Sea Ranch house description

Moonraker House is located approximately 107 miles north of San Francisco off historic and scenic Highway 1.
Our two bedroom, two bathroom home has an upstairs deck, private hot tub, WiFi, cable televisions, a fully equipped kitchen with bedroom linens and bathroom towels provided.
With 50 miles of private beach, bluff, and forest trails, picnic areas, tide pools, three recreational centers, two marine reserves, a fenced dog park, and an 18 hole championship golf course, there is something for everyone to do without leaving the local area.
Gualala, the closest town, is 8.7 miles north with grocery stores, specialty shops, restaurants, a bank, post office, and gas stations.
Six hundred fenced sheep and goats graze the common areas to eliminate fire hazards and follow The Sea Ranch philosophy of living lightly off the land.
The artist community of Mendocino is fifty-eight miles north and Fort Bragg is nine miles north of Mendocino. Both places are perfect day trips to explore, shop and eat. Charter boats are available for fishing and whale watching in Fort Bragg.
Grey whale migrate December through March and can often be seen off the shore or by boat.
Seal pups are born late March and early April and can be viewed from the bluff trail above the reserve.
Observe pelicans, cormorants, and oyster catchers from ocean bluffs and on the beach
Redwood violets and trilliums bloom around our house in March and April. Then in May and June the Rhododendrons are in full flower.
The Sea Ranch thespians present two productions a year, one in spring, and one in fall.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1990

                      About the owner: My parents purchased our family vacation home in 1990 after several years of renting homes on The Sea Ranch and searching for the perfect home for us. My father wanted a house in the forest and my mother wanted something close to the ocean. This home is the perfect blending of the two. My father, 80, is a retired teacher and my mother, 79, worked for the State of California. They still manage the property with help from myself and my teenage son, Josh. I am a special education teacher and have a small organic farm with horses, dogs, chickens, orchards and crops and live about ten miles from my parents in the Central Valley of California.

                      Why the Owner Chose Sea Ranch:
                      Robinson Jeffers, Carmel poet, said it well, 'the ocean gives perpetual music and the stone mountain its music of silence.'

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We are blessed to be able to share our peaceful home with you. Since our house is located in the forest, we do not have the foot or road traffic the other places do. We rarely see people or cars in the area or on the trails nearby and appreciate the serenity. The ocean, towns and beaches are closeby to explore and there are plenty of things to do in addition to just quietly relaxing in the redwoods.
