Property description

Relax in a lovely ocean-front home: watch the sun set over the ocean while sitting on the large deck,or in the living room with its picture windows,or from master bedroom. The fully fenced yard has a play structure that your children will love, although you may want to take them to Cook's Beach, which is just a mile north, or any of the other wonderful beaches nearby. Our house is 1 mile north of the town of Gualala, with its galleries, bookstore, spas, grocery stores and restaurants, and 3 miles north of the Sea Ranch golf course, with its beautiful views of the ocean. But you may not want to leave the house, with its cozy wood-burning stove, comfy home-made quilts and the constantly changing play of light and birds over the ocean.

PLEASE check our calendar and use the on line form at the right to make a request.

There are 3 bedrooms: the master bedroom is upstairs and has a queen bed, the other upstairs bedroom has 3 twin beds, and the downstairs bedroom has a queen bed. There are two bathrooms, one with a tub (complete with tub toys for the tots) and one with a shower. A single bed on a sleeping porch/entry and futon in the living room provide extra sleeping possibilities. We have satellite TV reception and WiFi, but you would probably rather be in the large hot tub overlooking the ocean, which at night, under the stars is far better than TV or internet!

The kitchen is small but very functional, with an electric stove and oven, toaster and microwave. The washer and dryer are in the hallway to the bathroom, convenient for washing those sandy clothes. The fenced yard and deck make this an ideal place for dogs, which are welcome, especialy Great Danes and Golden Retrievers.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: We live in Oakland California and get to our Gualala home as often as possible, but with family, friends and work it is less than one week a month so we prefer to have the house occupied when we cannot be there.

Why the Owner Chose Gualala:
We love the area. It has the advantages of seclusion but with beaches, restaurants, stores and galleries near by. The view of the ocean is spectacular in all seasons.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Looking at the stars at night from the hot tub. Watching the sunset from the deck. Taking our dog to the beach. Hiking in nearby Gualala Point park. Entertaining the grandkids on the swing set.
