                  Car: Necessary

                  Gualala lies within the “Banana Belt”, a nearly fogless micro-climate involving about five miles of coastline from Gualala thru Anchor Bay. While the wind blows onshore for the rest of the coast it is practically offshore here, keeping the fog from drifting in. When the marine layer of fog blankets the coastline, to the north and south, Gualala often basks under clear blue skies watching the huge bank of fog offshore.

                  The village of Gualala lies at the southernmost edge of Mendocino County along Shoreline Highway One and perches on the bluffs overlooking the Gualala River and the Pacific Ocean beyond. Just ¼ mile east of Highway One is the magnificent Gualala Arts Center, which hosts ongoing art openings and exhibits, concerts and live theatrical productions, lectures, classes and both arts-related & community events.

                  The beautiful Gualala River runs to the sea right in front of the village, and is home to river otter, osprey, egret, heron and many varieties of flora.

                  Other Activities: kayaking, wildlife viewing, art gallerying

                  Golf: The famous Sea Ranch Golf Course, a Scottish style course, is just a mile or so away. A great, scenic round of 18 holes in a grand north coast of California setting !


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: Judy and I take our golden retriever with us to the coast and enjoy beach walks as well as hiking on the Gualala Bluff Trail. Living in Berkeley we enjoy the active life of a great metropolitan area like San Francisco provides. However, our time at SeaWatch in Gualala gives us time to re-energize and refresh in a quiet place close to nature. We both have had busy lives in educational administration and value the balance in our lives that time at SeaWatch provides for us.

                  Why the Owner Chose Gualala:
                  After 'studying' the North Coast from Stimson Beach to Fort Bragg we found Gualala to be just the right combination of village atmosphere, artistic culture, good restaurants and most sunny days. We wanted an ocean (blue & white water)view and less than a 3 hour drive from the Bay Area. Our SeaWatch vacation home in Gualala has been the perfect match.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                  We enjoy the opportunity to just 'kick back' and refresh in the solitude and sounds of the surf.
