About the owner: My siblings and I grew up in the Mendocino Coast, and love to visit as often as we can. We live in different cities throughout California, but our favorite place continues to be Gualala and it's surrounding towns.

My sister and I graduated from Saint Mary's College of California. I am currently pursuing my PsyD, and my sister is working on her MA.
We have taken some of our friends to Gualala, and they immediately fall in love with this magical place. Some people have never even heard of Gualala! Go ahead and experience this beautiful and peaceful place. You will probably want to keep coming back like we do. Let us help you plan your stay. Bon Voyage!
