Find rest, relaxation, and unbounded natural beauty at this two-bedroom Sea Ranch home, where you'll have a private patio with views of the ocean, access to the community's swimming pools and saunas, and an ideal location a few steps from the golf course and the Bluff Trail.
This airy, single-level home sits on the ninth hole of the Sea Ranch Golf Links, offering guests immediate access to the Salal Trail, the Del Mar Meadow Trail, and the oceanfront Bluff Trail. You'll be one mile south of the beach and whale-watching spots at Gualala Point Regional Park, two miles north of Walk On Beach, and two miles south of the galleries, shops, and markets in downtown Gualala.
An ideal escape for a romantic getaway, a couples' retreat, or a family with grown children, this home is also just one mile from the Del Mar Recreation Center, where you'll find a heated outdoor pool, saunas, and two tennis courts.
Step into the foyer to be greeted by lofty exposed beam ceilings, tile floors, and a beautiful chandelier that adds a sense of occasion to your trip. This entryway opens into a bright and modern living room, where you'll find two sitting areas with plush sofas, soft white carpeting, a chinoiserie screen, and even a baby grand piano to provide a soothing vacation soundtrack.
Grab a newspaper at the Surf Market in town each morning, and curl up by the wood-burning fireplace as the morning fog retreats (wood is provided). Plug your iPhone into the sound dock, use the free WiFi to stream your favorite playlist, or choose a book from the shelves and savor the morning quiet.
Move into the full kitchen to grind some fresh coffee beans, heat up the waffle iron, and get a head start on a delicious homemade breakfast. This well-equipped space has a center island, two sinks, and appliances that include a stainless steel refrigerator, double ovens, and a dishwasher. Sit down to eat at the dining table for six, and open the surrounding glass doors to let in the crisp ocean breeze.
Take a morning stroll along the Bluff Trail in search of whale spouts, and return home to soak in the sunshine on the patio. This wrap-around space offers lounge seating and gorgeous views of the ocean below, as well as a gas grill and a small table for casual lunchtime barbecues and al fresco dinners.
Grab your bathing suits from the private washer/dryer and spend an afternoon or two swimming and playing tennis at the Del Mar Recreation Center. Back at home, you can relax in the living room as you catch a baseball game on cable or choose a DVD from the library to enjoy on the flatscreen TV and Blu-ray player.
With two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, this Sea Ranch home will sleep as many as six guests (but it is more comfortably furnished for four). The sunny master bedroom features a king-size bed, doors that open to the outdoor space, and a private bathroom with a tub, a stall shower, and a bidet. You'll find a full-size bed in the guest room, as well as a queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room.
Additional amenities include one more bathroom with a shower, a study with vintage couches and a small collection of books, and a landline phone for local calls (as cell phone service can be spotty in the area).
As one of the best-kept secrets in Northern California, Sea Ranch is a community of architectural wonder, incredible natural scenery, and complete and utter tranquility. Fill your days with long walks on the Bluff Trail, rounds of golf at the neighboring Sea Ranch Golf Links, and a bit of whale-watching at Gualala Point Regional Park just one mile north.
Watch harbor seals play in the cove at Walk On Beach, or head a bit further south to admire the sea life in the tide pools at Shell Beach. Looking to explore some more of the Northern California Coast? Walk the streets of Gualala to peruse the eclectic galleries and restaurants, or catch an unforgettable sunset at the Point Arena Lighthouse 21 miles north up California Highway 1.
