Gorgeous Oceanfront House w/Private Hot Tub, Shared Tennis, Pool, Sauna & More

Comfort, privacy, and natural beauty come together at this three-bedroom Sea Ranch home, a lovely oceanfront escape with an outdoor hot tub, patio, and garden in a gorgeous blufftop setting! The open and lofty living room is lined with windows, filling the space with sunlight and incredible ocean views! Relax by the window as you watch for playful harbor seals, or gather for movie night around the flatscreen cable TV and DVD player. Whether you're preparing happy hour snacks or cooking full meals, the open kitchen is a well-equipped and social space. The deck features an outdoor dining area where you can enjoy your meals al fresco and also admire the magnificent views! Your private patio (where the hot tub is located) offers a nice space surrounded by plenty of trees and equipped with another outdoor dining area and a gas grill in case you’d like to enjoy a cookout.

You will have access to all three recreation centers in Sea Ranch. The recreation centers are Del Mar Recreation Center (north), Moonraker Recreation Center (south), and the Ohlson Recreation Center (midway). Del Mar has an Olympic lap area and a children's swim area. It also includes saunas. Ohlson includes a pool with a lap area and a children's swim area. There is also a family sauna, as well as men's and women's saunas. Moonraker has a traditional pool without separate swim areas. The amenities pass is attached to the parking pass you will receive at check-in. It only allows for six guests.

This prime location sets you only steps from the Bluff Trail and the crashing ocean waves. Situated within earshot of the Pacific Ocean, this waterfront home is less than two miles north of Black Point Beach. You’ll be perfectly located for hiking, whale-watching, beach-combing, golfing, and driving along the spectacular California Highway 1. Catch at least one sunset glimpse of the Point Arena Lighthouse and Museum, a beautiful historic landmark located 27 miles north. You'll find the awe-inspiring Bluff Trail just a few steps outside your door, as well as grocery stores, shops, and restaurants in downtown Gualala only nine miles north. Located at the north end of The Sea Ranch, 7.8 miles away, the Gualala Point Regional Park features six public access trails on The Sea Ranch, each leading to a separate area of the coast.

My husband needed a vacation and this is our second stay here. Lots of naps, staring at the ocean, and hikes. This house is on the bluff and very clean. Tons of space to hang out together or apart (we have teenagers).
Christian R. Apr 2022
The house was great. It is so well located. so close to the shore. The house was very spacious, perfect for 3 couples. We loved watching the view from the outdoor patio or the living room. The kitchen is very well equipped. The only things that were missing were Champagne glasses...
Robert E. Apr 2022
We loved the high ceilings, beautiful light, and access to the trails running north and south of this property. We'll want to come back!
Elizabeth H. Feb 2022
Loved the house. A few items need updating. Blu Ray not connected to TV. Otherwise a great home in iconic Sea Ranch
Laurie V. Jan 2022
Great place to stay. Awesome views from most parts of the house. Couple of issues with sockets in both bathrooms and high pitch noise from master bathroom shower. Over all I would definitely recommend this beautiful home.
Manager response:
Laurie, we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your time at our phenomenal home! We apologize for any aspects of the home that you found in need of attention and appreciate your feedback as a means to improve. We have passed your comments along to our property manager to review and address. We hope to host you for a truly carefree 5-star getaway in the future!

Being within hearing distance of the ocean was fantastic. We saw whales on 2 days just past the rocks.
Plenty of room.
Margaret S. Sep 2021
There were 3 of us and we loved every bit of the house. The star of the show was the location..it would be difficult to find a more spectacular bluff top situation. An unobstructed white water, rock view with a hedgerow just 20 steps to the North with an amazing, private outcrop to enjoy morning coffee or evening sunset. Everything was spotless. Loved the slide-through window from the kitchen to a shelf facing the BBQ. A nice, big parking space for both our cars and a lovely hot tub. The only thing we would change would be to make the fireplace functional...other than that, well...perfection!

