Sea Ranch cottage with private hot tub, shared pool, & sauna - near Bluff Trail

This Sea Ranch cottage is ideally located mere steps from Bluff Trail, where you can take a sunset stroll along the stunning Pacific coastline. This dream-like location and layout make this a great place to take a break from it all with your favorite person. Offering a private hot tub for guests to relax after a long day exploring the area and a private grill on the patio, take an evening to BBQ and split a bottle of wine in the wonderfully landscaped garden. After the sun dips below the horizon, call it a night and snuggle up next to the fireplace with a cup of tea and a novel.

Walk less than 1000 feet to catch the Bluff Trail and see the Sea Ranch harbor seals sunbathing on the rocky shelves below. For dining and shopping, take a three-mile drive north on Hwy 1 to the friendly coastal town of Gualala. If golf is your game, Sea Ranch Golf Links is less than two miles away. The course’s blend of undulating seaside landscape with Scottish links-style architecture was a first on the West Coast. Bring your tennis racquets and swimsuits because you will be conveniently located within walking distance to Del Mar Center, equipped with shared tennis courts, a beautiful pool, and saunas.

This place had the nicest courtyard we have ever seen in Sea Ranch. Very private and gorgeous plantings. Although it is an ADU we only saw the owner once soon after we arrived to make sure all was good. It's small and has very limited kitchen facilities but they are upfront about that on the vrbo website. I also missed an ocean view but it is very close to the bluff trail as the vrbo site says.

The Mini Me small home is a short wooded walk to the beach. There you can explore the Sea Ranch vibe, houses on the water and many different birds. Pretty yard with a nice hot tub.

The setting and cleanliness were perfect, access was easy

Nice place. Takes a long time for hot water to get to the sinks. Once there it’s OK.
Harvey P. Jan 2022
This is an excellent location in Sea Ranch with easy access to shopping and groceries. Mini Me is perfect for one or two people with great comfort provided by the King Bed in the loft and gas stove downstairs. There are also outstanding provisions for meal preparations.

The Bluff is beautiful for walking and accessing others who might be vacationing in this area.

We enjoyed the private courtyard and quiet sleep.
Karen W. Aug 2021
Everything we needed, beautiful location, lovely garden outlook. Kitchen a bit challenging for cooking and washing up! But we managed fine!
Dawn C. Aug 2021
Such a beautiful, quiet location. The guest house was stocked with everything we needed for a fantastic weekend, and a lovely gift basket! Just steps away from a truly beautiful, miles long beach trail where we saw seals and whales! Bananapants! I will definitely try to book here again!

The place is a small addition next to a much larger house. It was clean with comfortable amenities. The downside was the small kitchen and food preparation area. The lighting over the dining table was insufficient and dark at night. The wifi was very weak often knocking our phones and laptop off the signal - in fact, the wifi was absent at times requiring us to contact the management company to reboot the server or something. This was a significant annoyance. And finally, the hot tub water was murky. I had to ask the management company to send someone out to clean it. In spite of all this, we did enjoy our stay. It's a short walk to the bluff trail overlooking the ocean and a 20 minute walk to two separate beaches. Also it's a 3 minutes drive by car to the Del Mar recreational center if you like to lap swim.

This place was perfect for us! We walked the Bluff Trail, used the pool at Del Mar, and soaked in the hot tub. Had some nice meals at trinks Cafe in Gualala. Thank you for a very nice mini-vacation.

Awesome location in Sea Ranch, close to trails and just a quick drive into town. This guest house shares a yard with the Main House but feels private. House could use some deep cleaning, and de-cluttering. We noticed the floors were very dirty and there are a lot of random kitchen gadgets that likely aren’t being used. Some better storage systems would help the house feel less cluttered. The jacuzzi was nice but also looked like it could use a deep clean.
Manager response:

We are senior citizens so at first I was wary of the bedroom upstairs and the bathroom downstairs. But the bed is so very comfortable that it didn’t bother me. We both slept so well on the king size bed. There are 2 burners on a hot plate. I brought a crock pot but Mini Me was equipped with one. The location is wonderful and we enjoyed twice daily long walks on the bluff trail. It is near Gualala Regional Park(a short drive) and the lovely chapel. Because of COVID we couldn’t go in the chapel but it is especially interesting just before sunset. We use the hot tub twice during our 6 day visit and it was relaxing.

Great location
Steve G. Aug 2020
Perfect for one or two people that want to explore the coast around Sea Ranch and Gualala. Very nicely equipped and nicely furnished. Loved the propane fire place! Great location for walking the bluff trail. Bring bikes and ride the quiet streets of Sea Ranch. We didn’t use the hot tub so can’t comment on that. Small but functional kitchen. There is a tenant in the main house and we only saw them a couple of times. The hot tub is in an area that is visible from their living area.
Pamela B. Aug 2020
Perfect for anyone who appreciates well designed small spaces. Large windows and lovely garden access gives a spacious feel.
For one who wants to enjoy the expansive Pacific within steps and a cozy place of quiet to rest Mini Me is an excellent choice.
Bailey D. Feb 2020
This was a perfect spot to explore the area from. The home had everything I needed and the hot tub was clean and perfect. Couldn't have been better
