Recent Gualala reviews


    "Stayed at this beautiful house over a year ago. When you first walk in, you will see the most amazing view in the house. It is truly unreal! Wait until you see the sunset! The views from the master bedroom is unbelievable as well. We felt like we were on a different part of the world. The house is well equipped and nicely decorated. We used the hot tub for the 3 nights we stayed here. I do suggest installing some blinds for the front windows because we did saw a red car parked uphill peeking into the house. Which I did not like!! Only a 5 min drive to the nearest grocery store. This was a great vacation! Thanks to the owner for their beautiful home! I really want to come back!!"

    "Great home! Beautifully appointed rooms, comfortable but very elegant. Views from every room (the pictures are TRUE!) The owners are very easy to deal with, and have well maintained the property. Everything worked as promised, including the hot tub on the deck, jetted tub in master bath, laundry facilities, and kitchen appliances. We have already recommended to friends, and will check availibility first when returning to the area."

  • Another perfect vacation at Pelican's Nest

    "We have now made 4 visits to Pelican's Nest and I felt compelled to leave another (glowing) review. As has been mentioned again and again, between the perfect location and the well-appointed home it's hard to imagine a better place to take refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city. Gualala offers everything you need to stock the larder or even a casual meal out if you like. And there's all the other beauty of the north coast at your disposal in a central location But beyond the surroundings it's good to know that Marcie and Patty are such warm and concerned hosts who are genuinely interested in your comfort and well-being during your stay. Each time we return we feel as if we're being welcomed home after a long journey away. Even when there is the odd maintenance issue it has been swiftly addressed - Patty and Marcie are responsive and available, making certain that your stay remains "perfect". Finding a pet-friendly place as nice as Pelican's would be a huge challenge. Not only has our four-legged kid been welcomed but the proximity to the beach and even the quiet neighborhood give you plenty of options to help "fido" get his exercise. The only bad thing about Pelican's Nest is having to leave ... but we always know we'll be back. We've found our perfect slice of paradise by the sea!"

  • What an incredible little cottage!

    "I came to this little cottage on the coast for what I hoped would be a relaxing weekend, and I don't think I could have found a better spot! I'm already looking at my calendar to figure out when I can come back and bring my boyfriend because it would be perfect for a couple. Actually, I'd love to bring everyone I love to this place so they can experience the happiness I did while I stayed there. Having a solo weekend getaway was what I needed, and this place exceeded my expectations in a big way! I was comfortable and although I was alone this place didn't make me feel lonely. It's spacious, yet cozy, and it's pretty well equipped with most of what you'd need. The hot tub was divine, especially at night under the stars...or early morning you can watch the sunrise while relaxing in the hot tub. It was magical. There were a few minor things that I noticed and wanted to mention. The sheets and bedding had been washed in very heavy scented detergent, and it was a bit overwhelming. I'm sensitive to fragrance and have to admit it was hard to fall asleep because of the strong scent of the pillows and sheets. I'd suggest using detergent that is fragrance free for guests that have a sensitivity to that sort of thing. The other thing was the shower had a curtain only, but no inner plastic lining. So as I was showering I had to keep the actual curtain inside the shower because otherwise water was getting all over the floor...but in keeping the curtain inside the shower it was constantly sticking to me as I tried to shower. I'd recommend a simple, plastic shower liner so there's no water mess, the cute fish shower curtain doesn't get mold damage or ruined, and so guests can shower a little easier. These are merely suggestions, and not complaints. I had such a great time that these minor details weren't a biggie but I felt I should mention them anyway. All in all, I had a wonderful stay at Tom and Susan's ocean front cottage home. I want to thank them both for sharing this truly special place with me. Tom was very nice and I'm glad I was able to meet him right before I left. Unfortunately I was not able to meet Susan but hope to next time I stay. I met many locals and explored the surrounding area during me two night stay. The weather was absolutely fact, it was even hot and it's October! I couldn't have asked for a better getaway and it was one of the best weekends of my life, and one I will never forget!"
