Wake up to panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean at this gorgeous Sea Ranch home, a secluded three-bedroom escape with an ocean-facing deck and hot tub, community access to swimming pools and saunas, and a stunning interior filled with upscale furnishings and cozy coastal charm.

Scenically situated in an open meadow just west of California Highway 1, this two-level home is located in a quiet neighborhood half a mile north of Stengel Beach. You'll be just half a mile from the pool, saunas, and tennis courts at the Ohlson Recreation Center, one mile from the famous tide pools of Shell Beach, and five miles south of the markets, shops, and restaurants in downtown Gualala.

An ideal setting for a family vacation or a romantic getaway, the living space is a beautiful blend of comfort and style. The steel cable railings, well-placed track lighting, and elegant furnishings and fixtures add a touch of modernity to the home, while the warm redwood beams, incredible cork floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows help bring the wonders of nature inside.

Make yourself at home in the first living room, where you can curl up with a book on the sectional sofa, throw a few logs in the wood-burning stove (firewood is provided), and watch for whale spouts on the ocean horizon. Move into the second living room to catch up with your loved ones by the gas fireplace, plug your iPhone into the sound dock, and use the WiFi to stream a few tunes.

Stock up on groceries at the Surf Market in Gualala and prepare breakfast each morning in the gourmet kitchen. Use the Keurig to whip up homemade lattes, spread out your ingredients on the granite countertops, and prepare scrambled eggs and pancakes with the stainless steel appliances. The gorgeous wood dining table has seating for six, and a dishwasher is on hand to take care of the plates.

Unfold the newspaper and head outside to the ocean-facing deck, where you can read in the sunshine and watch for deer in the surrounding meadow. Come lunchtime, you can light the gas grill on the front porch, sit down to eat at the patio table, and reconnect with your loved ones as you enjoy the view.

Spend your afternoons at the Ohlson Recreation Center, swimming in the heated outdoor pool, relaxing in the sauna, or playing tennis, basketball, and volleyball with friends. When you come back home, you can warm up in the private hot tub on the enclosed garden patio, pile on the sofa, and choose a DVD to watch on the flatscreen cable TV and Blu-ray player (with 3D capability) in the living room.

With three bedrooms, a loft, and two full bathrooms, Sentinel Ridge will accommodate eight guests (including a maximum of six adults). You'll sleep soundly in the master suite, which features a king-size bed and a bathroom with a wonderful multi-jet shower. The other two bedrooms have a queen-size bed and a pair of twin beds, respectively, and they share a bathroom with a stall shower.

The loft is accessed with a ladder-style staircase, offering a comfortable sofabed that overlooks the kitchen, dining room, and living room. You'll find a second flatscreen TV and a DVD player in this space, as well as a private washer/dryer on the main floor for all of your laundry needs.

Beloved by architecture enthusiasts, nature lovers, and Northern Californians in search of relaxation, Sea Ranch is a magical place to rest and unwind. When you're not swimming laps at the Ohlson Recreation Center, you can take hikes along the incredible Bluff Trail, watch for whales at Gualala Point Regional Park, or tee off at the Sea Ranch Golf Links just four miles north on Highway 1.

Take an afternoon drive to the Point Arena Lighthouse 24 miles north, and return home to watch the sunset on the sand at Stengel Beach. Look for starfish, anemones, and other sea creatures in the tide pools at Shell Beach, and keep an eye open for harbor seals playing in the waves.

It's always the right time for a Sea Ranch escape - book your next vacation to the majestic Northern California Coast today!

    We had a wonderful family get together and the house was the perfect size in terms of bedrooms - we loved the open floor plan and modern kitchen. The view was amazing and the deck and side garden were lovely. It is centrally located and easy to get to a beach access or the rec center. We'll be back!

    My family and I (5 adults) enjoyed a wonderful relaxing 4 days in this delightful home. The view from all the living areas, the master bedroom, and the deck was absolutely spectacular and the house was equipped with everything one could possibly need. It was a short walk down to the ocean bluff trail with easy access to two beaches where we observed lots of curious sea lions gawking at us. The living ares provided plenty of room for all - and the bedrooms where nicely situated for privacy and bathroom access. Although we did not take advantage of the hot tub, it was also located in a lovely area for star gazing. We would recommend this lovely property for anyone looking for natural beauty along with peace and quiet.

    I'm extremely hesitant about writing an honest review about this place, only because it is such a find that if word gets out I'll never be able to book it again. Ive been going to Sea Ranch for about 10 or so years and this is one of the best places Ive ever stayed. You really feel as though you are in someone's (upscale) home, not a rental unit by any stretch. Everything is brand new and nice, not the usual rental furnishings that are the hand-me-downs from a home and all have that tired, second-tier look. I think most of the stuff was from Crate and Barrel or CB2. Everything was new and looked it. The place is impeccably clean, from the bathrooms to the bedrooms, it's spotless and high quality. The kitchen is very well-equipped with really great appliances and well organized, everything you need (and more) is there. The living room has a huge new TV with satellite and the sofa and chairs are great to just kick back and watch movies or get lost in reading. Windows everywhere with views of the ocean, the house is elevated a bit so you get a great vantage point. Used the hot tub the first night that had beautiful views of the ocean. The house was a great jumping off point for walks along the beach too. I can have a pretty critical eye and being from San Francisco we can sometimes have unfair expectations but this place was *fantastic* in every way! Highly recommended.
