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.

Perfect Beach Home
Sea Sanctuary has every amenity a heart could desire, and the location is extraordinary.
We had a wonderful stay at the Sea Sanctuary!
We came to Fort Bragg to celebrate a wedding and we could not be happier with our stay. The house was so beautiful, clean, and inviting. I liked how Ted had labels throughout the house so there was no confusion where to locate an item or how to use electronics or appliances. Ted was able to communicate how to care for his home flawlessly.
My family loved the location of the home and my toddlers enjoyed spotting deer, quail, and squirrels in the early mornings.
The house was spacious for not only my family of four but my parents and brother as well.
I would recommend the Sea Sanctuary to anyone wanting to visit the Fort Bragg area.
Stunning ocean views
My family recently stayed at this home and the views are simply breathtaking. We loved walking the beach and seeing the birds and seals. The home had plenty of space to spread out and the kitchen was stocked with everything you need to cook a meal. The owner was very responsive throughout the booking process.
The location was convenient, quiet and only a few minutes drive away from downtown Ft. Bragg.
Our only feedback would be that this home needs a thorough cleaning. It was surface clean but there were a ton of cobwebs and the light fixtures were very dusty. Kids handprints on the fireplace and windows. Given the price, this should not be the case.
Thanks for your feedback. I had been in the process of replacing my cleaning crew (now have two excellent cleaners) and had been trying to catch up with deep cleaning. On that particular day during that transition, the cleaning was actually left to me. I try to pride myself keeping a tidy home but I must have personally missed some spots. I always tell the same thing to my cleaning crew that my guests are paying a fair price for their stay and i want to make sure they have a perfectly clean home for a 5 star stay. Thanks again for your feedback.
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
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.
