  • Very enjoyable experience

    "We stayed at Playa Linda recently for Thanksgiving week. What I really appreciated was the extra service provided by the owners, and the overall cleanliness and the extremely well stocked kitchen. Even had some spices and basic condiments available. Having to buy pepper and salt, cook with 2-3 basic pans and most of all having to CLEAN the home after staying have always been sore spots for me; HERE none of that is true. I even emailed the owner Linda and asked about their wine cooler. She said help yourself. Some of the wines have their own name on the bottles, and I understand they were very enjoyable (I don't drink). The one downstairs bedroom does receive noise from the bedroom directly above it, as there is NO insulation under the floor of the upstairs bedroom. That would be the only thing I would criticize. It might be worth fixing. I really appreciated the accommodating welcoming spirit of the home and it's owners. To those who would take issue with small things, I would suggest trying a stay in one of the homes offered by some of the biggest agencies at Sea Ranch. When you can't do basic cooking and have to do your own maid service before you leave you will appreciate an owner who bothers to stock their kitchen (with wine even) and has a cleaning service hired for you as part of the rental. Nice views from most rooms. There is a fireplace in the main living area facing the ocean, so if you must have a full on panoramic view of the ocean you might look elsewhere. I found there was plenty of open window views of the ocean and meadows. It was quite refreshing and peaceful, as Sea Ranch is meant to be. BTW it is also quite close to Gualala for those quick shopping trips. The outdoor area is well fenced for security for smaller children. We found the media to work fine. My bed was extremely comfortable (downstairs). It felt like the others were comfortable and well stocked with linens and warm comforters. There is a telescope in the loft on the mezzanine. Don't know about a Girls getaway. I'm not a girl (woman). Seems like it would be well appointed for that purpose. If you didn't have a car, you would have to find a way to get to town or be sure to bring your own groceries when you arrive. If you wanted to bike to town it would be close enough to do that. Lots of nice walks through the meadow and close to the beach and bluff walks."

  • Fantastic Gualala Getaway

    "My wife and I recently took a few days to relax in Ebbtide. The booking itself was handled through CoastingHome and went smoothly. We could not have been happier with the house or the location - there were stunning views of Pirate's Cove and the ocean. Highly recommended, I don't know why there's only one other review posted! The recommended Thai takeout was pretty good, and the pesto pizza from the recommended pizza place was great!"

  • Beautiful time of year to visit & kayak on the lake

    "Once again my family and I have come back to the lake house for a weekend of relaxation and fun. My wife, baby, best friend, myself, and even our dogs enjoyed our time at the lake and the comforts/amenities we have come to expect when we visit the lake house year after year. We were delighted to experience beautiful, mild, and clear weather during our visit which allowed us to launch our kayak from the boat launch and beach area on the property. It was such a amazing feeling to kayak with ease in the calm, glass-like water as we took in the views of the picturesque surrounding mountains. We also enjoyed relaxing on the nicely furnished patio while watching and waving at the friendly bass fishermen going by during the day. We thoroughly enjoyed the peacefulness and quiet as we gazed at the breathtaking sunrise and sunsets each day. Our dogs were excited to run around the fenced in property and play, and our baby giggled as she fed the ducks that came to visit us each day. We are already looking forward to our visit next year. Thank you Lisa for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful house on the lake."

  • Family vacation

    "Modern 'cabin' home on Smith River, lovely back yard with easy river access. Well stocked kitchen, and amenities included. Easy access to great hikes. Everything was sparkling clean, and the owners were incredibly helpful. The area does not have great restaurant options, but we ate at home and were very happy with that."
