Property description

The Sea Ranch is a world-renowned primary and secondary home community along a 10-mile stretch of California's most breathtaking, beautiful coastline. The Sea Ranch is particularly famous for its strict architectural standards, following the motto 'building light on the land.' (Houses intentionally have unobtrusive sidings and modest appearance in order to optimally blend into the environment). Casa Pacis shares three lot lines with commons areas and the 4th with an undeveloped lot, which provides for exceptional privacy. The Sea Ranch territory includes tens of miles of private roads, many hiking trails, three recreation centers that are open to renters (free or charge), and a challenging 18-hole golf course. Features such as no street lighting, fences not to mark lot lines but only to shield cars from outside view, no overhead power lines, no sidewalks, and no roof-top antennas clearly differentiate Sea Ranch from normal 'suburbia.'

Located directly above the Sea Ranch's most beautiful sand dunes, at a cul-de-sac near 'Walk-on-Beach,' this cozy home has picturesque ocean views from every room. Our 'House of Peace' has large wrap-around decks and lots of privacy.

The 'Casa Pacis' home has approximately 1150 square feet of rented living area, including a view loft. It features ceramic tile floors and wall-to-wall carpets, as well as vaulted ceilings in all rooms. Large windows, comfortable furniture, a cozy conventional open fireplace, and decor will contribute to making your stay pleasant and memorable. The kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances. Enjoy the extra-large deck area with built-in hot tub (with ocean view), and the overall uniquely private yet close-to-ocean setting.

* This home is available year round, subject to prior reservations.
* Cleaning service and linens are provided.
* Refundable damage/security deposit is required for each rental.
* Rental occupancy limit is three adults.
* No Pets, no Smoking, no Children (exceptions possible).
* You will find more information and pictures in our specific website (see link below).

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1982

About: Ever since we discovered The Sea Ranch in 1970, it remained our favorite vacation destination. The natural beauty is, every time anew, amazing. The climate at Sea Ranch is markedly warmer and sunnier than elsewhere on the Central California coast (from Monterey to Bodega Bay).

Why Sea Ranch:
We discovered Sea Ranch shortly after we had immigrated to this country, and immediately fell in love with it, probably because it reminded us in natural beauty of the Amalfi Coast in Italy and in climate of the German North Sea islands. We purchased our lot and built Casa Pacis in 1983 and enjoyed every minute of our numerous stays in this gorgeous environment ever since. It is remarkable that, even though many years passed since we first visited Sea Ranch, the unique character of this incredible place has been preserved. Including a serious renovation effort in 2010/2011, much of the interior and exterior is like new.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
--- Close to ocean and ocean waves sounds; --- unobstructed ocean views from everywhere inside; --- lots of privacy, peaceful location --- next buildings far away (undeveloped lots in front and back) --- 200 feet from to desirable bluff trail
