  • Wonderful Sea Ranch Home and Cottage

    "Three families met here for the weekend and enjoyed the comfort and amenities, including the two beautiful hot tubs, large living area, fire place, wonderful deck and open layout, and especially the open views. We loved that it was dog friendly. Very comfortable place. Only suggestion for travelers is to be sure to take all of your own towels and linens (all of Sea Ranch vacation rentals require this). Wonderful service and the owner and property management company are very reasonable and kind. This as a great getaway spot for a large group!"

  • Family Weekend Getaway

    "My father and I (I am 27 years old) picked this vacation rental out based on its affordability and the view and proximity it appeared to have of the ocean. We were looking for a place by the sea to spend a long weekend with my boyfriend and my brother who was visiting from the east coast. Grandma's Cottage did not disappoint! The view was BEAUTIFUL. The unceasing roar of the ocean was just lovely to fall asleep to. Cute little place, reminded me a bit of an oceanside version of our family cabin in the mountains. Cozy nights were spent watching the darkening horizon with a fire in the wood-burning stove (fueled by earlier collected driftwood) warmed the house. We enjoyed daytime walks down to the beach to explore the driftwood piles and tide pools. Walks back UP were a little less fun, as the road is fairly steep, but it is not a long walk! To give an idea of the road/walk: us being moderately fit it was only a haul when lugging a beach-blanket full of wood back up with us. For those who cannot (or would rather not) make the walk there is a parking area at the bottom by the beach, so I would suggest driving down (slowly, it is steep/windy...) The beach being private access made it feel as if we were some of the only folks on the planet. Very cool. Although I suppose we were there in the off-season (mid-March) so there were maybe less people around than there would be in the summer. Our drive to and from brought us through a beautiful redwood forest and Mendocino was not too far either. Nice location. Everything was as described and maintained. The only thing we found to be out of service on our arrival was the wi-fi internet...we worried about this for about 30 minutes, then VERY quickly realized we were glad it was down. It was far more rewarding to be in the moment, by the sea, and with each other. Relaxing and freeing. I recommend pretending the internet is broken, even if it is back in operation when you visit! ;] PS-use the binoculars to scan the horizon for whale sightings, we saw some spout action out there."

  • It's the VERY best....

    "I don't like the word "miraculous" because in the vast majority of cases it simply overreaches. Our 2-day stay at Serendipity was miraculous. This is a wonderfully-designed home in a fantastic location on one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, at the mouth of a river, yet. From the deck we saw deer (duh!), multiple mama whales with their calves in reach-out-and-touch proximity, a peregrine falcon perched in a pine tree for 15 minutes just off the deck, beautiful sunsets and a connection with coastal nature that cannot be duplicated anywhere. My wife and I (60's) spent the time with her parents (mid-80's) and we were all thrilled. There are nice-enough restaurants in town or up the coast, but plan to eat your meals in the house. Bring your food or buy it at the local market and everything else is at hand. The owners of this house designed and built it to be lived in and absolutely everything you will need is provided. There are numerous opportunities close at hand for hiking, biking, kayaking and other adventures and Mendocino is only a few miles up the road. Trust won't want to leave the deck. P.S. I haven't even mentioned the hot tub which, on a clear night, gives a best-ever view of sky and ocean (stars visible to the horizon). And it works!! You will not be disappointed."

  • Peaceful and perfect for us!

    "We arrived just before it began raining for two days. We got to watch the river go through the changes of rising and muddy to blue/green and perfect for fishing right from the living room window of this cozy log cabin in the woods. The owners were nearby to answer any questions we might have had, but greeted us upon arrival and filled us in on the simple workings of things. Having plentiful wood for the stove as well as Monitor heat to take the chill off while the fire takes off made it a cozy place to weather the storm and enjoy relaxing for the remainder of the week. The kitchen was well-stocked with all the pots, pans, dishes, cutlery, glassware and even a dishwasher to make clean up a breeze. Lots of books, puzzles, playing cards, pads to keep score gave us much to do while we waited out the storm. We will definitely be booking this pet-friendly place again. Bill, Renay and their dog, Sasha were wonderful hosts."
