Sea Ranch bungalow description
Step into a light filled well decorated cozy 2000 sq ft beach house. New windows throughout. Breath in the calm and beauty of The Sea Ranch. You can cook in our gourmet, well-stocked kitchen (including sharp knives) with newer appliances, or search out the local restaurant scene. There are two local excellent grocery stores a short drive from our home.
Watch the whales during migration in the spring and fall from our deck, or upstairs bedroom, while you snuggle into one of our comfy fabulous beds. Read a book, or watch a movie you brought with you or choose from our library. Play a board/card game. Go golfing, kayaking, diving. Do nothing.
Clear night skies can be viewed in the hot tub. Watch the shooting stars show, sip a glass of wine and watch the sunset. Listen to the gentle waves breaking on the nearby cliff while you sleep and read. Observe the local wildlife such as deer, raccoons, fox, hawks, osprey, gulls, pelican, resident sea lions, and much much more. If you want to stay connected, we how have complimentary wireless internet.
You will feel rested and refreshed after spending a few days at our beautiful beach house. Would be difficult to find a nicer place to hang your hat.

Great place for larger groups
Great place for larger groups
The three bedrooms with three attached baths make it great for families or three couples (the master bedroom is extra nice and spacious). It is well maintained and appointed and the main living area is very welcoming and comfortable, with a very nice kitchen. We have been to other Sea Ranch properties before, and though this one doesn't have expansive water views, we really enjoyed the comfort, the proximity to Gualala, and access to the Internet! (Bonus: the owner is very responsive and friendly!)

Perfect getaway with friends
Perfect getaway with friends
My boyfriend and I stayed at Playa Linda for the weekend with some friends and their two children. I had never been to Sea Ranch and will definitely be back. We had such a great time, we wished we had booked for a longer stay! There's so much to do and see. I would have liked to spend more time exploring the nearby trails along the beach and the cute towns that were close by. The views from the house are gorgeous. The Playa Linda is a perfect size for 6 people and looked just as in the pictures. We didn't feel crowded at all. There is a fully stocked kitchen with everything you could possibly need. The bathrooms have towels and shampoo and conditioner in the showers. I loved the rain style shower head in the upstairs bathroom. The upstairs linen closet has linens as well as toys and coloring books for the kids, which they enjoyed using. We loved relaxing in the hot tub with a glass of wine while listening to music. The portable radio is compatible with your ipod/iphone which was great! Everything was well maintained and very clean. My only complaint was that none of us could get the gas fireplace to work (otherwise I would have given 5 stars). We followed the book of instructions to no avail. We were more interested in the ambiance than for warmth, which is why we didn't bother to call for assistance. But other than that, the trip was wonderful! We hope to make this an annual trip! I would like to add that Linda was very courteous and made handling the reservation a breeze. She was always good about returning my emails and calls. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Owner response: We are happy to hear of your great stay at our beach home. I do wish you would have let us know re our newer fire place - we were up there a couple of days prior to your stay and fireplace was good. Sometimes the wind blows out the pilot light - we can advise you via phone and/or there is a little instruction booklet behind the pilot light. Please do come back and see us again. Ken & Linda Lamb
What a fun little getaway! This house was immaculate and charming. We have 4 teenagers who were pleasantly entertained with the heated pool, hot tub, ocean walks and Apple TV (of course). The beds were very cozy. The Kitchen was well equipped with high-end cooking gear (hooray!). Also enjoyed Shell Beach and all the walks throughout beautiful Sea Ranch. We will be back for-sure!!

Wow! What an amazing time my family and I had at Playa Linda. We were there for 3 weeks and there was never a dull or boring moment, even for my two daughters who are 9 and 4. We hiked, kayaked, swam, relaxed on the beach, went on bike rides and mountain bike rides, visited the light house, spent a lot of time in the hot tub, golf, and much more. We also frequented Two Fish bakery. The house and location was better than its description and the whole feel of the place was warm, comfortable, cozy and very clean. The views were magical; ocean out the back windows and redwoods out the front windows.The home was spacious and the girls loved having there own rooms as well as bathrooms. The kitchen had everything we needed for some really great meals. Linda, the owner, was very helpful and made the whole vacation easy and enjoyable and I would definitely recommend Playa Linda to friends and family. We can not wait to go back next summer!

Lovely, well-equipped home

Two other couples stayed here with my husband and me to attend our niece's wedding. The location was perfect for us -- very close to the Del Mar Recreation Center, which has excellent lap swimming and is my new favorite pool against which I will judge all others. The kitchen had everything we could possibly have needed. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. Close to beautiful trail walks, and a short drive to Gualala for groceries. I'll definitely return if my nephew gets married here too.

Owner response: We feel just like this when staying at Playa Linda also! Thank you for taking the time to let us know - come back soon!
We had a wonderful time at Playa Linda. The home was comfortable and the perfect fit for our family. We walked along the bluff trails every day and saw the whales migrating and seals swimming and sunning themselves. The hot tub at night under the stars was fantastic. I look forward to returning to this wonderful home in Sea Ranch. JB

Amazing weekend getaway!
Amazing weekend getaway!
Playa Linda is exactly what we needed. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves, waking up to an amazing view of the ocean, hanging out in the hot tub, hiking down to the "rocks," hitting town or just doing absolutely nothing but relaxing inside the beautiful home by the fireplace - every moment was perfect. The house is not only in an amazing location, but also has everything you need and more. The kitchen may even be better equipped than my own kitchen at home! There were so many thoughtful, homey touches throughout - lots of fluffy blankets/pillows, cool sea themed decorations and even a complimentary bottle of wine. Beyond that, Linda was absolutely wonderful during our dealings with renting the house. She checked in to make sure we didn't need anything and even remembered that I have a young son and made sure to leave out lots of goodies for him - coloring materials, stuffed animals and games. We can't wait to stay at Playa Linda again. Thank you so much for everything!

Owner response: What a generous review Rachel. Please do come back as soon as you can. This is the way our kids and grandkids feel about our home by the sea. Thank you for taking the time to go online and tell us your experience. Best to all of you, Ken & Linda

Thank you for sharing your property with us.
We want to thank you for sharing your lovely property with us. We both have very stressful jobs and your home allowed us to relax and unwind, yet stay in touch with work if need be. We took many long walks on the countless trails and beaches in the area, enjoyed the warm pool, but probably the best experience was sitting out back in our sleeping bags under the most amazing star filled sky. We saw 10 shooting stars in just 90 minutes. Can't wait to come back again! We will surely tell our friends about your fabulous home. Don't change a thing!

We had a wonderful visit and are sad to leave! Our two young boys loved finding all the lighthouses in the house and coloring in the loft. We appreciate the touches you've made to make it feel more like a home then a rental. We hope to return soon - its such a true getaway. Thank you!
