Sea Ranch house description
Be as active or relaxed as you wish. Our home gives you the opportunity to cook up a storm or choose from a number of local restaurants, read, nap, step out the door and hike the forest or ocean bluff trails, enjoy our private hot tub or go to any of three community complexes with heated pools, sauna, tennis courts. We are in a banana belt spot with more sun and less wind than the ocean bluff. We have a panoramic ocean view, with much wild life you can watch from the living room (deer, wild turkeys, rabbits, many variety of birds, and the occasional fox).
Our recent remodel allows a cozy, secure environment with heated floor, efficient wood stove, double pane glass, comfortable furniture, all within an original, traditional Sea Ranch style home where "living lightly on the land" is practiced.
We encourage you to come sample our bit of paradise--you will keep coming back, as we have done for 35+ years!

Thanksgiving week at Horizon--WONDERFUL!
Thanksgiving week at Horizon--WONDERFUL!
Thank you so much for letting us rent your lovely home. It was an absolutely wonderful stay at Horizon--so aptly named. Stepping into the main room each morning to the wrap-around view of the ocean was quite a treat. Also, your decor and facilities are very nice; it was great to stay in a place that is obviously a home, as opposed to many of the places we have stayed which are investment properties and not very well equipped for cooking and feeling at home. I usually travel with a kitchen utensil bag--my favorite knives, tongs, tools, etc. for just that reason. However I didn't need to open it at Horizon since your kitchen is so well stocked. We also particularly liked your Cobalt glass dishware--very elegant. We had a thoroughly relaxing, rejuvenating stay at Horizon, and hope to be back next year!

Our mini vacation could not have been more relaxing, breathtaking and peaceful. Your home is beautiful, has all the amenities to make it feel just like a home-away-from-home. We loved the heated floors, hot tub and living room. The quick trails behind the property were a fabulous way to start the mornings, and sitting on the deck listening to the ocean made all my stress disappear. We expect to make this trip again. You were such hospitable owners. Thank you!!

The comments which follow are all from guests who have stayed at our home in The Sea Ranch."We have been coming to sea Ranch for over 15 years, but never have we enjoyed such a magnificent view…now we are sold on the hillside rather than the meadow.""Thank you for a much needed and deeply enjoyed nourishment and soul renewal…I really appreciated your design integrity and your son's beautiful photographs. Your style so represents the early Sea Ranch vision.""We were pleasantly surprised to see how special your home truly is. We are usually out and about every minute we are here. This time it was a pleasure just enjoying every minute watching the birds, water and scenery. You truly have a home away from home.""We have enjoyed the energy of the sea, the sights and sounds that come from the coast. We wandered the tide pools, hiked the bluffs, and strolled on the beach. Thank you for cultivating a pleasant house with attractive ambience!""Thank you, for the experience of staying in this lovely home…the great view…the sweet garden…the wonderful steam shower…our days on the beaches and walks, walks, walks.""We enjoyed every minute of our weeklong honeymoon in your home. We are in awe of the spectacular views from your living room. We enjoyed watching the hawks soar above the Pacific and the deer casually wandering around in your meadow. You have a lovely home, which offers wonderful warmth to its guests.""Perfect place for celebration of a Birthday! Peaceful and serene. You sure have a great green thumb! Your garden is an inspiration. We'll be back!""This is such a spiritual place. It puts everything into perspective…I can tell that this house has had much love in it and we thank you for sharing it with us."

Why the Owner Chose Sea Ranch:
Sea Ranch is one of the few places where I totally relax and drop all of the "every day" issues that consume so much of our energy and thoughts. To me it is an escape to recharge one's batteries.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Total comfort in a mild climate with as much or as little to do as I wish.
