Property description

Charming beach cottage in the desirable south end of Sea Ranch. Two bedrooms, each with king beds and separate bathrooms, large living room with wood burning fireplace, gourmet kitchen, vaulted wood ceilings, warm and sunny decks and beautiful views of ocean, meadow and mountains. A stone’s throw from the Bluff Trail and the ocean and a short walk to Pebble and Black Point Beaches and the Sea Ranch Lodge. Located on a quite, dead-end street far from the highway. Recently enhanced with skylights, new hot tub and deck, wine cooler, appliances, carpet, furniture, granite countertops, custom decorator touches and lots more. High Speed Wireless access, computer and iPod ready surround sound system!! Bring your work and all your tunes and stay an extra week.

The Sea Ranch is internationally known and revered for its attempt to blend man-made structures with their natural setting. This most picturesque area of California, 100 miles north of San Francisco dotted with distinctive homes, spreads for about ten miles on either side of Highway One in the coastal Sonoma County. The building design is unique in its architecture, and the challenge to 'live lightly on the land' is on-going.

With three swimming pools, saunas, tennis courts, a 18-hole championship golf course, and 45 miles of hiking trails that meander along the coastal cliffs, through meadows and forests, there is no shortage of outdoor activity for your Sea Ranch vacation. And after a hard day of having fun, soak in the spa, have a glass of wine and enjoy the sunset over the ocean.


CANCELLATION POLICY: Dates will remain available until the Owner receives 50% (percent) of the total rental fee plus applicable taxes (hereafter referred to as the Deposit). The remaining balance is due 15 days prior to occupancy. Should you wish to cancel your reservation, notice of cancellation must be in writing or via email. Cancellation requests received 30 days or more prior to arrival date will incur a $20.00 booking fee and remaining Deposit will be refunded. If you cancel less than 30 days prior to occupancy and we are unable to re-rent the home for the same dates, no refund will be provided and all monies paid by guest will be forfeited to the Owner. Reservations made less than 15 days prior to occupancy will require the full amount paid by credit card.

Year Purchased: 2003

Why the Owner Chose Sea Ranch:
Sea Ranch is without equal. The ocean, mountains, wildlife - a little something for everyone in one of the most pleasant and tranquil climates on the planet.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A four mile hike to Two Fish Bakery is definitely on the agenda to start each morning. The hike begins after stepping out the front door and into the coastal meadow which surrounds house. Slowly the pounding of the surf receeds as you make your way from the ocean and into the trees and up the ridge. Tall redwoods tower over head while ferns blanket the ground. Once conquering the ridge, a well-deserved sticky buns awaits at Two Fish and pleasant downhill walk home.
