Open views of coastal meadows and the Sea Ranch Golf Links await at The Thirsty Whale, a light-filled Sea Ranch home where you can vacation in peace, quiet, and comfort. In this lovely spot just east of Shoreline Highway, you'll be on the edge of the golf course, a quick walk from the famous oceanfront Bluff Trail, and less than a mile from the outdoor pool, tennis courts, and saunas at the Del Mar Recreation Center.
As you enter this two-level home, you'll be welcomed by a great room with vaulted ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, and a wall of windows that frame the golf course and the ocean in the distance. It's a space where you can curl up in a window seat with a good book, recline on a sofa to watch TV, or sit down at the dining room table to play cards or share a homemade meal. The kitchen is open to the living area, offering every essential appliance and a breakfast bar for two.
After a day spent golfing, tidepooling on Shell Beach, or whale-watching at Gualala Point Regional Park, you can find a comfortable seat in the fresh ocean air on the wrap-around deck. There's a private washer/dryer where you can toss the day's clothes, a gas grill to fire up at sunset, and free WiFi to help you keep in touch with work if need be. At night, you'll find one bedroom on the main level and two bedrooms downstairs.
As one of the hidden jewels of California, Sea Ranch is beloved for its unspoiled landscapes, plentiful wildlife, and awe-inspiring beaches and trails. A quick drive will bring you into tiny Gualala for groceries, a few charming restaurants, and art galleries. In the mood for a breathtaking coastal drive? Follow California Highway 1 north for 21 miles to reach the spectacular Point Arena Lighthouse.
