to one of the rec centers. I really liked the size and layout of the space inside the home. The living room is very comfortable and it was great to watch the sunset from the window. Everything was clean and tidy.

    We stayed at the Whitewater Retreat House which is close to the shoreline with wonderful views. Out weather was perfect; a few showers the first morning, but then cleared up to be sunny and beautiful the remaining days. Home is comfortable and well equipped.

    The view from this home is amazing and we really enjoyed the outdoor patio! We loved waking up in the master bedroom to see the view of the ocean from the large window. The house is cozy and we really enjoyed the spa. The living room furnishings and some of the cookware could use updating. I have stayed at the house many times and will most likely stay again.

    Enjoyable stay. We saw deer, hawks, herons and seals – but, sadly, no whales :-( In fact, we didn't realize how close we would be to seal activity (the headland directly in front of the house is great for observing during high tide) and the rookery is just around the bend (be sure to go there during low tide). Binoculars are especially helpful, but not necessary.

    We really unplugged: watched shooting stars at night, used the fireplace, went for walks and enjoyed our time together. It was a great week overall. We were lucky to have come during a sunny work week when we saw fewer than 10 people walking past the house the entire time. So privacy is definitely a word I would use to describe the location, but I cannot speak for a weekend or holiday break.

    The window/chairs sold the place for us! All the equipment worked without any problems. We used the two black chairs, which were comfortable, although I agree with another reviewer that the master bed was uncomfortable. We were just two people, and the space is cozy but has a good floor plan to accommodate more. On a practical note, be sure to bring a hair dryer. Although the rental is toasty, not having a hair dryer makes a difference if the weather is cold and you plan to step outside.

    One unpleasant matter that hit us upon arrival was coming to a house full of bugs: ants, house flies and fruit flies. We called the office right away and the next day they brought some traps, sprays and a vinegar bath for the fruit flies. According to the rental office, the house had tenants the night before so it hadn't been sitting unused. It was a disappointing first impression that left us questioning the cleanliness of the kitchen/hot tub.

    Like I said, we enjoyed the stellar location, but because we had been looking forward to this week away, this initial detail kind of left an unpleasant taste for us.

    This is a place you will never forget and has the most beautiful view of the sea. The hot tub is excellent and you have a view of the sea on one side with a beautifully landscaped garden on the other side. The house is well equipped and although the couches are not the most comfortable the two chairs make up for it. We love this house and always feel rejuvenated when we leave!

    We stayed at Whitewater Retreat in Sea Ranch for 10 days in July 2016 and had a wonderful time. We would definitely recommend it as a scenic, ocean view place to stay in Sea Ranch. While looking out the window as we were watching videos, the ocean was so close we could almost touch it.

    We own a home at Sea Ranch but it is being rented out full time now so needed to get up and rent another home. As always, the weather was perfect. We arrived in the rain but by Saturday morning it was dry, clear and crisp. The home was perfect for our needs (four adults), and the amenities (other than wifi which had no signal on Sat and Sun) were just what we wanted. Beautiful view, home and accommodations. Would definitely recommend this home to anyone wanting a view from the bluff.
