Gualala house description

Enjoy the sound of the surf. Watch the whales frolicking by on the Mendocino Coast from this modern, well-appointed home. A large, very well equipped kitchen (remodeled 2013) will appeal to the cooking enthusiast or party gathering. If the oven, microwave, convection oven, stove top are not enough equipment for your planned feast, there is a large propane BBQ. Four bedrooms - three have their own bathrooms. One is equipped with wide entry and multiple grab bars for persons with mobility or balance challenges. The two master bedroom baths have jacuzzi tubs. The Hot Tub Bedroom is downstairs adjacent to the hot tub.

There are 3 satellite TVs - 2 with DVD/VCRs and one additional TV with DVD/VCR - and an additional TV equipped with VCR and DVD player. The North Room TV is an HDTV with a blue ray DVD player. There is a large selection of books and videos to enjoy or just relax in the loft or in the great room with its 16 ft red cedar ceiling. Window seats abound for viewing the changing coastal sites or catching a few zzz.

There is 4 person hot tub on a deck with fine views of the surf. There is an awning that can be opened to protect from any inclement weather. You can lounge on the hot tub deck or take morning coffee on the front deck.

The house boasts a collection of illuminated lighthouses and a cozy wood burning fireplace. The outside garden provides fresh rosemary and sage to add to your special creations
Keywords: big well-equipped kitchen, open floor plan, disability access, ocean views, perfect for parties and reunions