We have a wonderful stay at Casa Bella al Mare. The view and location were all that you could wish for in Sea Ranch. The home is spacious and really takes advantage of the view from inside the living room and outside on the patio. The kitchen was fully stocked and well organized. Felt much more like a warm home than a colder vacation rental which is exactly what we wanted.
Jane C. Apr 2021
This is my second visit to this wonderful home I have already booked another visit for a year from now to celebrate my birthday my sons and I had an outstanding stay this past weekend thank you for letting us use your beautiful place

I’ve been coming to Sea Ranch for decades and always stay in bluff houses. This house trumps all in its spectacular view, deck and window seats. But an FYI to future renters. Although this house looks huge, the 2 end wings are privacy locked. It certainly did not impact the visit, just a heads up if you’re expecting access to the huge house pictured.
Pamela B. Mar 2021
Featuring one of the best views in all of Sea Ranch, Casa Bella al Mare is a superb, but pricey, choice. The house was just what we were looking for: a relaxing living space, a large, well-supplied kitchen, and very comfortable beds. Every detail is well thought out, including deck and patio furniture that dry quickly after a rain shower. We spotted dozens of migrating whales from the living room, dining room and bedroom--all of which had spectacular views. One minor area for improvement is more/better wine glasses. (There were only 3 full size glasses.) We also wished the fireplace had been an included amenity--but we did know in advance it was not. We enjoyed our stay at Casa Bella a Mare immensely. On our final day, a rainbow lit the sky, surely a sign we are meant to return.
Manager response:
Hi, Pamela! The homeowner currently provides 3 stem wine glasses and 6 stemless wine glasses; their preference is stemless as they break less often. Thank you!

Perfect location on the coastal trail. Immaculate view. It is a simple rental house. Similar to what you might find in Tahoe as a ski rental. Basic furniture, basic beds, basic kitchen. It was clean and everything worked. If you are looking for a simple base of operations to explore the coast, this house is perfect. If you are hoping to be smothered in luxury, this isn’t it. It was perfect for me but just want to make sure expectations are properly set for others. No complaints however. Well situated house.
Jane C. Dec 2020
Thus home was perfect in every way. The views exquisite. The hot tub was a terrific treat. It was spotless filled with every amenity.
We plan to come back very soon. I have always lived The Sea Ranch. It was my 55 year old son and I. What a treat. Thank you
Cecilia M. Oct 2020
Everything I said above is true. The only disappointment was that the gas grill was not working and it hadn’t been cleaned for a while.
Gayathree M. Aug 2020
This home was in a good location and the kitchen was well stocked. However we were horrified to find a giant pile of dead bugs and worms under the furniture in one of the bedrooms and a stench of mildew in both bathrooms. We do appreciate Vacasa sending someone to address the bugs in the a timely fashion however the experience was still unpleasant.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us! We are glad you enjoyed the home. We are sorry to hear about the issues you encountered during your stay, but we are glad that our local team was able to address your concerns in a timely manner. This home has been thoroughly reviewed and no pest infestation has been found. Bugs that were found in the home were dead and were harmless. We appreciate your feedback, and we hope to have the chance to impress you in the future!

Amazing view....even the rain storms! Grateful for the opportunity.
Michele S. Oct 2019
This house was perfect for my daughter and I... the view from the time I woke up, to the moment I closed my eyes, had me thinking I was in heaven. Ever grateful!
Michele & Ellie . Oct 2019
My daughter and I cannot begin to thank you both for opening your beautiful home so others may be gifted with the magic that exists here. We are ever grateful to have spent time here leaving footprints on the sand and sharing wishes with the ocean. We look forward to returning to this secret bit of Heaven on Earth!
Alrenz . Oct 2019
The location of this home is outstanding! The views from every room and the proximity to the coastline are magnificent. Add to that, the details of the home and one is in Heaven! Terry & Bill have made their home so welcoming & there is nothing lacking for a perfect stay! Enjoy as have I!
