Gualala house description

Seacroft is the perfect setting for your coastal getaway with friends and family or for that special occasion. We are proud to say our guests rate our home and its amenities 5 out of 5 stars in their reviews.

Seacroft offers a 360-degree view of the majestic Mendocino coast from its vantage point on its own coastal 'croft' or hill. This large 3000 sq. ft., 3-level, contemporary home is located west of Highway 1 in a small, upscale neighborhood at the north end of town. The vibrant downtown is a mere 10-minute walk away. The first whale you'll spot from Seacroft is 'Bubbles', the handcrafted whale sculpture in our front garden, who signals your arrival at our home.

The 30-ft. ceiling, stone fireplace, and wet bar along with the crashing white water views make the living room a cozy hang-out. The large upper level master en suite has its own private deck and gas fireplace. The separate loft area has a day bed, telescope, and library of books, games, puzzles, and movies to enjoy when not gazing at the white water views. The spacious lower level en suite master has direct access to the sheltered back garden and main level hot tub deck, electric fireplace, mini-office, and poker table for gambling enthusiasts. The two master suites are separated by the main level with two more bedrooms, a bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, living and dining rooms, and kitchen with a breakfast nook surrounded by windows. Our renters say the kitchen is the best equipped they've ever seen in a vacation rental.

The living and dining rooms also have tremendous white water views. The main level deck is home to the hot tub, gas grill, and soaring 'Crow's Nest' deck with views spanning from Gualala Point Beach to the south, the vast Pacific to the west, Fish Rocks and Haven's Neck to the north and the redwood hills to the east. This deck is an ideal location for whale watching- Thar she blows! During the winter, the Crow's Nest offers a unique experience of 'being in the clouds' during oncoming storms. During the summer, it offers a private sheltered place for sun worshipers. There are four other decks besides. Did we mention the white water views? Yes, there are white water views from every deck!

We offer FREE WI FI accessible throughout the house.

Gualala ('Where the river meets the ocean') is a quaint historic timber and ranching town with approximately 600 full-time residents. Its draw as a popular vacation spot has resulted in a myriad of tourist-related businesses such as art galleries and shops and boutiques galore. Gualala may be small town, but it has big city amenities- two grocery stores, full service pharmacy, over a dozen restaurants in town and nearby, a bank, two gas stations, and churches of all denominations.

Besides whale watching, a typical day in the area might find you getting sand between your toes at one of the many surrounding beaches (the six Sea Ranch state park beaches are accessible by the public and we provide a day use pass for your use); walking along the bucolic trails and bluff edges at Gualala Point State Park down to the beach which separates the Pacific Ocean and Gualala River; driving through the towering redwoods; kayaking, fishing, or swimming in the pristine Gualala River; or golfing at the links in nearby Sea Ranch. Cycling along Highway 1 is unparalleled. If you're feeling lucky, head to the Garcia River Casino in nearby Point Arena.

Don't forget to include wine tasting during your visit because there are over 20 wineries within a 30- or 60-minute drive. Return to Seacroft with your bounty of fruit from the vine and settle on one of the decks or in the hot tub, smell the ocean, and soak up the sounds of crashing waves, calling ospreys, and barking seals as the sunset colors the sky with nature's palette. Don't forget to enjoy the white water views...
