Inspired by Japanese tradition and stunningly situated in the midst of a coastal redwood grove, this Sea Ranch retreat is unlike any other. This tranquil studio home was seemingly tucked into the forest, with ferns growing right up to its edge and no trees removed to make way for its footprint.

Measuring at just 384 square feet, this studio-style home makes masterful use of its space, layout, and natural surroundings. As you step inside, you'll be greeted by a traditional tatami mat floor and lofty ceilings with skylights that let in views of the redwood canopy. Sliding glass doors on two sides of the house open to the wrap-around porch; additional sliding doors of delicate rice paper allow you privacy when you choose. The living room, the dining area, the kitchenette, and the bedroom (the futon) come together simply and beautifully in this one studio space. The streamlined kitchenette features essential appliances (including a gas stove and a dishwasher), a large window to gaze through as you cook, and rice paper doors that conceal the space when it's not in use.

You can unroll your yoga mats on the porch each morning, and sip a soothing mug of tea at the bistro table or the kitchenette island afterward. In the evenings, there's a gas fireplace to toast your toes as you read or choose a Netflix movie to watch on the wall-mounted flatscreen TV. When it's time to turn in for the night, the futon in the main living space folds out into a bed; an additional, high-end airbed is provided as well.

What's nearby:
This home sits among the redwoods on the east side of Highway 1 in Sea Ranch. You'll be practically around the corner from The Hot Spot, where you'll find picnic tables and barbecues on the Gualala River, and a little over a mile from Pebble Beach and the incredible Bluff Trail on Sea Ranch's ocean coast. The home is situated between two of the Sea Ranch recreation centers, with Ohlson two miles up the coast and Moonraker two miles down the coast (each offers a heated outdoor pool, saunas, and tennis). Downtown Gualala, where you'll find the Surf Market, charming Trinks Cafe, and other local favorites, is eight miles north.

Just as advertised, this sweet studio provided a welcome respite in the coastal woods. The place is well-designed and operates efficiently for a relaxing getaway. I especially loved the map that shows all the Sea Ranch trails.
