Hike along the Bluff Trail and take morning strolls to Walk On Beach from this three-bedroom Sea Ranch escape, a dog-friendly home with a private hot tub, community swimming pools and tennis courts, an enclosed yard with a firepit, and sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean.
This secluded, single-level home sits close to the rugged bluffs that Sea Ranch is known for, offering guests immediate access to Walk On Beach at the end of the road. You'll be one mile south of the Del Mar Recreation Center (which offers a heated outdoor pool, saunas, and two tennis courts), less than a mile from Shell Beach, and four miles south of downtown Gualala.
This ocean view retreat is an ideal home base for families with children, a couple looking for romance, or a group of friends. It's also next door to the three-bedroom Samson Getaway, creating a convenient setup for multi-family trips (please call Vacasa for additional details).
Upon entering the living space, you'll be greeted by high ceilings, a spacious sectional sofa, and a wall of windows that overlook the ocean. Use the provided logs to build a fire in the stone hearth, choose a good book from the shelves, or sit down at the coffee table to play a board game with your children.
Wake up each morning to watch deer roam through the coastal meadows, and make breakfast as a family in the full kitchen. This cozy space is equipped with standard appliances, a dishwasher, plentiful cabinet storage, and an adjacent dining room with window-side seating for six.
Take a brisk morning walk with your dog along the Bluff Trail, but please note that a small nightly pet fee applies. Look for seashells and starfish on Walk On Beach and return home read the newspaper in the enclosed garden, light the charcoal grill for lunch, and sit down to eat at one of the two patio tables.
After long days of playing wiffle ball on the sand, you'll have an outdoor shower to help you rinse off and WiFi to assist in posting photos of the fun. Take an afternoon soak in the private hot tub, roast marshmallows around the outdoor firepit, and end the evening with a DVD movie night on the flatscreen cable TV.
With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, Anam Cara will accommodate a total of eight guests. Two of the bedrooms have a queen-size bed apiece, while the third bedroom has two sets of twin-size bunkbeds that are a delight for small children. You'll also have use of two bathrooms with full-size tubs, a stereo system, and a washer/dryer for all of your laundry needs.
As one of the most tranquil escapes on the majestic Northern California Coast, Sea Ranch is a wonderful place to relax into nature. Spend your days swimming and practicing your tennis serve at one of the three recreation centers, or play a scenic round of golf at the Sea Ranch Golf Links only two miles north.
Explore the rugged beauty of Shell Beach and Stengel Beach, watch for whale spouts as you walk on the Bluff Trail, and take a late afternoon drive to admire the sunset from the Point Arena Lighthouse 22 miles north. Just remember to pick up a few delicious pizzas at Upper Crust Pizzeria on your way back through Gualala.
