The Sea Ranch development has 10 miles of coastal access which includes beaches, coves and cliffs. It has an outstanding variety of marine wildlife and prime whale watching locations. It is a superb bird watch location.

There are abundant deer, birds and small mammals throughout the development which can generally be viewed most times during the year.

There are three recreational areas with swimming pools, saunas, tennis courts and bath facilities. The closest pool is 1/2 mile from our house and is an Olympic size pool with great views.

There is a dog park 1/2 mile from our house which can be driven to or you can have a pleasant walk with your dog down one of the private trails on Sea Ranch.

There are 45 miles of private trails through diverse types of vegetation and topography. There is a 10 mile coastal bluff trail that has spectacular views.

Sea Ranch has a private, summer swimming area on the Gualala River that has picnic tables and chemical toilets.

All of this is accessible when you rent our property.

The Sea Ranch Lodge has ocean views, a bar and fine dining. There are also numerous restaurants in Gualala which is only a 5 minute drive from our house. Gualala is a charming little town with two grocery stores, a wonderful gym, unique shopping opportunities, art galleries, gas stations and other conveniences.

Our house is located 1/4 mile from the 18 hole Scottish links style golf course.

The Mendocino coast continues north up Highway One from Gualala and provides access to many historic picturesque towns, recreational areas and State Parks.

To the south is Salt Point State Park and the Fort Ross State Historical Park. Fort Ross is the site of the Russian settlement in California.

The area where our house is located is one of the most fog free and sunny areas in the Sea Ranch. It is quiet and a great place for relaxing and enjoying the outdoors.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Wanda and I live in Sonoma County and use our Sea Ranch house as our retreat. We enjoy our walks and our time spent here.

Why the Owner Chose Sea Ranch:
Sea Ranch is a very special place where the residents actively protect the unique attributes of the coast. The homes are designed to blend into the nature and scenery of the area. There are no street lights to spoil the night time skies. It is a great place to escape the dense population and traffic of the bay area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We chose our lot to build our house on because of its quiet location away from the frequent visitors along the coast. It is in a cul de sac with only four other houses in the vicinity.
