About Ted Seymour
Many interests including writing, photography, travel, fermentation, website development, and healthy food preparation. I love spending time in the home myself too. Such a magical place to recharge, gather with people special to me, and stroll the ever changing beach.
Ted Seymour purchased this House in 2007
Why Ted Seymour chose Fort Bragg
I came to this area on a road trip in 1998 and rented a small home just behind the lot where this home is now located. I woke up in the morning and the view included a 'for-sale' sign for this land. I hadn't even been looking to buy something, but it was so beautiful here that I panicked and put in an offer that day. The next day, they accepted my offer and the rest is history. I personally designed the home and actually built it myself too, completing it in 2007. Oh happy day! It is simply a stunning location, very quiet, yet still near to town, endless views to the north and south.
What makes this House unique
Easy beach access - no cliffs to worry about slipping down. About 100 yards or so outside the front door and you are in the sand. The house is very well stocked and maintained as the owner lives in the home for part of the year.

Ted was kind and very easy to get a hold of and helped make sure everything was in order. Kitchen is very well stocked and usable. We all loved the bench seat /reading nook , can hear ocean great there. The hot tub under the stars is truly magical. One of our favorite places !
Perfect Northern California Beach Home
We looked for a place for 6 friends to celebrate a birthday. The guest of honor requested 1) beach access for long walks (check), 2) ocean view (check), 3) easy drives to great food and shopping (check). Sea Sanctuary was that and more. Serene and peaceful, there was a spacious great room with several quiet places to read or rest, a yoga room, and a hot tub with spectacular ocean views. The home was very well supplied and checking out was a snap. Our host was very thoughtful, leaving clear notes and labels and responding quickly when we had a question.
If you’re looking for the perfect Northern California beach retreat, this is it.
Place is incredible! I woke up every am and walked about a half mile south and spent some time with the harbor seals. The house is perfectly situated In a state park! Views of the sea, the waves crashing, quiet and fresh air was amazing! Thanks for having us
We loved it here! The home was so cozy and perfect for our relaxing getaway. Waking up every morning to the sound of the waves was incredible. Ted was very accommodating and made this trip hassle free. We will definitely be returning!!
Perfect house, perfect location.
My group (4 adults & 2 small children) rent a house in fort bragg a few times a year. So, I feel confident when I say, this is the best rental in fort bragg! Ample space, well stocked kitchen, gorgeous views, fabulous proximity to perfect beach & tide pools... I could go on and on. Ted was amazing to work with and has done a wonderful job creating a space that feels like home. Where as most house rentals feel like barely more than a hotel. I loved sitting on the front deck watching the sea and cyclists and passerby’s. Next time I’ll bring a bike. Loved the back deck in the morning with its ample sun and quaint gardens. My children loved the loft- a truly unique touch. We also foraged fresh mussels from the tide pools (a stones throw from the front door) for a few meals- highly recommend! We look forward to revisiting The Sea Sanctuary again and again. Thank you Ted!
Celebrating Thanksgiving with my large family was amazing. I've never stayed in a home with such a well stocked kitchen (a cook's dream). Enough separate rooms to give everyone their needed space and the views from all windows was breathtaking. I personally parked myself in the bay-window (even slept there). The owner was fabulous to work with (very patient with a senior citizen like me). With the exception of one bed that was not useable, it was a totally wonderful experience. Highly recommend!
Glass Beach - in old days, the trash dump was in one spot on the ocean front. Now all that remains there are countless smooth pieces of glass!
Many restaurants, great hiking, many beaches, great boutiques and spas. There is a great indoor public swimming facility in Fort Bragg (CV Starr Center), tennis courts, petanque courts, whale watching, seal colonies, migrating birds for great birdwatching. Horseback riding on the beach available near the home as well. The Skunk Train does tour rides out into the redwoods including an open air train car. And many more options for entertainment.
