I can't thank Tom & Susan enough for sharing their slice of heaven with us. The view is beyond amazing. The furniture is comfortable & their house was very clean. It was much bigger than we expected. The hot tub was pleasant and there are touches of thoughtfulness throughout the cottage. IE. Robes, spare blankets to snuggle, land line if we were without service. Their suggestions getting to their location, and other suggestions. They thought of everything. It was hard to leave knowing that we were in the most beautiful part of the country. Amber October 2014 Imagine your vacation here. Looking out your French doors to this white water ocean view with the sounds of crashing waves relaxing like a great massage.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Susan and I met in 2000 and discovered we both had the desire to live close enough to the ocean to see and hear the ever changing ocean and waves. As a professional photographer I could not be happier with our surroundings. In five minutes we can be walking amongst huge old redwood trees along the Gualala River or kayak on the very same river or standing on the beach. Susan finds a wealth of inspiration for her various artwork creations along this coastal area.
Why the Owner Chose Gualala: Susan and I found this 2 acre property and saw the potential of having an incredible view of the ocean and well as the sounds of the waves crashing below. After building the our house we completed the Ocean Cottage in August of 2006. As you can read in the guest comments log, many people call the Ocean Cottage their favorite vacation get away. Come find out why.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The views are larger than can be shown on this site. Whales, Pelicans, osprey complete with a dangling fish, hawks, ravens as well as numerous other birds entertain as only nature can. Seeing the ever changing ocean will keep you fascinated for hours. If you are a dog owner, there is an off leash beach 1 mile from the cottage. We take our border collie, Dave, almost daily.
