About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8 (6 adults)

Wake up to panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean at this gorgeous Sea Ranch home, a secluded three-bedroom escape with an ocean-facing deck and hot tub, community access to swimming pools and saunas, and a stunning interior filled with upscale furnishings and cozy coastal charm.

Scenically situated in an open meadow just west of California Highway 1, this two-level home is located in a quiet neighborhood half a mile north of Stengel Beach. You'll be just half a mile from the pool, saunas, and tennis courts at the Ohlson Recreation Center, one mile from the famous tide pools of Shell Beach, and five miles south of the markets, shops, and restaurants in downtown Gualala.

An ideal setting for a family vacation or a romantic getaway, the living space is a beautiful blend of comfort and style. The steel cable railings, well-placed track lighting, and elegant furnishings and fixtures add a touch of modernity to the home, while the warm redwood beams, incredible cork floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows help bring the wonders of nature inside.

Make yourself at home in the first living room, where you can curl up with a book on the sectional sofa, throw a few logs in the wood-burning stove (firewood is provided), and watch for whale spouts on the ocean horizon. Move into the second living room to catch up with your loved ones by the gas fireplace, plug your iPhone into the sound dock, and use the WiFi to stream a few tunes.

Stock up on groceries at the Surf Market in Gualala and prepare breakfast each morning in the gourmet kitchen. Use the Keurig to whip up homemade lattes, spread out your ingredients on the granite countertops, and prepare scrambled eggs and pancakes with the stainless steel appliances. The gorgeous wood dining table has seating for six, and a dishwasher is on hand to take care of the plates.

Unfold the newspaper and head outside to the ocean-facing deck, where you can read in the sunshine and watch for deer in the surrounding meadow. Come lunchtime, you can light the gas grill on the front porch, sit down to eat at the patio table, and reconnect with your loved ones as you enjoy the view.

Spend your afternoons at the Ohlson Recreation Center, swimming in the heated outdoor pool, relaxing in the sauna, or playing tennis, basketball, and volleyball with friends. When you come back home, you can warm up in the private hot tub on the enclosed garden patio, pile on the sofa, and choose a DVD to watch on the flatscreen cable TV and Blu-ray player (with 3D capability) in the living room.

With three bedrooms, a loft, and two full bathrooms, Sentinel Ridge will accommodate eight guests (including a maximum of six adults). You'll sleep soundly in the master suite, which features a king-size bed and a bathroom with a wonderful multi-jet shower. The other two bedrooms have a queen-size bed and a pair of twin beds, respectively, and they share a bathroom with a stall shower.

The loft is accessed with a ladder-style staircase, offering a comfortable sofabed that overlooks the kitchen, dining room, and living room. You'll find a second flatscreen TV and a DVD player in this space, as well as a private washer/dryer on the main floor for all of your laundry needs.

Beloved by architecture enthusiasts, nature lovers, and Northern Californians in search of relaxation, Sea Ranch is a magical place to rest and unwind. When you're not swimming laps at the Ohlson Recreation Center, you can take hikes along the incredible Bluff Trail, watch for whales at Gualala Point Regional Park, or tee off at the Sea Ranch Golf Links just four miles north on Highway 1.

Take an afternoon drive to the Point Arena Lighthouse 24 miles north, and return home to watch the sunset on the sand at Stengel Beach. Look for starfish, anemones, and other sea creatures in the tide pools at Shell Beach, and keep an eye open for harbor seals playing in the waves.

It's always the right time for a Sea Ranch escape - book your next vacation to the majestic Northern California Coast today!

About Vacasa of Sonoma County

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.

Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.

Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Sea Ranch Escape

  • 5 of 5

This house has a great layout. Not too big but a lot of different levels and areas to break up into smaller groups for family games or conversation.

Wonderful location and house!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great time at Sentinel Ridge and felt right at home. All the amenities are modern, the kitchen was even better equipped than our own, beds are confortable, bathrooms are up to date and cable service was a nice touch for our first day as it was pouring rain. We loved the gas fireplace and wood stove which made us feel warm and cosy. We also really enjoyed the view to the sea from all windows and the hot tub. We would definitely come back.

Not perfect but nice..

  • 4 of 5

Stayed there 2 nights with my family. My 80-year-old mother had some difficulty with the multiple steps on various levels so this is something to watch out for people with mobility issues. Overall the location is amazing and the views from the living room are outstanding. The bedroom window could've been better designed to take advantage of the view. The house is a combination of elegant touches in the interior (spacious, efficient, stocked kitchen with track lighting) but also needs updating and better cleanliness on the outside. We ended up not using the hot tub at all.
