September Haus sits on the hillside overlooking the stunning rugged coast and Pacific Ocean. Locals think we have the best weather here with our unique hillside micro-climate away from bluff-born winds and above the fog in the meadows. We have seen wildlife: deer, wild turkeys, foxes, rabbits, marveled at the hawks soaring overhead and the whales spouting during their migrating season. September Haus invites you to relax, meditate and reflect. Some guests come to write; others are inspired to paint the White Barn, a Sea Ranch landmark. Yet if you wish to be active, you may enjoy the many hiking trails to the bluff or into the forest starting from September Haus. Or you may walk on the beaches and explore the tide pools. Check out the many other activities listed below.

Activities (on site or nearby): Hike, bike, ride a horse, play tennis or golf the resort links; take a sauna and swim in one of the three heated pools (the Ohlson Rec center - is just a five minute walk from September Haus). Play basketball, volleyball; enjoy group yoga, go horseback riding, fishing, shelling, or wine tasting. There is a golf course and a landing strip. In Gualala, seven miles to the north, you will find grocery stores and many boutiques.

Sonoma County TOT certificate # 657N. Quiet hours 10:00pm to 7:00am. Max 4 guests, 2 cars.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As we entered, my wife saw a wild turkey. It was an omen. We have had beautiful weather and have enjoyed exploring the area. Your house offers a perfect framing for our impressions on our first trip here. We would enjoy another stay. Thank you for making your home available.

PS. We so enjoyed the view from your LR windows. It is beyond price!

Star gaze. The owner is a super lady and easy to work with. Sea Ranch Lodge has good food as does Gualala, especially St. Orres, north of town. I highly recommend September Haus.

The home was very cozy and the owner is a pleasure to work with; great communication. The property is ideal with wonderful ocean views and a hearty morning walk to the shoreline.

On Top of the World View

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing home with a million dollar view of the ocean. My daughter and I had a very enjoyable and relaxing visit to Sea Ranch for Mother's Day. Hiking the Bluff Trail from Gualala to Walk In Beach was stunning: seals, birds, flowers and the ocean what more could you ask for? The town of Gualala is a huge surprise: Upper Crest pizza is delicious and casual, the Surf grocery store is as tasty and fresh as Trader Joe's, Trink's has incredible homemade breakfast and lunch (everything homemade: tuna fish, bagels, salads, etc), even the hole in the wall Mexican food restraurant had unique and delicious meals. If you want a fancier but not too fancy place consider dinner at Sea Lodge with yummy food and outstanding views of the sunsets over the ocean! Lastly, we had Gordon, a 25 yr massage, therapist come to the home for massages. Gordon worked out my calcification in my shoulder and gave me more range of motion which was a huge bonus!

We hope to be back and would definitely love to stay again at September Haus and get to work with Kathleen who is very helpful.

September Haus

  • 5 of 5

The owner is very easy to work with and made sure our stay was wonderful. The condo is beautiful, inspired us to go home and make some changes. The kitchen is awesome for 3 women to cook and prep in at the same time and is fully stocked with everything - updated appliances, top of the line pots and pans, ... The view is spectacular! The weather was rainy, cold and very windy but we were happy to be in the living room watching the weather outside. We are looking forward to our next girl's weekend at September Haus.

Beautiful Views-Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is a peaceful spot at the top of a hill-overlooking the meadows and ocean views. Many other places at Sea Ranch are at the beach, but due to the ridge line, they do not actually have a view of the ocean. Not true here! We sat on comfy chairs right by the meadow, and also on the upstairs

balcony. All beautiful.

The property is immaculate and everything you need for cooking, including the barbecue outdoors.

The owner is easy to work with, and helpful with providing information and answering any questions.

We enjoyed a couple of meals at the Sea Ranch Lodge, which is one of the best venues around the area.

We would definitely stay here again!
