Bovill on Shell Beach 384 Pipers Reach, Sea Ranch, CA 95497

You'll be within steps of the most beloved beach in Sea Ranch at this beautiful four-bedroom home, an oceanfront escape with gorgeous views of the water, a private deck and hot tub, and nearby access to community swimming pools, tennis courts, and saunas.

Dramatically situated on the bluffs that overlook the Pacific Ocean, this single-level home sits directly above the tidepools and sandy shores of Shell Beach. You'll be only a few steps from the Bluff Trail; two miles south of the outdoor pool, tennis courts, and saunas at the Del Mar Recreation Center; and five miles south of the markets and restaurants in downtown Gualala.

Comfortable, plush, and full of quintessential Sea Ranch charm, this home is the perfect getaway for families, groups of friends, or couples in search of romance and relaxation. Step inside to find a light-filled living area with natural wood ceilings, a soft sectional sofa, and a wall of windows that frame the open ocean.

Come home from an afternoon walk on the Bluff Trail to curl up with a novel in the cushioned window seat, set up a board game at the eight-person dining table, or throw a few logs in the cozy stone fireplace. Create a tranquil iPhone soundtrack for the sound dock stereo system, use the WiFi to plan your next hike, or watch a DVD, Blu-ray, or cable movie on the wall-mounted flatscreen TV.

Wake up each morning to grind your own coffee beans, whip up some homemade pancake batter, and read the newspaper outside on the ocean-facing deck. Back inside, the gourmet kitchen offers stainless steel appliances, green marble countertops, and a dishwasher to take care of the plates and glasses.

Leave dinner bubbling away in the slow cooker and head down to Shell Beach for a morning of wiffle ball and tidepooling. Come lunchtime, rinse off the salt in the spacious tiled shower (which is accessible from outside), light the gas grill for an afternoon barbecue, and sit down to eat with a panoramic view of the ocean.

In search of a bit more peace and quiet? Retreat to the sheltered interior courtyard to relax in the sunshine or play a game of cards among the strawberry plants and calla lilies. You can also grab your bathing suits and towels from the washer/dryer and soak in the soothing warmth of the private hot tub.

With four bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, this Sea Ranch home will accommodate eight guests. Watch spectacular sunsets on the deck before retreating to the master suite, which features a king-size bed, a private fireplace and flatscreen TV, and an attached bathroom with a tub and a shower. The second bedroom offers a queen-size bed among the bookshelves, while the third and fourth bedrooms have a queen-size bed and two twin beds, respectively.

Your little ones will sleep soundly in the provided Pack 'n Play. And although the Sea Ranch community has only sparse cell phone service, a landline phone is available for your ease and convenience.

As one of the best-kept secrets of the Northern California Coast, Sea Ranch offers a glimpse of the region in its incredible, untouched glory. Follow the Bluff Trail to reach Stengel Beach and Walk On Beach, make a morning tee time at the cypress-lined Sea Ranch Golf Links three miles north, or spend your days swimming and practicing your backhand at the Del Mar Recreation Center.

Take a leisurely drive on California Highway 1 to reach the Point Arena Lighthouse 23 miles north or the artsy town of Mendocino 54 miles north. Along the way, you'll find incredible cliffs and rock formations, as well as the best pizza in the area at Upper Crust Pizzeria in downtown Gualala.

Your unforgettable trip to Sea Ranch begins today - don't miss out on this incredible oceanfront home!

    The Bovill house has the perfect location - right along the bluff with a five minute walk to the beach. The various patios gave us options for our relaxation time, and even the front yard was like discovering a secret garden when we opened the gate. The beds and blankets were cozy, and the walk-in dual shower was a cool surprise. Wood paneling and older cabinetry make the house feel a little a dated, but the newer kitchen and bathrooms felt clean and modern. We loved our stay here and would happily return for another retreat.
